Half of Conservatives Are Now Against Breast Cancer Screenings
If you weren’t yet sure whether Republicans had gone totally insane when it comes to issues of women’s health and issues of supporting life in general, this ought to convince you: A Daily Kos-Public Policy Polling survey found that 51 percent of conservatives have an unfavorable opinion of Planned Parenthood’s breast cancer screenings. Well, isn’t that just great? Yeah, screw those people with cancer—they’re probably only there to get abortions anyway. Terrific attitude. Anyway, there’s the 25 percent who are “not sure” what their opinion is, and finally, rest assured, 25 percent of conservatives still have a favorable opinion of Planned Parenthood offering screenings. Nice to know a quarter of those on the Right are still sane enough to recognize that cancer screenings are good, no matter where they come from.
