Are Virginia’s New Abortion Limits the Worst Yet?
I don’t even know what to say anymore.
I read yesterday that Kansas courts are requiring that they continue to fund Planned Parenthood in the area. I may not live there anymore, but this is really important. When I was seventeen my mom asked if I needed to be on birth control and when I said yes, she took me to Planned Parenthood. My friend and I dragged a friend of ours to their office repeatedly during our senior year of high school when she was making really self-destructive decisions. Not for an abortion like these people seem to think, but for birth control and pregnancy tests. If they stop funding Planned Parenthood in the area, so many people are going to be screwed. Kansas is a huge state. You can drive five hours and still be in Kansas. So shutting down any Planned Parenthoods in Kansas and Missouri is a problem. Hopefully Virginia’s new laws will get struck down like they did in Kansas.
My December in Virginia looked like this.
