Biden: Planned Parenthood ‘Under Law Cannot Perform Any Abortion;’ Planned Parenthood: We Did 985,731 In 3 Years By Terence P. Jeffrey October 15, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - Vice President Joe Biden said at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse on Friday that Planned Parenthood “under law cannot perform any abortion.”

Planned Parenthood itself has published fact sheets indicating that it did 985,731 abortions in just the three years from 2008 through 2010. These included 324,008 abortion in 2008, 332,278 abortions in 2009, and 329,445 abortions in 2010.

Biden made his remark in response to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney position that he would defund Planned Parenthood.

“And now these guys pledge that they are going to defund Planned Parenthood, which under law cannot perform any abortion,” said Biden. “You heard it last night again.”

Biden may have confused whether Planned Parenthood can legally perform abortions with whether it can legally use the federal subsidies it receives to directly fund an abortion.

A Congressional Research Service report published on Aug. 28 said that the federal government gives Planned Parenthood about $66 million per year in Title X “family planning” grants. The law prohibits recipients from using Title X money for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. However, Planned Parenthood and other organizations that receive federal subsidies under Title X can take the federal money and do abortions at the same time as long use other dollars—not the dollars they got from the federal government--to pay for an actual abortion.

“PPFA and its affiliates receive about $66 million in annual Title X funding, according to the PPFA Washington Office,” the Congressional Research Service reported.

That's like giving me ten dollars and saying I can't spend it on lunch. So I shove it my wallet, take a twenty out for lunch and spend it instead. Unless the Title X money was larger than Planned Barrenhood's entire non-abortion budget, their accountants can keep the money separate even as they have more than ever to perform abortions.

Biden twisting the truth to cover for his lies --- he knows they go to fund the doctors that do the abortions. He's a lying liar that works for the liar-in-chief Obama.

This just shows that Biden does not understand a whit about the controversy over funding Planned Parenthood. This is a huge issue and yet he shows no responsibility for getting even the most fundamental facts straight.

“This just shows that Biden does not understand a whit about the controversy over funding Planned Parenthood.”

Or, he’s a pathological liar working for a pathological liar.

Technically true. Depends on your definition of Planned Parenthood.

A corporation does not perform abortions. Doctors hired for that purpose do.

Good point. Is this a case of money laundering prohibited by RICO?
