Planned Parenthood has had it tough lately. First, some undercover films were released showing some alleged back door selling of fetal tissue, then calling for defunding the organization became a political necessity for candidates seeking the GOP presidential nomination.



The videos, which many see as aggressively edited, were captured by an undercover sting operation by the Center for Medical Progress. They swiftly led to Republicans in the Senate bringing a vote to defund the organization Aug. 3. It failed to pass.

Then, in the crowded, 17-person GOP primary field, the topic of defunding Planned Parenthood in wake of the tapes became something of a bingo free space in currying support from pro-life voters. Candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal even went so far as to approve an executive order to withdraw from the state's contract in funding Louisiana's two Planned Parenthood clinics.

Well, things are about to get even worse with this video, which showcased the true experience had by millions of women who reach out for the provider for help and guidance with reproductive health.

Scathing is one word for it.

Maybe now, the assistance that Planned Parenthood gives can be rightly scrutinized.

Planned Parenthood of Texas has rejected a $500,000 donation from bestselling author Tucker Max in exchange for a clinic named after him, despite the organization's cash-strapped coffers. Why? Maybe because Max is known for skeezy shenanigans and his book I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, which is rich in their detail. His media consultant, Ryan Holiday, penned quite the aghast op-ed on Forbes.com today, defending their efforts.

Ummm, not quite the obvious match you thought, sirs.
