A brand new widely touted USA Today/Suffolk University Poll claims that 65% of Americans support federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood’s abortion and murdered baby parts selling business. Or so the mainstream media would have you believe.
The Planned Parenthood propaganda machine in conjunction with the abortion industry’s most ardent leftist supporters in the mainstream media are out in full force today as Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, is called to account before Congress.
Delay, deflect, and deceive remains the mantra to keep the focus off of Planned Parenthood’s multi-million dollar abortion and baby organ harvesting business.
Based on the mainstream media echo chamber, one would be led to believe that the vast majority of America wants their tax dollars to subsidize and supplement an organization that performed nearly 330,000 abortions each and every year and has recently been exposed selling the body parts of those murdered babies to pad its bottom line.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
When you look at the USA Today Poll, it preyed on an uninformed electorate, merely asking, “Should all federal funding for Planned Parenthood be cut off?”
Yet, the fact is other recent polls in the last couple of months reveal that as many as 70% of Americans have heard “little” to “nothing at all” about Planned Parenthood’s baby part harvesting business.
Of course this becomes circular, as the same mainstream media that is reporting that a supposed mass majority of America favors funding Planned Parenthood has also engaged in a massive media blackout of coverage of the investigative videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s abhorrent behavior.
What you won’t read about in the mainstream media is the second part of a recent Reuters Poll. After first asking a similar question as the USA Today Poll and receiving a similarly high show of support for Planned Parenthood, the poll then goes a step further. From the Poll: “After the videos were described to poll respondents, 39 percent said Planned Parenthood should not receive government funding and 34 percent said federal dollars should continue.”
That’s right, support for federal funding of Planned Parenthood is cut almost in half when people actually understand what Planned Parenthood is doing.
In fact, another recent poll found that a massive 78% of Americans oppose federal funding for any organization involved in the sale of aborted babies’ body parts. But again, you won’t see that reported in the mainstream media either.
It undercuts their solid support for Planned Parenthood’s propaganda.
An increasing majority of America is pro-life. Earlier this month, a CNN poll reveled that 58% of Americans believe that abortion “should be illegal in most” cases.
Despite the mainstream media, the liberal elite, and Planned Parenthood’s best efforts, the American people aren’t buying it.
Yet, the sad reality is we are paying for it.
Our tax dollars continue to fund nearly half of Planned Parenthood’s billion-dollar budget, allowing the leading abortion provider in America to focus more of its resources to committing and promoting abortion.
However, that media stronghold is starting to crack. The Washington Post Fact Checker recently exposed Planned Parenthood’s “3%” lie. Yet, one article in a sea of deception is hardly adequate.
We must continue to hold the mainstream media liberal elite’s feet to the fire and expose Planned Parenthood’s flat out fallacies to the American people.
