PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS READY TO BE CHOPPED OFF THE BLOCK BY OUR LOVELY GOVERNMENT THIS MONDAY, AUGUST 24th, 2015!!!
PLEASE, DON'T ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!!
HERE IS INFO TO HELP!!
This is a re-blog/a copy and paste from the blog, http://www.meanprogressive.com/2015/07/pp.html I saw this on Google+ and I NEED to help!! I cannot sit here knowing there IS MEDICAL HELP FOR WOMEN, but the government wants to cut it??? Because the people who use it are single women who cannot afford medical insurance OR NEED to have regular screenings for breast cancer, etc. This is NOT RIGHT!!!
Have a moment with the information above. Imagine how many Medicaid patients in rural areas would immediately lose health care and cancer screenings if federal funding for Planned Parenthood were banned.
This issue is about women's health. Regardless of how many distractions we are offered or attempts are made to misdirect our focus, the necessity of Planned Parenthood in our country is profound. The millions of women who would completely lose their access to family planning and cancer screenings can not become irrelevant by those who mean to create controversies for votes. We must demand that women are more important than that.
Because the issue of abortion is a wedge issue and some of our politicians are presently trying to compel their base to rally support so they can get a spot in next weeks Republican debates, Rand Paul has determined to have a Senate hearing Monday to eliminate all funds to Planned Parenthood. They have allowed for hysteria to distract themselves and their constituents from the essential work that this group is doing. As none of the federal funds go toward the issue they are debating, it is insulting to think they would be holding a hearing to get rid of monies which are directly used to care for women and families.
My hope is for every thoughtful human being who reads this to take a quiet moments reflection on what our society is telling us when our legislators, those we hire to represent us and our needs, spend so much of their time trying to create laws to remove our rights and offer so much of their energy trying to take down a single organization whose sole mission is to care for the needs of American women. This all comes down to one issue. That issue is abortion. Abortion has been legal for 40+ years now. The majority of Americans support freedom of choice. Even many Republicans support that right.
This is the list of Senators who are a member of the Republicans for Choice, a group who believe that the GOP principles should embrace freedom of choice. Please reach out to them if they represent you and remind them what it means to be representing your healthcare needs.
Susan Collins of Maine: @SenatorCollins
Mark Kirk of Illinois: @SenatorKirk
Lisa Murkowski of Alaska: @LisaMurkowski
The Man who is proposing this bill has this on his fundraising page. Make sure that he and the companies united to support women in this country understand that Americans think that the nations objectives should embrace the rights of women, as well.
The above was written by Senator Rand Paul. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
Please contact these companies today and thank them for making the health of women a priority while compeling them to contact the Senate and insist our government do the same. Thank you.
If you contact the companies through Twitter make sure to use the hashtags:
#WarOnWomen and #NOW as they trending and will make more people aware of the companies who support women's healthcare!
