I was driving back to work after lunch and passed by the Planned Parenthood on Forest Park, which had a splattering of protesters out in front of the entrance.
As I sat at the red light I kept thinking how hard I’ve tried not to hate them.
I really have…hate isn’t all that productive, but…well, shit.
At this moment?
I really, really, really hate those people protesting in front of Planned Parenthood.
For the love of all that’s preventable, St. Louis tops the country in STD rates. Based on a CDC report, we lead the nation in sexually transmitted disease infections for gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. And women of color are the fastest growing group for new HIV infections.
So, I’m not going to lie. I hate those protesters who may make someone seeking information and protection turn away.
I hate them because they don't want someone to get tested today, get treatment or get the sex education they are hell bent on denying the masses.
My city and my fellow St. Louisans are paying a heavy price for the beliefs of a few sanctimonious assholes who really don't give a shit about the lives of women or their children.
These new STD statistics are the diseased based result of the war on choice.
And I really don’t understand how people so willing to harm thousands of living human beings can claim to be pro-life.
But a bitch has long suspected that to be the goal and so I hate…and then I get angry...and I reject this sorry assed reality they call a culture of life.
As Marvin said, this ain’t livin’.
