Why is Planned Parenthood losing public support and funding? Well, instead of making a logical case for their receipt of taxpayer money, they are choosing to engage in a despicable attack on right-to-life advocates. Just four days ago Planned Parenthood affiliate chairman Richard Solomon wrote a piece filled with false stereotypes and accusations:
“The fight, then, isn’t really about abortion. It’s about controlling the sexuality of poor and middle-class women by punishing them if they dare to be sexually active and find themselves with an unintended pregnancy.”
How bizarre is that?
The reason why we speak up for the unborn children and want to defund Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in the U.S. is because we want to control the sexuality of poor people? Are you kidding me? If this is the great argument that they choose to wield against us then they are in a lot of trouble.
Planned Parenthood refuses to debate the justification of the actual act of abortion because they know they would lose. Instead they try to win with underhanded attacks on the motives and character of their opponents. It is despicable and dishonest tactic.
NOTE: Richard Solomon is chairman of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund of Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo Counties, Inc.
