White House Petition: Defund Planned Parenthood
Vivificat - From Contemplation to Action ^ | 12 January 2012 | Te骹ilo de Jes鷖

Brethren, Peace and Good to all of you in Jesus Christ.

I’ve created a petition in the WhiteHouse.gov website, asking the Obama Administration to cut government funds to Planned Parenthood.

As many of you may know already, in these times of budgetary constraints, nothing is more urgent than defunding private organizations whose contribution to the Nation is nil.

According to their own reporting, Planned Parenthood (PP) received over $1 billion in government funds, whereas for 2011-2012 alone PP received $542.4 million in government funding, which represents 45.2 percent of the group’s total annual budget.

On June 30, 2012, PP had net assets valued at $1,244.7 billion, of which $474.5 million was unrestricted, making this figure a virtual savings account. That a supposedly non-profit organization has that much in assets, and still receives government funding is scandalous. The bulk of their income came from abortions, not from prenatal care.

We need 25,000 signatures before February 13 to motivate the Administration to reply to our request. Kindly go to this URL to sign the petition:

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/defund-planned-parenthood-pp/JL7RTx5H

I’m counting on all of you to make this petition “go viral”.

Let’s make a difference by forcing the most pro-abortion administration to take a hard look at this issue.

Go in peace.

You believe me that stupid? Check out the site.

Besides, if the minions of Satan were out to get me - they are, but not the one’s in the White House necessarily - they can find out very speedily where I can be contacted.

They will also get to meet my Defender.

Are we still sending our petitions to the King?

Yeah, if we organise all the troops and get 25K signatures, he's obligated to respond!

And what do you guess the "response" will be? That it's a good idea and we'll do it?

Not likely. For ANY of the petitions that have been submitted. Strike that - there's one in the bunch that has at least an outside chance of being considered. Obama might decide that we really need a Death Star someday.

There are so many programs that the Federal Government is funding that it becomes impossible to pick one... there ought to be a petition naming the worst 1000 or so...

Another petition? Have patience, the White Hut will get to it. But first it has to handle the White House petition promoted here on three threads by the same poster to impeach president Obama. Patience.

I believe Congress controls the spending so we should be sending them the petition, make them take a look at the constitution.

Section. 8.

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

Grants are not debts, and The general welfare of the people has nothing to do with defending people from going to bed and making babies, nor does it have anything to do with their personal welfare.

The presodent is not ruler, i would not petition him for anything.

These White House petitions are becoming a joke. So much so that they will ignore this one as well ... unfortunately.
