At least Planned Parenthood’s new CEO admits abortions are their core mission

Published

on

Pro-lifers have grown accustomed to fighting pro-abortionists over semantics. In particular, calls to defund Planned Parenthood are often met with bogus statistics like “abortions only account for 3% of Planned Parenthood’s business,” which is clearly untrue as you can see from the video above.

But now, we have a different fight on our hands. Dr. Leana Wen, the new CEO of Planned Parenthood, did an interview with left-leaning Buzzfeed. Once again, the media apologists for abortion did what they thought was right by tempering Wen’s radical progressive stances through a headline that attempted to calm any potential negative waters she may be wading into. Here’s the headline and a snippet:

New Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen Wants To Focus On Health Care

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/emaoconnor/planned-parenthood-leana-wen-health-care-abortion-politics?utm_source=dynamicWen, 35, is only about two months into her tenure as the new head of Planned Parenthood, but she hit the ground running with this new campaign that sent the clear message: Planned Parenthood is first and foremost a health care organization, not a political symbol.

This message is not a new one, but the doubling down and commitment to it at the highest level is new and significant. “This Is Health Care” is a very different tone than former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards adopted with campaigns like “#Fight4BirthControl” or “I Stand With PP.”

How did Dr. Wen respond to the flattering headline? She was offended.

By no means does she want anyone to think they’re not going to continue to focus on abortions. In fact, we can wipe away past lies about how Planned Parenthood barely does abortions as their core business. Dr. Wen is at least being honest about what they do and how they plan to expand access to their services to women and the preborn children they want killed.

So much for 3%: Planned Parenthood prez says abortion ‘our core mission’

https://www.liveaction.org/news/planned-parenthood-prez-abortion-mission/Wen has been making media rounds, repeating the claim that healthcare (including abortion) is a “fundamental human right.” While conflating the terms “abortion” and “healthcare” doesn’t make it true, the incessant repetition of such a catch phrase is a clear propaganda effort by the new head of the nation’s largest and most profitable abortion corporation to convince the American public that abortion is totally normal.

However, 40 years of propaganda surrounding abortion — “choice” and “reproductive rights/health” euphemisms included — have not changed the fact that abortion isn’t like any other form of healthcare. It’s not like having a mole removed or a tooth extracted. It’s not a life-saving surgery (and in fact, abortion is never necessary to save a woman’s life). Abortion deliberately and directly kills a developing human being in the womb. No true healthcare seeks to purposely destroy the life of a human being.

This does not bode well for the pro-life movement. Planned Parenthood dropping the pretense of “women’s health” as their core mission means they’ve seen the cultural shift many of us have been seeing. We desperately need to turn the tide on this war.

Lila Rose reveals the heinous statistics about Down Syndrome abortions

Lila Rose reveals the heinous statistics about Down Syndrome abortions

Yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day, and while many celebrated the wonderful successes and challenges overcome by those with Down Syndrome as well as their families, many in the pro-life movement highlighted a disturbing trend. With our ability to identify Down Syndrome from the womb, aborting babies with the condition has become so commonplace, the Down Syndrome population is non-existent in some countries.

Live Action founder Lila Rose took to Twitter to share some of these depressing statistics, including the horrible increased frequency in which it now happens in the United States. Anyone who knows someone with Down Syndrome must acknowledge their value and the fact that their lives should not be snuffed out because the scientific community says it’s a good thing.

Every life is a gift. Every single one of them. The “humane” murder of preborn babies because of their condition is one of the most mystifying stances of the “progressive” left.

San Francisco demonstrates pure hypocrisy by wanting to boot Juul

San Francisco demonstrates pure hypocrisy by wanting to boot Juul

Some believe vape products are a wonderful way to stop cigarette smoking, both for those who are currently smokers as well for future smokers. Others see it as a gateway through which kids can become addicted to nicotine and eventually start smoking real cigarettes. That’s a debate that should be happening through education and public awareness. Unfortunately, San Francisco doesn’t believe in people being able to think for themselves properly, so they’ve decided to consider another measure that will protect the people from their own stupidity.

At the center of this measure is Juul, the fast-growing vape company that happens to be based in San Francisco. Lawmakers have been out in force proclaiming the company is evil and how they don’t want them anywhere near San Francisco. They don’t want e-cigarettes sold in the city. They don’t want the people to be able to have them shipped to the city. They don’t want them used in the city.

Let’s keep in mind that this is a city with more drug addicts than public school students, a rampant homelessness problem, and so many regulations that people need a herd of lawyers just to navigate the process of trying to do business there. They’ve elevated the cost of living to be so prohibitive, only the truly wealthy can live there comfortably, yet it’s a city that proclaims to be caring of their fellow men. In reality, they’ve crafted an authoritarian society within the boundaries of the United States that has been empowered to subvert rights at a grand scale.

Here’s their grand plan:

One bill that Herrera and Walton introduced at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting would ban the sale and shipment of e-cigarettes to San Francisco stores and customer addresses until the U.S. Food and Drug Administration begins a vetting process known as a pre-market review, in which manufacturers must prove their products are appropriate for public health before selling them on the market.

The city already bans youth-friendly flavors like candy and fruit in tobacco products through Proposition E, which voters passed in 2018. Physical stores are barred from selling them. The bill would ban all e-cigarettes regardless of flavor so long as they contain nicotine, and it would also ban the shipment of such items to private residences in San Francisco.

The second bill would ban companies that sell, manufacture and distribute tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, from city property. San Francisco already prohibits tobacco companies from doing business on city property, and this measure would explicitly add e-cigarettes to the existing ban. The proposed bill would not be applied retroactively, so it would not kick Juul out of its current space at Pier 70, but it would prevent e-cigarette companies from leasing city property in the future.

Juul is not producing an illegal substance. It has not been accused of breaking other laws in the way it operates its business. Studies have been done with mixed results about whether or not Juul is a gateway for nicotine use by children, which is why the city voted to ban fruity and other kid-friendly flavors. But rather than address the actual problems within their dysfunctional city, they’d rather draw attention to the evils of vaping.

It’s a wonder how any Libertarians or liberty-loving conservatives can continue living there. It’s the nanny state of nanny states.

San Francisco has become a punchline of a city. They don’t believe in individual rights. They do believe that government can and should try to solve everything. If any American city needs an infusion of conservatism, it’s San Francisco.

Thomas Sowell makes a clear point about Medicare-for-All

Thomas Sowell makes a clear point about Medicare-for-All

How was the left able to take heat away from their Medicare-for-All proposal, and more specifically the estimated $32 trillion price tag over a decade? They tripled down with the Green New Deal, which some estimate would cost upwards near $100 trillion.

So, the price tag of the Democrats’ desired replacement for utterly failing Obamacare is to take current government control over healthcare and put it on a regiment of steroids and methamphetamine. When you’re going through Hell, keep going, I suppose.

But all of this could be alleviated if voters and politicians took a moment to think about the prospects of Medicare-for-All logically. Let’s erase, for a moment, the Utopian notion that taxing rich people extreme amounts will give us enough money to make healthcare free for everyone while also improving the quality. That’s the goal, right? Cheaper, better healthcare is what most people want. Conservatives believe it’s best to pull government administration out of the equation and put it all on a competitive capitalist model that has worked for nearly every other industry for over a century. Hyper-leftists want to add more government control.

Conservative commentator Thomas Sowell has some thoughts on the matter. One in particular can be wrapped up into an eloquent quote that should be ideological checkmate allowing us to win the healthcare debate.

“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.”

Of course, our version of checkmate requires common sense, logic, and basic math skills. These attributes aren’t as readily present on the left, therefore they might hear this logic and still think single-payer makes sense.
