What? Does she really mean that?

Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, became so passionate in her criticism of President Trump this week, she slipped and told the truth.

In an email to PP donors denouncing Trump's actions regarding DACA, Richards said: "...everyone has a right to live..."

Does she actually believe that?

This Sunday is National Grandparents Day. Take a moment and tell us how great we are. And listen to us when we give advice. We're smart. We've already made all the mistakes.

Cecile Richards, the President of Planned Parenthood, sent out a fundraising email this week about President Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which allows certain illegal aliens who have arrived in the country illegally as minors, to remain without risk of deportation.

In her email she called the end of the policy "an attack that will leave 800,000 young people who have grown up in this country at risk for deportation"... "including members of the Planned Parenthood community," she added.

She said, "I'm infuriated, I'm heartbroken. But I'm sure about one thing: Planned Parenthood stands for DREAMers, the young people in this community who are the future of this country."

She said DACA "has helped so many young DREAMers access health care [translated, get abortions], get driver's licenses, receive an education, and work to provide for their families---and without DACA, their fate and ability to remain in this country is unknown."

Richards' vowed to fight back "against this cruel and heartless decision."

Then the mask slipped...a bit.

Just before making her pitch for donations, she said, "Here at Planned Parenthood, we firmly believe that every person has the right to live, work, and raise a family freely and without the threat of deportation or separation."


Right to live?

That's what she said. Every person has "the right to live..."

As you can imagine, that comment lit up the Internet:

"Not every person."

"The definition of irony."

"That kinda defeats the entire mission of Planned Parenthood."

"Four Pinocchios."

"Is a parody of themselves."

However, a few hours later when Planned Parenthood issued their press release, the mask had been put back in place. There is no mention of any "right to live" notion.

The official Planned Parenthood press release called Trump's decision one that "will rip millions of families apart and do irreparable harm to communities that already face discrimination and barriers to accessing health care in this country."

Richards' comment about the "right to live" was not lost on the pro-life community.

The Daily Caller and other conservative media called out Richards. The DC’s Jim Treacher responded that Richards believes everyone has the right to live, “that is, assuming a person’s destiny and body haven’t already been torn to pieces by Planned Parenthood. If their extremities haven’t been separated by an abortionist. If they haven’t been killed and sold off for parts.”

“If you’re reading this, I’m glad your brains haven’t been sucked out of your skull and your body dismembered so people like Cecile Richards can make some money,” Treacher concluded.

The Red State slammed Richards’ thoughtless comments. “Right to live? Tell that to the 300,000 unborn babies whose lives Planned Parenthood snuffs out every year,” Red State’s Brandon Morse asked. “Fear of deportation or separation? From the womb perhaps.”

Morse charged Richards with saying she believes “in every person’s right to control their own destiny” while “ignoring such right for people before birth.”

He pointed out that Planned Parenthood “has a long history of preying on minorities to sell abortions.” Nearly 80 percent of Planned Parenthoods are within walking distance of black or Hispanic neighborhoods.

He opined that Planned Parenthood’s only concern for young immigrants is to keep them here “so it can sell them abortions down the road.”

“Richards can freely say she values life as she takes it hundreds of times a day,” Morse concluded.

The Daily Wire’s Hank Berrien joined in writing, “It’s ghoulish that Richards bemoans the deportation of illegal immigrants as a denial of their ‘right to live’ while championing the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of babies every year.”

For one brief moment, Planned Parenthood almost staggered in from the darkness and told the truth.

“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”
