Be afraid, Planned Barrenhood. Be very afraid. Your days of nuzzling the taxpayer teat are drawing swiftly to an end.
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/print/... -- "Defund the Predators of Planned Parenthood : It is an organization with blood on its hands"
"... Those who dismiss the scandal as an anomaly are in denial or abjectly ignorant.
"In 2007, while an undergrad at UCLA, Rose visited a local campus Planned Parenthood clinic posing as a 14-year-old minor seeking an abortion after being impregnated by a 23-year-old man. California’s mandatory-reporting laws require abortion providers to report statutory rape involving girls under the age of 16. Rose secretly captured video of her visit in which the staff advised her to “figure out a birth date that works,” to obtain the abortion and avoid getting the man in trouble with the law. Instead of vowing to do more to protect girls from predators, Planned Parenthood threatened to sue Rose to shut her up.
"That same year, a teenager came forward in Ohio to blow the whistle on how a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Cincinnati had ignored her cries for help after her father — who had been molesting her for three years from the age of 13 — forced her to have an abortion. She told an abortion staffer, who was required by state law to report suspected abuse to police. But the women’s-health provider so beloved by liberals on Capitol Hill did nothing.
"Another Ohio teenage victim of sexual abuse filed suit against Planned Parenthood after the soccer coach who abused her at age 14 forced her to undergo an abortion.“Although she used a junior-high school I.D. and the coach, 21, paid with a credit card and driver’s license,” the Coshocton (Ohio) Tribune reported,“Planned Parenthood failed to report the abuse.”
"... Shantese Butler, who was left permanently injured and infertile after a botched Planned Parenthood abortion. Students for Life of America reported that Shantese was left with “severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation and a small bowel tear.” In addition, parts of the unborn child were found inside Shantese’s abdomen.
"And don’t forget the Nebraska Planned Parenthood clinic that refused to disclose the terms of a settlement with another victim whose botched abortion resulted in a perforated uterus, massive blood loss, an emergency hysterectomy, permanent infertility, seizures, and lifelong pain and suffering. According to the suit obtained by Life News, the woman told the abortionist and his assistants to stop, but was told:“We can’t stop.” The Planned Parenthood employees held her down to complete the procedure."

Stopping funding for Planned Parenthood would get the government out of health care.

Nixon, Reagan, Bush, and Bush 2 all disagree with you.
None of them stepped up to challenge Roe v. Wade.
But thanks for the votes, sucker!

Step right up, readers, and view yet again the humorous spectacle pitting the La La Land-dwelling, smoke-blowing Topix pro-aborts against the abortion movement's reality-dwelling, rightfully distraught leaders.
Only the latter will candidly admit the true plight of today's pro-abort movement, and their jeremiads have been uttered *before* the post-November 2 flood of new pro-life state legislators and legislatures begin putting even more limits on Big Abortion's bloodlust.
[January 14, 2011] "NARAL Report Gives America D Grade For Limiting Abortions"
"A prominent abortion advocacy group released a state-by-state report on the status of state laws on abortion heading into the 2011 legislative session, and it says America deserves a D grade for limiting abortions too much.
"The report comes as state legislatures are expected to add a significant number of new abortion limits, with some stopping the abortion funding in the state exchanges created under Obamacare, others following Nebraska to ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy based on fetal pain, and others passing more traditional pro-life legislation such as unborn victims bills or parental notification measures.
“It is clear that the results of the 2010 elections could pose serious threats to the progress we celebrated in previous years’ reports,” NARAL president Nancy Keenan complained.“Some of our key pro-choice champions in Congress and in the states are not returning to their positions.”
