It's about time...

Congress is finally investigating Planned Parenthood's sex trafficking and abortion business.


I couldn't count the number of times Planned Parenthood would show up to testify on sex ed/parental consent bills and proceed to explain how many 13-year-olds coming to them for contraception.

The Commonwealth sets the age of consent at 16. The age of consent recognizes the immaturity of a child's perception puts them at risk for being coerced. Every healthcare provider is a mandated reporter. Yet, for decades, adults mentoring female children to be sluts would parade in with their stories and the Massachusetts legislators wouldn't bat an eyelash. Mass lawmakers would rig the hearing to permit Planned Parenthood to testify until 8 or 9 at night. When the opposition thinned to a handful of people, they would let opposition testify. By then, the only people left to hear testimony were the chairwoman and the janitors.

This is a huge step forward.

Kudos to Lila and her team.
