Lenny McAllister continues to call Republicans out on their “contradictory slams.” All this energy that goes into defunding Planned Parenthood and passing dead-on-arrival legislation might be better spent trying to solve some of the major problems persistent in the country.
The debate over abortion funding and Planned Parenthood reminds me of all the members of Congress I talk to who wear their religion on their sleeve when talking about abortion then suddenly forget about God when it comes to the poor. All this fervor and fire is great on abortion. Everybody’s up in someone’s business when they’re pregnant — they “care” about Black babies then — but it all stops at birth? Your party is “concerned” on the number of black babies aborted? How about an exploration on what happens to people after their birth in a nation with 16 million children in poverty? How about getting up in someone’s personal business then? How about an annual march on that issue?
You fight to cut funding for Planned Parenthood for poor women during a time of record poverty: 50 million people. That’s the Republican answer? :::::::::::::::::::::::http://politic365.com/2012/02/03/komen-decision-race-class-abortion-and-republicans/
