GOP Leadership on Planned Parenthood

(Community Matters) someone called  Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) out on his official remarks from the floor of the Senate that abortion was “well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does.”

When confronted with the truth (that abortion represents only 3% of what Planned Parenthood does and that no abortions are funded with taxpayer monies) his office released the following statement: ‘his remark was not intended to be a factual statement, but rather to illustrate that Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives millions of dollars in taxpayer funding, does subsidize abortions.’

so, he knowingly lies while giving official statements and isn’t even embarrassed about it
