Today in “pandering to a radical and ill-informed base for votes resulting in destructive and real consequences” news:
Mitt Romney is doubling down on his commitment to defund Planned Parenthood, telling a reporter in Missouri that he would “get rid of” the country’s best-known reproductive health care provider if he were elected president.
In an outdoor interview with Ann Rubin of KSDK.com, Romney offered a few suggestions on how he would cut the deficit.
“Of course you get rid of Obamacare, that’s the easy one, but there are others,” he said. “Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that.”
Planned Parenthood responded to Romney’s comments on Tuesday, characterizing them as dangerous and out of step with what Americans want.
“When Mitt Romney says he wants to ‘get rid’ of Planned Parenthood, he means getting rid of the preventive health care that three million people a year rely on for cancer screenings, birth control, and other preventive care,” said Dawn Laguens, Vice President for Planned Parenthood Action Fund, in a written statement. “Mitt Romney simply can’t be trusted when it comes to women’s health.”
I honestly had no idea a human being could be THIS stupid.
The Arizona Senate approved a bill Tuesday to shield doctors from “wrongful birth” lawsuits, which can arise if physicians don’t tell pregnant women of prenatal problems that could lead them to decide to have an abortion. The measure now goes to the House. State Sen. Nancy Barto, who sponsored the bill, said allowing medical malpractice lawsuits endorses the idea that someone is to blame if a child is born with a disability. Opponents say the bill is unnecessary and would infringe on a woman’s reproductive rights.
Arizona. Continuing to test the bounds of ignorance, indecency and hatred in every possible direction.
