Fr. Pavone: Don’t Rely on Planned Parenthood’s Words

NEW YORK – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of Abolishing Abortion, released the following statement today regarding Planned Parenthood’s announcement that it will no longer accept “reimbursement” for the organs, limbs and skin of the children it aborts.

“One thing we have learned over the last four decades about the abortion industry is that – as an industry – it neither desires nor is capable of reform. Today’s announcement by Planned Parenthood is meaningless and does not settle any controversy. Nor does it answer any of the questions that the ongoing investigations into Planned Parenthood’s actions have raised. You can’t practice vice virtuously.

“Given the atrocities Planned Parenthood commits against children, it cannot be trusted to suddenly begin mending its ways. We do not rely on their words; we rely on the evidence that the investigations will continue to uncover – and so should the American people.”

Cecile Richards ‘defense’ shows Planned Parenthood is running scared

Monday, July 27th, 2015

NEW YORK – In a telling interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC This Week, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards evaded direct questions about what the two videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show regarding the abortion giant’s harvesting and selling of baby parts.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded:

“Cecile Richard’s defense was no more than a deflection. She kept asserting that the videos were “highly edited.” But the words coming out of the mouths of Deborah Nucatola and Mary Gatter weren’t placed there by editors; they were placed there by Deborah and Mary. And those words indicate that both the prices and the procedures are altered.

“Planned Parenthood is clearly on the defensive. Richards asserts that she looks forward to the facts coming out. If I were her, I wouldn’t be looking forward to that at all, because the additional videos coming out will only confirm what we have already said: Planned Parenthood kills babies, including late in pregnancy, and harvests their organs for sale.

“Instead of trying to attack what pro-life people are doing, Planned Parenthood needs to explain what it is doing, and then it needs to stop doing it, whether that be by choice or by force of law.”

Okay Cecile, Name a Time and a Place and Let’s Talk About Abortion

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Recently, in a Time article, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said that America needs to talk – really talk – about abortion.

Yes, it’s a conversation that’s long overdue; over 56.9 million dead babies overdue, a third of them being Black babies. But let’s have that talk on a level playing field.

When we talk, let’s put euphemisms aside and let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. Let’s be truthful with the public. Let’s be clear from the onset – we’re talking about ABORTION. Not reproductive rights. Not healthcare or access to healthcare. Not a woman’s right to do what she wants with her body because the baby is not her body.

Many pro-life leaders have challenged Cecile Richards to have this conversation several years ago but We’ve never received a response.

Now that it’s her idea to “really talk” about abortion we pray that she won’t shy away from REALLY talking about abortion.

Abortion, although legal, is certainly not safe as they would have you think. This is evident by the hundreds of women who have died from abortion with report after report of ambulances being called to abortion ‘clinics’ to transport patients to hospitals after botched abortions.

Along with physical harm there’s psychological harm done by abortion as evident by the women and men of Silent No More Awareness Campaign; we speak openly of the harm of abortion on our lives.

In the past, any discussion over abortion has been heavily slanted in favor of the pro-abortion lobby. The abortion industry has millions of dollars to funnel into the media machine in order to spread their propaganda. Much of those millions is tax-payer dollars. Mainstream media is often happy to help push the abortion agenda; hiding the truth from the general public.

Like so many other propagandists Ms. Richards says, “Let’s talk about abortion,” but then is nowhere to be found when we say, “Okay, let’s talk.”

Let’s talk about what an abortion procedure is. Let’s talk about why you don’t want parents notified when children want to have an abortion. Let’s talk about the annual over half a billion dollars you receive in tax-payer money from our government. Let’s talk about who you target for abortion. Let’s talk about the many Kermit Gosnell abortionists that are performing abortions in cities all across America.

Let’s REALLY talk about abortion. When and where would you like to meet?

Pelosi, Clinton and Richards: A Scary Trio

Friday, March 21st, 2014

140321 blog image framed

The war on the wombs of women, women’s fertility, and the human and civil rights of mothers and their babies is real.

The world has gone mad, ensconced in webs of chicanery and corrosion. So let’s not even try to pretend that a society with anti-fertility goddesses Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Cecile Richards all simultaneously “calling the shots” against the wombs of women is all just a figment of our imagination.

Wake up! This scary trio’s antics is no dream…it’s a nightmare!

For instance, Clinton recently told the United Nations, “You cannot make progress on gender equality or broader human development without safeguarding women’s reproductive health or rights.” Her speech was part of the UN’s celebration of the International Women’s Day.

Also, let’s not forget that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards mounted a Valentine’s Day massacre inviting women to celebrate the holiday by having abortions. And although she is a mother of three living children, she holds on to her “macabre diatribe” that babies aren’t human until they take their first breaths.

Moreover, while it’s true that Congresswoman Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood’s “Margaret Sanger Award” – almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has. If Mrs. Pelosi wants to finally take her role as a public servant seriously, she will reject the award named for Sanger – a racist woman who on record had no problem speaking at a Ku Klux Klan meeting.

Since 1966, “The Sanger Award” has been given annually by Planned Parenthood. Uncle M.L. was also named one of award’s first four recipients, but refused to accept it personally. [See MLK and PPH Part 1 & Part 2]

It’s ironic that Planned Parenthood, an organization that has done more to trample upon human rights, would extend to Uncle M.L. an award for his human rights work.

Actually when Aunt Coretta accepted the Planned Parenthood Award instead of her husband, PPH did not advocate abortions, and its racist roots had not yet been exposed. Also, like Mrs. Barbara Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush, Aunt Coretta did not share her husband’s views on the sanctity of life.

Knowing what we know now – 56 million dead children later – is that carcinogenic, fertility-blocking birth control and abortions kill babies and often injure their mothers.

I’m confident that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who gave his life defending others’ rights to life and liberty, and who often defended the sanctity of human life and the human personality, would again reject any association with Planned Parenthood today.

M.L. King had a dream, not this nightmare.

He prayed that the human race would forsake eugenics and genocide and embrace “Agape Love” on behalf of the human race – unconditional, selfless love – the highest form according to the Bible.

Father Frank Pavone is right; my uncle M.L. knew the difference between killing the poor and serving the poor. This is the basis of the difference between the dream and the nightmare.

Added to this nightmare are the increasingly deep pockets of those like Billionaire Warren Buffett’s foundation, who has hired Tracy Weitz, the woman who oversaw the research project used by California legislators to justify allowing non-physicians to perform first trimester abortions, to head its domestic operations. This former Planned Parenthood employee will be one of two people in charge of the Buffett Foundation’s $2 billion domestic operations budget.

Clinton, Pelosi and Richards need to “woman up” and admit that their anger against the ills committed against women in the past – and present – does not add up to their formula for justice.

Killing babies and maiming mothers will not pave the way for the feminist rights that women are crying for. Two wrongs can never make a right. Civil rights and human rights will always decry the killing of baby girls in the womb, of killing babies because of their ethnicity, of killing babies for any reason. And certainly for convincing their mothers, fathers, families and society that it’s all in the name of justice.

Shame on the scary trio!

Crazy Valentine’s Day Pitch by PPH and Cecile Richards

An Open Letter to Cecile Richards

Really Cecile, are you truly promoting a romantic abortion theme for Valentine’s Day? You and your new sidekick Nancy Pelosi are really a pair. First, just before Valentine’s Day, Planned Parenthood announces that you will give Ms. Pelosi the PPH Margaret Sanger Award, and then you follow up with a Valentine’s Day twitter feed with a picture of you sporting a heart poster that reads #whatwomenneed for Valentine’s Day – safe + legal abortion.

Now you are using your bully pit to devalue Agape Love and Romantic Love, to promote abortion? When will you ever stop? Perhaps you don’t realize that women actually deserve love, respect and life affirming support rather than your fertility blocking abusive agenda that ends the life of innocent babies, while often maiming, if not killing, their mothers.

My friend Janet Morana has written an informative book, RECALL ABORTION that all of your supporters need to read. Abortion is bad business, and is a really bad product, and you want to gift the women of America and the world with abortion.

My, my, my Ms. Richards. You have duped the women of America and the world for far too long. You don’t love us at all. You love your terrible agenda. I wonder if there is any love in your heart at all, or if all of your soul is connected to the big checks that PPH keeps racking up in the name of abortion?

Somehow, I must pray for the heart to pray for you and your followers. So much harm is wrapped up in your poison candy box, which reminds me of the spindle prick that put Sleeping Beauty to sleep or the apple the wicked stepmother gave to Snow White that caused her to fall to sleep, too. You had millions and millions fooled for far too long, so over 55 million babies are dead since your tarnished victory in 1973.

Well Ma’am, the women of American and the world have been asleep for far too long; because too many fell for your legal abortion and carcinogenic contraception lies. Stop lying to women Cecile. Abortions hurt women and kill babies.

My abortion hurt me and killed my babies. I know the truth now, Planned Parenthood lied to me. Planned Parenthood lied to my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Planned Parenthood is lying today and so are you! Dear Ms. Richards: Women need love, dignity, support and respect – NOT ABORTIONS!
