WASHINGTON, D.C. (04-08-11) – Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest noted that Planned Parenthood of Washington, D.C., engaged in “scare tactics and misinformation” in arguing for more tax subsidies for the profitable and disreputable abortion industry.
Responding to a statement from Laura Meyers, Dr. Yoest said: “Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington is employing the organization’s typical misleading scare tactics. The funding bill passed this week by the House reinstates a longstanding policy that taxpayer dollars do not directly fund abortions in the District of Columbia. Knowing that Americans oppose taxpayer-funded abortions, Planned Parenthood resorts to misinformation and scare tactics to garner public sympathy.
“Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the nation. But pregnancy is not a disease for which abortion is the cure. Women deserve better than what Planned Parenthood provides.”
