While Planned Parenthood publicly claims that abortions late in pregnancy are done mainly for severe fetal anomalies, undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress show Planned Parenthood abortionists discussing their expected weekly numbers of late-term, healthy “specimens” for procurement agencies and researchers – not ones with anomalies.

Planned Parenthood leadership, speaking to investigators they thought were fetal body parts harvesters, admitted that the amount of late-term abortions performed by Planned Parenthood is on the rise – and that this is intentional.

Planned Parenthood Staffer Hits Girl With Car, Cited for DUI

• A Planned Parenthood abortion business staffer in Sioux Falls, South Dakota was charged with careless driving and Driving Under the Influence of alcohol in connection with a recent traffic incident.

As the Argus Leader newspaper reports, Carmen Toft, 32, a Planned Parenthood official and Democratic candidate for the state legislature, ran into a 7-year-old girl with her vehicle on may 22. Sioux Falls Police spokesman Sam Clemens confirmed the incident and said Toft was charged with careless driving.

As the paper reports:
Toft was driving south on Chicago and stopped at the intersection’s stop sign just after 8 p.m., Clemens said. Toft reportedly told police the child, who was going east through the crosswalk on Eighth Street, “came out of nowhere” on a bicycle as she began driving again.

The child was knocked to the ground and taken to the hospital for possible internal injuries, Clemens said. Toft was cited for careless driving and DUI, he said, but it was treated as a standard traffic offense and no SFPD case report was created.

Toft refused to take a breath test for alcohol on the scene, Clemens said. Anyone cited for DUI in the South Dakota is required to take a blood test, however.
The abortion business staffer, who has been instrumental in working against South Dakota’s twp attempts to ban abortions, refused comment when the Argus Leader asked for an interview. Toft is the South Dakota Public Affairs Manager at Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota.

Ironically, on her Twitter feed, Toft yesterday encouraged a friend to “drive safely” when told her friend was headed out on the interstate on a spare tire.

Democratic Senators will not seek re-election in 2010; Dodd replaced by Pro-Choice Dem Richard Blumenthal ?

Democratic Sens. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut and Byron Dorgan of North Dakota won’t seek re-election this fall, party officials say, bringing to four the number of open Senate seats Democrats must defend to protect their majority. (Jan. 6)

One note about “tax funded abortion and Health Care for everyone” pushing Senator Chris Dodd – He Voted NO on defining unborn child as eligible for SCHIP.
CONGRESSIONAL SUMMARY: To require that legislation to reauthorize SCHIP include provisions codifying the unborn child regulation. Amends the definition of the term “targeted low-income child” to provide that such term includes the period from conception to birth, for eligibility for child health assistance.

SUPPORTER’S ARGUMENT FOR VOTING YES:Sen. ALLARD: This amendment will codify the current unborn child rule by amending the SCHIP reauthorization reserve fund. This amendment will clarify in statute that the term “child” includes the period from conception to birth. This is a pro-life vote.OPPONENT’S ARGUMENT FOR VOTING NO: Sen. FEINSTEIN: We already clarified SCHIP law that a pregnant woman’s coverage under SCHIP law is optional. We made it obligatory so every pregnant woman has the advantage of medical insurance. This amendment undoes that. It takes it away from the woman and gives it to the fetus. Now, if a pregnant woman is in an accident, loses the child, she does not get coverage, the child gets coverage. We already solved the problem. If you cover the pregnant woman, you cover her fetus. What Senator Allard does is remove the coverage from the pregnant woman and cover the fetus.LEGISLATIVE OUTCOME:Amendment rejected, 46-52

Chris Dodd To Leave Senate; Pro-Choice Dem Blumenthal to Announce Candidacy

According to the pro-abortion blog RH Reality Check:

Dodd’s departure clears the path for the Senate campaign of Connecticut’s State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, also a Pro-abortion Democrat.

Blumenthal has been a strong supporter of women’s reproductive rights at the state level. In 2006, for example, he helped pressure Walmart to stock emergency contraception (EC) by threatening to withdraw coverage by Connecticut’s insurance plans of Walmart prescriptions unless the corporation complied with medical and public health practice in filling prescriptions for EC.

In January 2009, he led a multistate lawsuit against the Bush administration to block an impending federal rule that “gravely jeopardized women’s access to vital medical services, including birth control.” Dubbed the “midnight regulations” and slated to take effect on the day of President Obama’s inauguration, Blumenthal argued that the rule undercut Connecticut’s contraception laws and jeopardized billions of dollars in federal public health money. Blumenthal’s lawsuit — joined by six other states — alleges that this Provider Conscience Rule violates federal law, women’s rights and states’ sovereign rights to enforce their own laws.
