Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt this week cut funds to Planned Parenthood -- money that had been used for cancer screenings. According to KYTV's David Catanese, the governor said:
"Patients should not have to go to an abortion clinic to access life saving tests. Today I put an end to taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood in Springfield and Joplin through the Show Me Healthy Women Program. This ensures women may access important preventative care without contributing to abortion providers’ goal of facilitating the destruction of innocent life."
Since when is Springfield's Planned Parenthood an abortion clinic? Blunt knows it's not, but the lie tastes too good in his mouth and besides, it's red meat for his base.

I have written Matt Blunt to ask him to explain his thinking that it is better to die of cancer than to be inside a counseling center. Since both my parnets died of cancer I told him that I disagreed with his thinking.

His action is just plain wrong. I am outraged.
