As Planned Parenthood continues to spread their galling abortion distortions on the Hill and beyond, we have compiled real facts and figures to hold them accountable for their misleading testimony.
Here are 9 important takeaways from today’s testimony:
1) Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards confirms that some Planned Parenthood affiliates sell the body parts of aborted babies.
In her testimony, Ms. Richards states, “Planned Parenthood is proud of its limited role in supporting fetal tissue research.”
Once again, Planned Parenthood is admitting to everything in the videos. Just as Ms. Richards did in her letter to Congress, she confesses to numerous things Planned Parenthood often tries to hide.
She has had numerous opportunities to refute the video footage of top-level Planned Parenthood executives negotiating prices of butchered baby body parts. She has not refuted this footage one time.
She has hidden behind stale talking points about legal loopholes, broad laws, etc. But she hasn’t denied that it happens.
And, in fact, she apologized for something about the videos, although in her testimony today, she once again was unclear about exactly what she was apologizing for.
2) Planned Parenthood clinics perform zero mammograms. None.
Congresswoman Mia Love and several of her colleagues questioned Ms. Richards about how many mammograms are performed annually by Planned Parenthood.
Cecile Richards once again reiterated: no Planned Parenthood clinics have mammogram machines.
Despite the claims of President Obama and other celebrity allies of Planned Parenthood, their clinics don’t provide mammograms.
3) Planned Parenthood Receives Taxpayer Subsidies, Throws Big Parties
The House Oversight Committee released a report this morning exposing Planned Parenthood for “lavish” travel and theme parties with names such as “Gathering of Goddesses and Gods.” The message from Chairman Chaffetz was a simple one – Planned Parenthood is able to raise a lot of money so why do they need federal subsidies?
Why do we give hundreds of millions every year when Planned Parenthood seems to have no money problems at all?
