Live Action Shreds Democrat Lies Again

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/30


“If you cut Planned Parenthood off from Medicaid funding, you take away well woman care from poor women.” That’s the Democrat/Planned Parenthood lie. And Live Action does what it does best: A barely undercover operation proving the Democrat/Planned Parenthood lie to be just that.

Ed Morrissey has the story. Do read the whole thing, but here is a snippet:

Be sure to read Live Action’s fact-check of Planned Parenthood’s claims in Indiana. PP claims 9300 Medicaid patients in Indiana, which is less than 1% of all Medicaid patients in the state. They have 28 locations in Indiana, which would be 3.5% of all qualified Medicaid providers in the state if Planned Parenthood still qualified. Those 28 clinics performed 5,580 abortions last year, which comes to 200 per clinic, or darned near one a weekday in each clinic — and over half of all abortions performed in Indiana in 2010. It doesn’t appear that non-abortion work is so significant that it can’t get absorbed by non-abortionists in the vicinity, as even Planned Parenthood clinics themselves point out to callers.

There are more non-abortion well-woman care clinics in Indiana than there are Planned Parenthood abortion mills in Indiana. There is no need for a woman to go to Planned Parenthood for well-woman care, because there are plenty other places a woman can go. Places that accept Medicaid.

There goes another Leftist lie down the drain.
