Another fan of Planned Parenthood

Somebody came to my site searching for Erin Bendle. Ms. Bendle was one of the people who signed a Planned Parenthood petition using a fraudulent story to try to drum up opposition to prolife pregnancy centers. Ms. Bendle added her own comment: "Women deserve truth and respect when making choices about their bodies and health... not deceit."

When I look at comments from supporters of PP's petition, I get the feeling that if these people ever find out about the way PP actually operates, there's gonna be such a backlash that there won't be a PP left standing anywhere in America, because angry people are gonna tear them down brick by brick.

I think that the majority of the people signing that petition wouldn't want to be supporting an organization that sent a young mother home to bleed to death from a treatable injury. I don't think they'd knowingly get behind an organization that allowed a nurse-practitioner to insert laminaria into a woman's body in spite of obvious signs of infection, resulting in her death. I don't think they'd back an organization that referred a teenage rape victim to a facility that lacked proper resuscitation equipment and left her permanently incapacitated. I don't think they'd think highly of a place that routinely referred women to a seedy abortion mill that had at least four women die under their dubious care, or to a string of abortion mills with at least a dozen patient deaths to their discredit.

But I could be wrong. It could be that Ms. Bendle and other Planned Parenthood supporters would consider these women and girls just so much grist for the mill.
