On April 8, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) said on the Senate floor that abortion was "well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does." In actuality, abortions are around 3 percent of the organization's work. After outrage ensued over the senator's false claim, a Kyl aide's response was to say his statement was not meant to be "factual."
