After repeatedly rejecting calls to include alternate views in his Task Force on Abortion, Governor Matt Blunt of Missouri threw down the gauntlet: “nothing is stopping Planned Parenthood from forming their own group.”
This will probably be the only advice we ever take from Governor Blunt (wink).
Gov. Blunt has gathered 14 extremists to spend months pretending to ‘study’ abortion. Let’s show Blunt Trauma we can get 10 times that number of people to form a REAL Task Force to Protect Women’s Health and Lives in Missouri.
Working together we can gather thousands of Missourians who have more knowledge, expertise and sense to protect women’s health than Governor Blunt will ever have!
Let’s not lose sight of what the anti-choice forces are working towards with their sorta task force. A similar group in South Dakota launched an abortion ban in law that South Dakota voters ultimately revoked. If Governor Blunt is serious about reducing the need for abortion, we must put Prevention First and focus on reducing unintended pregnancies through comprehensive sex education and increased access to contraception and other family planning services. Unfortunately, Governor Blunt seems to believe that restricting access will reduce the need for safe abortion care.
