US Tax Payer Money used to Harass Women story Verified by Planned Parenthood

I posted yesterday on US taxpayer money being used to harass women seeking Planned Parenthood services. I was unsure how true the story was and went so far as to ask snopes (no reply yet), but today I received verification from Planned Parenthood that the story is indeed absolutely true.

See the post from yesterday to read the story. It's really a frightening account of how literally crazy religious fundamentalists can be on this issue and how our taxes (that you just paid a few weeks ago) are being used to fund this stalking and terrorist-like behavior. $60 million dollars in government grant money has gone to these groups while they continue to tell us there just isn't enough money to fund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Head Start, Medicaid and Medicare, Social Security, our schools, Upward Bound, job training, housing support, food stamps, school lunches, the list goes on and on.... They are disgusting!

It's time to fight back! Tell your legislators that you will not stand for your money being used to fund this despicable behavior.

A bill has just been introduced in Congress to stop the fraudulent practices of fake clinics, but it desperately needs more support.

Tell your representative to take a stand: anti-choice extremists must not get away with this any longer! Go to: http://www.ppaction.org/campaign/fakeclinics
