Like many women who rely on the services of Planned Parenthood for everything from cancer screenings, birth control, and in some cases yes — abortions — one young woman has a message to Republicans who would like to see these services grind to a halt, endangering those who need them.
She’s flipping them all off, from her hospital bed — post surgery.
In 2013, Ambarie Stacey Schiefer was 23 years old and required surgery to have abnormal cells removed from her cervix to prevent them from becoming cancerous. From her hospital bed, she took a strong selfie flipping off those in the future who would stand against Planned Parenthood, the organization which helped make it possible for her to have the potentially life-saving surgery.
The article goes on to explain that cervical cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer related death in women, but if caught early through pap smears can be treated quite effectively.
In the last 50 years cervical cancer deaths have decreased by 74% largely due to the availability of pap smears like those offered for free by Planned Parenthood.
Of course none of that matters to the conservatives who would condemn these women to death for the opportunity to also dramatically decrease their access to legal abortion.
But remember, the war on women is merely a figment of the liberal's imagination.
