Earlier this week, in a seemingly absurd statement, Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards wrote that “every person has the right to live.” Given the lethal work her organization does, her supposed defense of the right to life is laughably ironic.

This week, Planned Parenthood finally released its 2015-2016 annual report — about five months later than they were expected to.

Ron Wyden, D-Ore., praises the women’s health and abortion provider for leading significant changes in women’s health and civil rights, being at the forefront of social change and playing a major role in increasing access to abortion, contraception and sex education. “It also calls for an end of efforts to strip federal funds from the group, which Republicans in Congress tried hard to do last year
Ted Cruz is on a mission: Take the bust honoring Margaret Sanger out of the taxpayer-financed Smithsonian museum. Leftists who think nothing about removing the name of Andrew Jackson or Thomas Jefferson, on the grounds they were racists, are strangely silent on the woman who believed giving birth control to the inferior races would prevent the better sorts from being overrun.
