The ‘Good Work’ of Planned Parenthood

The ‘Good Work’ of Planned Parenthood

Jeannie

Fresh off professing
his faith at the National Prayer Breakfast, Barack Obama is taking a stand for
the “good work” Planned Parenthood does.  Despite undercover exposés
of Planned Parenthood workers supporting everything from prostitution to
underage sex trafficking, the President of the United States believes the clinic
on the corner deserves American taxpayer support.

Much to Obama’s dismay,
the US House of Representatives recently voted to “completely de-fund Planned
Parenthood
,” which receives about 1/3 of its $1
billion
dollar annual budget from
government grants.

With the money of hard-working Americans, including
those morally opposed to abortion, at 820 locations across America Planned
Parenthood pays the salaries of clinic workers who are so committed to providing
confidential health
services
that they’re willing to overlook pimps exploiting underage
girls
in the sex trade.  Then, if a pubescent girl should happen to
conceive, Planned Parenthood is also willing to maintain secrecy and, if need
be, administer an abortion on a 13 year-old child.

In fairness, the “Good Workers” at Planned
Parenthood
, ever concerned for the well being of all their clientele, do
speak on behalf of teenage sex workers by cautioning undercover pimps that to
avoid infection after an abortion,
little girls should spend time healing before returning to work.

Apparently Republicans with a conscience felt it was time to stop acting
irresponsibly and discontinue being a party, through
funding
, to an organization unconcerned about illegal sex trafficking,
statutory rape, prostitution, and abortion.  Barack Obama
disagrees.

“Pro-life politicians have often gone after the abortion
provider, while pro-choice politicians like President Obama have rushed to [the]
defense” of an organization that claims to keep children safe despite failing to
report tragic incidents like the rape of an 11-year-old
girl
.

In a recent NBC12 interview, committed
Christian/Planned Parenthood supporter Barack Obama was asked whether the most
recent video by the conservative activist group LiveAction,
exposing a “clinical supervisor” counseling a pimp on how to provide
reproductive health services to 7th graders, “warranted a review of
Planned Parenthood’s funding?”

In the interview, when confronted with the
damning evidence against Planned Parenthood, the President deflected the impact
of the video sting.  In an effort to “move the country forward,” an “unyielding” Obama,
America’s most ardent abortion advocate, defended the organization by saying “I
think sometimes these issues get manufactured.”

Is Barack Obama willing
to risk children’s lives based on what he “thinks?”  Doesn’t “sometimes” mean
only sometimes accusations are manufactured?  What about the times they
are not?

During the interview, master of redirection, Barack skillfully
turned the focus to what he considers the real threat to America:  the
blogosphere.  Obama’s
response
to “allegedly damning
videotape proof of a Planned Parenthood supervisor vowing to cover up a crime
was: “They get a lot of attention in the blogosphere.”

Is the threat of
the malicious blogosphere that vital a concern?  Because evidently, children
infected with STDs, being sold into sex slavery, being raped and impregnated and
put under the knife in an abortion mill is not that big of a deal to Barack.

Focused like a laser and determined to not get “distracted with these
issues” Barack Obama is encouraging America to concentrate on more pressing
topics like saving jobs, including those of Planned Parenthood workers who may,
on occasion, employ a rogue worker who offers helpful advice to sex
traffickers.

Obama’s defense of Planned Parenthood reveals a mindset that
the President of the United States believes the organization should continue to
be funded even though, on more than one occasion, clinicians have been caught
doing the “good
work
” of assisting pimps in the exploitation of underage girls.

De-fund the predators of Planned Parenthood

De-fund the predators of Planned Parenthood

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 11, 2011 09:46 AM

Republicans have had the opportunity to de-fund Planned Parenthood many times over the years and failed. Do they have the will and the courage to pay more than lip service now? In the wake of the Philadelphia Horror and related “women’s health” butcher cases, the momentum to strip the abortion industry racket of taxpayer funding is stronger than ever. Over the past several years, some brave undercover journalists at Live Action Films — long chronicled on this blog — have repeatedly exposed the group’s willingness to aid and abet sexual predators, skirt disclosure laws, and perpetuate a criminal enterprise at the expense of pregnant mothers and their unborn children’s health, safety, and lives.

My column today recaps the shameful history of Planned Parenthood predation — and points out that the open, systematic undermining of parental authority by the abortion radicals deserves as much scrutiny as what they do on hidden cameras.

More on PP’s sabotaging of parental rights here.

De-fund the predators of Planned Parenthood

Thanks to the persistent investigative work of young pro-life journalists, Planned Parenthood’s ruthless, money-grubbing colors are on full, fresh YouTube display. But as shocking as the illicit new videos from Live Action Films are, the routine, parental authority-sabotaging advice the taxpayer-funded abortion racket gives teens every day deserves more front-page headline news, too.

Live Action is a California-based “new media, investigative and educational organization committed to the protection and respect of all human life” led by Internet undercover pioneer Lila Rose. The group’s latest video footage at abortion clinics in Perth Amboy, N.J., the Bronx and four cities in Virginia shows Planned Parenthood officials aiding and abetting individuals posing as criminal sex traffickers seeking abortions for underage girls.

Abortion activists first attacked the videos as “doctored,” then claimed they had already taken steps to rectify problems at the targeted clinics, then fired a worker after the tapes had been released and finally denied any systemic failures while patting Planned Parenthood on the back for ordering new re-training measures for their employees this week.

Those who dismiss the scandal as an anomaly are in denial or abjectly ignorant.

In 2007, while an undergrad at UCLA, Rose visited a local campus Planned Parenthood clinic posing as a 14-year-old minor seeking an abortion after being impregnated by a 23-year-old man. California’s mandatory reporting laws require abortion providers to report statutory rape involving girls under the age of 16. Rose secretly captured video of her visit in which the staff advised her to “figure out a birth-date that works,” to obtain the abortion and avoid getting the man in trouble with the law. Instead of vowing to do more to protect girls from predators, Planned Parenthood threatened to sue Rose to shut her up.

That same year, a teenager came forward in Ohio to blow the whistle on how a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Cincinnati had ignored her cries for help after her father — who had been molesting her for three years from the age of 13 — forced her to have an abortion. She told an abortion staffer, who was required by state law to report suspected abuse to police. But the women’s health provider so beloved by liberals on Capitol Hill did nothing.

Another Ohio teenage victim of sexual abuse filed suit against Planned Parenthood after the soccer coach who abused her at age 14 forced her to undergo an abortion. “Although she used a junior-high school I.D. and the coach, 21, paid with a credit card and driver’s license,” the Coshocton (Ohio) Tribune reported, “Planned Parenthood failed to report the abuse.”

Pro-choice radicals assert that butchers like Philadelphia Horror abortion doc Kermit Gosnell — charged along with his baby-killing death squad last month with multiple counts of murder, infanticide, conspiracy, abuse of corpse, theft and other offenses — are an exception and that young girls and women who choose Planned Parenthood are “safe.”

Tell that to the Washington, D.C., family of 13-year-old Shantese Butler, who was left permanently injured and infertile after a botched Planned Parenthood abortion. Students for Life of America reported that Shantese was left with “severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation and a small bowel tear.” In addition, parts of the unborn child were found inside Shantese’s abdomen.

And don’t forget the Nebraska Planned Parenthood clinic that refused to disclose the terms of a settlement with another victim whose botched abortion resulted in a perforated uterus, massive blood loss, an emergency hysterectomy, permanent infertility, seizures and lifelong pain and suffering. According to the suit obtained by Life News, the woman told the abortionist and his assistants to stop, but was told: “We can’t stop.” The Planned Parenthood employees held her down to complete the procedure.

(More forgotten victims of choice here.)

None of this is disclosed on Planned Parenthood’s informational website aimed at teenage girls, of course. Instead, the group aggressively advises pregnant girls under 18 on how to avoid telling their parents about visiting their abortion clinics through a process known as “judicial bypass.”

Through its “award-winning” website Teenwire, Planned Parenthood ideologues normalize teen sexual activity, peddle their “family planning” services, whitewash the physical and moral consequences of abortion, downplay the long-term psychological consequences and circumvent parental authority at every opportunity. What other enterprise receives taxpayer support to entice children to hide their health decisions from their own mothers and fathers?

Planned Parenthood is a $1-plus billion business that rakes in one-third of its budget from government grants and contracts at both the state and federal levels. Congress has interrogated banking, energy, health insurance, tobacco and oil execs — treating them like serial killers before the cameras. When will they finally de-fund a corrupt industry that has real blood on its hands?

Obama celebrates Roe v. Wade; ‘gov’t should not intrude on private family matters’…

President Obama echoed his support for abortion rights today, the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s pro-choice decision in Roe v. Wade.

“Government should not intrude on private family matters,” Obama said in a statement, adding that he also supports policies to prevented “unintended pregnancies.”
The president made his statement as thousands of abortion opponents planned annual March for Life rallies, with many hoping that the new Republican-run House will enact new restrictions on the practice.
“We are seeing a cultural shift toward protecting life and rolling back the tide of unrestricted abortions,” said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life.
Obama’s statement:
Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.
I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.
And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

Planned Parenthood Missing Over $1 Billion Taxpayer Dollars

Planned Parenthood Missing Over $1 Billion Taxpayer Dollars

2010 June 23

What is Planned Parenthood Doing With Our Money? 

Ever misplace over a billion dollars?  What do you think would happen to you if you did?  How long would your prison sentence be?  Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is missing around $1.3 billion of government assistance.  Where’s the outrage?  Where are the investigations?  Where is the congressional hearing?

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) just released a new report on Planned Parenthood’s handling of money given through federal grants and programs.  Between 2002 and 2008 the government funneled 2 billion dollars to PPFA.  But the GAO audit on the organization shows only $657.1 million of that money has been spent during that time.

That leaves over $1.3 billion taxpayer dollars unaccounted for!  Where is it? Just under 33 percent of the money given to PPFA by the federal government has been spent.  And as of right now there is no account of where the rest of the money is.

“Why the discrepancy? These numbers don’t add up and from an organization with a track record like Planned Parenthood’s, the American people deserve an explanation.” – Rita Diller, American Life League

This report was done after 31 U.S. senators and representatives asked for it.  In the last year many reports have come out in the press of various local Planned Parenthoods being involved with illegal abortions, covering up rape cases, and lying about what an abortion does to the fetus.  Just today a news story came out about a Planned Parenthood in Iowa teaching 8th graders how to do graphic sex acts.

Such a report should shock Americans when you realize what ObamaCare will fund.  Obama’s health care overhaul will give “health centers” like Planned Parenthood over $11 billion.  So you are going to give a lot more money to a group that can’t account for 70 percent of its funding.  Most of that funding that PPFA did spend was to woo women into their facilities for free health care, then they give them free birth control, and when that fails they are ready to provide abortions.  How many abortions?  PPFA admits that between 2002-2008 they aborted over 1.8 million unborn babies.

“At a time when the majority of Americans consider themselves pro-life, Planned Parenthood rakes in over two billion of our tax dollars, inconsistently reports how they spent our tax money and then admits to killing 1,803,302 preborn babies between 2002 and 2008 alone.  A growing number of Americans are fed up. It’s time to defund Planned Parenthood.” – Diller

I agree with Diller (who wrote an op-ed on this issue in the Washington Times).  Recent polls over the last couple of years have consistently shown that most Americans are pro-life and are definitely against government funding of abortion and abortion clinics.  How in the world can we continue to fund Planned Parenthood with the American tax dollars?  If we thought ACORN was bad then we should unite together as citizens and demand that government support for PPFA stops today!
