Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina has circumnavigated the Republicans' budget maneuver that cut their state funding for family planning. See this good N&O story.
Thanks to a federal government that still cares about women's reproductive rights, PPCNC will be able to keep its Durham clinic open and provide care for even more women than before.
Title X family planning money, originally supported by good Republicans (remember them?), is under the gun though, which is all the more reason to make sure it's not a Mitt White House come January 2013.
What a hypocrite! Mitt asked for Planned Parenthood's endorsement when he ran for governor in MA, and now he says he wants to get rid of them and Title X, too.
Back to the Dark Ages, or at least the 1950s.
BlueNC is dedicated to freedom and fairness for the people of North Carolina. If you share that vision, welcome. If your intention is to disrupt our efforts, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
