Hillary Clinton is entering the current political fray regarding Planned Parenthood — coming down solidly on the side of the family planning and reproductive rights organization, and against the push by Republican presidential candidates and an anti-abortion group to take it down.

“If this feels like a full-on assault on women’s health — that’s because it is,” Clinton said in a video posted by her campaign Monday. “When politicians talk about ‘defunding Planned Parenthood,’ they’re talking about blocking millions of women, men, and young people from life-saving preventive care: cancer screenings, breast exams, birth control. They’re talking about cutting people off from the health care provider they know and trust.”

Clinton also directly criticized three Republican presidential candidates by name: Jeb Bush, Rick Perry, and Scott Walker, for seeking to shut down access to legal abortion.

“When they attack women’s health, they attack America’s health. And it’s wrong, and we’re not going to let them get away with it. We’re not going back — we’re going to fight back. I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood. I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions. I hope you will join me.”

The Republican party seems to be having trouble trying to be the Christian Taliban and hating on LGBT people when they’ve got Rep. Madison Cawthorn in their ranks. His presence is making it so much harder for them to suppress their inner self-loathing--homosexuality and moral hypocrisy.

We all know politicians secretly love illicit drugs as much as taking bribes or paying off strippers they knocked up, so you have to give Cawthorn some credit for being honest. However, any creditability as a human he might have goes out the window when you consider his hatred and policies toward the LGBT community while, hypocritically enough, he engages in homosexual acts himself.
