"Getting rid of" Planned Parenthood

Here is another Barack Obama distortion designed to manipulate people who don't think critically or those who don't pay attention.

“We don’t need another political fight about ending a woman’s right to choose, or getting rid of Planned Parenthood or taking away affordable birth control."

Who is trying to "get rid of" Planned Parenthood? No one. This lie line is based on a statement made by Mitt Romney as he described places he would cut federal spending. Ending federal funding for an organization that has the freedom and ability to raise its own money is just good sense.

Secondly, unless I missed it, no one is calling on Trojan to raiee the price of condoms. The last time I checked condoms were cheap and even "free" at the most local health departments. The same is true of birth control pills. Heck, they're even giving condoms away at high school graduations.

The under"lying" point of this entire bit of nonsense from the president is that the federal government must do something if that something is to be done at all. This is the primary fallacy pushed my most statists/leftists/Democrats. Rational people know better.
