“Can you believe this, Mr. Speaker? Let’s put sex clinics in our schools, and let’s put Planned Parenthood in charge of these sex clinics, because the bill requires under this provision, Planned Parenthood would be authorized to serve as a sponsoring facility for the Nation’s schools.”
— Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Kookooland) on the House floor, Sept. 30, 2009.
“We see no language in the three main versions of the bill that would allow school-based clinics, which have a long history of providing basic health services to underprivileged students, to provide abortions. Nor would the clinics even be new they have been around for three decades. So we rate the claim Pants on Fire!”

Michele Bachmann is a disgrace to the USA, MN, and the 6th. If you’re interested in getting rid of Bachmann, support democratic candidate Dr. Maureen Reed! You can learn more about Maureen, and donate, at:
Thanks for that info, MNBlue — Dr. Reed certainly seems to be a formidable candidate — in fact, next to Michele Bachmann, it’s like Albert Einstein running against Professor Irwin Corey (pictured below).
Obviously, she’s a much more substantial candidate than Elwyn Tinklenberg, who nearly won in 2008. I hope she collects as much money as Elwyn did in the closing days of the campaign — the GOP will likely throw a bundle into maintaining Bachmann’s seat for the Republicans.
