The House voted today to stop federal funding of Planned Parenthood. The vote passed 240-185. That means 10 Democrats voted for this? Planned Parenthood (bless them, fund them, donate to them) gets one third of their funding from the government. And I never thought that I'd link to Fox News, but there's an article about how a proposal from Betty McCollum (D-MN) about cutting Nascar funding (WTF) was voted down, while cutting family planning funds down. Drag racing up, women's lives down! I'm trying to track down how representatives in Arkansas voted, but I know it's not good. What can you do? Sign a stupid internet petition, write a real letter, call, show up in person with a sign? Right now, bills are being crafted that will make it ok for a person to kill a doctor for performing an abortion if that person is doing it to save the fetus's life [Update: it's gone now, but why did it exist in the first place???]. It is all I can do to not send emails to all representatives in AR that just say "YOU FUCKING SUCK". I know it's not the end, but really? Birth control for horses, but not for human women.
Never let anyone say that there is no need for feminism anymore. Make them explain why. Make them explain this. And this. And this.
