The liberal host led her 10 pm program by playing clips from Democratic Congresswoman Gwen Moore's Thursday speech on the floor of the House, where she argued that funding Planned Parenthood was better than having "to give your kids ramen noodles at the end of the month to fill up their little bellies so they won't cry. You have to give them mayonnaise sandwiches." Many in the conservative blogosphere  argued that she's hinting that it's better to abort a child than have them live life in such a way. Behar then introduced Rep. Moore and Planned Parenthood Federation of American president Cecile Richards and asked the congresswoman, "What drove you to finally stand up on Thursday and deliver that great speech on the floor?"
Behar complimented the Wisconsin Democrat (who was participating in the pro-union protests in Madison) again after the politician gave the standard liberal line that "Planned Parenthood is part of why we're all standing here today. These have been hard-fought rights, human and civil rights, to determine your own destiny and to have control over your lives, and we weren't- I wasn't about to just sit still in my seat and listen to people with their own corporate interests, their only spin on American values, set the tone." The host replied, "Good for you! Thank you for doing that."
The HLN personality continued by directing her first question towards Richards (note as well that Behar didn't seek out any pro-life women for the segment, such as former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson ): "Cecile, explain to people who are watching what the Republicans want to take away from Planned Parenthood, which, by the way...everybody out there should know, that there is no federal funding for abortion. We are not talking about abortion here. We're talking about- what? what do they want to talk away?"
Actually, Behar's claim about federal funding of abortion isn't true. The National Abortion Federation, one of the largest pro-abortion organizations in the country, acknowledges that current federal law  "requires [Medicaid] coverage of abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life endangerment."
For the next portion of the segment, the three "pro-choice" women then acted like Planned Parenthood was the only entity that could provide health services for low-income women. In reality, there are about 1,200 Federally Qualified Health Centers  delivering much of the same preventative care at "over 7,000 service delivery sites in every state and territory":
BEHAR: Okay. Now, Representative Moore, where do these Republicans expect these women to go if they can't go to Planned Parenthood anymore? Where are they going to get these services?
MOORE: You know, I can tell you that we- you know, we have seen a constant thing, that if they don't have anywhere to go, 'so be it.' We asked them that same question about protecting clean air and clean water. They stripped the funds from that. Mr. Boehner was asked where people were going to go, like these workers here. Hundreds of thousands of people were losing not only their jobs, but their rights, and their mantra is 'so be it.' I do think (laughs) 'so be it' is their mantra. And so, we're seeing a very corporatist climate emerging, and this is why I'm so glad to see people hit the streets. We're out here in freezing cold weather here in Wisconsin. We're used to it, and there's nothing that's going to stop us from speaking up for our human rights and workers' rights. This is what it means to be an American. (crowd cheers)
BEHAR: Do you think, Congresswoman, that 'so be it' really means,' we don't care'? Who cares? Is that what 'so be it' really means?
MOORE: That's what 'so be it' means, and, you know, I have, you know, there are buttons that many members are wearing that say, 'so be it' on it because that's the theme- that's the message that many of our colleagues, that our colleagues on the other side, want to convey. I do think that- I do think it's important to realize that it's a double message to say that you don't want to support Planned Parenthood services, and then at the same time, you don't want to- you want to repeal the health care law, and so, not provide any medical services for women at all. To say that you want to zero out WIC, women and infants and children's funding for food, and then say that you want children to be born. And I think that their message is, inevitably, then 'so be it,' if these children die. They care very much for children in the womb, but boy, junior, once you crown, once you're born, you are part of the ownership society when you're on your own.
BEHAR: Right. Oh, they don't seem to care about it after the child is born. It's like caution to the wind. But, you know, I think that one of the things I think is going on is even though Planned Parenthood, Cecile, doesn't offer abortions for- with taxpayer money, the fact is that Planned Parenthood does provide abortion if you pay for it yourself, right?- or if insurance pays for it....Is that the real reason that they're targeting Planned Parenthood because of the abortion services?
RICHARDS: I think it's actually that is what- and I think we saw that in Congress last week where they basically said, look, if you would just quit providing this legal service that some women need, and again, it's a very small part of what we do but it is- we believe it's an important service to women. If you would just quit doing that, we would give you all the family planning money that you possibly could need, and I think that's- the cynicism of all of this is it's really taking women's health care and making it a very political issue.
BEHAR: Yes. Well, they've always done that....They've always done that.
RICHARDS: But that's what I think, as a result of- and I think you really spoke to this, what's going to happen as a result of this? If this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are going to lose their health care access, not to abortion services, to basic family planning- you know, mammograms, cancer screenings, cervical cancer.
BEHAR: All the things that women need and people can't afford.
RICHARDS: Exactly, that's the irony of this, is that we just spent this year talking about the need to get more people health care coverage. Millions of women now would have absolutely no health care coverage in this country and nowhere to go.
