Archive for the ‘Abortion Clinics’ Category

AbortionWe all know about the war on women’s health that is being waged by the Republican Presidential candidates.  I will say that Rick Santorum has at least been consistent all of his political life.  He would like to see Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health clinics just disappear.  But then there’s Mitt Romney, who as Governor of Massachusetts used to be pro-choice and supported PPFA’s mission.  And now, of course, he has done a total reversal.

If Romney gets the presidential nomination, consider that he will try to stop PPFA (and the independent clinics) from not just performing abortions but also breast exams, life saving cervical cancer screenings, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and offering birth control.

I urge those of you who support women’s health (and who trust women to make their own decisions) to get involved in the presidential campaign.  There may be no more important one than this one.

Divorce

Divorce

Are you a “middle aged” woman?   Are you recently divorced?

If so, you might be interested in the observations of one Christopher Coleman, an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, who has found that divorced middle aged women are more likely to contract HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

One reason is that they tend to “let their guard down” with new sexual partners and avoid using contraception since they are unafraid of getting pregnant.

Also, as you get older, physiological changes due to menopause (such as the thinning of vaginal walls) make it more that a woman will contract a virus. Then there is the fact that medications that would be used to treat an STD or HIV become hard for a woman to tolerate because an aging body metabolizes medications differently.

Careful, girls!

PP Abortion

PP Abortion

Everyone knows that Planned Parenthood does more than abortions.  Well, almost everybody.  If you are an anti-abortion zealot, you’d say that’s all they do.  One of the things the PPFA facilities do is offer breast cancer screenings and over the years, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has provided them with almost $1 million to help women.

But now, something is fishy.  Citing the fact that a certain Congressman has held a hearing examining PPFA’s operations (an anti-abortion Congressman), the Foundation has just announced that they will no longer provide PPFA with funding!!!    That’s right.  Some nutball decides to hold a sham hearing on PPFA and the folks at the Foundation are now running for cover.

Shame on the folks at the Susan G. Komen Foundation, a normally great organization for a worthy cause.   Don’t expect any more contributions from me!
