Be­cause my crit­ics are too stupid to dispute the ar­gu­ments I make, they in­stead lie about what I write. I didn’t even men­tion Planned Par­ent­hood in my let­ter, de­spite the claim made by “Alf Haupt” (I use quo­ta­tion marks since his crack­pot drivel is so sim­i­lar to JC Wil­cox’s) that my let­ter was about that or­gan­i­sa­tion. (In­ci­den­tally, he lied about it too!)

In my let­ter I ac­cu­rately pointed out that Don­ald Trump cut off fund­ing to fam­ily plan­ning pro­grammes through­out the world (this had noth­ing to do with Planned Par­ent­hood) and gave per­mis­sion to em­ploy­ers to deny health in­sur­ance money to women if they used it to buy con­tra­cep­tion. It is the height of hypocrisy for “Haupt” to con­demn abor­tion when, ac­cord­ing to the UN, fam­ily plan­ning pre­vents over 100 mil­lion abor­tions a year!

Fi­nally, as a Jew I am ex­tremely of­fended when I’m told I’m ob­li­gated to sup­port
