A Texas abortion owner wants to use the abortion suction machines at her closed facility for “show and tell” to reduce what she calls “abortion stigma.”

Texas has been the site where several abortion clinics have closed because they could not comply with state law that requires abortion facilities comply with the minimum health and safety standards adopted by the State for ambulatory surgical centers, and that abortionists have admitting privileges in a local hospital near an abortion clinic.

The radical pro-abortion blog, RH Reality Check spoke to Amy Hagstrom Miller who operates several abortion clinics in Texas under the name Whole Woman’s Health.

Now that pro-life legislation is closing many abortion facilities in the state, Hagstrom Miller has come up with a new scheme to remain “relevant” and “shift abortion stigma,” a program she calls SHIFT.

Shift, according to Hagstrom Miller, is a group “working to strategically shift the stigma around abortion in our culture,” and “committed to fostering open and honest conversations, lifting up all communities, and advocating for reproductive freedom.

To accomplish this goal, the abortion owner has created a non profit she will operate from her now closed Austin facility called, ChoiceWorks, which she describes as “working to strategically shift the stigma around abortion in our culture.”

The idea is to use the closed death camp as a “kind of an Abortion University” where Hagstrom Miller will teach an “Abortion 101” workshop.

Maybe the clinic owner will use her Beaumont center in this “Abortion University” workshop of sorts as well.

A 2013, state inspectors found that Whole Woman’s Health Beamont clinic failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.

Hagstrom Miller told RH Reality Check that she always fantasize about what it would look like if abortion care were treated as, “legitimate in women’s health care, just like miscarriage management or delivery?”

    Some of our programs are inviting people to come into the clinic—this, where we’re talking, is one of those clinics. We have a safe space where we kind of re-enact a day in the life of a clinic for not just the media, but our allies. We’ll walk through, literally from the phone call all the way through the paperwork, ultrasound, and counseling, so people can see how regulations actually affect the service, experientially. But then we could also have this interaction where people can, in a safe place, say, “But what is that you’re seeing in the ultrasound? What happens in the ultrasound? Can I see the instruments?” And they’ll say things like, “Oh my goodness, there aren’t any sharp instruments,” or “Can I see the fetal tissue?” or whatever. A safe place where we can do education about what actually happens.”

Pro-lifers have been educating the public on what an abortion looks like for years.

ABORTION IS GOOD?

Good Women Have Abortions

The abortion chain operator told the pro-choice blog that she wants society to think of abortion as good.

Nobody’s talking about abortion as though it’s a good in our society, or as though good women would have an abortion. I had this banner outside Whole Woman’s Health for years that said, “Good women have abortions.” People flipped out,” Hagstrom Miller said.

Killing babies is good in our society?

Did we mention www.100abortionpictures.com?

How about www.safeandlegal.com where Life Dynamics lists the names of the women killed from legal abortion?

Or….www.childpredators.com which documents how pedophiles use abortion to cover child sexual abuse?

What about the many women who regret their abortions?

Hagstrom Miller said that her new abortion adventure is her way of “turning lemons into lemonade.”

I have, as it turns out, a bunch of suction machines I don’t know what to do with. So if they can become used for show and tell? Awesome,” she stated.

You cannot make this stuff up.

As Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics has said many times, the pro-choice mindset comes from mental illness.

Listen to him explain this on a recent Life Talk TV show.

END LIFE DYNAMICS:

Despite the fact that one of Amy Hagstrom Miller’s own abortion facilities has been cited for safety violations, Hagstroim Miller said this:

    “The bad provider thing is rough. How can we talk about that? Whenever I see the word “access,” I don’t want access to abortion, I want access to quality abortion. I host little debates within the field: Is any abortion a good abortion? I don’t think so. I want us to have those ethical debates.”

The Texas abortion chain owner does subscribe to the ideology that women who have abortions need to talk about them:

    “People say, “People just need to tell their abortion stories,” and I’m like, no they fucking don’t. I mean, I love when they do. But we can’t make shifting the movement that person’s burden. That’s not her fucking job. She doesn’t owe that to us. So I get super animated about this, “Oh we just need to have more patients tell their stories,” you know? No we don’t! We have providers that don’t talk about what they do.”

But she added that she wants men to talk about how abortion benefits them,”Because I want a frame where we can talk about how men benefit from abortion.”

She concluded by stating all the things she believed abortion providers were afriad to be asked about:

    “So that we don’t leave what my friend Charlotte Taft calls the “crumbs at the picnic.” We have a picnic and we don’t clean up and anti-choicers grab every little crumb. Abortion, money! Ooh, “late-term” abortion! Fetal pain! Oh, sex-selection! I could make a list of all the things that all of us are terrified of being asked about. That’s totally by design.”

Planned Parenthood wants to “make abortion normal”

Posted in Abortion Stigma, Cecile Richards Salary, Planned Parenthood 990, Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood six digit salary with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

The very thought of something even the abortion lobby trumps as “RARE” to be made normal is appalling.

But, when Planned Parenthood, which has been running away from the label of abortion business, tweets “make abortion normal“, one must take note.

Here is the message tweeted by the tax funded organization:

“Make abortion normal = End Stigma! http://ow.ly/OklpH #EndAbortionStigma

PP Make abortion normal

Planned Parenthood even wrote this on their website where they also praised their president, Cecile Richards for “coming out” about her own abortion, “If you think about it, abortion stigma—the fact that women feel judged for something that’s not uncommon—seems a little old-school, doesn’t it? Planned Parenthood and many other organizations, lobbyists, and individuals out there agree and they’ve chosen to take a stand by ending the silence.”

Ironically, despite their rhetoric Planned Parenthood has been trying to change their “imageaway from the largest abortion provider in the country.

Planned Parenthood In Clinic ABortion

An interesting turn of events given that Planned Parenthood has worked hard to hide their image of the abortion giant they are setting up abortion clinics and abortion referral centers nationwide like the Wal-mart of the abortion industry.

Of late, Planned Parenthood has spent an great deal of time marketing themselves as anything BUT an abortion center – yet- they hypocritically call for and end to “abortion stigma?”

Hmmm.

Why would that be if child killing in the womb for any reason and at any gestational age is to be made “normal“?

Because, for all of their fancy marketing of abortion as a “choice“, the public still finds abortion distasteful at best and out-right abhorrent at worst.

It may be true that many do not want all abortions made illegal, but, many also see abortion as a kind of a “necessary evil” and certainly not something to be made “normal.”

Pro-life people however would disagree, noting it for what it is, the wholesale slaughter of a human baby in the womb for pay.

And, the largest recipient of that murder for hire fee is Planned Parenthood themselves where directors and staff rake in six digit salaries for their alleged “care no matter what $$$.

Below are a few examples form the corporate 990, which does not include salaries from each of the abortion giant’s almost 800 centers:

The truth is that, “making abortion normal” is all Planned Parenthood is about and anyone who doubts this need only look at the numbers:

Actress aborts baby b/c she didn’t want to be attached to “this person” for rest of life

Posted in Abortion Stigma, Cecile Richards, Hollywood, Planned Parenthood and Hollywood, Pro-choice Logic with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2015 by saynsumthn

Jemima Kirke an artist and actor in New York, told the Center for Reproductive Rights that she wasn’t sure if she wanted to be attached to “this person” for the rest of her life.

This person” could be Jemima’s boyfriend or as I originally took it – the unborn child she proudly aborted in 2007 because “my life just was not conducive to raising a healthy – happy child,” she said.

So – she killed the “child” instead.

Jemima Kirke abortion

I just didn’t feel it was fair,” she said.

Fair to who? The child you butchered?

Kirke had her abortion at a Planned Parenthood because we all know- when it comes to money- the abortion giant will kill your child for any reason and at any stage you “choose.”

Maybe that is why Planned Parenthood’s prez, Cecile Richards thanked the Girls actress on twitter:

Jemima kirke cecile richards

But, the poor girl had to actually pay for her abortion out of pocket….”empty my checking account- what I had in there” anyone feel sympathy for her?

NOPE!

Apparently she didn’t have enough for anesthesia – and I guess Planned Parenthood just did not care because Kirke seemed a little upset that she couldn’t scrounge enough money to completely numb herself during the procedure.

But- alas – it is the pro-life movement who Kirke targets as the bad guy here.

Go figure !!

Kirke now has two born children and she says she hopes abortion remains legal for their sake.

GAG!

Planned Parenthood vid portrays women as emotionally weak regarding abortion

Posted in Abortion Stigma, Planned Parenthood spin, Planned Parenthood Videos, Pro-choice Hypocrisy, Pro-choice Spin with tags , , , , , , , , on March 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

A Planned Parenthood video on so-called “abortion stigma” portrays women as weak and incapable of criticism and of being unable to feel confident in their so-called liberating choice to have an abortion.

Abortion Stigma

According to the video, any feeling of guilt or remorse by women purchasing the child killing service is because of outside forces.

While at the same time, the abortion industry wants you to believe that the woman’s desire to have an abortion is all from her and not pressure from a family member or a counselor who takes pay to sell the procedure.

As I analyze Planned Parenthood’s “abortion-stigma” video, I conclude that they are painting women as weak.

She may feel uncomfortable about asking someone to accompany her to the clinic,” the video states, “or watch her kids out of fear of being judged.”

She may have to work extra hours, borrow money, or sell her belongings…” says Planned Parenthood.

Solution to this problem? Tax funded abortion of course.

You see, the “I never saw an abortion I could not profit from” organization wants abortion to be a private decision between a woman and her doctor, until, that is, it is time to cash out. Then, and only then, can the taxpayer have a say.

Abortion Stigma states law

Many states have additional laws that reinforce the idea that abortion is morally wrong and socially unacceptable,” the video continues.

“When a woman arrives at the health center for her appointment she might encounter anti-abortion protesters shouting at her…” they state.

And what might these “protesters” say?

Some may be warning them that women who go to Planned Parenthood sometimes die and end up at the morgue. Like Tonya Reaves died after Planned Parenthood left her bleeding for 5 hours before transferring her to the hospital, where she drew her last breath. Reaves’ “abortion stigma” is now permanent.

The video then claims that regulated state mandated information is incorrect a point I would strongly differ on, “And, once inside the clinic, she may have to go over incorrect state mandated information about abortion,” they state.

Really, Planned Parenthood?

Are women that unable to cope with their own private decisions – or- do they come to the profit making abortion clinic uncertain?

In which case, all those so-called laws you spoke about should actually assist her in the event she wants to change her mind because of her uncertainty.

It’s also important to consider what might happen to a woman after her abortion,” Planned Parenthood says.

Yep…like….a ride in the ambulance perhaps because of a serious botch job or complication?

Ambulance Feb 2013

But, what Planned Parenthood was referring to with that statement were those pesky free speech statements on TV, the media or billboards that women see that allegedly add to her feelings of uncertainty – because- as I stated- Planned Parenthood is painting women as weak and unable to stand confidently on their own decisions.

____________________________________________________

But, Planned Parenthood doesn’t end by just explaining the “abortion stigma” of women seeking abortions, allegedly, according to the abortion clinic chain, women are not the only weak ones here.

Abortion Stigma patient provider

Apparently, abortion providers or as Planned Parenthood paints it, “people who work in abortion care” also feel this so-called stigma.

I guess if an abortionist is BIG enough and TOUGH enough to suck an innocent baby from the womb shouldn’t they be able to handle so-called “abortion stigma?

No way- not according to Planned Parenthood which states:

They may feel unsupported by family or friends and separate from their neighbors and community. This type of relationship damage can impact health creating feelings of isolation and even workplace burnout.”

Oh NO!

We can’t allow abortion doctors to get burned out and QUIT can we? I speak sarcastically, of course.

abortion stigma providers protesters

They may have to enter their workplace everyday hearing that their work is unwelcome in their community. Abortion clinic staff may feel that other medical providers see their work as illegitimate or unimportant…

Uh…yeah !

Abortion staff can sometimes feel as though their colleagues who don’t work in abortion services don’t understand what they go through day-to-day and that colleagues may unintentionally add to their experiences stigma,” Planned Parenthood says.

Oh…please!

So, let’s recap.

If a woman or an abortion worker feels “abortion stigma” it is because of me or you or TV or the media- or the community- or the church- or billboards- or free speech – or – everyone else except them.

How ridiculous !

As I like to state, “Abortion stigma is between a woman and her abortion provider – ONLY!
