Cecile Richards’ Attempt to Paint GOP as Sexist for Defunding Planned Parenthood Totally Backfires

Planned Parenthood has been in panic mode ever since most of its pro-abortion candidates lost in the November election.

Last week, the abortion chain’s panicked rhetoric escalated when the U.S. House passed a bill to defund

it of hundreds of millions of tax dollars and repeal and replace Obamacare. The U.S. Senate is considering similar legislation.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has been especially vicious, going back to her old standbys that Republicans hate women and that old, powerful white men in society are trying to control women’s bodies. (Never mind that Planned Parenthood gets tens of millions of dollars in donations from some of the richest old white men in the world.)

Here’s more from The Blaze:

Responding to a tweet on Friday from a reporter who listed the Republican senators working on a health care bill in the upper chamber — and only listed men — Richards said women will effectively be taken to the cleaners by the Senate’s version of the bill.

When women aren’t at the table, we’re on the menu,” Richards wrote.

The tweet immediately brought to mind the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood leaders haggling across the table about the sales of aborted babies’ body parts. Many of the reactions on Twitter pointed out how darkly ironic Richards’ post appeared.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

One person referred to the first Center for Medical Progress video where Planned Parenthood Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola sat in a restaurant sipping wine and eating salad while she talked about “crushing” unborn babies’ bodies and harvesting their organs.

Another referred to Mary Gatter, the medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, who infamously told investigators posing as baby body parts buyers that she wanted a Lamborghini.

Someone else posted a list of fees per aborted baby part from a company that worked with Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities:
