I Stand with Planned Parenthood and HRC








One of the real true things about me is my support of the health care access of every person in this country. Respecting all bodies, of whatever walk of life, as equally dignified and deserving of care, seems like a no-brainer to me. Understanding that human beings are sexual beings, and that their reproductive health is not some freakish "extra" thing, but central to their ability to control their economic fate--by making family-planning choices--is essential to understanding how to stem poverty and make healthy families the center of a thriving economy. Hillary Clinton has been a great proponent of women and children's health for as long as I have known of her. She supports the idea that the health of families is crucial to the health of our nation.

Mike Huckabee is a bone-ignorant culture warrior and wouldn't grasp why any woman sees terminating a pregnancy as relative to her own health, even while he easily excuses why a young male sees fit to sexually violate his sisters or their companions.

I know who would dominate in a debate on this subject. But Mike Huckabee will not get the nomination of his party, not least because he is more fit to be a Twitter troll than a president.

Also, I would, grammatically speaking, also like to end the destruction of Planned Parenthood! Yeah! Let's stop trying to end an organization that does a lot for regular people!

There is absolutely zero ideological daylight between Mike Huckabee and Abū Bakr al-Baghdādi. They are the most toxic form of crusading theocrats...
