Tonight we're Keeping Them Honest on a message from Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who may run for president in 2012.
Yesterday in Iowa, Bachmann called Planned Parenthood the "LensCrafter of big abortion" in a speech before more than 100 social conservatives. She said the organization should lose its nonprofit status. You may recall last week during the budget battle, Republican lawmakers wanted to abolish federal funding for Planned Parenthood. That didn't happen.
Bachmann claimed that "LensCrafter" information came from the director of Planned Parenthood in Illinois.
But she twisted his words. We'll show you what he really said.
You'll also see it's not the first time she's attacked Planned Parenthood and she's not alone.
Planned Parenthood released this statement:
"The continued misleading attacks on Planned Parenthood expose a cynical and coldhearted willingness to further a divisive political agenda even if it will deny women access to lifesaving cancer screenings and birth control."
We'll also have an update on the budget compromise on Capitol Hill to keep the government running through the fiscal year, which ends September 30.
There are several riders, including one that would remove wolves from the Endangered Species List out West. We'll talk about the budget negotiations with Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).
Also tonight, we'll have an update on that dog we showed you last night that was chained up and starving near Japan's crippled nuclear power plant.
We've received a lot of e-mails and tweets asking for more information. CNN’s Kyung Lah joins us live from Japan.
