Some politicians are more concerned with your naughty bits than, oh, children from the wealthiest nation in the world who go to bed hungry and American soldiers being killed in Afghanistan. Take Representative Steve King (R-Iowa), for instance. Rep. King is one of the busybody pols trying to de-fund Planned Parenthood because it provides abortions. And they’ve been successful, which is scary: just two weeks ago the House of Representatives actually voted to do it! Personally I think it’s B.S. enough that these jerks are more concerned with your and my sex life than they are with creating jobs, funding schools and bringing soldiers home from war. But the reasons get totally laughable.Take this video fo Rep. Steve King which was posted on a blog by liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America, in which Rep. King goes off about how Planned Parenthood is “invested in promiscuity.”
Promiscuity?! That’s what you think sexual health care is about?! Planned Parenthood provides pelvic exams. It provides HPV testing. It provides breast exams. It prescribes birth control, which, yes, stops you from getting knocked up, but also regulates crazy periods and helps your skin. Why, even virgins can go to Planned Parenthood!
It would be funny if it wasn’t sad. [PoliticalCorrection.org]
