A new proposal would make it easier for research centers and universities in Idaho to continue using fetal tissue for some research projects.

The popular conservative blog RedState.com says this about Planned Parenthood: “Our muddy moral moment might obscure this searing truth: we are not simply keeping up to speed with the Nazis. We are outpacing them. Planned Parenthood is operating by a for-profit motive that was largely alien to the Third Reich.” There is no evidence on the deceptively produced videos that the organization is profiting, but that doesn’t stop RedState from calling this “our Auschwitz.” But even if the profit charge is bogus, that still means the country is “keeping up to speed with the Nazis” by funding Planned Parenthood, according to RedState.
