    Planned Parenthood people are baby killers!!!!!!

    • Still drinking the Kool Aid, huh?

      • In California if you shoot a woman who is with child, you are charged with double homicide, because you killed a woman and her unborn child, so why is it not murder when a woman kills the unborn herself ? Hypocrites,
        You use abortion as a form of birth control. with that logic you should be able to kill the child anytime it becomes a burden to your life style. your spirit is empty, and your soul is polluted . sincerely , Pat

    • Kym, people are being falsely accused of murder here!

      1. Civility is valued by the moderator.
      2. Insulting other commenters will get you deleted. Do it too often and you will get banned.
      3. No slurs–racial, ethnic, gender, POLITICAL etc

      • Some people believe that abortion is murder and that the people who do that are baby killers. The term ‘Baby killer’ aimed at an organization not a particular person is a political stance that I allow.

        • A baby and a fetus are not the same thing, that is an objective fact. Had they wrote “fetus killers” that would be a different story.

          It was not aimed at the organization. It says “Planned Parenthood people” referring to people who support and use planned parenthood.

          And there can be no argument that the comment is not civil.

    An excellent endorsement. I would consider it if I was in his district. Women’s health care is very much threatened in our local Catholic dominated medical community. PP is an important resource.

  • A very important endorsement for me. I have a teenage daughter and I think planned Parenthood is great. The new generation has no empathy for the old religious taboos.. as it should be. See the recent Irish referendum if you have any doubts of the future. (Ireland= the most catholic country in the world)
    I hope someday the US will put the abortion question to a referendum (vote) and that would settle the question here as well.

    • Be careful what you wish for… As the last presidential election shows, there’s a lot of religious whackjobs out there still.

      • Just because you are against baby murder does not mean you are either religious or a “whackjob.” I consider those who support a woman’s right to kill her unborn child mentally unstable.

  • the socialist candidate from southern calif. my how things have changed in blue lake, which was a sawmill town until the sungnome types arrived after the mill workers left.

    • I like the old ways in a lot of ways also.. and I hate some of the new parts of life here. But things are always changing and it doesn’t do much good to sit there and gripe. He’s the better of the two imo

  • I loved the faith displayed in his ad that you can take our crime ridden, poorly maintained county, attract tourism to look at our natural wonders (not actually let them go to it and mess it up, you know, but just look) and create a reliable livelihood for locals. Tourists, even if there are enough of them who want to spend enough time with nature to leave their money, are put off by crime ridden parks and motels really fast.

  • What’s that old quote, kill one person you’re a murderer, kill a million and you’re a conqueror.

    Planned Parenthood provides many Services besides abortion, that are great for Women’s Health. But I’ll never understand the mindset whereas if some whack-job kills 10 kids at a school the entire nation meltdown and demands that fundamental constitutional rights are stripped from the people, whereas in the United States annually over 600,000 children are aborted and it’s touted by certain individuals as a right. Planned Parenthood has been caught doing some gruesome nasty shit, the people responsible for those actions should be held to account just like a police officer who murders someone for no good reason, they should be held to account. doesn’t mean all police officers are bad.

    Using abortion as a form of birth control or simply as a way out of dealing with personal responsibility is bad enough, but some people actually take pride in it and exercise it as some kind of right over their own body. I find that disgusting.

    • Veteran's friend

      You obviously have a bias in this argument if you believe that abortion is used by anyone as birth control.

    • Children are not aborted. Not a single child has even been aborted in human history. The term you are looking for is “fetus”.

      • If it lives, it is a baby. What is the difference that makes it not a baby if it dies? The changing the name does not change the reality. It is what it is.

  • Is that all he has going for him? So he supports ending a babies life if the mother doesn’t feel up to carrying it. What else do we want to do with out tax dollars? Get real…

  • These endorsements are a joke.
