House Pulls Plug on Funding of Scandal-plagued Planned Parenthood

IMG_0996Today the United States House of Representatives voted to defund Planned Parenthood. The bill now goes to the desk of President Obama, a secular humanist and an ally of PP who will veto the bill. But he and his values-challenged political party will own that veto.

There’s no way this corrupt organization deserves a nickel of taxpayer funding. Alliance Defending Freedom is suing PP for allegedly defrauding the government. Furthermore, PP is in court defending itself from charges of cashing in abortion profits while refusing to report individuals for raping under-age girls.

ADF attorney Kellie Fiedorek said, “The House has voted the will of the majority of Americans with this legislation, which makes Planned Parenthood ineligible to receive federal tax dollars and redirects those funds to support the thousands of better low-cost healthcare options for women and families. This historic vote recognizes the many issues of a scandal-plagued organization with a long track record of abusive and potentially fraudulent billing practices, caught in authenticated undercover videos trafficking aborted babies’ body parts, and that has repeatedly failed to report the sexual abuse of girls.

Obama has collected $1 million from Planned Parenthood in campaign contributions in the 2012 election cycle, making him the abortion giant’s top cash recipient. Planned Parenthood officials have visited the White House 151 times in the last six years of the Obama presidency. What’s more, Planned Parenthood helped shape Obamacare, which is a none-too-thinly-veiled money-making scheme for Planned Parenthood.

Oh yeah, the fix is in.

A Response to Planned Parenthood’s Anger Gram

Here’s the message posted on the Planned Parenthood website:

To those who go to unimaginable extremes to close our doors:

We deplore your violence. We reject your threats. We fight your legislation to limit reproductive rights and health care in every corner of our country.

We believe your actions and words hurt women — whether by making it impossible to seek health care or by creating a climate of disrespect and hostility that fosters extremist violence.

We demand an end to the incendiary rhetoric from anti-abortion activists and lawmakers that demonizes Planned Parenthood doctors and patients. The smear campaign and false accusations that motivated the attack in Colorado Springs must stop.

We aren’t going anywhere. Planned Parenthood has been here for nearly 100 years, and we will keep being here as long as women, men, and young people need health care with dignity.

To those who go to shocking extremes to close our doors, know this:

These doors stay open.

Now read The Arizona Conservative’s response to Planned Parenthood:

To those who go to unimaginable extremes to degrade our culture and put profit over life:

We deplore your killing of 330,000 innocent Americans each year. And the maiming and physical and psychological wounding of countless women. And refusing to put health and safety first. And defrauding the government of taxpayer money. And refusing to report the rapes of under-age girls.

We reject your defiance, your questionable practices and your lack of ethics.

We vow to hold you accountable for the degradation of humanity.

We see you hurting women, killing children, looking the other way at rapists, your hypocritical pretense at standing for the women you exploit and your blatant disregard for America’s taxpayers.

We demand an end to your anger and your incendiary, hateful rhetoric, as well as your lies about having done mammograms and your false claim that a “smear campaign and false accusations” caused a mentally deranged madman to go on a shooting spree at Colorado Springs. Your words are defamatory, slanderous and libelous. As well as insulting. Stop pretending to speak for women – whom you exploit.

We are thankful you are in retreat. Many of your clinics are closing down, rather than meet state health regulations (putting women at heightened risk), rather than hire doctors who have admittance at hospitals. You wouldn’t know the word dignity if it stared you right in the face.

Your house of cards is unraveling. Corporations are hiding their associations with you.

Abortion is in decline. You are in retreat. The truth is coming out. You’ve been taking our culture down. And we will not go with you. Your doors will stay open for now, but there are fewer of them.

Peace on earth. Good will to men, women and children.

Leftists Know so Much that isn’t True Part I.

You’ll frequently hear leftists say that conservatives and Christians are taking America backwards. The facts don’t support them. Here’s a list of how leftists are corrupting the culture and taking America down.

Vulgar Left Spins its Wheels over Colorado Tragedy

As sure as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, you can count on the far Left to lie, spin and spread false narratives about news and issues. The tragic murder of three people in Colorado Springs recently is another case in point.

Rob Boston, a blogger for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, spun these ridiculous claims:

In the wake of Friday’s horrific shootings at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, we’re hearing calls to deescalate the rhetoric around the issue of abortion.

The implication is that both sides are reaching for rhetorical excess. The problem with this claim is that it’s demonstrably untrue.

Pro-choice advocates have argued calmly in favor of reproductive choice for years.  They’ve marshalled facts and figures. They have pointed out that Planned Parenthood provides an array of services to men and women, many of whom are low income. They’ve challenged anti-choice activists to explain how these services would be provided if Planned Parenthood were defunded.

The response from many in the anti-choice community has been nowhere near as reasoned. They have ignored the facts, repeatedly employed the most lurid rhetoric imaginable and lobbed charges that don’t stand up to scrutiny. On the fringe of the movement rest people who advocate and employ violence.

These assertions are laughable and completely false to those of us who have been paying attention to the civility/incivility of the debate. It is disingenuous for the people who claim they have the right to kill the most defenseless among us to act as if they are the more caring crowd and to feign shock and surprise when man exhibits his inhumanity to man. How do people on the Left sleep at night knowing they’ve spent the last day lying and they’re going to spend the following day lying again?

The Colorado murderer, who appeared to be mentally unstable in his court appearance, believes he possesses the moral right to take innocent people’s lives. This is the same belief that abortionists and other leftists demand. His actions followed his beliefs, and his actions are diametrically opposed to and, 180 degrees apart from the views and actions of people who do not believe others should have the legal choice to take a person’s life. Whether it is a pre-born child or an elderly or depressed person.

Every human being’s life is precious. Those of us on the Right condemn murderous acts in all contexts — including abortion and euthanasia. Police authorities in Colorado said they do not yet know the shooter’s motives. For anyone to declare knowledge of motive now is irresponsible and dishonest.

If abortion activists really believe that toxic rhetoric incites violence, they should cease their own toxic rhetoric and end the false accusations against pro-life people. We will show you some of their hateful, vile, vulgar, disgusting remarks below, in a moment.

The pro-life movement champions life for all.  The Left has given America a culture of death which does not value human life. The Colorado shooter’s criminal acts contradict the actions and philosophy of a peaceful movement of millions of pro-life Americans.

Public policy regarding the protection of human life must be discussed with conviction and civility. Boston and his fellow leftists should not politicize and exploit a tragedy that has torn apart the lives of the victims’ families. AU and others should not attempt to capitalize on the murderous acts of one deranged person for political gain. This is a time to come alongside the families of those who tragically lost their lives. This is also yet another time to consider how our nation can stop mentally unstable people from going on killing rampages.

Planned Parenthood is not an innocent victim. The killer’s horrendous acts do not exonerate an organization under multiple state and federal investigations with a years-long, nationwide pattern of waste, abuse, and potentially fraudulent behavior.

This is also a time to recognize true heroism, the true grit of Officer Garrett Swasey, killed that day. He risked his life to save others. That’s courage, when one lays down his life for his fellow man.

Okay, now let’s get to the “reasoned” pro-choice Left, as Boston alleges:

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that companies with religious objections may opt out of covering contraceptives for women, the Associated Press reported. The news did not sit well with pro-abortion liberals who decried the ruling. Some, Twitchy said, were so angry they called for burning down Hobby Lobby in violent, profane tweets.

“[L]iterally burn hobby lobby (sic) to the ground,” one pro-abortion liberal screamed on Twitter.

“I hope all your stores burn to the ground,” another person said.

“#HobbyLobby are scum of the earth. Burn every single one down, build a homeless shelter there instead,” a third person said.

“Is Hobby Lobby now authorized to sterilize these women? What the hell are they talking about?” one person asked. The answer, of course, is no, Hobby Lobby is not allowed to sterilize women, but “closely held” corporations like Hobby Lobby are not required to pay for contraception if they have deeply-held religious views against it. According to the AP, the ruling only applies to those companies controlled by just a few people where there is basically no difference between the company and its owners.

And this over-the-top anger didn’t start with the Hobby Lobby decision. No, it has been prevalent for a long, long time.

Read this from the Democrat Underground — if you can stomach it:

The f—– up part is that these f—— “pro-life” f—- claim the moral high ground, saying they are part of the “culture of life”. Well I don’t see a cultures of life, I see a culture of suffering and death. These people aren’t even fit to lick week old dog s— off of my f—— boots.

 

The Left has a major problem with anger, incivility and vulgarity. The people who value each and every individual human life are the adults in the room. The bitter, angry Left keeps spinning … and spinning its wheels.

Peace on earth and good will toward men.

New Book Exposes Left-Stream Media’s Folly over HB1062

Less than two years ago, extremists on the far Left fringe and their media lemmings in Arizona and around the nation successfully waged a campaign of fear, deceit and distortion against a state religious freedom bill, HB 1062. They stampeded Gov. Jan Brewer into fearfully vetoing this harmless, but helpful, bill. Virtually every television station in Arizona bought the lies of homosexual activists … hook, line and sinker, and engaged in yellow journalism. Even a Phoenix sportscaster, Mike Jurecki, foolishly shot off his mouth about what the bill would not do, further spreading the Big Lie, the Big Narrative of the Left. We saw again how gullible, how ignorant and misinformed and how horribly misguided the left-stream media really is. And just how easily the left-stream media could be led by extreme leftists, without pretending to be fair or factual.

Outside of The Arizona Conservative, there were few in this state who really stood up to speak the truth to this manufactured “crisis.”

Now Ryan Anderson of The Heritage Foundation has addressed what happened here — in his book “Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom.” He writes the following in Chapter 5: Religious Freedom: A Basic Human Right. We think this is well worth your read:

In February 2014, the State of Arizona considered a minor legislative clarification to its state RFRA, attracting incendiary media coverage. The New York Times editorialized that the Arizona legislation had passed “noxious measures to give businesses and individuals the broad right to deny services to same-sex couples in the name of protecting religious liberty.”

The Times got it wrong. The Arizona bill, an amendment to the stat’s 1999 RFRA protections, never even mentioned same-sex couples. In provided that the RFRA protections would extend to any “state action” and would apply to “any individual, association, partnership, corporation, church, religious assembly or institution or other business organization. In other words, the bill would have protected all citizens and the associations they form from undue burdens by the government on their religious liberty and from private lawsuits that would have the same effect.

Kirsten Powers jumped into the fray with a USA Today column misleadingly titled “Arizona Latest to Attack Gay Rights.” She warned that the law “would result in nothing less than chaos,” even though the federal government has operated under the same rules for twenty years and Arizona had had similar protections since 1999. A bipartisan group of law professors set the record straight in a letter to Governor Jan Brewer:

The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics …

We should not punish people for practicing their religion unless we have a very good reason. Arizona has had a RFRA for nearly fifteen years now; the federal government has had one since 1993; and RFRA’s standard was the constitutional standard for the entire country from 1963 to 1990 …

[The proposed law] would amend the Arizona RFRA to address two ambiguities that have been the subject of litigation under other RFRA’s. It would provide that people are covered when state or local government requires them to violate their religion in the conduct of their businesses, and it would provide that people are covered when sued by a private citizen invoking state or local law to demand that they violate their religion.

The rhetoric about giving bigots a license not to serve gays and lesbians was simply nonsensical. Indeed, religious liberty claims in connection with same-sex marriage have never been about turning away certain persons or groups, but about not endorsing certain actions or ceremonies.

But the lies worked, and Governor Brewer, a Republican, vetoed the bill. Among those applying pressure were Arizona’s two Republican senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake, as well as Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney [and State Senator Bob Worsley], showing that both political parties are susceptible to abandoning principle once the media dial up the heat. Or big business. National Football League officials expressed concern about holding the Super Bowl in Arizona, as scheduled, should the religious liberty bill be enacted.

The scholar’s letter flew right over the head of the frightened governor, who vetoed the bill and got the rabid radicals off her back.

Arizona’s Women and Children Caught in the Crosshairs

Governor Doug Ducey just issued a proclamation for “Domestic Violence Awareness Month”:

Hello, this is Governor Doug Ducey.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

This is a serious issue that affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in Arizona.

Every Arizonan has the right to feel safe in his or her own home. 

To those in abusive situations – you are not alone. Please reach out to a loved one and ask for help, or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233. 

You have my word: the Sate of Arizona will prosecute those who commit domestic violence with the full force of the law. 

By working together, we can protect our fellow citizens and get them the support they need. Thank you.

This is a good start, governor, but it ignores a great big elephant in the living room: domestic partner benefits, offered by the City of Phoenix and other misguided secular humanist organizations.

Why do they encourage cohabitation by rewarding it with domestic partner benefits? This fact alone should discourage them from it:

In the U.S. and Canada, cohabiting women are nine times more likely to be killed by their live-in boyfriend than married women by their husband.

Once again, we call on Arizona taxpayers to demand an end to this misguided policy placing women and children at heightened risks of serious harm.

And if that isn’t enough of a risk for children, Equality Arizona — the state’s most radical homosexual pressure group — is demanding legislation to clear the way for homosexual adoption in Arizona:

There are 18,000 children in Arizona’s foster care system, but discrimination and institutional barriers can prevent LGBTQ families from becoming foster and adoptive families and accessing resources. Our campaign, Project Jigsaw is working to connect every child to a loving family.

These leftist pressure groups and their friends in the White House and the left-stream media repeat a narrative that same-sex relationships are automatically “loving.” But that, as usual with the Left, is a false and dishonest narrative.

Because domestic violence among lesbians is extremely high. Just look at the sad saga of Phoenix Mercury lesbian Britney Greiner and her former wife, both arrested for beating up on each other earlier this year. This is not uncommon. It is unsafe and unhealthy for children to be placed in these environments.

And for a great many male homosexuals, they engage in a parade of anonymous sexual exploits and expose children to serious risks. Dawn Stefanowicz grew up in such a dark home environment:

Dawn’s story is not the exception.

Yes, children need loving homes to grow up in — with a married man and woman. If we as a people in Arizona have the will to resist calls for political correctness, children will have a better chance for a happy, peaceful, loving home. That is what we need our governor to stand up and fight for. Because he will be pressured to do the wrong thing. Governor Ducey, do the right thing.

House Votes to Defund Corrupt Planned Parenthood

The U.S. House of Representatives voted today for legislation that would temporarily de-fund Planned Parenthood while an investigation continues into it s sale of aborted babies and their body parts.

Rep. Diane Black, a Tennessee Republican who is the pro-life lawmaker sponsoring the legislation and a nurse for more than 40 years, sponsored the legislation. The bill would freeze Planned Parenthood funding for one year while Congress conducts an investigation into its sales of aborted babies. The House vote would follow one the Senate had weeks ago, which saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer funding. The Senate is expected to vote soon on a second attempt to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

A new Congressional report finds that de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business — even for one year — would save “several thousand” unborn babies from the nightmare of abortion. The report also finds de-funding Planned Parenthood would save the federal government $235 million.

During the debate, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke on the House floor in defense of innocent human life and urged his colleagues to put a moratorium on Planned Parenthood funding in light of its barbaric practices.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

“So if we know that this organization performs hundreds of thousands of abortions per year and we know that women have access to other sources for care, the question is, should we force taxpayers to fund a business that spends its money aborting 327,653 children per year?  Should we force taxpayers to fund an organization whose barbaric practices, as vividly shown in those videos, disregard and devalue the sanctity of the most innocent human lives?” he asked.

He added: “There is no reason—absolutely no reason—that we must choose between funding women’s health and compelling taxpayers to support abortion.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) talked about how Planned Parenthood is not in the business of women’s health care and is really just an abortion company. he said Planned Parenthood has “never, ever, ever done one mammogram, because they are not certified to do mammograms

“In the history of Planned Parenthood, they have never, ever, ever done one mammogram, because they are not certified to do mammograms. They bring people in and refer them out to get their mammograms. So, for those of us –like in my case, three daughters and a wife of 37 years –look, I want good women’s healthcare. So, let’s fund it,” he said. “But, let’s give it directly to the facilities that will do the mammograms and not Planned Parenthood – for them to take their cut.”

President Barack Obama has already threatened to veto the bill.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed that Obama will veto any bill that de-funds Planned Parenthood after 10 shocking videos found that it has sold aborted babies and their body parts.

“We’ve been quite forthright about the president’s opposition to any effort to wholesale defund Planned Parenthood,” Earnest told reporters Wednesday.

Earnest called it “cynical” to use the videos as a reason to de-fund the abortion company, saying it has apologized for the tone of the videos — though Planned Parenthood steadfastly defended selling aborted babies and their body parts for research.

In 2011, House members voted 241-185 for a resolution that would prohibit the Planned Parenthood abortion business from qualifying for family planning funds. The vote saw almost all Republicans supporting de-funding while Democrats generally opposed it. That was the second vote taken to de-fund the abortion giant. An earlier vote in 2011 saw the House de-funded Planned Parenthood on a 240-185 margin.

The 10th video by The Center for Medical Progress features several top-level Planned Parenthood executives discussing the organization’s secretive practices around aborted fetal parts harvesting. The video includes comments from Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director of the organization’s Consortium of Abortion Providers, describing the harvesting of fetal body parts as “donation for remuneration.”

A first hearing has exposed how Planned Parenthood is likely breaking multiple federal laws to sell aborted baby body parts. Next week, a second Congressional hearing into the Planned Parenthood abortion business will take place after 10 videos have exposed how the abortion company sells aborted babies and their body parts for research.

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all nine:

  • In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
  • In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
  • In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
  • In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
  • In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
  • In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
  • In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
  • In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
  • The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.
  • The 10th video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies.The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts

So far, 12 states have responded to the Planned Parenthood videos and launched investigations into their abortion and organ harvesting business including South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Massachusetts, KansasMissouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. The district attorney in Houston Texas is also investigating after the Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion facility was caught selling aborted babies.

Congress has expanded its investigation into the Planned Parenthood abortion business and five states have revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, including Utah, Arkansas, Alabama, New Hampshire and Louisiana and Iowa’s governor has ordered a review of Planned Parenthood funding.

The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.

The federal law that technically prohibits the sale of aborted babies and their body parts was written by a pro-abortion Congressman decades ago and essentially spells out a process by which sellers of aborted baby body parts can meet certain criteria that allows the sales to be legal. That’s why a Colorado congressman has introduced legislation to totally ban the sales of aborted baby body parts.

House Passes Cong. Franks’ Life Bill

If the U.S. Senate passes this bill as well, President Barack Obama will veto it because he is totally beholden to abortion, Planned Parenthood and the culture of death. Nevertheless, we praise Congressman Trent Franks and all voted for this bill. They did the right thing.

028_29Washington, D.C.— Today the House of Representatives passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504) by a vote of 248-177, 1 Present. The legislation, sponsored by the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice Chairman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), would protect all children who are born alive.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act severely penalizes abortion practitioners who violate federal law by killing innocent children who are born during failed abortion procedures. The provisions of the bill directly address concerns raised throughout the House Judiciary Committee’s ongoing investigation into Planned Parenthood. Under this bill, if a born-alive child is cut open for its body parts, or some other overt act is taken to kill the child, the punishment is that for first-degree murder, which can include life in prison or the death penalty.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice Chairman Trent Franks released the following statement after the passage of the bill:

“Today the House of Representatives made a strong statement for children who have no voice in the face of atrocities committed by abortionists. This legislation sends a strong message to those who are in the horrific business of abortions that there are real consequences for those who would kill or abandon children after they are outside a mother’s womb. Today’s debate is a somber reminder of the horrors of abortion, and the atrocities that abortionists like Kermit Gosnell can inflict on babies.

“We are proud that this bill also addresses a primary issue within the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into Planned Parenthood. At the heart of Planned Parenthood’s alleged activities is the harvesting of fetal body parts for profit. This bill severely punishes those abortion practitioners who would kill an innocent baby in order to harvest baby parts.

“We wish to thank our colleagues for supporting this important piece of legislation for the unborn.”

Key Provisions:

  • In the case of an abortion or attempted abortion that results in a child born alive, any health care practitioner present must exercise the same degree of professional care to preserve the life of the child as they would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.
  • Provides that the child must be immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.
  • The bill requires the reporting of any known violations of its provisions.
  • Allows a woman to file a civil lawsuit if her live baby was not treated with the care and respect required by the bill.
