Cosmopolitan Magazine is Literally Sad that Women in Texas are Having More Babies

(Before It's News)

There are times when I feel that this society is sick and beyond hope. One of those times is when I saw this tweet from Cosmopolitan Magazine, which expresses literal sadness over the fact that women in Texas are having more babies since Planned Parenthood was defunded:

If you think that is terrible, wait until you see that the little sad face emoji is literally the point of the whole article.

The text of the article is yet more abundantly clear that, in the view of Cosmo magazine, babies are bad.

Unsurprisingly, the study shows a 1.9 percent increase in the birthing rate in counties that once had state-funded Planned Parenthood clinics during that same time period of 2011 to 2014.

If there were any remaining doubts about how cutting Planned Parenthood funding affects women, those should be pretty much cleared up by this new data. When Texas removed Planned Parenthood from its state Medicaid family-planning program, low-income women who qualified for the program were no longer able to afford some of the most highly effective contraception options. And the subsequent consequence was an uptick in the birthrate.

The bittersweet, not-so-silver lining in this is that Texas has basically served as a giant testing ground for policies that federal legislators have been promising constituents and trying to get passed on a national level for years. What’s happening in Texas is a preview of what happens when you take away health care from women. The effects would only be felt harder if you took health care away on a national scale.

Welp. All I really have to say about this is that I’m glad Cosmo is saying what a lot of other people actually mean.
