It’s hard to come up with anyone who receives better press (aside from pro-lifers) than Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood’s head honcho. But new heights (or depths) a recent interview conducted by CafeMom’s “The Stir.”

If you go to their blog, we’re told The Stir is a “blog about what’s on moms’ minds–including parenting, fashion, current events, relationships, home care, and much more.” So what do we learn from Barbara Kimberly Siegel’s hard-charging interview?

#1. According to Siegel, Planned Parenthood “unfortunately remains a pawn in today’s political climate. ” Does “pawn” accurately describe an organization up to its eyeballs in politics, which performs over 330,000 abortions a year, is the beneficiary of a half-billion dollars a year from the federal government, and works with International Planned Parenthood to export the abortion plague around the world?
