She wanted to be part of a group of teens going to DC to protest the reduction of federal $$ to PP. She planned on being a part of "PG-13 players which is a peer education drama troupe with Planned Parenthood of Middle Tennessee." They told her they had a chaperon pbl and so not everyone could go. She was disappointed but understood but then found out she was the only one not going...why?......because she has an illness (sickle cell) that the drs. said was under control. She had to find out via Facebook that she was the only one excluded and when confronted PP confessed they were concerned for her safety. Wow, that's another laugh line.
"[Cinanmon]Tarver and [mother, Kathy] Kirby decided to file a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood for discrimination under the Rehabilitation Act which states that no one with a disability can be excluded from participating from any program receiving federal assistance.
"I want them to be more educated," said Tarver.
"I want them to know that they can't discriminate. I want them to know that they need to ask questions, that's what they're there for, that's what they stand for," said Kirby.
