In this CNN article, a woman laments that "Trumpcare" would cut funding for Planned Parenthood, forcing her to instead go to inefficient clinics that require weeks and weeks of waiting for an appointment, followed by hours and hours of more waiting in waiting rooms.

It seems the thought never occurred to this woman or the journalist who wrote this story that if Obamacare would've functioned, there wouldn't need to be Planned Parenthoods in the first place, people would just be able to go to clinics with reasonable wait times. If you ask me, complaining that Trumpcare would cut funding to Planned Parenthood, forcing you to use the awful services implemented by Obamacare, is a pretty strange way of arguing to stay on Obamacare.

The article is so dishonest. Start with the headline - she doesn't need to go to Mexico for "birth control", among other things there's a WalMart in El Centro with incredibly cheap birth control.

Timely access to a doctor is different, so here's another lie: "community health centers can't easily absorb the nearly 5 million patients who visit 600 Planned Parenthood clinics annually". Ok, who is talking about closing 600 PP clinics? Federal funding is a fraction of PP's budget, perhaps some clinics would close but nowhere near 600.... AND they spend 10's of millions on political campaigns yearly which they could redirect to care, if that's truly their priority.

Also it should be pointed out that Planned Parenthood is a "non profit" and historically such as with the whole Meals on Wheels situation it has been proved that when trump cuts federal funding their donations increase. Meals on Wheels was helped GREATLY by the cuts, I just guess the majority (tax payers) don't really want free abortions, and those who do aren't the type to donate. Hence they want it for Free.

Wouldn't it be awesome if Trump care actually made a bunch of abortion loving feminists move to Mexico? That would be so fucking awesome. I'd celebrate by getting tore up and passing out in the hot sun.
