A Racist Organization

“Besides slavery, abortion is the other darkest stain on our nation’s character. And this president is looking for every way possible to make abortion more available and more frequent, and he wants you to pay for it — even if you disagree with it. Welcome to another provision of Obamacare.
I am the adoptive father of four children, each of them either — each of them either black, Hispanic, Native American, and I am incensed that this president pays money to an entity that was created for the sole purpose of killing children that look like mine — a racist organization, and it continues specifically to target minorities for abortion destruction.”

- Context: Tim Huelskamp made the comments at the 2o12 Values Voters Summit, referring to President Obama’s funding of Planned Parenthood. However, as FactCheck.org has pointed out, only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s are abortions, and 10% of the organizations clients receive an abortion. Furthermore, federal funding cannot be (by law) and is not used to fund Planned Parenthood’s abortion services.
