Whoopi Tries Taking A Stand For Planned Parenthood, Then A Republican Stops Her Right In Her Tracks

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum was the guest on a recent episode of ABC’s The View when the discussion turned toward an ongoing conservative push to defund Planned Parenthood. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg kicked off the conversation by asking Santorum what he would do with the money that currently goes to fund the nation’s most prolific abortion provider. “I’m for reallocating every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood,” he replied, “and put them in women’s health centers that actually provide more comprehensive services than Planned Parenthood does.” He went on to explain that there are many health services and screenings – such as mammography – that the organization does not provide. When Goldberg attempted to dispute his point, Santorum was ready. “Cecile Richards yesterday at the hearing,” he said, recalling the Planned Parenthood president’s recent congressional testimony, “said, in fact, they do not. In fact, there are no Planned Parenthoods that provide any mammogram services. They basically provide abortion, contraception, STDs and pregnancy tests. That’s it.” Santorum reinforced his case by noting that defunding Planned Parenthood should have no bearing on the organization’s ability to kill unborn children since it is already illegal to use federal funding for abortion.
