State officials' attempt to defund Planning Parenthood in Ohio was rejected today as unconstitutional by a federal judge.

Another defeat for the forced birthers of the Talibornagain. Let freedom ring.

Article is here.

I still want to know under what constitutional basis is a private organization owed taxpayer money.

Re: Ohio law defunding Planned Parenthood blocked by federal judge


Their free speech argument is really stupid. Taking away public funding from your organization doesn't violate your right to association or your free speech rights. Saying your first amendment rights are violated because they refuse to fund your abortions is about as stupid as it comes.

As for their equal protection argument, again, I don't see how that has any validity. There is nothing that requires them to fund abortions. Just because you have a right to have an abortion doesn't mean the government has an obligation to fund them.

Everything they said just sounds like entitled idiocy.

Oh and no, the government not funding a woman's abortion does not violate her right to choose.

I don't know....ask all the banks and corporations that get our money as to why they are owed/deserve it.

Making up any new slurs for those who seek to protect human life from the eugenicist's slaughter house?

I didn't know PPH funded abortions with taxpayer money. I thought the Congress critters prohibit that... :peace

Have you read up on the founder. That's what she devised.

Sans abortion and selling baby parts...they do good work.

I'll bet you're perfectly okay with big oil companies, big banks, etc. getting handouts in the form of ridiculous tax breaks.

I see that you have a Bible verse in your signature. Maybe you should include this one instead:

"Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." Exodus 20:16

And oh, BTW, that just so happens to be one of those Ten Commandments that y'all love to shove down our throats. You should try actually following them for a change. Because Jesus had some things to say about Christians who don't.

Indeed, I have. And what they do today is nothing like the Chicken Little accounts of what her nefarious intentions might have been.

Including abortion and providing fetal tissues and organs for research, they do good work.

They actually fund abortion, but only towards certain situations.

Let babies die, let the innocent fry all for the crass politics of "choice".

Two can play the stupid insulting the otherside game, only you're the one defending slaughtering babies, not me.

A healthcare clinic that kills human life for no other reason than someone wants the victim dead. I think the proper term is hired killer.

How many of those "victoms" are you willing to adopt?

Wrong. There are numerous reasons why an abortion might be desirable.

Sorry that's such a difficult concept for you.

You mean like if the woman's life is in danger or the fetus is dead?

A penny not spent is a penny received. Not including the strings attached, corporate tax breaks are effectively the same as corporate handouts, which most Republicans and some Democrats support.
