Planned Parenthood on the Hot Seat

“Planned Parenthood has made a business out of destroying that which God has created. It performs over 327,000 abortions a year, all while receiving roughly $500 million in annual funding from the taxpayer dollar. The one-sided relationship between Planned Parenthood’s ever-growing bank account and American taxpayers must be severed.”
– Representative Diane Black (R-TN-06), U.S. House of Representatives

The above quote by Representative Diane Black, of Tennessee’s Congressional District 6, was made in Congress on July 21st as she (with 80 original cosponsors) introduced H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 to enact a one-year moratorium on all federal funding for Planned Parenthood (PP), so Congress and the states could investigate current charges.

H.R. 3134 has two parts: Subsection (a) installs a moratorium, but Subsection (b) allows PP to continue abortions that result from rape or incest or “place the woman in danger of death.”

What should Congress investigate?
Congress will not investigate the legality of abortion, since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973. However, Congress must confirm (a) the authenticity of the videos released by The Center for Medical Progress, (b) the procedures PP uses, (c) whether PP is harvesting baby parts and (d) selling them. If they are, (e) who buys them, and (f) how are they used?

Video No. 1. On July 14th the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a video of two prolife activists having lunch with Planned Parenthood senior director of medical research Deborah Nucatola. The video was made last year on July 25, 2014 with “police quality undercover cameras” in a Los Angeles restaurant.

The two prolife activists had worked three years to build a cover identity as representatives of Biomax Procurement Services that was interested in fetal research. On YouTube, CMP, reportedly, posted the entire video, and a shorter version that went viral.

Between sips of wine, Dr. Nucatola explained how carefully she performs an abortion to crush the body, while protecting designated organs. She said it this way: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver … so I’m not gonna crush that part; I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

When asked about prices for organs and tissue, she said, “You know, I would throw a number out, I would say it’s probably anywhere from $30 to $100, depending on the facility and what’s involved. It just has to do with space issues, are you sending someone there that’s going to do everything … is there shipping involved? Is someone going to be there to pick it up?”

Selling baby parts was an issue years ago. In 1999, a 24-hour tissue collection service at abortion clinics was funded by federal taxes via the National Institutes of Health, a Division of Public Health, operating under the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Prices were based on gestational age and condition. A kidney was $100-$125; a brain $150-$999 (30 % discount if fragmented); ears and eyes $50-$75. The full list is online and on page 2 herein.

SALE! Aborted Baby Parts

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, July 31, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

“Undercover video shows Planned Parenthood official discussing fetal organs used for research,” was a headline July 14th. The video, done with “police-quality undercover cameras,” records a meeting between two pro-life activists posing as biotech firm employees and Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical research. Over lunch in a Los Angeles restaurant, PP’s medical research director provided “straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth” verification of PP’s harvesting of fetal organs produced by abortion.

Between sips of wine, she explained how carefully she performs an abortion to simultaneously crush the body, while protecting designated organs. She said it this way: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver … so I’m not gonna crush that part; I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

About the price of organs and tissue, she said, “You know, I would throw a number out, I would say it’s probably anywhere from $30 to $100, depending on the facility and what’s involved. It just has to do with space issues, are you sending someone there that’s going to do everything … is there shipping involved? Is someone going to be there to pick it up?” Continue reading

Military Honor Guards AWOL from Churches

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, July 24, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Being AWOL, meaning “absent without leave,” is a crime in the U.S. Armed Services. It’s punishable under Article 86 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and means not being where you are supposed to be, at the time you are supposed to be there. Any military person one minute late for work can be considered AWOL. A military person AWOL for 30 days is a Deserter.

So, when I say military honor guards are AWOL from churches, I don’t mean they ran away from participating in July 4th celebrations. And I don’t mean it’s a crime to skip church. If it were, jails would be full of deserters from church services. BUT, IF active military honor guards HAD participated in church services this year, those servicemen would have violated current federal regulations that are based on the false notion that the Constitution demands separation of church and state.

This about-face restricting military personnel from religious services is “forward, march” for military participation in gay pride events. On June 13, 2015, U.S. military honor guards marched in the Washington, D.C. gay pride parade; in June 2014, a U.S. Armed Forces color guard marched alongside rainbow flags, as Dykes on Bikes led the Capital Gay Pride parade in D.C.; on two separate days in 2013, a military color guard marched in Defense Department gay pride events on Pentagon grounds.

Marijuana Grow-Legislation for 2016

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, July 17, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

It was significant when a member of the marijuana study committee commented last fall that growing marijuana in Georgia is the core of their plan. Unfortunately, she was right! The law that passed this year allowing marijuana card holders to possess marijuana and undergo treatment was only the first step. Step two is well under way.

The new Georgia Commission on Medical Cannabis met June 16th to start work on legislation to authorize the cultivation of marijuana in Georgia. That meeting date coincided with the Health Department’s launch of a Low THC Oil Registry for patients who will qualify for cards authorizing marijuana treatment.

So far, eight medical conditions have been approved for the new treatment, but patients must be (a) under current care of a doctor, (b) who will recommend them for the program (some doctors will not), (c) must qualify for the registry, and (d) will pay $25 for a two-year card authorizing them to possess 20 ounces of cannabis oil.

After announcing and describing the registry, Public Health Department Commissioner Brenda Fitzgerald explained that every county in Georgia has a registrar and 18 public health clinics across the state will issue the cards, which should be available 15 days after registration. Clinics were chosen in 18 specific locations, so travel time would be no more than two hours from anywhere in the state. Continue reading
