Planned Parenthood and the dark religion of abortion

Abortion worship has moved to center stage this week with the publication of Jill Stanek's exposé of a radical feminist mother who worked at Planned Parenthood and an independent abortion mill, and forced her young daughter to play an intimate role in the culture of death, culminating in the celebratory slaughter of her own grandchild.

Through the years, several books have been written by "religious" abortion promoters and radical feminists who attempt to sanctify abortion, and subsequently abortion has been referred to by Planned Parenthood officials as "sacred." A few examples:

  • The Rev. Tom Davis, chair of the Clergy Advisory Board of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, penned a book entitled Sacred Work: Planned Parenthood and its Clergy Alliances, in which he attempts to morally justify abortion as being demanded in the name of social justice.

  • Sacred Choices: The Right to Contraception and Abortion in Ten World Religions, written by Daniel Maguire, is the centerpiece for a global initiative that seeks to give moral license to contraception and abortion. It is linked from the web site of Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes.

  • The Sacrament of Abortion, written by radical feminist Ginette Paris, calls for "restoring abortion to its sacred dimension." She cites as an example the pagan goddess Artemis in giving justification for taking innocent human life and believes abortion is a sometimes necessary and sacred sacrifice. She says that, until women have power over both life and death, they don't have any real power.

  • When Planned Parenthood opened its new abortion facility in Schenectady, New York, the Albany Times Union reported that in a ceremony called "On Sacred Ground," the Rev. Larry Phillips of Schenectady's Emmanuel-Friedens Church declared the ground "sacred and holy... where women's voices and stories are welcomed, valued and affirmed; sacred ground where women are treated with dignity, supported in their role as moral decision-makers... sacred ground where the violent voices of hatred and oppression are quelled."

  • In June of 2010 when Planned Parenthood opened its 78,000 square foot abortion mega-center in Houston, Planned Parenthood referred to it as "sacred and holy ground."

Those deeply involved in the pro-life battle have long known the reality of the dark religion of abortion.

  • In 1989, Texas pro-life activist Chad Traywick discovered the mutilated body of a late term preborn baby in a Houston abortion center. He took pictures of the baby and had them developed at a local quick photo lab. Returning to his home after dropping off the photos, he found his home surrounded by the Houston SWAT team. They told him that the baby was mutilated in a way identical to mutilations done as a part of satanic worship services. The baby was named David, and the tragic photos of his mutilated body appear today on Priests for Life web site. Chad was a guest in my home shortly after he found Baby David, and related the story to me personally. Posters were made from the horrifying pictures, and have been used widely at Planned Parenthood abortion centers to save lives.

  • This week Jill Stanek presented a particularly chilling story about Abigail, the daughter of an abortion nurse, detailing the horrors of a young girl who grew up with a radical feminist mother who worked at Planned Parenthood and an independent abortion mill. She celebrated her own abortion, put Abigail on oral contraceptives at the age of 11, forced her to wear Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered pins on her backpack and encouraged her to identify herself as bisexual at the age of 12. At 13, she forced Abigail to be an abortion "deathscort," and forced her to have an abortion when she was in college. The abortion procedure took place within the context of a celebration, with Abigail surrounded by her mother's friends - one of whom drove many miles to join the celebration. Abigail remembers her mother telling her how proud she was of her immediately after the abortion - the only time in her life her mother had ever expressed such sentiments.

    Abigail told Stanek that abortion worship is very real. "It can sound fantastical, but some go so far as to worship death goddesses like Kali and Hecate and consider abortion to be a form of sacrifice," she said.

  • In June of this year, Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer, then-president of Human Life International and an official exorcist of the Catholic Church, wrote that "no human activity glorifies Satan and his minions more than abortion." He wrote further:

    The abortion industry is our modern-day Valley of Slaughter, where abortionists offer ritual blood sacrifice to that ancient demon of child murder. Their work is in every way the key ritual of a demonic religion. Yes, a religion: Abortion has an infallible dogma ("choice"), a ruling hierarchy (Planned Parenthood), theologians (feminist ideologues), a sacrificing priesthood (abortionists), temples (abortion mills), altars of sacrifice (surgical tables), ritual victims (babies and also women), acolytes and sacristans (clinic workers and technicians), guardian angels (police and death-scorts), congregations (leftist foundations and private supporters), and its own version of "grace" that makes everything work (money).

The battle against Planned Parenthood is a battle against the forces of evil. It is extreme spiritual warfare, and if we are to be successful in defeating this most vile manifestation of evil, we must clothe ourselves in prayer and daily seek divine protection and intervention.

On our web site you will find prayers of consecration of this battle to Mary, the Mother of God, as well as signs that you can carry with you when you go to Planned Parenthood to pray. Be sure to avail yourself of her most powerful intervention and pray the rosary for an end to the slaughter of the innocent.

Planned Parenthood activism: A new job-turned-religion

Planned Parenthood is hiring young people to canvass the streets, talk about "women's rights" and solicit funds. Cassandra, a recent inductee, says on her blog: "I have a new religion; it's activism!"

It comes as no surprise that she was led to her Planned Parenthood employment by the career fair at her school. College campuses are strategic targets for Planned Parenthood presence and propaganda.

Cassandra was interviewed and hired on the spot (at her school career fair) for a three-day trial run to see whether she could raise money for PP on the streets of New York City. She raised $65 the first day and $410 on her last day, before she quit, she says, due to her overloaded schedule. She promises to come back to Planned Parenthood, however, because it is her new-found "religion."

This young lady is typical of many college students: already schooled in radical feminism, searching - as evidenced by her recent blog on Mormonism - and easy prey for Planned Parenthood which offered her money to promote its evil agenda when she was struggling to find a job.

Most women who have abortions are college-age. Your local college campus is a place that you cannot afford to overlook in your quest to eliminate Planned Parenthood from your community. Do some research today and find out what role Planned Parenthood is playing there. Then organize a campaign to expose Planned Parenthood to the community. It is crucial that students who are opposed to Planned Parenthood run the campaign to remove Planned Parenthood from the campus, with the assistance of local pro-life groups.

Here is a link to the list of current VOX (Voices of Planned Parenthood) chapters across the country.

Today is the time to act. Planned Parenthood zealots are running a well-organized, over-funded machine that, left unchecked, will be the cause of the collapse of our society.

It is up to people in the local communities to fight Planned Parenthood at every turn, to build a solid wall of resistance to Planned Parenthood and its forceful advance into our communities and campuses. Begin with prayer and launch your college campus research today.

Student surprises Planned Parenthood speaker with a question she refuses to answer

Spokane 40 Days for Life relates a recent story from a local school where a student didn't take the Planned Parenthood "talk" without fighting back.

A Planned Parenthood representative gave a talk last week to a health class at a Spokane, WA, high school. At the close of her presentation a sophomore raised his hand and, when the speaker called on him to speak, he asked her what it felt like working for a place that kills babies.

Her response: "Um, I forgot I had to leave before the bell rang." And she exited immediately.

Kudos to this sophomore for asking a most poignant question. It's a shame someone at the school decision-making level didn't ask that and many more questions, and exclude Planned Parenthood from the campus before it had a chance to reach the young people.

Our new STOPP web site has an entire section devoted to keeping Planned Parenthood out of your schools. Please visit us and begin working today to cut Planned Parenthood off at the pass before it has a chance to reach our young people in their classrooms.

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest expanding

With more and more of our dollars being routed to Planned Parenthood via the Obama administration, we are seeing some Planned Parenthood affiliates aggressively expanding their operations.

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest (PPPSW) has been lurking in San Diego and Riverside, California since 1963, and will soon move into Imperial County. The PP affiliate operates a whopping 19 facilities at the present time.

From East to West: Bringing Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary

Darci Gomolski sends this picture of her 11-year-old son Alex bringing Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary in Spokane, Washington, as a part of the 40 Days for Life vigil there. God bless Darci, Alex and all the selfless individuals who are taking a stand against Planned Parenthood in Spokane.

Meanwhile, on the East Coast, Eileen Peterson sends word that at the beginning of the Spring Valley, NY, 40 Days for Life vigil, one of the prayer volunteers had to leave Planned Parenthood with no one there to relieve her. She called Eileen, who left work only to find when she arrived at Planned Parenthood 45 minutes later that all of her signs and banners had been stolen.

"Perhaps our Heavenly Father wanted to start our 40 Days off with a lesson of forgiveness and love. Perhaps our Mother wanted Our Lady of Guadalupe front and center," she said. "Love flowed. God provides. No one can ever steal from you what is in your heart. Spring Valley, New York, is where goodness triumphed over evil today!"

The signs below are the ones that graced Planned Parenthood that afternoon after the others were stolen:

Text messages save child's life at Planned Parenthood abortion mill

Operation Rescue reports that a sidewalk counselor in Albuquerque, NM, took advantage of technology to reach a 17-year-old young lady who was inside the Planned Parenthood abortion mill at the insistence of her mother last week awaiting an abortion that she did not want.

Having obtained the cell phone number of "Jane" (not her real name) from a concerned relative of the young lady's boyfriend, Tara Shaver sent her a text message, promising help if she would walk out of the facility. Jane responded that her parents would not let her leave. Tara reassured Jane that her parents could not force her to have the abortion.

Tara advised Jane to look at the ultrasound and even texted her a picture of a baby at 6 weeks gestation, identical to Jane's baby's gestational age.

Tara asked Jane to go outside and told her she would be there in a few minutes. Jane replied, "Please come now."

The two finally met and Tara got Jane the help she needed.

Thanks be to God for Tara Shaver, who set aside her personal life to answer a plea for the life of an unborn child, and for the concerned relative who sought out a sidewalk counselor who would step out in faith and give her all to save the little child's life.

Unsung heroines like Tara step out of their personal comfort zone every day and endure much persecution and hardship for the sake of the innocent ones they seek to save outside the Planned Parenthood abortion mills of our nation. Please remember all sidewalk counselors and the mothers and babies they seek to assist in your daily prayers.
