Democrats Defeat Senate Effort to De-Fund Planned Parenthood After It Sells Aborted Babies

Senate Democrats today defeated an effort to revoke taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business by filibustering the bill and preventing a vote on it. Republicans were unable to secure the 60 voted needed to invoke cloture and stop debate on the bill, allowing an up or down vote.

Extract (links not included):
. . . The Senate voted 53-46 on the cloture motion — failing to get the 60 votes needed to stop the Democratic filibuster against the de-funding measure. had the cloture vote been approved and the bill passed, and should the House pass its own bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, President Barack Obama said he would veto the measure.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine voted to allow a vote on de-funding Planned Parenthood but indicated she would vote no on the de-funding bill itself. Pro-abortion Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted for cloture as well along with Democrats Donnelly of Indiana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Republican Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois was the only Republican to vote against the de-funding effort while pro-life Senator Lindsey Graham, who supports de-funding Planned Parenthood, missed the vote to campaign for president.

With the Senate voting against de-funding, attention now turns to attempts to de-fund Planned Parenthood via the budget process. Already, 18 House Republicans have said they will not allow passage of any essential bills to fund the federal government if such bills do not include language de-funding Planned Parenthood.

Attention will also now turn to Congressional and state efforts to investigate Planned Parenthood’s sale of body parts from aborted babies and state-level efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood further.

. . . A total of 12 states have already launched an investigation including South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana and members of Congress have launched an investigation as well.  Read More @ LifeNews.com

All Federal Funding of Planned Parenthood Should Be Stopped

by Norm Beznoska Jr., Contribution Author: Pray tell pro-choicers, what does the "illegal Harvesting and selling" of an unborn child's body parts by Planned Parenthood have to do with a woman's "right to choose, or her health? It is horrific enough the child is ripped from its mother's womb, and then it is torn "limb from limb' by the butchers of Planned Parenthood to sell to the highest bidder in direct violation of Federal law, 42 U.S. Code § 274e - Prohibition of organ purchases, a felony.


Cecil The Lion tragedy has the outrage while
barely a whimper on Planned Parenthood
harvesting and selling baby body parts.

Editorial Cartoon by AF "Tony' Branco
What is even more telling of today's inhumane American society, is the outcry by the news media over the travesty and death of a lion in Zimbabwe, by another 'butcher', but little media coverage of Planned Parenthood's version of Hitler and the Nazis "Final Solution."

Not only should all federal funding of Planned Parenthood be stopped, but this organization be investigated for the crimes they are committing against humanity daily.

To those who support these barbaric and inhuman practices in the name of "choice," you would do well to remember the words in Matthew 25:40: "And the King will answer them, Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me."

Planned Parenthood: Tear Down This Wall!

baby in womb
by Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison, Contributing Authors, ARRA News Service: President Reagan went to West Berlin in 1987 and called upon Soviet Communist ruler Mikhail Gorbachev to “Tear Down this Wall.” The President was also working against a near-total blackout of Western media coverage of the Berlin Wall. As former PBS news anchor Robert MacNeil said at the Newseum in 2009, the only time mainstream reporters covered the Berlin Wall was when U.S. Presidents—JFK and Reagan—went there. Then they had to.

No wonder President Reagan also endorsed Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s first film of an actual abortion, Silent Scream. Because he believed in the power of truth, Reagan sent a copy of this powerful video to every congressional office.

Today, we have another Berlin Wall. It’s the wall that keeps the media from covering stories about Planned Parenthood’s activities. A series of sensational videos have been released by the investigative journalists at Center for Medical Progress (CMP). These videos clearly demonstrate that Planned Parenthood has been trafficking in the organs of unborn children after they have been killed. Hearts, lungs, livers. “It’s a boy,” says one of the abortionists as this slain child’s mutilated body is dissected on a lighted dish.

But Planned Parenthood tells frightened young women it’s only a “mass of tissue.” It’s only “products of conception.” Even their own abortionists know that’s a lie.

“We look forward to the facts coming out,” said Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards to ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos. But does she? Is that why she hired a top flight PR firm to suppress media coverage of the scavenging of babies’ organs?

As the online source, The Federalist, notes, liberals are boasting about Planned Parenthood’s high priced PR flacks. These slick managers of the news will discourage media outlets “from airing the story.” Well, they have a lot of experience in suppressing the truth, don’t they?

But there are cracks appearing in the wall. What is Camille Paglia saying on Salon but “Tear Down this Wall”? She is an honest liberal. We need more people willing to stand up and speak out like this:

Now let me give you a recent example of the persisting insularity of liberal thought in the media. When the first secret Planned Parenthood video was released in mid-July, anyone who looks only at liberal media was kept totally in the dark about it, even after the second video was released. But the videos were being run nonstop all over conservative talk shows on radio and television. It was a huge and disturbing story, but there was total silence in the liberal media. That kind of censorship was shockingly unprofessional. The liberal major media were trying to bury the story by ignoring it. Now I am a former member of Planned Parenthood and a strong supporter of unconstrained reproductive rights. But I was horrified and disgusted by those videos and immediately felt there were serious breaches of medical ethics in the conduct of Planned Parenthood officials. But here’s my point: it is everyone’s obligation, whatever your political views, to look at both liberal and conservative news sources every single day. You need a full range of viewpoints to understand what is going on in the world.

What Camille Paglia probably does not know is the history of racism and eugenics that Margaret Sanger brought to her work at Planned Parenthood. As our Family Research Council colleague, Arina Grossu has written in the Washington Times, Planned Parenthoods founder Sanger was an early suppressor of the truth, she told her cohorts in 1939: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…”

Why should Americans’ tax dollars go to paying slick PR firms that help suppress media coverage? Why should we be paying for abortionists who dissect the bodies of their victims? Federal law prohibits direct payment for the actual abortions, but skilful accountants could easily cover up the cold-blooded negotiation of fees for the organs of Planned Parenthood’s victims—as documented by CMP’s videos. They could label this encounter “staff training” or “continuing education” and get it paid for by unsuspecting American taxpayers. Why should we support an outfit that can afford to pay Cecile Richards’ $523,616 annual salary?

It’s time to stop funding this evil enterprise. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has a bill to do just that. Killing is not charity. And death is certainly not educational. Stop paying for Planned Parenthood’s lies now. Tear down their wall of silence.

ABC Covers Cecil the Lion 15x More Than Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted HUMAN Babies & Baby Parts

Imagine if ABC’s news shows covered the videos exposing Planned Parenthood 15 times more than they actually did. But, to ABC executives, a taxpayer-funded abortion giant harvesting aborted baby parts (and allowing babies  Read More

Editor'a Note:  Cecil the Lion was killed by a hunter; But at Planned Parenthood, babies were killed by Doctors.  Doctors who took "The Hippocratic Oath" which includes: "Nor shall any man's entreaty prevail upon me to administer poison to anyone; neither will I counsel any man to do so. Moreover, I will give no sort of medicine to any pregnant woman, with a view to destroy the child." How can murder be an allowed profession!

Is Planned Parenthood Selling “Fully Intact” Babies Born Alive and Left to Die?

Ask Yourself: If you were to do this would you be charged with a crime, possibly murder? Most likely yes! So why is Planned Parenthood allowed to do so? Where are the police? Where are the DA/prosecutors? When will this genocide cease in America?

In an interview with CNN this morning, the pro-life advocate behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research made a startling claim. The claim makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die.  Read More # LifeNews.com

Your Chance to Help Defund Planned Parenthood

CitizenLink: You’ve seen the videos. And you know that Planned Parenthood is by far America’s largest abortionist. Now, you have a chance to help take a step toward stopping the half-billion taxpayer dollars that go to Planned Parenthood every year.
On Monday, the U.S. Senate will vote on S. 1881, a bill to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood. The great news is that 44 senators have signed on as co-sponsors. But pro-abortion senators will filibuster the bill, which means that we’ll need 60 votes to break the filibuster and pass the bill.

That’s why it’s so critical that senators hear from constituents like you. Please use our Action Center to call or email your senators so you can urge them to support S. 1881. We've listed the co-sponsors below for your convenience. If either of your senators have co-sponsored the bill, be sure to thank them when you call or email.

Finally, be sure to pray for this effort, and pass this along to friends and family so they can also take a stand for the unborn.

Thanks for making your voice heard.

Simba-lism . . .

ARRA News Service - . . . Cecil The Lion tragedy has the outrage spotlight while barely a whimper on Planned Parenthood harvesting and selling baby body parts.
Editorial Cartoon by AF "Tony" Branco
As reported by The Federalist: Planned Parenthood Begs Media: Stop Covering Our Scandal. In summary:
How bad is the baby organ trafficking story for Planned Parenthood? So bad that the nation’s largest abortion provider has hired a pricey PR firm to bully media outlets into not covering the scandal. According to Politico, Planned Parenthood hired Democratic megafirm SKDKnickerbocker to handle its public relations effort surrounding the widening organ trafficking scandal. In a series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, multiple top Planned Parenthood executives are captured haggling over the prices of aborted baby body parts and discussing ways to maximize money earned through the harvesting and sale of human organs. Unsurprisingly, preventing coverage of the videos is apparently key to Planned Parenthood’s survival strategy: "The group circulated a memo to reporters and producers late Monday that discouraged them from airing the undercover videos, arguing that they were obtained under false identification and violated patient privacy."
BREAKING: New Undercover Video Reveals Planned Parenthood Willing to Sell Organs From Delivered BabiesKatie Pavlich reports, "The Center For Medical Progress has released a fourth undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Vice President of the Rocky Mountains and Medical Director Dr. Savita Ginde discussing how babies that are "delivered before procedure," aka born alive, are used to harvest "intact" organs. . . .

"Further, the video reveals Planned Parenthood officials want to be contact with each other at different abortion clinics throughout the country in order to coverup organ harvesting and to make sure everyone is "on the same page" should anything come under scrutiny. Ginde also talks multiple times about how to evade the law and says they have a good attorney to deal with any legal issues. . . ."

Why the Media Should Ignore Planned Parenthood’s Advice and Report on Undercover Videos

by Genevieve Wood:  In the case of the unfolding scandal involving the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, much of the mainstream media have fallen for the old line, “Nothing to see here.”

And now we find out perhaps one reason why is that Planned Parenthood has hired a major crisis PR firm to make sure the news media stay on the sidelines of what is clearly a newsworthy story.

According to Politico:
The group circulated a memo to reporters and producers late Monday that discouraged them from airing the undercover videos, arguing that they were obtained under false identification and violated patient privacy.

Those patients’ privacy should not be further violated by having this footage shared by the media,’ the memo reads.
ere’s the problem: as anyone who has watched the third video knows, there are no patients shown in the video.

No, what Planned Parenthood would presumably like to keep private are the scenes of a lab technician dissecting a baby’s body parts in a pie dish. They would prefer you not hear the laughter of a Planned Parenthood medical assistant as she exclaims that the tissue they are looking at gets “five stars.” (That can be heard and seen at 9:48 in the third video.)

They would prefer you not hear the comments made by a Planned Parenthood doctor in the video, who, when discussing the costs of individual fetal organs and tissue, says, “I think a per item fee works a little better, just so we can see how much we can get out of it.” (That can be viewed at 10:41 in the video.)

They also don’t want people to see the documents from a biomedical company that some Planned Parenthood affiliates have partnered with that advertises the “financial profits” that can be gained by working with them and that expressly states they “fiscally reward[] clinics.” (You can see these documents at 1:38 in the video and hear them being discussed at 3:09.)

They are hoping you won’t see the Planned Parenthood doctor from an earlier video featured here again, haggling over the price for fetal body parts as she jokes, “I want a Lamborghini.” (That little gem can be found at 5:45 in the video.)

And they certainly don’t want people to see the tiny little arm, the hand and five fingers of a dismembered almost 12-week-old unborn baby in the pie dish. (It is hard to view, but you can do so at 10:22 in the video.)

So, yes, Planned Parenthood is concerned about privacy. Its own.

I thought news organizations wanted to expose cover-ups. Usually, when there is even a hint of scandal, reporters are knocking down the door to get answers. But apparently they are a little less interested in investigative journalism that could bring down one of the sacred cows of the left.

And if the media blackout wasn’t enough, now a California court has issued a temporary restraining order to prevent any more videos featuring employees of the lab seen in this third video from being released to the public.

You know what that means—Planned Parenthood and the lab clinics it has been teaming up with are fearful of further exposure of their supposedly legal activities. And that’s the crux of the matter—if they have nothing to hide, what’s the big deal?

Thankfully, the mainstream media is not what it used to be, and we the people have tools we didn’t use to have. No fat-cat PR firm is going to intimidate me from sharing this story and these videos with friends and neighbors. I hope you’ll do the same.
