The House voted to defund Planned Parenthood in Virginia Tuesday despite women’s rights advocates protesting on the Capitol grounds and the House chamber, reports 13NEWS NOW..

From 13NEWS NOW:

On a 60-33 party-line vote, the House approved HB 2264, which would cut off federal Title X funding for Planned Parenthood and any other groups that perform abortions in Virginia. Without the funding, the organization says it would have to shut its five clinics in the state.

About a dozen protesters lined the sidewalk at Capitol Square on Tuesday morning as legislators walked from the General Assembly Building to the state Capitol. They held signs declaring “I Stand with Planned Parenthood” and “Stop the War on Virginia Women.”

Later, wearing T-shirts that spelled out “We are watching,” the demonstrators sat in the first row of the gallery overlooking the House floor to urge delegates to vote against the bill. The protesters represented such groups as Progress Virginia, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, the Virginia Latina Advocacy Network, the Virginia Civic Engagement Table and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia.

The defunding effort — which is coming on multiple fronts — is also part of a growing debate about repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act created during former president Barack Obama’s administration, reports CBS News.

    Cave n!@@ers are the enemy of humanity. These neanderthal apes are mentally dead, spiritually dead and soon to be physically dead. Cave ni@@er on cave n!@@er carnage is flourishing in this country. All we here is this racist black on black mantra. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

    You want to make choices on what you can do with your body? Stop being Ho’s.

    According to the Institute’s state-by-state study of abortion rates among teens, black teenagers between 15 and 19 years old have an abortion rate of 41 per 1,000 women, more than twice the national average of 18 per 1,000. In comparison, white teenagers have an abortion rate of 10 per 1,000 women, which means that African-American teenagers are having abortions at a rate that is about four times higher than that of their white counterparts.

  3. Then we have Kellyann trying to justify Trump’s many many many lies…..saying something to the affect that what he doesn’t lie about out weighs the lies he tells. SMDH!! And….we tell our kids not to lie!!! Again…SMDH!! Trump, Spicer, and Kellyann are all outright liars!!

    As women in this country and especially in VA, your state is next, really need to take a stand on this. So many women, especially poor (any race) facing hard decisions will have nearly no where to go for medical care or advice. This should be a priority, we should not have white men and stupid white women making decisions for our bodies. This is a disgrace and we shouldn’t take it laying down. We need to fight to keep our rights.

      The only advice and service PP offers is abortion. Don’t believe me? Call your local office and try to set up an appointment for pre-natal care. Then you drag your uneducated azz back in here an apologize publically for your lies. I’ll wait.

  5. This is just the start of these Right Wing NUTS taking away women’s right. And, idiots like Kellyanne talking about she doesn’t know why women are protesting!! We need to protest all the ‘D’ Viagra type commercials on TV 24/7. Why are men being in control of what women do with their bodies? Plus so many Christians are nothing but walking HYPOCRITES!!

  6. Bitch, never heard of the women. She must be white. That’s something a white women would say. If she’s not white she’s a damn lie. She’s not in my chicle. Her opinions mean nothing to me. Nxt question

  7. “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” “[Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are] human weeds … a deadweight of human waste … [Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a] menace to the race.” “Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.” “[N]egroes present the great problem of the South.” “Give dysgenic groups [people with “bad genes”] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.” “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” “[Blacks] are human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” ~ Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood ~

    Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms, breast biopsies or provide pre-natal care. Why are most PP centers located in minority neighborhoods?

    • Oh well. Once again s bunch of old white men and some women are telling women what we can do with our bodies. We’re going back to the 50s & 60s, when women didn’t have any rights. We didn’t have civil rights, voting rights, or human rights. To hell with all these fake ass politicians. Especially that person in the WH. The fish rots at the head; (trump and company).

      • So, you are okay with Margaret Sanger calling black folk weeds and need to be exterminated? My goodness, how much democrat Kool-Aid have you drank?
