Your biased headline of the day

So President Trump signed a law allowing states to deny federal money to organizations that provide abortion services. Here is how CNN chose to report that news

Trump privately signs anti-Planned Parenthood law

Well, that is a bit dramatic now isn’t it? But CNN did not stop there

President Donald Trump privately signed a bill on Thursday that allows states to withhold federal money from organizations that provide abortion services, including Planned Parenthood, a group frequently targetedby Republicans.

The bill, which the usually camera-friendly President signed without any media present, reverses an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from facilities that perform abortions, arguing that many of these facilities also provide other family planning and medical services.
The bulk of federal money Planned Parenthood receives, though, goes toward preventive health care, birth control, pregnancy tests and other women’s health services. Federal law prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding abortions and Planned Parenthood says 3% of the services it provides are abortions.
The article actually gets more biased as it goes. Go read the whole slanted, shoddy reporting.  the fact is this Planned Parenthood, that by the way was founded by noted Eugenist Margaret Sanger, does not need federal tax dollars. It is flush with $$$$$$$$$$ because killing unborn babies is big business
A budget statement for 2010 fiscal year from a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas, records an “abortion quota” of 1,135 procedures at $313.29 each, according to Abby Johnson, pro-life activist and former director of the Bryan Planned Parenthood clinic. She left the clinic in 2009 after assisting an ultrasound-guided abortion of a fetus at 13 weeks gestation.
Johnson tells National Review Online that the quota doubled from 2009 to 2010, while she had believed at the time that Planned Parenthood wanted to reduce it. After expressing her concerns to her supervisor, Johnson told The Daily Caller, her supervisor laughed and replied, “But Abby, abortion is how we make our money.”
So, what of the claim that Planned Parenthood desperately needs federal dollars?
In its last annual report, Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,166 abortions and receiving $540.6 million in taxpayer funding, or nearly $1.5 million per day. It also reported $58.2 million in excess revenue and over $1.3 billion in net assets.

The fact is this. Planned Parenthood does not need federal funding. Also there is no way that your tax dollars should be used to provide “abortion services”. President Trump did not sign an “anti-Planned Parenthood law”. He did not attack women’s access to healthcare or to basic health services. CNN ought to be ashamed, but, of course do not look for that to happen
