For those of you that heard Sally Ann Roberts interview this morning with Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, please understand something.  The Pence amendment is in no way intended to deny poor women access to basic healthcare.   

51% of Planned Parenthood clients in the Gulf Coast region, are on Medicaid.  There are lots of doctors that accept Medicaid.  Planned Parenthood is about ABORTION. 

I’ve heard the rhetoric, and the emotional pleas.   Don’t fall for it!  You heard from Cecile Richards that ‘not one dollar of federal funds is used for abortions’.  That is a lie.  Anyone that knows anything about accounting, knows it’s a line on the ledger, an accounting gimmick.  We pay for the buildings where abortions are performed.  We pay the salaries of clinic workers.  We pay the electric bill.  

It’s time to defund Planned Parenthood.
