The New York Times is reporting, "The White House, concerned about possible repercussions of the Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood, has proposed preserving federal payments to the group if it discontinues providing abortions."
The Times continues to completely politicize the president's motives, while in effect---and likely inadvertently, exposing some of Planned Parenthood's own deceptive motives.
President Trump told the New York Times: "As I said throughout the campaign, I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women's health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of non-abortion services such as cancer screenings. Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identity as pro-choice. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women's health, while not providing abortion services."
This is like offering a fish a great life---worms on his plate every day for dinner if he will stay out of the water.
Dawn Laguens, executive vice president, responded, "Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept. Providing critical health care services for millions of America women is nonnegotiable."
If, as they repeatedly say, abortion is only 2 or 3% of their business---and they use none of the more than half a billion dollars they receive from tax payers each year for abortions, how are they "abandoning " their millions of patients?
Abortion is the cornerstone of the organization, so much so that Live Action learned employees are sometimes provided abortion quotas to fill.
Watch this 3-minute YouTube video of Sue Thayer, a former PP manager explaining to Lila Rose how the quota system works at PP.
Planned Parenthood doesn't have quotas for adoptions. It doesn't have quotas for prenatal care. It doesn't have quotas for mammograms because they don't do mammograms. But quotas for abortions? You bet your life, or at least the baby's life.
And who can forget Planned Parenthood's Doctor Deborah Nucatola discussing the price of aborted babies' body parts while sipping her wine?
And PP Doctor Mary Gatter talking about selling aborted baby body parts, explaining she does not want to "low ball" the price.
Gatter was nonchalant as she explained that she can ask surgeons to use certain procedures that will keep the baby "intact," ensuring a better harvest of the child's body parts.
You may also remember that it was Dr. Gatter who laughingly said it's not about the money, but "I want a Lamborghini."
The New York Times goes to great lengths to question Trump's motives.
They say, "Until 2012, when he announced he opposed abortion rights, Mr. Trump had supported legal measures allowing abortions."
Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand (D-NY) tells the Times that Mr. Trump has authorized the proposal because he wanted to be able to claim he had made an offer to Planned Parenthood and that officials with the group were not being reasonable.
But Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, told the Times Mr. Trump is just living up to his campaign promise.
I hope she's right. I want to believe she's right---however, his actions are, and will, speak louder than his words---regardless of his motives.
One thing is certain. Planned Parenthood is about abortion. First and foremost.
It is the face of evil.
PP's purpose is deeply rooted in that of its founder Margaret Sanger. Sanger, a eugenicist, worked endlessly and tirelessly at population control and weeding out "the less productive and less desirable" in our society.
Planned Parenthood continues to hearken to her voice, and marching to her drumbeat, invade America's black communities, setting up abortion clinics and establishing quotas for the abortion staff and rewarding them with a pizza party when they meet or exceed the quotas.
And each year, they reward the person who contributes most to their agenda, by awarding them with the "Margaret Sanger Award."
In 2009, when Hillary Clinton received the Margaret Sanger Award, she said this:
Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision ... And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.
I will never understand how 16% of self-identified evangelicals could vote for Hillary Clinton in the last election, while claiming to embrace the Bible as the inspired Word of God, but they did.
I do, however, understand very well how 80% of evangelicals could vote for Donald Trump.
This is it. Abortion. And the Supreme Court of the United States.
