Personhood Amendment on the Ballot in Colorado

An amendment will be on the ballot in 2014 seeking to add language to the Colorado constitution that gives personhood rights to unborn children. The amendment came after a 38 week old unborn boy was killed by a drunk driver and the driver was never charged because under Colorado law unborn persons are not recognized. A recent article explains:

“This amendment puts a new question before Colorado voters. In Heather’s experience with the tragic loss of her son, she was told that she had merely lost a ‘pregnancy’, not a baby, and therefore there were no charges filed against the criminal responsible for his death. This is one of many problems that stem from specifically denying the personhood rights of babies. Amendment 67 will acknowledge that Brady was a person and protect pregnant women and their children in Colorado.”

What is the law in West Virginia? Are unborn persons protected under West Virginia law in cases of criminal conduct? If we have no restrictions on our abortion industry can we possibly have any personhood laws to protect the unborn? Shouldn’t we? Click here for original article.

Have You Seen This Website: “It’s Pretty Ugly”

The Alliance Defending Freedom has started a new campaign to spread the word about Planned Parenthood. If you’ve read this blog for any length of time you know that I regularly expose this corrupt, criminal organization for what it is: an industry for killing and money. The ADF has been involved in this fight for many years and is now exposing the secrets of Planned Parenthood so people will no longer be deceived. A recent article shares the reason for the campaign:

“The secret to Planned Parenthood’s success is just that: a secret. And for good reason. If people knew that this billion-dollar international corporation profited from promoting risky sexual behavior to young people, enforcing abortion quotas to increase profits, putting women’s health at risk, and wasting and abusing taxpayer dollars, Planned Parenthood would be bankrupt. Sadly, it is anything but.” You can visit the website here. But be warned there is very graphic images and videos on the site. Click here for original article.

Why Don’t Young People Know Planned Parenthood Does Abortions?

I’ve had people tell me I spend too much time talking about Planned Parenthood. Thanks for the feedback, but as long as I read articles like this one that say young people, college students don’t know that Planned Parenthood does abortions, I will continue talk about them. Planned Parenthood is the most corrupt, criminal abortion merchant in the U.S They regularly skirt the law, defraud, steal, lie, and cover up their illegal acts in order to sell abortions. The fact that anyone doesn’t know they are such an awful abortion merchant is all the motivation I need to keep speaking. Here’s what the article said:

“According to research Students for Life of America published last June, a majority of young people do not even know Planned Parenthood does abortions, and often have a ‘favorable’ view of the abortion Goliath. This generation is opposed to abortion. Every poll confirms this fact.But when Planned Parenthood presents itself in the media and on campus, they never mention the dirty word ‘abortion’ or their corrupt business model. That’s how they get their positive ratings from young people and lure them in.” Click here for original article.

In Their Own Words: Abortion Clinic Workers and Post-Abortion Women

Pregnant womenAs more women come forward to share their abortion stories and give details of the horrific experiences they had, more people emerge resolute about ending abortion. Though Planned Parenthood continues to receive more money than ever from the Obama administration, they continue to close the doors of abortion mills nation-wide. Americans are becoming more pro-life every day as they learn just how torturous and cruel abortion really is.

One recent article from LifeNews.com shares a number of statements from former abortion clinic workers, women who’ve had abortions, and others. Each of the statements sheds greater light on the horrors of legalized murder. One fact highlighted is that many current abortion clinic workers have also had abortions themselves. A particularly honest statement was made:

“When a later abortion was performed, workers had to piece the baby back together, and every major part–head, torso, two legs, and two arms –had to be accounted for. One of our little jokes at the clinic was, ‘If you ever want to humble a doctor, hide a leg so he thinks he has to go back in.’ Please understand, these were not abnormal, uncaring women working with me at the clinic. We were just involved in a bloody, dehumanizing business, all of us for our own reasons. Whether we were justifying our past advocacy (as I was), justifying a previous abortion (as many were) or whatever, we were just trying to cope–and if we couldn’t laugh at what was going on, I think our minds would have snapped. It’s not an easy thing trying to confuse a conscience that will not stay dead.”

Planned Parenthood Sets New Record – for Abortions!

Ugh…I just don’t have any positive thoughts toward the nations largest, most corrupt, criminal abortion business. And once again they have proven what they are really all about: abortions. They have really “outdone themselves” this time by performing more abortions in 2012 than any year previously. So while they talk about “women’s health,” and use other deceptive phrases to deflect the public focus, they are first and foremost an abortion business. They are in it for the money and don’t have much interest in anything else. Take a look at what a recent article said:

The new report released by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) shows the abortion giant did a record 333,964 abortions on unborn children during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Those abortions were estimated to have generated $150 million dollars for the ‘nonprofit’ organization…While the number of abortions reached a record high, only 2,300 Planned Parenthood customers were referred to adoption agencies during the 2011-2012 fiscal year…Meanwhile, the annual report reveals PPFA generated nearly $1.2 billion in total income — just short of the $1.22 billion mark that was its record for income that it posted in 2010-2011.” There should be no doubt that Planned Parenthood is nothing more than an abortion business bent on making money by killing innocent children.

Texas Cuts Off Planned Parenthood

This is a great way to start the new year; Planned Parenthood being cut off from the public funding well that has fueled their death machine for far too long. Considering that Planned Parenthood is a “non-profit” organization, I can’t figure out why they feel entitled to tax-payer funds on a state and federal level at all. Thankfully, Texas has decided that it’s time to say goodbye to the abortion giant and refer women to doctors that do not support abortion. A recent article says:

“A court ruling has cleared the way for Texas to end public funding for Planned Parenthood and other groups that support abortion. Republican lawmakers passed the ‘Affiliate Ban Rule’ in 2012, but Planned Parenthood sought a temporary injunction to keep it from going into effect on Jan. 1. On Monday, a Texas District Judge denied that bid. The abortion provider says the rule prevents poor women from getting the health care they need. Texas officials note, however, that women can still get help through a state program that refers them to doctors and clinics that don’t support abortion.” Hopefully others will follow the example of Texas and refuse to fund a corrupt, criminal organization like Planned Parenthood any longer.

Planned Parenthood Reps Lie to Students About Science of Life (Video)

in utero baby

Does this look like a non-living “blob”?

Planned Parenthood has a message for you. They want you to know that “science is not absolute” and that it’s acceptable to ignore science when it comes to the abortion issue. So militant is Planned Parenthood and many abortion advocates that they would ignore their own dogma of following science when it contradicts their rhetoric.

In the video below you will hear Planned Parenthood reps actually tell students to ignore the science being championed by the pro-life movement. They also tell students to ignore the scientific images given to them. Presumably these are images which show the humanity of unborn children at very early stages of development. Planned Parenthood wants everyone thinking of unborn kids as blobs, inhuman, non-loving beings; because if they are anything but blobs, their entire foundation crumbles.

But then Planned Parenthood goes so far as to blatantly lie and state that an unborn child’s heart does not begin to beat until 24 weeks! I doubt you can find one ultrasound technician or reputable pediatrician that will agree with such a scientific impossibility. But that doesn’t stop Planned Parenthood from seeking to indoctrinate based on rhetoric while ignoring clear scientific evidence to the contrary.

Planned Parenthood Opposes Sex-Selection Abortion Bans

The head of Planned Parenthood in Utah doesn’t think sex-selective abortion is a problem in her state, so she is opposing a bill to make sure it doesn’t become a problem. That makes sense…right? It’s no secret that Planned Parenthood was founded on the premise of eugenics and doesn’t, to this day, mind race based, or even sex selective abortions. The nation’s largest criminal abortion merchant loves to stand in the way of common sense efforts to protect life with nonsensical arguments that further prove just how out of touch they are. A recent article reports:

“Utah State Sen. Margaret Dayton is proposing legislation prohibiting abortions in the western state if sought because the baby is a girl. The measure may also prevent abortions if sought because the baby is black or another undesired race. Planned Parenthood of Utah opposes the proposed ‘Gender Selection Abortion Prohibition’ bill. Karrie Galloway, the head of the abortion business in the state, told media that her group is opposed to the common sense bill because it is a ‘solution looking for a problem’ simply because she is unaware of any cases of sex-selection abortions or race-based abortions in Utah…’I personally am not aware of any suspected abuse in that arena,’ she said. ‘Therefore, I see it as a solution looking for a problem.’ Click here for original article.

Planned Parenthood Closing Clinics Left and Right

Planned Parenthood is a disgusting criminal organization that needs to be shut down. That’s about the nicest thing I can say for the nation’s largest abortion merchant. Thankfully, due to the efforts of pro-life organizations, citizens of all persuasions, and fiscal conservatives, Planned Parenthood is closing doors faster than they can open them. According to a recent article: “By the end of 2011, it had been forced to close another 126 clinics. Every clinic closing means there is a community that no longer has Planned Parenthood in its midst—a community that is free of the influence of this destructive organization. A community, like Amarillo, Texas, that has seen a dramatic drop in teenage pregnancies since Planned Parenthood closed its doors.” Anyone that believes PP is a good organization doing good work needs to spend time researching this criminally corrupt merchant of death. Planned Parenthood is nothing more than a killing machine bent on doing as many abortions as possible using tax-payer money. Click here for original article.

Planned Parenthood Ignored 911 Operator

by Nathan A. Cherry, 08/08/2012

By now the intelligent, observant person knows just how horrible of an organization Planned Parenthood really is. From covering up sex-trafficking, to doing sex-selective abortions, skirting parental notification laws, Planned Parenthood has proven to be a crime syndicate worthy of Al Capone’s praise. But now they find themselves under greater scrutiny for possibly causing the death of a young woman after performing an abortion and refusing to seek medical help when complications arose from the procedure. LifeNews.com reports: “This information shows gross negligence in the way Planned Parenthood managed Reaves medical emergency. Delays in getting her the care she needed were intentional. It crosses the line into what is likely criminal conduct. We renew our call for a criminal investigation into Reaves death. If those responsible are not brought to justice, it is only a matter of time before another woman suffers Tonya’s tragic fate.” There is no doubt that Planned Parenthood needs to be investigated and charged with any number of criminal offences. But as long as they have President Obama protecting them I am almost certain it will not happen. Click here for original article.
