Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood

~ 10 February 2014 ~

by Frank Fluckiger, National Chairman - 

Barack Obama is the first President to address a Planned Parenthood convention. He finished his rousing speech by saying, “I want you to know that you’ve got a President who’s going to be right there with you fighting every step of the way. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”

I was particularly offended by the “God bless you” line — I’m sure you are too.

Tennessee-march-for-life-Stop-abortion-rally Planned Parenthood is a monstrous operation. In 2012, they raked in over $1.1 billion, including $542 million in taxpayer funding via federal and state grants and contracts. Although none of the government money specifically underwrites the abortions they perform, it does allow Planned Parenthood to use private donations to pay for their grisly services. And that’s a big “business” — in 2011 alone, Planned Parenthood performed a record 333,964 abortions.

In reading some background stories about Planned Parenthood, I came across these news items:

*A Planned Parenthood counselor was caught on tape admitting that the organization leaves infants born alive after an abortion to die.

*A Delaware Planned Parenthood clinic experienced five botched [their term, not my definition] abortion emergencies in less than five weeks.

And then there was this:

For the second time this month, pro-life activists helplessly looked on as yet another ambulance rushed away from the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion clinic headed for a hospital emergency room. Emergency workers spent 14 minutes inside the Planned Parenthood office, the last remaining abortion clinic in Missouri, before emerging with a woman on a gurney covered head to toe with a sheet. The ambulance departed without the use of its lights or siren.

Planned Parenthood is an evil business, and the right to life movement does an excellent job exposing and opposing it. I’m proud to say the Constitution Party is part of that cause — we are the only pro-life party in America.

Our platform is crystal clear:

“We affirm the God-given legal personhood of all human beings from fertilization to natural death, without exception. … Under no circumstances may the federal government fund or otherwise support any state or local government or any organization or entity, foreign or domestic, which advocates, encourages or participates in the practice of abortion.”

Every one of our party’s candidates are 100% pro-life. Every one, running for every office, in every state. In 2012, former Missouri State Representative Cynthia Davis was the Constitution Party candidate for Lt. Governor. The Missouri Right to Life Committee endorsed her candidacy. Cynthia said at the time, “We are changing the political landscape. This is the first time Missouri Right to Life has ever endorsed anyone on the Constitution Party ticket.”

We are offering a strong pro-life challenge to the establishment candidates, and the right to life movement is taking notice. That’s why we need your help.

We want to take our pro-life message to thousands who stand up for the unborn. Will you help us do that? May I count on your investment of $20?

You know, this year marks the 40th anniversary of legalized abortion-on-demand. Perhaps a gift of $40 or even $80 should mark this sad milestone. I’ll leave that decision to you.

In 2012, Planned Parenthood’s political action committee donated $190,000 to pro-abortion candidates — that was part of the $3.6 million pay-off to politicians by the powerful pro-abortion movement.

We don’t need millions of dollars — right now we need thousands of right-to-lifers working at the grassroots level, helping Constitution Party candidates. To recruit them, we need your contribution: $20, $40, $80, or more will go a long way in spreading the word: The Constitution Party is the only pro-life party in America.

Let’s get to work defending the unborn.
