On a stage full of insane men, John Kasich can sometimes seem like the moderate and sensible choice for a Republican who is not a fan of the extreme Tea-Party dominated party that was once the GOP. Kasich may seem moderate by comparison, but make no mistake, Kasich is just as evil as the rest of them.
Over the weekend, Ohio Governor Kasich signed a bill which defunded the women’s health organization Planned Parenthood in his state, stripping all state and some federal funding for the clinics.
Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards had this to say about the Governors actions:
“John Kasich is proudly eliminating care for expectant mothers and newborns; he is leaving thousands without vital STD and HIV testing, slashing a program to fight domestic violence, and cutting access to essential, basic health care. It’s clear Kasich has no regard for women’s health or lives, and will stop at nothing to block health care for the tens of thousands of Ohioans who rely on Planned Parenthood.”
That’s right. $1.3 million dollars of state grants which were to be allocated for HIV testing, cancer screenings, and other vital programs has been ripped away by the candidate you may think is “pretty ok.”
We won’t be making that mistake again and neither should you.
