When are these hilljacks gonna learn that they can't cut federal money for PP? They keep passing these laws that directly violate the terms of receiving the funding to begin with.

Good for my state.

What makes them think they can target one medical facillity and discriminate against it based on one medical procedure that only half of their clinics even perform?

You can bet the anti-choice kooks are going to be howling about this one for a while. Not that it will do them any good, of course.

As Bitner said, good for NC, as it will continue to get Planned Parenthood services, especially the contraception that PREVENTS unwanted pregnancy to begin with.

Exactly. There are nine PP clinics in NC, and only four of them provide abortions. In SC, there are even fewer clinics, and NONE of them provide abortions.

A fact which anti-choice imbeciles will either deny or ignore. They're so bent (in every sense of the word) to get rid of PP that they'll deny health services for low-income or poor women who can't get those services any other way.
