This is like if Henry Ford's motor company, with the full financial and political support of Democrats, spent their entire century long history privately and occasionally publically defending his anti-semitism only to suddenly change very very recently (literally last year) because the general public just wised up to it as a result of them sharing his quotes through modern technology. The company would need to pay, and pay hard. They would need to be legally bankrupted, or have the entire board sacked and completely new individuals brought in. An apology wouldn't be enough. Unlike Planned Parenthood, that company spend the last 60-70 years publically opposing it's founder's wanton Antisemitism and not making excuses for it, while at the same time acknowledging and celebrating his legacy and achievement in automotive history specifically.
People who frame this solely on "Pro-life" VS "Pro-Choice" don't understand the subtleties of the current debate.
The Democrats gave NO OTHER OPTION but to kill Roe VS Wade in order to bankrupt an organisation the clearly deserves it, and if it was decided solely by the Stock Market and investors, it would already have happened. They've give no other option for justice to occur against Planned Parenthood for its lifelong defence of a racist white supremacist and it's history of selling body parts to the highest bidder.
What they did was far far worse than Elizabeth Holmes.
More unhinged talking points that I'm sure you got from "the local news" and definitely not some weirdo rightwing podcaster or youtuber.
@SpecialOlympian, last year they admitted the organisation spent most of its existence defending a White Supremacist Eugenicist and enacting her racist policies against your cultural group. Why do you NOT believe they should be killed off and at the minimum at least be replaced with a different provider?
Who are "they"? What are you even going on about? Why, of all people, are you comparing Margaret Sanger to Elizabeth Holmes? The fuck are you on right now?
Like I've heard the stupid "Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist" argument before from the freaks who put up the genocide abortion wall on my college campus. I don't give a shit, her views on perfecting the human race through eugenics weren't even radical for the time, and none of that changes the fact that reproductive health services (in addition to the many other services Planned Parenthood provides) should be free and easily accessible to everyone.
You seriously think the purpose of Planned Parenthood for decades after her death was to promote and defend Sanger's legacy? And not, you know, provide health services? A woman most people don't even know the name of? Where in the fuck are you getting all of this moronic drivel from? (We know it's your local news, the same station that did the "Spermjackers on the Loose" special.)
