    If you pay federal income taxes, you’re paying for this!

    "They still disproportionally abort minority children "

    Becuase minority women disproportionately have unplanned pregnancies out of wedlock and disproportionately go into PPH offices in part because they're disproportionately poor and can't afford going to some other places, it has nothing to do with any systemtic push on the part of Planned Parenthood.

    "And the hard core left loves this group and want the public to finance it"

    It is already illegal to fund abortions, tax dollars going to planned parenthood go towards their other services.

    Anyway, if you and others who will comment just like you even bothered to read the article you would notice that the people who voted against the bill don't support aborting based on gender. The issue they had with it is that it would require the doctor to ask patients about private personal decisions and would easily lead to lawsuits against the doctor if they somehow missed one who got a gender-selection based abortion but didn't tell the doctor and would lead to yet another backdoor way for conservatives to proceed in shutting down clinics.

    you can run but you cannot hide, so I repeat, don't you think the idea that a woman would chose abortion if the they could determine that the child would be gay is a bit of a stretch even in your never ending attempt to rile up gay rights advocates? A very transparent stretch even for you.

    This is the most morally reprehensible practice I've heard of in OUR country. China, or 3rd world countries - MAYBE, but our country has now unequivocably become morally bankrupt!

    Hopefully, this issue alone will END all public funding to Planned Parenthood!!

    oh good more wild assertions, shall we go back to some of the founders of the republican party or even any company or organization that has existed for more then the past 50 years as well and claim that those organizations still hold those same philosophies as some of their founders? I am pretty sure few would survive that type of scrutiny. Never mind that Abortion accounts for less then 3% of what planned parenthood does and that the vast majority of what they do is about protecting and nourishing the health of those same minority groups you claim they abort at such high levels.

    The only things appalling is the wild claims that those that oppose planned parenthood will make. there is a reason during the current flap that planned parenthood's donations went up and the foundation that cut their funding backed down. OUt here in the real world people see through the lies of the far right.
