Planned Parenthood prez: Lives at stake this election

The president of the largest chain of abortion clinics in the nation actually had the audacity to claim that lives are at stake in this election. TheStranger.com cited Cecile Richards from a rally held recently in Washington State:

    “We’re in the most momentous election in terms of reproductive rights that most of us have seen in our lifetime,” Richards told a room of supporters at the Washington State Convention Center, where she praised Washington Governor Jay Inslee and the state’s Democratic senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. “Lives are at stake in this election.

Planned Parenthood admits to aborting over 300,000 babies annually and receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenues. So, by admitting that “lives are at stake,” in this election, perhaps Richards, who also thinks we need to “humanize” abortion is referring to the ongoing investigation into their aborted baby body parts scandal. Or maybe, it is the complete disregard Planned Parenthood has for the safety of women who come to them for abortions. Women like Tonya Reaves whose so-called “safe/legal” abortion landed her in the morgue or the many women who are removed from the abortion chain in ambulances. One can only guess.

Cecile Richards Planned Parenthood

In their interview, the Stranger, quotes Richards as admitting that abortion on demand was “literally on the ballot in November.”

    Members of Congress have “passed more restrictions on reproductive access in the short time they’ve been in office than any Congress I’ve known of,” Richards told me. “I think Roe v. Wade is literally on the ballot this November.”

Cecile Richards Lives at Stake

Earlier this week, the Planned Parenthood CEO was in Wisconsin to stump for Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. She told supporters, who gathered at the home of a Dane County gubernatorial candidate, that “This is sort of the pinnacle of everything we’ve fought for all our lives.” At the Wisconsin meeting Madison.com reports that Richards claimed this election would be the biggest election in terms of investment from Planned Parenthood’s political action committee. And they are not kidding.

For the first time in a presidential election, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Planned Parenthood ENdorses Hillary

In their endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Richards called the planning of children, which, according to Hillary and Planned Parenthood, includes the right to kill the preborn in the womb, “Absolutely fundamental to everything we can do.”

Hillary Clinton, Planned Parenthood’s idol second only to their eugenics founder Margaret Sanger has been a long time advocate of abortion even defending the gruesome Partial Birth Abortion procedure.

Hillary Clinton recently referred to the preborn in the womb as ‘unborn persons,’ telling Chuck Todd that although they are persons they do not have Constitutional Rights.

    Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.

Hillary clintonMargaret Sanger

That dangerous mentality is right in line with Planned Parenthood who, in 2009, Planned Parenthood gave Hillary Clinton their top award, the Margaret Sanger Award. Now, Planned Parenthood hopes to reward Clinton by ushering her into the White House. But, with the potential of another eight years of radical abortion politics, I would agree that one thing is for sure this election, lives really are at stake!

Pro-life leader suggests Planned Parenthood CEO deceitful in claiming affiliates do not harvest baby parts

Posted in Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood lies, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts, Planned Parenthood six digit salary, Pro-life Waco with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 12, 2015 by saynsumthn

A Texas pro-life leader has accused the CEO of as Planned Parenthood affiliate of lying when he claimed that the Planned Parenthood centers he runs do not participate in the harvesting of aborted baby parts.

The claim follows the latest release from the Center for Medical Progress showing the callous way a Texas Planned Parenthood abortion doctor removes an unborn child so she can extract the baby’s organs.

Texas Planned Parenthood breach abortion

The clip was originally published on the Glenn Beck Program, hosted by Live Action’s president, Lila Rose. Rose showed the shocking video during an interview she conducted with CMP’s lead investigator David Daleiden.

PP CMP Lila Glenn Beck 472006368_n

Daleiden told Rose that the footage showed a conversation between him and Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’ (PPGT) Austin abortionist Dr. Amna Dermish.

According to the CMP head, Dermish performs abortions up to 24 weeks, and describes how she manipulates the unborn baby into a “breech” position in order to obtain get the organs she desires intact.

I don’t routinely convert to breech but I will if I have to,” Dermish is heard telling CMP in the tape.

Dermish Planned Parenthood abortion

As with other videos, the goal of each Planned Parenthood abortion doctor is to kill the unborn child while preserving as many of the infant’s organs as possible. This enables them to potentially increase the profit from each abortion by selling the tissue they extract.

Dermish callously tells Daleiden how she removes the baby “trunk in tact” adding that the “20 weekers” are more difficult.

I always try to and keep the trunk intact, just by function. I always try to aim for a spine to bring it down,” she says.

The Center for Medical Progress has released several under cover tapes accusing Planned Parenthood of breaking the law by profiting off the sale of aborted baby body parts. This has spurred testimony on Capitol Hill prompting citizens and lawmakers to call for Planned Parenthood to be defunded of their almost $528 million dollars in federal tax monies annually.

The clip below was streamed live on Oct 8, 2015

John Piscotta

John Pisciotta, Director of Pro-Life Waco, told Saynsumthn that the PPGT affiliate, which Dermish is associated with operates Planned Parenthood centers Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and Waco. PPGT’s CEO is Ken Lambrecht.

“The Waco Planned Parenthood clinic no longer performs abortions but still counsels for abortions to be performed at sister facilities in Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin,” Pisciotta stated.

Although the clip does not state clearly that Dermish’s abortion “technique” is used to harvest the child’s organs, it follows the other under cover videos where that was the motive. In the clip, Dermish describes how she tries to keep the baby’s trunk [ or torso] intact and to keep the calvarium or head in tact.

Pisciotta quotes from the clip:

Buyer: “If there’s a request for fetal brain, they’re always wanting both hemispheres.”

Planned Parenthood Abortionist: “Um, I haven’t been able to do that yet—”

Buyer: “Oh, to get the calvarium?”

Planned Parenthood Abortionist: “Intact.”

Buyer: “Maybe next time.”

Planned Parenthood Abortionist: “I know, right? We’ll just give you something to strive for!” [laughing]

Cecile RIchards Ken L Planned Parenthood

“The new video brings Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas into the spotlight of the fetal tissue harvesting scandal, along with Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast headquartered in Houston,” notes Pisciotta.

Pisciotta said that what he heard in that clip was enough to convince him that PPGT’s CEO Ken Lambrecht lied when he said in a July 29 statement that PPGT has never been involved in the harvesting and sale of fetal organs:

    “The health centers and ambulatory surgical centers affiliated with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas have never participated in fetal tissue donation or research, though we recognize it is a standard practice within the medical community,” Lambrecht said in a press release.

Planned Parenthood Greater Texas baby parts abortion

Lambrecht earns a hefty six-digit salary from Planned Parenthood to redirect any bad publicity and keep the dollars rolling in.

A 2013 990 from PPGT shows the CEO made over $300,000 from the abortion harvesting business that year.

KenLambrecht Planned Parenthood 990

Pisciotta’s suggestion that the PPGT CEO lied about their affiliate’s role in the harvesting scheme is yet another reason that Planned Parenthood cannot be trusted and should be defunded and closed for their horrific practices of killing babies and scavenging their bodies for parts.

MORE ON AMNA DERMISH

Dermish who was trained by another Planned Parenthood abortionist exposed by CMP, Deborah Nucatola, has stated that she now trains others to perform abortions as well:

    It is also a decision that cannot and should not be made by anyone other than the woman herself with the support of her physician. Because of this I remain determined to not only provide abortion care, but to speak out on behalf of these women, to train others to provide, and to stand in solidarity with my colleagues.

But, the Medical Director for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas in Dallas, Darrel Jorden, who once testified on a state law requiring abortion doctors have the same standards as other surgical centers, said at the time that the Planned Parenthood Austin doctor did not have admitting privileges. Whether that doctor was Dermish was not specified in his testimony.

Dermish once stated that it was a given that she would provide abortions,

    I never questioned whether or not I would provide abortions–it was always a given. As an obstetrician-gynecologist, I see abortion as another part of the comprehensive care that I can provide my patients…”

Amna Dermish Planned Parenthood

Dermish is currently schedule to address an American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) educational event later this month at St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas in Austin, where she will address, of all things ETHICS “Ethics CME – Amna Dermish, MD Legal and Ethical Considerations in Pregnancy Termination.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America audit revealed over $62 MILLION paid in employee compensation

Posted in Planned Parenthood Audit, Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood rich off taxpayers, Planned Parenthood six digit salary with tags , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2015 by saynsumthn

An Independent audit on Planned Parenthood Federation of America published December 5, 2014 by KPMG, revealed some interesting facts.

KPMG’s Charities practice audits over 200 charity clients nationwide and work with many other charities in a tax or other advisory relationship.

Planned Parenthood received half a billion dollars from the federal taxpayer annually. They are the nation’s largest provider of abortions in all trimesters ranging in the hundreds if thousands of babies killed every year according to their own records. In addition, Planned Parenthood has been accused by the group The Center for Medical Progress for selling the body parts of babies they abort, some alegedly still alive when they are “procured.”

By June of 2014, PPFA’s total assets totaled: $367,254,551.

A sampling of Planned Parenthood salaries can be found here.

According to a 2015 report from American Life League’s STOPP 78 percent of Planned Parenthood’s clients receive incomes below the federal poverty level. Yet, the combined salaries of its CEOs was $11,536,408 in 2013.

The audit revealed that PPFA holds a long term debt balance for revenue bonds issued in 2012 and purchased by Bank of America in New York. The proceeds of the bonds were utilized for PPFA’s New York office space. The loan amount was $30,000,000.

Planned Parenthood Bank of America

As a side note, Bank of America has been the target of a Waco pro-life group who said they are hoping to convince BOA to stop matching employee funds to Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life Waco recently conducted a demonstration outside the Waco Bank of America Branch to educate the public.

Of course our goal is to convince Bank of America to terminate its matching donation for employees who give to Planned Parenthood.” organizer John Pisciotta said.

When the BOA capitulation finally comes, this will be another blow delivered to Planned Parenthood for their brutal, deadly, and disgraceful treatment of preborn babies,” he added.

KPMG is listed by Evaluetor as a company that funds Planned Parenthood.

BROWN, Managing Director for KPMG, served either as President or Chairman of the Board’s of the Denver Public Library Commission, Denver Public Library Friends Foundation, the Iliff School of Theology, as well as Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, according to his own bio published online.

KPMG has also audited IPPF.

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:

2012, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) 990:

Baby killing Planned Parenthood asks where RTL movement is “for babies who have left womb”

Posted in Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood six digit salary, Pro-choice Spin, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

I recently came across a ridiculous tweet from Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio.

Planned Parenthood RTL babies left womb

It read, “Where is the right to life movement for the babies that have left the womb?!”

I never understand these kind of messages or questions especially from the killer of babies.

To me, if Planned Parenthood were to be honest, they could have tweeted this way, “Where is the right to life movement for the babies we fail to murder?”

But to the larger point of accusing pro-life people of not caring for born babies I always ask those posing this question, do you know every pro-life person?

I happen to know quite a few and have found them to be among the most generous people you could meet.

Many volunteer hours of their week to help single moms, babies, the sick, elderly, disabled, etc.

They run and fund soup kitchens, hospitals, pregnancy centers, schools, medical centers, work as volunteers for various community organizations, not to mention their donations to churches which also help the poor and downtrodden.

As a pro-lifer for over 30 years I have personally taken in pregnant girls, supported them, helped single moms pay for the schooling of their children, babysat, gave car rides, worked in my community in various ways, supported many organizations who also help the poor, visited prisons, gave emotional support to the elderly and those with emotional and physical disabilities, fed the homeless, and on and on and on.

Generally, when an abortion advocate makes this claim to me in person, I immediately challenge them to open their check book register and show me all the ways they contribute to the poor. I challenge them to show me their check register and I will show them mine. This is not a bragging point, it is just that the ridiculous claim that pro-lifers don’t care about born people must be refuted.

I find most pro-lifers to be simple and honest people who would never wear their charitable activities on their sleeve. For that, they get slandered and falsely accused.

Planned Parenthood of all groups knows this accusation is a bold faced lie.

In 2013 alone, Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,653 abortions.

The organization gets half a billion in federal tax revenues annually which they use to line the pockets of their directors and employees with six digit salaries.

STephanie K Knight PP OH pic

Case in point, Stephanie F. Kight is the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and its advocacy arm, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio who posted the tweet that inspired this blog post.

If you look at the 2012 990 for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio alone, Kight earned $229,500.

I don’t know about you – but a lot of “born people” could get help with that kind of money.

STephanie K Knight PP OH 2

In reading their slanderous tweet it reminds me that if a group will lie to be allowed to legally murder babies for profit – they will lie about anything!

But, just in case Planned Parenthood reads this blog post, perhaps they will learn the most important point and that is, for a person to need help outside the womb they first need to make it out of the womb and not aborted.

Planned Parenthood director on Medicaid audit claims “no wrongdoing no fraud”

Posted in Financial mismanagement, Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood fined by state, Planned Parenthood medicaid fraud with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

In 2010, Planned Parenthood of the Inland Northwest agreed to pay the state $345,000 after settling a 2009 audit that uncovered the clinic used incorrect codes and provided insufficient documentation for some claims billed to Medicaid.

The original audit finding estimated the Spokane family-planning organization improperly billed Medicaid more than $629,000 for 333 patient procedures from March 2004 through February 2007.

During that time, the clinic collected about $7.6 million from Medicaid.

Planned Parenthoods in New Jersey were also investigated that same year.

In 2012, a published report said that Illinois Medicaid’s inspector general was investigating the billing practices of Planned Parenthood of Illinois’ medical director.

Crain’s Chicago Business reported more than $3 million in Medicaid funds going to the Planned Parenthood doctor made her the Illinois program’s second-highest-paid doctor.

In 2013, Planned Parenthood’s Houston-based affiliate settled for $4.3 million with the state of Texas after an audit revealed that the agency charged for “fraudulently over billing the taxpayer-funded Medicaid program.

TX AG MEdicaid Fraud

So when Nicole Safar, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin’s policy director claimed audits in her state of the abortion giant would only turn up compliance, it looked rather suspicious to me.

Nicole-Safar

The investigation stems from a letter 28 Wisconsin State Representatives and 4 State Senators wrote calling for an investigation into family planning centers and Planned Parenthood centers in the state.

PPWI request for Planned Parenthood audit

As Life Dynamics reports, the letter asked co-chairmen of the non-partisan Joint Legislative Audit Committee, “conduct a comprehensive independent audit of Wisconsin’s Medicaid family planning providers including Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI) .”

PPWI

The letter detailed what it calls “red flags” already discovered by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) at the Department of Health Services against two family planning facilities, (NEWCAP and Wisconsin Family Planning Health Services) in the state which over-billed the state a combined total of $3.5 million.

The letter states that several other states report, “similar findings with Planned Parenthood and other Medicaid family planning providers.”

They point to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article which states, “All of the family planning clinics, including those run by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, are paid the same rate by the state.”

In response to the previous investigation of the prior family planning facilities, Nicole Safar, director of policy and legal advocacy for Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, told the Journal, “We are all doing it the same way.”

Planned Parenthood Wisconsin Audit

The lawmakers write that Planned Parenthood’s statement in that article is troubling, “It is peculiar and deeply troubling,” they said, “that any large recipient of taxpayer dollars would pre-emptively divulge that they are guilty of massively defrauding the government and actively in violation with their billing practices, with no plans to change or reimburse taxpayers–and yet that is precisely what Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin is admitting to.

But, of course, Planned Parenthood is crying foul and the media is listening.

As Safar so boldly stated before the audit has even begun, “Any sort of audit of family planning providers is only going to show widespread compliance. There is no wrongdoing, there is no fraud,” Safar said. “Anyone can shine a light on us.”

Americans United for Life has documented known and alleged abuses by Planned Parenthood, in a published entitled, The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood, including: misuse of federal health care and family planning funds including that audit reports and admissions by former employees detail a pattern of misuse by some Planned Parenthood affiliates. (read here)

A 2014 report by the legal group, Alliance Defending Freedom, entitled, “Profit No Matter What,” makes similar claims.

So forgive me if I do not buy what Safar is selling !

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood CEO “We need to work on our brand”

Posted in Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood Mega Centers, Planned Parenthood six digit salary with tags , , , , , , , on January 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, CEO, Laura McQuade said that abortion giant Planned Parenthood needs to work on their “brand.”

laura-mcquade-mug 304xx1200-1800-144-84

We need to work on our brand so that people recognize us as the health care provider that we are and don’t just come to us for one-off service,” she told the Kansas City Business Journal.

Over the next 12 months, our goal is to make Planned Parenthood a choice, rather than just a safety-net provider,” she stated.

Between 2000 and 2010- the Center for Disease Control reported 9,122,134 abortions were performed in the United States.

Although this number may not reflect all abortions performed in the United States it is one of the accepted stats for abortion numbers.

For those same years (2000 – 2010) Planned Parenthood reported performing 2,298,621 abortions.

McQuade said Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, which routinely objects to legislation which would force protective upgrades to abortion clinics, is set to break ground on an expansive renovation project.

The process includes a $1 million-plus renovation of PPKM’s headquarters and largest clinic in Overland Park, as well as upgrades to all nine of its regional clinics.

The waiting room is a really important space for people,” she said.

McQuade moved to Kansas City about six months ago to take over as the Planned Parenthood CEO.

According to Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri latest 990 on file from 2013, previous CEO raked in $151,380 in salary and $13,749 in other compensation from the organization.

That same year, the abortionist took home a whopping $245,445 in salary and $7,107 in other compensation, for child killing, which would be expected to increase with the new megacenter!

McQuade, for purposes of PR and media spin, claims she wants to change Planned Parenthood’s abortion “brand” while the organization continues to list their “bread and butter” services of Abortion first on their website.
