Planned Parenthood clinics saying no to abortion?

Who woulda thunk?!

In 2010, Planned Parenthood affiliates performed 329,445 abortions. Abortions made up 91% of the “pregnancy services” the clinics offered, but apparently it wasn’t enough to satisfy them.

At the end of 2010, Planned Parenthood told all its affiliates nationwide that they had to be providing abortion services by 2013 or else. Since the announcement, some Planned Parenthood affiliates have dropped out rather than comply. For example,

Planned Parenthood of South Central New York:

“This mandate will no doubt result in an increase in revenue for Planned Parenthood as well as an increase in the more than 329,000 lives the abortion chain ends in one year. Does that sound like women’s health?”

Planned Parenthood of South Texas:

“[This] is the ultimate evidence that Planned Parenthood’s chief concern is making money of abortion – not the health of vulnerable women and girls.”

There’s other evidence that Planned Parenthood’s real concern is profit, not women’s health, as they so often and so sanctimoniously proclaim.

  • A European drug manufacturer has publicly stated that 28 women have died worldwide after using RU 486 (aka, morning after pill, Plan B, chemical abortion).
  • As of last April, the FDA had reports of 2,207 adverse events related to the use of RU 486, including 14 deaths, 612 hospitalizations, 58 ectopic pregnancies, 339 blood transfusions, and 256 cases of infections in the United States alone.

Despite these statistics and the fact the FDA recommends the drug be used only under the close supervision of a physician, Planned Parenthood cooked up a plan to see it to women via high tech vending machines!

Webcam abortion

These so-called webcam or telemed abortions dispense RU-486 to women via a Skype-type video link. The women are never seen in person by a physician. Not only did Planned Parenthood decide to do this, but they actually fired a clinic manager for objecting to the plan.

This video is inspiring! The manager is the one that got fired. March 12, 2012 – “Former Planned Parenthood Manager Leads 40 Days for Life, Abortion Clinic Closes” [9:28]

THE HAPPY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Twenty five shopping days until Christmas.DW wants to put up our tree this weekend.I remember when I married her,her kids had never had a real tree.It was an annual thing when my children were young.We’d take the pickup,head to one of the many tree farms in the area and tramp through acres of trees to find just the right one.Then you take out the saw and kill a tree in honor of the season.We’d drag it out to the path where a tractor with a flatbed would come along and haul you and your tree back to the main building.While they tagged it and fed it through a machine to encase it in nylon netting we’d go into the little restaurant with the roaring fireplace and treat ourselves to some hot chocolate and a fresh donut.We’d sing carols all the way home and after much effort I would finally get the darn thing to stand up straight in the stand.It filled the whole room with a delightful smell and you almost ignored the constant watering and stepping on dried needles in your bare feet.We never left it up long after the holiday because these trees can ignite and be engulfed in a matter of seconds.We repeated this with SD and SS as long as they lived with us and SD still makes an event of it with her two daughters.SS is so tight with a dollar he makes Scrooge look like Santa,so they do the artificial tree thing,as we’ve done for years.This is one of the simple memories of family time that stay with you forever.
