What happens when a state or a judge for that matter orders the bodies of young children to be forever altered under the guise of medicine? Well, I think we already know because history is a great teacher. After all, under eugenics programs targeted at poor whites and a majority of minorities we witnessed the abuse of state eugenics courts who ordered the surgical sterilization of men, women and children (too young to consent) in the name of public health. And, while some were complicit in this monstrous part of our history, many others said and did nothing to stop it. Today, the James Younger case out of Texas parallels this tragic time in history and reveals how the state can potentially yank children from a parent and pump them full of hormones to force them to become another gender.

Past is reflection of the Present:

“Unnamed patient records from the 1920s document hundreds of individuals in their late teens and early 20s sterilized for…feeblemindedness, or mental deficiency. A notable percentage of these young patients were typed as masturbators or incest perpetrators if male and as promiscuous—even nymphomaniacal—or having borne a child out of wedlock if female,” noted a report on coercive sterilizations, ironically titled, Sterilized in the Name of Public Health.

This targeting of vulnerable children continued for years. Wallace Kuralt who influenced the opening of a Planned Parenthood facility in North Carolina, headed a coercive eugenic sterilization program in the state when he served as Mecklenburg County’s welfare director from 1945 to 1972. Eugenics has been a cornerstone of Planned Parenthood’s history, and its ugly roots continue to be revealed. According to a report by the Charlotte Observer:

Kuralt retired almost 40 years ago and died in 1994. His key aides also have died, and memories have faded of the decisions that changed hundreds of lives. Some women came forward willingly. Some patients were little more than children who didn’t understand what was to take place. Today, it is impossible to tease out the exact mix of good intentions and overzealous execution, prejudice and paternalism that let such a crusade run unchecked.

A coercive program put in place by the German Nazi Party also targeted children-unable to consent.

In the 1970’s, a lawsuit was filed to petition federal agencies to draw up guidelines which would prevent the economic coercion of poor women seeking medical care under Medicaid and other programs. A 1973 report by the Aiken Standard report on the case states that,  “The action amends a suit seeking to prevent the forced sterilizations of minors and mental incompetents, stemming from three minors, two of whom were allegedly sterilized without their consent and one who received experimental birth control shots in Alabama.

In referring to the aforementioned Mecklenburg County case, the Charlotte Observer also discussed the issue of “consent,” writing, “Records show patients signed consent for 317 of the 430 sterilizations brought by the Welfare Department. Those without consent were often the youngest patients. All told, the department got sterilization orders for 54 children 16 and younger. The youngest was a 10-year-old girl with a mental age of 4 who had begun menstruating the year before. The parents, who signed the consent for surgery, “appear to give her good supervision but she frequently eludes her parents and wanders away,” the summary says.”

What about today?

On Thursday, October 24, 2019 a judge will make the final determination on whether the mother of a young seven year-old boy, James Younger, can begin the process of chemically altering his gender to “transition” him into being a girl. You heard correctly- 7 years-old – a child that can hardly consent nor understand the consequences that could change his life and his body forever. The case has garnered a ton of attention over the last year but exploded on social media this week after the boy’s father, Jeff Younger, lost his battle in court to protect his son from this experimental procedure.

According to the Daily Caller, “Jeff Younger said his son is happy being a boy and does not desire to be a girl, according to The Texan. James Younger’s pediatrician mother, Anne Georgulas, as well as counselors and therapists who testified on her behalf, told the court that the 7-year-old is transgender and had expressed to each of them that he wished he were a girl.”

LifeSite News, has been following the case and reported that, “Dr. Georgulas [the boy’s mother] has been telling James he’s a girl since he was three. She enrolled him in kindergarten as a girl named “Luna.” He uses the girls’ restroom and all of this classmates believe he is a girl. Dr. Georgulas wants to subject James to puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones as well as legally force his father to treat him as a girl. ”

“Multiple character witnesses for Mr. Younger testified that James presents as a boy when he is with his father and that they have never seen reason to believe James wants to be a girl,” LifeSite News also reported.

On Monday, a consensus of 11 of the 12 jurors in a Dallas court ruled against granting Younger [the father] sole managing conservatorship over James and his twin brother Jude, reported the Daily Wire, adding:

According to the LifeSiteNews, Georgulas has been granted authority to move forward with puberty blockers, which can cause chemical castration, and, potentially, hormones, if she so chooses.

The case is raising questions about the ability for young children to “consent” to permanent and often surgical changes to their bodies.

History has shown us that courts and the medical community have made troubling decisions for others in the past. It wasn’t that long ago when the State was forcefully sterilizing men, women and children under eugenics programs that continue to haunt society to this day. In many cases, children who were forcefully castrated or sterilized with “permission” of their parents have since decried the ghoulish experiments.

 

In the summer of 1923, 16 year-old Carrie Buck was raped and became pregnant. She was unmarried and the daughter of an inmate at the Lynchburg Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded. After her foster parents dubbed her she  “peculiar” since birth, Carrie was classified as “feebleminded.” According to Facinghistory.org:

On March 28, 1924, Carrie Buck gave birth to a daughter, whom she named Vivian. A few months later, Carrie was admitted to the Lynchburg Colony. Not long after her arrival, Virginia passed a law allowing involuntary sterilization of those labeled as “feebleminded.” Officials at the Lynchburg Colony decided to sterilize Carrie Buck under the new law with the approval of Albert Priddy, the superintendent of the colony. But first, he and his colleagues arranged for her to appeal the decision in the Virginia courts. Although the appeal was in her name, Carrie Buck had no voice in the process. Priddy and other eugenicists were in charge. They hired an attorney for her as well as one for themselves. The two lawyers were in constant contact with one another and with Priddy before and during trial proceedings even though such collaborations are unethical.

The case, later known as Buck v. Bell, was first heard in the Circuit Court for Amherst County on November 18, 1924.

At the trial Aubrey Strode, the lawyer for Priddy and the Lynchburg Colony, offered “scientific evidence” that Carrie Buck ought to be sterilized. The evidence came from the Eugenics Record Office and was prepared by Harry Laughlin.

Laughlin, who never met the young girl, was published by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in her Birth Control Review. He also signed the Citizen’s Committee on Planned Parenthood and in 1936, according to researcher Paul A. Lombardo, “Laughlin received an honorary degree from the Nazi-controlled University of Heidelberg as “a pioneer in the science of race cleansing.”

 

Laughlin’s “evidence” claimed that Carrie came, “from a shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of people…”

After watching her seven-month-old daughter for a short time, a nurse decided that the baby was “not quite normal.” Based on this testimony, the judge decided that Carrie’s mother, Carrie herself, and her infant daughter were all “socially inadequate.”

Irving Whitehead, Buck’s lawyer, did little on her behalf. He called no witnesses to dispute Laughlin or other “experts” who favored sterilization. Not surprisingly, a judge upheld the decision to sterilize Carrie Buck. Whitehead promptly filed an appeal on her behalf in the Virginia Court of Appeals. It was just eight pages long, compared with the 44-page document the colony’s lawyers prepared. In November 1925, the appeals court also ruled against Buck.

In April of 1927, the case reached the U.S. Supreme Court. By then, Albert Priddy was dead. The new superintendent of the Lynchburg Colony was his former assistant, a Dr. Bell. So the case that began as Buck v. Priddy went to the Supreme Court as Buck v. Bell. The justices saw only the records from the original trial and the appeals court. Based solely on what they read in the court transcripts, they voted 8-1 to uphold the sterilization of Carrie Buck.

Oliver Wendall Holmes

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. who delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court, stated in part, “We have seen more than once that the public welfare may call upon the best citizens for their lives. It would be strange if it could not call upon those who already sap the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices, often not felt to be such by those concerned, in order to prevent our being swamped with incompetence. It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. . . . Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Carrie Buck was sterilized in October 1927.

In 1928, Virginia officials also sterilized Carrie Buck’s sister. She was told that the operation was to remove her appendix. Only in 1980 did she learn why she was never able to have a child. “I broke down and cried,” she said. “My husband and me wanted children desperately. We were crazy about them. I never knew what they’d done to me.”

The ruling encouraged other states to enact sterilization laws. By 1930, 24 states had passed similar measures and about 60,000 people were sterilized under these statutes. Virginia alone sterilized more than 7,500 people between the Supreme Court ruling in 1927 and 1972 when the law was finally replaced.

As recent as the 1960’s state decisions which forever altered children reached deep into the heart of North Carolina and impacted a young Black teen by the name of Elaine Riddick.

Riddick’s tragic story also included a horrific rape as a young girl where she became pregnant.

NC state social worker Sue L. Casebolt discovered her pregnancy and referred Elaine’s case to the state’s Eugenics Board. One of the prominent supporters of the NC eugenics program was Clarence Gamble, a director of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League, which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood. Casebolt had been installed as the Executive Secretary of the North Carolina Eugenics Board in 1961 and was on the board in 1968 when it approved the sterilization of Riddick.

According to ABC News, “Riddick’s illiterate grandmother, was told that they were doing a “procedure” that was necessary to help the young girl and signed the sterilization papers with an “X”. The state authorized and paid for the procedure, and without her consent or even her knowledge, Riddick was sterilized shortly after giving birth. She was 14 years old.”

In an interview in the documentary film on eugenics, Maafa21, Riddick stated:

“I asked the State of North Carolina why they did this to me…They sterilized kids, my understanding…-as young as eight years of age. I don’t know what an eight year-old can do that could cause them to do this to them? The only reason I can give myself is that [it’s] because they’re Black.”

According to Maafa21:

At a board meeting held three weeks later, she stated that she intended to keep a file on every child whose name reached her desk so that they could be picked up as soon as they reached childbearing age.

“I did not find out that they had sterilized me until I was nineteen years old,” Riddick states in the documentary film on eugenics, Maafa21.

“They cut me open like I was a hog,” Riddick emotionally told lawmakers in a hearing on reparations for eugenics victims.

Lillie Ann Buelin was also a victim of the terrible NC Eugenics Program, she told DigTriad.com that welfare workers told her that if she didn’t go to school they would operate on her and have her sterilized.  She says they also tested her and labeled her retarded.

“I was just 13 years old,” she emphasized.

In 2005, NBC News reported how, “Government-funded researchers tested AIDS drugs on hundreds of foster children over the past two decades, often without providing them a basic protection afforded in federal law and required by some states, an Associated Press review has found.”

The research funded by the National Institutes of Health spanned the country. It was most widespread in the 1990s as foster care agencies sought treatments for their HIV-infected children that weren’t yet available in the marketplace.

The practice ensured that foster children — mostly poor or minority — received care from world-class researchers at government expense, slowing their rate of death and extending their lives. But it also exposed a vulnerable population to the risks of medical research and drugs that were known to have serious side effects in adults and for which the safety for children was unknown.

According to a report from the Catholic News Agency (CNA), “Pediatric endocrinologists are warning that despite a lack of medical tests to determine its safety, U.S. doctors are increasingly injecting children who have gender dysphoria with a powerful hormonal suppressant normally used to treat prostate cancer.” And, a recent NBC News report highlighted a study that, “found that transgender women, who are assigned the male sex at birth, were twice as likely as cisgender men or women to have the blood clot condition venous thromboembolism. Transgender women on hormone therapy were also found to be 80 to 90 percent more likely to have stroke or a heart attack than cisgender women.”

A review of several studies, by the BMJ, concluded, that “There are significant problems with how the evidence for Gender-affirming cross-sex hormone has been collected and analysed that prevents definitive conclusions to be drawn…The development of these interventions should, therefore, occur in the context of research, and treatments for under 18 gender dysphoric children and adolescents remain largely experimental. There are a large number of unanswered questions that include the age at start, reversibility; adverse events, long term effects on mental health, quality of life, bone mineral density, osteoporosis in later life and cognition…”

On Thursday, Daily Wire writer Matt Walsh tweeted, “And yes puberty blockers are chemical castration. It’s the same drug they use to chemically castrate sex offenders. Yes this is shocking and hard to believe but it’s also true. This is the world we live in now. Wake up and start paying attention.”

Public outrage over the ruling in the Jeff Younger case prompted Texas Governor Greg Abbott to tweet on Wednesday that, “FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.” But, according to the Washington Examiner, “There are no laws currently preventing a legal guardian from giving a minor puberty blockers or hormones.”

It also prompted Texas Representative Rep. Chip Roy to draft a letter to to the US Attorney General over his concern for the “lack of research studying the long-term impacts of the experimental use of medical treatments for so called gender dysphoria on young children, including hormones on children as young as 8 and double mastectomies on girls as young as 13…”

 

 

Rep. Roy then tweeted, “A 7-year-old shouldn’t be subjected to barbaric medical procedures because of an irresponsible adult.”

That sentiment was repeated by Washington Examiner columnist Brad Polumbo who wrote, “A 7-year-old boy cannot be transgender. At least, not with anywhere near the certainty necessary to justify life-altering, potentially irreversible physical changes such as hormone therapy or puberty blockers.”

This is insane and has understandably led to conservative backlash and widespread denunciation. As Kaylee McGhee observes, “[T]his is the logical conclusion of the transgender movement: Affirm our agenda or lose your rights to freedom of speech, association, conscience, and even your parental rights.”

McGhee is exactly right, which is why gay people should denounce transgender radicalism and separate ourselves from a movement that would strip away parental rights and force confused children into radical, life-altering decisions, all in the name of adults’ ability to show off how “woke” they are.

Polumbo continued, “First, let’s dispense with the narrative that a 7-year-old can even be transgender at all. Such a young child cannot even truly understand what sex and gender are, let alone sexuality or gender identity. Of course, a child can experience gender confusion: Many children do, and if James wanted to go by the name Luna, wear dresses, or so on, his parents would be wrong to shame him or otherwise stifle him. But that’s a very far cry from making radical, permanent physical changes based on the whims of a young child who, as McGhee notes, doesn’t even meet the medical criteria for a gender dysphoria diagnosis. Moreover, numerous studies show “that a substantial majority [of gender-confused kids] — anywhere from 65% to 94% — eventually ceased to identify as transgender.”

But, those stats did not dissuade the boy’s mother who, according to the Washington Examiner, secured a letter of recommendation for transition for James from a woman associated with a gay children’s therapy center, the Examiner reported.

“This is a letter of recommendation that my client, James Younger, aka Luna, begin the process of becoming a patient of the GENECIS clinic so that she can receive a full psychological assessment for gender dysphoria and potentially take hormone blockers,” said a letter from Rebekka Ouer from Dallas Rainbow Therapy.

A judge is set to rule on the matter Thursday October 24, 2019.

Disturbing Planned Parenthood champion Beto O’Rourke supports late term abortion has long list of controversies

Posted in 2019 Presidential Candidates, Beto, Planned Parenthood politicians with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 21, 2019 by saynsumthn

Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke openly supported late third trimester abortions according to a video recently published online.

A report published by Live Action News, detailed that the Texas Democrat was asked:

Are you for third-trimester abortions or are you going to protect the lives of third-trimester babies? Because, you know, there’s really not a medical necessity for abortion. It’s not a medical emergency procedure because physically, third-trimester abortions take up to three days to have, so… in that sense, if there was an emergency the doctors would just do a C-section and you don’t have to kill the baby in that essence. So, are you for or against third-trimester abortions?”

O’Rourke told his supporters: “So, the question is about abortion and reproductive rights. And my answer to you is that that should be a decision that the woman makes. I trust her.”

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has a 100% voting record with NARAL, the largest abortion lobby group who publicly “thanked” BETO for his position on third trimester abortions.

Beto has a long history of support for abortion and Planned Parenthood – the largest tax-funded abortion vendor in the United States – even endorsed by Planned Parenthood – who called Beto “a friend” in his failed 2018 bid for US Senate.

Planned Parenthood also called Beto a “Champion.”

Planned Parenthood not only endorsed the Texas Congressman, but, according to Open Secrets, Planned Parenthood funded Beto’s 2018 political campaign:

Beto has opposed protections for taxpayers under the Hyde Amendment, (H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act,) to keep the tax payer’s hard earned dollars out of the pockets of abortion providers.

He even supported an undocumented minor being able to access an abortion in Texas.

In 2013, Beto co-supported wide sweeping measures to protect abortion: “Women’s Health Protection Act” and again in 2017.  According to CNS News:

In Congress in 2017, O’Rourke co-sponsored H.R. 1322, the Women’s Health Protection Act. This proposal, which is still sitting the House, would erase nearly all state restrictions on abortion. As it states, “It is the purpose of this Act to protect women’s health by ensuring that abortion services will continue to be available and that abortion providers are not singled out for medically unnecessary restrictions that burden women by preventing them from accessing safe abortion services.”

The report notes that, “In 2017, O’Rourke voted against H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would have prohibited abortion after 20 weeks.” – Which he also bragged about doing did in 2015:

DROPPING F-BOMB

Beto has had his share of controversy, recently dropping the F-Bomb after his 2018 campaign loss, according to KFox14:

Thanking his campaign supporters for their spirited challenge to Sen. Ted Cruz, he said on live television Tuesday: “All of you, showing the country how you do this. I’m so f—ing proud of you guys.”

APOLOGY 

In 2018, Politico also reported how the Democrat Congressman had to apologize after reports he once criticized a Broadway musical with actresses “whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”

The report goes on to state, “While it’s unclear whether O’Rourke was criticizing the musical’s use of scantily-clad women for effect or commenting on their bodies himself, his prose, in hindsight, is jarring either way.”

 

DRIVING DRUNK

At the age of twenty-six, O’Rourke drove drunk, and was given a DUI- admitting as such. He claims he went on to become successful in part because he was White.

The police report was obtained by the liberal media outlet Houston Chronicle, which claims that, “O’Rourke was driving drunk at what a witness called “a high rate of speed” in a 75 mph zone on Interstate 10 about a mile from the New Mexico border. He lost control and hit a truck, sending his car careening across the center median into oncoming lanes. The witness, who stopped at the scene, later told police that O’Rourke had tried to drive away from the scene.

“O’Rourke recorded a 0.136 and 0.134 on police breathalyzers, above a blood-alcohol level of 0.10, the state legal limit at the time. He was arrested at the scene and charged with DWI, but completed a court-approved diversion program and had the charges dismissed.”

According to Politifact, Beto’s “May 1995 misdemeanor arrest on the UTEP campus was later declined and his September 1998 misdemeanor DWI arrest in El Paso was dismissed.”

The check gave us case numbers for the arrests enabling us to fetch an El Paso County record stating that O’Rourke was initially arrested in May 1995 and that case was disposed of in February 1996. We saw too that after the DWI arrest, according to another county record, O’Rourke was referred to a misdemeanor diversion program in March 1999 and completed “DWI school” in May 1999. That document’s last entry, dated Oct. 20, 1999, says: “Misdemeanor diversion completed successfully.”

DISTURBING WRITINGS/HACKING 

In March of 2019, Fox News and other media outlets reported how, “A 15-year-old Beto O’Rourke once wrote a “murder fantasy” short story about running over two children with a car, according to a new report that also revealed the now-presidential candidate was a member of a famous hacking group…But the report also revealed that teenage Beto, in connection with the group, wrote stories under the name “Psychedelic Warlord” — writings that remain online.”

One piece in particular detailed the narrator’s murder spree, as part of his goal seeking “the termination of everything that was free and loving.” The piece described the first kill as the murder of two children crossing the street.

It reads: “Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them.

As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two

— A 15-year-old Beto O’Rourke’s fictional fantasy piece

In another piece, he challenged the perspective of a neo-Nazi who was defending Hitler’s actions.

The details were uncovered in a Reuters report on the “Cult of the Dead Cow,” a famous group of hackers credited with inventing the term “hacktivism,” the Fox report stated.

The disturbing writings as a teen might explain Beto’s lack of concern for babies in the womb, and even those who survive abortions.

The Texas Democrat has voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which would assist babies when they survive abortions. Beto was also asked how he would have voted- should he have defeated his US Senate opponent Ted Cruz in 2018. Given his pro-abortion track record, his opposition to essentially prohibiting infanticide was not surprising.

“I would have listened to the women that I wanted to represent in the state of Texas. I would have listened to doctors and medical providers. I would have looked at the facts and understood the truth and I would have voted with those women to make their own decisions about their bodies.”

Beto’s opposition to protecting babies born alive after abortion dates back years. In 2015, Beto bragged about it on his Facebook page, along with his opposition to removing tax payer funding of Planned Parenthood.

HHS rule requires Planned Parenthood / TitleX recipients report sexual abuse

Posted in Center for Medical Progress, HHS, National Abortion Federation, Sexual Assault and abortion, Title X with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2018 by saynsumthn

Don’t be fooled: Requiring Planned Parenthood to report sexual abuse is a good thing

Planned Parenthood, woman

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has published a proposed rule change to the federal Title X family planning program in the Federal Register, which reiterates the requirement that recipients and subrecipients of those tax dollars must, by law, report sexual abuse, including child sexual abuse and sex trafficking. The move comes on the heels of an investigative report and docuseries published by Live Action, which reveals a systemic decades-long sexual abuse cover-up by Planned Parenthood, one of the largest recipients to Title X funds.

As Live Action News has previously documentedTitle X requires recipients of the government dollars to comply with all federal and state laws involving the reporting of sexual abuse. In 2015 alone, 474 of the organization’s facilities received funding from the federal program.

Live Action’s alarming investigative report opens with this statement from a sexual abuse victim taken to Planned Parenthood for an abortion to cover the predator’s crime:

She’s out there. Somewhere. A girl just like me. Somewhere there’s a young innocent girl – barely a teenager. And right now, she’s suffering from the horrors of sexual abuse at the hands of an adult as I did. Somewhere ‘that girl’ is getting raped. Like I was. Impregnated. Like I was. And she may be taken to a Planned Parenthood abortion center. Like I was. ‘That girl’ may actually be telling Planned Parenthood that she’s being abused. Probably by her boyfriend. In my case, I was abused by my own father. …For six years, Planned Parenthood did everything possible to try to defeat my [legal] claims and drown out my message that, when Planned Parenthood knows or suspects that a young girl is being sexually abused, it must meet its duties under the law and immediately report that abuse to the proper authorities. …We can all get behind cases like mine. Because they’re out there. I know they’re out there. You know they’re out there. Planned Parenthood knows they’re out there.

Live Action’s report, “Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sexual abuse,” also includes a few horrific cases documenting Planned Parenthood’s complicity in covering child sexual abuse:

• Denise Fairbanks had been sexually abused by her father since she was 13. When she became pregnant at age 16, he forced her to have an abortion at Planned Parenthood. Although she told the staff that he was raping her, they refused to report the incident. Instead, they sent her home with him, where he continued to abuse her for another year-and-a-half.
• George Savanah had repeatedly raped his daughter and impregnated her when she was 14, 16, and 17 years old, each time taking her to Planned Parenthood and forcing her to get an abortion. Planned Parenthood neglected to report any of the three suspicious incidents to authorities.
• Timothy David Smith had sexually abused his stepdaughter for seven years and took her to Planned Parenthood when she became pregnant at age 13. Planned Parenthood committed an abortion without notifying her parents and without reporting the suspected abuse to authorities as required by Colorado law.
• Planned Parenthood committed an abortion on a 12-year-old girl at the request of her 23-year-old foster brother, who was also her abuser. Shawn Michael Stevens took her home afterwards and continued to rape her. Planned Parenthood not only neglected to notify authorities, but also failed to notify the victim’s foster parents about the abortion.

Though Live Action has exclusively documented many of Planned Parenthood’s failures and cover-ups, Live Action’s investigative report includes information gleaned from other groups who have participated in legal actions or contributions to the public record, including “reams of documents from lawsuits, court filings, and regulatory agency reports.” Those groups include Alliance Defending Freedom, Life Legal Defense Foundation, Life Dynamics, Americans United for Life, and others.

The proposed Title X rule change indicates that Planned Parenthood and other recipients of Title X funds cannot hide behind “confidentiality” to skirt state and federal laws. It states in part:

As discussed above, Title X grantees and subrecipients are required to comply with all State and local laws requiring notification or reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, incest, and the like. Section 59.11 currently provides that personal information may not be disclosed absent consent by the individual, except to provide treatment, or as required by law, “with appropriate safeguards for confidentiality.” To ensure that Title X grantees and subrecipients comply with applicable reporting requirements, the proposed rule would clarify that concerns about confidentiality of information may not be used as a rationale for noncompliance with such reporting laws.

Under Section 59.17: Compliance With Reporting Requirements, the proposal adds:

New provision § 59.17 would address explicitly the requirement for Title X projects to comply with all State and local laws regarding the notification or reporting of crimes involving sexual exploitation, child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, incest, intimate partner violence, and human trafficking. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 included the following provision: “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no provider of services under Title X of the Public Health Service Act shall be exempt from any State law requiring notification or the reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest.” This provision is consistent with language that has been included in appropriations acts for HHS since fiscal year 1999...

The rule also includes, “those State or local laws respecting intimate partner violence and human trafficking because such criminal activities would be encompassed within the categories of crime enumerated in the Appropriations Act (“child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest”)… Title X grantees and subrecipients have an affirmative obligation to comply with notification or reporting requirements; merely being aware of such requirements is insufficient to comply with the law.”

One might assume that reporting abuse, specifically child sexual abuse, is not an unreasonable requirement for agencies receiving tax dollars. But in a time of intolerance toward the enabling of sexual abuse brought on in part by the MeToo and TimesUp movements, Planned Parenthood continues to receive these taxpayer funds, despite mounting evidencethat they protect abusers by failing to report abuse, often in violation of the law.

Planned Parenthood has little interest in identifying the age of partners of minor children who seek their services. And in a 2008 Live Action investigation, when directly told that an adult is having sex with an underaged minor, Planned Parenthood employees have been shown coach potential sexual abuse victims to lie about the age of their abusers:

In addition, undercover footage captured by the Center for Medical Progress reveals that other abortion providers find mandatory reporting laws unreasonable. In footage now removed from YouTube, a National Abortion Federation abortion provider bemoaned the law as forcing abortion businesses to be a “state actor.” A transcript of the comments were captured by the blog Clinic Quotes, as follows:

[…]these regulations that we all are so familiar in working with fighting with now, challenge the moral agency of physicians. Because they turn physicians into agents of the state. We’re familiar with this with very vulnerable populations, such as making physicians mandatory reporters for child abuse, but it puts them in that same role as a state actor, saying what the state wants them to say or doing what the state wants them to do. It’s a conscription of physicians to perform state actions. In my opinion, if the state wants these things, they should print state flyers and appoint state employees to do these things, rather than force the physicians to do it on the state’s behalf.

Under HHS’ proposed rules, deliberate skirting of mandatory reporting laws would no longer be acceptable. The rule states:

Some practitioners have proposed that providers avoid soliciting or determining the age of the adolescent or the age of their sexual partner as a means of assuring the adolescent of confidential services and, thus, avoiding the potential responsibility of reporting. But Title X exempts neither Title X clinics nor Title X healthcare providers from their responsibility to comply with State and local reporting laws. Sexual exploitation, abuse, or assault (including statutory rape) are crimes that affect individuals, families, and communities. Title X projects should lead the Nation in protecting those who are vulnerable to sexual abuse, rape, and assault; in developing protocols to identify clients who may be at risk for sexual abuse; in counseling teens on, and in producing programs and materials that assist teens in, resisting sexual exploitation, abuse, and coercion; and in assuring appropriate support and management of teens (and women) who have been exploited, abused or coerced into unequal sexual partnerships.

According to former staffers, Planned Parenthood has looked the other way for years when abuse victims entered their doors. Live Action’s investigative report quotes some of these whistleblowers, including Monica Cline, former health educator who worked with Planned Parenthood in Texas and New Mexico:

“[Planned Parenthood workers] adopted George Bush’s ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ [policy]… If we don’t ask how old her partner is, we don’t have to tell. And so Planned Parenthood actually allows victims of human trafficking to continue to be victims of human trafficking. And they’re okay with that. I went back to my office and I told my supervisor, listen, I’m trying to teach them about key concepts on Title X; they’re admitting that they’re not going to report cases of statutory rape.”

Statements like this are a reason HHS has added in the proposed rule:

Through the proposed rule, the Department would require, as a condition of receiving Title X funding, that a project provide assurance that it has a plan in place to comply with State and local laws requiring notification or reporting and maintains appropriate documentation of compliance with these reporting requirements… It would require that Title X grantees and subrecipients have in place a plan that demonstrates that the grantee and any subrecipients are aware of what specific reporting requirements apply to them in their State (or jurisdiction), and provide adequate training for all personnel with respect to these requirements and how such reports are to be made.

In addition, Title X projects would be required to conduct a preliminary screening of any teen who presents with an STD, pregnancy, or suspicion of abuse in order to rule out victimization of a minor. Such screening would be required with respect to any individual who is under the age of consent in the jurisdiction in which the individual receives Title X services. If positively diagnosed, projects are permitted to also treat STDs.

“Even in the rare situation where Planned Parenthood may attempt to argue that it has no legal obligation to report a specific instance of suspected sexual abuse, most people would agree that adults in a position of authority have a moral obligation to do so, especially when the abuse involves minors,” Live Action’s report states, noting, “Despite the evidence that this reporting problem seems to be part of Planned Parenthood’s culture and a ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy regarding underage pregnancies seems to be prevalent throughout the organization, Planned Parenthood affiliates continue to receive Title X funding and children continue to remain trapped in abusive situations.”

Because of this, the HHS proposed rule § 59.17 would “require grantees and subrecipients to maintain records that would identify, among other things, the age of any minor clients served, the age of their sexual partner(s) where required by law, and what reports or notifications were made to appropriate State agencies. The Department would use this documentation to ensure appropriate compliance with State and local reporting requirements.”

Vintage Planned Parenthood poster calls children priceless

This vintage 1972 poster from Planned Parenthood says, “We think children are priceless too.”

It goes on to state, “But if a child happens to be unplanned, it could mean financial pressures. You see a child is not just and extra mouth to feed. Its a whole other life to be provided for.”

This Every Child a Wanted Child Planned Parenthood poster is from 1977:

EVery CHild a Wanted One Planned Parenthood

This Planned Parenthood slogan originates in eugenics .

The origin of Planned Parenthood’s oft repeated slogan “Every child a wanted child” may have come from the eugenics movement, specifically Fredrick Henry Osborn.

Every Child Wanted Child PP

PPPlanYourFamily63

Frederic Osborn once stated that, “Eugenic goals are most likely attained under a name other than eugenics.”

Frederick Osborn

Osborn was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society and he also helped start the Population Council as well as the Pioneer Fund, all known for their population control agenda.

Osborn signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938.

ABCL Committee on PP

According to Evolution in the News, Osborn, a founding member of the American Eugenics Society, restructured the eugenics movement in the 1950s and 1960s, covering up its totalitarian roots and marketing it as “voluntary unconscious selection,” a corrective to natural selection impaired by human domestication (i.e. civilization).

Osborn’s suggested motto for the New Eugenics was “Every Child a Wanted Child“, which now adorns Planned Parenthood’s website and is available on buttons from pro-abortion organizations.

PP Website Every Child Wanted

Saynsumthn Blog wanted to confirm that eugenicist Osborn coined the term, so I contacted the American Philosophical Society which houses records from the eugenics society.

Here is their reply, ” Osborn’s slogan apparently is used in Planned Parenthood, and papers are in Princeton. According to the APS Librarians, We do have a collection of Osborn’s papers at the APS as well and the records of the AES. It’s possible that there is documentation in one of the collections. It’s the kind of question that is likely difficult to determine, unless Osborn published something specifically about it. It does sound like Osborn, the respectable face of eugenics in the post WWII era.

It is no wonder that Osborn also said that, “Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”

Possible second Ebola case in Texas?

Posted in Ebola with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2014 by saynsumthn

This morning I heard WBAP radio report that a possible 2nd case of Ebola was being monitored in Texas and said it was a relative of the first case.

Then a new report from the Dallas County Health and Human Services contradicted the original report. Now they are back pedaling…..

WBAP radio then played the contradictions from Dallas County Health and Human Services – first report vs. second report….people must be panicking because they are pulling back.

But.I was not the only one that heard this- I checked online and twitter and this is what I have found:

tweets

Then…WFAA reported that Due to close contact with a patient diagnosed with the Ebola virus, a second person is under the close monitoring of health officials as a possible second patient, said the director of Dallas County’s health department Wednesday morning in an interview with WFAA.

WFAA Ebola

Zachary Thompson, the director of Dallas County Health and Human Services, says all those who’ve been in close contact with the diagnosed patient are being monitored as a precaution. However, Thompson pointed to one person in particular as a potential second case.

Later, USA Today, reported the same from the WFAA report.

USA Today

Health officials rightly do not want to panic people- but- we do need to know the truth.

My questions are why wasn’t the first man quarantined when he went to the hospital the first time?

Now, two paramedics, who have tested negative so far, have to worry they may have been exposed when they picked up the first Ebola patient to take him to the hospital.

Why are Health Officials not saying where this patient may have been?

WFAA Mix Ebola

Many concerns..but….there is a risk of causing panic – so we must be patient and vigilant to allow the officials to do their jobs.

UPDATE: After hearing that the ambulance that transported the victim was still in use for two days and that 5 children were exposed to Ebola from several Dallas schools before the victim was hospitalized….some more concerns arose for me.

According to a report by CNN, The ambulance that carried the patient – ambulance # 37 — was in use for two days after the transport but was adequately decontaminated, said Dallas city spokeswoman Sana Syed.

“I do want to stress that the paramedics followed national standards, as they do after each transport, in decontaminating the ambulance,” she said. “The Dallas County health department has confirmed that paramedics did follow proper guidelines to avoid contaminating additional patients.”

According to NBC, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and other officials told a news conference Wednesday that the man with the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States had contact up to 18 people, including “some school-age children.”

“The children have been identified and they are being monitored,” the governor said.

Dr. Christopher Perkins, with the Dallas Dept. of Health and Human Services, said that there were five people in the patient’s immediate household and then about 12-18 other “contacts” — including an ambulance crew — all of whom would be monitored closely for 21 days.

Officials said five students at four different schools, two elementary schools, a middle school and a high school, had had contact with the patient over the weekend. They are currently being “monitored” at home, but are not quarantined. The schools are still open.

I have a question that no reporter has asked on the Dallas Ebola patient. What about human waste ? What did he do the days the hospital sent him home? The reason I ask is that when Matt at NBC Today show interviewed the SIM missionary who survived I recall that those docs specifically said they had to contain all his bodily fluids and waste. So….is Ebola infectious once it is flushed down the toilet?

So…I checked… at about 30:00 one of the docs tells Mat Lauer that they cannot flush the Ebola patient’s waste down the toilet…..so what did the Dallas patient do b4 the hospital? The hospital’s protocol’s begin at 26:00

NARAL supporter calls aborted babies “Children” oops “Fetuses” !

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 3, 2014 by saynsumthn

The pro-life group Created Equal took abortion victim images out to Cincinnati for NARAL’s “Stand Up for Abortion Access” rally.

Signs NARAL Ohio 1

In the video they asked several pro-choice NARAL supporters of abortion on demand what they thought of their signs.

They called the images of aborted children on their signs “abominable”, “offensive” and even “foolish.”

NARAL Supporter Children

Then this ( image above) woman is asked what she thinks of the signs and she responds, “They’re on the side of ridiculous…Actually there are very few children [OOPS], ” she catches herself and continues, ” I won’t say children, fetuses, that are aborted, um, at that late stage of a pregnancy.”

Nice try……
