“Governor Bill Haslam is drawing criticism from the state’s pro-life organization for naming an abortion backers as the top health official in the Volunteer State.
Haslam announced today his selection of Dr. John Dreyzehner for the state’s top medical post, but it drew quick response from, which says Dreyzehner’s close association with a leading pro-abortion advocacy organization calls into question his suitability for the head of the state health department.
“I am pleased that John has agreed to join our team,” Haslam said. “He brings a wealth of experience to the position from his service in the Air Force to his work as a public health official in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee. I look forward to working with him and appreciate his willingness to serve the citizens of Tennessee.”
According to Tennessee Right to Life, Dreyzehner was a featured presenter earlier this year at a conference of the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA), a group which, according to its website, exists to promote “reproductive freedom” and to lobby for unlimited abortion and the expansion of tax payer funding for agencies such as Planned Parenthood. That nationwide group calls itself ‘the voice for family planning’ and stresses the importance of “strengthening the Title X program,” an effort by the federal government which directs millions of tax dollars annually to Planned Parenthood affiliates around the nation.”
—Ok, people, people, people. I’m so sorry. This article is definitely by a terrible pro-‘life’ group in TN and it’s awful and has a lot of errors (like several completely random missing words, idk, what is happening?). But I can’t even resist. It popped up on my google news alerts and I was like FUCK YEAH WE DID SOMETHING RIGHT??? And we totally did. And the scare quotes around family planning and reproductive freedom are so ridiculous they make me giggle
a little hysterically. And like, the blatant misinformation which leads the sadly misguided readers of this tripe to believe that the government somehow funds abortions and oh god they kill all teh babez with our moniez and give the slutty womenz freedom!!!!!!!!!!11!!!
Like, oh, there’s this one part where they say “Harris’ group worked to eliminate taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and successfuly won legislative approval of a provision to do so, but someone in the legislature secretly removed it from the final bill that Governor Bill Haslam eventually signed." bahahaha ‘who was that masked man?"
whatever assholes, you forget to mention the crazy lengths you guys tried to go to to FORCE this shit without having to have it signed or voted on at ALL when it was slated to be voted on next year….so don’t spout bullshit to me about ‘pro-life majority’ when in reality if that were true you could’ve left the defunding PP shit on the ballot and all your pro life minions would’ve voted and passed it and it would be so…right???
Anyway, shitty article is shitty but hilarious. Because they can’t even pretend to have any REAL reason to dislike this guy’s appointment (they list his credentials and they’re pretty boss) other than murdering teh babez.
and the article ends with:
ACTION: Contact Governor Bill Haslam at http://www.tn.gov/help to complain about the appointment.
but lets fix it for them:
