Holy Motivated Misperception, Batman!

Planned Parenthood spends most of its effort on ..... not abortions. 
Is this surprising?  Not that much, but perhaps a bit. It is really more about STDs and contraception.  That will not it very popular with the right wing as making sex less risky is seen as a bad thing.  Plus the 3% is still going to be way too much.  0 percent would be about right. 

I am not going to compare the right wing to the Taliban (the latter's ideology meant that women died in childbirth since doctors were mostly male but could not touch women), but there is something to the idea that ideology matters more than women's health.  Ok. I guess I did compare the right wing to the Taliban.  Oops.
