If ever there was fertile ground to fight this issue, Ohio is the place. My deluded, fellow Ohioans elected to maintain the Republican hammerlock over this state for another four years. These high and mighty hypocrites are going to continue to assault women's rights in the name of their "savior" until the voters start getting hip to the scam in this state. For what it's worth, I'm not holding my breath. But this used to be, at least recently, a purple state. I would settle for that to be the correction toward a blue wave in Ohio down the road.

This shit is getting so old. I don't understand why so many women put up with this.

Because you are old enough to remember coat hangers as a method of self-induced abortion. For today's abortion has always been law. The morning after pill is also available. The implications of the slow erosion of rights with much of the conservative legislation goes unnoticed.

@sticks, brainwashed christians. Force women to have a child and then deny them any help at all. No child care. Nothing. The cycle of poverty this causes is shameful.


Planned Parenthood does so much to help women and men, I cannot imagine why anyone logical would want to cripple them in any way. De-funding does that, and not only for whatever specific procedure to which some people object.

Question is what are those funds intended for and what are they used for. I'm very confused on this particular case. For example, if the funds they get are NOT meant to fund abortions in any way, including institutions that do them, but PP wants to use them to fund those institutions, then I can understand why the challenge would fail: money's earmarked for one thing cannot be used for another.

The other confusion is that this was a constitutional challenge. I'm not sure what PP was challenging was unconstitutional insofar as receiving funds or it's relation to abortion.

Maybe you can help clear up this confusion?


For the last time. If men got pregnant this would not be a question

More of this? We are moving backwards instead of forward. Get these politicians out of my uterus!



I don't get it. Quote from this Reuters article[1]:

"It required the department to ensure that funds it received through six non-abortion-related federal programs was not used to fund entities that performed non-therapeutic abortions."

So if PP doesn't do abortions, what's the problem? They ensure those moneys don't go to entities that perform non-therapeutic abortions and case closed.

Or is it the case that PP did NOT want to make said assurance such that they kept the option to use non-abortion related federal programs to fund abortion entities?

Not entirely clear on what PP's stance against the law is for, if they truly don't fund abortions, as I read it, they would not have run afoul of this law. Maybe someone can explain exactly what the constitutional challenge was or what they were suing for, or against, as I'm very confused about this case...
