PP Health Systems of Charlotte

A video highlighting a North Carolina Planned Parenthood founder fails to mention that she founded the center with help from a man connected to eugenics.

Sarah Bryant PP

It begins, “Planned Parenthood Health Systems of Charlotte began in 1969 when Sarah Bryant saw an unmet need.”

Now an old woman, Ms. Bryant says that she started the Planned Parenthood center at the urging of well known eugenicist Wallace Kuralt and other business leaders. “then Mr. Art Jones who was a banker and Mr. Wallace Kuralt who was the chairman, head of the county health commission, urged me to start Planned Parenthood. They had been involved and had known about Margaret Sanger when they were in [ Oberlin] college. So, that was the beginning.”

Sarah Bryant PP Charlotte

Planned Parenthood was founded on eugenics. Their founder , Margaret Sanger, was a member of the American Eugenics Society and she placed other like-minded believers on her board. This has been well documented by this blog on several occasions.

Ms. Bryant concludes the recently uploaded Planned Parenthood PSA by admitting that their agenda has not changed, “The face may change but the mission is the same…. ,” she states.

Bryant was the wife of the late funeral director Bob Bryant, and in the early 1960’s she asked many of Charlotte’s most powerful bankers, lawyers, ministers, doctors, teachers and community servants to join her on a Planned Parenthood board.

In 1971, two years before abortions were legalized, the agency opened its first health Planned Parenthood center on Morehead Street.

It began after Wallace Kuralt and banker Art Jones approached Bryant to start the Planned Parenthood health center, “We were like a Third World country in that area at the time,” she once stated.

An ardent proponent of population control, in 1969 Jones predicted that, “Unless something is done, the human race is threatened with extinction within 200 years.” His ultimate solution was: abortion calling it a “very necessary medical tool for population restraint.

Arthur Jones NC abortion

Jones was responsible for North Carolina’s passage of a liberal abortion law in 1967 and blamed the “overpopulation” problem on a growing number of social ills: poverty, ghettos, crime, and mental illness.

Much of the idea for Jone’s abortion bill came from Wallace Kuralt, according to author David Gurrow.

Kuralt proposed that the abortion law’s focus be on the “health of the mother.” Kuralt and a welfare department attorney, Myles Hanes, wrote out a first draft of the abortion reform bill and presented it to Senator Herman Moore who mentioned it to Jones.

Just who was Wallace Kuralt?

Wallace Kuralt father to Charles Kuralt , who anchored CBS Sunday Morning , was a MONSTER – he was rooted in eugenics and not surprisingly in 1983 Planned Parenthood of Greater Charlotte gave him the Margaret Sanger Award – according to a Charlotte Observer Obituary from 1994.

The Charlotte Observer described Wallace Kuralt this way, “as architect of Mecklenburg’s program of eugenic sterilization – state-ordered surgery to stop the poor and disabled from bearing children – Kuralt helped write one of the most shameful chapters of North Carolina history.”

When we stop to reflect upon the thousands of physical, mental and social misfits in our midst,” the Observer quotes Kuralt from a 1964 article, “the thousands of families which are too large for the family to support, the one-tenth of our children born to an unmarried mother, the hoard of children rejected by parents, is there any doubt that health, welfare and education agencies need to redouble their efforts to prevent these conditions which are so costly to society?

The Eugenics Details:

A 1965 article published by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette says that Wallace Kuralt had been involved in a birth control program which saved the tax payers thousands of dollars. There it is plain and simple- that excuse for eugenics that – limiting births saves the taxpayer money.

“We have been just as concerned,” Wallace Kuralt observed,”to see that couples who could not have children were directed to the proper medical sources for help as we were to see that families who should not have more children were directed to the proper sources of information,” Kuralt told the Milwaukee Sentinel in 1965.

So, exactly who are the people who should not have more children? Well, research unearthed recently has revealed that most of them were Black women. In fact, North Carolina is one of the few states which has publicly apologized for the state wide Eugenics program which sterilized thousands of blacks. North Carolina has even made their eugenics documents available to the public and has since offered reparations to the victims of sterilization.

Kuralt PP

Entitled: Wallace Kuralt’s era of sterilization, the Charlotte Observer detailed the acts of monstrosity by this Planned Parenthood Award Winner and true to form- they failed to mention the award !

As the New York Times describes Kuralt’s eugenics connections, “wealthy businessmen, among them James Hanes, the hosiery magnate, and Dr. Clarence Gamble, heir to the Procter & Gamble fortune, drove the eugenics movement. They helped form the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947, and found a sympathetic bureaucrat in Wallace Kuralt, the father of the television journalist Charles Kuralt.

“A proponent of birth control in all forms, Mr. Kuralt used the program extensively when he was director of the Mecklenburg County welfare department from 1945 to 1972. That county had more sterilizations than any other in the state.

“Over all, about 70 percent of the North Carolina operations took place after 1945, and many of them were on poor young women and racial minorities. Nonwhite minorities made up about 40 percent of those sterilized, and girls and women about 85 percent.

“The program, while not specifically devised to target racial minorities, affected black Americans disproportionately because they were more often poor and uneducated and from large rural families.”

Another interesting connection is that the doctor who worked with Kuiralt also had Planned Parenthood ties.

According to the Charlotte Observer, many of the women sterilized in the late 1950s were seen by the Health Department’s Dr. Elizabeth Corkey, an obstetrician.

It is noteworthy to point out that Corkey joined in a lawsuit to overturn North Carolina’s abortion ban in 1970.

Dr. Corkey died Thursday, August 24, 1995, but according to the obituary in the Charlotte Observer, she helped start the Charlotte chapter of Planned Parenthood. Corkey’s connection to the abortion giant is documented on the Planned Parenthood website – here. And in this 1964 article she is a speaker at a Planned Parenthood conference.

Kuralt and Corkey sent dozens of sterilization cases to the Eugenics Board for approval.

According to the Charlotte Observer, in 1960, just under 25 percent of Mecklenburg residents were African-American.

But blacks made up more than 80 percent of the people ordered sterilized at the request of the Welfare Department between 1955 and 1966. In 1957, the peak year for Mecklenburg, the state approved sterilizations of 52 blacks and five whites.

This news comes on the heals of MANY North Carolina Eugenics Victims coming forward to tell their horrors- those responsible for funding the North Carolina Eugenics Society associated with Planned Parenthood and the details are here under the victim name: Elaine Riddick


A great documentary about this Eugenics relationship of Planned Parenthood is the film: Maafa21 - see a clip here http://www.maafa21.com – watch it in full it is a stunning film !

Pro-choicers to lay wreaths at abortion clinic Alter during mock Funeral

Posted in Abortion Sacred with tags , , , , , , , on November 13, 2014 by saynsumthn

Originally published at the Life Dynamics Blog!

Abortion rights advocates in Tennessee are organizing a “mock funeral” Saturday to mourn the loss of “reproductive rights” after the pro-life measure, Amendment 1 passed in the state, where they will march past an alter outside a Memphis abortion clinic.

Funeral Memphis abortion organizers

Tennessee voters approved Amendment 1 on Nov. 4. The pro-life measure reads, “nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother.”

As the Commercial Appeal reports, the morning after the Nov. 4 election, pro-choicer organizers Sarah Ledbetter and Bethany Bak were upset about the passage and began texting opponents of the pro-life amendment.

Funeral Memphis abortion article

I regard reproductive rights as civil rights,” Ledbetter said. “From what I understood about the amendment, it was a move to curtail those rights. So there’s nothing right about that in my world view.”

The abortion advocate took to Facebook to organize what she calls the 2ND LINE FUNERAL FOR EVERYONE’S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS.

Funeral on Reproductive Rights Memphis

The event post reads, “Meet at Noon at the Overton Park Shell.. then TAKE to the streets in your fanciest black garb, your tennis shoes, and your dancing umbrella. Join your fellow Memphians who choose to act out, to sing, and to dance our belief in the human and CIVIL right to CHOOSE your OWN adventure.”

Second line parades, famous to New Orleans, are marked with dancing and music in the street.

It’s not a protest,” Ledbetter said. “It’s a funeral. We are mourning and grieving and celebrating what’s possible. Nothing is written in stone until we all give up.”

Choices Memphis abortion

Organizers say that an alter will be placed in front of Choices abortion clinic in Memphis, where, according to Ledbetter, “you may place funeral wreaths, flowers, and photos of loved ones whose lives have been touched by reproductive health needs and choices. From there we high step it and dance our spirits up to the skies!

Ledbetter is the Co-Founder at Memphis Dance Makers Workshop, Movement Educator & Artist at Company d and Farm Hand, Dancer at Delta Sol Farm.

The group has uploaded a YouTube of the songs they plan to use at the “funeral”!

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas responded to the charade by pointing out that abortion advocates know how to make funerals, “It’s what they specialize in,” he said.

Should we be surprised that an industry which protects men who sexually assault children would include men who sexually assault children?” ~ Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc.

ChildPorn Headline Michaelis
Today, Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas has responded to the indictment of an Ohio abortion doctor with a history of sexually explicit crimes involving children.

According to reports, 69 year-old abortion doctor, Thomas William Michaelis has voluntarily surrendered his medical license after being indicted on Federal charges of receiving and distributing child pornography. Michaelis had recently worked as an abortionist at Capital Care Network abortion clinic in Toledo.

Authorities say they focused on Michaelis’ illegal activities between January and May, 2014.

Michaelis Porn Charges

According to the indictment, Michaelis received and distributed child porn images between April and May of this year. He possessed and accessed one or more websites containing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct between January and May.

Thomas Michaelis Booked

Public documents show Michaelis is a doctor with a history of abusing minors. Documents state he admitted to sexually explicit crimes involving his teenage daughter’s friends.

According to the pro-life group, Operation Rescue, in 1991, the Ohio Medical Board cited Michaelis after he had been convicted of Attempted Gross Sexual Imposition, Voyeurism, Public Indecency, all involving minor girls. Michaelis had engaged in sexual “touching” and other advances on girls in their early teens who had come to his home to play with his daughter.

In that case, Michaelis gave testimony that he watched a minor girl partially undress, attempted to touch another minor girl on her bottom, and attempted to touch a third minor child on her breasts. The abortion doctor also admitted that he exposed himself to a forth minor child. In 1991, Michaelis was sentenced to 15 months in prison, but ended up serving only 60 days.

Medical Board Docs Michaelis

The Board finally revoked Michaelis’ license but reinstated it a few years later after Michaelis complied with a number of requirements imposed by the Board, including an order for him to submit to counseling.

Thomas Michaelis Mug
The abortion doctor was last known to have been working at a Toledo abortion clinic when his license was revoked in May, during the time of the investigation.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc. said this indictment was,” typical of the character of the people we deal with in the abortion industry on a daily basis.”

Crutcher and his team have recently published several criminal case summaries showing that the abortion industry covers for men who sexually abuse children.

ChildPredator W Website Sarah 37244037_n

The report, entitled, “The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse”, shows clearly that the failure of abortion clinics to comply with mandatory reporting laws is having profound, real-world consequences for the victims of child sexual abuse. Read the report here.

After reviewing Michaelis’ history Crutcher said he was not surprised that he was working at an abortion clinic, Should we be surprised that an industry which protects men who sexually assault children would include men who sexually assault children?” Crutcher asked.

Lime5 Sarah Ad

Crutcher has detailed the rape of and sexual assault of abortion patients in a book he authored years ago entitled, Lime 5, and said he and his team are in the process of updating that research.

He said that when he finishes this latest report, the public will be shocked to discover that abortion doctors like Thomas William Michaelis are not isolated.

Abortion Doula: you can love your baby and also kill it?

Posted in Abortion Doula with tags , , , , , , on October 29, 2014 by saynsumthn

Vanessa Norton is an abortion Douala who volunteers with the Bay Area Doula Project.

Norton brags that at one point in her life she defended abortion clinics against Operation Rescue.

AB doula My Year

Norton has published an article in response to abortion Doula, Alex Ronan’s article, “My Year as an Abortion Doula,” calling much of it sensationalized and saying that it, “misrepresented abortion doula work and abortion in general.”

Among the statements which Norton took issue with was that Ronan’s language painted clinic staff negatively, the patients passively, and “almost romanticizes fetal remains,” she complains,”The attending doctor “barks commands,” a nurse “shoves a bucket,” a patient “stares blankly,” or even worse, when reconsidering her abortion, doesn’t know what she wants. Meanwhile, the fetus “sleeps like me,” looks like a “doll arm.”

Norton then adds, “What is never touched upon in the article is what I see as the most important piece of this abortion doula work: why do it? It can be emotionally and physically taxing, it doesn’t pay, it’s sometimes hard; it’s sometimes boring.”

Despite Norton’s disdain for Ronan’s abortion Douala story, I found hers just as shocking.

A few statements by Norton popped out for me.

My friend/doula who witnessed my abortion said to me, “you can love your baby and also kill it.” It was closest to what I felt when I decided to have an abortion.”

Norton also states that, “After having two abortions myself, witnessing several abortions, and touching just as many festus–babies–products of conceptions, I have never felt closer to the fact that no matter what choice is made, it is forever for that pregnant person...”

Perhaps that messed up mindset is how she can also be in awe of a baby being born.

Below is a screen grab of Norton’s Twitter page and a tweet from November, “Witnessed a baby emerge into the world yesterday afternoon. Like nothing else!”

The impact of seeing abortion victim images from Created Equal

Chasing Untitled1

A group put together by Chasing New Jersey, a news broadcast which airs on Fox29 Philly, reveals the impact that showing graphic abortion images has on those never exposed to the truth of what killing babies in the womb looks like.

In the film, young people watch a video of an abortion shown publicly on a jumbotron by the pro-life group, Created Equal, recently in Philadelphia at the Liberty Bell Mall.

Jumbotron Created Equal

The responses are very telling for those who criticize abortion imagery !

Several viewers turn their heads and some gasp.

Others hide their eyes.

Created Equal Shown 3. jpg

One is heard saying, “Wow! Graphic!

Another viewer: “Disturbing!”

Another, “Difficult!”

The host says, “that is as quiet as this room has ever been.”

A women responds, “there’s’ nothing to say, it’s absolutely heartbreaking.”

The group debates whether showing these images and videos in a public venue is good. Some say yes others no – some think it is only a free speech issue – others want it banned.

Untitled

The over-all effect of what Created Equal did by showing these abortion images can be summarized by this viewer who said, “Regardless of how you feel on the issue, if their goal was to get you to invoke these emotions, then these visual images for the word abortion – then they did a great job. I’m never going to forget that for the rest of my life.”

watch:

The use of abortion victim imagery is debated among pro-life people. However, pro-choicers are scared of it.

carol-costello-CNN portrait-left-teaseThis week, CNN Journalist Carol Costello who anchors the 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET edition of CNN’s “Newsroom” each weekday, asked why women who have abortions aren’t using extreme methods like these to promote abortion?

“Abortion rights activists have told me that such “extremist tactics” have been an effective tool of the anti-abortion side of the debate for decades. If the group, Created Equal, can project bloody, allegedly aborted fetuses on a 10-by-12-foot screen next to Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell to try and prove that abortion is murder, then why shouldn’t women who have abortions use extreme methods to try and prove it’s not,” Costello stated.

Not Alone

Sherry Merfish founder of the Not Alone project, an abortion effort to encourage women to share stories of killing their children without regret, suggested that women telling their abortion story will keep people from thinking about the “proverbial bloody fetus.”

“We’re not saying that every person will make a video, but the ones who do will offer encouragement to other people to tell their story. By telling your story to anyone, you are combating the stigma. You are eradicating stigma as a woman who is open about her life and instructs others to do the same. So that the next time someone says the word ‘abortion,’ the hope is that that person you told won’t think about the proverbial bloody fetus, they instead will think about you: a person who they love and respect and made this decision,” Merfish stated.

While the pro-life community continues to debate using abortion victim images, it would appear that the pro-choice community knows their impact is working, just say’n !

Planned Parenthood quotes religious leaders to promote “reproductive rights” code for abortion

Posted in Abortion Religion - see RCRC, Abortion Sacred, Planned Parenthood Clergy, Religious Coalition of Reproductive Choice with tags , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2014 by saynsumthn

We all know by now that Planned Parenthood uses God to sell abortion.
Planned Parenthood pastoral letter Header.

In fact, this blog broke the news that the abortion giant had published a Clergy / Pastoral Letter to convince women in a crisis pregnancy that there is nothing in the scriptures that says abortion is wrong and that many clergy think abortion is okay.

A second letter published by Planned Parenthood and exposed by this blog tells women that, “abortion is a morally permissible choice for a woman facing a problem pregnancy…and that the decision to have an abortion will not threaten your relationship with God.”

Now, we discover that Planned Parenthood has used religion to promote “reproductive rights” code for abortion, in a newsletter they published last year.

PP Faith Jew

In the 2013 Fall edition of ,The Source, a newsletter published by Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, they interview supporters from diverse spiritual points of view.

Lee Lee Doyle

They begin with Planned Parenthood Board Member, Lee Lee Doyle, PhD, who says she considered becoming a nun but changed her mind just before being confirmed. She then suggests that her interest in being a nun is what led her to commit to promoting abortion – uhhhh – correction “reproductive rights”, “Faith can serve as a vehicle to bring people together,” she writes, “as well as one to drive us apart, and the role it plays in discussions about reproductive rights is no different. In my early twenties I was preparing to dedicate my life to Christ as a nun. However, the day before I was set to take my first vows, I realized that this was not my calling, and that I was there for the wrong reasons. I liked the life and work of the nuns – the commitment to serving the poor, caring for people, and living a simple, just life – but not the spiritual aspect. Yet, some of the very convictions that had attracted me to the order were the same ones that would eventually lead me to my life’s work conducting contraceptive and reproductive health-focused research, and spark my passion for advocating for sexual justice and reproductive rights…For me, my support of Planned Parenthood’s mission comes as part of my theology, not in spite of it.”

Rabbi Eugene Levy

Rabbi Eugene Levy, co-founder of the Arkansas Interfaith Alliance makes it clear that he supports the nation’s top abortion provider, “The goal for Jews is to bring God’s heavenly kingdom to earth. It’s all about making the world a better place. Being ‘pro-life,’ then, is about making life good between birth and death so the question is,what are we going to do to make life better…There are many religious voices out there who like Planned Parenthood and the work it does, and I am one of them. I’ve always liked this organization, and I want to be a voice for a religion that supports Planned Parenthood.

The number one provider of abortions goes on to quote the Rabbi that life begins at birth, “Consider that the term “life” means from the moment of birth to the moment of death, and be sure you do everything possible to make life as good as it can be for everyone in your community.”

Rev Debra McKnight PP

Rev. Debra McKnight, associate pastor of First United Methodist Church in Omaha whose picture made the cover of this heretical issue calls compassion godly but goes on to advocate for legalized abortion on demand, “God is a life-giving presence, which means we can and should care for each other with compassion. Faith isn’t just an hour on Sunday morning, but in your everyday life… I believe that being absolutely pro-birth isn’t always the most life-giving choice. The church needs to be there to support people, not moralize about those choices. We hope for a world where abortion doesn’t have to happen, but we acknowledge that an absolute ban is not necessarily the most life-affirming stance, either, because it doesn’t take into account the circumstances of the woman and her family.”

The Methodist minister goes on to imply that abortion is sacred, “People of faith can take courage from the prophets of ancient stories and speak up. They can let the world and our leaders know that reproductive rights are sacred and women’s health means healthy families, workplaces and communities,” Rev. McKnight states.

Just want to point out that not one verse of scripture or Biblical reference or reference from the Torah was used by Planned Parenthood’s religious supporters.
