“I do think that they have that advantage”
We all thought Cecile Richards was stepping down from her role as the abortion queen of Planned Parenthood; we were all wrong.
In a recent interview with Salon, Richards issued her most incendiary comments against pro-lifers yet, castigating them with nearly all the sins labeled in 1 Corinthians 6:9. According to the woman who oversaw roughly 3.5 million abortions throughout her tenure as Planned Parenthood CEO, pro-life people “lie, cheat, steal, deceive and break the law.”

Worse still, she goes on to claim that she and her cohorts in the “progressive community” work in harmony with each other and never “lie, cheat, steal, deceive and break the law.”
Tactics that frankly we don’t use in the progressive community. I do think that they have that advantage. The other is, they’ve got a lot of money. People who really probably could care less about the issue, but have complete focus on undermining any progressive institution that has either capacity or political power.
She most likely said this before New York Attorney General Schneiderman resigned from his position amid allegations of sexual assault. And since we’re comparing apples to oranges here, let’s not forget the guest of honor at Planned Parenthood’s 100-anniversary gala:
