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
“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.”

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

In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. CNS News
The abortion rate for black in NYC was 63.4 per 1,000 females age 15-44 in 2013.
The birth rate for blacks in NYC was 12.7 per 1,000 females in 2013.
Total Black Pregnancies: 56,165
Total Viable Black Pregnancies: 53,115…
In other words, for every 1 Black baby born, 1.2 Black babies are aborted in New York City.
To bring additional perspective to the impact of abortion in the Black-American community in New York City, every day there are 66 Black babies born and 79 Black babies aborted in The Big Apple. Christian Newswire
Planned Parenthood has filed a civil lawsuit against David Daleiden, Troy Newman, and the Center for Medical Progress, the organization that caught the abortion company selling aborted baby parts and fully intact aborted babies for profit.
In an effort to silence the truth about their illegal selling of baby body parts for profit, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and several California Planned Parenthood affiliates have filed a lawsuit naming Troy Newman, David Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress, and several others as defendants.This lawsuit is similar to one filed last August by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) in an attempt to prevent the public, prosecutors, legislators, and other government officials from gaining access to evidence of abortion providers admitting to various criminal acts.
“Planned Parenthood lawsuits will not make me quit! I have read too many autopsy reports of women they have murdered, I have held the remains of babies they butchered, I have read the lies they spew in depositions, and I have witnessed their gruesome crimes against humanity. Nothing short of my life will stop me from the relentless pursuit of the truth to expose the barbaric bloodshed of Planned Parenthood. I will not stop, I will not relent. May God empower me to fight this treachery of human life to my last breath.” — Troy Newman, President, Operation Rescue ChristianNewsWire
Glamour magazine named Bruce Jenner, a transgender man “woman of the year” now has named Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards one of the recipients of its “2015 Women of the Year”. Appalling.
Glamour magazine calls Richards a “Health Advocate.” After those undercover videos revealed top Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of aborted baby parts perhaps the category should be “Business” .
Sue Ellen Browder, author of Subverted:
“I understand why Glamour magazine editors are trying to defend what they consider their ‘right’ to abortion by naming Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards one of the recipients of its ‘2015 Women of the Year’ awards,” Browder said. “These editors sincerely believe, as I once foolishly believed when I was a pro-choice writer for Cosmopolitan magazine, that they are defending truth and justice for women, but they’re not.
Pro-life feminists who see Planned Parenthood’s abortion business for the betrayal of women it truly is are appalled at Glamour’s failure to recognize the freedom of a woman to be a mother, whatever her situation or circumstances. I would like to remind both Planned Parenthood and its apologists at Glamour that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger called abortion ‘barbaric’ — and she was right.” ChristianNewsWire
I do not think Glamour magazine understands what an outstanding woman is.
The 11th video from the Center for Medical Progress shows Planned Parenthood in Austin, TX abortion doctor Dr. Amna Dermish, describing a partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term fetuses which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.
The eleventh video release from The Center for Medical Progress in the ongoing Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal shows the abortion doctor for Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas. Amna Dermish is caught on tape describing a partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term unborn babies which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.
Dermish admits she was trained by the Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Dr. Deborah Nucatola. Nucatola was caught on video in the very first video CMP released.
“My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact,” says Dermish, speaking to actors posing as a fetal tissue procurement company. Dermish admits that she will sometimes use ultrasound guidance to convert a 2nd-trimester fetus to a feet-first breech presentation: “Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers, so at that point I’ll switch to breech.” LifeNews
Planned Parenthood, a non-profit, backs candidates running for political office who support and defend abortion. Planned Parenthood receives roughly $500 million in annual federal funding. The money goes both ways. The largest political group receiving campaign donations from Planned Parenthood is the Democratic political party.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, during the 2014 election cycle, PP gave $892,000 to Democrats and $3,100 to Republicans. The 2012 election cycle was even more generous to the Democrats, with $1.2 million to Dems compared to $26,600 to GOPers. The Blaze
Recipients of Planned Parenthood campaign donations- Federal Candidates, 2014
Donations were during the 2014 election cycle. The Center for Responsive Politics has a two page list.

A new forensic analysis of the 10 videos the Center for Medical Progress released exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business apparently illegally selling aborted babies and their body parts for profit finds “no evidence of manipulation” despite claims from the abortion company and Democrats that they were heavily edited…
Now, a legal group Alliance Defending Freedom has obtained the services of cybersecurity and forensic analysis company Coalfire Systems to examine each of the 10 videos CMP released to determine if they were manipulated in any way. According to a news report, the extensive report finds answer is no and the only edits in the videos consisted of bathroom breaks and time eating meals.
“This conclusion is supported by the consistency of the video file date and time stamps, the video timecode, as well as the folder and file naming scheme,” the report states. “The uniformity between the footage from Investigator 1’s camera and Investigator 2’s camera also support the evidence that the video recordings are authentic.” The report also confirms that “edits made to the Full Footage videos [for the shorter YouTube videos] were applied to eliminate non-pertinent footage, such as restroom breaks, meals, and other similar periods lacking pertinent conversation.”
“The Coalfire forensic analysis removes any doubt that the full length undercover videos released by Center for Medical Progress are authentic and have not been manipulated,” ADF Senior Counsel Casey Mattox said in a statement.
“Analysts scrutinized every second of video recorded during the investigation and released by CMP to date and found only bathroom breaks and other non-pertinent footage had been removed. Planned Parenthood can no longer hide behind a smokescreen of false accusations and should now answer for what appear to be the very real crimes revealed by the CMP investigation.”
“American taxpayer money should be redirected to fund local community health centers and not subsidize a scandal-ridden, billion-dollar abortion business,” Kerri Kupec, legal communications director for Alliance Defending Freedom said in a statement. LifeNews
That pesky fact of “no manipulation” of the videos eliminates the excuse “edited videos” by Planned Parenthood. The new Planned Parenthood excuse is “entrapment”.
The undercover videos apparently showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the sale of fetal tissue parts were an effort to “entrap” the organization, its chief, Cecile Richards, said in combative testimony to Congress on Tuesday. WashingtonTimes
The House of Representatives voted today for legislation that would temporarily de-fund Planned Parenthood while an investigation continues into it s sale of aborted babies and their body parts.
The House voted 241 to 187 for the bill with 239 Republicans voting for the bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and 3 Democrats joining them. Three Republicans voted against the defunding bill while 183 Democrats voted against it. Republican Steve King of Iowa vote present.
Rep. Diane Black, a Tennessee Republican who is the pro-life lawmaker sponsoring the legislation and a nurse for more than 40 years, sponsored the legislation. The bill would freeze Planned Parenthood funding for one year while Congress conducts an investigation into its sales of aborted babies. The House vote would follow one the Senate had weeks ago, which saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer funding. The Senate is expected to vote soon on a second attempt to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
A new Congressional report finds that de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business — even for one year — would save “several thousand” unborn babies from the nightmare of abortion. The report also finds de-funding Planned Parenthood would save the federal government $235 million.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) talked about how Planned Parenthood is not in the business of women’s health care and is really just an abortion company. he said Planned Parenthood has “never, ever, ever done one mammogram, because they are not certified to do mammograms
“In the history of Planned Parenthood, they have never, ever, ever done one mammogram, because they are not certified to do mammograms. They bring people in and refer them out to get their mammograms. So, for those of us –like in my case, three daughters and a wife of 37 years –look, I want good women’s healthcare. So, let’s fund it,” he said. “But, let’s give it directly to the facilities that will do the mammograms and not Planned Parenthood – for them to take their cut.” LifeNews
Planned Parenthood discussing the for-profit selling of aborted baby parts as a “valid exchange” for a “fair amount of income.”
The 10th video by The Center for Medical Progress features several top-level Planned Parenthood executives discussing the organization’s secretive practices around aborted fetal parts harvesting…
The video opened with Dr. Carolyn Westoff, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Medical Advisor, revealing her role in harvesting aborted baby parts to an actor posing as a tissue buyer.
“We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” she said, “Oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.” LifeNews
The new video also offers a look into how Planned Parenthood is breaking federal law, which technically prohibits the sale of aborted babies and their body parts by preventing sellers from making a profit on the “donations” of aborted baby body parts for research.
CMP has also released the full, unedited footage of the comments from Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director of the organization’s Consortium of Abortion Providers, describing the harvesting of fetal body parts as “donation for remuneration.” VanDerhei gives Planned Parenthood’s baby parts business the novel categorization of “donation for remuneration” even though remuneration implies payment as a reward or financial benefit.

Planned Parenthood in three states- Iowa, Montana, Missouri – has been sent $1 million in grants to promote ObamaCare. Planned Parenthood is under investigation by Congress and many states for selling aborted baby tissue. A business under congressional and state investigations should not receive grants.
The chapters were among 100 recipients of $67 million in so-called “navigator” grants doled out by the Obama administration Wednesday to nonprofits in 34 states that help people get covered under the Affordable Care Act.
Two thirds of the recipients had received grants in previous years, and a pair of the Planned Parenthood chapters — Planned Parenthood of the Heartland in Iowa and Intermountain Planned Parenthood in Montana — also received funding in 2013 and 2014.
Wednesday’s navigator announcement said the Iowa chapter will receive $304,373 to cover 77 counties, the Montana chapter will get $337,555 to focus on rural groups, including American Indians.
In Missouri, the Planned Parenthood of St. Louis will receive $388,787, particularly to reach minority groups and Latinos, Bosnian and Vietnamese populations with limited English proficiency.
In response to questions about Wednesday’s award, a spokesman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the nonprofits were selected through a competitive grant process based on factors outlined in a Funding Opportunity Announcement, or “FOA.” Washington Times
The grants to Planned Parenthood sparked GOP fury.
Republican lawmakers blasted the funding, some saying it’s “unconscionable” in light of nine undercover videos released by anti-abortion activist group Center for Medical Progress purporting to expose the organization’s selling of aborted fetuses. Some GOP leaders have called for the organization to be completely defunded.
“A growing body of evidence suggests that Planned Parenthood broke federal law and now the Obama administration is thumbing its nose at Congress and taxpayers by using this backdoor maneuver to boost funding for the scandal-ridden abortion giant,” Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., wrote in a statement Wednesday.
The first hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 9. Planned Parenthood has indicated it intends to fully cooperate with the investigations. UPI
