Un-Planned Parenthood?by Art Jacobson on May. 03, 2013, under AHCCCS, Children's Healthcare, Christian Taliban, Family Planning, Health, Health Care, Medicaid, Planned Parenthood, Politics, Right to Life
It turns out thatGovernor Brewer might be okay with that, according to a story in Friday’s Star. The expansion of Medicaid, which would add 300,000 people to the Arizona Healthcare Cost Containment System, is being held hostage by a small group of ‘right to life’ legislators.
“No funds for Planned Parenthood or we’ll sink Medicaid expansion.”
Planned Parenthood is a primary source of family and health services of all sorts to women (and men) who might otherwise go without. The result is healthier, happier, families.
Clearly these services are so wicked that some of our legislators are willing to sacrifice health service to 300,000 of their fellow Arizonans to make sure they are not funded. It’s a lose-lose situation.
The “Lifers” are so concerned about the unborn that they are willing to sacrifice the wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of their fellow citizens.
