… in other happy news, Planned Parenthood had a bad year.
“To say that 2011 has been a watershed year in the battle against Planned Parenthood is an understatement. This has been a year that has seen the effort to close down Planned Parenthood escalate to new and successful heights. But, don’t take my word for it. Here are just a few examples of what Planned Parenthood leaders are saying:
Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America: “…unprecedented attacks on Planned Parenthood. Politicians escalating their anti-women rhetoric as they try to outdo each other in their attacks on Planned Parenthood and women’s health.”
Peter J. Durkin, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast: “2011 was one of the most discouraging years ever.”
Jeffrey Hons, president and CEO of the Planned Parenthood Trust of South Texas: “It doesn’t take much reflection on any of our parts to say we’ve never seen a year like this.” Full story here.
