    Re: Judge says Texas can't ban Planned Parenthood

    BTW Henrin, don't know if you know this but the judge in the OP did not stop the law in question from being permanently enforced. He just put a temporary injunction against it until it can be decided in a court of law if it is consitutional or not. I'm just suggesting that the "equality under the law" could be applied. Not whether it truely does apply or not.

    I agree, their stats generally are, but they omit pertinent stats.

    And no matter what percentages are offered about PP, it is a significant purveyor of abortions-on-demand.
    It is the single largest abortion provider in the US.

    I generally do accept their findings, but like I said earlier...their bias shows in what they choose to omit. For example, substantiation on a particular claim we've been discussing.

    The problem is, no-one has substantiated it. You just assume they did because they are PP. Blind faith.

    Sorry, but that's what I think of every time the 'guilt by association' issue comes up - and this is one of those times.

    Well, it's a bit of a stretch, but I get what you're saying. They are part of the larger organization though. My feeling is that with all the hoopla over PP, if their true goal was "health services" for women, they would sever ties with PP in order to continue their altruistic goals unabated.

    Yes, I'm sure many of McCarthy's targets were told basically the same thing.
