Planned Parenthood’s newest marketing ploy: Prayer

Posted in Planned Parenthood church, Planned Parenthood Clergy, Planned Parenthood Prays with tags , , , , , , , on August 27, 2014 by saynsumthn

After an the public rose up against abortion giant Planned Parenthood when they published their Pastoral / Clergy letters encouraging abortion, which I document here and another letter here, they are at it again:

Planned Parenthood is having a “prayer event” in Columbus, OH Thursday afternoon.


The promoters of child killing, masturbation, BDSM, sexual promiscuity, who hides child rape and was founded in racism and eugenics by a Klan speaker will gather at the statehouse in Ohio…to…pray????

Can you take these people seriously?

Responding to the Immigration Crisis

Posted in Hispanic, Immigration with tags , , , , , , on July 8, 2014 by saynsumthn

As I write this blog on the Immigration crisis I am watching the O’Reilly factor. I just finished listening to Conservative radio host, Mark Levin. As a Conservative myself one would think my personal views on immigration and more specifically illegal immigration would be simple: control the border and stop the bleeding?

But…simple is not how I would describe my very conflicting views.

Conservative talking points on illegal immigration are persuasive:

• Open borders let in criminals – drug cartels – human traffickers
• The crisis on the border will increase disease with many immigrants carrying lice, scabies, swine flu, Tuberculosis and even leprosy.
• We can’t afford these people who will inevitably tax our welfare system
• Immigrants will make more voters for the Democrat Party – this is strictly political

Well…I must admit….these points are compelling.

Politically, I totally get why there is a call to deport illegals and control the border after all, no one want chaos in our nation.

Years ago, I lived in Florida where Cuban immigration was the issue.

In that crisis, I do not recall such political division the way it comes across when you discuss immigration on the Southern border.

Today, illegal immigration is muddied with stories of children, risking death, to cross into our nation. That definitely tugs in my heart. In fact, looking back on the Cuban immigration issue, I was living in Florida when a young Cuban immigrant child was deported after his mother died at sea struggling to get him to America.

His name was Elián González and it was Republicans fighting against the Democrat Clinton administration to keep him here.


Gonzalez was almost 6 years old 1999 when a fisherman found him off the coast of Florida, clinging to an inner tube after his mother and others fleeing Cuba drowned trying to reach American soil.
Republicans ELien

He was taken to live with relatives in Miami but his father, who was separated from his mother and had remained on the island, demanded that the boy be sent back, saying Elian was taken without his consent.

Bill Clinton’s attorney general Janet Reno ruled that he had to be returned.


So what changed? Maybe it is the terror threat – maybe the economy – who knows? I don’t.

Today the division is ripping our country apart. We can hardly come together to solve these critical issues.

It would definitely appear to me that the Obama administration is using the immigration crisis by refusing to do what is needed to secure the border.

On the other hand, many of the anti-immigration organizations Conservatives rely on for facts on this crisis are muddied up in eugenics.


Yes…as a researcher, I happen to know that many of the groups Conservatives are listening to on this immigration issue are founded in ideology we usually oppose.

Let me explain.

One of the top anti-immigration organizations in the nation today is FAIR, the Federation of American Immigration Reform.

tanton185 FAIR was founded by John Tanton a former board member of Planned Parenthood who also helped found the group: Zero Population Growth.


On his website, Tanton describes himself this way, “John’s conviction that continued human population growth was a large part of the conservation problem led him to chair the National Sierra Club Population Committee (1971-74), and to the national board of Zero Population Growth (1973-78, including a term as president from 1975-77). In 1979, as immigration grew to be the significant part of the U.S. population problem, John Tanton founded FAIR to address mass immigration reform. John is the author of numerous articles, editorials and opinion pieces, many of which can be found by searching under John Tanton in The Social Contract archives.”

FAIR’s website reads, “John Tanton, M.D…Dr. Tanton is the original founder of FAIR. He became interested in immigration to the United States through his long-standing concerns about the effects of unplanned and uncontrolled population growth and resource depletion. He was the national President of Zero Population Growth from 1975 to 1977 and was Chairman of its Immigration Study Committee from 1973 to 1975. He was organizer and President of the Northern Michigan Planned Parenthood chapter. From 1971 to 1975, Dr. Tanton served as Chairman of the Sierra Club National Population Committee. He is currently editor and publisher of The Social Contract, a quarterly public policy journal. He was a 1990 recipient of the Chevron Conservation Award. Dr. Tanton is a graduate of Michigan State University and the University of Michigan Medical School.”

Tanton also nurtured the anti-immigration groups Numbers USA and the Center for Immigration Studies.

Another FAIR board member, Sarah G. Epstein, now serves on Planned Parenthood’s board in Washington. Epstein also serves on the Pathfinder International board founded by eugenics financeer, Clarence Gamble. In fact, Epstein is the daughter of Gamble, and as she serves on Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR’s) Board : According to the North Carolina Winston-Salem Journal, “Gamble helped found the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947 to promote eugenic sterilization, and Journal research shows a long history of abuses in the N.C. sterilization program – abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over..” One major eugenics promoter which Gamble linked up with was Margaret Sanger.

Also, on the list is the man who helped legalize abortion in Colorado in 1967, Richard Lamm. Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion.

I have blogged about these ties before. My research is no secret and can be viewed here , here and here.

What absolutely confuses me is why Conservatives and especially pro-life Christian Conservatives would interview and promote groups that were founded in eugenics by Planned Parenthood and population control ideologues?

I am not saying that we should have no views on immigration- not at all. But, come on, shouldn’t pro-life Christians at least avoid these groups to make their points?

But, I digress.

On this crisis, I remain conflicted. Seeing children in need pulls at my heart strings.

Listening to all the talking points on the possible dangers pulls on my fears.

Red flags go up when I hear stigmatizing descriptions of immigrants taxing our welfare rolls or spreading disease.

Is this not the same rhetoric we heard to discourage freeing Black slaves or taking in the Jews from Germany or accepting other immigrant groups who made their way to our shores?
Slaves carried DiseaseImmigrants Disease

So where do we draw the line? Compassion or policy?

I still do not have the answers. One thing I do know, as a Christian, I am called to show compassion to every human being. I am blessed to have been born in the United States. I would not hesitate to help any fellow human being and especially a child in need legal or illegal.

On the other hand, mayhem and chaos are not good for my fellow Americans either. What we are facing is a crisis not just at our border but in the very heart of this nation. This crisis is not the fault of poor illegal immigrants bleeding across our borders – no- this is a crisis of moral decay leading to a country that is ripping apart.

I do not have the answers here but I know who does.

Jesus through His Bride, the Church, many of whom may be immigrants now seeking refuge into this country, has a solution.

Perhaps God is trying to show us that we are in desperate need of Him, in need of real solutions and answers.

I remain conflicted. I hate seeing illegal activity so blatant on our border. Breaking our laws shows disrespect for this nation and it should not be taken lightly.

In addition, I despise American citizens being turned down for jobs because an illegal immigrant can do it cheaper.

I join many Americans concerned that porous borders allow terrorists who will kill Americans and immigrants alike into this nation.

But- deep in my heart – I know that America has snubbed our nose at Almighty God. We have executed 55 million unborn children with abortion – we export pornography – and our God is entertainment.

If I look at this crisis spiritually I will acknowledge that the illegal immigration crisis is yet another symptom crying out for the ultimate cure in America-that we bend our knee in repentance and seek Divine intervention and wisdom.

This is not the first crisis America has faced and it won’t be the last.

But, how we respond may have changed over time.

In 1774 John Hancock penned these wise words in his time of crisis, “We think it is incumbent upon this people to humble themselves before God on account of their sins. He hath been pleased in His righteous judgement to suffer a great calamity to befall us, as the present controversy between Great Britain and the Colonies. [And] also to implore the Divine Blessing upon us, that by the assistance of His grace, we may be enabled to reform whatever is amiss among us, that so God may be pleased to continue to us the blessings we enjoy, and remove the tokens of His displeasure, by causing harmony and union to be restored.”

In 1781, Thomas Jefferson made this powerful statement, “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

Yes, on today’s illegal immigration crisis I remain conflicted – but prayerful.

Until a Divine solution comes please join me in lifting up America before Almighty God that He will purify our hearts, send revival to this nation and give us the wisdom to handle these critical issues facing us today.

Abortionist says pro-lifers have “upped the ante” by passing out fliers that ask neighbors to prayer for him

Posted in Abortionist, Texas Abortion with tags , , , , , , on May 20, 2014 by saynsumthn

A Houston,Texas abortionist says fliers that say he performs abortions and asks his neighbors to pray for him is the pro-life way of “upping the ante”

Bernard Rosenfeld

Abortionist Bernard l. Rosenfeld, who once criticized a Planned Parenthood booklet on sterilization, tells the UK Telegraph, “Recently, they’ve upped the ante – they’ve sent out fliers to all my neighbors saying Dr. Rosenfeld does abortions Pray for Him.”

Of course, publishing advertising ads under his name stating that he performs abortion is okay- just don’t let the “anti-abortion” people print fliers :
Rosenfeld clinic

Placing an abortion clinic Ad on youtube- for the Houston Women’s abortion Clinic is apparently okay – as long as it isn’t made by pro-lifers?

What hypocrisy for this abortionist to make an issue of what the pro-lifers are doing – when he is publicly saying the same thing !!!

Warning to women seeking Rosenfeld’s abortion services- be sure to read the partial list of complications the abortionist slips into the consent form he requires his patients to sign:

Democrat activist thanks God for abortion prays for low income women to have abortion access

Posted in Democrat, Eugenics, Religious Coalition of Reproductive Choice with tags , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2013 by saynsumthn

A Democrat political activist recently thanked God for having an abortion and praise God for abortion doctors, calling God “SHE”.


In a further confirmation the extent to which the party treats abortion as a sacramental rite, the points activist Midge Slater took to the podium at a Democratic event and opened up with a prayer. During the prayer, Slater spent 5 1/2 min. thanking God for abortion rights, abortion doctors as well as taxpayer funding for abortions. Additionally she referred to the decision she made to have an abortion as being a “blessing.”

Lord, we gather today….We pray for the women for whom pregnancy is not good news that they know that they have choices…we give thanks oh Lord for the doctors both current and future who provide quality abortion care, and pray that they may be kept safe…we pray for the 45 million women who have had legal abortions may they stand tall and refuse shame…for elected officials that they may always support a women’s right….we pray for increase financial support for low income women to access contraception, abortion and child care….we pray for women who have been made afraid of their own power by paternalists religion…today we pray that all women will know that they are created in the image of God, good and holy, moral and wise…we pray for an end to the stigma perpetrated against women who have abortions….today we pray for the families we’ve chosen may they know the blessing of choice…and we give thanks and celebrate that abortion is still safe and legal…”

She then quotes this Dance, dance, wherever you may be, for I am the lord of the dance, said SHE . And I lead you all, wherever you may be And I lead you all in the dance, said SHE

Approximately 50 abortion supporters are stated to have joined in the prayer held at the Iowa State Capitol Building on Wednesday, including Democratic gubernatorial candidates Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson. The event was held prior to a hearing regarding web cam abortions, and is though to perhaps serve as a counter to a pro-life prayer gathering also taking place in the vicinity.

From Hate to Love: Why “40 Days of Prayer” is Under Attack by the Christian Right

by Carole Joffe, University of California
April 15, 2012

Below is a an interview with Reverend Rebecca Turner of Faith Aloud, conducted by Carole Joffe. Faith Aloud is a pro-choice religious organization which seeks to eliminate the stigma associated with abortion and sexuality, and to provide support to both women and providers.
“Today we pray for women for whom pregnancy is not good news, that they know they have choices.”

“Today we pray for the men in our lives, that they may offer their loving kindness and support for women’s difficult decisions.”

“Today we pray for Christians everywhere to embrace the loving model of Jesus in the way he refused to shame women.”

Above are some of the individual components of the “40 Days of Prayer,” a series composed by the Rev. Rebecca Turner, a United Church of Christ minister, and the head of Faith Aloud, a pro-choice religious organization based in St. Louis, Missouri. Turner originally wrote these prayers to counter religious-based protests against women’s rights to choose abortion. For some years, the “40 Days of Prayer” were used in various ways by clinics but ignored by the anti-choice movement. However, recently when a clinic in northern California reprinted the prayers in a brochure, the movement took notice, and Turner’s prayers—and by extension, the concept of a religiously-based prochoice group—drew much attention from the religious right, including interviews by Fox News and Focus on the Family, and follow up stories in various anti-choice publications.

Below is an interview I (Carole Joffe) conducted with Rev. Turner about her organization, the 40 Days of Prayer, and the reactions of opponents of abortion when news of her activities went viral.

What is Faith Aloud?
Faith Aloud is an interfaith nonprofit organization with a history of 30 years of pro-choice activism. Our mission is to eliminate the religious stigma of abortion and sexuality. We train clergy to talk to women about their pregnancy choices and we receive calls from women all over the country as well as internationally. We also provide spiritual resources for abortion clinics to use to help their religious patients.

Most women in the US identify as religious, and those seeking abortion are no different. Our resources, created by clergy of several faith groups, offer support to women during times of distress.

Why did you write the 40 Days of Prayer?
I wrote some prayers and offered them to abortion providers to use whenever and however they wanted to. We’ve since made a full poster of the prayers that is on the walls in many clinics across the country. We were angered by the swarms of protesters that regularly took siege of abortion clinics and would hurl hateful remarks at the women arriving. As a Christian minister, I was especially angered that most of these protesters who were so hateful and judgmental actually call themselves Christian. I wanted women to know that many Christians are compassionate and supportive, and to help them find strength in their religious faith instead of condemnation.

I also wanted to give spiritual support to the other people [affected] by the daily barrage of hate — the clinic staff and escorts. Few people know what they go through every day because of their dedication to women. And few people understand that many of them-doctors, counselors, administrators-are deeply religious people themselves who have often felt rejected by their faith communities. This is wrong. I feel that I am a pastor to many of the abortion providers who use our services. Religious faith should give us strength and confidence, not guilt and shame. I have never understood why anyone would support a religion that shames and judges and ridicules its own members. That is abusive behavior and should not be tolerated in any setting.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Pro-lifers continue protests after arrest of gu…, posted with vodpod

Tell more about your mindset as you wrote the prayers.

I wrote all of the prayers in one day. I thought about women’s reproductive lives, the difficulties of being female, the choices we make, the relationships we have, the various people who work with pregnant women, and I prayed for them all. Many websites are claiming that we’re praying for more abortions, which is silly. They can read the prayers and see that isn’t the case. Most of the prayers are really all about women and their reproductive lives. We pray for gender discrimination to cease. We pray for women who are abused. We pray for women who are infertile. We pray for women to have confidence. How can they be upset by this? Really I think the only objection to these prayers comes from a deep misogyny that refuses to acknowledge women as autonomous beings with their own spiritual lives.

How would you characterize the main reactions you have received since this flurry of publicity?
The media to date has been from anti-choice groups, so most of the people calling and writing to us are their constituents. They are quite hostile, usually rambling, callers are often screaming. They accuse us of pretending to be ministers or Christians. They accuse us of baby-murdering. Emails quote a lot of scripture and tell us we’re going to burn in hell. We have had some new supporters find us through this, though. And we’ve begun a campaign called “Hate-into-Love” which allows our supporters to pledge donations for each hostile contact we receive.

Why do you think the 40 Days of Prayer has hit such a nerve with the Right, once they became aware of it?
They claim they think it’s a mockery of the 40 days for Life campaign, but I don’t think there is any mockery in it. The prayers are quite sincere. Apparently the religious right does not believe that anyone is allowed to pray except those who believe as they do. This is not a biblical idea; it is pure arrogance. The Christian scriptures say “Judge not, lest you be judged” and yet these people want to judge us as “fake” or “delusional” or even “possessed.” One person who called us after the news broke asked “Are you planning to get groups of people to rally at abortion clinics to pray your prayers?” My answer was “The people inside the clinics are praying every day.” Prayer does not belong to one group of people. But this seems to be the source of the outrage, that we dare to pray. It is apparently a very scary proposition to them that women might hear a compassionate religious voice and feel strengthened instead of weakened.

What have reactions to this campaign been in the pro-choice community?
A few pro-choice [organizations] have helped to pass along the information about our “Hate-into-Love” campaign and have re-posted the stories. We’re getting pledges from around the country. We’ve been gaining a lot of new Facebook friends [who] learned about us through the negative media.
Do you think this community is more open now than in the past to a religious presence, such as that offered by Faith Aloud?
The independent abortion provider community has always been very welcoming of spirituality, seeing it as an important part of a woman’s life and her decisions. But there is an element of the pro-choice community that is less supportive, seeing religion as the problem rather than a part of the solution, and really I can’t blame them for feeling that way. They’ve been threatened and attacked and shamed by religious zealots. But, as I mentioned, most of the women in the United States call themselves religious or spiritual, and so we need to help them use their faith for strength during difficulty. It shouldn’t be about we need, but what women need making difficult decisions.
In the several days that news of the “40 Days of Prayer” has gone viral, you have received much hate mail. Have you received anything from any anti-choice individual or group that suggests some common ground?

No. The hate mail tends to fall into these camps “You have no right to call yourself a Christian or pray” or “I’m praying for God’s vengeance on you.” We’re getting some love mail, too, with people finding us for the first time and saying thank you for being a religious voice of compassion and reason.
