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.

Celebrating 20 Years: One of America’s Truly Premier Family Policy Councils

You just know the Center for Arizona Policy (CAP) is a great organization when you see how exercised the Left gets in demonizing this awesome organization. When someone or some organization is doing God’s bidding, they’re a threat to Satan, and he’ll engage in spiritual warfare against them.

CAP’s entire team has been waging that spiritual battle on our behalf for 20 years. The Center for Arizona Policy is a nonprofit research and education organization committed to promoting and defending the foundational values of life, marriage and family, and religious freedom.

They’ve had a hand in well over a hundred state laws enacted to protect men, women and children. And it’s not just Christians or conservatives who benefit from these laws. ALL Arizonans benefitted. The Left just doesn’t want to admit that.

Over the last 20 years, CAP and its allies have assured many a good policy for Arizona families. And they have helped to prevent bad policy from taking root here. We can thank them that we are not hamstrung by damaging policies fabricated by undiscerning lawmakers beholden to the far Left in other states. We are blessed and fortunate that the Center for Arizona Policy advocates for life, marriage and family, and religious freedom — each of them under withering attack by radical agents of change.

Thankfully, God has blessed CAP’s outstanding efforts with the support of many wise and virtuous state leaders and thousands of citizens whose financial support enabled CAP to emerge as one of the finest family policy councils in America. In fact, it’s one of the very best destinations for your charitable dollars. If you’re one of those persons who wishes someone would “just do something” about the attacks on our values … CAP is your team.

Cathi Herrod has been most capably leading the CAP Team for several years. And Len Munsil led the way before her. They have been vulgarly savaged by the ill-tempered, ill-mannered Left, attacked by the left-stream media people who take their marching orders from Arizona’s leftist organizations. But Cathi, Len and the entire team have considered it an honor to be attacked for their devotion to Christ. They … will … not … back down in their work to promote the policies that benefit Arizona families.

Established in 1995 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening Arizona families through policy and education, CAP has worked with elected officials and members of communities to make Arizona the most welcoming state to raise a family.

To celebrate, Center for Arizona Policy invites you to join its 20-year anniversary celebration, where it will remember the past and look forward to our future. Please be there and show your support for CAP. Help honor this incredible team by attending. You are NOT going to want to miss this night of reflection, celebration, and fellowship.

Dr. Ward Calls on McCain to Defund Scandal-Plagued Planned Parenthood

U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward called on Senator John McCain to vote no on any legislation that funds Planned Parenthood either through a short term Continuing Resolution or a long-term spending bill.

In light of the recent evidence that has surfaced showing Planned Parenthood officials trafficking and selling aborted baby parts for profit, the Ward campaign noted that a growing movement to stop Planned Parenthood from receiving  any taxpayer dollars must take precedence over funding the government.

“If John McCain really wants to make a difference on this Planned Parenthood issue, he won’t just talk, he’ll act – and he’ll take a stand,” said Ward. “By any legislative means necessary these heinous acts must be stopped and this organization must be stripped of its federal funds.”

State Senator Ward called on Senator McCain to use his considerable influence in the U.S. Senate to force Mitch McConnell, the Senate president, to bring up a funding bill that contained no federal money for Planned Parenthood. She also called on him to vote no on any funding bills that contained money for Planned Parenthood should McConnell choose to ignore the requests of conservative members of his chamber. McConnell has been dragging his feet and resisting calls for defunding Planned Parenthood, which is accused of fraudulently over-billing the government for services not rendered and for illegally selling baby body parts.

“It’s time for Senator McCain to stand with conservatives, defund Planned Parenthood and end their taxpayer funding once and for all,” said Ward.

State Leaders Put Planned Parenthood on Notice

In light of recent allegations of unlawful practices and procedures being performed by Planned Parenthood, Governor Doug Ducey today directed the Arizona Department of Health Services to conduct a thorough review of current law and immediately promulgate emergency rules designed to prohibit the illegal sale of any tissue from an unborn child. The governor also issued this statement:

“The footage released by The Center for Medical Progress regarding the alleged sale and trafficking of aborted fetal tissue and body parts by Planned Parenthood is horrifying and has no place in a civilized society.  I am calling on the Department of Health Services to conduct a thorough review of the law and immediately promulgate emergency rules designed to prohibit the illegal sale of any tissue from an unborn child.  This is consistent with federal law and will deter action that we all agree is abhorrent.  Further, I have instructed ADHS to provide any and all assistance required to Attorney General Brnovich in any efforts conducted by his office.”

###

Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod lauded the governor and attorney general for their swift responses:

“Today, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Attorney General Mark Brnovich both publicly responded to the shocking undercover video exposing the horrifying practices of the country’s largest abortion provider.

The video, released last week, captures Planned Parenthood’s senior medical director discussing how their doctors can manipulate an abortion in order to preserve vital organs of preborn children for medical experimentation and possibly sale. Troublingly, the state of Arizona is referenced multiple times in the unedited version of the video as a potential state in which to carry out these abhorrent transactions.

We appreciate and are thankful for Governor Ducey and Attorney General Brnovich taking steps to protect preborn children and ensure baby tissue is not a commodity for sale in our state.”

###

AG Mark Brnovich said:

“Like many others I was deeply disturbed by a recently released video that may show a Planned Parenthood executive discussing profiteering on the sale of tissue from aborted children.  As prosecutors, it is critical for this office not to rush to immediate judgment or determinations before facts can be established.  While we cannot comment on the status of any possible investigation, this type of allegation is something we take very seriously.”

Pro-Life Warriors: Call Your Lawmaker in Support of SB 1318

Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod reports …

A CAP-supported bill to keep taxpayer money from subsidizing abortion insurance coverage will be considered by the Arizona Senate in the next few days. Your senators need to hear from you on this issue!

Abortion should not be paid for with tax dollars, yet 41 out of 199 insurance plans available on Arizona’s federally-run healthcare exchange are doing exactly that. What’s more, last year, nearly 90% of those purchasing plans on the exchange got some sort of taxpayer-funded subsidy.

SB 1318 will ensure Arizonans are fully protected from having their tax dollars subsidize abortions by ensuring no plans offered on the exchange include elective abortion coverage.

As usual, Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union want to force Arizonans to pay for abortions. That’s why it’s critical that you contact your elected officials today and ask them to vote YES on SB 1318!

SB 1318 also ensures abortion clinics are complying with Arizona law by requiring them to provide verification that they have admitting privileges at a hospital as prescribed by law.

Use these talking points to craft your message to legislators. Don’t forget to add a custom Subject Line. It can be as simple as “Please Vote YES on SB 1318” or “Please Support SB 1318”.

  • SB 1318 will ensure that taxpayer dollars are not funding abortion in Arizona. This bill simply clarifies a law already in place to guarantee that no tax dollars will fund abortion.
  • Seventeen other states have the same law as SB 1318. And a total of 23 other states have restricted the circumstances under which plans on their exchanges may provide abortions.
  • SB 1318 also ensures that compliance with current clinic regulations is followed. Allowing DHS to verify that doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital as prescribed by law ensures the safety of the women walking into the clinic.
  • A woman’s legal right to choose an abortion does not demand that taxpayers subsidize or pay for an abortion. SB 1318 does not restrict women from having an abortion but simply does not allow taxpayers to have to pay for that abortion procedure.

California’s Embryonic Stem Cell Research a Complete Failure

Investors Business Daily reports what we all knew 10 years ago when Californians foolishly passed an amendment for unproven, unreliable destructive embryonic stem cell research, which treats human life like a mere commodity …

For Planned Parenthood, Abortion Really i$ About Choi$e

Abortion is the single largest cash-generating service Planned Parenthood provides. It accounts for around half of the roughly $300 million dollars generated in revenue from its patients, making Planned Parenthood the largest abortion provider in the nation.

The income generated from these abortions is critical for the growth and viability of the organization — a fact that was not lost on its leadership. Former Planned Parenthood facility directors have, in sworn legal documents, stated that they had mandated abortion quotas. 

One director said that a consistent theme from Planned Parenthood leadership “was how family planning services were a drain on the budget, but abortion services were keeping the center afloat.” In light of those financial realities, it’s understandable why Planned Parenthood would mention adoption and parenting options, but the profitability of abortion would ultimately trump them both.

A corporation that accepts government funding can be accused of financial fraud if it receives and spends money it is not entitled to, or uses taxpayer money for purposes outside the restrictions associated with the funding. Former Planned Parenthood employees and concerned U.S. taxpayers have come forward with allegations that Planned Parenthood routinely commits this kind of fraud.

Additionally, a 2011 exhaustive report was submitted to Congress alleging that waste, abuse, and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood may reach multiple millions of dollars.

Federal and state audits of family planning funding found a minimum of $95.7 million in waste, abuse, and potential fraud from 1995 to 2009.

Of this amount, at least $7.8 million was identified in separate state audits of Planned Parenthood affiliates in four states: New York, California, Washington, and Texas.

Federal audits of family planning programs from 1995 to 2009 identified a total of nearly $88 million in overbilling. And according to the Inspector General’s Office at the U.S. Department may actually be as high as $99 million.

All told, extensive waste, abuse, and potential fraud have been identified to date in more than 25 percent of Planned Parenthood’s U.S. affiliates that have been reviewed so far. Five others are the subjects of federal whistleblower lawsuits by former Planned Parenthood employees alleging fraud.
