Clinton Tweets on Planned Parenthood’s 100th Birthday: “That’s Worth Celebrating”


Yesterday was Planned Parenthood’s 100th birthday, and unsurprisingly, Hillary Clinton and her campaign were eager to celebrate with the abortion giant:

Clinton also tweeted out an ad slamming Donald Trump and Mike Pence for pledging to defund Planned Parenthood:

One statistic the ad neglected to mention: 323,999. That was the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood in 2014, the most recent year for which records are available — more than one abortion every two minutes.

Since the legalization of abortion after Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood has proven to be very efficient at ending unborn lives — nearly 7 million in all. Perhaps the Clinton campaign simply forgot to include those numbers?

In any case, for more reasons to “celebrate” Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary — including the interesting background of its eugenicist founder, Margaret Sanger, whom Hillary Clinton said she admires “enormously” — be sure to read Jon Schweppe’s recent piece “honoring” the abortion giant here.
