EAST LANSING -- A California-based anti-abortion group plans to bring its traveling displays of billboards and placards featuring aborted fetuses to the Michigan State University campus and the freeways around Detroit and Ann Arbor next week.

The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform will first set up displays at MSU on Monday and Tuesday, director Gregg Cunningham said.

I wonder exactly when they think would be a good time?
I'm going way out on a limb and say.....NEVER.

Tell your Congresscritter to pass the Vitter amendment to STOP our taxdollars paying private abortionists - most of whom are PP employees. It's not only immoral - it's corporate welfare for baby killers.

BTW, this article is a clear admission on the part of PP that in the minds of many people there might actually be a connection between the trauma of death on 9/11 and death in the womb? If they weren't feeling that similarity, why would they bring it up?

"We're all in a different sphere right now than we were a year ago. People are frightened and scared. Now is not the time," said Robin Menin, president of Planned Parenthood Mid-Michigan Alliance.

Why is this a bad time? Why would the public be disturbed by photos of "blobs of tissue"? Hmmm...

"... pushing a religious view of the rights of women."

Uh, since when has this been a crime, or even wrong? Oh that's right, all religious views are oppressive because they limit our right to behave like animals.

Yep, I'd call that an admission on PP's part.

Funny timing abounds. At the same time as Planned Parenthood announced that over 100 of their final solution centers had received envelopes containing white powder, a big OP-Ed piece from Gloria Feldt (Head of PP), appears in our local paper. I would imagine that this piece appeared all over the country that day.

It looks like their massive anthrax scare hit exactly when they were having a propaganda offensive.

This timing reminds me of Mariah Carey having a nervous breakdown at exactly the same time that they launch the PR for the new movie about her. Yes. It could be real, but it could also be useful timing.

I don't back "Army of God" or any group like that.

As for my source, hell, I saw their commercial myself on Lansing's media.

I accept the fact that RvsW is settled law(although it's judicial activism - it should be a state issue), but my money should not be forced to fund them anyway, let alone their political stuff backing democraps.

We have established paper trail in my state on $60K of PP money that went to campaigns as well. They never account for funds in a way that would disallow "plausible deniability."

Note - the disruptor who asks the question is a new member and his screenname reversed is "knee jerk right winger." They all think they are so clever, don't they?

What is your opinion of the Army of God, which has been terrorizing Planned Parenthood for several years with mail that threatened to be infected with anthrax?

I would say the threat is bogus and probably instituted by PP as reason to stir up anti-Christian hate.

I can't swear to this, but I believe these Foundations can spend up to 5% of their money toward political activities. I also believe that TECHNICALLY, it's not political, but issue ads as long as it specifically isn't a candidate being endorsed. The NAAC[ommunist]P did the same crap.

It's like Andrew McKelvey with his Monster.com anti-2nd amendment group.

There's so many campaign finance laws out there, it's hard to keep track.

An official from Planned Parenthood advised abortion rights advocates to ignore the campaign, but criticized Cunningham's group for bringing it so soon after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11.

Just remember, my friends, this is the same group of people who offered FREE abortions in NYC after the 9/11 incident. Hypocrites!

A NATION THAT KILLS ITS OWN CHILDREN - IS A NATION WITHOUT HOPE.

I'd say this is a perfect time to remind people that abortion kills children.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD OFFERING FREE ABORTIONS AFTER ATTACK [Free Republic]


Some resources on Planned Parent Abortionhood:


Behind the Mask - A Hard Look at the Real Agenda of Planned Parenthood by Glenn T. Stanton (Published by Focus on the Family):

"Planned Parenthood: The Ultimate Masquerade: Read this eye-opening report and get the real story on one of the most radical, destructive social forces in our nation. Behind the Mask exposes Planned Parenthood's horrifying agenda and what's really going on in this federally funded agency with an annual budget of $450 million and a work force of 22,000 people."


Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood by George Grant (Published by Holly Hall Publications):

"Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood is an in-depth exposé stripping away the silver lining and revealing the rot within this powerful organization. As both sides continue their debate, now is better than ever to take a godly stand and make a difference in the direction society is heading!"


Planned Parenthood Legacy I-III by George Grant (CD of Broadcast, Published by Focus on the Family):

"Exposing the Shameful History of Planned Parenthood: Dr. George Grant joins Dr. Dobson for an in-depth discussion of Planned Parenthood's racist roots, systematic suppression of facts about abortion and false image as a "healthcare provider" for women. He exposes the real agenda of "pro-choice" activists and tells Christians what they can do to take a stand."

Right. And if this is not a good time to address the issue of abortion WHY is Planned Parenthood of New York offering FREE abortions in honor of the September 11 attack? Some people would have thought a monument would have been the right thing to do but Planned Parenthood "honors" death with more death.

The group in question, which Planned Parenthood and this reporter refrain from naming in hopes that they won't give them any helpful publicity, is Operation Rescue West. The caravan contains their "Truth Truck," which has vivid pictures on its sides of something the abortion-supporters would rather not have people see: Pictures of unborn and aborted babies.

Those who wish to inquire further into this matter can visit the Operation Rescue web site at http://operationrescue.org/

IMHO, this outfit is worthy of support by anyone who supports the right to life. They are prayerful, non-violent, but willing to confront the enemy wherever he is to be found.

O'Riley spoke to someone from Planned Parenthood about receiving this envelopes of white powder, none had Anthrax so in looks like a copycat hoxe

Becauses it not part of the real Anthrax attacks we need to be open to more then the usual suspects ....A fake hate crime perhaps?

Because it would be the dumbest thing in the world for the pro lifer to jump on the 911 bandwagon

which is predominantly controlled by right-wing apologists.

WTF?

Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather, Larry King, Brian Williams, Johnathan Alter, Eric Alderman, Washington Post, Tribune Papers, Knight-Ridder, NY Times, and Gannett papers are right wing?

You probably consider John Edwards a conservative.

Washington Times, NY Post, NY Daily News, WSJ, the entire staff of Faux News...and that's not even mentioning the tight right-wing control of Talk Radio.

That's about ALL the conservative papers there is outside of alternative publications. Why is talk radio popular? It's a different spin.

More people are blasted by CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC than Fox. The NY Times, Wash Post, La Times, etc are more prominate than the NY Post and Washington Times. Only the WSJ has the prominance of the three big freedom hating papers.

And before you yap about the "corporate media" which I know is coming, the corporations (Most who don't care about social issues) don't give a rip about what is on the air, as long as they make their money. It's a business.

The editors are very liberal, come from liberal journalism schools(which are the most liberal at colleges), and vote democrat. Barbara Walters even said that most of the media votes dem. Whatever. I don't know who he is. In my experience, "You probably (think)..." is a cheap argumentative device, followed by some ridiculous exaggeration.

He's a Klintonite Senator from North Carolina.

"These are people who are pushing a religious view of the rights of women. We feel terrorized," she said. "We think of them as the domestic Taliban."

Sorry honey, that dog won't hunt anymore. I don't think most Americans will think those who would prefer that babies not be torn limb from limb while in their mothers' wombs are the same as those who stone women to death for simply appearing out of their homes without a male escort.

Most people are beginning to realize what the unfettered right to abortion has done for this country. IT has coarsened our attitude toward life in general; the most obvious example being the more violent tendencies by young people in the last few years.

NOW is trying like hell to continue to demonize we who feel a baby should be protected, even from its own mother if she wishes to kill it in the womb. Remember she will only be pregnant for 9 months, after which she could give the baby away to someone who would LOVE to care for it; after an abortion, the baby will be dead FOREVER!

Fortunately governments are not allowed engage in viewpoint-based discrimination.

PP can pee up a rope all they want. No one cares, and the gov't can't do a thing about it.

Last week Planned Parenthood claimied they received at least 110 anthrax scare letters. This week they are now calling people who pray outside their killing centers or try to bring the truth to the public domestic terrorists and domestic Taliban.

I have never understood why with all their anthrax scare sites didn't shut down - Gloria Feldt, their President, appeared on TV and sent out a press release stating :it's business as usual. Why aren't their clinic sites shut down just like the Post Office building and the Hart Building?

Seems to me that Planned Parenthood doesn't want the truth squad out and is using Sept 11 and their anthrax scares (which to my knowledge have all proven to be negative findings) to demonize and shut down this Truth Convoy which has been in operation in several states for several months. Planned Parenthood needs to keep demonizing and marginalizing those of us who publicly witness against their killing operation thus keeping the public's eyes off the true nature of their cruel business.

Why isn't the media highlighting that Planned Parenthood received 100 anthrax letters? Greta Van Sustern on CNN interviewed a woman who blamed pro-lifers for these letters last week! Why won't the media show us the abortion procedures? Did you know that abortion is the most common surgery in the United States of America?

We must stop funding Planned Parenthood. As we speak today, the United Nations Population Fund (using our millions in tax support) are shipping abortive devices to those poor women in Afghanistan? Do you think Osama likes the idea of infertile and dead Afghan Muslim babies funded by us, Planned Parenthood International et al, and the United Nations?
