    In reality, Abortion services are about 3% of what Planned Parenthood does according to 2009 figures.

    Yes, I just saw the head of Planned Parenthood give those figures you cite. Approximately 3% goes to abortion and that is privately funded.
    Kyl is a liar.

    They only averaged 910 abortions a day in 2009? They need to get the lead out of their ass and kick it up a notch.

    Evidence they are cooking the books? After all, that is quite a serious accusation you are making. I assume you would have proof.
