Hilarious Meme Exposes How to Identify a Female Liberal

Red Alert Politics reports Glamour names Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards a “Women of the Year”:
For their 25th anniversary Women of the Year selection, Glamour chose some interesting names.
There are some touching inclusions, such as the Women of Charleston, and the U.S. women’s national soccer team. There is also Caitlyn Jenner, which should not come as a shock to anyone despite his or her feelings on Jenner.
There’s also one name billed as “The Health Advocate.” Did some brave, intelligent woman cure cancer, or AIDS? No? Oh, it’s Cecile Richards, who is the president and CEO of the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.
This pick sadly isn’t surprising either, considering Glamour’s slant when it comes to abortion. Their bit on Richards unsurprisingly portrays her and her organization in a rather rosy light. Again, it’s not surprising. But it is still extremely selective, and problematically so:
One in five women will use Planned Parenthood services during their lifetime—for sexually transmitted infections, breast and cervical cancer screenings, birth control, emergency contraception, and more. In 2015, controversy around these issues reached fever pitch, and some in Congress called to defund Planned Parenthood—a move that would mean nearly 700,000 people could lose access to their only source of health care. But Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, won’t back down.

And more? So a service that 12 percent of their customers use, and what Planned Parenthood is known for is regarded as “and more” at the end. Further, Planned Parenthood does not perform breast cancer screenings, as Richards herself stated quite non-chalantly during her testimony before Congress.
What’s worse though is that how Glamour really portrays the “controversy.” The “controversy” was not and never was about “sexually transmitted infections, breast and cervical cancer screenings, birth control [or] emergency contraception.” It was over Planned Parenthood being recorded discussing what may be them illegally profiting from the sale of fetal parts.
The magazine issue with the winners hails them as “the brave, bold winners who show us how it’s done.” It’s questionable at best that Richards is considered in such a mix.
Honestly, what is this woman being honored for? She’s CEO and president of an organization that is marred by scandal, controversy and potential law violations.
They’ve still managed to stay funded though, mostly because of politics. Congratulations, I guess?
