To all of the Feminist and Planned Parenthood fans, what happened to being pro-woman? You remember, the fight for women’s equality? Oh, that’s right…they only support women who are pro-choice.
Planned Parenthood activists protested the ceremony honoring Iowa’s first female governor Kim Reynolds just because she’s pro-life.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) and Sen. Joni Ernst (R) will be inducted into the Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame — and Planned Parenthood activists plan to be there to protest.
According to the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women, four women are inducted each year into the state’s Women’s Hall of Fame, “paying tribute to them and setting them forth as role models for others.”
Reynolds, formerly the state’s lieutenant governor, became the first female governor of Iowa earlier this year when her predecessor, former Gov. Terry Branstad (R), was appointed as the United States Ambassador to China.
Ernst was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2014. She is Iowa’s first female U.S. senator — and the first female combat veteran to serve in the Senate.
The two women will be inducted into the Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame in a Saturday ceremony. The late Jane Boyd, an Iowa civil rights leader, and Des Moines Councilwoman Christine Hensley will also be inducted.
A coalition of left-leaning organizations — including Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa — are planning to protest the inclusion of Reynolds and Ernst in the event. In a Facebook post, organizers of the protest described Reynolds and Ernst as “the enemies of Iowa women.”
In reality, Planned Parenthood is the enemy to women. According to the CDC from 2008 to 2012, there was 36 women who have died as a result from a legal abortion. Not only that, but nearly half of the babies that Planned Parenthood kills are female. So much for the “we support women” mantra.
Planned Parenthood is apparently sore that Reynolds supports defunding the abortion business. She doesn’t want Iowa linked to a company that aborts baby girls. Because she hates women. Or something.
To say you’re pro-woman and promote abortion is to denigrate one of the privileges of being a woman: the glory and honor of carrying a child inside her body. Furthermore, Reynolds and Ernst are the real pro-women advocates. They serve and protect females of any age, even in the womb.
