    Heretic doesn't understand that most of us don't need radio hosts to formulate our opinions. I don't listen to any of those talking heads. Still can't figure out what the heretic has against old white guys. Is he/she a racist or just dislikes old people? Or both? Maybe he/she feels that only ladies are worthy to make decisions for ladies and men for men. So is he/she proposing a segregated Congress? So would that go for races too? Are you sure you're not some old southern democrat? Sounds like a lot of complaining without much in the form of practical solutions.

    Here's the reality. No group has a monopoly on common sense or idiocy. Plenty to go around on the left and right. No one can say that one side of the political spectrum stands more for women's rights than the other because it depends which women's rights you are referring to. Same for minority rights. Sure, an anything goes mentality will please a lot of people. But it harms others. The beauty of our country is if you want change, you vote it in. And life goes on.

    I live on the planet where the GOP (Party of old white men, mostly) have declared war on Women's Health....again.
    The rest of your spin may work for hannity fans, but it's just silly spin, to try and make excuses for the GOP.

    Your really trying to compare, taking away a women's decisions on her health and body, to a political curriculum argument? Your radio is doing you no service in making good analogies.

    What a wonderful example of Irony, supporting abortion by PP by saying they prevent abortions.

    ---------------------

    You're forgetting, or deliberately ignoring the fact that PP prevents a huge number of abortions by preventing the case of abortion -- unwanted pregnancy. Their education, family planning and contraception work keeps those pregnancies from starting and, as a result, prevents their termination. In truth, shutting down PP will cause an increase in the number of abortions because the cause of abortion -- unwanted pregnancies -- will increase due to the loss of family planning resources.

    @Utahutesthroughandthrough
    Talk about manipulating stats to say what you want? You seem to want to ignore the stats related to prevention care given to women to prevent pregnancy in the first place and care given to women to ensure healthy pregenecies (the two largest parts of their actual services) and instead focus only on abortion versus afoption as if those are the only two options.

    Heretic...so you don't like old white men. Would old black men make it any better? How about old white or black women? Hispanic? Why does the race matter? Do women have some sort of monopoly on decision making? Minorities? Last I checked, we've got a whole lot of women and minorities in Congress now. We've got a president that's not an old white guy. But somehow everything is the fault of the white guys. This is unbelievable.

    You want subservient women? Try being a teacher in California and having an opinion that differs from the ultra-liberal powers that be. Oh boy, you better keep it to yourself and keep your mouth shut or they will make you pay dearly. I know this for a fact. Neither side of the political aisle has a monopoly on terrible people who have power.

    All I know is the women I know, Mormon and not, are strong and know how to stand up for themselves. Not sure what planet you live on.

    So when one actually looks into the numbers and really tries to actually use the numbers that a company puts out. You can see through their statistics that get to the actual data that they publish. Or do you not know math enough to do the calculations?

    Barbara Boxer famously said that it isn't a baby until you strap it into the carseat. Regardless how you feel about a woman's right to abort her fetus, it takes a pretty callous person to feel ok about terminating a life up until and even shortly after birth.

    @Utahutes So what you are saying is if you ignore the facts, you can say the facts are whatever you say the facts are.

    Say BO, Right like the GOP doesn't force Abortion issues every election cycle, what a silly comment.

    More non-story, that only get the low information crowd excited. You can't separate women's health from the abortion issue, and old MEN republicans won't discuss women parts cause it doesn't effect them, and it's kind of embarrassing?

    That is the root of this issue, Old white men deciding health issue for subservient women, well they used to be until all that equality nonsense, right?

    The GOP still believe that women can't make important decisions for themselves and from the comments women as chattel was there "Ideal."

    I really liked Senator Reid's comment about the defunding effort : "Republicans have lost their moral compass".
    It never ceases to amaze me that this soulless ghoul was re-elected by our neighbors in Nevada.

    Irony Guy

    If you read the actual report that Planned Parenthood puts out about their services. They say that 3 percent which depending on how you look at the numbers is correct. (Remember you can get stats to say anything you want.) But when you actually start looking at their numbers you say that almost 94 percent of the time. They give abortions to women. In fact when you start doing calculations for every adoption referral they get, they perform 149 abortions. So it does seem that Planned Parenthood does more in the aborting business then in the saving lives business.

    Planned Parenthood has prevented far more abortions than the angry right wing has done.

    Perfect!
    As we go into the next election cycle the democrat party will OWN the War on Babies.
    Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.
    Defunded or not, the damage is done.
