Save Planned Parenthood For Those With Vaginas

Via on Mar 17, 2011

But if you’re a man who doesn’t care about women’s sexual health… then that is duly f!@#ing noted. And there’s nothing less hot than a man who doesn’t care about vaginas.

Planned Parenthood is the largest women’s health care provider in America — 1 in 5 women in America count on their health centers for care. Because of Planned Parenthood, every year more than 1 million women get cancer screenings, more than 1.2 million teens will get honest sex education and more than 2.5 million women receive birth control to allow them one of the most basic human rights — to plan their family for themselves.

Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from all federal funding for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other lifesaving care. The bill slashed the nation’s family planning program from $327 million to zero — a program that serves 5 million women every single year.

We can stop this in the Senate. Let’s make sure our Senators hear us loud and clear. TAKE ACTION NOW! Share this petition with everyone you know. Get loud. And fight!

And watch this hilarious and brilliant video from The Second City Network.

I’m not saying that people who oppose basic funding for women’s health can go f!@# themselves, but as far as I’m concerned, they won’t have any other option.
