I know it is considered uncouth to discuss politically driven subjects. But I have always been a rebel anyway. And there is a subject that makes me want to grind my teeth and shake my fist every time I read an article discussing this. And instead of writing a negative angry letter about why I think it is completely unfair that this subject is even up for discussion. I instead am going to educate you all on the facts of what is actually going on. And discuss why it would be devastating to Women all over our country if any bill moved forward gets approved to shut down this organization. And that organization is Planned Parenthood.
Let me start by giving you some numbers. FACTUAl numbers showing what Planned Parenthood does to aid in Women’s health.
Fact- Planned Parenthood provides over 1 Million pap test’s a year
Fact- Planned Parenthood provides around 830,000 breast exams a year
Fact- Planned Parenthood provides an estimated 3 MILLION women a year with birth control, cervical cancer screening, STD tests, pregnancy tests, STI testing and screening, and many other services
Fact- Approximately 20% of Women ages 18-64 are uninsured
Do you see what I am getting at?
Defunding an organization that is incredibly beneficial to women who do not have access to something you may very well take for granted is heinous. What is even more shocking is the privileged white males that are standing up against it.
We are lions. We need to roar and stand up for this group. If you are arguing against this group because of religious views. Stop what your doing and look at what GOOD this company does. You would be negatively impacting another humans basic right to get health care based off a personal opinion. And that is unfair. I strongly stand against this and I want to continue to empower everyone out there to support what is right.
Look at the facts. Look at the truth. Educate your self and stop listening to the media.
Have an amazing day. I hope I didn’t ruffle too many feathers. Thank you for reading and I will post again soon.
