Planned Parenthood and the Jihad

One of life's conundrums is why secular progressives and their acolytes in the left-wing media seem to always take sides with Islam against Israel; the only true pluralist democracy in the Middle East.

The Left's sacred cows are human rights, women's rights, gay rights, natural justice, peace and personal freedom, liberty and democracy. 

Practically all of these lofty principles are either proscribed or heinously trampled by Islamists in their daily savagery in suicide bombings, church attacks, honor killings, female genital mutilations ... just look at the counter on the left of this blog by the Religion of Peace blog.

The natural conclusion is that secular progressives will oppose Jews and their only nation state at all costs, even if it means Faustian deals with such heinous fanatics.

But this week I came across this quotation from the founder of Planned Parenthood. This is the standard-bearer of what they call the 'Pro-Choice' movement in America, which defends women's rights to abortion. 

This hugely prosperous NGO is one of the Obama administration's sacred cows - so much so that 3 senators have this month forced an audit investigation into its use of billions of federal funds. Here is an extract of a report from the conservative Heritage Foundation: 
Despite the organization’s prominence—performing roughly one of every four abortions in America—Planned Parenthood has ridden the waves of taxpayer funding to millions of dollars in annual surpluses. Planned Parenthood received over $542 million in taxpayer dollars during 2011 alone, all the while performing a record 333,964 abortions. In that year, like many before it, Planned Parenthood saw a very comfortable income, reporting excess revenues exceeding $87 million and net assets of more than $1.2 billion.

But - apart from its openly racist founder - what does this institution have to do with Liberal Progressives taking sides with the Islamists?  What can they possibly have in common.

I am thinking maybe an attitude to life itself ....
