#WarOnWomen: Arizona Close to Defunding Planned Parenthood | Angry Black Lady Chronicles

And the War on Women marches on.

The Arizona Senate Committee on Healthcare and Medical Liability Reform approved HB 2800 which strips state funding from any group (like Planned Parenthood) that performs abortion even though existing state law and the fucking Hyde Amendment already prohibit the use of state/federal funds for abortion.

Kerrrist.

From Think Progress:

Earlier this week, an Arizona Senate panel approved HB 2800 on a party-line vote. The Arizona Senate Committee on Healthcare and Medical Liability Reform’s move came on the heels of support from the Arizona House, which approved the legislation earlier this month.

If HB 2800 is indeed passed by the full Senate, Gov. Jan Brewer (R) is expected to sign the legislation into law, stripping state funding from any group such as Planned Parenthood that performs abortions.

Unfortunately, the move would have a pronounced impact on poorer Arizona women who rely on places like Planned Parenthood for many of their health care needs.

~snip~

Former Surgeon General Richard Carmona, who is running for Arizona’s open U.S. Senate seat, criticized the state legislature, calling the Senate panel’s approval was an “extremely misguided” decision. “As a longtime health care professional,” Carmona told ThinkProgress, “I can say without hesitation that restricting access to reproductive health care is detrimental to the health and safety of women. Period.”

Arizona state law already prohibits using tax dollars for abortions. The real effect of HB 2800 would be to take away necessary health care services to low-income Arizonans.

I’m running out of codas to append to these sorts of blog posts.   These bills are flying out of state legislatures so quickly that it’s nearly impossible to keep up.  How can I be expected to write something original and pithy each time I’m forced to post about one of these abominable bills. I need to come up with some sort of script.

Republicans hate women.

I want to poke the GOP with asiangrrlMN’s rusty pitchfork™.

I want to slap the GOP with my rusty uterus. No wait.

I don’t know.  I give up.

We need to vote these fuckers out.

I’m sorry to hear about your friend. Also if you throw in Santorum’s desire to wage a war on porn ( http://www.forbes.com/sites/joshbarro/2012/03/15/santorum-promises-broad-war-on-porn/ ) when he becomes president, you have to wonder about a party that is this obsessed with sex.

Say what you want about porn, but how far do you take something like that? Would he want romance novel companies (some of the sex scenes can get graphic) or people who have webpages with pornographic/erotic art or fiction taken down? And doesn’t this go against their idea of less government?

Less government is good — to them — when it means less access to health care and other services.

MORE government is good — to them — when it means getting all up in a woman’s uterus, mandating what people can and cannot watch, etc.

I hate these pigs (with apologies to actual pigs).
