The latest in a series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s complicity in covering child sexual abuse features an attorney who represented actual victims of the abortion corporation’s “don’t ask/don’t tell” policies on reporting sexual abuse. The interview, conducted by Live Action, comes at a time when society has demanded that organizations who are complicit in covering sexual abuse be held to account. This call has been loud in the media, politics, Hollywood, and sports. The one place this has been glossed over and nearly ignored has been with regard to Planned Parenthood’s complicity.

The “Prosecution” video in Live Action’s multi-part series, Aiding Abusers, opens with a statement by Steven Spielberg addressing the sexual abuse scandal in Hollywood that catapulted the #MeToo movement: “The other thing we have to think about is this: Hollywood and celebrity gets a lot of recognition. You can’t just think of this as a Hollywood problem. And we can’t forget the people that can’t afford attorneys. We can’t forget those people that are afraid to come out to say what happened to them because they have nobody to represent them or to stand up for them. I am more concerned about that group than I am about the celebrities that are being exposed and immediately get a huge amount of attention…. [T]hese kind of crimes of sexual assault are happening daily.”

What the Hollywood producer said is especially true when it comes to Planned Parenthood’s victims of abuse cover-up. This multi-million dollar tax funded organization has influence in very powerful circles like the media, Hollywood, and political power structures, outed for covering abuse in the past.

No one knows this more than Ohio litigator Brian Hurley, Esq., whose track record of going after those complicit in covering up sexual abuse is stellar. Hurley dared to face off against Planned Parenthood to defend the young victims of abuse covered-up by this powerful organization. He also once brought charges against the Catholic Church for its role in covering up the sexual abuse of young boys, and later brought two civil cases against Planned Parenthood for covering up the rape of teenage girls.

“I’m a devout Catholic, and I believe the Catholic Church had to be taken to task for what it did and didn’t do with respect to the abuse of boys, mostly boys,” Hurley told Live Action News. “And I was proud as being part of a prosecuting attorney’s office that we brought claims – charges – against the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for its conduct. And I think it gave me credibility.”

But Hurley noted nothing would prepare him for what would take place when he agreed to represent two victims of Planned Parenthood’s sexual abuse cover-up. Hurley said that Planned Parenthood, with its half a billion in tax dollars annually, has a litany of attorneys in its arsenal, which it uses against anyone who dares to challenge the organization in court, even when the case is filed to get justice for victims of rape or sexual assault.

“I will tell you I grossly underestimated what I was getting involved in. I’d been involved in very complex litigation for many years as lead counsel and I thought that would prepare me for litigating against Planned Parenthood. And I was wrong,” Hurley said, adding:

Planned Parenthood, when it is sued, hires the best lawyers in the United States. Planned Parenthood will fund the defense of litigation in a matter that, from what I could tell in our cases, it was limitless…. In both of our cases, Planned Parenthood’s lawyers fought every single issue, every aspect of discovery. Every aspect of the case was litigated. Much more so, in fact, than I had seen in any of the other cases I had been involved in my 35 years. Which, I think, from my perspective — and this is argued throughout our pleadings — was an attempt to make it prohibitively expensive for us to continue.

The majority of the plaintiffs in these cases are very poor people, are people from backgrounds where they don’t have much money. And it’s hard to find lawyers who are willing to spend six years litigating against an organization that is going to require you to devote thousands of hours to litigate those claims. And I think that is something that Planned Parenthood and its lawyers are very good at.

The first case involved a 14-year-old girl who went to Planned Parenthood for an abortion after being impregnated by her 21-year-old soccer coach. According to Hurley’s interview with Live Action News, when the adult predator, John Haller, found out that his minor victim, Chelsea, was pregnant, he understood that “he was going to be in serious trouble if that… was ever disclosed.” So, Haller convinced the teen, in Hurley’s words, to “have an abortion, and told her that that was the only way they could stay together, that he loved her and if she had the abortion they would stay together — and, she thought, would get married.”

But rather than investigate or report suspicion of abuse, Planned Parenthood asked few questions and simply took the word of Haller over the phone that he was the victim’s parent, after Haller instructed the girl to give his number to Planned Parenthood. Then, according to court documents, after the abortion, the abuser resumed having sex with the teen. As a result of a subsequent report made by a teacher, Haller was later found guilty of seven counts of sexual battery.

Hurley told Live Action News that the victim’s parents sued Planned Parenthood on several claims, that included a failure to report suspected abuse and a failure to obtain the consent of her parents before the abortion or even notify them. Planned Parenthood settled the case out of court.

The second case involved another teen who had been sexually abused by her father since she was 13. When she became pregnant at age 16, the abuser forced her to have an abortion at Planned Parenthood.

The victim, Denise Fairbanks, told Planned Parenthood’s staff that her father was raping her, but instead of reporting the abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood sent Denise home with the abuser where he continued to assault her for another year and a half. The abuser was stopped only after Denise spoke to her coach — and the coach, not Planned Parenthood, went to law enforcement.

According to Hurley, who also represented Denise in her lawsuit, when the victim was taken to Planned Parenthood…

The Planned Parenthood employee said to her something to the effect, “If you’re going to sleep around you need to get on birth control.”

And Denise was stunned, and she took that as really an insult, that she was being called a whore. And, so, what Denise… said in response was, “This was not supposed to happen, I was forced to do things I didn’t want to do.”

Of Planned Parenthood’s failure to report the sexual abuse being inflicted on this young victim, Hurley told Live Action, “It was clear to me that they had a duty to report suspected abuse. I think known abuse, but, at least suspected abuse. They didn’t. And her father continued to rape her for another year.”

Hurley told Live Action News, “Had they reported Denise’s abuse immediately, the abuse would have stopped…. Unfortunately, it was a year later.”

Hurley also told Live Action News he believes the media has given Planned Parenthood a pass and that, as a result, more sexual abuse will be covered up:

While they’re correct in terms of the way they have handled and exposed or or attempted to expose, the abuse that took place in the Catholic Church up in Michigan State, and now even in the #MeToo movement, I think that’s great. What I find to be hypocritical is the media’s refusal to do a serious investigation of what occurs at Planned Parenthood.

There’s been enough information provided to the press, with Lila Rose for example, when she did her exposés, both with respect to the attempts in those situations, based upon the video I saw, of people at Planned Parenthood coaching girls not to say certain things so they wouldn’t have to report abuse. Also, to the videos that talked about the sex trafficking and the prostitution. Clearly, the mainstream media has decided that they don’t want to expose or do an investigation… to find out what is actually going on at Planned Parenthood.

Hurley added, “[I]f I, as a devout Catholic, would participate in the prosecution of the Catholic Church for what it’s role was in failure to report abuse, then I have no problems trying to expose what Planned Parenthood does and doesn’t do.”

But, as Live Action News has previously documented, Planned Parenthood regularly rewards journalists for their complicity of silence on failing to accurately report their abuses, which include Medicaid fraudprivacy breaches, and a failure to report sexual abuse among others.

The evidence against Planned Parenthood is mounting.

Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose commented, “Without over half a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, it would be much harder for Planned Parenthood to litigate these abuse cases for years until they wore victims down, never formally admitting their cover up of these young girls’ rape. When Planned Parenthood gets taken to court, it’s the taxpayers who are paying for Planned Parenthood’s defense and helping to put these children through years of litigation and prolonging their agony.”

In the investigative report entitled, “Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sexual abuse,” (which can be read here) evidence of Planned Parenthood’s history and corporate culture of failing to report incidents to authorities include:

  1. Court cases including testimonies of victims experiencing horrific abuse
  2. State health department records
  3. Testimonies from former Planned Parenthood workers
  4. Two Live Action Undercover investigations
  5. Loyola University study on sex trafficking

Live Action’s companion video docuseries includes tragic details of criminal and civil cases (many previously in the public record thanks in part to pro-life groups such as Life Dynamics) in which victims were returned to their abusers to be further assaulted. It also contains testimony from former Planned Parenthood staffers, who repeatedly witnessed the organization’s systematic and troubling disregard of mandatory reporting laws. The abortion giant currently receives $60 million from the federal Title X family planning program and hundreds of millions of dollars from Medicaid and other state and federal government money. In 2015, 474 of Planned Parenthood’s nearly 650 facilities were Title X recipients, according to a Guttmacher Institute report. In total, Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion dollars annually in federal and state tax dollars.

Under Title X, recipients are required to follow state and federal reporting laws on reporting sexual abuse.

Pro-lifers take part in Ice Bucket Challenge to support unborn babies

Posted in Fetal Stem Cell, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2014 by saynsumthn

After discovering that the ALS Association which has raised millions in their popular Ice Bucket challenge, gives money to an organization which uses stem cells that originated from electively aborted fetuses, pro-lifers have created their version of the Ice Bucket challenge to save unborn babies:

ALS Neals fetal Tissue

A statement on the ALS Consortium website states, “Previous research has shown that on autopsy, ALS patients are found to have increased levels of the amino acid glutamate accumulated in the brain and spinal cord. This increase is thought to be caused by a decrease in the glutamate transporter which normally “cleans up” glutamate from the cells. Human spinal cord-derived neural stem cells (HSSC) are known to express amino acid transporters and it is hoped that this action will reduce the toxicity of accumulated glutamate and benefit ALS patients. A second hypothesized benefit of HSSC is their ability to secrete neurotrophic support factors. Neurotrophic factors support the health of nerves.

These stem cells have been engineered from the spinal cord of a single fetus electively aborted after eight weeks of gestation. The tissue was obtained with the mother’s consent. The cells are transplanted into the ALS subject’s spinal cord after laminectomy, an operation that removes bone surrounding the spine. After the spinal cord is exposed, a device manufactured for this purpose will be mounted onto the subject and will hold a syringe filled with the cells. The syringe will have a needle attached and the needle will enter the spinal cord at 5-10 locations injecting the cells. The device will minimize trauma to the spinal cord caused by the needle by making the punctures precise and steady, and by injecting the material at a slow and steady speed.”

According to an article in Patheos ALSA.org states:

“Adult stem cell research is important and should be done alongside embryonic stem cell research as both will provide valuable insights. Only through exploration of all types of stem cell research will scientists find the most efficient and effective ways to treat diseases.”

Carrie Munk, a representative for the ALS Association, confirmed to TheBlaze that the organization is currently funding one study that involves embryonic stem cells. In a subsequent statement, the organization said that it is committed to “leaving no stone unturned in the quest to discover effective treatments and a cure for Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Pro-lifers object to the use of aborted children and are now posting videos which expose the ALS connection to abortion as well as raising support for pro-life causes:

In this video, a Catholic Priest calls out ALS and asks others to challenge ALS to stop funding the fetal stem cell research.

A message posted under this YouTube vid below reads, “My daughter Rachel was nominated for the Ice Bucket Challenge. ~~ Because ALS is supportive of embryonic stem cell research, we decided that donating to The John Paul II Medical Research Institute was a much better alternative! ( http://www.jp2mri.org ) They are 100% Pro-life ! Please consider donating to JP2MRI

According to Mark Harrington of the pro-life group, Created Equal which uses abortion victim images to educate the public about abortion, David Kopechek, a former pro-life student leader,is trying to raise awareness for the thousands of unborn that are killed every day, and has uploaded a vid to Facebook.

Planned Parenthood fundraiser features “Queer Nuns”

Planned Parenthood’s Bar Nun Bingo fundraiser makes fun of Nuns:

_______________________________________________________

So says Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights who made this comment on Planned Parenthood’s religious bigotry:

Tomorrow night in Seattle, Planned Parenthood will stage “Bar Nun Bingo” at Poquitos in the Capitol Hill neighborhood; two days later, it will hold another “Bar Nun Bingo,” this time at the downtown Pike Brewing Company. Both fund-raising events will bash nuns, and will be led by the demonstrably anti-Catholic gay group, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Pictures of previous “Bar Nun Bingo” affairs show how sick it is.

Planned Parenthood has a long history of Catholic bashing. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, was both a racist and an anti-Catholic. In 1987, it trashed Mother Teresa, calling her an “old and withered person, who doesn’t look the least like a woman.” In 1994, it mocked the Eucharist at the Monmouth County Fair in New Jersey. In 1995, it blamed New York Archbishop John Cardinal O’Connor for the killing of an abortion doctor in Brookline, Massachusetts. In 1998, its opposition to school vouchers led it to brand the Catholic Church an “extremist” group on Long Island.

According to Planned Parenthood Bar Nun Bingo will feature fantastic prizes, yummy food and drink, and delightful special guests from The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence®, The Abbey of St. Joan, a Capitol Hill organization that educates the public on safer sex, queer rights, and other critical community issues.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence®, describes themselves as ” a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since our first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty and we use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.”

God Bless Planned Parenthood? Pro-life and pro-abortion clash in front of abortion giant

According to the Gazette, the final day of the pro-life prayer event, “40 Days for Life”, in Colorado Springs ended with a Catholic Mass in front of Planned Parenthood – accompanied by honking horns and loud chants from about a dozen protesters.

On one side, about 40 pro-life supporters, led by Colorado Springs Bishop Michael Sheridan. Supporters sang, prayed and kneeled. Some held signs calling for an end to abortion.

The pro-aborts lined the streets with their ridiculous signs and brought their kids to help promote their cause.

Imagine- using kids to promote child killing?

I thought this was the most disturbing photo – a baby with a “Pro-choice” sign- pretty ironic don’t you think?

And this one is also a joke- as women are being killed today in legal abortion clinics and the child in the womb is never “SAFE” during an abortion:

And as always the attack on the Bible:

Not a Health Plan

The pro-aborts posted the video above and described it this way, “This video was taken Saturday, April 12, 2014 when the local bishop, Sheridan and priest, Carmody showed up to hold a mass of hate against women’s health.

Teabaggers in the Colorado House have introduced House Bill 1133 which defines a fetus as a “unborn human being” at the moment of fertilization and forbids doctors from prescribing any medication or performing any procedure that could result in the “termination of the life of an unborn human being.”

In the video, a pro-choice woman tells the pro-lifers she has been out there protesting their “intrusion” on women’s lives. The pro-life protester responds, “What intrusion, we just give out information?

That’s exactly the point- the purveyors of “choice” only support one choice- Kill that baby!

Bill Gates reducing the inequity in the world thru abortion and eugenics is kind of a religious belief

Posted in Bill Gates with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2014 by saynsumthn

Bill_Gates_in_WEF_,2007 In an interview with Rolling Stone, abortion financier Bill Gates said:

The moral systems of religion, I think, are super important. We’ve raised our kids in a religious way; they’ve gone to the Catholic church that Melinda goes to and I participate in. I’ve been very lucky, and therefore I owe it to try and reduce the inequity in the world. And that’s kind of a religious belief. I mean, it’s at least a moral belief,” Gates said.

Asked, Do you believe in God? Gates says it makes sense to believe in God, but doesn’t see how that belief would affect your decisions , “I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths. Before we really began to understand disease and the weather and things like that, we sought false explanations for them. Now science has filled in some of the realm – not all – that religion used to fill. But the mystery and the beauty of the world is overwhelmingly amazing, and there’s no scientific explanation of how it came about. To say that it was generated by random numbers, that does seem, you know, sort of an uncharitable view [laughs]. I think it makes sense to believe in God, but exactly what decision in your life you make differently because of it, I don’t know.”

Regarding ObamaCare, Gates replied, “The idea that there aren’t trade-offs is an outrageous thing. Most countries know that there are trade-offs, but here, we manage to have the notion that there aren’t any. So that’s unfortunate, to not have people think, “Hey, there are finite resources here.”

Bill Gates / Admits dad worked for Planned Parenthood

Bill Gates and Planned Parenthood:

GATES: When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.
My mom was on the United Way group that decides how to allocate the money and looks at all the different charities and makes the very hard decisions about where that pool of funds is going to go. So I always knew there was something about really educating people and giving them choices in terms of family size.

Pro-choicer afraid of Holy Water, charge Catholic grandma with misdemeanor harassment

Posted in Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , on January 23, 2013 by saynsumthn

GrandaArrestedHolyWater

A pro-life elderly woman has been arrested for sprinkling Holy Water on a public sidewalk outside the local abortion business in Huntsville, Alabama.

The abortion business in question has faced numerous problems in the past.

In November 2006, state officials found the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville violated 10 different health codes.

UPDATE HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Two more misdemeanor harassment warrants have been issued against pro-life demonstrators in Huntsville.

Katie Norlin obtained a warrant through the city magistrate’s office Tuesday against Joyce Fecteau for allegedly spraying Norlin and several other pro-choice advocates with liquid from a squirt bottle on Dec. 22. Another pro-choice activist, Anathalee Sandlin, swore out a warrant Friday against Charles Patrick Elms Jr. for allegedly “chest bumping” her into a moving vehicle on Oct. 24.

Both incidents happened outside Huntsville’s only licensed abortion clinic, Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives on Madison Street.
Fecteau, 70, was arrested Jan. 9 on a harassment warrant taken out by another member of the pro-choice group for the spraying incident, which was captured on video. Her trial is scheduled for Feb. 21 in municipal court.

Huntsville police have not served the warrant on Elms, who lives out of state.

Fecteau told The Times last week the squirt bottle held holy water blessed by a priest. She said she sprayed it because a pro-choice demonstrator walked past her while burning a “noxious material” that she’d been warned by doctors not to inhale.
