After being caught blatantly lying about Planned Parenthood, Republican Senator Jon Kyl,'s office responded with a statement that says "his remark was not intended to be a factual statement..."
No surprise. Republicans rarely intend to make factual statements. They intend to say whatever they think will help their side punch the most hippies, force the most births, spread the most ignorance, pollute the environment, and create the most wealth for the already filthy rich.
"Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) defended Republicans’ willingness to shut down the government over funding for Planned Parenthood by falsely claiming that abortion is “well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does.” In reality, just three percent of its work is related to abortion."
