Money No Matter What

Planned Parenthood’s motto is “Care. No matter what.” Their president, Cecile Richards, channels Chicken Little and declares women won’t get desperately needed healthcare without them—and your tax dollars of course. Sade Patterson, president of University of New Mexico Students for Life, tested this. She called Planned Parenthood and asked for a pregnancy test. When told it was twenty-five dollars, Sade said she couldn’t afford it and was advised to get on Medicaid. Sade responded, I need the test now and can’t wait for Medicaid, and asked do you know of anywhere I can get the test for free? Their answer was no, even though a pro-life women help center, offering free tests, was across the street from them. Planned Parenthood’s motto should be, Money. No matter what.
