The Democrats love affair with Planned Parenthood
examiner.com ^ | 4/9/2011 | Joe Newby

Posted on 04/10/2011 6:10:55 AM PDT by FredJake

Democrats love Planned Parenthood so much they were willing to shut down the entire U.S. government over planned cuts to the organization.

If given a choice, they would rather give taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood than pay the men and women who serve America's military.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid drew a line in the sand Friday morning while speaking from the floor of the United States Senate:

“I’m not going to be part of that. I won’t do it,” he said about efforts to cut Planned Parenthood funding on the part of House Republicans.

Nancy Pelosi claimed the GOP is at war with women, and Louise Slaughter compared Republicans to Nazis.

Democrats like to claim that Planned Parenthood is the greatest thing since the invention of the cotton gin. Listening to Democrats and their willing accomplices in the media, one would think that were it not for Planned Parenthood, women would have absolutely no health care whatsoever.

MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell broke out in tears on national television while discussing the possibility that his beloved Planned Parenthood might be defunded. The Huffington Post reports that after attacking Republican Senator Jon Kyl:

O'Donnell then turned to an email which he said came from a friend of his who used Planned Parenthood. He read the email out from his Blackberry, and as he did so, his hands, and his voice, started shaking with emotion. The friend's email recounted her dire financial straits and history of medical illnesses. Planned Parenthood, she wrote, was the place she went for her birth control and her cancer screenings, and through them, she said, she was able to get multiple mammograms.

Of course Democrats love Planned Parenthood - it's another excuse for them to support killing children.

“it’s another excuse for them to support killing children.”

This way, they think that their fingerprints won’t be at the scene of the crime.

Murdering unborn children is the highest sacrament in the liberal religion. There's just no other way to explain the reactions from the left over defunding (not even shutting down or outlawing the practice of murdering unborn children) this organization.

And here's a sure-fire way to shut down anyone who claims that PP doesn't perform abortions with our money:

Say the federal government decided to start subsidizing some Christian organization. The usual suspects on the left will naturally howl and scream that the federal government is now funding the proselytizing of Christianity. Retort by saying "oh, the federal money doesn't go towards that part of the operation."

They love it because it’s an easy way to transition into governmental treatment centers for nationalized healthcare.

The republicans were idiots on this budget, and they got played. Instead of picking a battle where THE ENTIRE FRIGGING COUNTRY IS READY TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE THEM (Obamacare), they chose to make their final stand on an issue that, to many swing voters, defines them as religious zealots and has no bearing whatsoever on stopping the relentless onslaught of socialism.

Way to go.

At the rate they are doing abortions there won't be any Democrats in fifty years. Eugenics for Democrats. Has a certain ring to it. And 60% of blacks in NYC get abortions. The Sanger mentality lives on at Planned Parenthood.

Yes, there will be. There are plenty of conservatives sending their kids into godless, socialist-funded, collectivist-managed, government schools!

Simply by attending children learn to be comfortable with taking money from their neighbor for a service their parents want for tuition-free. They will become comfortable with the voting mob collective controlling their thoughts, lives, and now with Death Panels, even how they die. And....They **WILL** learn to think and reason godlessly. They must if they are to cooperate with the classroom indoctrination and complete assignments.

This is even true even in Utah!

The funny and ironic thing about this is that Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood was instituted for the improvement of human hereditary traits. The Aryan race was one of their goals.More Here

Bachmann Voted Against $39 Billion Deal
Saturday, April 9, 2011 10:31 AM

House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama are hailing Friday night’s last-minute budget deal that averted a Michele Bachmann, Government Shutdowngovernment shutdown. But Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is not a fan of the agreement that will slice $38.5 billion in spending, calling it a “disappointment.”

After the deal was struck Friday night, Bachmann voted against a stopgap meaure that will keep the federal government operating until final details in the budget deal can be hammered out, Politico reports. A final vote on the deal should come by the middle of next week. Bachmann says she also will vote against that.

“The deal that was reached tonight is a disappointment for me and for millions of Americans who expected $100 billion in cuts, who wanted to make sure their tax dollars stopped flowing to the nation’s largest abortion provider, and who wanted us to defund Obamacare,” she said in a statement issued to the media.

So, they will pay for the killing of innocent people in the womb, but they won't pay for killing the bad guys.

At least they're consistent. This has been the SOP of The RAT Party for decades.

“Murdering unborn children is the highest sacrament in the liberal religion”...

To call abortion murder is like calling second hand smoke a weapon.

I’m pro-life because of our established inalienable rights but I don’t have the right to press charges against my girlfriend, sister, neighbor or other female for terminating a pregnancy.

I choose not (as is my right) to think of abortion as murder. However, I disagree with legalized late-term or partial birth abortion. If the latter two types of abortion procedures were legally restricted or abolished, then I might start thinking that wherever they occur, there would be crime scenes to be investigated for voluntary manslaughter or negligent homicide...

I try to avoid having extreme views myself but I understand where so-called right wing “extremist” views come from.

This says to me that they were not serious.

You fight your initial battles on ground where the enemy is weakest, use those victories to weaken the enemy further, and only THEN do battle on ground that the enemy will fight hardest for.

There is an identifiable circle of tragedy and destruction created by liberals:

The highly publicized occurrences of babies born deformed by thalidomide brought about the emotionally charged (and falsely created) Roe v. Wade trial. It was great opportunity for liberals to capitalize on an issue and coin the phrase "A woman's right to Choose" in order to snare a huge block of voters who would help them push other issues.

Since Roe V. Wade over 50 million babied have been killed both in and out of the womb. This began 40 years ago so many of those babies would already have given birth to children who would be replenishing our productive population. With them engaged in our economy we might not be facing the eminent collapse of Social Security and medicare ( at least not so soon).

Additionally, the power given to liberals through the 'right to choose' voting block has helped bring about affirmative action, repressive environmental regulations, prohibition against our own energy resources and a myriad of non productive social experiments that degrade our culture and drain the economy.

And I choose to think of "abortion" as murdering of unborn children because my God told me that is what it is. Even if the government "blesses" this activity by removing criminal punishment for it, that does not change the fact that it is still murder.

You can't say a dog has 5 legs if you claim the tail is a leg. Regardless of such a claim, a tail is not a leg.

They aren't any more partial to killing children than to killing adults (except it's easier to kill children). It's about power and money and nothing more or less than that. The path of least resistance for the expression of brute power is to prey upon the weak, and the weaker the better.

if it were politically expedient and profitable (am I being redundant here?) to kill puppies, that would be the big "right" that our founders sacrificed to bequeath us.

When the time comes that it makes more sense to kill adults -- certain ones, of course -- theyll do that with just as much fervor.

This is it, FRiends and neighbors: this is as enlightened as the human race gets. It's all downhill from here.

What kills me is this myth that “women” won’t have anyplace to go go get their contraception.
Contraception is available at any medical clinic and most hospitals. These places also serve the poor.
There are even charitable groups that have invested in mobile medical units (converted buses) that travel to low income neighborhoods. These groups deserve funding.

There is group that won’t have easy access however...minors. If PP clinics shut down - they are usually within walking distance of your local high school. Young girls will have a harder time signing out of study hall and getting their abortions and pills without mom and dad knowing.

Tophet is Moloch, which was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved.

There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier.

“To them, abortion is made in heaven.”

Forty years or so ago, did the powers-that-be know or even imagine that NYC’s black population would be aborting so many pregnancies? What is it, 60 percent or more?

Knowing that, I have to wonder whether such consequences were/are intentional or not and if so, I would also tend to believe that some right wing “extremists” are/were in favor of such consequences, which may explain why abortion is still legal.

re: “To call abortion murder is like calling second hand smoke a weapon.”

The only way your statement could be legitimate is if you de-humanize the unborn child.

You demonstrated this in your post when you later referred to an abortion as simply “terminating a pregnancy”.

Abortion is the violent killing of a completely helpless human being - if that is not murder then I guess one could define murder as anything one wants.

I understand that it is uncomfortable for some to call abortion for what it is because of the implications that follows on those people you know who have had abortions - you don’t want to call them murderers, but unfortunately thats what they are whether you “chose” to define it that way or not.

That’s one of the reasons this whole hellish practice must be stopped. Cultures which practice child sacrifice don’t think of it as murder either, but that is what it is. Right and Wrong are not personal preferences else they become meaningless.

I’m sure you will define my view as extreme, but look at what abortion does to the unborn child - have you seen what that looks like? After viewing the results of an abortion, you tell me - who is the true “extremist”?

Abortion, euthanasia, birth control, elevating the earth and animals over humans; it's part of their culture of death. It is an illness of the soul that began in the mind.

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting" Romans 1:28

It is also a huge source of fundraising cash for the democrats. Rather like the unions, only the unions are giving their membership money to the democrats; and, Planned Parenthood is giving OUR money to the democrats.

The Dems don't give a damn about "women's health"; it is all about the money. It is always about the money.

Bingo! This cannot be said enough, or loudly enough. Where are the Republicans on pointing this very obvious fact out to the American people. The Dems would rather not pay military families (while our young men and women are in war zones) so that Planned Parenthood can keep being federally funded. There should have been Republicans on every single news channel giving this info to the American people. Crickets -- that's what we hear instead.

re: “To call abortion murder is like calling second hand smoke a weapon.”

“The only way your statement could be legitimate is if you de-humanize the unborn child.”

Not if I’m merely applying logic to a written statement. Abortion is legal. The decision was made and it still stands. We don’t have to like it and we don’t have to participate in it.

But what it if was your niece, goddaughter, sister, an aunt or even your own mother? There must be millions of mothers in America with their “secrets”...Just an innocent, confused young skull full of mush who made a mistake or would she still be a murderer or at least someone guilty of voluntary manslaughter who should be judged as an adult?

It’s so much easier to “know” what’s right when it’s not you or your own family and friends. That’s just human nature.

Louise Slaughter statements last week:

”In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.”

Oh really? Shouldn't that be "The women who are having abortions are there to kill babies who may become women."?

Slaughter’s focus is also the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” a bill that would apply to every federal program and department to ensure that pro-life advocates don’t have to pass several pro-life riders annually to ensure various parts of the federal government don’t fund abortions with taxpayer dollars. Slaughter made the false charge that the bill forces women to prove they were raped or a victim of incest to qualify for a publicly-funded abortion under the rare exceptions in the bill.

“You are allowed to have an abortion if you have been raped or it’s a matter of incest,” said Slaughter. “However, you have to keep a receipt. Did you know that? It’s sort of like an old German Nazi movie. Show me your papers!”

Oh, looky here. She certainly fulfilled Godwin's Law and indirectly brought up The Holocaust. Mizz Slaughter, abortion kills human life in enormous numbers which makes the slaughter of unborn babies a holocaust all its own. (Definition: holocaust- any mass slaughter or reckless destruction of life)

Okay, unpunished maybe but “unpublished”, yes or most-likely...in order to protect the reputation of the “perpetrator” by keeping it a secret among family, friends, neighbors and fellow parishoners?

If it’s a case of murder then the public would have the right to know.

I see the double standards all the way around.
