[Ed.: Would these women have protested the likes of JFK or LBJ (or Bill Clinton) if they’d known how they used women had they been alive in those days? No, because those are Democrat presidents. Has Donald Trump ever pulled out his “Johnson” in front of reporters to prove how big he was? Where do you little snowflakes think the term came from? Lyndon Baines Johnson did precisely that.]

[Ed: When you phrase the question like this, you’re going to get 56% from Republicans as most don’t favor shutting down the government over it: “An overwhelming share of Americans — 69 percent of voters including 56 percent of Republicans — support Planned Parenthood and oppose shutting down the federal government over its funding.” However, if you were to ask “do you think Planned Parenthood should receive federal tax dollars?”, the poll would be quite different. Most Republicans and conservatives oppose taxpayer dollars going to fund abortion and abortion providers even if they’re pro-abortion. Period. Sen. Murray, elections have consequences!]
