Your Anne’s Carversville heart is breaking in two. The house, the land, the people that I love are voting to defund Planned Parenthood. My friends, gym mates, a date or two (most are from New York), my shopkeepers and fruit stand owners are committed to turning back the rights of American women, taking us back to the Fifties with Donna Reed in the kitchen, minding the kids.
For all who believe that I am exaggerating, you must get real. This IS the Republican plan.
I was horrified yesterday boarding the Philadelphia-based Planned Parenthood bus to Washington, when I opened my information packet to read that Mike Fitzpatrick, District 8 Republican for Bucks County is determined to defund Planned Parenthood.
I am registered now in District 1, led by pro Planned Parenthood representative Robert Brady.
District 8 has historical flip flop Democratic/Republican election results that reflect that divided nature of its soul. I fear that it’s my friends and neighbors who didn’t turn out to vote in November 2010, based on the numbers.
Defeat Republican War on Women Bucks County US Representative Mike Fitzpatrick
I give the women of Bucks County and America my word that I will work regularly to defeat Republican Mike Fitzpatrick in 2012. Hearing the utter lies that are told about Planned Parenthood, I will go local in my support of the organization.
