"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Planned Parenthood Scandal in Indiana | Verum Serum

This has been brewing for a while. About two weeks ago, Lila Rose released a tape of an undercover sting operation she performed at an Indiana PP office. In the tape, she tells a counselor she is 13 and is pregnant by an older man. This is statutory rape under Indiana law, but the PP counselor doesn’t want to hear about the man’s age. She then advises Lila to cross state lines to Illinois and lie about the situation in order to procure an abortion which would be illegal in Indiana.
Once exposed, Planned Parenthood claimed it was “deeply concerned” about this incident of lawbreaking at one of their facilities. They promptly fired the woman in the video and promised their own investigation. Your basic corporate CYA
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Just an observation:
The Right has simply adopted the tactics of the Left. PP is being beaten in a coordinated effort to discredit it among tens of millions of Americans. This is not a just one battle. This is a battle which is part of a campaign which in turn is part of a very long war that will continue into the indefinite future.
