Planned Parenthood unaccountable to Government Accountability Office

gao-seal.jpgFrom a July 30 Washington Times piece by Rita Diller of American Life League:

Where's the money? That's the question on everyone's mind after reading the recently released Government Accountability Office report. The GAO numbers on money paid out to Planned Parenthood between 2002 and 2008 reveal an unaccounted-for $1.3B.

No answers have been forthcoming. In typical Planned Parenthood style, the abortion giant has done nothing to shed light on the question. In fact, it has done just the opposite....

Most misguided people on the planet: Pro-abort youth

max 2.jpg16-yr-old Max Kamin-Cross appears to have a lot on the ball.

The Rochester, NY, teen writes about himself, "I am an avid rock climber and race for my school's alpine ski team. I also shoot on a Junior Olympic Archery competition team and participate in Model United Nations, while taking several AP classes."

But for such a smart kid, Kamin-Cross is sure headed in a foolish direction, because Kamin-Cross is a budding pro-abort....

New video: Planned Parenthood lies about fetal development, abortion risks

Interesting that the other side persistently fights state laws forcing them to give correct information about fetal development and the risks of abortion.

It's no wonder.

Today LiveAction.org released the 3rd video in its Rosa Acuna Project series, which "document[s] Planned Parenthood's use of unscientific and fabricated medical information to convince women to have abortions."

rosa acuna project logo.jpg

In this video, taped September 11, 2009, at the now-closed Indianapolis Planned Parenthood located at 8847 Commerce Park Place, the "counselor" farcically states a baby's heart doesn't begin beating until "the 8th or 9th week," when it actually does on Day 22 or 23 - i.e., at 3 weeks for all those PP counselors who can't count....

Pro-abort bakes bloody fetus cookies

Imagine had Michael Vick been discovered not only to be into dog torture but braggadociously into baking cookies of mutilated dogs. We'd say he had an extra dose of sick in him.

No doubt pro-abort Rachel Joy Larris will clap her hands in glee by the attention I'm giving the bloody fetus cookies she cleverly baked and decorated. Rachel won't get it because she has an extra dose of sick in her.

Rachel posted these photos and captions on twitpic yesterday (click to enlarge):

New York pro-aborts bicker over bill authorizing late-term abortions

10% of all U.S. abortions are committed in the State of New York. (Guttmacher's latest figures have the US at 1.21 million abortions annually, and the NY Dept. of Health's latest figures have it at 118.381 abortions annually.)

ny reproductive health act.jpgBut that's not enough. Even though pro-aborts consistently downplay the number of late-term abortions, NY pro-aborts want the gateway opened for more.

Although the US Supreme Court in 1973 basically ordained abortion on demand throughout all 9 months of pregnancy by writing a health exception through which a Mack truck could drive, preexisting NY State law only allows abortion after 24 weeks to save a pregnant mother's life. Plus, abortions after 24 weeks must be attended by a 2nd physician to care for the potentially viable child.

The Reproductive Health Act take NY law even beyond the loose confines of Roe v. Wade by making it a "fundamental right, and therefore completely unregulatable....

Physicians for Reproductive Choice: 2010 Abortion Provider Awards

Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health held its 2010 Abortion Provider awards ceremony on May 24. I always find pro-abort events creepily intriguing.

Winner of this year's William K. Rashbaum, MD, Abortion Provider Award (which "honors a physician who provides outstanding abortion services and serves as an inspirational leader for colleagues, residents, and medical students") was abortionist Carolyn Westhoff, presented by late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart...

PRCH westhoff carhart.jpg

I concur Westhoff was well-deserving of this award, and partial birth abortion bud Carhart was just the guy to give it to her. Both were plaintiffs against the ban. Westhoff testified there was "usually a heartbeat" when she started suctioning a baby's brain out and on the topic of fetal pain acknowledged, "I certainly know based on my experience that the fetus will withdraw in response to a painful stimulus."...

Planned Parenthood to offer "insemination services," marketing lesbians

Just spotted this announcement on Twitter by Planned Parenthood St. Louis Region:

ppslr insemination services.png

The link takes you to PPSLR's Facebook page, and the announcement is this...

ppslr insemination logo.jpg

As far as I can tell - after checking PP Federation's site and then PP Golden Gate, which would seem the 1st logical PP to offer stud services - this is the only PP nationwide offering this service so far.

Lovely. PP now specializes in aborting natural pregnancies and inseminating unnatural pregnancies - breaking up natural families and bonding unnatural families.

Third "urgent" appeal issued to save Mississippi abortion clinic

UPDATE, 6/19, 6:51a: 2 blog commenters made points worth posting about the tidbit in FMF's alert, "Our legal team is now working to retain legal council."

Praxedes wrote, "So they need more money to pay lawyers to advise the lawyers they already have?" And Mary added, "Shouldn't that be counsel?"

Both excellent.

6/18, 7:44a: I don't know if Mississippi's last standing abortion mill really is in financial trouble of if the Feminist Majority Foundation has simply stumbled on a good fundraising tactic.

Thumbnail image for jackson women's health organization.jpgWhatever, yesterday came FMF's 3rd "urgent" and "emergency" appeal in 3-1/2 weeks to save the Jackson Women's Health Organization (pictured right). See previous 2 here and here. This alert included a new tidbit, "Our legal team is now working to retain legal council."

As I reported last week, there has been no mention of an "anti-abortion extremist" intruder in the press, but had such an "invas[ion]" actually taken place we can rest assured MSM would have been all over it. Click to enlarge...

Planned Parenthood's CEO Cecile Richards: Military abortion clinics "a sign of the times"?

burris gotcha.jpgI wrote a couple weeks ago that pro-abort Democrat US Sen. Roland Burris had introduced an amendment to the defense authorization bill that would force all military medical facilities to make privately financed abortions available.

The amendment passed in the Senate Armed Services Committee along party lines (except Ben Nelson) and is now headed toward a showdown on the Senate floor.

The defense authorization bill passed without any such amendment in the House, meaning if the abortion amendment remains intact, a House/Senate conference committee will decide its fate....

Planned Parenthood abortionist central to UW late-term abortion scandal to teach at Harvard

The University of WI Madison has been embroiled in controversy for over a year, since pro-lifers learned of its plans to begin committing late-term abortions.

caryn dutton pp.pngPlanned Parenthood of Wisconsin's Associate Medical Director, abortionist Caryn Dutton, was central in attempting to bring abortion to UWM in her simultaneous capacity as doctor and assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at UWM.

Ironically, it was only because PP Federation of America's "confidence in our ab service provision was very LOW," according to an email from Dutton (retrieved via the Freedom of Information Act from the Alliance Defense Fund), that the idea to commit abortions past 18 weeks at UWM rather than PP was even conceived....

Alabama abortion mill closes; 2nd "emergency" appeal issued to keep last standing Mississippi mill open

summit locations abortion.pngOperation Rescue is reporting this afternoon that Beacon's Women Center in Montgomery, AL, has closed.

An AL Dept. of Public Health source informed OR that Beacon, one of Summit Medical Center's chain of 7 mills, decided to shutter its doors rather than face a revocation hearing after being placed on probation in 2007 for numerous violations.

OR reports this leaves only 6 abortion mills in AL, which is great news.

Meanwhile, recall I reported May 30 that the Feminist Majority Foundation had issued a strange email requesting donations for the last standing abortion mill in MS, Jackson Women's Health Organization, claiming "Extremists are trying to shut down this vital women's clinic," and that half of any donations received would "go directly to the clinic to help pay for enhanced security measures."...

Abortion activist complains, "There aren't enough of us"

serena freewomyn 2.jpgOn the Abortion Gang blog today activist Serena Freewomyn (pictured right) wrote a post entitled, "An appeal to the silent majority."

At 1st I was confused. We're not so silent. And what in the world could Serena want from us?

Oh, wait, Serena was speaking to her own peeps? She must not have gotten 2 years worth of memos showing more Americans are pro-life than pro-abortion. Actually, Serena got it half right. Abortion advocates may not comprise the majority, but since 1973 at least 1/3 have indeed been silenced.

But I'll let that slide since Serena's post was otherwise insightful...

Pastor arrested in public property dispute at Planned Parenthood

I wrote last week that Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition was planning to challenge the constitutionality of a fence Planned Parenthood located 4 blocks from the White House in Washington, DC, had erected around what is thought to be public property.

The City denied Mahoney a permit to protest and pray in front of the mill today, but he went anyway...

Planned Parenthood does two-step on telemed abortions

Read the backstory here.

On May 21 IA Public Radio reported:

telemed abortions ifrl.jpg

... Clinics around the country have been inquiring about the [abortion telemed] system, and already Planned Parenthood of East Central IA will also be signing on, making abortion available for the first time at their clinics in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque, which lack full-time physicians on staff.

Pro-aborts stumble into sinking sand while seeking "common ground"

In June 2009 the Ted Turner funded pro-abortion website RH Reality Check launched "On Common Ground," an attempt to bridge the abortion divide.

Its impetus, penned by then editor Scott Swenson, speaks of a naive time that seems so long ago and far away, although it was only last year:

obama hope and change logo.jpg

In so many ways, the election of President Obama is viewed through a lens of its healing potential....

President Obama is asking Americans to seek common ground on one of the most controversial issues of our time, abortion....

Is it possible that in President Obama's election, Americans have a chance to heal the body politic from the divisiveness the abortion issue has caused for a generation or more?...

Update on Cedar Rapids Planned Parenthood's worse than thought dismally attended event featuring pro-abort rock star Cecile Richards

planned parenthood cedar rapids 1.jpg

Read backstory here. Also read Eric Scheidler's detailed May 27 report at the Pro-Life Action League blog.

30th anniversary logo cedar rapids planned parenthood.pngI wrote on May 21 it was pretty pathetic that Planned Parenthood of East Central Iowa told the press it only expected "about 200 people" at a 30th anniversary celebration of its Cedar Rapids affiliate, featuring PP CEO and pro-abort rock star Cecile Richards, no less.

Seriously? Worse, I said that likely translated to a reality of 150-175 attendees, although a pro-abort spy reported after viewing the name tags the number looked fewer than 100.

She was only able to get a blurry picture, but it turns out she was spot on. Pro-lifer Allen T at the Is Anybody There? blog. found photos of the event at PP of E Central IA's Facebook page and here's a clear shot of the sign-in table...

Controversial abortion ad airs on UK television

On May 24 British television began airing its first abortion ad, sponsored by international abortion organization Marie Stopes International:

The ad never mentions abortion, but the message is clear: If you find you're pregnant but are just launching a career, or already a harried mother, or still in school, call us to get rid of the problem. If you're late! you're late! for a very important date - abort!...

The baby shower was very successful. The complete back end of my Ford Ranger was full. I had to ask a friend to help; we filled the back of her van. I dropped off at the local crisis pregnancy centers today. They were very appreciative.

5/21, 4p: They say all publicity is good publicity, but I'm sure that was small consolation yesterday to both Planned Parenthood of East Central Iowa and the Cedar Rapids Marriott when all the news crews pulled up to cover the Cedar Rapid PP's little 30th anniversary celebration, featuring CEO Cecile Richards....

NYC premiere of movie exposing abortion industry canceled allegedly due to threats

blood money abortion.jpgHere we have another example demonstrating that "choice" and free speech only go one direction in the minds of pro-aborts. What are they so afraid of?

The film BloodMoney, an exposé exposing the underbelly of the abortion industry (which I've previously discussed), was scheduled to premiere in New York City at Spectrum Theatres May 5.

But Spectrum management abruptly canceled the screening last week, apparently due to pro-abort threats, according to TimesUnion.com:

Roman Jaquez, a Troy filmmaker and producer of BloodMoney, said that Keith Pickard, an owner of the Spectrum, called him last week to say that he had canceled the screening after receiving phone calls from people threatening to picket outside the theater if the film was shown. Jaquez had rented the theater for 4 screenings Wednesday and Thursday and sold tickets himself....

O'Reilly spotlights pro-life undercover video of Milwaukee Planned Parenthood

Read backstory here.

2 nights ago Bill O'Reilly spotlighted LiveAction.org's latest undercover video, this one showing a Milwaukee Planned Parenthood "counselor" not only dispensing false information about a 6-8 week old developing baby but also attempting to push the pregnant mother to abort.

I'm glad O'Reilly agreed with the obvious.

Planned Parenthood caught on tape misinforming, pushing abortion

Pro-aborts attack pregnancy care center counselors for trying to dissuade mothers in crisis pregnancies from aborting, as if that's so bad, and for supposedly dispensing misinformation. Yet, over and over they demonstrate they're the ones giving out the bad info.

Planned Parenthood Milwaukee.jpgLiveAction.org today released the 3rd in its Rosa Acuna series of videos, a "multi-state undercover audit documenting Planned Parenthood's abortion counseling," according to its site.

All 3 released videos are of PPs located in WI, this 1 at 5380 Fon du Lac Ave., Milwaukee, pictured above right.

In this video the PP counselor states a preborn baby at 6-8 weeks of age has "no legs, no arms, no head, no brain, no heart," which is false, false, false, false and false. She makes the nonsensical statement, "The fetus is the developing embryo inside you," which would normally make me laugh if we weren't talking life or death here....

Steve Brody, Exec. Dir. of Dubuque Co. Right to Life (where I'll be speaking April 16) forwarded me a newspaper clipping from the teeny tiny Monticello Express.

Breaking: Kelly and O'Reilly to both cover AL Planned Parenthood probation story today

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgYesterday I reported that the AL Dept. of Public Health had placed Planned Parenthood of Birmingham on probation as a result of an undercover video shot by Lila Rose and LiveAction.org.

The video showed this PP was willing to help a 14-year-old girl cover up her rape by her 31-year-old boyfriend.

This is a developing story. The ADPH report, garnered by the Live Action team yesterday afternoon, shows other gross violations found at the Birmingham PP.

This is all tentative but as it stands Fox's Megyn Kelly, who now has her own 2-hr show beginning at 1p EST, is going to run Lila's original video and cover the story. Lila may or may not appear. Likely not since time is too short.

Then, Bill O'Reilly also plans to cover this story tonight. Again, not sure whether Lila will appear. Details are being worked out now.

This could all change, of course. I'll keep you posted.

MA abortion mill neighbors: How's that buffer zone working out for you?

Brookline abortion mill, massachusetts.jpg

Last April abortionist Laurent Delli-Bovi attempted to quell concerns of prospective new neighbors on Harvard St. in Brookline Village, MA.

Brookline, Lolly, 2009, abortion.jpgDelli-Bovi (pictured left at a 2009 "Champions for Choice" MA NARAL event) owns the last of 3 abortion mills in town since their heyday in the '90s.

"Lolly," as Delli-Bovi is known to friends, said she had to move from a more isolated location to the Harvard St. spot - which is next door to a day care center, and near an elementary school, other day care centers, grocery store, dry cleaner, other small businesses, and homes - or close.

"If it doesn't work out, we won't exist," said Delli-Bovi according to WickedLocal.com, to which neighbors said fine but town officials didn't....

Planned Parenthood uses black athletes as pawns in vapid Tebow response video

2/6, 9:35a: Les for Life at the Passionate Pro-lifer thinks the black athlete ad is going to boomerang. I agree that at some level great or small the Planned Parenthoodsponsored video rebuttal to the Tebow ad has afforded us the opportunity to point out how abortion is decimating the black race in America.

2/4, 11:13a: Ack. I've decided there is nothing Planned Parenthood does that doesn't make me sick. How's that for a double negative?

PP has produced a 1:07 video in response to Tim and Pam Tebow's upcoming Super Bowl ad, which I've reported on extensively.

CBS, abortion, Tebow, Planned Parenthood, RH Reality Check, pro-life, Focus on the Family, National ORganization for Women.jpgLet me 1st acknowledge PP is attempting the right PR tack, unlike other pro-abort groups such as Ms., NOW, and RH Reality Check, which combined forces to wage a counter-productive public war against CBS to try to stifle pro-life free speech.

I note neither PP nor its CEO, Cecile Richards, were part of that mob. Smart.

Now PP is jumping in, 1st with a well-written introductory video by Richards. Note she respects and lauds Pam Tebow, then seamlessly segues to promote abortion, of course without ever saying the word...

The Battle of Fitchburg begins: Planned Parenthood getting federal stimulus money to open new shop

UDPATE, 1/30, 7:02a: Hot Air has a good post on this growing controversy.

1/29, 11:44a: Of course. Why am I not surprised?

On January 23 and 25 I posted the following as our Quote of the Day:

Dianne Luby, Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, abortion.jpg

Once we have a chance to meet with people and discuss how we are part of a solution, we win friends and supporters. I think it is common that people don't want protesters and those types of things that sometimes occur when we go into a community, but as soon as anti-choice folks realize we don't provide abortion services there, they don't protest.

~ Oh? Planned Parenthood League of MA CEO Dianne Luby (pictured right), commenting on the controversy surrounding the move of a Fitchburg PP to a "highly visible location at 391 Main Street," according to NewsTelegram.com, January 23

I had no direct knowledge that pro-lifers would pitch a fit, I just knew no pro-life group anywhere would ever let an aborting or feeder PP into their community without raising the roof.

But I had no idea of the backstory. Kudos to bloggers The Other McCain and Da Tech Guy for staying on top of it....

National abortion funding group out of money

... my ears perked up. Sure enough (click to enlarge)...

Hersey, abortion.png

So due to a shortage of donations, Hersey is confining itself to helping cover up underage rape and incest via minor abortions and eugenic abortions of handicapped or ill babies, which make up the bulk of late-term abortions. According to Hersey's hierarchy of needs, these are the most critical kills to fund.

Buy a "gorgeous" coat hanger pendant

Yesterday ClinicEscort bragged on Twitter about her fashionable, new coat hanger pendant...

coat hanger necklace clinic escort.png

The link describes the coat hanger pendant as "gorgeous and touching"...

coat hanger necklace model.jpg

I thought the coat hanger was supposed to symbolize death, so I'm not getting how coat hanger jewelry is "gorgeous and touching." I guess the pro-life equivalent would be aborted baby photos, but I've never heard them described as "gorgeous and touching."

I guess that's just the pro-abort, pro-death mentality.

BTW, it appears the DC Abortion Fund is no longer hawking the gorgeous and touching coat hanger pendant as a fundraising gimmick. This was just apparently a special holiday offer.

So interested parties will have to find another source, sorry.

Video: Mom brings "kid" along for abortion

Last week I posted on a new pro-life tactic at the EMW Women's Surgical Center abortion mill in St. Louis of wearing vests similar to those of deathscorts when trying to reach mothers going into clinics to abort.

The same pro-abort who documented that with photos and video shot new video January 9 that I found both fascinating and disturbing.

It is disturbing 1st because obviously we're witnessing a mom on her way to kill her baby. 2nd, this particular mom, along with a significant other, brought a (born) child along, which should be considered child abuse or something. The deathscort 1st slips and rudely calls the little girl "kid" before recovering to the more courteous "child." She suggests the abortion mill might not be a good place for the little girl. She should know. But then she offers for one of the deathscorts to watch her? Puke.

Oh, well, I know the deathscort didn't shoot the video for me to scrutinize her. She shot it for us to scrutinize the pro-lifers. But I found them respectful, caring, and even angelic... a chorus of soft voices calling on the mom not to do it. We don't know if she did, but either way I doubt she'll ever be able to get those voices out of her head.


Strike 3 for TN Planned Parenthood affiliates

2009 was not a good year for Planned Parenthood affiliates in TN, and 2010 isn't starting out well either.

three lightning strikes.jpgRecall that late last spring the TN legislature basically defunded PP, giving 1st priority to $1.1 million previously earmarked to PP for family planning to all other public health agencies 1st.

Credit LiveAction.org for instigating the financial freeze by shooting undercover video at a Memphis PP, wherein a counselor instructed Lila Rose, posing as a 13-yr-old, to lie to a judge about her adult "boy"friend impregnator....

NARAL's Hall of Fame and Shame winners and losers

thumbs up and thumbs down.jpgRH Reality Check blogger Robin Marty couldn't decide whether she was amused or aggravated by pro-life interest in NARAL's Hall of Fame and Shame nominees.

In particular, Personhood USA really wanted to win NARAL's Hall of Shame award, considering such a distinction a badge of honor.

I wondered if NARAL, obviously bereft of scruples, would deny Personhood USA the plum prize out of spite, even if it polled the winner. I suspect it did.

At any rate, here are NARAL's winners. Congrats to late-term abortionist Carhart! Perfect choice for NARAL's Hall of Fame. And - shock! - pro-lifers agree with NARAL that Ben Nelson is a good Hall of Shame choice. Click to enlarge...

Abortion mill deathscorts fume when "Life Escorts" don identical orange vests

Well, this is good. Pro-life activists are an imaginative bunch.

At the EMW Women's Surgical Center abortion mill in St. Louis Louisville, those who pro-lifers call "deathscorts" - volunteers or staff paid to navigate abortion-minded mothers past pro-lifers - are angry because pro-lifers have started wearing the same orange vests they do.

Vote! Personhood USA vies to win NARAL's Hall of Shame Award

personhood usa.png

I know the feeling. Winning Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World" award earlier this year was one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me in my capacity as pro-life activist.

naral logo 2.gifSo when earlier this week NARAL announced nominees for its "Hall of Fame and Shame," Personhood USA was proud to make NARAL's "Shame" short list.

Now the group is vying to win! So hold your virtual nose and go vote at NARAL and then spread the word. Help Personhood USA achieve this badge of honor....

... although NARAL, not known for scrupulousness given it promotes baby killing after all, will likely spite Personhood USA and give the award to someone else, even if Personhood gets the most votes.

Oh, whatever, this is fun.

Planned Parenthood's "Choice on Earth" holiday fundraising drive

I think Cecile Richards did this just to make me happy. It was only a week ago I noted with disappointment that Planned Parenthood wasn't peddling its "Choice on Earth" Christmas cards this year.

Then, voilà, today I get a fundraising email from Cecile with a "Choice on Earth" logo. How sweet! I also loved the email subject heading, "Hope is not enough." Cecile's right, if she's places her hopes in a person, such as Barack Obama. But hope is indeed enough if placed in Jesus Christ, whose birthday we will celebrate next week. Click to enlarge...

This is all the information I can find, posted today...

and the linked photo's obviously no close-up...

chelsea clinton, EMILY's list luncheon.jpg

... but if it's true Chelsea Clinton has become an abortion advocate like her parents, it's really so sad. What a legacy.

What, no Planned Parenthood "Choice on Earth" cards this year?

It's getting late for Planned Parenthood to begin promoting its annual "Choice on Earth" holiday cards, but the abortion behemoth hasn't done so yet this year, hm.

Could it be the gross gimmick was a financial loser? Or perhaps PP decided it can't handle any more negative publicity at the moment and prefers to lay low?

choice-on-earth.gifWhatever, the Evidence for God blog has graciously gone ahead and designed a "Choice on Earth" card for PP this year, left.

I stated in a 2007 post that PP began marketing its "Choice on Earth" cards in 1994, but now I can't find where I got that date.

As far as I can tell PP has for sure been selling its blasphemous cards since 2002, apparently skipping 2006.

This year all I see PP hawking this holiday season are gift certificates, once again offered by PP of IN (click to enlarge)...

Planned Parenthood of Indiana, gift certificates, abortion.png

Planned Parenthood cookies, abortion 3.png... and PP cookies offered by PP of Northern FL (click graphic for enlarged view).

Interestingly, it looks as if PP Golden Gate's store has shut down. Too bad. The flamboyant PPGG previously brought us "A Superhero for Choice," a cartoon depicting violence against pro-lifers that included decapitation, and its own Hanukkah styled "choice" card.

Live Action releases 1st in new Planned Parenthood disinformation investigative video series

This morning LiveAction.org released the 1st video in its new "Rosa Acuna Project" investigative series against Planned Parenthood. The focus of this exposé is PP's disinformation tactics when "counseling" abortion vulnerable mothers about their pregnancies.

First, bear in mind, as per LA's press release, "WI informed consent law requires that women receive medically accurate information before undergoing an abortion." Whoops, this WI PP must have missed that memo....

Live Action to launch new Planned Parenthood investigative video series tomorrow Wednesday

UPDATE, 12/08, 6:15a: According to Live Action's Facebook page, the premiere of its new investigative video series against Planned Parenthood has been delayed until Wednesday at 2p, not sure what time zone.

liveaction.org planned parenthood, abortion logo.jpg12/07, 11:23a: Tomorrow, according to a Facebook announcement, LiveAction.org will begin releasing videos in a new investigative series, "Investigating Planned Parenthood: An undercover look at medical lies, manipulation and murder."

I asked my friends at LA to give me a teaser on what it's about, but true to form, they are remaining tight-lipped. So I had to investigate the investigators for hints... :)

This was originally billed as follows:

liveaction.org rosa acuna.png

Who is Rosa Acuna? In a case that went all the way to the US Supreme Court (which declined to hear it in October 2008), plaintiff Rosa Acuna sued abortionist Sheldon Turkish for giving her false information about her preborn baby's development.

So there's at least one hint, also alluded to in the title.

liveaction.org planned parenthood, abortion, lila rose logo.jpgLA and its leader Lila Rose have been responsible for a several major hurts to the abortion industry.

Their focus in recent years has been PP, which it exposed via its Mona Lisa Project of covering up underage rapes and its Racism Investigation of willingness to receive financial donations to target preborn black babies for abortion.

I'm looking forward to the newest exposé.

Planned Parenthood loses request for injunction against former director Abby Johnson

I'm in Austin, TX, at the moment, preparing to speak at the Austin Coalition for Life banquet in a few. Most exciting is I'm told Abby Johnson is attending the banquet, too, and I'm very much looking forward to meeting her! Coincidentally, there's great news about Abby this afternoon.

According to a 40 Days for Life press statement:

Abby Johnson, Planned Parenthood loses, abortion.jpg

A district court judge denied a request for an injunction against Abby Johnson, who resigned as director of a Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas abortion facility in Bryan/College Station last month. The judge also denied a similar request directed at the Coalition for Life, the local pro-life organization that started the 40 Days for Life campaign in Bryan/College Station 5 years ago.

Pensacola abortion mill with sordid past shut down

UPDATE, 3:10p: WEARTV.com has news video about the Pensacola mill closing, including interviews with local 40 Days organizers, as well as its history of bombings and shootings.

[HT: Michael B.]
_______________

Community Healthcare Center, Pensacola, abortion, clinic, pro-life, 40 Days for Life.jpg

The FL Agency for Health Care Administration has shut down the Community Healthcare Center in Pensacola, FL, after it couldn't cough up $413k in fines for failing to renew a lab license for 413 days.

The AHCA served ample notice to the 25+ year old abortion mill in January, but when it hadn't settled its bill 10 months after the fact, the clinic "voluntarily" closed its doors October 30, according to AHCA via PNJ.com, after AHCA paid it a shakedown visit on October 20.

Too bad, so sad, PNJ.com also reports:

The closure leaves AMS of Pensacola... as the only abortion clinic in Escambia County.

40 Days for Life was keeping vigil at the mill during that time. What great news to learn on Day 38!

As an aside, this particular mill has a sordid history. It's where Paul Hill in 1995 killed abortionist John Britton and deathscort James Barrett.

One of the state's 5 Planned Parenthood clinics is closing its doors for good. The announcement came today, as officials say the Kalispell clinic will shut down, due to a decline in patients.

Workers detail complaints against late-term abortionist Carhart to newspaper

The Omaha World Herald reported August 21 that Bellevue, NE, late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart had fired 4 of his 10 employees, which became "the subject of a complaint filed with the state about possibly unsafe conditions." Carhart's explanation for the terminations, according to OWH:

carhart closeup 2.jpg

Carhart wrote in a letter to his former employees that the layoffs were the result of "the recent decrease in patient numbers and income."...

And that complaint?

"This is nothing new," he said. "They are always making stuff up, and they aren't very credible."

The NE Attorney General's office confirmed to Operation Rescue (1 of the groups spearheading the complaints) that it had forwarded it to the NE Dept. of Health and Human Services, "which would be the appropriate regulatory agency," wrote OWH.

Turns out there was a little more to things. According to OWH today...

Group announces ad campaign against Dubuque Planned Parenthood

One year ago Planned Parenthood opened an outlet in Dubuque, IA, despite warnings from the pro-life community it would create "an abortion pipeline to our town," according to a statement released yesterday by Dubuque Co. Right to Life, as well as provide a haven for child sexual predators and construct a firewall between parents and children.

Yesterday Dubuque Co. RTL announced Phase II of an educational campaign launched when PP opened its doors in Dubuque by near constant prayer vigils (3,000 hours logged by volunteers since last August 21) and educational talks before numerous groups.

Phase II, reported Dubuque Co. RTL Exec. Dir. Steven Brody in an email to me...

Newsweek journalist reports, "Watching my first abortion"

... But I'd never actually seen an abortion; I'd never watched the procedure that activists vehemently defend or deplore.... I wasn't sure I would. I confess I was hesitant to step into Carhart's operating room....

Newsweek profiles lauds late-term abortionist Carhart, "The abortion evangelist"

In today's Life Links, Jivin J mentioned the August 15 Newsweek profile on NE late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart.

The pro-abort bent of the piece was obvious from the provocative title, "The abortion evangelist." I can think of no other reason for such verbiage other than to insult and incite pro-life Christians.

Here was the accompanying video. There were no interview questions, just cutting back and forth between pro-aborts (Carhart, staff, and the clip of a Charlie Gibson newscast of George Tiller's death) and pro-life activists. Pro-aborts got 3:34 air time; pro-lifers got 1:17...

Laws, lies and videotape

The cleverly named pro-abortion group National Advocates for Pregnant Women has become alarmed at the number of personhood initiatives popping up in various states.

So it has produced 4 attack ads attempting to show how giving preborn babies legal status as persons usurps pregnant mothers' legal rights, forcing them through the courts to maintain pregnancies even if doing so kills them and forcing them to deliver babies via c-section against their will, etc.

The latest American Life League video report shows the ads, dissecting their lies and adding doses of truth. This report shows how pro-aborts twist, turn, and omit factual details to make their false points....


Randall Terry planning hostile takeover?

The Washington Post featured an interesting profile on pro-life activist Randall Terry July 15. Here are excerpts:

Leaders of the antiabortion movement are cringing at Terry's sudden return. They say his incendiary rhetoric and showy tactics turn off ordinary Americans and reflect Terry's struggle to regain his glory years.

randall terry 7.jpg

"It's sad in a way," said Fredericksburg antiabortion activist Patrick Mahoney, who was close to Terry at one time but, like others in the movement, is now estranged from him. "It's almost like a heavyweight boxer who's past his prime. The movement has gone by him."...

"The pro-life movement is getting its hind end kicked," [Terry] said, "because we think that we can literally upend the social order as it is now with a few phone calls, letters and 'We're going to sell a rose once a year and march once a year on the Capitol.' It's ludicrous."

He laughed. "I drive them crazy."...

Lila Rose exposes AL Planned Parenthood on The O'Reilly Factor

I previously posted about Live Action Films' latest video exposing Planned Parenthood's cover-up of statutory rape in yet another city and state, this time Birmingham, AL.

On July 10, LAF's Lila Rose went on Fox's O'Reilly Factor with AL Attorney General Troy King to discuss the Birmingham PP sting, which revealed PP was not only willing to cover-up underage rape but also to help minor girls avoid AL's parental consent law by getting false permission signatures:

King requested and got a copy of LAF's video to investigate PP's intent to break the law.

(FYI, late last week YouTube inexplicably censored LAF's undercover investigative video of the Birmingham PP without explanation, despite the fact LAF carefully followed their terms. In fact, YouTube has now removed all 8 of LAF's video exposes against PP.)

RH Reality Check: "Jill Stanek doesn't want to prevent abortions"

jill stanek doesn't want to prevent abortions.jpg

Where to begin...

I've been writing quite a bit on the new pro-abort tactic of wanting to find "common ground" on abortion.

One initial problem is the "common ground" parameters pro-aborts unilaterally set (kind of a "common ground" deal breaker from the get-go, I'd say) disallow any conversation on abortion when discussing "common ground" - on abortion. The closest they will allow is discussion of "reducing the need for abortion," but that cannot mean "reducing the number of abortions," no.

malachi.jpgI say we discuss what Americans would consider "common ground" on this topic, such as banning 3rd trimester abortions, sex-selection abortions, and race-based abortions.

Americans by-and-large agree those are bad. Americans also by-and-large agree parental involvement laws are good as are laws mandating informed consent before abortion.

Americans would be surprised to learn the abortion lobby disagrees, which is why we can't discuss abortion when trying to find "common ground" - on abortion. Americans would be shocked to learn hard core pro-aborts even disagree that aborting a baby who would otherwise be born under the wrong zodiac sign is wrong.

But I digress....

Abortion "common ground" suggestion: emulate NYC anti-smoking campaign

RH Reality Check has launched a new "common ground" site, inviting pro-life and pro-abortion thinkers to explore areas where we can work together.

obama irreconcilable.jpgOf course, the upper echelon of the abortion movement has no intention of finding common ground, which Obama himself recognized in his Notre Dame speech as ultimately "irreconcilable," as The Guardian headline from that date indicated.

The tag on that headline reveals why the push for "common ground" by Obama and his minions: They're losing the PR battle. As I've said before, only those losing appeal for compromise. Winners don't have to and shouldn't. At any rate, pro-lifers never will.

Nevertheless, I have a "common ground" suggestion, inspired by New York City's planned anti-smoking campaign. Obama said yesterday in a meeting with Catholic reporters...

Planned Parenthood of Alabama provides high quality health care and takes any allegation of this nature very seriously. An essential part of our mission is to protect teens, and to make sure that they get the counseling and medical care they need. We will conduct an internal, fact-based review to ensure that all our high standards of care have been met. PP of AL is committed to following all laws, and regularly makes reports to law enforcement officials. The health and safety of our patients is our top priority and we know that parents trust their teens to get accurate information and quality care at PP health centers.

EMILY's List: Promoting the opposite of what it is

EMILY's List is a PAC with 1 sole goal: Elect Democrat pro-abort women to Congress (click to enlarge):

emilys list mission 2.jpg

That's all EMILY's List is about. That's all it does.

Which is why I found it strange when attending the EMILY's List reception at last year's Democrat convention that speakers - from EL prez Ellen Malcolm to Hillary to Michelle - barely alluded to the word "choice," never mind "abortion." In 1.5 hours of speeches, the topic about which everyone was in the room got no more than 3 minutes total.

I find this so totally strange. Imagine attending a pro-life banquet and having speakers talk about everything else under the sun. I'd think the organization had lost its way. I'd want my money back.

But pro-abortion organizations avoid the topic all the time! More than that, they pretend they're about the opposite of abortion.

Case in point. I got an email from Ellen yesterday bragging on one of EL's candidates Kirsten Gillibrand, who replaced Hillary as US senator from NY. She is supported, may I remind you, solely because she's a raving pro-abort.

Ellen put together a nice photo album for us of Kirsten's daily life. And here was the album cover...

Politically correct visual of carnage

Reported the Daily News June 21:

They call her Neda, which means 'voice' in Farsi, and her death has become the central rallying cry of the Iranian rebellion.

neda.jpg

The pretty teenage girl killed by what appears to be a single sniper shot on the streets of Tehran Saturday is now a potent symbol for pro-democracy protesters battering the Islamic regime.

Her quick and brutal death in the arms of her howling father was captured on close-up video, posted to Facebook and sent to computer screens across the world....

Iconic posters of her dead face, open-eyed and bloody, were carried by demonstrators in Los Angeles and NYC within hours....

The expat said her name was Neda Soltani, a 16-year-old philosophy student....

One of the many other videos... captured Neda in the last moments of her life, standing on a curb with her silver-haired father, simply watching the protesters go by.

Neda's martyrdom has the potential to be a galvanizing event....

Jill Stanek aggravates Nancy Keenan

Media Matters, a liberal organization that tracks conservative bias in the media, gathered like-minded advocacy group leaders Thursday to discuss how the right-wing media had "mainstreamed the fringe."...

Fox News was the biggest target of the panel's criticism with panelists bashing hosts Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck and others for what they called reckless rhetoric designed to incite extremist audience members. Media Matters also singled out talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh....

Pro-aborts raise money and menace on Tiller killing

It is what it is. In the Obama administration the abortion industry has a powerful accomplice to attempt to intimidate and silence pro-lifers.

Even as the House Homeland Security Committee launches an investigation into how the Department of Homeland Security came to label pro-life activists as potential domestic terrorists, we already know. We already knew, actually. They're just saying it.

And kudos to Eleanor Smeal for waiting 10 whole days before attempting to raise money off the death of late-term abortionist George Tiller.

Breaking news: Tiller's mill closed permanently

Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgJust received the following article from Operation Rescue's Troy Newman with this note:

Dear Friends, It is a bittersweet moment. Operation Rescue was just 2 months away from getting Tiller's medical license revoked and that would have accomplished the same goal.

From KWCH this morning:

Lee Thompson and Dan Monnat, attorneys for the family of Dr. George Tiller, issued the following statement today:

tiller sign.jpg

"The family of Dr. George Tiller announces that effective immediately, Women's Health Care Services, Inc., will be permanently closed. Notice is being given today to all concerned that the Tiller family is ceasing operation of the clinic and any involvement by family members in any other similar clinic.

We are proud of the service and courage shown by our husband and father and know that women's health care needs have been met because of his dedication and service. That is a legacy that will never die. The family will honor Dr. Tiller's memory through private charitable activities.

The Tiller family wishes to assure Dr. Tiller's past patients that the privacy of their medical histories and patient records will remain as fiercely protected now and in the future as they were during Dr. Tiller's lifetime."

There will be no more statements or comments on behalf of the family on this matter.

Carhart compares Tiller to MLK, pro-lifers to KKK

From the Washington Times today, some remarkable statements by sloven late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart:

crosses kkk pro-life.jpg

Dr. LeRoy Carhart, one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions, called on the federal government to treat as hate crimes all activities by "anti-choice domestic terrorists," compared the slain Dr. George Tiller to Martin Luther King and said planting crosses was equivalent to actions by the Ku Klux Klan.

"This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated," Dr. Carhart said of the May 31 slaying of one of America's best-known late-term abortion providers. "This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long."...

Murder in church = martyrdom?

Patrick O'Hannigan wrote a good piece in yesterday's American Spectator. When pro-aborts want abortion to be a constitutional rather than a religious right, it is so. When they want it to be a religious rather than a constitutional right, it is so.

... I do not write to speak ill of the dead. My argument here is with the living.

More specifically, I have a quarrel with Rev. Katherine Ragsdale and those others who imply that anyone killed on church property automatically becomes a martyr. It presumes too much to hint that the crime scene tape used by police officers has sanctifying power, yet this muddle-headed version of "murder in the cathedral" seems to be the prevailing view...

Missing from George Tiller's eulogy

Tiller casket.jpg

Of everything I read about the June 6 funeral of late-term abortionist George Tiller, I thought this was the most telling, from the New York Times:

But for the most part, Dr. Tiller's funeral focused less on his work than on his life with his family and friends. The word abortion was never uttered....

This shows they all knew. Tiller was unjustly murdered for his "life's" work by a mentally unstable person, but the reason was not mentionable? Very sad. Even in death George Tiller's "vocation" was anathema.

Imagine eulogizing anyone else murdered for a cause without lauding that for which they were slain. It would be a travesty....

Olbermann names Stanek "Worst Person in the World!"

UPDATE, 11:20p: I'm bestowed my honor beginning at 2:00 on the tape...

[HT: reader Janet]
_______________

In a small slew of emails calling me the c-word I read the news that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann named me the "Worst Person in the World!" tonight. Sure enough!

002.JPGMy award comes for supposedly making the supposedly last 2 late-term abortionists in the free world sitting ducks for Tiller copycat killers by posting their addresses and photos of their mills.

Never mind that I didn't actually post the addresses of LeRoy Carhart and Warren Hern (see posts here and here), had I done so it would have been akin to posting the address of President Obama and being accused of making him a target for nutcases.

Libs, get a brain. These guys both advertise on the web. They want people to know where they operate, pardon the pun.

Tomorrow Keith had best make Google the "Worst Search Engine in the World!" for posting a map and directions to Carhart's Abortion & Contraception Clinic of Nebraska and Hern's Boulder Abortion Clinic....

Pro-lifers push back against intimidation attempts

Well, well. With a unified voice pro-lifers are condolent but refusing to cower and accept blame for the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller by a noncompliant schizophrenic.

This is such a surprise it's newsworthy. According to The Washington Independent yesterday, which apparently reads this blog:

... [A]nti-abortion activists have begun to push back against the news that Department of Justice dispatched federal marshals to protect abortion clinics that requested extra, temporary security....

washington independent logo.gif

And the murder of a military recruiter in Little Rock - Muslim convert Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad is the suspect - has prodded activists to portray coverage of Tiller's murder as unfairly slanted and overblown. Jill Stanek, an anti-abortion blogger and activist ... responded... with a simple, unsubtle question: "Where are Obama and Holder?" Gary Bauer... told TWI that the "benefit of the doubt" was given to Islamic terrorists but not to anti-abortion extremists....

By the close of Tuesday, anti-abortion activists had moved from messages of condolence for Tiller to aggressive pushback on any use of the murder as a political issue....

Pro-lifers are also refusing to sidestep who Tiller was, what he did. Ann Coulter's column yesterday on Tiller was quite the back-atcha...

Late-term abortionist Carhart wants to continue Tiller's "mission"

From the Associated Press, June 2:

Abortion mill replaces Christ with rubber chicken

women's center chicken.jpgLast April, I wrote about pro-abort shenanigans at the Northern Illinois Woman's Center in Rockford, IL (here and here), where staff hung a lynched rubber chicken in the window, displayed dolls in coffins, dressed like satan, and threatened pro-lifers, all with no notice from MSM.

It appears the noosed chicken turned off many of the mill's African-American clients, so staff recently hung it instead on a cross and also made other aesthetic changes. These came as a result, according to pro-lifer on the scene, Kevin, who also took the following pictures as recently as last Friday:

It seems these pictures were this abortion mill's response to the success of the Rockford 40 Days for Life campaign. We know of 19 moms who chose life, and that upset the abortionist and clinic owner.

Correcting the record: Abortions went down under President Bush, not up

During last night's "discussion" between pro-life/pro-Obama Prof. Doug Kmiec and pro-life/anti-Obama Prof. Robert George, Kmiec repeated a false statement.

Kmiec said the number of abortions went UP under President George W. Bush. On Fox News Sunday May 17 Fr. Richard McBrien, a pro-Obama Notre Dame theology professor, made the same erroneous claim in a debate with Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life.

President Bush with child.jpgMy friend, Professor (and statistical analyzer) Michael New, wants to correct the record:

The data do not bear this out. In fact the most recent data from both the Centers for Disease Control and the Alan Guttmacher Institute (research arm of Planned Parenthood) indicate that abortions fell during George W. Bush's presidency.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute between 2000 and 2005 the number of abortions declined from 1,312,990 to 1,206,200 (a decline of 8.1%, data obtained from all 50 states)....

KS Planned Parenthood's paltry pep rally

Last Friday KS state Sen. Tim Huelskamp's amendment to defund Planned Parenthood was sent to the desk of pro-abort Gov. Mark Parkinson (who took Kathleen Sebelius' place) to sign.

Parkinson has less than a week to make his decision.

Don't forget PP of of KS and Mid-MO is currently charged with over 100 criminal counts of illegal late-term abortions, tampering with evidence, and other typical PP offenses. Yet the State of KS still funds PP handsomely, to the tune of $300k annually.

Yesterday pro-abort blogger Kansas Jackass issued a rally call! Count 'em, 4 pro-abort groups were co-sponsoring an event on the steps of the state capitol today to show support for PP! Click to enlarge...

Pro-life pressure is stopping late-term abortions at UW Madison Hospital

Tacky Judy Blume Planned Parenthood pitch makes LAT

judy blume 5.jpgControversial children's book author Judy Blume took such a hit in the pro-life community (read here and here) for making a Mother's Day fundraising pitch for Planned Parenthood - double couthless - the Los Angeles Times has even taken notice. Wrote columnist Meghan Daum today:

But in seeing this saga unfold in my inbox, I was struck by a troubling question. Even though Blume may not be associated with abortion in and of itself (none of her protagonists ever got one), is there something about her persona that signals a lack of dispassion about its ramifications? Is she reminding people of a time when, in the relief of Roe being decided, there was a cultural perception that abortion was a simple procedure that needn't come with attendant emotional baggage?...

Backlash against children's book author's support of Planned Parenthood

Yesterday, I reported controversial children's author Judy Blume is this year's celebrity Planned Parenthood's Mother's Day pitch(fork) woman.

Well, today PP CEO Cecile Richards issued a surprising pity plea for Judy (click to enlarge):

pp judy blume III.jpg

I find this development very interesting. It could just be a cynical ploy by PP to get more money, which you'll note Cecile did do.

judy blume photo.jpgBut I think the situation must be serious for Cecile to admit pro-lifers are getting to Judy.

By so doing, Cecile draws even more attention to the fact a children's author is inexplicably recruiting support for the United States' largest abortion provider.

Cecile is also admitting PP has a growing stigma attached to it, which may give other celebrity PP supporters pause.

Verrry interesting.

2009 Planned Parenthood Mother's Day fundraiser

Last year Planned Parenthood used the mother-daughter pro-abortion team of Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow as its Mother's Day
pitch(fork) women.

This year it's children's book author Judy Blume. Not that Judy was considered harmless and child friendly before now, despite her target audience. Wikipedia reports, "She is recognized as one of the most banned children's authors in the United States.... Forever was the second most challenged book of 2005, according to the American Library Association."

We now know Judy means to target her audience yet another way, by supporting the US's largest abortion provider.

Sometimes I think PP does these things just to aggravate us. "There is no organization that I know of that supports motherhood and all that it means more than Planned Parenthood"? This is so ridiculous I have to laugh. Click to enlarge...

Inside the late-term Madison Abortion Clinic

UDPATE, 7:35a: Friend Patte S. tells me these clips are from the movie Lake of Fire. Ah, ok.
_______________

The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform Southwest posted this rather incredible video April 11.

I don't know how CBRSW got permission to film or got hold of this film, taken inside the Madison Abortion Clinic in WI and showing a 20-week abortion by abortionist Dennis Christensen. Christensen is at the center of controvery involving the University of WI Madison starting to commit late-term abortions, about which I previously wrote.

I'd never seen how abortionists actually prepare baby parts to piece back together, and I didn't know they measure chopped fetal extremities like a foot with a ruler to determine age. You see all that beginning at 1:22 on the video.

The mothers' stories are also tragic: abandoned, foolish, selfish.

People need to see this stuff to know what we're talking about behind the ambiguous word "choice."

Planned Parenthood Memphis digs hole deeper

Many if not all TN state legislators received an email from Planned Parenthood Memphis Region on April 24 attempting to respond to the release of Lila Rose's undercover video showing a PPMR employee perfectly willing to help who she thought was a 14-year-old girl cover up her rape and pregnancy by her 31-year-old "boyfriend."

In its email PPMR blamed the misinformation on these points:

  • Lila was a walk-in
  • PPMR was very busy that day
  • The rapist-enabling worker was actually an interpreter, not a counselor

    These raise even more questions. Is PP so inept it doesn't know when to stop accepting patients? Or is it more concerned about getting $$ rather than providing safe patient care? Is PP saying it does not train its interpreters on TN law? How many other girls did this interpreter "counsel"?

    PPMR Ceo Barry Chase also incorrectly identified TN's minor parental involvement law as "notification" when it is actually "consent." Big difference. He is unaware?

    In addition, after 1st acknowledging the authenticity of Lila's video and what was told her by the PPMR employee, Chase incredibly stated PPMR's employees don't break the law and all receive "knowledgeable, professional" counseling. Huh?...

  • Lila Rose on Glenn Beck

    I received word too late Friday to let you know Lila Rose of LiveActionFilms was appearing on Fox News' Glenn Beck show to discuss its 6th Mona Lisa Project undercover video released.

    All videos have been shot at Planned Parenthoods across the country, this one in Memphis, showing the organization institutionally covers up child rape.

    Lila is just excellent in this interview! One of her best quotes: "These little girls aren't being looked at holistically, they're being looked at as plumbing problems."

    Note Lila consistently calls these young victims "little girls," which is savvy use of terminology.

    Note Lila also states PP gets "a third of a billion dollars in tax money," which is much more descriptive than "335 million."

    On April 26, The Los Angeles Times also published a combination feature story about Lila and expose of PP's cover-up of child rape. It is surprisgingly fair. PP comes out looking bad, as it should...

    The public has the right to view evidence in the case of a woman accused of illegally providing healthcare during a botched abortion at a Hialeah clinic, a judge ruled Thursday.

    Lawyers for Belkis Gonzalez, 44, citing extensive media coverage and harsh commentary in Internet postings on anti-abortion websites, had asked that evidence be kept secret to ``assure a fair trial.''

    2 mothers notified complaints against Tiller moving forward

    I previously reported that on March 27, immediately after a jury found KS late-term abortionist George Tiller not guilty of 19 misdemeanor charges, the KS Board of Healing Arts issued a statement it was proceeding with more serious charges, including fraud.

    Operation Rescue reported today it has been made aware KSBHA has notified 2 women who previously levied charges against Tiller that their cases "remain open and are progressing through the system," according to OR.

    One complaint by a woman identified as Shaye is Tiller's office lowered the gestational age of her baby after 1st arriving at an age by ultrasound too advanced for TIller to abort without getting a 2nd opinion and breaking the law.

    Compelling details of Shaye's case are in this OR video:

    patient s.jpgThe 2nd mother hearing from KSBHA, known as Patient S., apparently suffered cardiac arrest during her abortion but was taken to the hospital after being revived by TIller in his personal car and told to keep her IV bag out of sight.

    I've spoken to several people who are very close to this case, and the expectation is that Tiller will be acquitted.

    epilogue.jpg

    The state's lackadaisal case, one knowledgeable observer said, was "embarrassing." The state assigned a single prosecutor to the case. Tiller has a 5-member team, including a former US Attorney. The state called one witness - Kristin Neuhaus, the doctor who signed off on Tiller's near-birth abortions. She was given immunity by [pro-abortion Attorney General Steve] Six and, not surprisingly, was an extremely hostile witness....

    Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgYou read that right.

    As opposed to the 60,000 babies he has aborted, George Tiller's legal troubles have lived to see another day.

    Immediately after a jury yesterday cleared the KS abortionist of 19 charges of breaking KS law by getting a 2nd opinion for late-term abortions from an abortionist with whom he had financial ties, the KS Board of Healing Arts released the following statement (click to enlarge)...

    Hillary Clinton to receive Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Award tonight

    sanger clinton.jpgThe Washington Post reported today:

    Recently back from Mexico, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton... spends the day in TX.....
    In the evening, Clinton attends a gala in Houston to receive the Margaret Sanger Award from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America for her advocacy of "women's health and rights throughout her public service career."

    Added the National Journal:

    HRC accepted the invite well before she became Sec/State, but her appearance is a stark reminder of the big role HRC has played in abortion-rights politics ... and the bigger role women played in her '08 campaign.

    Can't respond to this any better than Family Research Council did last night:

    Of course, the question remains whether this award is even an honor. If "no one is pro-abortion," as Barack Obama insists, then why agree to be celebrated by the number one supplier of abortion in America?...

    Don't worry, AZ Planned Parenthood has investigated itself

    When last we left Planned Parenthood of Arizona , Lila Rose and LiveActionFilms.org had released a 2nd video of employees at a 2nd and 3rd PP in the Grand Canyon state showing a willingness to cover-up underage rape.

    The 1st video showing the 1st cover-up, released February 3, resulted in a whole bunch of nothing happening.

    This likely had to do with the fact that AZ Attorney General Terry Goddard was coincidentally scheduled to give the keynote address at a PP event that night, obviously in the bag for the US's largest chain of chop shops.

    The 2nd video released resulted in an interesting denial by Goddard to the Arizona Republic that his office was investigating PP despite a letter from the Pima Co. attorney to the contrary (click to enlarge)...

    Goddard must have decided not to worry because, as AR reported, PP AZ has conducted an investigation of itself, and things amiss are now fine...

    Tiller trial Days 2 and 3 recap

    See previous posts, "Tiller trial opens to abortionist fatigue," and "Tiller trial Day 1 recap."

    Day 2 of the trial of KS abortionist George Tiller, accused of breaking KS law by getting a 2nd opinion for late-term abortions from an abortionist with whom he had financial ties, saw that abortionist, Ann Kristin Neuhaus, retake the stand.

    ann kristin neuhaus.jpgIMO, the most interesting Neuhaus factoid was that she wore the same jacket as the previous day and looked "disheveled," according to Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue, twittering from inside the courtroom. Tacky.

    But maybe Neuhaus is just broke after several medicinal practitioner malfunctions. Despite her protests, prosecutor Barry Disney reminded the court Neuhaus has been disciplined by the KS Board of Healing Arts once for failing to keep proper records of controlled drugs dispensed and another time for failing to provide informed consent, failing to properly monitor aborting patients, and forcibly aborting a mother against her will - for which her license was revoked.

    So Neuhaus had her license back but no patients when taking Tiller's gig to rubber stamp his post-viable abortions.

    But enough about Neuhaus. On to Day 3 and Tiller's testimony. On the stand Tiller appeared zombielike. Perhaps he accidentally lobotomized himself when trying to suction brains out of a half-born baby....

    Tiller trial Day 1 recap

    See previous post, "Tiller trial opens today to abortionist fatigue."

    tiller 6666.jpgYesterday the trial of late-term KS abortionist George Tiller opened.

    Tiller is accused of 19 counts of violating KS law by seeking a mandated 2nd opinion for late-term abortions from someone with whom he had financial ties, Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus.

    Yesterday on the stand Neuhaus came down with Hillary Clinton I Don't Seem to Recall Syndrome, even though the prosecution has granted her a wide swath of immunity.

    Pro-life pastor begins 30 day jail sentence

    I previously reported that pastor Walter Hoye had been handed a 30-day sentence for violating a new Oakland, CA, law creating a free speech buffer zone around abortion mills. Well, the sentence has begun. Reported the San Francisco Chronicle on March 21:

    pastor hoye.jpg

    A pastor at a Berkeley church was jailed Friday for 30 days after unsuccessfully arguing that an order requiring him to stay 100 yards away from an Oakland abortion clinic violates his right to free speech.

    Walter Hoye, 52, of Union City was the first person convicted under an Oakland ordinance barring protesters from coming within 8 feet of anyone entering an abortion clinic.

    In February, Judge Stuart Hing of Alameda County Superior Court sentenced Hoye to three years' probation and 30 days in jail, and ordered him to pay $1,000....

    Although neither side will discuss the evidence, the state is expected to contend that Tiller's relationship with Ann Kristin Neuhaus, the 2nd doctor who signed off on the 19 abortions in question, violated the physician independence provision. Each count carries a maximum penalty of as long as a year in prison and a $2,500 fine....

    Pedophile protecting Planned Parenthood caught again

    Live Action Films today released video #4 in its Mona Lisa Project. This is a series of short films secretly shot at Planned Parenthoods around the country last summer exposing mill workers perfectly willing to help underage girls who had been statutorily raped by adult men get abortions without notifying authorities.

    First, let's review.

  • LAF released its 1st 2 videos (read here and here) exposing 2 IN PPs in December. These resulted in a sacrificial firing of 1 staffer, resignation of another but most importantly an attorney general investigation.

  • Video #3 showed a Tucson, PP aiding and abetting underage rape. PP of AZ said they would investigate. Big whoop. That was 6 weeks ago with silence since.
  • Video #4 continues the exposure of PP of AZ child sex abuse. It captures PP workers at 2 Phoenix chop shops engaging in yet another rape cover-up.

    The LAF press release reminded us PP of AZ has a history...

    KS Supreme Court leak?

    Jury selection began yesterday for the long delayed trial of Wichita, KS, late-term abortionist George Tiller, accused of getting nonobjective 2nd opinions from business associate Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus.

    The charges, though far less than they should have been, vindicate relentlessly maligned Phill Kline - again, who got the evidence.

    Meanwhile Kline is being punished - again. Recall the words of rabid pro-abort, Sebelius-picked, KS Supreme Court Justice Carol Beier (former National Women's Law Center attorney), who strangely wrote Kline deserved "sanction by this court" when handing down a verdict clearing him of complaints filed by Planned Parenthood. She was really, really mad about that, as I previously indicated.

    Beier got what she wanted when the Supreme court-appointed Disciplinary Board for Attorneys notified Kline and 2 subordinates in February regarding complaints of ethics violations, as yet unnamed.

    This is where it gets interesting. Two reporters got tips about the secret ethics complaint, John Hanna of the Associated Press, and Ron Sylvester of the Wichita Eagle. Here's his story...

    LeRoy Carhart, pick up the phone

    In January NE late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart had to close his mill for damage after an accidental fire.

    carhart closeup.jpgCarhart reopened to brisk business this past Saturday, according to pro-life activist Larry Donlan on the scene. And Carhart aborted yesterday, too - a Sunday. (Does this mean he skipped church?)

    But Carhart forgot one thing, to get his occupancy permit.

    This morning Donlan notified Bellevue building inspectors. I just called Steve Carmichael of the City Planning Dept. and asked if Carhart was shut down.

    "I left him a voicemail," Carmichael told me, "because he wouldn't answer the phone. I said he could not open until his deficiencies were completed and he got a final permit for occupancy."...

    Black church invites White Planned Parenthood

    The ignorance of blacks - even black churches - to the eugenic underpinnings of Planned Parenthood could not be any more epitomized than as described in today's Virginian-Pilot:

    At New Light Full Gospel Baptist Church, congregants' benchmark on most topics is "the Word," meaning the Bible.

    But on a recent night, more than 50 New Light adults and teens opened up to words from an additional source - Planned Parenthood, on stopping teen pregnancy.

    Among many faith-based groups, few organizations are less popular than Planned Parenthood, a provider of women's health services, sex education and abortions.

    rashti.jpg

    Yet on this night, teen pregnancy was something Planned Parenthood speaker Margie Rashti [pictured left] and New Light members all agreed was troubling and preventable.

    "We come together as a team, working to try to pass down wisdom to the young ladies and young men who are part of this pandemic we call teen pregnancy," Elder Frankie Fells said in his opening prayer....

    Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards pushes universal abortion care at Summit

    Yesterday President Obama hosted a health care summit at the White House. It has already been noted no pro-life healthcare groups were invited.

    wh health 2.jpgBut pro-abortion groups were present in abundance. Following is Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards' statement.

    Listen carefully. Richards wants universal health care because the "millions of women who come to us are primarily low income." PP's clientele keeps it from raising its prices, which have increased only slightly over the decades. PP needs government intervention to increase its profit. This is one of 2 reasons why PP wants mandated taxpayer coverage for all PP's services, including, of course, abortion.

    (Richards also stated that within her 887 clinics 97% of services are for "preventative health," i.e., not abortion. I've previously explained how this largest abortion provider in the US skews stats. Interesting, btw, is the fact Cecile never mentioned the A-word in her statement.)...

    Free Coburn! II

    free coburn2.jpgOur pro-abort friends at RH Reality Check were kind enough to upload this interview I saw on Fox with US Senator Tom Coburn on March 3 and hoped would end up on YouTube.

    In the interview Coburn discussed not only the harm that would befall women if the US restored taxpayer funding to the United Nations Population Fund but also his response if, as a doctor, he were compelled to abort.

    The latter is lately in the news since President Obama plans to lift enforcement of healthcare providers' conscience protections.

    Coburn: I'll never do it. Never do it.

    Megyn Kelly: You'd rather go to a jail cell.

    Coburn: You bet. Anytime.

    I love Tom Coburn!

    Stanek and "guerilla warfare"

    Because I was on vacation in January I never got a chance to mention Newsweek quoted me in a piece it did on the anniversary of Roe v Wade:

    "He's [Obama] got the House, he's got the Senate, so I think we may go more guerilla warfare, or go back to working harder on your own turf, protesting at your abortion clinic in your town," says Jill Stanek, a prominent pro-life blogger.

    There was more, but that was the germane part to this post.

    Breaking news: Belkis Gonzalez arrested

    UPDATE, 3/4, 4:15p: Attorney Tom Brejcha of the Thomas More Society, lead firm in the aborted baby's mother's civil lawsuit, has just issued this statement:

    While we most certainly welcome the bringing of criminal charges against Ms. Gonzalez, whose abortion business represents nothing less than a serious public health hazard, we must express our grave disappointment, indeed our outrage, that no homicide charges have been brought on account of the wrongful death of this little girl.

    Not only the coroner's report, but also eyewitness testimony, prove that this infant was born alive then brutally killed. That constitutes homicide under the law of FL and treating it as anything less than that ignores fundamental legal principles and offends simple human decency. We demand that Dade County's law enforcers add a homicide charge, or at least an attempted homicide charge, without any more delay.

    Free Coburn!

    Jivin J reported last week the Obama administration plans to overturn an HHS rule implemented by the Bush administration that protects medical professionals. Tthe Wall Street Journal explained what this rule does:

    [The rule] says hospitals, pharmacies and other entities that be charged with discrimination and lose federal funds [Medicaid, Medicare, SCHIP, etc.] if they pressure employees to take part in treatments to which they object on religious or moral grounds....

    Still... Obama in August criticized the then-proposed rule and said he was "committed to ensuring that the health and reproductive rights of women are protected."

    In other words, Obama doesn't want federal medical worker/entity conscience protections enforced. Obama considers it "protect[ion]" to force health care providers to participate in abortion.

    free coburn2.jpgYesterday CNS News reported US Senator Tom Coburn (R-TN), an ob/gyn, is telling Obama, "Go ahead. Make my day."

    Coburn... [said] many medical practitioners, including himself, will go to prison before agreeing to engage in medical practices they morally oppose, such as abortion....

    The Obama administration's "review" is considered the precursor to rescinding the regulation.

    "I think a lot of us will go to jail," Coburn told CNSNews.com when asked what would happen if the administration reverses the policy. "Let's see them prosecute the first one of us for not doing that."

    The Fight "Fight FOCA" campaign targets Catholic Church

    Ok, after reading this February 26 Washington Post piece it's clear to me.

    Putting that together with Amy Sullivan's February 19 Time magazine article calling the Freedom of Choice Act a "mythical abortion bill," here are the pro-abort talking points to counter the mounting surge against FOCA:

  • Pro-lifers are on hallucinogenics. FOCA isn't happening.

  • Pro-life groups are using FOCA to raise money.

  • Conservative Catholics are at the bottom of the Fight FOCA frenzy.
  • It appears the long knives are out against Catholic US Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS)....

    Pro-aborts to protest pregnancy care centers

I have to say it was comedian Chris Rock who was my inspiration. I watched the following video a couple years ago, and it made total sense. In fact, if you can get past Rock's foul mouth and sexual explicitness, you'll see many truths in what he has to say. WARNING: R-rated...

    While pro-lifers around the country now gather twice annually at abortion mills for 40 days, often around the clock (aside from thousands of other times annually), FMF can only rally its femitroops 1 day, April 13, strangely a Monday. I guess college women who advertise they're pro-birth control and pro-abortion are much in demand on weekends.

    Sebelius' HHS nomination to be aborted for her fringe abortion views?

    The White House has made it no secret pro-abortion KS Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is in the running for HHS Secretary.

    tiller sebelius.jpgSebelius is closely linked to Wichita late-term abortionist George Tiller, trying to clog any prosecutorial wheels of justice against him and even hosting a secret soirée in his honor at the mansion.

    Sebelius has committed many more anti-life dastardly deeds, which Operation Rescue has extensively chronicled here, including orders from her Catholic bishop to walk on by the Eucharist without partaking.

    Breaking news: Late-term abortionist George Tiller to stand trial

    Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgThis from the Associated Press within the hour:

    A judge has refused to toss out the criminal case against a doctor accused of violating KS' late-term abortion law.

    Sedgwick Co. Judge Clark Owens on Wednesday denied a defense request to dismiss charges against Dr. George Tiller of Wichita or throw out evidence because of the conduct of former prosecutor Phill Kline.

    Owens found that Kline's conduct during the investigation of Tiller did not warrant such action.

    Tiller is scheduled to go to trial on March 16 on 19 misdemeanor charges alleging he failed to obtain a second opinion for some late-term abortions from an independent physician, as required by KS law.

    What Obama should say tonight about abortion

    When pro-lifers occupy the White House, we pro-lifers ponder what they should say during their State of Union addresses about our issue (and we're usually disappointed).

    obama state of the union.jpgNow it is the other side's turn. President Obama isn't giving a State of the Union speech tonight, but it will look an awful lot like one. So pro-aborts are weighing in.

    I frankly hope Obama says nothing about abortion. Whatever he might say would infuriate me, particularly if he sympathizes that this is a tough issue (why?), but he trusts women and doctors to make the right decision. In reality Obama is so hard-core cold and calculatingly pro-abortion he is pro-infanticide if letting abortion survivors live would get in abortion's way.

    Aspen Baker at RH Reality Check has made a pitch for Obama to address post-abortive mothers, which I find surprising. Baker thought Obama "should acknowledge the unique and legitimate moral and emotional experiences of women who have had abortions." In fact, Baker went so far as to write Obama's doing so could "reframe the whole debate...."

    Baker listed suggestions to Obama from pro-abortion post-abortive women, a group she is apparently a member of....

    Lila Rose is not the only whistleblower out of CA. Enter State Sen. Sam Aanestad who has blown the cover off the inaptly named "Early Pregnancy Care" project.

    He writes in The American Thinker today:

    The purpose of this experiment? "Demonstrate the role of advanced practice clinicians in expanding early pregnancy care."

    That's Orwellian for "training non-physicians to perform first trimester abortions."

    In the pilot project, approved in 2006 without legislative oversight, Planned Parenthood sites in three CA cities suspended state regulations to use Nurse Midwives, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants to perform surgical abortions by suction aspiration.

    Never mind committing abortions by nonphysicians is prohibted by one CA professional code and the Nursing and Medical Boards of CA. Planners hijacked a 30-year-old pilot project to combat the aging workforce by asserting, according to Aanestad, that "the access to early abortion services is an important public health goal."...

    During today's hearing, Renelique was asked by one of the doctors on the FL Board of Medicine to identify various types of medical equipment and whether he had them in his clinic. Renelique responded that he had and the doctor proceeded to inform Renelique that the instruments were from her antique collection and are no longer used.
    _______________

    UPDATE, 2/6, 11:05a: The Associated Press has issued a short story on Renelique's license revocation.

    Here are the ABC and CBS stories.

    Here's a Tampa Bay Online story with an interesting quote:

    Renelique's attorney, Joseph Harrison, told the medical board, "His record of a lifetime of practicing medicine does not warrant revocation."

    The patient, Harrison said, "came in for an abortion. This patient came in to have the fetus rendered and terminated."

    In other words, by infanticide the mother got what she originally intended, so what's the prob?
    _______________

    Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgThis morning the FL Board of Medicine revoked the medical license of abortonist Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique.

    Just spoke with Tom Pennekamp driving on his way home from the hearing.

    Pennekamp is the FL attorney who filed a civil lawsuit in conjunction with the Thomas More Society on January 27 against Renelique, abortion clinic owner Belkis Gonzalez, and 11 others on behalf of Sycloria Williams for the homicide of her daughter, Shanice.

    Obama slips money to abortion industry thru "faith-based" program

    obama prayer.jpgPresident Obama speaking at today's National Day of Prayer breakfast in DC:

    There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know.

    Oh, really?

    Directly afterward, Obama signed an executive order redirecting the focus of the faith-based initiatives program launched by his predecessor. According to NPR:

    The program departs from President Bush's by focusing on family planning and Muslim outreach.

    Obama renamed the program the White House office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

    So here we see another way Obama is slipping money to the abortion industry, audaciously through "faith-based" taxpayer-funding on the National Day of Prayer after admitting God would not condone the taking of innocent human life.

    Overseas abortion funding least popular decision by Obama

    mexico city 65.jpgUPDATE, 2/4, 11a: According to Family Research Council, Americans aren't the only ones who are unhappy with President Obama for overturning the Mexico City Policy, which kept international abortion groups from getting U.S. tax dollars. FRC reported yesterday:

    Countries across Latin America have lashed out at the new White House for contaminating their laws with anti-life policies. Congresswoman Martha Lorena de Casco of Honduras said she felt "sorrow" that one of the President's first acts was to threaten her country's pro-life law. Representatives from Argentina, El Salvador, and other countries echoed de Casco encouraging Americans to follow their example and respect the right to life in national law.

    As I've [Tony Perkins] said before, President Obama's election was the result of an economic mandate, not a social one. The further he deviates from that mandate, the more likely he is to lose it.

    Breaking news: AZ Planned Parenthood covers up statutory rape

    Press release from Lila Rose and Live Action Films just out:

    Thumbnail image for breaking.jpg

    New hidden-camera footage from Tucson, AZ, implicates a 3rd Planned Parenthood clinic in a multi-state child abuse scandal. In the video, UCLA student Lila Rose and her friend Jackie Stollar enter a Tucson PP clinic where Rose tells the nurse that Stollar, posing as a 15-year-old, is pregnant by her 27-year-old boyfriend. The nurse disregards the age difference and even cautions Stollar not to bring her "boyfriend" before the judicial hearing required in AZ to waive parental consent for an abortion....

    Guttmacher "research": no logic allowed

    circular reasoning.gifGot a note from Dr. Michael New this morning:

    A couple weeks ago something exciting happened. The Alan Guttmacher Institute attacked my recent Family Research Council study which demonstrated the effectiveness of pro-life parental involvement laws. This means I am making all the right enemies.

    Their criticisms were not exactly persuasive. In fact, they even cite a 2006 New England Journal of Medicine study which very strongly supports my position.

    Top 10 abortion stories of 2008

    photo late term.jpgOperation Rescue has posted its top 10 abortion stories of 2008. All are good, but one caught my eye that I'd wanted to report at the time but couldn't get to, OR's #8:

    Late abortions in KS decrease by 54% since Operation Rescue's arrival

    Statistics for 2007, released by the KS Dept. of Health and Environment this year, show that since Operation Rescue relocated to KS in 2002, late-term post-viability abortions have dropped an amazing 54%. That includes a 28% decrease in 2007, a year in which OR hosted three major prayer events, and continued to expose Tiller wrong-doing.

    A most interesting statistic to me was that late-term abortions dropped 23% in KS from 2006 to 2007, indicating Tiller is being much more cautious about committing late-term abortions with OR dogging him and the ongoing investigations that were launched 5 years ago by Phill Kline....

    Planned Parenthood subpoenas Phill Kline for 6th time

    I wrote in my column yesterday that part of Planned Parenthood of KS/George Tiller's strategy to beat Phill Kline's rap against them is to file nuisance lawsuits and subpoenas to persecute their prosecutor.

    phill kline flag.jpgThe ink is barely dry on the KS Supreme Court's latest decision against PP and in favor of Kline, and the Associated Press is reporting PP plans to file its SIXTH subpoena against Kline to go over the same issue: the working copies of records he has. The goal is, obviously, to trip Kline up and accuse him of perjury. From the AP article:

    [PP attorney Pedro] Irigonegaray said he wants to force Kline to testify and to produce a detailed accounting of the records in his possession and who's had access to them.

    I repeat, if the court allows this, it would be the SIXTH interrogration of Kline by PP on the SAME ISSUE. The premise of the subpoena is PP's concern Kline will take the records with him when he leaves office, which is absurd:

    Irigonegaray acknowledged he's received no complaint or notice that Kline intends to take materials with him when he leaves office.

    I understand the subpoena cites no case law or statute. It has been filed without legal precedent. A hearing is scheduled for December 18 before the very same judge, Stephen Tatum - who has yet to schedule a hearing to decide whether Kline has enough evidence against PP to go to trial!

    LifeNews.com is reporting she has been "fired."

    I can't find the PP of IN press statement to read the wording to clarify if she indeed was terminated (a word more appropriate for PP than "fired," I think) or quit.

    IN PP, yes, where employees help sexual predators get away with raping minor girls, as Lila Rose exposed only yesterday. Since these gift certificates can be used for all services, rape felony cover-up must also be included.

    Read my previous post on this here.

    The story reported:

    "It's about basic health care. It's about annual exams, it's about pap smears, it's about birth control," said [IN PP CEO Betty] Cockrum. "I would be amazed if a dime of it goes toward an abortion."

    Why? What's wrong with using a Christmas gift certificate for abortion?

    The United States Coalition for Life announced today it is opening up its vast pro-life archives to the public.

    Established in 1972, the PA-based USCL is the oldest pro-life research organization in the United States. Its research files span more than 35 years and cover all areas of pro-life concerns, which includes population control, abortion, contraception, eugenics, sterilization, euthanasia, vital organ transplantation, homosexuality, classroom sex instruction, and fetal experimentation....

    Why I decided not to be an abortionist

    Yesterday, there was a long human interest story in the Washington Post describing how staunchly pro-abort Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine med student Lesley Wojick determined to abandon her aspiration to become an abortionist to instead be an anesthesiologist.

    Lesley's reasoning was honest, although, despite what she did and saw, she's still pro-abortion. 'Don't get that. But here's how she decided, after helping commit a 2nd trimester abortion:

    lesley.jpg

    "It was definitely gruesome," she said. "You could make out what a fetus could look like, tiny feet, lungs, but it didn't look like a person." She knew this abortion was an act that her friend Litty considered tantamount to murder. She herself expected to be very upset....

    But this was different. She didn't regard the fetus as a person yet. She said she was happy to help the woman: "I feel like I was giving [her] a new lease" on life....

    "Fractures within antiabortion movement helped doom ballot initiatives"

    This is just scandalous. Not only did pro-life actions against the SD abortion ban stop it, but they likely stopped all future efforts. Reported Medical News Today yesterday:

    house divided.jpg

    The defeat of abortion ballot measures across the country - such as SD's Initiated Measure 11 to ban virtually all abortions in the state - may have been the result of divisions among antiabortion groups, the Tennessean reports.

    Opposition to the measure in SD came from the antiabortion groups American Life League and SD Right to Life. The groups did not support the measure because of its exceptions to the abortion ban - cases of rape or incest or in narrowly defined instances "to preserve the health or life of the woman."...

    "Note to Jill Stanek: 'Tri' = 'Three'"

    feministing tri.jpg

    A couple days ago Kim H. at Feministing wrote a critique of my column last week, which I ignored frankly because it was foolish and not very original.

    Silliest of all was Kim's inability to grasp the meaning of my hyperbolic ("a figure of speech that is an exaggeration") use of the terminology "4th trimester" abortions in the 1st paragraph, to describe, as I explained in the 2nd paragraph, Barack Obama's support of "abandoning abortion survivors to die."

    Kim had to let me know, "'Tri' means three."

    I was disappointed Kim didn't appreciate my creative flair (although I must give credit to Fr. Frank Pavone for 1st coining the "4th trimester" term) but could only comprehend the dimension in front of her, the black and white on the screen.

    But now I'm getting heckled by some of Kim's like-nonminded friends who don't understand what I meant either, even though I was kind enough to explain it for crowd densities. For instance, Lauren A. of Michigan Technological University emailed me this morning to wonder, "What, pray tell, is a fourth trimester?"

    Planned Parenthood exec crashes press conference

    Yesterday afternoon the Alliance Defense Fund and CO citizen Mark Hotaling held a press conference at the State Capitol to announce an $18 million lawsuit against Gov. Bill Ritter, Planned Parenthood, Boulder Valley Women's Health Center, and the CO Dept. of Health and Environment for illegal taxpayer funding of abortion.

    shell game.jpgThe lawsuit came within days after plaintiffs learned the state had given $9 million to the 2 aforementioned abortion groups presumably for breast cancer screening, despite the fact the CO Constitution states no public funds can be used "directly or indirectly" for abortion.

    According to the press release, as recently as 2001 PP and BVWHC were stripped of over $1 million in taxpayer funding "after an independent audit found and PP recently admitted that it's impossible to separate their abortion activities from their taxpayer subsidies."

    But a surprise guest crashed the conference. When Leslie Durgan, Senior VP of PP of the Rocky Mountains and former mayor of Boulder, walked in, journalists recognized her and asked for comment. The cheeky child killer proceeded to take over the podium when the ADF attorney had finished his presentation. Her talking points fit nicely into the Rocky Mountain News article about the event.

    The state contends the funds allocated were federal, so it's not violating the Constitution. Durgan disputed the amount listed in the contracts altogether.

    Flaws found in liberal Catholic abortion study

    UPDATE, 10/31, 8:20a:Dr. New's longer analysis of the CACG study is available here.
    _______________

    During this election cycle a study on abortion released by Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has received plenty of attention from Democrats and Barack Obama supporters.

    cacg.jpgThe spin is that state pro-life laws only have a small impact on abortion rates, and increasing welfare expenditures is the superior way to reduce abortion.

    But in today's National Review Online, Professor Michael New of the University of AL and the Witherspoon Institute identified - surprise - errors in the study's methodology.

    New conducted a proper analysis of the exact same data used by CACG and found pro-life laws - specifically public funding restrictions and informed consent laws - are effective at lowering abortion rates.

    New also found the amount of money spent on welfare appears to have only a marginal impact on the incidence of abortion.

    Wichita, of course, has some of the serious highs and lows of the fight for reproductive freedom.

    The highs include Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation's most accomplished and dedicated ob-gyns and abortion providers. He performs difficult surgeries that many women are unable to access elsewhere. Women travel from throughout the country to see Dr. Tiller and his incredible and caring staff. Other highs are the members of NOW that carry forward the ideals of reproductive freedom, and the Maggot Punks, a group of mostly-young people who unmask and bark back at the virulent elements of the Religious Right....

    DHHS asked to investigate spike in Medicaid funded abortions for rape

    The following letter and chart were just publicly released.

    The Hyde Amendment restricts federal taxpayer funding for abortion under Medicaid only for cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. In FY2007 the number of funded abortions more than doubled - attributable to an increase in abortions paid for under the rape exception, entirely concentrated in 1 state, IL. Abortions funded under that exception in IL increased from 20 in FY2005 to 84 in FY2006 and 363 in FY2007

    Word is IL Department of Public Health officials are dragging their feet on the DHHS investigation, the cause for DHHS's delay in response to congressmen. IDPH is now saying it'll have the requested info in December - conveniently after the election. I have 2 guesses where the spike in "rape" abortions will be found: either among Planned Parenthood mills or Cook Co. Hospital. Click to enlarge:

    Ramona Oliver, communications director for EMILY's List... could not divulge the program's total cost but noted that the group spent between $7 million and $8 million in the last election cycle.

    Protesters force abortion mill out

    Kudos to Green, OH, pro-lifers for making life (pardon the pun) so unbearable for all associated with G&H Healthcare, a "nonsurgical abortion provider" according to Ohio.com, i.e., an RU-486 medical abortion mill, that it is leaving town.

    green 2.jpgThe trouble began earlier this summer when G&H made the mistake of setting up its chop-shop in an abortion-unfriendly city. Pro-lifers immediately started picketing the location and protesting to whomever would listen.

    At a July 10 Green City Council meeting, Mayor Dick Norton announced, according to Akron Ohio News, that while the city was legally helpless to oust the human grist mill...

    CO Springs Gazette: Pro-lifers rocked, all other protesters flopped at Democrat Convention

    I'm so proud of all the pro-life activists from around the country who sacrificed to protest and pray at the Democrat National Convention!

    An editorial in the CO Springs Gazette, August 28:

    Regardless of where one stands on the issue of abortion rights, one thing became perfectly clear in Denver this week: The election of Barack Obama stands to energize anti-abortion activists more than anything since Roe v. Wade, the 1972 Supreme Court decision that forced all states to legalize abortion.

    dnc truth truck road.jpg

    Activists throughout the city characterized Obama as the most pro-choice member of the Senate, because he voted against a bill that would require medical treatment for babies that survive late term abortions. Hillary Clinton voted for the bill.

    Far left activists who promised convention mayhem mostly made fools of themselves. They had no coherent message and couldn't even seem to organize chants and clever signs. When riot cops stared them down with rifles at the ready and "bring it on" body language, most of their gatherings had less energy than the average cemetery internment....

    Breaking news: Departing Dem delegates to get final view of gigantic pro-life protest sign

    Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgTonight, just as radical pro-abortion Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama begins his acceptance speech at Denver's Invesco Field, American Right To Life will display for the second and last time the world's largest protest sign.

    The location for the final unfurling of the 353,000 square-foot sign (530x666 feet) is still secret but will maximize the likelihood Obama and thousands of delegates will see the sign with their own eyes.

    Destroys
    uNborn
    Children

    Beginning tonight the sign will read:

    borN
    Children

    ... to expose Obama's repeated opposition as state senator to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, a bill to protect abortion survivors from being relegated to death. In fact, Obama took a leadership role in defeating the bill, the identical version of which passed overwhelmingly on the national level and was deemed not threatening to abortion by NARAL....

    Democrat National Convention: Day 4

    schumer 1.jpgNY Senator Chuck Schumer was just in the house. I went to get a photo of him and found myself sitting in on his conversation with the Daily Kos bloggers.

    A few points.

  • Schumer said he just learned big money conservative/
    Republican 527s will be aiming not at the presidential race but at senatorial races, which he said worries him. Of course.

  • Schumer thought McCain's Britney Spears/Paris Hilton ad was "very powerful", because it appealed to that segment of voters who are uncertain of Obama because "they don't know who he is".

  • Schumer said he personally scolded Lieberman that it would be "very wrong" if he began to support Republicans, i.e., join the McCain ticket.

  • Schumer still thinks Obama can win with 300 electoral votes, if he convinces uncertain voters he understands their problems and can "get things done" for them.

    Democrat National Convention: Day 2

    DNC day 2-4 i love pro-choice boys.jpgTo the right, an interesting t-shirt I spotted on the way to The Big Tent this morning.

    I cannot fathom why girls would knowingly hook up with boys who, they know ahead of time, would encourage them to abort their child after an oopsie. Pro-life boys, at least, would accept responsibility.

    And what difference does it ultimately make? Fathers have no say in the life or death of their preborn children anyway. Pro-life boys will lament the death of unique human offspring created together; pro-choice boys will not only celebrate finding perpetual free sex, but also excapism from fatherhood.

    Seems to me this girl is a walking advertisement for a good time at the DNC....

    Ratio of births to abortion in NYC - 4:3

    Here's the shocking opening line in this August 9 Crain's New York Business article:

    In most of the United States, 24 abortions are carried out for every 100 live births. In New York, 72 abortions occur for every 100 live births.

    nyc condom 4.jpgThis is the same New York that rejected federal abstinence funding last year as well as conducted a campaign to distribute 26 million condoms FREE. Workers even handed them out at subway stations.

    This is the same New York that offers free taxpayer-funded abortions to poor women and boasts 56 taxpayer-funded programs to distribute contraceptives free or cheap, according to the Crain's piece.

The site's pro-promiscuity agenda is truly degrading to human beings in general and children in particular.

    I reported last week that SD's only abortion mill, Planned Parenthood of Sioux Falls, apparently did not commit abortions last Monday, the first day a new law took effect forcing abortionists to tell mothers they planned to snuff a human life and may suffer psychological consequences.

    The status now? The Catholic News Agency reported yesterday:

    In an interview with CNA on Monday, July 28, Dr. [Allen] Unruh said there were still indications that no abortions were being performed at the Sioux Falls clinic.

    Students for Life sues Wayne State

    When last we left Detroit's Wayne State University in November 2007, Medical Students for Choice was hosting infamous late-term abortionist Alberto Hodari to speak words of wisdom.

    You remember that speech, secretly taped by Students for Life infiltrators who caught Hodari on video stating he had a "license to lie," among other gems.

    Then, of course, Hodari went on to achieve national recognition for being caught trashing aborted babies in a couple of his mill dumpsters.

    But I digress.

    The Detroit News reported July 24:

    A student group at Wayne State is suing the university, its top officials, and the student council, alleging the group was denied funding and the use of university facilities because of its anti-abortion stance.

    New Stanek WND column, "McCain and Viagra"

    WND%20logo.gif

    Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO, has been touted as one of John McCain's potential vice-presidential picks.

    But on July 7, Fiorina exposed herself as either a political airhead or saboteur by handing pro-aborts a wider opening to attack McCain than they could possibly have fantasized....

    Since early this year, NARAL has been sounding the alarm that its polling showed independents and pro-abortion Republicans have taken McCain's "maverick" reputation to mean he bucks his party's platform and is pro-abortion.

    But recently, pro-abortion groups have adopted the deceptive strategy of portraying McCain as anti-contraception.

    mccain fiorina.jpg

    Apparently, their follow-up polls showed McCain's simply being anti-abortion has not raised the dander of targeted voters, particularly in light of mounting evidence that Barack Obama is an abortion extremist....

    So Fiorina could not have played more perfectly into pro-abort hands.

    On July 10, a reporter asked McCain about Fiorina's mother of all verbal gifts to pro-aborts.

    This prompted "some of the most riveting campaign footage of the entire year so far," reported MSNBC's Rachel Maddow. You can view it in its entirety online here....

    Please stand with Phill Kline

    The KS primary election is in less than 3 weeks.

    The most watched and important race is for Johnson Co. District Attorney Republican nominee: Phill Kline vs. the establishment opponent who will drop the only criminal case in the U.S. against Planned Parenthood.

    kline 17.jpgAs many of you have followed, Kline filed 107 charges against Comprehensive Health of PP of KS and Mid-MO in October 2007.

    Since then, PP has wielded all its influence in a state run under pro-abortion Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to delay the evidence from ever getting before a jury. PP's plan: run out the clock on Kline's term in office. Kline has courageously fought against overwhelming odds to enforce the law against this $1 billion abortion cartel.

    Now, Kline needs the help of the nationwide pro-life community. There is no one else but us. The only way Kline can get his message of truth out is to go around the Kansas City Star with a final days, aggressive, multi-faceted ad campaign. (Recall KCS has pounded Kline since the day he took office, re-earning the "Maggie Award" PP gave it in 2006 for helping unseat Kline in the Attorney General's race.)...

    The Factor confronts Sebelius

    Yesterday I blogged on KS Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' chances of getting the VP nod from Barack Obama due to her scandalous support of Wichita late-term abortionist George Tiller, which includes hob-nobbing with him at the guv's mansion as well as hobbling numerous investigations.

    Would an Obama/Sebelius ticket prove too pro-abortion for the American people, I wondered?

    Last night The O'Reilly Factor featured a segment of various on-the-street interviews by Factor producer Jesse Watters (who always does a great job on these things) with governors attending a conference in Philadelphia over the weekend. Most of the governors confronted were from states that have not yet passed Jessica's Law, which would increase the criminal penalty for child rapists.

    But the last governor confronted was Sebelius, for her support of Tiller. Click on the link below to view the video. You will then have to click on the "Demanding answers: The Factor confronts lax governors" tab. Sebelius' portion starts at 3:45:

    Abortions rationed in Canada

    The utterly subjugated Canadian pro-life contingent is breaking through the silence barrier (what we'd see in the US without 1st Amendment rights) to protest its Parliament's July 1 announcement to present abortionist relic Henry Morgentaler Canada's highest public award, the Order of Canada.

    Liberals and the media are rallying around their hero. That's the backstory to this sad tidbit in a Canada.com pro-Morgentaler puff piece today - a vision of abortions to come if the US ever nationalizes health care:

    Until last February, an abortion cost $350 at the Montreal Morgentaler clinic, and the clinic did more than 2,000 a year, or 10 to 15 a day. But things changed in February, after the Quebec government finally agreed to cover the cost of fees in private abortion clinics.

    henry m.jpg

    It had always covered the doctor's fee, but it drew the line there. Now, Quebec is one of seven provinces in Canada where the full cost of abortions in public hospitals, as well as private facilities, is covered.

    "Now that abortions in private clinics are free, a lot of women who couldn't afford the $350 before are now calling us," [clinic manager France] Desilets said. "Calls have quadrupled since February."...

    Relevant magazine must certainly be enjoying its 15 minutes. The backlash continues re: statements Obama made in a July 1 interview with the liberal Christian publication. I've previously dissected his "mental distress" and "Born Alive" comments, but Obama touched on 2 other topics that has pro-aborts fuming: partial birth abortion and abstinence education. On pba he said:

    I have repeatedly said that I think it's entirely appropriate for states to restrict or even prohibit late-term abortions as long as there is a strict, well-defined exception for the health of the mother.

    Obama must have repeatedly said that only to the pandering pro-abort in the mirror, because stalwarts were taken aback. They considered Obama's comment a direct assault on partial birth abortion.

    Sanger was clearly hostile to the Catholic Church. Her talking points were remarkably similar to her Planned Parenthood progeny. She saw pregnancy prevention and population control as the cure for problems such as world hunger. She disagreed that birth control would lead to promiscuity.

    The question is, 50 years later, where is any proof Sanger was right? Isn't there, rather, overwhelming proof she was wrong?

    The Philip Morris cigarette pitches... wow, now those dated this piece more than anything else. Click on graphic below to link to video:

    Interestingly, Sanger refused to call infidelity or murder sin but strongly condemned as sin bearing sick children or bringing children into problematic homes, i.e., eugenics. When Wallace asked Sanger if she believed in sin...

    Denver Planned Parenthood "on budget"?

    My post earlier today about the newly opened Denver Planned Parenthood referred to PP CEO Leslie Durgin who stated the building was "on budget".

    Wait, not so fast, unless "on budget" means a 50% cost overrun.

    Projected budget when this story first broke last August:

    Denver "Fort Knox" Planned Parenthood opens; protests spread

    9News.com today called the newly opened Denver Planned Parenthood "Fort Knox," referring to its $300k security system. Of course, the real Fort Knox is tightly protected because of all the gold it stores, a fitting analogy to PP all the way around.

    Denver PP CEO Leslie Durgin said the new abortion big-box, at 50k sq. ft. -- more than double the previous U.S. PP big-box record holder in Aurora, IL, at 22k sq. ft. -- was completed three months ahead of schedule and within budget.

    Certainly, the schedule and budget were made generous, due to anticipated pro-life aggravators. Amplified by the added impetus for speedy construction to quell the pickets (which aren't going to stop, as promised) and negative PR, and that's not saying anything.

    ARTL crashes NRLC's party

    Last year members of CO Right to Life openly challenged National Right to Life's support (among others) of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban by taking out newspaper ads and threatening a class action lawsuit.

    The disagreement culminated in CRTL hosting a hostile hospitality suite at the 2007 NRLC convention and being ousted as an affiliate.

    That led to the formation of American Right to Life, which is now focused on establishing personhood at conception through state and federal legislative efforts.

    At the just held NRLC convention, ARTL surprised everyone by hosting a hospitality suite at the Crystal City Hyatt where NRLC was meeting. This info comes from ARTL, reporting about its 1st day, July 3. The controversy didn't make LifeNews.com. Also didn't see any MSM coverage, although MSM surely had no clue what was going on....

    artl nrlc 4.jpg

    Scores of NRTL conventioneers are streaming into the ARTL suites to enjoy good food and drink, and to consider the moral argument for the personhood strategy toward ending "legalized" child killing....

    The Hyatt told ARTL that we could place a poster advertisement for our hospitality suite on a tripod in their lobby inviting folks to our Regency Suite to celebrate the "personhood amendment on CO's November ballot!" Four things happened immediately after Hyatt personnel placed our poster in their lobby....

    Yesterday pro-lifers held protests not only at the DC annual meeting site but at NEA meetings across the country. The goal, according to a statement by Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, an organization of young people born after abortion was legalized on January 22, 1973: "to persuade the NEA... leadership to repeal its abortion-related resolutions and policies and to become neutral on abortion."

    The Alfred Kinsey cover-up

    kinsey 2.jpgSex researcher Alfred Kinsey is credited with "revolutionizing" American sexual thought and practices in the 1950s and 60s, including normalization of homosexuality, porn, pedophilia, and abortion.

    In reality, Kinsey was a pedophiliac homosexual sado-mashocist who likely died of self-inflicted wounds at age 62. His "ground-breaking" books, The Kinsey Reports contained data obtained from pedophiliacs, which he did not report.

    Dr. Judith Reisman has been at the forefront of exposing Kinsey for years. Yesterday she released a 2-part YouTube video, The Kinsey Coverup.

    Planned Parenthood: "The Lens Crafters of family planning"

    American Life League has issued its latest ALL Report. This one launches from the June 23 Wall Street Journal front page story, "Planned Parenthood hits suburbia," about PP's attempt to rebrand and sell upscale abortions.

    The report includes Chicago PP CEO Steve Trombley's most recent infamous line....

    Planned Parenthood subsidy stripped from War Supplemental bill

    prostitute food.jpgI've written before (here and here) about the Democrats' attempt to reinstate taxpayer subsidies of college and Planned Parenthood birth control pills in the War Supplemental Appropriations bill.

    Recall PP CEO Cecile Richards famously lamented that without this subsidy's restoration, college women would have to choose between sex and food, i.e., buy birth control pills or eat.

    Well, I guess now we'll see what their priority is. And maybe they'll get their free-sex partners to kick in a little to support the habit. Or would that make them feel too much like prostitutes?

    WSJ blog continues the Planned Parenthood discussion; quotes Stanek

    This is Part III of a 3 part series on today's Wall Street Journal article, "Planned Parenthood hits suburbia."

    See Part I here and Part II here.

    Reporter Stephanie Simon accompanied her piece with a blog post at WSJ's Front Lines. In it she quoted me from a conversation we had on PP's expansion a couple months ago:

    After decades of quiet expansion through a network of small, often somewhat shabby clinics, PP is poised to make a splash.

    wsj pp aurora.jpg

    With annual revenues topping $1 billion last year, the nonprofit has gone on a building spree, laying out a network of upscale suburban clinics designed to feed into large regional health centers.

    PP's strategy for growth has emboldened its perennial foes in the antiabortion community. Rep. Mike Pence... plans to push legislation this summer to end federal funding of PP. Conservative activists are chiming in, arguing that the group has proved it can do fine without tax dollars.

    "They're a magnificent fundraising machine. They really are," said Jill Stanek, an antiabortion blogger. "I would think everyday people on the street would stop and think, "Why are we funding this group?'"...

    Front page WSJ: Planned Parenthood rebrands

    A front page story by Stephanie Simon in today's Wall Street Journal focused on Planned Parenthood's nationwide expansion strategy:

    Flush with cash, Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide are aggressively expanding their reach, seeking to woo more affluent patients with a network of suburban clinics and huge new health centers that project a decidedly upscale image.

    pp next generation.jpgI've reported on this for awhile (here and here).

    The article also spotlighted PP's abortion feeders, its "Expresses":

    PP has also opened more than two dozen quick-service "express centers," many in suburban shopping malls. Some sell jewelry, candles, books and T-shirts, along with contraception.

    "It is indeed a new look...a new branding, if you will," said Leslie Durgin, a senior vice president at PP of the Rocky Mountains.

    NARAL's "balanced" poll on McCain/Obama

    From U.S. News & World Report yesterday:

    The nation's largest abortion-rights group today released a poll of likely women voters in 12 battleground states that suggests... John McCain could lose the support of significant numbers of independent and pro-choice Republican women - if they are educated about the AZ senator's antiabortion voting record.

    Ok, underlined are your first clues this article is biased, in fact, just a reworking of the NARAL press release.

    spin spin.jpgFor instance, the USN reporter merely reordered NARAL's "McCain's votes against birth control access" to "his votes to limit access to birth control," which is pure spin. McCain opposed forcing insurance companies, such as those owned by Catholics, to fund contraception against their moral beliefs. As usual, so much for choice....

    EMILY's List has learned to laugh

    The pro-abortion women's PAC EMILY's List has learned through experience how to put on a happy face in the aftermath of huge losses.

    In 2002 17 of EMILY's 21 endorsed candidates lost in the national election.

    In 2004 10 of EMILY's 13 endorsed candidates lost in the national election.

    In 2006 16 of EMILY's 18 endorsed candidates lost in the national election.

    Now, the group's leadership has apparently gone hysterical after seeing its hard-fought presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lose to Barack Obama. Reported the Washington Independent on June 11:

    emily history.jpg

    Ellen Moran began to laugh. This wasn't a snicker or a snort, but a full-throttled laugh that caused Moran to jerk her head back toward the ceiling as she contemplated the question before her. It was the early afternoon of June 6 and the 42-year-old executive director of EMILY's List had just been asked whether she believed if the political group could have done anything differently during the presidential run of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, in which the political group played an integral part....

    ACLU fundraises $335 mil

    A friend sending me an article on the ACLU's $335 fundraising effort included this thought:

    In an Obama administration with a Democrat-controlled Congress, pro-life efforts would likely gravitate to "outside the beltway" activities, i.e., activities at the state level.

    Our enemies seem to have anticipated that. They are gearing up, as the article below documents. Are pro-life efforts and plans also gearing up at the state level?

    Planned Parenthood's obscene profits

    Michelle Malkin's column yesterday, Planned Parenthood's obscene profits, began with this intro on her blog:

    My syndicated column this week turns the spotlight on the nefarious business practices of the government-funded, billion-dollar Planned Parenthood empire. Congress has interrogated banking, energy, tobacco, and oil execs-treating them like serial killers before the cameras. When will they go after a corrupt industry that has real blood on its hands?

    pence.jpg

    On a related front, pro-life groups are pushing Bush to de-fund the abortion industry. "Centrist" Republicans are balking. Conservative GOP Rep. Mike Pence, leading the effort to cut the abortion subsidies, is "befuddled" by the White House's reticence on the issue. Me, I'm no longer befuddled by Beltway GOP leaders unwillingness to lead on basic conservative issues. It's the fecklessness we deserve.

    How not to hold a Planned Parenthood fundraiser

    On May 28, Denver pro-abort millionaires Joris and Regina Brinkerhoff planned an extravagent $275-a-plate fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains at their $5 million home at 1681 E. Cedar Ave., with its beautiful backyard view of the Denver Country Club.

    I'm told the night was gorgeous - as was the location - for pro-lifers to help the Brinkerhoffs educate and entertain their guests.

    Planned Parenthood exec joins children's museum

    Well, here's a major career 180 if I ever saw one. From News-Press.com:

    Myra Williams has joined the Children's Museum of Naples [FL] as development director.

    Williams brings more than 11 years of fundraising experience to her new position and is responsible for planning, developing and maintaining a comprehensive fundraising program.

    For the past seven years, she served as the director of development for Planned Parenthood of Collier County Inc.

    At first I thought this must be a human natural history museum, preserving for posterity the memory these small endangered creatures. In some countries, like Russia, they're all but extinct.

    But no...

    chidlren's museum.jpg

    The facility isn't scheduled to open until Spring 2009, and it has hired the equivalent of a Nazi prison guard to raise funds for a Holocaust museum. Interesting that the exterior is Noah-themed, a reminder that only a few survive?

    The board has to be stocked with pro-aborts. Otherwise, there is just no way they would have hired Williams. So this is a liberal feel good endeavor to assuage guilt or build resumes. When it opens, watch for liberal doctrine spread throughout.

    But hey, they've picked a fundraiser who has learned from the best.

    NARAL's endorsement of Obama causes "uproar"

    nyt uproar.jpg

    I wrote in February that pro-aborts were raucously split in support of Clinton vs. Obama for president.

    Ideologues like NOW (feminists 1st, abortion zealots 2nd) support Clinton. Hillary is a woman, and the presidency is their grail.

    Pragmatics (abortion zeal and greed tied for 1st) support Obama. They expect him to do more to help the industry through government handouts, laws, and presidentially-overseen agencies.

    So the NARAL board's May 14 announcement to endorse Obama is no surprise. The abortion industry funds NARAL. It's no dummy.

    And the protest by feminist groups like EMILY's List is no surprise, nor defections of pocket NARAL affiliates, particularly NY, likely headed by rabid feminists.

    Messianic Obama

    The Obama campaign is mailing out the flyer below (see backside on page 2) in front of next week's KY primary.

    To columnist David Broder's request for an explanation of its purpose, the Obama campaign responded via email (emphasis mine):

    These fliers are part of the Obama campaign's sincere effort to communicate the values of Senator Obama's own Christian faith and the hope that people of all faiths and moral backgrounds will come together to address the needs of the "least of these" in our nation and in our world....

    "Sincere"? "Values"? "Christian faith"? Obama's increasing gall is increasingly galling me.

    "Least of these"? I'd like Obama's definition. I have one. How about live aborted babies left to die in hospital soiled utility rooms? No, the campaign won't like that one. How about late-term babies getting stabbed in the back of the head and their brains sucked out? No, it won't like that one either. How about 11-year-old girls being raped by their step-fathers? Ixnay. Oh, I give up.

    And the line used to be "Faith, hope, and charity," btw. Now Obama's even trying to rewrite the Bible. Hide the 10 Commandments, quick.

    But these 2 pathetic Hollywood liberals? It's beyond abnormal for a woman who is both mother and grandmother to promote mothers killing their own children while embracing a daughter spared from her own demise thanks only to timing and circumstance.

    Happy Mother's Day from Planned Parenthood

    "Happy Mother's Day" greetings from Planned Parenthood are as grotesque as its "Choice on Earth" Christmas greetings.

    Today PP CEO Cecile Richards issued an email plea for $ under the guise of a Mother's Day greeting and using her dead mother and daughter as props.

    This pathetic woman is so psychologically and emotionally invested in abortion she has no semblance of a conscience left. If and when she has grandchildren, I'm sure she'll use them, too.

    Note the numerous purposeful times she - or, rather, PP's pr firm - invokes the words "mother," "daughter," and "grandmother."

    "Legacy"? What legacy? Pro-aborts can leave no legacy, another reason we can undoubtedly know our side will eventually win - through attrition.

    Fox spotlights Planned Parenthood racism

    I just uploaded 2 recent segments to YouTube on Fox spotlighting Planned Parenthood's racism: accepting donations specifically to abort black babies.

    Laura Ingraham on The O'Reilly Factor, April 25, 2008...

    Brit Hume, April 24, 2008...


    Last week's press conference by black leaders against Planned Parenthood

    As an aside, Day Gardner, who you'll see speak in the video below and who is president of National Black Pro-Life Union, will appear tonight on Glenn Beck's t.v. show. He has invited her to discuss the Jeremiah Wright issue, and she's going to try to steer the conversation to Wright's promotion of abortion. Beck can be seen at 7p and 9p EST on Headline News.

    "We're here to talk about race, because Planned Parenthood has made abortion about race" ~ great line by Rev. Clenard Childress of BlackGenocide.org at last week's press conference in D.C. by black leaders calling on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.

    Surprisingly, the press conference got lots of good press. Great sign. Here are clips:


    AuschWeitz

    "AuschWeitz," clever. That's what pro-lifers have nicknamed the upscale Anschutz residential/store building project in a Denver suburb being constructed by Weitz Company.

    You remember Weitz, the general contractor building Planned Parenthood's 50,000 sq. ft. mega-abortion mill in Denver.

    Pro-lifers warned Weitz in January to bail on the PP project or reap the consequences of management home and business picketing.

    Weitz didn't, so pro-lifers launched the Collaborators Project, which has proven so successful anti-1st Amendment lawmakers introduced legislation to limit home pickets that looks likely to pass.

    Meanwhile, the pickets go on, no matter the attempts to stifle. Now, the Anschutz project has covered Weitz's name, not good for PR:

    weitz coverup.jpg

    And the pickets have borne fruit. Will Duffy, head of the Collaborators Project, reported in an email update that pro-lifers in Portland, OR, have joined up to stop a PP mill from being built in the middle of a black neighborhood. And Precious Children of Portland just announced Walsh Construction has pulled from that project as general contractor. Good for Walsh.

    Meanwhile, back in CO, Will reported that the 2nd security firm PP hired quit after only 4 days on the job, thanks to a home picket.

    Hannity's America: Planned Parenthood's rape cover-up

    Sunday night Hannity's America ran another exposé on Planned Parenthood.

    The segment began by playing the 2nd of Lila Rose's audiotapes showing PP would accept money to abort black babies.

    But the bulk of the story was about an Ohio PP that aborted a 14-year-old girl who had been impregnated by her 21-year-old soccer coach.

    OH has a parental consent law, but PP never contacted this girl's parents, who were interviewed for the story. The girl, who said her rapist coerced her to abort, gave PP the man's phone number for consent.

    The family now has hired a high-powered attorney and are suing the PP in a case to be heard by the OH Supreme Court. PP is also being charged with failing to report suspected child abuse. PP is fighting release of the girl's medical records, of course.

    National Right to Life clamps down

    nrlc.gifOn April 5 the National Right to Life Committee's board of directors passed this resolution in response to GA Right to Life's endorsement of Mike Huckabee for president rather than NRLC's choice, Fred Thompson, and Iowa RTL's decision to go neutral:

    BE IT RESOLVED that it is the policy and a goal and purpose of National Right to Life that no state affiliate, member or alternate of the National Right to Life Board of Directors endorse or support any candidate for President of the United States other than a candidate endorsed or supported by National Right to Life.

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that if National Right to Life supports or endorses a candidate for President of the United States, then it is the policy and a goal and purpose of National Right to Life that no state affiliate, member or alternate of the National Right to Life Board of Directors publicly oppose or voice neutrality or non-support for that candidate.

    NRLC does good work, to be sure. But I've noted before the same leaders have been in position far too long - decades - which IMO has led to a Beltway rather than grassroots mentality and a DC power rush that leads them to make some decisions not for the good of the organization or the pro-life movement but for the good of the ones in control.

    This was one of those decisions....

    Rockford lawsuit for failure to protect pro-lifers

    I posted photos April 4 of hanging rubber chickens and such at the very creepy Northern Illinois Women's Center abortion mill in Rockford, IL.

    I said I would blog on a lawsuit pro-lifers have filed when they were able to post a video substantiating their case. That day has come.

    Pro-lifers are suing the City of Rockford for removing their pro-life message from a bus bench and also for failing to protect them as they protested at NIWC. Also included in the suit are Wayne Webster, the building's owner, and a neighbor, Keith Sterkeson.

    Here is video of Sterkeson repeatedly calling a pro-lifer the n-word, throwing in the f-bomb for good measure. He also bizarrely yells kudos to an admitted "mom" for aborting, adding, "You're doing the right thing, and God will honor you!" as if that comment would bring her comfort?

    Here's a photo Sterkeson pretending to take aim at pro-lifers during the same incident...

    Planned Parenthood claims pro-life view turns off women

    by Steven Ertelt

    Planned Parenthood continues to do everything possible to protect its abortion income -- including claiming a pro-life view is a turnoff for women voters.

    Yet polling data shows 64 percent of women voters don't want a candidate who voted against the partial-birth abortion ban; 68 percent don't want a candidate who supports taxpayer-funded abortion; and 73 percent don't want a candidate who opposes parental involvement.

    Who holds those kinds of radical pro-abortion positions? Oh yeah -- Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

    With data like that, it's no wonder Bush had a 9 percent advantage over Kerry among voters who said abortion was important and won single issue abortion voters 3-1.

    Obama and Clinton have a long way to go to prove to voters they're not the radicals they really are -- and with Obama's repeated attempts to block the "live birth abortion" bill in Illinois, he can't been seen as anything but an extremist.

    Why so many late-term abortions in Kansas?

    Wichita late-term abortionist George Tiller is in the news again.

    Highlights from an article from the Kansas City Star:

    But according to attorneys representing the grand jury and the judges overseeing it, state law gives grand juries broad powers to seek whatever information they deem relevant. They said that Tiller can challenge any evidence if he faces a prosecution....

    Fr. Frank Pavone explains suction and dismemberment abortions

    by Bethany Kerr

    I received an email today informing me of these two videos, explaining the processes of dismemberment abortion and suction abortion.

    Frank Pavone does a terrific job explaining the processes involved in these abortion processes, in a clear and straightforward manner I think everyone can understand.

    I hope that these videos will be beneficial to viewers. If you find them helpful, please forward them to your friends, and family.

    Fence removed from vacant lot across from Planned Parenthood Aurora

    by Bethany Kerr:

    I was just notified by email that the chain link fence around the area of the vacant lot owned by Safeway/Dominicks (across from Planned Parenthood Aurora), has been removed.

    The fence went up in October, after PP launched a nationwide effort to harrass Dominicks with emails complaining about pro-life presence on their property.

    It was supposed to be removed on December 10, 2007, however, it was not until yesterday.

    We do not know whether they will be building a new permanent fence or whether they will leave the fence down... but what we do know is that the fence's presence did absolutely NOTHING to hinder pro-life efforts.

    See a few of Jill's previous articles on the chain link fence below:

    Saline abortions, obsolete?

    by Valerie Jane

    We've had many discussions on this blog about saline abortions. Abortion proponents claim saline abortions are not committed anymore, so our pictures of them are obsolete or faked.

    But according to the CDC in 2004, there were 4,574 saline abortions for 43 out of 52 reporting area's. Saline abortions took place in approximately 1% of abortions since 1989; 2% of abortions from 1983 - 1988; and that it has been taking place under 3% of all abortions since 1981.

    All of that sounds low, right?

    Take a look at this:

    1995 - 6,000 (approx) saline abortions
    2000 - 3,400 (approx) saline abortions
    2002 - 6,800 (approx) saline abortions
    2003 - 7,600 (approx) saline abortions
    2004 - 4,500 (approx) saline abortions

    When it is put in numbers it makes a bit of difference, doesn't it? Now let's break it down further.

    In 2004 there were:

    375 saline abortions every month
    87 saline abortions every week
    12 saline abortions every day

    That doesn't sound like something that is never done anymore does it?

    ****

    Note: The medical term for this procedure is "Intrauterine Instillation abortion" The chemicals used can be consisting of either saline, urea or prostaglandin.

    Mexico City may have seen 8 women die from legal abortions

    by Steven Ertelt

    It's no surprise when the American media fails to cover the deaths of women from legal abortions. Now, it appears the same thing is happening in Mexico.

    From the story:

    Jorge Serrano Limón of the Mexican National Pro-Life (Provida) Committee says he has information showing several deaths: "We have the information, dates, and hospitals where they died" even though "the authorities will only recognize the underage girl who died in Balbuena Hospital."

    Mexico City's leading newspaper already confirmed one death. How long will it take for them to report on the rest?

    Show me the money

    by Valerie Ryan

    A Miami Heraldstory is about abortionists being legally required to show a women an ultrasound picture if she wants to see it. It is not required otherwise:

    "Rep. Joyce Cusack, a Democrat... noted that not every abortion clinic has ultrasound equipment and those that do will have to charge patients more to offer the procedures.

    Opponents of the measure said the procedure could cost a woman as much as $700, while supporters said the cost would likely be less than $100."

    What I find interesting is that crisis pregnancy centers manage to do them for free.

    Another thought, how do these people verify gestational age, without the ultrasound, to make sure the safest procedure is being performed?

    No, it's not Halloween, it's an abortion mill

    What week would be complete these days without news of the latest abortion mill freak show?

    Today's featured mill is the Northern Illinois Women's Center, in Rockford.

    I'll have more to say on this chop shop when our side works out the technical glitches with a video they're trying to upload in conjunction with the lawsuit they just filed against the City of Rockford for discrimination and against the mill owners for harrassment, which the video shows.

    For now, enjoy these photos of the mill taken by pro-lifers.

    Let me introduce the photos by explaining why some of the brick and windows are different. This is a 2-building complex, an old school. I've taken a Google photo to provide context, courtesy of Google maps:

    Breaking News: UCLA student group releases 2nd video exposing Planned Parenthood's racism

    Thumbnail image for breaking.jpg5 weeks ago the UCLA student group The Advocate released a blockbuster video exposing Planned Parenthoods in various states accepting bucks specifically to abort black babies.

    One of those PPs later issued a statement that acceptance of this $ was a 'serious mistake."

    Well here are several more "serious mistakes." Today The Advocate released a 2nd video (in what it called "a series") exposing more PPs of the same Sangeresque genocidal money lust. These videos are so well done. Take a look:

    Hodari's babies

    We've talked much the last couple weeks about MI late-term abortionist Alberto Hodari, in the news for tossing aborted babies and medical records into his dumpsters. Read my Hodari archives here.

    But just what does an abortionist do with all the money s/he makes from aborting poor mothers in crisis?

    Pro-lifer Judy Papa has sidewalk counseled at Hodari's Flint, MI, pole barn abortion mill for years and sent photos of Hodari's hobby, classic car collecting. He even takes them to shows.

    Where does Hodari keep his babies? Inside the mill, at the service entrance.

    These first photos are of Hodari leaving the mill in his favorite car. He mentioned it during his infamous talk at Wayne State U last November...

    Planned Parenthood to spend $10 mil on election? Puleeze

    Much has been made of Planned Parenthood's Big Annoucement that it plans to spend $10 million on the 2008 elections. ABC News has a story on it today:

    The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is promising to spend $10 million this election cycle - three times more than the organization has spent in any previous election.

    Look, making these Big Announcements to attract friends and scare enemies is PP's modus operandi. Words, words. It's all a scam. PP is just going for the media splash. That's its endgame here.

    PP doesn't expect anyone to check back after its media splashes. Well here's 1 person who does.

    Does the following sound familiar? In 2002, our old friend Steve Trombley and Planned Parenthood of Chicago promised to spend $1 million in the IL governor's race, as quoted by Crain's Chicago Business, June 24, 2002 (click to enlarge):

    And this is what PP actually spent, according to the IL State Board of Elections website...

    Update on FL Planned Parenthood closures

    American Life League's Planned Parenthood watchdog arm STOPP added this in an email alert yesterday:

    There is much confusion about the status of Planned Parenthood clinics in Boca Raton, FL and the surrounding areas. According to various reports, PP is scrambling as the local affiliate, Planned Parenthood of South Palm Beach and Broward Counties, is having severe financial difficulties....

    VA to continue funding Planned Parenthood

    This update is overdue, but I want to close the loop on this topic for those who hadn't heard.

    On March 3 I reported the VA Senate narrowly voted to cut off state funding to Planned Parenthood. I warned at the time this would not likely survive pro-abort Gov. Timothy Kaine's line-item veto.

    close.jpgWell, it didn't get that far. Since the amendment was not in the House approved budget, it was up for debate in the secret General Assembly conference that wrangled out differences between the 2 chambers' approved budgets.

    The Richmond-Times Dispatch reported March 15 that PP funding ($200k) was restored in the final budget.

    On the bright side, our side at least tried. Good for them. Their effort can be added to the nationwide pressure mounting against PP. Maybe next year.

    My smear campaign to capsize Obama

    dana 2.jpgIn her RH Reality Check column, "When Obama voted 'no,'" Dana Goldstein wrote yesterday:

    ... Yes, Obama voted "present" instead of "no" [as state senator] on 7 bills that would have limited women's reproductive rights....

    But while the Democratic campaigns and women's organizations quibbled over which 100% pro-choice Senator, Obama or Hillary Clinton, would be... better... many choice advocates missed what was percolating under the radar... a conservative smear campaign against Obama's... support for reproductive freedom.

    The anti-choice anti-Obama strategy is based on Obama's clear "no" votes on the "IL Born Alive Infant Protection Act".... Leading anti-choice blogger Jill Stanek, who testified in the IL state Senate on behalf of the bill, has played a key role in disseminating this anti-Obama argument in the right-wing blogosphere.

    Finally, a little credit! Thank you, Dana.

    But from that splendid launch, Dana's column fizzled, sad to say....

    But when it's Planned Parenthood, MSM's eyes avert.

    In this case, national PP shut down its FL Planned Parenthood of South Palm Beach and Broward Counties affiliate about 2-1/2 weeks ago, according to the March 21 Sun Sentinel.

    This meant closing 5 clinics in Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Oakland Park, Pembroke Pines, and Tamarac to make "necessary service upgrades," quoting a PP prepared statement provided to the SS.

    But former board members and a worker who has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit told SS of deeper problems...

    Church hosts "Pro-choice Lobby Day"

    Yesterday Denver's Central Presbyterian Church hosted the state capital's annual "Pro-choice Lobby Day."

    Pro-lifers from the Collaborator's Project, a group launched to stop Planned Parenthood from building a 50,000 sq. ft. mega-mill in the Mile High City, showed up to remind lobbyists exactly what they were supporting.

    Reported organizer Will Duffy in an email alert, "The front parking meter opened up as soon as the protest started. Perfect place for the truth truck, courtesy of The Weitz Company, of course."

    lobby 3.jpg

    Weitz is PP's general contractor. Duffy et al have been picketing homes of senior management for months.

    Duffy reported getting many signatures from passersby for CO's personhood ballot initiative, making double good use of valuable pro-life time.

    Duffy concluded that lobby day participants got the distinct message, "No child killing with tranquility!" Great work.

    A Hodari save born this week

She told me last night, "It's a day I'll never forget."

    Taffiney and her husband were having a hard time making ends meet with 3 children and didn't think they could afford another. Neither had been involved in abortion before but thought there was no other way out of their bind.

    On A-Day they began washing clothes at a nearby laundromat, and then Taffiney went ahead of her husband to Hodari's mill to start the paperwork....

    Hodari parades new trash cans

    Detroit Free Press today updated us on late-term abortionist and trash freer Alberto Hodari.

    And the news is very exciting. I hope you're sitting down:

    The owner of a Lathrup Village clinic accused of improperly disposing of medical waste said Tuesday that he's putting biohazard bags in every examination room to ensure that materials don't end up in regular trash bins again....

    Thumbnail image for biohazard2.jpg

    At his clinic in Lathrup Village... Hodari showed off eight new trash cans with red biohazard bags for hazardous materials. He has also purchased shredders for documents with patient information.

    What, did he call a press conference?

    So before now there were not biohazard bags in every "examination room," i.e., operating room in which to toss "materials," i.e., aborted babies?

    What an idiot. The reporter, too....

    Convicted felon abortionist is Chicago Public School principal

    I received this email yesterday from an 8th grader at Lavizzo Elementary School in Chicago:

    I read your article on Dr. Bickham. Well our students including teachers aren't comfortable with being around him and we want help. If he has this kind of back ground he shouldn't be able to work in this type of organization because you'll never know what he will try to do.....

    We want to go on strike and have the news up at our school because this is very disturbing news.

    I followed up by speaking by phone with the student.

    Long story short: It's true. Abortionist and principal Arnold Bickham (pictured right from school website) are one and the same.

    Today's Hodari trash talk: "Victims"

    FYI, I have established a Hodari archive off all postings and documents.

    Turns out late-term MI abortionist Alberto Hodari threw everything in his dumpster but the kitchen sink, which he likely uses to "sterilize" instruments.

    Hodari's garbage today reveals a pregnant mother can be "victim of failed birth control" or "victim of no birth control." From a questionnaire pulled from his trash:

    Victim%201.jpg

    Hodari aborts many victims of no birth control. Below I have snipped sections from every form I've seen when that question was answered. Shockingly, all but one aborting mom had sex with no protection. The lone victim of failed birth control used the fabulously successful condom.....

    "Lord abortion"

    Here's a song just posted on YouTube, "Lord Abortion," by the band Cradle of Filth. Don't look up the lyrics unless you want to be shocked and repulsed. They're X-rated. I couldn't post this if the words were intelligible. (WARNING: Near the end, you can pick up a couple of profanities.)

    This could be a parody of the worst of the heavy metal bands. But perhaps the name of the song gave me a different take. The video is demonic. It is horrible. It provides a realistic visual and guttural sense of the depravity of abortion, very disturbing.

    Dr. "Parental Consent?" Hodari

    Michigan law requires a girl under 18 to bring written permission from 1 parent or written permission from the court to her abortionist.

    In the 200+ medical records pro-lifers recovered from late-term abortionist Alberto Hodari's trash over the course of 4 Saturdays at 3 of his 6 mills, there was not 1 permission waiver from either parent or judge.

    Did Hodari get permission before aborting this girl, who was procuring a 2nd trimester abortion from him and whose record was 1 of those found? (VTP means Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy; more on these loans soon.) Click to enlarge:

    UPDATE, 12p: I have created a "Hodari" archive link, which you can see scrolling down on the right side of the home page. All Hodari articles will be available there.

    Video of abortionist Hodari's trash

    Dr. Monica Miller shot video of the trash as they were removing it from MI abortionist Alberto Hodari's dumpster, a story I have been chronicling for 3 days now (read here and here).

    This 6-minute video is very disturbing. The last 2-1/2 minutes show the babies.

    I am horrified that so-called medical professionals would throw needles, drugs, and bloody biohazardous waste in the neighborhood trash, never mind the poor mutilated babies. And careless disregard for medical records is a federal offense.

    These combined actions must certainly have been criminal. Hodari's mills should be immediately shut down, and he should be thrown in jail.

    Well, Alberto is lying to authorities now.

    Monica said she would get me photos and a copy of her police report tomorrow.

    Monica has been a pro-life activist since the 80s and has recovered whole aborted babies from dumpsters. I can't believe an abortionist would still be so stupid....

    This allegedly occurred from the late 1990s to 2004 when the CA legislature incredibly changed refund rules to let PP overcharge the state legally.

    Leap year abortions

    My former employer, Christ Hospital, called in news crews to showcase its party for babies born on Leap Year, February 29. These are special babies who will only get to celebrate their actual birthday once every 4 years.

    Christ Hospital execs say it aborts far fewer than back in the day when I worked there. But its policy still states it will abort for life or health of the mother, fatal fetal anomalies, rape or incest, and "selective reduction" in the case of multiples. So who really knows what is going on there until the hospital changes its policy to abortion for life of the mother only.

    Thus, it is entirely possible that while cameras focused on babies born at Christ Hospital on Leap Year, staff were quietly committing Leap Year abortions off-camera nearby.

    Condom Man MIA

    unavailable%202.jpgI previously reported a UCLA pro-life student group named The Advocate had posted their Condom Man exposé on YouTube. It showed UCLA "health center" faculty enabling a planned boat orgy by stocking a student with enough condoms to raise the craft if it were sinking.

    John Jansen of Pro-Life Action League alerted me a little while ago that the video has been disabled.

    Sure enough, yes, which The Advocate's website confirmed.

    I called Lila Rose, The Advocate's leader, who explained, "We handed copies of our winter issue directly to the vice chancellor and other officials under the chancellor's office. My suspicion is they contacted YouTube because our video reflected very poorly on them."

    Lila said she wasn't sure yet how The Advocate would respond.

    But I know our young upstarts will. Stay tuned.

    New Planned Parenthood slogans

    Moderator Bethany just forwarded me these Planned Parenthood slogans she found on the Victoria Taft blog.

    Bethany wondered if these were jokes. I quickly responded, "Oh, yeah," but on 2nd glance I wondered.

    These are jokes, right?

    UPDATE, 9:20a: Per The Dawn Patrol via Michelle Malkin, these are real! They have got to be kidding. Dawn posts more PP ads from around the world.

    Phill Kline slams Slowhand and Crackbrain

    slowhand4.jpgI said yesterday there may be rats scurrying about the grand jury investigating Planned Parenthood of KS and MO for multiple accusations of illegal activity.

    Those rats would be Democrat judge Kevin Moriarty and his appointed special counsel supposedly helping the grand jury, Larry McClain, hereafter known as Slowhand and Crackbrain.

    I said PP's game plan is to run out the grand jury's 90-day clock, which expires March 9, by stalling. Slowhand and Crackbrain have been enabling PP to that end. It took Slowhand 40 days, for instance, to respond to PP's complaint about an issued subpoena....

    Planned Parenthood takes bucks to abort blacks

    I said earlier today UCLA pro-lifers would be releasing a blockbuster issue of their student newspaper, The Advocate. Lila Rose just called to say its live, and here 'tis. Click cover, right, to enlarge.

    Here's the story:

    Over the summer, The Advocate... [had] an actor call [Planned Parenthood] clinics across the country and pose as a donor. The actor... communicated... a very racist agenda, the one Margaret Sanger, PP's founder, envisioned.

    He... asked to donate money specifically for the abortions of African-American babies... to "lower the number of blacks in America." Despite his bigoted requests, no PP employee (or director of development, in one case) declined the tainted money.... In fact, some even went as far as agreeing with the antiblack agenda....

    "Personal choice vs. retail choice" and other gems

    NARAL2.jpgEarlier this month NARAL Pro-Choice Washington breathlessly reported 10% of Washington state pharmacies don't stock or refuse to dispense the morning-after pill, thereby creating a crisis.

    It is irrelevant but fun to note that, according to the Abortion in Washington blog, the Washington State Pharmacy Association, although pro-MAP, promptly released a statement that it was "appalled by [NARAL's] sloppy data collection process and inaccurate conclusions... littered with errors, out-of-date information and inaccuracies." These included marking 30 pharmacies as both stocking and not stocking the MAP, etc.

    But what could NARAL do about it anyway, even if the number was truly scary, say 12%? In November a district court judge enjoined a new rule that would have forced pharmacists to stock and dispense the MAP, in violation of their 1st Amendment rights.

    I said all that to get to this....

    Pro-abort prof to develop balanced abortion curriculum?

    Pro-abort, pro-gay Drury University professor Teresa Hornsby has been handed a grant by the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion to develop a "historic" college teaching program on abortion "that takes into consideration many different viewpoints."

    Hornsby is an expert on the pro-abort viewpoint, that's for sure.

    New ALL video

    On the heels of its victory over YouTube censorship, American Life League today released a new video, "Planned Parenthood kills for profit." PP has energized its streamlined enterprise to become a more lean, mean, killing machine.


    YouTube unbans ALL video

    A month ago I posted American Life League's new video, which it had posted on YouTube, spotlighting Planned Parenthood's new "Mile High" ad as well as other PP best of's.

    On February 11, ALL got notice YouTube had yanked its video for its "inappropriate nature."

    But get this. YouTube did not yank PP's original "Mile High" ad.

    Now, thanks to the pro-life community's outrage about YouTube's obvious viewpoint discrimination, it reinstated ALL's video yesterday, apologizing in an email there had been a "technical malfunction."

    Not true. YouTube's guidelines state, "If we remove your video after reviewing it, you can assume that we removed it purposefully, and you should take our warning notification seriously."

    So YouTube was unfairly censoring and just got caught.

    And now, back by demands for fairness, ALL's Planned Parenthood Sells Sex video:


    Jane Fonda and C-Day

    Whoops.

    Yesterday was supposed to celebrate V-Day, devised 10 years ago by activist Eve Ensler to combat violence against women.

    In that decade V-Day has raised over $50 million, according to Fundraising Success magazine, largely by allowing groups to produce Ensler's play, The Vagina Monologues, as a benefit. Groups must apply, and V-Day must approve donation plans as well as receive 10% of proceeds.

    ensler%20fonda2.jpgSometimes star power helps sell VM tickets. Enter Jane Fonda, who has performed the play and yesterday appeared with Ensler on The Today Show to promote V-Day.

    The ever judgment-challenged Fonda decided to utter a word on morning network television from the VM that will never be ready for prime time and is, in fact, the most despicably sexist word in the English language: the c-word....

    The fat lady has not yet sung in Aurora

    by Mary Kay Hastings

    fat_lady_sings.jpgLast month the City of Aurora dismissed motions pro-life attorneys filed to reverse permit decisions allowing Planned Parenthood to build.

    Now, pro-life advocates have filed suit against officials for the City's inexplicable contention that PP's permit approvals did not violate City zoning rules.

    The plaintiffs, including residents and Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood, say the clinic misrepresented itself to the city and to the public, using a fictitious name, the Gemini Office Development corporation, to hide behind during the zoning approval process....

    Planned Parenthood consolidates: Regional box stores

    by Jill Stanek

    naperville2.jpgPlanned Parenthood Chicago Area recently announced it closed its Naperville PP Express due to the opening of its nearby mega-abortion mill in Aurora.

    And IL Family Institute linked to a January 1 State Journal-Register article reporting the PP family planning clinic in Logan, IL, has closed due to "flat" government funding of many years.

    Citizen reported yesterday PP also "recently closed four sites in Michigan and merged several in Ohio."

    Shortage of funding is a ruse, since PP is almost a $1 billion annual operation with $400 MILLION sitting in the bank, according to Life Decisions International.

    PP has also increased its market share of abortions from 5% to 20% over the last decade, reported of IL Right to Life, incidentally made easier by the fact it gets government funding so it can undercut the competition.

    I have previously reported it appears PP launched a new marketing plan in the early 2000's to increase its share even more. Part of that plan is obviously to create new regional box stores, such as Aurora (22k sq ft) and Denver (50k sq ft). Graphic design of the latter mill below (sans security fence) is courtesy of PP Rocky Mountains:

    pp%20denver.jpg

    This all leads to some great questions posed by reader Eileen in an email, which I'll paraphrase.

    Why is PP merging and building bigger regional box mills? If they complain about the shortage of abortion clinics around the country, and that close access is imperative to garnering abortions, what is the benefit to women by merging and building bigger? Wouldn't they want to market smaller stores in more places?

    Crossed cultures and botched abortion

    usman.jpgThis sad story is all over the British press.

    It appears the Muslim family of 22-year-old Sabia Walla forced her to get a late-term abortion in Pakistan at 5 months gestation after learning she was pregnant by British national Usman Gulzar, 24 and pictured right, who she married in secret on December 27 in Scotland, where both families live.

    Walla died January 23 following a botched abortion. She was apparently pregnant when married.

    Here's a story snip, from The Daily Record, January 30:

    Usman Gulzar was last night dealing with the shocking revelation that his pregnant wife died after a botched abortion....

    Tiller's late-term abortions on parade

    Kansas law only allows abortions after 22 weeks if two physicians who are not legally or financially affiliated agree "a continuation of the patient's pregnancy would cause a substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function." That's it.

    If you haven't been following the story, a grand jury investigating George Tiller's late-term abortions has issued 2 subpoenas: One, for all abortions Tiller committed after 21 weeks from July 1, 2003, to January 18, 2008; and one for all patients post-21 weeks who did not get one. The jury has specified that all identifiers be removed.

    Tiller attorneys say this amounts to 2,000 records, and they filed a motion yesterday to block the subpoenas.

    Troy Newman of Operation Rescue testified before the grand jury the week before they issued the subpoenas, providing 200 pages of evidence, including photos of obviously late-term mothers entering Tiller's mill, below. My guess is many of these moms were carrying babies who were diagnosed, in their 2nd trimester, with handicaps.

    To this day, Tiller advertises late term abortions for fetal handicaps, which is not an accepted exemption by KS law.

    The first photo is of a non-aborting 22-week pregnant mom, to provide context.

    The Parable of the Good Abortionist

    In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, two people pass by a man on the side of the road who has been robbed, beaten, and left for dead. But a noble 3rd passerby sees that the beaten man has a child and stops to kill the child to spare the man more angst.

    parker.jpgWait. That's not what happened.

    No, the 3rd person spots the beaten man, roughs him up for more money, and then kills the child.

    Yes, that's it.

    NOW skewers Kennedy

    My, it was only yesterday that I posted NARAL prez Nancy Keenan's plead for factions within the abortion cabal to stop verbally aborting one another.

    Now comes this whopper of a rant, verging on hysterical, which doesn't bode well for the group that tries so hard to be men, NOW.

    And, strange that NOW expresses surprise at Kennedy's abandonment of women. Leaving them to drown must not meet NOW's criteria.

    This really is a remarkable display of total loss of control, and Keenan saw it coming. Liberals, who always try so hard to put on a unified face, are fracturing. Click to enlarge:

    Papaya abortions

    papaya.bmpWithin one day, the smart collegians at Yale Daily News last week yanked a garish article on a commemoration of the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade by the Reproductive Rights Action League at Yale and Yale Medical Students for Choice.

    Ah, but through the wonders of caching, the piece is still available in all its tawdry glory:

    Students who walked into WLH 119 on Tuesday night were greeted with models of the female pelvis complete with fallopian tubes, cervixes, vaginas - and papayas on which to perform mock abortions....

    What the other side is thinking

    From the Los Angeles Times, January 22, a fairly candid op ed by Frances Kissling (pictured 1st), former president of Catholics for a Free Choice, and Kate Michelman (pictured 2nd), former president of NARAL. Am posting excerpts here. Read entire piece on page 2.

    Abortion's battle of messages
    It's not 1973. Pro-choice forces must adjust to regain the moral high ground.

    ... Since Roe, U.S. public opinion has been relatively stable and favorable to legal abortion. Early efforts to overturn Roe failed miserably. Given this reality, the anti-choice movement changed tactics. It no longer focused primarily on banning abortions but concentrated on restricting the circumstances under which abortion would be available. It succeeded in shifting public attention from broad support for legal abortion to strong support for restricting access. Twenty years ago, being pro-life was déclassé. Now it is a respectable point of view.

    kissling.jpg

    How did this happen? Did the pro-choice movement fail? Or did those opposed to abortion simply respond more effectively to the changing science as well as the social shift from the rights rage of the '60s to the responsibility culture of the '90s?

    In the 1970s, the arguments were simple and polarized: Abortion was either murder or a woman's right to control her body. The fetus, however, stayed largely invisible. The pro-choice movement stayed on the message offensive, tactically shifting in 1989 from women's bodies to the "who decides" question posed by NARAL.... But this was rapidly parried by the anti-choice demand that we look at what was being decided, not just who was deciding....

    Guttmacher report inaccurate

    I reported earlier in the week I was skeptical of The Guttmacher Institute's most recent report indicating that by 2005 abortion had dropped 25% from its all time high of 1.6 million in 1990 to 1.2 million. Guttmacher, after all, is the research arm of the head of the abortion cabal, Planned Parenthood. Why no one in the MSM was skeptical comes as no surprise.

    Now Guttmacher has been found way off its numbers in at least 1 state, Illinois. Kudos to Bill Beckman of IL Right to Life for uncovering this. According to the Chicago Tribune, January 17:

    Rachel Jones, lead author of the report, noted that abortion rates can differ... from one part of the country to another. "Some states, such as Connecticut, had increases in the abortion rate," Jones said. "But Illinois had a larger-than-average decline -- the rate came down 19% from 2000 to 2005."

    Beckman responded in a Trib letter to the editor, published January 18:

    ... I did not recall such a drop being consistent with the data published by Illinois Dept of Public Health. I checked the IDPH Web site. [See stats right; click to enlarge]....

    Abortions in 2000 were 45,884 and in 2005 43,409. That change is only a 5.4% drop, far lower than the stated 19% drop. In my mind, this raises questions about what data is being used in the Guttmacher Institute report... and what level of reliability it should be given. If such inconsistencies exist for Illinois, what about the data for other states?

    To further emphasize my point, IDPH data for 2006 shows 46,467 abortions in Illinois, higher than the total for 2000, so no decrease at all.

    Why would Guttmacher lie? Lots of reasons....

    Planned Parenthood abortion mill "blessed"

    satanist3.jpgPlanned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson announced the blessing of its new 18k sq. ft. building, which includes a "surgical wing," by press release, "On Sacred Ground - Blessing of the Building by Schenectady Clergy," according to the Times Union blog.

    Someone snapped a couple of photos of the clergy, although, I didn't think images of these people showed up on pictures. Maybe I'm thinking of vampires.

    A vampire blessing would have been more fitting, but they don't come out during the day, even one as tempting as the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, January 22, when this blessing was held.

    Speaking of which, the Times Union eeked a 438 word article on the March for Life, with crowd estimates anywhere from 100-250k, while lavishing 804 words to the PP blessing with "about three dozen" attendees. Plus that 127 word blog announcement. But I'm just getting picky. Back to the blessing. Quoting the TU:

    satanist%205.jpg

    [T]he Rev. Larry Phillips of Schenectady's Emmanuel-Friedens Church declared the ground "sacred and holy ... where women's voices and stories are welcomed, valued and affirmed; sacred ground where women are treated with dignity, supported in their role as moral decision-makers ... sacred ground where the violent voices of hatred and oppression are quelled."...

    The Rev. Abby Norton-Levering... [said], "We pray that you will make this a place of safety and give a sense of sanctuary."...

    The Rev. Bill Levering, senior pastor of First Reformed Church of Schenectady, said the right to privacy is endowed by God....

    "Even God respects the right of privacy. We make women into children when we say they cannot control their own bodies," Levering said.

    Phillips led everyone outside where they laid their hands on the brick and limestone as the minister declared, "This is sacred ground."

    "We make women into children when we say they cannot control their own bodies"? What?

    Killing girls

    A 54-minute documentary called Killing Girls is supposed to be in production now for release in 2008. (I wrote the director, David Kinsella, for more info but have not yet received a response.)

    The film is about a Russion late term abortion "department" for teens who abort up to 8 months gestation. Abortion is epidemic in Russia, where they say mothers have 2-10 each, despite the availability of contraceptives.

    I watched the trailer a few days ago on YouTube and remain distressed about these killing girls.

    In fact, we were in the process of planning a vacation through Carlson, and I called my agent and said the deal was off if Carlson did not refute. I told the same to our Wachovia rep. Neither was happy about news of the possible PP connection, and both immediately checked into it.

    Who pays for Planned Parenthood's "sell sex" ads?

    We the taxpayers do. American Life League has just posted its latest video report spotlighting Planned Parenthood's new "Mile High" ad as well as favorite moments from other PP ads. Who could forget, for instance, the PP superhero who blasted pro-lifers to smithereens with a gun loaded with condoms?

    ALL makes the connection between selling sex, selling contraceptives, and selling abortion. Of course.

    In ALL's release announcing its latest video it noted that PP is starting to take notice of its ads in blogs and podcasts. Kudos!

    Planned Parenthood ♥s Barack Obama

    I'm flattered. The Truth About Margaret Sanger blog is calling Day Gardner and me "the other Obama girls." Day is president of the National Black Pro-Life Union and also has had plenty to say about Obama's radical pro-abortion position.

    But Obama girls like us won't be sending him any valentines this year. Not to worry, Obama's girls at Planned Parenthood are sending him plenty of love. This will be tricky since they're all heartless.

    Planned Parenthood's "Mile High" ad

    MK and Sara emailed me a link to this ad last week, and I just didn't see anything new to get worked up about. I think I'm jaded. But pro-life news orgs and friends have been spotlighting it, so I'll join the gang:

    The only part of the ad I think worth noting is Planned Parenthood's flagrant stereotyping of homosexuals. Were our side to make a comedic ad featuring a flaming lispy gay with bent wrists, the movement would beat us with rainbow flags.

    But the homosexual and abortion movements are best buds, as I often say, so they laugh and work together. They both have the same goal: illicit sex with no consequences.

    Perhaps you see something else in the ad to discuss...

    What I did on my college break

    We've been chronicling the Denver Families Against Planned Parenthood protests of various executives helping build the Denver Planned Parenthood mega-abortion mill.

    On December 29, they were again protesting the home of Bill Hornaday, president of The Weitz Company Rocky Mountain division, the PP project's general contractor, when his son appeared, home from college. What a sterling example his father has set for him. Hope the big, fat bonus is worth it.

    At any rate, father and son packed up and left right after the group arrived, son shielding his face from the video camera with a newspaper. As Will Duffy, group organizer, said in an email to me, "Who would want to put up with this?" I agree. And they certainly don't have to.

    Here's a funny addendum. The Greenwood Village City Council, where Hornaday lives, recently passed ordinances trying to stifle pro-life protests, limiting length of stay, number of protesters, etc. So on New Year's Day, pro-lifers protested the home of Jerry Presley, ringleader of the city council First Amendment squash attempt. He promptly called the police, but the group was following the rules, so they couldn't be stopped....

    Pro-life = Pro-forced abortion?

    Debs over at the Abortion is a Woman's Right blog has created what she is aptly calling the Pro-Choice Carnival.

    "This Carnival aims to highlight some of the best writing on the theme of a woman's right to choose," explained Debs, who then listed some winners, including an interesting January 2007 post from Jill at Feministe. I missed that one, although I'm often too busy to keep up with the pro-abort circus, I admit. But it's a new argument to me:

    I am pro-choice because I believe that if we outlaw a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy, there is no legal argument against forcing a woman to terminate a pregnancy, or disallowing certain people from reproducing.

    Had the other side not been damaged by the Aurora PP debacle, it would not even have been remembered to make the list, but #1! It even beat Iraq!

    And by the way, there is plenty of evidence of wrong-doing. But Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner and city attorney Alayne Weingartz are going to moronic lengths to overlook the rule of law in their strange quest to enable PP. Meanwhile, pro-life investigations, lawsuits and subpoenas still abound. Stay tuned.

    And to all pro-lifers helping fueling the Aurora PP story, please take a bow.

    Pro-life video power

    2007 saw pro-lifers really begin to tap into the power of videos and YouTube to present our message. Who can forget the clips by seminarians at Institute for Priestly Formation in Omaha who spun Apple vs. Microsoft ads into witty NFP vs. contraception ads?

    And who knew abortion could be satired? Well, abortiondoc did....

    White Weitz Christmas

    I reported December 23 that the pro-life group Families Against Planned Parenthood in Denver planned to picket the home of a Weitz Company official on Christmas morning. Weitz is the general contractor for PP's new mega-abortion mill.

    The picket recipient was Bill Hornaday, president of Weitz's Rocky Mountain outlet.

    A pro-abort commenter recently suggested that pro-aborts picket homes of pro-lifers. I responded that will never happen because pro-aborts have no drive or intestinal fortitude. You only see a sprinkling, if any, at a pro-life rally. Note, for instance, the Aurora PP protests, where pro-lifers consistently outnumber pro-aborts 1000:17 (or less). And forget it if the temperature drops below 70 or climbs above 80.

    The photos below demonstrate the utmost of pro-life resolve: Picketing during a blizzard on Christmas morning. Whether or not you agreed with their strategy, you must admire their dedication.

    UPDATE, 2:45p: One of the pro-life protesters informed me they protested five executives altogether: Bill Hornaday, previously noted; Gary Meggison, Weitz senior vp; Don Gendol, Weitz executive; Reid Goodman, abortionist; and Ed Kubly of Big R Construction.

    Jamie and Juno alarm feminists

    Tell me again feminists are pro-"choice" and not pro-abortion. Tell me again they don't push abortion.

    Clearly the feminist community prefers mothers in unplanned or crisis pregnancies abort. What an odd turn of events if girls have decided to listen to only half their message: have sex like rabbits but not abort the bunnies?

    jamie%20smile.jpgIf this is indeed a cultural shift, eugenicist Margaret Sanger will turn over in her grave. Her scheme will have backfired.

    From The Star, December 20:

    Could something as unglamorous as an unplanned pregnancy be Hollywood's latest hot trend?

    Earlier this week, Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old sister of Britney Spears, said she was expecting and plans to keep the baby.

    She's hardly alone. Lily Allen, Nicole Richie, Bridget Moynahan and Keisha Castle-Hughes are among the young stars who have recently announced surprise babies.

    (Let's take a quiz. How many of the aforementioned were products of comprehensive sex ed vs. abstinence ed?)...

    Just out, Planned Parenthood's newest "Choice on Earth" cards

    Earlier this month Planned Parenthood issued its 13th annual "Choice on Earth" anti-Christmas cards, as I reported here.

    Apparently, I overlooked a couple....

    "Asi se aborta en España"

    That means, "This is How Abortions are Done in Spain," a groundbreaking program showing abortions on Spanish national television for the first time last week. If only the American media were so honest.

    According to LifeSiteNews.com, a reporter posing as an abortionist seeking work at El Bosque de Madrid got the footage. The report is entirely in Spanish, a tad frustrating.

    Following is the exposé. The first of 2 abortions is shown at 9:12. They are induced labor abortions, such as I witnessed at Christ Hospital. The first mother in the video appears to have had an epidural because her legs are floppy. Not sure on the 2nd. The brown tube is a catheter into the bladder, inserted because pregnant mothers with epidurals have lost the urge to urinate, and an empty bladder also makes more room for the baby to come down.

    These mothers have had medication or laminaria (seaweed sticks) inserted into the birth canal to open the cervix, a process that can take 1 day to several days. The nurse has assessed they're ready to deliver. Little push, and the babies are out. The video states 1 of the babies, shown in the soiled utility room later, was 20-21 weeks old, or 5 months. LSN reported staff killed the baby beforehand by lethal injection. I wish someone would translate the video into English. LSN has done some transcribing, which I've excerpted on page 2.

    Denver Planned Parenthood's layers of deception

    The owner of Lucht's Concrete Pumping in Denver is a Christian.

    So he was watching for any job proposals crossing his desk to help construct the new Denver Planned Parenthood abortion mill from PP's front company, Fuller 38 LLC, or PP's general contractor, Weitz Company.

    But he didn't know to watch for a proposal coming from JOB Concrete, Inc., owned by John O'Brien of Bloomfield, CO, hired by Weitz to hire a concrete pumping subcontractor.

    One of Lucht's workers was watching the following December 16 local Fox News broadcast about pro-life protests at the PP site as well as at the home last weekend of Ed Kubly of Big R Construction, a subcontractor who has agreed to work for PP's blood money, and realized the site at which they were working was PP's. Click on image to link:

    video2.jpg

    The morning after that broadcast, December 17, Lucht's pulled its equipment and workers off the site and donated the $1800 it had been paid to Keep Peace in Stapleton, the group organizing the PP protests.

    When Steve Lucht called O'Brien to ask why he didn't tell him he was being hired to build for PP, he said O'Brien's response was, "Just cover the logos on your vehicle and you should be fine."

    In October, Gary Meggison, Weitz senior vp, told Rocky Mountain News, "he... has been up front with subcontractors on the project about its controversial nature."

    Mr. Meggison, it appears quite the opposite. Why? Aren't you "pro-choice" on allowing your subcontractors and workers to decide whether they want to help build an abortion mill?

    Choice destroys peace

    I find it sadly ironic that the word Planned Parenthood chose (no pun intended) to replace the word "Choice" is "Peace" since that is exactly what is destroyed by the choice of abortion which they promote and carry out.... "The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion." ~ Mother Teresa

    ~ Blogger Reflections of a Paralytic, December 19

    Here is American Life League's take on Planned Parenthood's 2007 "Choice on Earth" cards, which I posted a couple of weeks ago. The ALL video also shows a blasphemous soft porn commercial by PP:

    In a press statement with release of the video, ALL's vp Jim Sedlak said, "By changing the word 'peace' to 'choice', Planned Parenthood is effectively implying that Mary should have considered aborting Jesus.... King Herod sent soldiers out to slaughter babies because he wanted to kill Jesus. Two thousand years later, Planned Parenthood is still doing all it can to kill babies. That is what their motto 'Choice on Earth' really means."

    UPDATE, 1:10p: Read "release [of] some atheist angst" over my post at The Huntress' Domain.

    Killing without consequences

    I received a call this afternoon from Eileen Smith, mother of Laura Hope Smith, who was killed by abortionist Rapin Osathanondh at Women's Health Center, 68 Camp St., Hyannis, MA, on September 13, 2007.

    Laura%20Hope%20%282%293.jpgLaura was 22 years old and 13 weeks pregnant. Her fiance, a soldier stationed in Iraq, left to her the "choice" whether their baby lived or died. Laura sadly chose death.

    Osathanondh, still in business, operates a one-man mill. He's the only medical professional on his premises with two sidekicks, a receptionist and a patient "hand holder".

    Incredibly, Osathanondh to this day administers general anesthesia by himself and then commits the abortion by himself. There is apparently no MA law against this.

    Laura died on Osathanondh's table. Details are unknown, but her toxicology report came back normal. Apparently, the anesthesia simply overcame her. Osathanondh may or may not have been in the room at the time. When he found her or realized she wasn't breathing, he yelled for his receptionist to call 911, but she had already left for the day. So the hand holder called. I think she was confused and thought she was ordering a pizza. Hear for yourself....

    Justice for moderator Mary Kay (MK)

    mk2.jpgA week or so ago I posted as quote of the day this comment by Des Plaines, IL, Police Chief James Prandini, taken from the Chicago Tribune, on the firing of Officer Dick Lalowski for harrassing pro-life sidewalk counselors at an abortion mill:

    "This was an important case for us. It sets the tone for our conduct. We can't have officers treat people like this."

    I didn't put 2 and 2 together until later that our own moderator Mary Kay (MK) was one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit that drew the termination! She told me about the lawsuit awhile back, but pro-lifers around the country are so busy suing police and cities for First Amendment violations, I at first considered this "just" another victory - because we do inevitably win.

    So, congrats, MK!

    Saturday: Aurora Officials Anarchy Day

    fence%203.bmpI've never known a city government to commit anarchy against itself, but now there's Aurora.

    City officials have ignored their own ordinances and zoning requirements to allow liar and thug Planned Parenthood to settle in after weaseling in, creating havoc and lowering property values. That was a great idea.

    fence%201.bmpSo when I found out Dominick/Safeway's temporary permit for its hideous temporary chain link ghetto fence expires tomorrow, I thought not to expect Aurora officials to suddenly become law-abiding and demand they tear down that see-through wall.

    Dominick's has owned a vacant lot across from the new PP mill for several years but suddenly erected the fence 9 days after PP's opening.

    But wait, there's more anarchy to behold, on a grander scale....

    Aurora prayer interrogation

    I previously posted about the Aurora police threatening to arrest a man for praying on a sidewalk while walking his baby across the street from Planned Parenthood.

    Well, J. T. Eschbach of ChicagoProLifeActivist shot video that day and has posted it on YouTube.

    The video demonstrates that the clear violation of Roger Earl's First Amendment rights was worse than thought. A female police officer actually dared to ask him what he was praying about. Incredible.

    Aurora bombshells: subpoenas, permits, and gag orders

    Well, well. Turns out the occupancy permits the City of Aurora issued Planned Parenthood on October 2 were only temporary, and the last of the three issued expires December 17.

    What will the City do? Neighborhood property owners filed an appeal moments before PP opened, which should have stopped it but didn't. Now? "It would be blatantly improper for the City to keep issuing permits while hearings are underway," Peter Breen told me, speaking on behalf of the Thomas More Society, the legal group leading the effort to shut down PP.

    weingartz.jpgMeanwhile, pro-PP (or anti-discovery of incompetence) Aurora counsel Alayne Weingartz, pictured left at last night's Zoning Board of Appeals meeting, has since November 15 been admitting without fanfare that all along PP's approval process city officials were going by the wrong ordinance. She now correctly refers to ordinance 093-124 in her written documents about PP rather than the incorrect 093-123.

    So what? 093-124 states the PP property is zoned BB (business boulevard), which flat out prohibits nonprofit health facilities from being built, and 093-123 doesn't.

    Aurora officials have now admitted they screwed up but are still asking the Zoning Board of Appeals to dismiss the appeal, i.e., to dismiss the rights of Aurora citizens. They are also trying to argue the ZBA has no jurisdiction anyway.

    As this goes on, it is becoming clear that Aurora officials, foremost Weingartz and Mayor Tom Weisner, are either grossly incompetent or covering up a scandal.

    Which leads to our side's request of the ZBA for permission to issue subpoenas. Weingartz has refused to hand over relevant documents.

    The ZBA slapped Weingartz at last night's ZBA meeting and ordered her to cough up several. But she's still fighting several, including emails and phone calls made to the supposed independent investigators who stated PP and its front company, Gemini Office Development, were slimy but not crooks for hiding until the last minute that the "medical building" GOD constructed was actually a PP abortion mill.

    zba.jpg

    It appears by their reports that two of the investigators made their decisions based on bad information: ordinance 093-123. So our side wants to deposition those two, along with city workers, to whom Weingartz has issued a gag order, threatening our attorneys with disbarment if they try to talk to any of them.

    Stay tuned until January 7, when the ZBA will decide whether it has authority to hear the appeal and whether it will allow Thomas More Society to issue subpoenas.

    "America's most renown anti-abortion extremist" visits Denver

    I reported last week that Ann, Joe, and Eric Scheidler, and J. T. Eschbach were planning to travel to Denver this past weekend to rally the troops to fight Planned Parenthood building its new largest mill in the Mile High City.

    Keith Mason provided me with details of the action.

    The above photo is of nearly 300 people picketing outside the proposed abortuary Saturday morning. (That's Eric Scheidler speaking into the megaphone, with Joe's hat to his left.)

    As planned, the rally moved to the nearby Radisson. Fortunately, the hotel was under contract, because PP tried to shut the pro-life event down by calling the hotel and saying it would be hosting America's most renown anti-abortion extremist....

    Choice on earth

    Since 1994 Planned Parenthood has enjoyed poking Christians with sticks at Christmas, mocking the birth of Jesus with their unique holiday greeting cards. This year PP offers the same ole same ole "Choice on Earth" options along with a lie for good measure - pretending to like children.

    The creative geniuses at Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, who previously brought us "Superheroes for Choice," a cartoon depicting violence against pro-lifers that included decapitation, have designed their own Hanukkah styled card (last in row). Their festival of lights includes justice, safety, and prevention. We share the same goals but are just 180 degrees separated on how to meet them.

    In 2002, then-PP president Gloria Feldt said PP's supporters were "energized by the vicious criticism of our holiday card." But I'm not seeing much attention paid to PP's cards this year. They've apparently become blase.

    So as not to disappoint PP, I now present them for your vicious criticism (click to enlarge, except last):

    Breaking news: New group challenges National Right to Life

    breaking.jpgI was given this news tip yesterday, but actually Time magazine broke the story November 21, which no one apparently picked up on, perhaps because it was only posted online:

    [B]ut what's clear is that the anti-abortion movement is fractured. Colorado Right to Life has a mailing list of 10,000 and a $100,000 budget but is no longer affiliated with the National Right to Life Committee - "kicked out," says [CRTL spokesman and Denver Christian radio talk show host Bob] Enyart. He explains that the NRLC has refused to back "personhood" for decades, citing the unlikelihood that it would pass muster with the U.S. Supreme Court....

    And this week in Washington, the same coalition, with representatives from 12 states, plans to announce a new national splinter group - American Right to Life - which will be headed by Brian Rohrbough, whose son Daniel died in the Columbine shootings and who has been an outspoken critic of the American "culture of death."

    Status of Hialeah baby

    giuliani%20fl.jpgCNN featured a photo of Rudy Giuliani signing autographs in Hialeah, FL, yesterday, which prompted me to check on the status of the Hialeah baby abortion murder case.

    Backdrop:

    On the morning of July 20, 2006, an 18-year-old pregnant mother returned to A Gyn Diagnostics Center in Hialeah, now shut down, to abort her 23-week-old baby after having been given a medication to dilate her cervix the day before.

    She complained of abdominal pain all day with abortionist Frantz Basile nowhere to be found. Finally, between 2-2:30p, she delivered the baby alive with at least one clinic worker present. Both saw the baby gasping for air and moving.

    Clinic owner Belkis Gonzales allegedly came into the room, cut the cord, and put the living baby into a biohazard bag containing bleach....

    Sex manual for kids

    it%27s%20perfectly%20normal.jpgAmerican Life League/Rock for Life are making good use of YouTube.

    They've just uploaded a video expose of, It's Perfectly Normal, a book supposedly for kids ages 9-12 that has been banned from at least one prison as pornographic.

    News to me, the book lists the anus as a sex organ, certainly not its original or ongoing purpose.

    And the decent among us have united. It's Perfectly Normal topped the American Library Association's list of "most frequently challenged books of 2005" for "homosexuality, nudity, sex education, religious viewpoint, abortion and being unsuited to age group," and ranked #15 in ALA's list of "100 most frequently challenged books 1990-2000" - even though it was published more than halfway through the decade, in 1996.

    Of course, Planned Parenthood endorses It's Perfectly Normal. Good for business. The book promotes abortion, of course.

    This makes sense. After an abortion business lies its way into a city and citizens overwhelmingly oppose it, city officials turn on the citizens.

    With no plan in sight to pour sidewalks so those citizens can safely protest according to their First Amendment rights, or even so the poor women of America can safely trudge barefoot and accidentally pregnant to Planned Parenthood's largest abortion mill in the U.S., Aurora city officials have instead erected nonsensical signs to nowhere banning pro-life presense from anywhere across the street from PP (click to enlarge)....

    CO pro-life protest and BBQ

    les%204%20-%20bbq.jpgIn Chicago we have tailgate parties before Bears games. In Colorado pro-lifers have tailgate parties at protests. Major hoot.

    Here's the report from Leslie Hanks:

    On November 18, 30-40 Denver pro-life activists enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers at a protest and BBQ in front of the Cherry Hills Village home of Weitz Construction executive, Bill Hornaday.

    Although it appeared that the Hornadays were not home, most of his neighbors saw the signs of aborted babies and "Abortion is always wrong" signs Planned Parenthood opponents carried. The youngest protester was a 5 day old baby boy....

    One forlorn young woman... sat in her front yard with a hand made sign indicating her family will donate to Planned Parenthood every time there is a protest of the new super death camp's construction company executive. Ironically, she told pro-lifers she was adopted, but she sadly championed a woman's right to "choose."

    Hodari's "license to lie"

    I blogged here and here that Wayne State University's Medical Students for Choice invited late-term MI abortionist Alberto Hodari to speak November 9.

    Students for Life of America was there to catch the 50 minute speech on videotape with two cameras and will be releasing "best of" clips. The first is below.

    student2.jpgLet me preface the clip by giving a shout out to the WSU abortion apprentices who invited Hodari: Kia Jones, Jonathan Oakes, Katie O'Connell, and Cynthia Velting-Kidder. I'm not sure which one introduced Hodari, but there's her picture on the right.

    And we upset her, sorry to say. At the close of her intro she said, "I'm sure pretty much everyone here knows that this has been... there's been a lot of [unintelligible] surrounding this talk. One of our fellow students sent our flyer to the national pro-life people. We are now all blogged on their blogs, and you know, it's pretty upsetting that a fellow student would do that to us, brand us, so people know what kind of people we are. But we're here to stay and we're not intimidated by that and we really appreciate everyone coming out becuase it makes all that perhaps worth it."

    I'm not sure why we would be considered intimidating when the young woman was standing next to a man who has been accused of killing at least two women and maiming many more.

    And "brand"? Why would publicizing one's profession be considered "branding"? She should thank us. I'm hurt. And my dear, you don't need pro-life bloggers to broadcast what kind of people you are. You're doing fine broadcasting that on your own.

    At any rate, here is the first clip, and it will not disappoint After ridiculing aborting fathers who pass out while observing their child being sliced and diced, Hodari admits to lying to both father and patients about the procedure. Hodari's braggadocio is quite shocking, quite stupid, actually. What a guy. How long will abortion proponents try to say these quack abortionists are anomalies?

    Note this abortionist only lies less now thanks to public education about abortion, no thanks to the industry. This video clip should be shown at every legislative hearing on Women's Right to Know laws - which the industry always fights. It's no wonder.

    National Right to Life

    I'm not too happy with the National Right to Life Committee these days.

    The tipping point was learning on November 3 while attending a speech given by Hadley Arkes at Valparaiso University that NRLC originally opposed the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which Hadley wrote and which I testified regarding. Hadley explained during his speech the Partial Birth Abortion Ban was coming to the fore about that time, and NRLC thought it more important and that BAIPA was too soft.

    castle.gifAdd to that, NRLC actively opposed the South Dakota Abortion Ban and is currently actively opposing the Georgia Human Life Amendment.

    There may be pragmatism and smart politics and all involved in these NRLC decisions, but when a pro-life organization takes the same position as pro-abortion organizations, something is wrong.

    There are other things, but that's enough of a backdrop.

    So about Fred Thompson.

    NRLC's endorsement might be the best decision. I just know he's not the best pro-life candidate. There is at least one other who is polling as well or stronger, and he's more pro-life, and that's Mike Huckabee. I'm not in Huckabee's camp, but when I compare the two, I just don't get NRLC's endorsement. I'm cynical.

    I'm wondering if the leadership of NRLC, which has been the same forever, has become too immersed in the DC culture. This would go a long way toward explaining support for Thompson (and his wife) over Huckabee. Also recall NRLC immediately jumped on board the Harriet Miers bandwagon.

    I'm wondering when pragmatism and smart politics become something else.

    UPDATE, 10:10a: Email from "Washington insider," as s/he wants to be identified, on the question of NRLC's endorsement of Thompson:

    Don't really know what to make of it. It's a prudential judgment, obviously: the result of a no-doubt complicated calculation of who is most likely to win divided by the square of who is least objectionable on the issue times an estimate of what states they can make a difference for him in.... Like any early endorsement, it's a gamble: if he wins, they're in like Flynn. If he loses....

    Judge Judy to hear Tiller case?

    judy2.jpgBoth Judge Judy and Judge Roy Brown are vying to hear a small claims court case filed by KS pro-life activist Mark Gietzen against late-term Wichita abortionist George Tiller, who was served yesterday.

    Gietzen is requesting the maximum allowable, $4,000, for injuries he sustained after Tiller allegedly ran him over and then fled the scene outside his abortion mill last year.

    The details of the hit-and-run, according to an Operation Rescue press release:

    Gietzen says that as he and another man were measuring the driveway to insure that certain prayer activities were within the law, when Tiller accelerated his Jeep Grand Cherokee directly at them, even turning to continue to aim at them as they began to move out of the way. Tiller’s Jeep struck Gietzen as he attempted to move, bruising his arm and leg, and causing pain for several months.

    Tiller should definitely agree to let either Judge Judy or Roy hear this case. The shows pay the claim, so Tiller would get to keep a late-term abortion's worth of money rather than hand it over to a pro-lifer.

    Aurora Planned Parenthood: Rats in the zone

    weisner.pngIn yesterday's autumn 2007 Aurora Borealis, the City of Aurora's quarterly newsletter, Mayor Tom Weisner rationalized allowing Planned Parenthood to lie its way into his city by saying he investigated PP from every angle for naught.

    But all along, pro-lifers smelled a rat, particularly since the mayor's current chief of staff, Bill Wiet, admitted knowing PP was coming to town beforehand.

    So while Weisner ramrodded an investigation of PP that ended with the verdict pro-lifers suspected Weisner wanted, pro-lifers called for an investigation of Weisner, which to date has not been conducted.

    Against that backdrop, OpenLineBlog today caught Clintonspeak in the mayor's newsletter....

    Denver Planned Parenthood has front company; Weitz falsifies permit documents

    Does this sound like Aurora deja vu?

    On January 11, 2007, a corporation named Fuller 38 LLC bought the property at 7155 E. 38th Ave. in Denver from United Airlines for $1,350,000 according to this HomeInfoMaxReport.

    On August 20, 2007, the Denver Post broke the story of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains' stealth purchase of the United Airlines Denver property with this map acknowledging the purchase was made "under a different name":

    Halloween, Planned Parenthood style

    vox%20logo2.jpgPlanned Parenthood has only one thing on its mind: SEX.

    You would call PP perverted unless you understood the organization makes all its money off the unmerry-go-round of selling illicit sex and fixing the consequences of illicit sex.

    Case in point, the Voices for Planned Parenthood hook-up club* at Louisiana State University, aka Vox LSU.

    (*Comedian Chris Rock astutely noted during one of his routines (warning: explicit) that the best women to pick up are self-identified pro-aborts. "I love going to abortion rallies to pick up women, because you know they're f***... You ain't gonna find a bunch of virgins at at abortion rally.")

    On Halloween, Vox LSU members dressed as "their favorite form of birth control," i.e., walking advertisements for PP products, "to raise awareness about the need for prevention and contraception." Click all photos (more on page 2) to see enlarged view:

    It's the day after Halloween, and I'm still feeling spirited.

    The Planned Parenthood Aurora blog was complaining about pro-life pickets of the Weitz Company in Denver and homes of its leaders, which I've reported on extensively. Weitz has agreed to build PP's new largest abortion mill in the U.S. there, coming in at 50k sq. ft., more than double the size of the Aurora mill. Said blogger Marie...

    PP's big abortion picture

    I received the letter below a week ago from head of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists with the following preface:

    PLEASE READ THIS LETTER CAREFULLY. It concerns the world-level meeting in London to discuss improving women's healthcare on a worldwide basis, and especially in the undeveloped countries....

    The agenda for this meeting was not set up by flesh and blood, but by the rulers, the authorities, the powers of this dark world and by spiritual forces of evil in high places, to quote a well known writer. This is what we face on a world scale.

    Well, I did read the letter carefully. Our side wrote it in response to the recently held Women Deliver Global Conference, held under the guise of reducing infant and maternal mortality, as you would think by this graphic from its site as all others on this post:

    Planned Parenthood Chicago: Peyton Place

    peyton%20place.jpgIt never occurred to me before today that the shorthand we use for Planned Parenthood, "PP," could also stand for Peyton Place.

    Eric Scheidler has posted two juicy lawsuits against PP Chicago Area and its CEO Steve Trombley.

    First there's the one filed by former PPCA head abortionist Murray Pelta. According to the lawsuit, he started aborting for PPCA in 1992, was promoted to chief baby killer in 1997, and was fired by Trombley on February 28, 2007.

    Planned Parenthood does not commit abortions?

    We've been tracking Denver Planned Parenthood's plans to build a 50,000 sq. ft. abortuary, in an apparent contest to earn the coveted title of PP's largest U.S. abortion mill, which Aurora Planned Parenthood currently holds at 22,000 st. ft.

    Weitz Construction is the Denver PP's intended builder, and pro-lifers have been picketing Weitz and homes of its vp's for a month now. (See here, here, here, and here.)

    weitz2.jpgNow word comes that a meeting held yesterday between pro-lifers and the CO head of the IA based company did not go well. Its president, Bill Hornaday, refused to reconsider building the mill.

    Meanwhile, Denver pro-lifer Will Duffy recorded a conversation with Sue Damos, wife of the IA Weitz CEO
    Craig Damos, wherein she said Planned Parenthood does not commit abortions. Listen:

    Sue Damos audio

    Seriously, how ignorant can a person be?

    Worse, the PP Denver mill will focus on killing black babies in the heart of a minority neighborhood, 1/2 block from Martin Luther King Jr. Park no less, standing true to its founder Margaret Sanger's eugenic plans.

    Bloody Kansas abortion wars unleash nationwide attack on Planned Parenthood

    bloody%20kansas.jpg150 years ago it became known as Bloody Kansas for violence erupting between pro-choice slavery supporters of the Kansas-Nebraska Act and anti-slavery abolitionists.

    Now the state known as the abortion capital of the world thanks to infamous late-term abortionist George Tiller is at the center of identical opposing ideologies, erupting in nationwide warfare against the US's largest preborn baby killer, Planned Parenthood.

    College day of service: Planned Parenthood

    rmu2.jpgThis past Saturday a student at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh learned something new: Planned Parenthood commits abortion. Duh to many of us, but not to that college freshman.

    RMU requires that first year students complete some form of community service throughout the year, and on Saturday's Day of Service, the Planned Parenthood of Western PA abortion mill in Pittsburgh was one of 14 options RMU offered. RMU representative Kyle Fisher told me this was PP's 2nd year on the list.

    dental%20dam.jpg10 students chose PP to volunteer to assemble "safer sex kits." Five calls to various PA PP's yielded ignorant staffers who had no idea what was in those kits. Nor did Ms. Fisher.

    But I found perusing the web the kits contain a male condom, female condom, flavored lubricant, latex glove, dental dam, and finger cot....

    How well do you know the candidates?

    naral5.jpg

    NARAL has put together a fun little quiz on the pro-life/pro-abortion position of the major presidential candidates:

    http://prochoiceaction.org/can/candidatesquiz.html

    I scored 8 out of 9, or 89% (missed #4).

    How well do you know their positions? I hope I'm not giving away any answers when noting this test underscores why the Democrat Party is known as the Party of Death.

    Dominick's has erected a fence

    breaking.jpgReceived information from reader Dennis that beginning at 10p last night and completed by 11:30p, a fencing company erected a fence around the perimeter of the vacant lot owned by Safeway/Dominicks across from Planned Parenthood Aurora.

    Just spoke with Eric Scheidler, who has also received the same information from numerous sources. He is going to the site to take pictures. Will post when up. The fence is apparently an 8-foot chain link.

    Chris Danze strategizes with Denver pro-lifers

    I previously reported pro-lifer Chris Danze planned to travel from TX to CO to help Denver pro-lifers plot a boycott drive against Planned Parenthood's planned 50,000 sq. ft. mega-mill on one square city block in a minority neighborhood.

    Following is a photo of Chris' visit over the weekend, taken at PP's 29th and Vine mill location. Two more are on page 2. You can't see the building due to the great lengths PP went to erect a Berlinesque wall to evade democracy and protect its lies and bondage from truth and freedom. Click to enlarge.

    Aurora Planned Parenthood weekend catch-up

    1. Someone asked for the actual occupancy permit zoning appeal pro-lifers filed with the City of Aurora. Here 'tis:

    Appeal as filed with the City of Aurora Clerk's office
    Appeal as filed with the Aurora Zoning Board of Appeals

    Both are the same, just submitted to different City departments . Of note is they were dated and timed before Planned Parenthood's scheduled opening October 2 at 10a.

    2. Jeff at Chicago ProLife Activist attended Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner's hastily assembled October 1, 3p, press conference, to forego alerting, and certainly involving, the City Council in his unilateral decision to let PP open 19 hours later, the following morning at 10a.

    Of particular interest in Jeff's as usual well done and pithily cut video is the admission by the Mayor's office that it did apparently think to alert PP of his decision beforehand:

    3. NAUSEA ALERT: If you were looking not to get riled on this pleasant autumn Saturday, do not watch the following t.v. ad PP Aurora began airing this week, which contains not just misinformation but actual false advertising. Can you spot it? Click on this very nice graphic to go to the ad:

    4. INSANE MSM BIASED BLAME GAME ALERT: This Aurora Beacon editorial blames pro-lifers for the legal stir PP provoked by its deceptive and stealth entry into its fine city (read entire piece on page 2):

    Anti-abortion activists pushed for an investigation and got it, which cost the city thousands of dollars in legal fees. But now that they don't like the outcome, they want to fight another expensive court battle that will cost the city more tax dollars. They should accept the result of the independent review they influenced in the first place.

    [HT: OpenlineBlog]

    5. Eric Scheidler's October 5 email alert answers the question (read entire alert with plan and instructions on page 2):

    Last week I asked you to sign up to speak at the next City Council meeting, this Tuesday, October 9. Now that Planned Parenthood has opened (at least for now) people are asking whether we still need to go to the meeting.

    The answer is ABSOLUTELY. In fact, this is arguably the most important City Council meeting for us yet.

    News flash: Aurora Mayor Weisner cancels police protection

    security.jpgOpenlineBlog tells me Mayor Tom Weisner cancelled his police protection at 5p last night, which I mentioned yesterday he had initiated.

    The mayor likely feared an et tu Brutus scenario, since Aurora police are planning a protest before the Aurora City Council meeting this Tuesday over an ongoing labor dispute. OLB is calling for every contingent with any complaint against the mayor to pile on the protest, which sounds like fun.

    Planned Parenthood Aurora targets neighborhood grocery store

    100_3865a.jpg

    For the previously naive, one enlightenment from the Aurora Planned Parenthood spectacle is it's a Chamber of Commerce's anti-Christ.

    Forcing its way into Aurora with brazen lies, PP broke every CC business conduct rule and I'm sure gave CC pause to consider new ones.

    Then, on the very day it opened, PP began executing its successful city sundering model on the neighborhood level, setting its sights on the nearby Dominick's grocery store, which owns the vacant lot across from PP's private drive. (Photo I took, above, looks south across the vacant lot to PP. PP's driveway and parking lot are just off the right side of the picture.)

    Three delays

    Well, just because it's the weekend doesn't mean the news stops.

    delays2.jpgFirst, Eric Scheidler's delayed appearance from last week's Fox News Live will be TODAY, in less than an hour. It can come any time after 11a CST but is expected about 11:20a CST.

    Next, the pro-life libel suit against Planned Parenthood has been delayed, I hear, because additional plaintiffs are continually being added. Look for that to be filed early next week.

    Finally, here's the report of another sort of delay from the Aurora Beacon, today:

    Kane County State's Attorney John Barsanti will wait until next week to issue his much-anticipated decision on whether officials from Planned Parenthood broke the law in applying to build a women's health center in Aurora....

    Barsanti has been reviewing Planned Parenthood/Gemini Office Development's application, permitting and approval process for possible criminal fraud after anti-abortion activists raised concerns a couple of weeks ago. The state's attorney's office had been expected to release its report on Friday, but officials said the release has been put off to next week, noting "Monday is still viable."...

    Whoops - Gemini: for-profit; Planned Parenthood: nonprofit

    breaking.jpgThis information came to me late this afternoon, and pro-lifers hammered on it over and over at the Aurora City Council meeting tonight, which finished about 11p.

    The deal is Planned Parenthood's created front company, Gemini Office Development, LLC, is a for-profit company, and PP is a nonprofit company.

    Eric Scheidler told me the Aurora Zoning Administrator corroborated that as a nonprofit organization, PP requires a "special use permit" to occupy and operate in its building.

    According to Aurora zoning ordinances, a special use permit requires public notice in a local paper and public hearings, and property owners nearby can raise objections to the use. If 20% object, a supermajority of the City Council (2/3) must approve the use....

    Denver Planned Parenthood: sky zero

    If the Aurora Planned Parenthood site in the IL prairielands is ground zero, then the Denver Planned Parenthood site in the Mile High City is sky zero.

    Last month, with a reporter in hot pursuit, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains was forced to come clean about its secret purchase of a city block of property and plans to break ground on a 50,000 square foot abortion mill this November

    PP has admitted to several news outlets it went stealth with plans to build in Denver, Aurora, and Portland, OR, to avoid such pro-life boycotts as were undertaken at the Austin, TX, PP mill in 2003, which delayed its opening several months.

    In Denver, pro-lifers are already realizing PP's fears. Two weeks ago they conducted a lit drop in the African-American neighborhood of the proposed PP. Here is what an RH Reality Check columnist called a "lie-packed brochure." Sorry, Jim, it was footnoted, although Jim is likely ticked because one of his inadvertently PP-damning columns is cited in it three times (click to enlarge):

    40 Days of freaking the abortion industry out

    The Lufkin Daily News yesterday called it "what may be the largest simultaneous anti-abortion protest in American history." Called 40 Days for Life, it starts this Wednesday in front of an abortion mill near you.

    Numbers in the Bible, like 7, 12, and 666, for example, hold meaning. The number 40's signficance offers the introduction to this 1 minute video about 40 Days for Life:

    Explained LDN:

    The 40 Days for Life event is a nationwide campaign in 90 cities across 33 states....

    The vigil is scheduled for Sept. 26 - Nov. 4.

    The campaign focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, calling for peaceful vigils outside clinics in combination with educational outreach, a campaign press release stated.

    super%20heroes2.jpgHeld once a year since 2004, 40 Days for Life has established a great track record, involving four components: prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils in front of abortion mills - around the clock if possible, and a neighborhood door-to-door flyer distribution education drive.

    Its success must be why the abortion industry is gearing up against it.

    Zorn: "In defense of Planned Parenthood's deceptions in Aurora"

    My pro-abort sparring friend, columnist Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune, has weighed in on the Aurora Planned Parenthood situation.

    And with a title like this, "In defense of Planned Parenthood's deceptions in Aurora: Sometimes the only way to get fairness will make your foes cry foul," you know madness is coming.

    In fact, when I read Eric's piece about 2a this morning, I found so much wrong with it, I knew I'd never get to sleep if I gave it too much thought. So I closed it up, like a surgeon who has found a body overridden with cancer.

    But I've already received two emails on Eric's column this morning from pro-life friends, so I can tell you're feeling feisty. In fact, John Jansen wrote me, "After reading it, I felt like the mosquito at the nudist colony: I simply don't know where to begin."

    Planned Parenthood's court papers for Thursday

    scales.bmpI posted the City of Aurora's court documents filed in opposition to Planned Parenthood's motion for a preliminary injunction to open despite Aurora's ongoing investigation into its deceptive practices.

    Now, here are Planned Parenthood's.

    The case will be heard today in federal court in Chicago before Judge Norgle at 10a.

    Notice
    Motion
    Steve Trombley supplemental declaration

    The last is most intriguing. It contains in Exhibit 2 (pages 7-18) a series of emails and a phone log for February 20-March 6 that seem to show contact was made between Steve Trombley and an Auroran official named Bill Wyatt. They also seem to show contact was made with Mayor Tom Weisner. It will be interesting to see this shake out.

    The emails also seem syrupy Eddie Haskell fake, but that's an aside.

    Planned Parenthood investigation widens to criminal probe

    steve%20jail4.jpgFrom the Chicago Tribune, late tonight:

    Clinic battle intensifies in Aurora

    Mayor seeks criminal probe of permit process
    By James Kimberly | Tribune staff reporter
    10:41 PM CDT, September 19, 2007

    The Kane County state's attorney has been asked to see whether Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area committed any crimes in how it obtained a permit to build a clinic on the city's east side.

    The request came from the City of Aurora and escalates an already contentious battle over a planned abortion clinic from a mainly procedural and civil dispute into a potential criminal one.

    This would seem to me to impact the federal court hearing later this morning on PP's request to force Aurora to let it open.

    Read complete article on page 2.

    UPDATE, 11:58a: From an Auroran source: "[D]on't be excited about [the criminal review]. It could a ploy by Weisner to say there wasn't anything 'criminal' found, so case closed. The fact he is in favor of John Barsanti is very suspicious since Barsanti endorsed [City Council member Richard] Irvin for mayor. That would be more of a conflict than what Weisner complained about before."

    Selective enforcement

    Aurora attorney and resident Vince Tessitore received the following letter today in response to his letter to the City of Aurora yesterday demanding that it enforce ordinances against Planned Parenthood for unlawfully occupying its mill after its temporary occupancy permit expired Monday.

    Tessitore used the word "occupancy" twice, and "occupy," "occupying," and "occupation" each once. He couldn't have been more specific on what matter he wished addressed except had he added "occupied," "occupier," or "occupationality" perhaps.

    Yet Aurora corporation attorney Alayne Weingartz responded that she would check whether PP had opened for business, a poorly disguised blow-off.

    Meanwhile, Aurora police harrass pro-lifers if they sneeze on Planned Parenthood air space.

    Planned Parenthood Aurora's hot pink barbed wire

    Planned Parenthood Federation CEO Cecile Richards sent out an email alert late yesterday afternoon retreading soundbites from previous emails and asking again to donations for Aurora PP's hot pink ribbon campaign:

    pink3.jpg

    But there were no hot pink ribbons to be seen anywhere at the mill when I attended the Jericho March protest Saturday.

    I asked Jeff from ChicagoProLifeActivist about it. He said PP displayed tiny hot pink ribbons on strings for awhile that actually made it look like the mill was fortressed by hot pink barbed wire, but PP took them down.

    Rats, I thought. Would have loved to see that.

    Well, I just spotted photos of the pink barbed wire on Planned Parenthood Aurora's website:

    Planned Parenthood's idea of public disclosure

    Jeff at ChicagoProLifeActivist did some sleuthing yesterday. Jeff created all graphics and photos on this post.

    Steve Trombley, Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area's CEO, has been saying lately that while PP admittedly hid its ownership of the Aurora abortion mill by creating a front advance company, still PP was forthcoming.

    Two examples of Trombley before:

    "Frankly, I'm surprised we were able to keep it a secret for so long," said Steve Trombley, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area.... "We didn't want anything to interfere with the opening... and, at this point, I don't anticipate anything will stop that from happening." ~ Chicago Tribune, July 27
    [Trombley] said that Gemini, a limited liability partnership, was set up to mask Planned Parenthood's involvement to keep protesters away while the $7.5-million clinic was being built. "It should be evident... why we did that," Trombley said. "This land was zoned for medical services. The city didn't ask what type of medical services." ~ Los Angeles Times, August 31

    And Trombley after (click to enlarge):

    What about this "newspaper notification"and "public hearing" that "they made public"?

    Jeff discovered the newspaper notification was posted by the IL Finance Authority, not PP, and in the Chicago Sun-Times - a newspaper 40 miles from Aurora - on April 20 on page 74 with PP/Gemini's names buried....

    Aurora: ground zero

    From the Chicago Tribune, today (read entire story on page 2):

    trib.jpg

    ... Seldom do opponents and supporters of abortion rights agree across one of the nation's most contentious political divides. But as Planned Parenthood fights to open a 22,000-square-foot clinic in Aurora this week, both sides concur that this city of 170,000 is a pivotal battleground on the national stage.

    "It is playing out very big across the country," said American Life League Vice President Jim Sedlak, who travels extensively, seeking ways to shut down abortion providers. "Aurora has shown the pro-life community that given the right set of circumstances, they can get thousands of people out, and now everyone wants to do that."...

    In a recent e-mail to supporters, Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood Federation of America president, highlighted the struggle in Aurora.

    "Something amazing is happening. Right now, this very moment," Richards wrote. "Ground zero in the fight for women's access to reproductive health care just landed in a town in the middle of America."...

    Eric Scheidler, an Aurora resident and spokesman for the Pro-Life Action League, says he has been inundated with calls for advice from allies in Georgia, Florida, New York, Oregon and throughout the Midwest.

    "I've never seen an issue that galvanized the pro-life community like this," Scheidler said. "Trying to get even 40 people to get out to an abortion picket is like pulling teeth. I'm getting 100, 200, 300 people, day after day."...

    Aurora Beacon: "Former official knew Planned Parenthood was coming to city"

    weisner.jpgWhat I get from this story is that Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner had something to be nervous about, which may be why he at first to appoint an independent investigator into Gemini/Planned Parenthood fraud who was a "friendly."

    That aside, this story further corroborates PP's deceptiveness. PP called a city official to express "interest[] in relocating their offices from Naperville to Aurora" - when PP already owned the office building in question, and it was near completion? If the story as outlined by the Beacon is true, this only strengthens Aurora's case that PP/Gemini practiced deception against it.

    #1 story Fox Chicago: Aurora Planned Parenthood

    Look quick. The Aurora Planned Parenthood saga is the lead story on the Fox News Chicago site right now. Eric Scheidler has something important to say. Go watch the news clip.

    You'll see in that clip PP CEO Steve Trombley has found another straw to grasp. Even though Gemini and PP deceived the City of Aurora about the intended occupant of its building, Steve says the City should have known by the looks of the plans.

    FNC is also asking this poll question: "Would you want a Planned Parenthood clinic in your neighborhood?" Go vote. On right side of home page.

    UPDATE, 9/18, 7:23a: Well, I told you to look quick. The Aurora PP saga is now rotating as top story (which is still good). It can be viewed here, where you can also still vote on the poll, which has been running 70-75% against PP. The story is actually very fair. I even think Trombley weakened PP's credibility even further via this story.

    Time Magazine: "The Abortion Wars Hit Illinois"

    This was just published by Time Magazine an hour ago:

    In Illinois today, a federal judge is expected to hear an intriguing argument in the abortion debate. At issue: Is Aurora, Ill., a city of nearly 175,000 about an hour's drive west of Chicago, trying to stop Tuesday's scheduled opening of the nation's largest Planned Parenthood clinic because of political pressure from anti-abortion activists? Or was the clinic's true nature - that is, its Planned Parenthood genesis - not readily apparent to city officials when they originally approved permits for the building? Or is it a bit of both? The case is already one of the most heated in the nation's grassroots abortion wars, and protests in Aurora this past weekend drew hundreds of anti-abortion demonstrators....

    UPDATE, 4p: On this point in the Time article, "The group [PP] says abortions accounted for 3% of its services nationally last year," here is this direct quote from PP Chicago CEO Steve Trombley, from the Aurora Beacon, July 29:

    "There's a need for this service," Trombley said, citing Aurora's population boom and burgeoning populations in Kane and surrounding counties. "Ninety percent of medical services are for preventative gynecological services. Only 10 percent of what we do relates to abortion services."

    1. Tiller faces criminal misdemeanor charges on 19 illegal late-term abortions committed in 2003 not signed off by an unaffiliated physician. For this Tiller could lose his license and spend a year in jail for each convicted count.

    2. Tiller just lost his battle to block a grand jury from being convened to investigate illegal late-term abortions Tiller may have committed since 2003, with a petitioner request that Sedgwick County DA Nola Foulston and AG Paul Morrison, both with ties to Tiller, not be involved in this investigation.

    3. KS legislators conducted a 2-day hearing earlier this month investigating Tiller's late-term abortion practices to consider finding and strengthening loopholes in current late-term abortion laws. As part of this, one of Tiller's patients, Michelle Arnesto-Berg, testifed that when he aborted her in May 2003 she signed no consent form, was asked for no medical information, and was never diagnosed with any condition that met the legal requirement of "substantial and irreversible impairment" for abortions after 22 weeks. Only recently Michelle learned Tiller charted her baby as nonviable, which was news to her. Hear Michelle's testimony here.

    Judge denies Planned Parenthood Aurora's request to open tomorrow

    breaking.jpgThis information comes from pro-life attorney Tom Brejcha, who just left the hearing:

    U.S. District Judge Charles Norgle has denied Planned Parenthood's request for an order that Aurora allow it to open tomorrow.

    There is a very short schedule for the next hearing. Each side has 24 hours to file papers to respond. They will be back in court Thursday morning. This hearing will include witnesses if appropriate if either side brings them.

    U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall refused to take the case. She said this wasn't related to the Pro-Life Action League case currently before her. Turns out PP wanted its case to go before Kendall, which was likely a tip-off she may lean in favor of abortion.

    This is great news.

    UPDATE, 1:20p: Eric Scheidler just emailed this additional information on today's hearing, which he attended:

    Planned Parenthood was asking Federal District Judge Charles Norgle to issue an injunction that would have required the City to let them open for business WITHOUT concluding the investigation into PP's dealings with the City.

    Judge Charles Norgle listened to arguments from PP and the City for an hour, and decided a full hearing was required.

    The hearing has been set for Thursday at 10 a.m. That means that Planned Parenthood will not open until Friday at the earliest.

    One important point to keep in mind:

    The question here is not whether PP can ever open. The question is whether their opening can be DELAYED while an investigation is concluded into the allegations raised into wether PP defrauded the City.

    That question may be settled Thursday after a full hearing.

    Deconstructing Planned Parenthood/Gemini cover-up I

    deconstruct.jpgFrom today's Chicago Tribune:

    [Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area CEO Steve] Trombley conceded Planned Parenthood was coy during the application process because it did not want to tip off its opponents while the clinic was under construction. But Trombley denied Planned Parenthood ever defrauded or deceived the city. "In no way did we deviate from the letter of the law," he said....

    When Gemini told the city it was unsure who its tenant would be, that was technically true at the time because the decision had not yet been made as to because which entity related to Planned Parenthood would occupy the building, Trombley said.

    First, Trombley spoke as if Gemini were in charge (Gemini "owner," PP "tenant"), when in fact, it is the other way around. PP owns Gemini. Trombley told the LA Times August 31...

    ... Gemini, a limited liability partnership, was set up to mask Planned Parenthood's involvement to keep protesters away while the $7.5-million clinic was being built.

    "It should be evident... why we did that," Trombley said. "This land was zoned for medical services. The city didn't ask what type of medical services."

    Trombley can now try, but there's no avoiding boneheaded things he has said on the public record, the classic, of course, being, "Frankly, I'm surprised we were able to keep it a secret for so long."

    It's straightforward. PP created Gemini. Now, according to Trombley, that Aurora didn't connect the dots is its own fault for not investigating Gemini or scouring public notices in other cities' newspapers.

    Further, in court documents PP filed yesterday it called Gemini "a wholly owned affiliate."

    Also according to those court documents, "In 2002, PPCA began planning for a new medical facility to provide services in Chicago's western suburbs... Ultimately PPCA obtained a parcel of land... in Aurora."

    But PP didn't create Gemini until it was needed for concealment. See Gemini's incorporation papers here, filed with the state on April 24, 2006 (click to enlarge):

    According to FOIAd documents, Gemini's first construction permit was filed July 27, 2006 (click to enlarge):

    howard.jpg(Kathleen M. Howard, photo right, is a Perkins Coie attorney, PP's legal consultant per tax returns.)

    And what did Trombley mean by saying they didn't "technically" lie about the occupant because they weren't sure "which [PP] entity" that would be?

    PP only has two entities: expresses and mills. Expresses don't commit abortion and don't have surgical suites, and mills do commit abortions and do have surgical suites.

    And PP/Gemini were flummoxed about that throughout the process of constructing a medical building containing surgical suites? Give me a break.

    An email from Planned Parenthood Federation CEO Cecile Richards this afternoon (click actual email to right to enlarge):

    Dear ,

    Planned Parenthood is under attack.

    To be absolutely clear: the largest anti-choice protest we've seen in a very long time is happening at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora, Illinois, at this very moment.

    It's easy to ignore if you don't live there or aren't a woman trying to seek health care services at the clinic. But I hope you won't ignore it, because what's happening in Aurora is what's happening to all of us who care about choice in America.

    We are facing no less than the most emboldened protest by the most radical anti-choice people I've ever encountered. They've made our brand new health center in Aurora ground zero in their fight against women's access to health care. And they are determined to keep our clinic from ever opening.

    Clergy is on Planned Parenthood board

    From pro-lifer Dan Gura via Republicans for Fair Media, today:

    On September 12, WLS-TV [local ABC affiliate] anchor Ron Magers introduced a... segment, Ministers Voice Support for New Clinic, with "There's new support for a controversial plan to open a Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora. A group of ministers came out in support of the clinic Wednesday."...
    Only one was identified by name, Rev. Randall Doubet-King, who said, "Each year, Planned Parenthood provides tens of thousands of women and families in this region with services they need and deserve to make the choices they need to make."...

    I googled Doubet-King....

    I was not surprised to learn he was a retired Pastor with the United Church of Christ....

    [But also,] on April 23, 2004 Planned Parenthood sent out a press release which announced:

    Rev. Randall Doubet-King Receives Planned Parenthood Davis Award for Distinguished Service.... Rev. Randall Doubet-King is truly an outstanding clergyman and advocate for reproductive rights. His work with Planned Parenthood Chicago Area has enriched a variety of essential programs and projects and his frequent presence in the press as a pro-choice clergy voice has been an invaluable asset to our movement....

    It also lists his accomplishments:

    Rev. Doubet-King serves as board chair for Planned Parenthood Chicago Area and chair of their PPFA Vision for 2025 Stewardship Committee.

    For WLS-TV News to fail to mention that the "minister" whom they interviewed is not only a shill for Planned Parenthood, but a highly placed cog in their mill's wheel of death, is to do a grave disservice to the truth.

    It is such sloppy journalism to have missed that. Googling the name indeed immediately draws Doubet-King's connection to PP.

    And why wasn't the press conference in Aurora? Speaking of, how many of those "clergy" were from Aurora?

    Eric Scheidler warned in email updates he had heard Planned Parenthood Chicago CEO Steve Trombley requested (ordered?) Chicago PP personnel to show for this meeting, and they did. Here is the scene that greeted us....

    Planned Parenthood's full page ad in today's Beacon


    (Click to enlarge)

    The only entity likely happy about the Aurora Planned Parenthood battle is the Aurora Beacon, which is selling a lot of ad space these days.

    I was flabbergasted when hearing about the full page ad Planned Parenthood took out today with a large photo of a bombed abortion clinic and again accusing Joe Scheidler and Pro-Life Action League of violence. Steve Trombley obviously took Tom Brejcha's letter to cease and desist as a dare.

    Obviously, PP's goal is to turn public opinion away from who it considers ringleaders of the movement to keep PP out of Aurora.

    I'm biased, but it seems to me this is another colossal bad move on PP's part....

    Abortion clinics protect child rapists

    predator.jpgWith the attention on Planned Parenthood of Chicago for attempting to slither into Aurora with what it brags will be its largest US abortion mill, the time seems perfect to post audiotapes of the undercover calls Life Dynamics made to Illinois abortion clinics in the spring of 2002.

    An LDI activist called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation clinics nationwide, posing as a 13-year-old girl impregnated by her 22-year-old boyfriend.

    While this is considered statutory rape in all 50 states, over 90% of clinic employees taking the call nationwide offered to conceal the crime.

    In IL, all 21 clinics that were called - 100% - offered to aid and abet in the cover-up. Of those, 12 were Planned Parenthood facilities, including all 3 in Chicago.

    The calls were made in TX, where it is legal to record phone conversations without the other party knowing. Although these calls are inadmissable in court other than to prove perjury, they demonstrate intent and experience with the scenario.

    Listen to the calls for yourself....

    LA Times: Planned Parenthood's "mask"

    prayer.jpgPer Joe Scheidler's weekly hotline, an August 31 Los Angeles Times story was "[o]ne of the most comprehensive stories to come out of the battle against Planned Parenthood so far."

    Hannity's Planned Parenthood segment

    Jeff from Chicago Pro-Life Activist has posted last night's Planned Parenthood segment from Hannity's America on YouTube:

    I thought the segment covered a lot of ground in six minutes: Planned Parenthood's fraudulent construction practices, its treatment of aborting mothers as cash cows, and its cover-up of minor rape/incest. Thoughts?

    "Planned Parenthood warned: retract lies or face suit"

    WorldNetDaily.com featured a story today on the latest development in the Aurora Planned Parenthood battle: its false accusations against Joe Scheidler and Pro-Life Action League as being violent, and their demand to retract or face a lawsuit.

    Included in the story are links to documents on this blog.

    Candlelight vigil at Planned Parenthood 9/7

    Jeff at Chicago Pro-Life Activist has produced a well-done video of Friday night's prayer vigil at the Aurora Planned Parenthood site.

    Per Families Against Planned Parenthood, 300-400 attended. FAPP has an account of the evening.

    Hannity's America investigates Planned Parenthood tonight

    hannity1.pngTonight, Hannity's America on Fox News Channel will feature an investigation of Planned Parenthood. The show will air 8p CST and 11p CST.

    The program's impetus was the Aurora situation and the tremendous uprising against it. But also covered will be PP's other dubious activities. In fact, show producers asked pro-lifers providing background info to keep it quiet until a few days ago so they could do some digging of PP without it knowing.

    The segment is supposed to air about 8:30p CST. It will feature one or more of the Scheidlers, and we hear it will also feature Chicago's own Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, who had five abortions and is now pro-life.

    This is not Planned Parenthood's week.
