Won't You Reconsider?

A few days ago, I received an email asking me to reconsider my stance on Planned Parenthood. I'm not sure her party affiliation and I don't know how anyone would ever think I'd  reconsider my stance. Here was my reply: 

I've only run into 3 Republican supports of PP in my over 7500 doors I've knocked on. Yesterday, I met one man who said God is in charge of our souls and we can do whatever we want with our body, thus what PP is doing is okay. I later met a man who was angry to see me at his door. He feels like PP is getting a bad rap because of the videos. 

I meet all types of people going door to door. Most of the folks I meet stand where I do and are as fed up as I am with being ignored in DC. Most are outraged over continued funding of PP. 

Today, I was at it again. Everyone I spoke to was appalled by what PP has been doing and wants federal funding halted.

More and more people are realizing that the fake demonization of Planned Parenthood is just hurting women's access to medical care. More and more of us are standing up to the religious right to tell you that you can't tell us what we can do to our bodies. And before you say that you are trying to protect an unborn fetus, remember, that fetus is not yours. You want the government to stay out of your life, how about you stay out of other people's bodies and choices.

The baby is a separate human being with a separate body from its mother. N one is telling a woman what she can do and can't do with her own body- we are trying to tell her she can't murder a human being that is separate from her body and who has the God-given right to life, just as its mother does.

There are 13,000 other women's health organizations that actually provide women's healthcare in the USA. America doesn't need PP.
