Jon Kyl, this is what 3% looks like

Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ) recently stood on the Senate floor and stated that abortions are “well over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does.” In reality, abortions only make up about 3% of the health and reproductive services Planned Parenthood provides. When this glaring error was pointed out to Senator Kyl, he released a statement saying that the statistic he gave on the Senate floor was “not intended to be a factual statement.”

Inspired by Senator Kyl, I came up with some statements of my own…

Note: None of these were intended to be factual statements.

    That one really got my blood boiling….

  3. I echo what AmyVJ said re the blood and boiling.

    When I hear things like this, I think “This is just too insane and wacko to even warrant a response! How do you reason with lunatics?!”

    But then I come to realize that people actually listen to these people. As in, lots of people listen to Jon Kyl and his boldface lies. And so if I, we, the Sane Among Us, don’t say something, the only message is one of shameful, harmful untruths. It’s easy to feel really helpless. So I appreciate someone taking it for the team here, Meg.
