Someone should explain something to this actress, or suggest she use some of the money she makes acting and go back to school.
Defunding Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with "stripping away rights".
What Planned Parenthood does is perform abortions. If Planned Parenthood was defunded and they could no longer perform abortions, there are still places in this country to get an abortion. DOH!
And if she's talkng about the other health care services women go to Planned Parenthood for, suprise Kerry! There are hospitals, doctors, and clinics who perform these health care services EVERY DAY! See what a little education can do?
What I guess she was trying to say, and saying it in the same manner as our president does, to make it look like Obama really gives two flying craps if women have to pay for their own birth control, is that she believes, as Obama does, that our forefathers listed "FREE healthcare" as a right.
Funny, the only thing I remember in the Declaration of Independence are our God-given rights, you know, Kerry, like Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Oh, and little miss hollywood, the Bill of RIGHTS? That came in 1791, and NOWHERE does it say, the RIGHT TO FREE ABORTIONS.
Message to Kerry Washington: "Stick to acting, okay?" No one's stripping away rights. Only God can do that. Our Founding Fathers fixed it so that someone like your hero president, could NOT take away our Freedom of Speech, Religion, or our right to bear arms. Got it?
From the article:Kerry Washington, who stars in ABCâ€™s new political primetime drama, â€œScandal,â€ went on MSNBCâ€™s â€œMelissa Harris-Perryâ€ show on Saturday and denigrated Republicans for engaging in â€œlegislative violence against women.â€
Washington, who campaigned for President Barack Obama in 2008 and whom Obama appointed to the Presidentâ€™s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, said â€œitâ€™s shockingâ€ what Republicans are supposedly doing to women. She said â€œweâ€™re supposed to be moving forward and have more equalityâ€ and not to a place of â€œstripping away our rights as women.â€
