Planned Parenthood: Shame on these zealots for their violence…and legislation « Hot Air: "When the reporter challenges her on the use of “war on women,” Runyon-Harms sheepishly smiles and reflexively starts spouting talking points about legislative abortion restrictions. She’s only cementing the journalist’s point: What if some psychotic, violently-inclined abortion supporter hears that inflammatory term and concludes that pro-life legislators are waging a literal war against women, and that he needs to retaliate with the weapons of war? Hmm? Well, that’s different, you see, because no one would take “war on women” literally. Ah. The reporter follows up: “Well, maybe of the people who made some of the [anti-Planned Parenthood] comments that you’re referencing didn’t think that someone would do that either.” Runyon-Harms pauses, then concedes “it’s possible,” then it’s back to the approved script. Two final points: (1) Kudos to these reporters for really drilling down and forcing this woman to confront her incandescent hypocrisy. (2) She mentions in passing that “war on women” is “not a phrase that I use typically.” Um, fact check."
