Planned Parenthood: Racial Doughnation Didn’t Hurt

Item: Planned Parenthood says racist donation hasn’t hurt it/Erica F. Curless, Spokesman-Review

More Info Planned Parenthood of Idaho has had no decline in donations or demand for health services in the wake of accusations that it encouraged a donation aimed at aborting black babies. Officials apologized in February for an employee’s “serious mistake” for accepting a pledge from a donor — actually an actor hired by a student magazine — requesting the money go toward aborting a black baby because “the less black kids out there the better.”

Question: So what was the net effect of this squabble?
