On her MSNBC show on Thursday, activist anchor Andrea Mitchell invited on her friend Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, to trash the upcoming vote by House Republicans to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Teeing up the abortion provider, Mitchell fretted: “...the winds are not blowing well for Planned Parenthood. This vote is likely to pass the House and it does defund Planned Parenthood, which means all of your clinics around the country for women's health.”
Richards proclaimed: “It’s a devastating day for women on Capitol Hill right now, not just the millions of women who count on Planned Parenthood for cancer screenings and birth control, which is what they’re trying to deny access to....We’re desperately concerned about what’s going to happen, it will create chaos for women in America who depend on us for affordable health care...” She reassured her media ally: “...we will fight to make sure that this bill never passes the United States Senate.”
