http://prolifedallas.org) slams Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood in a response published in the Dallas Morning News.
Richards claims the PP lawsuit against Texas is not about PP.
Here is Karen's response:
According to Cecile Richards, the lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood against the Texas government “has never been about Planned Parenthood.”
This is nonsensical spin to the absurd. Cecile, it’s about Planned Parenthood. It’s about the challenged, now enforceable, law redirecting taxpayer funds away from Planned Parenthood and the truth lying behind its corporate veil. It’s about Planned Parenthood performing over 325,000 abortions last year, making up 51 percent of its clinic income. It’s about Planned Parenthood’s reported requirement that all of its affiliates perform abortions by 2013. It’s about the taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood facilities which do not perform abortions but nonetheless refer for abortions — to whom? Planned Parenthood. It’s about Planned Parenthood’s abortion and “family planning” facilities feeding off each other, operating in the same building and cross-marketing their “services” to the same customers. It’s about Planned Parenthood choosing to shut down its “health centers” while breaking ground on a $6.5 million abortion center in Fort Worth.
Ultimately, it’s about Planned Parenthood favoring its abortion business over the low-income women it claims to serve. Texas has had enough. No organization in the business of killing unborn children deserves a single penny of taxpayer funding — that’s Planned Parenthood, Cecile.
