Aborted organs harvested, sold: PP exec wants Lamborghini

July 22, 2015

Last week we posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities,” which included a video exposing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services and Obama administration advisor. She was seen enjoying her lunch and sipping wine while callously discussing the harvesting and sale of second trimester aborted baby body parts. Nucatola brazenly admits to using partial-birth abortions to get “intact parts” which increases the amount per human baby organ —- coolly describing the barbaric process she engages in to procure specific organs for buyers. 

Then just when you thought you’d seen it all, it gets worse. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has now released a second video. This one shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, also casually sipping her beverage, flippantly haggling over payments for “intact fetal specimens” and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to ensure intact body parts — brains, hearts, lungs and livers  — which are more marketable.

By the conclusion of the meeting, Gatter, a Harvard-educated medical doctor, suggests $100 per “specimen” is not enough and concludes, “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

Gatter appears to be aware this violates laws governing tissue collection, but disregards them: “To me, that’s kind of a specious little argument,” she says.

Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection. (42 U.S. Code § 289g-2)

In 2014, Mary Gatter was honored with a “Women Mean Business” award by Democrat California State Sen. Carol Liu at a swank luncheon at the Pasadena Hilton. The honorees were chosen for having exceptional abilities that have contributed to the economic vitality, diversity, and — ironically — “the quality of life” of the 25th state Senate District.

Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities

July 16, 2015

Planned Parenthood’s roots deeply embedded in Arizona

Many of us have seen the macabre video showing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services enjoying her lunch and sipping wine while nonchalantly discussing the harvesting of aborted baby body “parts.”  Hearts, lungs and livers, also called “specimens” command a good price. “Lower extremities” are in demand, as well, she says.

In the video, released by The Center for Medical Progress, Nucatola is seen at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. Nucatola callously describes the process she engages in to procure intact body parts for buyers. 

To carry on this grisly legacy, she is involved in the training of new abortionists at Planned Parenthood and also performs abortions herself at a Los Angeles area clinic up until 24 weeks —- on 6-month pre-born human babies.

A separate clip shows Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards praising Nucatola’s work to facilitate connections for fetal tissue collection. “Oh good,” Richards says when told about Nucatola’s support for fetal tissue collection at Planned Parenthood, “Great. She’s amazing.”

LifeNews reports that Richards, who took time off from her post to campaign for Barack Obama’s reelection, makes over $500,000 a year. A onetime deputy chief of staff to Nancy Pelosi, Richards is the daughter of former Texas governor Ann Richards. In 1996, Cecile Richards founded the Texas Freedom Network, an organization specifically formed to oppose the “Christian Right.” 

There are also even more  noteworthy Arizona connections to Planned Parenthood. Gloria Feldt, the former CEO and president of the nation’s largest abortion mechanism, interviewed by Connie Chung in the video, began her career in the death industry heading the Central and Northern Arizona office. She and her husband, Alex Barbanell, live part-time in Scottsdale. And you might be surprised to know who started Planned Parenthood in our state. None other than Peggy Goldwater, Barry’s wife of 51 years. It was also a cause near and dear to Barry’s heart. The group’s most prestigious award is named in honor of the not-so-conservative, conservative icon’s wife.

Something to think about…while you’re still able

May 24, 2015

The culture of death is alive and well at the Netherlands’ Life End Clinic —- aided by a judicial order that a dementia patient be euthanized by lethal injection in accordance with her family’s wishes.

But it’s not just the judiciary that views less than perfect life with such blatant disregard.

A majority —- 52 percent —- of Dutch doctors who perform euthanasia say they would euthanize dementia patients.

Not to miss a trick, the facility thoughtfully includes a mobile service for those who prefer the patient die at home.

According to the Ministry of Justice Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide (Review Procedures) Act in Practice, Question 14:

“A doctor’s main duty is indeed to preserve life. In the case of euthanasia a doctor’s duties conflict: on the one hand, doctors have a duty to do all they can to keep the patient alive. On the other hand, they have a duty to relieve the patient’s suffering.”

Boy Scouts victims of homosexual agenda

May 23, 2015

 Bizarro world of gay activism incrementally pushes agenda, sets standards

Homosexuality, which until 1973 was defined as deviant behavior by the American Psychiatric Association, has —- 42 years later —- become “gay” and trendy. Celebrities stumble over themselves to be the latest to declare their inclinations for members of the same sex. We are treated to countless characters in movies, on stage, coming into our homes via comedy programming and even the cartoons children watch.  Who doesn’t know that 65-year-old Bruce Jenner, a three times married father of six and stepfather of four is “transitioning into womanhood?” We are told this is worthy of celebration.

How do the Boy Scouts of America fit into this scenario? Start with their oath:

“On my honor, I will do my best: To do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law. To help other people at all times. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

The Scout Law states: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Founded in 1909, scouting taught boys various survival skills, patriotism and morality. They earned merit badges for completing projects. Many city kids went camping for the first time in their lives. Public schools were happy to sponsor troops. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge commended the three fundamentals of scouting: reverence for nature, for the law and for God.

Fast forward: Since the 1990’s, Scouting has been at the center of a firestorm. Homosexual activists and their surrogates have instituted several high-profile lawsuits, citing the BSA’s core belief that homosexuals cannot serve as scout leaders since that violates the traditional moral values defined in the Scout Oath and Law.

As an example, the ACLU of San Diego claimed that the organization’s practice was discriminatory and should make them ineligible for the use of public funds or public lands.

In 2005, the BSA removed the charters of thousands of scouting units from public schools after the ACLU threatened to sue taxpayer-funded institutions that charter the troops.

The city of Philadelphia, citing the Scout’s “anti-gay policies” pressured the Cradle of Liberty Council Boy Scouts of America to vacate the building the BSA built on city property in the simpler times of 1928 and has used rent-free for decades. In 2013, the city bought the building from the Scouts. At the time, more than 17,000 boys were served by the Council in Philadelphia and Montgomery and Delaware Counties.

Gay rights activists in dozens of cities persuaded United Way to stop supporting the Scouts, though UW distributed nearly $2 million to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and no voices were raised in protest.

Now we learn that Robert Gates, former Secretary of Defense and President of Boy Scouts of America, has called for an end to the group’s ban on homosexual troop leaders. Gates, a former Eagle Scout (the highest scouting rank), declares, “We cannot ignore the social, political and judicial changes taking place in our country. We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be. The status quo….cannot be maintained.” 

A righteous organization providing guidance to countless boys, many from fatherless homes, becomes the villain in this topsy-turvy world of sexual politics.

The kids lose.


So who is Marco Rubio?

April 14, 2015

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is the latest announced 2016 Republican presidential candidate. At 43, he brings youthful vigor and promises of a “new American Century.”  What he is telling us is he is not a retread Bush or Clinton. He declares, “It begins now.”

There’s much to agree with as he makes his case. He urges a strong stance against a nuclear deal with Iran. Rubio wisely wants to bolster our national defense. He says he has a plan to eliminate the $18 Trillion national debt. Who can argue with his desire to restore the American Dream? Like most conservatives, he’s pro-life and a Second Amendment supporter. He even promises to cut taxes. These are all worthy goals. The trick is how to implement them.

A bit of background: Rubio’s parents immigrated from Cuba in 1956 and are naturalized U.S. citizens. He was born in Miami, Florida. His wife’s parents are from Columbia. In his religious life, he’s been all over the map. He speaks of his Catholic faith although he also attends a Southern Baptist church. As a child, he was baptized a Mormon and was active in the LDS faith through his early adolescence.

But it’s his divergent and facile views on illegal immigration, the DREAM Act, guest worker program and even Arizona’s SB 1070 that tell a convoluted story. Although he says he doesn’t support amnesty, he repeatedly falls back on the old saw, that “our immigration system is broken.” He also calls it “antiquated” and in need of “modernization.”

.In April 2012, Juan Williams interviewed Marco Rubio on these issues. The following year Rubio eagerly signed on with senate amnesty supporters —- Arizona’s duplicitous John McCain, Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham (SC) as part of the “bipartisan” Gang of 8. For many conservatives, that blunderous association was a defining moment. Also onboard were leftist Democrat Senators Dick Durbin (Illinois), Chuck Schumer (NY), Robert Menendez (NJ), and Michael Bennet (Colo).

With presidential aspirations front and center, Rubio has since tried to reverse his commitment to the 2013 “comprehensive immigration reform bill” that contained a pathway to citizenship for illegals. The bill passed the Senate but failed in the GOP-controlled House, where the politicians then opted for a “piecemeal” approach, thinking we don‘t know incrementalism when it looks us in the eye. 

Americans are hungry for honesty. We haven’t seen it in six years. This is the time to closely examine the candidates as they announce. America’s future is at stake. The question to ask is, “Can Rubio be trusted?”


MLK Day and Roe v. Wade: irrevocably intertwined

January 19, 2015

Our nation observes Martin Luther King Day today with local and national events and a federal holiday marking the civil rights leader’s birthday. Many also prepare to mark the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion just days later on Jan. 22. We mention the two in tandem since it’s important to remember the terrible toll abortion has had on black America —- as the leading cause of death.

The statistics on abortions among black women are staggering. Even though African-Americans comprise 12.6 percent of the U.S. population, more than one of every three abortions in the United States is performed on a black woman, accounting for nearly 35 percent. According to “Silent No More: A Major Crisis in the African-American Community,” by Rev. John J. Raphael, SSJ of Howard University in Washington, DC, of an estimated 4,000 abortions performed each day 1,452 black babies are killed daily in abortion mills. 

Overall, baby killing is a lucrative industry. Planned Parenthood’s net revenue totaled $1.21 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, with about 45% of that revenue —- $540.6 million —- provided by taxpayer-funded government health service grants. 

This video* is not new, but it is illustrative of the racist Margaret Sanger, who called those she considered inferior, “human weeds.”  Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, targeted poor European immigrants and blacks, placing “birth control” facilities in their inner-city neighborhoods, in an effort to control their numbers.

The devastating impact the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade has had on our nation is felt in every community across America.  But today of all days, honoring the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr., it is crucial that we acknowledge the tragic impact of abortion on the community he devoted his life to elevating.

ACLUers condone infanticide and prefer war on Christians to war on terrorists

This revealing interview session, conducted by Fox News’ Jesse Watters, is interspersed with much needed comic relief clips. It took place at the recent ACLU convention in Princeton, New Jersey.

Notice that one of the interviewees is a University of Chicago law professor. That’s the same school where Barack Obama allegedly was a  constitutional law professor.
