Planned Parenthood and it’s president and CEO Cecile Richards just haven’t been having much luck on Twitter recently. Richards has been tweeting a series of “facts” in an effort to drum up support for Planned Parenthood, but that’s been a bit counterproductive.
One stunt they’ve attempted in order to improve their public relations was a recent tweet urging people to describe what women want in four words, and they started it out by saying “no politicians in healthcare.”
Although there were several responses affirming the tweet at the top of the Twitter replies, most people saw the irony of the tweet and started calling Planned Parenthood out for it. There’s this:
Glad you want to abolish government healthcare!

One individual pointed out that no politicians in healthcare would mean that Planned Parenthood stopped receiving federal taxpayer dollars:
Then stop begging for tax payer money that you don't need.https://t.co/rcudvd2gF1

Another points out that Planned Parenthood is responsible for killing 900 babies per day. That’s nothing short of infanticide.
No government funded infanticide

This one makes a good point. Planned Parenthood robs a mother and child of love.
What women want in 4 letters-LOVE. In 4 words-Motherhood is true LOVE. Every argument for abortion robs the mother and child of LOVE.

Another individual shows how Planned Parenthood in an older tweet was using the hashtag #WhatWomenWantIn4Words and said “Funding for Planned Parenthood.”
Interesting… they want funding, but they don't want politicians in healthcare. You can't have it both way pic.twitter.com/zzxO3NOdsK

You really cannot make this stuff up. Planned Parenthood can’t have it both ways.
Oh the irony. You ddnt think this one through did you?

I guess Planned Parenthood doesn’t consider itself to be healthcare, or it just admitted that it shouldn’t be receiving federal taxpayer dollars to the tune of $550 million a year.
