Now it’s Cecile Richards’ turn to assume the support of Beyoncé, by tweeting a couple of seconds from her 2014 performance at the MTV Video Music Awards where the singer, as one tweeter put it, required barely clothed female back-up dancers “to dry hump everything in sight.” It was there that the superstar outed herself as “a 100% no-apologies feminist,” proving that the no-apologies feminists of Planned Parenthood are anything but a “fringe movement.” Partial-birth abortion?
