League Celebrates Ouster of Abortion Champ Kathleen Sebelius at HHS

Posted by Eric Scheidler (April 11, 2014 at 4:13 pm)
Kathleen Sebelius

Disgraced, departing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius

The Pro-Life Action League is heartened to hear that Kathleen Sebelius is resigning as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a post she has held since the early days of the Obama administration.

As HHS head, Sebelius was responsible for implementing the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,” and came under fire from both the right and left for the program’s horribly botched launch last year.

Sebelius was responsible for enacting the notorious HHS Mandate that forces employers to provide free abortion-inducing drugs and contraceptives in their employees’ health plans. She also helped to keep health care consumers in the dark about whether their plans cover abortion, despite agreeing in a Congressional hearing that all coverage should be transparent.

911 Call Shows How Little Planned Parenthood Cares about Women’s Health

Posted by Eric Scheidler (April 10, 2014 at 6:30 am)

The recordings of a 911 call and a dispatcher’s ambulance call reveal Planned Parenthood’s diligence—but only when it comes to protecting their business from public scrutiny.

On Saturday, January 18, 2014, an ambulance appeared at the huge Planned Parenthood facility in Aurora, Illinois, during the Pro-Life Action League’s monthly protest there. I caught the incident on camera, as did volunteers with the Live Pro-Life youth group. The recordings were later obtained with help from the Thomas More Society through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

911 Operator Rebukes Planned Parenthood Staffer

The ambulance arrived at approximately 9:40 a.m. Shortly after 10:00 a.m., paramedics exited the main doors with a patient on a gurney and loaded it into the ambulance. They left about 10:10 a.m.

On both the 911 call and on the radio with paramedics, the dispatcher is clearly frustrated at how little information Planned Parenthood has given her about the status of their patient. The Planned Parenthood employee on the phone even seems reluctant to give the name of the business she’s calling from: [Continue reading ...]

Five Babies Recently Saved at Planned Parenthood Mega-Center in Illinois

I’m happy to report that since the beginning of this month, five babies have been saved from abortion at the huge Planned Parenthood’s mega-center in Aurora, Illinois, where the Pro-Life Action League is especially active. This is especially joyous news considering how difficult it is to speak to clients at this location, which was deliberately designed to hinder pro-life outreach.

The first came March 1 during a kickoff rally for 40 Days for Life. Sidewalk counselors Karen N. reports that a couple came out from Planned Parenthood and approached her as they were driving away. The woman nodded when Karen asked her if she was pregnant, and nodded again when she asked whether they’d changed their minds. Karen gave them information on the nearby Waterleaf pregnancy center. The man said they had to get a bite first—further indication they had had an abortion scheduled, since clients are instructed not to eat the morning before.

Three Saves the First Week of Lent

On Ash Wednesday, March 5, a car pulled out of the Planned Parenthood parking lot and pulled up beside sidewalk counselor Susan S. The passenger, a young woman, told Susan she had decided to keep her baby. Only minutes later, another car pulled up to Susan S. and counselor Randy M. and a beaming young woman told them about a previously unknown save: her daughter would soon turn one year old.

Planned Parenthood Was against Abortion Before It Was for It

Posted by John Jansen (March 4, 2014 at 3:11 pm)

If you’ve ever wondered why Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards rarely gives on-camera interviews, here’s why:

Remember, Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain. And yet their president of the past eight years can’t give coherent answers to basic questions related to the topic. Richards stops and starts so often that one might guess that this is the first interview she’s ever done.

But enough about style, and onto substance.

Does anyone actually believe that at the time Cecile Richards was pregnant with her own three children, she actually believed they weren’t alive? [Continue reading ...]

Follow the Money: Planned Parenthood’s Loss is Left-Wing Fundraiser’s Gain

Posted by John Jansen (February 21, 2014 at 9:30 am)

Planned parenthood dollar signThe Orange County Register came out with an eye-opening article recently highlighting the staggering amount of money that many third party commercial fundraisers make off telemarketing campaigns they run for nonprofits.

According to figures [PDF] from the California Attorney General, nonprofits themselves kept only 37% of the nearly $300 million raised in the state by commercial fundraisers in 2012.

The article quotes Doug White, an instructor with Columbia University’s Master of Science in Fundraising Management program, who calls these telemarketing companies “bottom-feeders.” But he doesn’t blame them: “They’re just for-profit companies doing their job. I blame the nonprofits that use them over and over and over again.”

Then the article names some names—a list that includes the nation’s largest abortion chain:

One campaign for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in New York had revenues of $2 million – but the nonprofit wound up losing $1.8 million nonetheless, for a return of minus 92.8 percent, according to data collected by the California attorney general. [Continue reading ...]

Who Is Planned Parenthood’s Newest Member? You’ll Never Guess

Posted by Joe Scheidler (February 17, 2014 at 9:00 am)

For reasons unbeknownst to me, the other day I received at our home address my official Planned Parenthood Membership Card, along with a letter [PDF] from Cecile Richards saying she can’t thank me enough for what I have done for Planned Parenthood this past year.

What I have done is picket their high-dollar fundraising events, protested their conferring of various leadership awards on turncoat politicians, and exposed a pattern of abhorrent practices at their facilities nationwide. But I’m glad they appreciate these contributions enough to confer membership on me.

The letter from Cecile Richards says nothing is going to stop them from making sure women have access to “safe, legal abortion,” but that my support is absolutely critical in 2014 to help them lead the fight.

She admits they’re having trouble: “Five years ago, very few people thought legal access to abortion was really at risk.” Then she goes on to fret about waiting periods, counseling and ultrasound requirements, admitting privileges, and “unnecessary” building code laws for abortion clinics.

Good. It’s nice to know what bothers the nation’s largest abortion chain, so as Member number 1840624, I’ll do everything in my power to concentrate on doing those things every chance I get.

$2 Million Settlement Reached in Woman’s Death Following Abortion at Planned Parenthood

Posted by League Staff (February 12, 2014 at 11:22 am)

Settlement order from Tonya Reaves lawsuitOn July 20, 2012, 24-year old Tonya Reaves had a second trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood’s facility in Chicago.

Following the abortion, she experienced a series of complications, but Planned Parenthood did not call 911 to help for her.  Five and a half hours later, she was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

A few hours later, Tonya was dead.

Just last week it was revealed [PDF] that a Planned Parenthood and the other plaintiffs in the case are on the hook for a $2 million wrongful death settlement in the lawsuit brought by Alvin Jones, the father of Reaves’ only heir, her son, who is also named Alvin after his father.

Pro-Life Action League executive director Eric Scheidler commented:

Reading this settlement, I was struck by the impact it will have on young Alvin Jones when he starts receiving money on his 18th birthday. [Continue reading ...]

As Abortion Rate Continues to Fall, Planned Parenthood’s Abortion Numbers Rise

Posted by Matt Yonke (February 3, 2014 at 1:59 pm)

No Planned ParenthoodA new study [PDF] from the Guttmacher Institute reports that the abortion rate in the US has continued to decline and is now at a level so low it hasn’t been seen since the 1970s.

The study found a rate of 16.9 abortions per thousand women of childbearing age in 2011, though it did not probe the possible causes for the decline.

But even as the abortion rate continues its slow decline, Planned Parenthood—the nation’s largest abortion chain—continues to perform more and more abortions and dominate the abortion market.

According to their annual report [PDF], Planned Parenthood performed 333,964 abortions in 2012—almost 80,000 more than they performed in 2005. That’s about one every 95 seconds, every day of the year. [Continue reading ...]

League Joins National Boycott of Girl Scout Cookies

Posted by Eric Scheidler (January 30, 2014 at 1:56 pm)

Girl Scouts Trefoil cookie with Planned Parenthood logoThe Pro-Life Action League is joining a nationwide boycott being organized by John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco, in Waco, Texas, who has been battling the Girl Scouts for years over their ties to abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

This year’s nationwide boycott was triggered by the Girl Scout’s glowing praise last year for two of the pro-life movement’s greatest foes: Texas state senator Wendy Davis and Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The Girl Scouts called Davis as an “incredible” woman who deserved to be on a list of 2013 “Women of the Year,” only a few weeks after calling Kathleen Sebelius a woman of “courage” and “character.”

Davis rose to national fame for filibustering a Texas law banning late term abortions and requiring abortion facilities to adhere to safety standards, while wearing a pair of pink sneakers. Sebelius is responsible for implementing the pro-abortion provisions of Obamacare, including the infamous HHS Mandate that forces employers to provide free abortion-inducing drugs in their health plans, regardless of any religious or moral objections.

Girl Scouts’ Ties to Planned Parenthood

As detailed at the official CookieCott 2014 website, both the national Girl Scouts USA and many local Girl Scout councils have supported and promoted the work of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, even encouraging girls to volunteer with Planned Parenthood.

League Calls Senator Durbin Back to His Pro-Life Roots at Planned Parenthood Gala

Posted by Matt Yonke (January 27, 2014 at 4:06 pm)

Protest of Planned Parenthood and Dick DurbinOn Thursday, January 23, the Pro-Life Action League brought out over two dozen stalwart activists came out on a bitterly cold five degree evening to protest of Planned Parenthood’s annual Roe v. Wade gala in Chicago.

In addition to celebrating the tragic court decision that stripped unborn babies of their right to life through all nine months of pregnancy, Planned Parenthood was also giving pro-choice Senator Dick Durbin a “Lifetime Achievement Award”.

As horrible as this is by itself, it’s also extremely incongruous, because Senator Durbin used to be a staunch pro-life advocate! The League brought signs reading, Return to Your Pro-Life Roots, Senator Durbin! and Senator Durbin: Unborn Babies Need You Back! [Continue reading ...]
