Federally Funded Planned Parenthood Launches All Out Attack Against Bush Judicial Nominee
Planned Parenthood E-Mail | February 8, 2002 | Planned Parenthood

Posted on 02/08/2002 5:29:26 PM PST by IM2Phat4U

Dear Baby,

You are getting this message because one of your U.S. Senators sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee. To speak out against Judge Charles Pickering, the current anti-choice judicial nominee, simply reply to this message and hit "send".

On Thursday, February 7, the Senate Judiciary Committee held its second hearing on the nomination of Judge Charles M. Pickering, Jr. to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. At the first hearing on October 18, 2001, Judge Pickering's answers did not shed sufficient light on his position on reproductive choice. At yesterday's hearing, Judge Pickering's testimony failed to assure the American public that he will safeguard the rights to privacy and reproductive choice.

Judge Pickering's record reveals deep-rooted opposition to reproductive rights and hostility toward other civil rights. Judge Pickering poses a clear and present danger to all people's participation in the economic, social and political life of our nation. President Bush's judicial nominees should all come with a warning label: 'Beware...May Be Hazardous to Women's Health and Civil Rights.' Judge Pickering is no exception.

Because the overwhelming majority of cases are decided by the lower federal courts, it will be the judges on those courts--like Judge Pickering--who determine the future of the federal courts and their role in protecting individual rights, including privacy and reproductive freedom.

The letter that will be sent to your Senator is included below:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I am writing to you to oppose the nomination of Mississippi federal district court judge Charles M. Pickering, Sr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Throughout his career, Judge Pickering has demonstrated hostility towards reproductive rights:

-In 1984, when Judge Pickering was the president of the Mississippi Baptist Convention, he presided over a meeting where the Convention adopted a resolution calling for legislation to outlaw abortion except when necessary to preserve a woman's life.

-In 1979, as Mississippi state senator, Judge Pickering voted for a resolution calling for a constitutional convention to propose an amendment that would have banned abortion.

-In 1976, Judge Pickering chaired the subcommittee of the Republican Party's Platform Committee that adopted a plank calling for a constitutional amendment that would have overruled Roe v. Wade. Judge Pickering spoke in support of that plank on the floor of the Republican convention that year.

Because the overwhelming majority of cases are decided by the lower federal courts, I am concerned that judges appointed to these courts be committed to safeguarding the rights to privacy and reproductive choice as set forth in Roe v. Wade and the earlier Supreme Court decisions upon which Roe rests. At his hearings before the Judiciary Committee, Judge Pickering failed to assure the American public that he supports Roe v. Wade and that he will fully protect a woman's right to choose.

I implore you not to confirm Judge Pickering. His record reveals deep-rooted opposition to reproductive rights and hostility toward other civil rights, and he has failed to assure the American people that he will protect their basic freedoms. Judge Pickering poses a clear and present danger to all people's participation in the economic, social and political life of our nation.

This federally funded organization is just warming up for World War III when President Bush nominates a pro-lifer to the Supreme Court. It is time to defund this organization. The GOP House must block any federal funds from going to Planned Parenthood. Bush must veto any bill that contains fund for Planned Parenthood. Defund our enemies! Defund the left!

And of course, contact your Senators and urge them to approve Judge Charles Pickering. It is time for freepers to forget about cheese, moose and Brittany - - and get to work!

Another reason for the Republican controlled House to defund Planned Parenthood.

The President knows what this Senate is capable of...and this Senate cares nothing about the will of the people. Patrick Leahy, John Edwards on the judiciary committee means that personal attacks and demonizing will be the rule. Freep the judiciary committee, and Jeffords...and Planned Parenthood. Ping.

I hope he will safeguard the right to privacy and the right to reproduce. Don't want this place to end up like China, as the national socialists at planned parenthood want it to become.

What hypocrites.

When Democrats are picking judges, they whine incessantly about the horror of Republicans using a 'litmus test'.

They have blood on their hands, and one day soon they are going to find out that there is a much higher judicial power they are going to have to deal with...and it ain't no committee.

I hope so. And I hope there are many, many great minds out there all aware of how important this nomination is. As your other post makes clear, the left is fine-tuning its borking machine. Making sure it is in working order for when the bigger one comes along.

If Pickering goes down easy and the Bush adminstration is afraid to fight, the left will will increase its targets.

Freepers need to get back in fighting shape and stand up for Pickering.

I recommend subscribing to federally funded Planned Parenthood's Action Network with the name of your choice so that you can see what the enemy (that you subsidize with tax dollars) is up to.

Institutionalized serial killing of prenatals is not 'reproductive choice'; serial killing is serial killing, and planned infanticide, inc intends to defend the heinous behavior until they are stopped. Talk about an endangered species! Humans who will not defend the right to individual life already begun, allowing liars and ghouls to parade serial killing as enlightened social policy, are in sad shape for the long haul of species. [That last sentence is the signal for closet eugenicists to speak up on behalf of enlightened serial killing of individual human beings being alive in the womb. Grab the barf bags!]

"Judge Pickering poses a clear and present danger to all people's participation in the economic, social and political life of our nation."

Have you ever noticed that this evil organization transfers their misdeeds to the good guys?

There is no other business like BIG ABORTION that has done more damage to the economic,social and political life of our nation than Planned Parenthood et al.

Some U.S. Population and Profile Figures from 1993 published in 1994 U.S. Abstract:
Age 45+ 80,629,000
Age 18-44 108,294,000
Age 5-17 46,654,000
Under 5 19,512,000

Where are the future taxpayers to take care of this aging top heavy pyramid?

Allan C. Carlson of The Rockford Institute has claimed that "It appears that the long-term negative economic impact of abortions performed in the United States since 1970 approaches $2 trillion annually." (courtesy of 1997 March for Life Fund and Annual Report.)

Congress stop funding PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

We all know what's happening here. Last year Trent Lott, the Republican Senate leadership and yes, even the Bush administration, allowed Jim Jeffords to get away and now all of the President's judicial nominees will have a very difficult time getting out of committee and onto the full Senate, for a floor vote. IMO, this is the biggest and most serious mistake that Bush has made, so far. I hope theres no repeat like this one in the future. At least for the remainder of 2002, this situation will really hamper efforts by the Bush people in getting more conservative judges into the federal court system. And, if Republican's don't retake the Senate, continued Democrat control will leave Bush in a very weak position. This will have a tremendous long term, negative effect on just who will reach confirmation and eventually hold a seat on the USSC. Believe it!

Why does the letter open with "dear baby"?

More double-speak from the anti-life crowd. Perhaps someone from their fine organization could explain to me how killing fetuses amounts to 'family planning'. And the natural biological process of pregnancy and childbirth, ordained by our Creator to propagate the human species is a threat to 'women's health', while abortion, condemned by all major religions, is supposed to be wholesome and therapeutic? 'Hypocritical' hardly begins to describe their twisted thought processes.

Yesterday there was a posting here about a slut in upstate NY State who, along with her three little bastards, is on the dole. She was saying she would not be interested in marrying any of their fathers even if the government financially encouraged it.

So to your question "Why are my tax dollars going to support PP?", I might add,
"Why are my tax dollars going to support her and her little bastards?"
