Past Live Action investigations and court cases have demonstrated Planned Parenthood‘s willingness to cover for child sexual predators and abusers, even returning victims to their abusers and failing to report underage pregnancies or suspected sexual abuse to authorities. This taxpayer-funded organization, receiving half a billion dollars in these funds annually, should be called to account, especially in a society so aware of sexual assault. So, why is Planned Parenthood’s corruption in this area being silenced by politicians, media and Hollywood alike?

It is possible that these Planned Parenthood-friendly groups know but choose to say nothing, because, like the New York Times recently discovered with Harvey Weinstein, Planned Parenthood has a network of complicit “bodyguards,” so to speak, protecting the organization from damaging scrutiny.

And yet, grueling testimonies and police reports of actual criminal cases in which Planned Parenthood patients, victimized by sexual abuse and rape and then taken for abortions, are available to read at Live Action News (herehere, and here).

Planned Parenthood-covers child sexual abuse

 

The media has repeatedly been caught in Planned Parenthood’s web of lies — though willingly, it seems, as many pro-choice “journalists” allow their support of abortion to keep them from doing real investigative reporting. Even in the face of proof, Planned Parenthood’s media complicity machine remains quiet, resulting in sexual abuse victims being forgotten.

In one example, physician and HLN host Dr. Drew Pinsky, a former employee of Planned Parenthood, came to Planned Parenthood’s defense when pro-lifers made allegations that the abortion corporation covered up child sexual abuse. Rather than do his own investigation, Dr. Drew lashed out at Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) Director of Alliance Relations. Watch the exchange in the video below, where ADF includes the very “evidence” Dr. Drew failed to find on his own:

Dr. Drew admitted on his show that he worked for Planned Parenthood… hardly a non-biased reporting source. He said, “I was there. We were working for Planned Parenthood to create an environment where young women could feel safe….”

Safe? I don’t think so, Dr. Drew!

Planned Parenthood regularly rewards the media complicity machine by “honoring” them with the “Media Excellence” and “Maggie Awards.”

1. Irin Carmon – national reporter and Planned Parenthood awardee

Carmon is one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Media and was a national reporter at MSNBC and NBC News. Yet, this “journalist” was recently highlighted at a Planned Parenthood event and has been awarded by the abortion corporation. To date, she has failed to report the way Planned Parenthood covers for child sexual predators.

2015 Planned Parenthood Maggie Award to media

And she is not alone.

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America bestowed Media Excellence Awards to 13 journalists during its 2016 National Conference Gala. Such as…

2. Amy Goodman – executive producer and Planned Parenthood awardee

Goodman, executive producer of Democracy NOW, received the “highest honor” from Planned Parenthood, according to Katie Yoder at NewsBusters.

Goodman, who regularly defends Planned Parenthood, has never spoken out about the organization’s covering of sexual assault crimes.

3. Michelle Goldberg – columnist and Planned Parenthood board member

Michelle Goldberg became an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times in 2017. Previously, she was a columnist at Slate, and a radio and TV commentator appearing in The New Yorker, Newsweek, The Nation, The New Republic, The Guardian and other publications. She was also a keynote speaker for Planned Parenthood, attended several other Planned Parenthood events, and sat on the board of Southwest & Central Florida Planned Parenthood. No bias here, huh?

Rather than stand with sexual assault victims and expose Planned Parenthood, Goldberg defends them.

4. Linda Greenhouse – Pulitzer prize winner and Planned Parenthood keynote speaker

Greenhouse is a New York Times journalist who has also keynoted for Planned Parenthood Houston.

 

Linda Greenhouse keynote for Planned Parenthood

According to a report by the Washington Post, Greenhouse wrote in her book “Just a Journalist: On the Press, Life and the Spaces Between,” that she regularly donates to Planned Parenthood and wasn’t content to just allow Planned Parenthood to deduct a monthly contribution from her bank account:

It was important to me to write a check every month and sign my name. It was the signature of a citizen. The stories that appeared under my byline, on abortion and all other subjects, were the work of a journalist. If anyone ever thought those failed to measure up to professional standards, they never told me or anyone else.

One look at Greenhouse’s writings should tell you all you need to know about whether her pro-abortion ideology informs her journalism.

5. Anna Quindlen – Pulitzer prize winner and Planned Parenthood Federation of America board member

Quindlen is a former columnist at The New York Times who won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism. She recently attended PP’s 100th gala and sits on the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Board. Need I say more?

6. Sheryl WuDunn – writer, lecturer, and Planned Parenthood keynote speaker

WuDunn writes for the New York Times and lectures on political and social topics. She is married to husband Nicholas Kristof, who also writes for the New York Times.

She has been a keynote speaker for many Planned Parenthood events.

To date, Ross and Markstrom have yet to call out Planned Parenthood’s real naughty deeds.

9. Dee Dee Myers – political analyst, editor, and Planned Parenthood keynote speaker

Myers was the keynote speaker at a Florida Planned Parenthood event. According to HuffPo, Myers is a political analyst, commentator and contributing editor to Vanity Fair, and lecturer on politics. After leaving her position as White House Press Secretary under President Clinton, Myers took a spot on CNBC political talk show, “Equal Time.” She brags that her work has appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, Time Magazine, O, the Oprah Magazine, the Washington Post, Politico and the Los Angeles Times.

Interestingly, none of that “work” includes any real serious investigations into Planned Parenthood.

10. Cynthia Tucker – Pulitzer prize winner, editor, and Planned Parenthood awardee

Tucker describes herself as a “veteran newspaper journalist, Pulitzer Prize winner and a highly-regarded commentator on TV and radio news shows.” Tucker was also editorial page editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper for 17 years and is a Planned Parenthood Maggie Award recipient. In 2014, Tucker, along with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Glamour Magazine, was “honored” by Planned Parenthood.

And none of them have spoken out about any of Planned Parenthood’s scandals other than to defend them.

11. Kate Sheppard – editor and Planned Parenthood awardee

Sheppard is currently an editor at the Huffington Post and previously reported for Mother Jones, Grist, and the American Prospect. She accepted a Planned Parenthood award and has never reported on Planned Parenthood’s coverup of child sexual abuse.

The list goes on and on.

Media elites are more eager to prop up Planned Parenthood than courageously take the side of young sexual abuse victims to expose Planned Parenthood. We can only hope that one day, light will shine on Planned Parenthood and the media complicity machine that protects them.

Lisa Robertson “I am pro-choice only when it’s God’s choice”

Posted in Duck Dynasty with tags , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2015 by saynsumthn

A HuffPo interview with Duck Dynasty couple Al and Lisa Robertson has gone viral after the TV family member said that she was pro-choice, but regrets her abortion at 16 years-old.

Lisa now says that her words are being taken the wrong way because, she says, she opposes abortion and is, “pro-choice only when it’s God’s choice.”

Lisa and Al Robertson abortion

Nancy Redd spoke with the couple about their book, A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption and specifically covered the section of the book where Lisa speaks about her abortion.

Lisa Robertson abortion Huffo

The questions were no doubt leading. Lisa appears to regret her abortion and even Redd acknowledged that she had repented of the abortion.

Redd asked Lisa, “When you look at that choice and that option don’t you think that every woman should have that choice and that ability?”

Lisa responded by telling Redd that not a day goes by that she doesn’t think about her baby, “At the time that was the answer that I sought. As I sit here today, that’s not the answer I would have chosen had I known better, had I been more mature in my thinking.”

Lisa told Redd that she doesn’t feel like she should have had that “choice” and that, “God is the only Person that has the choice to take a life, or to bring into the world a life.”

It was after that statement that Redd asked her if she would consider herself “pro-choice.

Lisa paused for a few seconds and then responded, “Yes, I would.”

If you watch the entire interview you will scratch your head on how a woman who so adamantly regretted her abortion could call herself pro-choice.

For pro-lifers this is puzzling. Her words do not match what she actually stated. But, one has to take her at her word. Unless, of course, you realize that most people are not that media savvy. HuffPo on the other hand drives an abortion agenda. So anything they can grasp to make a Duck Dynasty woman appear pro-choice is a win win for their ideology.

The question haunted me for hours, until I did some checking online.

I discovered that Lisa felt she was entrapped by the HuffPo interviewer and what Lisa meant by saying she was pro-choice was that she was for God’s choice, at least that is what she said in clarification on her Facebook page.

Dear Friends, please be in prayer for me today. I am fretful over the interview with HuffPostLive yesterday. I am pro-choice only when it’s Gods choice. I was so flustered over her questions & just wasn’t aware that she was trying to trap me. Call me naive. I had an abortion @ 16 & I clearly stated that it was a decision that I’ve regretted all my life. I also stated that I thought God was the only person qualified to take a life because he made the life. Maybe I will get to minister to people who otherwise would shut me out but I am clearly pro-God & pro-life. I hate entrapment but failed to see it happening.”

Abortion Giant thanks What’s the Scoop ice cream shop for their support

Posted in Planned Parenthood Event, Planned Parenthood fundraisers with tags , , , , , , , on July 24, 2014 by saynsumthn

After this blog exposed the Ice Cream Fundraiser by What’s the Scoop ice scream shop, the media went nuts.

Whats The Scoop Ice ScreamWTS7_vcjvsb

The ice cream shop, owned by Jodie Ostrovsky , held a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon which they advertised on their facebook page:

PP Oregon Ice Cream

What’s the Scoop promised to create a special flavor for Planned Parenthood.

After the event was exposed the shop’s owner claimed she was receiving a ton of calls and negative posts on the Whats the Scoop facebook page.

Whats the Scoop flavors

And the media went nuts….pro-abortion media outlets like the Huffington Post blames the backlash on the fact that we called the new flavor : BLOOD and SCREAM. That was picked up by Life News who reported the story as well:

PP HuffPO Ice Cream story 3405_5916649760902142123_n

Whats the Scoop’s owner responded to the controversy by stating, “ We’re proud to have supported Planned Parenthood, because they provide a much-needed service to women in our community and all over the country.”

Following all the flack, Planned Parenthood posted this thank you to What’s the Scoop on their facebook page:

PP Ice Cream THanks

Apparently What’s the Scoop is happy that they helped finance the death of children which Planned Parenthood aborts. Children who might have been future customers of their ice cream parlor ! Shameful !

Alarmist Population Bomb author suggests cannibalism as possibility to “overpopulation”

Posted in Ehrlich, Zombie with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2014 by saynsumthn

Paul Ehrlich a radically pro-abortion population control professor of “Ethics” from Stanford has claimed overpopulation could lead to humanity having to eat the bodies of the dead.

We will soon be asking is it perfectly okay to eat the bodies of your dead because we’re all so hungry?,‘ he told HuffPost live host Josh Zepps.

Paul Ehrlich Huffpo

Ehrlich tells Zepps that “Ethics is hardly discussed in our media…How much do we really care about future generations…

Zepps asked Ehrlich what he would do if he were “Emperor of the World.”

Ehrlich replies, “The first thing I would do is make every possible move to give women full equal rights and opportunities. And give every sexually active person complete access to modern contraception and where necessary, backed up abortion…”

Ehrlich says that current population trends are on a course that could leave cannibalism as one of the only options.

Ehrlich claimed that scarcity of resources will get so bad that humans will need to drastically change our eating habits and agriculture.

He added that humanity is ‘moving in that direction with a ridiculous speed.

‘In other words between now and 45 years from now, 2.5 billion people will be added to the planet.

‘We are moving towards resource wars.

population-bomb

Ehrlich is widely known for his 1968 publication of ‘The Population Bomb’ which called for ‘population control’ to prevent global crises from overpopulation.

But Ehrlich has been predicting this gloom and doom for years:

Ehrlich PP

‘In the 1970’s the world will undergo famines – hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death,’ he predicted.

‘our children will inherit a totally different world, a world in which the standards, politics, and economics of the 1960’s are dead.’

His solution- Population Control….abortion…sterilization….and yes….infanticide..

The author of the 1972 book the Population bomb has told Raw Story that giving people the right to have as many children as they want is “a bad idea.”

Giving people the right to have as many people as many children that they want is, I think, a bad idea,” Ehrlich told Raw Story. “It’s not giving people the right to have as many children as they want, it’s giving people the right to control their reproduction so that they don’t have so many children that their children’s and grandchildren’s lives are in danger.”

“Nobody, in my view, has the right to have 12 children or even three unless the second pregnancy is twins,” Ehrlich continued. “That may be a hard-nosed view, but if you look at the entire situation, it’s crystal clear if we keep the populations of the rich growing, then the poor aren’t going to have a chance, and eventually, the descendants of the rich aren’t going to have a chance either.

Paul Ehrlich May 2014

In a recent speech at Macquarie University he said, “For example, having a kid is one thing. If you add a second kid or you have the choice of adding a second kid or buying four hummers, you’re doing much more environmental damage by having the second kid than buying four hummers. Because, of course, besides all the consumption that that child is going to have – the hummers don’t reproduce.”

Hope on Eath Paul Ehrlich

Paul R. Ehrlich has authored another book with Michael Charles Tobias. In Hope on Earth both Ehrlich and Tobias argue that we are on the verge of environmental catastrophe, as the human population continues to grow without restraint and without significant attempts to deal with overconsumption and the vast depletion of resources and climate problems it creates. They both believe that the impact of a human society on its environment is the direct result of its population size, and through their dialogue they break down the complex social problems that are wrapped up in this idea and attempts to overcome it, hitting firmly upon many controversial topics such as circumcision, religion, reproduction, abortion, animal rights, diet, and gun control.

Chemicals water tweet

A Tweet placed on Huffpo’s feed reads, “Just put chemicals in the water so that us men can’t reproduce. BAM problem solved.”

To that tweeter I say your suggestion is an old idea that has been proposed many times- read here.
