Americans pay for Medicaid. Americans pay for Title X. Americans subsidize abortion and contraception services for illegal immigrants. Every one of us here in these United States of America pays for ANY woman or minor girl to obtain contraceptive and abortions ON DEMAND. There is NO LAW that protects us from giving our money over to programs we do not believe in and many that we are not aware of, but we pay for it just the same.
This is the common rhetoric that the usual suspects chant:
Guttmacher: “Title X–supported family planning centers served 4.7 million women in 2008. The contraceptive services provided at these centers helped women and couples avoid 973,000 unintended pregnancies, which would have resulted in 433,000 unplanned births and 406,000 abortions. Without these services, unintended pregnancy and abortion in the United States would be one-third higher. And by helping women avoid unintended pregnancies, Title X–supported family planning centers saved taxpayers $3.4 billion in 2008—or $3.74 for every $1 spent on contraceptive care.”Guttmacher Institute.”
Population Institute (Robert Walker): “In a world beset by a growing tide of hunger, severe poverty, and social unrest, does it really make sense to cut international family planning assistance…..in their budget cutting zeal, some House Republicans are reportedly gearing up to wipe out the $648 million a year currently being spent for international family planning assistance……doing so would deny family planning services to 26.5 million women in the developing world, and would result in 7.8 million more unintended pregnancies.”
Speaker of the New York City Council (Christine Quinn): Planned Parenthood of New York City is one of the most respected institutions in our city. It provides essential preventive and reproductive health care to more than 50,000 New Yorkers each year, including comprehensive gynecological exams, testing for sexually transmitted disease and treatment, birth control, breast and cervical cancer screenings and more. It works with our city’s parents, teenagers and most vulnerable populations to make sure they are safe and healthy, and have access to the services they need. Many of those they serve would otherwise have nowhere else to go.
So many opinions, so much time on their hands.
The caste system in the world is hideous. The rich throw their wealth around trying to curb the population of the world ‘helping’ people in developing countries….instead what they are helping is people across the world to have sex without consequence because the American people, either through taxes or private donations, will pick up the tab for their abortions and contraception.
Much is exactly the same here in this country. It is the American people’s RIGHT to have sex without consequence or monetary responsibility, while WE THE PEOPLE are expected to pay for it while an unborn child has no rights at the opportunity to LIFE.
If Roe v. Wade began as a right to privacy, how is it that not all Americans can have that right?
An unborn child has a right to privacy, a right to LIFE and liberty.
