Why Should God Save America

I am a Christian. I make no apologies, and I am happy to say I am a follower of Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior, and everything I am and everything I hold dear comes from Him.

This was once believed by the majority of our citizens to be a Christian nation. I know that our politically correct re-written imperial History now tells us that we were a pluralistic hodgepodge from the beginning; however the record is clear we were founded as a nation built upon Judeo-Christian beliefs.

As one source expresses it, “The founding of this country as well as the framing of the key political documents rests upon a Christian foundation. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the United States is a Christian nation, although some framers used that term. But it does mean that the foundations of this republic presuppose a Christian view of human nature and God’s providence.”

Some of the Founders of our country and the Framers of our Constitution were very direct in their statements regarding the nature of our nation.

John Adams in a letter to the officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts stated, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”

In George Washington’s Farewell Address, which is still read aloud at the beginning of every new Congress, our first president said, “And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

What do we see today? Instead of celebrating the influence of God in our founding every child is indoctrinated from grade school through graduate school that America was founded on the principle of the separation of church and state. Yet you can scour the Constitution of the United States, and you will NOT find the phrase, “separation of church and state” or anything close to it. However, in the Constitution of the Soviet Union the doctrine of the separation of Church and State is found: “In order to ensure to citizens freedom of conscience, the church in the U.S.S.R. is separated from the State, and the school from the church. Freedom of religious worship and freedom of antireligious propaganda is recognized for all citizens” (Article 124).

While the concept of separation of church and state might be implied by the First Amendment which states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….”, it says nothing about the “separation of church and state.” And, even if you accept the principle of the separation of church and state being implied by the First Amendment, its implication is not there to protect Americans from religion, it is there to protect religious Americans from the government.

If it isn’t in the Constitution where does this wall of separation come from? The phrase originates in Thomas Jefferson’s 1802 letter to the Baptist Association of Danbury, Connecticut. In this letter the Danbury Baptists complained to the president that Connecticut’s law was oppressive to their religion. Among other things, Connecticut’s law allowed towns to levy taxes for the support of a religion designated by the majority of voters; since Connecticut was overwhelmingly Congregationalist, the law effectively forced Baptists throughout the state to support Congregational churches.

While Jefferson was powerless to change Connecticut’s law (the First Amendment did not yet apply to the states), Jefferson used the occasion to express his belief that no such law could be implemented on the federal level. Observed Jefferson, “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law regarding an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.”

The current anti-religious environment in our land is based upon court decisions which have given this single sentence from a private letter the force of law. It has been used by the courts to re-interpret the Constitution from its clear meaning to one that is the mirror image of what its authors intended.

Today America is ruled by a Progressive cartel made up of politicians, crony-capitalists, Academics providing the philosophical foundations, and the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media providing cover. This minority clique relies on low information voters, government employees and those on the dole to keep them in power through elections that supposedly approximate a choice. In reality it is usually a choice between two progressives from the twin-headed party of power.

Following the dictates of secularism and enforcing the religion of secular-humanism and its sacramental hoax, man-made global warming, these wannabe totalitarians have cleansed God from our schools, government, and public life.

When God destroyed His chosen people He told them why, “Because they have forsaken Me and made this an alien place, because they have burned incense in it to other gods whom neither they, their fathers, nor the kings of Judah have known, and have filled this place with the blood of the innocents.”

Today America not only condones it promotes abortion on demand. According to Abortion No: “Many people fail to appreciate the sheer magnitude of bloodshed, suffering, and death that legalized abortion has introduced into the human experience – both in the United States and worldwide. Far more human lives have been violently ended by this scourge than by any other war or genocide in all of history.”

Freedom Outpost sums up this tragedy: “Every single day a tragedy greater than 9/11 takes place, but hardly anyone is talking about it anymore.  On September 11th, 2001 more than 3,000 Americans lost their lives when three giant steel frame skyscrapers were brought down in New York City.  That was a great evil, but so is the fact that we purposely kill more than 3,000 of our own babies every single day in this country.  The fact that society has generally accepted the practice of abortion does not lessen the evil that we have done one bit.  Today, the United States has the highest abortion rate in the entire western world, and hardly anyone makes a fuss about it anymore.  In fact, a lot of Americans laugh about it, and some even do comedy skits about it.  We are so casual about abortion these days that one university is actually recruiting teen girls to have abortions for a “scientific study” that is being conducted.  But someday we will be judged for what we have done.  We have killed more than 56 million of our own babies, and their blood is crying out for justice.”

Looking at the size and scope of this abomination, if God does not judge us he owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah.

However God tells us as He told Israel, “ if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

I believe that God does not judge nations because of the sin that is in them for the same sins are in all people at all times in all places. I believe God judges nations because of the sin they condone. Look about you and ask yourself, “What sins do we not condone.”

If we will turn He will heal us. If we do not turn we will burn. And in that bonfire of our vanity we will know the answer to my question, why should God save America? If we don’t repent, turn from our evil ways, and turn to Him, He shouldn’t.

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.

7th Planned Parenthood Video Reveals They Harvested Baby’s Heart While It Was Still Beating

(Warning: Disturbing Content)
The third episode in a new documentary web series and 7th video on Planned Parenthood’s supply of aborted fetal tissue tells a former procurement technician’s harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
Whistleblower Who Harvested Aborted Baby Parts Inside Planned Parenthood Clinics for StemExpress Describes “Most Difficult Experience I Had There” In Latest Documentary Episode

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19–The third episode in a new documentary web series and 7th video on Planned Parenthood’s supply of aborted fetal tissue tells a former procurement technician’s harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.

The “Human Capital” documentary web series, produced by The Center for Medical Progress, integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to explore different themes within Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal tissue. Episode 3, “Planned Parenthood’s Custom Abortions for Superior Product,” launches today at:

The series focuses on the personal narrative of Holly O’Donnell, a former Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician for StemExpress, a biotech start-up that until last week was partnered with two large northern California Planned Parenthood affiliates to purchase their aborted fetus parts and resell them for scientific experimentation.

O’Donnell describes the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘I want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”

The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell remarks, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”

State and federal law require that the same treatment be given to an infant born-alive after an abortion as to a normally delivered baby (1 U.S.C. 8, CA Health and Safety Code 123435). California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat (CA Health and Safety Code 123440). StemExpress has been cited in published scientific literature as a source of fetal hearts used for Langendorff perfusion, which keeps a heart beating after it is excised from the body:

O’Donnell also tells how her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain. “She gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. I can’t even describe what that feels like,” she says.

The video also features recordings of Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, and also of Perrin Larton, Procurement Manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR). Novogenix is the company that has harvested fetal organs from abortions done by Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, in Los Angeles, while ABR is the oldest fetal tissue procurement company and works with Planned Parenthood in San Diego and other clinics around the country. Van Handel admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating,” and Larton describes abortions she has seen where “the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.”

CMP’s Project Lead David Daleiden notes, “Today’s video contains heartrending admissions about the absolute barbarism of Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice and baby parts sales in which fetuses are sometimes delivered intact and alive. Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization from the top down and should be immediately stripped of taxpayer funding and prosecuted for their atrocities against humanity.”

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.”


The Abomination of Obamanation

I have often said in the pages of these Dispatches from the past to the future that nations are not judged by the sin that is in them for the same sin is within all of us.  Neither are societies judged by the sins that are committed by those who form their population for all people in all civilizations have sinned and this will continue until the end of time.

Societies are judged by the sins they condone.

The northern kingdom of Israel was judged because they rejected God and turned to the worship of the golden calf.  God gave them up to the Assyrians.  Judah was judged because they sacrificed their children to Baal, and God could not ignore the cry of the blood of these innocents.  God gave them up to the Babylonians.

Many believe that the Nazis were judged because of the holocaust: the planned and systematic murder of 6 million Jews and many millions of Russians, Poles, homosexuals, Jews and anyone else who did not fit their vision of a perfect man.

The Soviets may have met judgement for their gulag archipelago that enslaved and killed tens of millions because they did not fit into their vision of a classless society.

Will America be judged? Is America being judged? If so what would that judgment look like?

In America today the headlines read like chapter titles in a dystopian novel.

In reaction to the horror revealed by these videos, the abomination of Obamanation, what do our rulers from the forbidden city, “Chicago on the Potomac” have to say:

Obama Spokesman on Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Baby Parts: They Say They’re “Ethical”

White House calls Planned Parenthood videos ‘fraudulent,’ rejects calls to strip funding

And what does our paramount leader by decree have to say:

While officially ignoring the revelation of the abomination President Obama in Africa speaking of the African custom of killing albinos to harvest their organs for magic potions says, “Killing humans and harvesting their organs is an atrocity that must end.”  Furthermore according to the President, “harvesting organs from humans that are killed as part of an African ritual was “craziness” and a “cruel tradition that needed to stop.” He warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of humans and of the problems that arise when “you are not able to see someone else as a human being.”  Can’t he hear what he is saying?  Doesn’t he realize that he has made the perfect argument for defunding Planned Parenthood?

What is the answer of the Progressive political machine to all these shocking revelations?  An Obama Appointee and Bundler Blocks More Video Releases By the Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting.

It is easy to believe that it is the supporters and proponents of abortion alone who are condoning and perpetrating this abomination. It is in reality everyone who knows and yet stands silent.  Does anyone really believe that the German people did not know what was going on?

Did you know that Planned Parenthood gets more than half a billion dollars from the federal government every single year?  That is tax money.  That is your money and my money that is given to these Mengele clones.  They say the money is not used to pay for abortions.  However all money is fungible: it can be used either here or there.  This money may not pay for abortions, but it is used to make election contributions to the very political prostitutes that defend their death factories and promote their agenda by asserting that they are the bastions of women’s rights and the guardians of woman’s bodies.

And the beat goes on: Obama spreads myth that Planned Parenthood is champion of women’s health.

We are a conquered nation.  Our Constitution has been willfully subverted by a Progressive clique of socialist utopians.  They have used the cover of a living document philosophy to turn our Constitution into a dead letter.  We are ruled by the decrees of an imperial president while our elected officials at best sit on their hands and at worst collude in the occupation.

The abomination outlined above is the rider of a pale horse, the chronicle of a society condoning the slaughter of innocents, and a humanistic empire staggering towards the abyss while worshipping a cult of death.

The blood of more than 55 million innocents cries out from our land.  If we do not turn and humble ourselves before God, if He does not judge us, Sodom and Gomorrah deserve an apology.  It is enough to make one wonder into whose hand God will give us up.

We who do not wish to go over the cliff into perdition with these social sadists must separate ourselves from the stench of their sin.  We must stand up, speak up, rise up, and move positively to proclaim the sanctity of life and the primacy of God not man.  To love the sinner and hate the sin does not mean to stay silent in the face of this abomination of Obamanation.

Will America be judged? Is America being judged? If so what would that judgment look like?

God did not shrink from judging his chosen people when they transgressed His covenant and became evil in his sight. He does not shrink from judging nations that do evil. Is it not the pinnacle of pride to believe that God will turn a blind eye to the slaughter of tens of millions of unborn babies, to the desecration of their remains and the wholesale rejection of His laws, His ways and His Son?

When God sent the prophet Zechariah to the people of Judah to warn them of the coming consequences of their sin He told him to “Dress up like a stupid shepherd. I’m going to install just such a shepherd in this land—a shepherd indifferent to victims, who ignores the lost, abandons the injured, and disdains decent citizens. He’ll only be in it for what he can get out of it, using and abusing any and all.”

As a punishment to the people for turning away from Him God allowed foolish and evil leaders to gain power.   What does judgment look like? Look around you.

To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge.  To find the will of God is the greatest discovery.  To do the will of God is the greatest achievement.

Planned Parenthood President: When Life Begins Not “Really Relevant” To Abortion…

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told an interviewer on Thursday that “I don’t know that it’s really relevant” to consider when life begins when discussing abortion.

The abortion industry leader appeared on Fusion TV’s America with Jorge Ramos before a backdrop featuring pictures of herself and Wendy Davis.

“For you, when does life start? When does a human being become a human being?” Ramos asked.

“This is a question that I think will be debated through the centuries,” she said.

“But for you, what’s that point?” Ramos followed up.

“It is not something that I feel like is really part of this conversation,” she said, stuttering and clearly shaken. “I think every woman needs to make her own decision,” she finally said.

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.
