— A Kansas legislator is standing by a comment he made in a letter comparing Planned Parenthood with a Nazi concentration camp.

Republican state Sen. Steve Fitzgerald of Leavenworth told The Kansas City Star on Monday that he considers Planned Parenthood worse than the Nazi regime in Germany.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards called Fitzgerald’s comments disturbing and said he should be ashamed.

Fitzgerald is a strong abortion opponent. He sent a letter to Planned Parenthood Great Plains last week after learning a donation had been made in his name.

He said in his letter on official Senate stationery that such a donation in his name was worse than “having one’s name associated with Dachau.”

The Planned Parenthood chapter tweeted a photo of the letter.

What a moron. He is pro birth, not pro life.

Yet one more Kansas blow hard spouting off without any regard for the facts or reality. To keep railing about PP abortion in Kansas is akin to claiming illegal immigrants voting influence our elections. Fantasy. Maybe he should visit with some folks that actually derived benefit from their health care services. It is sad that we so much blind ignorance in our statehouse.

Just because the Liberal human rakes human fetus from the womb like the NAZI's did, doesn't mean PP is like the NAZIs.

What is does say is NAZI's were Liberal human beings. They displayed the tendencies of humans with the genetic Liberal condition of today.

It could also be said that the condition has been with mankind since Cain and Abel.

Cain was jealous of his brother Abel so he killed him.

THE MEN IN ALL ASPECTS OF WOMEN'S HEALTH NEED TO KEEP THEIR MOUTH SHUT ABOUT SOMETHING THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.

"Sen. Steve Fitzgerald of Leavenworth told The Kansas City Star on Monday that he considers Planned Parenthood worse than the Nazi regime in Germany." What, Senator Fitzgerald, do you actually know about Planned Parenthood? Although Federal dollars go into funding for PP, no Federal money is spent on abortions. So what is the problem? Picture this--a young, unmarried woman needing birth control services, and has no primary care doctor and no insurance, goes to Planned Parenthood and gets a thorough physical exam followed by the birth control she needs, and that is that. Abortions are only a small portion of PP's overall services. And what is this man doing making decisions for women, anyway!!

PP is really going to profit from his mouth. Lots of people are donating in his name.

We know conservatives have declared war on women BUT where is the war on sperm and the only source of sperm we know of ------- where is the war on men the most reliable source of pregnancy?

We need tough legislation directed at men holding them and their sources of income responsible for every child they create! Otherwise elected officials are very much guilty of discrimination.

No sperm no babies? It's the men and their reckless behavior. Men need birth control because without sperm there are no babies. Why is America blaming women .... they have no sperm?

We need tough legislation directed at men holding them and their sources of income responsible for every child they create! In conjunction the nation needs a tracking system keeping the runaway fathers on the radar yes even frat rats, white collared legislators and executives. The only sources of sperm must PAY support always.

It's the men NOT the women !!!!!
