A few weeks ago, I wrote about Arizona’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood:

The Arizona Senate Committee on Healthcare and Medical Liability Reform approved HB 2800 which strips state funding from any group (like Planned Parenthood) that performs abortion even though existing state law and the fucking Hyde Amendment already prohibit the use of state/federal funds for abortion.

Well, on April 12, the Arizona Senate gave preliminary approval to the bill. The Senate is expected to pass it, and Jan Brewer is expected to sign it. As a result, Arizona will go the way of both New Hampshire and Texas, and will be dropped from the Medicaid program.

For a manufactured fake war, the war on women sure does feel very real, don’t you think?

ABL aka Angry Black Lady aka Imani Gandy is a recovering attorney with a burning love of fire and perfectly-constructed sentences. The “anger” portion of her moniker stems not from her displeasure at the hellscape that American politics has become, but rather is a symptom of the pituitary tumor which has been indefinitely detained in her brain since 2006. When she’s not pointing out that people are wrong on the Internet – or writing for Balloon Juice, The Grio, The Team Uterati Wiki Project, or RH Reality Check -- she likes long sits on the beach. Also, she thinks gravity is a real downer. You can follow her on Twitter at @AngryBlackLady.
