“I’ll Be Standing For Planned Parenthood If I’m The Last Person Standing” [VIDEO]

“I’ll Be Standing For Planned Parenthood If I’m The Last Person Standing” [VIDEO]

It’s been over a year now since the movement to defund Planned Parenthood officially got underway.  Starting with Indiana Rep. Mike Pence in January of 2011, and now going all the way to federal judges allowing states to cut off funding even at the expense of poor and uninsured women, it has been a deliberate and methodical attack on a group that provides many women in the country the ability to control their own reproductive future.

And soon, we will get our chance to vote.  Watch “Women’s Health and the 2012 Election,” narrated by Cynthia Nixon, to remind yourself of what is truly at stake this November.

Earnest R. Your comment is so very true.

@ Johnny M. “not to betray her promise to protect the women of Afghanistan” I am afraid that Hillary has no way to protect the women of Afghanistan , and President Obama would have no justification to further extend US military activity there. Ten years of .futility that has only succeeded in driving the US further into bankruptcy and destroying the lives of now physically and emotionally damaged young soldiers. The women of Afghanistan are most unfortunate to be born into that culture, and are at the mercy of the religious insanity there. What help could be provided by Hillary or anyone else ?.

I will fight to get rid of all representatives, senators, and state equals who try to attack Planned Parenthood.

We, women are one of the largest voting blocks ever. We can use that strength to send a really plain and strong message that we don't appreciate the stupidity of the GOP and their war on women. They want a war, ahah, they've got one. Good luck GOP getting anything done without us and for those women who will stick with the GOP, maybe you are just a bit confused with your gender, but lack of intelligence should not stand in our way. Kick these idiots to the curve, we don't need em anymore!

But no one will be the last person standing because I'll be right there with them.

All women need to stand together......along with a few fantastic men like Al Franken and President Obama....because this is NOT about abortion, this is about our rights that we have fought so hard to win, about our right to live as free entities. Don't be fooled by the GOP...they do not care about women unless they can somehow make a profit on us. I will not return to the dark ages, where women were treated with disrespect, like property, without rights to determine their own destiny. I vote....Obama 2012!!!
