"CELEBRATES" 100 YEARS
proposes a Resolution to Honor Planned Parenthood's 100th Anniversary
it came to my attention that the New Jersey Assembly proposed a bill to
commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Planned Parenthood, I had
to write to them. AR
182 was introduced by Asm. Andrew Zwicker and Vincent Prieto on October 13,
2016, with a vote scheduled for October 20.
It has come to my attention that the Assembly has scheduled
a vote for this Thursday, October 20th on AR 182, a Resolution to Honor Planned
Parenthood's 100th Anniversary. I'm
writing to say that I object to the passing of this legislation and I urge you
to vote NO on this bill.
There is no good reason for our government to pass
legislation in support of this nonprofit business entity.
Do you want to be part of a celebration of 100 years of deception and
Following is a sample of my research on Planned Parenthood
(PP). I include the text from
several articles as well as the links to the specific source for each one:
PP was founded by Margaret Sanger, who
with the eugenics movement, a philosophy that stipulates that society may be
improved by barring those deemed unfit from having children. In her book Woman
and the New Race, she wrote that birth control was to play a key role in
bringing about her vision. According
to Sanger, 'Birth control itself, often denounced as
a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the
process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of
those who will become defectives'".
A coalition of pro-life groups has started a campaign
called #100YearsofAbuse to voice their opposition to PP. In
the statement, they speak of the PP's Margaret Sanger award, "an honor
awarded annually by the Planned
Parenthood Federation of America since 1966. Created
to honor the legacy of Margaret
Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood,
it is the Federation's highest honor."
BTW, Hilary Clinton received the Sanger Award and spoke of
her admiration for Sanger. http://www.weeklystandard.com/sec.-clinton-stands-by-her-praise-of-eugenicist-margaret-sanger/article/28444
Some quotes and viewpoints of Sanger and Planned
1. "The most merciful thing that a large family does
to one of its infant members is to kill it." Margaret Sanger, Women
and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)
2. On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and
racial minorities: "More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that
is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
3. On respecting the rights of the mentally ill:
In her "Plan for Peace," Sanger outlined her strategy for eradication
of those she deemed "feebleminded." Among the steps included in her
evil scheme were immigration restrictions; compulsory sterilization; segregation
to a lifetime of farm work; etc. Birth Control Review, April 1932, p. 107
4. Planned Parenthood on Pregnancy: PP views the state of
gestation as an abnormal condition or disease. Speaking for the organization,
Dr. Warren Hern refers to human pregnancy as "an episodic, moderately
extended chronic condition ... May be defined as an illness ... Treated by
evacuation of the uterine contents..." ("Is Pregnancy Really
Normal?" Family Planning Perspective, Planned Parenthood, vol. 3, No. 1,
Jan. 1971, pg. 9)
5. PP seeks to destroy
parents' roles and
responsibilities in raising their own children to make wise choices by
preventing them from doing their parental duty: "If your parents are stupid
enough to deny you access to birth control, and you are under 18, you can get it
on your own. Call Planned Parenthood." Planned Parenthood
advertisement, Dallas Observer, Jan. 30, 1986
1. In the past 100 years, it
has aborted at least 6,803,782 unborn babies, according to its own annual
2. Several women also have died after having abortions at
Planned Parenthood facilities. Two years ago, it paid
a $2 million settlement to the family of an Illinois women who died from a
botched abortion at one of its facilities. The Planned Parenthood facility
five hours before sending the woman
to the hospital and never called 911.
3. Pro-life leaders also are looking into another
abortion-related death in
involving a young woman named Cree Erwin. Erwin died just three days after she
had an abortion at the Planned
Parenthood facility in Kalamazoo on June 30, 2016, according
to records obtained by Operation Rescue.
4. More recently, the abortion giant also has faced public
scrutiny for its potentially
illegal sales of aborted baby body parts. In connection to the scandal, last
week the Orange County District Attorney's Office filed a
lawsuit against two California companies that allegedly sold aborted baby parts
from Planned Parenthood.
5. The abortion chain also has been caught
failing to report the sexual abuse of young girls. Undercover investigations
by Live Action revealed some of its employees were willing
to help cover up child sex trafficking, and others gave
very young teens dangerous advice about practicing sadomasochism, or torture
sex, viewing pornography online and circumventing laws that require parental
involvement in reproductive health decisions.
Operation Rescue questions Planned
of their abortion facilities as providing "high quality care." Out of the 53
medical emergencies Operation Rescue has documented during the first 10 months
of 2015, a full half of them have occurred at Planned Parenthood facilities.
Parenthood is conducts 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S., but yet they are responsible for half of the complications we see,"
explained Newman. "Granted, our numbers are not comprehensive by any means,
but it is an indicator that Planned Parenthood clinics are at least as
dangerous, if not more so, as non-Planned Parenthood facilities. They are all
indistinguishable apples in a very rotten barrel." http://www.lifenews.com/2015/11/10/planned-parenthood-hides-botched-abortion-in-call-to-911-she-was-having-a-procedure/
sting has exposed several abortionists who openly admit they would let a
baby die if a live birth were to occur in spite of the attempted abortion.
The abortion industry says that this situation just doesn't happen. So that
begs the question, how many babies are born alive as a result of botched
abortions? How many are left to die or killed? While much of the
devastating truth may never be known, what we are able to know is startling.
According to the ACLJ's research and statistics recorded by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 362 babies born
alive following a botched abortion have died in the last decade. While
the circumstances surrounding their deaths and whether their lives could have
been spared with proper medical attention are mostly unknown, what is known is
that an attempted abortion is the only cause of death listed for these newborns
and that they were born alive before dying.
educating pregnant women about the risks involved with abortions.
(We need to do something about this! Legislation on Informed Consent must
become a top priority!)
Abortion advocates claim that abortion is a safe procedure
and is, in fact, "safer" than childbirth. These claims are false and
ignore the medical data. Abortion causes harm - both physical and psychological
- and this harm impacts large numbers of American women every year. Given that
over 50 million abortions have been performed since 1973, the number of women
harmed by abortion is considerable and growing.
Therefore, I urge you to share this information with your
colleagues and I urge you to vote NO on this bill.
