I don’t know about you, but I’m still chafing in disgust over the speedy wimp-out of the Komen Foundation under pressure from the shrill, screaming Liberal Left who think Planned Parenthood is some version of [not God’s…they have little use for Him] gift to women. It isn’t. That’s because, apparently, all they ‘fund’ is abortions.
Now before you quit reading, Liberal Leftie, listen up.
Their claim to provide thousands of mammograms and breast screens, etc. is almost impossible for them to back up. In fact, the very reason there is a pending Congressional investigation of the organization is the inability of a suspicious Republican Senator’s female staffers to locate one local Planned Parenthood site which offered these services! Not one!
Their claim to provide numerous health services to poor women is also hard to support, for everything they claim to offer—except abortion—is covered by health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or local-state-federal Health Departments.
Who, then, are they serving “women’s health” to? If these “irreplaceable health services” exist, why can’t those who are diligently searching for procedures (other than abortions) find them? Anywhere? Apparently searches and investigations are unable to find what P.P. claims they offer so ‘freely’ to ‘the poor.’
They should be investigated, and all signs indicate that whether an investigation starts out as ‘criminal’ or ‘informational,’ if Congress does its job with due diligence, it probably would become criminal. Seemingly, Planned Parenthood is —like its umbrella, ACORN—one of the slickest gravy trains for the corrupt ever devised by the greed of man. (Or woman!)
In addition, not only could no P.P. site be found where a woman could actually get a mammogram, but by promoting/performing same-day, walk-in abortions-on-request, they are actually increasing women’s risk of developing breast cancer because there is a proven link between the two.
Having an abortion increases a girl or woman’s likelihood of developing breast cancer, regardless of family history, etc. The organization in effect lies to susceptible teens and women by withholding this cancer link, just as it provides nothing but subterfuge when asked for records, financial or otherwise. It wouldn’t do for the likes of Perry Mason to investigate it!!
Now, where did I hear this “rest of the story”? On American Family Radio…you know, part of Hilary’s “vast Right-wing conspiracy”!! But doubters, you can call and try to schedule a mammogram with P.P., as the Senator’s female staff attempted to do, without success.
Just pose as a poor female in need of a free mammogram (paid for now to the tune of $700,000 by the Komen Foundation), and see whether you have any luck.
Would that we had even one network reporting “The Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth.” No rants, no ravings…just Truth.
We seldom hear “the rest of the story,” as Paul Harvey used to say. It’s total-slant-Right (FOX) or total-slant-Left (MSNBC) or inconsistently wavering between the extremes (CNN)… but never news for news’ sake, free of bias or deliberate, skew-causing omissions.
Not only do the media not trust us to make informed decisions; they don’t want us to. In fact, they make it nearly impossible to be informed by withholding the very information that would allow an informed citizenry.
It was bad enough in 2007-8; it’s exponentially worse today. Why doesn’t anyone ‘protest’ that? Boycott the journalism schools?
Have a good week!
