NARAL’s prez spoke of “values” and “human rights” to ThinkProgress about the Men For Choice campaign- while they promote the wholesale slaughter of unborn babies with abortion and fail to speak up when abortion docs slap or kill their patients.

The recent attacks on our freedoms affect women first and foremost, but are an affront to all people who hold human rights as a value. We want men on our team, not only at the elected level but at the grassroots level too. This is how we show solidarity and how we win.” ~ Ilyse Hogue, NARAL’s president.

TEXT:

The National Abortion Rights Action League is dragging out a campaign called Men for Choice as if this is some sort of revolutionary new concept. The reality is, and polls have consistently shown, that men have always been their strongest supporters. If fact, this is a reflection of why the early feminist leaders in this country were openly opposed to the legalization of abortion. They understood that legalized abortion has nothing to do with women’s equality. Women don’t need surgery to be equal to men. What abortion is, is a safety net for sexually predatory and sexually irresponsible males. It gives these guys a way to avoid any commitments to the women whose bodies they use or any responsibility for the children they father. Not only that, but the woman are the ones who take all the risks associated with the operation.

And not only did these early feminist leaders know this, men know it too. And men like those I just described, take advantage of it. That’s why, today, American society has devolved to the point where a male’s responsibility for an unplanned pregnancy he helped to create is often defined as a willingness to pay for half the abortion and provide transportation to the clinic.

Let’s also not forget what sometimes happens when a woman refuses to jump into this safety net. This Life Dynamics report documents about 100 cases in which women who refused their partners demands to have abortions, were then brutally murdered by those men. And our research made it crystal clear that the victims named here are just the tip of an enormous iceberg.

So if you are female, before you jump into bed with someone, it would be a good idea to find out his position on abortion. After all, you don’t want to be like the women listed here and find out the hard way that the kind of man who can be pro-choice about your baby could also be pro-choice about you.

The bottom line is, if you want to submit to an abortion, then the way the law is right now you can do so. But don’t be so blind, or so pathetically naïve, that you think abortions are done for the benefit of women. After all, if the people promoting this “Men for Choice” campaign can figure out whose bread is being buttered, so can you.

Abortion in 1966: Three Men Weigh in On Women’s Rights
Number 43
Thursday, July 12, 2012 – 04:30 PM

Abortion was the topic of this 1966 broadcast of Main Currents, hosted by Lee Graham. Three panelists (all men) used the recent introduction of a bill that would “liberalize” existing abortion restrictions as a springboard for a wide-ranging discussion of the practice both in the United States and abroad, and for exploring the historical basis for such restrictions and what the future may hold.

There were no abortion opponents present. Indeed, the only opposition mentioned was the Roman Catholic Church, and even that institution, one of the participants assures, is “approaching a state of fluidity greater than what we’ve seen in previous years.” This sober, for the most part reasoned, conversation is striking in its contrast to the fanatic rhetoric to come.

The three panelists were Alfred Julien, a trial lawyer conversant with the abortion law and how the proposed bill (introduced by State Senator Percy Sutton) would change access to abortions; Dr. Robert Hall, an obstetrician; and Lawrence Lader, a journalist who would become well known as a crusader for women’s reproductive rights. Currently, Hall explains, a legal abortion can only be performed to preserve the life, but not the health, of the mother. This crucial distinction, he argues, “prevents us from practicing good medicine.” Julien, the lawyer, calls the present law “harsh and restrictive.” Lader, instead of focusing narrowly on the legal or medical aspects of the debate, sees abortion as a civil rights issue. He quotes Margaret Sanger, who said, “No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.”

Lader was a major voice in the abortion debate for four decades, becoming a lightning rod for its critics as well as a beacon for its proponents. He wrote influential books and articles on the subject, organized ministers to refer women wanting abortions to doctors as well as referring 2,000 himself, helped found what was long known as the National Abortion Rights Action League and helped win New York State’s repeal of abortion restrictions in 1970.

In Japan for ex, an easy abortion is their method of keeping the birthrate down…

The law is called the Eugenic Protection Act, the law was not passed as a birth control act.

10:48

the fact that in some places they have controlled populations is in fact inconsequential

ILLEGAL ABORTIONS: 11:40

Dr. Hall asked about 1 million illegal ab’s, moderator asks, how is that figure arrived at?

Kinsey Research Inst 11:40- which in surveying thousands of women found …explains illegal abortion reporting…we don’t know exactly how many illegal legal abortions are done of course we never will know for the reasons you say..8 or 10,000 a year…

“Difficult to know because the Kinsey Group is a little biased” – about 100 to one illegality

People who need abortions most Negroes, Puerto Ricans

15:00Huge disparity between … particularly in NY City,people who need abortions most, the percentage of Puerto Ricans , Negros other minority groups who secure hospital abortions very minor…. I abject to the word Illegal abortion, we do not know what illegal abortion is …

Socialists from Occupy DC, and eugenics founded Planned Parenthood protest Romney Fundraiser

Posted in Planned Parenthood and Occupy Wall Street, Planned Parenthood rich off taxpayers with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2011 by saynsumthn

According to Live Leak: On the evening of December 14, GOP Presidential candidate and former one-term Massachusetts governor Mitt Romeny had a fundraiser, plates from $100 to $10,000. The event was held at the Lincoln restaurant, just three blocks from Occupy DC’s campsite at McPherson Square.

Both Occupy DC and Planned Parenthood showed up to protest, with Planned Parenthood displaying “women are watching” signs. One sign even said “don’t take away my birth control! The two groups worked well together, and attendees/donors to Mitt Romney had to run the usual gauntlet line of protesters.

There was an unusually heavy police presence compared to the usual Occupy DC protests.

The protesters criticized the newest position of Mitt Romney as pro-life and then claims he likes to “blow-up children” – quite a contradiction.

What Occupiers are failing to object to by teaming up with Planned Parenthood is the way Planned Parenthood also milks the tax payer, and sucks millions out of the treasury – I guess this shows their true colors: they are not against the 1% ( Rich people like Planned Parenthood Prez Cecile Richards) after all !

Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and $363.2 MILLION Dollars on Government Grants ( Tax Dollars) in 2009- that is ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY of taxpayer money !!!
Planned Parenthood then took those hard earned dollars away from poor and middle class hard working people and and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. ( View 2008 990 here )

VICE PRESIDENT OF DEVELOPMENT KIM MEREDITH received $220,427 from Planned Parenthood $24,492 from related organizations and $24,076 in estimated compensations. Before joining PPFA in 2006, Meredith spent nearly nine years as the chief operating officer at the now defunct and now disaffiliated Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, a Planned Parenthood clinic which squandered tax dollars and will close and never repay their debtors .

NATIONAL POLITIC AND FIELD DIR, ELLEN GOLOMBEK received $203,843 from Planned Parenthood $10,729 from related organizations and $15,288 in estimated compensations, she has since left Planned Parenthood to work in the Colorado Governor’s Administration.

VP Development Anne Matsui made $86,775

VP Finance Yvonne Van Tassel made $86,775

These figures do not account for each Planned Parenthood director – there are over 800 locations, making six digits in many cases as welll….

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Web site shows that it performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. Why should the taxpayer be forced to fund abortion?

Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?

But, Planned Parenthood’s profits are politicians gains. Just look at this analysis from Open Secrets which monitors 501C3 organizations and how they distribute and collect their funding:

The organization’s political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats -- during the 2010 election cycle. The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.

Planned Parenthood also recorded $905,796 in independent expenditures during the 2010 cycle – money spent in support of, or in opposition to, federal political candidates, largely through advertisements. The top beneficiaries of this money were Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

In 2010 alone, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period.

So, not only does taxpayer money make Planned Parenthood officials RICH FAT CATS, they also expand the coffers of the politicians who support them- see how the cycle works?
Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?

“Reproductive Rights” to once again trump “Parental Rights”?

Vaccine bill overrides parents on child health, By Rebecca Hagelin

The Washington Times

Culture Challenge of the Week: Government and Sex-pushers Versus Parents

Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown has a ticking time bomb on his desk: He must sign a recently passed bill by Sunday for it to become law. His signature, however, would set an explosive precedent: The bill would allow children as young as 12 years old to give valid consent – without their parent’s knowledge or permission – to receive vaccines that aim to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

The groups pushing the governor to sign the bill include the usual “reproductive rights” suspects: the ACLU, NARAL Pro-Choice California and Planned Parenthood, to name a few. Their justification for cutting parents out of the decision-making process is the usual tripe: When it comes to sex, parents cannot be trusted to act in their children’s best interests.

The bill meets an urgent need, says its sponsor, Assemblymember Toni Atkins (a lesbian, community organizer and longtime advocate for LGBT special privileges). She argues that letting individual parents decide whether their child should receive, for example, the HPV vaccine amounts to “playing Russian roulette with kids’ lives.” Why? Because random clinic workers, school nurses or pharmaceutical representatives surely stand in a better position than the child’s parents to judge whether – for that particular child – the benefits of receiving the vaccine outweigh the risks.

Excuse me? Read rest here

Emily Tarsell’s 21 year old daughter suddenly died from unknown causes. After a personal crusade, the devastated mother found the death could be traced to a common vaccination, Gardasil.

Latin American Economic Summit Promotes Abortion, Condemns “Lesbophobia”
Friday Fax By Susan Yoshihara, Ph.D. Amanda Pawloski

NEW YORK, July 29 (C-FAM) A recent gathering of Latin America’s top economic commission issued a document praising secularism, condemning “lesbophobia,” calling for redistributive social systems, and liberally promoting sexual and reproductive rights.

Delegates from more than 30 Latin American and Caribbean countries attended the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean’s (ECLAC) Eleventh Session of the Regional Conference on Women in Brazil. The purpose of the conference was to address gender equality and women’s empowerment in economic terms. The delegates were mainly “gender” advisors, representing the government of member states.

The non-binding outcome document, which its proponents call “The Brasilia Consensus,” recommends that “at the High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals, which will be held in September 2010, particular attention should be paid to target 5B concerning universal access to reproductive health.”

The document then goes on to recommend that states review laws that punish or “denounce” women who have undergone abortions. The subject of “denunciation” has become a legal tool used by abortion proponents to argue that abortion laws amount to “cruel and inhuman” treatment of women. One UN delegate told the Friday Fax that his country is already considering reviewing its strict abortion law based upon pressure from UN committees on the subject of “denunciation.”

The ECLAC document also calls on states to incorporate gender “self-identification” in census taking, and derides people who oppose homosexuality. Specifically, it refers to “the prevalence and persistence of violence against women, racism, sexism, impunity and lesbophobia, parity in all areas of decision-making and access to high-quality universal public services in the areas of public awareness, education and health-care, including sexual and reproductive health care.” The document also recommends that states establish national accounts to reimburse women for work done in the home.

In her keynote address at the ECLAC meeting, Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile, insisted that the state cannot be neutral, and called for majority-backed “political will” to enforce the consensus. Only four weeks prior to the ECLAC meeting, Bachelet was appointed by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to join a special advocacy group to rouse support of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Specifically, Bachelet was put in charge of overseeing international achievement of MDG 3 on gender equality.



One UN delegate told the Friday Fax that the document is already informing the negotiations on the MDG Review document, now under heated debate at the UN. That document is set to be adopted at a high level UN meeting in September.

The pro-life group, Movimento Defensa de la Vida criticized the “Brasilia Consensus” as drastically out of step with the laws, policies, and culture of the vast majority of ECLAC member states. The Buenos Aires Herald recently reported a survey showing that more 82 percent of Nicaraguans, 73 percent of Brazilians, 71 percent of Mexicans, and 66 percent of Chileans oppose legalizing abortion in almost all its forms.

Nephew of American Eugenics Society former Vice President leads National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

Posted in Eugenics, Guttmacher, NIH, Planned Parenthood with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 27, 2010 by saynsumthn

Alan E. Guttmacher, nephew to Alan F. Guttmacher a former vice president of the American Eugenics Society, assumed the duties of NICHD Acting Director on December 1, 2009. Now a detailed interview with Alan Guttmacher’s nephew, named after his Uncle, Alan Guttmacher reveals that he has been placed in charge of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Dr. Alan Guttmacher (Jr.), a Harvard-trained geneticist and pediatrician, is the new acting director of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the federal agency that finances research into child and maternal health. Dr. Guttmacher, 60, previously worked with Francis Collins on the Human Genome Project and then as the deputy director of the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health.

Asked this by the New York Times:

Q. YOUR UNCLE WAS THE PRESIDENT OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND A TOWERING FIGURE IN THE REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS MOVEMENT. HAS THERE BEEN ANY CRITICISM OF APPOINTING ANYONE NAMED ALAN GUTTMACHER TO THIS POST?
Guttmacher (Jr.) replies, ” I have not been aware of any. The name does stand for something. Planned Parenthood was more of a social movement until my uncle said, “If we’re making all these decisions, we need to make sure that it is backed up by good scientific information.” So he started the think tank that became known as the Guttmacher Institute. One finds that people know the name primarily because of that. But people on both sides of the abortion debate tend to use their data as the reliable data. So, to some degree, my appointment has been less controversial than some might think.”

Guttmacher also bragged that in 2009, N.I.C.H.D.’s funding for research on reproductive health totaled more than $254 million.

Guttmacher also uses a term used many times in Eugenics Science, the term “Family Pedigree” – Guttmacher, “When I was fixing up my office, I found these three grocery bags from a previous occupant filled with documents and pedigrees for a Vermont family with HHT. I’d saved them. So my visitor looked over these pedigrees and asked, “Would you be willing to find these people, get their medical histories, examine them, get some blood for DNA and tell us which ones have the disease.” So that’s what we did.”

Guttmacher’s profile on the NIH website states that Guttmacher, also oversees the NIH’s involvement in the U.S. Surgeon General’s Family History Initiative, an effort to encourage all Americans to learn about and use their families’ health histories to promote personal health and prevent disease. ( Hmmm)

Alan E. Guttmacher is a former board member of the Guttmacher Institute the research arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider and according to Guttmacher Institute’s own stats, abortion kills almost 5x’s as many black babies as white ones. Planned Parenthood clinics are set up strategically in black neighborhoods, causing some to claim that it is a deliberate attempt to limit black populations.

A stated goal of The Guttmacher Institute is legal abortion:

The Guttmacher Institute envisions a world in which all women and men have the ability to exercise their rights and responsibilities regarding sexual behavior, reproduction and family formation freely and with dignity. In this world, women and men in every country are able to avoid unwanted pregnancies, prevent and procure treatment for sexually transmitted infections, obtain safe abortions, achieve healthy pregnancies and births, and have satisfying sexual relationships.

Alan E. Guttmacher’s uncle, Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher was the Vice President of the American Eugenics Society. Guttmacher was also a former president and board member of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood’s founder , Margaret Sanger was also a member of the American Eugenics Society and she admittedly gave speeches to the Klan regarding her so-called “important eugenic work”.

From it’s beginning, Guttmacher and Planned Parenthood has been muddied up in eugenics and now abortion has been the tool used to drastically limit the Black and Latino populations.

For more on this troublesome trend watch the film: Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America (Preview below)

Alan Guttmacher founded the Gutmacher Institute, which is the research arm of Planned Parenthood. In 1966- Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher, President of the Planned Parenthood Federation told a symposium at the University of California Medical Center that a sensitive area in the field of birth control was, “the belief that the white middle class was coercing their own poor and people with black and yellow skins to reduce family size because the middle-class whites are frightened of being outnumbered.” … “ The only way the mounting feeling that birth control is a tool of racism can be handled, is to involve knowledgeable leaders from the minority groups who understand and are favorable to the philosophy of birth control. They, in turn, must translate their appreciation of the contribution which birth control can make toward family stability to their own people.” (SOURCE: New York Times: Doctor blames his profession for delays on Family Planning: 1/16/1966)

Blacks rejected Guttmacher and Planned Parenthood’s eugenic birth control push and saw it as Genocide in their community. In another effort to bring Black on board the Eugenic Plan, a A January 28,1966 internal memo from Alan Guttmacher and Fred Jaffe, outlines the plan for winning over the Black Community. The memo begins by calling the new plan, a “Community Relations Program.” The “program” is to, “form a liaison between Planned Parenthood and minority organizations.” The plan, according to Planned Parenthood, will emphasize that “all people have the opportunity to make their own choices,” rather than, as the memo states, “exhortation telling them how many children they should have.” One way to get the message is out is to “ get assistance from black organizations like The Urban League and the AME church,” and according to the memo they need to employ, “ more Negro staff members on PP-WP [Planned Parenthood-World Population] and Affiliate’s staff, as well as recruit more Negro members for the National Board- at least 5.” Along with this Guttmacher suggests that they initiate cooperation with the National Medical Association [NMA] , a Black medical association, and encourage them to establish a committee on reproduction and family planning. Guttmacher also hoped to “secure at least three Negro physicians for membership on the PP-WP Medical Committee, and he planned to invite NMA leaders to address their convention. Also on the radar was a comprehensive plan to address the Black media by, “specially developed news and feature articles for Negro newspapers.” Guttmacher ends by stating that the above suggestions are “long overdue” but stresses, “we do not need to panic. In fact, if we panic and continue to publicize the “problem”, we may well exacerbate it ( SOURCE: Memo dated: January 28,1966 from Alan Guttmacher and Fred Jaffe located in the Planned Parenthood Federation Papers, Black Attitudes from 1962, copied from the Sophie Smith Collection, Sophie Smith College , Box 107/Folder 11:)

A Planned Parenthood memo dated: January 10,1966, reads, “Baker told us that Dr. Guttmacher is correct in feeling that civil rights leaders are beginning to take a hostile position toward population planning on the ground that it is an attempt to halt the growth of the Negro population.” … Baker chastised a speech that Guttmacher made where he admitted some on the Planned Parenthood Board may be there solely for a racist agenda, Dupont’s Public Relations Representative, Mr. Glen Perry writes, [ Baker] was especially critical of Dr. Guttmacher’s admission that there might be some members of Planned Parenthood who had the political objective attributed to the organization by civil rights leaders. Such an admission could easily be taken out of context, and used to the detriment of the organization.”
( SOURCE: January 11,1966, letter from L. Du. P. Copeland to Alan Guttmacher and January 10,1966 letter from Mr. Glen Perry to Lammont Du. P. Copeland Planned Parenthood Federation Papers, Black Attitudes from 1962, copied from the Sophie Smith Collection, Sophie Smith College , Box 107/Folder 11)

But, in 1970, Alan Guttmacher made this stunning statement, “ My own feeling is that we’ve got to pull out all the stops and involve the United Nations…If you’re going to curb population, it’s extremely important not to have it done by the dammed Yankees, but by the UN. Because the thing is, then it’s not considered genocide. If the United States goes to the Black man or the yellow man and says slow down your reproduction rate, we’re immediately suspected of having ulterior motives to keep the white man dominant in the world. If you can send in a colorful UN force, you’ve got much better leverage.
