Laura Ingraham Wrongly Accuses Planned Parenthood Of Operating Closed Virginia Abortion Clinic
Abortion Clinic Ingraham Described Is Unaffiliated With Planned Parenthood

Laura Ingraham falsely linked Planned Parenthood to an abortion clinic in Fairfax, Virginia that was closed after the state Health Department found numerous deficiencies in an inspection. Ingraham claimed the "Virginia Planned Parenthood clinic" had "disgusting" "hygienic process[es]," in order to attack Hillary Clinton, claiming "these are Hillary Clinton's constituents." The closed clinic is not affiliated with Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood operates six clinics in Virginia -- none of which are located in Fairfax.
From the April 27 edition of Courtside Entertainment Group's The Laura Ingraham Show:
LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): No matter what night it is Hillary Clinton is extolling the virtues of Planned Parenthood. By the way, coming up later, I have an update for you on a Virginia Planned Parenthood clinic, what the health inspectors found out two days ago about this particular clinic’s hygienic process and their procedures they had in place, it is disgusting. But these are Hillary Clinton’s constituents, all these abortion workers and the old feminists who walk around with boutique t-shirts on without their bras, I mean these are all Hillary’s people.
