HIM: Did you hear about this abortion doctor they found guilty of murder? Now more than ever congress should push for removing funding for Planned Parenthood.
ME: Planned Parenthood uses the tax money they get to fund women's health works such as cancer screenings and providing medication to regulate menstruation and to assure other vital health concerns for poor and middle class women.
HIM: They also perform abortions.
ME: Not with government money.
HIM: There's no way to seperate the money.
ME: Actually there is, and abortion is legal, so Planned Parenthood is doing nothing illegal.
HIM: It doesn't matter if it's not illegal, it's our tax money, and I don't want it going to pay for abortions.
ME: It's not, but even if it was, I don't want my money going to pay for drone attacks, wars, separating Mexican families, incarcerating people for marijuana possession, etc. But that's not how government funding works.
HIM: At such a time PP cleans up its act and stops promoting abortion and stops advising people how to get away with illegal late term abortions maybe then taxpayers wouldn't mind giving them money again.(Actual quote)
ME: So what you're saying is that the government should stop giving them money to save women's lives until they stop doing something that's currently legal and that they already don't use government money to do so that you'll feel better about giving them money to continue the good work that saves women's lives?
ME: Well, I think we should stop paying the police to arrest murderers until they stop joining the policeman's benevolent society.
HIM: That doesn't make any sense.
ME: Why not? Is it because what they do privately is none of my business so long as it's legal it's their right as Americans, and because we all benefit by using government money to pay for the good services they provide?
