I am very happy that he took this action, but AP reporter James A. Finley who wrote a piece for Time Magazine against Blunt's action, isn't happy at all. According to Finley, Blunt is "playing politics with cancer sccreening". HA!! As if the world of government-funded health care is not subject to "politics"!
For fifteen years, Planned Parenthood of Southwest Missouri clinics in Joplin and Springfield have offered free breast and cervical cancer screenings as part of the state's "Show Me Healthy Women" program. Now Governor Matt Blunt has announced that he will cut off all program funding to Planned Parenthood and redirect it to other health clinics. "Patients should not have to go to an abortion clinic to access life-saving tests," Blunt declared. Refusing to fund cancer screening at the clinics, he said, "ensures women may access important preventative care without contributing to abortion providers' goal of facilitating the destruction of innocent life."
Clearly, Matt Blunt doesn't want to take the funds from pro-life tax payers in his state and direct them to pro-abort groups such as Planned Barrenhood. That's a good thing, since most people don't want the government to pay for or encourage slaughtering babies. And much more importantly, its evil and wrong for a government to fund the killing of the innocent. The government does not have the right/option to legalize killing the innocent.
Here is what Finley wrote immediately after he wrote the above paragraph in order to justify his claim that Blunt is "playing politics with cancer screening".
Here's the twist: The clinics in question do not provide abortion services, though they will discuss the procedure and make referrals.HA! As if that gets Planned Parenthood off the hook! Finley does not understand that encouraging moms to murder their babies and helping them to rationalize committing such an evil act is actually worse than the act of killing their innocent babies. Why? Because apart from the encouragement to kill their baby the killing is unlikely to occur. Without the Planned Parenthood rationale in their head, the baby killing process is stunted.
And that is why, folks, we must oppose Planned Parenthood and any other organization or group that promotes the baby-killing rationale. And that includes the LARGEST supporter of the abortion holocaust in America - the public school system.
Public school counselors (who are largely pro-aborts) can talk to your children and help them to get an abortion without your knowing! So, get your children out of the public school system before something like this happens.
