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, ...

True; but I think you're choosing to ignore one important fact. Which is, there are some women who simply don't EVER want children, and never wanted to GET pregnant in the first place. For women who enjoy being childFREE (no kids by CHOICE, rather than by circumstance), I seriously doubt that any amount of "help/counseling" is going to change their minds. Ask any childfree woman, if you don't want to take my word for it.

That applies to women who are DONE with the whole procreation thing, myself included, and definitely DON'T want any more children. I'm just grateful for the reliable contraception that has kept me pregnancy-FREE the last 15+ years. For me, PREGNANCY SUCKS, and I so love NOT being pregnant. No amount of help or counseling would ever change MY mind either. Thankfully, the odds of my ever getting pregnant again are slim to none, and "slim" is almost gone.

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.

You pay taxes so that the government can use the money to benefit society, NOT for your own personal use.

Many people who are currently availing themselves of assistance have also worked and paid into the system until recently. People forget that.

Also, as for Medicaid, I have a friend who has worked all of her adult life, but because she works for a non-profit organization that doesn't offer health insurance, and her ex husband is a dead beat that doesn't work, she had to have Medicaid for her kids. They're adults now, but they were on Medicaid for years. Anyone with kids knows how much it would be for medical expenses if they all had to be paid out of pocket.

There are a lot of people in situations just like that. Yes, there are those who take advantage, and the system is far from perfect. It's so easy for people who have never had to struggle to sit in judgment of others, but they are not "carrying" everyone the way they want to pretend they are. They act like they know NO ONE who's been laid off, or who has a family but no insurance despite the fact that they work. It's ridiculous.

And they also ASSume that anyone who disagrees with them on the subject must be on Welfare. They have small, selfish minds.

Yeah, "Imom," you keep telling yourself that, but you aren't fooling me. If you believe anything that fat misogynistic idiot Rush Limbaugh says about women and Planned Parenthood, then you obviously DON'T think for yourself.

I am not choosing to ignore anything considering the fact that I am pro choice. But as usual people like you jump to all kinds of conclusions if any one deviates in any way from the program you follow. Talk about brainwashed.

Dont any of you right wing nutcases realise that you are saving money in the long run? If the people who use this service are as bad as you like tm say then surely in the long run you will save money on the amount these unborn children will cost when they commit crime?
I dont think this is the best argument but thought maybe you Rush Limbaugh groupies would understand better if i talk on the same level as you.

They just like to bitch about everything like their idle Rush Limpballs who is a hypocrite beyond compare!

All Limpballs is about is "making money", he could not care less about anyone but himself which he proves by doing nothing admirable his entire sorry life.

The man uses women like loose change proven by his numerous marriages and his constant belittling of women.

Is that all you have to do is bitch about people who disagree with you? You call yourself a designer-design something that is not likely to kill innocence.

Yup, liberals aren't happy unless they're complaining about something. Libs are an angry, bitter group of losers. God have pity on their poor souls.

CONservatives are not happy unless they are sticking their unwanted busybody noses into others personal business. Quit patrolling the bedrooms of others and perhaps someday you will get lucky.

1. Take your religion

"How Rush's attacks on PP could raise abortion rates."
Where's the problem? I'd think all you rabid stay-out-of-my-vag, pro-abortion people would be happy with abortion rates climbing, despite Rush's attempts to put them down.
Margaret Sanger is smiling down (or up) at you guys.

Rush attempts to do nothing except put money in his pocket by rallying the misogynistic cretins.

Even pro choice people aren't fans of abortion. They just believe it should be safely available when needed and not be called murderers because of it.

One, Sanger was against abortion. She promoted contraceptives through PP.

Two, we are not "pro-abortion". We are pro-choice. We support a woman's right to make her own choice regarding her own uterus and pregnancy, based upon her own circumstances and moral code, and without interference from busybodies who think they know better than she does what she should do. What she chooses to do is none of our business.

That you want to pretend we root for more abortions says more about you than it does about us. It says you're an idiot.
