The WNBA and Planned Parenthood Team Up to “Take a Stand” Against Trump

Apparently, there is no female empowerment without government-funded abortion.

Apparently, there is no female empowerment without government-funded abortion.

At least, this is how the WNBA feels as they announce they’ve teamed up with Planned Parenthood to “empower girls and women” to have continued access to on-demand abortion without apology.

The move comes in the wake of a surprise announcement from the Trump administration that they’ll be working to stop the flow of federal funding to abortion provider Planned Parenthood, which receives $1.3 million in federal funding each year.

The WNBA, in a campaign they’re calling “Take a Seat, Take a Stand,” will be donating $5 of every ticket purchase to Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion women’s organizations such as The United State of Women, It’s On Us, the gay advocacy group GLSEN, Bright Pink, and MENTOR, according to Breitbart.

“For 22 years, the WNBA and its players – women playing at the highest level of their sport – have stood up as role models for millions of women and girls,” said WNBA President Lisa Borders in a statement. “With ‘Take a Seat, Take a Stand,’ we are proud to come together as a league to stand with our partner organizations, our fans and the many inspiring women raising their voices for change in the current women’s movement.”

Planned Parenthood, in turn, expressed their gratitude to the WNBA:

“We’re so grateful the WNBA is standing up for the 2.4 million patients who rely on Planned Parenthood and supporting issues that affect the health, well-being, and success of women and girls,” said Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “Players have used their platforms to bring attention to inequality and, through ‘Take a Seat, Take a Stand,’ the WNBA is giving fans an opportunity to join them in the fight for social change.”

The pro-life crowd, understandably so, were critical of this move by a sports organization many had forgotten even existed.

“If you needed more proof that the WNBA is lame,” pro-life blogger Matt Walsh said in response to the WNBA’s announcement.

“On the bright side,” one of his followers reassured, “that means that the new donations heading into PP from this policy will be rather minuscule considering the massive popularity and soaring ticket sales of the WNBA…”

Fair point.

Ocasio-Cortez Not Happy Trump Called Her AOC During Debate; Says It’s Sexist

Published

During the last presidential debate held on Thursday night, President Donald Trump referred to everyone’s least favorite Democratic Socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, by her initials, “AOC,” which pretty much everyone calls her by. However, it appears this did not settle well with her. In fact, she considered it to be sexist and demands that the president call her “congresswoman.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot,” she tweeted. “AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101,” she continued. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319497076842110976 https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319499191551447041 The responses to AOC’s tweet were varied, with a lot of conservatives pointing out that there’s a big difference between nicknames and the use of a person’s initials. Many went on to note that President Trump often refers to men with more personal names, for example, referring to Joe Biden as simply, “Joe.” And, as you might expect, progressives eager to be white knights showed up to defend her from the big, bad orange man. “AOC is not a nickname, they’re your initials. JFK is also not a nickname. The FBI, again, is not a nickname. You can maybe say that Trump should’ve still used your official title, but Obama was also referenced sans title, and you don’t see him whining about it on Twitter…” said Lauren Chen in a tweet. “As a fellow…

Biden Says He Never Called For End To Fracking During Debate, But He Did Back In 2019

Published

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head in Thursday night’s final presidential debate on the topic of energy police and how their plans for reform might impact American workers. During the debate, held in Nashville, Tennessee, the president accused Biden of going all in on a radical leftist environmental agenda that would completely ban fracking and obliterate the oil industry. Via Fox News: During their debate in Nashville, Tenn., Trump accused Biden of embracing a radical environmental agenda that would ban fracking and destroy the oil industry. “He was against fracking,” Trump said. “He said it … until he got the nomination, went to Pennsylvania, then he said — but you know what Pennsylvania, he’ll be against it very soon because his party is totally against it.” “Fracking on federal land, I said, no fracking and/or oil on federal land,” Biden shot back. The problem here is that fracking provides hundreds of thousands of jobs in this country. To seek to ban it and get rid of it would put all of these fine people out of work and do massive damage to the economy. Way back in 2019, Biden was asked during a Democratic primary debate if there would be “any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?” “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel,” the former vice president replied. During the debate on Thursday, the president pressed hard on Biden to answer if he would shut down the oil industry. “I would transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden said. Biden has also come out in favor of the Green New Deal. This piece of socialistic garbage…
