Great stuff from Dawn Eden on Curves and more on Planned Pregnancy.

The best part?

This caveat:

Yeah, ya gotta warn people against the language on a publicly-funded website. First PBS and NPR, then the National Endowment for Arts, and now this. Well, not now, per se, cuz it's been going on for years. But when do we get government funding for socially-conservative, non-leftist views?

Oh, never. That's right. Thanks, Democrat Party!

Thanks so much for directing people to my blog entry.

Believe it or not, I was actually going to correct you on your calling the Planned Parenthood Web site's "publicly funded," but a precautionary Web search turned up a press release citing a GAO report that changed my mind. I don't know if all those hundreds of millions of dollars in government grants specifically fund the Web site, but they sure give Planned Parenthood freedom to spend extra money on publicity.

I admit it's questionable...
...but to me, if a group gets direct funding from the government, then it is at least a partially-public funded enterprise.
I haven't seen, nor looked for, any breakdown of funding sources. I sincerely doubt, however, that liberal Democrats could fail to divert tax dollars towards something that embodies so much of their ideal of government-influenced erosion of Christian/moral values.
