Program: Planned Parenthood - The Real Story
Speaker: Claudia Huerta
Republicans have been vilifying Planned Parenthood for many years. The threat to shut down the government unless funding for Planned Parenthood was eliminated and the bogus video claiming Planned Parenthood was "harvesting fetal body parts for profit" are just their latest attacks. What is the real story? What does Planned Parenthood actually do and how are they funded? Why are Republicans against Planned Parenthood? These questions will be answered by Ms. Claudia Huerta at our November meeting.
