Mike Pence: ‘We will finally defund Planned Parenthood’

Pete BaklinskiPete Baklinski Follow Pete

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 4, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — U.S. Vice President Mike Pence told a pro-life activist group last night that Congress must “repeal and replace Obamacare” as part of President Trump’s strategy to “finally defund Planned Parenthood.”

“When it comes to Obamacare, I don’t have to remind anyone in this room that this is why Obamacare has got to go,” he said during his May 3 keynote address at the Susan B. Anthony List Gala dinner in Washington, D.C.

“Despite all the promises that were made, despite the tireless work of everyone in this room to stop it so many years ago, Obamacare has allowed taxpayer money to be used to purchase health insurance that covers abortion, among all of its other failings,” he added.

Pence told the pro-lifers that President Trump remains “unwavering in his commitment to defend life and protect women and children.”

“And that commitment will be on full display this week — if you haven’t heard the news yet — because tomorrow, thanks to President Trump’s leadership, Congress is going to vote to repeal and replace Obamacare. And when they vote to repeal and replace Obamacare, we will finally defund Planned Parenthood,” he said to applause.


Planned Parenthood spent $5 million for Dems, $13k for GOP


By Barbara Borland
As Congress heads into a debate over whether to continue funds to Planned Parenthood, a Washington Examiner analysis shows that Planned Parenthood and affiliates spent almost $5 million dollars in election ads promoting Democratic lawmakers in 2014.

Additionally, Planned Parenthood has contributed $679,596 directly to federal candidates, $676,885 of that to Democrats, in 2014.

Planned Parenthood was in the top 10 percent of nearly 200 outside expenditure groups in 2014, and the analysis shows that the abortion giant spent $0 on ads attacking Democratic candidates.

In the 2014 federal elections, a landslide year for Republicans, Planned Parenthood spent nearly $3 million in ads attacking Republican candidates and an additional $1.8 million in ads promoting Democrats.

Latest Planned Parenthood Video Shows Executive Agreeing that Clinics Make a “Fair Amount of Income” from Selling Baby Bodies

by Onan Coca
How do Planned Parenthood’s (PP) supporters continue defending the monstrous actions of the obviously evil and deranged abortion organization?

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) continues to do the hard work of shedding light on PP’s many sins, and their latest undercover video continues to add to damning pile of evidence against the abortion giant. In the latest (10th) undercover video, CMP’s investigators interviewed one of PP’s top executives, recording her openly admitting that at least some of their clinics “generate a fair amount of income” from the sale of baby body parts.

PP defenders have long argued that the sale of baby body parts is not really a sale but a “transfer fee” that simply defrays the costs of “harvesting” the body parts. However, PP’s method for deciding how much each part costs puts the lie to such a defense, and now the added testimony of PP’s National Director proves what we already knew.

Planned Parenthood is most certainly profiting from the sale of baby body parts.


Planned Parenthood Cash’Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country, responsible for 327,000 abortions every year, and receives $528 million in taxpayer money each year. “From email black-outs to contorted oxymorons like ‘donation for remuneration,’ the lengths to which Planned Parenthood leadership will go to cover-up their illegal sale of aborted baby parts are nothing less than the desperation of a guilty conscience,” notes David Daleiden, Project Lead for CMP. “Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards openly admits they receive ‘$60 per tissue specimen,’ and their contracts with StemExpress offer payments per fetus ‘determined in the clinic to be usable.’ Planned Parenthood runs their abortion and baby parts business in open disregard for the law and should be prosecuted immediately. Their taxpayer funding should be reassigned to Federally Qualified Health Centers, which provide more and comprehensive health services at locations outnumbering Planned Parenthood 20 to 1.”

The video includes comments from Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director of the organization’s Consortium of Abortion Providers, describing the harvesting of fetal body parts as “donation for remuneration.”

The video highlights conversations with Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for PPFA; Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs for PPFA; and Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA.

“We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” says Dr. Westhoff to a prospective fetal organ buyer. “Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.” Westhoff continues, “Obviously, we would have the potential for a huge P.R. issue in doing this,” before offering to introduce the buyers to “national office abortion people” from Planned Parenthood.

Deborah VanDerhei is the National Director for CAPS, an influential committee within Planned Parenthood that drives abortion policy across the organization. VanDerhei refers to payments for fetal tissue as “donation for remuneration,” which carries the connotation of financial reward or benefit without regard for actual expenses. VanDerhei explains, “I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration, because the headlines would be a disaster.”

“Is this really worth getting–I don’t even know what in general, what a specimen generally brings in?” VanDerhei later asks a prospective buyer. When she is told $100 per specimen, she remarks, “But we have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this.” VanDerhei suggests that Planned Parenthood goes to great lengths to avoid leaving a paper trail about their fetal tissue activity: “It’s an issue that you might imagine we’re not really that comfortable talking about on email.”

In a conversation recorded between VanDerhei and Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, Russo argues, “A company like this that wants to give our organization money for the tissue–I think that that’s a valid exchange, and that that’s okay.” VanDerhei nods her head up and down and affirms, “Mhm.”

The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

Vanessa Cullins, the Vice President of External Medical Affairs, seems fully aware of the criminal exposure that fetal body parts sales present to Planned Parenthood: “This is important. This could destroy your organization and us, if we don’t time those conversations correctly,” she tells a prospective buyer.


Planned Parenthood Kept Aborted Babies Alive to Harvest Organs, Ex-Technician says

By Cheryl Wetzstein – The Washington Times – Wednesday, August 19, 2015
In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices.

Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
A StemExpress supervisor “gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. And I can’t even describe what that feels like,” said Ms. O’Donnell, who has been featured in earlier videos by the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that previously had released six undercover clips involving Planned Parenthood personnel and practices.

David Daleiden, the video project leader, said the undercover footage and interviews show that fetuses are sometimes delivered “intact and alive” before their organs are harvested.

The federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 says that when a child is born alive, including having a beating heart, he or she is a legal person and has a right to lifesaving medical care.

California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat, said the Center for Medical Progress, which is calling for the federal government to cease its $500 million a year support to Planned Parenthood and for it to be investigated.

“Today’s video is especially gruesome, and it shows, once again, the barbarity of what takes place at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country,” said Rep. Joseph R. Pitts, Pennsylvania Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health, one of several congressional panels investigating Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Wednesday that all the videos are “disturbing,” and his committee’s investigation will look into whether “any federal funding supported transactions involving fetal tissue.”

“Top-level employees of Planned Parenthood admit to changing their procedures to harvest intact bodies of unborn children for body-part trafficking,” said Rep. Trent Franks, Arizona Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution and civil justice.

Mr. Franks and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, also said Wednesday that they have written to 58 Planned Parenthood affiliates. They are seeking 10 years of data about all abortions, late-term abortions, “born-alive” infants, fetal tissue collections and any modifications of abortion techniques to “increase the odds of preserving intact fetal tissue and organs.”

Five states — Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Utah and New Hampshire — already have defunded Planned Parenthood.

A request for comment from Planned Parenthood Federation of America about the new video was not immediately available, but the nonprofit organization has denounced earlier undercover videos as fraudulent and misleading.

“These extremists show a total lack of compassion and dignity for women’s most personal medical decisions,” Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood, said earlier this month after a video release.

Meanwhile, pro-life groups are using the videos to step up their calls for investigations and defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood Horror: Baby’s Heart Beat as Brain Harvested

A newly released video in the series from the Center for Medical Progress about Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting practices is even more horrifying than previous ones.

The video features a former worker for Stem Express, the middleman organ-procurement company that has been mentioned in previous videos, talking about an organ extraction she was compelled to participate in.
Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue technician for Stem Express, relates how an intact brain was harvested from a late-term male child whose heart was still beating after an abortion.
O’Donnell said she was working one day when a co-worker called her over to see something “kinda cool.”
“So, I’m over here and this is the moment I see it. I’m just flabbergasted,” O’Donnell said. “This is the most gestated fetus and the closest thing to a baby I’ve seen. … I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating — and I don’t know what to think. I knew why it was happening, because the electrical current, the nodes were still firing, and I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead or if it’s alive.”
The child had a fully formed face, and what O’Donnell said happened next convinced her she could no longer work for the company.
“Since the fetus was so intact [my coworker] said, ‘This is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure the brain,'” O’Donnell said. “She takes the scissors and she makes a small incision … and goes, I would say to maybe a little bit through the mouth, and she was like, ‘OK, can you go the rest of the way?'”
O’Donnell said she didn’t want to do it but felt that she had to go along.
“I’m just sitting there like, ‘What did I just do?'” she said.

Abortion is terrible enough, and it’s appalling that the U.S. government is using taxpayer money to shore up a multibillion-dollar “nonprofit” business whose central purpose is the killing of unborn children, despite claims to the contrary.
Margaret Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood as a strategy to reduce the population of blacks, Latinos and other “unfit” people, was a strong proponent of birth control, segregation of undesirables and forced sterilization.
But Sanger quailed at abortion, mentioning in several instances that it was a barbaric practice:
“But during all the long years this matter has been discussed, advocated, refuted, the people themselves—poor people especially—were blindly, desperately practicing family limitation, just as they are practicing it today. To them birth control does not mean what it does to us. To them it has meant the most barbaric methods. It has meant the killing of babies—infanticide,—abortions,—in one crude way or another.”
“It is apparent that nothing short of contraceptives can put an end to the horrors of abortion and infanticide.”
“Usually this desire [for family limitation] has been laid to economic pressure… It has asserted itself among the rich and among the poor, among the intelligent and the unintelligent. It has been manifested in such horrors as infanticide, child abandonment and abortion.”
“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.”
While the principles Planned Parenthood was founded upon can be seen as inevitably leading to abortion as a practice, it seems the organization has gone beyond Sanger’s vision.
The child has surpassed the parent, so to speak.
If Planned Parenthood were merely an organization dedicated to women’s health and promoting birth control, it’s doubtful there would be much if any serious opposition to it.
But what is apparent and becoming more alarming with each new video is that Planned Parenthood has sunk to depths of evil that even the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger would have been disgusted by.


Planned Parenthood Executive Admits Big Profit in Selling Baby Parts!

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released the fifth video in its series of undercover footage taken while investigating Planned Parenthood’s (PP) business practices. In the latest video CMP’s investigators can be seen meeting with the Director of Research of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast who is giving her best sales pitch by explaining that PP is the only facility with the training and experience to deliver “intact fetuses.” Over the first four videos (see here and here) CMP has taken care to establish that PP breaks federal laws in several different and significant ways and this latest video continues that terrible trend.

The PP representative in this video is Melissa Farrell, and she’s doing her very best to get CMP’s business.

From CMP’s website:

“Where we probably have an edge over other organizations, our organization has been doing research for many many years,” explains Farrell. When researchers need a specific part from the aborted fetus, Farrell says, “We bake that into our contract, and our protocol, that we follow this, so we deviate from our standard in order to do that.”


Ethnic Cleansing In NYC: Almost 50% Of 2012 Abortions Were Black

by Michele HickfordBlack BabyPl

Horrific, horrific, horrific. According to the recently released Summary of Vital Statistics from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, ethnic cleansing is apparently occurring in the Big Apple.
In New York City, there were 56,000 black pregnancies in 2012. Of that total, 31,000 were aborted. That figure represents almost 50 percent of all abortions in New York City, despite the fact blacks represent less than 15 percent of the population. Read the report here.

Margaret Sanger’s grand plan for eugenics is a grand success in New York. It is progressives who fight most passionately for the policies and “freedoms” to allow this ethnic cleansing to occur. And conservatives are supposed to be the racist ones?


The Gosnell Trials: A Modern American Holocaust Story

By Brittany PoundersGosnell
Clash Daily Guest Contributor

I’ve struggled with this piece unlike with any other I’ve ever written. The details of this case and the other investigative, undercover videos that have emerged recently are so horrifyingly wicked and evil that it’s hard for me to even drudge up the wherewithal to watch a second of it. I’ve always said that abortion- for or against- boils down to one thing: basic human decency.

Maybe because my youngest is only a year old and I remember those graphic 4d ultrasounds that took place a mere few months ago. My sweet little baby playing with her cord, sucking her fingers, blinking her eyes- being formed in her own unique way was so visible at such an early stage. Yet, I’ve seen people recoil in disgust and willing to throw their last penny to pay for a hurting animal- and immediately turn cold-hearted at the thought of an “unwanted baby” of their own flesh and blood.

There aren’t many political topics that I can’t debate in fun. But human life- innocent at it’s very core- without any chance or opportunity to defend itself is one that I can’t walk away with and shake hands. That’s where I draw the line. I recoil on the inside, and I’m sure it’s visibly noticeable.

As a mother who has seen life visible at just a few mere weeks while laying on the doctors table, staring at a pulsing heart on the screen beside me, my heart bleeds and cries at the thought of the lie that is being sold to women and young girls everywhere by a sector of our society who has allowed Convenience to be their god.

The Gosnell trials has brought this horrific practice, with it’s graphic details, into the spotlight. The reality and horror is on the stand. But it’s been ignored by a media who wants to brush it under the rug so it doesn’t have the chance to prick at the conscience of the public.

The reality of abortion isn’t nearly so clean as the multi-million dollar industry who profits from it wants you to believe. The reality is some babies are born alive…left to die, gasping for breath on a table or drowning in a toilet. Women, the mothers, who are debased and, in some cases, left to die. The left wants us to believe that Planned Parenthood is there to prevent those back alley abortions- instead, all too often, they leave the same exact results- dark and lonely corners, blood dripping utensils (instead of hangers) , and babies born alive and thrown into a bucket to die a painfully wicked death…and doctors who collect the little hands and feet in jars as mementos, But…..shhhhhhh…. That’s a secret that must be left off the airwaves -it certainly is an inconvenient truth that mustn’t be revealed.

The horrors of what has happened with the Gosnell trials is nothing short of the equivalent of any headline news. But, it’s been whitewashed, ignored, swept under the rug. Otherwise, it reveals Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates to be the graphic, murderous and inhumane organization that it has always been. In fact, even finding someone who has heard the name “Gosnell” is so challenging it makes my blood turn to a boil. Why hasn’t everyone heard this man’s name? Why isn’t it being given the time in major media that it deserves? Details such as:

Well formed babies that Dr. Gosnell is alleged to have removed from women by inducing delivery or “precipitating,” as he called it. Then, because they were alive and breathing, he or members of his staff would plunge scissors into the back of the neck and sever the spinal cord. He is charged with doing this seven times, but it is thought he may have done it to hundreds of infants.

Others testified:

One clinic worker, Kareema Cross, testified one of the babies was born into a toilet.

“I saw the baby in the toilet. It moved. It breathed. It had a head as big as a pancake,” Cross testified…

Cross also testified about one particularly large baby.

“She delivered and the baby came out big, about 12-16 inches. He came out, and Dr. Gosnell put him in a box, a plastic box. But the baby was so big his arms and legs hung out of the box,” Cross said. “Dr. Gosnell took the box from the room. After this, the baby pulled his arms together.

“Dr. Gosnell took pictures, then he snapped the baby’s neck,” Cross said. “Dr. Gosnell said that this baby was so big he could have walked me to the bus stop.”

In testimony on Monday, Adrienne Moton, who used to work for Gosnell at the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia, said she recalled one baby – “Baby Boy A” – who was aborted in July 2008. Baby A was so large, Moton took a photo of the child with her cell phone before Gosnell took the baby out of the room.

“I just saw a big baby boy. He had that color, that color that a baby has,” Moton said in court. “I just felt he could have had a chance. … He could have been born any day.”

In writing this, I came across so many pictures of those fully formed babies that were viciously murdered by Gosnell (not for the faint of heart, but just as important as viewing the horrific holocaust pictures- we need to know what is happening to fully understand the atrocities). Pictures clearly showing the holes in the back of their necks and their perfect little bodies throw in shoe boxes. My stomach recoils, my eyes are full of tears, my hands shake… and I can only wonder how long we can go before a Merciful God runs out of mercy and begins to dole out justice.

In closing, because I could turn this into a 12 part series, easily filled with detail after detail of what is being discovered through the Gosnell trials and the blatant infanticide that Planned Parenthood encourages and participates fully in I leave you with this:

“David Brewer, a former abortionist, tells his story: ‘I can remember that day watching the first abortion . I saw a little tiny head, and I saw a piece of a leg, and I saw a tiny hand, and I saw an arm. You know, it was like somebody put a hot poker into me . I had a conscience and that hurt. That was a very hard experience for me to go through, emotionally. So I did what a lot of us do throughout our life, we don’t do anything. I didn’t talk with anybody about it. and do you know what happened? I got to see another abortion. You know what? That one hurt, too. But I kept seeing abortions, and it hurt a little bit less every time I saw one. Do you know what happened next? I got to sit down and do one . The first one that I did was kind of hard. It was like hurting again like a hot poker. But after a while, it got to where it didn’t hurt’ (Testimony at ‘Meet the Abortion Providers’ conference in Chicago).

“So yes, I am not at all surprised that Dr. Gosnell is cool, calm and collected, smiling even as he listens to those accusing him of murder. Abortion destroys the abortionists themselves.”

I highly recommend checking out this website for more information about this inhuman evil in our country. There are several undercover websites that are absolutely worth watching. They will give you a small glimpse of what goes on behind closed doors in the abortion industry.

God help us.

Judge rules Texas can defund Planned Parenthood


The year 2013 marks a new era for the state of Texas: It is the first year the state’s health program has not funded Planned Parenthood affiliates.

The new relationship went into effect on New Year’s Day, one day after District Judge Gary Harger denied the abortion provider’s request for a temporary injunction against the law.

“Judge Harger has reaffirmed the state’s right to keep tax dollars out of the abortion industry,” said Elizabeth Graham, Director of Texas Right to Life.

Governor Rick Perry launched the new Texas Women’s Health Program (TWHP) on January 1 after defunding the abortion giant.

While the old Women’s Health Program did not pay for abortion, a little less than half of the 110,000 procedures state taxpayers funded each year under the program were performed by Planned Parenthood.

After Texas voted to exclude abortion providers or their affiliates, President Obama withheld federal funds, which accounted for 90 percent of the $40 million program. Gov. Perry responded by creating the new TWHP, funded entirely by the state.

Underprivileged women may now choose from 3,500 health care providers – more than 1,000 more than they had access to under the federally funded program.

Ken Lambrecht, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, accused Texas officials of “letting politics jeopardize health care access for women.”

In October, Perry called on Planned Parenthood to “end the scare tactics that have been going on, and focus on what’s truly important – and that’s helping these patients get the services that they need and that they deserve.”

Their lawsuit, he said, only served to “confirm that their own profits and their pro-abortion agenda are more important than the women they claim to care for.”

(Click “like” if you want to end abortion! )

If the industry truly cared about poor women, they could help them find care from the thousands of caregivers who do not base their business on abortion, state officials said.

Linda Edwards Gockel, a spokeswoman for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, said, “We welcome Planned Parenthood’s help in referring patients to providers in the new program.”

The law – which Perry signed in July – is still being legally contested, as Planned Parenthood claims the law violates its members’ constitutional rights.
