Legal abortion equals more abortion, and America’s history is proof of this

abortion

Prior to the 1973 Roe v. Wade court decision, each state had its own abortion laws. Many had laws on the books banning it completely, but others legalized it in some form well before 1973. Roe didn’t become Roe overnight. We can trace its roots back more than a decade prior. And as is usually the case with abortion, once an inch is given, so to speak, those in favor of it tend take a mile. Here’s where it began:

1959: American Law Institute passes model penal code to liberalize abortion, the basis for Roe v. Wade

In 1959, the American Law Institute (A.L.I.), an organization of American lawyers and other elite members of the judiciary, whose mission was the reform of American law, proposed that therapeutic abortions should be legal. Although the first draft of the Model Penal Code to liberalize abortion was released on May 21, 1959, the final version was issued in 1962.

The law proposed that “[a] licensed physician is justified in terminating a pregnancy if he believes there is a substantial risk:

(1) When continuation of pregnancy would gravely impair the physical and mental health of the mother; or

(2) When the child might be born with grave physical or mental defect; or

(3) When the pregnancy resulted from rape, incest, or other felonious intercourse.”

The ALI’s Model Penal Code was the premise of the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade. At that time a large percentage of states allowed abortion only when the woman’s life was endangered. By 1967, three states had liberalized it; according to Time.com, by 1968, four of five states—Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia and Maryland, had authorized it “if the child is likely to be born defective,” but “California did not sanction this ground because Governor Ronald Reagan threatened to veto any bill that included it.”

According to the Washington Post, “Through the mid-1960s, 44 states outlawed abortion in nearly all situations that did not threaten the life or health of the mother.”

In 1966, abortion was still illegal in all fifty states, according to Dr. and Mrs. John C. Willke. However, in 1966, Mississippi altered its existing law by adding rape as an indication for a hospital abortion, according to the CDC’s first abortion surveillance report in 1969. And, according to National Right To Life’s timeline, in 1954, Alabama permitted abortions for the mother’s physical health.

According to Dr. Willke, “The Bureau of Vital Statistics reported only 160 mothers had died from abortion in 1966 in the entire USA.”

1973: Abortion legalized nationwide by Supreme Court, with more than 600,000 abortions 

In 1969, the CDC estimates that there were 22,670 abortions. As more states began to legalize it, the numbers climbed dramatically. By 1970, the CDC reported 193,491, and the list went on:

1971: 485,816
1972: 586,760
1973: 615,831

After the U.S. Supreme Court decided to legalize abortion nationwide by a 7 to 2 decision in Roe v. Wade, the CDC Abortion Surveillance report from 1973 indicates that a total of 615,831 legal procedures were reported from 50 states and the District of Columbia and New York City.

Alan F. Guttmacher, MD, who served as Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s president from 1962–1974, responded to the ruling by stating, “I think that to raise the dignity of woman and give her freedom of choice in this area is an extraordinary event. I think that Jan 22, 1973, will be a historic day.”

According to the CDC, in ten states, abortions outnumbered live births among teens 15 years and younger.

By race, the numbers broke down as follows:

  • 67.7% were white
  • 25.7% were Black or other races
  • 6.6% reported race was unknown

At the time the initial report was filed, the CDC reported that 51 deaths related to legal, illegal, and spontaneous abortions had been reported in 1973, and 71 in 1972. However, those reports were eventually updated.

In this table from the CDC report (shown below), 39 women died from illegal abortion in 1972, and 19 in 1973 while 24 died from legal abortion in 1972 and 25 died in 1973.

CDC Abortion deaths 1972 to 1990

Live Action News has previously documented how the abortion lobby falsely claimed that hundreds of thousands of women died annually from illegal terminations, in a deliberate effort to push abortion on the nation. Standing in stark contrast to this is the breakdown of the estimated numbers going back to 1930. Clearly, the claims that hundreds of thousands of women were dying was a complete falsehood — and Dr. Bernard Nathanson, founder of NARAL, later admitted as much:

Roe v. Wade was filed by Norma McCorvey, known as ‘Roe,’ and was argued by Sarah Weddington. McCorvey would later admit that the claim that she had become pregnant through rape was fabricated. In fact, McCorvey’s child was never aborted. Her baby was born while the case was still being argued and she ultimately placed her child for adoption.

McCorvey became a staunch pro-life advocate and later expressed sorrow for her participation in the infamous court decision, working to overturn the case up until her passing in February of 2017 at the age of 69.

Prior to Roe, Abortion Legalization by State (1960’s and 1970’s)

Posted in Abortion History, Abortion legalization by state with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2018 by saynsumthn

Researched by: Carole Novielli

Prior to the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that forced abortion on the nation, abortion was illegal in a majority of states, except to save the life of the mother. At that time the decriminalization of abortion was left up to states to decide.

Laws legalizing abortions by state began in the late 1960’s as follows:

1966: Mississippi allows abortion for rape

In 1966, Mississippi altered its existing abortion law by adding rape as an indication for hospital abortion, according to the CDC’s first abortion surveillance report in 1969.

1967: Colorado becomes first state to decriminalize abortion further, followed by North Carolina and California

On April 25, 1967, Colorado became the first state in the U.S. to decriminalize abortion, along the lines proposed by the American Law Institute (ALI.) The bill was introduced by then Representative Richard D. Lamm. According to the Associated Press:

“On April 25, 1967, Colorado became the first state to allow abortion for reasons other than rape or an imminent threat to a woman’s health. The bill passed a Republican-controlled Legislature with bipartisan support and was signed into law by Republican Gov. John Love despite strong objections from many constituents…Love said the new law requires that abortions be performed only in accredited hospitals and that each operation must have the unanimous consent of a special three-man board of physicians… Colorado law previously allowed abortions only in cases presenting a severe threat to the physical health of the mother or in pregnancies resulting from forcible rape. The new law permits the ending of pregnancies presenting a severe threat to the health — mental or physical — of the mother. It allows the termination of pregnancies resulting from incest or from any of the classifications of rape — including statutory rape.”

According to a report by the New York Times, in 1966, only 50 abortions were committed in the state and permitted if the mother’s life was endangered. In the first 14 months of legalization, more than half of the abortions were reported for reasons of “mental health” and only 32 for “medical reasons.”

Abortions rose in Colorado over the years as follows:

  • 1967 (last half of year) – 140
  • 1968 – 500
  • 1969 – 946

In May of 1967, North Carolina liberalized its abortion statutes, similar to the Colorado law.

In June of 1967, the California legislature also passed abortion law reforms. The law was signed by then Governor Ronald Reagan on June 14, 1967. The so-called Therapeutic Abortion Act took effect November 8, 1967 and restricted abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy.

Image: 1967 California liberalizes abortion laws

According to the National Review, there were 518 abortions reported in the state that same year, and the New York Times reports that by the first half of 1968, 2,035 legal abortions were reported. A separate New York Times report states that by 1969, 14,000 abortions were reported. Sadly, the National Review claims that by the end of Reagan’s remaining years as Governor, the number of abortions would soar to an annual average of 100,000. Reagan later admitted that abortion had been “a subject I’d never given much thought to.”  

By 1971, a state appeals court ruled that all abortions could be legal in the state of California.

Reagan biographer Lou Cannon claims this was “the only time as governor or president that Reagan acknowledged a mistake on major legislation.” Reagan’s longtime adviser and Cabinet secretary Bill Clark called the incident “perhaps Reagan’s greatest disappointment in public life.”

Ronald Reagan went on to become the most pro-life president the US has had since the legalization of abortion through the Roe v. Wade decision.

1968: Georgia and Maryland become fourth and fifth states to legalize abortion

In 1968, Georgia became the fourth state to legalized abortion. The bill passed the House 144 to 11 and the Senate 39 to 11.

Maryland also passed a similar law that same year.

1969: Arkansas, Delaware, Kansas, New Mexico, and Oregon pass abortion legislation

By 1969, twelve states in addition to Colorado and California had legalized abortion, most for very restrictive reasons, according to the Willkes. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued their first abortion surveillance report noting that in the same year, five states had passed new abortion legislation (Arkansas, Delaware, Kansas, New Mexico and Oregon) and 24 other states considered new bills.

According to the Abortion Surveillance Report Annual Summary 1969, published by the US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare… National Communicable Disease Center, “Oregon became the first state to follow the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology [ACOG], which makes the following allowance, “In determining whether or not there is substantial risk (to the woman’s physical or mental health), account may be taken for the mother’s total environment, actual or reasonably foreseeable. The other four states enacted laws based on the American Law Institute Penal Code.”

In June of 1969, New Mexico liberalized its abortion law.

Image: 1969 New Mexico liberalizes abortion

According to Jonathan B. Sutin:

“New Mexico’s 1969 abortion law… makes it unlawful for any person to produce an untimely interruption of a woman’s pregnancy with intent to destroy the fetus. Yet termination of the pregnancy is justified, under certain consensual and medical requirements, in the following instances:

  • The continuation of the pregnancy … is likely to result in the death of the woman or the grave impairment of the physical or mental health of the woman; or
  • The child probably will have a grave physical or mental defect, or
  • The pregnancy resulted from rape… or
  • The pregnancy resulted from incest.

According to the CDC, “In 1969, four of the nine states with recently changed abortion laws reported *12,417 legal abortions to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).” (*See end as numbers were later updated).

This same year, the Supreme Court of California rendered a decision in the case of People vs. Belous, which, according to the CDC, invalidated the pre-1967 California abortion law and raised the issue of constitutionality of state abortion statutes. Also in 1969, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia decided on the case of Dr. Milan Vuitch, a Washington abortionist indicted for illegal abortions. The court ruled that the State’s law labeling abortion as a felony was unconstitutional.

Next, we will detail abortion legalization by state in the 1970’s.

1970: New York, Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska legalize abortion

In 1970, eleven states, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon and South Carolina, had reform laws similar to the ALI’s Model Penal Code. And, according to Time.com, “four more lifted all abortion restrictions — New York, Washington, Hawaii and Alaska — before 1970.”

By 1970, more than *180,000 legal abortions were reported to the CDC from 19 states and the District of Columbia, according to the Abortion Surveillance Report published that year. (*See end as numbers were later updated).

The following table shows reported legal abortions for 14 states and the District of Columbia:

Image: 1970: CDC reported abortions in 14 states plus DC.

In April of 1970, New York decriminalized abortion (by one vote) up to the 24th week. The law went into effect on July 1st.

Image: 1970 New York legalizes abortion CDC

At that time, the state had a Republican Governor and Republicans controlled both Houses of the legislature, according to the New York Times. During the debate to liberalize abortion in New York in 1970, the false claim that thousands of  women died annually from unsafe abortions one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in New York.

More states followed: South Carolina, Virginia, Kansas, Washington

An American Law Institute (ALI) type law became effective in South Carolina on January 27, 1970 and Virginia on June 27, 1970.

Although Kansas passed its abortion reform law in 1969, it did not become effective until July 1, 1970. In March of 1970, Hawaii changed its law on abortion allowing for no restrictions on the reasons why a woman might obtain an abortion. Shortly thereafter Alaska followed suit and their law became effective on July 29, 1970.

Image: 1970 states that liberalized abortion laws CDC

Washington State’s abortion law change was enacted by a referendum held during the November 1970 general elections and went into effect December 3, 1970, according to the CDC.

Also on March 17, 1970, a woman by the name of Norma McCorvey  signed affidavit challenging the Texas law on abortion. Oral arguments in that case were heard before a  three judge district court in Dallas in May of that same year. By June, the court ruled the Texas statute unconstitutional, opening up the challenge that led to the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973.

1971: 24 states plus Washington, D.C., liberalize abortion laws – and abortions nearly triple

In 1971, *480,259 abortions were reported to the Center for Disease Control from 24 states and the District of Columbia. (*See end as numbers were later updated).

At this time 79.2% of all legal abortions were performed on White women and 18.9% were performed on Black women or women of other races, according to the CDC’s 1971  Abortion Surveillance Report.

Image: 1971 reported number of legal abortions to CDC

Although several states attempted to liberalize or change their abortion abortion statutes, most failed due in part to strong pro-life sentiment. Author and researcher Daniel K Williams reports:

In 1971, twenty-five states considered abortion legalization bills. Every one of them failed to pass. In 1972, the pro-life movement went on the offensive and began campaigning for measures to rescind recently passed abortion legalization laws and tighten existing abortion restrictions.

In 1971, several important court decisions were also rendered as follows:

  • Illinois: Doe v. Scott
  • North Carolina: Corkey v. Edwards
  • District of Columbia: United States v. Vuitch
  • Wisconsin: Babbitz v. McCann

1972: 27 states plus Washington D.C. have abortion laws on the books, and abortions are rising

By 1972, *586,760 legal abortions were reported to the CDC from 27 states and the District of Columbia. (*See end as numbers were later updated).

  • 75.7% were White
  • 22.6% were Black or other races
Image: 1972 reported abortions by state to CDC

1972 reported abortions by state to CDC

In 1972, the Supreme Court heard two cases, Roe v. Wade and the companion case Doe v. Bolton. The court, made up of nine male justices, ruled by a vote of seven to two to legalize abortion and released their decision on January 22, 1973.

Although Norma MCCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe case claimed she was gang raped, and thus needed an abortion, she later recanted the claim admitting, “[I] made up the story that I had been raped to help justify my abortion.”

In 1995, Norma Joined pro-life movement.

In like manner, Sandra Cano, a/k/a/ “Doe” in the companion case to Roe later claimed that she was unaware her name had been used in this case and that she never sought or had an abortion. 

Image: Sandra Cano was Doe in the Doe v Bolton Supreme Court abortion case

Cano told members of the media, “The case brought by my lawyer in the name of Mary Doe was a fraud upon the Supreme Court of the United States and the people of America. My mother and my lawyer wanted me to have an abortion. Not me.”

In 2003, Norma filed an unsuccessful motion to have Roe V. Wade overturned, it was denied in 2005.

*NOTE: In the 1973 CDC Surveillance Report, abortion numbers in previous years were updated as follows:

  • 1969: 22,670
  • 1970: 193,491
  • 1971: 485,816
  • 1972: 586,760

Another violent act against pro-life sidewalk counselors, are they on the increase?

Posted in pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2016 by saynsumthn

The media continues to portray pro-lifers as crazed and violent people who go around attacking women, but the truth is, there are many acts of violence that occur against activists who oppose abortion. Case in point is an incident which occurred recently in Orlando Florida where two pro-life sidewalk counselors say they felt threatened as they warned the parents of a young girl taking their daughter for an abortion that the clinic had a bad reputation.

Pro-lifers Michele Herzog and Sandra Diaz were outside the EPOC abortion clinic in Orlando, Florida, which is owned by the notorious James Pendergratft when they had an altercation with an abortion advocate. Diaz told Live Action News that when they noticed when a car with New Hampshire license plates pull into the abortion clinic they observed how young the girl in the vehicle was.

    I told Michele she is very young.

Diaz said that Herzog, who regularly counsels outside Florida abortion clinics, was only trying to give the couple some materials warning them about how dangerous that facility was when the woman in the car came towards her in a very aggressive manner.

    The woman came out of the back seat and didn’t go towards the abortion clinic. She went at Michele in an aggressive way.

Abortion mom agressive towards prolife counselor

Diaz said the woman was screaming at Michele and making describing her daughter’s preborn baby as small claiming that the baby would not feel pain. In a video of the incident provided to Live Action News, you can hear the woman angrily say:

    The fetus is this small.

Fetus is this small

Herzog pointed out to the angry woman that abortion clinic kills children up to 24 weeks. That is when the woman noticed that Diaz had her camera phone out and was recording the altercation. Herzog detailed what happened next:

    The woman began screaming at us and ran toward me and stood right in my face, it looked like she was going to punch me so Sandra got her camera out to video tape, and when she saw that, she went ballistic and lunged toward Sandra and ripped the phone out of her hands. She walked off with it and wouldn’t give it back.

Sont take my picture

Screen grabs from the recording clearly show the pro-abortion woman lunging at Diaz.

Abortion mom grabs prolifer phone

Diaz said that she asked the woman to please return her phone but the abortion mom charged to the other side of driveway, where her son was standing and yelled at him as well.

    I told her get away from my son. And I realized that she was being demonic so I said ‘I rebuke you Satan.

Woman attacks prolifers at Florida abortion clinic

Diaz and Herzog flagged down a police officer and as he pulled into the clinic, the woman ran to his car but, according to Diaz did not immediately listen to the officer to back away. The officer eventually retrieved the phone and returned it to Diaz where the video Diaz was able to capture collaborated Diaz’s story. Diaz was given a victim sheet to fill out and has requested that theft charges be filed against the women. She has yet to hear what authorities intend to do.

Meanwhile, Diaz states that the young girl never had the abortion and the family left the clinic after the incident.

Police called to Planned Parenthood after man threatens prolife with gun

In another example that occurred over a year ago, Gloria Boze, who is a regular outside a Planned Parenthood in Colorado, told Live Action News that after she was threatened with a gun. authorities refused to prosecute the offender. According to the pro-life sidewalk counselor, she petitioned a man to take his wife and leave Planned Parenthood when he threatened her with a gun. Boze recalled his words.

    I have a gun in my car, and I’m going to shoot you.

She said their pro-life group immediately called the police who arrived within minutes as the man was about to leave Planned Parenthood.

    He was taken out of his car, placed in handcuffs, and put in the back of a police cruiser.

She said that when police searches his car they found the fully loaded weapon in the back seat.

    There was also an ammo clip hanging from the rear view mirror. We were all so shocked.

    After about 2 hours the man was released and went back in to Planned Parenthood. It was stunning to think that a man could threaten to kill you, be found to have a loaded gun in his car, and then return to his life, no harm, no foul. The police never
    spoke to us again to let us know that the man had been let go.

According to Boze, when the police report came out there was no mention of the gun whatsoever!

    Because we had the video, and told them so, they amended their report and then included the gun. Several months later I got a call from the district attorney handling the case informing me that she would not bring it to trial. The reason being that there was no way that a jury would find the defendant guilty due to the emotionally charged reasons this man was at Planned Parenthood. He and his wife were at the abortion clinic because she was dying of terminal cancer and had to terminate the pregnancy. Absurd.

And, where guns are concerned this isn’t the first time pro-lifers have been threatened. In 2010, Operation Rescue documented that an abortion advocate threatened to gun down a pro-life activists at a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Also in 2010, Charleston Police arrested abortionist Gary Boyle after he pointed a gun at three abortion protesters near the back entrance of the Charleston’s Women’s Medical Center abortion center in South Carolina.

In 2015, an Indiana man was arrested after he threatened anti-abortion activists with a gun at an Illinois Planned Parenthood. Then, in July of that same year, Bristol, Tennessee, police arrested Derrick Doss just outside the Bristol Women’s Clinic abortion clinic after he brandished a gun at pro-life demonstrators as he walked into clinic with his girlfriend. And in North Carolina police refused to arrest another man who pulled out a weapon to threaten Abortion Abolitionists outside the A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh.

Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ, who is a regular presence outside a late term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, owned by abortionist Curtis Boyd, along with his wife Tara and others, has been a frequent target of violence. He said the real violence comes from abortion advocates.

    We are using every peaceful and legal avenue available to expose the violent atrocities perpetuated against babies in the womb. Abortion is the ultimate act of violence and from our experience here in New Mexico, those who advocate for the extreme position of killing a baby for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy are the violent ones.

Planned Parenthood baby parts doc served on board of National Abortion Federation

Savita Ginde is a Planned Parenthood abortionist in Colorado recently exposed in a Center for Medical Progress investigation on the harvesting of baby body parts who is also involved in a program to “train” abortion providers.

Interestingly enough, Ginde also sits on the board of the largest organization of abortion providers in the nation, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) which tried to censor CMP’s videos.

NAF claims to publish clinical standards for abortion providers in the country.

Ginde is heard in the video speaking about her ability to alter the abortion method to get, intact fetuses, she calls “specimens” in a way that does not “crush” fetal organs.

Toward the end of the video Ginde is seen inside Planned Parenthood’s path lab poking around the legs and body parts of the aborted children asking the CMP under cover “buyer” if researchers want brains and eyeballs.

Calling broken pieces of the unborn child “war torn”, the Planned Parenthood abortionist points out that “2nd tris” are large enough to just put their hands in and pick out the body parts.

Ginde and her medical assistant then identify heart and kidneys when they laughingly point out that the body they are separating by the most valuable body parts was a boy!

In 2009″ Planned Parenthood bragged that their “clinical research” was enhanced by Ginde writing in a PPRM publication:

    PPRM’s leadership role in advanced reproductive health care and clinical research has significantly grown with the appointment of Dr. Savita Ginde as medical director in 2004. Prior to PPRM, she conducted numerous clinical research trials within the reproductive health care specialty and, fortunately for us, continued this practice upon joining our team.

Adding:

    The Clinical Research division is currently working to increase PPRM’s participation in clinical trials and behavioral and environmental studies. Our goal is to become a research leader within Planned Parenthood Federation of America and to continue providing high quality care to our clients.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains recently posted a sign saying that they were “proud” of their “work” go figure!

In addition to sitting on the board of NAF, Ginde is also on the board of Colorado’s Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights a radically, pro-abortion rights organization, as PPRM’s liaison.

In 2010 alone Savita Ginde, as the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood took in over $269,000 in salary.

By 2012, that amount rose to $270,327 in reportable compensation for only 20 hours a week of work plus $21,335 in OTHER COMPENSATION!

Colorado Atty. General to Investigate Planned Parenthood Videos Coaching Young Girls in BDSM

According to Breitbart, the attorney general of Colorado says he will have his staff review the Live Action investigative video of a Denver Planned Parenthood employee coaching a young woman, believed to be only 15-years old, in the practice of high-risk sexual activities, including bondage/discipline and sado-masochistic sex (BDSM).

The second installment of pro-life organization Live Action’s series titled “SexEd: Planned Parenthood’s Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids,” features Denver Planned Parenthood counselors suggesting to the undercover investigator a spectrum of sadistic sexual behaviors, such as “whipping,” “tying up,” and “asphyxiation.”

But should the “investigation” only be for the videos? Why not the failure to report child sexual abuse?

A new report just issued by the organization, Life Dynamics, shows abuses in Colorado as well. The report, entitled, The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse, details the criminal case of James Bernard Isenhower who was convicted on child sexual assault charges in both Colorado and Texas and is summarized by Life Dynamics below:

In 2000, Isenhower was a 52-year-old Danbury, Texas, police officer when he began a sexual relationship with the 14-year-old daughter of a woman he was dating. In 2001, “Marlie” was pregnant and he took her to a Houston area abortion clinic. Her mother accompanied them and, afterward, was forced by Isenhower to destroy the documentation from the clinic so that there would be no paper trail. At trial, she testified that she was afraid not to comply with his demands because she was not a legal resident of the United States. It is obvious the abortion clinic did not file a report since Isenhower continued to assault Marlie until 2005 when she came forward and told authorities what was occurring. Isenhower was convicted on child sexual assault charges in both Colorado and Texas. He is currently serving a 20-year sentence in the state penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas.

We do not know if he impregnated any children in Colorado like he did Texas, but, should this not be investigated?

We do know that on the whole- if you read the report by Life Dynamics- you will see a pattern of covering of child sexual abuse by the abortion and Planned Parenthood industry emerge.

In fact, the group also details the case of Timothy David Smith in Colorado:

According to a 2014 lawsuit against Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood, Smith, began sexually assaulting his six-year-old stepdaughter “Bess” in 2005 and continued to do so for approximately seven years. During that time, Bess became pregnant and was taken by Smith to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Denver. Court records state that Bess gave her real age at the clinic and signed some of the forms, but that the majority of them were completed by Smith and unread by Bess. It was also stated that, following the abortion, Bess was offered birth control and directed by Smith to take it in the form of an injection so that her mother would not find out about it. Although Bess initially refused saying that she did not like shots, she eventually gave in. Her mother is suing Planned Parenthood and four of its employees claiming that their failure to comply with the state’s mandatory reporting law allowed the sexual assaults of her daughter to continue for months. In July of 2012, Smith was charged with two counts of felony sexual abuse and, in January of 2013, he was sentenced to 28 years in prison.

Pro-choice “death chain” claims no one is for abortion

A video published by the radically left-wing pro-abortion group, Common Sense Action, shows Planned Parenthood and abortion supporters forming a pro-abortion death chain to protest a law which would rightly define an unborn child as a person in Colorado.

Capture1

The state was one of the first states in the nation to legalize abortion on demand prior to the 1973 Supreme Court Roe V. Wade decision.

The protest termed by me as a “death chain” appears to mimic the pro-life “life chains” and claims to be opposing a Colorado proposal to define unborn babies as human beings. The video narration describes pro-life legislatures as, “The Tea-Baggers in the Colorado House.

The youtube “about” text reads, “Starting on Ash Wednesday, March 5, to Good Friday, April 18, an anti-choice group said they would protest at each of our women’s health centers in Colorado, so we have been showing up to protest these haters at the Planned Parenthood at Fillmore and Centennial.

The video narrator calls the Personhood movement the “radical Vatican ideology of defining life as beginning at fertilization” and then calls the unborn child in the womb a “hollow ball of differentiating cells” and the pregnant mother the “female host within whose body it dwells.”

Towards the end of the nauseating video, the narrator says, “Pro-choice is not pro-abortion, no one is for abortion.”

Sorry, but, watching your pro-abortion video, it doesn’t look that way to me….

Abortion rights org honors anti-immigration advocate who promotes population control

According to a tweet to NARAL the abortion group honored Richard Lamm, who promotes anti-immigration thru several organizations.

The Southern Poverty Law Center accuses several anti-immigration groups of racism.

NARAL Honors Richard Lamm

According to Image 2050, Richard “Dick” Lamm: the former Governor of Colorado is long-time associate of Tanton. Lamm has long served on the board of advisers for the Federation of American Immigration (FAIR), the group Tanton founded in 1979. Lamm was a part of the Tanton-inspired attempt to hi-jack the Sierra Club’s board in 2003, after the group dropped population politics from its agenda in 1996. Lamm has also served on PFIR’s board since its launch. In the past, the former Governor has attacked immigrants by regarding their presence in the United States to the Denver Post as follows: “this onslaught of new people and new cultures [is] diluting what we are and who we are.” He is also on the national board of advisers of an official FAIR state contact group, Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), which like FAIR has received funding from the pro-eugenics Pioneer Fund.

Richard Lamm FAIR

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion.

Colorado’s bill was carefully steered through the lower house by then Denver Representative Richard D. Lamm. Lamm was the abortion bill’s principle sponsor. The abortion bill was the first one to pass a state legislature in the United States setting off a domino effect of other bills in various other states. It was signed into law by then Governor John A. Love.

Richard D. Lamm is Co-Director of the Institute for Public Policy Studies at the University of Denver, and the former three-term Governor of Colorado, (1975-1987).

Today Lamm sits on the boards of several anti-immigration organizations the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and (PFIR), Progressives for Immigration Reform, and (CAPS), Californians for Population Stabilization.

Lamm has always been in the forefront of political change. As a first year legislator, he drafted and succeeded in passing the nation’s first liberalized abortion law. He was an early leader of the environmental movement, and was President of the First National Conference on Population and The Environment. Lamm was elected to three terms as Colorado’s top elected official, and in serving as Governor from January 1975 and retiring in January 1987, he was the longest-serving Governor in Colorado’s history to that date.

In a press release about his newest book, THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF HEALTH CARE, Lam writes about limits, rationing and denial to Americans of some of the health care they have come to expect. “We are going to have to have a candid dialog and set priorities on spending limits at the beginning of life, the end of life, and all points in between. No modern nation can build a health care system an individual at a time. The new questions in health care will not only be What do we need? but What can society afford? I hope this book makes Americans more aware of that.” Former Colorado Governor Richard Lamm is well known for speaking out about issues that politicians find too controversial to address, including his often misinterpreted “Duty to Die” speech in 1984. He was also a presidential candidate for the Reform Party.

Lamm’s position on the board the (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration Reform lays side by side founding notable population controllers as Paul Ehrlich and Garret Hardin.
