“Could it be that Richards is getting out while she can, before indictments are handed down?” wonders Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “Or could it be that Planned Parenthood now sees her as a liability with all her connections to others under criminal investigation such as Hillary Clinton, the beleaguered Clinton Foundation, and Fusion GPS?
Cecile Richards was the most devoted practitioner of Planned Parenthood’s ‘out of sight, out of mind’ mantra to cover up their barbaric abortion business
Susan B. Anthony List mourns the fact that 3.8 million unborn babies lost their lives at Planned Parenthood under Richards’ leadership. The pro-life group notes that while abortions were up 21 percent during that time, other services decreased: cancer screenings (down 67%), breast exams (60%), and pap tests (74%). Full Article
David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress said in a statement that after his video series led to multiple congressional investigations, Richards’ decision to step down “shows that the old strategy is no longer working as Planned Parenthood faces federal criminal investigation for selling aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains.” Full Article
In spite of Richards’ efforts to paint Planned Parenthood as not primarily centered on abortion, its latest financial report shows it killed 321,384 unborn children last year, the source of the vast majority of the abortion giant’s profits, which increased by 27 percent — from $77.5 million in 2015 to $98.5 million in 2017. The group also took in $544 million in taxpayer funding. Full Article
Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept. “Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identify as pro-choice. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.” Full Article
“Today, Planned Parenthood dropped the mask and showed how extreme their abortion business really is,” the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the organization that exposed Planned Parenthood organ harvesting, said in a statement. Its abortion program “is the largest the country but…they claim is ‘only 3%’ of their business. When asked to choose between full-spectrum, mainstream healthcare for women and families, or late-term abortions and selling baby body parts, Planned Parenthood chose the latter.” Full Article
The marketing of Planned Parenthood as a magnanimous and comprehensive health care provider for untold scores of women who will otherwise never see a real doctor and thus die of cancer … it’s all a lie. Women have thousands of other options – and far better ones.
The mission of Planned Parenthood is not cancer screenings. It’s abortion. If tomorrow Planned Parenthood could no longer commit abortions, they would close their doors. It’s that simple. The organization exists for the purpose of profiting from abortions. And at least now Cecile is finally admitting it. She wants that half a billion in taxpayer dollars, all right, but to keep it she’s not about to melt down Planned Parenthood’s golden calf. Its mission is abortion. Full Article
It also gives benefits for parents who chose to stay-at-home with their children. Donald Trump has unveiled a major policy proposal that would give a tax break to stay-at-home mothers with young children, a policy sought by some pro-family advocates for decades. Full article at Lifesitenews.com
Clinton offers no incentives for stay-at-home parents, something critics view as an intentional sleight. “The Democrats, under the influence of the feminist bloc, don’t want to give any recognition to stay at home parenting, because they fear – rightly so – that women may like it,” Dr. Allan C. Carlson of the Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society told LifeSiteNews in 2012.
Mr. Trump’s plan differs significantly from that of Hillary Clinton, who has long said she subscribes to the philosophy that “it takes a village to raise a child.”
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards blasted Trump’s plan on Twitter, calling it “ridiculous” That inspired a number of outraged reactions. “Why do you care?” asked Jeff Dunetz, who goes by the Twitter handle @yidwithlid. “You want the babies ripped out of their moms so you can sell their parts.”
