Progress Ohio has accused Ohio’s leading Republicans and others of continuing their assault on Planned Parenthood with lies and widely discredited videos, selectively spliced to make it appear as if the health care provider illegally profits from the sale of fetal tissue. This post will try to supply unedited versions of the videos and let you decide for yourself. From 7/14 , 7/21 , 7/28 , and 8/6 .
After watching these disturbing videos we need to ask who is selling lies – Progress Ohio or Center for Medical Progress? Also, should Planned Parenthood, whose main mission seems to be to kill babies, be called a health care provider? Last question, with Obamacare requiring insurance to pay 100% of women’s health screenings (and everyone is required to have insurance), why is it necessary to fund this entity?

Surprisingly, The American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, and Susan G. Komen all donate money directly to Planned Parenthood. Fannie Mae is also a direct contributor to Planned Parenthood. Melissa Quinn of The Daily Signal compiled a list of 41 companies that donate directly to Planned Parenthood. Along the same general subject, Kelsey Harkness of The Daily Signal reported on pro-life leaders who say Planned Parenthood openly targets the Black community.
