Trump: I would shut down government over Planned Parenthood


Trump: I would shut down government over Planned Parenthood
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Monday he believes Republicans should shut down the government rather than fund Planned Parenthood, the health services group that is facing scrutiny after undercover videos of its officials emerged.

GOP base: We were promised a pony -- that would deport and defund everything. And if we don't get it, we're voting for Trump.- LOLGOP

Republican Shenanigans

Subject: Planned Parenthood

Conservatives like to pretend they think rationally not emotionally
but the reality is all that “rational” thinking pretty much flies out the
window on anything related to abortion.
The controversy over Planned Parenthood is a prime example of this.
They’re incapable of separating their feelings about abortion from the facts
of what Planned Parenthood has been accused of.
The simple dispassionate fact of the matter is, if Planned Parenthood
is guilty of selling black market baby parts, then by the same logic, every
hospital and organization that handles organ donation is also guilty of
selling black market body parts and even whole bodies.

When someone donates an organ for transplant or medical research,
that organ doesn’t just magically appear at the final destination.
Someone has to deal with the gory details of getting it from point A to point B.
It can’t be just anyone and it can’t be by just any means.
These things have costs associated with them and we all know how much
conservatives hate the idea of “free stuff”, so someone has to pay those costs.

If conservatives think a price list for the handling of organ donation doesn’t exist then they’re being deliberately na├»ve.

The reality is, assuming they’re actually capable of thinking rationally and not emotionally,
is what was “uncovered” at Planned Parenthood is no different than the costs of handling any
other organ donation program.

Conservatives are just incapable of seeing that because they can’t see the facts through their
emotions over abortion.


Thanks for writing, Greg. Yeah, you're right, there is no middle ground with anti-abortionists, same with gun nuts, immigration, War on Christmas...etc....
The GOP mantra should be...God, Guns, Barefoot & Pregnant.
