Some people are lame

Jesse drives by our town's Planned Parenthood clinic every day on his way to work. He told me that every Friday there are protestors out there picketting. Here's the thing, that clinic doesn't even do abortions. They do lots of other good stuff like give women access to free or low cost birth control. They educate and inform women about their health and reproductive choices. They do pap smears and provide other health services. But some anti-choice group has decided to march around the clinc every Friday to try to stop women from even going into the place. The place that helps women avoid getting pregnant and having to choose if they should have an abortion or not. Tell me how that makes any sense at all.

oh, you've hit the nail on the head. sadly, all the nutters outside protesting the very small percentage of PP's business don't realize that providing access to contraception and sex education that actually works would (gasp) PREVENT SOME ABORTIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE.

ach, sex education/contraception is the one subject that will, every time, make me want to tear my hair out and run around screaming.
