The right to die organization which supported Brittany Maynard’s decision to kill herself has ties to abortion giant Planned Parenthood.


On New Year’s Day, Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer. In April, Doctors told her that she only had six months left to live and she chose to move to Oregon, one of only five states that allow the a person to legally kill themselves with a doctor’s assistance.

In early October, Maynard announced her plans to die on Nov. 1, but then last week she seemed to change her mind on the exact date. In a news video released Wednesday, Maynard said she had not decided what day she would end her life, but she was determined to do it before she became too sick to die with dignity.

Sadly this weekend, 29 year-old Brittany Maynard, who became the public face of the controversial right-to-die movement over the last few weeks, ended her own life at her home in Portland, Oregon.

Maynard’s obituary was posted Sunday on The Brittany Maynard Fund website. The Brittany Maynard Fund, is an initiative of Compassion & Choices, a euthanasia organization and will now be used to advance so-called death with dignity laws nationwide.

Compassion and Choices Brittany Maynard


Jaren_duckerSitting on the Board of Compassion and Choices is Jaren Ducker who has been board president for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and is currently vice president of the Denver Convention Center Hotel Authority board. Ducker also received the Margaret Sanger Award for furthering abortion rights.

Rev.-Dr.-Ignacio-CastueraAnother board member from Planned Parenthood is the Rev. Dr. Ignacio Castuera. Dr. Castuera became the first National Chaplain for Planned Parenthood Federation of America before his retirement. He calls the “right to choose” at any point in a person’s life “sacred,” and is a co-author of Oregon’s first in the nation death-with-dignity law.

David GreenbergDavid Greenberg, Ph.D., sits on the Compassion and Choices advisory board and served as President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette, prior to taking his place on the right to die organization. According to his LinkedIn page, he also served as Board Member of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, Board Member of Planned Parenthood Votes Washington and President and CEO Planned Parenthood of Delaware.

In 2013, the the New York affiliate of Compassion and Choices, welcomed Barry Ensminger to join their board. He had served as Executive Director of Planned Parenthood of New York City.

According to researcher, Rita Dillar, when Compassion and Choices, formerly The Hemlock Society, convened its June 2012 conference, former Planned Parenthood insider Theresa Connor was a featured speaker. She was public policy director for Planned Parenthood in Washington state for 15 years and instituted the research and strategy behind the 2001 Erickson v. Bartell case “that required employers’ insurance plans to cover prescription birth control under anti-discrimination laws.

I have researched and documented that the original right to die panels were formed by members of Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger‘s American Birth Control League an organization whose agenda was eugenics.

In addition, Sanger herself was open about her belief in Euthanasia. This 1952 letter from the Euthanasia Society of America clearly shows Margret Sanger on the American Advisory Board of the Euthanasia Society of America.

Euthenasia Society of America

Euthanasia groups have morphed under many names over the years and Planned Parenthood members remain involved in their promotion of the death ideology:

In 2012 PETER GOODWIN, MD ended his life in accordance with Oregon’s Measure 16 “Death with Dignity Act,” the landmark legislation that he helped craft and champion into law in 1997. Aside from publicly advocating for Measure 16, he served as chairman of the Oregon Death with Dignity Committee. He was also a member of the Planned Parenthood of Columbia/Willamette board.

In 1964, Evelyn Ames co-founded the Planned Parenthood Association of Nashville. She served as the organization’s southeastern representative for nine southern states, and on the executive committee of the national board of directors of Planned Parenthood-World Population. She was also a founder and member of the board of the Nashville chapter of Concern for Dying, an advocacy group for the right to die. Ames Davis died in 1993.

Esther Instebo delivered donations and filled fundraiser tables for Planned Parenthood and Washington politicians. Instebo pulled her friends into Democratic Party politics. Instebo worked with the euthanasia organization Compassion and Choices to qualify for help in dying under the state’s Death with Dignity law. Knowing that she had that option “greatly improved the quality of the last six months of her life because she knew she wouldn’t have to put up with what she was afraid of.”

The nonprofit confirmed to WW this afternoon that Nolan, who lost a bid to unseat incumbent City Commissioner Amanda Fritz in November, is a candidate for the CEO position. She would replace David Greenberg, who left his $196,000 a-year-post earlier this year following contentious contract negotiations with the Service Employees International Union.

According to a 2010, report,

David Greenberg, the Former CEO Earned $196,000-a-year

Cecile Richards; Planned Parenthood President

Planned Parenthood then took those hard earned dollars away from poor and middle class hard working people and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. ( View 2008 990 here )

The $385,163 in pay Planned Parenthood President Richards received in the organization’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2008 was recorded in the group’s publicly available Internal Revenue Service Form 990 filed for that year.

Richards also received $346,285 in total compensation from Planned Parenthood and $38,476 in total compensation from related groups in the organization’s fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2009, according to the organization’s Form 990 for that year.

Planned Parenthood’s Form 990 filed with the Internal Revenue Service for tax year July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011, shows the Cecile Richards’ salary, benefits and compensation totaled $420,153.

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

Former Planned Parenthood Staff

In 2008, a former employee and abortionist for Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette in Oregon by the name of Dr. GEORGE ELLIOTT KABACY, M.D., was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison for possession of child pornography. He was not practicing at the Planned Parenthood at the time of his arrest.

Dr. George Elliott Kabacy was actively practicing as an OBGYN in Washington State at the time of his arrest in December 2006.

At the sentencing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Vince Lombardi said Kabacy “traded pictures of children being subjected to rape and degradation.”

Kabacy admitted in his plea agreement that he knowingly possessed more than 8,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Kabacy also admits to possessing videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, both on his computer and on 36 compact disks. Some of the images depict children under the age of 12, authorities said.

Kabacy admitted that he communicated with other people over the Internet, expressing his interest in having sex with minors and exchanging more than 40 images of child pornography with those other people over the Internet.

He first came to the attention of the FBI after the arrest of an Atlanta man who indicated he had communicated with Kabacy.

The man alleged that Kabacy had sent him a computer in exchange for the man’s promise that he would send Kabacy pornographic pictures of his grandchildren.

Kabacy moved to Washington state and worked until his arrest at Sound Choice Health Center in Olympia.He ceased practicing when he was indicted .

According to Willamentte Week, The top official at Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette is out after 179 health-care workers fought for—and won—a union contract in a battle that brought unwanted publicity for the organization.

The group’s board has chosen not to renew President and CEO David Greenberg’s contract, which expires June 30.

Service Employees International Union Local 49 organized employees last summer, despite Greenberg’s opposition, and then threatened to picket Planned Parenthood’s annual fundraising gala in May. Gov. John Kitzhaber canceled his appearance, and the group had to cancel the $250-per-plate event.

“The board decided with David that this was a good time for a change in leadership at the organization,” says board chairwoman Cara Jacobsen, who says the union contract was one of several reasons the organization was looking for change. Adds Greenberg, “I’m OK with that.”

The group has not yet chosen a new boss.

Below is a video of the ousted CEO speaking at a 2010 Planned Parenthood luncheon:Where he praises Planned Parenthood’s racist founder Margaret Sanger and states that their goals are the same as Sangers’
