It takes a village to kill this many children.Politics

A few days after the Sandy Hook shooting, and the NRA press conference a high school friend was on Facebook bemoaning the evils of the NRA and their influence over Washington. She posted this quote from a similar blog rant:

“…..my uterus is more regulated than my guns. Birth control and reproductive health services are harder to get than bullets. What is that about? Guns don’t kill people — vaginas do?…”

My response was “Well, the truth is more people die there.”

My point to her was that if she as concerned about the NRA influence over Washington she should be equally concerned about PBS, and AARP and Planned Parenthood. She didn’t get it.

Speaking of Planned Parenthood…

According to The Washington Examiner a just released report says 2011 was a banner year for Planned Parenthood.

333,964 abortions in 2011. By the way, that’s roughly the population of Aurora, Colorado (332,354)

Nearly a million abortions from 2009-2011.

That comes at a price tag of $542,000,000 in federal subsidies.

Do some math: That’s $1622.93 per abortion.

Your fair share of the killing is $4.80.

At that rate it takes 338 taxpayers to cover the cost of an abortion.

This as we also note that cancer and screening services have dropped by 29 percent since 2009.

2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

Tell me again how more than 50 million abortions since 1973 is a “women’s health” issue.

No. Don’t tell me. ‘Cause it’s not.
