Jamie Howard:December 19, 2013 at 4:05 pmThat's possibly the sexiest thing I've ever heard ever! /sarcasm XD Ashlee Kopp:December 21, 2013 at 7:14 amAfter? C'mon... Us ladies have to multitask. We must eat our endless breadsticks while getting felt up by a cold ass pair of lubed up forceps lol! Lucas Baethke:December 19, 2013 at 3:03 pmPlanned Parenthood - possibly the most ironic name ever. Meagan Rice:December 19, 2013 at 3:07 pmif you honestly can not see the reason behind the name, then your comment is the most non-clever comment ever. continue to live in your world of idiocy. Lucas Baethke:December 19, 2013 at 3:10 pmPoor girl. What do you think they do at these places, hand out coupons for free deliveries at the hospital? Or perhaps you already know all too well what they do there. Either way, don't bother me with your ignorance, baby killer. Meagan Rice:December 19, 2013 at 3:12 pmLucas Baethke continue to thump on your bible. Do not assume that because I support places offering discounted gynecological care, and yes- abortions, that I have been a customer of baby killing. How about you stop eating off of your silver platter, and see the other side of the tracks. There's far more to this world than what the media wants you to see. Broaden your horizons, please, for the sake of humanity. Lucas Baethke:December 19, 2013 at 3:16 pmYou claim that I need to broaden my horizons, and yet you stereotype me. Not everybody who opposes murdering fetuses is religious. Some people just have enough common sense to tell that sticking pieces of metal into a pregnant woman's womb and pulling out pieces of something with a beating heart is wrong. I don't follow the media. That's all processed thought. But you seem to believe that what goes on in these places is acceptable. As Reagan said, "I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born." Certainly you're glad that your mother didn't choose to have you carried out of the back of one of these facilities in a plastic bag. Lex Rodriguez:December 19, 2013 at 3:16 pmLucas Baethke Planned Parenthood isn't just for abortions. The whole point of planned parenthood is for affordable and PREVENTATIVE healthcare for women. That includes affordable birth control, condoms, gynecological check-ups, and breast cancer screenings. But why would a male know or care about anything like that? Your wiener pills are free with insurance and so is that finger in your ass when you get a your prostate checked. How about you study up on what the shit your talking about before you try and discuss something that obviously has fuck all to do with you. Lucas Baethke:December 19, 2013 at 3:20 pmLex Rodriguez You make it very hard for anybody to take you seriously with caps lock, "weiner pills", "finger in your ass", and "fuck all to do with you". Surely you've heard that insults don't make good arguments. And as for it not having anything to do with me, it has everything to do with me. Someone's got to speak out against murder, even if society as a whole seems to think it's perfectly acceptable. Nicole Smith:December 19, 2013 at 3:24 pmWow. What happened did someone abort your offspring? You sound awful bitter there Luc. Lex Rodriguez:December 19, 2013 at 3:25 pmLucas Baethke Sorry, by your ignorant comment I just thought you needed things simplified. Bogey Behr:December 19, 2013 at 3:25 pmLucas Baethke before you show any more ignorance, you should dig your head out of the sand and have correct information. Planned Parenthood provides reproductive health care to both men and women. They give responsible people reproductive options to PREVENT unwanted pregnancies. Fewer unwanted children means a decrease in children being raised by unmarried and unprepared women, therefor lowering the amount of public assistance that's required to raise that child (in the form of food stamps, housing, etc.). I don't understand why anyone would think that wouldn't be a good idea. Meagan Rice:December 19, 2013 at 3:28 pmLucas Baethke I do think it's acceptable. Absolutely. What I (or any woman) choose to do with MY BODY is MY own choice. Most women who have abortions are women who already have children, and know that another child would not be in the best interest of the other children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY-bQ6UzhNI You should look in to this. Planned Parenthood is not just abortions, it's about preventing and allowing your to PLAN your PARENTHOOD. You're entitled to your opinion, but unless you have a uterus, you should keep that opinion to yourself. Imagine a day a woman you lay with comes to you telling you that her she couldn't afford her birth control (or the condom failed), and you are both poor and unable to afford a child. They're not cheap. They're incredibly expensive, and you need to wake up and realize that allowing a child to grow up poor (before the parents are able to properly support the child) or unappreciated is the one of the worst things a mother can do. Raymond Patrick Johns:December 19, 2013 at 3:33 pmAffordable contraception, realistic advice, affordable women's health... yet to you, Lucas Baethke, it's all baby killing. Way to be open-minded. It's cool, though, because you have a vagina and all... wait! No, that's right. The best advice a woman can get about women's health is from a white conservative guy who knows everything. Silly women! Kriss Hoffman:December 19, 2013 at 3:35 pmIronically enough, I used to work at a clinic... FOR THE RECORD... MOST planned parenthood clinics DO NOT offer the services you refer to. AND 95% of what planned parenthood does is family planning. (family planning: the practice of controlling the number of children in a family and the intervals between their births, particularly by means of artificial contraception or voluntary sterilization.) Speaking of ignorance... you might want to avoid a mirror... You also might want to know, that according to CDC statistics, only 17.4% of surgical abortions are non-hospital... But... Lucas... since you don't have a vagina... you have no right to have an opinion on this anyway... Meagan Rice:December 19, 2013 at 3:40 pmLucas Baethke http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY-bQ6UzhNI I suggest you look at this, and learn some facts. Yes, it's a little outdated, and I'm sure the numbers have changed, but you need to realize, that children are not cheap. Your quote by Mr. Reagan is true, but did you ever stop to wonder why people are for abortion? Did their mothers CHOOSE life, and they grew up in a poverish, abusive, or unappreciated environment? What we CHOOSE to do with OUR bodies, is OUR CHOICE. What YOU and your PARTNER choose to do is YOUR CHOICE. Do not judge others for the choices they choose to make, and like Eleanor Roosevelt said, "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in to hot water." Women are stronger than you think, and yes, some women use abortion as a form of birth control, which is wrong, but you cannot judge the many by the choices of the few. Good Day to you sir. Paul Boat:December 19, 2013 at 3:42 pmIf you're referring to safe, legal abortions, Lucas Baethke, you must be unaware that they are a tiny portion of Planned Parenthood's work. Spencer Dean Zwaschka:December 19, 2013 at 3:48 pmJust so everyone knows, while PP does offer other services, they are indeed, primarily an abortion business. Otherwise, they wouldn't have half of their income come from abortions... http://www.lifenews.com/2012/01/05/planned-parenthood-51-of-its-income-comes-from-abortions/ And Meagan, just so you know, without men, you can't get pregnant (who knew, right?), so men have just as much right to not only discuss abortion, but to have input in whether or not to have one. Also, as someone who appreciates science, and knowledge, I feel compelled to inform you that you have been lied to and have been fed incorrect information. A baby, no matter how old or at what stage of development, is not part of the mother's body. A basic understanding about biology and pregnancy will clearly show that. I don't know which high school biology class you took, but I would strongly recommend you look into more classes on the subject, because your previous teacher obviously did not do a good job. Also, a baby is not as expensive as people think, you just have to not be stupid about it. I can't find the article, but I know there are people who raise a baby for less than $1000 for the first year. Finally, the biggest function of sex is to reproduce, so everyone who has sex must know there is at least some possibility of getting pregnant, even with contraception (which can be a misleading term, because some forms of "contraception" can act as, or are actually, abortificients). So, a person shouldn't be having sex unless that person is ready for the possibility of having a child. For someone to kill an innocent, unborn baby because he/she isn't ready, but couldn't keep it in his/her pants (excluding rape cases), is irresponsible, and selfish. Okay, I'm done and out. Meagan Rice:December 19, 2013 at 3:57 pmSpencer Dean Zwaschka your long-winded and abusive comment about my education is uncalled for and frankly, misogynistic. I'm actually well versed in the fact that a baby is not technically a part of my body, but it is actually-technically- a parasite to my body, what women choose to do is our choice. And let's talk about men's input in to this equation. Most women who are in a healthy relationship will talk to their partner about the situation... but what about the women who are in abusive relationships? You've already discounted the rape victims, so I won't touch that. And a huge kudos goes out to those people who can raise children on such a small amount of money. But what about the large amount of the population who are uneducated about budgeting. You must be realistic in your thoughts. You must realize sex is a normal & healthy part of life, and people will have sex. The only thing you can do is try to PREVENT pregnancy if you're not planning on having a child. Requiring the world to remain abstinent is just foolish thinking. Who would've thought that? Oh, that's right, religious acolytes. We're no longer in the Dark Ages, turn on the light would you? Julia Knoll:December 19, 2013 at 4:01 pmMeagan Sugita Rice & others, I'm just going to point out a few fallacies in your arguments. Although I agree that Planned Parenthood does do a service by providing affordable reproductive care for women who couldn't afford it otherwise; abortions do not fall under that category. If you know you can't afford to have a child, you should take extreme measures to ensure you do not conceive. Did you know that less than 5% of women getting an abortion claim to actually use preventative methods properly? There are many other options besides abortion, such as adoption ( you do realize that many women who cannot conceive are desperate for children, even those with special needs!), and since conception does not happen instantaneously (24-36 hours after intercourse actually - neat!), you can spend the 50$ on plan B, which prevents pregnancy. If you think that 0% of women are not negatively affected emotionally (Post Abortion Stress Syndrome and a few others) or physically ( Hemorrhaging, becoming sterile, and damage to cervix or uterus plus many more are very possible) by abortions, you should do your research. On top of all that, you should also recognize that another living person which is developing inside of you, is indeed a PART of you, however it is not your body. It's another beating heart, developing brain, and person. Regardless of religion on this topic, there is science and if you did any research you would all know the truth. Jamie Howard:December 19, 2013 at 4:03 pmLucas Baethke actually you condescending prick, Planned Parenthood helped both sets of people I knew who happened to get pregnant during high school PLAN FOR THE KIDS. To try to suggest they will kill your kid when you want to keep it is about the stupidest thing I'd expect from someone who thinks we all came from a rib and are perfectly fine with an incestuous family populating the entire planet Earth. What world are you living in anyway where people have told you abortions DON'T happen lol Julia Knoll:December 19, 2013 at 4:05 pmKriss Hoffman How can you know that? Do you really think back-ally abortions are reported? Silly brain washed man :( Jamie Howard:December 19, 2013 at 4:12 pmJulia Knoll They don't care. By they mean all the Lucas Baethkes of the world. They want that feeling of superiority and the opportunity to judge (that thing they're not supposed to do) and condemn. They get a hard on telling other people how they're going to burn. All for wakling in the front door. Few of them are smart enough to realize that more than abortions go on in a Planned Parenthood. How they think it's any of their business is beyond me but that's always been the church. VERY concerned with what you do in your bedroom for some odd reason (grown men wearing dresses telling you what to do) and your sex life. Not to mention the unhealthy obsession with homosexuality. Elijah Jt Shadle:December 19, 2013 at 4:22 pmEducated yourselves at http://www.abort73.com/ Amy Renée Berkoff:December 19, 2013 at 4:58 pmYou are an ignorant and hateful little man. baby killer? How about you focus on all the wanted babies who die in miscarriage every year. Or the overwhelming number of zygotes that don't attach to the uterus wall after fertilization and are washed out? Not because of birth control like you idiot conservatives like to claim. This happens naturally. In countries where there is easy access to contraception abortion rates are lower. I know that's hard to believe for someone with all of three braincells, but stopping the war on women's sexuality and focusing on the actual fetus you claim you're trying to protect would get the movement a lot farther. Julia Knoll:December 19, 2013 at 5:16 pmAmy Renée Berkoff Most fallacious argument ever. If it wasn't so filled with ignorance I would laugh. Julia Knoll:December 19, 2013 at 5:21 pmJamie Howard You're being a hypocrite, generalizing the way you claim you don't want to be generalized. Also, I don't believe he's that concerned with what you do in the bedroom, but more concerned with giving a child that can't speak for itself, a chance at life. I think you may want to re-read my original post - while you commend me for being open-minded to PP helping women with gynecological purposes and contraception, you didn't really grasp my point. Stephanie Butler:December 19, 2013 at 5:33 pmok let me start this out by saying that I am a young mom (19 with a 2 year old), and I am an atheist (so don't come at me with religious insults.) I got pregnant at 17, my boyfriend and I got married when I was 4 months pregnant (not because the bible told us to but because we knew if we were married we would have a higher commitment to make things work.) We have been married 2.5 years now and are very happy. neither of us have a college education but we have our own place, are not on food stamps or any other assistance, and are raising a very happy healthy child. Babies are not as expensive as pro abortionists lead you to believe. I am a waitress and my husband is a delivery driver, we don't live in a mansion but we live comfortably enough. We could have taken the so called easy way out and aborted my amazing son but we didn't because I strongly believe that abortion is murder. When I had my first ultra sound that little boy had a heart beat, I heard it. How is that my body? I very distinctly saw a separate, living, tiny body growing inside of me. Not a parasite (we don't make parasites by a voluntary act) but a child, MY CHILD. And it breaks my heart to think that if I had not been informed of how alive my "fetus" was that he would not exist today. And my now husband could not have done anything to stop it. Men should have a say in this. The baby belongs to both parents not just the mother. Not all men are there for their children so if they want to have a say by all means let them! Let them take some responsibility for their child, let them step up. Women complain all the time about dead beat dads but when a man wants to have a say in whether or not their child is born suddenly he doesn't have that right? I don't understand. In the 2 years my son has been with me he has changed my life more than I ever knew possible, he truly is the most amazing little person I have ever met. He teaches me to be stronger every day and to smile because the little things don't matter and that hugs and kisses are what make a happy child not money or things. I do not judge those who have had abortions or will in the future, I feel sorry for them, because they do not know who they missed meeting in that child and they were led to believe that the baby inside of them isn't alive. My son moved in my womb, he reacted to my moods, he knew when his daddy was around by the sound of his voice, he was very alive, from the day we conceived him. Please, if you are considering abortion just think it though do some research, talk to other young moms. Babies are not as hard as you think and adoption is always an awesome option. there are so many people who cant have kids and its only 9 months that you have to carry the child. (pregnancy isn't as bad as its made out to be either) Sorry for being long winded but this is a subject I feel very passionate about and thought i could shed some light on as I would have been the typical abortion candidate. Anna Crase:December 19, 2013 at 11:16 pmWhat the fuck does their support of planned parenthood have to do with your dinner? Did they have a makeshift clinic in the lobby that left you witnessing a gynecological exam? Angel Tidwell:December 19, 2013 at 4:16 pmthis site needs an up and down voting "like" system. i'm always amazed by the trolls. Meagan Rice:December 19, 2013 at 4:29 pmredditize the world. Nicole Smith:December 19, 2013 at 3:25 pmBob is awesome. Lol Sandra Russell Kinzel:December 20, 2013 at 12:53 amI will eat at an Olive Garden now . I was disinclined to before I read this post, but Olive Garden is sounding pretty good now. Stephanie G Herring:December 19, 2013 at 9:19 pmSo you felt the need to post on their fb page that you don't support planned parenthood? I'm pretty sure that they don't care Robyn Sweeney:December 20, 2013 at 5:13 pmOnly 3% of planned parenthood services are abortions, 71% is birth control.
