Well trust him to get on the bandwagon, outrage pushed to 11

We are wallowing in this moral swamp because the Supreme Court accelerated the desensitization of the nation by using words and categories about abortion the way infants use knives and forks — with gusto, but sloppily. Because Planned Parenthood’s snout is deep in the federal trough, decent taxpayers find themselves complicit in the organization’s vileness. What kind of a government disdains the deepest convictions of citizens by forcing them to finance what they see in videos — Planned Parenthood operatives chattering about bloody human fragments? “Taxes,” said Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., “are what we pay for civilized society.” Today they finance barbarism.

As media matters points out

Despite Will’s declaration that taxes “finance barbarism,” Planned Parenthood does not use any federal money for abortion procedures — it’s been unlawful for nearly 40 years.

This is the typicalright wing method of attack. Base your own lies on a deceptive series of faked and falsified video reports. No matter what the reality actually is, ignore it.Shame on the Washington Post for printing this type of fallacious opinion.

But Planned Parenthood cannot use the money it receives from the federal government for abortions anyway. According to the Department of Health and Human Service’s website, “by law, Title X funds may not be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” Medicaid funding is restricted by the Hyde Amendment to only abortion cases involving rape, incest or endangerment to the life of the mother. Some states use their own funds under Medicaid to go beyond that. Seventeen states and, until recently, the District of Columbia pay for “medically necessary” abortions, according to the Guttmacher Institute. The federal budget deal now bans Washington, D.C., from using its funds to pay for abortions.

Perhaps it is time for the Washington Post’s own fact checker to check the “facts” it publishes? George Will’s pants would make one hell of a pyrotechnic display, there are not enough Pinocchios in the world for his shtick.
