New York City’s new Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to provide “city sponsored” space to help open more Planned Parenthood clinics because so much of NYC is underserved. Forget the fact that 41% o NYC pregnancies end in abortion. Apparently, that’s not enough for Mayor de Blasio.
As if that weren’t bad enough, he also wants to eliminate pro-life pregnancy centers. Why? Because they’re “shams.” He’s planning on introducing legislation to wipe them out, or at least make it harder for them to operate.
Do you think the new Mayor has ever been inside a pro-life center and talked to them to actually SEE what they do firsthand? It’s doubtful considering the fact that he calls them a “sham” and says they do not offer “legitimate healthcare.” So pre and post-abortion counseling is not considered “legitimate healthcare?” Isn’t the mental health and well-being of a woman also a form of healthcare?
Planned Parenthood is quick to provide abortive options, but do they also offer grief counseling to women who may need it afterward? Many women suffer from depression and other post-partum issues. Crisis pregnancy centers offer these services. And while they may not offer abortions, they do explain ALL the options so a woman can make the best choice herself.
Mayor de Blasio’s stance on this issue is frightening. Even more frightening is the fact that he was just elected with a 73% vote! He openly says he’s a “democrat socialist.” He violated travel bans to communist countries when it was illegal. He honeymooned, illegally, in Cuba and supported communist causes in Nicaragua. This is who NYC residents relate to and chose to represent them and their ideals.
