Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPACT) and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) are spending $500,000 to organize “an army of volunteers” to support their 650 centers across the country. According to Rewire, which supports Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion mission, several hundred “volunteers” met recently in Seattle to discuss the grand plan to mobilize Planned Parenthood’s supporters and “go on the offensive.”

The goal, according to Rewire was to, “develop more than 600 volunteer teams in the next year or so.”

“In practice, this means mobilizing on-the-ground support for each of the organization’s roughly 650 health centers,” Rewire wrote.

Buzzfeed also reported about the effort, organized under the direction of Planned Parenthood’s national organizing director Kelley Robinson, stating:

Over the next 12 months, the 100-year-old women’s health and abortion rights group will build a corps of 600 volunteer-led community organizing teams across the country, each one located near a Planned Parenthood health center […]

Planned Parenthood Tweets about their Defense Strategy Meeting

Live Action News has discovered that Planned Parenthood has been holding these “organizing summits” in several states. In early September, Planned Parenthood held events in Phoenix and Missouri, and Buzzfeed reports that Planned Parenthood also held summits in Oklahoma City and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Buzzfeed pointed to Planned Parenthood’s previous “volunteer” training used to push the Affordable Care Act (ACA). That effort was funded by the taxpayers under the ACA’s Navigator program.

According to Buzzfeed, “The ‘curriculum’ they plan to use […] will be an updated version of one used they’ve used before, though never at a program of this scale.” Adding that:

At each of the four gatherings, planned for Seattle, Phoenix, Charlotte, and Oklahoma City, around 250 hand-picked volunteers will undergo three days of trainings, covering digital programs, protests, congressional town halls, and the more basic work of building volunteer structures. Planned Parenthood will equip volunteers with online tools like phone banks and webinars, an official said, as well as ‘lots of pink materials, including shirts’ — uniform of the ‘pink army’ known to appear at rallies and protests.

With calls to defund Planned Parenthood growing ever louder, it might seem reasonable that this desperate abortion corporation, with half a billion taxpayer dollars at risk, would attempt to mobilize support. However, this is not Planned Parenthood’s first attempt at rallying their so-called volunteer “army.”

Earlier this summer, Planned Parenthood went looking for young people to recruit for what it labeled its “Summer of Defiance,”  to “provide activists campaigning and organizing skills while working on actual campaigns such as the national fight for health care reform or passing local sex education policy.”

In 2016, Think Progress, a Progressive website that supports legal abortion, reported how Planned Parenthood was spending $20 million in an effort to recruit their “army” to help gain votes for Democrat politicians, specifically Hillary Clinton. Apparently, the soldiers never turned up as Hillary was ultimately defeated.

In their puff piece entitled, “As It Prepares For War, Planned Parenthood Is Training A Political Army,” Think Progress described Planned Parenthood’s effort as, “one part of what Planned Parenthood says will be the most expensive electoral effort in its 100-year history.”

Think Progress wrote in part, “For Planned Parenthood, this election season means war. And you can’t win a war without an army.”

The newest attempt to grow Planned Parenthood’s “army” comes on the heels of yet another failure by the GOP Congress to remove PPFA’s more than half a billion in forced taxpayer dollars from the abortion corporation. But, it confirms that Planned Parenthood has indeed been on the defensive following years of undercover investigations conducted by Live Action which exposed Planned Parenthood’s history of misinformation, falsehoods, covering up of child sexual abuse and child sex trafficking, and deceptive advertising.

In addition, undercover videos published by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shocked the nation and revealed Planned Parenthood’s gruesome baby parts scheme capturing leading Planned Parenthood staffers as they haggled over the bodies of babies they aborted.

Planned Parenthood’s survival may be dependent upon this alleged grassroots effort and, of course, the tax payers who once again (thanks to the US Congress) are forced to send the money for Planned Parenthood to pull it off. After all, the organization’s own numbers reveal that they are losing massive amounts of patients, dropping more than 600,000 since 2011, while Planned Parenthood’s reports show that their alleged “health care” services are decreasing rapidly.

And, despite taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood doubling in past years, losing patients and decreasing actual health services, Planned Parenthood has managed to increase the one “service” they claim they do not focus on: abortion.

Today, Planned Parenthood garners 35 percent of the abortion market share nationally.

The fact remains that Planned Parenthood can afford to waste their dollars growing their “army” because with the help of the U.S. Congress, Planned Parenthood has been netting millions of dollars in excess revenue almost every year.

But, with all of Planned Parenthood’s dollars and efforts to recruit this “army,” the fact still remains that the largest youth-led efforts surrounding the abortion debate are solidly pro-life.

Students for Life organize to Defund Planned Parenthood 2017 (image credit SFL Facebook)

Organizations such as Students for Life serve over 1,000 student-led groups, training over 11,000 students each year conducting nearly 600 trainings annually.

In response to the news about the latest Planned Parenthood effort, SFL noted on their website, that: 

Surveys have shown that over 53% of millennials believe that abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances. What’s worse for them is that not only are the majority millennials pro-life, but, even according to NARAL and EMILY’s List, pro-life millennials are more likely to be passionate about their beliefs than pro-abortion millennials. These passionate pro-life millennials are more inclined to be engaged on social media and ready to stand up for the preborn.

Planned Parenthood’s effort to rally their “army” is yet another attempt to simply push abortion down the throats of the American public.

The fact is, that the over half a billion dollars sent to Planned Parenthood every year by the Government is fungible and frees up funds that can pay for abortion and be used to campaign against the very politicians who keep failing to defund this abortion behemoth. And, apparently, funds can also be used to organize an “army” which can then attack anyone who opposes Planned Parenthood in the future.

If Planned Parenthood can waste $500K to organize their “army” then perhaps they no longer need the millions of dollars the taxpayer is forced to send them each year.

Planned Parenthood and Guttmacher both get millions in tax dollars to promote abortion

Posted in Guttmacher, Planned Parenthood and Guttmacher with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2016 by saynsumthn

As pro-lifers expose how government funding of abortion business Planned Parenthood is increasing annually, reports from Planned Parenthood’s research arm reveals that government funding is pouring into that pro-abortion organization as well. And, while the Guttmacher Institute claims to be a separate entity from Planned Parenthood reports from both agencies show that money is flowing between the organizations.

In 1968, Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher, a one time president of Planned Parenthood, established the Guttmacher Institute. The Institute described him this way, “no one was better able to unite the Planned Parenthood organization or summon it to carry out its historic mission.” Guttmacher’s “history” page reveals more of their connection to Planned Parenthood:

    “The Guttmacher Institute was founded in 1968 as the Center for Family Planning Program Development…The Center was originally housed within the corporate structure of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA). Its program, however, was independently developed and overseen by a National Advisory Council separate from the PPFA Board of Directors. Its early development was nurtured by Alan F. Guttmacher, an eminent obstetrician-gynecologist, teacher and writer who was PPFA’s president for more than a decade until his death in 1974. The Center was renamed in Dr. Guttmacher’s memory, and the Guttmacher Institute incorporated as an entirely independent nonprofit policy research institute with its own Board in 1977.”

The Guttmacher Institute has admitted that they were affiliated with Planned Parenthood but also say the affiliation has been terminated:

    “In 2007, Guttmacher’s special affiliation status with PPFA was terminated, and PPFA’s financial support to the Institute, then at $395,000 (3.3% of Guttmacher’s total budget), was phased out over the following three years. In 2010, PPFA’s final contribution in support of the Institute’s program, in the amount of $75,000, constituted 0.6% of Guttmacher’s nearly $13 million budget. In 2013, PPFA made a one-time contribution of $50,000 to the Cory L. Richards Memorial Scholarship Fund; this gift did not support the Institute’s programmatic work.”

The Guttmacher Institute which supports and promotes the full agenda of Planned Parenthood has been successful in convincing the media that they are the most credible source on all things “family planning” and “abortion.” They have also persuaded the media that they are totally separate from Planned Parenthood. But a glance at this 2002 annual report shows that Planned Parenthood support was 7% of Guttmacher revenue that year.

2002 Guttmacher Annual Report

2002 Guttmacher Annual Report

In 2010, Guttmacher’s President and CEO, Sharon Camp told CUNYTV that they were not associated with Planned Parenthood, “In 1977, call it the divorce that didn’t work because we remained for a number of years after that a special affiliate of Planned Parenthood,” the Guttmacher president said.

She then tells the host that because of those who opposed their abortion agenda they decided to completely unaffiliated from Planned Parenthood, stating, “We both, together with Planned Parenthood, decided that we needed to make the divorce final. And, so we have for the last 4 or 5 years been completely unaffiliated with Planned Parenthood.”

When Ryan Bomberger over at the Radiance Foundation heard the claim, he did some research of his own. In an article published by Life News Bomberger discovered that Planned Parenthood gave millions to Guttmacher, writing:

guttmacher3 takes money from PLanned Parenthood

    “A quick look at the nation’s largest abortion chain’s 990 tax filings reveals how “completely unaffiliated” Guttmacher has been. Planned Parenthood…gave $2,142,076 of our tax dollars to their “research” arm, Guttmacher…That’s a lot of unaffiliation! Most of us would love to be “unaffiliated” with large organizations with over $1 billion in asset, as long as it’s not PPFA of course. The corporate memo apparently didn’t get to PPFA as it listed Guttmacher, in its 2007 tax filing, as an “Independent Affiliated Organization”.

Now, it has come to light that the payout between Guttmacher and Planned Parenthood has gone both ways. A review of the past 14 years of Planned Parenthood annual reports has revealed that not only has Planned Parenthood funded Guttmacher, but Guttmacher has been very generous to Planned Parenthood as well.

Guttmacher to Planned Parenthood 6.4 million 2000 to 2001

A look at Planned Parenthood’s 2000-2001 annual report indicates that Guttmacher gave the abortion business, $6.4 million that year. But, the payout did not end there. A review of other Planned Parenthood annual reports shows similar “contributions.

In 2001, Guttmacher funneled $16.7 million into Planned Parenthood and by the end of 2002, Guttmacher lavished Planned Parenthood with an additional $7.8 million. In 2003 Guttmacher gave Planned Parenthood $7.6 million and continued the pay-outs in 2005 when they gave Planned Parenthood $7.9 million for a total of at least $40 million.

PP Guttmacher 2005 Annual Report

And where would a non-profit get that kind of money? From you and I the taxpayer. In fact, as recent as 2014, the American tax payer gave $827,961 to Guttmacher.

Guttmacher 2014 government taxdollars abortion

But the 2014 figure is relatively smaller than the contributions Government agencies deposited into Guttmacher Institute’s coffers years earlier. A look at some of the organization’s annual reports reveals the following was also paid out to Guttmacher by the taxpayer:

2013 $1,062,276

2012 $1,525,996

2009 $1,026,676

2008 $1,195,894

2007 $1,904,127

2005 $1,926,689

2003 $2,195,93

2002 $1,671,342

*Note that some of Guttmacher’s annual reports indicate that they received support from Planned Parenthood or IPPF. Similarly, several Planned Parenthood reports which documented receiving Guttmacher dollars also stated that they supported Guttmacher as evidenced below.

Guttmacher PP SUpports

So, in summary, the taxpayer gives money to Guttmacher and Planned Parenthood. Both support abortion, admitted they were, in fact, affiliated and both have given financial support to each other. So, the next time you read a report from Guttmacher or Planned Parenthood quotes Guttmacher as unbiased – keep this in mind.

And, one more thing, when you write that letter or call your Congressman/woman to ask them to defund Planned Parenthood, ask them to defund the Guttmacher Institute as well!

Tax dollars to abortion biz Planned Parenthood increase by 5%

Posted in Abortion Numbers, Planned Parenthood 990, Planned Parenthood abortion numbers, Planned Parenthood adoption referral with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 1, 2016 by saynsumthn

The latest Planned Parenthood annual report has been released and shows that while abortions performed by Planned Parenthood only fell by 1%, government funding increased 5% to over $151 million dollars a day in federal tax monies to Planned Parenthood annually. In addition, the report indicates that Planned Parenthood’s abortions outnumber adoption referrals by 160 to 1.

In the 2014-2015 annual report, Planned Parenthood records performing 323,999 abortions their last fiscal year. This number is slightly lower than they reported a year prior. In that 2013-2014 annual report the number of abortions Planned Parenthood reported performing was 327,653 a decrease of 3,654 abortions.

Planned Parenthood 2014 to 2015 annual report tax payer abortion

While Planned Parenthood claims their numbers represent all abortions they performed, the report indicates that they also gave out 931,589 “emergency contraception kits.” Emergency contraception is thought by many to be abortive because they often prevent the embryo from attaching to the lining of the uterus after conception.

Although Planned Parenthood reports performing 323,999 abortions, they recorded referring only 2,024 women for adoption referrals to “other agencies.” This means that Planned Parenthood referred only one adoption for every 160 abortions they reported performing. In addition, that number also indicates that adoption referrals were only a tiny fraction of a percentage (.000021405) of their overall “services.”

Another shocking fact released in the report was that while Planned Parenthood’s total assets are $1,789.5 million and revenue totaled $1291.1 million, the U.S. tax payer was forced to give Planned Parenthood $553.7 million in federal tax dollars an increase of 5% from the previous year’s grant of $528.4. This amount makes the U.S. government the largest single contributor to the abortion clinic chain among the categories they listed, totally 43% of their overall revenue. In addition, the amount given to Planned Parenthood from the taxpayer breaks down to over $151 million TAX dollars a DAY annually.

Planned Parenthood defends abortion 2014 2015 annual report

As usual, the report listed several things the largest chain of abortion clinics boasted about including the following:

  • This fall, a Planned Parenthood health center delivered birth control via float plane to a patient in a remote Alaskan village.
  • Our advocacy efforts never slow down. We are constantly working hard to deepen our partnerships with allies, lobby in state legislatures, and fight in the courts when access to safe and legal abortion is threatened.
  • No parent in the world wants their daughter to have fewer rights than they did — so it’s up to us to make sure every girl growing up today will be able to control her body, her life, and her opportunities. Because of you, we are protecting her future.
  • Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) supports 59 independently incorporated affiliates that operate 661 health centers across the U.S., which have seen 2.5 million patients this year.
  • We protected and expanded access to abortion.
  • We advocated for Congress to reject a ban on abortion at 20 weeks because while women should not have to justify their personal medical decisions…

What was missing in Planned Parenthood’s report this year, as in past years, was any mention of the numbers of mammograms that Planned Parenthood performed. This is because, as Live Action has detailed before, despite their slick and deceptive marketing, Planned Parenthood does NOT perform mammograms.

Also missing was any mention of their gruesome baby harvesting operation. Under cover videos released earlier this year from the Center for Medical Progress showed high ranking Planned Parenthood staffers haggling over the price of the body parts of the babies they aborted. The videos horrified many Americans who called for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood. But, Congress has failed to pull the millions of dollars they send to Planned Parenthood, despite the fact that the majority of Americans favor taking funding away from Planned Parenthood and redirecting it to comprehensive health care clinics… which actually outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics by a margin of 20 to 1.

Planned Parenthood prez grilled on partial birth abortion where baby is delivered whole and brains are sucked out

Posted in Cecile Richards, Partial Birth Abortion, Planned Parenthood Partial Birth Abortion with tags , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

In an exchange with South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy Tuesday, Planned Parenthood’s president was asked about partial birth abortion.

Trey Gowdy Cecile RIchards Partial Borth Abortion

The questioning was tied to a Congressional hearing determining whether Planned Parenthood should continue to receive the over $500 million dollars they receive each year from the tax payer. Planned Parenthood’s head, Cecile Richards answered questions relating to under cover videos recently released from the Center for Medical Progress which showed the abortion business engaged in the harvesting and selling of baby parts.

In the first video released by CMP, Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, appears to admit to using the illegal partial-birth abortion procedure (PBA) to get higher-quality fetal body parts to sell.

PBA-Partial-Birth-Abortion-.image_

    In the partial birth abortion procedure, an almost fully developed unborn baby is delivered from it’s mother, feet first, with only the head remaining inside the birth canal. The abortionist then punctures the child in the back of the neck with a pair of sharp scissors. The abortion doctor then sucks out the baby’s brain tissue to collapse the skull and deliver a dead baby.

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts partial birth abortion

In that shocking admission, Nucatola tells CMP investigators that the “Federal [partial birth] abortion ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation” describing how their doctors bring the unborn baby into a breech position sounding eerily similar to the technique used in a partial borth abortion. She later tells the under cover “buyers of fetal tissue” that she will “crush below” and “crush above” the desired organ of the unborn child saying, “I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

In Tuesday’s Congressional hearings, Rep. Gowdy asked Richards if she could understand how some lawmakers would support a ban on Partial Birth Abortion.

I’m not trying to be argumentative,” Richards begins her reply, “But that was a political formulation not a medical formulation. But I certainly understand that it was passed and is the law of the land and Planned Parenthood certainly meets the requirements of that law,” she stated.

Rep. Gowdy them specified that he was not asking if Planned Parenthood followed the law but whether she could understand how some people opposed the gruesome procedure.

“I understand how people can disagree based on their religious beliefs, their background their own personal experiences. And, I also understand that people sometimes change over time and that’s the human condition
,” Richards said.

This statement by Richards appeared to agitate Rep. Gowdy who quickly pointed out that there have been numerous Planned Parenthood and abortion clinic staffers who have “changed over time” and left the abortion industry because of what they saw or were required to take part in.

Richards ended the questioning by stating, “I think fundamentally at Planned Parenthood we take the position that we trust women to make their decisions about their pregnancy. I’ve made my own decisions as well so I fell that I can kind of walk in their shoes.

A 1995 letter to Members of Congress, Planned Parenthood, Alan Guttmacher Institute and others stated that partial birth abortions were only performed about 500 times a year on the most extreme health cases. This figure was challenged by an abortion advocate, when Ron Fitzsimmons the director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers (NCAP) admitted that there were thousands of these gruesome abortion procedures done annually on healthy fetuses.

Black pastor equates funding of Planned Parenthood to giving tax money to Klan

Posted in Black Conservative, Black Pastor with tags , , , , , , , on August 23, 2015 by saynsumthn

The Rev. Walter Hoye founder of Issues for Life has uploaded a short defund Planned Parenthood primer video.

Rev. Hoye is well known for being unjustly jailed for his peaceful defense of the unborn on a sidewalk outside an abortion clinic in Oakland, California for simply attempting to offer help to women seeking abortion is an outspoken opponent of Planned Parenthood.

He has worked tirelessly to warn the African American Community about Planned Parenthood’s racist and eugenics agenda.

Rev. Walter Hoye

In his video, Rev. Hoye points out the staggering numbers of federal tax dollars funneled into the abortion behemoth, “We’re talking half a billion dollars,” the reverend states.

Walter Hoye defund planned parenthood

“79% of it’s surgical abortion facilities located within walking distance of minority neighborhoods,” he adds.

Rev, Hoye then addresses the myth that tax dollars that fund Planned Parenthood will never go for abortions stating, “Because Planned Parenthood promises not to spend the money on abortion is equivalent to giving the Klu Klux Klan, white supremacists, tax payer dollars to buy rope because the Klan promises not to use the rope to lynch Negroes.”

Pro-life group to disseminate Defund Planned Parenthood yard signs

Posted in Defund Planned Parenthood, Pro-life Waco with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 14, 2015 by saynsumthn

The outrage Americans feel from the recent videos exposing the horrific baby parts operation of tax funded Planned Parenthood is reaching a tipping point.

The Center for Medical Progress has released six videos so far showing the callous way that Planned Parenthood doctors harvest organs from babies they abort.

The fact that a majority of Democrat Senators, when given the chance, refused to defund the abortion behemoth is stunning to the majority of voters.

Now, in addition to the regular activities exposing child killing from abortion, pro-life people can speak up.

A group out of Waco, Texas has discovered a unique way to show your community you are demanding that Planned Parenthood is defunded.

John Piscotta

John Piscotta, director of Pro-life Waco and founder of the Facebook page, Hometown Pro-life Action, told Saynsumthn that he came up with the idea to create “Defund Planned Parenthood” yards signs after soliciting and receiving valuable input from members of his pro-life Facebook community.

I believe these messages on the front and back of a yard sign will be effective as a way for individuals and families to stand up to the barbaric Planned Parenthood.” Piscotta said.

Planned Parenthood Yard Sign 2

Piscotta said he will not be printing Pro-life Waco on the yard signs, instead each group can place a sticker or label on the signs with their local organization’s name and contact information.

Yard sign stakes

The signs you will receive are the standard size 18” height by 24” wide–made of corrugated plastic. You will have to acquire the wire step stakes to stick in the ground and into the signs. Stakes can be purchased at a local sign company or on-line. The step stakes are typically 30” tall and 10” wide. The step stakes have two vertical wire bars and two horizontal cross bars,” he explains.

Planned Parenthood Yard Sign 1

Having expedited several successful campaigns to close Planned Parenthood in Waco, Piscotta has set out to network with pro-lifers nationwide on what each hometown can do to rid their community of abortion centers.

He told Saynsumthn that this is yet another way that pro-lifers can network to apply pressure to elected officials to defund Planned Parenthood, which, according to their 2013 to 2014 annual report receives half a billion dollars in federal tax money annually.

Planned Parenthood 2013 to 2014 abortion stats federal money

Piscotta is encouraging pro-life groups across the country to either order the signs from him or to create their own.

“I hope your hometown will participate in this outreach so that–your neighbors will know that they have neighbors who are stunned into action by the desecration of the unborn by Planned Parenthood. Please share this message,” Piscotta said.

Each sign contains two message in black text on yellow corrugated board that read:

    End Planned Parenthood’s Evil
    defund Planned Parenthood yard signs PLW
    Defund Planned Parenthood

Individuals and organizations can order yard signs for your community from Pro-Life Waco in lots of 20 signs for $100. No extra charge for shipping and handling,” Piscotta said.

If you would like to order the signs, visit the website www.ProlifeWaco.com or email them at prolifewaco@gmail.com (not Facebook).

State #3 yanks Planned Parenthood Medicaid contract over gruesome baby parts vids

Posted in Medicaid Billing Practices, Planned Parenthood Medicaid Contract with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2015 by saynsumthn

Saynsumthn has been blogging about Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid Fraud for a while, so when they claim these states (below) are conducting a war on women, set the record straight.

From Life Dynamics:

A third state has terminated the Medicaid contract they held with Planned Parenthood following videos exposing their baby parts operation.

Earlier this week, New Hampshire’s Executive Council voted, 3 to 2, to reject contracts that would have provided Planned Parenthood centers in the state with about $638,000 over two years, roughly one-third of the public funding for the centers, which is primarily federal.

A report from WMUR reads in part:

    In rejecting the contract, Republican councilors cited recently released videos by anti-abortion activists showing the organization’s officials discussing providing medical researchers with tissue from aborted fetuses. Conservatives are alleging that the organization is profiting from selling fetal tissue, a charge it denies. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England does not engage in the voluntary tissue donation program, but the Republican councilors told Gov. Maggie Hassan the state should launch a state-based investigation.

    “You can’t divorce what’s going on nationally from Planned Parenthood of Northern New England and we need a real investigation,” said GOP Councilor David Wheeler.

Chris SUnunu

Republican councilor Chris Sununu who previously voted to support Planned Parenthood contracts said that he is pro-choice on abortion but he received more than 1,000 messages from constituents who overwhelmingly urged him to reject the contract.

Things are different now. We have to take a step back and just take a pause and say ‘Is this a company and a business that we should be actively engaging (with)?'” he asked.

Also pulling funding was Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal who announced that his state cut off Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funding August 3rd.

According to the announcement, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals informed Planned Parenthood it was exercising its right to terminate Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid provider agreement, the press release stated.

Bobby Jindal

Governor Jindal said that, because of the videos, he directed DHH to investigate Planned Parenthood’s activities in Louisiana and also sent a letter to both the Louisiana Inspector General and the F.B.I. asking them to assist in the investigation.

“In recent weeks, it has been shocking to see reports of the alleged activities taking place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country. Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental disrespect for human life. It has become clear that this is not an organization that is worthy of receiving public assistance from the state,” the 2016 presidential candidate said.

In addition to Louisiana and New Hampshire, today republican Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has announced that the state has terminated their Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood.

Yellowhammer obtained a copy of the letter sent to Planned Parenthood CEO Staci Fox.

Alabama cuts off medicaid Planned Parenthood

“The nation is shocked by videos depicting Planned Parenthood employees callously discussing the dismemberment of babies and the sale of baby body parts for profit. This is like a story out of Nazi Germany,” said Sen. Bill Hightower (R-Mobile) during the committee hearing.

The federal authorities may allow this type of thing, but Alabama won’t – and upon final passage, Alabama will have a law that reflects Alabama’s values.”

Bill Heightower Ala Planned Parenthood

Sen Hightower also introduced legislation in the state that will make it a felony to offer or accept money for aborted babies, “Because if the feds don’t deal with it, we will,” he added.

An Alabama Senate committee approved the bill today which will now move to the full Senate.

“The deplorable practices at Planned Parenthood have been exposed to Americans, and I have decided to stop any association with the organization in Alabama,” said Governor Bentley. “As a doctor and Alabama’s Governor, the issue of human life, from conception to birth and beyond, is extremely important to me. I respect human life, and I do not want Alabama to be associated with an organization that does not.”

Robert Bentley ALAa_o-e1434479146404

Alabama Congressman Bradley Byrne is now calling on the Department of Justice to investigate Planned Parenthood.

Last month, Life Dynamics reported that a Wisconsin lawmaker introduced a bill that could eliminate at least half of the funding Planned Parenthood gets in the state by reducing over-billing through Medicaid by the abortion giant.

The legislation came following calls from 24 lawmakers asking for a Planned Parenthood audit.

The state of Texas has sued Planned Parenthood for Medicaid fraud, a point Governor Greg Abbot bragged about recently on twitter announcing his call for an investigation:

Gov Gregg Abbott Planned Parenthood

“I already sued Planned Parenthood for Medicaid Fraud. Now Texas will look into these organ harvesting claims,” the Governor tweeted.

In 2013, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, the very affiliate operating the Houston abortion clinic now exposed by the Center for Medical Progress, settled for $4.3 million with the state of Texas after an audit revealed that the agency charged for “fraudulently over billing the taxpayer-funded Medicaid program.”

According to the Houston Chronicle, on July 30,2013, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast settled fraudulent Medicaid billing lawsuit with the state to the tune of $4.3 million – nearly $3 million more than was originally announced by then Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Americans United for Life has also documented alleged abuses by Planned Parenthood.

In a published entitled, The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood, they list the misuse of federal health care and family planning funds and admissions by former employees as detailing a pattern of misuse by some Planned Parenthood affiliates. (read here)

A 2014 report by the legal group, Alliance Defending Freedom, entitled, “Profit No Matter What,” makes similar claims.
