According to Life News, our new president has signed an executive order defunding International Planned Parenthood.
I'm not a fan of our new president. And I'm not too keen on completely defunding Planned Parenthood, as they do provide many important services, as I've already said on another post.
However, as long as they're trying to normalize male genital mutilation, standing in the way of legislation that would defund elective, non-medical infant circumcision (though such defunding would be of zero consequence to them), and promoting male genital mutilation in Africa in the so-called name of "HIV Prevention," I say, GOOD.
Perhaps if they weren't so willing to throw the rights of boys and men under the bus in the so-called name of "women's health," I'd be singing a different tune.
Until I see them publicly change this stance, I'm afraid I can only agree that federal funds should be cut.
As a taxpayer, I don't want to be paying into an organization that tacitly approves of, defends, advocates for, even facilitates male genital cutting, and promotes "women's health" at the expense of men's health and choices.
Not all of us agree; some intactivists have different priorities.
But these are mine; any organization that promotes the forced genital mutilation of any sex needs to be defunded. At the very least, it shouldn't be paid for by the American tax dollar.
The views I express in this blog are my own individual opinion, and they do not necessarily reflect the views of all intactivists. I am but an individual with one opinion, and I do not pretend to speak for the intactivist movement as a whole, thank you.
