So What About Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is getting some much needed and much deserved scrutiny right now, and I am glad.  This article tells the facts:

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/aug/03/martin-omalley/97-planned-parenthoods-work-mammograms-preventive-/

It looks like PP did about 1/4 to 1/3 of all abortions in this country, and the claim that it provides mammograms is a lie.  Referrals is not the same as doing them.  Poor women have county health departments for other services.  Defunding PP is not going to be the end of affordable health care; it will be the end of tax-payer funded abortion, which is not supposed to be the case.

And then there is Margaret Sanger.  A friend posted this on Facebook:


Quite colorful display.  But did she really say this?  Yes, but if you read the Wikipedia page on her (and we all know Wikipedia is above reproach), you could interpret this as her saying something different . . . but I find that doubtful.  I think it's pretty clear she had racist views.  She was, however, not a proponent of abortion, just of birth control (and sexual "freedom").

Finally, they can scream all they want, but they haven't made the case that they don't profit from "fetal body parts."  They have blood on their hands, and money in them. 

I resent that I have to pay for this group.  God help us.
