Let's assume that Planned Parenthood is making money. So what? Isn't that what conservatives in the USA love? Aren't they showered with praise and called "job creators", even if they do nothing but fire half their staff and give themselves bonuses with more money than God? But a company that makes money giving essential reproductive services to the poor and destitute, solving a myriad of other problems in the long run, is deceitful and bad and should be demonised?
I really don't like stereotypes, but conservatives in the USA really aren't helping in portraying themselves as anything other but the worst kind of scum.

Someone isn't familiar with the Hyde Amendment. PP can't make money off of the federal government with abortion because the federal government doesn't pay for it.

@Extraintrovert Yes, but Planned Parenthood earns money immorally by letting women out of the kitchen, I mean killing baybeez.
They should find a moral way to make money, e.g. injecting toxic chemicals into the water table or bilking customers out of millions then begging the government for a bailout when the scam falls apart.

A leading light of the Forced Birth Movement, it seems.

See Planned Paerenthood make their money off a whopping 3% of their service!
And while SOME forms of hormonal birth control can cause a slight increase in the chances of breast cancer, they also cause a significant decrease in the chances of getting ovarian and uterine cancers. Apparently what fundies really want is for women to die or lose their reproductive organs.

A moneymaking plan approximately as effective and worthwhile as rendering photographic film down for its silver content. Honestly, does this jackass believe that Planned Parenthood is run by Dr. Claw?

if you're knocking on low-end condoms, donate and upgrade their damn quality, genius!
4/12/2012 12:58:43 AM
And those kids are going to think you're insane with your bizarre conspiracy theory.
Though I really was amused imagining some right-winger researching condoms on Consumer Reports, I was disappointed that they came so close but didn't quite make the connection that providing free contraception will reduce the number of abortions.

"they’re the ones making the money off all of this."
Yes, all of that lucrative abortion money.
"Hey I want to get rich. Who has the most money? I know! Woman who can't afford to have children. Sweet! I'm going to be rolling in dough!"

Why does everyone have to have a secret agenda in conspiracy land? Maybe, just maybe, their declared aims are their actual aims.

Damn Ronald Reagan for deinstitutionalizing the head cases!
4/12/2012 10:59:42 AM
Or maybe they're about, y'know, helping people plan their families, as opposed to the fundie "plop out kids you can't feed or educate because a magic man in the sky said so".

"You know Planned Parenthood sounds like a nice name, ‘ooh Planned Parenthood, and they’re providing free condoms to me, ooh yay,’ but then when you start peeling back, you know, what’s their method?"
You really have no idea what Planned Parenthood actually does. Abortions are but a wee bit of the services they provide.
As to providing you with free condoms, I say, great, but let's see if we can get you a free, permanent sterilization. Your lot shouldn't breed.

Blatant bullshit ahoy.

1) The Hyde Amendment means that it is illegal for the federal government to fund abortions in any way, shape or form.
2) There is a great deal more money to be made from pregnancy and postnatal care than from abortion. You clearly believe that PP just wants to do abortions because they're evil.
3) Abortions are a whopping three percent of what PP does.
4/14/2012 3:00:53 PM
So you give out scaremongering postcards with bullshit on them, act like all PP does is abortion, and then you brag about how you're not really giving out answers and just want to cause controversy? Wow, fuck you.
Also? Holy shit, learn proper sentence structure. This reads like an improvised speech.
4/17/2012 8:24:41 PM
You know, I think Planned parenthood could decree on television that they will never do another abortion again, and these wing-nuts will still be railing against them. If planed Parenthood is giving out the lowest quality condoms for free, its still better than someone not using a condom at all.
It makes me wonder how brain damaged you have to be to think that logically good things are an evil conspiracy.
4/19/2012 3:53:43 AM
Someone needs to forward the bit about the postcards to PP. I smell a lawsuit.

Stop lying about birth control and there will be less women with unwanted pregnancies and less men causing them.
