As I listened to a presentation by Planned Parenthood of Utah yesterday on the timeline of sex education in our country, I couldn’t help but think how backwards we have been going since the late 1800’s when sex education first started being publicly developed. Although I knew about the “trigger law” that Utah was debating in the Legislature, little did I know that while I was seeing this presentation HB 235 was introduced by Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clearfield, I learned later in the day, in which Utah targets Roe v. Wade.
Margaret Sanger must be turning in her grave.
The legislators who want this bill to pass continue to lie to the public as well. Curt Bramble, R-Provo, Utah’s Senate Majority Leader,is quoted as saying that
“Planned Parenthood has made it clear that they will do all they can to continue killing babies … that’s what abortions do,” he said. “That’s one where it’s kind of black and white. There’s not a lot of negotiating if you take the life of a child.”
In Utah, Planned Parenthood does not perform abortions. PP educates women on their choices and their right to choose abortion.
I like how Karrie Galloway, executive director of Planned Parenthood of Utah, puts it:
“We are so focused on the abortion issue that we don’t look at how to prevent abortion, we only want to ban it and it hasn’t addressed the needs of the people of Utah.”
Welcome to the state of Utah – and our country – and a resurgence of the dark ages. Instead of fixing and preventing things, we do things like create bans and restrictions which are just bandaids to deeper problems that won’t go away.
Shame on Utah. A women’s body is sacred. A woman has the right to choose for herself what to do with her body. Once again, men are taking the moral high ground to decide for women what they can decide for themselves. You can believe what you want, but you don’t have the right to tell me what I can do with my body or anything that has to do with it.
Here is a challenge to Utah Women:
We need to introduce a bill whereby all men who have fathered two or more children must have vasectomies! And if they wouldn’t do this willingly, they would face forced castration. Population control at its best.
