Yeah, that’s right, THEY are the aggressors. 

Uh, for starters, there’s this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Iraq_War
The Iran-Iraq War lasted 7 years, 10 months, 4 weeks and 1 day. Estimates put the total death count anywhere between 500,000 to 1,000,000.
I’m not arguing against the right half of this graphic, but the left half is complete bullshit.

Ohio mother Libby Bruce, Planned Parenthood patient, to speak at Democratic National Convention

Connie Schultz, Libby Bruce, and Cecile Richards

Columbus resident, Planned Parenthood patient, and new mother, Elizabeth Ann “Libby” Bruce, (pictured above, center) will speak tonight during the 2012 Democratic National Convention.  She is expected to take the stage between 8:00PM and 8:30PM (EST) just before Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards.  

At age 18, Ms. Bruce sought help for severe abdominal pain.  After visiting several physicians who dismissed her pain as being “all in her head”, she went to an Ohio Planned Parenthood health center where she was diagnosed with endometriosis, a leading cause of infertility.  Planned Parenthood recommended a surgeon who removed a growth from her pelvis.  Ten years later, Ms. Bruce gave birth to a healthy baby daughter.

Speaking at a Planned Parenthood Action Fund rally in Columbus, Ohio on August 24, Ms. Bruce said, “Because of the treatment I received at a Planned Parenthood health center, my condition was managed and today I have a beautiful daughter.  When Mitt Romney attacks the health care provider that protected my fertility, I have to speak out. People need to know just what Romney and Ryan would get rid of if they had the power to, and people need to think about the stakes.”

President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, Stephanie Kight said, “Everyday Planned Parenthood provides women like Ms. Bruce quality health care regardless of their insurance status or income.”  

Annually, nearly 100,000 patients come to the 31 Planned Parenthood health centers in Ohio  to get high-quality, affordable health care.  Kight added, “Last year alone, our health centers provided 18,284 cervical cancer screenings, 20,103 breast exams, and 50,872 tests for Chlamydia.”

These are basic economic issues for women and families, and supporting family planning is smart fiscal policy for the country.
