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.

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

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?

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

Video:  Pro-abortion politicians mislead women about Planned Parenthood

Politicians are claiming Planned Parenthood provides essential care for pregnant women, and should be funded by our tax dollars. But are they telling the truth? Women seeking pregnancy related services contact Planned Parenthood and cannot find the health care politicians promised them. All they find is abortion.

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

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
