DISGUSTING REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY ALERT – Tim Walberg: “I’m wearing a pink tie in solidarity with women’s health issues”

During the travesty that was the Congressional hearing on Planned Parenthood this week, there was plenty of disgusting hypocrisy coming from the Republican side of the aisle.

During #PinkOut Day Planned Parenthood supporters shined bright while detractors looked desperate & pathetic

In conjunction with the widely-successful National Pink Out Day yesterday, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards voluntarily appeared before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to answer questions about their funding.

#PinkOut Day – Don’t be fooled by Planned Parenthood’s bad rap

Most of the GOP candidates are aligning themselves with those who find themselves “appalled and disgusted” by what they’ve seen or claim to have seen in doctored and intentionally deceptive videos produced to re-energize a key GOP wedge issue. They are equating the legitimate transfer of embryonic and fetal tissue with trafficking in “baby body parts.” This is a new […]

#PinkOut Day – Shutting Down Planned Parenthood Will Cost YOU Money

#PinkOut Day – Shutting Down Planned Parenthood Will Cost YOU Money

I’m willing to concede that all of the recent fervor over defunding Planned Parenthood is generally well-intentioned. Those who would defund Planned Parenthood truly feel that they’re sticking up for what they believe in, and that pulling funding for Planned Parenthood would (a) reduce the overall number of abortions performed in the US and (b) constitute some kind of magic […]

It’s no secret that Planned Parenthood, an organization that does more to prevent abortions than any other, is under attack. It seems that Planned Parenthood is always under attack but this time the religious zealots in Congress are willing to shut down the government to end funding of Planned Parenthood and prevent them from offering the myriad health services they […]

Michigan GOP lawmaker: Planned Parenthood provides sex education for kids to drum up more abortion business

This past week my pal Amy Kerr-Hardin posted a now-viral piece at Democracy Tree titled “Michigan Lawmakers Propose Bill to Prevent Practicing Condom Use on Bananas“. She was writing about new legislation introduced by Republican Tom Hooker, H.B. 4883, that would, in part, prevent sex education teachers from allowing students to practice using condoms in class.
