The FOX News War On Reproductive Choice Continues

Reported by Ellen - December 6, 2008 -

Last night's (12/5/08) Hannity & Colmes had another discussion about a sting operation at a Planned Parenthood. The “fair and balanced” panel included two women behind a fake call to a Planned Parenthood office in which a caller pretended to be the underage girlfriend of a man in his 30's. The so-called “crime” was that Planned Parenthood gave the caller an appointment to get birth control and did not report the statutory rape. There was no representative from Planned Parenthood. Fortunately, Alan Colmes stepped up to the plate. With video.

Colmes told the two smug, self-satisfied and condescending guests, “What you're really complaining about is that Planned Parenthood didn't report a phony case... You're going in because you have an anti-choice agenda. You falsely, under false pretenses, went into Planned Parenthood. You talked about a rape that never occurred to play gotcha with Planned Parenthood, using up valuable resources and time where they could have actually been spent counseling women who truly needed help.”

Unfortunately, FOX News obviously has another view. Their description of the video reads, “Planned Parenthood covers up rape.” That blurb does not appear on the embedded video but it is on FOXNews.com. Here's a screen grab (the real video is below):

As Priscilla pointed out, FOX's war on Planned Parenthood is nothing less than a stealth war on women.
