Hillary's Singing Abortion-Rights Groups' 'Toon'

Sen. Hillary Clinton said today that she was joining conservative senators in sponsoring legislation for a uniform ratings system that would warn parents about sex and violence in video games, television, and other forms of entertainment to which their children might be exposed.

None of the media picked up on the fact that she made those comments at a forum sponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation—which is a major Planned Parenthood ally. It sponsors MTV's "Fight for Your Rights" sex-ed campaign, which features a hotline that refers callers to Planned Parenthood. Never mind that MTV's viewers are largely children and teenagers, and that Planned Parenthood has a history of not reporting the sexual abuse of children.

The Kaiser-supported MTV campaign also instructs teens to "take action" against government funding for abstinence-education programs.

So, by making her announcement at a Kaiser Family Foundation forum, Hillary is sending a message to her pro-abortion supporters. She's showing them that her stand against sex on TV is just a cynical sop to the family-values crowd. Her own belief that children should be exposed to sex has not changed. She just wants them to be exposed to it at taxpayers' expense, so kids will receive so-called "comprehensive sex education" from the likes of Planned Parenthood, which currently receives over a quarter-billion in government funding a year.

I don't see Hillary speaking out against "Postcards From Buster", the government-funded kiddie-cartoon show with a "Heather Has Two Mommies"-style storyline. But then, the "Postcards" producers are no doubt on Hill's good side, having depicted her on the show as president of the United States.
