Sen. Scott Brown will support tax money for Planned Parenthood
catholicvote.org ^

Posted on 03/22/2011 1:27:47 PM PDT by fabrizio

Sen. Scott Brown, R-MA, is one of the only Senate Republicans who favor legal abortion. So today’s news that he will vote to keep tax money for Planned Parenthood is not shocking, but it is still disappointing.

Catholics, especially in Massachusetts, can let their voices be heard by calling Senator Brown’s office at (202) 224-4543.

Here’s the statement that Senator Brown issued today:

“I support family planning and health services for women. Given our severe budget problems, I don’t believe any area of the budget is completely immune from cuts,” he said. “However, the proposal to eliminate all funding for family planning goes too far. As we continue with our budget negotiations, I hope we can find a compromise that is reasonable and appropriate.”

Except it isn’t reasonable or appropriate to give this notorious organization another dime.

what a lowlife. I hope ALL pro-lifers and conservatives in Massachussets and not just loyal Catholics will call the office of this weasel and vote him out of office the next time around

So do most people Scott. It's the killing of the babies that we don't support.

Why does this sentence make no sense? "one of the only"?

C’mon folks, seriously - we KNEW this was what we were getting, and quite frankly, it’s the best we’re going to get out of MA.

I gave him contributions, knowing full well that this was the kind of “republican” he was. But he’s a hell of a lot better than the alternative, and in MA, there IS NOT a Conservative who’s electable statewide.

He was nothing more than a means to an end. If you thought you were going to get a pro-life candidate up in Mass you were sadly mistaken.

HELLO!

He’s from Massachusetts. Do you really think his replacement would even support CUTS to PP?

If Scotty was from SC, UT or OK I’d be in total agreement with you...but he’s probably the best we’ll get out of such a pathetic state.

FYI...Scott Brown has an ACU rating of 74, which is just one point higher than Alaska Senator Lisa Madcowski. That’s not so good, although you could look at the possibility that there could be a Democrat in their seats; the other senators from Massachusetts and Alaska have scores of 0 and 4, respectively. It also puts Brown and Madcowski ahead of the Maine sisters, who have identical scores of 64.

Totally disgusting. I have given this guy a TON more leeway than most FREEPERS but this is the last straw. As you know, abortion is my number one issue over anything else and this turd wants to provide funds to murder babies. You can’t get any sicker than that. It is over for him. Of course I don’t live in MASS but I can still not send a penny towards his reelection and support someone who is a better candidate. I am so disappointed in him. Just because he is from a liberal state does not mean he has to be liberal on every issue.

No he is not. He has not voted for one conservative cause since his first few votes just to appease the conservatives. I am sorry but yesterday I might have been saying the same thing but this is it. He must be voted out.

We knew he was NOT conservative when he ran for office. He just wasn't as bad as the RAT and that it was poking our finger in the Kennedys' eyes. We should not be surprised about this.

He undermines the entire conservative platform because in newspeak Republican = CONSERVATIVE.

I try to make this point but there are those here who would have preferred Marsha Coakley. It's not about the better choice it's about electing a Texas Republican in Mass. Won't happen but you can't convince some folks.

Because he's not a conservative and doesn't claim to be one. He voted against Kagan, for Patriot Act Renewals, and to repeal Obama care just last month. Do you really think you'd have gotten any of those votes out of Martha Coakley or Ted Kennedy?

Those are your alternatives.

This isn't PA or AZ we're talking about kicking out an Arlen Specter or John McCain and replace him with Pat Toomey or a John Kyl type. It's Massachusetts.

Checked Google and found out Scott belongs to the Christian Reformed Church. Questioned their feelings on abortion and found out that they DO NOT support abortions and are tasked to do everything in their power to stop this atrocity.

Guess he doesn’t listen to his Church Leaders either.

No I don’t think that a dem would vote for those items you presented. However, why couldn’t he AT LEAST vote no on this one.....I mean come on murder?????

Scott Brown clearly isn’t perfect. Let’s show ‘em who’s boss and put in someone in his seat who vote against conservative Supreme Court nominees who would vote to overturn Roe v Wade, who would vote to spend trillions on national health care and make-work projects.

I’m really concerned that the Catholics no longer support anti-abortion candidates. They vote very heavily for Democrats.

I doubt this will change their minds about Brown.

It’s really useless to fret over a rino like Scott Brown. Just as it is useless to fret over Leftist states like MA. Conservatives should ignore him and concentrate on getting conservative Republicans elected in conservative states.

Ahem, uh, Senator Brown, you lowlife, women can obtain family planning and health services through their primary care providers. They really can. I’ve done it myself. My PCP gives me regular “well woman” checkups and if I wanted it, all the birth control I could ever ask for, although I’ver never used it.

It’s just that you can’t get abortions at your primary care provider. Have to go to PP for that.

You and I know that, but to the majority of the folks in MA, abortion is like a Sacrament.

That's who elected him, that's who his friends and neighbors are. It's a sick world out there, liberalism is a culture of death.

Look, if someone better comes along, who has any chance of being viable, I'll absolutely support them, but I don't see it happening.

Scott Brown was elected by independent (unenrolled) women.

Abortion is their sacrament.

He's going to be reelected (overwhelmingly) next year - but not if he turns against abortion.

Let’s look at it this way — in Massachusetts, you only have choices between two evils — the GREATER (Martha Coakley) and the LESSER ( Scott Brown ).

Brown promised to oppose Obamacare and that was THE ISSUE during the elections then. If you can find someone else more conservative than Brown in Mass, more power to you. I’ll support him/her over Brown.

Had Coakley won, we’d have government funding of Planned Parenthood AND Obamacare.

There are no good choices in that state as far as I can see. If Mitt Romney is the best we can get out of it, the state is a lost cause.

Part of the problem is the State Republican party, should have had a candidate like Curt Schilling ready to go.

Shilling had far more name recognition than Brown. Brown was a total unknown. Curt Shilling could have won that race and not carried any political baggage like totally unknown Scott Brown.

I would have bet if you asked voters outside his District to name a state republican senator at that time, Scott Brown wouldn't be named. - Tom
