The art of lying perfected

Y'know, it's not just Planned Parenthood's genetically-ingrained dishonesty that bothers me ... it's that their lies can be so stunningly audacious as to be satanic.

1) Planned Barrenhood has not lost all funding from Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  Three major grants are still in the pipeline, and some local units are still getting funds.  Nevertheless, as soon as the news was released that SGK had changed their grant policy, PB zombies immediately started throwing money at them as though the organization were going to go broke next week (in fact, this non-profit organization has been earning hundreds of millions in non-profits for some years).

2) Planned Barrenhood does not do mammograms.  They have never done mammograms.  The only tests PB does at their offices are the manual tests women can do in their own homes by themselves.  So when Dr. Kathy Plesser, who sits on the medical advisory board of SGK, tearfully says in HuffPo, "Eliminating this funding will mean there’s no place for these women to go. Where are these women to go to have a mammography? Do they not deserve to have mammography?", she is either lying or has been deceived.  "The $600,000 that Komen donated annually to the organization provided underserved women with free and low-cost breast exams" that didn't cost the clinics a thing and that women can do without leaving their homes.

3) The women who frequent Planned Barrenhood are at graver risk for breast cancer from contraceptive pills and abortion than the normal population. Causal connections between breast cancer and both the pill and abortion have been well established by many studies; in fact, some people at American Right to Life suspect that the link between abortion and breast cancer may be part of SGK's separation from PB.  And yet, the myth of the "safe abortion" is so strong among the PB zombies that, as you can see to the right, the irony of PB even offering bare-minimum tests flies right by them ... not to mention the irony of PB getting grants to do something women themselves could do for free.

Now, I really don't think the PB zombies are attacking SGK because they care more about abortion than they do about breast cancer ... though they've proven that, given a choice between access and women's safety, women's safety comes in a distant second to them.  But you noticed that, because PB was the one losing money, all the pro-abort zombies automatically assumed they'd done so under pro-life pressure?  Despite everything PB has done to try and take the focus off their abortion activities, even their most rabid supporters end up making everything that happens to them about abortion.

And PB just smiles and sucks up another $800k they didn't have three days ago and didn't really need.  Not even the Jesuits in their glory days were as good at fundraising.
