Northern Michigan commissioner blocks Planned Parenthood grant request, says they 'kill babies'

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, MI — A county commissioner successfully blocked a casino profit sharing request by Planned Parenthood for sex education money this week in northern Michigan, saying the organization exists to “kill babies.”

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reported that Grand Traverse County Commissioner Jason Gillman, a Tea Party adherent who publishes the blog Right Michigan, convinced fellow commissioners to spike a $12,500 grant application for abstinence-based sex education in area schools.

"The organization is designed to kill babies," Gillman reportedly said. "The nicer side of it is only there to mask its evil intent. That is to kill babies."

Planned Parenthood of West and Northern Michigan sought the funding from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, which, like other Indian tribes with casinos in Michigan, distributes a portion of gaming revenues to local governments and area nonprofits under its tribal gaming compact.

Gillman must be ecstatic.

As for the other commissioners they must just fools to take notice of this dumbsuck.

4. I plan to retire there, and raise hell

No place finer than the Traverse City area, as Michael Moore and Mario Batali can testify. I love it, and my friends there. Just gorgeous (the area, not all my friends - some are pretty cute). I will be damned if this old lib moves up there and stays silent. But, I will enjoy the wineries, the views, and the fact that this isn't Mississippi - you can argue with these folks without being killed.

17. Moore founded the Traverse City Film Festival, in fact. Time to cancel it next year?

Or for Michissippi to secede from the rational-minded Michigan?

13. Rick Snyder signaled his approval by signing restrictive abortion legislation this past week.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/28/michigan-abortion-law-_n_2377744.html

However, as long as abortion remains legal in Michigan I don't understand how Grand Traverse county commissioners can refuse to share the money from the casino funds, based on the issue of abortion, and still remain within the law.

15. Sue them! Sue this guy.

Someone put this to the courts, please. You can't do it and we can't allow him or them to get away with it. They thumb their noses without a hitch because they think God is on their side and therefore are above the law... and heaven awaits them. It's no better than suicide bomber thinking.
