How Rush Limbaugh's Cynical Attacks on Planned Parenthood Could Raise Abortion Rates

Apr 30, 2013 Full story: Daily Kos 61

Right wing talk radio host Rush Limbaugh has ramped up his cynical smear campaign on Planned Parenthood--which he refers to as an "abortion factory." I say cynical because the campaign makes it painfully clear that--like much of what he discusses on his sad show--Limbaugh really has doesn't care or understand what Planned Parenthood is all about, ...

I know how you feel. I feel the same way paying the same healthcare premiums for couples that have more than two kids. Why should I have to pay for their brats and their deliveries? They are just losers hoping everyone will support their sex lives when they decide to produce like rabbits. Sick whiny fckers with their hands out. Also, why should they get tax deductions for the product of their sexual shenanigans?

No I do not work in the healthcare industry and I know many who have had abortions with ZERO regret. Of course they are not religious brainwashed simpletons. Do you work in the healthcare industry or social work? You must since you question my stance.

No I am not a lawyer nor do I need to be one in order to understand separation of church and state along with Establishment Clause. Religion has its hand out to the taxpayer while owning shitloads of property they do not pay taxes on! Talk about scamming and bellying up to the troth!

Now a question for you. Do you lay awake at night dreaming to be the next bimbo bride of Mr. Shoots Blanks ....quivering thighs and all hoping he will roll his fat azz over on you??

I thought so.

I feel pity for anyone stupid enough to agree with a word that man says. He's so far over the top and rampantly obvious with his hatred of women, it actually surprises me that any sane person-regardless of political or religious affiliation-would applaud that disgusting blob's diatribe.

Would they still think he was amusing if he was talking about their daughters, wives or mothers the way he talks about other women?

BRAVO!!

What they don't know is.....he IS talking about all women including "their" wives, daughters and mothers. They are just to damn stupid to recognize it or they agree!

Refresh my memory....how many times has Mr. Shoots Blanks been married? I lost count.
I may be mistaken, but I heard his current wife is wife #3...or maybe #4. Why ANY woman would want to marry that fat tub is beyond me.

Yeah, we know the standard right-wing shaming tactic, goofy. Limbaugh and his mindless followers have no other rational arguments to make.

The FACT remains that Planned Parenthood makes reliable contraception that PREVENTS unwanted pregnancy available to low-income and poor women at very little cost. Why anyone would have "issues" with preventing unwanted pregnancy (which is also preventing abortion) is beyond me.

I think that a LOT of women who profess to have regrets about having an abortion are guilt tripped by family/acquaintances about it.

However, there are also many women who have had an abortion who do NOT regret it for a New York minute. But don't take MY word for it. Check out the stories at one or both links below.

So you'd rather her end up pregnant at a young age with no means to support herself and kid(s) so instead has to turn to government support which would cost us 100s of times more? Did you really think your response through? Let me guess, you don't rely on the government for anything correct? You don't use roads, don't rely on the military to protect your rights to babble ignorant screeds, don't rely on the police to enforce laws, don't rely on firefighters to protect your home, don't rely on (subsidized) fossil fuels to power your (subsidized) car which you bought using loans from a (subsidized) bank and don't rely on (subsidized) farmers to provide you with sustenance? Wow, you must be your own country!
What I do not rely on is other taxpayers to carry my burdens nor pay for my indiscretions or mistakes. I pay taxes to pay for the road that I drive on, the military to protect me and the police to enforce the laws. I do not pay taxes so that the losers in this country can have a safety net to save them from themselves and their poor decisions.

Wow! You appear to be just another loser looking for justification for "your" failure to manage "your" own life without assistance from those you don't even know.

Rush Limbaugh is a MORON, as far as I'M concerned. What's amazing to me is that the moron is still on the air, but luckily I don't have to listen to his right-wing b.s.
I went to Planned Parenthood quite often when I was 18+ and had just moved to a big city. I knew that if I chose to have sex at some point, I DIDN'T want to get pregnant, so I needed reliable contraception to PREVENT that unwanted outcome. They charged very LITTLE money for that contraception, and I was very grateful to get it. I would have had to pay MORE anywhere else.
The Planned Parenthood facility I went to was terrific. The medical staff were very knowledgable and helpful, they answered all my questions on preventing unwanted pregnancy and STD's, and finally set me up with the contraception that I felt would work best for me.
Thanks to Planned Parenthood and its wonderful staff, I never got pregnant before the time when I WANTED to become a mother, which wasn't until my 30's. I never got a sexually transmitted disease either. I went OFF birth control when I decided I was ready for the responsibility.
People who have "issues" with Planned Parenthood have a simple solution; don't use its services. They're just pissed because they can't take PP's services away from ALL women. Tough luck for them.
You are talking rubbish, and you know it. The bottom line is that Rush Limbaugh is against abortion. That means, he's against the murder of unborn children. Planned Parenthood makes money out of killing the unborn.(They make $millions) Rush has every right to come down on PP. Keep up the good work, Rush Limbaugh.

Give me a rational, intellectual reason why I should subsidize losers who are unable to care for themselves and their actions. All the idiots on the left have are their pitiful emotional reasons why everyone should care for those who are unable to care for themselves and/or take responsibility for their decisions.

Also not surprising that "you" advocate this since from your previous posts, personal responsibility is not in your vocabulary. Sad though is that you will most likely have offspring which will be just as dependent and lacking in responsibility as you.

Oh PLEASE. I have every right to state my views and opinions as the moron Rush Limbaugh and his mindless idiotic followers do.

Limgaugh is nothing more than a misogynist LOSER, but you're free to follow this idiot all you want. Judging from your post, you obviously "think" just like him. Thankfully, I don't.

I know that there are many women who have no regrets and there are some that do. The reasons that women have abortions are complex as is the human mind. There are NO easy one size fits all solutions to complex situations. To suggest that there are easy solutions does a disservice to women in tough situations who may need extra help/counseling for various reasons.

Keep saying that until life delivers you a blow that you can't handle (like being laid off). Public assistance is there for everybody, it's sort of like insurance in case you run into bad times. Most people won't but it's nice to know it's there in case you do.
I pay taxes to pay for the road that I drive on, the military to protect me and the police to enforce the laws. I do not pay taxes so that the losers in this country can have a safety net to save them from themselves and their poor decisions.
You pay taxes so that the government can use the money to benefit society, NOT for your own personal use.
Wow! You appear to be just another loser looking for justification for "your" failure to manage "your" own life without assistance from those you don't even know.
I'm a lead IT developer for a place with over 600 users. I make enough so that my wife doesn't have to work and can get our three kids to where they need to be at all times.

Planned Parenthood is non-profit and has done more to benefit society than Limbaugh could even dream.

He has no problem with killing civilians (people who are actually born and also innocent) in war and even advocates that as a strategy: http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig11/graham-d1.1...

Rush is a POS that panders to a certain hypocritical demographic who claims to be pro-life but only for those that aren't even considered alive.

Yup, just like Margaret Sanger planned. Good of you to go along with her.
