Planned Parenthood debuted a new ad the other day, and I couldn’t believe it. First, take a watch and see what you think.

How Far Will Obama Go to Protect Planned Parenthood

Concerns are being expressed over a new rule proposed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that suggests that it plans to ban states from defunding abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.

The notice of proposed rulemaking, “Compliance with Title X Requirements by Project Recipients in Selecting Subrecipients,” outlines that it plans to amend the Code of Federal Regulations to read, “No recipient making subawards for the provision of services as part of its Title X project may prohibit an entity from participating for reasons unrelated to its ability to provide services effectively.”

How to Defund Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty in 5 Steps

It occurred to me that defunding Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty could be done by this Congress if they were to follow the following five steps, and therefore if they fail to accomplish these two goals which a majority of the base of the Republican party support it is purely through a lack of will, not of means.

Step 1: Pass the next Budget Bill with no funding for Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty.

Pretty straightforward.  Obama will veto. Congress should attempt an override to gauge strength of the override as they should expect the veto.

Step 2: Target Congressmen and Senators up for election next fall with spending for Projects in their state.

Pass another funding bill, this time including money for a project in the state of a Congressman or Senator that is up for reelection next fall, but not having funding for Planned Parenthood or Executive Amnesty.  Obama will veto.  Congress will attempt an override and see what happens with the targeted individual.

Step 3: If Congressman or Senator targeted in Step 2 refuses to join override, take out funding for media in the state that was unable to get funding against the target.

Tell the people of that state how they could have gotten funding for their project, but their elected official thought it was more necessary to have Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty funded than money for their state.  Attempt Step 2 again, maybe with a different set than the last time.

Step 4: Enlist the help of the Republican Presidential Candidates.

Use the debates and/or candidates stump speeches in the targeted states to continually drive the point home.

Step 5: Use every interview to stress that you are funding the entire government, and spending more, but the Democrats refuse to sign because of Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty.

The point is that you’re willing to spend more money, but the President refuses to back down on two unpopular items.

 

That’s it, five steps and you get Planned Parenthood and Executive Amnesty defunded.  I’m not saying this is easy, or that the left will not have attacks, but this method will work.  What do you think?

More Videos Coming Out Against Planned Parenthood

Are the videos on Planned Parenthood making an impact?  For those that are already pro-life, the gruesome facts of abortion are part of the reason that they’re pro-life.  The ones that these videos are targeting are the fence-sitting people who are pro-choice.  You know the ones, those that say they are personally against abortion but that they wouldn’t stop someone else from getting one.  These videos are intended to get those people to firmly join the pro-life side and restrict if not eliminate abortion.

When the first video came out, it made quite a splash and it was powerful.  When the second video came out, I thought, “Wow, they made sure to get more than one source” and they had to, since the first thing that Planned Parenthood could say was that this didn’t happen in multiple places– it was just this one doctor.  Now there are rumblings that there are even worse videos waiting in the wings ready to come out.

Will this have an effect on these moderates?

It’s About Abortion

Supporters of Planned Parenthood

If you read the articles from Planned Parenthood supporters, you’d get the impression that the House Majority is set to send women back into slavery to men:

The dusty old argument that female sexuality is a subversive force that needs to be strictly controlled isn’t as dead as we thought. The mainstream conservative movement is bringing it out of hibernation, and this time with a twist: now they’re arguing that women need to have their rights taken from them for their own good.  [Female Sexuality Still Terrifying to Conservative Lawmakers – AlterNet]

The problem is that these writers are totally missing the point.  It isn’t about whether women should have access to STD treatments or birth control, but whether or not Federal Dollars should go toward funding Abortion.

Sexual Rights as Defined By Planned Parenthood

A Couple

One of the things that should bother everyone about Planned Parenthood and Abortion is that the company that provides the abortions is also the same company that is being paid money by the federal government and seeks to profit only if the person chooses to terminate the pregnancy.

There is no way—even if you agree with abortion—that you can justify this situation.

If you cannot believe that a CareNet Pregnancy Center (pro-life) counselor could be objective, how could you believe a counselor who’s paycheck comes from abortion could be completely objective, or even attempt to encourage anything but the “easy way” out.

The Ultrasound

May 8th, 2007 Viewed 7612 times, 2 so far today

Baby UltrasoundIn high school, I attended a pro-life rally in which the 28 minute film, A Silent Scream was shown. In it, a twelve-week-old baby is aborted. Powerful.

In these days of increasing evil, it’s refreshing to fight on in the pro-life cause by whatever positive means we can.

Enter the power of the Ultrasound. Crisis pregnancy centers across the United States are using them with phenomenal success. There is nothing like seeing your active son or daughter, squirming on-screen, thumb in mouth, heart pulsing. And the newer 3D-4D sonograms are amazing. This parent-child awakening is saving lives. And it’s making the pro-choice front sit up and take notice.
