Over the weekend, I thought I'd heard nearly every argument--pro and con, compelling and meretricious--in the case of the Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood. I was wrong. In the Wall Street Journal Monday, Robert George presented yet another wrinkle:
Among Komen's reasons for discontinuing grants to Planned Parenthood was its policy of avoiding entanglements with entities under government investigation. Planned Parenthood has been and is under congressional and criminal investigation (by attorneys general, local prosecutors and various regulatory agencies in Arizona, Indiana, Alabama, Kansas and Texas) for allegations including failure to report criminal child sex abuse, misuse of health-care and family-planning funds, and failure to comply with parental-involvement laws regarding abortions.
Planned Parenthood, under criminal investigation. Now how do you suppose the mainstream media--which now and always excludes the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal--how do you suppose the mainstream media could have overlooked that?
