Lawmaker: Planned Parenthood is ‘murder for hire’

UPDATE: Letter: Pittman revises Planned Parenthood claim
By: Letter to the editor | Independent Tribune
Published: August 09, 2012

Editor’s note: In a May email to a Planned Parenthood representative, N.C. Rep. Larry Pittman claimed that 75 percent of the organization’s income came through abortions. In an Aug. 7 email to the Independent Tribune, Pittman revised his estimate.

To the editor: The 75 percent figure may have been a bit high and outdated. I’m getting information now that it may be closer to 45-50 percent, because of all the government funding and contributions they receive. It is hard to pin it down, due to their misleading reporting. After all, we’re not just talking about what their “clients” pay them out of their own pockets. A lot of the funding they get from the government, donations, etc., allows them to do abortions on people who can’t pay for them all by themselves.

The important fact is that, without being the top perpetrators of abortion in the United States today, they wouldn’t even be in business in the first place to provide any other services. “Population control” and profiting off of abortion are the main reasons Planned Parenthood exists. Whatever else they do is secondary.

According to the News Observer, North Carolina State Representative Larry Pittman blasted Planned Parenthood as “a murderous organization … getting wealthy on murder for hire” in an email reply to a Planned Parenthood letter urging N.C. legislators not to cut funding to the organization.

The email to Pittman, who represents House District 82, originated with Planned Parenthood and was sent on May 24 to each member of the N.C. House of Representatives Health and Human Services Appropriations committee.

“Planned Parenthood is an essential community provider in North Carolina,” the email from Planned Parenthood said. “Each year, at nine health centers across the state, they provide over 18,000 tests for sexually transmitted infections, over 11,000 life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings, and contraceptive services to more than 61,000 women.”

Pittman’s emailed reply charges that Planned Parenthood “deals out nothing but deception, death, personal devastation, and moral degradation. Never will I agree to give that bloody, indecent, immoral organization one penny. I will not be satisfied until it is outlawed.”

Contacted for comment, Pittman did not back down from his attack on Planned Parenthood.

“My sources tell me that 75 percent of 1 / 8Planned Parenthood’s 3 / 8 income comes through abortions,” Pittman told the Independent Tribune in an email. “To say that they would try to reduce the incidence of abortion is like saying a baker would go around trying to get people to stop eating bread.”

“As for being ‘unprofessional,’ professionalism can be a good thing,” Pittman said. “However, it can be overemphasized, and often is, by those who are offended by someone who stands up and pulls the mask off of the evil around us. This is spiritual warfare. Professionalism is a secondary concern to opposing and exposing evil.”
The 2012 budget, written by the Republican-majority General Assembly, forbids Planned Parenthood and its affiliates from receiving any contracts or grants from the state health agency.

And then there are the aborted BABIES:
