Those who cannot remember the past....

are of course condemned to repeat it, as Santayana noted, and it's especially telling about the past that President Obama forgot, or ignored, in his recent address to Planned Parenthood.  Lauding "100 years of service", it would have been interesting if someone in the press had asked him whether that would include the historic racist and eugenic policies of Planned Parenthood. 

Or, for that matter, if it would include the group's failure to ensure basic sanitary conditions at its clinic in Delaware, or the group's opposition to reporting of likely cases of statutory rape (and documented failure to comply with the law where it exists), or their affiliation with Kermit Gosnell.

I'm no friend of Roe V. Wade, but if I were, I hope I'd still be asking these questions.
