Florida passes bills on abortion that could defund Planned Parenthood

Florida has become yet another state to defund Planned Parenthood. Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a law that cuts off state funding to clinics providing abortion and imposes abortion restrictions already being tested before the U.S. Supreme Court.

From the Courier Tribune:

    Abortion clinics throughout Florida will go without taxpayer funds, face increased reporting requirements and new hurdles for doctors providing the procedure under a bill signed Friday by Gov. Rick Scott.

    Scott, a Republican, did not make any comment on HB 1411, which was signed with 67 other bills, but the flood of statements from abortion rights and anti-abortion groups alternatively condemning and praising the move reflects the sharp divide over the issue.

    “As a result of this bill, thousands of people across Florida may no longer be able to access essential reproductive health care, such as cancer screenings, birth control, and well-woman exams,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. “This cruel bill is designed to rip health care away from those most at risk. Rick Scott has shown he will do all he can to strip basic care away from those who need it most.”

    But John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, an Orlando-based social conservative advocacy group, hailed the bill as protecting women’s’ health, since more inspections will ensure greater quality care.

    “This is a historic victory and we are thrilled to have been an active part of this effort,” Stemberger said.

A Report by TampaBay.com reads:

    Lawmakers wrote the new measure following last summer’s controversy over videos that appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials talking about their fetal tissue donation program.

    The law redefines the trimesters of a pregnancy, validating claims by state regulators last summer alleging Florida’s Planned Parenthood sites violated their licenses. And the funding cuts could affect six Planned Parenthood clinics.

Years ago, a Planned Parenthood lobbyist said that allowing babies to die on the table after being aborted was between the “Doctor and their patient.”

Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow testified against a ‘Born Alive’ infant protection bill that would give human rights to babies born after a botched abortion. She said doctors in abortion clinics should not be required to take such babies to a hospital, instead leaving the ‘choice’ of what to do up to them and their patients.

Other clinic regulations have also been proposed.

Starting July 1, abortion clinics will be required to have admitting privileges or transfer agreements with a nearby hospital. They also will face annual inspections by the state as part of a law that sponsor Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, said is about ensuring women’s safety.

“What we did with these clinics is just treat them similar to other surgery centers,” Stargel said.

Planned Parenthood: We want to do more late-term abortions

While Planned Parenthood publicly claims that abortions late in pregnancy are done mainly for severe fetal anomalies, undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress show Planned Parenthood abortionists discussing their expected weekly numbers of late-term, healthy “specimens” for procurement agencies and researchers – not ones with anomalies.

Planned Parenthood leadership, speaking to investigators they thought were fetal body parts harvesters, admitted that the amount of late-term abortions performed by Planned Parenthood is on the rise – and that this is intentional.

Abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood oppose 20 week abortion ban

Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Cecile Richards, Feminist Majority all oppose a ban on abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy.

Abortion rights advocates like to pretend that late term abortions only happen in cases of so-called “medical necessity” but a quick look at the way they advertise says otherwise.

Planned Parenthood 20 week abortion ad

This Planned Parenthood Center’s website makes no distinction on why you can get a 20 week abortion:

    An in-clinic abortion is performed using gentle suction and medical instruments to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. In clinic abortions are performed up to 20 weeks post-fertilization at our Houston location.

Planned Parenthood 20 weeks abortion

And this California Planned Parenthood tells girls:

    In-clinic abortion is offered up to 23 weeks and 6 days after the start of your last menstrual period. If your last period was after 23 weeks and 6 days, we can still help. Call us for a referral list of health care providers in your area that offer other abortion services.

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood brags on their action website that president Obama would veto a 20 week abortion ban:

Planned Parenthood Obama 20 week abortion ban

And they are correct, Obama is radically pro-abortion.

But, polls show that Americans are not comfortable and many oppose late term abortions, which occur legally within the US for any reason possible as demonstrated by these for profit abortion clinic advertisements:

On May 13, 2015 the second anniversary of the murder convictions of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell for killing babies at his “house of horrors” abortion clinic in Philadelphia, the House of Representatives is set to vote on a 20 week abortion ban.

Pro-life leaders say that at 20 weeks the unborn child can feel pain, but is not the sole reason for banning all abortions.

A chart published by the CDC for 39 states that reported abortions by gestation (520,304 of the 730,322 abortions reported in 2011) show that in those 39 states:

    335,748 abortions were performed at less than 8 weeks
    139,775 abortions were performed at 9-13 weeks gestation
    17,952 abortions were performed at 14-15 weeks gestation
    9,795 abortions were performed at 16-17 weeks gestation
    9,709 abortions were performed at 18-20 weeks gestation
    7,325 abortions were performed at 21 weeks gestation or greater
    .

A 2014 report published by the Lozier Institute found that the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that permit elective abortion past 20 weeks.

The vote in the House comes following new evidence that premature babies may have a greater chance of survival if hospitals intervene after birth.

According to Life News, the House has approved the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, Wednesday on a 242-184 vote with four Democrats (Reps. Cuellar, Langevin, Lipinski, and Peterson) voting for the bill and five Republicans voting against it (Reps. Dent, Dold, Hanna, Frelinghuysen) or voting present (Hice).

University of Iowa researchers Matthew Rysavy, a senior medical student, and Edward Bell, professor of pediatrics in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics, studied the cases of nearly 5,000 infants born before 27 weeks gestation at 24 academic hospitals participating in the Neonatal Research Network between 2006 and 2011.

What they found was that much of the difference in outcomes could be explained by whether efforts were made to save the life of the youngest infants after they were born.

At most centers, active care was not provided for infants born before 22 weeks into pregnancy. Active care was provided for all infants born at or after 25 weeks of pregnancy at almost all hospitals. However, between these two extremes—for infants born 22, 23, or 24 weeks into pregnancy—there was substantial variation among hospitals in whether infants were actively treated.

Results of the study, have been published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

But real life success stories of premature babies surviving at younger ages are becoming public.

Like twins Hunter Ryan Ridley and Darcy Louise Ridley were born on April 24, 2006 nearly 123 days early, approximately 22 weeks gestation.

Or, this baby boy, Jonathan Amos, born at a gestational age of 23 weeks:

Jonathan Amos born at 23 weeks here is 3 weeks old

And baby girl, Bella Davidson, who was born at 23 weeks weighing just 1lb 3oz.

This new data and ongoing evidence makes it harder for Planned Parenthood and the rest of their abortion advocates to convince the American public that legalized abortion-on-demand for any reason and at any stage of development is morally right.

Planned Parenthood doc: pro-lifers should focus on late term abortion

Posted in Late term abortion, Planned Parenthood late term abortions with tags , , , , , , on March 1, 2015 by saynsumthn

If the right-to-lifers are at all smart they will focus right in on the 39 week-old fetus.”

Those are the words of a former Planned Parenthood abortion doctor.

He was the medical director of Planned Parenthood and in 1990 he resigned over a dispute with the abortion giant regarding late term abortions.

Planned Parenthood doctor, Stanton Goldstein performed abortions, and for over five years he oversaw administration at two of Planned Parenthood’s Massachusetts abortion clinics.

I’m against this referendum as it legalizes abortion up to delivery,” Goldstein told the Boston Globe, “I cannot think of a single reason for aborting a healthy baby,” he said.

The Planned Parenthood abortionist told the Globe that members of the medical community also objected to the proposed amendment which would have allowed late term abortion for reasons of rape or incest.

Goldstein told the AP that he left his job at Planned Parenthood because he could not join the group in backing abortion rights ”at any time in cases of rape or incest or to protect the life and health of the mother.”

In contrast, a Brookline Planned Parenthood abortionist and board member, Dr. James Koch, told the Globe he was okay with the idea of late term abortions but said, “I would perhaps he happier if there were less latitude beyond 24 weeks, with better spelling out of the circumstances under which a termination could take place at that time,” he said.

But then Koch added, the Planned Parenthood board voted unanimously for the amendment of abortions at any time in the pregnancy.

Nicki Nichols Gamble, executive director of the state office of Planned Parenthood, said she agreed with the amendment, while Planned Parenthood’s associate director at that time, Susan Newman, told the Boston Globe, she was also okay with the measure.

Everybody’s got their own ambivalence,” she said. “Abortion is such a personal thing that people set personal criteria. The one thing we’re united on is it should be a woman’s decision and not the governments.”

Newman, then told the AP that the language, “is not the first choice for a lot of people. But she said the number of abortions performed after the second trimester was ”tiny.”

Newman’s flippant answer appeared to annoy Goldstein, who pointed out to the AP, “If the number of abortions performed after the second trimester is so ‘tiny’ then why are we legislating for it? Is it so ‘tiny’ because it has not been legal up till now?”

As hard as it is to comprehend, some abortionists find killing babies days before birth repulsive. That said, Planned Parenthood doesn’t.

As Goldstein explained to the Associated Press, “I was in an administrative role in an organization that stood for something politically that I could not agree with.”

“It goes too far for me,” he said. “I as a physician believe that a destructive procedure in the third trimester is either unethical or immoral …” he said.

Sadly, Planned Parenthood’s acceptance of late term abortion has never waned.

Planned Parenthood spokesperson: extremely Rare for women to need late term abortion for medical reasons

” It’s extreme rare, if nonexistent, for a physician to have a medical reason to abort a woman in the seventh or eighth month.” ~ Rosa R Middleman, Medical Director of Pittsburgh’s Planned Parenthood, 1972.
