(NationalSentinel) Media: It’s examples like this that help explain why the Washington establishment media has lost so much power and influence over the past decade: In institutional inability to be honest when it comes to pushing a Left-wing ideology.
To wit: The Washington Post just referred to Planned Parenthood as a “non-partisan” “health” organization, when the group has been in the tank for the Democratic Party for as long as anyone can remember.
As reported by The Daily Caller, there are numerous examples of just how partisan the country’s largest abortion provider really is - 99 percent of its 2016 campaign donations went to far-Left Democrats. (RELATED: Since when did Planned Parenthood become an entitlement program?)
The DC noted:
Amber Phillips uses the label in an explainer on the Republican plan to replace Obamacare, noting the new system would defund Planned Parenthood. “The nonpartisan health care clinic, which also performs abortions, has been in conservatives’ crosshairs for more than a year now,” she writes.
Setting aside the dubious framing of Planned Parenthood as anything but an abortion giant, Phillips’ claim the group is nonpartisan is problematic, particularly given its vigorous political action during the 2016 election season.
Besides the donations to Democrats:
— “The political arm of the non-profit, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, dumped more than $700,000 into federal races in 2016, and virtually all of it went to Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics…”

“While the Planned Parenthood Federation of America is technically distinct from its political arm, and technically nonpartisan, there’s no getting around the fact that the group’s leader and its political arm are nakedly partisan,” The Daily Caller noted.
Without a doubt. And about those claims that Planned Parenthood is mostly focused on “women’s health,” therefore it must have a half-a-billion in taxpayer dollars every year to continue providing these ‘necessary’ services? Not so much.
Proving that point, essentially, is the fact that the Trump administration made an informal proposal to Planned Parenthood that it could keep its federal funding if it stopped engaging in abortions.
The organization rejected the offer.
