abortion pill

A measure to force public universities to offer dangerous abortion pills on college campus, recently signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom, will initially be set up using funds from pro-abortion groups. However, pro-life student group Students for Life of America (SFLA) notes that student fees will also be used to fund on-campus abortions, since those fees underwrite the costs of campus healthcare centers. SFLA also pointed out how the conscience rights of students and healthcare workers will be violated if forced to participate with abortions. “This law includes funds that can go to Planned Parenthood for ‘consulting’ and new funds for ‘security’, allowing the nation’s number one abortion vendor to sit back and cash checks, enjoying the chaos of abortions taking place at schools without any of the risk,” said SFLA president Kristin Hawkins.

The bill requires student health care services centers at the state’s 34 University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) campuses to offer medication abortion on and after January 1, 2023. According to a Department of Financial Bill Analysis, SB 24 “establishes the College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund under the administration of the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls.” It requires the Commission, whose current chair Alisha Wilkins previously worked for Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest in Riverside, “to provide grants of $200,000 to each student health center, and a grant of $200,000 to both the UC and CSU system to become prepared to offer abortion by medication techniques and develop associated back-up medical supports.”

The abortion pill was brought into the U.S. by the Population Council, a eugenics organization which sought out investors to set up a highly secretive company — DANCO Laboratories — to manufacture the drug.

Investors included:

  • The Packard Foundation, which originally invested in 1996 to help keep DANCO afloat when it “ran short on funds”
  • The Buffett Foundation, identified by the Washington Post in 2000, writing, “The Buffett Foundation… made at least $2 million in interest-free loans to the Population Council… according to tax documents filed in 1995. That money was in turn used to conduct clinical trials of RU-486 [the abortion pill].”
  • George Soros (Open Society Foundations)
  • A number of other abortion pill investors chose to remain unnamed, according to internal documents reviewed by the Wall Street Journal

To update campus student health center procedures, provide training, and purchase equipment at UC, the Department’s analysis estimated:

  • One-time system wide readiness General Fund costs between $4.6 million to $7.8 million…
  • Ongoing General Fund costs of $2.2 million to $3.3 million commencing in 2023 to provide abortion by medication services in each campus student health center and provide access to 24-hour telehealth services.

At CSU, the initial costs were “unknown” but raised concerns it could likely range in the millions to low tens of millions of dollars.

“While this bill and its sponsors indicate that private financing would cover all the costs associated with this bill, Finance notes this bill could create future General Fund cost pressures to the extent sufficient private funding cannot be raised to support readiness grants, the costs to comply with this bill’s requirements exceed the proposed grant funding, or to the extent the UC and CSU incur ongoing costs after January 1, 2023,” the analysis said.

According to a statement by the ACLU, a “[C]onsortium of funders, including the Women’s Foundation of California and Tara Health Foundation,” has raised the initial funds.

According to the Guttmacher Institute there were 132,680 abortions committed in California in 2017. A previous analysis by Live Action News revealed that taxpayers in the state paid over half a billion dollars (nearly $700 million) for abortions from 1989 to 2014. In 2017, the pro-abortion Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) — a research group at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, which trains abortion providers — estimated, “Approximately 23% of CSU students and 12% of UC students are enrolled in Medi-Cal.”

“Students across UC and CSU campuses obtain 1,038 abortions each month,” ANSIRH wrote adding, “[W]e estimate there would be between 322-519 medication abortions occurring across UC and CSU campuses every month.”

SFLA claims there was no need for the law because abortion facilities are less than 6 miles from every California public university and college campus. The group also claims there are no safeguards are in place to protect women who may be dosed with the drugs without their consent. Live Action News previously documented how many of those behind the push for these dangerous pills to be readily available on campus are also pushing for FDA safety requirements to be lifted. To date, at least 24 women have died from the abortion pill and literally thousands have been hospitalized with serious complications.

Abortion groups tell women to lie about abortion pill, claim miscarriage

abortion pill

Just as abortion supporters rage over new pro-life laws in Georgia and Alabama, claiming that women could be investigated for miscarriages, comes proof that abortion supporters are actually advising women who experience complications from illegal use of the abortion pill to lie to health care providers and say they had miscarriages.

Currently, abortion insiders, many with ties to abortion pill manufacturer Danco, are pushing for expansion of the abortion pill, despite thousands of adverse effects and two dozen deaths. The abortion pill regimen consists of two drugs: Mifepristone  (or Mifeprex) and Misoprostol. The FDA has warned women against purchasing these dangerous pills online.

Dr. Daniel Grossman, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco, who also teaches abortion allegedly told a reporter at The Atlantic that if women using these [self-managed abortion] regimens experience heavy bleeding or some other complication, they are generally advised to go to a hospital and say they had a miscarriage.

Grossman is behind clinical trials to expand the abortion pill for pharmacy dispension and is calling to remove important safety requirements put in place by the FDA, called REMS. This comes as no surprise, as one of the major original investors of abortion pill manufacturer Danco — The Packard Foundation — has funded other Grossman-authored studies. In other words, those behind the studies attempting to do away with FDA safety requirements for the abortion pill stand to gain a significant amount of money if those requirements are removed.

If you think you might have a complication you should go to a doctor immediately. If you live in a place where abortion is a crime and you don’t have a doctor you trust, you can still access medical care. You do not have to tell the medical staff that you tried to induce an abortion; you can tell them that you had a spontaneous miscarriage. Doctors have the obligation to help in all cases and know how to handle a miscarriage.
The international abortion organization, Women on Web, advises women on its website to present to the ER and claim they are having a miscarriage if they experience complications from the abortion pill in a country where taking the drug is illegal:

The symptoms of a miscarriage and an abortion with pills are exactly the same and the doctor will not be able to see or test for any evidence of an abortion, as long as the pills have completely dissolved. 

Women on Web advises women lie about illegal abortion pill emergencies say miscarriage (accessed 5/14/2019)

According to a report from The Atlantic, Women on Web’s founder, Rebecca Gomperts, launched the site Aid Access to sell the abortion pill online, against FDA requirements. The FDA recently issued Aid Access a warning letter to cease its illegal activity. Last week, over 100 lawmakers sent a letter to the FDA, asking it to continue to monitor and crack down on dangerous websites like Aid Access.

But that has not stopped other proponents of self-managed abortion, who seem set on placing women in harm’s way. The website Plan C, founded in 2015 by Francine Coeytaux and Elisa Wells, tells women, “Those who choose to self-manage their abortion have no obligation to report that they have used misoprostol and there is no way it can be detected in the body, even if a blood test is taken. Scientists have found that there is no noticeable difference between a naturally occurring miscarriage and the bleeding that happens after taking misoprostol.”

Plan C Website FAQ where get

Then, if something goes wrong (and it most likely will), the Plan C website, which is under the fiscal sponsorship of the National Women’s Health Network, advises women to present to the emergency room or other health care offices and simply claim they are experiencing a miscarriage.

Live Action News previously reported how abortion organization, Reproaction, purchased over $4,000 in ads to promote a push for self-managed abortion — something unapproved by the FDA. Reproaction also advises women to seek care by lying about their abortions.

A webinar published in 2018 states in part that women “need information to reduce the risk of arrest… what the signs of a complication are and most importantly what to say if one needs to go to the doctor…. [T]he symptoms of an abortion with pills and miscarriage are exactly the same and the treatment for any kind of complication is exactly the same…. It’s important for people to understand there’s no test for these pills in blood or urine so if they present with a miscarriage they can get the healthcare that they need….”

tweet from “Helen Bolton” — whose profile implies that he or she is with organized abortion groups “ and ” — reiterates the deception being proposed: “Misoprostol is basically OTC in a lot of the world and is regularly used to self-manage abortions in places where it’s illegal. Even with complications, the patient looks like they had a miscarriage, so people can go to a hospital (provided miscarriages aren’t investigated).”

FDA warns women: “Do Not Buy Mifeprex Over the Internet.

FDA warns consumers to not buy abortion pills over the internet

The FDA adds, “You should not buy Mifeprex over the Internet because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health (and the health of others). Mifeprex has special safety restrictions on how it is distributed to the public. Also, drugs purchased from foreign Internet sources are not the FDA-approved versions of the drugs, and they are not subject to FDA-regulated manufacturing controls or FDA inspection of manufacturing facilities.”

According to the FDA’s adverse effects reports through 2018, there have been reports of 24 deaths associated with Mifeprex since the product was approved in September 2000, as well as 4,200 reported adverse effects, including hospitalization and other serious complications.

abortion deaths

 

Abortion, whether committed by a skilled physician, a licensed LPN, or self-inflicted, is not health care and can result in serious complications where women may be injured and sometimes die. Women who fall victim to the lie that abortion will solve their problems, can be placing their lives at risk. And abortion deaths, whether from legal or illegal procedures, lay squarely at the feet of abortion advocates, not pro-lifers.

Today, as more states step up to protect the preborn child in the womb, abortion advocates are dredging up an old talking point, suggesting that making abortion illegal makes it less safe and causes women to die. What they fail to point out is that women are dying now from legal abortion — abortions they sold to women and abortions they committed. These dead women are then written off as a “complication” of surgery and are never mentioned or mourned by abortion advocates, as ambulance after ambulance transports women from Planned Parenthood and other legal abortion facilities. And the abortion-supporting media almost never mentions them.

Abortion proponents are very good at flashing images of dead women when it is convenient for them. But where have they been for over 40 years as women and teen girls lay bleeding to death after a legal procedure?

Keisha AtkinsLakisha WilsonTonya ReavesCree SheppardJennifer MorbelliChristin GilbertJamie Lee Morales. All women who have died from legal abortion. And the list goes on. You can see an even more complete list of “safe and legal” abortion deaths at the end of the video below — the list goes for minutes. Watch:

 

READ: Centers for Disease Control report reveals more deaths from legal abortion than we thought

Carolina Gutierrez received such a serious infection from the legal abortion facility she visited in Florida that doctors had to amputate parts of her body to try and save her life. But the infection won and Carolina and her unborn child became another statistic in the abortion battle. There have been multiple others, names of women the media barely whispers. Many who were mothers, sisters, and wives — all in the grave — because they believed the lie that legalizing abortion made it safe.

I took the picture of Carolina below with the permission of her family while attending her funeral:

Anyone that believes it is only illegal abortions that put women in danger of death need look no further than actual abortion and Planned Parenthood facility “consent forms,” which testify to the risks women can face from a legal abortion procedure.

The following serious risks can occur during a surgical abortion, according to an online abortion consent form from Whole Woman’s Health abortion facility:

  • Infection
  • Incomplete Abortion
  • Continuing Pregnancy
  • Perforation or Laceration (Tear or Puncture)
  • Bleeding or Hemorrhage
  • Anesthetic Reaction
  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism
  • Mortality Risk (death)

Planned Parenthood’s “risks” with early medical abortion include:

  • The pregnancy doesn’t end
  • Incomplete abortion
  • Blood clots in the uterus
  • Bleeding too much or too long
  • Infection of the uterus
  • Allergic reaction
  • Death

Case after documented case exists of women mangled, abused, or killed from legal abortion. Even Kermit Gosnell’s notorious “House of Horrors” abortion facility was kept functioning due in part to the so-dubbed “sisterhood of silence” which opposed oversight of Pennsylvania abortion facilities.

Even today, despite numerous warnings from the FDA urging women not to purchase abortion pills online, many abortion crusaders are facilitating the sale of these illegal and potentially dangerous drugs. Then, when women are injured or near death, these same scaremongers, some who defy the law and provide illegal abortions, advise women to lie to medical personnel, claiming they are experiencing miscarriages. How is this helping women? How are women to know the true risks of abortion if reporting agencies are purposely being lied to by patients?

Then, when a woman dies, who will they blame? The pro-life community, of course, for supposedly “making abortion less safe” by restricting it. And the abortion-friendly media will refuse to investigate, as always.

This strategy is nothing new; it was put into motion prior to Roe and now it is being dusted off and reused. Former abortionist and NARAL founder Bernard Nathanson wrote about it in his book, Hand of God(pg. 89-90):

Our favorite tack was to blame the church for the death of every woman from a botched abortion. There were perhaps 300 or so deaths from criminal abortions annually in the US in the 60’s, but NARAL in its press releases claimed to have data that supported a figure of 5,000. Fortunately, the respected biostatistician Dr. Christopher Tietze was our ally. Though he never actually staked himself to a specific number, he never denied the authenticity of these claims.

According to a September 13, 1967, article in the Berkshire Eagle, Tietze called the 5,000 illegal abortion deaths “unmitigated nonsense,” at a conference sponsored by the Harvard Divinity School and Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation.

So, how many women actually died prior to Roe? Read about that here. and here.

FDA: 24 women die from abortion pill, thousands of serious complications

Posted in AAPLOG, Abortion death, Abortion pill, Abortion Pill Connections, Abortion Pill Horrors, DANCO, Daniel Grossman, Generic Abortion Pill, Inc., Packard Foundation with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2019 by saynsumthn

As more women die from abortion pill, the FDA approves a generic version

abortion pill, emergency contraception

 

The FDA has approved a generic version of the abortion pill Mifeprex, at a time when more deaths are being reported and the abortion industry is pushing for the dangerous abortion inducing chemicals to be dispensed online or by mail. According to a notice from the FDA, the generic version is approved for use as an abortifacient. This news comes just a day before the FDA updated its adverse effects reports through 2018, stating, “As of December 31, 2018, there were reports of 24 deaths of women associated with Mifeprex since the product was approved in September 2000, including two cases of ectopic pregnancy resulting in death; and several cases of severe systemic infection (also called sepsis), including some that were fatal…” The FDA’s 2017 report put the number of deaths at 22.

This means that in 2018 alone, two more women died from taking the abortion pill. And yet, now a generic version is going to be made available.

To date, the report documents nearly 4,200 reported adverse effects, including hospitalization and other serious complications.

On April 11, 2019, the FDA approved GenBioPro, Inc.’s abbreviated new drug application for a generic Mifeprex, which, when used with Misoprostol is approved as an abortion pill regimen. The FDA states (emphasis added), “This approval reflects FDA’s determination that GenBioPro’s product, Mifepristone Tablets, 200 mg, is therapeutically equivalent to Mifeprex and can be safely substituted for Mifeprex. Like Mifeprex, the approved generic product is indicated for the medical termination of intrauterine pregnancy through 70 days gestation….”

The FDA also states clearly that although they modified the Mifeprex application to include “mifepristone products,” this change in no way removes the FDA’s REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy), “a safety strategy to manage a known or potential serious risk associated with a medicine and to enable patients to have continued access to such medicines by managing their safe use.”

Of note, on April 11, 2019, FDA approved a supplemental application for Mifeprex, approving modifications to the existing approved REMS for Mifeprex to establish a single, shared system REMS for mifepristone products (including Mifeprex as well as the approved generic version of Mifeprex) for the medical termination of intrauterine pregnancy through 70 days gestation. In establishing the single, shared system REMS, no changes were made to the substantive elements of the REMS. This single, shared system REMS is known as the Mifepristone REMS Program.

Find approval information for this 2019 supplement here.

The approved generic version of Mifeprex generally has the same labeling as Mifeprex…Under the law, the approved generic version of Mifeprex is required to use a single, shared system REMS with the brand product, Mifeprex. This single, shared system REMS, known as the Mifepristone REMS Program, sets forth the distribution requirements that must be followed for both Mifeprex and the approved generic version of Mifeprex.

Requiring that the generic be subject to FDA’s REMS is good news for now, because, as Live Action News has previously reported, the abortion lobby is attempting to expand access to the abortion pills via mail order or pharmacy by pushing “self-managed abortion,” described by Guttmacher as ending a pregnancy “without direct supervision by a health care provider.” To accomplish this, REMS, must be eliminated.

READ: What you should know about the dangerous ‘self-managed’ abortion pill push

Dr. Donna Harrison, Executive Director American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists(AAPLOG), agreed, telling Live Action News (emphasis added):

Allowing a generic equivalent of Mifeprex basically means that the patent restrictions have run out. So, new drugs have a patent which is time limited… and in the case of Mifeprex, the patent was held by the Population Council. So, now that the patent has run out, generics are allowed. But this does not change the restrictions. REMS are still in place until FDA changes the restrictions. So, just to clarify, this does not mean that Mifeprex is OTC [over-the-counter]. It just changes how much quality control goes in to the pill manufacturing process and how much Danco can charge for the drug.

The move towards a generic drug is being hailed a victory by abortion advocates, specifically Dr. Daniel Grossman, who has deep tiesto the “self-managed” abortion pill push.

Under the Mifepristone REMS Program, the FDA states, “Mifeprex and the approved generic version of Mifeprex” may:

  • [O]nly be supplied directly to healthcare providers who are certified to prescribe the drug product and who meet certain qualifications.
  • [T]he products are only available to be dispensed in certain healthcare settings, specifically, clinics, medical offices and hospitals, by or under the supervision of a certified prescriber.
  • They are not available in retail pharmacies and are not legally available over the Internet.

The original drug (Mifeprex) was approved in 2000 after being brought to the U.S. by the eugenics-founded Population Council, and was seeded by the Packard Foundation among other pro-abortion philanthropy groups. They then set up a highly secretive company named Danco to manufacturer the drug.

The generic version is produced by GenBioPro, Inc., which also appears to have the financial support of abortion collaborators. In fact, Packard gave GenBioPro, Inc. $185,000 in 2016 and 100,000 in 2017. According to the Nevada Secretary of State, a 2007 filing for the company was permanently revoked. A new filing in 2011 is active and shows a registered agent of CSC Services of Nevada, Inc. and the only officer listed is E. Masingill.

The FDA warns consumers they should not buy Mifeprex or GenBioPro, Inc.’s approved generic version of Mifeprex, Mifepristone Tablets, 200 mg., over the Internet because they will bypass important safeguards designed to protect patient health.

Conflicts of interest? Abortion pill investor funds study claiming women want expanded distribution

EXPOSED: Massive conflicts of interest found in new abortion pill study

abortion pill

Abortion industry insiders insist that there is a large public interest in expanding distribution of the abortion pill by lifting safety requirements for the drug regimen. Now, right on cue, a study done by abortion industry insiders and funded by a large investor of the abortion pill’s manufacturer purports to show that women want “alternative models” for obtaining the abortion pill. But the move is anything but organic and is being strategically driven by abortion industry insiders.

Published by the Journal Contraception, the study claims that women support obtaining abortion pills “(1) in advance from a doctor for future use, (2) over-the-counter (OTC) from a drugstore and (3) online without a prescription.” But there is more beneath the surface at play here. Not only are the Journal and its authors deeply embedded in the abortion industry, but the funding for this study also came from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, a major investor in Danco, the manufacturer of the abortion pill.

In 1998, according to reports, Packard seeded Danco with $10 million, and Packard also currently funds Gynuity Health Projects, which conducts abortion pill clinical trials. Packard’s investment in Danco included a $14 million loan as early as 1996 to bring the drug to the US, as well as additional grants made in 2000, 2004, and 2009. And yet, the Journal claims there are no conflicts of interest.

The abortion pill regimen, RU486, is made up of two drugs: Misoprostol and Mifeprex. This regimen is currently regulated by the FDA under a system known as REMS. As Live Action News previously explained, taking the abortion pill regimen isn’t just a simple thing — if a woman is too far along or if her pregnancy is ectopic, these factors put women at additional risk. There have been 22 reported deaths and thousands of hospitalizations since the abortion pill’s approval in 2000.

Live Action News has previously documented how:

  • Abortion insiders brought RU486 to the US.
  • Abortion insiders are conducting clinical trials for “home-use” and “self managed” abortions.
  • Abortion insiders collaborated to push “home use” abortions.
  • Abortion insiders recently coordinated a Tweetfest to promote “self-managed” abortions.
  • And now, abortion insiders conveniently roll out a study claiming women support “alternative models of medication abortion provision.”

Despite the clear conflicts of interest surrounding this study about the abortion pill, it and other studies like it are likely to go unchallenged by the mainstream media, just as abortion industry leader Planned Parenthood’s claims continue to go unchallenged. This does a grave disservice to women.

Media enables Planned Parenthood prez to ignore organization’s eugenics past

Planned Parenthood prez says nation’s #1 abortion provider ‘promotes life’

Planned Parenthood, abortion corporation

In November 2018, the New York Times (NYT) interviewed recently appointed Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen, who replaced political organizer Cecile Richards — the woman who presided over declining patient services and an aborted baby parts scandal. In her interview, Wen dodged topics such as eugenics — a largely racist philosophy — and self-managed abortions, all while claiming she has never done anything in her medical career but save lives. If this is the case, and Dr. Wen values human lives and desires to save lives, she’s working for the wrong organization.

Image: Leana Wen Planned Parenthood President

Leana Wen Planned Parenthood President

QUESTION #1: Eugenics

The NYT asked Wen, “How do you consider the misinformation — such as, say, that Planned Parenthood furthers eugenics — that can proliferate about the organization?” The paper’s use of the term “misinformation” is intellectually dishonest and a denial of history, which granted Wen the ability to pretend the organization’s known eugenics roots were just part of some vast, pro-life conspiracy.

Wen’s only mention of eugenics was to claim, “The same individuals who are making these eugenics claims are often the ones who want to deprive our communities of evidence-based education like teen-pregnancy prevention programs….”

Now that Dr. Wen is president, does the NYT intend for the public to believe it is “misinformation” that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, had strong eugenics connections, Klan interactions, rants about immigrants, and promoted the idea of forced sterilization? Are we to diminish the horrific effects all those victimized by eugenics as we scrub Planned Parenthood’s well-documented history of it from the public sphere?

New York Times asks Leana Wen about eugenics and Planned Parenthood (Image NYT Dr. Leana Wen Dislikes the Politicization of Health Care 11/6/2018)

Apparently, this liberal press outlet would prefer to rewrite history.

The philosophy of eugenics negatively affected many Black Americans, such as Elaine Riddick, who was forcibly sterilized in North Carolina in 1968. Her tearful testimony encouraged lawmakers to vote for reparations for those like her, who were eugenically sterilized. One of the prominent supporters of that horrific eugenics program was Clarence Gamble, a director of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League, which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood.

But today’s abortion-friendly media appears to have become far more activist than investigative, and the New York Times refused to dig any deeper into Wen’s claims.

Live Action News has documented the following:

  • Planned Parenthood had direct ties to eugenics.
  • The organization was founded by Margaret Sanger, an enthusiastic member of the American Eugenics Society who metwith members of the Klan, writing 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….”
  • Planned Parenthood brought on officials who were leading eugenics proponents.
  • Planned Parenthood received free rent from the Eugenics Society, according to the Eugenics Review.
  • Eugenic boards were sometimes operated by Planned Parenthood associates and some boards referred to the organization (watch Maafa21 clip below):

Year after year, Planned Parenthood has presented its most prestigious Margaret Sanger Award, named after its eugenicist founder, to journalists, to politicians like Democrat Nancy Pelosi, and to members of the media. (Perhaps for its softball Wen interview, the NYT will receive one as well.)

If Dr. Leana Wen truly wants to continue in her pattern of saving human lives, then why is she working for an organization established by people who promoted the idea of forced sterilizations for those arbitrarily deemed “less than”?

QUESTION #2: Self Abortion

The NYT asked Wen, “…[H]ow do you feel about self-induced abortions?” Despite claiming she treated a woman who died from an illegal “home abortion,” Wen passed up the opportunity to denounce the push for self-managed abortions.

Wouldn’t more unsupervised, at-home abortions have the potential to lead to even more emergency room visits like the one she describes in her interview? But instead of defending lives like a medical doctor concerned about women’s safety, Wen answered like a pro-abortion activist: “What I have a problem with is when they — or the government — impose their will on women’s bodies and health.”

Wen pivoted further by redirecting the topic to an attack on pro-lifers — who, by the way,  regularly document transports of women from Planned Parenthood facilities to emergency rooms by ambulance, after so-called “safe” abortions.

“It’s insulting when people describe their anti-choice stance as “pro-life…” said the new leader of the organization killing 320,000 human beings every year.

While the NYT erroneously titled this sad excuse of an interview, “Dr. Leana Wen Dislikes the Politicization of Health Care,” it is beyond clear that Wen is in lockstep with Planned Parenthood, the inventor of abortion politicization, which has enabled the organization to rake in half a billion annually taxpayer dollars that may very well help to pay Wen’s salary. 

After all, it was Planned Parenthood, not those pesky “anti-choice” pro-lifers, who recently unveiled a new plan to expand abortion on demand in 2019. How’s that for politicization?

But perhaps Dr. Wen missed that memo.

As delusional as it sounds, Dr. Wen and the media present abortion as “healthcare” and claim that Wen’s job as the abortion provider’s president is to “promote life and the well-being of women and families and communities” because, she claims, “I’m a physician. I went to medical school. Everything I’ve ever done is to save lives.”

Not all physicians save lives, Dr. Wen — including the ones working for Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole. They’re physicians who went to medical school, too — and some of them fully admit that they’re taking lives for a living.

Dr. Wen would have the public believe that abortion, the deliberate taking of human life in the womb at any stage of pregnancy, for any reason imaginable, committed 900 times per day by her organization, is “promot[ing] life.”

Planned Parenthood’s three-part plan for 2019: Abortion, abortion, abortion

Posted in Planned Parenthood plan, self-managed abortion with tags , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2018 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood has released its plan for 2019, and despite declining clients and health services, the plan reveals the organization’s continued obsession with abortion. Planned Parenthood masquerades as a health care organization, and as its abortion market share steadily increased (due in part to half a billion dollars they receive from taxpayers annually), Planned Parenthood’s profits skyrocketed. In 2018, Planned Parenthood set out to protect those gains by vowing to spend millions to elect pro-abortion lawmakers and hire a new director to push for activist judges on the court.

“There’s no way to sugarcoat it,” the document begins. “With Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, we are likely to see the further erosion of Roe v. Wade in the very near future.”

The “multi-million dollar” plan was announced by the group’s political advocacy arm, and disbursed to the media days after Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. It lays out how Planned Parenthood will “work to ensure there is still access to abortion across the country, even if the national protections afforded by Roe v. Wade disappear.”

Planned Parenthood is especially concerned how this alleged erosion will affect minorities they claim will not have access to abortion. Live Action News has documented time and again that historically, minority and impoverished groups, which have a disproportionately high rate of abortion, have consistently been targets of the population control movement.

The organization’s current focus is similar to one previously outlined by TARA Health Foundation’s “US Reproductive Health Investment Case” report. The plan committed to “increasing access for people with low incomes” even “where abortion… becomes inaccessible or is banned completely.” Live Action News previously detailed the abortion industry’s push of dangerous home-use and self-managed abortions, despite significant risks to women.

According to a press release:

This past June, Planned Parenthood convened staff members from 19 states and Washington, D.C. to strategically plan for an expansion of abortion access in key states, address current inequities in access, and prepare for a legal environment that fails to protect abortion access nationally…Planned Parenthood is uniquely positioned to do this work.

The document makes no reference to incoming president Leana Wen, who once advocated for transparency among medical professionals. After accepting the position at the abortion corporation, her website on transparency disappeared.

Expand abortion using a Regional Access Network

According to the plan, “Planned Parenthood will expand services in states where abortion is likely to remain legal… and invest in technology… to help people living in hostile states… We’ll do this through investing in a Regional Access Network, expanding where we offer telemedicine, and leveraging technology and innovation to help connect people to services.”

The document does not state what that network is; however, it could include abortion collaborators such as TARA Health Foundation, and Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate” and research arm, the Guttmacher Institute. TARA Health recently vowed to invest $20 million in California’s failed attempt to force public universities to promote the abortion pill, despite reported deaths and hospitalizations from the dangerous regimen.

The abortion chain’s plans include:

  • A Regional Access Network anywhere abortion either becomes inaccessible or is banned completely
  • Facilitate telehealth care and transportation for patients facing obstacles to abortion
  • Opening new abortion facilities
  • Expanding medication abortion services
  • Expanding telemedicine services to increase abortion access for clients in remote communities

Legislative efforts to expand tax funded abortion

The document states that the abortion organization is planning to double down on its push for abortion legislation, and fight all abortion restrictions. The release claims, “Planned Parenthood Action Fund and local Planned Parenthood advocacy organizations are already well-positioned to not just defeat hostile legislation, but also push forward proactive legislation that will expand access….”

The plan will target 10 states, including:

● Illinois, where Planned Parenthood is pushing public funding of abortion and ways the state can “codify the right to abortion in state law”

● Maine, where Planned Parenthood is “moving to ensure women insured through public programs can have… abortion”

● Rhode Island. where Planned Parenthood “will work in the 2019 legislative session to codify the right to…abortion in state law”

● Oregon, where Planned Parenthood “is implementing the Reproductive Health Equity Act to guarantees no-cost coverage for… abortion”

● Hawaii, where Planned Parenthood “is working to expand access to…abortion by advancing comprehensive coverage of… abortion”

● Washington, where Planned Parenthood “is focusing on passing the Reproductive Health Equity Access bill” to remove barriers to abortion

Use Hollywood and media to “destigmatize abortion”

It is no secret that Planned Parenthood, with its numerous abuses, is protected by the media and Hollywood. And, despite claims that Hollywood and the media side with survivors of sexual abuse in the #MeToo movement, they lend a hand in protecting sexual predators who victimize young girls and take them to Planned Parenthood to cover those horrific crimes.

Reporters and journalists who cover for the abortion corporation are frequently given awards — like the Maggie Awardnamed after Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder and a known eugenicist who admitted to meeting with the Ku Klux Klan.

The plan vows to:

  • Work with “content creators” on portraying abortion positively in film and television
  • Create resources to encourage, “accurate, non-judgmental conversations about abortion…”
  • Use technology to “help people understand the reality of safe, legal abortion and what patients experience when having an abortion”

It is doubtful these depictions will accurately describe abortion.

The 2019 plan is really no new revelation. It is simply a reboot of previous strategies laid out since the 1970’s, when Planned Parenthood first began committing abortions.
