"Not a factual statement"

Senator Jon Kyl made a small misrepresentation about how much of Planned Parenthood's business is related to abortion...well 90% versus the closer-to-actual 3%. We must remember that 87% of statistics are made up, and 44% of those don't even make sense in the context in which they are used. Don't just accept the assertions of people, especially who are in positions of authority. In fact, make sure you check what they say. As we have seen, some are depending on the implicit trust of their position to carry their argument forward.
