I'm Pro-Life And I Don't Want Planned Parenthood Defunded

There is so much more to Planned Parenthood than the one service that I don't like.

I'm Pro-Life And I Don't Want Planned Parenthood Defunded

Hello, my name is Pro-Life Supporter. If you lean to the liberal side, you might have an assortment of really mean names to call me and unkind things you say. That’s okay with me. It’s good to have such a passion for something that you couldn’t care less what people have to say about it. Other I’m pretty progressive in my political views, and I am fairly certain I have more liberal opinions than conservative. My view is that as long as it isn’t causing harm to another human being, then it really is none of my business.

I’m not going to get into the science behind it in this article, although I may post one dedicated to that eventually, but unborn babies are human beings (who just so happen to be alive). There is really no disputing that – take a basic biology course or read a peer-reviewed journal about the topic. People will try to say otherwise, but please, please, please look at the facts. Arguing the opposite shows that one is truly uneducated on the topic and has allowed biased propaganda to cloud their mind.

Obviously, I don’t like the fact that Planned Parenthood is a supporter and performer of abortion. I don’t like that I’ve witnessed situations where they desensitize people to the truth about abortion. I don’t like that they have been accused of selling aborted fetal tissue. I don't like the horror stories. I am saddened by a lot of things surrounding Planned Parenthood and abortion.

But, abortion isn’t all that Planned Parenthood offers to their clients. They offer birth control, healthcare for both women and men, cancer screening, STD testing and treatment, and prenatal care, among so many other services.

So, here’s the situation. Abortion breaks my heart, and I wish that every woman would or could choose life. But do I want to defund Planned Parenthood? No way. What if someone I love got pregnant but couldn’t afford prenatal care because Planned Parenthood didn’t exist? Would that really help her make the decision to choose life? I don’t think so.

If you’re pro-life and have dedicated your time to shouting on the streets about how Planned Parenthood needs to be brought down, please just think about all the valuable services offered, not just the one we don’t like. I know that they and many others aren’t very pleasant towards us - they don’t let us represent ourselves on the mainstage - but think about all your fellow picketers who may someday need their other services.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
