Fox News Shilling For Planned Parenthood?
America's Conservative News ^ | 08/24/2012 | America's Conservative News

Posted on 08/25/2012 3:19:50 PM PDT by ElIguana

Just in case you missed it, Fox News Anchor Anchor Martha MacCallum and Judge Andrew Napolitano actually tried to tell the Fox News viewing audience that the largest single abortion provider in the United States and the world, Planned Parenthood, doesn't do abortions.

Covering the effort on the part of the State of Texas to defund Planned Parenthood, MacCallum turned to Napolitano and said: “So judge... they don’t perform abortions at Planned Parenthood,” and Napolitano responded, “Correct."

You can access the video here, assuming it is still available (the statement appears 35 seconds into the video), but unfortunately for MacCallum and Napolitano, the facts directly contradicts MacCallum's idiotic statement and Napolitano's false affirmation.

Planned Parenthood is not only the largest abortion provider in the country but, contrary to what Planned Parenthood would have the American public believe, abortion is its raison d'etre. LifeNews.com confirms that Planned Parenthood affiliates performed 329,445 abortions in 2010 and provided prenatal care to only 31,098 women in the fiscal year ending in June of 2010.

Moreover, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America's (PPFA) Annual Report for the year ending in June of 2009 shows that PPFA took in 1.1 Billion dollars (that's Billion with a "B") in revenues and accrued expenses of 1.037 Billion dollars. Additionally, the organization started the year with over 1 Billion dollars in net assets, but due to losses on "investment income," only finished the year with slightly under 995 Million dollars in net assets.

The Annual Report for the year ending in June of 2009 also confirms that approximately 363.3 Million dollars (or approximately 33 percent of the organization's 1.1 Billion dollar budget) came from government grants, 209 Million dollars (or approximately 19 percent of the organization's revenue) came from private gifts, and the majority of the remaining income came from the services PPFA provides at its "facilities" across the country... not a bad haul for a not-for-profit organization.

Makes me laugh when I hear some say FOX is conservative, it;s far from it.

Hannity to all the others are either establishment figures with their liberal or estbalishment guests .
I see now Peggy Noonan is back on spew her snotty nosed estbalishment elitist views.

FOX hired with help from Megyn Kelly a pro homo agenda, media matters woman named sally Kohn on top of that.

What FOX and their talking heads care about is not paying as much taxes or if a policy affects them.
They’ve also pushed the homosexual agenda and now lie about planned parentshood. Ever noticed no one eevr mentions the homosexual agenda or any conservative social issues, hell the homostapo is using NAZI thuggery right now and nothing from one network

After the way they treated Newt then they an piss off.

FOX conservative, not a chance.

O.T. (sorry):

California just scored 10 runs in the bottom of the 6th inning to come back from 15-5 down and send the Little League W.S. USA championship game into extra innings against Tennessee - tied 15 to 15. (on ABC)

This is a bold faced lie!

I can’t believe Napolitano said that. He KNOWS better.

As for the bimbo...doesn’t she have a staff that researches stuff for her?

Technically they don't perform abortions. They're just one of the biggest proponent and referral agencies. (Open to hearing of documented exceptions). It's best to be truthful and accurate about these things.

That’s because those that shoved Romney down our throats are also supporters of Planned Parenthood and all that they do.

I watched the entire link. Like I said...it’s a LIE. Napolitano and the bimbo are lying through their pearly white teeth.

I wonder what their motive is?

That’s BS.

Planned Parenthood is the biggest, most profitable abortion provider in the nation.

They have their killing centers listed on their site. Go here: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-center/

Napolitano is a talking head instead of an actual judge because he was corrupt and had to resign the bench. He is Truther filth.

You are incorrect. It is true that not all Planned Parenthood offices perform abortions. Those that do not have the facilities refer their clients to their preferred abortionists, and I expect get a kickback for their referral. But it is a baldfaced lie for Fox reporters to claim that PP does not do abortions. In fact, just last month a patient died from her 2nd semester abortion from the Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Chicago.

Exactly where do you get that information from!??
So they do not own the abortion equipment & employ the staff?? The abortions do not occur in their buildings, on their property??

We might be arguing the wrong thing here, and losing sight of the real issue. NO MATTER WHAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES (OR DOESN’T DO) what possible justification is there for them to receive government funding??? The answer is none. Defuse the ideological argument - there is no reason to fund them, period.

FOX never covers the homostapo, gun rights to an extent or even killing babies.

Hannity , O.R are no where near conservatives, Judge reminds me of a dirty old perverted man playing an old time gangster and the only person I know of who is conservative is Eric Bolling.

Planned Parenthood has most DESPICABLY tagged onto the pro-life Crisis Pregnancy Center’s website just recently.

If you Google “crisis” this ad pops up- once you click on “Crisis Pregnancy Center” Crisis Pregnancy Center | plannedparenthood.org

PP is using CPCs name and words/terminology from their website to reshape their pro death message. This is a new tactic from PP, please pray for wisdom and insight as to how wisely deal with and overcome this new deception. Crisis Pregnancy Center do a wonderful job of helping women and providing life choices!

the left use such dirty tactics and the media covers ofr them and our side says NOTHING

When I say our side I mean GOP, most of talk radio and that includes Hannity, Rove etc

It’s clearly a baby and if a guy miurders a pregnant woman he is charged for two murders but for some stupid ignorant reason it’s OK for a woman to kill her own baby.

If the elft wants the poplation reduced like they do then they should stop having babies

I watch now national geographic, history DIY never the HGTV as they push the homo crap , Animal and watch many documentaries on netflix.

Hell even the history channels cannot get it right all the time but FOX has become a joke, their pundits from O.R Hannity
The five which is damn awful.
Shep pansy smith
Geraldo drama queen and a liar making out he;s in war zones
Kilmeade like a child
Gretchen carlson who moans about PC but herself goes all in a tizzy when they make fun of blones, women and her telling us how she makes he kids wear helmets to ride a little electric car etc is a joke
Baer, Charles K, etc are just out and out elitist establisment boring\\
Megyn Kelly a pro homo all about her has become a joke

I was no big fan of Beck but at least he had te balls to report on how the left do their corruption and how he called them out was a damn sight better than the crap called the five
Hiring sally Khon the homosexual woman who was at media matters , ANSWER

It;s all a joke over there now and they never once report on the homostapo, how the homostapo has got into schools etc

Just last night we had friends over and I was telling them about certain issues around the country, how the homostapo is suing, brainwahsing, how the left are doing fraud and most of them had never veen heard of fast and furious, they thought it was a movie, Solindra[sp], Terry being shot, ACORN etc

So long as the media covers for the left and the poeple remain ignorant then the left will always have power and that is why they have no desire to increase education or do anything about the borders, illegals, or even the media

In Nevada, PP cannot perform abortions at their sites, but they refer and are allowed to have pamphlets in the high schools, something pro life clinics are not allowed to do.

I have no idea what percentage of abortions are due to PP referrals or if they are given a kickback when they send someone to a clinic.

This is all semantics, word games. PP is the abortion organization. They are Abortions R Us.

certainly agree with all you posted....
there was a day I was addicted to FOX NEWS, but NO LONGER...

It is sad how the MSM treats us American voters by only telling the obama liberal side of each story..

BUT...I really think the people are waking up to what has happened to our once Great powerful Nation....

soon I will turn 70 and so glad my child rearing days are behind me, I often wonder how we ever managed as well as we did...today we struggle harder than we ever have had too...I pray for better days and a Better future for the young people of today.

Mea Culpa. I thought you meant the story was a lie... apologies. I can understand MacCallum drinking the Kool-Aid but I’m with you Napolitano should know better.

And technically grocery stores doesn’t provide food, they simply act as a marketplace for the producers and growers. ;).

Planned Parenthood is the primary link in the supply chain of the abortion business. Providing abortion is their business.

“and I expect get a kickback for their referral”

The last link in the post goes to PP’s annual report. I believe on page 13 you can actually see the actual dollar amount PP received from its local affiliates.

My point is they probably have fine print that technically puts some distance between themselves and the actual abortion, even though the abortions take place at many/most of ther locations; ElIguana’s analogy seems good. I don’t consider Juge Napolitano of FOX News to be shills for Planned Parenthood. The organization’s reputation as it connects to abortion could not be more clear.
