Pro-life students affiliated with UCLAs student pro-life newspaper, The Advocate, placed calls last week into Planned Parenthood offices as part of an undercover project.  The phone calls suggested that a donation would be made to the Planned Parenthood office only if the money would be used to abort black babies.  Planned Parenthoods development director for that office said they would be happy to accept the donation to be utilized only for the abortion of black children.  This situation has created a series of protests and outrages from the pro-life community and from members of Congress. 

 

Planned Parenthood, although later apologizing for the statement, stating that it adamantly rejects racist policies or practices, nevertheless has not fired or suspended the employee who said they would be happy to accept the donations targeting black babies for abortion.  We hope to have available on radio this week the actual audio transcript from the undercover investigation. 

 

At the same time, three U.S. Congressmen, including Representative Doug Lamborn from Colorado, Steve King from Iowa, and Joe Pitts from Pennsylvania are all preparing legislation calling once and for all for the defunding of Planned Parenthood, based this time on a review of materials posted on Planned Parenthoods website known as teenwire.com.  After reviewing the website, Representative Lamborn told reporters at CNSNews.com that teenwire is another reason we should pull all federal funding from Planned Parenthood.  Steve King went on to say that there should be no more money that goes to any Internet site that promotes promiscuity or sexual license in any way.  Finally, Representative Joe Pitts told CNSNews.com, I dont believe taxpayer funding should be going to groups that put sexually explicit material on the Internet targeted at minors.  According to the CNS News report, the Congressman spoke to the reporters after reviewing materials from Planned Parenthoods teenwire.com website which states that its mission is to provide medically accurate information primarily focused on teenagers. 

 

Some of the material placed on the website is not only inappropriate and offensive, but is also sexually oriented in its approach.  The website promotes promiscuity and sexual license and is at the same time receiving federal funds.  Representative King went on to add that teenwire is part of Planned Parenthoods wider agenda, which he believes is detrimental to the American culture.  I think its part of its strategic plan to break down the moral order of our society so that the people on the other side of morality and integrity can take power in this country. 

 

In the meantime, Planned Parenthood still receives over $250 million of federal tax dollars under Title X.  This has to stop, and we are now calling on the defunding of Planned Parenthood to take place by this Congress.  If you want information on how you can sign a petition to aid in this regard, click here.
