Planned Parenthood Steps Into Buzzsaw Over DACA Response

Planned Parenthood walked into a buzzsaw over their latest statement on Trump's repeal of Obama's Deferred Action of Childhood Arrival (DACA) executive order.

In an email to supporters, Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, criticized Trump's decision - by claiming that every person has the "right to life."

She wrote: "Here at Planned Parenthood, we firmly believe that every person has the right to live, work, and raise a family freely and without the threat of deportation or separation. We believe in every person's right to control their own destiny..."

Jaws dropped all across Twitter, at how incredibly un-self aware the abortion giant could be.

But the conservative-leaning Heritage Foundation summed up, most succinctly, what everyone was thinking: "Well, not *everyone.*"

Planned Parenthood was enraged that their statement would be taken out of context.

"Cruel. Unacceptable. We won't stand silent," they wrote on Twitter. "Our doors remain open to all, including DREAMers and DACA recipients - no matter what."

Richards, herself, chimed into the controversy in yet another email: "I'm infuriated. I'm heartbroken. But I'm sure about one thing: Planned Parenthood stands with Dreamers, the young people in this community who are the future of our country."

But, of course, not *every* young person who is the future of this country.
