Nope, no jobs in here!

I need to get to the piece about the DNC meeting in Phoenix I intend to do but holy shit do I need to address this right now.

He should get the economy moving, not defund health services for people struggling to get by.

I voted for Donald Trump because I wanted to see change in our country. One change I didn’t want to see was access to health care at Planned Parenthood blocked.

But Republican congressional leaders have already promised to do just that, with a provision to stop reimbursements for the health care Planned Parenthood provides.

Just like one in 5 women across the country, I went to Planned Parenthood here in Arizona in my 20s for health care. I was newly divorced, unemployed and uninsured, and I needed health services I could not otherwise afford.

The author, Melody Forbes, a Phoenix human resource professional, seems well-educated and is obviously pro-choice and well-versed in defending reproductive rights in a broad framework of universal health care access. I imagine she voted for some of the Democrats on her ballot as well as Trump for that reason. She voted for Trump to, as she put it:

…based on the issues he campaigned on: creating jobs, making health care more affordable, and making our country great again. I voted for him because I trust him to get our economy moving again.

Hmm…I’d be interested to know what she means by “making our country great again” but…okay. She claims her vote was not against Planned Parenthood, and even more amazingly:

I knew he would have to make promises to appease the anti-abortion wing of the Republican Party. I’m hopeful that Trump will see that defunding Planned Parenthood is the kind of campaign promise he shouldn’t keep.

I find it difficult to believe Forbes was unaware of Trump’s statement that women should be punished for abortion in an interview (which he swiftly walked back under intense pressure), or his ludicrous claim at the third debate that women hire doctors to “rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, on the final day”. Those statements were more than insincere pandering to the anti-choice crowd. They fit a lifetime pattern of Trump being a vile misogynist.

Trump has a history of wildly inconsistent positions on practically everything, and his views on reproductive rights are no exception. He has expressed support for legal abortion and Planned Parenthood in the past, and his personal history as a sexual libertine could lull people into believing he’s really pro-choice and will act in the best interest of women on this issue.

That assumption is a mistake. Again, Mr. Grab ‘Em By The Pussy is a woman-hating shitlord with no regard for women’s personal boundaries or agency. And while he probably doesn’t have a moral objection to abortion, he is probably also not pro-choice. My read of him is he views the decision of whether or not a woman continues a pregnancy to be not hers to make. If she’s the partner of a rich man, he decides. If she’s poor, the government does. There is no evidence, based on whom Trump is surrounding himself in his administration, he favors a government that is amenable to women making their own health care decisions.

Oh, and honorable mention of course goes to the MSM, who contributed to voter confusion over what women faced under Trump by assisting him with the walk-back and soft-pedaling. After the “punish women” incident media people went right back to describing him as “pro-choice” regularly.
