In the ads, Edelstein moves sadly down a hospital hall, confronting a doorway where a single coat hanger dangles. Apparently, the ad is suggesting that, without further infusions of taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood, abortion rights will be curtailed.
But wait a minute! Big Planned Parenthood cheerleaders -- like Gail Collins of the NY Times -- assure us that no government money is used to provide abortions.
If that's the case, Lisa Edelstein and all the other abortion activists need have no concerns even if all government funding is removed, right? If none of that money has anything to do with providing abortions, then American women are safe from the mythical threat of the coat-hanger.
On the other hand, if the government money IS being used for abortion -- well, all the more reason to defund Planned Parenthood ASAP.
