Michele Bachmann’s Sex Clinics
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Mars) announces the latest far right fever swamp fantasy: the health care reform bill is going to allow the demonic Planned Parenthood to set up … I hope you’re sitting down … sex clinics in the schools of America! With free abortions for 13-year olds!
What’s worse than death panels? Sex clinics!
[Run around screaming…] Sex clinics! We’re doomed!
And as a matter of fact, the bill goes on to say what’s going to go on — comprehensive primary health services, physicals, treatment of minor acute medical conditions, referrals to follow-up for specialty care — is that abortion? Does that mean that someone’s 13 year-old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back and go home on the school bus that night? Mom and dad are never the wiser.
