If Planned Parenthood collapses, the abortion industry collapses, Part II

Defund Planned Parenthood abortion kingpin and its clinicsIs it really conceivable that Planned Parenthood could crash, bringing the entire abortion industry down with it? I answer that question today.

Backdrop: “If Planned Parenthood collapses, the abortion industry collapses, Part I.”

As powerful and wealthy as Planned Parenthood appears, its position is tenuous, upheld only by political friends and courts. In contraceptive terms, Planned Parenthood has no Plan B.

Planned Parenthood would hardly have noticed losing taxpayer funding 50 years ago, in 1964. This was when it reported its first government subsidy – chump change of $8,500. Planned Parenthood’s annual income at the time was $6.2 million, 70% of which came from donors, and 30% from clinics.

By 1970, Planned Parenthood’s annual income had jumped to $26.4 million, thanks in large part to taxpayers, who contributed 43% of the total. It was during this period that Planned Parenthood began multiplying clinics. According to Jim Sedlak of American Life League:

In 1962, the year before it received its first taxpayer funds, Planned Parenthood operated fewer than 200 clinics. By 1973, that number had exploded to 700. This, of course, meant that Planned Parenthood’s influence in our nation grew greatly because of government largesse.

In FY2013, 45% of Planned Parenthood’s whopping $1.21 billion income came from taxpayers, to the tune of $540.6 million. Today only 26% of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenue is derived from donations, and 25% from clinics.

Planned Parenthood abortion giant clinic in Fon du Lac closesHow dependent is Planned Parenthood’s nationwide chain on government funding? As Sedlak pointed out, Planned Parenthood was only able to build its conglomerate with taxpayer help.

And only last week Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin claimed it had to close its fifth clinic since 2013 all due to a mere $1 million loss in state funding. 

One should expect a certain amount of fudging on Planned Parenthood’s part; it has been known to conveniently blame clinic closures on government defunding when they were themselves to blame.

But it must also be true that Planned Parenthood is only able to sustain its massive infrastructure with government help. And that is where its potential downfall lies.

“I have always said that if all state and federal tax-funding were cut off from Planned Parenthood, their abortion empire would collapse like dominos,” wrote Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger via email. “I doubt if more than a handful of clinics of any affiliation could survive without an artificial influx of money from outside sources.”

Sedlak agreed: “Planned Parenthood is set up for destruction if Americans ever get the guts to elect politicians who care.”

Planned Parenthood made the decision long ago to tie its future to the whims of government. Its leaders apparently never considered the organization might some day become anathema, with a segment of the population and politicians calling for it to be defunded.

Planned Parenthood abortion clinic staffer makes graphic sexual suggestionsWhatever murmuring may have been heard before only became real noise beginning in 2007, when Live Action launched its investigations against Planned Parenthood, first revealing the organization would accept donations specifically to abort  black babies, then that it would cover up underage rape, then that it would aid and abet sex traffickers, then that it would commit sex-selective abortions, and most recently that it would encourage minors to engage in violent BDSM.

Add to that charges around the country of Medicaid fraud, failure to report child sexual abuse, substandard clinics, and perverted doctors, and you begin to see momentum that has blossomed into a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and a congressional investigation of the organization.

obama valentine2 If not for President Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood might already be going the way of Enron. It is only he who kept Planned Parenthood from being defunded on the federal level in 2011 and in several more states than it already has.

Planned Parenthood knows this. It knows it is only one presidential election away from seeing its political fortunes turn to dust.

Losing the Senate in 2014 would be an advance blow, hence Planned Parenthood’s plan to spend a whopping $18 million this election cycle, in large part attacking the “Extreme Six” Republican Senate candidates who could swing the majority, setting up for a Republican trifecta in 2016.

Planned Parenthood abortion clinic behemoth fighting Republican takeover of SenatePlanned Parenthood’s situation is all the more dire when considering it could lose its tax-exempt status if convicted of Medicaid fraud, cases of which are beginning to snowball; or lose the windfall profits it is anticipating if Obamacare is overturned or if the contraceptive mandate and abortion funding are repealed; or lose its lucrative contraceptive pill trade (for which it has been known to double- and triple-bill taxpayers) if it is made available over-the-counter.

Added to the recent slew of pro-life laws, the fragility of the abortion industry becomes clear when also considering its eggs are increasingly in one basket, and that basket is wearing thin. From the STOPP Report, September 24:

STOPP’s 2013 Survey of Planned Parenthood facilities shows the abortion giant suffered the eighth straight year of decline in both total facilities and affiliates. Planned Parenthood reported running a total of 695 clinic facilities as of December 30, 2013 – the lowest number reported since 1973.Planned Parenthood’s number of affiliates decreased from 74 in 2012 to 71 in 2013, continuing the trend of massive consolidation in management since the high point of 191 Planned Parenthood affiliates in 1978. 

We have continued to see a hefty stream of closures in 2014. Planned Parenthood most frequently cited pressure from legislation, be it defunding efforts or laws tightening clinic standards, as the main reason for facility closures during 2013. In states where legislative pressure was not felt, it most frequently reported facility closures due to a dwindling customer base and efforts to consolidate facilities nearer to its core demographic. In 2013, 79% of the facilities closed were contraceptive-only facilities.

It is clear that Planned Parenthood is preparing for even more facility closures as it implements its community organizer model and online birth control counseling. As it does so, it is focusing more and more on its lucrative abortion business.

Because it has to. Planned Parenthood is driven to take over the abortion industry by greed and survival, needing a financial stream aside from the government funding model it has grown dependent on, and also banking on government funding of abortion.

And the abortion lobby is helpless to stop what insiders surely must see as a coming train wreck.

BREAKING: In new undercover video Planned Parenthood tells minor “harm” ok if consensual

Planned Parenthood gives dangerous sex BDSM advice to minorsToday Live Action released its fifth undercover video exposing Planned Parenthoods across the country as promoters and educators to minors of dangerous, violent sexual activity known as BDSM*.

In this video, shot at the Planned Parenthood in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, the “counselor” goes so far as to tell Live Action’s investigator, posing as a 15-year-old, that causing “harm” to her is “ok” if consensual. That is not only sick advice, it is dangerous. Consensual harm to what extent? Quoting Live Action’s press release:

Anything within the sexual world is normal as long as it’s consensual.”  This includes “rope burns” and “markings” from “clamps.”  It includes going to sex shops, two of which the counselor recommends specifically.  It includes the sort of activity promoted in the explicitly pornographic and abuse-glorifying Fifty Shades of Grey.

Here’s the video:

As a reminder, Planned Parenthood gets over $500 million in tax dollars every year, in part to give sex advice to kids. This must stop!

  • Culture Campaign reports on a new study from Northwestern University which “compar[ed] the birth rates of abortion advocates to the rest of Americans” and “conclude[d] that the shift in public opinion from pro-choice to pro-life since Roe v. Wade is the result of a demographic shift: Pro-abortion women don’t have as many children, or perhaps none.”

  • Big Blue Wave says Canadian pro-life sidewalk counselor Linda Gibbons has again been arrested for standing on the sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic holding her sign and pamphlets. Apparently, this action warranted an over-the-top response from police, who arrived “in four cruisers, as well as three Garda World security cars and [with] two sheriff’s officers, to take the diminutive grandmother into custody at around 11:30 a.m., some two-and-a-half hours after she first appeared at the site, pacing back and forth with pamphlets in hand.”

BBW responds to the arrest:

That so many police officers and security were needed to arrest this little old lady is laughable. What, they expected a riot? Has she ever resisted arrest? Has she ever made a fuss? You’re a joke, Pro-Choice. Your injunction is a joke. Your fear of free speech is a joke. I’m glad Linda Gibbons is making a laughing stock out of you.

  • American Life League’s Judie Brown has some strong words for a society that would have the audacity to support a pro-abortion ad featuring a mother and her child:

    The young mother and her daughter look lovingly into the camera as the mother explains that she wants her daughter to have the same “choices” she has had in her lifetime. This young mother wants her daughter to be able to decide to choose the abortion of a child in the future because she, the mother, could have aborted her daughter if that had been her decision. The choice is what is important, she is saying, not what the result of the choice could be — life or death of a human being.My question is this: How have we as a society come to a point in our cultural attitudes where aborting a baby is something so commonplace that opposition — even politically motivated, weak opposition — is viewed as radical, extreme, and out of step with mainstream America?…

    If this is what we have become as a society, how can we rail against the atrocities of groups such as ISIL. Are we any better?

  • Live Action revisits Planned Parenthood’s “Take Care Down There” website in light of the new information about the organization’s questionable encouragement of risky sexual behavior and BDSM practices among teens.

  • Clinic Quotes shares remarks from abortionist and OB/GYN, Marciana Wilkerson (who apparently retired well; pictured right with husband Dwight Ford). Wilkerson reveals how she deliberately hid her abortion practice from people:

    What we did to protect me in private practice was, if someone called and asked for an abortion on the phone and she wasn’t one of our patients, the staff politely told her that I didn’t perform that service…. But if they knew who she was, they bring her in and I’d speak to her face-to-face. There was a big need for it; women would usually come and say “can you refer me to someone?” And they were thrilled when they found out I could offer the service and not send them out.

  • Euthanasia Prevention Coalition posts a timely anti-euthanasia commentary by Wesley J. Smith. To literally die of thirst – as in the case of the Yazidi in Iraq at the hands of ISIS, or in the case of Terri Schindler Schiavo – is, says Smith, “an awful, horrific death.” He quotes Washington Post health writer Larry Bernstein:

    The body is about 60 percent water, and… if it’s not replaced over time and dehydration becomes severe, cells throughout the body will begin to shrink as water moves out of them and into the blood stream, part of the body’s efforts to keep the organs in fluid….Changes in mental status will follow, including confusion and ultimately coma…. As the brain becomes smaller, it takes up less room in the skull and blood vessels connecting it to the inside of the cranium can pull away and rupture. Without water… [k]idney failure will soon lead to disastrous consequences and ultimately death as blood volume continues to fall and waste products that should be eliminated from the body remain.

    Smith remarks that in light of this information, we should think of those like Terri Schiavo:

    Oh, and notice what [Dr. Jeffrey] Berns said about the size of the brain after dehydration: Terri’s shrunken brain was touted as proof she could feel nothing. Remember?

    People in cognitively disabled conditions may not be able to cry out and beg for food–although I know of at least one case where that happened – because they don’t have the ability. But that doesn’t mean on the inside, unless given powerful drugs – Terri Schiavo wasn’t given that courtesy – they aren’t feeling the same pain as those poor people on the Iraq mountain.

BREAKING Live Action Planned Parenthood Exposed Part 2: whips, asphyxiation

Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains BDSM sex

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains has been much in the news of late.

A couple weeks ago it was revealed that its Aurora abortion clinic has abortion quotas and gives awards for “exceeding abortion visits.”

Last week we learned of a lawsuit filed against Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Denver abortion clinic for not following legal protocol when aborting a 13-year-old in 2012, who it turns out was being sexually abused by her stepfather. Not only did Planned Parenthood commit the abortion and not report the incident to authorities, it gave her a birth control injection against her will, and sent her back to her abuser.

Today, Live Action released the second in its “SEXED: Planned Parenthood’s Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids” series, which exposes “counselors” at two Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains clinics – Littleton and Lakewood –  advising an investigator they thought was a 15-year-old how to engage in dangerous BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism) sexual behavior. 

Along with teaching deviant, dangerous behavior such as urinating and defecating on one another, gagging, whipping, asphyxiation, being leashed like a dog, and using torture apparatus, the Littleton employee encourages the investigator to violate a law banning minors from entering sex shops.

In addition, both employees instruct the young investigator about so-called “safe words.” This is where Planned Parenthood violates a well known feminist mantra, to quote Planned Parenthood elsewhere, “No means no!”

2014-07-15_0801

 

So Planned Parenthood on one hand preaches that if a man hears “no” or “stop,” he is to stop, but on the other hand maybe not. Planned Parenthood, can you explain?

Here’s Live Action’s new video, also at PlannedParenthoodExposed.com:

BREAKING: Planned Parenthood announces closure of three Indiana clinics

Three Planned Parenthood clinics closing abortion feedersThe 4th of July is starting out with a real bang!

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky announced July 2 it is closing three Indiana clinics this summer, in Bedford, Madison, and Warsaw.

None of the three are abortion clinics; they are all feeders.

On its website the Planned Parenthood affiliate indicates the Bedford and Warsaw clinics will shutter on July 25. No date is listed for Madison’s closure.

Planned Parenthood’s demographic winter

According to the Indiana Economic Digest, Planned Parenthood unwittingly admitted partial responsibility for the Bedford clinic’s demise – “a decline in patients coming to Planned Parenthood. It added, “Lawrence County’s demographics have shifted to an older population and younger adults have sought other options for health and reproductive care.”

Of course, Planned Parenthood’s demographic winter is in part due to the future patients it has aborted.

The Bedford clinic has been in operation 39 years, since 1975, enough time to aid in aborting two generations.

Planned Parenthood boasted 34 Indiana clinics in 2009. That number is now down to 27 and will sink to 24 by summer’s end.

Since 2008, Indiana Planned Parenthood abortion clinics and feeders have been the target of several Live Action investigations, although they involved none of the currently closing shops.

Planned Parenthood Indiana BDSM abortion closingMost recently a counselor at the Planned Parenthood Midtown abortion referral clinic in Indianapolis was caught on tape encouraging a Live Action investigator she thought was a 15-year-old to participate in dangerous sado-masochistic sex.

Back in 2009, Live Action caught a now closed Planned Parenthood in Indy lying to its investigator about fetal development.

And in 2008, Live Action exposed Planned Parenthoods in Bloomington and the Georgetown Road/Indianapolis, both of which are still open, as willing to cover up the statutory rape of an investigator posing as a 13-year-old impregnated by her 31-year-old boyfriend.

In 2013 a federal judge permanently blocked the Indiana legislature’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood Indy’s BDSM pusher “no longer employed” – a LIE?

Terminated Planned Parenthood BDSM employeeUPDATE 6/13 7:10a: Planned Parenthood claims it was lying to Live Action on the call. According to USAToday.com:

A Planned Parenthood official acknowledged the staff member who took the call Thursday set up an appointment for the woman posing as the teen, even though she knew it was a Live Action operative.

Planned Parenthood staff went along with the caller’s request to meet with the specific counselor only because the agency would never tell a client about confidential personnel or employee issues, said spokeswoman Tammy Lieber.

“We knew it was a fake,” she said.

UPDATE 6/12 5:20p:  Here’s the audio.

UPDATE 6/12 2:45p: Per Lila Rose on Facebook, Live Action made a follow-up call to the Indianapolis Planned Parenthood today and was told the supposedly ex-staffer was still working there. Stay tuned.

6/12 12:11p: The first casualty of Live Action’s new investigation exposing Planned Parenthood’s proclivity to introduce minors to the dark and dangerous world of BDSM has been seen. According to IndyStar.com last night:

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky says an undercover video released Wednesday by a pro-life group doesn’t reflect the agency’s training or standards and that the employee advising the fake client no longer works at the Indianapolis Midtown center….

Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Tammy Lieber would not reveal whether the employee was fired or left voluntarily, or when that occurred, due to privacy policies.

But according to Live Action’s Lila Rose in an email this morning, the employee seen on video giving explicit BDSM advice to someone she thought was a 15-yr-old was employed at Planned Parenthood’s Midtown location as recently as June 9, two days before Live Action’s video release. “We made an appointment with her just this Monday for today [Thursday],” wrote Rose.

In a statement, PPIK CEO Betty Cockrum tried to confuse the issue by stating, “We are here to ensure that persons of all ages may ask us anything….” iniplannedparenthood-bettycockrum

But Live Action’s investigator never even asked about BDSM. The counselor took it upon herself to introduce the topic, going on to describe hitting, domination, leather, whips, handcuffs, and anal sex as well as recommend a violent, sexually graphic book, porn, and sex toys. If that weren’t inappropriate enough, the counselor spiced up the conversation by adding explicit details of her own BDSM sex life.

Cockrum, pictured right, added Planned Parenthood well-worn excuse, “[T]he heavy editing of this video makes it impossible to know the full exchange that took place….”

But the only reason this video was edited was due to the X-rated content provided by Planned Parenthood employee to a supposed 15-year-old.

Furthermore, an extended cut is available for adults to view, and Live Action will make the entire video available for viewing upon request.

Planned Parenthood’s 50 shades of BDSM

Finally, as Live Action asked in a statement:

They [Planned Parenthood] announce terminating the employee for violating “professional standards” but never specify what those standards are. Meanwhile, their BDSM training video remains online, and they continue to list “resources” that tell kids that torture sex is totally fine. So what exactly did the staffer in our video do to bring the wrath of Planned Parenthood down on her?

Well, Planned Parenthood?

NEW Live Action undercover video: Planned Parenthood Indy teaches 15-yr-old BDSM

Planned Parenthood Indianapolis teaching BDSM to minor

After revealing the subject of its new investigative series yesterday, today Live Action released its first video exposing Planned Parenthood’s dangerous and disgusting practice of teaching underage girls how to engage in violent BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, masochism) sexual activities.

The video shows a staffer at the Midtown Planned Parenthood in Indianapolis, Indiana, taking it upon herself – without being asked – to introduce Live Action’s investigator she thought was 15 years old, to the dangerous world of BDSM [warning: vulgarity from here on out]:

  • “Or you could be a dom – dominatrix, um, type of person. To where you dress in, like, all leather or something, with the whips and handcuffs… or he might be – want to be that towards you… be dominant over you.
  • 50 Shades of Grey, have you read it?… Ok, you need to read it.”
  • “I would start with the taste, and then the role-play… and then work up to the hard, the harder things –  like hitting, and things like that.”
  • “If something is too intense for you, um, use a safety word.”
  • “Uh, anal is something you have to work in, ’cause it is kind of intense and painful sometimes.”

The Planned Parenthood counselor also instructs the investigator about sex shops and sex toys, and how to get around laws blocking minors from buying them:

  • “Unless, like your friend went – if you trusted someone good enough to go in….”

And how to find porn online:

  • “So. It’s – it’s called [name blocked]. It’s a free porn site that you don’t get any, uh, viruses off of…. Like there’s categories that you – can click on the categories, and it’s just rows of whatever you wanna watch.”
  • “Yeah, just Google – whatever you have in your head about how to start something – if you have an idea – Google what is in your head, and I’m sure people have already done it.”

You’ll note the video edits out the worst of the Planned Parenthood staffer’s vulgar advice and personal experiences.

The unedited video can be viewed at PlannedParenthoodExposed.com. Just be careful. This stuff is truly dangerous and addictive. I can’t watch the extended cut. My mind already needs a bath. The Daily Caller posts a bit of what’s on the unedited video if you don’t want to watch it. One money quote from The Daily Caller:

When asked for comment, Phil Derby, owner of the San Francisco BDSM club Citadel, said simply, “I will not talk about anything sexual with anyone under 18. It’s the law.”

The point of this investigation is to underscore the fact that Planned Parenthood gets 1/2 BILLION dollars a year to expose our kids to this filth. It simply has to stop. The State of Indiana tried to defund Planned Parenthood in 2011, but was blocked in court.

Planned Parenthood government funding BDSM

Planned Parenthood sanitizes BDSM websites

At some point in recent months Planned Parenthood thought to add an advisory to its “Getting Kinky – BDSM 101” post, likely after conservative news sources drew attention to it in late February. A video from that post was featured in a trailer today by Live Action, promoting its new investigation into PP’s dangerous practice of counseling kids on how to engage in torture sex.

Here’s how the site looks today, with the responsible looking disclaimer…

Planned Parenthood website and video June 2014

As Live Action noted, “[T]his is an attempt to cover tracks – the tone, structure, and overall character of the video make it clear that it is intended for teenagers.”

Indeed, here’s how the youthful site looked according to the Wayback Machine in June 2013, sans any warning…

Planned Parenthood BDSM website and video June 2013

Speaking of “50 Shades of Grey,” Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic hosted a “50 Shades of Safe” workshop in November 2012 to educate “middle and high school teachers” to, in part, “[i]dentify the types of behaviors involved in BDSM and how a BDSM relationship is successfully navigated between sexual partners,” – “with a specific focus on teenagers and young adults.”

Screen Shot 2014-06-10 at 5.52.20 PM

But if you click on the link to this workshop information now, you will get one of those “404 Not Found” messages, because sometime this past week Planned Parenthood deleted the post. However, a cached version is still available.

Given Live Action’s peek today at upcoming revelations about this sicko organization, I’m sure Planned Parenthood’s web team has been busy doing a lot more site sanitizing.
