Planning Ahead

Here’s an example of people who really don’t think beyond the tip of their blue noses.

“Planned Parenthood has stopped providing birth control pills and other contraception in New Hampshire after the state’s executive council rejected up to $1.8 million in funding for the group” because it also provides privately-funded abortions. After losing its contract — which paid for education, distributing contraception, and the testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections — the centers have “turned away 20 to 30 patients a day who have arrived to refill their birth control prescriptions.”

Which means that there will be a rise in the number of unplanned pregnancies in New Hampshire. Which also means that there will be a rise in the number of abortions, regardless of whether or not they are done at Planned Parenthood.

But how can you argue against this kind of logic?

“I am opposed to abortion,” said Raymond Wieczorek, a council member who voted against the contract. “I am opposed to providing condoms to someone. If you want to have a party, have a party, but don’t ask me to pay for it.”

Because we all know that women are totally incapable of controlling their own lives and only live to serve as the vessels for the sacred seed of the menfolk. Sheesh.
