I’m going to take a short break from my regular posts to talk about something important to me. As some of you might know, Susan G. Komen decided to cut its funding from Planned Parenthood. I know, this is controversial, but hear me out.
We may not all agree on abortion, but I think we can all agree that there’s needs to be less unplanned pregnancies and that all women (and men!) deserve access to affordable healthcare. Planned Parenthood annually provides contraception to over 2.2 million patients and provides over 770,000 pap tests, nearly 750,000 breast exams, and more than 4 million tests for STDs, including HIV tests. If you haven’t received services from Planned Parenthood, most likely someone you know and care about has.
Thanks for reading this non-cartoon post and I promise not to tell you who to vote for. Well, unless I figure out how to include subliminal messages in my cartoons, then all bets are off.
