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.”

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.
Since the Nov. 6 election, many have concluded that America is changing from a “center-right” Judeo-Christian country into a welfare-entitlement society that will elect a supremely deceitful demagogue as long as he promises “free stuff” for everyone.
They’re right. But there’s something else America is evolving into – something even more alarming – and several recent WND reports bring this new trend into sharp focus.
Kupelian explains why evil is growing so rapidly in”How Evil Works.”
In a campaign disturbingly close to advocacy of child sex, the International Planned Parenthood Foundation, which advocates “sexual rights” for all, has created a “young people’s guide” in conjunction with its official declaration urging recognition of the “evolving capacities” for “sexual pleasure” in all children and young people.
The organization, headquartered in London, has posted online a document titled “Exclaim! Young People’s Guide to ‘Sexual Rights: An IPPF declaration,” which proclaims that “sexual rights” for youth must be guaranteed, so that “all young people around the world [will] be able to explore, experience and express their sexualities in healthy, positive, pleasurable and safe ways.”
Just as controversial, it also advances as a fundamental goal the “removal of parental involvement or spousal consent laws that prevent young people from seeking sexual and reproductive health services.”
* At Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash., a grown man is allowed to get completely naked and change into his swimwear right alongside a girls’ swim team.
“Little girls should not be exposed to naked men, period,” said David Hacker, a senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is demanding that Evergreen officials .
And that’s why the public interest law firm is calling on Evergreen officials to do something to make their campus safe after details of its bizarre “nondiscrimination” policy emerged.
“Most of these students are minors, and range from ages 6 to 18,” said ADF attorneys. “On several occasions recently, the children saw a naked man in the women’s locker room sauna who was displaying his male genitalia. The children saw him through the sauna’s glass door, which allowed him a plain view of the young girls while they were changing. The children notified their swim coach, who called police.”
“The idea that the college and the local district attorney will not act to protect young girls is appalling. What Americans are seeing here is the poisoned fruit of so-called ‘nondiscrimination’ laws and policies. Placing this man’s proclivities ahead of protecting little girls is beyond acceptable.”
* When you combine such disturbing stories – and there are many more like them – with another recent WND report on a coalition of United Nations groups that, under the pretext of “AIDS prevention,” is pushing to criminalize “homophobia,” a pattern emerges: The sexual anarchy of the “gay rights movement” is morphing and expanding to the point that the very innocence of children is now endangered.

Over 100 millions girls are missing today. These girls were victims of gendercide. The war on baby girls begins in the womb.
AUSTIN, May 29 — Today, Live Action released a new undercover video showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, TX encouraging a woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. The video is first in a new series titled “Gendercide: Sex-Selection in America,” exposing the practice of sex-selective abortion in the United States and how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry facilitate the selective elimination of baby girls in the womb.
“I see that you’re saying that you want to terminate if it’s a girl, so are you just wanting to continue the pregnancy in the meantime?” a counselor named “Rebecca” offers the woman, who is purportedly still in her first trimester and cannot be certain about the gender. “The abortion covers you up until 23 weeks,” explains Rebecca, “and usually at 5 months is usually (sic) when they detect, you know, whether or not it’s a boy or a girl.” Doctors agree that the later in term a doctor performs an abortion, the greater the risk of complications.
The Planned Parenthood staffer suggests that the woman get on Medicaid in order to pay for an ultrasound to determine the gender of her baby, even though she plans to use the knowledge for an elective abortion. She also tells the woman to “just continue and try again” for the desired gender after aborting a girl, and adds, “Good luck, and I hope that you do get your boy.”
“The search-and-destroy targeting of baby girls through prenatal testing and abortion is a pandemic that is spreading across the globe,” notes Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action. “Research proves that sex-selective abortion has now come to America. The abortion industry, led by Planned Parenthood, is a willing participant.”
Six studies in the past four years indicate that there are thousands of “missing girls” in the U.S., many from sex-selective abortion. The U.K., India, Australia, and other countries ban sex-selective abortion, but the U.S., save for three states, does not. On Wednesday, Congress will debate the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban sex-selective abortions nationally.
“Planned Parenthood and their ruthless abortion-first mentality is the real ‘war on women’,” says Rose. “Sex-selective abortion is gender discrimination with lethal consequences for little girls.”

‘HOOKING KIDS ON SEX’: GRAPHIC NEW VID REPORT SHOWS HOW PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS CREATING ‘FUTURE CUSTOMERS
On the heels of the fracas that resulted from the Susan G. Komen Foundation pulling Planned Parenthood funding, and then reinstating it, comes a new report that might make the breast cancer research giant a little uncomfortable.
The American Life League has released a graphic new video report that it says shows how Planned Parenthood “exposes children to sexual material in order to seed a generation of sex addicts, who will become future customers for the abortion giant.”“If you aren’t convinced by now that there are some truly sick pups behind Planned Parenthood, this video from the American Life League should erase any lingering doubts,” the Right Scoop says. “In the name of ‘education,’ Planned Parenthood exposes children as young as 10 years old to pornographic illustrations of masturbation, nudity, sexual activity, and much much more.”
“Any parent that sees the video of Planned Parenthood’s material for school children will be horrified,” Jim Sedlak, vice president of the American Life League, told Life Site News. “Planned Parenthood’s business model is aimed at making money from people who are engaged in sexual activity. Those are the women who will have abortions, which made up 51% of Planned Parenthood’s clinic revenue in 2010.”
What’s he talking about? Here’s an explanation:
In one section the video, “Hooking Kids on Sex,” talks about a book for 10-year-olds with graphic images about how to masturbate, put on a condom and have sexual intercourse.
The video also discusses Planned Parenthood of the Upper Hudson’s S.T.A.R.S (Seriously Talking About Responsible Sex), which required applicants to the program to be high school students and go to the sexually explicit Capital Pride.
The video begins with graphic images showing how Planned Parenthood regularly uses props shaped as male and female genitals — including suckers — in their pitches.
You can watch the video below. But warning, there is some graphic content:

In a week filled with discussions about the funding of Planned Parenthood, it seems appropriate to share a 2005 video from the organization.
This was a cartoon distributed by Planned Parenthood Golden Gate called “Superhero for Choice!”
The 8:55 animated cartoon features a Pro-Choice Superhero named Dionysus. Throughout the feature, she is attacking anyone who supports the pro-life movement. And in most cases, her attacks are violent.
Curiously, all who oppose the abortion rights folks are white people. The first scene has a strangely attired man telling kids about abstinence.
He is insulted by the superhero, then apparently drowned in a trash can filled with water. Dionysus announces that it “time to take out the trash.“ And then she reminds the young kids that Planned Parenthood is the place to go for ”all your healthcare needs and reproductive advice.” (I guess the kids don’t have parents to ask questions about sex and health.) Before she leaves, Dionysus also gives the kids a “Safe Sex Kit.”
Next up, protesters outside of a clinic are shown as zombies… white zombies.
What does the Planned Parenthood avenger do to the zombies? She shoots them with a giant condom gun, they are engulfed in latex and explode.
The “zombies” were not violent… they were only exercising their First Amendment rights. However, Dionysus decided that she must eliminate them.
It does seem surprising that the only violence in this cartoon comes from the Planned Parenthood Superhero. She’s packing a gun that shoots exploding condoms. What kind of a message is that sending?The “zombies” were not violent… they were only exercising their First Amendment rights. However, Dionysus decided that she must eliminate them.

When “Roe v. Wade” is tossed in the stew pot, our “hero” takes more drastic action, dumping the Senator in the pot and holding him under the water until all the problems have been boiled out of him.
Thanks to being boiled in a pot, the Senator sees the light (the Planned Parenthood light) and is allowed to go free… just without his clothes.
In summation: Planned Parenthood’s Superhero video teaches kids;
Parents don’t know as much about healthcare and reproduction as the people at Planned Parenthood.
People who protest at abortion clinics are (white) zombies and it’s ok to destroy them.
Senators who are pro-life are against the Constitution and boiling them until they see things your way is a good idea.
The video is no longer on the Planned Parenthood websites, but thanks to YouTube, we can bring it to you in all its glory.
