Limbaugh: ‘what is Planned Parenthood if not a death squad?’
LifeSiteNews ^ | 8/9/12 | Kathleen Gilbert

August 9, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Radio host Rush Limbaugh this week said that Democrats should take a harder look at their own sources of funding before they criticize the GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney for making his fortune as co-founder of asset management firm Bain Capital.

“So they say now in the Huffington Post that Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, way way back when it was originally founded, was seeded with money from Latin America deaths quads,” said the conservative radio guru August 8. “Well let me ask you a question. What’s the difference in that and the Democrats being underwritten by Planned Parenthood and NARAL?”

“If they’re not death squads, I don’t know what is. How many abortions every year, 1.73 million or something? ... What do you call Planned Parenthood if that’s not a death squad? And who - plenty can object, but who can disagree?”

The remarks came on the tail similar remarks from a North Carolina legislator who called Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, “murder for hire” in response to a campaign seeking to convince state lawmakers not to cut the group’s funding.

Planned Parenthood “deals out nothing but deception, death, personal devastation, and moral degradation,” said State Representative Larry Pittman in reply to a pre-written letter signed by a local woman and prepared by Planned Parenthood, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

“Never will I agree to give that bloody, indecent, immoral organization one penny. I will not be satisfied until it is outlawed,” said Pittman, who called Planned Parenthood “a murderous organization … getting wealthy on murder for hire.”

Planned Parenthood routinely downplays the role of abortion among its services, claiming that the procedure accounts for only three percent of services offered to women. However, critics have said that the group minimizes that number by separating various services performed during an abortion visit as different “services,” so that even for a patient who came solely for an abortion, the abortion would account for only a small percentage of the “services” listed.

In fact, abortion is the most lucrative service Planned Parenthood offers by a drastic margin, accounting for as much as 51 percent of its annual clinic income, or $150 million, according to calculations by the American Life League.

Former Planned Parenthood clinic worker Abby Johnson said she was turned off from the organization when she learned that, rather than aiming to reduce abortions through birth control, Planned Parenthood considered the procedure its “cash cow” and imposed abortion quotas for its clinics. The national organization recently made it mandatory for each of its affiliates to offer abortions in at least one of its facilities.

Pittman stood by his statements after he was contacted by the Tribune for further comment.

“To say that [Planned Parenthood] would try to reduce the incidence of abortion is like saying a baker would go around trying to get people to stop eating bread,” he said.

I believe Obama and like-minded death-cult followers use a ridiculous euphemism calling it "women's health".

Of course it's not healthy for the female nor the male baby.

But if they survive, Obama's anti-BAIPA in Illinois will be there to take care of that little problem, err, "punished with a baby".

Supply and demand.

Planned Barrenhood will close its doors just as soon as their customer base dries up.
