New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s veto of a bill that included funding for Planned Parenthood has withstood a challenge from Democrats in the state senate.
The veto deprived the state’s leading abortion provider of money that is essential to its continued operation.
The bill in question was a supplemental spending bill for “Women’s Health and Family Planning Services.” It was set to distribute $7,453,000 to 58 abortion businesses throughout the state. Of these facilities, 29 are run by Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortion services in the state and the nation.
The Governor insisted that prescription drug coverage was more important than funding other people's sex lives.
Abortion supporters are hoping to find funding elsewhere, such as the Department of Corrections. Yup -- don't lock the perverts up! Instead facilitate their continued sexual abuse of underage girls.
I found this interesting:
Sen. Donald Norcross, D-Camden, has suggested selling the state’s box seats at the Meadowlands sports arena in order to restore the funding.
What the hell does the State of New Jersey need with box seats at a sports arena? How about spending that money on, say, after-school sports programs for kids?
Supporters of the bill are quick to point out all of the women’s health services provided by this bill, including breast exams, pap smears, ... and STD testing.
And are there no other locations in the entire state of New Jersey where women can get these services? If not, BUILD THEM. Women should have better options for reproductive health care than places that see them as stray animals that need to be chemically spayed.
When the veto override failed, Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey claimed that this loss of funds was already forcing them to close one clinic, the South Jersey Women’s Center, located in a converted funeral home at 1044 Haddonfield Road in Cherry Hill.
What more appropriate setting for an abortion mill.
Because of New Jersey’s lax abortion laws and the southern location of the Cherry Hill clinics, they are a magnet for out-of-state women seeking late term abortions, and minors seeking abortions without parental consent or notification. Claire Howson of 40 Days For Life frequently sees cars from Delaware and Virginia at the clinic. “I’ve even seen a school bus drop off teenage girls, and girls still in their Catholic school uniforms,” she said.
Does New Jersey really need to spend tax money luring underage girls in from out of state so that their parents can be kept from finding out they're risking their futures -- or are being subjected to repeated statutory rape?
Maybe now New Jersey will start to move away from the "dose 'em with hormones, scrape 'em out and send them back to their abusers" mindset that holds that sexual abuse of underage girls is fine, as long as you get rid of the evidence.
