CNS Still Falsely Implying That Government Money Pays For Abortions At Planned Parenthood
Topic: CNSNews.com

CNSNews.com has long cranked out highly biased reporting that smears Planned Parenthood. One of its favorite tricks is to falsely imply that federal money pays for abortions there.

CNS performs that dishonest trick again in a Jan. 14 article by Barbara Boland:

Planned Parenthood’s net revenue increased 5% to total of $1.21 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013, according to its new Annual Report 2012-2013, and about 45% of that revenue--$540.6 million--was provided by taxpayer-funded government health services grants.

In the same report, Planned Parenthood said that in the year that ended on Sept. 30, 2012 it did 327,166 abortions.

Nowhere does Boland feels the need to mention that no federal money pays for abortions at Planned Parenthood because it's prohibited under the Hyde Amendment, and she makes no effort to prove that any non-federal government money does. Instead, she allows the juxtaposition to imply something she can't prove.

That's sloppy and slanted reporting. But that's how CNS rolls.
