First things first, Planned Parenthood were asked and said that Ms Fire Thunder has not approached them regarding a clinic and they have no current plans to open one there. So if a clinic is opened it will not necessarily be a PP one.

Secondly, why is everyone going on about this like she's doing it for everyone? It's going to be on native land for the natives - she has not said at any point that it would be open to the public. So loads of white girls (like me, though I'm safe in the UK) are going to be desperately searching their genealogy for proof that they're 'native'.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ms Fire Thunder is doing this as a big 'fuck you' to the white man - and good on her if she is.

it doesn't say she's not going to let white people come onto her nation, either. *shrug*

Just like only natives are allowed to buy alcohol or cigarettes on native land, gamble on native land, or buy souveniers on native land, right? You have to pass a blood test before even being allowed to set foot on a reservation.

No but I'm pretty sure the law would prevent the clinic from being open to the public anyway.

whose law?

although it is a moot point, since PP has issued a statement saying they won't open one on the reservation.
