EL PASO, Texas, July 1, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In 1937, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger personally visited her gleaming new Planned Parenthood offices in El Paso, Texas. This past June 30, however, American Life League joined local pro-life activists in celebration of a major victory as all seven of the Planned Parenthood of El Paso facilities permanently close their doors.
The El Paso Planned Parenthoo group announced at a press conference Friday that it would shut down after 72 years of operation due to financial concerns, citing a drop in donations and government funds.
"Today, it is with deep heartfelt regret that I have to announce that Planned Parenthood Center of El Paso will close all of its care centers as of June 30, 2009," Analinda Moreno, the El Paso group's interim CEO, told the press.
Rita Diller, director of American Life League's STOP Planned Parenthood project, said they expect "many more closures in the days to come, as people become aware of Planned Parenthood's sex-crazed birth control and abortion business."
"What happened to Planned Parenthood of El Paso is part of a larger trend," Diller said. "One by one, with hard work and prayer, these facilities are closing down, no matter how entrenched Planned Parenthood may seem to be in a particular community."

Infanticide Exposed: Planned Parenthood's Secret Endorsement
YouTube is yet again boycotting pro-life videos, according to Students for Life.
Executive director of Students for Life of America (SFLA) Kristan Hawkins videotaped a meeting with personnel at a Freehold, New Jersey, Planned Parenthood organization that is federally funded under Title X. In an undercover video, one staff member admitted that some aborted babies are born alive and then permitted to die, which violates federal law. SFLA then posted the footage on YouTube. Hawkins adds details to the story.
"YouTube banned our video. We put up two versions of the video and they banned both," she explains. "So we have put it up with Eyeblast, so it's Eyeblast.tv. If you go to our website at StudentsForLife.org, you can see it there."
YouTube told Hawkins it dropped the videos because of inappropriate content. "If you go to YouTube and look up what inappropriate content is, it's something that has nudity, graphic sexual references, violence, or hate speech -- nothing which is included in our video," she points out.
Hawkins believes YouTube's actions represent nothing short of censorship. "YouTube's bias is clearly visible with these actions. YouTube is no friend to pro-lifers," she contends. "If Planned Parenthood isn't doing anything wrong and illegal, then why are they and their allies aggressively hiding videos from the public that show their staffers explaining their medical procedures to patients, the women they claim to care about?"

Missouri Abortionists Attempt To Keep Clinics Unsafe
September 12th, 2007
Kansas City, MO – Missouri abortionists argued during a day-long hearing in Federal Court on Monday, that they should be allowed to maintain unsafe conditions at their abortion offices.
Missouri enacted legislation earlier this year that would require abortion clinics to meet minimum safety standards. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri and a Missouri abortionist are challenging the law, claiming that it would be too costly to renovate their facilities in order to comply with the new safety standards, forcing all but one Missouri abortion mill to close.
Abortionist Allen Palmer brought in an architect who told the court that it would take $1.1 million to bring Palmer’s abortion facility up to the new codes.
“One could build a palatial mansion in Missouri for $1.1 million,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “If Palmer’s mill is that big of a dump that it would require that much money to meet minimum safety standards, he shouldn’t be operating.”
“These abortionists want to maintain unsafe conditions in order to save money,” said Newman. “That really tells you where their priorities are, and it is not with the health and safety of women. Abortionists want special treatment and exemption from the same laws that every other medical professional must follow. It is because they know if they have to be accountable, they would not be able to continue their shady practices or maintain their profit margins.”
Newman knows first hand what unregulated abortion clinics look like. Last year, Operation Rescue bought and closed Central Women’s Services in Wichita, Kansas, an abortion mill that had never been inspected in its 23-year existence. They discovered appallingly filthy and unsafe conditions, which were documented on video.
“We don’t support clinic regulations as an end of the matter, but if laws like this can close these horrific abortion mills, we are all for them,” said Newman. “Every human life has value and worth, and while we work toward the goal of total abolition, we recognize that the babies who are scheduled to die today need every protection they can get.”
U.S. District Judge Ortrie Smith is scheduled to issue a ruling on the standards law by September 24. In the meantime, a temporary injunction is blocking the law from being enforced.
Another Planned Parenthood clinic will close!
We are happy to report that another Planned Parenthood facility is closing, this time in the state of Michigan. The clinic located in Albion, MI is closing in August due to a lack of customers. Planned Parenthood just couldn't make enough money off of the young people in Southern Michigan to keep it open!
This particular Planned Parenthood clinic is located in a predominantly black and minority community. Planned Parenthood has been known to move into these types of neighborhoods and target African-American women. We constantly hear the numerous reports on Planned Parenthood's racist agenda. Fortunately, in the case of Albion targeting minority communities has worked against Planned Parenthood, and its attempt to murder preborn babies and ruin people's lives has failed.( LINK )
Parenthood Wants Abortions
"Unsafe, Legal and Frequent"
by Alan Sears
September 10, 2007
LifeNews.com Note: Alan Sears is a former federal prosecutor who worked in the Reagan administration. He is now the president and CEO of the Alliance Defense Fund, a pro-life law firm.
Planned Parenthood and its cheerleaders have long claimed they want abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” Let’s examine the recent evidence. Do they promote things that make abortion “safe, legal, and rare” or do they actually support dangerous practices, ignore legal restrictions, and make decisions likely to increase the rate of abortion?
For years, Planned Parenthood aficionados terrified young women with horrific tales of coat hangers, merciless profiteers, and “back-alley abortions.” They demanded limitless, universal access to abortion, proclaiming that this quick-and-easy way to eliminate one's unwanted offspring was essential for the health and safety of women.
So what gives? This summer the Missouri Legislature – an entity charged with acting in the interest of its citizens – passed Senate Bill 370 to protect women's health and safety. The bill was signed into law by Gov. Matt Blunt.
You'd think Planned Parenthood – which says it wants abortion to be “safe” for women – would applaud the new law. Its provisions require abortion clinics to be held to the same kinds of standards for cleanliness and safety required of other surgical facilities, so that a woman suffering the gruesome misery of an abortion at least has the same standard of care as she would for a tonsillectomy.
The legislature after hearing a LOT of testimony understood that abortion of any kind, but especially one in the latter stages of pregnancy, can be an intrusive, even dangerous “procedure”—one that by its very nature has risks associated with it (not to mention what’s intended for the unborn child). And Planned Parenthood knows that the surprise complications of even the most “simple” abortions can quickly endanger the health, even the life, of the mother.
But rather than applauding and supporting this effort to increase health protection for their clients, Planned Parenthood asked a federal judge to strike down the law--to overturn the health and safety requirements--apparently because more safety means lower profits for abortionists.
Planned Parenthood also asserts that since some of their clinics mostly issue the abortion-performing drug mifepristone, they don't need to follow the law either. In making this argument, they ignore FDA evidence that such chemical abortions may require surgical intervention – sometimes on an emergency basis – and for one out of every 12 women in clinical trials.
A 2005 report showed 607 “adverse events” related to the abortion drug over a four-year period, including 237 cases of hemorrhage, 68 which required transfusions, and 42 characterized as life-threatening.
Planned Parenthood complains that enhanced health and safety would require some clinics to close while being retrofitted to standard.
(Can you imagine a restaurant chain refusing to take time out from serving food to correct flagrant health code violations? Or a manufacturer refusing to retrofit its plants to install mandated equipment in their automobiles because doing so is too expensive?)
And while bemoaning its potential loss in profits, Planned Parenthood is silent about its national gross income of nearly $900 million during 2005-2006, which yielded a tidy $63 million profit. They also fail to mention the $3.9 billion in taxpayer money they have received since 1987. Their spokesperson estimated that upgrading a heavily used surgical abortion clinic in Columbia, Missouri, to the 2007 standards would only cost $600,000.
While Planned Parenthood publicly talks about safety, it privately rolls the dice with women's lives.

Planned Parenthood Sued over Botched Abortion
Planned Parenthood Secretly Buys Land for New Offices
By Randy Hall
CNSNews.com Staff Writer/Editor
August 24, 2007
(CNSNews.com) - The nation's biggest abortion provider is seeking to avoid opposition when buying property or building new facilities through secrecy, or what one pro-life leader called "a series of cover-ups" in such places as Denver, Colo., Portland, Ore., and Aurora, Ill.
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) - a division of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America - announced this week it will break ground in November on a $4.2 million headquarters and clinic on northwest Denver property it bought secretly last year.
Planned Parenthood, which receives $305.3 million in tax dollars a year, is the largest abortion chain in the United States and has killed more than 3 million children by abortion, according to the American Life League.
PPRM Senior Vice President Leslie Durgin told the Denver Post that the organization initially intended to complete the entire project in secrecy to avoid the kind of protests and delays Planned Parenthood building projects have encountered elsewhere.
But when a reporter discovered that the group had bought an entire city block under a different name, the organization acknowledged that ground would be broken for its new 50,000-square-foot, three-story center in November and that the facility was slated to begin operation in August 2008.
PPRM moved to its current Denver location, a former bank, in 1973, Durgin said. Twenty-three years later, it added a second location for administrative offices.
"We really wanted to build a state-of-the-art health-care facility and to consolidate our programs and services. To do that in the current facilities was not realistic," she said, adding that the new structure would be the first new clinic the 90-year-old organization has built in the Denver area.
Leslie Hanks, vice president of Colorado Right to Life, told Cybercast News Service on Thursday that her organization has begun making plans to launch protests and initiate boycotts when construction on the new structure begins.
"We have a strong presence at their current 'death camp,' where we save about 100 babies a year," she said. "Every day they kill, protesters are there, and we don't intend to go away anytime soon."
Hanks said she suspected PPRM might be looking to move to another location since "they've really let that facility go down the tubes. It's all sprayed with graffiti, and they haven't tried to clean it up or anything."
Over the next few months, pro-life forces "intend to try to get more 'troops' and step up our pressure and efforts to expose the lies Planned Parenthood tells," Hanks added, "such as denying that they target minorities."
"Every day in this country, 1,600 black babies die at the hands of abortionists, and they tend to put their centers right in the heart of minority neighborhoods," Hanks said. "And this new facility is no exception," because it's to be built in an area with more minority residents than the current structures.
"Let's face it," she added, Planned Parenthood is "in the business to kill babies for profit."
However, Durgin responded that African-American women received only 7 percent of the abortions it provided in 2006, compared with 55.5 percent for white women, and PPRM served 125,000 people in five states last year. Of those, 8,800 African-American women received abortions.
As Cybercast News Service previously reported, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America last year experienced a drop in donations and the first fall in income from clinics in its history.
Jim Sedlak, executive director of Stop Planned Parenthood (STOPP) International, said he believes those factors have led the PPFA and its affiliates to engage in what he called "a series of cover-ups" across the country.
"This is now the third major facility that they've tried to build secretly," Sedlak told Cybercast News Service on Thursday. Besides Denver, "one was in Portland, Ore., where they tried to go through a front organization to buy the land from the city and build" until the ruse was discovered.
And in Aurora, Ill., a 22,000-square-foot structure was built under a fake name, he said.
"The sign out front said 'Gemini Health Systems,'" Sedlak said. "It was only about a month ago that one of the workers got suspicious when he saw they were installing bullet-proof glass. He started raising questions, which got to local reporters, and the reporters found out that it's a Planned Parenthood facility" set to open Sept. 18.
"Planned Parenthood has such a bad name that they can't even tell people when they're planning to build a building," he said. "They have to sneak into a community."
As a result, STOPP is warning people across the nation that "if you have a major new health facility in your area at all, suspect it may be Planned Parenthood and go find out about it," said Sedlak.
Back in Denver, the PPRM work site will be fenced, and protesters will not be allowed inside the boundaries of private property, Durgin said. "We don't expect to have a police presence on a daily basis unless we need it," she said, "in which case we'll call for it, and I have been assured we will get it."
Sedlak responded that the police in Denver have been occupied, though not quite in the way Durgin thought they would be.
"There have been two arrests out there, but they were local people who were harassing the protestors," he said.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD ANNUAL REPORT SHOWS THAT IT RECEIVED $305,300,000 IN TAX MONEY LAST YEAR – A 12% INCREASE!
America’s deadliest baby-killer gets 34% of its budget from you! Please help us get this urgent news to as many pro-lifers as possible by forwarding it to your email list.
Last week, Planned Parenthood quietly issued its latest annual report http://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/PPFA/Annual_report.pdf. As always, the report was packed with lies about its “mission” to provide “quality health care” to women.
The one big truth in the 20-page report is that it got a total of $305,300,000 in free tax-funding last year. That’s a whopping 11.95% increase over the $272,700,000 it got the year before.
Let’s put that $305,300,000 in two equally important perspectives:
Perspective #1: Last year, Planned Parenthood surgically aborted over 264,943 preborn babies. As a ratio to the funds it gets on the government dole, that’s $1,152.32 for each baby torn apart in the womb!
Perspective #2: During the same year, the top five national pro-life organizations continued to receive exactly ZERO dollars in government funding. In the first six months of 2007, our own contributions are $160,000 behind the same point last year. And we’re the number one enemy of Planned Parenthood!
AN OVERVIEW OF THE REPORT’S MOST OUTRAGEOUS HEADLINES
I urge you and every pro-lifer to visit http://www.all.org and read our summary of Planned Parenthood’s annual report.
Until then, here are the key points every pro-lifer should know:
But Planned Parenthood wants even more of your taxes. As I write this, Planned Parenthood is fighting for increased Medi-Cal reimbursement rates so it can get more taxpayer money from every customer.
IT’S TIME TO PUT A STOP TO THIS
It’s clear that politicians aren’t going to cut off Planned Parenthood’s funding unless they feel the outrage from average American citizens like you and me. Here’s what you can do starting today:
1)REGISTER your complaint now and often. We have to keep up the drumbeat, until elected officials stop this immoral use of our taxes.
2)If you haven’t already, SIGN our online petition – www.StopPlannedParenthoodTaxFunding.com – and urge your friends and family to do the same!
3)Since Planned Parenthood’s tax funding increased by 12%, please forward this message to at least 12 of your friends so that together we can put an end to Planned Parenthood’s tax funding.
It’s long past time that we all said NO! to Planned Parenthood.
Sincerely yours in the Lord Who IS Life,
Judie Brown, President

Americans must demand an end to the abortion organization's deadly business
WASHINGTON, May 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion chain, continues to end the lives of preborn children at an alarming rate," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. "With the release of the organization's latest 'service' numbers, we now know that in 2005, Planned Parenthood killed 264,943 preborn children through surgical and medical abortions. This means the abortion giant kills 5,095 babies in the womb every week in this country." The newest numbers show that since the organization began performing abortions in 1970, Planned Parenthood has tragically snuffed out the lives of 4,068,749 children through abortion. "To put these numbers in perspective, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor killed 2,403 innocent people and the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 claimed 2,985 victims," said Sedlak. "This week alone, Planned Parenthood will kill more innocent human beings than were killed at Pearl Harbor or on September 11." Most troubling about Planned Parenthood's operations is that American taxpayers are forced to underwrite its radical agenda. "Americans should demand that Planned Parenthood cease receiving tax funding at once," said Sedlak. "The government currently gives over $270 million in taxpayer money to the organization each year. We should not be forced to contribute to Planned Parenthood's attack on the preborn. "Enough is enough," said Sedlak. "Planned Parenthood is a dangerous organization that makes millions of dollars by selling sex to kids and killing babies through abortion. It is time to bring this reign of terror to an end."

Los Angeles, CA (LifeNews.com) -- More details are emerging in a case where a counselor at the UCLA student health center advised a pregnant student to have an abortion. The woman in the case, a pro-life student posing as a pregnant teenager, says Planned Parenthood attempted to advise her to disguise statutory rape. In an undercover investigative story for a student-run newspaper, UCLA student Lila Rose posed as a pregnant 15 year-old and entered a Santa Monica Planned Parenthood.
She told officials there that a 23 year old man had impregnated her and her article in The Advocate newspaper says PP staff assured Rose that if she said she was 16 or older, they wouldn't have to report the rape.
The abortion facility staff encouraged her to "figure out a birth-date that works," to obtain the abortion and avoid getting the man in trouble with the police.
"California's mandatory reporting laws for statutory rape are supposed to protect pregnant minors," Rose told LifeNews.com in a statement Thursday.
"Underage girls are being targeted by predators, and Planned Parenthood is busy covering up the evidence. How many other rapes has this one clinic covered up?" she asked.
The story appears in the second issue of the newspaper and the first one had details about the UCLA case.
In that situation, the counselor told Rose, who again claimed to be pregnant, that the college has no resources available for students keeping their babies. The counselor also encouraged the student to get the state health system to pay for the abortion.
The advice came from Ann Brooks, nurse practitioner and counselor at the UCLA Health Center.
Rose said the counseling was entirely aimed at encouraging an abortion -- thinking that was the only option to help her stay in school. The student said Brooks also advised her to use Medi-Cal to fund her abortion with taxpayer funds.
"I have a place I can send you where they will get you signed up for Medi-Cal coverage and they just don't ask," the counselor reportedly said.
Brooks allegedly said Rose should have an abortion because of a lack of support for pregnancies on campus and the discomforts of pregnancy.
"Most of the students I talk to terminate their pregnancies," Brooks said, describing the unborn child as "a collection of cells."
She added that Rose could expect "physical difficulties" during pregnancy and the "embarrassment of your classmates" as a pregnant student living in the school dorms.
Brooks said "UCLA doesn't support people who are pregnant and make things easier for them necessarily."
In comments to LifeNews.com on Thursday, Rose said UCLA has use articles in the Daily Bruin, the official campus newspaper, "as a front to defend its image as an unbiased, plentiful pregnancy care resource."
"When women are given politically charged opinions from their counselor, and told that abortion at UCLA is the most feasible option for them, there aren't many 'choices' open for women. The administration is choosing for women, putting them in a situation where their only choice is to abort," said Rose.
Rose hopes that the second issue of The Advocate will open eyes to the need for better pregnancy counseling and pregnancy resource awareness and put pressure on the school to correct these deficiencies.

Dear Champion of the Lord and the Preborn,
The Lord richly bless you! Pam Smallwood, Director of our local Planned Parenthood, characterized Margaret Sanger, their "illustrious founder," as "...a courageous woman who was passionate about ensuring all people have access to quality healthcare - especially people with limited means." Let's see if this squares with the ideology, philosophy, and stated purposes that came from this "wolf in sheep's clothing" own mouth. As you read her quotes, prayerfully this ignorance, sustained by denial, that has crippled our nation's response to the horror this one woman unleashed upon the world will end soon. It is past time that America wakes up and end this nightmare.
This battle with Planned Parenthood is a clash between two worldviews. One view holds that life is sacred. Man is made in the image of God and therefore has inherent worth and dignity. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, died and rose again from the dead for lost humanity. Human beings, therefore, have tremendous inherent value as a creature in the mind and plan of Almighty God. Jesus stated, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul (Matthew 16:26)? According to Jesus, all the accumulative wealth in the entire world pales in value compared to just one human soul.
The ink of Planned Parenthood has cheapened this godly value to the point of reducing babies in the womb to rubbish that is discarded with the evening trash. Their pagan philosophy is known as "quality of life." According to this view, human life is based upon its utilitarian considerations. Man has only value if they are wanted, productive, and do not add pain or require sacrifice on the rest of mankind to support their lives. Their usefulness is the key to their existence. (Remember the slogan of Nazi Germany, "work makes you free") God forbid, if men are deemed not useful to other human beings or perhaps lose their usefulness along the way, they are considered a dead weight to society and should be eliminated. As you read Margaret Sanger's quotes, you will see this deadly, selfish, greedy, and lustful view proudly presented by this queen of death.
Ideas have consequences and belief systems will lead mankind somewhere. One view leads to love as defined by Jesus Christ, which is, laying our lives down to save others. It is a love that gives at the expense of self. It inspires the strong to help the weak. While the other view is rooted in lust, which takes at the expense of others to satisfy self. It inspires the strong to victimize the weak and destroy them if they get in the way of our selfish, lustful pursuits.
Planned Parenthood's promotes to mankind a fantasy world that promises the wages of sin is not death. You can fornicate, commit adultery, engage in homosexual lust, and be promiscuous to your heart's content. If along the way, however, you experience an undesirable consequence, such as, an unwanted pregnancy, STDs, or evidence of child molestation, be sure to know that Planned Parenthood will be there to remove those consequences through peddling birth control, abortion, sterilization, and cover up the child predators that abuse underage girls. Planned Parenthood "frees" man to continue in their sexually immoral and criminal behavior. No wonder unregenerate man loves and defends Planned Parenthood. They are enablers that bring out the worst in our fallen nature under the facade of "healthcare."
Margaret Sanger stated, "[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children..." She desired a world where mankind can experience all the pleasures of sex with no responsibility. This is the utopian dream that has plunged America and the world into the hellish nightmare. Planned Parenthood continues this dark, demonic, philosophy today. Behind the veneer of respectability, however, lurks a monster that devours.

Meet Margaret Sanger
Founder of Planned Parenthood
Margaret Sanger, the alcoholic and Demerol addict, who spawned the International Planned Parenthood Federation, was a proponent of forced eugenics, segregation, abortion, Here are some of her infamous quotes.
"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood
"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race."
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…"
"Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock."
"Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
"Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives."
"The unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' [is] the greatest present menace to civilization… the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective."
"The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics."
"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… a dead weight of human waste… an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."
"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."
"The procreation of [the diseased, the feeble-minded and paupers] should be stopped."
"The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order..."
"[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children..."
"[Mandatory] sterilization for [the insane and feeble-minded] is the answer."
"Give dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization."
Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, proposed the American Baby Code that states, "No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child… without a permit for parenthood".
Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, proposed the Population Congress with the aim, "...to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization."
"As we celebrate the 100th birthday of Margaret Sanger, our outrageous and our courageous leader, we will probably find a number of areas in which we may find more about Margaret Sanger than we thought we wanted to know..." -Faye Wattleton, Past-president of Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood sex education material
welcomed by educators, rejected by prisons
WASHINGTON, D.C.—“The directors of our prisons obviously have more common sense than some educators of our children,” said American Life League vice president Jim Sedlak. A state prison in Washington refused to deliver a recent American Life League mailing, which referenced a Planned Parenthood endorsed sex education book aimed at children ages 10 and up.
The mailing, sent as part of American Life League's ongoing educational efforts to individuals across the country, contained censored pornographic images from the children's sex education book that the vice president of education for Planned Parenthood described as “a boon for kids, their parents, and their teachers,” while calling the illustrations “delightful.”
“This was really offensive material intended by Planned Parenthood to be seen by children,” said Sedlak. “The actual material—which features pornographic drawings of naked people and various sex acts—was too obscene to send to our readers, so we altered the drawings so that the genitals were not clearly visible. Still, the message was clear.”
Sedlak said that although the material is defended by many educators and sex education experts, officials at the Department of Corrections’ Stafford Street Corrections Center in Aberdeen, Washington clearly understood the offensive nature of the Planned Parenthood endorsed material. A letter that contained this information, which was addressed to an inmate at that facility, was returned to American Life League’s offices along with a mail rejection form.
“The form stated that the material was rejected because it was considered ‘obscene or sexually explicit material as defined in policy,’” said Sedlak. “It is a sad comment that material that is rightfully considered too obscene for criminals is freely distributed to our children. We’re renewing our call for parents and all Americans to get Planned Parenthood out of our schools. If the material it promotes is not okay for convicts, it clearly is not acceptable for our children.”

De-fund Planned Parenthood And Stop Tax-Dollar Support Of Abortion
Planned Parenthood Web Site Promotes Porn to TeensBy Penny Starr
CNSNews.com Senior Staff Writer
February 26, 2008(Editor's note: Contains quoted passages that some readers may find offensive.)
Actor: ...I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don't want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids.
Planned Parenthood: Yes, absolutely.
Actor: And we don't, you know, we just think the less black kids out there the better.
Planned Parenthood: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable... This is the first time I've had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I'm excited and want to make sure I don't leave anything out.
Students at UCLA are so infuriated by the investigation that they are petitioning the university to cut all affiliation with Planned Parenthood. What few people realize is that the organization has a history of racism that has been ingrained since Planned Parenthood's earliest days, when founder Margaret Sanger advocated negative eugenics and spoke to a woman's branch of the KOKI (Margaret Sanger, An Autobiography, 1938, p. 336-367). However, as is customary for Planned Parenthood, the organization has managed for decades to cover its tracks--and the facts. That task has just been made monumentally more difficult. Abortion has taken the innocent lives of over 14 million black children--a national tragedy that has begun uniting and mobilizing African-Americans across party, state, and financial lines.
Today, FRC hosted a press conference to kick off the National Black Pro-Life Gathering in Washington, D.C. which drew pastors, parents, leaders, and activists from across America to commemorate Black History Month by calling on abortion merchants like Planned Parenthood to stop preying on their community. As these abortion clinics continue to demonstrate that blood money is not colorblind, we call on Congress to de-fund and disavow Planned Parenthood. Taxpayers should not be forced to spend over $300 million on an organization whose scruples are for sale, even to those who seek racial genocide.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Pro-life members of Congress say the federal government should stop funding Planned Parenthood through national family programs because its teen-oriented web site features pornography. Planned Parenthood's online venture TeenWire features content so graphic that some Internet filters are preventing access to it. The site is supposed to be a compendium of "medically accurate" information for teenagers on sexual issues. Though Planned Parenthood is careful to say the information is intended for people 18 years and older, the web site is clearly geared to teens. The web site's "advice columnists" tell kids viewing the web site that many people use pornography as part of sex play." A columnist tells one viewer that viewing pornography won't lead to getting bad grades in school. The web site encourages kids to play sexual games or explore bisexuality and it gives teens advice on how to avoid telling their parents about a possible abortion. Full story at LifeNews.com.
Lawsuits allege Planned Parenthood ripped off taxpayers for more than $180 million, fired whistleblower
PLANNED PARENTHOOD MUST BE PROUD
Jim Sedlak: "Every week, Planned Parenthood kills twice as many innocent human beings as died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (1 April 2008) — “Planned Parenthood has just released its latest annual report and it must be very proud,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League.“In the report,” Sedlak continued, “Planned Parenthood documents that it killed 289,750 innocent human beings in 2006. This is a 9.4 percent increase over its 2005 killing numbers. It is the highest year-to-year increase in Planned Parenthood’s abortion business since 1996 and the third highest in its history.”
“Planned Parenthood now kills 5,572 innocent human beings every week. This means that, every week, Planned Parenthood kills twice as many innocent human beings as died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
“This year’s death toll brings the total number of babies who have died at Planned Parenthood facilities to 4,358,499,” Sedlak concluded. “One out of every four abortions committed in the United States now occurs at a Planned Parenthood killing center. It is time for Americans to rise up against this organization and demand that it be shut down.”
American Life League was co-founded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

Planned Parenthood no longer receives Title X money in Nebraska
Members of Congress use special orders to call for defunding of Planned Parenthood
You are receiving this newsletter because you are one of the signers of the petition to defund Planned Parenthood (www.StopPlannedParenthoodTaxFunding.com ). The whole situation concerning the ending of taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood is heating up, and we want to keep you informed.
This is the first monthly update that American Life League will be providing you. If you do not want to receive these updates, please e-mail email@example.com and include your first and last name, and we will take you off of our recipient list.
American Life League has spent much of this year meeting with members of Congress and their staffs to educate them on Planned Parenthood and to ask for the cessation of government funding. As part of our educational package, we gave each member with whom we met a list of the petition signers in his or her state. Your signatures were very effective in illustrating the grassroots support for such an initiative. Thank you for signing!
So far, 30,000 people have signed the petition! While this is a great number, we are asking for your help to increase the number of signers. If you know of anyone who would like to sign the petition, please direct them to www.stopplannedparenthoodtaxfunding.com. If each person who has already signed could get just two more people to sign, we would be close to 100,000 signatures, and that would help us immensely in getting Congress to take notice.
You have signed the petition, but you may want to do more. Congressional schedules are always changing, but there may be a vote on Planned Parenthood funding in September. In August, members of Congress are in summer recess, and many are spending time back home in their districts. Please consider visiting, calling or writing your senators and representatives! Planned Parenthood relies on the public's apathy, and members of Congress respond to public outcry. When trying to gain legislators' attention, the more upset constituents they hear from, the more likely they are to act. If you need any information to include in your letters, please visit www.all.org/stopp/ or contact ALL's senior congressional liaison, Johanna Dasteel, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to educating members of Congress, we also are working to get individual states to stop funding Planned Parenthood. We recently received a letter from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services stating, "As of April 1, 2008, Planned Parenthood of Nebraska and Council Bluffs ceased its relationship as a Nebraska Title X affiliate of Nebraska Health and Human Services. At that time distribution of Title X funds stopped and a complete close out of any previous Title X Relationship has since occurred." Praise God!
Recently, Representative Christopher Smith of New Jersey and other pro-life House members took to the floor of the House of Representatives, in a session called special orders, and publicly called for the end of taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. You can view clips from this session here. This public outcry against Planned Parenthood at the highest levels of our government means that the message is getting through.
In this election year, we urge you to bring up the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood every time you speak to a political candidate. It makes no difference what party the politician is from or for what office he or she is a candidate. Every candidate needs to hear that the people of the United States do not want taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. If they hear it often now, they will remember it when they get in office.
The effort to defund Planned Parenthood is gaining momentum. Now is the time to increase our activities.

Basic Facts About Planned Parenthood
A press relase from Live Action Films:TUCSON, AZ, Feb. 3 – New hidden-camera footage from Tucson, AZ, implicates a third Planned Parenthood clinic in a multi-state child abuse scandal. In the video, UCLA student Lila Rose and her friend Jackie Stollar enter a Tucson Planned Parenthood clinic where Rose tells the nurse that Stollar, posing as a 15-year-old, is pregnant by her 27-year-old boyfriend. The nurse disregards the age difference and even cautions Stollar not to bring her "boyfriend" before the judicial hearing required in Arizona to waive parental consent for an abortion.This negligence is punishable under Arizona law.
"Is he not a minor?" the Planned Parenthood nurse, who identifies herself as Araceli, asks. When Rose says, "He's 27," the nurse urges the girls not to bring him to the hearing: "I wouldn't take him with me, no. I mean: don't take him."
The video is the third released in a national undercover probe called the "Mona Lisa Project." The project, conducted by the student-led California nonprofit Live Action, records on video Planned Parenthood employees as they respond to statutory rape. Rather than reporting the rape—as the law requires—Planned Parenthood clinics hide the identity of the statutory rapist and offer secret abortions.
In the past two months, the Mona Lisa Project has exposed similar cases at two Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana. In response, both clinics either fired or suspended employees, and state prosecutors launched investigations into Planned Parenthood of Indiana.
"These videos demonstrate that Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, is entrenched in an organization-wide policy of circumventing state law and concealing the sexual abuse of young girls," said Live Action's president, Lila Rose.
This is not the first time Planned Parenthood of Arizona has failed to report sexual abuse. In 2002, an Arizona judge found the abortion provider negligent for failing to report the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl by her 23-year-old foster brother, who brought her to a Phoenix-area clinic for an abortion in 1998. After Planned Parenthood kept silent about the abuse, the sexual relationship continued and led to a second abortion six months later.
While noting that today Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at an event sponsored by Planned Parenthood, Rose urges Arizona prosecutors to follow the lead of Indiana state authorities and investigate the full extent of Planned Parenthood's sexual abuse cover-up.
"Our footage gives the Arizona public and law enforcement a rare window into Planned Parenthood's careless abortion-first ideology," Rose stated. "With abortion as their first and only solution for the abused victim, Planned Parenthood assists sexual predators by violating the very Arizona state laws that protect children."
Rose adds, "Planned Parenthood is not above the law. They must cooperate with Arizona state authorities to reveal the full extent of their lawbreaking."

TWO REPORTS SHOW PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S MAIN FOCUS: ABORTION
Washington, DC (13 April 2009) – Despite a massive public relations effort to distance itself from one of its main sources of income, two new reports, including the group's annual report, show a huge increase in Planned Parenthood's abortion business.
In addition to the annual report, American Life League also released a report last month showing an increase in the number of Planned Parenthood facilities performing medical abortions.
“Planned Parenthood has increased its number of abortions to a total of 305,310 which is over 15,000 more babies than it reported to have killed in 2006,” said Marie Hahnenberg, ALL researcher. “We also learned from our 2008 Report on Planned Parenthood facilities that Planned Parenthood is focusing more on killing preborn babies through medical abortions.”
In the last two years, Planned Parenthood has increased its number of facilities offering medical abortions by 61. Medical abortions involve an extremely dangerous cocktail of drugs. Some common drugs used for medical abortions are Mifepristone (RU-486) and Methotrexate.
The first drug, which kills the preborn baby, is administered at a Planned Parenthood facility. Contrary to Food and Drug Administration's recommended regulations, the second drug the mother often takes at home – potentially alone – which induces labor. The mother gives birth to her dead baby at home.
Planned Parenthood’s 2007-2008 Annual Report shows that it received a total of $349.6 million from U.S. tax dollars.
“This is an atrocity and Planned Parenthood must be stopped,” Hahnenberg said. “Any organization that performs 24% of all abortions in the United States and received $1.04 billion in total revenue certainly does not need any of our hard working dollars going into its hands, especially since it made $85 million in profit.”
Hahnenberg urges everyone to sign the petition to defund Planned Parenthood at www.stopplannedparenthoodtaxfunding.com and to let legislators know to STOP all government funding from going to Planned Parenthood.

FEDERAL CHILDREN'S HEALTH PROGRAM PARTNERS WITH ABORTION CHAIN
Washington, D.C. (29 July 2008) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Women, Infants and Children program, designed to provide needy moms and young children with nutritious foods and health care referrals, is referring those same moms and kids to Planned Parenthood.
"It is absolutely outrageous that the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program that WIC sponsors would refer mothers to the nation's largest abortion chain for health care," Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League said. "Planned Parenthood kills more children than any other single organization in the country. How can a program for children associate with it?"
The WIC Learning Online Web site links to Planned Parenthood Federation of America as a "participant referral." Planned Parenthood received over $336 million in taxpayer funding in 2007 alone, with an overall profit of $115 million.
Sedlak says this Planned Parenthood partnership with a program designed for children is just one of the ways in which the government subsidizes Planned Parenthood's push to sexualize kids.
"The American taxpayer is simply fed up with Planned Parenthood feeding at the trough of government largesse," Sedlak said. "It is time we ended all association between government organizations and Planned Parenthood – a billion-dollar giant in the sex industry."
