Obama’s Dr. Death Tells Indiana to Fund Planned Parenthood

Obama’s Dr. Death Tells Indiana to Fund Planned
Parenthood

June 2nd, 2011

The Obama administration today denied
Indiana’s use of its new state law that would deny millions in taxpayer dollars
to the Indiana affiliate of the nation’s largest abortion business
.

Governor
Mitch Daniels signed the law
, which would cut off anywhere from $2 million
to $3 million the Planned Parenthood abortion business receives in federal funds
via the Indiana government through Medicaid.

Daniels said that “any organization affected by this provision can resume
receiving taxpayer dollars immediately by ceasing or separating its operations
that perform abortions.”

However, the Obama administration has told the state it can’t implement the
new law, with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Donald Berwick denying a
request to deny funds saying the federal Medicaid law stipulates that states
can’t exclude providers based on the services they provide.
National
Journal
. “We assume this decision is not unexpected.”

Berwick also said the law makes it so states can’t prohibit access to family
planning, which is provided under federal law. His department released a memo
advising states that they can’t exclude abortion providers from receiving
taxpayer funds via Medicaid.

“Medicaid programs may not exclude qualified health care providers — whether
an individual provider, a physician group, an outpatient clinic or a hospital —
from providing services under the program because they separately provide
abortion services,” Center for Medicaid Director Cindy Mann wrote in the
memo.

Obama Declares War on Christians, Strips Conscience Clause from Pro-Life Doctors

Obama Declares War on Christians, Strips Conscience Clause from
Pro-Life Doctors

March 2nd, 2011

Kevin “Coach” Collins, CoachIsRight.com

In January 2009 Barack Obama and his Marxist Congress had a choice. They
could ram through the Freedom Of Choice Act (FOCA) appeasing the pro-abortion
Left or let it sit while they rammed through “more important items” like
ObamaCare and Card Check to appease their union masters. Their sense of the
situation told them they probably couldn’t do both.
Now after a series of stinging defeats on Card Check and the ever dimming
chances of ObamaCare actually happening, Obama has run back to safe territory.
He has decided to kill off FOCA’s Conscious Clause. Obviously, Obama’s political
handlers have concluded  there are votes to be had in a fight with Christians in
general and the Roman Catholic Church in particular over abortion.
No Conscious Clause
Obama has ordered Kathleen Sebelius the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to start
threatening medical professionals who, for reasons of personal conviction, will
not dispense drugs that cause miscarriages – in effect aborting fetuses.

The ‘Good Work’ of Planned Parenthood

The ‘Good Work’ of Planned Parenthood

Jeannie
DeAngelis

 

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.

Action item: On Monday, there will be a nationwide vigil for victims. Please support these brave whistleblowers standing up for life.

De-fund the predators of Planned Parenthood
by Michelle Malkin

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.

Kermit Gosnell’s born-alive abortions are fine with
Obama

Police arrested Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell earlier this week and
charged him with eight counts of murder. Seven are for practicing illegal
abortions in which he allowed viable babies to be born, then
cut them open with scissors
outside the womb — an action a clinic worker
stated Gosnell performed “hundreds”
of times
. The last was for the death of a 41-year-old refugee from Nepal,
Karnamaya Mongar, who received an overdose
of Demerol during an abortion in Gosnell’s unsanitary clinic, the ironically
named Women’s Medical Society. Although abortion is legal, Gosnell stands
accused of violating the federal Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which forbids
children to be murdered after they have been extracted from the birth canal.
When given the opportunity to vote for a measure that would ban this grisly
practice in the state of Illinois, then-State Senator Barack Obama voted no.
Gosnell’s “Shop of Horrors”
The practices and conditions inside Kermit Gosnell’s abortion clinics are
instructive. The Philadelphia Inquirer described
the scene:

Semiconscious, moaning women sat in dirty recliners and on bloodstained
blankets. The air reeked of urine from the flea-infested cats permitted to roam
the clinic. There was blood on the floor and cat feces on the
stairs.

According to investigators, Gosnell used rusty instruments that spread
venereal disease
among patients.
Several state
departments
— including the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Department of
State, and Department of Public Health — as well as local health care providers
turned
a blind eye
to conditions at the clinic. So did the National Abortion
Federation, an organization dedicated to examining abortion facilities. According
to Time magazine
, the NAF inspector called WMS “the worst abortion
clinic she had ever seen,” but “never passed the information on to other
authorities.” Sanitary conditions and health violations alone take up a
disconcerting amount of District Attorney R. Seth Williams’ 281-page
report
to the grand jury.
The pollution of the surroundings matched the of corruption of the procedure
performed. Gosnell reportedly delivered viable children, then cut their spinal
cords with scissors — a process he called….

Democrats Give Up on Four of Obama’s Pro-Abortion Judges

Democrats Give Up on Four of Obama’s Pro-Abortion Judges

December 21st, 2010

Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com

Democrats have officially given up on seeking votes for four  pro-abortion judicial nominees President Barack Obama put forward for  lower court positions.

In  exchange, they received an agreement from Republicans to allow  votes  on more than 19 noncontroversial nominees that have not earned   opposition from pro-life groups.

Included the four is the highest nominee, Goodwin Liu,  a law school  dean at University of California Berkeley nominated for  the 9th U.S.  Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco but whose  liberal and  pro-abortion views left him with strong Republican  opposition.

In addition to Liu, district court nominees Edward  Chen, Louis Butler  and John McConnell will not receive votes. Liu, Chen  and Butler are  judicial activists who are supportive of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court  decision responsible for 52 million abortions. Obama  nominated Edward  Chen for the Northern District of California and Louis  Butler for the  Western District of Wisconsin.

Planned Parenthood, a Social Disease

Planned Parenthood, a Social Disease

By Chuck Rogér

Planned Parenthood. The sensible-sounding name distracts from what the organization helps achieve: the cheapening of society.
The mission of Planned Parenthood has changed since the days of founder Margaret Sanger. Among the eugenicist’s progressive efforts, in 1939, Sanger conceived the “Negro Project” to reduce the population of “inferior” black Americans [1]. Today, Planned Parenthood claims to deliver “vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide.”
Noble language. But visiting PPF’s abortion-focused website makes traditional Americans feel dirty. Reading “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” a PPF affiliate‘s guide to the “rights” of young HIV-carriers, sends traditionalists looking for a hot shower and strong soap.

Problems begin on the first page. IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation) authors employ the euphemistic “reproductive rights” to declare that a woman deciding that her unborn baby must die is one of the “human rights … recognized around the world[.]” A steady descent into moral nowhere-land then commences.
Young people living with HIV may feel that sex is just not an option, but don’t worry-many young people living with HIV live healthy, fun, happy and sexually fulfilling lives. You can too, if you want to! Things get easier (and sex can get even better) as you become more comfortable with your status.
People who believe in restraint, responsibility, and sensible values find the passage disturbing. But the outrageousness only intensifies. IPPF points out that the guide can be used by HIV carriers who “just want to have sex.” To make sex easier to come by, the guide gins up a “right” to conceal the disease from partners on the basis that partners might discover other secrets, such as drug use or “having sex outside of a marriage or having sex with people of the same gender.” Childish illogic and casual tone underscore how low Western morals have sunk, how badly self-respect and accountability have crumbled. But don’t worry: “There are lot’s [sic] of people who don’t mind whether their partner(s) is HIV negative or positive.”

Sinking lower, IPPF proclaims that some countries “violate the rights of people living with HIV by forcing them to disclose” the disease. By extension, then, asking a reckless driver to sound the horn at a pedestrian directly ahead violates the driver‘s rights.

Having established that death-by-sex requires no forewarning, the guide moves on.
“Young people living with HIV have the right to sexual pleasure.”
At this point, a reasonable person anticipates reading some advice on placing good decision-making above sexual satisfaction. But there is time and space only to conjure up more “rights.”
“Young people living with HIV have the right to take care of their sexual health.”
Self-care seems reasonable — until the guide clarifies that “sexual health” means having plenty of sex to stay healthy. So, then, IPPF has created a magical right for HIV-carriers to have sex to maintain sexual health, which is itself a right. And the rights keep flowing.
“Young people living with HIV have the right to practise [sic] safer sex.”
The “right” to not act immorally? Presumably, airline baggage handlers have the right to not push coworkers under the wheels of taxiing 747s.
The descent into depravity quickens when “Healthy, Happy and Hot” eggs on intoxicated HIV-carriers to have sex as long as the carriers “plan ahead by bringing condoms” or taking other measures. Behold the progressive mind that trusts someone who contracts a killer virus during unprotected sex to possess the decency to use protection while stoned.
The guide’s decency hits rock bottom in “Tips for making sex safer,” where a sidebar notes:
It is not always possible to talk to your partner(s) about or to practise [sic] safer sex — for example, maybe you know that your partner will get angry or aggressive, or you don’t have access to condoms or a safe place to have sex.
So while intoxication shouldn’t rule out safe sex, fear or a sudden urge at an inconvenient moment licenses one to act with abandon. In the progressive mentality, excuses excuse irresponsibility.
The irresponsibility theme dominates “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” which excuses the behavior of people who fail to use human intellect to suppress animal urges. The guide ends up implying that unmarried people who routinely practice unprotected sex with multiple partners stand at moral parity with monogamous married people. The moral equivalence comes as no surprise to clear thinkers aware of the devastating decline of sexual mores and the dirtying of American culture by enlightened progressives.
Enlightenment’s aftermath is instructive. The percent of women condoning premarital intercourse tripled to 91 percent between the late 1950s and late 1980s. As of 2005, over two-thirds of blacks and half of Latino high-schoolers were having intercourse, while over half of all fifteen- to nineteen-year-olds were performing oral sex. Results? In 2008, babies born to unmarried women accounted for 41 percent of American births. The figure stands at 70 percent among blacks, a startling 218-percent explosion since the 1960s.
But the assault on the culture is just shifting into high gear. Released earlier this year, “Healthy, Happy and Hot” has already gone mainstream in America. The guide was distributed by Planned Parenthood at a U.N. “no-adults-welcome panel” hosted in March by the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides. In the progressive view, self-indulgence must start at an early age.
With self-indulgence now the norm, “Healthy, Happy and Hot” essentially cries, “Vive la décadence!” Healthy people beware, for HIV-carriers have a “right” to sexual satisfaction. But do people have equivalent risks of contracting HIV from infected and uninfected sexual partners? The open-and-shut answer lies beyond the range of Planned Parenthood’s radar.
Morally adrift enablers such as Planned Parenthood comprehend neither the immorality of wrapping people in feel-good excuses for bad behavior nor the willpower-weakening effects of false rights and unearned self-esteem. Absent from “Healthy, Happy and Hot” is any suggestion of abandoning the promiscuity that facilitates HIV’s spread. Instead, the guide reinforces a casual attitude toward sex that rejects accountability, erodes self-respect, and coarsens civilization.
According to Planned Parenthood, people have the “right” to self-esteem, the “right” to respect from others, and therefore the “right” to behave in any manner without forfeiting either self-esteem or respect. Embracing honesty, wholesomeness, and achievement in order to build self-esteem and earn respect has no place in the world that progressives built.
