I stand with Planned Parenthood. Always.

Tonight, more than ever in the wake of this terrorist attack.

Years and years ago my girlfriend took me there for help with a STD. They were excellent.

I took my daughter there at age 16 for sex ed and contraceptives, Again, they were excellent.

So many of my friends have benefited from their services.

I am sick over this. Very pissed off, also.

Right wing politicians who gin up this hate have blood on their hands tonight.

5. Thank you.

I am in mourning. So sad.

I hope the day will come when this society realizes that abortion is a medical procedure that helps women. Nothing more, nothing less.

A mass of cells or a fetus should never trump a woman's life. No way. Not ever.

6. There is a lot of blame to go around. It's obvious that the Right Wing hates women's rights

 

but also look to the Conservative in our own party. This is the culture they have fostered for the last 40 years.

It's time for a change from the corruption of big money in our government. Vote for Sen Sanders.

Just one thread about women and our bodies and OUR rights without a plug for Sanders. Just one please.

This is about our life, and possibly an early death for us if we do not get the treatment we need. Please, could we have just one day for us? Is that to much to ask for.

I want to see PP protected and supported and will stand with them. I think the 2016 election is very important for social justice issues and I don't believe the 1% gives a crap and don't understand those that do.

54. The blame for where we are from the last 40 years isn't all on the GOP.

 

Concentrating on them is a distraction from the damage being done by the Conservative Wing of the Party. The 1% not only sponsors the Republicons, they also sponsor the Conservative Wing of the Democratic Party. Some wish it to be easy, Republicons bad, and Democrats good. Life aint that easy. If you want progressive change, support progressives.

52. 2016 election

...is the most important election we've ever had...if Bernie wins the primary. If Hilary wins the primary, it will be more of the same establishment obstruction and stagnation with more of the wealth going to the top. As far as PP is concerned, however, Dems cannot afford to let 3-4 Republican appointed members join the SCOTUS.

Never forget, they help on reproductive rights for men and women.

8. I fail every time something like this happens.

My better angel beseeches me to love thy enemy, turn the other cheek, and willingly submit to the pain unleashed beneath the hand of those who oppress me. But my impulse is to hate, loathe, and strike back in retaliation.

Self-sacrifice lies at the basis of nonviolent civil disobedience. Eventually, the selfless suffering of the satyagrahi impels the oppressor to see the injustice and evil of his ways.

Unless it is a sustained and ever-present force, how can nonviolence triumph over this?

14. The right just keeps hatching nuts.... A conceiled weapon

 

murder today proves it. A well liked waitress was murdered while she worked at a Waffle House because she ask a customer not to smoke.

Now.... if he had not had the gun on person, it is likely she would not have been shot.

Waitress shot to death after asking customer to put out smoke

She was shot in the head because she asked somebody not to smoke.

The 52-year-old Waffle House server was doing her job and enforcing the no-smoking policy at the restaurant when she was shot by a customer she told to put out a cigarette.

The popular waitress had worked at the restaurant for eight years, and she spent some of the last moments of her life asking customers if they had enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday.

Our associates are in shock over the whole incident, said Pat Warner, vice president of Waffle Houses corporate office in Atlanta. Its a senseless tragedy. Ive been with Waffle House for 16 years and dont recall anything like this.

Biloxi police Sgt. Donnie Dobbs said the customer, Johnny Max Mount, 45, is accused of fatally shooting the waitress early Friday after he fired up a cigarette inside the business. Police said Mount was still inside the restaurant when police believe he pulled out a 9-mm handgun and shot the woman. She died a short time later at Merit Health Biloxi. She had a single gunshot wound to her head.

Thank you for supporting Hillary, Kath~



Hillary Clinton comes out in support of Planned Parenthood

Hillary Clinton is making her position on Planned Parenthood very clear: She is in full support of the organization.

Im proud to stand with Planned Parenthood, Ill never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions, Clinton said in a video released Monday.

The video is the strongest statement on the organization to date from the 2016 Democratic front-runner.

Planned Parenthood has been under fire since a series of undercover videos were released by an anti-abortion advocacy group over the past few weeks.

That is what is so cool about this campaign. Women coming together for a woman. Men getting involved for a woman.

30. I Couldn't Be More With Them As Well

What they actually provide the vast majority of the time has been totally misrepresented by the right to life extremists and the MSM has not pointed that out.

I used them in my younger days as well because I didn't want a child before I was ready and in a good position to provide for she or he.

The nut balls have become more extreme now right down to thinking contraception is a no no.

Of course a comfortable percentage of right to lifers are just fine with capital punishment, even with the fact that we have without a doubt executed innocent people. Or killing abortion nurses and doctors.

Yes, now the nuts don't believe in contraception, either. Must suck to be one of them.

Christian terrorist, Richard Lewis Dear, attacks Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. 3 dead, including a law enforcement officer, and nine wounded.

To blame, besides the terrorist and his crazy interpretation of right and wrong, is every single republican running for President, every single official voting for defunding of Planned Parenthood and every single news outlet that does not tell the truth about the false claims and outright lies spread by Christian fanatics aka, terrorists
