The politician’s dirty little secret: Planned Parenthood is really a “quasi-governmental agency” (like the Post Office)

by Doug Lawrence

After the failure of LBJ’s “Great Society” welfare program, where single moms received a bigger and bigger monthly check from the government, the more children they had … so long as there was no husband/father at home … the government turned to abortion and baby-killing in order to save money by reducing the number of poor people on the government dole.

Catholic politicians hired crooked theologians to fabricate policies and excuses that would permit abortion under almost every circumstance, and most non-Catholic politicians willingly went along.

The Supreme Court did their part with the trumped up and totally phony Roe v Wade, while the Catholic hierarchy … thanks primarily to the late Cardinal Bernardin, was both complicit and almost totally negligent in their lack of a sufficient, timely, and moral response to all of the above.

Planned Parenthood was subsequently given a huge annual subsidy by the federal government, along with generous supplemental funding from many of the states. Making birth control available to the masses was said to be the official objective, but abortion on demand, across the land, was always the real goal.

Abort as many black and hispanic babies as possible
in order to cheaply and efficiently
solve the poverty problem in the United States
through attrition.

It would be several years before the American public took notice of this particular paradigm shift, and by then it had gone way too far to be stopped.

Forty years later, Planned Parenthood still receives nearly a million dollars a day in federal subsidies. Abortion is still legal, still protected and still officially sanctioned by the U.S. Government.

Even though the God-fearing Democrats are known to absolutely love abortion, this is not strictly a partisan issue.

When the the Republicans recently controlled both houses of Congress as well as the Presidency, they made no real effort to outlaw abortion. All we got were a few “feel good” incremental restrictions and a short phone call from the President, to help kick off the annual Washington, D.C. March for Life.

The current fight to defund Planned Parenthood and further restrict abortion typically goes no further than the Democrat controlled Senate , where bills quickly meet their demise in committee … and even if, by some miracle, a solid anti-abortion measure got approved by both the House and Senate … Barack Obama … the Abortion President … would surely exercise his veto privilege … in order to kill it.

In light of all these years of political play acting … by politicians of both parties … I’m willing to bet anyone … $10 … that should we ever again have a Republican controlled House, Senate, and Presidency … they will still … somehow … fail to pass a comprehensive federal ban on abortion.

Any takers?

Cong. Henry Waxman – “We want to pay for abortions.”

In an interview with Marquette, MI, radio station WKQS’ Mark & Walk morning show, Stupak described what he said was a conversation with Waxman about the Senate’s version of the health care overhaul. That bill contains weaker language than the House-passed legislation, which includes a provision crafted by Stupak to ensure insurance companies that participate in a national exchange don’t use federal money for abortion services.

“I gave him the language. He came back a little while later and said, ‘But we want to pay for abortions.’ I said, ‘Mr. Chairman, that’s where we disagree. We don’t do it now, we’re not going to start.’

“‘But we think we should,'” Stupak said Waxman told him.

Pro-Life Strength Grows in Congress and Coming Election

WASHINGTON — The voices of those taking part in the March for Life may finally be getting heard by those in the buildings they march past year after year in Washington, D.C.

In particular, their tenacity seems to be paying off in the Capitol and the Senate and House office buildings that stand near the Supreme Court, where Roe v. Wade was decided 37 years ago today.

Pro-life Republican and Democratic members of Congress believe the increasingly pro-life views of the public have finally gained traction in Congress, despite the pro-abortion views of many Democratic leaders in Congress and the administration. And abortion may be a critical issue in the mid-term elections this November.

The growing strength of the pro-life position in Congress became apparent last November when a group of 64 Democrats joined most Republicans in the House of Representatives to add an amendment to the health-care overhaul bill that barred the use of federal taxpayer funds for abortions. The vote “shocked” pro-abortion Democratic leaders in Congress, according to the namesake of the pro-life amendment.

Freedom of Choice Act Will Promote Abortion In All 50 States

Letter from Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson 

It is probably fair to say that no other single activity has defined the Knights of Columbus over the past half century as much as the pro-life movement.

Following the shock of the Supreme Court’s decision to preempt all state and federal laws regulating abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973, we launched a long-term battle to fight legalized abortion. While achieving the ultimate goal of overturning Roe remains somewhere in the future, we have been able to achieve many small successes along the way:

· the Hyde Amendment, which restricts federal funding for abortions;
· the federal law banning partial birth abortions, which was finally upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in April 2007;
· the “Mexico City Policy,” which has barred the use of federal taxpayers’ money to pay for abortions in other countries;
· laws in 44 states that preserve a parental role when children under 18 seek abortions;
· laws in 40 states that restrict late-term abortions;
· laws in 46 states that protect the right of conscience for individual health care providers;
· laws in 27 states that protect the right of conscience for institutions;
· laws in 38 states that ban partial birth abortions;
· laws in 33 states that require counseling before having an abortion;
· and laws in 16 states that provide for ultrasounds before an abortion.

All of these restrictions on abortion – all of the progress we’ve made over the past 35 years in trying to limit and reduce abortions in the United States – would be invalidated with the stroke of a pen if the next Congress passes, and the next president signs, the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA).

Before you cast your vote on Tuesday, please take the time and effort necessary to learn whether candidates for whom you might vote favor or oppose FOCA.

The House sponsors of FOCA are listed here
Obviously, if a candidate in your area is not listed among the sponsors, you may have to ask his or her campaign for their position on FOCA.

The Senate sponsors of FOCA are listed here

We have gathered much additional information about the Freedom of Choice Act, including links to material from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and on life issues generally on a special Knights of Columbus web page:
