In God's name, drive the stake!
July 31, 2015

The recent news and videos of Planned Parenthood's trade in the selective crushing of human babies and then sale of their harvested body parts have horrified us all.  

Take heart, for there is a light dawning on us. 

But first, we must guard ourselves in the oppressive darkness while powerful forces of evil prowl throughout our society. 

Planned Parenthood is too much like the vampires of the old movies, living out the depraved life of a wretched soul that has bound itself to the devil. The vampire consumes itself in a shameful, bloodthirsty quest for the most vulnerable women and children to prey upon. 

Like the Hollywood vampire, Planned Parenthood has reinvented itself as a slick, one-dimensional machine that publicly shows little of the raw and exposed hatred that inspired its founder, Margaret Sanger.  

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it,” advised the sexually obsessed Ms. Sanger. 

Like all vampires, though, Sanger and her dried out corpse of Planned Parenthood can’t help but project their own fate in a wishful attempt to transfer the terrible consequences of their actions onto others. 

We’ll have none of that. Planned Parenthood and the very real souls who occupy its corporate labyrinth will very soon find themselves gnashing their teeth through the fires of hell—equally real and showing no hint of the “tolerance” fad washing upon our culture’s littered shores. 

The day is coming when we will see this monster defeated. Planned Parenthood has run the course of all vampires, arrogantly presuming to “live” an existence that has been extended much too long, growing increasingly reckless and hateful in its bloodlust. Planned Parenthood is crashing against the vengeful mob that clamors outside its walls. This mob—the hundreds of millions of once innocent, preborn babies who lost their lives to either violent abortions or the silent flushing out of the home that might have been their mother’s womb if it had not been made inhospitable by chemical contraceptives—will make its voice heard. 

With the dawn comes the pro-life vanguard. Hundreds of thousands of believers rise from their mantle of truth and boldly proclaim a new day. Morning prayers rise earnestly to heaven, and streams of light respond by charging into the darkness and piercing the cold heart of the monster of the night. 

The decayed corpse, exposed suddenly to the light, shudders and crumbles into the soil of America as the dust it had always been. 

Have faith. Planned Parenthood will be consumed in its war of desperation. Then the scavengers will have their feast, the battlefield will be picked clean, and both flowers and the faithful will bloom again in Christ’s saving grace.

Planned Parenthood Horror Show Defines the Line between Sanity and Depravity
July 28, 2015

This past week has been bizarre. First we heard from Politico that the Obama Department of Justice was considering a probe of the Center for Medical Progress: “In response to a request by House Democrats, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday afternoon that Justice would ‘review all of the information and determine what the appropriate steps moving forward would be.’” CMP founder David Daleiden wasn’t phased at this news, saying in a statement: “They will attack me and my organization all day long, but that does not change the facts about what our investigation has uncovered and what the American people now know—that Planned Parenthood is engaged in an enterprise-wide operation that traffics and sells baby body parts.”

A few days later Americans watched Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, tell ABC News that the CMP is “well-funded,” which of course is very far from the truth. Richards also stated that “Planned Parenthood does not profit” from the sale of the baby body parts and she claimed that the CMP videos were “selectively edited,” though they can be found in their entirety on the organization’s website. While all the information has not, yet, been made public, we are confident that those who did the undercover work will be able to satisfy everyone that Planned Parenthood does profit and has broken federal laws.

Richards said many things that are far from credible during her interview, but the most unbelievable choice of words was when she stated that PP has “the highest standards. The care and health care and safety of our patients is our most important priority.”

It occurs to me that the “highest standards” precludes killing innocent babies and deceiving untold numbers of expectant mothers. Apparently the millions Planned Parenthood has made off the slaughter of preborn babies, no matter how or where they are killed, is not on her radar. 

This brings me back to the law. What seems to have been overlooked in so much of what has been written and said about the Planned Parenthood exposé is the 1993 NIH Revitalization Act and how this law can be used to clarify the fact that Planned Parenthood has potentially broken the law in many ways. According to Dianne Irving, “Just knowing the details of two of the sections (Part II: Sections 111 and 112) of that Act will help clarify how egregious these Planned Parenthood activities truly are, and why Congress must step up to the plate and defund them. It would also seem that there are multiple legal precedents in the Act to prosecute them.”

In a short summary of the ways in which this law could have been violated, we find that “fetal tissue” has been erroneously defined. We also find that fetal tissue, according to the law, can only be used for therapeutic reasons. Yet Planned Parenthood’s “donation” of entire organs from the dead babies suggests that experimental research is what is being done. If so, PP has violated the law and is guilty of a crime.

And the list goes on! Who is investigating these and other possible violations of federal law? Is your elected official even aware of the 1993 law?

If pro-life Americans are not vigilant in defending and protecting the innocent from the onslaught of abuses perpetrated by Planned Parenthood on a daily basis, who will be?

Please hold your elected officials accountable, and remember that no matter how the preborn baby is murdered or where, every single abortion is an abominable act of killing.

In closing, I repeat the wise words of American Life League board member, Hugh Brown: 

I ask you to go online to find your representatives and your senators. Call them. Do not hesitate. Do not wait. American Life League is asking millions upon millions of good-hearted Americans who value freedom and who value life to pick up their phones on Friday, July 31—FREEDOM FRIDAY—and overwhelm Congress with a million phone calls. Between the hours of 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, call your congressman. Call your senators. Tell them to protect freedom of speech, tell them to protect freedom of the press, and tell them to investigate and go after the real lawbreakers: Planned Parenthood. 

Join American Life League this Freedom Friday and help us defend David Daleiden’s constitutional right to free speech and tell Congress that “Evil Incorporated,” also known as Planned Parenthood, must be investigated, defunded, and shut down.

Don’t let the horror show continue!

All Babies Want Us to Tell the Truth
July 24, 2015

The past couple of weeks have filled the airwaves with the truth about what Planned Parenthood’s many medical practitioners do to “serve” the public. A gory picture is emerging as we witness the disturbing conversations from videos issued by the Center for Medical Progress.

David Daleiden, one of the leaders of CMP, has spoken on several Fox News programs over the past week and has explained repeatedly that the videos are all available, in their entirety, on the CMP website. Furthermore, he asserts that, contrary to the claim by pro-aborts, no video has been doctored.

Alleging that the videos are doctored is only the beginning of the inane statements being made by those who oppose the video exposé and clearly oppose the truth-telling these videos represent. 

Juan Williams, liberal commentator and columnist, says that these videos are being used to “politicize abortion.” He goes on to defend all the services Planned Parenthood provides to women, as if to suggest that the butchering of little babies is an aside to the marvels one can experience at the hands of this monstrous organization!

Analyzing the news coverage—or lack thereof—of the videos, News Busters wrote that liberal journalists “relied on euphemistic language. Baby parts were ‘fetal organs,’ and the ‘selling’ of those parts was assuredly ‘donating.’ While journalists were admittedly squeamish, they argued they would have the same reaction to things like heart surgery and childbirth.”

Yet the truth is breaking through more often than not. It is clear that CMP has been meticulous in going about the task of using hidden cameras to capture gruesome discussions on tape. CMP operatives know what to look for and how to expose it in all its ugliness. We are positive this is why Daleiden sought guidance from one of our nation’s leading scientists, Teresa Deisher, PhD. 

Theresa Deisher helped to prepare Daleiden for his role as a biomedical representative, teaching him the ins and outs of the field. 

She holds a Ph.D. in molecular and cellular physiology from Stanford University and worked for more than 20 years in the commercial biomedical industry. As her respect for the unborn grew, so did her intolerance for working in a field where experimenting on material from aborted babies is rampant. She is now the president of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute and CEO of AVM Biotechnology; both companies have a mission to end the use of aborted babies in biomedical research.

With advice like that, it is no wonder these videos are making an impact by presenting irrefutable facts coming from the mouths of the very practitioners who are responsible for the deaths of these babies.

Where we go from here should not surprise anyone, including those who would give anything to silence the mounting calls for an end to Planned Parenthood’s reign of terror. 

Investigative hearings have already been scheduled by the U. S. House of Representatives. In the United States Senate, Senator Ted Cruz is leading the charge, calling for hearings as well. And the pressure for Congress to do so will mount. Of that there is no doubt.

One thing is crystal clear when it comes to politics, however. In our quest to fight for an end to the taxpayer support for Planned Parenthood’s evil empire, there can be no compromise. 

This is why two proposed bills to defund Planned Parenthood, H.R. 3134 and S. 1836, are NOT the answer. H.R. 3134 and S. 1836 are flawed and do NOT defund Planned Parenthood; the companion bills permit, through rape, incest, and life of the mother exceptions, our tax dollars to continue going to Planned Parenthood for its baby-killing business. 

This is totally unacceptable. 

As Jim Sedlak, executive vice president of American Life League, has said, we must stand together for ALL the babies! It makes no sense to put exceptions on abortion in any bill, least of all these. We demand that H.R. 3134 and S. 1836 be corrected! 

Pro-life America, UNITE! All babies want us to tell the truth. Now is the time for unity in this truth.

Contact your members of Congress and tell them you want no more tax money going to Planned Parenthood. Find your representatives here and your senators here

Dismembering Babies Profits Slaughterhouses
July 21, 2015

In the recent reports about Planned Parenthood’s selling of baby body parts, a particular research group at the forefront of using human cells for scientific research has come to our attention. That company is StemExpress. 

StemExpress describes itself as “a multi-million dollar company that supplies human blood, tissue products, primary cells and other clinical specimens to biomedical researchers around the world to fuel regenerative medicine and translational research. Founded in 2010, we offer the largest variety of raw material in the industry, as well as fresh, fixed and cryopreserved human primary cells.”

Among other news reporting agencies, National Catholic Register followed up on the explosive undercover video report of last week, telling readers that, while the discussion in 

the video appears to discount a profit motive, StemExpress, one of the recipients of fetal material from Planned Parenthood mentioned in the exchange, sells vials of fetal liver cells from anywhere between $488 and $24,250.

However, StemExpress marketed its program on its literature and website as “financially profitable” to participating clinics, and it carried an endorsement from Dr. Dorothy Furgerson of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.

A representative of StemExpress informed the Register on July 14 that the company is aware of the video and will be following up with a response. However, the Register received no reply to its follow-up calls and later found the company’s website temporarily shut down for “maintenance.”

Judging from the nebulous statement StemExpress issued and the hesitancy of company officials to discuss its practices publicly, we can surmise that something is amiss. Perhaps the millions in profit earned by the company derive from scientific experiments similar to those of a previous era. 

The difference between those tragic human experiments documented in the history of the United States’ involvement with such things and those revealed during this past week resides solely in the age of the individual whose bodies are rendered more valuable to the market than their dignity as human beings. 

Document logs posted by the Center for Medical Progress are evidence of the economic value. An entry dated January 13, 2013, reads:

This is a Procurement Log of baby parts harvested from Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s flagship abortion clinic in San Jose, CA, on January 10, 2013. A total of 9 specimens were harvested from 8 different fetuses by StemExpress. At the time, StemExpress paid Planned Parenthood $50/specimen, so this one day of procurement at one clinic yielded $450 for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte. StemExpress also harvests from PPMM clinics in Sacramento, Fresno, and Stockton, and so a similar yield at those clinics just one day per week means at least $1800/week, $7200/month, and $86,400/year for this Planned Parenthood affiliate.

There are many more such examples. The unifying theme among these is that, quite clearly, the value of the human parts equals a sum deemed to be greater than the sum of those parts within a human being’s body.

Latest Planned Parenthood Project: Cut Up That Baby and Sell His Parts!
July 17, 2015

The latest undercover video of a Planned Parenthood employee, done by David Daleiden, project lead at the newly public Center for Medical Progress, is shocking on several levels. In the video, we see obstetrician/gynecologist Deborah Nucatola openly discussing charging for baby body parts. According to LifeSiteNews, Nucatola “seemed to describe performing an abortion procedure outlawed by Congress a dozen years ago.” Daleiden expounded upon this in an interview and stated, “You can take her words in the video and line it up point by point with the legal definition of partial birth abortion.”  

Nucatola, the senior director of medical research for Planned Parenthood, is apparently comfortable with her profession. Otherwise, how could she sit during a lunch meeting and discuss killing babies over a glass of wine? 

Nucatola and her employer, Planned Parenthood, would assure you that there is nothing wrong with what was captured on this video. In fact, Planned Parenthood’s Eric Ferrero, vice president of communications, said in a prepared statement,   

In health care, patients sometimes want to donate tissue to scientific research that can help lead to medical breakthroughs, such as treatments and cures for serious diseases. Women at Planned Parenthood who have abortions are no different. At several of our health centers, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does—with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards. There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field. 

Seriously? Are we to believe that there is no profit motive in Planned Parenthood’s alleged “donation” process or the practice of slicing and dicing babies? Come on, Ferrero! One needs only to read the brochure from a body parts procurement company—a brochure that tells clinics four times how providing baby parts will increase their profits—to know the truth. Note that the brochure contains an endorsement by the chief medical director of Planned Parenthood’s largest affiliate. Anyone who is familiar with practices at Planned Parenthood knows better, for money drives everything this organization does. 

Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, confirms that “Planned Parenthood receives $528 million a year from taxpayers, and $400 million of that is from the Medicaid program. At the very least, Congress and the states should instantly suspend all Medicaid reimbursements to the organization.” 

So none of this gruesome news is really all that surprising, as my 15-year-old grandson stated moments after watching a news report on the questions raised in that video. His wisdom reflects the truth of the matter.  

This is why every American should sign the current petition and spread the word that it is long past time for the government to deny Planned Parenthood our tax dollars to carry out its horrific practices. And this is why Americans who see through the fog of Planned Parenthood’s façade are striving to shut it down, no matter what its source of income might be. 

While Mr. Ferrero defines what is discussed in the video as “scientific research,” many of us would call it murder in the first degree. To use the parts of one human being’s body to allegedly research treatment for another person’s condition is beyond the pale! 

Enough already! Stop the slicing and dicing of preborn children today!
