When was the last documented case of a woman getting pregnant by herself?

Misogyny and ignorance are alive and well among the RW haters.   Maybe they are frustrated incels, who knows.    What I do know is that jimmy merely did a cut/paste of an article, isn't that against TOS?   Perhaps he has found a second identity or like minded "person" to feed him the opportunity to troll on this site.    If that is what to expect from the haters of women who make their own decisions about their own bodies, then they are in for a very bumpy ride.

Planned Parenthood founded on racism, belief in protecting society against 'the unfit'

 

Minorities crammed into impoverished areas in inner cities should not be having so many babies. And, of course, these minorities (including most of America’s immigrants) are inferior in the human race, as are the physically and mentally handicapped. We should require mandatory sterilizations of those less desirable and promote easy access to abortion. And since sex should be a free-for-all, we must provide birth control and abortions to teenagers too. It’s all for the greater good and for a more intelligent, liberated, healthier population.

 

Feel a bit enraged by the sentiments above?

 

They absolutely sicken me.

 

If you are feeling squeamish or angry too, then you should call your representatives in Congress and demand an end to your tax dollars funding Planned Parenthood. You also can sign the petition at LiveAction.org.

 

For such are the foundational beliefs of this inherently racist organization and its celebrated founder, Margaret Sanger, who still is lauded on the Planned Parenthood website. Of course, in the lavish online praise of Sanger, conveniently absent is her advocacy for “a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” (The quote is from her article “A Plan for Peace.”) Or her promotion of the “American Baby Code,” in which she seeks to “protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.”

 

Also missing is Sanger’s fear of her racist views being exposed, as recorded in a 1939 letter to an ally: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” Which is exactly what she set out and succeeded in doing.

 

Planned Parenthood is largely the reason why black babies are aborted in America three times more often than white babies, and Hispanic preborns are killed 1½ times more often than whites. In fact, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention research compiled by

 

TooManyAborted.com, “Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. More than HIV. More than heart disease. More than cancer. Abortion snuffs out more black lives than all other causes of death combined.” 

 

Planned Parenthood masquerades as a benevolent organization, claiming to offer a full array of women’s health care services to disadvantaged women. From the way Planned Parenthood markets itself, one would think it offers basics such as mammograms and prenatal health care — especially for poor women living in the nation’s most impoverished neighborhoods.

 

But it does not. Mammograms are nowhere to be found. And, as LiveAction.org recently revealed in an extensive investigation in the 41 states where undercover recordings are legal, 92 out of 97 clinics contacted admitted that they do not provide prenatal care. The bottom line is that those ultrasound machines in Planned Parenthood are used to facilitate the killing of preborn babies, not care for them.

What Planned Parenthood does offer en masse in its “clinics” — which are strategically located in target areas such as college campuses and in impoverished, inner-city neighborhoods — are birth control and abortions. In fact, a baby is aborted at a Planned Parenthood clinic at an average rate of every 90 seconds.

 

Why college campuses? Why poor, minority inner-city neighborhoods?

 

Because Planned Parenthood holds a worldview that young women should be able to have sex without consequences or responsibility. Because Planned Parenthood wants these same young women to come back to their clinics for their abortions when the birth control fails. And because Planned Parenthood still seeks to provide abortions for minorities over whites. Today, Planned Parenthood may not be racist in its words, but it is still overtly racist in its deeds.

 

Thanks to the brilliant work of LiveAction.org, TheCenterforMedicalProgress.org and other truth seekers, we now know that Planned Parenthood traffics in human baby body parts, that it covers up the sexual trafficking of minors, that it engages in racist practices, that it provides birth control to underage girls without parental consent and that it does not provide the most basic of women’s health care services.

 

America is better than this.

What mick points out is true...ONLY not just for Planned Parenthood.  Consider this: 

 

IF there is a real societal need identified, the society itself should take responsibility for it.  Only then can a sufficiently wide ranging solution to the problem be identified and resolved effectively. That means Government is the only body that can do it.  It also means that IS the legitimate function OF Government.  I believe the Constitution says something like that.

 

That means elected officials MUST do what the People elected them to do.  Individually, the People lack the adequate means and capability to do that. Government, staffed with competent people and adequate funds can evaluate and design the necessary means to get this done.  It is, after all is said, what they are put there for. 

 

It is not tolerable to shirk that responsibility, certainly not by Government and just as certainly not by the People themselves.

 

That is a self-evident truth all by itself.

 

Pushing any such need into the "private sector", whether charitable, religious, volunteerism and the like allows those who shirk their responsibility to do just that. The Social Contract is a real contract...and it must be met.

Rage-filled Tennessee minister is LIVID wicked women are donating to Planned Parenthood in his name

 

I have already sent in the first of many monthly donations in his name...

 

I've even included with each donation a stamped addressed postcard with a thank you message so PP doesn't have to waste valuable labor and materials...

 

 


This approach is not a Good Idea however well-intentioned

 

Thats exactly what Trump & the Republicans want to happen and it's ridiculous to support these miguided proposals - Trump & the GOP want to pass the burden for any program they don;t like onto a limited number of volunteers and the uninformed

 

1. There is no - LINE ITEM - veto in the Federal Budget for Planned Parenthood - it's included in the amount of money allocated to the State through Medicaid Reimbursement along with the bills for all other Medicaid Service Providers in each state

 

By supporting Planned Parenthood through additional Volunteer Donations - the GOP will point to this as another reason PP does not need Federal Tax Dollar Support and becuase it's included in the Lump Sum payments to the States from the Federal Government through the Medicaid System - it will allow the Federal Government to restrict and deminish all Medicaid Reimbursement to the States not just Planned Parenthood

    Excellent way to frustrate those who want to control a woman at a very basic level.  

 

    Then the blah blah blah, religious interepretation.    

 

    As 60% of all abortions are spontaneous, who is to blame and what should that "punishment" be.    Fundies never seem to want to blame " their gawd" for this.

1- Planned parenthood helps families avoid pregnancies - so I support that.

2- If you are anti abortion -- don't have one

3- Live your own life and leave others  to their own life

For the last 50 years Republicans have ranted against a Woman's right to control her own body, but never even tried to overturn Roe v Wade - it made too good a campaign issue among their lofo voter base.

 

Now their Leader, Der Trumper, is too dumb to understand this and will deprive millions of poor women of ALL their reproductive health services, along with all their other health services, by defunding PP and repealing ACA. Job #1 for Progressives will be to educate voters about what this really means so we can eliminate the Republican majorities in 2018.
