Yawn.

Arkansas Senate votes to defund Planned Parenthood and sex education
Quote :
Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood does not currently receive any state funding for abortion care or family planning services, bill sponsor Republican state Rep. Gary Stubblefield and other supporters argue that it will prevent taxpayer money from paying for abortions. In reality, the only loser under the new measure is the state’s sex education program. And, of course, Arkansas students.
Quote :
Arkansas currently has the third-highest rate of teen pregnancy in the country and ranks 21st in the nation for reported (that number is an approximation, as not all infections are reported and diagnosed) STIs among teens.

Thank you Republican Taliban. We defeated you in Afghanistan only to have a home grown cell pop up in Washington.

Will cutting off the hands of thieves be next? How about intentionally paralyzing drunk drivers? Throwing acid in the faces of girls who go to school?

Because ignorance is a big prerequisite for faith.

The drama continues here as well. There was to be a hearing Thursday, but an injunction has been granted to keep our only abortion clinic open.
We defeated the personhood amendment but then they made a law and signed it in that we couldn't vote on.
Now the hospitals are refusing to process the doctors requests for privilege so that the clinic can conform to the law. Mad

Sadly, it will probably take some Tea Party Senator's daughter dying from a coat hanger abortion before the light of reason again shines.
