I'm confident in saying that Planned Parenthood has done more to help Americans and our nation than anyone on this board. I'll go even further and say Planned Parenthood has achieved more to prevent unwanted pregnancies and abortions than those Churches whose puritanical approach of "just say no" has been proven to be totally unrealistic. Providing sexual education beyond abstinence and making contraceptives available is what Planned Parenthood does. A more effective approach than keeping youth sexually ignorant and without means to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs, Bristol Palin, Tea Partying Christian, has literally made a career of telling others to abstain from sex prior to marriage and now she has a second child on the way while she is out of wedlock. While I congratulate her on not getting an abortion, she is fortunate to have been paid handsomely for her hypocritical message of do as I say not as I do, allowing her to afford her bastard offspring. Others are not so fortunate and those who would condemn these women for opting for an abortion are precisely the ones who want to take away the means of preventing unwanted pregnancies in the first place.
This CEO cut his own wages significantly, so I'm not entirely surprised he needs to rent out his large home. He is still in business, but some former employees are upset with how he instituted raises, like that has never happened before in the history of business.. Brother apparently owns 30% of the company and wasn't happy with the decision. He is now suing, draining funds from the business for legal fees. Seems like this should have been worked out between the two brothers prior to instituting the new wage scale. They've lost some old clients because of the policy and gained some new ones. Time will tell if it all works out, but I have a feeling he will be successful in the long run.
No, that is not the case at all. However, Christians believe that if you fail to accept Christ as your savior you'll be damned to hell. That means Yahweh has supposedly sent tens of billions of otherwise good human beings to suffer in hell for all eternity. Eternity in hell is serious punishment. It is not 6 thousand years or even 14 billion years, it is eternity. How fair is that for someone raised in a Hindu, Buddhist or even Jewish culture that doesn't accept Christian folklore? Condemning people's souls to eternity in hell is an act of a vindictive, narcissistic, sociopath and reflects terribly on those who would condone/worship such behavior. And again, God created our means of reproduction. Billions of fertilized eggs and fetuses have failed to result in healthy new born babies and God has yet to address the issue. Where is the Christian outrage about that?
Planned Parenthood is an organization that has been helping Americans for over 100 years. It provides invaluable assistance to people that otherwise would have had no where to turn for help in preventing unwanted pregnancies. Their efforts to provide contraceptives and sexual education helps to reduce the spread of STDs and the need for abortions. 14 percent of PP revenue comes from abortions plain and simple. If you ignore government funding that rises to just over 20%. Ignore other private funding and you will finally arrive at the figure you originally quoted. Here is another way to look at the issue: Ignore those who irrationally believe their every move is being monitored by an invisible being and you're left with virtually no opposition to Planned Parenthood.
Seriously, the source of this attack is largely coming from the evangelical right in this country. The man in the sky that they worship is responsible for the overwhelming majority of aborted human fetuses. He doesn't seem to give a damn about it or he would have done something to correct his poor design of our reproductive organs by now. He hasn't. If God doesn't care why should you?
Only half kidding but... Does anyone know if Dave Gettleman would be willing to moonlight as a draft guru for the Hornets? Or maybe just provide a class to Hornets management on the proper approach to talent evaluation and drafting?
Only 3% of their patient care actually goes to abortion services. And, according to federal law, Planned Parenthood cannot actually use government funds on abortion procedures. So, if Planned Parenthood gets defunded, it’ll hurt poor people who are in need of cancer screenings, contraception, and STD testing. So, nice try on that abortion thing, Republicans. As usual, your claims don’t hold. http://front.moveon.org/do-you-know-what-planned-parenthood-actually-does/#.VbxQqTZRHIV
