The shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado, Springs killed three and injured police officers and civilians. We worry so much about terror attacks happening like the one in Paris though we don't realize that it's not always foreigners causing terror. The man, Robert Dear, motive is thought to be his views against abortions. CNN speculated what his motive was but it will be later speculated on as he will be in court in the next day or two. If Robert Dear was so strongly pro life, then why did he just murder innocent people?  
Many people remarked that it was a crime against women's health, I understand their support but it's not only an attack on women's health it's an attack on everyone's health.Planned Parenthood provides services for men and women, here is a link to all provided services Sexual Health Topics - Planned ParenthoodPlanned Parenthood is the nation’s leading provider and advocate of high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and young people, as well as the nation’s largest provider of sex education.  With such a horrific event and those are the words of support? It makes you understand why so many people believe that Planned Parenthood is just for woman. Maybe we need to start looking at Planned Parenthood differently and educating the public on what it actually does. No one should ever be injured or killed for working, or being in a Planned Parenthood.

I disagree with taking out abortions but Donald Trump is on the right track of realizing it is a good thing. Donald Trump has some far out ideas but the fact that he agrees Planned Parenthood does good things is reassuring that not every Republican wants to shut down Planned Parenthood. Maybe there is a way to find middle ground with politicians instead of shutting down the government. I mean it's ridiculous to  shut down the entire government just to defund Planned Parenthood in my opinion.

I think Bernie Sanders is addressing Planned Parenthood in the correct way and understanding the video of selling fetus's is extreme. I think the video is unclear and confusing.

  In 1965, when abortion was still illegal nationwide except in cases of life endangerment, at least 193 women died from illegal abortions, and illegal abortion accounted for nearly 17 percent of all deaths due to pregnancy and childbirth in that year (Gold, 1990; NCHS, 1967).

   In 1973, the risk of dying from an abortion was 3.4 deaths per 100,000 legal abortions. This rate fell to 1.3 by 1977 (Gold, 1990). Today, the risk of death associated with abortion increases with the length of pregnancy, from one death for every one million vacuum aspiration abortions at eight or fewer weeks to 8.9 deaths after 20 weeks’ gestation

Someone who wants to get an abortion will get one if they are desperate. There used to be   “back alley butchers” who were motivated by money alone and performed unsafe, medically incompetent abortions that left many women dead or injured. Wouldn't it be better to have safe abortions and have people live? People are so against abortions but are they willing to let young woman die because they didn't have access to other options?

One of the biggest issues with Planned Parenthood is many think all it does is abortions. It's a big topic for presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton said in an interview  "What I am troubled by are the misleading, inaccurate allegations about them that we heard from Republicans at their debate. This is really an attack on Planned Parenthood, which provides a lot of health services, from cancer screenings , to contraceptive services, to so many other of the needs women have." Hillary supports Planned Parenthood because she understands what other services they provide. Some say it's just because she is a woman, though many of the presidential candidates are men. Hillary might possible understand some of the scary things woman are faced with dealing with their health. Some woman are against it like Carly Fiorina and many of the presidential men candidates are as well. President Obama made a video supporting Planned Parenthood. Saying he understands the importance for woman to be able to make their own choice. You can watch the full video here  President Obama Stands With Planned Parenthood - Planned Parenthood Action Fund

Planned Parenthood provides health care services to men and woman for free. Planned Parenthood has come under a lot of criticism because they provide abortions as one of there health care services. Most people don't know all the other great things they provide and do, such as birth control, information on sexuality and std's. Planned Parenthood gives the patients information and lets them choose what they would want, they never persuade or force anyone to do anything. They also keep your records private and even if you are underage you still have privacy from your parents. This blog will be supporting Planned Parenthood and disproving arguments that are false. Though everyone is allowed there own opinion and I welcome feedback.
