A friend was kind enough to pass along a short online entry headlined, “It Takes a Village to Lobby: The Hypocrisy of Planned Parenthood.”
Since PPFA is never short on hypocrisy, I read only because my friend is choosy what she sends along. So, what is the hypocrisy? Maybe the best example ever.
In California, a state assemblyman introduced a bill (AB 1306 ) which, according to Jane Abel, would have provided women “with a pre-abortion counseling session informing them of possible psychological and physiological side-effects” of abortion. Needless to say, PPFA, which aborts over 332,000 babies each year, went to red alert.
On May 5 Planned Parenthood “took teens out of school for Teen Capitol Day in Sacramento” to lobby against the measure, she writes. However “Before the teens could be ferried to the state capital to fight against a bill that has the physical and mental well-being of women in mind, they, naturally enough, had to obtain the permission of their parents,” Abel writes here.
Kind of hard to miss the hypocrisy
