I Thought It’s Planned Parenthood’s Job to Supply the Free Contraception

| Comments (1)

First, I cannot believe that in 2012 America the hottest topic of conversation among politicians, media types, and, apparently, very active law students, is contraception.  Didn’t our nation already travel this road during those halcyon bra-burning “women’s lib” days of the 60s or whenever that was?

Second, this so-called outrage comes on the heels of the most recent national brouhaha regarding the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s financial support of Planned Parenthood.  Excuse me, but did we not glean from that illuminating passion play that Planned Parenthood rakes in gobs of dough, not only from the United States government, but also from the likes of organizations dedicated, not to planning parenthood, but to the prevention of breast cancer?  Rich and powerful Planned Parenthood earmarks those funds for, yes, the provision of contraception and related services to all manner of women, including, of course, destitute law students, who, it seems, are spending an inordinant amount of time on extracurricular activities.

So why the retro, embarrassingly manufactured controversy?  I’ll tell you why.  How else can the right (as well as those pesky religious-freedom fanatics — Catholics and Baptists among them) be painted as modern-day, woman-hating slave traders?  Shame on the republicans for taking the bait so artificially dangled by the left.  And shame on anyone who believes the sob stories.  Next time you hear one, just send the crybaby over to Planned Parenthood for a ration of free supplies and call it a day.

    Oh, I see. Acoting so holier than thou, a bunch of sponsors decide not to sponsor Rush anymore because he used the “s” word when he talked about that law student plant who said she was spending more money on contraception than on law school, but they continue sponsoring certain people on the leftwing networks who use the same words to describe rightwing women. How nice.
