Representatives for Planned Parenthood are scrambling to explain how seven of its branches were caught on tape agreeing to accept bigotry-inspired donations. When recordings of the undercover investigation were released this week, spokesmen from Idaho to Ohio desperately tried to explain away the incidents.
Rebecca Poedy, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Idaho, where a vice president for development was caught exclaiming how “excited” she was to receive money from a donor who wanted to reduce the state’s black population, says her employee was misunderstood. “We need to train our staff to handle calls from people that are coming with offensive agendas,” Poedy told reporters.
Unfortunately for Planned Parenthood, the tapes speak for themselves as to whose agenda is truly offensive.
