the siege of planned parenthood

Have you all heard of the organization called "Live Action"?

Here's a BRILLIANT piece of their propaganda.
Yes, these people DO vote.
(scary right?)

They're a leading PRO-LIFE group and what they have is something that is unfortunately working.  They are headed by the brainwashed Youth of America.

I hate to admit it but The Radical Right Wing really does have something going for them at this moment in time.  No longer are the days of only ugly-middle age men in robes denying women the right to choose.  Lila Rose is a beautiful, vibrant 20 year old girl and her mission: Right to Life.  

Let's not forget to mention, this is the same girl that feels Planned Parenthood's true mission is to eliminate the African American Race, or in her words....  "to "kill" as many "black babies" as possible."   


She seems to have a problem with many centers setting up a "Women in need" or "Justice" fund {designating money specifically for minority family-planning services.}  Of course she neglects to look at any facts before making a statement so extreme.

 The percentage of Minority unwanted teenage pregnancy as opposed to Caucasian unwanted teenage pregnancy is over DOUBLE {190% percent in fact.} despite, the population of Caucasian Persons in the United States being 65.1%. {source Quick Facts on Race %}

As if we didn't have enough wars going on, Live Action has facilitated the House of Representatives declaring one against Planned Parenthood Federation of America.   

There just seems to be a grand theme going on here.  Last month, they voted to repeal the health care law that would help make Birth Control more affordable for Women and Teens throughout the United States, something that would work to limit the number of unwanted teen pregnancy and abortions. 

 This month they've decided to go after an organization that provides millions of women with family-planning and basic health services. 
(I.E: pap smears, screening for diabetes, breast cancer, cervical cancer, and sexually transmitted diseases treatment & prevention.)

“What is more fiscally responsible than denying any and all funding to Planned Parenthood of America?” demanded Representative Mike Pence of Indiana, the chief sponsor against PPFA 

(I'm pretty sure it's Planned Parenthood FEDERATION of America, genius)

His Main Objective.
-to bar the government from directing any money to any organization that provides abortion services.

The problem here is Planned Parenthood doesn't use government money to provide abortions!  Congress already prohibits that, EXCEPT in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.    Planned Parenthood PAYS FOR THEIR OWN abortion services, and this is what makes them a target.    Pence already has 154 co-sponsors for his bill.  

He was helped this week by Ms. Rose of Live Action as she and her team conducted a sting operation at 12 Planned Parenthood clinics in six states, in an effort to connect the clinic staff to child prostitution.  The Responses they got from a few people working at the clinic were not up to the standard that Cecile Richards (President of Planned Parenthood) would have hoped for and subsequently the employees have been suspended or fired for their negligence.  Richards released an EPIC Press Release that everyone should check out. 

Another piece of propaganda, released by Lila herself.

{I'm PRETTY SURE that the WAR in the Middle East, Genocide in Darfur, and Conflicts in Egypt are a BIT more dangerous than a woman's womb.}

Suffice to say, sure Planned Parenthood is in a compromising situation right now due to the videos released by Live Actions but this DOES NOT in any WAY, SHAPE, or FORM undermine the GOOD that Planned Parenthood has done for  OVER 93 YEARS!  Maybe they do need more Government Regulation and Supervision (as do MANY MAJOR NONPROFITS that receive MORE a year in TAX dollars than Planned Parenthood can even dream of.)

But the sheer fact is that they are the
nation's leading sexual and reproductive health care provider 
and advocate. 

And for the 93 years they've been in existence they have worked to improve women's health and safety, prevent UNINTENDED pregnancies and advance the RIGHT and ABILITY of individuals and families to make informed and responsible choices.

People need to look deeper into those that are attacking them as their agendas are not facilitated on a clean conscience.  They are trying to take us back to a time where women had no control over their bodies.  There is still a lot to come of this situation, everyone should speak out against the opposition and stand up for this wonderful organization.
