Jaylene Daugherty Romero, one of the peaceful protesters at Planned Parenthood Bixby Clinic in Los Angeles, shared an amazing story. At this clinic, a security guard was “overcome with emotion by the attrocities [sic] happening to our littlest of neighbors in the womb today. He called his boss and quit over the phone.”
Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the abortionist featured in the first Center for Medical Progress video, is the associate medical director of Planned Parenthood’s Los Angeles affiliate. But the story doesn’t end there.
On Monday, August 24, Live Action and Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) sent a letter to California’s top government officials. The letter described the likely illegal actions of Planned Parenthood and StemExpress, as recorded in the Center for Medical Progress’ seventh video.
The video recorded the testimony of Holly O’Donnell, a StemExpress whistleblower who detailed her experience working for StemExpress in the San Jose Planned Parenthood clinic. O’Donnell was instructed by her supervisor to use scissors to cut open the face of a baby boy to harvest its brain. After an attempted abortion, this baby boy was born alive, as evidenced by his beating heart. Nevertheless, the boy was not provided with the medical care required under law. Instead, he was killed, after being born alive.
Mindy Raelynne Danison has suffered through two tragic miscarriages – one with the baby at seven weeks, and the other at eight weeks and five days. In response, Mindy created a Facebook photo album for each child, where she publicly celebrates their short, but much-loved lives. Mindy’s photos – especially one of Annabelle – have been shared on social media, and Mindy has expressed her desire for many to see her tiny babies. Their humanity could not be more obvious.
For more information on the development of babies at this stage – including amazing videos, ultrasounds, and photos – see The Endowment for Human Development. Eighty nine percent of abortions occur in the first trimester, when many babies look just like Riley and Annabelle. At only seven to eight weeks old, babies can touch their faces and their feet. At this stage of gestation, preborn babies can squint and roll over, and their hindbrain “presents striking resemblance to that of the newborn.”
In an August 20 email to supporters, NARAL has taken the tactic of – you guessed it – blatantly lying. Of course, there’s not much that can be said in defense of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry in general, when they and their cohorts have been caught on tape breaking the law, harming women, and killing babies who were born alive.
Yet NARAL tries, and in the process, lies. Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America writes:
Every dollar in public funding that gets cut from Planned Parenthood means less money for cancer screenings, HIV testing, and a whole range of health services that women–especially low-income women–rely on.
Except the actual truth is that every single dollar in public funding will absolutely stay with women’s healthcare. It will just leave the coffers of Planned Parenthood.
Hours ago, USA Today printed an op-ed by Senator Ted Cruz, one of the top-tier GOP presidential candidates. Cruz is known for speaking the truth and shooting straight with the American people.
The op-ed is titled simply: “Cruz: End Planned Parenthood funding.” An experienced attorney who was personally asked by the U.S. Supreme Court to argue before the Court – a high honor – Cruz asserts that “accounting gimmicks can’t hide the fact that federal support ultimately pays for abortion.”
The seventh and most shocking Planned Parenthood video yet was released by the Center for Medical Progress. Whistleblower Holly O’Donnell describes how a born-alive baby boy was put to death outside his mother’s womb in a flagrantly illegal and sadistic manner.
Though his heart pulsed with life, a medical technician at the Planned Parenthood Alameda abortion clinic in San Jose, California, used scissors to cut open his face. The purpose? To harvest his complete brain. Once the technician had started to slice open this baby boy’s face, she handed the scissors to O’Donnell, instructing her to finish opening the boy’s head and then, to pull out his brain.
The boy’s brain was sold to StemExpress. Records show that intact, complete fetal brains can be sold for at least $999.
Ann Coulter is infamous for making horrendously offensive comments. Take, for example, her unneeded opinion on Dr. Kent Brantly, the Christian doctor who risked his life to help Liberia’s Ebola patients. Coulter stated that the “Ebola doc’s condition” was “downgraded to ‘idiotic,'” writing:
If he had provided health care for the uninsured editors, writers, videographers and pundits in Gotham and managed to open one set of eyes, he would have done more good than marinating himself in medieval diseases of the Third World.
Clearly, Coulter has a major problem realizing that all human beings are equally valuable – be they “third world” citizens or preborn children. And claims that she is joking, using hyperbole, or exaggerating her actual opinion just aren’t valid here.
If the government shuts down this fall, it will be the fault of pro-abortion President Barack Obama.
It will be the fault of deceptive, human rights abuser, Planned Parenthood who, incidentally, is right now spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to target U.S. Senators. The purpose? Threatening them with the loss of their seats next November if they dare to vote a second time to defund Planned Parenthood.
Amazing, isn’t it? Planned Parenthood – who receives 41% of its budget from the taxpayers – can so easily reach into its back pocket and pull out six-figures for a “broadcast and cable ad buy” today. Yes, today.
On August 3, 2015, the U.S. Senate concluded a historical vote. For the first time in history, a majority of U.S. Senators voted to defund Planned Parenthood, America’s abortion giant. The final vote was a successful 53 to 46, yet due to the Democrats’ filibuster, the vote fell short of the 60 votes needed to pass.
While we Americans who are concerned about the rife abuses and culture of inhumane death at Planned Parenthood are winning the battle, there is a large force standing in the way: the abortion lobby.
Detailed research proves that the abortion lobby pads the pockets of lawmakers. In turn, these lawmakers are willing to stand on the Senate floor, blatantly spewing out the very same lies Planned Parenthood tells the public – all to prevent an abusive organization from being defunded.
According to publicly available federal campaign donation records, every single Senator who voted not to defund Planned Parenthood, except one, has been awarded money from the abortion giant.
On Friday, Governor Gary Herbert announced that Planned Parenthood will no longer receive federal funds in Utah from the state government. The Salt Lake Tribune reports:
Gov. Gary Herbert has ordered all state agencies to stop funneling federal funds to the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.
The federal government provides grants to Planned Parenthood, which are distributed through the Utah Department of Health. Utah law bars any organization from using state funds for abortions, and that prohibition extends to Planned Parenthood’s federal grants, Herbert said in a statement Friday afternoon. …
The governor noted that other government agencies and nonprofits will still provide education and prevention programs for sexually transmitted diseases.
