Here is your laugh for the day. The CEO of the Planned Parenthood abortion business claims it is nonpartisan even though it spent tens of millions of dollars supporting the failed presidential candidacy of proportion candidate Hillary Clinton.
The Planned Parenthood abortion company is doing everything possible to rehabilitate its image as anything but an abortion giant in advance of potential Congressional votes to defund it.
In an appearance late last week on MSNBC, Cecile Richards claimed that somehow defunding the abortion company would hurt women’s health care even though Planned Parenthood has been exposed in recent videos as not providing prenatal care and only providing ultrasounds in preparation for abortions.
Here are her comments:
MIKA BRZEZINSKI, MSNBC: What do you make of this new administration? This new president? And would you meet with him? Or Ivanka who will be closely involved in women’s issues?
CECILE RICHARDS, PLANNED PARENTHOOD: Well we definitely are hoping that they will look at the important decisions that have to be made about women’s health care including Planned Parenthood. I know that the president himself during the campaign said favorable things about the millions of women who are helped by Planned Parenthood.
I think the important thing here and again I hope the administration maybe is looking at this is, for women this is basic health care. This is not a political statement. And if we really want to do something to build on the progress of reducing unintended pregnancy, reducing even the abortion rate in the United States, reducing teen pregnancy we should actually double down on family planning, including access to Planned Parenthood.
BRZEZINSKI: But you realize you have to cut a deal of some sort with this new administration in some way? Would you come to the table?
RICHARDS: We’re always at the table. I mean we talk to everybody. I mean because Planned Parenthood, we’re non-partisan. We believe the most important thing is is that women in this country get access to the health care that they need.Website: lifenews.com
