Today’s Washington Times contains a “must read” op-ed. Professors Gerald R. McDermott (Roanoke College) and Carol M. Swain (Vanderbilt) give a well-developed argument for defunding Planned Parenthood based on “disturbing realities” about the way that organization conducts its business.
Here is their concluding paragraph: “One must wonder, then, whether taxpayers should continue to support an organization that is flush with money, has been willing to skirt or ignore laws intended to protect the people it claims to serve and may be targeting minorities with a practice many Americans believe immoral.”
Also, much praise to the Washington Times editorial page for publishing this excellent piece.
