Watch Planned Parenthood’s President SHUT DOWN GOP Chair And His ‘Abortion Chart’

There is currently an assault on women’s reproductive rights in the United States. Right-wing “pro-life” conservatives don’t seem to think that women should have the ability to make medical decisions about their own bodies. These same conservatives are currently trying to defund Planned Parenthood, one of the leading resources for health in communities nationwide. Why? Because they are pushing propaganda videos claiming the community health center is “selling baby body parts.”

This is just their latest assault on women’s rights and they are willing to shut down the government over it.

However, during the Planned Parenthood hearing in front of the House Oversight Committee, Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, was quickly put in his place by Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.

Chaffetz was trying to show a chart that was utterly inaccurate. The chart depicted cancer screenings and prevention services going down, and abortions going up. The Congressman was trying to use the slide as some form of proof.

Richards says:

“You created this slide. I have no idea what it is.”

Chaffetz responds:

“Well, it is the reduction over the course of years – in pink, that’s the reduction in the breast exams – and the red is the increase in the abortions. That’s what’s going on in the organization.”

Richards then says that the chart “absolutely does not reflect what’s happening at Planned Parenthood.” However, Chaffetz tries to insinuate she’s lying and says, “You’re going to deny that…”

This is when Richards says:

“I’m going to deny this slide that you just showed me that no one has ever provided us before. We’ve provided you all the information about everything – all the services that Planned Parenthood provides. And it doesn’t feel like we’re trying to get to the truth here. You just showed me this.”

When Chaffetz tries to tell Richards that he pulled the numbers directly from Planned Parenthood corporate reports, she interrupts and says:

“Excuse me. My lawyers have informed me that the source of this is Americans United for Life which is an anti-abortion group so I would check your source.”

All Chaffetz could respond with was that they have to “get to the bottom of the truth on that.”

These Republicans and “pro-life” groups are pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes and hoping no one notices them altering videos or providing deceptive data. They seem to hate women that much.

Thanks to folks like Richards, these liars will be exposed time and time again for the frauds that they are.
