Planned Parenthood became the center of a budgetary coup in Washington yesterday, as House Republicans voted to cut all federal funding to the program. To top off an already tumultuous Friday, the organization found itself the subject of an hour-long Glenn Beck screed.

The Fox News host spent his entire show yesterday railing against the non-profit, saying that it assists in sex trafficking operations involving underage girls. He even brought on pro-life activist Lila Rose to try to corroborate his claims.

Here's Beck's introductory montage on Planned Parenthood, edited with the explicit purposes of scaring your socks off:

Next, Beck -- for whatever reason -- conjures tales of sex trafficking in Afghanistan and Egypt before bringing the narrative back home to the U.S.

Finally, Beck talks to Rose about her covert attempts to implicate Planned Parenthood in child sex trafficking.

For what it's worth, Media Matters has a point-by-point rebuttal to Beck's argument.
