In Arizona and Texas, A Planned Parenthood Free-for-All
"Family planning:" The wholly innocent term infuriates the pro-life community. To them, it connotes Big Government abortions, the movie Juno and everything that is "morally wrong" with women's reproductive health (apparently, there is a lot). Since the female health service organization Planned Parenthood is the epitomization of this catchy phrase, it goes without saying that the pro-lifers would try anything they can to shut it down. And that's exactly what has been been happening this weekend.
By instantaneously cutting the organization's lifelines, Brewer and others have proven that their stance against Planned Parenthood does not exist in pragmatic reality. The fact that 4,000 women are left stranded is never part of the pro-life worldview - it's the primary point thattaxpayers
are paying for these ladies in the first place.
