The Campaign of Deception Against Planned Parenthood? Rather, PP Deceives Women and the American Public!

They’re really considered legally adult stem cells even if they’re fetal-derived.”’ (emphasis added) Besides the deceptive terminology, have or are fetal tissues being set up for commercialized medical use? As a former reporter, I am constantly amazed by the lack of investigative reporting on the issue...
