"Extraordinary security" in place for Planned Parenthood event with Cecile Richards tonight

cecile richard planned parenthood iowa 3.pngI've reported a couple times about the pro-life presence planned for Planned Parenthood of East Central Iowa's 30th anniversary event tonight featuring CEO Cecile Richards at the Cedar Rapids Marriott (pictured below left).

Several pro-life groups are coming together to protest, organized by Pro-Life Action League. Operation Rescue has sent a Truth Truck from KS. Dubuque Co. Right to Life is bringing a busload of pro-life protesters, etc., etc., etc....

If you're in the 2-3h vicinity, please just get in your car and go! Events planned are:

  • 4p: Baby shower drop off begins in the parking lot at St. Pius X Church at 4949 Council Street NE (map)
  • 4:30p: Rally and press conference in the St. Pius X Church parking lot
  • 5p: Protest outside Cedar Rapids Marriott at 1200 Collins Road NE (map)
  • If you've ever wanted to be in the thick of pro-life activism, tonight's the night to smile for the camera (and FBI?) as you uphold the sanctity of preborn human life. KCRG reported yesterday that PP baby killers are freaking out:

    Extraordinary security measures will be in place Thursday evening to handle what is expected to be a large pro-life protest at the local PP's 30th anniversary event.

    The demonstrators will be on hand to protest the appearance of the evening's guest speaker - Cecile Richards, president of PP....

    "We want Cecile Richards and PP to know that abortion is nothing to celebrate," said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League.

    Joe Lock, president and CEO of PP of Eastern IA, said he has been working with the FBI, local police and businesses for weeks to ensure the safety of Richards and those attending the anniversary banquet....

    Police and FBI agents will be on site, he said, and snow fences will be in place to separate protesters from those attending the banquet.

    Lock said local PP board members were calling those signed up for the banquet on Wednesday night to reassure them "they are going to be safe."...

    dnc truth truck road 2.jpgSpeaking of safe, I really hope MSM films graphic photos of aborted babies on pro-life signs and the Truth Truck so Iowans can honestly evaluate who's really unsafe in this scenario.

    Interesting how PP attempts to portray pro-lifers as violent so as to deflect attention from its violent financial mainstay of killing of thousands of babies daily.

    And I hope MSM films the parking lot baby shower. Perhaps PP's increased security will ensure that the thousands of dollars of baby goods pro-lifers collect for local pregnancy care centers won't be stolen.

    I'm also wondering how many PP supporters will be no shows thanks to all the media attention and fear mongering.


    PP's website states " A Tradition of Trust"...


    ...I think that should be replaced with "LIES"

    I agree. PP are liars and they're good at lying. They've done it so well for so many years. It's sad.

    RSD, if you are ever in need of an abortion, you can trust that Planned Parenthood has the knowledge, tools, and skills to kill that little baby... for a price...

    Who knows maybe the next scott roeder will be there. You can be part of reving up the next religous zealot with half truths and hyperbole.
    You too can be part of cold blooded murder followed by hot denials.

    prolife what a lie, Why is the prolife movement always there in the back ground when Doctors (receptionists, security officers)die?

    Awesome! Wish I could be there with them tonight!! Hopefully you will get some footage, Jill? :)

    Also hope they get tons of donations to offer REAL help to pregnant mothers.

    All Planned Parenthood has to offer is the cold blooded murder of children and hot denials that they murder children.

    Bonnie, it's abundantly clear that you have never actually gotten to know a pro-lifer. Go meet one, then get back to me. We're roughly half the American population, so it shouldn't be too hard to find one.

    Is this trademarked or could Cecile borrow this phrase from you for fundraising?

    Posted by: klynn73 at May 20, 2010 4:03 PM

    Bonnie, you can repeat convient rhetoric all you want but law enforcement investigation found that Scott Roeder acted alone. No one here doubts that Roeder's actions were wrong. However, you conviently forget that there are fringe extremist in any political movement, which don't represent the majority, and that your movement has them too, such as the guy who killed the peaceful pro-life activist holding a sign at a street corner (can't think of his name). If you don't want us characterizing and stereotyping your movement based on that incident and various other incidents of acts of violence and vandalism against female clinic patients and pro-life individuals and places of business, then I suggest you don't do it to us!

    After there through guarding Cecile maybe they can send some to planned parenthood centers to protect the babies.

    Posted by: myrtle miller at May 20, 2010 4:27 PM

    If only they knew that no man can protect them from Him!

    He sees the condition of their heart!

    None will have excuse!

    At the judgment seat of Christ, all will give an account!

    Then reward or eternal damnation!

    Choose this night, Cecile, life or death!

    Just some thoughts.........

    Peace to the Saints who are giving the truth tonight.......

    I'm receivin' your Peace tonight and your bold, clear articulation of the Truth.

    I love to be reminded of His coming Judgment.

    We need to stay ready and make the most of every minute.

    His Peace, Love & Joy back at ya'

    And may God be with the protesters tonight; may they be encompassed about by protecting angels; may their bold proclamatiion of the Truth pierce hearts; may their witness of Love and Compassion win hearts; may their faithfulness be rewarded with babies' lives being saved. Help young mothers to choose LIFE!

    Amen Ed. How are you? I have been praying for the protest today, all of the prolifers and for the Prolife Action League. I understand tomorrow they are to receive a judgement in court regarding PP in Aurora, whether the zoning case will be dismissed against PP. Prolifers please pray for them. May God protect and guard them from the pro-death agenda of PP and their corrupt schemes and lies.

    Oh Please...

    The melodrama is rich. Maybe while she's at it she could prevail upon the abortionist-in-chief at Pennsylvania Ave. to dispatch a Navy SEAL Team to guard her too.

    Let Cecile get all glammed up and toast the deaths of 52 million here since 1973!! I hope there's some video of the macabre celebration of babies dying by the thousands daily. Better for us to show all the world exactly who these people are.

    Ultimately we had all better be praying for their conversion, not for the sake of the babies, but for their own before they meet God not as loving Father, but as Righteous Judge.

    Long life Cecile!! It's more than the babies get from you.

    Did anyone from here go to the protest and baby shower? How did things go?

    Re: Bonnie

    What would this blog be without a daily Two Minute Hate from a pro-abort?

    Posted by: phillymiss at May 21, 2010 10:28 AM

    Cecile, like any other mass murderer, is merely paranoid about receiving a taste of her own "medicine." That's just another demonstration proving why she and her gang are so much like Hitler and the Nazis, Stalin and the Communists, Saddam Hussein and the Ba'athists, etc. etc. The guilty tend to fear corresponding retribution about 100% of the time, and her paranoia is merely more evidence of her extreme guilt complex. Plus, it generates the kind of publicity she desires from the kinds of suckers she cultivates.

    Here are a few pictures taken from the event: http://www.flickr.com/photos/plal/sets/72157623982897263/

    You can see all the baby stuff collected in one of them.

    It was hard to get a shot of everyone out there because we were at the front and the back of the hotel. But there were over 200 people protesting--Iowans are so great!

    Why can't the abortion supporters stand it when we call abortion "murder? Those have met who do abortions have all admitted that they are murders. Dr. McArthur Hill said, "'I want you all to know that I am a murderer." Tony Levatino described himself as a 'hit man,' taking money to kill someone. Even Warren Hern, still doing abortions in Colorado, said that in this operation there is no way to deny that something alive is being destroyed: "You can feel it at the end of your forceps." So if the people who do the abortions aren't afraid to call a spade a spade, why are abortion supporters so squeamish? Let's get honest.

    Thank you Joe Scheidler for your words of truth spoken from the mouths of abortionists. Would love to see your post as a "Quote of the Day" or better yet post this on the blog for discussion. God bless you and Pro-Life Action League.
