Question of the Day
So says former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson in a new advocacy ad from a coalition of pro-life groups intent on exposing what they call the organizations “abortion-driven business model.” The new TV spot notes that Planned Parenthood receives $380 million annually in federal funds and that 98 percent of its outreach is abortion. The groups, which have bought $90,000 in commercial air time, include the Susan B. Anthony List Education Fund, American Values, Catholic Advocate and the CatholicVote.org Education Fund.
