Breaking: Historic amendment to defund Planned Parenthod passes overwhelmingly in House
LifeSite ^ | Feb 18, 2011 | by Kathleen Gilbert

Posted on 02/18/2011 12:10:35 PM PST by Islander7

February 18, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a historic vote Friday afternoon, the US House voted to strike all federal funding for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Every year the abortion giant receives hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding.

The congressional body voted 240-185 in favor of the amendment, introduced by Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), to the 2011 Federal Spending Bill.

Immediately after the vote Rep. Pence released a statement saying: “This afternoon’s vote is a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life. By banning federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress has taken a stand for millions of Americans who believe their tax dollars should not be used to subsidize the largest abortion provider in America.

“The fact that Planned Parenthood not only left minor girls trapped in prostitution, but encouraged it, shows an incredible lack of humanity on their part. What goes on behind the windowless offices of Planned Parenthood, as Live Action’s videos show, is both saddening and shocking, but the fact that it has often been done with taxpayer dollars is indefensible.”

Even if it doesn't pass right now, the fact that the GOP is showing some GUTS is a great thing.

If the Senate+Obama blocks this, we'll get it done in 2013.

This is to defund for the current fiscal year so it must pass the Senate and both will have to override the certain obama veto.

The good news is for the new fiscal year if the House doesn’t appropriate the funds then there are no funds. The House must approve. Nothing zero or the senate can do about it.

As you can see, this as a symbolic vote that does nothing this fiscal year, but if the House sticks with this vote for next year’s funding it is over for PP.

It is like I explained to a priest who voted for Obama. The doctor who performs an abortion commits murder.

The politician who makes it legal for that doctor to kill that baby also commits murder.

And, the voter who votes for the politician who makes it legal for that doctor to kill that baby, likewise, commits murder.

Don’t know how this will turn out. Hope it ends with the Republicans remembering the balls that prompted them to vote for this in the first place. Regardless of whether Obama ‘signs’ a bill, the Senate cannot legally introduce fiscal considerations into a bill; that is the duty of the House. If the funding isn’t there, then it is left to Commander Zero to sign or not. If he signs and then tries to fund PP, he may have to take it out of Executive funds. The House should stay vigilent and anticipate this asshole’s potential responses. If they don’t, then screw them; this was just for show.

So, the Senate doesn't appropriate funds - it's only the House? Then, this bill does not need to go to the Senate? If that's true, that is FANTASTIC news!!! What a Godsend!

All spending bills must ORIGINATE in the House. Senate and Presidential approval must be obtained before such bills go into law.

I'm no expert, but all spending must be initiated in the House. It seems to me that if the House doesn't want to make an expenditure, they don't put it in the budget. Therefore, nobody else can introduce it. It looks to me that Planned Parenthood support is DOA -- at least that is what I sincerely pray.

Should have been done when the Republicans took the House and Senate back in ‘94 and certainly after Bush became president. To give Planned Parenthood public money to provide abortions of unborn children while a supposed pro-life Congress and pro-life president were in office is inexcusable.

..and let us not forget the EVIL origins of this satanic organization:

Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood

As you read on you will soon discover that I have primarily relied on material which can be readily found in books, audio-taped interviews, and public news sources. If you take the time to check my references, you will soon discover that there really are those who have publicly advocated the elimination of "human weeds" and "the cleansing of society." Indeed, to this very day your tax money is used to finance Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by Margaret Sanger. During the 1930s Margaret Sanger openly supported the Nazi plan for genetic engineering of the German population, and the propagation of a "super race." In Planned Parenthood's 1985 "Annual Report" leaders of that organization proclaimed that they were, "Proud of our past, and planning for our future." 3 How could anyone possibly claim to be proud of the organization founded by Margaret Sanger when history records that she wrote of the necessity of: "the extermination of 'human weeds' ...the 'cessation of charity,' ... the segregation of 'morons, misfits, and the maladjusted,' and ... the sterilization of 'genetically inferior races.'"4 Margaret Sanger published "The Birth Control Review." In that magazine she openly supported the "infanticide program" promoted by Nazi Germany in the 1930s, and publicly championed Adolf Hitler's goal of Aryan white supremacy. In the years prior to World War II Margaret Sanger commissioned Ernst Rudin, a member of the Nazi Party, and director of the dreaded German Medical Experimentation Programs, to serve as an advisor to her organization. In his excellent book "Killer Angel," George Grant chronicles the life and writings of Margaret Sanger, and painstakingly documents Sanger's plans for the genetic engineering of the human race. George Grant noted that in the 1920s Margaret Sanger wrote "The Pivot of Civilization" in which she called for: "The 'elimination of 'human weeds,' for the 'cessation of charity' because it prolonged the lives of the unfit, for the segregation of 'morons, misfits, and the maladjusted,' and for the sterilization of genetically inferior races.'"5 ccording to George Grant, Margaret Sanger believed that the unfit should not be allowed to reproduce. Accordingly, she opened a birth control clinic in: "The Brownsville section of New York, an area populated by newly immigrated Slavs, Latins, Italians, and Jews. She targeted the 'unfit' for her crusade to 'save the planet.'" 6 Nineteen years later, in 1939, Margaret Sanger organized her "Negro project," a program designed to eliminate members of what she believed to be an "inferior race." Margaret Sanger justified her proposal because she believed that: "The masses of Negroes ...particularly in the South, still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the increase among Negroes, even more than among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit..." 7 Margaret Sanger then went on to reveal that she intended to hire three or four Colored Ministers "to travel to various black enclaves to propagandize for birth control." She wrote: "The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the Minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." (emphasis added-Ed.) 8 As Margaret Sanger's organization grew in power, influence, and acceptance, she began to write of the necessity of targeting religious groups for destruction as well, believing that the "dysgenic races" should include "Fundamentalists and Catholics" in addition to "blacks, Hispanics, (and) American Indians." 9 As the years went by, Margaret Sanger became increasingly obsessed with her occultic beliefs. Along with her acceptance of the occult, she became increasingly hostile to both Christianity and the American precepts of individual freedom under God. Her distaste for America can be seen in her writings when she wrote: "Birth control appeals to the advanced radical because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism." 10 Margaret Sanger eventually embraced not only communism but theosophy as well. What is theosophy? It is a covert, occultic religion based upon the repudiation of God and the worship of Lucifer. In modern-day America, theosophy is one of the most powerful hidden (occult) forces working behind the scenes in New York City, Washington D.C., and across our nation today.

They are methodically denoting who and what they stand for even though all this legislation will not make it to Oboingo's Desk, An ADD moment isn't it sad I have no respect for 44 and I call him Oboingo. But back to our topic...

At the State level, many conservative Governor's are like wise dealing with important issues and proposing multiple budgetary realignments. Case in Point Wisconsin and now Michigan, serious as a heart-attack proposals.

What does Obama do?

Community Organize and literally thwart the limited Republic's duty at the State level ( WI ) with thuggery and downright immaturity by not going to the "Well" and casting the Nay vote and rallye the troops for the next election cycle if it is that egregious repeal it at the ballot box with new legislation and legislators, like we did with the Tea-Parties...

The Thwarting of the process from the executive branch IMHO reeks of an foul odor that gets it stink on all of us. We are enduring this broken child that in the private sector would be fired for pulling this crap.

IMHO I want him out of my life, just go away and cause a revolution and turmoil somewhere else you have a tie to, Kenya perhaps...
