Newsflash! Defunding Planned Parenthood Results In More Births!

Texas cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and the results are in.

Cosmopolitan published an article yesterday regarding those results: Texas Women Use Less Birth Control, Have More Babies Since the State Defunded Planned Parenthood

Mostly, this is a big duh. With Planned Parenthood out of the picture, common sense says that there will be less birth control because someone else isn’t paying for your pregnancy protection. Whether this is good or bad can be debated. Since when birth control is used correctly, within the confines of a marriage, then there’s nothing wrong with birth control.

Births are up. Again, common sense. Less birth control equals more births.

Which means people are having sex anyway. Which calls into question the intelligence of those having sex, who don’t want kids.

On the other hand, does more births mean less abortions? One can only hope.

On the other had, the article decries the "most highly effective contraception" options as not being available to low-income women. Whatever happened to condoms?

And why is it the woman’s responsibility? Why doesn’t she tell her man no, if he doesn’t show up with a box of condoms? It’s shared sex. Why not share the responsibility?

Catholics and Satanists United In Their Support For Planned Parenthood’s Important Work

In the wake of the undercover videos showing that Planned Parenthood is probably involved in the sale of baby body parts, an understandable backlash has developed. As Pro-Life protesters planned to descend on Planned Parenthood offices around the country, two unlikely groups have found themselves on the same team in their struggle to show their support for the abortion giant: Catholics and Satanists.

On August 21, 2015, the Catholic group, Catholics for Choice, issued a press release indicating their support for Planned Parenthood.

Women’s health clinics across the country will again be harassed by the antichoice movement this weekend. In response, Catholics organized to remind clinic staff that we stand with Planned Parenthood and support the important work they do.1

While Catholics for Choice were delivering cakes and messages of goodwill, members of the Satanic Temple of Detroit held weird rituals. Apparently,

many Satanists believe abortion is sacred and some participate in the procedures themselves. In fact, former Satanist Zachary King explained that participating in abortions is particularly important for Satanists because it is considered the best way to give an offering to Satan.2

So, what this says is that Satanists believe abortions are particularly important, and Catholics for Choice support the important work they do.

I wonder how the Pope would feel about that.
