Of course, that was then and this is now. And now, men like Orrin Hatch and Mitch McConnell won’t stand up to the right-wing activists enraged by the legal and routine practice by Planned Parenthood and others of preserving and providing fetal tissue as requested by their patients. If the anti-abortion forces succeed in blocking the Title X and Medicaid funds that constitute 40 percent of Planned Parenthood’s budget, millions of women will lose access to contraception, cancer screening and STD tests. As a result, both Uncle Sam’s overall spending and the body count of American women will go up.
