but it seems odd to me that the federal government is paying for this.
Just read your blog post. Here's a link for you http://plannedparenthood.org/files/AR08_vFina... .(You may need to cut and paste.) Page 8 blows you right out of the water, when you mention how abortion is PPFA's primary business. You are entitled to your opinions about the abortion issue, however the data will show that your statement is completely false.

Planned Parenthood stands for prevention and protection, and empowers women through making them aware of ALL their options. And, you know what? I thank God (oh yes!) that women have been given the right to choose what's best for themselves.

It's a shame they wont be offering abortion services in this new office. Maybe if they did the teen pregnancy rate would be lower. If the girls are given the truth and not the bs then maybe they will not become teen moms and actually finish grade school and HS.But then again, if we stopped making it so easy for trash to breed more trash. that might help as well.

That sounds great and all. Education will work, but as you know most of the young girls are encouraged to have role models and most of them are young sluts, prancing around on TV in their underware singing about love and sex... WoW, just what I want my daughters to watch... Actually they never did and never will.

The girls need to have self respect for their bodies and not through themselves at every Tom and Hairy Dick they see. The white-trash breed with no consequences and we pay for it...

Sure they might not be performing abortions but what about referrals?
Anywho, in this country we live in one of the most diseased societies in the world. How about opening a nutritional clinic instead or educating these kids in school about proper eating and nutrition? Ever read the local lunch menus for these kids, a diet high in saturated fats and chemicals leads to them being physiologically and emotionally over stimulated adolescents. Not to mention that all of the hormones in their diet cause them to mature faster than agrarian societies. It is a well known fact that people living on a predominately plant based diet do not suffer from the maladies of American society. Having a Planned Parenthood is like universal healthcare, no healthcare at all, just disease management and propagation. So what is the motivation, huge influence from the healthcare and welfare industrial complex. No body ever got rich sealing produce, well at least not filthy rich.

As I have mentioned, I am anti abortion when it comes to my life. I will always suggest for anyone I know not to terminate a pregnancy. But I am also Pro-choice for others as it isn't my personal life, ect.. What I am trying to say is I feel that I do not have a say or a vote on the choice of any persons body ect..

This being said; this clinic is extremely controversial. It may scare other profitable businesses away. I am just being realistic. You will not ever see me out there picketing but others make it a life long journey and there are crazy religous fanatics. You may see signs that state "baby killer" ect... This is not my stance; it is reality of society though, there are those who hold signs that state worse.

Why can't this clinic go to John Fitz? Why Main st? We need real businesses down town! The college could have their newspaper or radio station downtown. The city should put the accessors office downtown. The building department could have a store front downtown.

What about a Bakery. Doctors offices. Bring back a chiropracters office. We need professional people downtown. Then in turn they can buy their lunch,coffee and cigerettes from the local main street stores.

Bravo! Nice post. And ditto that for the rest of the losers that believe everything they hear rather than doing their own research and educating themselves. I would like to see a list of the 40 or so "social agencies" in Fitchburg. I love how people make this claim, then the lemmings just fall in place and sing the same song....so provide that list of the "social agencies" in Fitchburg....I'll wait.
That was a great post that should put her in her place. People, stop being ignorant about stuff. And like another poster said, why does anyone have a right to tell anyone what they can or can't do with their body?

See this is what people we all deal with!! "Trash to breed more trash." Your mother taught you well huh, Buddy? When you go to the bathroom do you give a curtousy flush? Because I figure your poop stinks also,right? Or are you a chosen "righteous person"? Who are you to judge anyone?

Remember the name is Planned Parenthood, they help you plan a family and educate you how to be a parent. That would eliminate all the punks running the streets, doing drugs,**** children if their parents would have just planned and planned correctly this sh*t wouldn't happen. Unfortunately we have people who call themselves parents, but in reality, they're not parents only breeders with no purpose...no plan
No wonder these small towns west of Boston are just white-trash, sports fanatics, booze hound wife beaters...playground.
Marlborough Mom; you should be ashamed of your mouth! Who gives you the right to judge? You feed everyone?huh? You must make a lot of money!My family did not have food stamps; my mother and father raised three boys; we went to catholic grammer and high schools. My Father now lives on a 1300 a month pension, so he wasn't making big money. He taught us morals,I guess your parents missed giving you the lesson!

Do you read the bible? Are you a conservative "christian" self righteous republican? One of loves to talk about everyone elses misfortunes? Does that make you fell better about your own miserable life ?

You will answer to God on why you feel that you are the judge of others! If you are not christian then maybe Karma will bite you in your tush; you know the one that poops the smelly stuff; your poop does stink like everyone elses right???

OK Real World, I'm going to have to "phone a friend" on this one, but I do believe that the city of Fitchburg can lay claim at least 40 social service agencies. Now I know some of my reader friends out there in town have a list they can put their hands on and might be willing to cut-and-paste it on this blog. If not, can we start with a small list and have other readers keep adding to it? I'll start with a few that come to my mind.
1) LUK Crisis Center
2) Montachusett Opportunity Council
3) Habit Management Institute
4) Pro Health
5) Our Fathers House
6) WIC Services
7)

Isn't Marlborough the town where the banker killed his wife and stuck her heart and liver on sticks in the yard? What about the guy who recently killed the woman from craigslist. He was from a well to do family! Geez all the insane murders are done by educated rich whites!

I am a white male by the way! I treat everyone the same!Did you make any money in the stock market? Maybe one of these poor moms worked their tail off making $7.00 an hour while you vacumed in the companies profits! How do you make your money??? Is any of it tied to grocery stores where these poor moms spend their food stamp money??

It is called government spending!!! In someway you benefit from it!!! Shame on you!!!! Get a clue!!!!!!!!!! LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!!!!! Miss Perfect!!

A lot of these republican comments is why your party fails!!! I don't have much money but I will put that dollar in the jar to help kids with Cancer. Help your fellow human being; open the door for ladies. Help your elderly neighbor shovel their walk!

May the democrats and Independants continue to be righteous people! Continue to give to the poor even if you are struggling; let these republicans continue to collect their divedends and spew their garbage out here. These people feel that they "feed everyone".

Just remember dear republicans, the dems and independants put scott brown in not the republicans. The dem adds got nasty and people felt it wasn't fair. Coakley din't lose, brown won! Martha Coakley isn't a bad person! These republicans are sour winners!!

Maybe this economy will drive you out of your beutiful home ass it has to so many of your neighbors! A lot were republicans who lost $100,000 jobs! You could be next! Wouldn't that be Karma!!!

Awesome! Now Fitchburg can finally make the map.

When the Right to Life fringe element comes in and plants a few bombs, or murders workers there, it'll show how great a place Ficthburg is!

"Right to Life" unless, or course we disagree with your stand on a particular issue; then reserve the Right to end yours!

LUK helps trouble kids and employs others who spend their pay checks through mortgages,food,clothing,restau rants and tuitions.
Montachusett Opportunity Council; HMMM do they help with support of the elderly?
Habit Management? Is this the clinic where those who got addicted to heroin go? Don't they have a good sized work force? Now these addicts are showing up as they begin to work full time jobs, become better parents and citizens! Less crime,more jobs and less crime in the city! Maybe we could use another clinic? Get a clue!!! I suppose "you pay for all these men and women at this clinic"?
Our Fathers house? Do you know when these guys get jobs they pay for room and board! You really have a problem with people making a warm home for the homeless whom are out in the cold? Do you know there are a lot of food donations that are used by these shelters? Shame on you!!! Do you know anyone who lost their job in this economy? Walk under the roadway bridges in Boston; their are families under the bridges you drive through!! You don't notice them unless you walked under the bridge! I did the census in Boston in 1990 as we counted the Homeless. This would of been a good job for you! Do you feel that you were born to entitlement?? I bet you are a Republican bible hipocrite!

Then you want to harp on the WIC program? Are you serious? Do you know anyone who works at a supermarket or has a kid working at one? These employees spend their entire checks into the economy; you probably benefit from dividends of companies that they spent their check!!

You may be book smart but you are so far from reality! Get your head out of your pooper! You must be feeling that Scott Brown is the Messiah and the Republicans are going to be able to squirm out of their worm holes and come to power again! This will not happen as long as Bush doesn't refer with Diabold again!!!!

You must remember Diabold? This is the company that had to pay millions as they were sued for their voting machines! You know the one where the COE wrote a letter to George Bush telling him "we will take florida"?

We need to express to these girls that they count. Too many fathers in Fitchburg turn their backs on these kids and the mothers. Put shame on these guys!

Hopefully, this place really pushes Father programs also! Times are getting tougher! These kids cheat themselves out of life!

Someone needs to bring these Republican post into the schools and tell them: make these self righteous people eat their words! Support each other, become friends with other girls and talk to each other about protection! Give yourself a better chance at life,stay in school so you can one day take this "republicans" job away from them! Educate yourselves to rise above these stuck up people!

Always respect each other!

These poor moms working their tail off for $7.00 an hour put themselves in this situation. I didn't! If they work for this low wage, then they deserve it, the have taken it down the throat and they settled. Not my problem. Stop with your anger, God wouldn't like you that way.

I have a clue, and many more. That's why I'm not selling hamburgers and hotdogs at a fast food joint or handing out smiley faces at Walmart. I'll let that for the people who have not planned their future and blame others for the situation.
