Just a short little post today, but I wanted to get this thought out.
I find it interesting that Planned Parenthood can afford to spend 1.4 million dollars on political ads, but in February they were complaining about losing out on funding from Susan G Komen since it would deny many women access to health care.
Now if making sure those women, especially poor women, had health care, would it not make more sense to use the 1.4 million dollars on treatment and services for these woman instead of pursuing political goals? Even half of the money saved would have been more than what Susan G Komen was going to withhold.
There is no real reason for this organization to be lobbying for political support, unless they had something to gain from it. What does Planned Parenthood have to gain by Obama winning another term as president? How much federal funding do they receive where they can afford to spend this much trying to ensure that they keep the funding?
