Back to its roots: PP operative praises China's one child policy in promoting U.S. contraceptive mandate

In a chilling op-ed, Norman Fleishman recently called for enactment of the Obama contraceptive mandate, saying that it "along with China's 'one child policy' is a start" at avoiding a world "doomed to strangle among coils of pitiless exponential growth."

Fleishman is the former vice president of Planned Parenthood World Population, and a signer of the Humanist Manifesto II (1973), the reaffirmation of the credo that Planned Parenthood's founders and funders professed. Planned Parenthood's roots are plunged deep into the poisonous ground of secular humanism.

The Humanist Manifesto II says, in part, "As in 1933, humanists still believe that traditional theism, especially faith in the prayer-hearing God, assumed to live and care for persons, to hear and understand their prayers, and to be able to do something about them, is an unproved and outmoded faith. Salvationism, based on mere affirmation, still appears as harmful, diverting people with false hopes of heaven hereafter. Reasonable minds look to other means for survival."

STOPP has emphasized from its beginning the need for those battling the abortion giant to understand the secular humanist roots of Planned Parenthood. Our DVD series "STOP Planned Parenthood" contains an excellent summary and many other tools to help you in your fight against Planned Parenthood. It is available on our website.


Margaret Sanger laid the groundwork for China's one child policy

No one should be shocked that a Planned Parenthood operative like Norman Fleishman would praise China's brutal one child policy of forced abortion, since Margaret Sanger herself used the same type of scare tactics used by Fleishman to enable elimination of the children of the poor in China.

You can literally feel the contempt for the poor in the words of this speech Sanger gave at Carnegie Hall in 1922:

"China, the mysterious fountainhead of art, philosophy and the deepest wisdom of the world, has been brought down by the breeding and multiplication of the worst elements of the yellow race," she said.

"Here are masses of humans who live below the level of animals. They eat, sleep, and breed in the crowded streets and sunless alleys. Go through the reeking labyrinth of one of these native Chinese cities. Go on a day when a hot sun brings out all of these wretched incurably diseased specimens of what we dignify by the name of human.

"Go through those narrow, choked streets, as I did one day last April, and you may see these wretched creatures pawing over piles of garbage and refuse. There in these quarters, the incurably diseased and leprous breed with the profligacy and thoughtlessness of flies."

Sanger goes on to say, "I recall an unforgettable, unspeakable picture I saw in the native quarters of Shanghai-the prostrate body of a leper woman, covered with rags; her naked diseased children climbing over this inert figure. Horrified by this spectacle we moved on, followed by a crowd of starving, naked children, some of them blind, all unspeakably diseased, crying in pitiful voices for coppers. Such are the results of obeying the age-old injunction to increase and multiply, carried to a literal conclusion. Such is the punishment of a herdlike obedience to blind instinct, of non-interference with the course of nature."

From Sanger, the activist, there was no mention or desire to reach out in love to help these people develop a way to support themselves, no mention from Margaret Sanger, the nurse, about getting medical supplies, food and sanitation to these poor, suffering people. Her talk was just an attempt to build animosity toward the poor whom she despised, so that she could open her Pandora's box of birth control and eliminate poverty by eliminating the children of the poor. Bigotry, plain and simple.

She prescribed, in her words, a "drastic, national policy of birth control," for both Japan and China. We can see the result of that proposal in China today, with its one-child policy and forced abortions committed against women who have exceeded the government limit.

I am reminded of an image I saw recently which shows the result of Margaret Sanger's imagery at Carnegie Hall. It was a picture of a distraught Chinese woman lying on a gurney with her child beside her in a see-through plastic container. The child had been forcibly aborted at around 8 months gestation because, by carrying this child, the mother was in violation of Sanger's resultant "drastic national policy of birth control." Because this mom didn't have enough money to bury the child, its body was presented to her in this container, lying beside her on her bed, in an obvious attempt to further torture and punish her.

And heaping more burning coals upon the hearts of those poor mothers and fathers whose children have been ripped from the womb, U.S. vice president Joe Biden said this week, in a speech to a Chinese audience, that he fully understands and will not "second-guess" the coercive one child per family policy of the Chinese government.

Interestingly, Sanger said during her 1922 Carnegie Hall speech, "I found out that a rumor had spread throughout the country, before I arrived, that I was a secret agent of the American government, sent to deplete the population by my own special magic and miraculous method. They said that I was the advance agent of an American invasion."

If you look at the state of the world today, and how Planned Parenthood has forced its evil agenda worldwide, with the full support of the United Nations and the U.S. government, her nasty little joke turned out to be extremely, and pathetically, prophetic.

Planned Parenthood has flourished because it has done such an efficient job of covering up its true agenda, while grabbing billions of taxpayer dollars to carry out its diabolical plans. In areas where Planned Parenthood has been exposed and defunded, it has folded. God is so much stronger than evil-including Planned Parenthood.

Kansas: Federal court usurps state's sovereignty--attempts to keep tax money flowing to failing Planned Parenthood facilities

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten issued an injunction earlier this month blocking legislation that places Planned Parenthood in Kansas at the bottom of the priority list for receiving $330,000 in Title X funds.

The State of Kansas appealed the ruling.

According to an article penned by Kathy Ostrowski, which appears on the Kansans for Life website:

Marten's ruling was taken apart, point by point, in a 24-page brief penned by James Armstrong of the Foulston-Siefkin law firm, hired to handle this issue by state Attorney General Derek Schmidt.

Armstrong argues that Marten "added words" to the Title X federal statute and wrongly decreed that grantees may not freely sub-contract, and must use any qualified applicant-which is simply not in the law.

In fact, Armstrong points out that if Marten's error were really the law, then in those states where Planned Parenthood is the grantee, it could be forced to subcontract with pro-life entities!

Marten is faulted for failing to dismiss "rank speculations" about irreparable harm to Planned Parenthood and accepting their "naked allegation" that clientele could not be handled by the Wichita health department.

In an August 22 article, Ostrowski says:

Planned Parenthood of Kansas Mid-Missouri is without a Title X contract for services in Kansas this year because it does not provide primary and preventative care; yet it wants the state to rescue its failing Kansas clinics to the tune of an immediate $80 thousand dollars-all before any services are rendered.

In today's federal court filing, Planned Parenthood demands Kansas pay a financial penalty, including a fine of $1000 "for each day that the contempt continues" for "causing Planned Parenthood to suffer considerable ongoing harm."

Earlier filings point out Planned Parenthood lost approximately $240,000 on both clinics last year, which is why they are so desperate to get Title X money of approximately $330,000.

Planned Parenthood is demanding quarterly pre-payment the way they were formerly funded and rebuffing temporary monthly payment-after-services, as offered in a formal compromise by the state last Friday. The state:

  • had asked for a clarification of funding ordered to Planned Parenthood by Judge Thomas Marten on Aug.1, and re-ordered Aug. 17;
  • offered partial funding that would be refunded when the state wins the lawsuit; and
  • requires that Planned Parenthood post a bond.

Planned Parenthood attorneys argue the request for bond is late and unnecessary, but since their businesses are in the red, it seems a wise requirement. After all, it is the state's public health department which would suffer the loss if Planned Parenthood defaults.

STOPP congratulates all those in Kansas who are working so hard to ensure that the legislation defunding Planned Parenthood prevails.


Komen still giving grants to Planned Parenthood

American Life League staff recently undertook an examination of the Susan G. Komen affiliates' federal forms 990 to determine the amounts being given directly to Planned Parenthood affiliates by Komen affiliates.

Here are the numbers for 2009-2010.

Bringing Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary: Reading, PA

 

 

This YouTube video was taken in October when America Needs Fatima brought Our Lady to the Planned Parenthood facility in Reading, PA. Though the day was rainy, those who came to pray persevered in praying the rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Every day is a good time to bring Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary. Please join our campaign today, to bring an end to Planned Parenthood!


Victory: Sherman, TX Planned Parenthood shuts down

American Life League Associate group Texoma Pro-Life Association sends the good news of the week:

After 7 years of prayer, petitions, and hard work, the Planned Parenthood facility in Sherman, TX, is shutting its doors. They are scheduled to close on August 23, 2011.

We ask for prayers for the former employees of the Sherman Planned Parenthood facility and we give all the glory and praise to God for this amazing accomplishment.

Since the inception of Texoma Pro-Life Association, its stated goal was to shut down the Sherman Planned Parenthood facility.

The facility closed in the wake of $58 million dollars of funding cuts in Texas, which prompted the closure of a cluster of Planned Parenthood facilities. Other Texas Planned Parenthood facilities on the chopping block include Gainesville, Plano, Waxahachie, Mesquite, Arlington North, and Terrell.

Congratulations to the dedicated prayer warriors of Texoma Pro-Life Association and other Texans whose prayer and hard work resulted in the defunding and closure of the Sherman facility.

The Texas closures are more proof that prayer, local activism, and defunding cause Planned Parenthood facilities to fall like a house of cards. Visit our Defund Planned Parenthood Action Center today where you will find many of the tools you need to defund the abortion giant. We look forward to the closure of many more Planned Parenthood facilities.
