…that within three years of Donald Trump’s election we would see this:

The Planned Parenthood abortion business announced today it will officially withdraw from the Title X program — costing it $60 million in taxpayer funds because it refuses to follow a new Trump administration rule that requires it to segment out its abortion business from legitimate health care if it wants federal funding under the program.

Because the abortion giant is withdrawing from Title X, the $60 million in taxpayer dollars i received annually can be redistributed to groups that engage in legitimate women’s health care.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday rejected a request from more than 20 states, Planned Parenthood and the American Medical Association to block new pro-life rules that Planned Parenthood is refusing to follow. Leading pro-life groups have praised the Trump administration for prioritizing women’s health ahead of abortion.

…they would have called you at best delusional and at worst insane.

Let’s also remember that before this Planned Parenthood funding was saved by a Republican Senate that had the chance to defund them but refused to do so, leaving it up to President Trump to do the heavy lifting.

All last week you haven’t been able to miss planned parenthood ads talking about detecting cancer in a woman and her life being saved. Unfortunately those cries of “millions of women in this country are gonna lose their healthcare access–not to abortion services–to basic family planning, you know, mammograms” have collided with reality:

Liveaction shot this video and Andrew Breitbart is promoting it. If you want to know why the left hates Andrew Breitbart so much this is it.

Considering he is willing to say this aloud:

“You probably don’t hear a lot of people talking about this,” Cain said. “When Margaret Sanger – check my history – started Planned Parenthood, the objective was to put these centers in primarily black communities so they could help kill black babies before they came into the world.”

“It’s planned genocide,” Cain claimed.

“It’s carrying out its original mission,” he continued. “I’ve talked to young girls who go in there, and they [Planned Parenthood] don’t talk about how you plan parenthood. They don’t talk about adoption as an option. They don’t say, ‘Well, bring your parents in so we can sit down and talk with you, and counsel with you before you make this decision.’”

This is a basic truth, it’s a reason why the lonely conservative considers Cain a favorite, and I must say the willingness to say an unpopular truth very much appeals to me.

…about appearances of bias:

Conan: Finally, several of you wrote during yesterday’s show about PP, about the conflict over what percentage of the agency’s clients receive abortions. We’ve asked NPR’s heal policy correspondent Julie Rovner to join us again. Julie, always nice to have with you us.… And we heard two figures from opposing sides yesterday, 3% and 10%, who’s right?

Rovner: Well, the conflict is really that PP keeps its statistics according to the percent of those services that are provided, not according to how many people get what. So it turns out that there are – that indeed, abortions are 3% of the services provided, although – and that was what, I think, Sarah Stoesz from PP kind of misspoke when she said it was 3% of patients who come in get abortions.

It is actually a little bit closer to the 10% that Marjorie Dannenfesler suggested, because there are about 3 million patients who come in. There are about 300,000 abortions provided.

The hook, just 24 hours earlier they promoted the very same 3% figure. Quite a coincidence, or as Jill Stanek puts it:

Perhaps James O’Keefe’s release yesterday of damaging investigative videos against National Public Radio (read more here, here, and here) had nothing to do with it.

Or perhaps a desperate NPR is suddenly trying to appear more fair and balanced in the face of potentially losing $90 million in taxpayer funding.

Yup I can’t see why we would think that NPR is in damage control mode.

I guess when you are fighting for limited federal dollars, some alliances are just too expensive to worry about.
