Congressman to HHS Secretary on Planned Parenthood funding: unconscionable what are we going to do about this?

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, was recently grilled by lawmakers on her department’s funding of millions of federal dollars to Planned Parenthood following videos exposing their baby parts operation.

HHS Secretary Burwell

In the hearing on “Reviewing the Policies and Priorities of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services” conducted this week on ObamaCare, the HHS secretary denied that she could do anything to defund the abortion business.

Planned Parenthood has come under fire after three videos were released by the Center for Medical Progress showing the callous way the abortion giant haggles over prices of baby body parts from children they abort, possibly using an illegal procedure, once defended by Hillary Clinton, called Partial Birth Abortion.

You can watch the videos on this blog here, here, and here.

In the Congressional hearing, Secretary Burwell was specifically questioned by two Congressmen who said that they are receiving numerous calls concerned about this issue.

A transcript of the exchange is below:

Congressman Steve Russell: “Given that HHS Provides significant TitleX funding to Planned Parenthood, do you believe personally that the harvesting of infant body parts to be moral.”

Russell Planned Parenthood Title X Planned Parenthood

Burwell: “So, as I said, this is an issue that has, an important issue that has strong passions and strong beliefs abut the important of the research and other beliefs. And what I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on the issues of preventative care for women. Things like mammograms and cancer prevention screenings. With regard to our relationship there. With regard to the other issues the Attorney General I think right now is under review to make determinations as to what is the appropriate next step.”

She is then grilled again by U.S. Rep. Rick Allen.

U.S. Rep. Rick Allen: “What I want to zero in on is this Planned Parenthood thing. And, I would like some commitment from you here today, on when your department will conduct an investigation on this very very serious matter. Not only is it unconscionable but they’re breaking the law. And it’s a big issue with the people of this country. I mean it’s what I hear about every day. What are we going to do about this? Can you tell me when we’re going to do something about that? ”

Burwell HHS Planned Parenthood

Burwell “With regard to the Planned Parenthood issue, um as I said this is an important issue one that there is passion and emotion and belief on many sides of the issue and I want to respect that. With regard to our funding, I think you know, we do not fund abortions at the Federal Government – except- that the Hyde exception has been in place for many years.

“Our funding for Planned Parenthood is in another issue. With regard to the issue you raised, which is a question of whether it’s a legal issue and there are laws, and they’re are statutes that guide the use of fetal tissue that are in place and should be enforced.

“With regard to investigating or looking into those issues, I said because it is a statutory/legal issue the Department of Justice and the Attorney General has said she has taken those issues under review and will determine what the appropriate next step is.”

U.S. Rep. Rick Allen: “And that would include your investigation, I mean it should be like all hands on deck on this thing?”

BurwellWith regard to the question of a legal matter and I defer to our colleagues at the Justice Department, we will support them in anything they need or want from us and we always do that, but with regard to making those decisions, the question of an investigation of a legal matter…”

U.S. Rep. Rick Allen: Interrupted: “So you don’t have personnel that can look into this?”

“With regard to what we do have at the Department of HHS is this is not an issue in terms of us funding this specific issue. When we do have issues…”

Burwell “You deal with Medicare fraud…”

He is then stopped because his time for questions had expired.

OAH HHS Planned Parenthood

Life Dynamics has documented that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has recently granted $18.75 million in federal money to Planned Parenthood from the Office of Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) under HHS.

Read that here.

In addition to those federal dollars, Life Dynamics has also reported that an additional 5.6 million dollars in federal money was allocated to various Planned Parenthood affiliates under a teen prevention program run by HHS.

Read that here.

Child Pred Logo

Burwell claims that the HHS fudning is for the prevention of pregnancy, but Life Dynamics president Mark Crutcher has told OneNewsNow that Planned Parenthood is not interested in reducing the number of teen pregnancies rather they only want to reduce the number of teens that actually have their babies.

What you have to understand is that Planned Parenthood’s interest is not in reducing the number of teenage girls that get pregnant,” Crutcher alleges.

It’s in reducing the number of teenage girls that have babies, and those are two totally different things which they often try to sell as the same thing.”

Crutcher and his team recently documented again how Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry cover child rape.

The latest report, entitled, “The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse” gives horrific criminal case summaries of pedophiles who used abortion to cover their crimes. When sexual rapists take their young victims to an abortion facility or Planned Parenthood center they know that the chances they will be reported to authorities are slim.

The report also shows how the failure of abortion and Planned Parenthood clinics to comply with mandatory reporting laws is harming these minors who are often returned into the arms of their abusers after the abortion.

More Planned Parenthood vids coming as HHS grants them millions of dollars

David Daleiden Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

The lead investigator who exposed Planned Parenthood for harvesting aborted baby body parts has said he will unveil more tapes as millions in tax dollars are granted to PP from HHS for a teen pregnancy pregnancy.

Earlier this week, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) unveiled a shocking three year undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood’s grisly baby body parts operation.

Video clips of CMP investigators talking with a top Planned Parenthood medical doctor casually over sips of wine about the way a buyer could obtain organs such as livers, lungs, and brains from aborted children, has received almost 2 million hits.

I think these are really horrific and troubling actions for 99 percent of Americans,” CMP’s lead investigator, David Daleiden told to CBS News.

“Planned Parenthood is still receiving $50, $75, sometimes $100 per specimen per fetal part. So all of that is just straight up profit that goes to their bottom line,” Daleiden added.

Daleiden explained his investigation to Bill O’Reilly earlier in the week and how their investigators posed as real life middlemen from biotech companies in order to get the Planned Parenthood abortionist to meet with them.

Despite denials from Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, Daleiden said he believes his deeply embedded investigation will show Planned Parenthood is involved in illegal activity.

Planned Parenthood has been involved in selling the body parts of the babies that they abort for decades now at this point,” he told O’Reilly.

Asked if he was saying that Planned Parenthood was doing “something illegal” Daleiden replied, “absolutely.

Daleiden told CBS News that his group has up to a dozen more under videos he plans to unveil soon.

HHS FUNDS PLANNED PARENTHOOD WITH MILLIONS IN TAX PAYER DOLLARS

Last week it was discovered that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) granted Planned Parenthood $18.5 million in federal money.

The discovery came from a press release published by the largest chain of abortion clinics, that Planned Parenthood received the $18.75 million from the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) which is under the Department of Health and Human Services.

Read more on that here.

As Life Dynamics has previously reported, and additional $5.6 million dollars in federal money was allocated in July to various Planned Parenthood affiliates under a teen prevention program run by HHS.

TPP Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program Planned Parenthood

That announcement came July 4, 2015 from the Office of Adolescent Health, which is responsible for implementing and administering the national, evidence based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program.

You can read more on that here.

After hearing about the $5 million to Planned Parenthood, Life Dynamics president Mark Crutcher told OneNewsNow that Planned Parenthood is not interested in reducing the number of teen pregnancies rather they only want to reduce the number of teens that actually have their babies.

What you have to understand is that Planned Parenthood’s interest is not in reducing the number of teenage girls that get pregnant,” Crutcher alleges.

You can read that report if full here.

This week, Speaker of the House John Boehner called for congressional hearings into the practices of Planned Parenthood.

He then called for the head of HHS to denounce, and stop, Planned Parenthood’s gruesome practices.

Perhaps asking HHS to defund Planned Parenthood should be added to the Speaker’s list as well.

Cecile Richards PP Valentines abortion

NOTE that Cecile Richards gets paid well to promote Planned Parenthood.

Her recent video is laughable.

She apologizes for the abortionist’s tone but does not deny they gather and use the body parts of aborted children.

I want to be really clear, the allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way in tissue donations is not true.”

She then refers to her “100 year history,” one that was grounded in racist eugenics I might ad.

In the video one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion,” Richards states.

This is unacceptable and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements,” Richards adds.

NOTE: This was written by Saynsumthn’s editor and originally published at the Life Dynamics blog.

Planned Parenthood has just announced that $18.75 million in federal money has been granted to the eugenics founded abortion giant from the Office of Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) under HHS.

Last week, Life Dynamics reported that over 5.6 million dollars in federal money was allocated to various Planned Parenthood affiliates under a teen prevention program run by HHS.

Planned Parenthood 18.75 million HHS

Now, a press release from the largest chain of abortion clinics has revealed that Planned Parenthood has also received $18.75 million in federal grant dollars from the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) which is under the Department of Health and Human Services.

HHS seal_blue_gold_hi_res

It read:

    Today, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (PPGNHI) received $18.75 million in federal grant funding from the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH). The funding will support capacity building assistance, deliver inclusive health care to reduce pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth and implement pregnancy prevention programs to those living in rural communities beginning July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2020.

According to a separate Planned Parenthood release issued July of 2015, the money was issued to the Northwest Coalition for Adolescent Health (NWCAH), a group of Planned Parenthood affiliates covering a large portion of the western United States.

Northwest Coalition for adolescent health Planned Parenthood

In 2010, NWCAH received $20 million in grant money from the HHS run Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) to replicate the Teen Outreach Program where, “NWCAH plans to target a diverse population of the highest risk youth in grades 7-12 in a mix of rural and urban communities. The program will reach over 8,000 youth over the five year project period.”

As Life Dynamics has previously documented , Planned Parenthood received half a billion in tax monies, in addition to the OAH grants.

COVERING CHILD RAPE

Child Pred Logo

HHS continues to funnel millions in federal dollars to the abortion clinic chain despite documented evidence that Planned Parenthood has covered for child sexual predators by not reporting pedophiles who take young victims to their facilities to cover up their crimes.

A 2002 undercover investigation along with a report published in 2014 by Life Dynamics shows a repeated disregard for the young victims of rape.

In just one example listed on the latest report, Life Dynamics writes:

    Douglas Wayne Ring, 47, sexually assaulted “Wilma” from the time she was eight or nine until she was 20 resulting in three pregnancies.

    At the age of 16, Ring forced her to have an abortion at a Houston-area Planned Parenthood.

    Given that the abuse continued for many years afterward, it is clear the Planned Parenthood facility did not file a report.

    Wilma eventually contacted the Angleton, Texas, police and Ring was arrested on multiple charges related to the sexual assault of a child.

    In 2010, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

This blog has been exposing the Office of Adolescent Health otherwise known as OAH for a while.

It was created by the Obama Administration and operated under the division of the Health and Human Services Department and funded to the tune of $105 million.

Now, Life Dynamics has discovered that the OAH has allocated over 5 million dollars in federal grant money to various Planned Parenthood affiliates under a teen prevention program run by HHS.

TPP Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program Planned Parenthood

The announcement came July 4, 2015 from the Office of Adolescent Health, which is responsible for implementing and administering the national, evidence based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program.

The TPP program is described by OAH as, “one of a growing number of federal programs that focus on providing evidence of what works, investing in new and innovative approaches, and fostering a culture of learning.”

The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) was established in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health in 2010.

According to OAH:

    OAH coordinates adolescent health promotion and disease prevention programs and initiatives across the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and works in partnership with other HHS agencies to, “support evidence-based approaches to improve the health of adolescents.”

    OAH operates grant programs aimed at reducing teen pregnancy and supporting expectant and parenting teens and maintains an evaluation portfolio associated with these grants. OAH operates a website with extensive resources regarding adolescent health and leads collaborative activities with other federal agencies and national groups that serve adolescents

Since the program’s inception, OAH has worked in collaboration with HHS’ Administration on Children and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Reproductive Health to, “extend the reach of teen pregnancy prevention in targeted communities.”

According to OAH, a total of 81 organizations received the grant money to:

    Support replication of evidence-based TPP programs in multiple settings in communities with the greatest need;
    Increase capacity of organizations to implement evidence-based TPP programs focusing especially on serving especially vulnerable youth, including homeless youth, parenting youth and those in juvenile detention and foster care;

    Support and foster early innovations to fill gaps in the knowledge of what works to prevent teen pregnancy; and

    Develop and rigorously evaluate new, innovative approaches to combating teen pregnancy.

Grants for OAH’s 5 year program to run from 2015-2019 included abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

This is not the first time these OAH grant dollars have been given to Planned Parenthood, as Saynsumthn documents here.

In fact, I recently blogged about the program TeensRise, paid for by Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando and the Office of Adolescent Health.

Under that program, the abortion biz put together a recruitment video for African American teens in which they will be “Paid for Their Participation.” (read more here.)

Back to the new grant funding for 2015-2019:

A breakdown of the $5,679,657.00 grant dollars to the abortion business is detailed below:

Under what OAH labels their Tier1A, “Capacity Building to Support Replication of Evidence- Based TPP Programs” they gave $750,000 to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest Seattle Washington for “vulnerable youth.”

OAH Tier 1A Planned Parenthood Office of Adolescent Health Grant

In OHA’s Tier 1B, “Replicating Evidence-Based TPP Programs to Scale in Communities with the Greatest Need ” program, three Planned Parenthood affiliates received almost $3,000,000 in grant money:

In OAH’s Tier 2B, “Rigorous Evaluation of New or Innovative Approaches to Prevent Teen Pregnancy” program:

Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest Seattle, Washington received $2,000,000.

OAH 2million Planned Parenthood abortion HHS

$1,000,000, was allocated for “Family-based intervention for rural youth and their parents or caregivers” and another $1,000,000 for “Clinic-based intervention for LGBTQ teens and health care providers.”

In addition to the grants listed above, the abortion giant recorded receiving $528.4 million dollars in tax money, according to their 2013 to 2014 annual report.

Planned Parenthood uses the grant money and the federal tax dollars to line the pockets of their board members, presidents and directors of their abortion centers with six-digit salaries.

A document filed by Planned Parenthood to the IRS shows that their president, Cecile Richards, took home a salary of $451,752 plus $31,405 in compensation from related organizations and $107,771 in other compensation from Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood does not need more funding to conquer their goal of “making abortion normal” and this is just one more example of how the American people are being financially raped to fund abortion.

Pittsburgh school board won’t protect children from Planned Parenthood sex ed

Posted in HHS, Planned Parenthood HHS, Planned Parenthood School, Planned Parenthood sex ed, Sex Ed with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2015 by saynsumthn

From the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette:

    A proposal to set up a memo of understanding with Planned Parenthood for sex education of middle school students won approval tonight from the board of Pittsburgh Public Schools.

    The 6-1 vote came after board member Mark Brentley Sr. raised opposition, criticizing the history of Planned Parenthood, questioning what its role would be in the schools and saying it would put students at risk. Only Mr. Brentley voted in opposition. Members Terry Kennedy and Sherry Hazuda were absent.

    Board president Thomas Sumpter said that history included eugenics, but he said board members needed to consider whether it was offering a good program for students today.

    Dara Ware Allen, assistant superintendent for student support services, said she has reviewed all 24 modules — 12 for grade 7 and 12 for grade 8 — and said they addressed helping students to identify risky behavior, setting personal boundaries and practicing skills to avoid risky behavior.

    She said that abortion is not part of the curriculum, that the curriculum emphasizes abstinence and that it is in keeping with the district’s program. Parents can opt their children out of the program, which would be taught alongside the classroom teacher.

    Ms. Allen said Planned Parenthood is seeking a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the program. It is expected the organization will know whether it got the grant in July.

I was curious when I read about the grant and I wonder if if has anything to do with this (here)

Planned Parenthood has been a recipient of HHS grants many times before:

2012 Competitive Personal Responsibility Education Program Grant Awards

2013 Competitive Personal Responsibility Education Program Grant Awards

Florida Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Grantees

Virginia Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Grantees

Connecting the Hard-to-Reach with Pregnancy Prevention

Family Planning Grants:

HHS grants for Title X Family Planning Program

TeensRISE!

Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region received a grant of $395,000 a year to provide Title X Family Planning services.

There are many more, including Navigator grants to promote ObamaCare.

To Board president Thomas Sumpter I say that Planned Parenthood was seeped in Eugenics as I point out here and here.

In addition, Planned Parenthood has explicit sexual content they direct at children which I document here and here among other places.
