Planned Parenthood & My Dwindling Faith In Humanity

image

As a staunch conservative, I have exceptionally low expectations for liberals. Is every liberal a borderline communist lacking any integrity, common sense, or basic understanding of economics? Of course/probably not. But I really didn’t expect the reaction to the recently released videos to be an issue of partisanship. I had a faith in my fellow man to understand and condemn such unabashed evil. I knew to anticipate at least a few far left nut jobs trying to over intellectualize and consequently justify Planned Parenthood’s behavior, but I thought that by a long shot, people of all political persuasions would be able to unilaterally agree that there was something unforgivably cruel about what was happening in those videos.

I don’t expect everyone to agree with me on abortion. I don’t expect everyone to believe what I believe, or even understand what I believe. But I did expect people with any vague trace of compassion to feel repulsed by the nonchalant, soulless exchanges that transpired in those videos. I expected them to watch Planned Parenthood officials sell off body parts like real estate without batting an eye, watch the officials and employees unknowingly reveal the organization’s deceptive practices, watch doctors apathetically pick through aborted fetuses for what they could make money off of, put politics aside, and be honest with themselves about what was happening in front of their eyes.

But when it came down to it, I suppose it didn’t matter if we, the people could come to an agreement. Nor do our laws, our institutions, or the future of this country. All that matters are the letters in parentheses at the ends of names. Several of the senators that agreed to continue funneling taxpayer money into a for profit company under the masquerade of women’s rights hadn’t even watched the videos before they voted. My very own senator, the Dishonorable Elizabeth Warren, not only voted to continue funding Planned Parenthood but gave the most predictably dishonest speech I’ve ever heard. Because apparently, selling fetal body parts was all the rage at two random points in American history.

This almost became a pro-life rant, but I’m stopping myself. I’ll keep it short and to the point, and try to infuse as few as my personal beliefs into my argument as possible. Your misguided definition of women’s rights does not depend on Planned Parenthood. There are plenty of healthcare providers that specialize in women’s health besides Planned Parenthood. The prices discussed in the videos were not for “shipping fees” or whatever pathetic excuses given by Planned Parenthood’s spokespeople. Planned Parenthood is for-profit, and if you want to donate to them, it’s a free country, but they don’t deserve a penny more of the American tax payers’ money.

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs
  • Tbt to the time I searched every floor of union station for a Cinnabon then ended up paying $9 for the most disgusting steak and cheese I’ve ever encountered
  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
