The email below from the Mother of former Republican Senate Majority leader Randy Richardville illustrate our frustration with Republicans who approved our Sanctity of Life plank but defend Republican-In-Name-Only legislators who voted to fund the world’s largest abortion mill with our tax dollars.

Barb, I would not call these 12 RHINO’s, personally I do not like this term, their total record, not just one vote, needs to be taken into account before the labeling happens. Planned Parenthood does a lot more than abortion; they also provide different methods of birth control, counseling, STD’s prevention and treatment and much more.
Abortion, adoption and other options are also supplied to the expectant mother instead of just abortion. If you read more that just what this one person has to say about this issue, you might be surprised what PP actually does. It also helps the mothers who want to keep their baby and provide clothing and supplies for them etc.
Sometimes pharmacy companies donate cases of formula. They provide Teaching and hospital options, midwife as well as ensuring that the expectant mother receives adequate prenatal care, vitamins etc. Get the expectant mother in touch with social services and welfare as well as programs to help with the medical care and food for the baby for only $5.00 a month.
They actually help them fill out the forms. I would hold judgment until more information was provided. Our social workers work very closely with Planned Parenthood and the health department. It is NOT just about abortion. Go on the web and look up Planned Parenthood and read the additional information regarding this issue.
The ideology expressed here by 1st Vice Chair Glenda Kennon of the Monroe County Republican Party may be heart warming and sincere in her opinion, it does not represent the true Republican principles, traditions, and values of the Republican Party.
The recent scandals of the past few years have proved that Planned Parenthood is not only in direct conflict and disregard of the Republican principles, traditions, and values of the Republican Party platform, but a blatant disregard of the law by this organization.
This just shows that by advocating Planned Parenthood by this Republican elected official based on emotion and personal feelings is not in keeping with Republican principles, traditions, and values. That’s unconscionable!
Monroe resident Glenda Kennon earns state GOP post
The Republican Women’s Federation of Michigan has elected Glenda Kennon to the position of assistant treasurer of the State Republican Women’s Federation.
Glenda Kennon’s sister and former wife of Michigan Senator Roger Kahn is State President of Michigan’s Federation of Republican Women’s Clubs.
Sandra Kahn is also the aunt of former state Senate Majority leader Randy Richardville (Glenda Kennon’s son by Richardville’s father) and the ex-wife of Sen. Roger Kahn of Saginaw Township. Oh the webs they weave within the political arena.
