Michael New Life Talk Nov 2013On the November 2013 show, the cast of Life Talk interviews Michael New, Asst. Professor at the University of Michigan, Dearborn over how the Affordable Health Care Act pays for elective abortions.

TN Nov 2013 Life Talk

Operation Rescue president, Troy Newman suggests that Life Talk roll back the tape of the cast predicting that the Affordable Health Care Act is the abortion bailout fund.

Michael New says that ObamaCare will fund abortions through Medicaid expansion. He says that ObamaCare also creates state health care exchanges which are subsidized by tax dollars and fund abortions. New predicts that at least 100,000 more abortions will be publicly funded each year because of ObamaCare.

Newman adds that there is a third funding stream implemented by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, which mandates that the exchanges have a minimum of a $1.00/ per month surcharge to pay just for abortions. He says there is not a surcharge to pay for cancer screening only for abortions.

New agrees and says they are trying to make it appear that abortions are elective and that those who don’t want to pay for abortions can “opt out.” He points out that sometimes it is not clear which plans cover abortions and which ones do not.

Frank Pavone Lif eTalk Nov 213Fr. Frank Pavone responds, “Those that are radically promoting abortion through the channels of our government. They don’t care if people are confused or not. It is not an effort to make people understand, it is the effort to get monies into the abortion industries.”

Mark Crutcher Nov 2013 Life Talk
Mark Crutcher, producer of Life Talk and president of Life Dynamics said that one of the most idiotic statements he has ever heard was when Nancy Pelosi said “We’ve got to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it.”

Newman says that America has have gone from a passive funding of abortion to an active one. He calls the abortion surcharge a “direct violation of our freedom of conscience, our freedom of liberties, our religious principles to oppose child killing. This is a huge change and as Christians we must stand against it. For me, this is the Red Line. This is the line in the sand. I’m not going to participate in anything that actively goes out to fund abortions.”

Life Talk is a monthly pro-life TV show produced in Denton, Texas by Life Dynamics.

The show is hosted by Life Dynamics President, Mark Crutcher, Priests for Life National Director Fr. Frank Pavone, Operation Rescue president Troy Newman, Bloggers Destiny Herndon-DeLaRosa and Jill Stanek.

Planned Parenthood calls Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords a “close friend”

Posted in Abortion, Eugenics, FAIR, Harry Laughlin, Hate Crimes, Health Care, Immigration, Planned Parenthood, Richard Lamm, terrorism with tags , , , , , on January 10, 2011 by saynsumthn

In a statement released on their website: Planned Parenthood who was founded by a known racist Klan speaker ( Margaret Sanger) called Rep. Gifford a “close friend”.

Read Statement: Planned Parenthood Statement on Shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Statement from Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Bryan Howard, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona, on the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords:
“The thoughts, wishes, and prayers of the entire Planned Parenthood family are with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and all of the victims of the tragic shooting incident in Tucson, Arizona today. Congresswoman Giffords is an invaluable and indefatigable advocate and public servant whom we respect for her courageous leadership on behalf of the people of Arizona and women everywhere. She is a fearless champion of health care for all Americans, and she played a vital role in the passage of the most important health care legislation in our nation’s history. She is a close friend of Planned Parenthood, and our staff and supporters in Arizona and across the country fervently hope for her recovery. We mourn all who were killed in this tragedy, and we will keep their families in our thoughts and prayers.”

Planned Parenthood points to Giffords support of Health Care which they know would fund the group to increase their already million dollar-per-day payout from taxpayers. But, what is NOT stated here is the close ties Planned Parenthood past and present employees also has with the anti-immigration movement. Another reason Planned Parenthood may have considered the Congresswoman a “close friend”

Giffords represents a district in southern Arizona that borders Mexico, so immigration has been her main focus in Congress.

The Democrat approached the immigration debate in a nuanced fashion, mixing requests for more Border Patrol agents with calls to increase the number of work visas granted to foreigners.

She has said repeatedly that federal assistance was desperately needed to secure the border and protect residents there.

“(Arizona is) directly paying the price for the burden of all the drug smuggling and human smuggling and immigration,” she said last year. “I understand the anger that Arizonans have about illegal immigration. They’re angry and I’m angry.”

During her four years in Congress, she worked to pass legislation that created special penalties for people who use tunnels to traffic goods and people under the border, and won a difficult fight to retain $420 million to reimburse local law enforcement agencies for detaining illegal immigrants.

Last year, her constant calls for more security helped prompt President Obama to send 1,200 National Guard troops to the Southwest border and dedicate about $600 million to add Border Patrol agents and new monitoring technologies.

Even so, Giffords opposed the state law passed last year that would have required all the state’s law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of anybody they stopped, detained or arrested if a “reasonable suspicion” existed that the person was in the country illegally.

Here is a letter Rep. Giffords penned in 2009 on behalf of Planned Parenthood:

Don’t short-change women’s health care (Rep. Gabrielle Giffords)
By Ariz. Dem. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords – 07/24/09

An amendment was offered this week to restrict vital funding that provides preventive and primary health care to millions of women from being made available to one of our country’s most essential community providers – Planned Parenthood.

For over 90 years, Planned Parenthood has been a trusted preventive health care provider to over three million women, men, and teens a year. To deny funding to Planned Parenthood is, quite simply, to deny essential life saving health care for millions of Americans who have nowhere else to turn.

In my home state of Arizona, more than 57,000 women receive health care through the Title X family planning programs – this is the funding that would be cut off by proposed amendment. Planned Parenthood health centers across the state serve over half of these women with Title X funding – more than any other women’s health care provider in the state.

Beyond Arizona, Planned Parenthood has more than 850 health centers in 49 states. Last year alone they provided birth control to 2.3 million people, breast exams to 850,000 women and more than one million cervical cancer screenings. More than 90 percent of the care they provide is preventive. One out of every three women, 1.7 million, who receives Title X family planning health care does so at a Planned Parenthood health center and could potentially lose access to their trusted provider if this amendment is adopted.

In the current economic crisis, more women are turning to women’s health centers for basic health care. Women of childbearing age spend 68 percent more in out-of-pocket health care costs than men, in part because of reproductive health-related needs. The number of women in need of publicly funded family planning services (currently 17.5 million) increased by more than one million between 2000 and 2006.

Today, more than six in 10 patients who receive care at a women’s health center like Planned Parenthood consider it their primary source of health care. One in four women who receives contraceptive care does so at a women’s health center. One in six women who obtains a Pap test or a pelvic exam does so at a women’s health center, as do one-third of women who receive counseling, testing, or treatment for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. This basic health care is essential to give women the tools they need to protect and support their families.

For many women, and especially those in rural areas and underserved communities, Planned Parenthood is their only source of health care. Title X funding helps ensure these women have access to the high-quality, affordable and life-saving care they need through a trusted provider.

ObamaCare eugenic regs for Medicare may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment i.e. “death panels”

Posted in Death Panels, Eugenics, Euthanasia, Euthanesia, Glenn Beck, Health Care, Obama with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2010 by saynsumthn

According to the New York Times: When a proposal to encourage end-of-life planning touched off a political storm over “death panels,” Democrats dropped it from legislation to overhaul the health care system. But the Obama administration will achieve the same goal by regulation, starting Jan. 1.

Under the new policy, outlined in a Medicare regulation, the government will pay doctors who advise patients on options for end-of-life care, which may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment.

Congressional supporters of the new policy, though pleased, have kept quiet. They fear provoking another furor like the one in 2009 when Republicans seized on the idea of end-of-life counseling to argue that the Democrats’ bill would allow the government to cut off care for the critically ill.

The final version of the health care legislation, signed into law by President Obama in March, authorized Medicare coverage of yearly physical examinations, or wellness visits. The new rule says Medicare will cover “voluntary advance care planning,” to discuss end-of-life treatment, as part of the annual visit.

Under the rule, doctors can provide information to patients on how to prepare an “advance directive,” stating how aggressively they wish to be treated if they are so sick that they cannot make health care decisions for themselves.

While the new law does not mention advance care planning, the Obama administration has been able to achieve its policy goal through the regulation-writing process, a strategy that could become more prevalent in the next two years as the president deals with a strengthened Republican opposition in Congress.

Several Democratic members of Congress, led by Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Senator John D. Rockefeller IV of West Virginia, had urged the administration to cover end-of-life planning…

After learning of the administration’s decision, Mr. Blumenauer’s office celebrated “a quiet victory,” but urged supporters not to crow about it.

“While we are very happy with the result, we won’t be shouting it from the rooftops because we aren’t out of the woods yet,” Mr. Blumenauer’s office said in an e-mail in early November to people working with him on the issue. “This regulation could be modified or reversed, especially if Republican leaders try to use this small provision to perpetuate the ‘death panel’ myth.”

Moreover, the e-mail said: “We would ask that you not broadcast this accomplishment out to any of your lists, even if they are ‘supporters’ — e-mails can too easily be forwarded.”
The e-mail continued: “Thus far, it seems that no press or blogs have discovered it, but we will be keeping a close watch and may be calling on you if we need a rapid, targeted response. The longer this goes unnoticed, the better our chances of keeping it.”

The proposal for Medicare coverage of advance care planning was omitted from the final health care bill because of the uproar over unsubstantiated claims that it would encourage euthanasia.

The new policy is included in a huge Medicare regulation setting payment rates for thousands of services including arthroscopy, mastectomy and X-rays.
The rule was issued by Dr. Donald M. Berwick, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and a longtime advocate for better end-of-life care.

Mr. Berwick, has repeatedly made claims and statements that raise numerous questions about his ideas of rationing.

Such questions would have concerned his remarks attacking private-sector solutions to health care problems, in support of “rationing with our eyes open,” and speaking of his affection for the United Kingdom’s National Health Service as “romantic.” In footage discovered and highlighted by the Heartland Institute in May, Mr. Berwick made this audacious statement: “Any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized, and humane must, must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional.”
