Arizona De-Funds Planned Parenthood

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law HB 2800, a bill that strips funding from women’s health care provider Planned Parenthood.

Despite the fact that the use of public funds for abortions is already restricted, this latest funding ban prohibits money from going to any health care providers that provide abortions at all, thereby insuring money doesn’t “indirectly” go toward supporting abortion services.

The funding cuts will impact approximately 20,000 women and will endanger other health services like preventative cancer screens and family planning services. Planned Parenthood is considering challenging the law after recently winning a temporary reprieve from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in an identical case in Texas.

JAN BREWER - ARIZONA GOVERNOR !
Perhaps now that she has made planned parent defunct in Arizona. She can use the money
not spent to help thousands of women in Arizona. and get plastic surgery,(extremely needed).
Hasn't anyone thought what the GOP is doing to women's rights, since they cannot take women's rights away federally, there mandate is to keeping electing state governors and
legislatures that can do it locally, until such time as they can get control of Congress,
Senate and the Presidency. The GOP and their cohorts ie: Mc Connell, Ryan, Boehner and
others can give the country to their wealthy and corporate friends to do as they see fit. If and
when this takes place your will surely have "ANARCHY" and you will not be watching it on
television, such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. It will be in 'HOMETOWN U. S. A.".

There is a Polish proverb which says that a fool can be recognized by his laughter. Here we have an example.
