Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinics
Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinics
Planned Parenthood is the largest operator of abortion clinics in the United States. It operates 820 clinics, which provide what it calls "reproductive health"—as if being pregnant were a medical problem, when in fact it means a male and female have both proved their sexual organs to be functioning just fine—and "reproductive services," which means, oddly enough, they stop reproduction.
Planned Parenthood is a rich corporation, with over one billion dollars in assets and a net profit of over eighty million dollars per year. In view of this, it seems strange that its biggest supporters are also Socialists who rail against "rich corporations" every chance they get.
Planned Parenthood would not be so wealthy and profitable if not for the fact that the federal government confiscates $350,000,000 per year from American taxpayers and gives it to Planned Parenthood. Supposedly, this money cannot be used for abortions, but it all goes into the same bank accounts and pays the same overhead. So if you believe that; I have some swampland in Florida for sale.
The Founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, had a similar philosophy to that of Adolph Hitler. She founded Planned Parenthood because of her concern that inferior races would swamp the United States with their tainted offspring.
Margaret Sanger believed in eugenics—selective breeding applied to the human race—adapted from the ideas of Charles Darwin. She wrote that the genetic makeup of blacks—and also of the poor in general—was inferior and therefore they should be sterilized or their babies aborted.
Margaret Sanger described blacks and indigents both as: "Human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning human beings who never should have been born."
Concerning the rights of the handicapped, the mentally ill and racial minorities, she wrote: "More children from the fit, less from the unfit—that is the chief aim of birth control."
In 1939, Margaret Sanger started The Negro Project—an initiative to force the sterilization of black Americans. About the extermination of blacks: "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Margaret Sanger fought for abortion rights for population control because "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
In her magazine article "Plan for Peace," Sanger outlined her strategy to eradicate those she deemed "feebleminded."
One of Sanger's greatest influences (and her lover), sexologist/eugenicist Dr. Havelock Ellis, urged mandatory sterilization of the poor as a prerequisite to receiving any public aid. The goal of eugenicists is "to prevent the multiplication of bad stocks," wrote Dr. Ernst Rudin in the April 1933 Birth Control Review (Sanger was the editor).
Another article in the same magazine exhorted Americans to "restrict the propagation of those physically, mentally and socially inadequate."
As a sidebar, Sanger promoted adultery, writing that, "A woman's physical satisfaction was more important than any marriage vow."
There are other people who believe aborting black babies benefits society. In their book The Impact of Legalized Abortion on Crime, Berkeley professors John Donohue and Steven Levitt wrote: "Given that the homicide rates of black youth are roughly nine times higher than those of white youth, racial differences in the fertility effects of abortion are likely to translate into greater homicide reductions."
So the abortion of black babies reduces crime, which the authors claim will save us $30B annually. They predict that a reduction in the abortion of black babies will result in a crime wave eighteen years later.
Abortion counselors—as they are called—are actually highly trained salespeople. The profit of the "pregnancy center" is solely from abortion. These abortion clinics sell the abortion to the pregnant girl 99 out of 100 times—a fantastic closing ratio.
They are trained to be both an authority figure, and the new best friend of the pregnant girl. They do not bring up keeping the baby, or allowing it to live and putting it up for adoption. Killing babies is how they make their living.
The pregnant girls are never told what the baby looks like, never allowed to see the baby via ultrasound, never told about the pain the baby will feel, nor told about the known physical, mental, and emotional damage done to the girls themselves.
It is never called a baby or even a fetus; it is called "a piece of tissue" or "a blood clot." But the most common words that come out of the mouths of girls in the recovery room are: "I've killed my baby." The smaller babies are ground up in the garbage disposal and medium-sized babies are flushed down the toilet.
Former directors of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have testified that they were given abortion quotas to meet.
The key issue for the Social Liberals of the Democratic Party is the right to exterminate babies in the womb—which they oddly call reproductive health. Though they are largely Feminists, they will defend male politicians who routinely use and abuse women—even those who would leave a drowning woman in a car—providing these men support unfettered abortion. And they will fiercely demonize the most accomplished career woman who is Pro Life.
Social Liberals believe that money should be confiscated from taxpayers to pay for this gruesome procedure, and that doctors and nurses should be forced to take part in this heinous killing against their will. 72 percent of Americans oppose their taxes being used to kill babies. But Social Liberals insist that every woman has a "right" to government funds for abortion.
African Americans represent 12 percent of the population in the United States, but 35 percent of all abortions. African American women, who are impregnated, terminate their child 43 percent of the time. As much as we hear about slavery and lynching, we don't hear much about the fifteen million black babies that have been slaughtered in the womb by their own mothers. The fact is that African Americans have long been the targets of abortion activists. The vast majority of Planned Parenthood abortion mills are in black communities.
To Pro-Abortion advocates, the providers of what they term a "sacred choice" are heroes. They hold a National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers, which is endorsed by the ACLU and the National Organization for Women. This is a celebration of death—funded by Ford, Hewlett Packard, Warren Buffet, and Ted Turner. Planned Parenthood is on hand to pass out free T-Shirts with the slogan "I Had an Abortion!"
The Clinton Years
President Bill Clinton put forth a failed universal health care bill that included taxpayer funded abortions for all women at all hospitals and clinics. This bill would have forced Christian doctors and nurses to participate in these horrifying procedures.
President Clinton vetoed legislation passed in both houses of Congress to ban partial-birth abortion. He also ordered the U.S. military to provide abortions to servicewomen, and provide funding to the United Nations Family Planning Administration, which meant American taxpayers were now killing babies around the world, particularly in China. Clinton justified this by stating that Abortion was a universal fundamental right of women worldwide.
Many undercover sting operations have been conducted, including some recently by a group known as Live Action, that have shown Planned Parenthood to routinely break federal and state laws with which it does not agree. It feels itself above the law.
Live Action released videos shot by secret camera that show more than a dozen Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in ten states breaking several laws. Live Action issued this statement:
"This body of visual evidence shows several alarming patterns of illegal Planned Parenthood activities including cover-up of sexual abuse of minors, statutory rape, the skirting of parental consent laws, citing unscientific and fabricated medical information to manipulate women to have abortions, and Planned Parenthood's willingness to accept donations earmarked to abort African-American babies."
Live Action members posed as leaders of an underage prostitution ring in Richmond, Va., and discovered a Planned Parenthood worker assuring them they'd find "no judgment, no sharing of information, like, uh, nothing here," at the clinic and explaining how they could go about getting a "judicial bypass" of abortion laws for girls as young as 14 or 15.
Federal law makes sexual trafficking of minors a crime punishable by a 10-year-to-life prison term. And anyone who aids or abets the crime can be punished as if he or she had committed the crime. Planned Parenthood is facing 107 criminal charges, including 23 felony charges
One reporter testified:
"When I walked into the Bloomington, Indiana Planned Parenthood clinic posing as a 13-year-old girl impregnated by a 31-year-old man, I knew what would happen -- because the same thing had happened in all the other Planned Parenthood clinics I had already visited. The counselor or nurse may acknowledge that she is required by law to report the abuse to Child Protective Services, but then assures me in the strictest confidence that she won't. Then she will coach me on how to circumvent parental notification laws by going out of state for the abortion, and tells me to lie about the boyfriend's age. Ultimately, I am promised an abortion and sent out the clinic door--back to the 'boyfriend'."
Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinics
American taxpayers provide 35 percent of the annual budget of Planned Parenthood. Another 15 percent comes from fees charged to expectant mothers to provide the abortions.
Planned Parenthood kills 360,000 unborn babies per year-- 27 percent of all the unborn babies killed in America each year. 26 percent of the females who undergo the "procedure" are teenagers.
Planned Parenthood has filed countless lawsuits against state legislatures that have passed laws restricting abortion in any way. It has fought against laws that require abortion providers to notify a child's parents before they kill the baby—even though you cannot give a child an aspirin with parental consent. It has fought against laws that require a married woman to notify—not get approval from—the father of the child that it exists and will be or has been exterminated.
It has fought against laws that require a mere 24 hour cooling off period—obviously afraid of lost revenue from females changing their minds in just one day of reflection. It has fought against laws that require a pregnant female be shown an ultrasound of what the baby looks like before they kill it. It has successfully fought and overturned the original law installed by judicial fiat by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 in Roe v. Wade that limited abortion to the first 90 days of pregnancy.
It has fought against laws that prohibit killing the baby if it is mature enough to live outside the womb on its own (viability).
In one of my previous Hubs I included photographs that educate the unknowing by showing aborted babies. This Hub was removed from HubPages and I was told that pictures of aborted babies was pornographic and therefore not allowed. I find it odd that the procedure is hailed as a great thing but pictures of the results of the procedure met with censorship.
