    Keep your legs closed as much as you can and you won't need planned parenthood. Also, just so you know and the rest of the bonehard Dimbocrats screeching on here. DT is not overturning Roe vs Wade. Just trying to keep out the really disgusting if not immoral part of killing a human at full term.
