Letter: No need for Planned Parenthood

It amazes me that the people who wrote in about the Planned Parenthood funding cut failed to mention the over $13,000 raised after this announcement. By my accounting their net gain was in excess of $11,500.

Therefore, how many of these contributors would have given without our county commissioners’ decision? Government (taxpayer) dollars are not allowed to go to a political organization. Planned Parenthood chose to become political.

Also in their infinite wisdom, they also failed to mention that everyone has access to Obamacare. There is no longer a need for Planned Parenthood. Every man, woman and child is eligible.

People need to take responsibility for their actions and stop complaining because they didn’t get their way.
