Separation of Church & State - the reality of the Planned Parenthood budget debate
In 1916, Maragaret Sanger found staunch opposition to “birth control” from the Catholic Church. She stood up it’s power and won.
Now in 2011, we are facing a similar situation. The Church doesn’t have the power it did in 1916. Now, so-called Christian Conservatives are working deny both men and women free-will thru legislating morality.
Don’t let emotions cloud the issue. It is clear, this is a test of the Constitution. If all faiths and ideologies are to co-exist in our Country, sexual freedom is the barometer.

In New York, where Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger in 1916, the abortion rate is among the highest in the United States: 40 percent of all pregnancies against 20 percent nationwide, according to New York City’s health department.
The statistics, and what they imply, serve to fuel both sides of the debate, prompting Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York to call for efforts to reduce the number of abortions in the city, which has averaged 90,000 a year. On the other side, feminist groups stand firm against any curbs on the city’s abortion-rights law, the most lenient in the United States.
