File this one under rank hypocrisy.

WASHINGTON (BP) — Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, has spent $12 million on this year’s presidential election through its political action committees.
That is more than it has ever spent in an election, and about half of it has gone for television ads in such battleground states as Florida, Ohio and Virginia, according to the Associated Press.
Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood’s president, said she has “taken a break from [her] day job” to campaign for President Obama. In a video released by the Obama campaign on Oct. 19, Richards said, “Our daughters’ and our granddaughters’ future depends on” working to re-elect the president.

To put these numbers into perspective, let’s recall the savagery of Planned Parenthood’s attacks against Susan G. Komen for the Cure when they announced that they were no longer renewing their annual $600,000 in grants for breast exams because PP doesn’t do mamograms as they claimed to do. Komen wanted their money to go for actual mammograms and not the far less reliable manual breast exams PP does.
Planned Parenthood lied.
Komen wanted the best for women.
We all know what ensued, and how Komen caved to a coordinated campaign of lies and terror tactics, with PP claiming that women’s lives would be on the line without that $600,000 per year in funding for the PP cheap squeeze.
Now comes word that PP has already spent $12 million on Obama’s reelection campaign, and plans to spend another $850,000 before next week. That comes to 21.5 times the money Komen tried to withdraw.
What about all of those women who would surely die with a mere fraction of that $13 million being spent on reelecting Obama? How many more women will most certainly die with 21.5 times the loss of those dollars in PP’s account? The truth is that PP doesn’t save women’s lives nearly as frequently as they claim. As the largest abortion provider in the country they actually kill more females than any other “medical” provider. (Ditto for males as well)
The truth is that PP has NEVER performed mammograms, but even as recently as this month Obama has persisted in repeating that lie.
The truth is that MAMMOGRAMS save lives, and that lumps too deep or too small to be palpated can be missed by the PP cheap squeeze and that Komen got it right in wanting to redirect their funds.
The truth is that the birth control pills handed to teenage girls under 18 years of age by PP and others increase those girls’ risk of developing the deadliest and most aggressive form of breast cancer (Triple Negative Breast Cancer) by 540%!!!
The truth is that abortion raises women’s risk of developing breast cancer, as the peer-reviewed scientific literature has been detailed exhaustively on this blog.
Komen has no business funding the merchants of death at PP. Their noble mission is to save lives. For their efforts they were painted as callous and obtuse as regards women’s health–by the people whose very mission and activities increases the risk of breast cancer…
…By the very people who would go on to spend, according to the reports, 21.5 times Komen’s $600,000 to reelect the most rabidly pro-abortion president in US history. All in contradiction to their stated goal of protecting and saving women’s lives.
Hypocrisy yielding to unbridled contempt and thuggery.
Komen got mugged.
