Fake abortions and breast exams
If you can't beat 'em with terrorism, by taking over the courts, or with legislation, you can always dupe vulnerable girls and defraud law enforcement. That's the pre-life way apparently.
According to Twisty, "Apparently misogynist anti-choice fucktards are luring unsuspecting women into fake [Planned Parenthood] clinics and opening cans of past-date whupass onÃ¢â‚¬â„¢em."
Twisty quotes from a PP blog:
An Indiana mother recently accompanied her daughter and her daughterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s boyfriend to one of IndianaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Planned Parenthood clinics, but they unwittingly walked into a Ã¢â‚¬Å“crisis pregnancy centerÃ¢â‚¬Â run by an anti-abortion group Ã¢â‚¬â€ one that shared a parking lot with the real Planned Parenthood clinic, and was designed expressly to lure Planned Parenthood patients and deceive them.When they showed up for their appointment at the real PP there was of course no record of the girl but there were cops who'd been called by someone who claimed that the girl was being forced to have an abortion.
The "crisis pregnancy center" staff then proceeded to wage a campaign of intimidation and harassment over the following days, showing up at the girlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s home and calling her fatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s workplace.
Here's the kicker: Not only are there more of these BS Clinics than actual abortion providers in the US, but guess who foots the bill? That's right, you! They receive tens of millions in government grants...
Twisty vents her spleen on the PP staff who don't "notice" the clinics springing up next door; but for all PP's messaging and politics failures, are the workers on the ground the best place for the outrage?
In other equally disturbing but somewhat more perverted news, The Smoking Gun reports that a 76-year-old Florida man has been going door to door with a doctor bag offering free breast exams.
If I've said this before, I've said it a thousand times: Men, ladies, when a stranger shows up offering to touch you, say no. Loudly. (IBlameThePatriarchy, hat tip: Amanda, The Smoking Gun)
