The Ladies Bush Administration Says Contraception=Abortion
posted by July 16 at 13:13 PMon
The Bush administration wants to require all health programs, including women’s clinics, that receive federal funding to certify that they won’t refuse to hire nurses and other employees who object to abortion or birth control.
In other words, if Planned Parenthood wants to keep its federal funding, it has to agree to hire people who object to its core mission of family planning.
Even worse: The proposal, citing a 2001 Zogby poll (!!), defines “abortion” as any drug, procedure or action that “results in the termination of the life of a human being in utero between conception and natural birth, whether before or after implantation.” Because hormonal contraception (emergency and otherwise) can, in theory, prevent implantation of a fertilized egg (as, by the way, can menstruation), the proposal effectively defines birth control as abortion.
How much more can this man fuck up in his remaining 187 days in office?
