Planned Parenthood: "We're Mostly a Surgical Facility"

Lila Rose and her Live Action crew have done it again. While the mainstream media have all but ignored the story I’ve listened to a lot of conversation about this on the radio and read about it on blogs. One aspect of the story doesn’t seem to me to have received its due.

When Live Action called the abortion giant a woman named Samantha answered the phone and when asked about mammograms she did something completely surprising. She told the truth.

“We don’t…um… deal with the health side of it so much…we’re mostly a surgical facility.”

Ah, finally some truth from Planned Parenthood. That is the statement that tells all if you ask me. They don’t deal with health. They are an abortion facility. That’s what they do. We’ve all known it. And Live Action got them to admit it.

This admission flies in the face of their multi-million dollar p.r. campaign. This admission flies in the face of the hemming and hawing from the legislators refusing to defund Planned Parenthood because it might harm women’s health.

Planned Parenthood is of course focusing on what they actually meant when they said they offered mammograms. They call it a misunderstanding. Normal people call it a lie but talking about what they’re not is a side issue for me. This one Planned Parenthood employee inadvertently spoke the truth. She said they don’t deal with the health side of it so much.

This is what pro-lifers should pin on them. The entire purpose of funding them was a women’s health issue. This is why Planned Parenthood should lose federal funding because they’re not so into the health thing. They’re a surgical facility.

You can’t say you believe in funding abortionists but not abortion. Not anymore. I’m not sure you ever could.
