They’re right (in a way), what they do with their body is none of my business (even if they should be ashamed of themselves at the very least but you know what REALLY irks me? My tax money going toward an organization like Planned Parenthood.
EVEN IF the tax money isn’t used for abortions and they raise funds for that garbage it’s still going to support a system that doesn’t just provide the service, but they WANT TO provide the service.

As Written and Reported By Bill McMorris for the Free Beacon:
Planned Parenthood will continue to receive hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in the new spending agreement, despite Republican pledges to defund the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Taxpayers sent $543.7 million to Planned Parenthood last year, down from $554.6 million in 2016, and government funding accounted for about 40 percent of its $1.46 billion revenue stream, according to its annual report. Private contributions to the group have skyrocketed in recent years as it collected $532.7 million in donations in 2017, an $87 million increase from the year before.
The latest round of negotiations angered pro-life activists. March for Life Action’s Tom McClusky said the deal points to a “broken process,” in which government spending proceeds under continuing resolutions, rather than passing a federal budget……..
