Planned Parenthood accomplished this barbaric act using $542.4 million dollars they received from what the report calls "government health services grants and reimbursements," which included "payments from Medicaid managed care plans."
WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) - The introductory letter accompanying Planned Parenthoods 2011- 2012 Annual Report was co-signed by Cecilia Boone, the Chair of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Cecile Richards, the organizations President. Their smiling photos are included at the top of the letter.
The letter began with this despicable and profane claim: "This past year will be remembered as the year Planned Parenthood declared its commitment to making the next generation the healthiest ever". That is unless you were numbered among the 333,964 of our youngest neighbors - children in the first home of the whole human race - who were killed as a result of the procured abortions this Organization funded.
They were to be included in that next generation - now they are dead. Who knows who they might have been and who they might have become. Who knows the unique contribution they might have made to our life together.
Planned Parenthood accomplished this barbaric act using $542.4 million dollars they received from what the report calls "government health services grants and reimbursements," which included "payments from Medicaid managed care plans." You can read the entire report here. The report boasts that the organization now has assets which exceed one billion dollars.
Planned Parenthood is built on a lie. They dress themselves up as a Health Care Provider and include the taking of the lives of innocent children in the womb as a "service" under their offering of "reproductive services". Their web site tells visitors they are "America's most trusted provider of reproductive health care". Really? Ask the victims. Sorry, you can't.
Planned Parenthood has insinuated itself into the global delivery of "medical services" and receive massive government funding as this report confirms. Included in these purported "medical services" is the intentional killing of children in the womb by abortion.
In the introduction to the 2007-2008 Planned Parenthood report they claimed, "Planned Parenthood is the leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate and provider, with 93 years under our belt. And in the near future, we will play a unique role in helping to shape the health agenda for the new administration."
This latest annual report confirms that they have achieved that goal with the current Federal Administration as their willing and eager partner. In the opening pages of the last years report they took credit for helping to "shape and pass the Affordable Care Act". If the implementation of that Act continues on its current trajectory the implications are frightening.
Planned Parenthood continues to pull off a ruse on the American public. A ruse is an action intended to deceive. They dress themselves up as a "Health Care Provider" and include deliberately taking the life of children as a service under their definition of "reproductive services". There is nothing reproductive about abortion. The taking of innocent human life is not health care. It is certainly not a service to the child, the mother, the father or society.
Every time I read about Planned Parenthood and see the smiling face of its leaders I am reminded of my childhood, reading Superman comics. I date myself by mentioning the Bizarro world. However, many of my readers will remember the strange upside down world of the Bizarro's.
The Bizarro's inhabited a planet called "Htrae" ("Earth" spelled backwards). Their code was "Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!" Planned Parenthood promotes a Bizarro world.
Planned Parenthood must be exposed, opposed and defunded. This is happening on the State level all over the country and the efforts must continue. Authentic Health Care Providers who truly provide health care services - and respect the fundamental human right to life - should receive their funding. They should also compete with them at every level.
Planned Parenthood charges women, many of whom have been deceived and are themselves the second victims, for killing their own children. The "medical professionals" who carry out the evil act use surgical strikes, brutal suction or what they euphemistically now call a "medication abortion" (chemical weapons) to cause their death. Then, they are paid for the evil act with our tax dollars.
Every procured abortion is the intentional taking of innocent human life in the first home of the whole human race. Every person alive today began their human life in that sanctuary of life, the womb. No one with any integrity or genuine moral sensibility any longer claims that the child in the womb, whom we now surgically operate on and can see clearly in 4D images, is not a human being.
The argument being made to try and justify this killing of our youngest neighbors is the perverse idea that "freedom" enables the one with more power to hire a so called "medical professional" to reach inside the sanctuary of the womb and take the life of a vulnerable and innocent child. Of course, we would not make the same argument about a one year old child living outside of the womb, in the nursery.
There is no moral distinction between what Planned Parenthood does and the intentional killing of a child outside of the womb. In addition, the time thresholds of "viability" under the inane structure forced upon us by the Supreme Court's Roe and Doe decisions keep getting pushed back as our technology reveals the truth about our smallest neighbors. Science has confirmed what our consciences have known all along, every procured abortion kills a child.
In April of 2011, a 21 week prematurely born baby girl named Freida survived and went home with her parents. Yet, babies that age and older are routinely killed by abortion. Planned Parenthood is one of the largest organizations engaged in such activity, using our tax dollars.
Our positive law has rejected the Natural Law Right to Life and its prohibition against these intentional homicides committed against our youngest neighbors through procured abortions. Until the positive law is changed to reflect the truth, our tax dollars must no longer be used to engage in this evil.
We should do all that we can, in every State in the United States, to defund Planned Parenthood.
