Title: INcestry.com

Y’all we’ve been on the Iowa Rep. Steve King beat for a WHILE, that boy lovessss fetuses and HATES everyone else! And he’s in the news AGAIN this week talking about… how rape and incest like… are why we’re here today and look over here as he makes abortion rights DISAPPEAR! What he said was SO extreme that the extremists… woulda prob been fine with it if people hadn’t noticed and got mad. After King we talk about how people are STILL confusing Plan B and medication abortion and CVS’s very bureaucratic, but still crazy-shitty new birth control reimbursement policies!

In talking to the Westside Conservative Club (https://www.facebook.com/Westside-Conservative-Club-105288034391/ which is exactly what it sounds like) this Wednesday, King said: “What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” he said at the event in Urbandale, Iowa. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages taken place and whatever happened to culture after society? I know I can’t certify that I’m not a part of a product of that.”

HISTORY OF STEVE KINGS WHITE SUPREMACY

TEXAS Rape Center and Plan B usage: https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/health/Plan-B-Pill-Center-of-Rape-Crisis-Center-Funding-Debate-in-Plano-538489931.html?fbclid=IwAR0ZvooZl1suu5la-bwrqMVLH-l7WLxT_QmdwSpeIrhrRTCH-siPb4qxczo

The city council is debating providing 57k (4% of the clinic’s budget), all bc of the inclusion of the morning-after pill provided to qualifying individuals. The over-the-counter medication is offered to survivors of sexual assault at The Turning Point rape crisis center in Plano within 72 hours of an assault and after a negative pregnancy test

“My conscience will not permit me to support giving funding to any organization that disseminates the Plan B pill, because in some circumstances the Plan B pill destroys a human life,” Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Ricciardelli said at the meeting. He added he believed medication that prevents the implantation of a fertilized egg would kill an unborn child.

CVS info: 

Just as a little background, CVS Caremark is planning to reduce the reimbursement rate for birth control for those who have it delivered to their homes. This affects many patients who have disabilities or other hardships or social stigma that makes it hard for them to go to a physical retail pharmacy to pick it up in person. CVS wants to reimburse even less than what is paid to retail pharmacies. This means that tens of thousands of women who have birth control delivered to their homes will lose their access to birth control. It’s so infuriating and outrageous and why we are starting a campaign to force CVS to do the right thing. That’s why tomorrow we are launching a hashtag campaign #CVSdeniesCare at 9AM EST. Would love to know all of your thoughts on it and thank you so much in advance.
