Planned Parenthood “Heck Yes” to Ginsburg comes on heels of Gruber abortion comments

On the heels of a video by disgraced ObamaCare architect, Jonathan Gruber who said that abortion would save the taxpayers money because it would basically eliminate the poor, comes Planned Parenthood’s “Heck Yes” on another eugenics leader who said something similar.

No sooner did eugenics documentary and Planned Parenthood history film producer, Mark Crutcher release a statement comparing Jonathan Gruber’s comments on abortion to statements made by Supreme Court Justice and radical abortion advocate Ruth Bader Ginsburg – that – abortion giant Planned Parenthood gave her the “Heck Yes” award.

Planned Parenthood Ginsburg Heck Yes

There were times in 2014 when we just wanted to stand up and give a round of applause,” writes the eugenics founded Planned Parenthood organization,”When people spoke up for women’s health and rights so boldly, so bravely, so perfectly, we couldn’t help but cheer them on. As this year comes to a close, we took a look back with Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Best and Worst of 2014, and asked you to vote for the top “Heck Yes!” moment of the year.

Drumroll please…
And the Winner Is:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

Planned Parenthood continues, “U.S Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave us our “Heck Yes!” Moment of the Year for her scathing dissent in the Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby. In June, she wrote that the Court’s ruling — which lets some bosses deny their employees birth control coverage — is so startlingly broad that it can override the health care needs of employees and their dependents across the country.

“There were so many gripping lines from her 35-page dissent it’s hard to pick our favorite. In one of the most ominous, she warned that the precedent being set “would deny legions of women who do not hold their employers’ beliefs access to contraceptive coverage. The Court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.”

Maafa21 logo

Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher writes on his blog, “In 2009, we released Maafa 21 – a 2 hour documentary in which we proved that the legalization of abortion had nothing to do with women’s rights, or choice, or reproductive freedom or any of the other sales pitches you hear from the abortion lobby. The truth is, abortion was legalized as an instrument of eugenics and racial genocide.

RuthBaderGinsberg

“Ironically, within a few months after we released Maafa21, the most radical abortion enthusiast on the U.S. Supreme Court issued a statement to the New York Times that confirmed exactly what we were saying. Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated, “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

“Here’s my question: when she said that abortion was legalized to deal with populations we don’t want to have too many of, do you get the feeling she was suggesting that there might be too many rich white people in the world? Or is it possible she might have had some other folks in mind?

And the answer is clear – YES she did. if you want to know who Ginsburg was referring to- watch the film Maafa21 – which is available to view in full on the website http://www.maafa21.com.

Jonathan Gruber CSPAN Hearings Dec 9 2014

Ironically, just yesterday during a Congressional hearing with ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber, Kentucky Representative Thomas Massie exposed the very thing that Ginsburg stated in 2009 during his questioning of Gruber.

(Partial Transcript Below: )

MASSIE:I have a question for you have you. Have you had any ethics training at MIT or Harvard ?

GRUBER: I as a condition for receiving federal grants we have to take a human subjects

MASSIE: okay so this is a little bit philosophical what I’m gonna ask you now but you’re doctor of philosophy so to speak. Under what circumstances is it ethical to deceive someone for their own benefit?

GRUBER: Uh…I’m not aware circumstances in which I ..

MASSIE: Could you could you imagine maybe an adult could withhold information from children for their own benefit?

GRUBER: I guess

MASSIE: Now so if you understand that then you understand why my constituents are so offended by your proposition that it’s okay to deceive or obfuscate for somebody’s benefit compounding the insulted you delivered to them is the fact that they pay your salary . Do you did you understand fully why it was so insulting? You patronize them you were condescending.

GRUBER: I was

MASSIE: And my colleagues on the Democrat side of the isle are upset with you simply because you committed candor- you said what you thought- you said what they were all thinking -when they wrote road Obamacare – that they knew what was best for my constituents. I submit to you my constituents are not your children. And they have the right to self-determination. So this gets me to another instance where you commit candor.

In 1997 you co-authored a paper entitled , “Abortion legalization and child living circumstances who was the marginal child?” On page twenty you conclude that abortion legalization appears to be associated with an improvement in the average living circumstances and birth outcomes among a birth cohort and on page 26 you state that your research indicates that the legalization of abortion saved the government fourteen billion dollars in welfare payments through 1994.

Is providing more access to abortion – is that a worthy social outcome to achieve cost savings for the government?

GRUBER: That is uh not what my paper was about. It was a philosophical paper it was about empirical facts…

MASSIE: tell us what you meant by this sentence by 1993 all cohorts under the age 18 were born under legalized abortion and we estimate steady state savings of 1.6 billion dollars per year from positive selection. What did you mean by positive selection? Because in this paper you’re talking about providing more access to abortions to a socio-economic strata of our constituents.

MASSIE: What did you mean by positive selection?

GRUBER: In that paper, we were studying the characteristics of children who were born before and after abortion was legalized. By comparing those characteristics you can infer the characteristics as a ….

MASSIE: So what’s you inferred I find chilling. What you inferred is that if we reduce the number of people of children born life would be better for the rest of us still living. Specifically, you seem to suggest that if we eliminate or reduce the number of poor people that are born this will make life better for all Americans. And this gets me to my final point, which is the Independent Payment Advisory Board, my constituents fear that this is in fact a method by which Obamacare will ration health care for the elderly and therefore implement cost savings for Medicare. So, my question to you is, is your philosophy on abortion, that it can save money and improve outcomes, have any implications in the realm with end of life care? You argue that abortions for poor (?) children raise the average living circumstances in your paper, for the rest of us and save the government money. So, Dr. Gruber, if there are fewer elderly people, particularly poor elderly people, wouldn’t that save a ton of money to? As an economist wouldn’t that would save money too and do you understand the dangerous implications of going down this path?

GRUBER: I have no philosophy of abortion. I have no philosophy of end of life care. My job’s an economist is to deliver the empirical facts ( ??) can make the necessary..

MASSIE: And what would your facts be on the elderly?

GRUBER: I don’t understand the question?

MASSIE: the end of Life Care? Do you advocate that the federal government should ration that?

GRUBER: no I …

MASSIE: as an economist would it save money?

GRUBER: I do not advocate the federal government’s should ration end of life care.

MASSIE: thank you, I yield back.

Crutcher summarized Gruber’s comments well, “Gruber tried bobbing and weaving around Congressman Massie’s questions but, in the end, it was clear his position was that legalized abortion has allowed our country to kill off the children of the poor and, thereby, provide a higher quality of life for those who are still living. In one of his previous writings he had described the victims of abortion as “marginal children” and referred to the process of eliminating them as “positive selection.” During his testimony he refused to define exactly what “positive selection” means, but you’d have to actually be as stupid as Gruber thinks you are not to understand what he was saying.

“So let’s recap. Now we have not one, but two, radical, high-profile, godless abortion supporters, confirming what we documented in Maafa 21. First, Ruth Bader Ginsburg admits that eugenics was the driving force behind the legalization of abortion, and then Jonathan Gruber admits that it’s working exactly as it was intended. And make no mistake, everyone at the top of the abortion lobby food chain has also known that this was the agenda since day one. They know that this issue is about political power, money, race and eugenics, but unlike Ginsburg and Gruber, they don’t go out in the public and talk about it.”

Where is the proof that “every dollar spent on family planning saves taxpayers money?”

Posted in Family Planning, Guttmacher, Planned Parenthood Poor Women on June 26, 2014 by saynsumthn

Are the sellers of abortion and “family planning” using similar tactics to convince the American public that both are needed?

When abortion was legalized one strategy implemented by advocates of abortion was to inflate the numbers of women killed from illegal abortion. One of the founders of the National Association for the Repeal of the Abortion Laws in the U.S. in 1968 was Bernard Nathanson and he explains their tactics, “We announced to the media that we had taken polls and that 60% of Americans were in favor of permissive abortion. This is the tactic of the self-fulfilling lie. Few people care to be in the minority.

“We aroused enough sympathy to sell our program of permissive abortion by fabricating the number of illegal abortions done annually in the U.S. The actual figure was approaching 100,000 but the figure we gave to the media repeatedly was 1,000,000. Repeating the big lie often enough convinces the public. The number of women dying from illegal abortions was around 200-250 annually. The figure constantly fed to the media was 10,000. These false figures took root in the consciousness of Americans convincing many that we needed to crack the abortion law.”

Today, the push for “family planning” is being pushed as a way to save federal money! But, I wonder- just where these figures originate and if they are accurate. Looks to me that all the “studies” published on this topic come from Planned Parenthood’s research arm, The Guttmacher Institute!

In June of 1965, Democratic President Lyndon Johnson stated that every five dollars the government spent on population control was worth more than a hundred dollars invested in economic growth.

LBJ FP Saves Gov Money

Then, at the urging of Republican Congressman, George Bush, Johnson became the first U.S. president to endorse federal funding for birth control.

LBJ and Planned Parenthood

In 1966, he would also accept Planned Parenthood’s highest award for his policies pushing family planning on foreign countries.

NOTE: the above is quoted from the documentary film – Maafa21

PLANNED PARENTHOOD:

In 2005, Planned Parenthood claimed that Family Planning saved taxpayers $3.00 for every dollar spent.

Screenshot 1

By 2014- that cost savings rose to $6.00…allegedly!!

In a just released video from Planned Parenthood, president Cecile Richards makes the same claim, “for every dollar spent on family planning taxpayers save nearly six dollars in public money.”

PP BC Vid dollar FP savings

______________________________________________________

Conflicting Figures?

A separate 2014 release from Planned Parenthood notes the savings to be $3.00 not $6.00 as PP’s prez just stated.

According to Planned Parenthood, “Title X family planning programs have been key in helping millions of American women prevent unintended pregnancies and obtain reproductive health care for more than 30 years. Research has found that each public dollar spent to provide family planning services saves an estimated $3.00 that would otherwise be spent in Medicaid costs for pregnancy-related care and medical care for newborns.

PP 2014

They quote this as their source: [Forrest, Jacqueline & Renée Samara. (1996). “Impact of Publicly Funded Contraceptive Services on Unintended Pregnancies and Implications for Medicaid Expenditures.” Family Planning Perspectives, 28(4), 188-95.] Which is published by- guess who? Guttmacher- read here !

Guttmacher FP Perspectives

FPP Guttmacher

In fact, International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health’s Publishers are Alan Guttmacher Institute; Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Family Planning International Assistance Division; United States. Agency for International Development!
___________________________________________

In 2009, Guttmacher reported that, “Every dollar invested in helping women avoid pregnancies they did not want to have saves $4.02 in Medicaid expenditures that otherwise would have been needed for pregnancy-related care.” ~ ( SOURCE: Next Steps for America’s Family Planning Program, published by Planned Parenthood’s research arm the Guttmacher Institute, 2009 (read here)

Again, Guttmacher claims, “$4 Saved for Every $1 Invested; Expanding Medicaid Services to More Low-Income Women Would More Than Pay for Itself.”

Guttmacher

In 2006 this was their claim, “EACH $1 INVESTED IN TITLE X FAMILY PLANNING PROGRAM SAVES $3.80.”

But by 2014, Guttmacher was saying this, “Every public dollar invested in helping women avoid pregnancies they did not want to have saves $5.68 in Medicaid expenditures that otherwise would have gone to pregnancy-related care.”

Guttmacher FP 2014

______________________________________________________

According to HHS, “In 2008, every every public dollar spent on contraceptive services yielded an estimated $3.74 in savings that would have been spent on Medicaid costs related to pregnancy care and delivery and to infants in their first year of life.”

But HHS goes on to add that, “Significantly, this figure does not include savings realized from the prevention and treatment of STIs and avoiding and detecting reproductive cancers. These calculations also do not measure the broader health, social or economic benefits of enabling women to time or prepare for their pregnancies.

The HHS Source for this is again – GUTTMACHER !!! – iv Frost, J, Henshaw, SK, Sonfield, A, “Contraceptive Needs and Services: National and State Data, 2008 Update,” Guttmacher Institute, May 2010. A 2012 study by Adam Thomas of the Brookings Institute, “Policy Solutions for Preventing Unplanned Pregnancy,” found that every dollar spent on Medicaid family planning services saved $5.60 in publicly subsidized medical care for pregnant women and a variety of means-tested benefits.

_____________________________________________________

In 1981– the savings was allegedly $2.00….

__________________________________________

The Population Council reports that, “On average, each dollar invested in family planning saves nearly two dollars in expenses related to antenatal, maternal, and newborn health care.”

The largest abortion lobby group in the US, NARAL says, “In fact, every dollar spent on family planning saves an estimated $3.75.”

Another NARAL report says, “For every dollar spent on family planning services for low-income women, states avoid spending three dollars for pregnancy-related and newborn care.”

RH Reality Blog reports that, “Multiple studies show that every dollar spent on family planning saves roughly four dollars in costs incurred without it.” Of course, they quote Guttmacher as the source of these alleged studies!

Even the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association gets their family planning “savings” info from Guttmacher studies.

Guttmacher Study Quoted NFPRHA

Mirrors other attempts to sell this as a cost savings to the tax payers here , here

Pelosi vid ABC

Even Speaker of the House (at the time) Nancy Pelosi repeated this in an interview with ABC where she said, “The family planning services reduce cost…contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.”

This “every dollar spent on family planning saves” mantra is everywhere. But – where are the independent studies to prove this?

Can you imagine the media allowing research whose claims financially benefit pro-life groups to be sourced? No way- they would require independent studies on this…..but when The Guttmacher Institute a research arm for Planned Parenthood makes a claim – the media repeats it over and over again!

I am not disputing or supporting this claim- I am merely asking – where the unbiased research and documentation is and why it is being repeated by in the media without that?

Abortion provider on tax funded Planned Parenthood “they’re leaving poor women behind”

ClaireKeyespicture-1211Long Time Pittsburgh abortion provider Claire Keyes has accused Planned Parenthood who receives MILLIONS in tax dollars of ignoring the poor, “They’ve made a decision to go after the young and the hip and the affluent, and they’re leaving poor women behind,” she told the Wall Street Journal.

Claire Keyes is a writer for the pro-choice blog RH Reality Check, and say that most of her life’s work has been in abortion. She has been the director of Allegheny Reproductive Health Center for more than 25 years, but recently retired. For nearly two decades she has been training abortion counselors; she has presented at both the National Abortion Federation and the National Coalition of Abortion Providers and she co-authored, “How Do You Want Your Abortion”.

Keyes is right !!!!

Planned Parenthood reports that they killed 333,964 unborn children from abortion with our tax dollars in the year 2011 to 2012 according to their most recent report! In addition, according to Planned Parenthood’s “Services” fact sheet, its clinics performed 329,445 abortions in 2010.

The $524 MILLION is a huge jump in government revenue from previous years. In 2008, Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and $363.2 MILLION Dollars on Government Grants ( Tax Dollars) in 2009– that is ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY of taxpayer money !!! Then in 2011 the government gave them $524.4 MILLION which is 1.44 MILLION dollars a day in taxpayer money !!!!

Cecile Richards; Planned Parenthood President

In 2008, Planned Parenthood paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. ( View 2008 990 here ) Richards also received $346,285 in total compensation from Planned Parenthood and $38,476 in total compensation from related groups in the organization’s fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2009, according to the organization’s Form 990 for that year. In a 2010 PPFA 990, Cecile Richards reported earning $319,245 from PPFA and $35,471 from related PP organizations

What you may not know is how much money , in a time of economic depression, Cecile Richards and her crew at Planned Parenthood are making, paid for by hard working American Tax Payers like me and you.

Just how is Planned Parenthood spending YOUR money ???

They are building Ritzy MEGA Centers around the country which are muti-million dollars abortion clinics:

In 2013 After purchasing three parcels of land at 4636 S.

$2 Million Dollars: 2012- Planned Parenthood plans to open its first health center in the Victor Valley by the end of the year on Park Avenue, next to the Coco’s Bakery. The site was built in the ’80s to house Chuck E. Cheese’s and was last used in 2006 as a furniture store.
A Victorville zoning administrator approved the site plan for the $2.2 million project in early May, since the medical office is a permitted use in that area and the project meets all city codes. The site plan calls for minor exterior improvements and parking lot alterations to the existing 10,000-square-foot building.

In June of 2012, a builder informed pro-lifer Terri Palmquist of the construction of the new Planned Parenthood “mega” abortion center planned for Bakersfield, CA— over 10,000 square feet — a few blocks west of Mercy Hospital, across the street from a residential area. The new location is about a block west of the existing Planned Parenthood office, where abortions have apparently never been committed, although abortion referrals have frequently occurred.

Planned Parenthood is building a 13,000+ sq. ft. facility in Virginia Beach (515 Newtown Rd.)

$2.3 Million: 2010- Planned Parenthood is preparing to start a $2.3 million building project to expand its services and client base in Champaign.

Some argue that Planned Parenthood is a “good” organization despite the fact that they were founded by a RACIST KLAN speaker who was so connected with the Eugenics Movement that many of her Planned Parenthood board members were Eugenics members as well. Eugenics is the movement that forcefully sterilized thousands of Blacks in the US and Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger agreed with that ideology.
