Republicans Plan New Abortion Push

This is a nightmare for women, with Roe v Wade, women everywhere were saved from backstreet abortions either killing them or maiming them, I hope with every fiber of my being that those days never return; but with our current Supreme Court being the way it is, we can’t dismiss that worry. The conservative right is so dogmatic over demanding the right to legislate reproductive rights in all of its expressions, they fail to even try seek any understanding of private situations. I know their justification is three pronged : sanctity of life, life begins at conception and fetuses have feelings. However I wouldn’t be so quick to find their position the height of hypocrisy, if they weren’t so adamant over the death penalty, war hungry and had absolute disdain for poor people once they are born. The child poverty rate in our nation is an embarrassment, our foster care system is pathetic, the Republican Party overtly and deliberately cuts poverty programs statewide and at the federal level knowing that children will go to bed hungry and yet a fetus is given more of a priority than the woman carrying it. What really sickens me is the fact that this video is a sham, edited to misrepresent the work done at Planned Parenthood, which is a lifeline for poor women everywhere when in need of gynecological care, their abortion rate makes up only 3% of their overall gynecological/obstetrics services. Unfortunately the Republican Party will take a fabrication and use it to further their own agendas regardless of the horrible consequences to women, as long as their religious doctrine is enforced and their “conscience” assuaged, it is the only thing that matters. I believe that part of the conservative right’s ideology is to keep government out of people’s private lives, well it would be nice for women if the Republican Party would keep their noses out of woman’s uterus’ for once.
