CNS Misleads Again on Planned Parenthood, Abortion

As it is wont to do, misled about Planned Parenthood, falsely implying yet again that federal money given to Planned Parenthood pays for abortions.

Edwin Mora writes in a Feb. 28 CNS article: "In its most recent annual report, Planned Parenthood said it took in $349.6 million in government funds in fiscal 2008. That same year, the organization says, it performed 324,008 abortions."

In fact, as we've previously noted, the federal Hyde Amendment prohibits federal funding for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to preserve the life of the mother. The federal funding given to Planned Parenthood goes toward reproductive health services. Mora made no mention of this fact.
