Well how about that, a freshman House Republican, Illinois’ Bob Dold, is going to sign his death wish this week. Not only does he plan “to introduce a bill Wednesday that would ensure Planned Parenthood’s access to federal funding,” but he’ll announce it at a press conference alongside Planned Parenthood. Total mindfuck. Does Dold walk on his head and speak in reverse, too? Who is this guy? Oh, nevermind, he’s just a “Republican in a moderate district.” Hadn’t those all been nuked by now? Guy just wants to get laid.
Dold also spoke out against the 2011 effort by House Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood immediately after taking power. But this is something else, here. His district is clearly dominated by the Vagina-American usurper class:
Freshman Rep. Robert Dold (R-Ill.) is coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood amid his party’s sustained assault on the organization.
Dold plans to introduce a bill Wednesday that would ensure Planned Parenthood’s access to federal funding. House Republicans have pushed to defund Planned Parenthood, and conservative governors have picked up where the federal effort failed.
“In response to the growing number of efforts to discriminate against and exclude organizations like Planned Parenthood from participating in health care programs, Dold’s legislation would protect the inclusion of any hospital or health care entity that seeks to participate in the Title X family planning program,” his office said in a release.
Planned Parenthood is scheduled to join Dold at a press conference Wednesday morning.
Okay Dold, we’ll consider making you the Wonkette Favorite Republican (although he probably also supports repealing the 13th Amendment and god knows what else). “Wonkette Favorite Republican” is a sure way to win Republican primaries in this day and age. You could secure it by having an abortion at this press conference, while cackling about how awesome abortion is. No — two abortions. Also, be gay or something. Seven abortions, being gay, and it’s a deal.
