Planned Parenthood prez says nation’s #1 abortion provider ‘promotes life’

Planned Parenthood, abortion corporation

In November 2018, the New York Times (NYT) interviewed recently appointed Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen, who replaced political organizer Cecile Richards — the woman who presided over declining patient services and an aborted baby parts scandal. In her interview, Wen dodged topics such as eugenics — a largely racist philosophy — and self-managed abortions, all while claiming she has never done anything in her medical career but save lives. If this is the case, and Dr. Wen values human lives and desires to save lives, she’s working for the wrong organization.

QUESTION #1: Eugenics

The NYT asked Wen, “How do you consider the misinformation — such as, say, that Planned Parenthood furthers eugenics — that can proliferate about the organization?” The paper’s use of the term “misinformation” is intellectually dishonest and a denial of history, which granted Wen the ability to pretend the organization’s known eugenics roots were just part of some vast, pro-life conspiracy.

Wen’s only mention of eugenics was to claim, “The same individuals who are making these eugenics claims are often the ones who want to deprive our communities of evidence-based education like teen-pregnancy prevention programs….”

Now that Dr. Wen is president, does the NYT intend for the public to believe it is “misinformation” that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, had strong eugenics connections, Klan interactions, rants about immigrants, and promoted the idea of forced sterilization? Are we to diminish the horrific effects all those victimized by eugenics as we scrub Planned Parenthood’s well-documented history of it from the public sphere?

Apparently, this liberal press outlet would prefer to rewrite history.

The philosophy of eugenics negatively affected many Black Americans, such as Elaine Riddick, who was forcibly sterilized in North Carolina in 1968. Her tearful testimony encouraged lawmakers to vote for reparations for those like her, who were eugenically sterilized. One of the prominent supporters of that horrific eugenics program was Clarence Gamble, a director of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League, which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood.

But today’s abortion-friendly media appears to have become far more activist than investigative, and the New York Times refused to dig any deeper into Wen’s claims.

Live Action News has documented the following:

  • Planned Parenthood had direct ties to eugenics.
  • The organization was founded by Margaret Sanger, an enthusiastic member of the American Eugenics Society who metwith members of the Klan, writing in her autobiography: “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…. I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses….”
  • Planned Parenthood brought on officials who were leading eugenics proponents.
  • Planned Parenthood received free rent from the Eugenics Society, according to the Eugenics Review.
  • Eugenic boards were sometimes operated by Planned Parenthood associates and some boards referred to the organization (watch Maafa21 clip below):

Year after year, Planned Parenthood has presented its most prestigious Margaret Sanger Award, named after its eugenicist founder, to journalists, to politicians like Democrat Nancy Pelosi, and to members of the media. (Perhaps for its softball Wen interview, the NYT will receive one as well.)

If Dr. Leana Wen truly wants to continue in her pattern of saving human lives, then why is she working for an organization established by people who promoted the idea of forced sterilizations for those arbitrarily deemed “less than”?

QUESTION #2: Self Abortion

The NYT asked Wen, “…[H]ow do you feel about self-induced abortions?” Despite claiming she treated a woman who died from an illegal “home abortion,” Wen passed up the opportunity to denounce the push for self-managed abortions.

Wouldn’t more unsupervised, at-home abortions have the potential to lead to even more emergency room visits like the one she describes in her interview? But instead of defending lives like a medical doctor concerned about women’s safety, Wen answered like a pro-abortion activist: “What I have a problem with is when they — or the government — impose their will on women’s bodies and health.”

Wen pivoted further by redirecting the topic to an attack on pro-lifers — who, by the way,  regularly document transports of women from Planned Parenthood facilities to emergency rooms by ambulance, after so-called “safe” abortions.

“It’s insulting when people describe their anti-choice stance as “pro-life…” said the new leader of the organization killing 320,000 human beings every year.

While the NYT erroneously titled this sad excuse of an interview, “Dr. Leana Wen Dislikes the Politicization of Health Care,” it is beyond clear that Wen is in lockstep with Planned Parenthood, the inventor of abortion politicization, which has enabled the organization to rake in half a billion annually taxpayer dollars that may very well help to pay Wen’s salary. 

After all, it was Planned Parenthood, not those pesky “anti-choice” pro-lifers, who recently unveiled a new plan to expand abortion on demand in 2019. How’s that for politicization?

But perhaps Dr. Wen missed that memo.

As delusional as it sounds, Dr. Wen and the media present abortion as “healthcare” and claim that Wen’s job as the abortion provider’s president is to “promote life and the well-being of women and families and communities” because, she claims, “I’m a physician. I went to medical school. Everything I’ve ever done is to save lives.”

Not all physicians save lives, Dr. Wen — including the ones working for Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole. They’re physicians who went to medical school, too — and some of them fully admit that they’re taking lives for a living.

Dr. Wen would have the public believe that abortion, the deliberate taking of human life in the womb at any stage of pregnancy, for any reason imaginable, committed 900 times per day by her organization, is “promot[ing] life.”

Comedian jokes about pushing pregnant woman down stairs to cause abortion

Posted in Bro-Choice, War on Women with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2014 by saynsumthn

A comedian who writes for Sports Illustrated and is featured on ESPN and other media outlets has joked about pushing a pregnant woman down a flight of stairs in a video he published about abortion protesters.

Steve Hofstetter writes a weekly humor column on SportsIllustrated.com, blogs funny for NHL.com and contributes to “Maxim” and “ESPN Magazine.” Steve’s “Sports Minute (Or So)” is syndicated on 194 radio stations nationwide, and he’s a frequent guest on ESPN, Fox Sports and Sporting News Radio.

So…when he uploaded this video on abortion humor it was rather shocking.

Steve Hofstetter war on abortion protesters

In the vid called, The War on Abortion Protesters, Steve describes his interaction with “abortion protesters” in line at an Office Depot, “Now, I know that because they brought it up. In a line- at an Office Depot. Like it was a normal piece of conversation,” he tells the audience.

The protesters told him they were late to their abortion protest. Steve’s response is definitely funny – but- I think as the gig continues – he crosses the line.

These guys were jerks,” he continues,”Not because I disagree with their politics. You can disagree with someone it doesn’t make them a bad person“, the comedian says seriously.

They were jerks because they were [expletive] the line was taking to long,” he explains, “These guys are jawing my ear off as if I could do something about it.”

We’re late to our abortion protest“, he mocks.

After five minutes of this finally I turned to them, and I said, I bet if you guys had supported abortion, this line could have been shorter,” Steve continues.

The audience then laughs.

Well…okay….I get it…it’s humor, right? But…wait….

Steve then explains that, “I told that story in Hayes, Kansas. I’d had better luck performing an actual abortion on stage.”

Audience LAUGHS….

Was taking a volunteer from the crowd. Does anyone have any pregnant women? Now whose got a flight of stairs?

That weird moment when you can’t believe what just came out of your mouth and neither can your audience:

Oh, come on, I’m not a doctor,” he says.

Bingo – there it is a typical pro-choice male or shall I say Bro-choice response to abortion. Pushing a pregnant woman down a flight of stairs is NOTHING and may I emphasis NOTHING to joke about. But- hey- if you think joking about ending the life of a baby is funny – there isn’t much of a stretch when you dehumanize the child’s mother either.

Perhaps this is all in fun and I am overreacting. I will leave it to those commenting here to debate that. But, the truth is, abortion kills millions of innocent children. Also true is that women are commonly coerced into abortions and are attacked for refusing to have abortions by the men who want OUT of their responsibility to be a father.

A report published a few years ago by Life Dynamics, in Denton, Texas proved this over and over again with horrific examples.

Over the years, we have collected data on a large volume of these cases, the bulk of which are non- fatal assaults. Although the victims of these attacks often suffer horrifying and crippling physical injuries, we chose to concentrate solely on instances in which the victim died,” the group writes in the study, “In almost every incident in which women are told that they will be physically harmed unless they abort, they are going to comply, never tell anyone and, thus, fade into anonymity. For those who resist and end up on a stretcher or an autopsy table, they can expect to have their experiences hidden under a thick blanket of media deception.From these realities, the inescapable conclusion is that the case studies in this document can represent no more than the tiniest tip of an enormous iceberg,” the Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion, report reads.

With all the ramblings about the War on Women and calling for NFL players who abuse women to be fired one would think that joking about assaulting a pregnant women as a do-it-yourself abortion method would be frowned upon. One would think anyway!
