"Baby parts" sounds so scary (and evil)!

which is basically what they want to get out of people- an emotional response so that people will say, "OMG we must defund Planned Parenthood immediately!" Conveniently, right before next year's election.........

Considering that Indiana PP doesn't do the fetal tissue donation

I'm totally shocked (not that anything is going on with PP anyway)!

July 31, 2015

Has this group (or anybody else)

ever put out any REAL evidence that any money has changed hands in excess of the standard reimbursement rates? All we have are some doctored videos that purport to show PP officials discussing procedures and reimbursement rates that experts agree are typical for such donations. Also, you have to seriously question why, if this group was SO concerned about potential criminal and/or unethical activity occurring, that they didn't go immediately to the authorities with their "evidence"? This is a sham, plain and simple designed to gin up outrage to fan the flames of another round of attempts to defund PP right before next year's election, which is almost certainly doomed to failure (and will likely backfire if the Republicans attempt to shut down the government over it).

Q seems to be the only poll with the Republicans at any kind of advantage for next year's race.

All of the other polls show Hillary and/or Bernie safely over their would-be Republican rivals. At any rate, I wouldn't put much stock into many of these early polls, which mostly reflect partisans.

Well, this is discouraging (regarding Iran Deal)

Majority wants Congress to reject Iran deal

Right wing demagoguery seems to be winning at the moment about Iran.

The question

Of how low the Republicans will stoop to attack President Obama over the Iran deal has been definitively answered

How are they "helping the government distribute" birth control?

Health insurance PAYS for the drugs, it does NOT hand them out. *SMH*
