Here we go again. The Orange County Board of Supervisors has suspended Planned Parenthood’s funding, terminating a contract that PP had to provide health and sex education for thousands of teens because they also provide abortions.
Never mind the fact that this funding was for education programs and none of it was ever spent on abortion service. Never mind the fact that accurate, comprehensive sex education actually reduces the rate of teen pregnancy (and therefore, reduces the abortion rate). And never mind that Planned Parenthood has years of experience providing this education- experience that a newer organization simply can’t match. None of that counts because an ideology about abortion is more important than actually doing something about it.
It’s enough to make me scream. Really.
