5 facts the media isn’t telling you about Planned Parenthood’s Title X family planning funding

Posted in Title X with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 24, 2019 by saynsumthn

family planning, birth control, contraception

Last week, the 9th Circuit Court allowed the Trump administration’s new Title X Family Planning funding rule (dubbed by opponents as the “gag rule”) to go into effect. The mainstream media is attempting to paint the new rule requiring a clear separation between a provider’s abortion business and family planning business as a horrible obstacle for people with low income, but the truth is, even more funding was given for Title X providers this year than the previous year. They just won’t be going to abortion providers. Those Title X Family Planning funds cover:

  • Contraceptives and natural family planning services
  • Infertility services
  • Breast and cervical cancer screening and prevention
  • STD and HIV prevention education, counseling, testing, and referrals
  • Adolescent abstinence counseling
  • Other preventative health services

The new HHS rule only affects facilities that commit or refer for abortions — which means it would potentially strip Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider (320,000+ abortions annually) which holds 35% of the abortion market share in the United States, of approximately $60 million annually — and then reroute those funds to other providers.

THE FACTS the media isn’t telling you:

Fact #1: 87% of Title X family planning services providers are NOT Planned Parenthood facilities.

Planned Parenthood’s website even states that its facilities make up just 13 percent of all Title X family planning provider facilities. That means the vast majority of Title X providers aren’t Planned Parenthood facilities! But you wouldn’t know that from Planned Parenthood’s rhetoric or its reinforcement by the media.

Fact #259% of patients getting Title X services are NOT getting them from Planned Parenthood.

Again, Planned Parenthood’s website states that 41% of patients qualifying for Title X services receive care through Planned Parenthood. A definitive majority get those services elsewhere. When it comes to contraception, 68% of contraceptive patients use other publicly funded providers instead of Planned Parenthood.

Fact #3Planned Parenthood’s Title X qualified services have DROPPED 60% over eight years.

In a recent interview on FOX, HHS Secretary Alex Azar made this statement: “Cancer screenings and preventative services [at Planned Parenthood facilities] are down 60 percent over the last eight years.” (Video below.)

Fact #4Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) outnumber Planned Parenthood centers 20 to 1.

FQHCs, which also receive Title X family planning funds, offer a broader range of healthcare than Planned Parenthood. (Data on FQHCs v PP has been previously documented by Live Action News.) In 2018, Planned Parenthood operated 600 facilities while FQHCs rose to 12,000 facilities. Planned Parenthood serves approximately 2.4 million patients annually, while FQHCs serve approximately 27 million.

Fact #5: Under the Trump administration, Title X is still fully funded at $400M — an increase in funding.

This $400 million is an increase of $114 million from previous estimates. So what’s the issue? Abortion providers must now separate their businesses physically and fiscally to qualify. No money has been reduced — it is simply being rerouted to the thousands of other qualified Title X facilities. In 2019, Planned Parenthood made up just nine percent of the 90 HHS approved Title X Family Planning grant recipients. Planned Parenthood still gets Title X funds and can continue to qualify if they maintain physical and fiscal separation of their family planning and abortion business.

The above five facts were alluded to by HHS Secretary Alex Azar in the video interview below, and they’re facts the mainstream media isn’t telling the American people. That’s because they don’t serve the abortion industry’s agenda, or that of its friends in the mainstream media.

While the federal Hyde Amendment prohibits federal taxpayer dollars from funding abortion directly, money is fungible, and this is why the Title X rule change was necessary. Money given to Planned Parenthood helps to pay for salaries, facility rent, and general overhead of the same facilities and employees who also participate in abortions.

Abortions and taxpayer dollars at Planned Parenthood have been increasing, generating millions in revenue for Planned Parenthood (while national abortion totals decrease). Planned Parenthood actually pocketed $244.8 million in excess revenue over spending (profit) in 2017, a nearly 149 percent increase from $98.5 million the year prior.

Between 2016 and 2017, Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding (over half a billion dollars annually) rose nearly four percent (3.69%) even though the abortion vendor has been embroiled in numerous scandals, abuses and fraud, including covering up for child sexual predators and alleged discrimination against pregnant employees.

Hospital accused of stealing Black babies from poor women years ago

Posted in Black Babies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

After a woman found the daughter she thought had died at birth, an attorney now says other poor young black women may have had their babies taken from them.

Zella Price hostital stole black babies

In the emotional video below Zella Price was reunited with her daughter 49 years after the hospital told her that her daughter had died.

Attorney Al Watkins says he is questioning the practices at the old Homer G. Phillips Hospital which was built for African Americans in St. Louis.

Homer G Wells Hospital

“This was a well thought out scheme and artifice,” Watkins.

Watkins feels strongly that babies were taken from young mothers and then sold in the 50’s and 60’s.

He said, “There was absolutely available on the market infant black children, pay for play cash on delivery you want a baby get some money.

Jessie Ferguson was born at the hospital and claims that he has a twin which was taken at birth.

Joyce McKinley

His mother, Joyce McKinley, was 15 years old when she delivered twins at the hospital. She claims that the doctor told her the baby was dead, and he ran out of the room.

She never received a birth or death certificate for Jessie’s brother and was not allowed to bury the child.

Watkins believes dozens of women may have had their babies stolen from the hospital.

This blog has covered the eugenics attitude toward Blacks at this time.

The St. Louis County Council has now passed a resolution calling on “complete disclosure” of all public health records from the hospital.

Ginsburg: Abortion restrictions target poor, the populations we don’t want too many of

Posted in Ginsburg with tags , , , , , , on February 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once said , “I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

RuthBaderGinsberg

When she made that statement in 2009 people were stunned.

It eventually made it into the powerful documentary on eugenics and the racism of abortion, Maafa21, because her statement proved that abortion was created to get rid of “certain” populations.

And now the good Justice has told us which populations those are – the poor !

Ruth Ginsburg and Bloomberg 2015 abortion

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Greg Stohr and Matthew Winkler, the radically pro-abortion Justice says that restricting abortion targets the poor – uh – the exact same people she once said abortion was created for.

Is that not ironic?

Ginsburg was asked if American women should be concerned about all the abortion restrictions across the county.

Ginsburg replied, “Women should be concerned because abortion restrictions in practical effect target poor women and poor women only.”

Poor women only – why- we don’t want poor women to not be able to get abortions, now do we?

Ginsburg pulled out the illegal abortion days when so-called “rich” women could jump from state to state to continue to obtain abortions.

She also wrongly presumed that abortions are “safe” today yet- women are dying in abortion clinics still. In fact, they are also being raped and maimed- but- then again, from a eugenics point of view, it’s only the poor ones dying from abortion now – so who cares, right?

Dear Planned Parenthood living high on tax dollars is NOT helping poor women !

In an interview with the Willamette Week – Planned Parenthood’s President ( largest abortion clinic funded by billions of tax dollars), Cecile Richards, was asked about her 400K salary and she claimed it was a non-issue:

QUESTION: In the efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, a lot was made of your salary—close to $400,000 per year. Planned Parenthood declined to comment on it. Why?

Cecile Richards Answer: “It’s public record. It always has been. I work hard for my salary, and I think that’s a red herring. Planned Parenthood is the most cost-effective provider of family planning services in this country. The far right has done everything they can to undermine us and to create non-issues, which I think that is.”

Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and $363.2 MILLION Dollars on Government Grants ( Tax Dollars) in 2009– that is ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY of taxpayer money !!!
Planned Parenthood then took those hard earned dollars away from poor and middle class hard working people and and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. ( View 2008 990 here )


Cecile Richards; Planned Parenthood President

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

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

Planned Parenthood Prez: Cecile Richards laughing it up with the Rich and Famous

Other Officers at the National Level received the following compensation:


CFO, MARIA ACOSTA received $89,691 from Planned Parenthood $5,725 from related organizations and $2,362 in estimated compensations

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER MARYANA ISKANDER received $245,814 from Planned Parenthood and $23,696 in estimated compensations

VICE PRESIDENT OF DEVELOPMENT KIM MEREDITH received $220,427 from Planned Parenthood $24,492 from related organizations and $24,076 in estimated compensations. Before joining PPFA in 2006, Meredith spent nearly nine years as the chief operating officer at the now defunct and now disaffiliated Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, a Planned Parenthood clinic which sqandered tax dollars and will close and never repay their debtors .

NATIONAL POLITIC AND FIELD DIR, ELLEN GOLOMBEK received $203,843 from Planned Parenthood $10,729 from related organizations and $15,288 in estimated compensations, she has since left Planned Parenthood to work in the Colorado Governor’s Administration.

VP OF GENERAL COUNSEL , BARBARA E OTTEN received $219,210 from Planned Parenthood $11,537 from related organizations and $39,074 in estimated compensations

Just a Few More examples- and remember, they have 800 locations so…just imagine how many of these CORPORATE / GREEDY PHAT CATS of the RICH fill this organization !

In 2008- Planned Parenthood New England’s 2008 990 reports that

NANCY MOSHER CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER made $191,310

THOMAS FRANK CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER made $ 137,989

CHERYL GIBSON MEDICAL DIRECTOR Made $195,778

Planned Parenthood of New York City : Officers six digit salaries as reported on their 2009 990 tax form:

Joan Malin – made $229,064

Maureen E. Paul made $327,061

Louis K. Corso made $173,423

Gerald Zupnik made $257,929

Gillian Dean made $156,912

Anne M. Robinson made $168,767

What does Tax Dollars get Planned Parenthood of Illinois

Six Digit Pay Checks !!!! Paid for by you and me, according to their 2008 990 tax form.

Medical Director Caroline Hoke made $313,895

CEO Steve Trombley made $304,220 plus $58,000 bonus income = $362,220

Physician Jennifer Brown made $155,330

Physician Darwin Jackson made $111,525

CFO Cheryl Harris made $120,324

VP of development made $119,915

Assoc. Medical Director Kai Tao made $109,725


According to the report, the average hours they all worked was only 35 hours per week for their FAT CAT RICH SIX DIGIT PLANNED PARENTHOOD SALARIES !

According to the 2007 990 tax report filed by Mid-Hudson Valley Planned Parenthood , their execs are smiling because they raked in thousands in salaries off the backs of taxpayers like you and me:

President and CEO Claire Coleman made $154,437

Physician Raymond Burnett-Biglane made $104,749

VP Patient Services Kyra Carr made $93,426

VP Development Anne Matsui made $86,775

VP Finance Yvonne Van Tassel made $86,775

These figures do not account for each Planned Parenthood director – there are over 800 locations, making six digits in many cases as welll….

Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?

But, Planned Parenthood’s profits are politicians gains. Just look at this analysis from Open Secrets which monitors 501C3 organizations and how they distribute and collect their funding:

The organization’s political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats –– during the 2010 election cycle. The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.

Planned Parenthood also recorded $905,796 in independent expenditures during the 2010 cycle — money spent in support of, or in opposition to, federal political candidates, largely through advertisements. The top beneficiaries of this money were Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

In 2010 alone, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period.

So, not only does taxpayer money make Planned Parenthood officials RICH FAT CATS, they also expand the coffers of the politicians who support them- see how the cycle works?
Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?

So..just how is Planned Parenthood spending YOUR money besides paying their staff Larger than Life Salaries????

They are building MEGA Centers around the country which are muti-million dollars abortion clinics:

Some argue that Planned Parenthood is a “good” organization despite the fact that they were founded by a RACIST KLAN speaker who was so connected with the Eugenics Movement that many of her Planned Parenthood board members were Eugenics members as well. Eugenics is the movement that forcefully sterilized thousands of Blacks in the US and Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger agreed with that ideology.

Mum’s fury after being approached in the street and offered £200 to get sterilized ( UK)

May 23 2010 Exclusive by Stephen Stewart, Sunday Mail

POLICE launched an investigation yesterday after a mum was stopped in the street and offered £200 to become sterilised.

Outraged Deborah Wilson, 33, was leaving a health centre with son Jay when she was approached by controversial Project Prevention.
The US-funded group were set up to stop drug addicts having babies.

They asked Deborah, who is not a drug user, to agree to have a contraceptive implant or full sterilisation.

She said last night: “I have never been so insulted in my life. Who are these people?”

“I was absolutely mortified when they came up to me. I couldn’t believe what I was actually hearing.

“I was just taking my son Jay to get checked up and was coming out of the health centre when these women just strolled up to me.

“They seemed to be filming the whole thing as well.”

Deborah and Jay, nine, were stopped by the volunteers on Friday in the grounds of Possilpark Health Centre in Glasgow.

She said: “Three women got out of a car and said they were from Project Prevention. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one they approached .
“They asked me for a chat and I listened to them even though I was a bit wary.

“They then offered me £200 to get sterilised in front of my wee boy. I was speechless and then I told them where to go.

“I said it was a disgrace that they come up to normal people like me and ask these things in front of kids.”

Deborah added: “I am not even a drug addict so they appear to have picked me at random. For them to hang around medical centres in poorer areas and assume the women who visit are drug addicts is a disgrace.

“I told them to get away from me and that it was a disgrace that they were just going up to folk saying this stuff .

“The woman then said that this was the kind of area that they needed to be in. She said they were here to try to help ‘your sort of people’.”

Advocating eugenics through mandatory sterilization past and present

From 1967

Chronic Repeaters, women who have had multiple illegitimate children must be treated like the tuberculosis patient, Dr. John Markson said in an advocation of a mandatory sterilization law, ” A TB patient isn’t allowed to go around spewing germs.

Contraception isn’t always the answer to prevention of illegitimate pregnancy, he added, particularly in repeaters, because many of these women do not want to prevent it.

In researching select groups, the most vulnerable are the easiest to find, ” Miss Mary Reistroffer , assistant professor of social work, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee extension, said, ” The young, poor, non-Caucasian and those receiving tax support.

Gov. Pawlenty’s Offensive “Abortion Recovery Month”
April 15, 2010 06:00 AM ET
By Bonnie Erbe, Thomas Jefferson Street blog

Here we go again. Just when you thought the religious right couldn’t come up with any more outrageous behavior designed to offend mainstream Americans and accomplish nothing of worth, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty proclaims April, again, “Abortion Recovery Month.”

The proclamation, first cited by the Minnesota Independent, “encourages and promotes healing opportunities and raises awareness of the aftermath of abortion experienced by individuals and families,” according to the document signed by the Republican governor and Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.

According to Politico, the proclamation also recognizes that “many Minnesota organizations offer support and recovery services to those who have had abortions or who have been impacted by abortion” and that “many organizations in Minnesota promote policies that reinforce a culture of life and hope.”

It’s time for the religious right to get honest about what it’s really doing by continuing to campaign against abortion rights. (Politico reports Pawlenty’s third April declaration was done “at the behest of the anti-abortion advocacy group Silent No More.”)

What is the religious right doing by campaigning against abortion? First and foremost, its efforts seem aimed at trying to keep church pews filled by bringing more and more poor people into the world. Second, it will just end up boosting the teen unwed pregnancy rate every time it guilt trips an unwed, pregnant teen into bringing to term a child she does not want and cannot afford to raise. Third, it will effectively subjugate women and girls in the same way women and girls in developing nations are consigned to a life of child-bearing and little else.

So as long as Pawlenty is declaring April Abortion Recovery Month, if he wants to be fair and unbiased on this issue, he should declare May, “Anti-abortion Zealots Recovery Month,” so the rest of us can get a break from their unrelenting proselytizing and tomfoolery.

COMMENTS LEFT

Do you even know what you are saying.
“First and foremost, its efforts seem aimed at trying to keep church pews filled by bringing more and more poor people into the world.”
Wow, do you even know what you are saying? Are you saying that we should promote abortion among the poor in order to eliminate poverty? That statement oozes pure Nazism. You also seem to be promoting abortion as a means of birth control. How sick is that?

The likes of Ms. Erbe show themselves for what they are. They aren’t motivated by a concern for women and girls, or for the plight of children. Their advocacy is in aid of nothing more than pushing women and all people, herding them headlong into behaviors that warp their thinking, into devaluing life. In much the same way the nazi’s cheaped and devalued the lives of the Jewish people, through defamation and dehumanization. It made it that much easier for the nazis to justify the ghettos and death camps. The broader implications of the feminist left’s agenda should give us all pause for thought, because thinking for ourselves on the subject is long overdue.
