Congress takes the first steps in investigating Planned Parenthood


A Congressional committee has taken the first steps in investigating the Planned Parenthood abortion business over abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up cases of sex trafficking.

In obtained, Rep. Cliff Stearns, a Florida Republican who is the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Investigations, writes to Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood.

“Pursuant to Rules X and XI of the United States House of Representatives, the Committee on Energy and Commerce is examining the institutional practices and policies of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and its affiliates, and its handing of federal funding,” Stearns writes. “That Committee has questions about the politics in place and actions undertaken by PPFA and its affiliates relating to its use of federal funding and its compliance with federal restrictions on the funding of abortion.”

The letter asks Richards to comply with current federal regulations and legal obligations by providing Congress with a wide range of documents within two weeks of the date of the letter.

Fourth trimester abortion apparently OK in Canada

I've seen this at many different sources and it hasn't gotten any better from the first. has this one:

An Alberta judge has let a woman who strangled her newborn son walk free by arguing that Canada’s absence of a law on abortion signals that Canadians “sympathize” with the mother.

“We live in a country where there is no protection for children in the womb right up until birth and now this judge has extended the protection for the perpetrator rather than the victim, even though the child is born and as such should be protected by the court,” said Jim Hughes, national president of Campaign Life Coalition.

Katrina Effert of Wetaskiwin, Alberta gave birth secretly in her parents’ downstairs bathroom on April 13, 2005, and then later strangled the newborn and threw his body over a fence. She was 19 at the time.

She has been found guilty of second-degree murder by two juries, but both times the judgment was thrown out by the appeals court. In May, the Alberta Court of Appeal overturned her 2009 murder conviction and replaced it with the lesser charge of infanticide.

On Friday, Effert got a three-year suspended sentence from Justice Joanne Veit of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench. As a result, she was able to walk out of court, though she will have to abide by certain conditions.

It's all fun and games at Planned Parenthood

Sickening. via :

The butchers at Planned Parenthood only seem like fiends from hell. Actually, they are people, just like the babies they kill. We’ve  what a lively sense of humor they have. A former abortion industry worker shares some more :

It took a few weeks before I got the alarm code to our clinic. I guess it takes that long for them to trust you. I remember getting the code and feeling shocked. The code was 2229. That seems innocent … until they told me what it spelled out … BABY. Really. Wow. We were really joking about that … our alarm code was mocking the murder of children.

A few weeks later I was introduced to our freezer in the POC (products of conception) lab. This was the freezer that held the fetal tissue until the biohazard truck came for disposal. I found out the name for that freezer … the nursery. Again, that was a joke. How had that become a joke?

A few days later I learned the password to our phone system … 2229 … BABY.

8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rules on SD Informed Consent law

The law passed in 2005 is still in contention, but the Appeals court has just overturned the decision of the district court's ruling in the case, making it a win for life. via .

Advocates for life captured a huge victory today in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals where judges ruled the state of South Dakota can require abortionists to provide specific warnings to patients about just exactly what an abortion is and does.

The much-fought case previously has been to the 8th Circuit for arguments over a preliminary injunction, and the ruling today affirmed part and overturned part of the district court's decision that eventually resulted.

Selective pregnancy based on gender getting easier

How long until designer babies are the only ones allowed to make it all the way to term? to determine the sex of a baby as soon as seven weeks into a pregnancy with a 95% accuracy rate. Want a boy but getting a girl? No problem, just abort and try again. Wanted blue eyes but getting brown? Not a problem.

THIS month brought news that could alter the landscape of American pregnancy.

Tests using DNA to determine a fetus’s sex were shown to be remarkably accurate, able to tell with 95 percent certainty as early as seven weeks into pregnancy, if a woman is carrying a boy or girl. The tests, which detect the fetus’s DNA in a mother’s blood or urine, are available in drugstores and online, and reports about their accuracy are likely to increase their popularity.

But the tests also raise ethical questions: whether couples will abort fetuses of an unwanted sex — as has happened in China and India, where boys now outnumber girls. The possibility discomfits many, and is also providing fuel for anti-abortion politics.

But at least the governement is not , so at least for now it's up to the parent(s) to decide whether the unborn meet their high standard of acceptability. Oh, wait...

Using welfare for crack is OK, and don't dare touch funding for Planned Parenthood

Two different articles caught my eye recently, both regarding public funding of different entitlement programs. First, to do the unthinkable: make sure welfare recipients use their checks for necessities like food and not on stuff like crack. Apparently the ACLU and Florida Dems have a problem with that because they prefer those folks to have a way of financing their habit.

You’d think that  would be a relatively non-controversial proposal, but you’d be wrong since there are liberals involved.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday defended recent legislation that requires adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug screenings, saying the law provides “personal accountability.”

“It’s not right for taxpayer money to be paying for somebody’s drug addiction,” Scott told CNN’s T.J. Holmes on Sunday. “On top of that, this is going to increase personal responsibility, personal accountability. We shouldn’t be subsidizing people’s addiction.”

But the ACLU of Florida, which has already filed suit against Scott over a measure requiring government employees to undergo random drug testing, disagrees, and may sue over the welfare law as well.
