Victimization as social currency provides a fertile ground for con men, charlatans and other characters of ill repute. So it is only natural that one of the most duplicitous organizations in the United States, retail abortion giant Planned Parenthood, would glom onto the least credible accuser of new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Julie Swetnick, accompanied by her smarmy lawyer Michael Avenatti, made outlandish accusations against Kavanaugh at the time of his Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, without the least shred of corroborating evidence. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has called for the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate Avenatti and his client over their assertion that Kavanaugh drugged and assaulted females as a high school student well over 30 years ago.
Swetnick remarkably said she attended parties where girls were routinely gang-raped, and then went on attending more and more parties. There were numerous other holes in her story, such as the fact that she attended a different school with an entirely different social circle than Kavanaugh did. Even Democrats lamented the Swetnick allegations as an unwelcome distraction from main accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against the judge.
Only truly partisan personages pursuing an over-the-top agenda of their own would rally to Swetnick’s highly dubious cause. Hello, Planned Parenthood.
Hide the Murder
Despite the decision to confirm Kavanaugh to SCOTUS and Swetnick’s own change of story, PP recently tweeted in support of the discredited rape accuser.
We still believe Julie Swetnick. #BelieveSurvivors

Perpetuating the vile lie that even the most far-fetched claims of sexual assault must be believed, fits in perfectly with the abortion mega-merchant’s rebooted business model.
The organization that has repeatedly lied to women throughout its existence is now attempting to deceive them again. By championing the widest portrayal possible of women as sexual victims, Planned Parenthood is hoping to position its hugely profitable baby-murdering procedure as a needed and natural service. It is also trying to rebrand itself as a social justice champion instead of the mass abortion retail outlet it is and always has been.
One of the many lies Planned Parenthood tells women is that it exists to provide for a full spectrum of their health care needs. In so doing, PP lied about providing mammograms for women. Even the hard-left, staunchly pro-abortion Washington Post called the organization and its supporters out on this.
Planned Parenthood also lies about providing neo-natal care for women. The pro-life group Live Action exposed this deceit by calling PP clinics around the country and simply recording their responses to requests for such care. Most PP staffers seemed astonished to even receive a call on the subject.
In short, what Planned Parenthood does is provide abortions. And while they do perform routine tests like STD screening, these things are not their core moneymaker. Think of STD tests as the Pepsi at a burger joint. Abortion is where PP makes its money. Planned Parenthood performed 321,384 abortions in its 2016-17 fiscal year. Georgi Boorman at The Federalist crunched the numbers, providing for reasonable estimates of price per types of abortion, and concluded that PP made close to $203 million on abortions for that year.
This is the last thing Planned Parenthood wants you to think about when its name comes up. Thus it needs masquerades. Sterile terminology served it well for decades. Baby-murdering was merely a “procedure” or a “termination,” yet this still kept the abortion product as the center of attention. That won’t do.
Social justice is an ideal way for Planned Parenthood to push the baby killing into the background. This is why they rally to support even un-supportable women like Swetnick.
Pretending to Care
In the wake of the disastrous undercover video exposé of Planned Parenthood working to harvest aborted baby parts for sale to medical researchers, the organization’s President Cecile Richards stepped down to make way for a new face of the organization. It was no accident that a minority woman who trumpets social justice causes was chosen. Dr. Leana Wen, a Chinese immigrant, loves spouting the usual leftist claptrap about “a society of racism, sexism, misogyny, bigotry, white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, denial of science, denial of climate change.” Anything on that menu serves well as cover for baby murder.
Social justice is an ideal way for Planned Parenthood to push the baby killing into the background.
And the face of PP’s activist branch just so happens to be a woman with similar social justice trappings. Alencia Johnson is director of public engagement at Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Planned Action Fund. In a fawning interview at Forbes, Johnson drops loaded jargon like “institutional racism and systemic oppression are the reasons black communities face greater obstacles…” What better way to get blacks to stop wondering why the majority of PP’s baby-killing centers are located in minority communities?
Johnson mirrors Wen’s hysterical babbling by saying, “So while this sexist, racist, xenophobic, homophobic (and the list goes on) Trump administration continues to dismantle the progress we’ve made over the past decade…”
This is how the rebranding Planned Parenthood wants to frame itself in the public eye.
It is crucial to note that none of this rhetoric has to be true. Planned Parenthood could not care less about the accuracy of their declarations. They only have to provide cover for the grisly heart of a monstrous machinery.
It is increasingly clear that an unstable Julie Swetnick lied about Brett Kavanaugh in service to a larger partisan agenda aimed at a conservative Supreme Court nominee. Planned Parenthood routinely lies to women to push forward a larger agenda aimed at continuing its profitable baby murdering operation. Sadly, these lies hurt the very women these conniving hucksters claim to be so devoutly supporting.
