Planned Parenthood issued a statement last April elaborating on the discussions.“Cecile Richards and Ivanka Trump had a cordial and informative meeting shortly after the inauguration,” the statement read. We aren't half as shallow as you are.#The Resistancehttps://t.co/sg0d UROl Xr — Sarah Connor (@Sarah Connor2017) April 4, 2018 Remember you've been told repeatedly that Javanka, who are registered Independents, were going to advocate for women and #LGBT from inside the @White House.#Planned Parenthood CEO Says Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Offered 'Bribe' to Stop Abortions https://t.co/UPq0RSNmky — Victoria Brownworth (@VABVOX) April 4, 2018 The White House has not yet addressed the claim.“The purpose of the meeting, from Planned Parenthood’s perspective, was to make sure that Ivanka Trump fully understood the important role Planned Parenthood plays in providing health care to millions of people and why it would be a disastrous idea to block people from accessing care at Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has issued a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle reiterating its stance on the issue.“As always, Planned Parenthood will do everything we can to stand up for our patients and their right to reproductive health care,” it reads.Of course, Cosmopolitan thinks this is a great idea because “defunding Planned Parenthood would have an irreconcilable impact on women’s healthcare across the country, and particularly on low-income communities that overwhelmingly rely on Planned Parenthood for contraception, screenings, and abortion care” and to match with someone who doesn’t agree would be “totally terrible.” It is very likely the liberal echo-chamber in leadership at Ok Cupid agrees with Cosmo’s belief that dating someone who doesn’t celebrate Planned Parenthood’s abortion business would be “terrible.” After all, IAC (Inter Active Corp), the parent company of the dating service and several others, is also the owner of the left-leaning Daily Beast online news service.
This new feature also allows OKCupid’s algorithm to filter and “promote like-minded daters to one another.” When asked if people would be matched with individuals who have answered this question the same way as one another, OKCupid commented that “you will be matched primarily, not exclusively, with users who have similar beliefs.”This feature and partnership is the first of its kind, and was pursued by OKCupid after a “huge response” from the site’s community to the question “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?
” per CMO Melissa Hobley, who called Planned Parenthood a “dream partner.”Though the company is demonstrably excited about this initiative, on deeper examination, this new feature does have the potential to exacerbate a number of social quandaries our country is grappling with.
That is probably something a dating services should consider before partnering with largest provider of abortions in the country to “screen” for potential dating matches, especially given that millennials are the age group most likely to patronize a dating service.
Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance writes: The dating website Ok Cupid, which has admitted in the past to doing social experiments on their users, has partnered with Planned Parenthood.
America looks and feels increasingly divided, with the internet and social media making it easier for people to curate what information they see and live in a bubble that, rather than educates them, reaffirms their preconceived beliefs.
