Planned Parenthood: Pro-Abortion Bill a Victory, Executive Order Meaningless
Life News ^ | 3/22/10 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 03/22/2010 3:46:22 PM PDT by wagglebee

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Planned Parenthood called the pro-abortion health care bill the House approved late Sunday night a victory and applauded the financial windfall is expected to reap as a result. The abortion business also dismissed the executive order President Barack Obama promised Congressman Bart Stupak as harmless.

“For more than a year, Planned Parenthood has worked tirelessly for a health care" bill, its president Cecile Richards said in a statement today. "It's a huge victory for women's health, but our work isn't over yet."

With passage of the legislation, "monumental progress was made toward achieving these goals."

Richard dismissed the executive order, which has been slammed by pro-life groups, as a "a symbolic gesture ... to anti-choice Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI), which has diverted attention from the central goal."

"Planned Parenthood is also extremely pleased that members of the House listened to the millions of women and men who expressed their strong opposition to the Stupak abortion ban. Stopping the Stupak ban was a high priority," she said. "It was a tough fight, but we salute Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D- CA), Congressman Rosa DeLauro (D–CT) , members of the House Pro-Choice Caucus."

Despite Stupak's contention that the executive order would implement his abortion funding ban, Richards says that's not the case.

'What the president’s executive order did not do is include the complete and total ban ... that Congressman Bart Stupak (D–MI) had insisted upon," Richards said. "So while we regret that this proposed Executive Order has given the imprimatur of the president to Senator Nelson’s language, it is critically important to note that it does not include the Stupak abortion ban."

"Thanks to supporters like you, we were able to keep the Stupak abortion ban out of the final legislation and President Obama did not include the Stupak language in his Executive Order," Richards admitted.

Jill Stanek, a pro-life nurse and blogger, commented on the response from Planned Parenthood and described it as an a-ha moment.

"Now it all comes out. It didn't take long for Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards to revel in PP's financial gain from passage of healthcare in a Planned Parenthood statement just released. Note also Richards' dismissal of Obama's executive order," she said.

Planned Parenthood applauded "a provision to expand family planning under Medicaid, which would significantly increase access to essential preventive health care for millions of women" -- in other words increasing the abortion businesses' customer base.

Richards admitted as much, saying, “As a result of this historic expansion of health care coverage to more than 30 million Americans, the doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals who work for Planned Parenthood health centers will be providing care to many more" people.

Exactly, Big Murder knew that it was a hoax all along.

From an email I just got:

You have written, you have called, you have spread the word about the pro-abortion and ration-riddled heath care bill. You have been heroic. But yesterday we lost. We are downhearted, but we are not defeated.

“Trust in the Lord and do good”, my favorite verse, (Psalms 37:4) hangs on my wall as a continual reminder of what we called to do. Today is no different. In spite of what circumstances we see, God still rules and calls us to continue to do what is right. No matter what the law is, we can still speak the truth of life and continue to hold a hand of help and hope to women in an unplanned pregnancy and those who are ill. We will continue to save lives and change hearts. We will be faithful and our good and gracious God will bless our work and “make the justice of our cause like the noonday sun.” (Psalms 37:6). Our work, and the battle, is not over.

Democrats just handed the 2012 Republican candidate several winning issues on a silver platter.

I will sign the REPEAL of the obamacare travesty.

I will re-instigate the ban on federal funding of abortion.

I will sell the governments holdings in General Motors.

I will sell the governments holdings in various banks.

I will put any remaining prisoners at Gitmo on trial before military tribunals and execute those found guilty.

I will repeal the Obama tax hikes.

I will close the stimulus slush fund, and return the money to the treasury to pay down the debt.

And I will STOP bowing to dictators, the era of apologies is over.

At the same time the only reason groups like Army of God, etc., haven't been out torching and bombing Planned Parenthood has been the removal of the federal government from the abortion racket ~ up until now.

Another prediction ~ with the bars down to federal funding of abortion groups will spring up overnight to bring down Planned Parenthood one way or the other.

You don't even have to be involved in aspect of this debate to know that's going to happen.

The executive order was a cover that Obama gave to his footstool, Stupak, for a “yay” vote. The ruse is obvious to PP, and you can bet that Stupak has figured it out on his own.

If the Campaign Finance bill slap-down by the SCOTUS was a big jolt to Obama and the Democrats, the slap-down of this Health Scare Bill is going to leave a crack in the earth’s surface right at their doorstep.

It’s only a matter of time. Enjoy it while you can Barack, Nancy, Harry, and your Fascist minions, this sucka is going dowwwn.

Margaret Sanger-founder of Planned Parenthood
In Her Own Words

On the extermination of blacks:
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” (excerpted from: Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon)

I plan to send this to every member of the Black Caucus, Louise Slaughter, Bart Stupak, MY black “representatives”, and many black anchors in local news and remind them that DEMOCRATS LOVE PLANNED PARENTHOOD....and I plan to ALERT as many people in the next few months as possible, via phone calls, faxes, e-mail and snail mail.

I suggest everyone do the same.
They can’t hide from US or history.
Let’s educate the idiots!

The great irony here is that pro life conservatives are voluntarily subsidizing this. Through the taxes we pay and the T-bills we own, we’re paying for this just a surely as if we’d scratched a check to planned barrenhood.

National Right to Life, NRTL, bullied the House Republicans in November to vote for Stupak. As a result, HC passed the House.

NRTL more than anyone else is responsible for this whole mess, and they will have lakes of baby blood at their feet over the decades.

NRTL is a detestable, disgusting organization, on the level of Planned Parenthood.

I can’t even bring myself to make a joke about this.

The truth is that the Statists have amnesty up next so we replace the 40 million Americans who were killed in the womb with 20 million third world day laborers as citizens.

I’ll try to come up with a punchline tomorrow. Sorry. I don’t have one today.
