[Ed. – How many errors can you find in her statement?]
Former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards made a crazy accusation in a new interview with Salon.
- It does seem to me that there has been an escalation of these kinds of attacks on nonprofits like Planned Parenthood. What do you think accounts for that?
- I don’t exactly know what accounts for it. Obviously, there were a couple of groups that specialize in this. I think that one of the things that I see on the right is they are so much more willing to lie, cheat, steal, deceive, break the law — tactics that frankly we don’t use in the progressive community. I do think that they have that advantage. The other is, they’ve got a lot of money. People who really probably could care less about the issue, but have complete focus on undermining any progressive institution that has either capacity or political power.
But a quick search finds that Planned Parenthood has done all of these multiple times under her leadership. In fact the Planned Parenthood abortion business right now is under investigation at the federal level for potentially illegally selling the body parts of aborted babies.
