This video from the USA says about itself:
4 Janary 2010
From UltraViolet Action in the USA today:
The Senate has tried to defund Planned Parenthood again and again—but this time they used a special fast-track legislative process to ram the bill through with just 51 votes. And this bill could make it all the way to the president’s desk.
Since the release of heavily edited videos in July, six states have moved to defund Planned Parenthood.2 Ohio is pushing to become the seventh.3
And while President Obama has pledged to veto the Senate-passed bill, anti-choice Republicans are once again using fear of a government shutdown to push to defund Planned Parenthood nationally.4
To stop the war on Planned Parenthood, we need to make Republicans pay a political price for these attacks. If we don’t, the attacks will never stop. And if a bill like this hits the desk of a Republican president, it will become law.
Our secret weapon in the fight to save Planned Parenthood is that millions of women—1 in 5 across America—have visited a Planned Parenthood.5 That’s why, despite months of smears and discredited accusations, 6 in 10 Americans STILL oppose defunding Planned Parenthood.6
We’ve just released a hard-hitting ad with women who rely on Planned Parenthood talking about their experiences.7 We’re counting on your donation to help make sure as many people as possible see this video. Will you chip in $5?
Thanks for speaking out.

ACCUSED PLANNED PARENTHOOD SHOOTER INDICTED A federal grand jury has returned a 68-count indictment against Robert Dear, the man accused of shooting and killing three people and wounding nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 2015. [HuffPost]
PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUES OVER UNDERCOVER VIDEOS The civil suit accuses the anti-abortion group behind the videos of “violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and committing fraud, invasion of privacy, illegal secret recording and trespassing.” [Laura Bassett, HuffPost]
Once again, a gunman has killed people for political reasons. Once again, he is described in the mainstream media using words and phrases such as: deranged, mentally disturbed, homicidal, gunman, shooter, criminal, murderer, and lone wolf. He may have been all of that, but one key descriptive word is conspicuously missing from most of the commentary: terrorist. Killing people who don’t believe what you believe in order to further your political aims is, indeed, one of the definitions of terrorism. If the suspect involved had recently arrived here from Syria (or anywhere else in the Middle East, really), would the news networks be so cautious about calling him a “terrorist”? I seriously doubt it. In fact, if that were the case, he’d likely be quickly labelled an “Islamic terrorist”: here.
Abortion Providers Are Too Scared To Even Talk About Security: here.
A Texas grand jury investigating alleged misconduct by Planned Parenthood instead indicted two operatives of an anti-abortion group that created doctored videos of the organization last year, which they claimed showed representatives of the health provider selling aborted fetal tissue for profit. Planned Parenthood was cleared of any wrongdoing: here.
