Re: July 17 article “Bus driver says religious beliefs led to his firing.”
I was disappointed in Capital Area Rural Transportation System bus driver Edwin Graning’s narrow perspective regarding the services that Planned Parenthood offers and his assumption that the two women seeking transportation to Planned Parenthood were seeking abortions.
As a previous board member of Planned Parenthood for many years, I learned firsthand that more than 95 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services are for affordable preventive reproductive health care and educational services.
I invite Graning and others who have similar misconceived ideas of Planned Parenthood’s mission to take a tour of one of our facilities. I think they would observe how Planned Parenthood makes such a positive difference by offering affordable, quality reproductive health care for so many women, men and their families, thereby strengthening our community. roBBie Ausley
Maybe this man ought to go to Saudi Arabia, where he can mind all the women he wants. I say fire him and employ an understanding woman, maybe a Planned Parenthood activist. I would do that job for free.
