Planned Parenthood is blasting NBC for not running an advertisement for a movie that has the word "abortion" in it, but the news agency has denied that it ever received word from "Obvious Child" representatives regarding their interest in buying a spot to advertise the movie.
"The vast majority of American support access to safe and legal abortion, and they do not see the mere mention of 'abortion' as inappropriate on network television," said PPAF President Cecile Richards in a statement as reported by The Hill.

Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry said that with 1,000 illegal immigrants crossing the United States' southern border into Texas every day, the Obama administration is neglecting its constitutional duty to secure the nation's borders.
