Yesterday the Huffington Post ran a story about Planned Parenthood clinics being targeted by suspected members of an anti-abortion group (Live Action) hoping to obtain (or fabricate?) video showing illegal activities. Not to be missed was this declaration from National Right to Life President Carol Tobias, who is concerned about sex-selective abortion in the US:
“In 2010, more than 9 out of 10 PPFA’s services going specifically to pregnant women were abortion. Roughly half of those abortions are performed on unborn girls. That’s the real war on women.” [emphasis added]
Really!? And this intellectual powerhouse is their president! Doesn’t she realize roughly half of all babies conceived are female and therefore the law of averages says roughly half of all abortions will be females?
This Saturday, April 28, there will be rallies across the country to protest minds like this and the legislation driven by them. Find one near you and tell these people how you feel about their turning back the clock on science, research, medicine, law, and women’s rights. This idiocy cannot stand!
