I'm sorry your mother's attempt at an unsafe abortion at home failed. Perhaps if she had had access to Planned Parenthood, she would have had an intelligent child further down the road.

People like this and the local Catholic nutjobs who protest Planned Parenthood in my city are the reasons why I'm giving money to them next month. They do a lot more good for women (and men; they do offer services for men too) than the women-as-incubator doctrine of the Bible ever has.

Abortion accounts for less than 3% of PP's operations.

Isn't there something in the Bible about "not bearing false witness"?

The phantom mammogram bit is another piece of misinformation that the anti-abortion crowd has latched onto and repeats endlessly because they are all as dumb as a bag of hammers.
As part of women's health screening Planned Parenthood does mammograms, only they don't own the x-ray machines or have radiologists on staff to read the x-rays either. What they do is what many doctors do, they give the patient a referral to go to a diagnostic imaging center and get the x-rays done there.
The fundies "discovered" this a couple of years ago and started crowing about how... "Planned Parenthood claims that it does mammograms but it doesn't. We have called all their offices locally to make an appointment for a mammogram and they all said that they don't do mammograms!!11!"
In other words it is nothing but a dishonest talking point based on willfully misunderstanding the facts.
Does Planned Parenthood actually do mammograms? No.
Can a low income woman go to Planned Parenthood and get a referral for a free or low cost mammogram at a diagnostic imaging center? Yes.

It wasn't taken out of context at all. He was still saying he'd force women to have the rapist's baby because a conception is a conception, and he doesn't give a damn what the means of conception was. Nobody ever said he was justifying rape or took it out of context. The true context of that statement is horrible enough on its own.

The Catholic Church may be the "whore of Babylon", and they're all going to Hell, but hey at least they hate Planned Parenthood too!

"We must get righteously indignant that this is going on and being paid for with our tax dollars."
You already are.
When are you going to get it through your head that it is illegal for tax dollars to be used to cover abortions.

Everytime they say fruit of the womb, I find myself wanting to cut apples and bananas out of my diet.

"Jewish by choice" yet trying to tell Xians what they should do? And of course completely, factually wrong, but what else is new with fundies?

Planned Parenthood offers phantom mammograms?
I've been looking for one of those for years. Now I know where I can get one.

The parade of lies perpetrated on a gullible public is all coming from your side, asshole, we want the public to be educated and informed about reality. The only thing you can expose about Planned Parenthood is that it offers reproductive health services, which help women become parents in a safe and planned way. What in this is not good for women, and in what way does it degrade women?
I would be very surprised if the Planned Parenthood turns out any profit at all. By American law, no government funding can go to abortions. If I know that, living on the other side of the Atlantic, how come you don't know that?
By standing in front of the clinics and tormenting people, you are stopping women from receiving maternal health care. Out of hundred attacked women, only three went there for abortion-related reasons, asshole!
Maybe the Evangelicals have researched the issue for themselves, and realized that all scaremongering is false witnessing, and decided to leave the women alone.

...makes millions of dollars on the slaughter of the fruit of the womb.
