Ah, Colorado. Called one of the best states to live and work according to the Denver Business Journal. BUT: Expect to pay OUT LOUD for every liberal piece of sham that funds abortion, contraception, and anything ‘cannabis’.
Colorado houses and helps protect one of the most notorious abortionists in the United States; Warren Hern has been protected by the federal government to kill babies UP TO term for tens of thousands of dollars. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains has a contract to supply aborted fetal tissue to Colorado State University in Fort Collins, and was targeted for their flippant attitude and disregard for federal laws regarding aborted baby organ trafficking. Mark Ferrandino is the first openly gay male legislator in Colorado history and is CEO of Denver Public Schools…yes PUBLIC schools. Legal weed in Colorado has produced a new pseudo homeless society and crime….and now, FREE CONTRACEPTION.
But not so much anymore. Has personal responsibility hit the road? Are women so pathetically entitled that they EXPECT to get FREE birth control paid by taxpayers? Why should Coloradoans pay for women’s sex lives? How is that NOT getting the government into the bedroom of every Coloradoan?
“Over the past seven years, a private foundation donated about $27 million to boost the program, but the grant money expired July 1…….A push to use state taxpayer dollars to continue the program failed in the Republican-led state Senate earlier this year, killed by ideological and fiscal objections.”
This so-called ‘acclaimed program’, Colorado Family Planning Initiative, was privately funded and doing the exact same thing Margaret Sanger accomplished with the American Birth Control League AND Planned Parenthood. This Colorado program was funded by a private anonymous donor for five years, has provided IUD’s and other implants to low-income women AND girls in Colorado since 2009. It is proven that the IUD does NOT keep women from conceiving, the IUD prohibits a newly conceived baby from attaching to the uterine wall to get the food he/she needs to survive and grow. If the baby cannot attach, he/she simply dies from starvation.
“What we have seen over many years is that access to contraception does not equal fewer unintended pregnancies and fewer abortions,” Carrie Gordon Earll, senior director of public policy for the conservative Christian ministry Focus on the Family, said. “Availability of contraception leads to increased sexual activity, which leads to unintended pregnancies and abortions.” Earll said she found it offensive that the state was dispensing IUDs and that teens don’t need to be accompanied by an adult to receive these forms of contraceptives. “It totally undermines parental rights.” Read the rest here.
Liberal Colorado is running the show for the rest of the state that doesn’t really share their ‘vision’ of being forced to decide between new laws for the LGBT, weed, abortion and contraception OR their PROTECTED Constitutional right to Religious Freedom & Liberty, gun rights and freedom of speech.
But is the Republican comeback going to take the tax burden off of road weary Coloradoans? Just look at their comments on pulling back contraception on Facebook today via Denver Post:
1. “This is no right to obtain birth control. I am absolutely for women making that decision to be on birth control but it is not my responsibility or my neighbors to make sure they have access. They have choices in life and those choices are their choices, not mine.”
2. “Planned Parenthood is getting 500 million taxpayer dollars a year. Go there for your “free” birth control. Why do taxpayers have to be on the hook to every single agency that hands out birth control???? The government just keeps making it easier and easier to throw personal responsibility out the window.”
3. “Walmart, $4 a month”
4. “Be responsible and stop begging for other peoples hard earned money”
5. “Where’s the weed tax money going? Hmm…”
6. “It’s not the government’s job to provide your birth control. You can’t pay for it? Stop having sex.”
7. “Call Obama”
NOTABLE MENTION: The BEST comment that has NOTHING to do with birth control is [DRUMROLL]: “Bible says life begins at breath.” Breath???
The REAL & TRUE ‘war on women’ is the one that the abortion czars, Planned Parenthood, and state and federal government made; it steals their virtue, then their sexuality and eventually their children.
