Planned Parenthood survives and thrives on coattails of fed

The Obama administration has once again shown that it has no respect for the will of the people or for state’s rights, as it methodically continues its tyrannical march, hell bent on making all Americans bow at the altar of Planned Parenthood.

With 426,000 federally provided Title X dollars in its pocket, PP of Central North Carolina is walking away from its lawsuit against the state with a Cheshire cat grin on its face. When the state legislature stripped $125,000 from the sex-belching abortion giant, Obama and cohorts came to the rescue with more than three times the amount the state stripped. The move can only be construed as a punitive measure visited upon the voters of North Carolina who, through their elected representatives, made it a priority to defund Planned Parenthood.

Backtracking on its threat to close its Durham facility because of the state’s defunding, Planned Parenthood now promises to not only keep the facility open, but to increase its clientele dramatically. Title X funds are used by the abortion giant, according to Abby Johnson, to get into the minority neighborhoods and drum up business, promising recent immigrants and poverty-stricken women free healthcare, then selling them contraceptives and the resultant STD treatment, and abortions when the contraception fails.

Federal level strong-arm tactics are overwhelming state defunding successes in several states as the Obama administration overreaches its boundaries, steamrolling state’s rights. In New Hampshire, Tennessee, and New Jersey, the fed has directly intervened to fund Planned Parenthood, successfully thwarting state defunding efforts. In Texas, Obama and cohorts stripped $30 million in Medicaid waiver funds following PP’s booting from the waiver program. Clearly, the Obama administration does not have the rights of voters at heart. Rather, it has an overarching agenda that it works tirelessly to promote.

Appearing recently at a conference of NYC bloggers via conference call, Obama affirmed his strong-arm tactics as protector-in-chief of the nation’s largest abortion chain, saying his political opponents “promise to take away access to health care and contraception. They talk about getting rid of vital services like Planned Parenthood.”

“I’m not going to give any ground to those who would deny women their own health care choices,” he said.

Thank God that Americans still have the right to vote, and will exercise that right in November. If the majority take advantage of that right today, and work to elect officials at every level who will work tirelessly to truly and permanently defund Planned Parenthood, the yoke of oppression can and will be lifted.

Planned Parenthood behind two-child 'Reproductive Health' bill in Philippines

Some 9,000 Filipino Catholics braved drenching rains on Saturday, July 28, to protest and pray against the ‘Reproductive Health’ legislation. The legislation is the result of years of Planned Parenthood’s insidious work in the Philippines.

LifeSiteNews reports that thousands converged on a Marian shrine in Manila to pray and protest against HB 4244, which follows Planned Parenthood’s carefully laid plan for the predominantly Catholic residents of the Philippines.

As we recently reported, Planned Parenthood and its cronies have been working for over a decade toward enactment of the “Reproductive Health” (RH) bill, which provides for the universal distribution of all methods of birth control, including abortifacient pills, injections, and IUDs. Section 20 of the bill, entitled Ideal Family Size, says the state will “encourage [couples] to have two children as the ideal family size,” while saying that is neither mandatory nor compulsory.

Though Planned Parenthood and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) have been pushing their agenda in the Philippines for more than a decade, the current president, Benigno Aquino III, is the first president of the Philippines willing to set his Catholic faith aside and embrace the bill, signaling dire danger for the people of the Philippines, with pro-abortion forces predicting legalized abortion there in less than three years.

Using foreign funding as leverage, the UNFPA had delivered $26 million to advance its agenda in the Philippines as of October 2008.

The bill follows International Planned Parenthood Federation’s game plan set out in its declaration of sexual rights, touting “freedom of choice” as a right fully guaranteed by the state, touting gender equality and gender equity, requiring mandatory sex education for children in fifth grade and up, and imposing heavy fines on those who refuse to distribute contraception or participate in sterilizations. In an attempt to silence all opposition, the bill also provides jail time and fines for those who give “malicious disinformation” about it.

“In other words, the RH Bill is a complete package designed to integrate the anti-life mentality into the fabric of the nation. It is plainly a ‘lethal injection’ to the soul of the Philippines, as the European experience has shown us,” said Dr. Brian Clowes, director of research and training for Human Life International.

The legislation, titled “An Act Providing for a National Policy on Reproductive Health, Responsible Parenthood and Population Development, and for Other Purposes,” calls for up to six months of imprisonment and heavy fines for anyone who openly challenges the law and tries to inform others of the dangers of contraception and abortion. Eileen Macapanas Cosby, president of the Filipino Family Fund, explained, “International Planned Parenthood has sold false presuppositions that access to contraception will alleviate poverty and decrease the number of abortions. Many who do not have an understanding of Catholic social teachings have bought this. Precisely because the country is Catholic, [Planned Parenthood] has targeted the Philippines.”

The Philippines is now threatened by legislation that could enact a policy very similar to China’s one-child policy and would result in the deaths of many children through abortion and contraception. Watch Human Life International’s documentary on the harm the bill poses to the people of the Philippines, and lift the people of the Philippines up in prayer as they struggle to maintain their religious freedom under increasing pressure from Planned Parenthood and its cohorts.


Planned Parenthood sidestepped calling 911 in abortion death

In the wake of the death of 24-year-old Tonya Reaves, who bled to death following a Planned Parenthood abortion in Chicago, Operation Rescue has uncovered the fact that PP personnel delayed arrival of emergency medical help by intentionally dialing 311, rather than 911.

The 311 number that Planned Parenthood called is used mainly for obtaining information on city-related events and non-emergency matters. Planned Parenthood personnel called 311, apparently to sidestep an easily discoverable 911 call, which resulted in delaying the emergency services needed by the young mother who lay bleeding for more than five hours prior to her death.

The transcript of the phone conversation shows the Planned Parenthood employee laughing as she attempts to explain why she called 311 rather than 911:

Dispatcher: Okay, and once you called - you see, next time you need a police car to come out for any reason whatsoever, you need to call 911.
Caller: Right. Okay. I just -
Dispatcher: That way you don’t waste time with 311.
Caller: I know, I know, I just (laugh) I just hate to use services to make, you know -
Dispatcher: I know. Well, they don’t dispatch police cars. All they do is transfer you to 911.
Caller: Gotcha.
Dispatcher: So you’re waiting in that queue and then they flip you over to our office.
Caller: Right.
Dispatcher: Now I don’t have any of your information. So, what is your telephone number?

Earlier in the day, the same Planned Parenthood facility had called 911 to report a mother assaulting her daughter at the facility. Yet, a woman hemorrhaging to death from a second trimester abortion did not merit an emergency call. So, who is really waging a war on women? The facts are clear: The war on women emanates from Planned Parenthood facilities and continues day in and day out, where innocent children—and sometimes their mothers—are killed in the name of women’s health and reproductive freedom.


Obamacare mandates free contraceptives and sterilization for preteens

Building a child predator’s dream scenario, Obamacare now provides—at taxpayers’ expense—free contraceptives and sterilization for all women with reproductive capacity. That means your neighborhood child predator can take his 12-year-old (or younger) victim to Planned Parenthood, assuming she has had her first menstrual period, and get contraceptives or even sterilization free of charge, smoothing the way for continued and protracted child sexual abuse.

Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee that has oversight over the Affordable Care Act. She says the HHS mandate was designed to “protect the health of women, women of all ages,” but said she was unaware that it mandated insurance policies provide free sterilization of teens.

As of August 1, all women of reproductive age—from menarche to menopause—are “entitled” to free sterilization and contraceptives under the mandate that also rips religious freedom away from employers who conscientiously object to such outrages. Certainly at 12 or younger, these girls don’t want or need contraceptives or sterilization, but those who prey upon them find comfort and convenience in being so easily (and affordably) able to cover up their horrifying crimes.

Planned Parenthood’s presence in our communities—whether through its brick and mortar facilities, its internet and cell phone presence, or its encroachment into community groups and schools—can and must be stopped.

Bringing Jesus to PP through Mary: Virginia Beach

Consecrating our efforts to stop Planned Parenthood to Our Lady and building a solid wall of resistance to the abortion giant are essential elements in eliminating PP from our communities. Pro-life advocates in Virginia Beach do an exemplary job on both fronts.

In a July 30 e-mail to STOPP, Frances wrote about the Virginia Beach protest against Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia’s fundraiser “Roevolution,” a party held at the campus of PP’s abortion center on Newtown Road that featured live music, an art contest, art auction, and free STI/HIV testing. At the suggestion of STOPP director, Rita Diller, pro-lifers displayed huge pictures of aborted babies, to let party-goers know exactly what they were supporting:

Frances writes:

PPSEV’s event was called “Roevolution” - so we tried to plug our signs into that name. You can see we used ALL’s “Roe’s been saved” signs. We just personalized them.

Also our local CPC had its annual event in the fall called (Love) Revolution, so I’m sure Roevolution was a take-off of that.

Folks did turn away from attending the event, and it actually was very poorly attended. PP did try to have its security guard intimidate us in the afternoon before the event, but we were not deterred.

Thanks for your beautiful ministry! We all count on you.

      

 

We give thanks to God for Frances, Louantha, and all the faithful pro-life advocates in the Virginia Beach/Hampton Roads area who continually challenge Planned Parenthood at every turn. They ensure that Planned Parenthood’s death-dealing business agenda will not go unnoticed, and their persistent, peaceful, prayerful presence ensures that Planned Parenthood’s days in Virginia Beach are numbered.
