The state’s executive council has massacred Planned Parenthood. I hope people in New Hampshire who aren’t crazy can find a way to win this fight. From Jezebel:
The New Hampshire Executive Council has voted to cancel the state’s contract with Planned Parenthood, rejecting up to $1.8 million in state funding — “about 20 percent of its total annual funding” — and has also “stripped its authority to dispense low-cost birth control and antibiotics to uninsured patients.”
And now the the usual Whitworthian bleating: being personally anti-abortion is acceptable (hey, that’s what choice means!) but anyone who thinks their personal anti-abortion beliefs should be forced, directly or, like here, indirectly, on the rest of us is a jerk who’s unfit for for public office. I’m looking at you, Brad Trost, and every single bum in your Saskatoon-Dumbolt riding who voted for you.
