States can now stop funding Planned Parenthood

P1000741President Trump signed into law a measure passed by Congress that would allow states to deny certain government funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

Under President Obama, Title X “family-planning grants” to states could not be denied to organizations on the basis of whether or not they performed abortions.  Thus, federal money went to Planned Parenthood not for abortions–the Hyde Amendment forbids that–but to support their other activities (as if money were not fungible).

Now states can prevent abortion providers from receiving any of the money if they so choose.

Question:  Why are taxpayers funding Title X “family-planning grants” in the first place?  Can states refuse to take them? [Read more…]

Selling abortions

Abortion is Planned Parenthood’s product.  Like other businesses, Planned Parenthood imposes sales quotas and uses sales techniques to maximize purchase of their product.

The abortion provider, which poses as a center for women’s health, gives its clinics specific quotas for the numbers of abortions they must provide or refer.   And employees learn sales pitches to manipulate women into getting abortions.

This is documented in another video from Live Action:

Planned Parenthood does NOT offer pre-natal care

Defenders of Planned Parenthood say that the organization does more than perform abortions.  It also provides a whole array of women’s health services, such as pre-natal care.   Well, no it doesn’t.

LiveAction called or visited 97 Planned Parenthood clinics, with a woman asking for pre-natal care.   In 92 cases, the woman was told, we don’t do that.  We just offer “termination services.”

You’ve got to watch this three-minute video.   More details after the jump.

Planned Parenthood won’t report child sex-trafficking?

Planned_Parenthood_in_St._PaulIn 2011, a Live Action crew posing as sex traffickers, visited a number of Planned Parenthood clinics and asked if they could arrange abortions for 14 and 15-year-old “sex workers.”  Planned Parenthood workers were caught on video saying yes, that they didn’t obey parental notification laws, and going on to give further advice.

Planned Parenthood responded by promising to provide training to its employees on identifying victims of sex-trafficking.  A new report shows that this training never happened, except for a workshop billed as such but was really on how to detect undercover video crews. [Read more…]

Macy’s drops Planned Parenthood

256px-Macy's_christmasMacy’s department store no longer funds or matches contributions to Planned Parenthood.  Neither do AT&T, Coca-Cola, Ford, and Xerox.  For a list of big corporations that still do fund the abortion provider, click the link after the jump.

We’ll see if the biggest funder of Planned Parenthood has a similar change of heart:  namely, the United States government.

Planned Parenthood’s political army

Planned Parenthood has launched a massive political initiative designed to elect politicans who are pro-abortion, will support its abortion business, and will preserve its half a billion dollars in taxpayer funding.  Plans include a super PAC, 800 paid staffers (more than Hillary Clinton has), and 3,500 paid volunteers who will be knocking on doors.

Students for Life president Kristan Hawkins tells all about it, beginning after the jump. [Read more…]
