Orange County Supes Step Up For Life!!

From the AP:

OC ends Planned Parenthood contract over abortions

The Associated Press. 5:27 p.m. March 10, 2009

SANTA ANA, Calif. — The Orange County Board of Supervisors has voted to suspend a contract with Planned Parenthood to provide health education for thousands of teenagers because the nonprofit organization offers abortions.

Members of the public and the board argued passionately before the unanimous vote at Tuesday's meeting.


Planned Parenthood's curriculum includes contraception, abstinence and sexually transmitted diseases.


Local Planned Parenthood President Jon Dunn says the county's $292,000 education grant that funded the program did not go to abortions.


Dunn says the supervisor who put the item on the agenda, John Moorlach, was motivated by religious ideology and not concerned about health policies that benefit Orange County.

The foremost reason I support the pro-choice is woman’s rightful desire for control their bodies. Pregnancy can cause significant risk and damage on woman’s health and career. Do you think that there should be a double standard for healthy women and women with significant health problems when it comes to the government interference against abortion? I don’t think anyone can make the important decision for anyone else but herself.
