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!

Simply, the vast majority of couples who are done with child bearing may let the man get a vasectomy, a much simpler and safer procedure. Men must be educated as they feel they loose their “Maleness” when this occurs.

As well women who are unsure, or the man refuses the vasectomy, most often will tolerate one of the IUDs on the market and since they are approved for such along time – the Paragard 380T was approved for 10 years – it can always be taken out, with a high degree of success, everything else being equal in regards to their fertility. As well they last long enough to almost take the average women to menopause after enough childbearing.

So the options are significant to avoid the tubal ligation which is irreversible for the most part, unless you have lots of $$s and are happy with a below 50% success rate – I am not.
