"I was having trouble finding the clinic Saturday morning, but then I saw you guys waving your signs around, and I knew exactly which exit to take. I made it to my abortion with five minutes to spare. Keep up the good work!"

This onslaught of evil is too subtle, it’s too sinister, to be of human origin! It must be — it is! — a CAREfully CALculated CONSPIRACY of fallen angels, called demon spirits! And it is TIME for the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST to ARISE! And SHINE THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!
"As Republicans seek to defund Planned Parenthood and deny vital health care services to American women most in need, they want to spend taxpayer dollars to support crisis pregnancy centers, which have become anti-choice groups’ sneaky alternative to legitimate reproductive health clinics."
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Cal.) in an email to MoJo’s Kate Sheppard. After attempting to strip all funding from Planned Parenthood (citing, among other things, fiscal discipline), some House Republicans want to pour federal dollars into “crisis pregnancy centers,” which tell women that abortion can cause breast cancer and suicidal tendencies.
To recap: Taxpayer funding for an organization that provides accurate information and valuable resources to women: bad! Taxpayer funding for organizations that provide false and misleading information, to advance an often undisclosed religious agenda, with little regard for actual health issues involved: good!
Meet the Jacksonville, Florida, GOP mayoral candidate who’s joking about killing medical providers. “I mean, I’m not going to be politically correct,” he explains now. “That was a joke. This was an audience for this. This is a Catholic Church. I guarantee you they are 110 percent pro-life.”
BREAKING: “Pro-life” now means “pro-bombing stuff.”
When a Republican congressman described late-term abortions in detail today, trying to drum up support for their defunding of Planned Parenthood, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) responded with an impassioned, personal story. Take three minutes to watch a moving “Ms. Smith Goes to Washington” moment.
