When Fidencio Sanchez pushed his ice cream cart to work again on Monday, he showed the world his resiliency in light of several recent tragedies in his life.

Thanks to a stranger setting him up a GoFundMe page to help the 89-year-old to retire and pay for his family's healthcare costs, he is now over $283,000 richer and can finally empty out the ice cream cart for the last time.

Here he is on a Facebook Live session, getting some of the fame he deserves:

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.
