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.

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.

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.

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.

$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.

Obama’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative giving millions to abortion giant Planned Parenthood

Posted in Guttmacher, OAH, Planned Parenthood and teens, Teen Pregnancy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2014 by saynsumthn

When President Obama said that he did not want his daughters punished with a pregnancy- he wasn’t kidding.

Perhaps that was the motivation behind his creation of the The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) a government agency and division of the Health and Human Services Department.

Capture

According to Siecus, the OAH is part of President Obama’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative (TPPI), first funded in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 at $110 million, in public and private grants. The Initiative funds programs that “reduce teen pregnancy”.

TPPI is administered by the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), in cooperation with the Administration for Children and Families and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In 2012, OAH or TPPI was funded at $105 million.

OAH Initiatives

Planned Parenthood’s research arm, the Guttmacher Institute describes OAH this way, “The program emerged during final negotiations over the health care reform legislation enacted in March 2010. As partisans argued over provisions to prohibit insurance coverage of abortion when government funds are involved,Sen.BobCasey(D-PA)and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops pressed for the fund’s inclusion as part of the final legislation, characterizing it as a way to make it easier for vulnerable women to decide to carry their pregnancies to term.”

Guttmacher’s continues, they write, “Melinda Delahoyde, president of Care Net, a network of crisis pregnancy centers, in an article published by the Christian News Service. “Our hope is that the White House will be true to its word and use this money to reduce abortion by giving it to those organizations that truly help women choose life.”The Family Research Council’s criticism of the program was more direct: “How can [President Obama] find common ground on abortion if the Fund never mentions it?” Other activists, particularly in the antiabortion blogosphere, opposed the creation of the fund as a “social spending” program. Financial rewards, they say, incentivize the nation’s teens to have children.”

On the OAH website they claim to, “support and evaluate evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention (TPP) programs and implement the Pregnancy Assistance Fund.”

In addition the OAH coordinates HHS efforts related to adolescent health promotion and disease prevention; and communicates adolescent health information to health professionals and groups, those who serve youth, parents, grantees, and the general public. OAH is the convener and catalyst for the development of a national adolescent health agenda.

What is interesting are the goals that the Center for Disease Protection (CDC) lays out for OAH:

According to the CDC, “The purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching African American and Latino/Hispanic youth aged 15–19.

CDC
To achieve these goals for FY 2011–2015, nine state- and community-based organizations, including two Title X agencies, and five national organizations were funded through the cooperative agreement, Teenage Pregnancy Prevention: Integrating Services, Programs, and Strategies Through Communitywide Initiatives. These awards were made through two competitive funding opportunity announcements (FOA): one through a joint FOA from OAH and CDC, and one from a joint Office of Population Affairs and CDC FOA.

OAH seeks grantees to work in areas of high teenaged pregnancy and recently solicited applications to give away $890,000 in grant monies.
OAH Grantees

In addition, grantees of the OAH include….abortion giant Planned Parenthood, something the national office bragged about in 2010.

Although, it seems obvious that this initiative to assist women in pregnancy or prevent teenaged pregnancies is aligning with abortion promoters, we will surely discover more connections as this new government agency continues.

So, I will end with this tid-bit: A 2011 OAH Training Initiative included former Planned Parenthood and Siecus members. Hmmmm.
