Legislating Hate: Jan Brewer Edition

When supra-animated Hayao Miyazaki villain turned self-loathing-female Governor of Arizona Jan Brewer signed a bill last week that bans the use of taxpayer money to fund Planned Parenthood, it was framed by conservatives as a triumph in the battle against abortion.

“Planned Parenthood’s abortion-centered business model does not need or deserve taxpayer dollars,” said Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-Colo.) in a statement for the Susan B. Anthony List, an advocacy group opposed to abortions.

Yes! Planned Parenthood’s “abortion-centered business model” has been sussed! See?

But who cares about facts and vital services for low-income people when you have the courage of your convictions?

  1. It seems like an interesting coincidence reading this today because just yesterday I helped a student with a paper about HB2281, the law that AZ passed last year that affects education (for example, not allowing teachers to teach English classes if they have ‘an accent’).

    But it’s no coincidence. Arizona is ALWAYS in the news for some idiotic, backwards, or racist thing that they’re doing. As Mr T would say, “I pity the fools.”

Do you love us or hate us?
