Donald Trump Defends Planned Parenthood!
Donald Trump just did himself in with a large segment of potential voters like me -- pro-life conservatives.
I've been defending him, but this massive stupidity is too much to swallow. No, sir, abortion (and selling baby body parts) is the greatest part of PP's income (aside from stealing from taxpayers). They provide NO services to women that aren't provided by local health clinics who often do it more cheaply. Call up your local PP and find out what they charge for a pap smear and a mammogram. Oops, I forgot, they don't do mammograms. They just lie about it. They also enable statutory rape and child sex trafficking. So what exactly are the great ways they "service women," Mr. Trump?
As for the sham that abortion is only a "small part" of their business, they play that shell game by counting every appointment, every phone call, every birth control prescription, etc. as a separate item of business. If you break things down by abortion income compared to total "clinic" income, you get a more realistic picture. In 2012 51% of PP's income came from abortion. According to a 2014 report from STOPP, some affiliates in California get 86% of their income from abortion. Not too surprising when you consider that PP performs over a third of the abortions in the U.S. That's a lot of moola, especially when, after you kill the kids, you sell their bodies piece by piece for $75 to $100 a part.
Sorry, Donald, I've given you the benefit of the doubt on your pro-life "conversion," but it looks now like one more mask from the political costume closet. Anybody who supports the monsters at Planned Parenthood (and I do mean monsters after watching the videos from the Center for Medical Progress), should not get a single vote from a pro-life citizen!
