As we all know, Bill Hobbs is on his great crusade to defund Planned Parenthood and instead move all that money into government-run services, because the TNGOP loves government-run healthcare, except when it’s proposed by Democrats.
No, wait, that can’t be it.
Because the TNGOP so loves the babies, except for the brown ones it doesn’t want to have to issue birth certificates to…
Okay, so that can’t be it.
Why, oh, why would the TNGOP be so anxious to gain control of women’s healthcare?
Because, my friends, not only do they hate abortion, they don’t want you to be able to get birth control. See, Planned Parenthood will help you get birth control of any sort (see, they want you to be able to have babies when you want to have babies, hence the whole “planned” part), even, if you should need one, an abortion. But, mostly, the people at Planned Parenthood stare at a lot of cooters and hand out a lot of free condoms and issue a lot of prescriptions for birth control pills to people who otherwise don’t have easy access to healthcare.
And the Republicans want to make it as difficult as possible for you to keep from getting pregnant if you don’t want to be.
But, no matter how many rules they put in place to allow people who don’t want to do their jobs to get out of doing their jobs even though they knew what their job would entail when they applied for it*, in order to keep you from having control over your body, as long as places like Planned Parenthood exist, you can have sex without getting pregnant.
Why Republicans are so hung up on and outraged by women having worry-free sex is beyond me, but lord knows they will do whatever they can to stand in the way of it.
But that is their plan and this defunding of Planned Parenthood in order to throw us onto the mercy of people who can now refuse to provide us with the medications we need is all a part of it.
Oh, Bill Hobbs, when the day comes when each woman is assigned a monitor to watch us to make sure that we’re not having any kind of non-reproductive sex, will you be mine?
*Though, if you want another sort of good fun, consider how hilarious it is that Republicans bitch about union workers who sit around and do nothing but stand in the way of things while they try to create a whole group of people who will be allowed to sit around and do nothing but stand in the way of things.
