Stephen Colbert: You Can Get Planned Parenthood Services at Walgreens

Stephen Colbert: Who Needs Planned Parenthood, There's Walgreens!

A Republican attempt to defund Planned Parenthood and other family-planning clinics nearly shut the government down last week. The Democrats were able to stop it, although they conceded a provision preventing Washington DC from using nonfederal money for abortions.

Last night, Stephen Colbert managed to find some humor in the attempt to decrease access to reproductive and women's health services. He called out Arizona senator Jon Kyl for lying on the Senate floor when he said 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does is abortion (it's only three percent) — "Kyl just rounded up to the nearest 90." Senator Kyl's office released a statement, saying he didn't intend for it be factual. And Fox & Friends explained why there's no need for Planned Parenthood, which provides services like cancer screenings and Pap smears, because it's "what you can get at Walgreens." Watch Stephen break it all down above!
