This is a good example of what I meant by "need deprogramming".  Much of
their outrage is based on flat-out lies that they believe, for example the
claim that Planned Parenthood was encouraging abortions so as to sell fetal
tissue. Even when (as with that claim) it is debunked and disproven in
court, these people either never hear of it or refuse to believe the truth.

I would almost wonder if we have evidence now that lying to the American
people - when it is provably false, not merely unpopular but not
disprovable beliefs - can, at certain levels, be a public hazard the same
way shouting fire in a crowded theater is.
