The Miss America Pageant broadcast on Sunday, September 13, 2015 displayed an obvious, orchestrated attempt to be the political mouthpiece for the nation’s largest abortion provider. Not only did the contestant spread a lie that has been debunked numerous times that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms, (which it doesn’t), but seemed to have embedded in her memory the fact that the largest abortion provider receives over $500M in taxpayer dollars. (Not that this helped make her case.) It should come as no surprise that the question, the contestant it was addressed to, and the answer she provided were all contrived.
You see, the contestant who was asked the question was from Tennessee. What relevance does this have? The two Congresswomen who are the lead sponsors of legislation to defund Planned Parenthood just happen to be from Tennessee: Marsha Blackburn and Diane Black.
