Republicans Should Stop Saying They Will Defund Planned Parenthood

Republicans really need to stop saying they are going to defund Planned Parenthood. The left hates when anything gets defunded by government. Saying this is too antagonistic. In order to make it less controversial, the GOP needs to think about what the left really loves and talk to them in that way.

One thing the left really loves is abortion.

So instead of saying they’re going to defund Planned Parenthood, the GOP needs to start saying they’re going to crack open Planned Parenthood’s skull, suck out its brains, then tear it limb from limb. The left loves that. Hell, say it’s the taxpayers right to choose and the taxpayers chose to abort Planned Parenthood by voting for the GOP.

Surely then the left will be okay with it.
