Planned Parenthood head, Cecile Richards, says every person has the right to live. This may seem to be an odd statement given that PP kills more than 300,000 unborn babies a year.
The key point to understand here is that Richards doesn’t believe unborn babies deserve to be called “persons.” Science says they are alive and human, but they are classified under the law as PROPERTY.
Legal abortion is the ONLY so-called civil rights issue where a group of living, human Americans moved from being defined and protected as PERSONS under the law to being defined and disposable as PROPERTY under the law.
Slaves and women went the other way. Those were true civil rights advances. Legal abortion is not.

Miguel Estrada was nominated to the federal bench by President Bush but was filibustered by Democrats. He was asked if he would consider the job of solicitor general. “I would never accept a job that requires Senate confirmation or, for that matter, willingly place myself in any situation (e.g., a hearing room) in which convention requires that I be civil to Chuck Schumer.”

Cecile Richards said that if Planned Parenthood is defunded, she’s “terrified” that women won’t be able to get abortions. But haven’t they been telling us that federal funding of Planned Parenthood had ‘nothing’ to do with abortion? http://cvote.it/2maMYT3
SPEAKING OF STUPID! Democrats face a daunting 2018 landscape, with 10 senators up for reelection in states that Trump won. Making it more difficult, the party’s left flank is convinced that a full embrace of progressivism is the only way to return to power and are threatening primary challenges for Democratic lawmakers who don’t commit to full obstruction of President Trump’s agenda. http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/321685-left-threatens-trump-friendly-senators-with-primary-challenges
I’ll add more in comments if I see anything worth sharing.
Norma McCorvey, the pro-life movement’s most unlikely convert, died Saturday in Katy, Texas. She was 69. She is best known as the anonymous 21-year-old “Jane Roe” in the Texas case that led to the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand in every state. She never had an abortion herself. She converted to Christianity in 1995, became a Catholic in 1998 and was an outspoken opponent of abortion for the rest of her life.
Planned Parenthood is singing the blues, claiming how they’ll be unable to provide essential health care to women if they don’t keep getting government money. Yet they somehow have the money to increase President Cecile Richard’s salary by a whopping 265%, from $360,902 in 2006 to $957,952!
Trump: I’d love to meet with the Black Caucus
“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace noted that President Obama froze out conservative outlets while he was in office, but the mainstream media didn’t get their panties in a bunch about that was somehow threatening the First Amendment.
“There’s a First Amendment, but there isn’t a ‘mainstream is entitled to ask the first question’ in the Constitution, which might be a surprise to some of my colleagues.”
While services other than abortion decreased, President Cecile Richards’ income has increased by 228%.
- In 2010, she was paid $420,153.
- In 2014 (the latest year reported), she was paid a whopping $957,952!
The statistics in this graphic are from Planned Parenthood’s own records.
Obama recently said, “Americans need to stop demonizing Planned Parenthood.”
With all due respect, Mr. President, you need to stop demonizing Americans.
Planned Parenthood and its apologists frequently claim that abortion comprises only 3% of the services the abortion giant performs. This figure is based on counting every little thing as a single service.
E.g., If one woman comes in during January for her annual and receives a breast exam, a vaginal exam, a PAP smear, a pregnancy test, an STD test, and a birth control pill prescription, PP counts it as six services. If she comes in once a month for the rest of the year to pick up her pills, PP counts it as eleven services. If she has a positive pregnancy test, she then sees a counsellor to discuss her choices. Two more services. The counsellor may hand her a flyer about adoption, then schedule her for an abortion. Two more services. Planned Parenthood counts the part where they dismember a living baby as just another single service that is no more nor less significant than handing her a flyer.
Here are some more more or less significant facts which Planned Parenthood’s own CEO admitted during her under-oath testimony before Congress in September 2015:
- 86% of Planned Parenthood’s non-government revenue comes from abortion.
- Planned Parenthood does not now and has never in the past provided mammograms.
- If Congress defunded Planned Parenthood, it would have no effect on its health services.
- In 2014, Planned Parenthood’s CEO was paid $590,000 by the tax-funded non-profit.
Speaking of ABORTION FOR PROFIT, Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards, makes more than half a million dollars a year to promote the abortion giant.
She is therefore understandably pissed that Texas has decided to shift funding from her personal cash cow to the hundreds of community clinics that provide the same health care services, minus the baby killing thing.
Richards claims that NOT giving Planned Parenthood tax dollars is “illegal and a violation of federal law.” Hard to figure how, when you look at this map.
A conservative estimate of Planned Parenthood’s finances shows that the organization profits $500 on average for each abortion. IOW, Richards annual salary is the equivalent of 1,072 dead babies per year.

Planned Parenthood and its lapdogs continue to parrot the lie that the undercover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress were “deceptively edited” and “highly doctored.”
These videos, of course, were the ones that exposed Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal and morally repugnant harvesting of fetal body parts for profit.
Each time an edited video has been released, the full length footage it was cut from has also been publicly posted as well. https://www.youtube.com/user/centerformedprogress
Two different digital forensic companies have analyzed the CMP footage and reported that:
– all the videos are “authentic and show no evidence of manipulation or editing.’”
– footage missing from the shorter videos was of “non-pertinent” events like bathroom breaks.
– none of the edits or cuts in the shorter videos distort the meaning of the conversations depicted.
Planned Parenthood’s Mammo-sham is well depicted in this quick video.
Richards also continues to spout the 3% lie. An examination of Planned Parenthood’s financial records shows that 96% of pregnant women who go to Planned Parenthood do so to have their babies killed.
Lawmakers are considering canceling Planned Parenthood’s government subsidy and giving the money to the more than 13,000 comprehensive health care facilities across the United States that serve women, without doing abortions.
As long as abortion is legal, Planned Parenthood can continue killing babies for profit. But the loss of taxpayer funding might mean the PP honchos now pulling down half a mill a year might have to cut back on their life styles. Say … opt for Toyotas instead of Lamborghinis?
