Is Planned Parenthood struggling with an identity crisis?

Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood appears to be struggling with an identity crisis of sorts, uncertain whether to remain an abortion vendor or become a health care agency. It took 50 years for Planned Parenthood to again name a doctor as president, and just as with Planned Parenthood’s previous appointment, Alan F. Guttmacher, a specific agenda appears to be behind the decision to appoint as president Dr. Leana Wen. The taxpayer-funded corporation is suffering from a serious image problem due to its numerous scandals, abuses and fraud, including covering up for child sexual predators, and it appears Wen has been assigned the task of creating a new image of an organization whose focus is health care, not abortion.

But Wen is sending confusing messages to media outlets who willingly push the abortion giant’s talking points. The most vivid example comes from Buzzfeed in a recent article with the title, “Planned Parenthood’s New President Wants To Focus On Nonabortion Health Care.” Wen wasn’t pleased.

The article title received pushback from pro-abortion supporters, causing Wen to course correct and admit that actually, Planned Parenthood’s “core mission” is abortion. In a series of tweets, Wen also called on supporters to”double down and fight.”

First, our core mission is providing, protecting and expanding access to abortion and reproductive health care…. Planned Parenthood continues to be a powerful political force across the country.

In the Buzzfeed piece, Wen announced a “listening tour of 20 Planned Parenthood affiliates” to learn how best to “add or expand nonabortion services.” This may be why Buzzfeed jumped to a wrong conclusion — one many Americans have been manipulated into falsely believing as well. Among the “nonabortion services” Wen wants to offer are…

  • Treatment for opioid addiction
  • Treatment for diabetes management
  • Mental health counseling

“Wen’s idea to turn more Planned Parenthood affiliates into one-stop shops where you can come in for birth control, STI tests, or an abortion, and meet clinic workers prepared to diagnose and treat a range of other problems unrelated to reproduction, from diet to depression to addiction,” Buzzfeed’s Ema O’Connor writes.

Diet? Depression? Addiction?

Wen’s plans, according to Buzzfeed, “could involve in-house mental health counselors, which a few clinics already have, and will likely include increased training for Planned Parenthood staff on how to provide “trauma-informed care.” (But surely nothing about post-abortion trauma….)

Planned Parenthood’s attempt to reinvent itself as a “health care” provider instead of an abortion vendor has been tried before. It failed. That “reinvention plan” was introduced by former president Pamela J. Maraldo, who was a nurse in the 1990’s. According to a Planned Parenthood staffer, the plan was “economy-driven.” Maraldo was eventually pushed out of Planned Parenthood after board members determined that her plan hardly mentioned abortion — and Wen has no intentions of making the same mistake.

Wen’s proposals come at a time when Planned Parenthood’s existing health services such as pap tests, cancer screening, and contraceptive services as well as patients and facilities are plummeting… while abortions,  CEO salaries, and excess revenue (profit) climbs. Also increasing are the tax dollars the abortion corporation receives in its political money laundering scheme (demonstrated in the video below) in which the corporation uses its influence to elect pro-abortion politicians, mostly Democrats, who then turn around and make certain that Planned Parenthood continues to receive half a billion dollars annually.

The sudden resignation of “political organizer and chief” Cecile Richards and other high ranking leaders in the organization might be causing ripples. Buzzfeed notes, “[S]trategists and advocates on both sides of the aisle see her presidency as a pointed and purposeful departure from Richards, and one that sends a clear message…. Democratic strategists are concerned that Wen’s shift to focusing on health care over politics is a sign Planned Parenthood is backing away from the fight.”

Democratic campaign consultant Hank Sheinkopf called it “fatigue”:

It’s a symbol of fatigue, the battle has been a tough one and they’re tired. If you publicly project that you’re no longer an advocate but a provider of medical services, the presumption is the bad guys will no longer beat you up because you’re no longer poking a stick in their eyes all the time.

Politicians are not the only ones showing concern. Live Action News recently documented how vocal and very dissatisfied staffers readily exposed internal accusations of intimidation, low wages, discrimination, and a toxic working environment at Planned Parenthood. Perhaps this is why Wen suggested to Buzzfeed that she “wants to be able to practice at Planned Parenthood clinics” and may “perform blood tests and screenings for Planned Parenthood patients herself.”

Wen, who once advocated transparency among physicians, scrubbed her “Who’s My Doctor?” website shortly after being appointed head of the abortion corporation. But, not to fear, because everyone (except Planned Parenthood staffers and former employees) know how “trustworthy” Planned Parenthood is, right?

Wen is treading water, forced to put forward a public image of Planned Parenthood as a health care agency, all while internally the organization seems to be attempting an image makeover — all while the true agenda of Planned Parenthood continues to be abortion.

While on one hand, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland just erected a billboard that read, “I had an abortion and I’m not apologizing,” on the other hand, the mother ship seems to be attempting to refresh its image as a legitimate, diverse health care provider. And yet, Planned Parenthood’s 2019 plan clearly lays out a focused agenda to “expand abortion.”

Planned Parenthood, which ends the lives of nearly 900 preborn babies in the womb every day with abortion, is never going to be viewed as a health care agency. As Wen morphs from prestigious physician into the corporation’s “propagandist-in-chief,” she may want to heed a well-known passage of scripture, which reads, “A double minded man [or organization, for that matter] is unstable in all his ways.”

Planned Parenthood’s three-part plan for 2019: Abortion, abortion, abortion

Posted in Planned Parenthood plan, self-managed abortion with tags , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2018 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood has released its plan for 2019, and despite declining clients and health services, the plan reveals the organization’s continued obsession with abortion. Planned Parenthood masquerades as a health care organization, and as its abortion market share steadily increased (due in part to half a billion dollars they receive from taxpayers annually), Planned Parenthood’s profits skyrocketed. In 2018, Planned Parenthood set out to protect those gains by vowing to spend millions to elect pro-abortion lawmakers and hire a new director to push for activist judges on the court.

“There’s no way to sugarcoat it,” the document begins. “With Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, we are likely to see the further erosion of Roe v. Wade in the very near future.”

The “multi-million dollar” plan was announced by the group’s political advocacy arm, and disbursed to the media days after Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. It lays out how Planned Parenthood will “work to ensure there is still access to abortion across the country, even if the national protections afforded by Roe v. Wade disappear.”

Planned Parenthood is especially concerned how this alleged erosion will affect minorities they claim will not have access to abortion. Live Action News has documented time and again that historically, minority and impoverished groups, which have a disproportionately high rate of abortion, have consistently been targets of the population control movement.

The organization’s current focus is similar to one previously outlined by TARA Health Foundation’s “US Reproductive Health Investment Case” report. The plan committed to “increasing access for people with low incomes” even “where abortion… becomes inaccessible or is banned completely.” Live Action News previously detailed the abortion industry’s push of dangerous home-use and self-managed abortions, despite significant risks to women.

According to a press release:

This past June, Planned Parenthood convened staff members from 19 states and Washington, D.C. to strategically plan for an expansion of abortion access in key states, address current inequities in access, and prepare for a legal environment that fails to protect abortion access nationally…Planned Parenthood is uniquely positioned to do this work.

The document makes no reference to incoming president Leana Wen, who once advocated for transparency among medical professionals. After accepting the position at the abortion corporation, her website on transparency disappeared.

Expand abortion using a Regional Access Network

According to the plan, “Planned Parenthood will expand services in states where abortion is likely to remain legal… and invest in technology… to help people living in hostile states… We’ll do this through investing in a Regional Access Network, expanding where we offer telemedicine, and leveraging technology and innovation to help connect people to services.”

The document does not state what that network is; however, it could include abortion collaborators such as TARA Health Foundation, and Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate” and research arm, the Guttmacher Institute. TARA Health recently vowed to invest $20 million in California’s failed attempt to force public universities to promote the abortion pill, despite reported deaths and hospitalizations from the dangerous regimen.

The abortion chain’s plans include:

  • A Regional Access Network anywhere abortion either becomes inaccessible or is banned completely
  • Facilitate telehealth care and transportation for patients facing obstacles to abortion
  • Opening new abortion facilities
  • Expanding medication abortion services
  • Expanding telemedicine services to increase abortion access for clients in remote communities

Legislative efforts to expand tax funded abortion

The document states that the abortion organization is planning to double down on its push for abortion legislation, and fight all abortion restrictions. The release claims, “Planned Parenthood Action Fund and local Planned Parenthood advocacy organizations are already well-positioned to not just defeat hostile legislation, but also push forward proactive legislation that will expand access….”

The plan will target 10 states, including:

● Illinois, where Planned Parenthood is pushing public funding of abortion and ways the state can “codify the right to abortion in state law”

● Maine, where Planned Parenthood is “moving to ensure women insured through public programs can have… abortion”

● Rhode Island. where Planned Parenthood “will work in the 2019 legislative session to codify the right to…abortion in state law”

● Oregon, where Planned Parenthood “is implementing the Reproductive Health Equity Act to guarantees no-cost coverage for… abortion”

● Hawaii, where Planned Parenthood “is working to expand access to…abortion by advancing comprehensive coverage of… abortion”

● Washington, where Planned Parenthood “is focusing on passing the Reproductive Health Equity Access bill” to remove barriers to abortion

Use Hollywood and media to “destigmatize abortion”

It is no secret that Planned Parenthood, with its numerous abuses, is protected by the media and Hollywood. And, despite claims that Hollywood and the media side with survivors of sexual abuse in the #MeToo movement, they lend a hand in protecting sexual predators who victimize young girls and take them to Planned Parenthood to cover those horrific crimes.

Reporters and journalists who cover for the abortion corporation are frequently given awards — like the Maggie Awardnamed after Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder and a known eugenicist who admitted to meeting with the Ku Klux Klan.

The plan vows to:

  • Work with “content creators” on portraying abortion positively in film and television
  • Create resources to encourage, “accurate, non-judgmental conversations about abortion…”
  • Use technology to “help people understand the reality of safe, legal abortion and what patients experience when having an abortion”

It is doubtful these depictions will accurately describe abortion.

The 2019 plan is really no new revelation. It is simply a reboot of previous strategies laid out since the 1970’s, when Planned Parenthood first began committing abortions.
