Planned Parenthood's Meat Idea

Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups have convinced the Illinois House to pass legislation criminalizing ultrasounds on pregnant women without a doctor's order—a move aimed directly at crisis-pregnancy centers that offer help to women wishing to keep their babies. The legislation is founded on the hypothesis that ultrasounds may in the future be shown to be harmful. A Planned Parenthood rep explained to the Chicago Tribune that Margaret Sanger's organization has always advocated "a high standard of prenatal care."

Such unusual concern from Planned Parenthood for that thing inside a pregnant woman forces the question: Is it a baby—or a fetus? A baby—or a fetus? Apparently, if you kill it, it's a fetus. If you give it "a high standard of prenatal care," it's a baby.

Planned Parenthood is to babies what Michael Moore's "Pets or Meat" lady is to bunnies.
