in hopoes of livening up the community again...

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is giving out "free emergency contraception" to the people of Colorado tomorrow.

People are calling this action "benevolent" and "gracious".

Here are some things to consider:

Planned Parenthood buys its EC for only $3 or $4 a pack and then sells them for more than $30. How much do they stand to make big profits off of return sales?

According Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ own numbers it made nearly $21 Million and cleared a profit of well over $1 Million in 2004.

$2 million of that was grants and reimbursements from government funding. By offering a few pills that only cost a few dollars for free how many hundreds of thousands of dollars more in tax money will they be given?


As an aside. I would love to see this community move and grow. Suggest it to friends you think would enjoy it. And contribute. Remember, not everything has to sound like sage wisdom, this is a place to spur thought and consideration and the smallest or most banal of things can do that.
