NAF files suit to silence pro-life group exposing Planned Parenthood baby parts operation

Posted in Center for Medical Progress, National Abortion Federation with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2015 by saynsumthn

The National Abortion Federation (NAF) has filed for a request for a preliminary injunction against the group that is exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation.

(UPDATE: Friday afternoon, San Francisco Judge William Orrick issued the temporary restraining writing that NAF would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order.)

HMMMM….

The suit filed against, Biomax Procurement Services LLC, The Center For Medical Progress, David Daleiden and Troy Newman of Operation rescue, seeks to prohibit the group from releasing conversations taped at their meetings.

NAF IN BED WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOCS

Naf and NARAL Planned Parenthood docs

The National Abortion Federation is considered by some as the professional voice of the abortion industry. I guess if a federation of child killers could be credible, this would describe NAF.

But, truth be told, both NAF and NARAL are in bed with the two Planned Parenthood docs, and have an investment that would motivate them to preserve now questionable reputations.

NAF Clinical policy Guide 2015 abortion

In NAF’s 2015 Clinical Policy Guidelines

From the document:

    The mission of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) is to ensure safe, legal, and accessible abortion care, which promotes health and justice for women. An important part of this work is to develop and maintain evidence-based guidelines and standards as well as to educate providers in the latest technologies and techniques. NAF’s programs make it possible for women to receive the highest quality abortion care.

    Like its precursors, the 2015 edition of NAF’s Clinical Policy Guidelines (CPGs) establishes clinical policy guidelines, which are developed by consensus, based on rigorous review of the relevant medical literature and known patient outcomes. These guidelines are intended to provide a basis for ongoing quality assurance, help reduce
    unnecessary care and costs, help protect providers in malpractice suits, provide ongoing medical education, and encourage research.

Any guess just who has authored some of this alleged “relevant medical literature?”

Planned Parenthood’s baby parts abortionists!

Dr. Deborah Nucatola head of Planned Parenthood’s medical services department bragged how she will crush above or crush below the desired child’s organ to appease “buyers” of the fetal body parts.

Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council President Mary Gatter described on tape how she would modify the abortion procedure, performing a “Less Crunchy” technique to obtain more “whole specimens.” Gatter then joked about wanting a Lamborghini.

And…both are referenced in NAF’s footnotes:

NAF’s lawsuit was announced on the abortion lobby group’s website this morning.

NAF Lawsuit Troy Newman

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asks that the Defendants be preliminarily and permanently enjoined from publishing or otherwise disclosing any recordings or confidential information from NAF annual meetings, publishing or otherwise disclosing the names or addresses of any NAF members that they learned at NAF annual meetings, and attempting to gain access to any future NAF meetings.

NAF meetings are one of the only places where abortion providers can come together to learn about the latest research and advances in their field, and network without fear of harassment or intimidation. Many of the attendees are high-profile targets of anti-abortion extremists,” NAF stated in the press release.

NAF Tweet CMP

The suit claims the pro-life group new dates, times, and locations of NAF meeting and that NAF’s annual meetings have already been referenced in the tapes released thus far, including references to conversations the conspirators had with Dr. Matthew Reeves, NAF’s Medical Director.

OR Responds you must have a lot to hide

A response tweeted by Operation Rescue to NAF reads, “You must have a lot to hide.”

David Daleiden on CNN Planned Parenthood Stem Express

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue responded, “How dare a cabal of baby-killers attempt to cast aspersions on my good name when it is they themselves that are ore than likely engaging in the illegal and repulsive practice of trafficking and profiting from fetal organs obtained during abortions.”

The NAF suit claims that it could suffer “irreparable harm” if the videos were made public.

This suit is a panicked attempt to prevent the truth from being told about NAF involvement in profiteering from aborted baby remains,” said Newman.

“It is really a cover-up of potential evidence of their own wrong doing. They obviously have a lot to hide.”

“We will fight to preserve our precious freedom of speech and freedom of the press along with the ability for citizen journalists to engage in investigative journalism. The NAF’s attempt to intimidate us and sue us into silence will not succeed,” Newman added.

Earlier this week, CMP’s Lead investigator spoke about a Stem Express restraining order.

David Daleiden said Stem Express wanted to censor the vids because they showed conversations with the profitable procurement company officials admitting that they get fully intact babies from abortion clinics possibly violating federal law.

Pro-lifers‬ to present fetal model to ‪GOP‬ leaders in protest at Speaker’s Office over late term abortion ban

Posted in Abortion Numbers, CDC, Jill Stanek, Late term abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2015 by saynsumthn

It is called the Free the Ban protest and pro-life leaders from several organizations are headed to the Capital Thursday to send a message to GOP leaders: Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Fetal Model 643768793579_n

The event follows a similar one in March where eight pro-life leaders were arrested during a sit-in outside Speaker John Boehner’s Office.

This time their numbers are expected to be much greater.

House leaders originally planned to pass the late term abortion ban back in January until the vote was sabotaged by Rep. Renee Ellmers, who wanted to remove a rape reporting requirement in the legislation making it easier to get abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Pro-life leaders say that at 20 weeks the unborn child can feel pain, but is not the sole reason for banning all abortions.

Polls show that Americans are not comfortable and many oppose late term abortions, which occur legally within the US for any reason possible as demonstrated by these for profit abortion clinic advertisements:

mbenjamin_1ad_late 24 weeks abortion

Northland abortion 24 weeks

Orlando Womens abortion 28 weeks

Speaker Boehner and his fellow GOP leaders claim to be for the legislation and say they are working to draft the correct wording for the bill.

But, frustrated pro-life leaders like, Jill Stanek, who once held an aborted child in her arms, says that time is paramount and House leadership has delayed a vote for far too long.

Jill Stanek speaks about aborted baby she held free the ban

Stanek told the media at that March 25th sit-in that she wanted to apply pressure to GOP House leaders to get the late term abortion ban passed.

“I held a little aborted human being until he died, 21 weeks, that this bill would have saved had it been in place. This little abortion survivor was the impetus of a bill passed eventually in the state of Illinois called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that Barack Obama, a state Senator voted against four times. We expect this sort of treatment of abortion from the Democrat side but we do not expect this treatment from the Republican side. And, that’s what we’ve seen here with the 20 week abortion ban,”
she said.

Almost 4 months have now passed. Innocent children are dying and women are being diminished because of the Republican leadership’s inaction,” pro-life organizers Troy Newman, Rev. Pat Mahoney, and Jill Stanek state on their events page.

The group of over 13 pro-life organizations plans to go to Speaker Boehner’s office on Thursday, May 7th, to, “be a voice for the innocent children who die every day in America from the violence of abortion.”

Among the protest leaders will be Black pastor, Walter Hoye who plans to present Speaker Boehner’s staff with the fetal model of a 20-week-old African-American baby.

My son was born at less than six months gestation. I held him in my right hand when he weighed a mere 1.9 pounds. There is no way I will support legislation that includes an exception for rape and fails to end abortion in the United States after 20 weeks.

I want Speaker Boehner to know that not only do Black Lives Matter but all lives matter,” Rev. Hoye said.

According to the latest stats from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) on abortion, 730,322 abortions were performed in 2011.

Of that number, the CDC reported 7.3% of unborn babies killed by abortion were between 14–20 weeks’ gestation and 1.4% were 21 weeks’ gestation or greater.

A chart published by the CDC for 39 states that reported abortions by gestation (520,304 of the 730,322 abortions reported in 2011) show that in those 39 states:

    335,748 abortions were performed at less than 8 weeks
    139,775 abortions were performed at 9-13 weeks gestation
    17,952 abortions were performed at 14-15 weeks gestation
    9,795 abortions were performed at 16-17 weeks gestation
    9,709 abortions were performed at 18-20 weeks gestation
    7,325 abortions were performed at 21 weeks gestation or greater
    .

A 2014 report published by the Lozier Institute found that the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that permit elective abortion past 20 weeks.

GOP leader says 20 week abortion ban vote nears while pro-lifers continue 2nd protest plans at Speaker’s office

Posted in John Boehner, Late term abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

On May 7th pro-lifers vow to descend on Speaker John Boehner’s offices for a second time to demand the GOP vote on a late term abortion ban.

Police at Freetheban protest

An interview with Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy posted at Roll Call says the GOP leader intends to bring up three measures Republicans pulled from the floor earlier this Congress: a bill banning most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a border security bill that was pulled amid immigration concerns, and a No Child Left Behind rewrite that was put on hold during the Department of Homeland Security funding debacle.

That “abortion bill” is known as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Sound Familiar?

It should. Republican leaders promised a vote on the bill back in January.

When the vote was sabotaged by Rep. Renee Ellmers, pro-lifers patiently waited for it to come up again.

Free the Ban Jill Troy Pat

By March 25th when no vote was announced, pro-life leaders, Pat Mahoney, Troy Newman, and Jill Stanek among others held a sit-in outside Speaker Boehner’s offices to demand the bill be brought up for a vote.

The group claimed that the Speaker and GOP leaders were delaying a vote on the bill and in a press release sent out April 2nd, the leaders announced eleven local and national pro-life groups had planned a second major demonstration for May 7th if, “by that time the U.S. House has not passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

According to LifeNews, “new language is still in the works and those responsible for crafting a second version of the bill are taking their time to ensure it’s done right and another blowup from Ellmers or other lawmakers is avoided.

The pro-life news blog claimed that there is no purposeful delay in bringing the bill back to the floor.

Jill Stanek kneels with katie Mahoney Boehner abortion prolife

But not all pro-life leaders are so sure and Stanek and the others say that the Roll Call story has not deterred their plans for a second protest if the ban has not been passed by May 7th.

A post on Jill Stanek’s Blog shows that they mean business:

    As most know, House Republican leadership pulled the ban from a promised vote on January 22 after supposedly pro-life Republican women complained about the rape/incest reporting requirement.

    After two months had passed with no word on a rescheduled vote, I was one of eight pro-lifers who were arrested at Speaker Boehner’s office in a protest on March 25 to draw attention to the bill and the babies it would protect.

    The alliance of discontented pro-lifers has grown to 11 organizations now, which are planning another protest on May 7 at Speaker Boehner’s office if the 20-week abortion ban hasn’t been voted on by that date.

    To reiterate, unless the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has been passed in the House by May 7, we will be back.

Pro-life leaders determined to send message to Speaker Boehner as protest nears

Posted in Late term abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2015 by saynsumthn

This Wednesday please join us for a pray-in/sit-in at Speaker Boehner’s office as we call for legislation banning all abortions after 20 weeks. Sadly, the House has failed to schedule a vote on this bill. People, it’s time to be a voice for those who have no voice!

Those are the words of a Washington D.C. pastor, and director of the Christian Defense Coalition, Patrick Mahoney, one of three pro-life leaders organizing a public protest at the offices of Speaker John Boehner this week.

Free the Ban Jill Troy Pat

Rev. Mahoney, along with former nurse and well-known pro-life blogger Jill Stanek and Operation Rescue president, Troy Newman are planning a sit-it Wednesday at the speaker’s office because GOP leaders broke a promise and cancelled a vote on the “The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

The law would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks when many believe that there is documentation that unborn children can feel pain.

11036266_909158659105047_3768329217566775935_n

It was so disappointing to have you pull the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act from being voted on earlier this year.” the group wrote in an open letter to the Speaker recently.

The letter continues:

    “It was even more troubling to have this life-saving legislation withdrawn on the eve of the 2015 March for Life, when hundreds of thousands of Americans had come to Washington, D.C. to embrace human rights and equality for all, and we were promised it would be passed on January 22.

    “Although we are sure this was not your intention, millions felt betrayed by your actions and those of the Republican House leadership. Just one day before scores would be marching in the harsh winter conditions of January, we were still being assured a vote would happen the next day.

    Imagine our further sense of betrayal that, almost two months later, no vote has been rescheduled for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

Protest organizers have called the failure of Republican party leaders to introduce the bill not only a betrayal of the pro-life movement but a betrayal of America’s children.

We expect them to act,” Newman said in an interview with WorldNet Daily, “It’s exactly why the voters put them there. It was in their platform, what they ran on.”

troy newman

Newman’s determination to send a clear and uncompromising message to party leaders on Wednesday came through loud and clear just days before the sit-in will take place. Newman said he won’t back down, “We are going there to put pressure on Boehner to get this bill pushed forward,” he told Saynsumthn.

Newman questioned Boehner’s leadership in passing a law most Americans support, “This is the the most “pro-life Congress” in US History but they can’t pass a bill they passed last session?” Newman asked.

abortion-jill-stanek

Stanek says that she helped organize this protest after Rep. Renee Ellmers sabotaged the bill when it was originally supposed to be brought forward, that was January 22nd this year, the anniversary of Roe, the law which legalized abortion.

After that, I, for the most part, kept my silence, waiting… and waiting… and waiting for the GOP House leadership to circle back and fix their mess,” Stanek writes on her blog.

The GOP must have mistaken our silence for indifference – when really it was a grand display of unmerited patience – because after January 22 the House leadership went silent itself about the 20-week ban.

“So finally a small group of us said enough and organized a protest for March 25, at 11:00 a.m., at Speaker Boehner’s office, at whose door the buck stops.”

John Boehner

A week before the protest is to occur, Speaker Boehner told Life News that there is no purposeful delay in bringing the bill back to the floor, that it is very important to him and he and Republican leaders are committed to bringing it back to the floor for a vote.

I’m proud to lead a pro-life bipartisan majority in the U.S. House of Representatives,” Boehner said.

John Boehner 2

The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is the most significant pro-life legislation to come before Congress since enactment of the ban on partial-birth abortions, and it remains an important priority for our majority. We have a moral obligation to defend the defenseless, and we will continue to fight to ensure our nation’s laws respect the sanctity of unborn human life,” the Speaker added.

But protest organizers were not convinced by the Speaker’s grand standing as evidences by Stanek’s response to Boehner, “Words, words,” she writes.

11068240_916943381659908_2170996575457217449_n

Stanek’s impatience comes from her own personal experience of holding a dying aborted child in her arms, “For me, it always comes back to the 21-week abortion survivor I held until he died. That sweetheart would be alive today had a 20-week abortion ban been in place.”

Days before the protest, Stanek told Saynsumthn that she is feeling determined to see that the GOP knows she is not going away as a voice for these children, “Wherein lies one of the pro-life movement’s problems. We’re obviously not respected or feared enough to have had someone(s) in the political party that is supposed to uphold our interests carefully shepherd the 20-week abortion ban through the process like it was truly a Big Deal.

Right now I am feeling determined… angry… fed up… and disgusted,” Stanek said.

patmahoneydc

Rev. Mahoney is encouraging pro-lifers to join them on Wednesday, citing holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace prize winner, Elie Wiesel, on the group’s events page, “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”

We cannot be indifferent when it comes to standing for innocent human life and equality for all! Join us on March 25! ‪#‎freetheban‬,” Rev. Mahoney writes.

“I, as a nurse at a hospital in Chicago, held an abortion survivor for 45 minutes until he died, and he was 21 weeks old,” Stanek told WorldNet Daily. “An abortion ban such as this would save babies like I held. This is very real to me. I have actually seen and held the babies that the House is just playing around with willy-nilly right now.”

I have determined next Wednesday will be a fitting time to remind politicians, and even we in the pro-life community, about that little guy and others like him, and attempt to restore a sense of urgency on saving these babies from an agonizing, tortured death,” she said.

AHA members attack when pro-life leader announces sit in over 20 week abortion ban

Posted in AHA, Jill Stanek, Late term abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2015 by saynsumthn

A Law is proposed to eliminate abortions after 20 weeks – when GOP Representative Renee Ellmers sabotages it on the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers reacted by protesting outside her offices.

Jill Stanek Ellmers Robin Marty

Republican leaders respond by saying the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would be introduced again but, to date, it’s been been three months and the leadership has done nothing.

Now, Jill Stanek, Pat Mahoney, and Troy Newman are organizing a sit-in at the officers of Speaker John Boehner and guess who is having a conniption fit?

Not the speaker, but Abolish Human Abortion (AHA).

When Jill posted this to her Facebook page, members of AHA pounced:

Jill Stanek Sit In Abortion

20-week abortion bans are undoubtedly ageist. Jill Stanek knows this,” writes Matt Ferro, director of an abolitionist society.

Matt Ferro Jill Stanek

________________________________________

Deanna Evans-Cook, the administrator of another Abolitionist Society had this to say, “Sitting is going to do as much as marching and taping your mouth shut. You need to re-read Romans 1:16, Jill, or just admit you deny the truth.”

Deanna Evans Cook Jill Stanek

__________________________________________________

Toby Harmon a known leader in Abolish Human Abortion posted this, ” Jill, when will you begin walking in the footsteps of your relative Levi Coffin instead of being the kind of person who opposed him?”

Jill Stanek AHA

Rick Small whose Facebook page says he works at Abolish Human Abortion wrote this, “Jill, Do Genesis 9:6, Proverbs 24:10-12, Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:31, and 1 John 4:20-21 have 20-week limits on them?”

Rick Small Jill Stanek

As Jill Stanek explained, the emotion she experienced holding a 21-week-old abortion survivor at Christ Hospital years ago has made this 20-week ban very personal.

I hope Republican leadership does not think that with the passage of time pro-lifers will forget about the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This is why I am coming to Washington, D.C., from Illinois for the protest,” Jill said in the press release.

Free the Ban protest 32_7098722087914781723_n

“We want the Pain Capable Act called for a vote, and for it not to be any more watered down than it already was. There should have been no rape/incest exception. But removing the reporting requirement would not only give late-term abortionists a big loophole, it would hurt pregnant rape victims as well as other potential victims of sexual perpetrators whose crime should be prosecuted,” Stanek pointed out.

Now, to recap, three pro-life leaders are risking arrest to pass a law that would protect babies.

Will it end all abortions? No.

Did these three leaders write the law? No.

But, instead of trying to protect children who would die after 20 weeks, AHA criticizes those who will.

Jill Stanek Held Aborted Baby

In answering her critics, Jill has posted this response, “I have exhausted myself responding to AHA’s all or nothing rhetoric, or “principled incrementalism,” and just don’t anymore. But for your benefit…

“The default position of all prolifers is immediatism. But we live in a country where abortion is legal throughout all 9 mos, similar to when the evil of slavery was legal.

“So we work on multiple strategies: changing laws, educating the public, helping of mothers in crisis, etc. We save the babies we can when we can.

“This is comparable to the Underground Railroad, Corrie ten Boom, Irena Sendler, lifeboats on the Titanic, Shifra and Puah, etc etc etc.

“AHA will say incrementalism is giving permission for some babies to die. But those babies are legally to destined to die. We are not giving permission.

“In fact, there is no such thing as an immediatist law. Even the Life Begins at Conception Act is incremental.

“AHA will then say there is “principled” incrementalism vs “unprincipled,” which AHA defines.

“So the LBAC ACT may save US babies, but it leaves all other babies to die in all other countries in the world where abortion is legal. So AHA is saying “and then you can kill the baby” to the countries of China, NKorea, Australia, etc., but that is more moral than a rape/incest exception? I’d say AHA is letting millions and millions of more babies die, applying the logic it imposes on me.

“And what abt babies conceived and killed by IVF? And what abt babies killed by hormonal contraception?

“Unless you pass a worldwide ban against abortion, IVF, and hormonal contraception, your law will be incremental.

“I come at this from the perspective of having held a 21 wk abortion survivor 45 min until he died. This isn’t theory to me, and I don’t have time for legalists who feel superior for taking a loftier position. This is urgent to me, and I think it’s sickening to express willingness to let the baby I held die until all can be saved.”

Well…I think Jill stated her position rather well.
