Trump Administration Rescinds Obama Warning To States That Cut Funds To Planned Parenthood

Good.

“Despite reporting record income, Planned Parenthood’s non-abortion services are in steep decline, clients are leaving, and dozens of facilities have closed. Meanwhile, the abortion chain does more than 320,000 abortion procedures per year, and they are under federal investigation for their role in the harvest and sale of aborted babies’ body parts for profit.”

“We urge Congress to swiftly finish what this pro-life administration has started by passing the Conscience Protection Act and redirecting half a billion dollars in annual taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood. Abortion is not health care. No one should ever be forced to participate in the destruction of innocent unborn children, and Planned Parenthood does not need or deserve taxpayer dollars,”   said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List.

The Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced [recently] that it is rescinding a warning issued by the Obama administration to state governments stating that they cannot deny Medicaid funds to Planned Parenthood on the grounds that they are abortion providers.

The warning was issued in 2016 by the HHS’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services after Planned Parenthood complained that 24 states were denying Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.

The state initiatives to end Planned Parenthood Medicaid funding came in response to an undercover investigation by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress in 2015 that used hidden cameras to expose Planned Parenthood’s business selling fetal body parts following abortions.

However, it is unclear if the rescinding of the guidance will enable states to cut off Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood, because some federal courts interpret existing federal law as prohibiting the states to do so.

Louisiana has been ordered to restore Medicaid funding in one federal court ruling in 2017, while a federal appeals court permitted Arkansas to bar the funds to the abortion provider the same year.

Additionally, Richard Severino, the head of HHS’s Civil Rights Office, told CNBC that a new regulation is now being proposed that will require health-care providers that receive federal funding to declare that they are respecting the conscience of those workers who do not wish to perform abortions, sterilizations, assisted suicide and other similar procedures on religious or moral grounds. Such a rule could be difficult for Planned Parenthood to implement.

Currently, federal law prohibits Medicaid money from being used for most abortions, although there are exceptions for rape, incest, and threats to the mother’s health. However, it does not prohibit Medicaid money from funding abortion providers for other services categorized as “medical.” LifeSite

Nick Loeb, Jon Voight, and Alveda King Making New Roe v. Wade Movie

“This is the untold story of how [abortion activists] lied and manipulated Jane Roe, the media, and the courts into the decision to allow abortion in 1973,” Loeb told LifeNews.

Two Hollywood actors are coming together with pro-life leaders to produce a film detailing the true story behind Roe v. Wade.

Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight and actor/producer Nick Loeb are involved in the making of “Roe v. Wade: The Movie,” along with Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and others.

“This is the untold story of how [abortion activists] lied and manipulated Jane Roe, the media, and the courts into the decision to allow abortion in 1973,” Loeb told LifeNews.

The film will follow key advocates in the abortion fight in the 1970s, including former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson and Betty Friedan on the pro-abortion side and Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first African American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, on the pro-life side…

The film also will address the racism intertwined in the abortion industry through Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and others, and Jefferson’s fight for unborn babies as well as people of color…

King is slated to play a cameo in the film and Voight a U.S. Supreme Court justice. The film will be feature-length.   LifeNews

The film is being funded in part via donations at IndiegogoThe webpage states:  “A true story of the most corrupt court case in history that led to the murder of 60 Million Babies.”

Baby Body Parts Brokering Companies Ordered To Cease Operations

The case.

The case involves DaVinci Biologics’ sale of fetal tissue products for “valuable consideration” which is illegal under both California (HSC Section 125320) and federal law (42 US Section 289-g-2(a)). From 2009-2015, DaVinci Biologics obtained aborted fetal donations from Planned Parenthood and turned those donations into a profit-driven business.  The company sold hundreds of different “pre-natal products,” for high-margin valuable consideration to companies all over the world, in violation of the law.

The company is also accused of padding packaging, handling and shipping costs to earn extra profits from the sale of fetal parts, and continuing to operate after the State Franchise Tax Board forfeited both DaVinci and DV Biologics’ powers, rights and privileges in July 2015 and November 2014, respectively. LiveAction

These companies are owned by an internationally known crime family.

DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, agreed to settle a lawsuit brought against them by the Orange County prosecutor for illegally selling baby body parts supplied by Planned Parenthood to pharmaceutical companies and schools across America and at least 10 countries for millions of dollars in profit.

The companies avoided a court ruling by settling out of court. The companies, whose owners who are part of an Ecuadoran family convicted of bank fraud amounting to more than $600 million dollars, were forced to pay $7.785 million, turn over more than $10,000 in laboratory equipment and storage containers, and pay $195,000 in civil penalties.

Both companies must cease doing business in California. These companies created catalogues of baby body parts and even ran “specials” to sell to pharmaceutical companies and universities.

“The lawsuit by the Orange County prosecutor began with the report generated by the House Select Committee investigating Planned Parenthood,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Now that the Department of Justice has picked up the investigation of Planned Parenthood, it is time for the source that trafficked in baby body parts to also face justice.

“These despicable acts by these companies and their owners underscores why our client Sandra “Susan” Merritt should be applauded for revealing the seedy underbelly of Planned Parenthood.”

For Merritt’s undercover work, Planned Parenthood attempted to intimidate Liberty Counsel’s client with a retaliatory $16 million suit, and the California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a 15-count criminal complaint that is unprecedented in the history of the state. Liberty Counsel is defending Merritt in both cases.

DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences are owned by Andres Isaias, who is a part of an internationally known crime family. His uncles, Roberto Isaias and William Isaias, were convicted and sentenced in Ecuador for driving their bank into the ground and then using false documents to get a government bailout.

Their fraud cost the country $661.5 million dollars and more than $200 million in assets were not recovered. Andres’ father, Estefano Isaias Sr., was also involved but not charged, according to Operation Rescue. However, rather than Roberto and William serving eight years in prison, the extended family made $320,000 in political donations between 2010-2014, the vast majority of which went to Democrat candidates, including $90,000 to President Obama’s re-election campaign.

They sought asylum in America with their extended families, and their immigration received expedited treatment from the Hillary Clinton-led State Department. Hillary Clinton’s State Department actively fought Ecuador’s requests to deport the brothers, according to The New York Times. Up to now, many extended family members were involved in these companies. Andres’ father and brother managed the financial aspect of both companies and Andres’ cousin, the son of Roberto Isaias, and additional family members were also involved.

The Orange County complaint alleges Estefano Isaias Jr received profits from the sale of baby body parts. He is also CEO of an online porn business.  CharismaNews

Planned Parenthood Has A New Ally – Satanists Challenge Abortion Law In Missouri

Planned Parenthood and Satanists – this is one of the most appropriate pairings in human history.

Missouri has reportedly doubled its abortion capacity this year “thanks to the Satanic Temple and Planned Parenthood,” who have worked in tandem to fight the state’s restrictions on abortion.

With some of the most clearly defined regulations on abortion in the nation, Missouri had managed to lower the number of abortion facilities to a single clinic, but a second Missouri clinic opened its doors recently and two others plan on following soon.

Planned Parenthood has battled against state regulations requiring abortion clinics to meet the same surgical center standards as full hospitals and for their doctors to have hospital privileges, and in April a federal court sided with the abortion giant…

…The Satanic Temple has often lent its muscle to pro-abortion efforts alongside Planned Parenthood, and in this case has pressured Missouri legislators and worked through the courts to bring about a relaxing of abortion restrictions, according to reports. One of the Temple’s fundamental tenets is that “One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.”

On Monday, the Satanic Temple argued in a Missouri court that the state’s abortion restrictions violate members’ rights to free religious practice. BreitBart

Informed Consent violates the First Amendment claim Satanists.

Informed consent laws require patients seeking abortions to read pamphlets designed to dissuade them from choosing the procedure. Often, the pregnant person must also receive an ultrasound. Six states require that patients are told that personhood begins at conception and 13 states require that patients are told about the fetus’ ability to feel pain, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Twenty-seven states have mandatory waiting periods and just four states have 72-hour waiting periods, the longest in the country. ThinkProgress

Missouri’s law mandating that abortion providers get “admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and retrofit their facilities to meet surgical center standards” was rolled back by a federal judge in April, thus paving the way for multiple clinics to open up shop. The crushing blow has offered The Satanic Temple a window of opportunity to attack two other anti-abortion provisions in the state: one requiring women to read anti-abortion pamphlets and another requiring them to wait 72 hours between their initial consultations and a second appointment before the abortion can commence.

The Satanic Temple argued in a Missouri court this past Monday that the two laws violate their religious beliefs, because apparently their religion “prizes rational, independent thought” which would be supplanted if they were forced to read anti-abortion pamphlets and “consider a religious proposition with which they do not agree” during the 72-hour waiting period.

Protecting Planned Parenthood Funding Was Why GOP Senators Collins And Murkowski Voted No On ACA Repeal

Senators Collins and Murkowski  killed the skinny repeal to protect Planned Parenthood funding.  Those 2 Repulicand must want to tap into the millions PP gives to politians.

Two of the senators who singlehandedly derailed the skinny repeal of Obamacare were awarded a sit down interview with the admiring Dana Bash Friday on CNN. The bright faced journalist applauded Sens. Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) for having the “cajones” to vote against the Republican bill when they knew half the country would view them as heretics.

Collins admitted it was an “uncomfortable” vote. But, they both insisted it was the right thing to do, which is why they did not fear backlash from GOP leadership, or even intimidating tweets from the Oval Office.

Both women said they were voting for their constituents, not the Republican Party.

“I made a statement to the president that I’m not voting for the party, I’m voting for the people of Alaska,” Murkowski recalled.

“I remember being so proud of you” for standing up to Trump, Collins said.

Part of standing up for their states, the senators argued, was protecting Planned Parenthood funding. Under the GOP bill, the massive pro-abortion organization would be defunded for a year.  TownHall

Planned Parenthood: How To Teach Children Transgenderism Is Normal

Planned Parenthood, the taxpayer funded leftist-indoctrinating abortion mill, has issued guidelines on how to talk to preschoolers about gender rolls, masturbation, sexuality, transgerderism.

Planned Parenthood has decided that children as young as 4 should be instructed that gender and sex are different and that their genitals don’t indicate their gender.

The abortion provider issued new guidelines for parents on their website instructing them to tell inquiring children that, though boys and girls have different bodies, they shouldn’t pay attention to that, they can be whatever they want to be.

In a piece titled: “How do I talk with my preschooler about their body?” they show parent how to introduce the concept of transgender identity.

While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities ‘boy’ or ‘man’ have vulvas, and some with the gender identity ‘girl’ or ‘woman’ have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

So now, not only is the largest provider of abortion in the U.S. having their abortion industry subsidized by taxpayers, public funds are also furthering the indoctrination of children in a rejection of basic biology.  WesternFreePress

Under a section concerning pre-schoolers, the following hyperlinked questions are addressed:

How do I talk with my preschooler about their body?

How do I talk with my preschooler about identity?

What should I teach my preschooler about healthy social skills and relationships?

How do I talk with my preschooler about personal safety?

What should I teach my preschooler about pregnancy and reproduction?

What should I teach my preschooler about sex and sexuality?  DailyWire

Video, Planned Parenthood Medical Chief Tells How To Get Around Ban On Partial-Birth Abortion

These people need to be arrested and this business needs to be defunded!

Video: Planned Parenthood Medical Director: “Dismemberment” Abortion “Checkbox” Skirts Partial-Birth Law

A new undercover video shows a top physician at a Planned Parenthood affiliate discussing how her organization routinely circumvents federal law regulating certain late-term abortions.

In the latest hidden-camera video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, vice president of medical affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, talks about using a “checkbox” to get around the 2003 law banning partial-birth abortion.

In the video, released Thursday as the Senate again debates defunding the nation’s largest abortion provider, Prabhakaran speaks with investigators from the pro-life group posing as buyers of fetal tissue from a biotech company.

Prabhakaran is seen explaining that to circumvent federal law against partial-birth abortions—in which the unborn baby is extracted partway and then killed—Planned Parenthood doctors document their intent either to perform a dismemberment abortion or to use a feticide such as digoxin, which kills the baby beforehand.  DailySignal

Number Of Abortions And Taxpayer Funding Increased At Planned Parenthood In 2015

Planned Parenthood released its annual report revealing an increase in abortions, while patient numbers and other services declined.

The report shows increases in abortion numbers and taxpayer funding in 2015, alongside decreases in contraception, breast exams and overall patient numbers.

Planned Parenthood continued to maintain its status as the largest abortion provider in the United States. The abortion group performed 328,348 abortions on unborn babies, 4,349 more than the previous year, according to the report.

At the same time, it saw 2.4 million patients, about 100,000 fewer than the previous year and about 500,000 fewer than five years ago. Contraception services, which the abortion chain touts as its primary service, also dropped from 2.94 million to 2.8 million during the past two years.

Meanwhile, the abortion chain received more taxpayer funding. The report shows Planned Parenthood receiving $554.6 million, up from $553.7 million the previous year. This increase occurred while pro-abortion President Barack Obama was in power.

This pattern is consistent with its annual reports from the past several years. Abortions and taxpayer funding keep going up, while patient numbers and other services go down. LifeNews

President Trump Signs Bill Allowing States To Strip Federal Funds From Planned Parenthood

DC has been taking over powers that are reserved for the states, this moves power back to the states regarding Planned Parenthood.

President Trump on Thursday signed a bill that would allow states to withhold family planning funds from Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide abortions.

The bill overturns a rule that the previous administration enacted shortly before the end of former President Barack Obama’s term, which prevented states from disqualifying an organization from federal family planning grants, called Title X, if they provide abortions. The rule was aimed at protecting Planned Parenthood from various defunding efforts among Republicans.

The president of Susan B. Anthony List, which opposes abortion, called Obama’s move a “parting gift to the abortion industry.”

“The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with Title X taxpayer dollars,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List. “Rather, states have the option to spend money on comprehensive healthcare clinics that better serve women and girls.”  WashingtonExaminer

Planned Parenthood Says No To Keeping Federal Funding If Abortion Goes

Keeping Sanger’s idea alive and not the “health care” they claim to provide.

The Planned Parenthood abortion business is refusing to stop aborting unborn babies in order to receive federal taxpayer funding.

During the presidential campaign, President Donald Trump said that the nation’s largest abortion company could continue receiving taxpayer dollars as long as it stopped doing abortions.He repeated that offer to the New York Times:

“As I said throughout the campaign, I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women’s health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of nonabortion services such as cancer screenings,” he said. “Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identify as pro-choice. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.”

Today a representative of the abortion corporation said no.

The Planned Parenthood abortion company official wrapped up the language in terms of not abandoning “patients” even though it abandons women who are victims of botched abortions and abandons the babies who die in abortions.

Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America said “Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept. Providing critical health care services for millions of American women is nonnegotiable.”

The abortion giant could even receive more money for legitimate women’s health care, but it said no.

In private discussions with people close to Planned Parenthood, White House officials have at times suggested that there could even be an increase in federal earmarks if the work related to abortion ends. LifeNews

 

U.S. House Votes To Permanently Ban Taxpayer Funding Of Abortion

It permanently ensures federal taxpayer dollars aren’t used for abortion services instead of ” a patchwork of provisions in government spending bills requiring regular renewal.“  Planned Parenthood de-funding coming soon.

The No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act (HR 7), introduced by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, makes permanent the so-called Hyde Amendment permanent. Thus far the amendment, which prohibits federal money from being used to fund abortions through Medicaid, has been subject to annual renewal.

The Charlotte Lozier Institute estimates the Hyde Amendment has saved over two million lives since it was enacted in 1976…

The No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act also removes abortion funding from Obamacare while legislators consider replacements for Obama’s signature healthcare law. LifeSiteNews

The House passed legislation on Tuesday to permanently codify existing law that bans the use of federal funds for abortion services.

Passage came one day after President Trump issued an executive action prohibiting the use of taxpayer funds for nongovernmental organizations that provide abortion services or support abortion rights.

It also falls three days before the annual March for Life to protest the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which had its 44th anniversary over the weekend.

Lawmakers approved the measure largely along party lines, with three Democrats joining Republicans in the 238-183 vote.

The legislation, written by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), would also permanently prohibit the District of Columbia from using its local funds approved by Congress for abortion services.

It does allow exceptions for cases of rape, incest or if the mother’s life in danger…

Republicans argued that approving legislation to permanently ensure federal taxpayer dollars aren’t used for abortion services would be a more efficient way of codifying the existing law, which is comprised of a patchwork of provisions in government spending bills requiring regular renewal.“That’s what we should be all about. Life affirming and the saving of human life,” said Smith, the bill’s author.

“That’s what we should be all about. Life affirming and the saving of human life,” said Smith, the bill’s author. TheHill
