Indiana May Completely Unfund Planned Parenthood

Many sites covered all the gory details of this bill last week, including the ban on abortions after 20 weeks and the requirement that all women seeking abortion counseling be told that life begins at conception.  For no extra charge, it’s rumored Mitch Daniels himself will come to abortion clinics and scream “DIRTY STRUMPET BABY KILLER!” in the face of any woman who even thinks about abortion as anything but a mortal sin.

That’s sarcasm, but I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility.

It looks as though this bill will pass, and there’s no changing Mitch’s mind. (Also sarcasm: how’s that social issues truce working for you, Guv’ner?) I thought instead of adding to the noise, I’d just give you a way to help.  Want to make sure Indiana women, especially minority and lower income women, can continue to receive the vital reproductive health care they need other than at the Bell Flower STD clinicDonate here.
