In case you were under any illusions that Fox News is an infallible source of information for conservatives, please check out this segment from “America’s Newsroom,” featuring anchor Martha McCallum and Judge Andrew Napolitano. In it, they say what not even Planned Parenthood says about itself: that it doesn’t do abortions. According to LifeNews:
Anchor Martha MacCallum was conducting a report on the decision by a federal appeals court to allow Texas to continue its effort revoking taxpayer funds from the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
“So judge obviously there has been a lot of debate in this country over whether or not the federal government and states should fund Planned Parenthood because they do refer people to and give them counseling with regard to abortion. They don’t perform abortions at Planned Parenthood,” she said to Napolitano, who responded, “Correct.”
“So Planned Parenthood says that most of what we do is outreach to women who need cancer screenings and basic health care, OBGYN health care, we do not provide abortions, we do counsel people, and we do help them, if they say that that’s what they want to do, we help them get there,” MacCallum added.
What’s really funny is that during the segment, there was a box in the corner of the screen offering various “Fox Facts” about the subject of the report, one of which stated, “Abortions accounted for 3% of procedures done by Planned Parenthood affiliates.” Way to make your talent look like morons, Fox.
On page 6 of the 2009-10 annual report of Planned Parenthood, we read this:
For those who are pregnant, Planned Parenthood provides
referral for adoption (select affiliates)
midlife care, helping women manage the effects of menopause (select affiliates)
Well, at least that’s what I read. Martha McCallum and Andrew Napolitano may have been looking at the Urdu version, which could be different.
