Last week in the world of politics, it was all about the threat to shutdown the government, a potentially lethal job-killing move by Republicans to get sugar-coating on some of the behind-the-scenes dealmaking that commoners like us aren’t privy to.  What is known is that funding of Planned Parenthood was a major sticking point for Republicans.

Last week Senator John Kyl made an outrageous claim that 90% of Planned Parenthood’s funds go towards providing abortions.  This false claim drew the attention of a lot of folks, including Stephen Colbert, who broke character when trying to make sense of the remarks of Kyl.  Thankfully, the threat to shut down the government was just a bunch of posturing, too.  I can not understand, though, how opponents of abortion can be opponents of Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides information on sexual health and contraceptives to young women all across the country... thus preventing abortions.

Positively Yours,
