USA Today Loves Planned Parenthood

Bravo to Indiana, and thank God for states like you, who recently stopped Planned Parenthood from receiving Medicaid funds. The Hoosier State apparently agreed with my point that when there’s poison in the water of PP’s services, you can’t fund them at all.

Today’s USA Today, however, disagrees. Reporter Douglas Stanglin defends the abortion giant because they also provide contraception services and STD care, but he masterfully evades the one crux of the issue – abortion:

The law effectively strips about 10% of the group’s total budget. It also cut roughly $150,000 in funding to Planned Parenthood for prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, The Star says.

The newspaper says 85,000 Hoosiers receive health services at the state’s 28 Planned Parenthood centers. Eight of those will close, including two in Indianapolis and clinics in Terre Haute and Muncie.

Planned Parenthood uses its Medicaid payments to provide services such as birth control, cancer screening and STD tests and uses patient fees and private donations to pay for abortions.

No word yet on whether Planned Parenthood has considered using “patient fees and private donations” to pay for anything other than killing the unborn.
