Here is the reality.  Those politicians who scream the loudest about being “pro-life” often  are the quickest to vote against medicaid for those around the poverty level.  Additionally, they often vote against food stamps, maternity programs and assistance so that single mothers can work.

Finally, most who shriek about “pro-life” issues are the first to start yammering about defunding Planned Parenthood.  In reality, this simply means denying Medicaid reimbursement for women seeking medical (not abortion) services at Planned Parenthood.

Newsflash- contraception is your best weapon against abortion.

2 Thoughts to “As we head to the polls….”

  1. Watching

    From what I have read, teenage pregnancy is an almost certain predictor of poverty. It is difficult to get out of that cycle without easy access to birth control, often provided through Planned Parenthood. I will add that, ironically, the proposed tax bill eliminates the credit for adoptions. It is difficult for me not to question the morality of those that oppose abortion and access to birth control but are unwilling to help the resulting vulnerable population.

    1. Totally agree with you, Watching. The hypocrisy is simply astounding.
