Republican congressmen had their knives ready for the arrival of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood. Among other attacks on Ms. Richards, Republicans were upset that she earned $520,000! Day after day men and women from Wall Street appear in Congress and they ordinarily earn millions of dollars, heck, some earn $100,000,000 but not a squeak out of Republicans –they probably want to solicit some of those millions in campaign donations.
Cecile Richards was calm,she spoke with clarity, she responded to their questions with a sense of dignity. “Planned Parenthood has been in the news recently because of deceptively edited videos released by a group dedicated to making abortion illegal.”
She displayed dignity and responsibility. Sorry, those qualities are not ordinary ones found in this Congress.
