LA Times Fumbles the Facts in Abortion Story

The lies were horrid enough when they were first told but when journalists continue to tell them, despite abundant and clear facts to the contrary, the sin is compounded still further. Such is the case with today's Stephanie Simon story in the Los Angeles Times in which she denies that radical eugenicist and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger ever promoted coercive means in controlling population.

The facts trump the lies.
