Planned Parenthood rejects science in attack on Missouri 'personhood' proposal
August 27, 2010
In Missouri, a legislative initiative would define human life as beginning at conception. A Planned Parenthood official objects: “Those are not sentiments that all the world’s religions, or all the people in the state, believe in.” Writing in the Post-Dispatch, Colleen Carroll Campbell notes that the law’s findings are not “sentiments” but facts, based not on religious beliefs but on scientific knowledge. Planned Parenthood is taking the anti-scientific line.
