Jay Barnes: Planned Parenthood like Slave Owners

Over the weekend, Rep. Jay Barnes (R-Jefferson City) wrote about the recent secretly recorded and heavily edited videos that make outrageous claims against Planned Parenthood and the care they provide. Never mind that extreme anti-abortion activists are likely the only ones who have broken laws, Barnes seems to have followed their lead, and is making a few outrageous claims of his own.

Planned Parenthood leaders believe what they are doing should be legal, but also believe there is nothing wrong with what they are doing. Slave owners didn’t think there was anything wrong with what they were doing either.

Comparing the help and care that Planned Parenthood provides thousands of Missouri women to the enslavement of African Americans is as preposterous and out-of-touch as it gets.

This is only further proof that a woman's medical decisions are best left to her and her doctor, not to be debated by extremists in Jefferson City.
