Instead, they nibble around the edges by feeding the American people the Planned Parenthood narrative that (1) only a very small percentage of what they do is abortion related, and (2) if Planned Parenthood went away women’s healthcare would be jeopardized.
And why shouldn’t the media push the Planned Parenthood since the bloody organization rewards the media for reporting favorably about the organization?
