Sometimes liberals say the funniest things!
Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards spoke at Princeton University this week. The topic of her talk? “Keeping Politics out of Women’s Health.”
No, that’s not a misprint.
“The single biggest struggle is dealing with the politics of it all,” Richards said. “It’s the barrier that politics are putting ahead on the wellbeing on young people in this country and of women. Every time we take two steps forward, we take another step backwards. Partisan politics rather than public health interests are driving healthcare policy in America.”
Saying that Planned Parenthood abjures politics is like saying Al Sharpton is a simple country preacher or that Chuck Schumer isn’t in love with the sound of his own voice.
Planned Parenthood’s entire business model is predicated on lobbying government for an ever-increasing stream of our tax dollars. To ensure their gravy train is never derailed they work tirelessly to elect Democrats. Politics is their bread and butter.
What Ms. Richards obviously objects to is the newly energized pushback her partisan activities have engendered. We now know what goes on behind the curtain at Planned Parenthood. And we’re not impressed.
But she’s still trying to obfuscate their true purpose.
“It’s an obvious point, but you’d think if you really wanted to reduce the need for abortion in this country, wouldn’t you come volunteer at a Planned Parenthood health center because we do more every single day to avoid unintended pregnancy and the need for abortion than all these people carrying these picket and right to life signs,” Richards said.
Jaw. Meet floor.
They’ve Been There and Done That. And witnessed firsthand the truth behind the propaganda. Planned Parenthood is a charnel house.
Is there truly a “need for abortion?” Need? They cry when puppies are euthanized, because that’s inhumane. But they need legalized infanticide?
Ah puppies are cute, but children? Children might be inconvenient. So women need choice. It’s for their health.
