Rachel Maddow had a great segment last night on how batshit crazy the Republican party has become over the last thirty years when it comes to reproductive rights and family planning.
Example Numero Uno? When Papa Bush was UN Ambassador, he sent a letter to the director of Planned Parenthood at the time, Alan Guttmacher, congratulating Planned Parenthood on the issuance of an eight cent “family planning” stamp, and stating he was “deeply appreciative of the dedication it symbolizes.”
Forty years later, George H.W. Bush has thrown his support behind Mitt “We’re gonna get rid of Planned Parenthood” Romney.
We’re going back in time, folks.
