Mike Huckabee’s Blatant Planned Parenthood Lie

The Lie?
Mike Huckabee’s (R-Fox News) April 9th appearance on Fox and Friends contained the following, well-documented, lie. That Planned Parenthood is “primarily an abortion provider.” Even after he was corrected by one of the co-hosts, Huckabee refused to acknowledge he’d been spouting a falsehood. He offered a bit of phony anecdotal evidence about somebody he knows who ran Planned Parenthood in Texas.
The Truth
The online fact-checking web site, PolitiFact.com used Planned Parenthood’s numbers to conclude that “abortions accounted for just under 3 percent of the procedures Planned Parenthood provided in 2009, which is the most recent year for which the group is reporting statistics.”  Unless Huckabee thinks 3 percent is more than 50 percent, he’s a liar.
