Is it possible to be a liberal and not lie? It seems not. Listen to what Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richard has to say about what would happen if federal funds were cut off to the nation's biggest abortion mill.
Richards looks like such a nice lady, but looks sure can be deceiving. We all knew she was lying through her teeth, and the phone calls proved that to be the case. But now, we have further proof in the Susan G. Komen Foundation situation in which we were originally told that the organization would cut off funds to PP. The Komen Foundation claimed that they were denying funds because PP does not do mammograms.
What a shock! Cecile Richards caught lying. Who would have thought it possible?
Of course, liberals screamed and threatened the organization, as they always do, and now the foundation has caved to their demands. The Left will not sit back and watch a free ticket to kill more babies be denied this horrible abortion mill. Abortion is and always has been the crown jewel in their leftist agenda.
Read from Weekly Standard, but keep in mind that Komen hadn't yet caved when this article was written.
After Lying About Providing Mammograms, Planned Parenthood Outraged That Breast Cancer Charity Cuts Off Grants
"Last spring, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards went on CNN and claimed that if Congress cut off funding to Planned Parenthood "millions of women are going to lose access, not to abortion services, to basic family planning, you know, mammograms." But as pro-life activist Lila Rose documented in a video, Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms.
This story is worth recalling in light of the news this week that the Susan G. Komen foundation, one of the nation's largest breast cancer charities, has cut off funding (more than $600,000) to Planned Parenthood. Cecile Richards wrote that the foundation's decision to 'end its support of lifesaving breast cancer screening at Planned Parenthood health centers comes as a blow to women across America.'
But as Nancy Brinker, founder and CEO of Komen foundation, says in a video, Komen came out with a new set of standards this year designed to free up dollars for 'higher impact programs.'
'Wherever possible, we want to grant to the provider that is actually providing the lifesaving mammogram,' she said. "
What's particularly disturbing is the fact that Komen is a breast cancer charity which donates to PP, especially since evidence shows that abortion increases the likelihood of breast cancer. How does that make any sense?
