Child porn, harassment, and rape: Is Planned Parenthood a haven for sex offenders?

Planned Parenthood’s political organizer president Cecile Richards recently expressed concern about accusations brought by women claiming to have been sexually harassed by men in power. While these accusations and admissions are greatly concerning, it seems Richards has overlooked her own back yard, so to speak. Plenty of Planned Parenthood employees have had their own share of troubles in this arena.

CALIFORNIA

Jorge Martin-Santana

According to Sacramento Superior Court records, Jorge Humberto Martin Santana was arrested in 2013 and charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery, under criminal code PC 243.4(E)(1), which reads in part:A California jury found a Planned Parenthood medical assistant guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery after inappropriately touching a patient during the course of his duties at Planned Parenthood.

Any person who touches an intimate part of another person, if the touching is against the will of the person touched, and is for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse, is guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery…

In February of 2015, Martin-Santana pleaded “not guilty,” but on April 9, 2015, he was sentenced to 140 days in a sheriff’s work project and three years of probation.

Timothy Liveright Planned Parenthood abortionist accused of sexual harassment

In 2013, Planned Parenthood RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics, told blogger Jill Stanek that abortionist Timothy Fouch Liveright had sexually harassed employees and patients.

“I have noted Dr. Liveright inappropriately look up and down patients as well as staff members in a sexual kind of way. He actually stands back with a grin and slowly directs his eyes up and down a patient’s body.”In 2013, Planned Parenthood RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics, told blogger Jill Stanek that abortionist Timothy Fouch Liveright had sexually harassed employees and patients.

Jayne resigned from Planned Parenthood after her letters of complaint to management were ignored. The nurse also said she observed Liveright “acting condescending to African American patients by implying they were ignorant,” among other charges.

Liveright worked for several Planned Parenthood locations.

A Delaware Medical Licensure complaint filed against Liveright claims Planned Parenthood reprimanded him for “unprofessional, disrespectful, and inappropriate” conduct, including “yelling, screaming, and cursing” in front of employees and patients and “sexual harassment of female employees.”

According to USA Today, Liveright played an abortionist in the 2010 Hollywood movie, “Blue Valentine“:

In 2013, media reported that Liveright surrendered his license to practice medicine in Delaware, but a November 2017 query reveals that Liveright’s Pennsylvania license is still active.

FLORIDA

In July 2008, the Miami Herald reported that Planned Parenthood’s national office cut ties with several Florida centers after accusations of “terrible mismanagement and possibly fraud,” including alleged sexual harassment against a former CEO:

Miami Herald Planned Parenthood cuts ties with 5 clinics, sexual harassment

The Herald stated:

The disaffiliation allowed the national organization to wash its hands of the local chapter once known as Planned Parenthood of South Palm Beach and Broward Counties.

The chapter is dealing with many problems, including harassment complaints and possible misuse of nearly $450,000 — slightly less than they received in public funding in 2005.

ILLINOIS

Several female patients claimed Illinois Planned Parenthood physician, Carl E. Burpo, “engaged in improper conduct during a gynecological examination” at Burpo’s office and at Planned Parenthood, where he worked part-time. He was eventually indicted on 21 counts of sexual misconduct.

One complaint alleged that Burpo fondled patients’ “breasts and in some cases made other sexual advances toward seven patients in 1990 and 1991 while examining them.”

A 1993 report states that Burpo was suspended from practicing at Planned Parenthood. A jury acquitted him in two of the cases but in February 1995, the Illinois Supreme Court reinstated eight of the criminal sexual assault charges.

His medical license was suspended in 1995.

Operation Rescue notes, “Why Hardy eventually left Planned Parenthood is unknown, but a Boston Globe article published on May 1, 2014, indicates that Hardy’s abhorrent sexual misconduct stretched back as far as 20 years. Hardy was working for Planned Parenthood during that time, in which Planned Parenthood abortion patients were likely exposed to molestation by Hardy as well.”

MINNESOTA

In 1987, the Minnesota Board of Medical Examiners revoked the license of Hideo D. Mori for alleged sexual improprieties involving 10 patients over 23 years in Grand Meadow. A report states that administrative law judge Allan W. Klein found Mori had “inappropriately massaged some of his patients, telling one of them… that he needed to stimulate her genital area to fit her properly for a diaphragm.”

Klein wrote that Mori claimed to have romantic feelings toward the patient, caressing her body and kissing her to make her sexually aroused, understanding “that it was not medically indicated.”

Soon after, Thornton apologized and resigned from Planned Parenthood.1. In 2012, Tony Ray Thornton (pictured right), the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Lubbock, was arrested for exposing his genitals to a 43-year-old male in a Texas park.

“I deeply regret creating a situation in my personal life that potentially creates a distraction from these goals, and I apologize to the people in the Lubbock community for the incident,” Thornton stated. “I will work with my attorney through the appropriate court process to correct any misinformation and take responsibility for errors.”

According to the county clerk, the charges in Thornton’s case #2012-469-378 were dismissed on February 28, 2013, in the “interest of justice.”

In 2010, Thornton helped Planned Parenthood purchase a closed facility — renamed Planned Parenthood Women’s Health Center, Inc. — after the owners retired.

2. In 2005, Planned Parenthood employee Aymara Castro said Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas subjected her to “unlawful sexual harassment, and to disparate terms, conditions and privileges of employment because of her sex.” She won her claim, filed with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which found Planned Parenthood had “failed to take corrective action to stop the harassment and retaliated against her for engaging in protected activity.”

Black Church Leaders from COGIC pray outside Planned Parenthood

Bishops and pastors gather at Missouri Planned Parenthood to condemn Black genocide

On November 11, 2017, a large group of Church of God in Christ (COGIC) bishops and pastors gathered outside Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to pray and decry Black genocide in their community as part of the COGIC’s Family Life Campaign, a partnership with Human Coalition. Catherine Davis, founder of the Restoration Project, called the event “historic,” adding, “Many who were out there were bishops. The significance of this was remarkable because of the level of influence each bishop and pastor has within the church and their various communities.”

Catherine Davis

Davis told Live Action News that the pastors and ministry leaders participating in the prayer vigil were attending the COGIC’s annual convocation in St Louis. Although many Black pastors have stood outside Planned Parenthood and abortion facilities around the nation, Davis said she was unaware of a group of clerical leaders of this size participating at one time.

The St. Louis facility commits abortions up to almost 22 weeks and is known for its high number of 911 calls; it has sent at least 65 women to hospital emergency rooms since 2009.

“This location is located between two colleges, where they are targeting Black women,” Davis said in her live Facebook video. “We will not allow Planned Parenthood to target our women and we are taking a stand.”

The attendees from across the nation recognized how abortion was decimating the Black community, Davis said, and the group wanted women entering Planned Parenthood to know that help was available through the COGIC.

Black women pray outside Planned Parenthood

“We’re out here… to encourage women who come here for abortions to chose life instead of death for their unborn babies,” one of the attendees stated.

Another said the group was “prayerfully and peacefully serving women and encouraging them to make a healthy choice for themselves and their children.”

“Not only does abortion affect the woman but it affects everyone around her,” said another member, “And so we just want to make it clear that we stand against abortion today. And, we’re going to continue to be a part of the movement within our lives, within our church, and the community. ”

Others noted that they chose to participate to “pray against genocide” and “pray against population control” and against what Planned Parenthood is doing in the Black community by “aborting our babies.”

Black Bishops denounce Planned Parenthood

 

Bishop Vincent Matthews, president of the International Missions Department for COGIC, estimated the crowd at approximately 150 and described Planned Parenthood as a “lynching spot in St. Louis” where, “they lynch people, mainly Black folks but all kinds of people. Black people, white people, Latinos, Asians….”

Bishop Vincent Matthews prays outside Planned Parenthood

“This is the same city [St. Louis] that Dred Scott came to, to be free and they told him ‘go back and be a slave….’ — that he was not a real person. And they want us to go back to being slaves,” Matthews said.

Bishop Mathews regularly encourages members to adopt children from the foster care system as well as babies in danger of being aborted. “It’s about going home, rolling up your sleeves, and taking care of a child,” he noted.

According to Davis, Bishop Matthews also told the crowd that the “Church of God in Christ will not be a Negro Project denomination.” Matthews was referring to eugenicist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s “Negro Project,” pushing birth control on the Black community.

In a letter that Sanger penned to her financier Clarence Gamble, the Planned Parenthood founder schemed to use Black ministers to introduce their congregants to the “Negro Project” agenda because, she said, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” and if it did, these ministers could “straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Pastor Dean Nelson, National Outreach Director at Human Coalition, attended the prayer vigil. Human Coalition has partneredwith the COGIC’s Family Life Campaign to “advance their common mission of making abortion unthinkable and unavailable in America.” Nelson called the Church of God in Christ “one of the most Christ centered, socially conscience Black denominations in the country,” and explained to rally participants how abortion disproportionately impacts the Black community. He also pointed out that in New York, where Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger opened her first facility, more Black babies are aborted than are born.

Dean Nelson of Human Coalition prays outside Planned Parenthood

“And, her [Margaret Sanger’s] words to Clarence Gamble, head of Proctor and Gamble at the time, was ‘we don’t want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And she used ministers in her diabolical plot.”

Nelson said the COGIC ministers were taking a stand against this eugenic, racist agenda: “We’re engaging with men and women of God in this country who happen to be African American that are saying we’re standing up and saying ‘NO MORE,’ not on our watch.”

Planned Parenthood and the media usually describe Sanger as a “birth control pioneer,” but she also met with members of the Klan, advocated eugenics, and supported the use of sterilization to rid the planet of the “unfit” (which, in her mind, heavily included minority populations). Sanger wrote of her meeting with the Klan 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…. I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…. In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.

But Planned Parenthood‘s ties to eugenics go well beyond their founder Margaret Sanger — and its diabolical agenda of targeting the Black community for abortion has had staggering results.

For years, pro-lifers have contended that abortion disproportionately affects the African American community. They point to US Census Bureau data estimates, which show that in 2014, while Blacks made up approximately 13 percent of the US population, CDC figures for 2014 reveal that non-Hispanic Black women accounted for 36 percent of reported abortions for “race/ethnicity.” And, according to abortion numbers reported by Planned Parenthood‘s former “special affiliate,” The Guttmacher Institute (founded by a leader of the American Eugenics Society), 28 percent of abortions reported to them in 2014 were committed on Black women.

A recent survey published by Guttmacher (which is funded in part by taxpayers) revealed that Black women had a higher rate of prior abortions, because the availability of taxpayer-funded abortions were a contributing factor for women who had at least one prior abortion.

Guttmacher Prior Abortion Survey

 

The report found that Black women had a higher rate of prior abortions: “Slightly more than half of Black abortion patients had a prior abortion (54%), higher than any other racial and ethnic group.”

Members of the COGIC denounced the genocidal effects of abortion, holding signs that read, “COGIC DENOUNCES BLACK GENOCIDE…. ABORTION IS THE #1 KILLER OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE NATION.”

“We’re here to say that they matter…We are here and we are going to fight.”

As the members walked the sidewalk in front of the abortion facility you could hear them lovingly crying out to offer the women going to Planned Parenthood assistance. You could also hear them crying out to Jesus and praying that He would end the genocide. Many in the group also prayed for the doctors and nurses that worked inside the Planned Parenthood facility.

“We had to be here… we’ve joined the fight,” said Pastor Michael Gantz from Las Vegas. “We feel very moved to stand up against this genocide…. We can’t just talk about it – we’ve got to be about it.”

Bishop Matthews added, “We want women who come here to know we don’t condemn you…. If you don’t have options, we will adopt your baby…. just don’t have an abortion.”

Planned Parenthood has a history of failing to protect patient privacy under HIPAA

Posted in Center for Medical Progress, HIPPA, Planned Parenthood HPPA with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2017 by saynsumthn

Americans are told that abortion is a “right” based on privacy. But when abortion providers like Planned Parenthood violate the privacy of women, abortion-friendly media and politicians are silent.

Planned Parenthood receives half a billion dollars annually from taxpayers and claims the majority of these dollars are Medicaid reimbursements. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), recipients of government programs that pay for health care, like Medicaid, must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act known as HIPAA.

But is Planned Parenthood following HIPAA laws? Multiple instances of privacy breaches at Planned Parenthood say no.

The latest video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) further confirms what many already know all too well: when it comes to the privacy of abortion patients, Planned Parenthood is anything but trustworthy. Former Stem Express procurement technician, Holly O’Donnell, told CMP that Planned Parenthood revealed private patient medical information to third party contractors at fetal tissue procurement agency StemExpress in order to meet the company’s quotas for harvesting body parts from Planned Parenthood abortions:

O’Donnell said Planned Parenthood staff provided StemExpress contractors with private medical information of pregnant women coming into Planned Parenthood: “We’d go to the head nurse, let the nurses know, hey, this is what I’m looking for today. They’d give you a sheet of the appointments, which women were coming in, and it would tell you how many patients, what time they were coming in, their name, and if they knew how far along they were.”

Clearly, disclosing patient names is a violation of HIPAA.

According to HHS, the Privacy Rule protects all “individually identifiable health information held or transmitted by a covered entity or its business associate, in any form or media, whether electronic, paper, or oral… Individually identifiable health information includes many common identifiers (e.g., name, address, birth date, Social Security Number).”

In 2016, the Washington Times reported, “The day before abortions were scheduled to take place… StemExpress was notified by fax by the clinics and granted medical files on individual patients.” O’Donnell told CMP that Planned Parenthood handed over a list of patient names and other private information to third party contractors before these patients signed a consent to release their personal information.

O’Donnell also reveals that Planned Parenthood gave StemExpress access to patient medical charts and even to the clinics’ computer network to download patient schedules across the entire Planned Parenthood affiliate. Emails from StemExpress management instruct procurement technicians: “EVERY Friday – please provide schedules for all the clinics you work in,” and, “All computers have access to other clinics.”

While this should shock politicians and media alike, tragically, accusations of carelessness and lack of concern for patient privacy at Planned Parenthood is not new.

In September of 2016, Live Action News released a two-part series exposing the way Planned Parenthood and the general abortion industry recklessly handles patient privacy. In those reports were documented case after case where Planned Parenthood was given a slap on the wrist for violating patient privacy — and in the cases reviewed at that time, no civil penalties had been issued.

CMS states that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights “enforces the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules. Violations may result in civil monetary penalties. In some cases, criminal penalties enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice may apply.”

Breaches expose thousands of individuals

1. Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho (PPGWNI): 10,700 individuals exposed

A review of archived privacy breaches on file with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), which affect more than 500 patients, reveals that in August 2016, Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho (PPGWNI), reported a breach which exposed 10,700 individuals.

2. Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio: 5,000 individuals exposed

Another breach report states that on October 1, 2014, Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio disposed of binders containing protected health information (PHI) for 5000 individuals, including names, dates of birth, lab results, and medications. Exactly what occurred in the privacy breach? Planned Parenthood’s archived prescription dispensing logs and waived lab test logs were left in an unlocked closet after business hours and a custodian mistakenly put them in a trash dumpster. The following morning, the dumpster was emptied by the trash collector, who took it to be buried with other garbage at a landfill that same day. And, as Planned Parenthood often claims it does when it violates government requirements, Planned Parenthood told the OCR that they conducted an investigation and re-trained all staff regarding HIPAA policies and procedures.

3. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland: 2,506 individuals exposed

Still under investigation is a July 2016 breach report reported by Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. This breach for “Unauthorized Access/Disclosure” affected 2,506 individuals. No additional information is available from OCR; however, HIPAA Journal reported the following:

The health center permanently closed its doors to patients this April year and the premises was listed for sale and was sold. However, hard copies of patient files were left in the Dubuque health center. In April 2016, individuals entered the medical center and could potentially have viewed and/or copied patient files. The potential breach was discovered by Planned Parenthood on May 6, 2016. The files have now been removed from the premises and have been secured. Planned Parenthood said this was an isolated incident and is not representative of the stringent privacy standards usually maintained by the healthcare organization.

Health Care Compliance Association summarized another case where Planned Parenthood violated privacy of a patient.  In January 2017, HCCA wrote, “a complaint filed against Planned Parenthood alleged that an employee posted a description of the procedure the individual had performed at the clinic on the individual’s public Facebook page.”

In response, HCCA states, “OCR sent Planned Parenthood the regulatory section on reasonable safeguards
and encouraged it to “assess and determine whether there may have been noncompliance… and if so, to take steps to ensure such noncompliance does not occur in the future.”

Other breaches

In addition to those listed above, the following are known instances of privacy breaches at Planned Parenthood:

  • California Planned Parenthood patient reported that following her visit, she received two text messages from an anonymous number, reading, “Damn, you have an STD WOW.”
  • Napa Planned Parenthood receptionist admitted to state officials that she had looked at private patient records because she was curious.
  • Alleged Planned Parenthood patient wrote online, “a worker there told a family member of mine about my privacy.”
  • In 2011, OCR received a complaint alleging that a worker at Planned Parenthood in New York “impermissibly disclosed” the complainant’s health information to her sister’s friend.
  • In 2012, a complainant informed the governing body that she had received a call from Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio asking her to contact them regarding recent test results. During the call, it was determined that she was not the correct patient.
  • In 2013, OCR was notified that Planned Parenthood of Delaware violated the Federal Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information.
  • That same year, Melody Meanor, the former Health Center Manager of Family Planning at Planned Parenthood of Delaware in Wilmington went public to expose the center’s privacy policies. A video and transcript of her statement is available online.
  • In 2013, a complaint was filed against a Planned Parenthood in Chicago, Illinois, which alleged that an employee impermissibly disclosed her private health information to a third party on Facebook.
  • complaint received by OCR in 2014 alleged that a Planned Parenthood in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania, violated the Federal Standards for Privacy Identifiable Health Information after sending a bill for a patient to the wrong person.
  • A 2014 complaint filed with the Texas Medical Board by former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, alleges that a Texas Planned Parenthood e-mailed their abortionist the ultrasound information of their patients — but not in encrypted form.
  • TAB, a records management company working with PPFA for over a decade, identified what they called “some serious problems” with the records of Planned Parenthood of Illinois, which oversees 17 branch locations.

In CMP’s video interview, O’Donnell tells David Daleiden that she has witnessed her colleagues log onto Planned Parenthood’s computers. O’Donnell provided copies of e-mails to CMP to support her claims.

“They would let us look at the physical charts outside the room,” O’Donnell stated, claiming that she was even asked to write in a Planned Parenthood patient’s chart, which she says she refused to do.

So much for privacy at Planned Parenthood.

How many women died from illegal abortions prior to Roe v. Wade?

Posted in Abortion death, Abortion Death List, Abortion History, CDC, Illegal abortion, Planned Parenthood Employee with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2017 by saynsumthn

Pro-abortion professor testifies against Heartbeat Bill using bogus, debunked abortion statistics

Prior to the legalization of abortion, those who sought to legally end the lives of preborn children falsely marketed their position by claiming that women were dying by the thousands (and even millions) from illegal abortions. However, there is absolutely no evidence to back up those figures.

Despite this, those figures continue to be repeated by abortion advocates any time they sense that the so-called “right” to abortion is potentially in jeopardy.

A pro-abortion professor, testifying under oath before Congress, unfortunately used these disputed and highly suspect statistics regarding the number of women who died from illegal abortions in an effort to oppose the federal pro-life Heartbeat bill, HR490, which proposes to stop abortions at a point when it can be documented that the preborn child’s heartbeat can be detected:

Prof Priscilla Smith testifies HR490 Heartbeat abortion bill

In her testimonyProfessor Priscilla Smith claimed that 5,000 women died annually from illegal abortions prior to Roe v. Wade:

Women have been obtaining abortions since the beginning of time, before Roe when abortions were illegal… An estimated 1.2 million women each year still resorted to illegal abortion in the US. As many as 5000 of these women — already born – living, breathing, lungs working, hearts beating, women, many with children at home who depended on them — 5,000 of them died each year as a result of illegal abortions and many more were severely injured. This is the world we would return to if HR490 went into effect….

But the facts don’t agree with Smith’s claims. A 1975 report by National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine, entitled, “Legalized Abortion and the Public Health: Report of a Study,” disputes these statistics (emphasis added):

It is difficult to find credible estimates of the number of deaths associated with illegal abortion. One estimate, which has been frequently quoted, is between 5,000 and 10,000 deaths per year. That is hardly plausible, considering that the total number of deaths of women aged 15-44 from all causes in the United States is approximately 50,000 annually, and the total number of deaths due to abortion reported by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has been below 500 since 1958 and below 100 since 1971.

The 5,000 figure originates from a piecemeal of several sources based largely on assumptions, and comes straight from the largest abortion lobby group in the nation: National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL.)  NARAL’s footnote quotes from a source that allegedly “discussed Dr. Christopher Tietze’s estimate of nearly 8,000 deaths from illegal abortion annually in the United States.” The truth is that Tietze disputed the 5,000 to 10,000 number, as did records of maternal deaths reviewed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the years just prior to national legalization.

NARAL Footnotes on illegal abortion deaths

In fact, in Lawrence Lader’s book “Abortion,” also sourced, he clearly states, “Tietze places the figure nearer 1,000.” But, as Dr. John C. Willke explains in the video below, that trend decreased over time:

Tietze was a senior consultant to the Center for Policy Studies of the Population Council, a radical organization founded by John D. Rockefeller III. That organization’s second president was Frederic Osborn, a founding member of the American Eugenics Society who signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood,” published in her review in April of 1938. (Osborn may have coined Planned Parenthood’s “Every Child a Wanted Child” slogan, and once wrote, “Eugenic goals are most likely attained under a name other than eugenics.”)

In 1967, Dr. Tietze, who was speaking at a conference on abortion sponsored by the Harvard Divinity School and Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation, called the 5,000 illegal abortion deaths, “unmitigated nonsense,” according to a September 13, 1967 article in the Berkshire Eagle.  The paper went on to give substantially fewer numbers by Tietze, writing, “The known deaths attributed to abortion in 1964 were 247 and he thinks it is fairly safe to estimate that the real figure may be double that, even a little more, but certainly no more than a thousand.” Note that Dr. Tietze was no pro-lifer: In 1973, he was awarded Planned Parenthood’s infamousMargaret Sanger Award, named after a eugenicist who gave at least one speech to the Ku Klux Klan.

The Kingsport News reported on that same conference, pointing out that Tietze disputed the reported illegal abortion totals, which some claimed ranged from 200,000 to 1.2 million annually. The paper quotes Tietze as saying, “we have no real basis for guessing which extreme is closer to the truth.”

Tietze disputes illegal abortion deaths, 1967

Tietze, who favored abortion on demand, also opined that legalizing abortion would “not have a big impact on mortality.”

The Register, a Virginia paper, notes in its article entitled, “Supporters of Liberal Abortion Laws use Inflated Statistics, Expert says,” that Tietze suggested that the larger numbers (5,000 to 10,000) were made up to scare politicians into legalizing abortion. “The higher estimates are made by people who feel in order to raise sympathy for liberalized abortion laws they have to make people afraid.”

Tietze Illegal Abortion Deaths Inflated 1967

Tietze was right.

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the early founders of NARAL (then known as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws), revealed that he and his colleagues fabricated the large numbers of deaths from illegal abortion in an attempt to sway public opinion toward making abortion legal.

In his book, “The Abortion Papers,” Dr. Nathanson admitted that the 5,000 to 10,000 figure which was fed “to the public and the media in the late 1960’s,” was fabricated because it was a “nice, round, shocking figure.” And, just like they do today, the media — willingly and with no documentation — repeated that figure with no demand for proof.

However, there was data available, and it didn’t support those fabricated figures.

On October 19, 1959, Mary S. Calderone, a medical director of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, presented a paper before the Maternal and Child Health Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA) at the Eighty-Seventh Annual Meeting in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where she also gave far fewer numbers than Professor Smith:

In 1957 there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind. In New York City in 1921 there were 144 abortion deaths, in 1951 there were only 15; and, while the abortion death rate was going down so strikingly in that 30-year period, we know what happened to the population and the birth rate.

In 1967, New York Assemblyman, Albert Blumenthal, who sponsored a law to legalize abortion that year, was quoted by the media as claiming that between 35 and 60 deaths from illegal abortions were reported in New York City annually. That same year, an Illinois Health Director by the name of Dr. Herbert Ratner called the 5,000 to 10,000 figure “outlandish,” noting, “This hardly leaves room for deaths from other causes.”

1967 article Illegal abortion Chicago Tribune

Dr. Ratner also correctly warned that the liberalization of abortion, which he called “exterminative medicine,” would start a dangerous trend in medicine — a prophetic insight America has sadly seen come true.

By 1969, the very first abortion surveillance report was published by the Centers for Disease Control, noting a “lack of accurate incidence, prevalence, morbidity and mortality data” on abortion. At that time, five states had passed abortion legislation and 24 others had bills under review. According to this same CDC report, in 1966, the National Center for Health Statistics reported 189 maternal deaths from abortion complications.  And, while no one would diminish those numbers, they are a far cry from the 5,000 touted by Professor Smith.

By 1970, the CDC reported that in just a six month period (July to December), out of sixteen reported abortions in New York City, eight women — yes, HALF — had died from legal (not illegal) abortions. In total, the 1970 report states that 25 women died in New York City (where abortion had been liberalized), and eleven of those were from illegal abortions. The report also noted that Black and Puerto Rican women suffered higher legal abortion mortality rates.

According to that CDC document, “although there was substitution of legal for illegal abortion deaths, no significant decrease in total abortion mortality occurred following institution of the new law….”

CDC Abortion Deaths, 1970

In 1972, the year prior to national legalization, CDC reports revealed that deaths from illegal abortion were nothing close to Professor Smith’s 5,000 figure. In this table from the CDC report (shown below), just 39 women died from illegal abortion in 1972 while 24 died from legal abortion.

CDC Abortion deaths 1972 to 1990

Live Action News previously documented that the majority of illegal abortions were performed by physicians, and many of those same doctors went on to perform legal abortions, some of whom have seriously injured and even killed women. But, today, instead of protecting the women who are being butchered or are dying from legal abortion, advocates like Professor Smith spew made up numbers from the illegal abortion days.

It would appear that abortion advocates do not actually care about the safety of women or even about real statistics; they care only about legalizing abortion at any cost.

Planned Parenthood staffers arrested for: theft, embezzlement, shop lifting

Planned Parenthood staffer charged with felony embezzlement

A fired Planned Parenthood staffer has been charged with felony embezzlement in Oklahoma County District Court, according to a local media outlet. Kelly Lee Smith, 38, worked at Planned Parenthood’s first facility in the state to offer abortions, located in Warr Acres. A report published by Newsok.com said the abortion staffer was arrested October 11, 2017, after she allegedly used a Planned Parenthood credit card to buy lingerie, hotel rooms, amusement park attractions, and a cruise.

Mugshot: Planned Parenthood staffer Kelly Lee Smith

Authorities allege that between May and August of 2017, Smith fraudulently charged over $23,000 across nine states and Mexico. According to NewsOk.com, Planned Parenthood fired Smith on August 28. The paper reported that additional unauthorized credit card charges by Smith included clothing, pet supplies, beauty products, waxing services, electronics, pedicures, home decor, child care, and fast food, according to the affidavit.

Police reported Smith embezzled an additional $2,424 in cash that was supposed to be deposited into the Planned Parenthood bank account, the paper added.

Smith is not the first Planned Parenthood staffer to be accused of theft.

Planned Parenthood staffer sentenced Buffalo News

In July of 2013, a Planned Parenthood employee who worked as the organization’s accountant pled guilty to second-degree grand larceny after stealing over $100,000 from the organization.  WIVP reported at the time, that between August 2012 and March 2013, 44-year-old Melissa Kwoka forged checks from Planned Parenthood of Western New York to herself and her husband, according to a criminal accusation by the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.

Melissa Kowka

Planned Parenthood employee forged checks

According to the Buffalo News, Kwoka was originally sentenced to six years in jail and five years probation on the contingency that she repay $102,733 to the abortion corporation. The paper reports that, “The judge ordered her to make monthly payments for 10 years of $647.78 to Planned Parenthood to cover $77,733 of the stolen amount. The judge also ordered $208.33 monthly payments to M&T Bank, where the checks were drawn, to cover $25,000 the bank paid Planned Parenthood for failing to catch a portion of the thefts.”

However, after failing to abide by the terms and pay the stolen funds back, in June of 2015, Kwoka was sentenced to three years in prison.

Melissa Kwoka sentenced

Why this thief was hired by Planned Parenthood, which receives over half a billion dollars from the taxpayer each year, is a mystery to begin with. Live Action News previously reported that Kwoka had three previous convictions for theft offenses before her employment with the abortion business. In addition, Kwoka was accused of stealing over five hundred dollars from a friend’s bank account while on bail after her embezzlement conviction.

David Nova

In 2011, a Planned Parenthood executive in Virginia was jailed on charges he stole wine from a Roanoke county store. David Nova, vice president of Planned Parenthood Health Systems in Roanoke, was charged with three counts of petty larceny. According to Roanoke.com, which reported the story at the time, “The charges stem from bottles of wine Nova took through a self-checkout line at the Cave Spring Kroger. The incidents occurred on two separate dates in January, according to online court records.”

Nova is known for defending Planned Parenthood after Live Action undercover investigations revealed Planned Parenthood staffers helping an actor posing as a pimp obtain abortions for minor girls. (Video below)

According to a report published by Life News, Nova claimed to have reported the incident to police after the “pimp” left his facility:

On February 4, David Nova, vice president for Planned Parenthood Health Systems Inc, told the News Virginian that ‘police were notified after the man left.’

‘The employees on these edited tapes in Roanoke and Charlottesville acted professionally in their interactions with the fake patient,’ Nova said in a released statement. ‘In both cases, they promptly reported the incidents to their supervisors.’

But FOIA’d documents obtained later by Live Action indicate that this was not true.

For his crime, Nova was ordered by a judge to serve three weekends in the Roanoke County Jail. But, according to media reports, the charges were dismissed after Nova completed his jail time. Nova’s attorney called his arrest “personal” and said it has nothing to do with his job.

In 2004, Nova, then CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Blue Ridge received Planned Parenthood’s “Jimmy Award,” to “help advance the Vision for 2025 by rewarding bold and creative thinking.”

A newsletter published by Planned Parenthood Health Systems since the incident indicates that this did not affect his standing with Planned Parenthood. In fact, Nova’s LinkedIn page currently shows that he is employed as VP of Communications and Strategic Initiatives for Planned Parenthood Health Systems, Inc., although the page may not have been updated.

In 2008, a Rhode Island ABC affiliate reported that the 59-year-old CEO of a Planned Parenthood in that state had been caught shoplifting at the Warwick Mall.

Planned Parenthood staffer accused of shop lifting

Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island President and CEO Miriam Inocencio, a veteran of the organization, was caught by police after allegedly stealing an $89 Liz Claiborne blouse from the local Macy’s Department Store, the report claimed.

990 filed by Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island in 2010 shows that the former CEO earned nearly $100,000 in salary and compensation in 2008.

Inocencio’s LinkedIn page reveals that she served as President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island from 1997 to 2008. She previously worked at Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s International division from 1984 to 1992.

The Planned Parenthood president pleaded out in court and agreed to reimburse the store. Inocencio told the media that she later voluntary resigned from Planned Parenthood but added that she was proud of what she accomplished during her 13 years as their director.

Planned Parenthood CEO Theft

In 2002, Inocencio, a black Cuban-American woman, indicated that she was originally hired by the abortion business because of her ethnicity.

In a piece she penned to Non-profit Quarterly, Inocencio wrote that prior to Planned Parenthood hiring her in the mid-1990’s, the staff at the Rhode Island Planned Parenthood was overwhelmingly white.

“For many years the PPRI staff and board had, with few exceptions, remained overwhelmingly white and middle-class and almost exclusively English speaking,” she said.

Inocencio added that “pressure from external systems […] along with other motivations resulted in the board’s decision to hire a CEO of color, and this made for a relatively smooth transition to a multicultural organization.”

What those “other motivations” were was not specified but as Live Action News has well documented, Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger made sure that Planned Parenthood was knee deep in eugenics. And, the organization’s ties to eugenics continued far beyond their founder, as Live Action News previously documented.

Today, with the help of Planned Parenthood, abortion disproportionately affects minority Black and Hispanic communities.

In contrast to Planned Parenthood staffers who are involved in theft, former Planned Parenthood whistleblowers have exposed the abortion corporation’s own trouble with numbers by accusing the tax-funded organization of Medicaid fraud. And, as Live Action News has documented, Planned Parenthood has been cited in several states for overbilling abuses and Medicaid fraud. In addition, Planned Parenthood has been cited for violating patient privacy and has been exposed for failing to report child sexual abuse.

Former Planned Parenthood exec exposes how PP’s success is linked to power and money

Top Planned Parenthood executive: Major government funds keep us in business

Cecile Richards

A former top executive for Planned Parenthood once admitted that the abortion corporation’s success is linked to power and money, and that taxpayer dollars enabled the abortion corporation to recruit, hire and pay their top staffers six-digit salaries — all while actual health services and patients declined.

For years, pro-life groups have documented that the hundreds of millions in government dollars Planned Parenthood receives are fungible, acting to free up other dollars which would normally be used for salaries, facility rent, and general overhead. Though Planned Parenthood leads the American public to believe that those taxpayer funds do not pay for abortions or the salaries of staff that commits abortions, top officials at Planned Parenthood, like R. James LeFevre, Jr., knew differently.

LeFevre began his career with Planned Parenthood in 1974 and was considered a mover and shaker inside the organization.

According to his resume, LeFevre worked as Chief Strategic Officer for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) from 1999-2006, as PPFA’s Chief Operating Officer from 1996-1999, as interim co-president of PPFA from 1995-1996, and as executive director of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England from 1977-1995. In other words, he was not a low-level employee, but was heavily involved in the workings of Planned Parenthood as an organization.

James LeFevre, PPFA (Photo credit: Bennington Banner)

In 1992, he authored a booklet called “Redirecting Boards, a New Vision of Governance for Planned Parenthood,” written as a reference for the various PPFA affiliate leaders.

It is there that LeFevre exposed how “the major influx of government funds” became the catalyst behind Planned Parenthood’s ability to recruit its staff. LeFevre writes:

Some 20 years ago the managerial “professionalism” of the executive director (and often the senior staff) began to emerge. This became possible because of the major influx of government funds (primarily federal), providing resources that enabled Planned Parenthood to offer extensive training to incumbents and to hire experienced managers (not just social workers, ministers, or nurses, who did not always have such managerial preparation or experience). This trend continued for other senior staff positions….

In other words, the ability for PPFA to hire top notch staff, executives and board members was directly related to public taxpayer funds.

LeFevre would know. After all, in addition to his many jobs within the abortion corporation, Live Action News previously reported that LeFevre was one of the nine members of PPFA’s “Reinvention Group,” tasked to “literally design PPFA in order to succeed in the era of health care reform.” Or, as the New York Times described it at the time, to change Planned Parenthood to a “broad health organization that could compete in the era of managed care.” But, despite today’s misleading rhetoric, this so-called “reinvention plan” created in the mid 1990’s to morph Planned Parenthood from an abortion facility into a health care agency failed because it barely mentioned abortion.

Live Action News has documented that Planned Parenthood is all about abortion and political organizing, but the scheme to masquerade as a health care organization continues to this day and has made Planned Parenthood executives very wealthy. According to Planned Parenthood’s annual reports, between 1997 and 2004, taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood increased over 65 percent from $165 million (1997) to $272.7 million (2004). Within those same years, abortions also increased a staggering 54 percent from 165,174 to 255,015.

What else increased during that same time period? The salary of PPFA’s president, Gloria Feldt.

Former PPFA president Gloria Feldt

Former PPFA president Gloria Feldt

In 1997, PPFA paid Feldt $245,853, plus $25,000 in expense account and other allowances. By 1999 (just two years later), Feldt was compensated $324,217 plus $16,938 in employee benefits and an additional $68,000 in expense account and other allowances.

Feldt’s salary increased each year by the amounts listed below (all categories totaled):

  • 2000- $24,000 increase
  • 2001 – $14,000 increase
  • 2002 – $12,000 increase
  • 2003- $29,000 increase

By 2004, the last year Feldt was employed by Planned Parenthood, her salary from PPFA skyrocketed to over $902,148 ($490,679 in compensation, $346,570 in employee benefits and an additional $64,899 in expense account and other allowances).

In other words, within just a few years, and with the help of government dollars, the president of Planned Parenthood had received a whopping 233 percent increase in her salary.

Cecile Richards

Enter Cecile Richards, whose “accomplishments” mirror those of Feldt. In 2006, when PPFA hired Richards to be their CEO/political organizer,  government dollars to the abortion corporation jumped from $336.7 million (2006) to $554.6 million (2015), also increasing nearly 65 percent.

Since Richards was hired to the organization’s CEO position, abortions rose from 289,750 to 328,348.

Thanks to Richards, Planned Parenthood now garners nearly 35 percent of the abortion market, while the organization’s actual health services and patient numbers are dwindling. But that hasn’t prevented Richards from seeing her salary increase. Richards began her career at Planned Parenthood receiving an annual compensation of $360,902, according to PPFA’s 990 reports that year. And, just like her predecessor, her salary also skyrocketed.

While abortions remained on the increase along with taxpayer dollars, Cecile Richard’s salary rose by over 165 percent. According to PPFA’s IRS Form 990 for 2014, in just a few years, Richards’ salary and compensation had reached a staggering $957,952.

Richards isn’t the only one cashing in on taxpayer dollars.

An analysis by American Life League (ALL) in 2017 examined compensation paid to Planned Parenthood’s 12 top employees and found they received a total of $4.7 million. The report also found that the average compensation of an affiliate CEO had increased 22 percent in just the last two years.

In addition, ALL found that all 56 PP affiliate CEOs made over $100,000 per year with some making more:

  • 33 make over $200,000 a year
  • 16 make over $300,000 a year
  • 6 make over $400,00 a year
  • 1 makes in excess of $500,000 a year

“The total compensation paid to all PP CEOs is $13.4 million. This income puts the average Planned Parenthood CEO in the top five percent of all workers in the United States,” ALL wrote in its press release.

A look at Planned Parenthood’s record reveals that it doesn’t deserve a cent of taxpayer money:

  • Documented evidence that women do not need Planned Parenthood for contraceptive services
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood is losing patients
  • Documented evidence that services at Planned Parenthood are decreasing, despite an increase in abortions and government funding
  • Documented evidence dispelling Planned Parenthood’s 3% abortion myth
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood lies about the services it provides, including prenatal care
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms, despite claiming that it did
  • Documented evidence that funding Planned Parenthood also funds its abortion facilities
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood has abortion quotas
  • Documented evidence that abortion is the primary service that tax-funded Planned Parenthood offers pregnant women because, as a former worker testified, “they made their money if somebody had an abortion”
  • Documented evidence regarding the poor standard of care Planned Parenthood gives to their clients, with former Planned Parenthood managers accusing Planned Parenthood of “treating women like cattle” and using ultrasounds only for abortions
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood is misinforming women about the development of their babies
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood was a eugenics-based organization at the time of its founding
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood has been cited for overbilling abuses and Medicaid fraud, and for violating patient privacy
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood is failing to report child sexual abuse (a violation that alone should result in the organization losing millions of taxpayer dollars granted to it under the federal Title X Family Planning Program)
  • Documented evidence on the kind of sex “education” the abortion corporation is giving to teens, with Planned Parenthood promoting BDSM and other disturbing sexual practices to teenagers

The list above does not include the number of women injured or killed after using Planned Parenthood’s abortion “services.”

So, while taxpayers are forced to fund this corrupt organization to end the lives of over 900 preborn babies a day, Planned Parenthood has increased its excess revenues (that’s right: profit) from $55.8 million in 2005 to a whopping $77.5 million last year alone all while paying its executives, especially its CEO, extremely high salaries.

It was all a part of the plan, as LeFevre outlined in his book where he noted, “In the last decade it has become abundantly clear that Planned Parenthood’s success is closely linked with power and money… it takes political muscle and big bucks to prevail.”

Sadly, many of those big bucks come from the taxpayer. Enough is enough. A full defunding of America’s corrupt abortion corporation is imperative.

Group that brought abortion pill to US has eugenics history

Posted in Abortion pill, American Eugenics Society, Bernard Berelson, Eugenics, Every Child a Wanted Child, Frank Notestein, Frederick OSborn, Guttmacher, Population Council, RU-486 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 20, 2017 by saynsumthn

The Population Council has a shocking 65-year history, and it’s nothing to celebrate

(From Live Action News)

John D Rockefeller-founded Population-Council

The Population Council, the eugenics organization credited with bringing the abortion pill RU-486 to the United States, turns 65 this month — but it is nothing to celebrate.

In 1952, John D. Rockefeller III founded the Population Council and served as the organization’s first president.  According to the Rockefeller Foundation, the Population Council, Inc., was incorporated following Rockefeller’s Conference on Population Problems, “…to stimulate, encourage, promote, conduct and support significant activities in the broad field of population.”

Like its founder, the Population Council’s other members were concerned about population issues — and, like other population organizations such as Planned Parenthood, high ranking Population Council leaders were well connected to the eugenics movement.

Frederick Osborn

 

Frederic Osborn followed Rockefeller as Population Council president in 1957. Osborn was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society who signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood,” published in April of 1938. Osborn once wrote, “Eugenic goals are most likely attained under a name other than eugenics.” Some speculate that Planned Parenthood’s infamous slogan, “Every Child a Wanted Child,” may have originated with Osborn. It is no wonder that Osborn also said that “Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”

Frank W Notestein

Frank W. Notestein followed Osborn as president in 1959. Like Osborn, he was member of the American Eugenics Society and as the American Philosophical Society, according to a biography published by Princeton University. He was also one of the organization’s original four trustees, according to the Population Council’s 1957 Annual Report.

In 1939, Notestein and Osborn served together on the Medical Advisory Board for Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Federation. By 1967, under Notestein’s leadership, the Population Council released a controversial film, entitled “Family Planning,” which featured Disney’s iconic cartoon figure Donald Duck. It was one of many efforts in the 1960s and ’70s to indoctrinate the culture on the use of birth control.

By 1970, Notestein was serving on the Board of Directors of Planned Parenthood-World Population.

Bernard Berelson

Bernard Berelson took the helm of Population Council in 1968, as its fourth president. A year later, in 1969, Berelson published an article which suggested that if voluntary methods of birth control were not successful, it may become necessary for the government to put a “fertility control agent” in the water supplies of “urban” neighborhoods. The article was published in the journal, “Studies in Family Planning,” published by the Population Council. Berelson was also featured in the Population Council’s first issue of “Population and Development Review.”

 

Alan F. Guttmacher, M.D. sat on the Population Council’s first Medical Advisory Board. Guttmacher, a former Planned Parenthood president, was also vice president of the American Eugenics Society. His ideas of forced or compulsory population control measures were in lock-step with Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger, who made sure that Planned Parenthood was knee deep in eugenics. Guttmacher’s namesake institution, the Guttmacher Institute, would later be referred to as a “research arm” and a “special affiliate” of Planned Parenthood.

Thomas Parran, Jr. was on the original Population Council’s board of trustees. On paper, he has a very distinguished career, having been named the nation’s sixth U.S. Surgeon General, building support for the passage of Social Security as well as the establishment of the World Health Organization. His name even appeared on the public health building of the University of Pittsburgh as “one of the giants of 20th-century medicine.”

Thomas Parran (Photo: NIH/NLM)

But according to USA Today, “Parran’s legacy was tainted in 2010, when the U.S. government apologized to Guatemala for the syphilis experiments that exposed 1,308 men, women and children to syphilis without consent from 1946 to 1948. Parran approved of the experiments, conducted by U.S. Public Health Service physician John Cutler.” (Cutler and his wife Eleise contributed to the Population Council and Cutler’s wife admitted that she served on the board of Planned Parenthood.)

Earlier this year, Philly.com reported that Parran was suspected of being the “intellectual inspiration of the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study”:

Regrettably, Parran’s great work, impressive resume, and proud legacy are besmirched by his ethical violations. The truth of his association with horrendous experiments using impoverished Alabama sharecroppers, federal prison inmates, and an array of vulnerable subjects in Guatemala who were purposefully infected with syphilis were already known. But newly discovered evidence disclosing his role as the architect of the Tuskegee study may have caused his already troubling case to reach the tipping point…

Pitt trustees now must confront evidence showing Parran was more than a distant bureaucrat during the Tuskegee study. New documents disclose that Parran believed the African American population of Macon County, Ala., was perfect for a nontreatment exercise. “If one wished to study the natural history of syphilis in the Negro race uninfluenced by treatment,” Parran wrote in January 1932, “this county would be an ideal location for such a study.”

Eugenics founded Guttmacher praises Eugenics founded Population Council which turned 65

The Rockefeller family has long been connected to eugenics. According to author Rebecca Messall, “Rockefeller money funded eugenic scientists decades before Hitler put eugenic theories into practice.”

Rockefeller eugenics (image: New York Times)

According to author Edwin Black (emphasis added), “Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America’s most respected scientists hailing from such prestigious universities as Stamford, Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics’ racist aims… The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.”

Black added, “In May 1926, Rockefeller awarded $250,000 to the German Psychiatric Institute of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, later to become the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry. Among the leading psychiatrists at the German Psychiatric Institute was Ernst Rüdin, who became director and eventually an architect of Hitler’s systematic medical repression.” (NOTE: In 1933, Rüdin’s call for racial purity was published in Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Review. According to the documentary film, Maafa21, Rudin would be chosen by Hitler to write Germany’s eugenics laws.)

Rockefeller III once claimed that birth control was “directly related to the matter of meaningful peace.”

In her review of the book, “Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population,” written by Columbia University historian Matthew Connelly, C-Fam author Susan Yoshihara, Ph.D, discovered what led up to Rockefeller’s founding of the Population Council:

In 1952, at a secret, invitation-only gathering in Colonial Williamsburg, John D. Rockefeller III brought together what would become the modern population control establishment. Setting the agenda for the following decades were the heads of the United States Atomic Energy Commission, National Academy of Sciences, and top scientists “from embryology to economics,” including past and present Nobel Prize winners.

From verbatim transcripts of the “Conference on Population Problems,” just one of the countless number of such meetings the book exposes, Connelly found that what drove them were the questions of how many people the world could hold along with “whether ‘industrial development should be withheld’ from poor, agrarian countries like India.” By decreasing mortality and encouraging “breeding,” development would increase inferior populations and further degrade “the genetic quality of the human race.” They decided radical measures to reduce birthrates were justified in order to save “Western Civilization” from being dragged down by the growing humanitarian demands of Third World countries.

Thus was born the Population Council, which would in turn become the nexus of the entire population control movement, going on to coordinate the work of the United Nations, the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) – founded three weeks later – as well as major pharmaceutical firms.

In 1994, with the encouragement of the Clinton administration, french pharmaceutical manufacturer Roussel-Uclaf assigned the US rights of marketing and distribution of abortion pill RU-486 to the Population Council. The right to distribute the harmful drugs were later handed over to Danco Laboratories, a sub-licensee of the Population Council.

In 2015, a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found that from fiscal year 2010 through 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) reported sending about $236 million to six organizations and their affiliates and member associations: Advocates for Youth, Guttmacher Institute, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and the Population Council.

Today, abortion remains among the Population Council’s strategic priorities, according to its latest annual report.
