Fox Falsely Claims IN Anti-Planned Parenthood Bill Is About Ending "Government Funding For Abortion" (http://mediamatters.org/research/201104300010)


Fox & Friends Saturday recently claimed that Republican Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will sign a bill that "strip[s] Planned Parenthood of government funding for abortions." In fact, Indiana and federal law already prohibit federal Medicaid funds from paying for abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or a threat to the life of a pregnant woman, and the bill will actually cut off government funding for Planned Parenthood of Indiana (PPIN) to provide basic women's health and birth control services.

Fox News: We report (the hyper-partisan GOP narrative)... You decide (on which talking points to regurgitate at the water cooler)...

Let me explain this so that even YOU can understand.


Fox New is 100 % accurate.

Planned parenthood has $100 from it's own operations none of it is used for abortions.

The government comes in and gives them another $100 - freeing up the original $100 to use for abortions.

That $100 from the government was used to allow $100 to be used for abortions.
