Oklahoma GOP Attacks Planned Parenthood by Taking Food Away From Babies

Sick, sick, sick

A new front has opened up in the right wing’s deranged vendetta against Planned Parenthood.

Republicans in Oklahoma are now taking food out of the mouths of babies.

Unbelievably, something like that occurred last week in the Oklahoma House. Rep. Jason Murphey, R-Guthrie, moved to amend a senior nutrition bill so that it prohibits independent contractors from distributing federal funds for a program that feeds mothers, babies and small children.

Why would Murphey do such a thing? Because Planned Parenthood of Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma, based in Tulsa, is among the nine independent contractors that administer the federal Women, Infants and Children feeding program.

Debate over the amendment made it clear Planned Parenthood was the target, observers say. Planned Parenthood has become a favorite target of the right wing lately over the abortion issue, even though Planned Parenthood in Tulsa doesn’t perform abortions.

Proving once again that if you want a Republican to care about you, remain a fetus.
