Unlikely bedfellows, Planned Parenthood and Barbara Bush, or are they?

The first act of "W" after his inauguration was to cut international funding to women's health agencies that fund abortions.

Roe v. Wade was a Texas woman wanting an abortion. The idea Texas women see abortion differently than Texas politics is not so surprising.

Barbara Bush is CEO & Co-founder of Global Health Corps (GHC), which mobilizes a global community of young leaders to build the movement for health equity. GHC was founded in 2009 by six twenty-somethings who were challenged by Peter Piot at the aids2031 Young Leaders Summit to engage their generation in solving the world’s biggest health challenges. Barbara and her co-founders were united by the belief that health is a human right and that their generation must build the world where this is realized. Since that time, GHC has placed more than 700 young leaders on the front lines of health equity in Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia, and the United States, developing a cadre of creative, effective, and compassionate changemakers.

(The Hill) Barbara Pierce Bush, (click here) the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will headline a Planned Parenthood fundraiser next week in Texas, according to a report from the Texas Tribune.

Bush is expected to be the keynote speaker at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’s annual Fort Worth fundraising luncheon.

President Bush pushed for anti-abortion policies during his time in the White House, but his wife Laura Bush has supported legal abortion in the past.

Unwanted pregnancies happen, they are not planned. One of the reasons Planned Parenthood began their mission was to educate women about their choices in reproduction. 

Women want control of their future. They want control of how the family spins out and the success a parent has in promoting their children to a life of wholesomeness and happiness. Unplanned pregnancies can lead to job, but, sometimes leads to hardship. The word "unplanned or unwanted" are not the enemies.

Lack of knowledge about a woman's responsibility in giving birth leads to many venues of disadvantage in the USA. Planned Parenthood sought to provide insight to what can be a life of reproductive control to provide for that happiness.

...2011...Being a child in a low-income or poor family does not happen by chance. There are a range of factors associated with children’s experiences of economic insecurity, including race/ethnicity and parents’ education and employment....
There are more (click here) than 72 million children under 18 years old in the United States.
  • 45 percent – 32.4 million – live in low-income families.
  • 22 percent – 16.1 million – live in poor families.
These facts are real. These facts are American. These facts are a national shame and women such as Cecile Richards and Barbara Bush have the knowledge and power to move generations of women and children to health and better quality of life

SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT, the USA legislature is too inept to their own politics to find their way out of a paper bag.
