Washington State has been given an A+ and is ranked #2 best state in the country for abortion services---2nd only to California, which is ranked #1.
According to NARAL's new report card, the West seems to lead the nation, with California ranked #1, Washington #2, Oregon #6 and Hawaii #4.
One of the lowest rated, least abortion friendly, states is Idaho. It's ranked 39 and got an F.
Even far right Massachusetts only got a B- and is ranked #18.
One of the key players in Washington State being an abortion leader is our own Governor Gregoire.
I have linked NARAL's new report card. Be sure to take a look at it.
NARAL's new 106-page annual report is dedicated to former Arizona Governor, now Homeland Security Secretary for President Obama, Janet Napolitano, because of her undying support of abortion and the businesses that advance it.
NARAL says of the former Arizona Governor, "She stood almost alone between Arizona's women's reproductive freedom and hostile, unrelenting legislators."
The "hostile unrelenting" legislators would be called such simply because they believe in the sanctity of life and are willing to vote their pro-life convictions.
Pro-life = "hostile." Pro-Abortion ="reproductive freedom."
NARAL and their double cousin, Planned Parenthood, have found a poster Governor replacement for Ms. Napolitano.
Governor Gregoire is standing in the gap. And getting an A+.
Steven Ertelt at LIFENEWS and others have reported that Washington State tax dollars are flowing to Planned Parenthood, through fraudulent billing practices on the part of Planned Parenthood as they overcharge the state.
An audit was called for.
According to the audit, state health officials found Planned Parenthood of Spokane, for example, was "unbundling" abortion claims and then billing for doctor visits when customers were just picking up prescriptions.
No big deal? Look again.
During the period audited, Planned Parenthood wrongly over-billed the State of Washington $629,143.
Planned Parenthood appealed the case against them and then announced a settlement where by they would not admit any incorrect billing practices and would only repay $345,000 of the $629,143 fraudulently billed.
Keep in mind this horse trading is being done with taxpayer's money.
It may also be happening with "help" from the mansion behind the Capitol, according to David Schmidt of Life Action, a pro-life organization that monitors Planned Parenthood.
Schmidt says since the audit, Cecile Richards, president of the national Planned Parenthood organization, has met with her friend Governor Gregoire.
Schmidt raises the question to Ertelt, "Did Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, hash out a deal where Planned Parenthood paid back some of their over-billing while not admitting to any wrong-doing and escaping fraud charges?"
Following her meeting with Gov. Gregoire, Richards posted a comment on Gregoire's Facebook page saying it was "great" to spend time with her.
"We may never know for sure," Schmidt says, "but we do know that Planned Parenthood's operation is routinely protected by political allies."
Although the state is sinking in a multi-billion dollar budget short fall, Governor Gregoire has decided to re-affirm taxpayer funding for "Take Charge," a free birth control program that sends taxpayer dollars to---you guessed it.
Everyone should have such a friend.
Please contact Governor Gregoire and respectfully tell her you strongly oppose her funding of "Take Charge" and all other Planned Parenthood programs.
You may send her an email message using this link.
I personally feel this is a time to rise. To be heard. I know we have had some setbacks---not getting R-71 passed and not seeing as many Christian conservatives elected to the WA State Legislature as we had all hoped for, but regardless of circumstances, I feel there should be some urgency to our "values and principles" voice being heard at this time. I know many of our readers will understand what I am saying.
Be respectful, but be on task in being heard.
ALSO. Over the next several days I will be writing on some issues that may be explosive. Please read the blogs, pass them on to your lists, and stand with us in prayer.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
Thank you for standing with us financially.
Faith and Freedom
