Planned Parenthood not at fault here

This is in regards to Ms. Judy Campbell’s Jan. 10 letter.

Granted abortion is a touchy subject to everyone, but who are you to rip Planned Parenthood down for their services? You can probably afford healthcare unlike the rest of us.

I’m 24 years old, I went to college for five years, I have a stable career that I love, yet I can’t afford health care, because of our country’s diluted system. Who are you to judge who goes in Planned Parenthood and what happens after?

Women should not be patronizing other women about their body. It’s your own, do what you want. I may be young but I know well enough to not criticize other women for their beliefs, especially if things go “unplanned.” That’s how I was raised.

These “donations” you talk about and “this is where our taxpaying money is going” makes hypocrites like you think you’re paying for something “evil” or “uncivilized” when in reality it could potentially be saving many lives. You say evil exists when men do nothing? Listen to your own words and do something to fix our government, there’s thousands of children waiting to be adopted, what about them? Who fights for them?

Stupid IS as stupid does. Who let our government get this way? My generation and many thereafter, is going to have to fix this mess.
