The Smearing of Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood has come under fire for what anti-choice activists call “selling baby parts”.

The President and the Governor recognize the necessity for change in a time when graduation rates should be higher and student loans should not. These issues were addressed in the State of the Union and State of the State addresses, respectively. President Obama proposed free community college for all American students, citing successes in Tennessee and…
