For the life of me, I cannot

For the life of me, I cannot understand why the left will consistently and vehemently defend the oppressed, the disempowered, and the voiceless when laws deny equality or opportunities to them.... yet consistently and vehemently support the murder of children as a fundamental right. And that generally being for the opinions, comfort, and convenience of the parents who knew full well that their actions could conceive a human life.

Defunding Planned Parenthood is not enough. It's a step in the right direction, but it's not enough.

How exactly do "women's rights" trump "human rights?" I would love to hear a philosophically sound, or even biologically sound argument for that.

Defund planned parenthood

Defund planned parenthood until congress can investigate. I am pro choice plus I know tissue in needed for testing, but selling aborted fetuses is just not right. Perhaps a signed consent from the mother to release the tissue for research,.

Rep. Taylor,

Rep. Taylor,
I am not a resident of Wisconsin so I cannot vote for you. But I would like to address the issue of Planned Parenthood and abortion. There are some things that Planned Parenthood does that is acceptable. Abortion and selling baby parts is not one of them. I understand that you have had problems with pregnancies. This is not something that I can identify with.personally. I had three children and had little problems during my pregnancies other than that they were three of them in in 3-1/2 years. However, daughter lost a baby early in a pregnance. My daughter-in-law lost two babies, one being the twin to my grandson. I now have 13 grandchildren. Eight of them are girls. I would never wish the heartache of an abortion on these girls. I know women that have had abortions and have had a great deal of heartache afterwards. I know a young woman that was raped and it resulted in a pregnancy. She made the decision to carry this baby and then give her baby up for adoption to a loving famlly. This is an open adoption and my young friend has visitation rights. She sees her daughter on a regular basis. She loves this child so very much. And she has even made the statement that she would go through the rape again, if that is the only way that she could give birth to this child. What really bothers me about Planned Parenthood is selling these parts of babies without blinking an idea. It seems so cold and heartless and all for money. If Planned Parenthood wants to continue in this business there is little that I can do to stop them. But I don't want to see the tax payer have to fund them. If those that are in favor of Planned Parenthood, abortions, and selling the baby parts are so very interested in continuing this work, let them make donatioons. I for one do not want my money used in this manner. I would rather my tax dollars go to feed hungry children!!

Anyone with a brain supports

Anyone with a brain supports Planned Parenthood. They are truthful and help more women than Republicans realize. Attacking PP usually only brings in donations for PP from their supporters...like myself!

The vast majority are not

The vast majority are not concerned with contraception prior to conception. You noted that abortions are only a very small percent of the services you offer. If that is true, then stop providing abortions and the staff will feel more safe. Instead of indoctrinating the youngest of females into the fold with the callous attitudes that abortion is just a form of birth control, make them accountable for the choices they make. The numbers clearly indicate that the vast number of abortions are being used as birth control. Further, the problem with this organization your are defending is that it aborts babies, adjusts their extraction techniques to ensure the babies organs are in tact, negotiates the price of those *five star* organs, lies to the public about doing it when we've all watched the full length videos, and then has the nerve to try to re-focus at the public by only discussing it's contraception services. Not one comment to date has been made to address the actual footage. Which leads me to believe, none you to actually watch those videos, how could you possibly defend this organization? ≈

How about making "the most

How about making "the most personal, private decisions about our lives" without the mandatory tax subsidies from most Americans who are appalled?

Rep. Taylor,

Rep. Taylor,

I take issue with your use of the term "heroic" to describe , physicians,nurses, and others who participate in selling the hearts, lungs and other body parts of unborn babies. No rational definition of hero would include someone who markets body parts from dead babies.

Whether Planned Parenthood profits from this practice, using the literally capitalistic definition of profit, is irrelevant. The practice is monstrous and as long as there are buyers abortions in all trimesters will be encouraged. It is morally indefensible, the people who knowingly participate in the buying and selling of the most vulnerable, are sociopathic.
