Extreme Jeanne: Shaheen's radical abortion agenda

EDITORIAL


When New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen says "women's acess to health care," she means abortion.

When she says "healthcare providers", she means abortion clinics.

When she says, "fetal tissue research," she means body parts from babies aborted in Planned Parenthood clinics.

Shaheen trekked across Capital Hill last week to testify before a House committee investigating Planned Parenthood's sale of fetal body parts. She of course called for the hearing to shut down.

The U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives reported last week that several Planned Parenthood clinics used middlemen to get around a 1993 law prohibiting profiting from the sale of fetal tissue.

Shaheen isn't standing up for "women's access to health care." She's protecting Planned Parenthood's access to taxpayer funding. The notion that this money does not pay for abortions is a transparent fiction.

Shaheen also claimed that the videos bringing Planned Parenthood's barbaric practices to light were "highly edited" and "deceptive."

Yet the unedited videos, showing Planned Parenthood employees casually negotiating the sale of aborted fetuses, are available online if Shaheen had ever bothered to watch them.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood last week launched $400,000 in attack ads against Sen. Kelly Ayotte, who supports cutting off the organization from the federal Treasury.

Because one extreme New Hampshire senator backing their radical abortion agenda isn't enough.
