FAIRFIELD — State Assemblyman Jim Frazier joined the Planned Parenthood rally Tuesday in Sacramento.

Planned Parenthood activists come to the state Capitol to meet with legislators and discuss current issues affecting reproductive health care, Frazier said.

The assemblyman said that for nearly 100 years, Planned Parenthood has practiced cultural sensitivity in all communities to provide exceptional health services, accurate information and education and to advocate for reproductive rights and justice.

    I am not surprised but sad that more babies will be aborted and Frazier is supporting this!

    Weird I read the article a couple times and i didnt see anything about Frazier supporting the murder of innocent life. Maybe you read a different article about him supporting the war, slaughter of animals, or the death penalty? Or maybe you are Pro-fetus and read the article wrong.

    There are many reasons not to vote for Frazier but this isn't one of them. This is not a state issue.

    To force girls and women to gestate, labor and deliver irrespective of their physical, mental and financial limitations is not prolife, but anti-quality of life. Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy. Like swimming isn't consent to drowning. Our bodies and everything attached to our bodies and being created by our bodily resources belong to us. Women have over 30 years of fertility. US women want on average just two children. That means we spend the bulk of 30 years trying to avoid unwanted pregnancy! Can you do something perfectly for thirty years? All birth control has a failure rate. Even a tubal ligation has a 2% failure rate. 5% of rapes result in pregnancy(Cited:Raiin). 54% who abort used birth control the month they got pregnant(Cited: Guttmacher Ins). One-two unplanned pregnancies is average in America. The best way to reduce abortions is comprehensive sex education. Unfortunately, "pro-life" groups are anti-birth control. Crisis Pregnancy Centers and churches are claim "the pill is murder" and "condoms are unreliable." This advice has been proven to increase unplanned pregnancies. But it also increases abortions and adoptions. This advice makes no logical sense until you realize that CPCs & churches most profitable business venture by far is adoption. In fact, churches supported abortion through month month five(quickening) for thousands of years. It wasn't until they got involved in adoption profits, did they changed their tune! It's all about money. Newborns sell for $15,000-$50,000 each, nowhere near te actual costs and paying no taxes on the income. Adoption is a $14 billion/year business. If you follow the anti-abortion messages they usually lead to mostly unnecessary, highly profitable and unethical newborn adoption businesses. We have two options. Illegal/unregulated/unsafe abortion. Or legal/regulated/safe abortion. 1/3 of US women will have an abortion prior to age 45. If you care about the females in your life, you'd want them to have access to safe, affordable abortion.

    It's impossible to abort an adult. I think you mean how would I feel if my mother aborted me? In that case, I would not have known any different. The same way I wouldnt have known any different if she didnt have intercourse with her husband the night I was conceived. I am so happy that my mother is pro-choice. I was born out of love and a desire to parent me. Not out of obligation. Also, I personally believe that we are souls with bodies, not the other way around. And that our souls meet body at birth, not conception. By the way, up to 80% of conceptions that fail to implant flush with menses. (NOT miscarriages, its called flushing. If you don't know what that is, google, "Is Heaven Populated By Embryos?) Life is up to chance.
