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 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

The White House released a statement saying, “the Administration strongly supports H.R. 7…if the President were presented with H.R. 7 in its present form, he would sign the bill.”  LifeSiteNews

Abortions Have Dropped 43% Since 1990

Great, numbers dropping.  But still too many.

The Guttmacher Institute’s long-awaited new report hit the Internet this morning and the bottom line is wonderful news (unless you are Guttmacher): There were 926,200 abortions in 2014, the lowest figure of babies lost since 1974!

Compare that with 1990 when there 1.6 million abortions and the incredible impact of your legislative, educational, and political efforts is undeniable. Even Guttmacher concedes “the wave of abortion restrictions passed at the state level over the last five years could also have contributed to the decline by making it more difficult for women to access needed services in highly restrictive states,” according to Rachel Jones and Jenna Jerman.

Highlights of the report:

There were 32,500 fewer abortions in 2014 than in 2013: 926,000 versus 958,200. The latest figure is a 12.5% drop from 2011 when Guttmacher reported 1.06 million abortions.

· “The decrease was spread nationwide; in only six states did abortions increase over the three-year span,” according to David Crary of the Associated Press.

· As you would expect, the abortion rate (the number of abortions per 1,000 women ages 15-44) was the lowest since 1973: 14.6/1,000.

· “The highest abortion rates were in the District of Columbia, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Florida,” Crary reports. “The lowest rates were in Wyoming, Mississippi and South Dakota, states that had only one abortion clinic operating in 2014.”

So, how can an abortion number that has dropped by roughly 43% since 1990–where 673,800 fewer unborn babies are dying–not be universally hailed? Leave it to Guttmacher, the Abortion Industry’s think-tank, to find reasons for gloom.  LifeNews

Paul Ryan On Defunding Planned Parenthood At CNN Town Hall Meeting

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday (1/12) was at a CNN town hall meeting, a question about Planned Parenthood was asked by a female college student.

 “I can tell you personally that Planned Parenthood provided help when I couldn’t go to anybody else.  So my question for you is: If Planned Parenthood is defunded, then where will millions of women, low-income groups, and people like me go?”


Paul Ryan spoke about shifting federal funds to community health centers (CHCs).  There are more CHCs than Planned Parenthood buildings.  CHCs offer many of the same services as Planned Parenthood, minus the abortions.

Moderator Jake Tapper tried to fact-check Paul Ryan, telling him that existing law prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. But, Ryan argued, “money’s fungible, and it effectively floats these organizations.”

Planned Parenthood can spend taxpayer money on abortions despite federal law prohibitions.

Fungible:  replaceable by another identical item, mutually interchangeable. (Oxford Dictionary)

How Planned Parenthood can use federal funds for abortions.

In account NA Planned Parenthood has funds earmarked for business expenses, rent, insurance, payroll, etc…

Federal funds arrive and are put into account NA.  That is a non-abortion account.

But Planned Parenthood can take funds from account NA that were for business expenses and shift those funds to account AB, account AB funds abortions.  The government funds in account NA can pay business expenses.

Now they have additional money to fund abortions.  They would not have those extra funds for abortions without receiving government funds.

Fetal Tissue Broker StemExpress Drops Lawsuit Against Center Of Medical Progress

David Daleiden heads the Center for Medical Progress, that released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating plans for selling aborted baby body parts.

StemExpress, a fetal tissue broker that purchased aborted babies from Planned Parenthood and then sold them for a profit, today filed a notice of dismissal in its suit against Daleiden…

Daleiden’s 8th video showed StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer discussing the purchase of fetal body parts from Planned Parenthood. In this video, Dyer notes the importance of ensuring profitability for abortion providers. She can also be seen laughing as she describes the procedure for shipping the babies’ bodies so as not to alarm the recipients who will see their intact faces.

StemExpress sold the parts to universities and research facilities at a substantial markup. The body parts broker has been referred to the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice for investigation and possible criminal prosecution for its role in the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts.

In August, McDermott, Will and Emery, the high-priced Chicago-based law firm that represented StemExpress inexplicably withdrew from the case over Dyer’s objections.

“Life Legal is thrilled that StemExpress has dropped its meritless lawsuit,” said Alexandra Snyder, Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. “We have always maintained that the allegations raised in the lawsuit were baseless and that the suit was only filed to punish David Daleiden for exposing the truth about the StemExpress’ role in the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts.”

Life Legal continues to defend Daleiden in two other lawsuits filed against him by the National Abortion Federation and Planned Parenthood. ChristianNewsWire

Planned Parenthood And Affiliates Cost Taxpayers At Least $12 Million In Fraud

CLI used data from state and external audits.

According to a new report examining audits of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates in multiple states, the nation’s largest abortion provider and locations which work with it have cost taxpayers at least $12.8 million in fraud.

“The extent of waste and abuse in the nation’s family planning programs, and specifically in those operated by Planned Parenthood, is beyond disturbing,” Chuck Donovan, president of the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), declared in a statement announcing the report…

According to the report, entitled “Profit. No Matter What,” written by CLI Senior Fellow Catherine Glenn Foster, audits revealed that Planned Parenthood affiliates have cost at least $12.8 million in waste, abuse, and potentially fraudulent over billing and penalties. Audits specific to Planned Parenthood facilities have uncovered $8.5 million in waste, abuse, and potential fraud, in the form of Title XIX-Medicaid overpayments.  PJMedia

A report in 2014, based on external audits and government audits also showed over-billing practices by Planned Parenthood.

“Nearly every known audit of Planned Parenthood affiliates has found overbilling,” the report said. [Alliance Defending Freedom report]

The audits found that Planned Parenthood received $8 million overpayments from Title XIX- Medicaid programs, and have “have specifically identified Planned Parenthood affiliates as the source of at least $12.6 million in waste, abuse, and potentially fraudulent overbilling of taxpayers.” In addition, state audits found that the organization overcharged at least $107 million for state family planning programs.

Non-Profit Planned Parenthood Rakes In Millions In Profit

This nonprofit is very profitable.  Planned Parenthood has donated $25 Million to Democrats since 2000.

Abortion mill Planned Parenthood has raked in a reported $700 million in profit since the tenure of CEO Cecile Richards, taking in a reported $127 million in profit annually. Yes, that would be the same “nonprofit” corporation that your tax dollars subsidize—over $500 million annually.

In October of last year, Rep. Jason Chaffetz questioned why exactly Planned Parenthood is framed as a “nonprofit” when they are clearing so much cash:

“Planned Parenthood has annual revenues of $127 million more than their expenses,” stated Chaffetz. “They were sending money overseas, they were spending money and giving it political organizations, they have a lot of shared services—I think these are legitimate questions as we look at the finances of an organization that is structured as a non-profit.”

“Why do we send money to an organization where the revenues exceed expenses by $127 million dollars annually?” he asked. “It doesn’t sound like an organization that needs to be supplemented by taxpayer dollars.”

As well known, Planned Parenthood clears such huge sums by murdering the unborn in the womb, though the corporation hilariously contends that only three percent of their “services” account for abortion, a misleading number which has been widely debunkedby even left-wing publications. DailyWire

The Virginia school acceptance of a Planned Parenthood club then there should be no problem opening a pro-life club.

A Virginia public school has allowed a Planned Parenthood student group to form on campus.

The stated purpose in the constitution and bylaws of the “Planned Parenthood Generation Action” club at Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School for Government and International Studies (MLWGS) lays it bare.

“The purpose of this club is to provide education, outreach, and advocacy opportunities at Maggie Walker to support the goals of Planned Parenthood,” it says.“It is meant to let students learn more about the issues that affect their lives, create a network with other students who support Planned Parenthood, and engage in the political process to win elections and pass pro reproductive freedom legislation.”

The first meeting of the new “Planned Parenthood Generation Action” club was scheduled for September 19, a post on the school’s Facebook page said. “Whether you are interested in health, education, or getting community service hours this election season this club is for you.” LifeSiteNews

‘Pay To Slay’: Foreign Crime Family Reached Hillary Clinton For Immigration Favors So They Could Run A Baby Parts Harvesting Business

isaiasJust when you think it could not get any slimier it does.

Planned Parenthood was the source of aborted baby remains that two Isaias family businesses sold all over the world.

 The wealthy Ecuadorian Isaias family that owns DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, which have been sued by the Orange County District Attorney’s office for illegally profiting from the sale of aborted baby tissue it obtained from Planned Parenthood, came to America under a cloud of criminal allegations and scandal.

The Isaias family, including brothers Roberto, William, and Estefano Sr., sought asylum in the U.S. in 2008, after looting millions of dollars from an Ecuadorian bank. These brothers brought with them their extended families – many of which are listed as principals of DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics.

During that time, the family gave roughly $300,000 to Democrat politicians and reached out to Hillary Clinton thru her aide, Cheryl Mills, according to the New York Times. In return, the family received favorable treatment from the Obama Administration and State Department under Clinton, which expedited their immigration into the U.S.

In 2012, Roberto and William Isaias were sentenced in abstentia to eight years in prison for bilking the impoverished country of Ecuador out of $661.5 million. Estefano Sr. was also said to have been involved in the scheme.

The Clinton-led State Department resisted numerous requests by Ecuador to extradite the Isaias brothers back to their native country to face punishment.

This protection of the Isaias fugitives strained relationships between the U.S. and Ecuador, which were already tense due to another perhaps better known fugitive. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had sought asylum from Ecuador, which has since refused U.S. demands to force him from his sanctuary inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he continues to be a thorn in the side to the Obama Administration as well as Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The Isaias family owns DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, which procured aborted baby remains from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities, which were then sold for huge mark-ups all over the world. The companies were sued earlier this month by Orange County, California, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas for illegally trafficking aborted baby remains.

“Some call the buying of influence ‘Pay to Play’ or ‘Pay to Stay.’ In the case of the Isaias family, I call it ‘Pay to Slay,'” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who served as a founding board member for the Center of Medical Progress, the group that brought the illegal, but very lucrative, market in aborted baby remains to public attention last year through a series of undercover videos.

The Isaias family continues to enjoy a wealthy high life in America, safe in the knowledge that their fortunes – made from the exploitation of their fellow human beings – have bought the influence of the Obama Administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“This is the kind of people that can buy off Hillary Clinton,” said Newman. “It makes no difference if they are criminals, flesh peddlers, and smut dealers that are exploiting American and Ecuadorian people for profit. For Clinton, if you have enough money, anything goes. This is just another reason why her brand of corruption must not be allowed into the White House.”

Alveda King spoke with televangelist Jim Bakker about  the subject of abortion.

Alveda King:  “We’re dealing with emotions in a woman, ‘I don’t feel like carrying a baby for nine months, da da da.’ Well, it’s not always about what we feel, it’s about what’s right.”

Alveda also mentioned the importance of the Supreme Court.  That is an important issue in this presidential campaign.   The next president will tip the balance of the Supreme Court and could appoint 1-5 Supreme Court Justices.

Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Receives $5 Million Gov. Grant To Target Children As Young As Five

planned-parenthoodIowa’s parents are standing against this.

The Obama Administration has put forth more than $5 million towards Planned Parenthood providing sex education to the children, some as young as 5, but pro-lifers and concerned parents are working to keep the abortion giant away from Iowa children, according to One News Now.

According to Ricky A. Rohrig of the Pregnancy Center of Southwest Iowa, Planned Parenthood was already run out of their schools several years ago after the parents realized exactly what they were teaching their young children. One News Now reported that Planned Parenthood was “graphically teaching children about condom use and using stuffed animals to demonstrate sexual positions.” Rohrig went on to say the parents “were not informed prior to their youth being taught this.” LifeNews

Planned Parenthood Expands – Offering Hormone Replacement Therapy For Transgender People

planned-parenthoodThirty-two Planned Parenthood centers in 10 states  are now offering hormone treatments for trans women and men.

“It’s not necessarily a logical connection,” Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council said. “We think of it as providing contraceptives and abortions, dealing with people who don’t want to have children or have more children – and this doesn’t fit into that.

Planned Parenthood operates on an informed consent basis, treatment is not supervised by a mental health professional.

According to the Standards of Care manual designed by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, anyone seeking a change should first be examined by a mental health professional to “assess clients’ gender dysphoria.”

Some exceptions made for “younger patients” with “a parent or guardian’s permission.”

But Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council, told FoxNews.com the most severe backlash may not come from Americans who find the practice “bizarre,” but rather down the road “from clients who recognize this was not in their best interest.”…

While most patients must be at least 18 to give consent and begin treatments, there are some exceptions made for “younger patients” with “a parent or guardian’s permission,” according to the Mar Monte Planned Parenthood  website.

“I’m concerned about young people,” Sprigg said. “We’re seeing an increasing trend with minors, children being given puberty-blocking hormones to prevent them from going through the typical process of puberty in order to make it easier for them to transition to the opposite sex.”

Video: Planned Parenthood Houston Admits Accounting Gimmicks Hide Baby Parts Sales

pp2-3Planned Parenthood should be closed.

A new video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) appears to show how Planned Parenthood uses accounting gimmicks to hide profits created through the sale of body parts of aborted babies.

A financial benefit “is what staff and management need to see,” says an executive at a Planned Parenthood facility in Texas…

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), chairman of the House’s Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, said the new video footage is “deeply disturbing.”

Blackburn said in a statement:

The comments in this video by an employee of a large abortion provider are deeply disturbing and seem to demonstrate a willingness to obfuscate and hide their true intentions. The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives is examining these issues and this new video, once again, raises more questions about the medical procedures and business practices used by entities involved in fetal tissue procurement. Our panel intends to follow the facts where they lead us. BreitBart
