7 facts the average American doesn’t know about legalized abortion

As we enter another year of legalized abortion on demand, many Americans are unaware of many facts regarding the history of abortion in the United States. To correct some of these misnomers, we have listed seven facts that the average American does not know about legal abortion.

Keep abortion legal

1. Abortion was legal prior to 1973 in certain states

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion. The bill was introduced by then Representative Richard D. Lamm. In 1968, Georgia legalized abortion. Previously, in 1966, Mississippi had legalized the procedure for cases of rape. Then during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York in 1970, the issue of unsafe abortions swayed one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in that state. Which brings me to the next fact.

2. Few women died from abortion the year prior to it’s legalization:

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

Despite the repeated lie that thousands or millions of women died from illegal abortion, there was then as now no law requiring the deaths of women from abortion to be reported. Stats from the Center for Disease Control show that, the year prior to Roe (1972) 66 women were reportedly killed from abortion. Out of those 39 were illegal, 24 were from legal abortion and 2 were unknown. However, in the year abortion was legalized (1973), the CDC documents that more women died from legal abortion than from illegal abortions.

3. Roe in the Supreme Court case never had an abortion:

Norma McCorvey ABC News Screen

The 1973 abortion case was brought to the Supreme Court on the basis that Norma McCorvey, the Roe in the case was raped and needed an abortion. The fact is that she was never raped and never wanted an abortion. In fact, Norma is also now pro-life and is seeking to overturn the infamous decision.

4. The language for Roe was written years before the case was decided

In 1962 the American Law Institute (ALI), comprised of judges, lawyers, and law professors who suggest recommendations for revisions to state laws proposed liberal abortion language as part of the “model penal code.” As a result, between the years 1962 and 1973, nineteen states reformed their abortion laws and enacted all or part of the institute’s reform model. Hawaii, Alaska, New York, and Washington removed all limitations for performing an abortion. Portions of the language read very close to what the Justices eventually enacted and included the “exceptions” language that opened the door for abortion on demand:

“[a] licensed physician is justified in terminating a pregnancy if he believes there is a substantial risk
(1) that continuation of the pregnancy would gravely impair the physical and mental health of the mother or
(2) that the child would be born with grave physical or mental defect, or
(3) that the pregnancy resulted from rape, incest, or other felonious intercourse.”

5. Roe V. Wade allowed for unrestricted abortions up to viability (24 weeks) with states deciding thereafter (viability measures have now drastically improved)

According to Paul Pauker who summarized Roe for Live Action previously, in Roe the Supreme Court adopted a trimester framework for state regulation of abortion. The Court held: in the first trimester of pregnancy, states may not regulate abortion; in the second trimester, states may regulate abortion only in ways related to protecting the mother’s health; and in the third trimester, states may “regulate, and even proscribe, abortion except where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother.”

6. Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe, opened the door for abortion on demand by allowing the “health of the mother” exception” to be defined however the doctor chose.

Pauker states that the language that seemed to allow a third trimester ban on abortion was deceptive, because in Doe, the Court gave “health” such a broad definition that states have been prevented from successfully imposing bans on abortion, including late-term abortions.

Testimony from Sandra Cano the Former Doe of Doe v. Bolton, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 23, 2005 showed that, like the Roe case, she never wanted an abortion:

“The Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decision bears my name. I am Sandra Cano, the former ”Doe” of Doe v. Bolton. Doe v. Bolton is the companion case to Roe v. Wade. Using my name and life, Doe v. Bolton falsely created the health exception that led to abortion on demand and partial birth abortion. How it got there is still pretty much a mystery to me. I only sought legal assistance to get a divorce from my husband and to get my children from foster care. I was very vulnerable: poor and pregnant with my fourth child, but abortion never crossed my mind. Although it apparently was utmost in the mind of the attorney from whom I sought help.

7. Today, based on many lies, tragically abortions are legal in all stages of pregnancy

Late term abortion Daily Signal 2015

The U.S. is one of only seven developed countries in which late-term abortions after 20 weeks (five months) are allowed, according to a 2015 report from the Charlotte Lozier Institute. The above graphic published by the Daily Signal reveals just how many states allow abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

Abortion training: avoid saying “baby” use “fetus” or “pregnancy” instead

Posted in Abortion Counseling, Abortion Training, Planned Parenthood Counseling with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2016 by saynsumthn

A training manual on abortion tells doctors and clinicians to avoid using the word “baby” and suggests substituting “fetus” or “pregnancy instead.

Early Abortion Workbook

The Early Abortion Training Workbook published by Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) which is staffed by former Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation (NAF) employees, describes their training this way:

    “ANSIRH’s Early Abortion Training Workbook was developed for use in a clinical setting where an experienced trainer or provider is available to lead a discussion of its didactic context and exercises. It is intended to help clinicians learn to identify key elements of informed consent counseling, recognize major psychosocial issues of importance for women who seek abortions, understand the basic steps involved with first-trimester vacuum aspiration abortions and early medical abortion service provision, and identify common complications related to first-trimester abortion care.”

Pro-lifers often point out that abortion is a money-making industry selling abortions to vulnerable women in their most difficult time of need. It is true that abortion providers will claim that they only do abortions on women who want them, but it is also true that they have developed clever marketing skills that not only bring the girls in for the abortions, but facilitate the “closure of the sale” as well. This is illustrated well in the ANSIRH training manual below which instructs abortion providers how to respond to an ambivalent patient:

Approrpiate to feder

“In deciding how to proceed,” the training manual states, “it is appropriate to trust your own instincts. Some patients, who may be having difficulty accepting responsibility for their decision, recant in an effort to make the provider or agency “responsible.” In such a case, the provider must ask for a clear statement of the patient’s intent before proceeding. For example:

“I’m not sure if you are ready to go on with the procedure tofay.If you aren’t sure, we can postpone until you are more sure.Do you need some more time?”

Then, the all-knowing abortion provider is very much aware that the woman, who is agonizing over her decision will opt to go through the abortion. In fact, the training manual tells providers, “For many women, this last moment is what they need; when faced with the possibility of NOT going forward, the other option is less appealing and they know they want to proceed,” they write.

In this training manual, ANSIRH also instructs their abortion providers to be careful what words they use … or… for that matter don’t use.

Words to avoid when a woman seeks an abortion: BABY.

The manual suggests that it would be best for abortionists to use the term: FETUS or PREGNANCY:

ABortion Training fetus baby

However, if the abortion bound patient decides to use the word “baby” the manual suggests that it is most likely because the pregnant woman may be “feeling guilt or regret.” And, if the abortion patient wants to know what happened to their “baby” the manual tells those they train to respond like this, “I examine the pregnancy tissue to make sure that you are no longer pregnant.”

ABortion Training fetus baby 2

Then, if the patient asks if the abortion will “hurt the baby” trainees are advised to say, “At this point in the pregnancy, the nervous system is still in a very early stage of development. Most brain cells are not developed and there is no pain.”

It would appear that this kind of manipulative and inaccurate training is working. The use of the term “pregnancy” in place of the rightful term “baby” when describing or counseling for an abortion can be seen across a wide spectrum of abortion businesses.

And in a brochure published by the National Abortion Federation, the term “baby” is substituted for “pregnancy” as it “attached to the uterus.”

    “A medical abortion uses two medicines to end a pregnancy. The first one (either mifepristone or methotrexate) weakens the attachment of the pregnancy to the uterus.”

A pregnancy can attach to the uterus?

The Feminist Women’s Health Center abortion clinic chain tells women their D+C abortions are used to “remove the tiny pregnancy.”

    “If you are at least 6 weeks by ultrasound, you can choose to have a surgical abortion, in which the cervix is dilated and suction aspiration is used to remove the tiny pregnancy.”

The Philadelphia Women’s Center abortion clinic refers to the “baby” in a second trimester abortion as the removal of a “pregnancy” as well:

    When the dilation of your cervix is complete you will be taken to the operating room, and a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) will administer IV sedation. The surgery will begin when the physician inserts a speculum into your vagina in order to view your cervix. If necessary, the physician will then dilate (open) your cervix more by inserting thin, metal rods, one by one, into the opening of the cervix. These rods, also called dilators, gradually increase in width. The physician will then use surgical instruments and vacuum aspiration (suction) to remove your pregnancy. The surgery usually takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes. After your surgery, you will be monitored in our recovery room until you are medically cleared to go home, usually about 45 minutes.

The Houston Women’s abortion clinic also fails to use the term “baby” when it tells women they “remove the pregnancy from the uterus”

    “Most commonly known as vacuum aspiration, is performed after we give you oral (vicodin and valium) and IV medication (valium and stadol). A very small plastic tube about 1/10 of an inch is used to remove the pregnancy from the uterus with gentle vacuum. The way Dr.Rosenfeld performs a vacuum aspiration usually takes less than one minute with very little to no pain.”

Planned Parenthood used the term “remove the pregnancy” rather than “baby” in a pamphlet which describes an early surgical abortion:

In CLinic ABortions

    “When your cervix is stretched open enough, the contents of your uterus (womb) are taken out with suction. Suction is used by putting a small plastic tube into your uterus and connecting it to a hand-held or electric suction machine. Surgical tools may be put into the uterus through the opening in the cervix. The way it is done will depend on how long you’ve been pregnant. You may feel cramping during and after the abortion as your uterus gets smaller. Your doctor may also use a curette (a thin surgical tool) to remove the pregnancy. What has been removed will be looked at to help make sure the abortion is finished.”

An example of this kind of spin was described by a Planned Parenthood employee who claims she aborted “the Pregnancy” at Planned Parenthood. In a video message, Shawanna says Planned Parenthood gave her three options:

    I told them my situation – they gave me three options: Keeping the pregnancy, have an abortion or adoption. I chose abortion. It was the best option for me at the time…it was the best decision.”

Shawanna used by PP

Shawanna, who is promoted as a patient, even though she works for Planned Parenthood, claims that after she aborted “The Pregnancy” her life became better because she got to finish going to school and became a certified nurses assistant who went on to work for the abortion giant. On the Planned Parenthood promotional video, Shawanna adds that she got pregnant again and was really happy the second time around and this time she kept “The Pregnancy.” She emphasizes that her abortion was good and states that she could not have imagined what her life would have been like if she “kept the pregnancy back then.”

Analysis: As government funding increases, so do Planned Parenthood’s abortions

An analysis of annual reports published by Planned Parenthood for the past 15 years has revealed that as government funding for the organization increased, Planned Parenthood’s share of the country’s abortions also increased. Since 2000, Planned Parenthood has performed over four million abortions and received almost $5 billion in federal tax dollars.

Former Planned Parenthood prez responds to 1973 legalized abortion ruling in vintage footage

Posted in Abortion History, Guttmacher with tags , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2016 by saynsumthn

A news report which aired just following the infamous 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion on demand shows us that from its beginning, Planned Parenthood saw abortion as positive for women despite the harm it does to their bodies and the fact that it takes the life of the preborn baby in the womb.

Guttmacher president Planned Parenthood Roe v Wade legal abortion

Alan F. Guttmacher, MD, served as Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) president from 1962–1974. Journalist George Herman’s CBS News Report (below) which was unearthed by Issues for Life, shows Alan Guttmacher, as head of Planned Parenthood, responding to the ruling:

“I think that to raise the dignity of woman and give her freedom of choice in this area is an extraordinary event. I think that Jan 22, 1973 will be a historic day.”

Liberating is an interesting term to use given the fact that the one time leader of Planned Parenthood who was also a Vice President for the American Eugenics Society, said this just years earlier at a 1967 forum at Harvard Law School:

    “… I would abort mothers already carrying three or more children…I would abort women who desire abortion who are drug addicts or severe alcoholics…I would abort women with sub-normal mentality incapable of providing satisfactory parental care…”(Source; “Abortion: The Issues”, Dr. Alan Guttmacher – President, Planned Parenthood, December 4, 1967, Harvard Law School Forum)

Speaking at the Harvard Law School Forum, a 1967 article in the Harvard Crimson quoted Alan Guttmacher as stating that a larger percentage of abortions performed prior to it’s legalization were from “reputable physicians” something that was downplayed as advocates pushed legal abortion as safer than illegal abortion.

“Seventy per cent of the illegal abortions in the country are performed by reputable physicians, each thinking himself a knight in white armor.”

At the same event, Guttmacher asked for liberalization of present abortion laws, but not for outright repeal, stating that, “To allow abortion on demand would relegate man to the status of the bull.” Guttmacher later said that, “abortion should be a back-up procedure for failed or failure-to-use effective contraception. It must never be the primary method of birth control.” (Source: AMA Congress on Environmental Health, May 4-5, 1970 speech by Alan F. Guttmacher, Page 63.)

Interestingly, the Planned Parenthood president made this statement in 1970, “We look forward to the time when our clinics can be closed, when the government can fund enough money to serve the poor and research new birth control methods.”

In a sobering warning, George Herman ended the CBS report with these words, “If the experience of New York State is any guide, America will eventually have one abortion for every two births.

As we enter another year of legalized abortion, we look forward to the day we will see the closure of Planned Parenthood and all abortion clinics as we work for the protection of the preborn child in the womb.

Abortion Stats, 2014

Posted in Abortion Numbers, Planned Parenthood abortion numbers, Planned Parenthood abortion stats, Planned Parenthood annual report with tags , , , , on January 1, 2016 by saynsumthn

In 2014, Planned Parenthood received $553.7 million in federal tax dollars. In their 2014-2015 annual report, Planned Parenthood records performing 323,999 abortions their last fiscal year. This number is slightly lower than they reported a year prior. In that 2013-2014 annual report the number of abortions Planned Parenthood reported performing was 327,653 a decrease of 3,654 abortions.

Planned Parenthood 2014 to 2015 annual report tax payer abortion

While Planned Parenthood claims their numbers represent all abortions they performed, the report indicates that they also gave out 931,589 “emergency contraception kits.” Emergency contraception is thought by many to be abortive because they often prevent the embryo from attaching to the lining of the uterus after conception.

Although Planned Parenthood reports performing 323,999 abortions, they recorded referring only 2,024 women for adoption referrals to “other agencies.” This means that Planned Parenthood referred only one adoption for every 160 abortions they reported performing. In addition, that number also indicates that adoption referrals were only a tiny fraction of a percentage (.000021405) of their overall “services.”

Tax dollars to abortion biz Planned Parenthood increase by 5%

Posted in Abortion Numbers, Planned Parenthood 990, Planned Parenthood abortion numbers, Planned Parenthood adoption referral with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 1, 2016 by saynsumthn

The latest Planned Parenthood annual report has been released and shows that while abortions performed by Planned Parenthood only fell by 1%, government funding increased 5% to over $151 million dollars a day in federal tax monies to Planned Parenthood annually. In addition, the report indicates that Planned Parenthood’s abortions outnumber adoption referrals by 160 to 1.

In the 2014-2015 annual report, Planned Parenthood records performing 323,999 abortions their last fiscal year. This number is slightly lower than they reported a year prior. In that 2013-2014 annual report the number of abortions Planned Parenthood reported performing was 327,653 a decrease of 3,654 abortions.

Planned Parenthood 2014 to 2015 annual report tax payer abortion

While Planned Parenthood claims their numbers represent all abortions they performed, the report indicates that they also gave out 931,589 “emergency contraception kits.” Emergency contraception is thought by many to be abortive because they often prevent the embryo from attaching to the lining of the uterus after conception.

Although Planned Parenthood reports performing 323,999 abortions, they recorded referring only 2,024 women for adoption referrals to “other agencies.” This means that Planned Parenthood referred only one adoption for every 160 abortions they reported performing. In addition, that number also indicates that adoption referrals were only a tiny fraction of a percentage (.000021405) of their overall “services.”

Another shocking fact released in the report was that while Planned Parenthood’s total assets are $1,789.5 million and revenue totaled $1291.1 million, the U.S. tax payer was forced to give Planned Parenthood $553.7 million in federal tax dollars an increase of 5% from the previous year’s grant of $528.4. This amount makes the U.S. government the largest single contributor to the abortion clinic chain among the categories they listed, totally 43% of their overall revenue. In addition, the amount given to Planned Parenthood from the taxpayer breaks down to over $151 million TAX dollars a DAY annually.

Planned Parenthood defends abortion 2014 2015 annual report

As usual, the report listed several things the largest chain of abortion clinics boasted about including the following:

  • This fall, a Planned Parenthood health center delivered birth control via float plane to a patient in a remote Alaskan village.
  • Our advocacy efforts never slow down. We are constantly working hard to deepen our partnerships with allies, lobby in state legislatures, and fight in the courts when access to safe and legal abortion is threatened.
  • No parent in the world wants their daughter to have fewer rights than they did — so it’s up to us to make sure every girl growing up today will be able to control her body, her life, and her opportunities. Because of you, we are protecting her future.
  • Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) supports 59 independently incorporated affiliates that operate 661 health centers across the U.S., which have seen 2.5 million patients this year.
  • We protected and expanded access to abortion.
  • We advocated for Congress to reject a ban on abortion at 20 weeks because while women should not have to justify their personal medical decisions…

What was missing in Planned Parenthood’s report this year, as in past years, was any mention of the numbers of mammograms that Planned Parenthood performed. This is because, as Live Action has detailed before, despite their slick and deceptive marketing, Planned Parenthood does NOT perform mammograms.

Also missing was any mention of their gruesome baby harvesting operation. Under cover videos released earlier this year from the Center for Medical Progress showed high ranking Planned Parenthood staffers haggling over the price of the body parts of the babies they aborted. The videos horrified many Americans who called for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood. But, Congress has failed to pull the millions of dollars they send to Planned Parenthood, despite the fact that the majority of Americans favor taking funding away from Planned Parenthood and redirecting it to comprehensive health care clinics… which actually outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics by a margin of 20 to 1.

Hospital halts training program with late term abortion clinic which provides “fetal tissue”

Univ NM

A New Mexico University has halted a training program using doctors from a late term abortion clinic which provides the University with fetal tissue for research. The Albuquerque Journal newspaper has reported that the University of New Mexico (UNM), which is a publicly-funded institution, has cut ties with Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), a late-term abortion facility owned by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd and has been the subject if a previous undercover sting conducted by Live Action. The abortionist is one of a handful of doctors in the country that performs abortions in the third trimester. He claims to be a former Baptist minister and admits that he knows he “is killing.” Southwestern Women’s has a location in Dallas and one in Albuquerque.

Pro-lifers Tara and Bud Shaver who founded the pro-life group, ProtestABQ, have diligently exposed the late term clinic for years. In July, Tara Shaver filed a formal criminal complaint with the Attorney General of New Mexico asking for a complete and thorough investigation of Boyd’s clinic following revelations that Planned Parenthood was taking part in a gruesome baby parts operation. Shaver indicated Boyd was also using the body parts of babies he aborted for research. She based her allegations on documents obtained by prolifewitness.org indicating SWO staff members are, “ in fact, harvesting baby body parts for use in medical research.”

The documents included copies Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) informed consent paperwork which every abortion patient must sign indicating that Boyd and (SWO) may be using aborted babies in medical research.

2015-abortion-consent-Fetal-SWO-Curtis-Boyd

The 2015 consent form (image above) states:

    “I understand that the pregnancy tissue will be removed from my body during this procedure. The pregnancy tissue may be examined here at the Clinic and the Clinic doctors may dispose of the tissue according to the law. The pregnancy tissue may be used for medical research.”

This consent form from 2012 (image below) says, “tissue and parts will be removed during the procedure.”

2012-Abortion-Consent-Southwestern-abortion-Boys-fetal-harvest

The form goes on to state, “and I consent to their examination and their use in medical research and their disposal by the clinic and/or physician in the manner they deem appropriate.”

Protest ABQ pointed out that New Mexico has a law prohibiting the selling of body parts. But despite the law, UNMH officials admitted to the Journal that they have been accepting fetal tissue from Boyd’s clinic for a decade claiming the abortionist is not paid for the baby body parts. In addition, Dr. Richard Larson, executive vice chancellor and vice chancellor for research at the UNMHSC, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, told the Journal that Boyd’s clinic is the school’s only supplier of fetal tissue.

To justify the use of dead children in the late gestational age, Larson told the Journal that the “fetal tissue” they collect from Boyd will, “reduce the mortality of premature babies, especially these extremely premature babies.” Officials also claim that their grisly research will reduce the likelihood of blindness, cognitive defects and other anomalies found in newborns between 24 and 30 weeks, the same age as the babies Boyd kills. In a May 2015 letter to UNMH, the Journal reports that Boyd specified that in abortions of less than 20 weeks, his doctors use “aspiration, dilation and evacuation.” Abortions after 20 weeks involve “feticide” by injecting the fetus with the drug Digoxin, Boyd’s letter states.

University officials still find the use of “fetal tissue” acceptable. What they are now publicly distancing themselves from is their training program with Boyd’s clinic and fellow abortionists staff who were described as “faculty” under the training agreements with UNM. The decision by UNMHSC officials to no longer send medical fellows or residents to Boyd’s clinic, follows a letter from New Mexico state Rep. Rod Montoya and other legislators who questioned top Health Sciences Center officials last July about the relationship with Boyd’s clinic and the use of “body parts” from women who have abortions there, the paper states. Montoya told the Journal that the argument could be made that the residents and fellows were helping the clinic augment its staffing for abortions.

“Initially, it had the appearance of being a transaction of sorts,” Montoya said, according to the Journal. “Of staffing in return for the body parts. That’s the appearance, and I informed them, ‘that’s how it appears to me,’ ” adding that he is concerned that there is no oversight of abortion clinics in the state.

“We know that the vast majority of New Mexicans believe we should not have a free-for-all when it comes to abortion
,” the Representative said.

In addition to the using fetal tissue for research in New Mexico a former employee of Boyd’s testified that he also had an agreement with the Director of Fetal Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center to use “large babies” for fetal research there. The former staffer, Nita Whitten, made this statement at a “Meet the Abortion Providers” workshop sponsored by the Pro-life Action League of Chicago, directed by Joe Scheidler:

“One thing that happened at the clinic that I worked at that was incredibly devastating, right before I left. Dr. Boyd had made an agreement with a doctor, and I cannot name this doctor because I just don’t think it would be wise to name him today, but he was the Director of Fetal Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center at that time. He had made an agreement with this doctor to give him our large babies for him to do fetal research on. They did this, and I believe at the time, it was against the law. I don’t know if it is now, and I’m not familiar with the legal terms because I’m not a lawyer, but I remember we were told not to tell anyone, and they only came in secret to get the babies…He had them come in and they dissected a baby for us in our lab room so we could see what they were doing with the body parts. They did that right there and everybody filed in and looked. I looked at it. I pretended like I was being brave and walked out. It made me sick.”

Bud Shaver described the University’s “fetal tissue research” program as unethical and immoral and said that he is now calling for them to cut all ties with the late term abortion doctor, “The University of New Mexico (UNM) has been caught red handed trafficking and using baby body parts for their medical research,” he told Saynsumthn.

“This is unethical and immoral which is why Protest ABQ is calling for UNM to cut all ties with Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) which is their sole provider of baby remains. The fact that the residency training rotation has been stopped at SWO is merely a bandaid on the bigger problem which is UNM’s overall radical abortion agenda which is what Protest ABQ is demanding UNM to halt,” he added.
