And she gets the hook.

A day after it was learned that Planned Parenthood was getting a $75,000.00 grant from Shelby county (via money it got from the state) Governor Bill Haslam has replaced the commissioner of health. Couldn't happen to a nicer person.

Of course the person who replaced her was not a bunch better and may even be worse!!

Dreyzehner was a featured presenter earlier this year at a conference of the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA), a group which, according to its website, exists to promote "reproductive freedom" and to lobby for unlimited abortion and the expansion of tax payer funding for agencies such as Planned Parenthood. That nationwide group calls itself 'the voice for family planning' and stresses the importance of "strengthening the Title X program," an effort by the federal government which directs millions of tax dollars annually to Planned Parenthood affiliates around the nation. Earlier this year during a 2011 NFPRHA conference, Dreyzehner joined a leading pro-abortion lobbyist, Rachel Benson Gold, to present a session entitled "Family Planning Workforce Challenges." The seminar focused on assisting "reproductive health" agencies to position themselves to take full benefit of the coming federal health care programs. Benson Gold serves as public policy analyst for the Washington-based Guttmacher Institute, a group which strongly opposes pro-life legislation and which was originally organized as a research arm of Planned Parenthood. Tennessee Right to Life has expressed deep disappointment in the Governor's pick. "After a legislative session in which pro-life majorities made clear their desire to bar the use of tax dollars for agencies such as Planned Parenthood, it appears that the Governor has invited a fox into the henhouse," said Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life.


  1. Are you implying that Gov. Haslam replaced Susan Cooper because of Planned Parenthood funding that represents a tiny fraction of the Tennessee Dept. of Health budget? Really?

  2. From the frying pan into the fire... the R appointment could be worse than the D appointment.

    This is a good example of why we should keep the 17th amendment. The State legislature does not need to appoint our federal Senators. It also serves as an example of why we the people should popularly elect our Judges.

  3. Goober just doesn't get it about de-funding the PP slaughterhouses.
