Saint Teresa of Calcutta & Father Frank Pavone

Father Frank Pavone and Saint Teresa of Calcutta

From the time he began leading Priests for Life in 1993, Fr. Frank Pavone maintained regular contact with Mother Teresa of Calcutta, including by phone conversations and visits, until the time of her death in 1997. Mother Teresa and Fr. Frank discussed pro-life strategy for ending abortion, and she greatly encouraged the specific ministry of Priests for Life.

Below are some of the things that Mother Teresa said about abortion, the pro-life movement, and Priests for Life.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta:  Pro-Life Quotes

But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.

And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.

By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.

And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.

Fr. Frank Pavone Hit Piece by Louie Verecchio

Over at Louie Verecchio’s blog he posted a vile article, “Pro-Lifeism: Worshiping the Human Embryo.”

Rather than condemn his article point-by-point, I post here my comment that is at the blog:

Comment by Nina D.M. Rhea

This pathetic, useless, and unkind hit piece on Father Frank Pavone is nasty. I’m a Trad Catholic who is consecrated to Our Lady via the Mission Immaculatae. I suggest Mr. Verecchio do the same. She will soften your approach to hot topics. That is what she has done for me.

This nasty hit piece accomplishes the following:
-Puts a bad light on Trad Catholics.
-Curses pro-life activists.
-Condemns Fr. Frank Pavone.
-Highlights Mr. Verecchio’s temptations toward Gnosticism.

There is no such thing as “embryo worship.” In fact, I was accused of “fetal worship” by a vehemently pro-abortion member of NARAL at a protest.

Human offspring aka embryos are in great danger. They are being Cannibalized By Humanity. Write about that why don’t you.

Fr. Pavone has done a yeoman’s work to raise awareness among bishops, priests and the laity about the demonic abortion racket. He deserves your praise not condemnation. So what if he rattles your sensitivities? Who the hell are you to complain?

How Abortion Leads to Euthanasia

About this blog post image

The Modern Hippocratic Oath.  PBS.  2001.

The excerpt says:

Yet paradoxically, even as the modern oath’s use has burgeoned, its content has tacked away from the classical oath’s basic tenets. According to a 1993* survey of 150 U.S. and Canadian medical schools, for example, only 14 percent of modern oaths prohibit euthanasia, 11 percent hold convenant with a deity, 8 percent foreswear abortion, and a mere 3 percent forbid sexual contact with patients—all maxims held sacred in the classical version. The original calls for free tuition for medical students and for doctors never to “use the knife” (that is, conduct surgical procedures)—both obviously out of step with modern-day practice. Perhaps most telling, while the classical oath calls for “the opposite” of pleasure and fame for those who transgress the oath, fewer than half of oaths taken today insist the taker be held accountable for keeping the pledge.

Indeed, a growing number of physicians have come to feel that the Hippocratic Oath is inadequate to address the realities of a medical world that has witnessed huge scientific, economic, political, and social changes, a world of legalized abortion, physician-assisted suicide, and pestilences unheard of in Hippocrates’ time.  Some doctors have begun asking pointed questions regarding the oath’s relevance:  In an environment of increasing medical specialization, should physicians of such different stripes swear to a single oath? With governments and health-care organizations demanding patient information as never before, how can a doctor maintain a patient’s privacy? Are physicians morally obligated to treat patients with such lethal new diseases as AIDS or the Ebola virus?

Father Frank Pavone:

The abortion mentality never stops with abortion. After all, if a mother has the right to choose to kill her innocent, unwanted child, why doesn’t the child have the right to kill her innocent, unwanted mother?

That’s what the right to die movement is all about. It has nothing to do with people wanting to die. It has everything to do with people wanting to live, but other people not caring for them and claiming that they are better off if a doctor kills them.

It’s an exact parallel with abortion, because women who get abortions don’t want them. Someone else does. It’s not about women’s rights, but about how we have failed to meet the needs of women.

Testimony for ABX2-15.  Assisted Suicide Advocate.  The Hearing at State Capitol.  Sep. 1, 2015.

Christy O’Donnell dropped a big bomb:  She wants the same CHOICE she had to abort her daughter in America.

(Transcript by West Coast Pro-Life):

“To think, looking at my daughter, when she falls asleep, I realize that when I look at her and kiss her, that she’s alive because I legally got to make that choice.  Our laws allow me, as a parent, to make a decision about her, whether she lived or died.  And yet, now that I am at the end of my life, I don’t have that same decision in California, because that’s where I live.”

Folks, we at WCPL believe that any parent who reveals to their child, adult or adolescent, that her life was almost taken by her own mother, is an evil, wicked child abuser. That’s the way we see it.

The GOP Party Platform: Is It Protecting All Life?

THE RIGHT TO LIFE page 8 2012

The California Republican Party is the part y that protects innocent life because we believe life begins at conception and ends at natural death.

We support laws that protect unborn children from partial birth, sex selection, and tax-payer funded abortions, and abortions performed as a form of birth control or on minor girls without their parent’s notification and consent. We believe that the question of abortion is a ma tter that should be left to the people through their elected representatives, not usurped by the United States Supreme Court, and believe that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be reversed. We support adoption as an alternative to abortion and call on lawmakers to reduce the bureaucratic burden placed on adoptive couples.

As a part of respecting the sanctity of life for disabled persons, we oppose efforts to legalize assisted suicide or euthanasia. We support a comprehensive ban on all human cloning. The California Republican Party supports ethical stem cell research that focuses on cures not destroying innocent human Life.

The more important connection between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood is Dr. Ronald Berman, a 73 year-old abortion provider, and Medical Director at Planned Parenthood, Fresno, as well as Planned Parenthood Mountain View, CA.  At the same time Berman was doing abortions for Planned Parenthood, he was also employed as Senior Medical Director at StemExpress doing the very abortions that are contributing to the bottom line of the company he works for. In fact, in the undercover videos, Holly O’Donnell identifies Berman as having a reputation for “going viciously fast” in his abortion and harvesting practices at Planned Parenthood.


The Democrats: The Party of Death

2006.  Regnery.

Is the Democratic Party the “Party of Death”?If you look at their agenda they are.

IT’S NOT JUST abortion-on-demand. It’s euthanasia, embryo destruction, even infanticide—and a potentially deadly concern with “the quality of life” of disabled people.   If you think these issues don’t concern you—guess again. The Party of Death could be roaring into the White House, as National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru shows, in the person of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In The Party of Death, Ponnuru details how left-wing radicals, using abortion as their lever, took over the Democratic Party—and how they have used their power to corrupt our law and politics, abolish our fundamental right to life, and push the envelope in ever more dangerous directions. In The Party of Death, Ponnuru reveals:

* How Hillary Clinton could use the abortion issue (but not in the way you think) to become president * Why the conventional wisdom about Roe v.Wade is a lie * How the party of death—a coalition of special interests ranging from Planned Parenthood to Hollywood—came to own the Democratic Party * How the mainstream media promotes the party of death * Why Jesse Jackson, Al Gore, and other leading liberals gave up being pro-life * How liberals use animal rights to displace human rights * The Democratic presidential candidate who said that infanticide is a mother’s “choice” * How doctors—and other health care professionals—are being coerced, by law, into violating their consciences * The ultrasound revolution:  why there’s hope to stop the party of death

Ponnuru’s shocking exposé shows just how extreme the Party of Death has become as they seek to destroy every inconvenient life, demand fealty to their radical agenda, and punish anyone who defies them. But he also shows how the tide is turning, how the Party of Death can be defeated, and why its last victim might be the Democratic Party itself.

Tainted Measles Vaccine: What Most People Don’t Know

“The problems with the measles vaccine” – By Jay Carpenter, M.D.  Cal-Catholic blog.

‘There is an ethical concern about the measles vaccine issue that I do not believe the American public is aware: a component of the current MMR vaccine is derived from an aborted fetal cell line. As such, there is a large group of Americans who will not avail themselves of this “tainted” therapy.  The unfortunate truth is that there are ethical, morally acceptable alternative vaccines that are simply not made available to Americans.’

Prior to 2009, Merck, the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine used in the U.S. and in many other countries, made available individually separate vaccines for mumps and measles that were derived from the ethically acceptable sources as described.  In 2009, they stopped making these vaccines available, despite reassurances to the contrary.  Since then, Merck has refused to license these vaccines to other companies who were interested in making them available to the public.  It has been since 2009 that the incidence of measles in this country has risen, so it is not inconceivable that legitimate ethical concerns have been at least one factor for the decline in the rate of measles vaccination.

Former Abortionist Surrenders Instruments to Pope

Life Site News Story

  • Click header for full story.


ROME, October 1, 2013 ( – A former abortionist’s far-fetched dream of surrendering the medical instruments with which he had once performed abortions to Pope Francis became a reality recently, when, to his astonishment, Dr. Antonio Oriente found himself face to face with the pontiff.

In a testimony posted to Facebook, Dr. Antonio Oriente expresses his surprise at the encounter, explaining that he had originally decided not to go to Rome for a conference of gynecologists to which he was invited, because of a father-in-law in “grave health” and the fact that there was no guarantee he could even see the pope personally. But at the last minute, he changed his mind.

Blessed Mother Teresa Pray For Us – Quotes

In 2003, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta was beatified.  It is fitting that pro-life Catholics pray to her for intercessions to Jesus.

At the very least, say, “Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us!”

QUOTES of Blessed Mother Teresa:

“The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion.”

“What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

“Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants.”

“It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”

”The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts—a child—as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters.”

And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign.”

“Many people are very, very concerned with the children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on.  Many people are also concerned about the violence in this great country of the United States.  These concerns are very good.  But often these same people are not concerned with the millions who are being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers.  And this is the greatest destroyer of peace today – abortion which brings people to such blindness.”

Sex Toys Demo To Fund Planned Parenthood


MARCH 26, 2013

Contact:  Nina Rhea, Director, Pro-Life Action of Oregon

Sex Toys Demonstration To Fund Planned Parenthood

Sounding the alarm to get Planned Parenthood out of our schools.

(Portland, Ore)  Should a sex toy demonstration be the main feature at a Planned Parenthood fund raiser, an organization that has access to schools?  The March 26, 2013 fund raiser is for Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette (PPCW).  The sex toy business is named She Bop, located in North Portland.

Planned Parenthood’s local fund raiser is called “Sexy Tuesdays” and will be hosted at a wine bar known as Shaker and Vine, 2929 SE Powell Blvd. in Portland.  According to PPCW’s website, one purpose of Sexy Tuesdays is “to raise funds for PPCW’s health center services and education programs.”

PPCW’s fund raiser advertisement on their website reads, “In this class, you will learn about the origin of sex toys and their evolution throughout history. She Bop’s very own AJ (aka Amory Jane) will explain the different types of toys, what they are used for, what they are made from, as well as certain ingredients to be aware of when selecting the best product for you. She will also address how to maintain and store your toys so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible.  Sipping vino and studying sex toys… who knew Tuesdays could be so sexy? We can’t wait to see you there!”

It’s obvious that this sex toy workshop is for adults, we get it. We are not accusing PPCW of sex toy demos in schools.  This workshop is another example why we’re sounding the alarm that Planned Parenthood poses a clear danger to our school children!  PPCW’s public image as a benevolent bunch of folks who provide health care services is an illusion.  PPCW is in our schools to sexualize and desensitize children!  Legislators and parents need to wake up to that fact.  Planned Parenthood is dangerously inappropriate in schools.

I’m not alone in that regard.  Last week, PPCW’s influential lobbying with the Portland Public School District and School Board has resulted in a Benson High School math and electronics teacher subjected to administrative leave for his objections to Planned Parenthood’s “sexologists” invading his classroom.  Article.  He will probably be fired.  (Sexologist is a sex educator.)

The teacher, Bill Diss, was attempting to protect his students from the degrading topics that Planned Parenthood’s curriculum includes:  masturbation, how to put on a condom, anal sex is acceptable, get an abortion when birth control fails, or get sterilized.

Planned Parenthood’s sexuality programs do not teach human fetal development or that risky sex is deadly.  Rather, these programs teach school children that sex is pleasurable and a right, a social justice.  In fact, “reproductive justice” is the current mission of the reproductive rights movement.

Dr. Miriam Grossman in her October 2009 talk at the Heritage Foundation about her book, “You’re Teaching My Child What?” notes that, “The principles of sexual health education are not based on hard science. Sex education is animated by a vision of how society must change, and because of this, sex ed curricula omit critical biological truths and endorse high-risk behaviors.”  []

Planned Parenthood’s K-12 sexuality curricula are their guaranteed access to future clients.  Their revolving door marketing plan is brilliant:  teach that sex is fun, sex is their right at any age, ignore the state’s age of consent law (Oregon’s is 18), give them contraceptives; and when these fail, get an abortion at Planned Parenthood.  Most importantly, PPCW repeats the propaganda to legislators that the services they provide will prevent teen pregnancy.  The opposite is true: more teens engage in underage sex due to these programs. It’s a clever ruse to gain access to schools and children.

Another strong objection is that PPCW receives revenue from our taxes to destroy the souls of children.  Their 2010-2011 Annual Report shows tax revenue at $1.2 million, while donor contributions was a whopping $3.3 million.  Clearly, the abortion and sex training corporation does not need our taxes.

One of these days Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, and Advocates for Youth — the principal federally funded sexuality trainers who all share the same ideology — will be kicked out of our schools.  Until that time, I advise that parents either get an opt-out form for your child; or, better yet, send your child to a parochial school or home school them yourself.

Visit PPCW’s website, Sexy Tuesdays, to view their March 26, 2013 fund raiser ad.  I include the ad here in the event it is taken down.  “Click here to read more about the content of the class: She Bop Blog”)  Warning: very offensive.


Abortionist Peter Bours Hangs Up His Assault Weapons

After 38 years of murdering babies and victimizing pregnant girls, infamous late-term abortionist Dr. Peter Boars et al. have CLOSED their third and final abortuary. 


One could say he’s hung up his assault weapons.

Boars closed his Portland and Forest Grove abortuaries over the last two years.

Located in Eugene, Oregon,  it appear this abortionist has retired his abortion business for all time and gives Planned Parenthood his ‘blessing.’ Announcement:

  • Note: Effective the end of February 2013 we have retired and closed our practice. We have enjoyed our 38 years of providing reproductive health services to women and families in Oregon and will miss our interactions with all of you.We are fortunate that Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon (PPSO) offers abortion services at their wonderful new building at 3579 Franklin Boulevard in Eugene. We feel comfortable in recommending PPSO to you for ongoing care and services.Should any of you need a copy of your recent medical records from our office you can contact us at We will attempt to respond to your requests within one week.W A Peter Bours MD


dr peter bours nyt
Dr. Boars Quote in a 1985 New York Times Magazine article, page 4:

After an abortion, the doctor must inspect these remains to make sure that all the fetal parts and the placenta have been removed. Any tissue left inside the uterus can start an infection. Dr. Bours squeezed the contents of the sock into a shallow dish, and poked about with a finger. ”You can see a teeny-tiny hand,” he said.  At the sink and sterilizer, where the surgical instruments are cleaned, a nurse stood and turned on the faucet. ”I’ve been cleaning up after him for four years,” she said. ”We all wish it were formless, but it’s not. It has a form. And it’s painful. There’s a lot of emotional pain.”

Nina Rhea, director of Pro-Life Action of Oregon responds.

“Dr. Peter Bours once justified his abortion practice citing malpractice insurance premiums for delivering live babies.”Dr. Peter Bours is nothing better than a monster who abused his God-given freedoms.  May God have mercy on his soul.”
May pregnant mothers
take their children to
Jesus, who is Life.

Norma McCorvey – aka Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade

Norma McCorvey is now a pro-life Catholic.

She had indeed become pregnant with her third child and sought to end her pregnancy, but she was not aware of all the implications of abortion or even what the term itself meant. “‘Abortion’, to me, meant ‘going back’ to the condition of not being pregnant.”

She did not fully realize that this process would end a human life.

She says that her attorney Sarah Weddington, rather than correcting her misconceptions, deliberately confused the issue: “For their part, my lawyers lied to me about the nature of abortion.  Weddington convinced me, ‘It’s just a piece of tissue. You just missed your period.'”

Just a piece of tissue.  That same lie is told today by Planned Parenthood’s minions.  To young, scared girls.


On January 22, 2013 at the Portland Hilton, Sarah Weddington will be the keynote speaker at the annual Planned Parenthood luncheon.

‘Risky Choice:  the Democrats Double Down on Abortion

Ramesh Ponnuru


ABORTION was the theme of speeches by Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood; Nancy Keenan, the president of a group called NARAL Pro-Choice America; and activist Sandra Fluke, famous for having been called a slut by Rush Limbaugh. Maria Ciano, addressing the convention as a former Republican, endorsed the right to choose. So did Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and San Antonio mayor Julián Castro. Caroline Kennedy, herself famous for being the daughter of a former president, said that she was especially concerned about reproductive health care “as a Catholic.” Actress Kerry Washington mentioned the right to choose in her speech. The president did as well.

The Democrats’ views on abortion policy have not changed: They have long been committed to keeping abortion unrestricted and to increasing its subsidization. Over the years they have become more uniformly committed to that view, and Republicans to its opposite, as pro-life Democrats and pro-choice Republicans have left their parties. What has changed is that the Democrats of 2012 are expressing their support of abortion with a degree of rhetorical aggressiveness that they have in the past shied away from. President Obama is running for reelection with the most strongly pro-abortion message of any national campaign in history.

Four Predators and Their Prey – ABC’s The View


Who is better for Women:  Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?”

ABC’s THE VIEW – Aired October 18, 2012

THE PREDATORS:  Whoopie Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shephard  { Note:  the show’s only conservative is E. Hasslebeck and she is pro-life, not a predator.}


Video Transcript by Nina Rhea, Pro-Life Action of Oregon:

These predators would make very scary Halloween costumes!

Whoopie:  A candidate’s stands on women’s issues like equal pay and abortion rights could be key to winning an election before Tuesday’s night debate.  Now Gov. Romney was leading women voter’s after the first debate.

Elisabeth Hasslebeck:   The number of women living in poverty under Obama’s watch is at a record high.  This is not a woman’s president!

Sherri Shephard:  But that [poverty] is not only a woman’s issue.  A woman’s issue is equal pay and ‘please don’t tell me what to do with my body.’

B. Walters:   There are women who do have to go to Planned Parenthood for a mammogram.  Gov. Romney has changed his position.  He explained why he did and what made him change his position; he is against abortion except for cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.

Joy Behar:  Right, but those are very unusual circumstances.  He was pro-choice and now he is no longer.  And women will vote on that issue [reproductive rights] … a survey reports that 38% of women said they were pro-choice and they would vote on the issue of abortion.

Hasslebeck:  38% is low.

Whoopie:  One of the reasons there is such high unemployment in women is because women have lost their jobs in industries … are often the first fired… The 580,000 jobs that Mr. Romney was talking about is it’s not quite that number.  I think economics is one of the issues in this election.   and this whole debate is about whose to say what’s okay for you and your body . . .

Joy Behar:  Women’s issues like abortion and birth control are economic issues because they will put you in the poor house if you have a lot of kids that you don’t want . . .and WHY DO YOU WANT TO BRING CHILDREN INTO THE WORLD THAT YOU DON’T WANT!  IT JUST CREATES TERRIBLE  THINGS FOR THE SOCIETY!


Exposed: Catholics for Obama – Discover The Networks

What conservative pro-life Catholics need to know about


Profile update from Discover The Networks.  Excerpts:


A project of Catholic Democrats, Catholics For Obama (CFO) was formed to promote the presidential candidacy of Senator Barack Obama in 2008.


Though Obama has been an unwavering backer of abortion rights throughout his years in politics—he opposed even the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act as a state senator—CFO says that by the standards of “Catholic Social Teaching,” Obama is technically “pro-life” because he “has spent his entire career striving for the common good.” Specifically, CFO praises the President for supporting “health care programs that will cover all Americans, a living wage for working families, and solutions that allow distressed families to stay in their homes.” Moreover, CFO reasons that Obama’s presidency will ultimately reduce the number of abortions “by promoting health care for pregnant women and better infant care, day care and job training.”


This is the ideology of CATHOLICS FOR OBAMA who have posted the following on their website:

Is Barack Obama Really Pro-Life?

The answer is “yes.” Looking through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching, Senator Obama has spent his entire career striving for the common good.  He supports health care programs that will cover all Americans, a living wage for working families, and solutions that allow distressed families to stay in their homes. And rather than trying to overturn Roe v. Wade, an ineffective strategy for 40 years, Senator Obama will reduce abortions. How?  By promoting health care for pregnant women and better infant care, day care and job training.  In fact, data has shown that social and education programs actually reduce abortions.

We at Pro-Life Action of Oregon wonder:  Is Matt Cato a Catholic For Obama?  (Cato is the Director of the Portland Archdiocesan Life, Peace, and Justice Office; he manages CCHD grants.)

In last week’s Sentinel article, Cato was paraphrased as follows:

“In addition to the many Catholic programs . . . the church has an obligation to advocate for government aid.

“If society can remove financial pressures, that will end the reason cited for 7 in 10 abortions.”

This is Obama’s “abortion reduction distortion” in Obamacare.

1970’s Abortion Propaganda in the 21st Century

IS ABORTION EVER “NECESSARY”?  The evidence says “NO!”

Time and time again, research continues to debunk the false arguments and propaganda used to justify the murder and dehumanization of preborn children. The latest data presented at the international scientific symposium validate the position that American Life League has maintained since our inception: Abortion is not needed to save a mother’s life.

Judie Brown, President, American Life League

During this 2012 election season, abortion propagandists are once again dragging out 1970’s propaganda to justify killing preborn children.

You have to keep telling them to get the facts!

Due to advanced 21st Century medical discoveries and procedures, ABORTION is NEVER necessary!!

New studies show that those who argue that abortion is sometimes necessary to “save the life of the mother,” and that it lowers maternal mortality are flat out wrong. Abortion does not improve maternal health.

Planned Parenthood’s ‘Truth Team’ Forgets Its Abortions

Planned Parenthood’s ‘Truth Team’ Forgets Its Abortions |

By Susan Wills, Assistant director for education and outreach, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities.



Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has dispatched a “Truth Team” to rally opposition to the Pence Amendment (H.R. 1, sec. 4013), a measure to stop federal funding of PPFA and its 102 affiliates. But not everything said by PPFA officials and sympathetic media has been the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

In the interest of an informed debate about taxpayer funding of PPFA, a few omissions and potentially misleading statements are addressed below [in this article].


All this adds up to a revolving door of customers, constantly returning for the pricier services: emergency contraception; pregnancy tests; STD testing and treatment, including Pap tests for cervical cancer (100 percent of which is caused by certain persistent strains of the sexually transmitted human papilloma virus [HPV]), diagnostic colposcopies and LOOP/LEEP procedures; cryotherapy; HIV testing; and, of course, the big money-maker, abortions.

Why haven’t supporters of PPFA funding in Congress and the press noticed that something is amiss?  Here is an organization that offers contraception (35 percent of 2009 services)[16] for “safe sex,” yet also reports that 35 percent of its services deal with the failure of “safe sex” to protect against STDs (testing and treatment), and 11 percent of clients undergo abortions. Is it not likely that some of the same clients going to Planned Parenthood for contraception are returning for these other services when PPFA and contraception fail them? After all, 54 percent of women seeking abortions report they were using contraceptives in the month they became pregnant (see Table 61, p.98).

April 7, 2011


April 6, 2011 ( – Myths about Planned Parenthood are spreading like grassfire. Thanks to a perfect storm of events, the abortion provider is scrambling to cauterize the biggest PR hit it has ever sustained. November’s election of an overwhelmingly pro-life Congress, revelation of numerous violations by its staff and repeated calls for its defunding by social and fiscal conservatives alike have put Planned Parenthood’s lifeblood on the line.

Record Numbers of Babies Killed at Planned Parenthood


332,278 abortions – surgical and medical (pill) – in 2009.

340 abortions for every one adoption referral.

40% of PP income from abortions, which require more than one visit.

“Planned Parenthood bundles abortions making it appear as if abortions account for only 5% of its business.”—-Abby Johnson, a former director of a Planned Parenthood facility in Texas and author of “UNPlanned” interviewed on EWTN “World Over Live” February 24, 2011 (begins at 08:00 minutes from start).

Planned Parenthood Sets Record for Number of Babies Killed

Washington, DC (23 February 2011) – Planned Parenthood Federation of America recently posted on its web site its so-called service numbers for 2009. This document, dated February 2011, shows that Planned Parenthood committed 332,278 surgical and medical abortions in 2009—more than in any previous year.

The document also shows that Planned Parenthood provided prenatal services to merely 7,021 women and referred 977 for adoption services. These numbers were a 25 percent drop in prenatal care clients and a whopping 59 percent decline in adoption referrals.

“Despite its protestations that abortion is only a small part of its services,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, “Planned Parenthood has increased its number of abortions for 15 straight years. During that time, it has gone from committing 9.3 percent of all abortions in the United States to committing 27.5 percent.”

Sedlak also noted that Planned Parenthood now does 340 abortions for every one adoption referral and 47 abortions for every one prenatal care client.

“The records show that Planned Parenthood has committed 5,320,095 surgical and medical abortions from 1970 through the end of 2009,” Sedlak continued.

“We estimate that the income from abortion accounts for 40 percent of its annual clinic income.”

In the last year it has been revealed by Abby Johnson, former PP clinic director in Bryan, Texas, that Planned Parenthood was pressuring her to do more and more abortions because PP makes more money from abortions than any other single service. It was also revealed by Planned Parenthood’s affiliate in Corpus Christi, Texas, that the national office is demanding that every affiliate must have at least one facility that commits abortion.

“When all the current numbers are taken together with the revelations from PP’s own former employees,” Sedlak concluded, “it is clear that Planned Parenthood is about killing human beings in the womb for a profit. It is an absolute outrage that American taxpayers have been funding such a group and we ask all members of Congress to take steps now to end this funding.”


American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.  For more information or press inquiries, please contact Katie Walker at 540.659.4942.

Dr. Bernard Nathanson remembered for his profound pro-life conversion :: Catholic News Agency

Although critics of Nathanson’s conversion were  perplexed as to how a former atheist Jew became of the the most prominent Catholic pro-life advocates, Fr. McCloskey – who has aided in numerous conversions – said he wasn’t surprised.

“My experience in dealing with Jewish people whom I love dearly is that, the great majority of them, if they want to become Christian, they become Catholic.”

Fr. McCloskey added: “I think his conversion from atheism to Catholicism will be seen as a real turning point in our history.”

Slaughterhouse Live: Abortionist Gosnell

Slaughterhouse Live | Population Research Institute.

By Steven Mosher


How did Gosnell get away with such horrors for decades on end? The grand jury states that several Pennsylvania agencies share the blame.

First, the State Health Department stopped inspecting abortion facilities 15 years ago following the election of Governor Tom Ridge. As Brad Mattes has noted, “The politics of a pro-abortion governor put an end to inspections. Abortion mills got a free pass.”

Even a cursory inspection would have revealed that Gosnell’s own patient records contained enough evidence to convict him of performing illegal late-term abortions. But nobody bothered to check.

Second, the Department of State ignored dozens of complaints from women, relatives, and former employees about Gosnell’s behavior. The department could not bring itself to take action even when a whistle blower—a former employee of Gosnell—came to it and “laid out the whole scope of his operation.”

Gosnell should have been stripped of his license to practice medicine years ago. Instead he was allowed to continue to kill babies and mutilate women.

Third, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health failed to enforce its own regulations. The department knew that he was in violation of local health regulations. They knew that he had no medical waste plan. They could hardly not have known, since one of Gosnell’s own employees complained to them that aborted babies were being stored in the same refrigerator that employees used to store their lunches.

They could have shut down Gosnell’s mill for any one of a number of violations. Instead they turned a blind eye.

Fourth, the local hospitals did not report—as legally required—the large number of complications that followed from Gosnell’s botched abortions. Local emergency room personnel had seen it all: patients with torn uteruses and perforated intestines; patients overdosed on pain medication; patients with baby body parts still inside of them.

But they protected Gosnell—and thus failed to protect his patients.

The grand jury report also faults the National Abortion Federation (NAF), whose representative described the small brick building on the corner of 38th and Lancaster in Pennsylvania as the worst facility she had ever seen. Yet she did nothing and told no one, confirming the suspicions of pro-lifers that the abortion industry is incapable of policing itself. To put it bluntly, if you are willing to kill babies for profit, what won’t you do?

Planned Parenthood President: Fewer People Saves Government Money

IN PLAIN ENGLISH — We at Pro-Life Action of Oregon have waited for the day when the pro-abortion activists will just speak in plain English.  We’ve known all along that the goal of Planned Parenthood and its founder, Margaret Sanger, and her grandson, Alexander Sanger, is population control.  It is also known as soft eugenics.  Reminder:  we vehemently disagree that birth control and abortion — “reproductive rights” of the radical feminists — constitute “health care” for women and their unborn children.

Planned Parenthood President: Fewer People Saves Government Money |

Steve Ertelt.  Oct. 26, 2010 – The president of Planned Parenthood appeared on the Bill Press radio show today with an unconventional way for the government to save money.

By sending more taxpayer dollars to the abortion business to pay for birth control, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards contends the government would save money in the long run because fewer people would be born.

Presumably, Richards believes the more people who are born the more people will need the support of government programs and services — ignoring the contribution people make to society.

“I think it’s important, Bill, to understand that unlike some other issues of cost, birth control is one of those issues that actually saves the government money,” said Richards, according to Lifesite.  “So an investment in covering birth control actually in the long run is a huge cost savings because women don’t have children that they weren’t planning on having and all the sort of attendant cost for unplanned pregnancy.”

“So we actually feel that covering birth control is not only it’s the right thing to do for women, it’s good for women it’s good for their health care, but it’s frankly good public policy,” Richards added.

The abortion business president appeared on the program to tout its campaign to lobby the Obama administration to call birth control “preventative care” and qualify itself for millions more in taxpayer funds from the federal government.

Islamic Terrorism and Fertility

The fertility rates of Muslim countries are falling.  Iran’s mullahs instituted sterilization, family planning programs.

Islamic Terrorism and Fertility

The demographic sophisticates who read this column know that the population bomb has fizzled, that the world’s population will never double again, and that birthrates are falling faster and farther than anyone imagined a half century ago.

But they also know that there are still pockets of moderately high fertility in the world, including a number of Muslim countries, and some wonder if such places could be breeding grounds (forgive the expression) for Islamic terrorism.  I know they wonder, because every time I give a population talk someone in the audience raises the question of whether Islamic fertility contributes to Islamic fanaticism.

They are not alone.  Many security experts, like Clinton’s Deputy National Security Advisor Samuel Huntington, have long believed that “excessive” population growth in Muslim countries is a national security threat to the West.  They argue that large cohorts of young people radicalize their societies, contribute to civil unrest and cross-border conflicts and, most importantly for us, provide an endless supply of new recruits for terrorist training camps.

De-population and De-Christianization Leading to Cultural Islamic Jihad

We agree with Mr. de Souza’s solution of Christian reunification.  Excerpts:

De-population and De-Christianization Leading to Cultural Islamic Jihad: Catholic Apologist

By Hilary White

ROME, October 12, 2010 ( – The de-Christianization of Europe, the “removal of Christian principles and institutions from the daily life of a country,” has created a religious and social vacuum that is being filled by Islam, a prominent U.S. Catholic speaker said on Thursday. Raymond de Souza, the Program Director for Portuguese-speaking countries for Human Life International told an audience of the world’s pro-life and pro-family leaders that “Europe … is being culturally Islamized.”

The cause underlying this “silent Jihad,” he said, is the “most crucial aspect” of Europe’s de-Christianization – de-population. “Europeans do not even replace their countries populations.”

“As one Moslem mullah said to an Anglican priest in London, ‘By the end of this century, all great English Cathedrals will be mosques. Why? Because we have children, and you don’t’.

“Contraception promised a freedom without responsibility, abortion promises the right to do one’s own thing with one’s own body, homosexual marriage promises respect for different orientations … result: the end of civilization as we knew it.”

De-Christianization, he said, is not a new phenomenon, but had its start “centuries ago” with the social, economic and philosophical upheavals that resulted in the Protestant Reformation.

De Souza, a professional Catholic apologist, said bluntly that the solution is the “reunification of all baptized Christians under ‘one Lord, one faith, one baptism’ in the one Church of God, the pillar and mainstay of the truth.”

Local CCHD Pulls Money from ‘Street Roots’ Paper

Pro-Life Action of Oregon is gratified that people of conscience will no longer be donating to the homeless newspaper, Street Roots.  The paper publishes a guidebook of community resourcesPlanned Parenthood is one of those resources, under ‘health care.’

Faced with losing $5,000, the paper opted to keep its Planned Parenthood listing, which includes street maps to its locations.  Now that is dedication to the Culture of Death if we ever saw it!

Street Roots’ action, therefore, is immoral!  They prefer to be “politically correct,”  siding with the Abortion Lobby rather than with Catholic social teachings which compel Catholics to feed and clothe the poor!  This is where the Left is abandoning the poor!

Pro-Life Action of Oregon reported on this controversy in December 2009, ‘Local CCHD Grantee Refers Homeless to Planned Parenthood.’

We thank Matt Cato, director of the Respect Life Office, for working on this.

Pro-lifers in Oregon will continue to work to turn the tide in favor of the Culture of Life and against those who support the largest abortion chain in the country.

We look forward to the day when Street Roots removes their promotion of Planned Parenthood from their guidebook.  It’s the simplest solution.  If they want Catholics in Oregon to donate they must disengage from the Culture of Death.

New Anti-Death Penalty Campaign, What About Abortion?

Catholic Network Starts New Anti-Death Penalty Campaign, What About Abortion?

By Deal Hudson


On January 29, the Catholic Mobilizing Network to End the Death Penalty (CMN) was launched. According to its executive director, Karen Clifton, the CMN was created “with the encouragement of the USCCB.”

. . . there’s no avoiding the fact that political arguments about the death penalty are going to play a role in the pro-life debate.

The “seamless garment” argument used by Clifton, of course, raises questions about what those connected with the Catholic Mobilizing Network will be saying about the pro-life position of politicians. As everyone knows too well, this version of Catholic social teaching has been used for more than four decades to provide cover for Catholic politicians who do not oppose abortion.

The stated purpose of Clifton’s organization is to “end the death penalty” by educating “the lay community through our courses on the Church’s teachings on the death penalty” and facilitating “respectful and informed discourse within the Catholic community and the community at large.”

These are all admirable goals, but the obvious caveat is how the effort of CMN will result in applying the pro-life label to politicians who support abortion but oppose the death penalty.

This kind of misapplied moral equivalency was the hallmark of the Catholic effort for Obama during the campaign.

Any arguments about the sanctity of life, after all, make no sense if they don’t arise from the obligation of protecting the not-yet-born.

Louisiana Governor Signs Bill Allowing Women to See Ultrasound Before Abortion

Louisiana Governor Signs Bill Allowing Women to See Ultrasound Before Abortion

Michigan Bishop Withholds CCHD Funds

10 bishops, representing over 5% of U.S. dioceses, have decided to no longer take up the collection due to concerns about CCHD’s funding practices.  A number of others have made public calls for CCHD’s reform.

Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska, told LifeSiteNews in November that he questions CCHD’s “ideology.” He said he would not offer the collection in his diocese until there were “some changes in the organization itself, or its purposes, or its goals.”

Michigan Bishop Withholds CCHD Funds

GAYLORD, Michigan, June 17, 2010 ( – Another United States bishop is taking precautions in light of continuing allegations that the U.S. bishops’ domestic anti-poverty arm, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), is funding groups that support abortion and other activities contrary to Catholic teaching.

Bishop Bernard Hebda of Gaylord, Michigan has decided to delay sending funds to CCHD from the 2010 collection while the organization is under review, LifeSiteNews has learned.

Candace Neff, communications director for the Gaylord diocese, emphasized that the bishop has not “discontinued” the collection for CCHD.  “A tremendous amount of very important work is accomplished through the Catholic Campaign for Human Development,” she said.

She explained that unlike other dioceses, Gaylord rolls many of the annual special collections, including the one for CCHD, into one large Catholic Services Appeal that takes place in the spring.  In most U.S. dioceses, the special collection for CCHD is taken up in November.

“After consulting with a number of advisors Bishop Hebda has decided that for this year (2010), while CCHD’s systems are under review, a donation will not automatically be sent to CCHD from funds donated through the Diocese of Gaylord’s Catholic Services Appeal Campaign,” she said.

Striking courage at Planned

Parenthood in Houston – video

STOPP received an e-mail and video link from our friend Steve in Houston concerning developments at the ribbon cutting of the Planned Parenthood mega-abortion facility in Houston. Here is what Steve had to say:

Sometimes we’re surprised at what ends up being an inspiring moment outside of Planned Parenthood. On May 20th it was a waiter wearing a black bow tie that faced a moment of decision in his life. Normally these moments are not caught on tape and only God is witness to them, but they’re happening every day across America at abortion clinics in every state of the union.

Local pro-lifers were fortunate to capture this moment where one man had the courage to stand up against the tyranny of abortion, even if it meant losing his job.

Women Who Refuse Abortion At Risk

Report on Coerced Abortions

Women Who Refuse Abortion At Risk of Coercion,
Discrimination, Violence and Even Death

Springfield, IL (May 20, 2010) – An updated report released by the Elliot Institute is drawing attention to attacks on pregnant women and girls — some of them deadly — in order to prevent them from continuing their pregnancies.

The Forced Abortion in America report also exposes the widespread epidemic of unwanted, coerced and forced abortions taking place in the U.S.

Indeed, research suggests that most abortions are unwanted or coerced, with one survey of women who had abortions finding that 64 percent said they felt pressured by others to abort and nearly 80 percent said they did not receive the counseling they needed to make a decision — even though more than half said they felt rushed or uncertain about the abortion.

Contraception—the Bitter Pill

Contraception—the Bitter Pill

by George Sim Johnston.  Crisis Magazine.  1996.

The Church’s insistence on the link between contraception and abortion occasionally gets support in surprising quarters. In Planned Parenthood v. Casey the U.S. Supreme Court, on its perennial search for the most plausible-sounding sophistries to uphold legalized abortion, stated:

For two decades of economic and social developments, people have organized intimate relationships and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society, in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail.

In other words, we need abortion so that people can continue their contraceptive lifestyles.

Our Position on Contraception

Updated 9:03 a.m., 04/14/10

Why was Pro-Life Action of Oregon’s “Contraception” Material Banned from Oregon Right To Life’s Conference?

Our position, and that of Judie Brown, president, American Life League, on the connection between the use of abortion pills and the rate of abortion has been rejected by Gayle Atteberry, director, Oregon Right To Life.  But that position is also the party line of National Right To Life.

Atteberry banned our educational material on the contraception-abortion connection from the upcoming ORTL conference.  Rather than compromise our beliefs we won’t be participating in the conference.

Silence on birth control’s role in abortion rates will continue to mislead and misinform pro-lifers.  More babies will die.


Pro-Life Action of Oregon requested a table at the upcoming ORTL 2010 pro-life conference.  Atteberry asked to review our educational material (from American Life League) due to ORTL “policies” about ALL.

She banned them all.

Which material did she censor?  Anything about contraception!

  • Contraception and Abortion:  The Deadly Connection
  • Emergency Contraception
  • Birth Control Pills:  How They Work
  • Flawed Condoms

Each of these are available for viewing at the American Life League store.

Atteberry characterized these as “minutia.”

“As I see it, Judie Brown is focused on the minutia and ORTL does not agree with that.”

Updated 5:32 PDT 04-15-10
“Minutia?”!!!  According to the Guttmacher Institute, 54% of women who abort their babies were using The Pill or condoms during the month they became pregnant.  Of those, 76% were using The Pill — “inconsistently.”
Open Letter to Gayle Atteberry, Oregon Right To Life
April 13, 2010 – Portland, Ore

Gayle, in light of your censoring American Life League (ALL) material which makes the connection between contraception and abortion — material I wanted to bring to the April Oregon Right To Life conference — Pro-Life Action of Oregon will not be participating.

Our Position On Contraception

We are  very grateful that you took the time to inform us of Oregon Right To Life’s policies which illustrate the philosophical and theological differences between National Right To Life / ORTL and Judie Brown/A.L.L.  You expressed being uncomfortable with Brown’s criticisms of NRLC.  Your characterization of her criticisms is as follows:

A.L.L. puts a great emphasis in opposing birth control. While it is true that some birth control methods are abortifacients, not all are. Judy Brown adamantly opposes the birth control pill. While sometimes the bc [birth control] pill acts as an abortifacient, it does not always work that way, and many pro-life doctors say there is no proof that it does.

It is obvious that your assessment of Judie’s opposition to The Pill is restricted to its abortifacient action.

We are  aware of its abortifacient action.  Yet, we are struck by your silence on its rate of failure which leads to “unplanned” pregnancies.

As a serious pro-life activist, we are  in total 100% agreement with Judie Brown.  The Pill increases abortion.

The History of  Legalized Abortion Begins With Legalized Contraceptives – PART ONE

“How Abortion Became Legal”

From Choices in Matters of Life & Death by Judie Brown with Paul Brown

If we study the Supreme Court’s decisions and try to see when the Court began arbitrarily granting the right to kill, we have to go back to 1965 when the last of the so-called Comstock Laws or the old birth control laws in America was overturned.  [Margaret Sanger played a major role in the legalization of birth control.]

  • In Griswold v. Connecticut [1965], the Court created the “right to privacy.”
  • There never has been in the U.S. Constitution a right to privacy, but in 1965, to legalize all forms of birth control for married couples, the Court ruled that couples have a “right to privacy” and therefore the state has no compelling interest even in alerting them to the medical side effects of birth control.
  • This contrived “right to privacy” laid the groundwork for further anti-life actions by the Court. [Emphasis added.]

Justice Stewart agreed that the “right to privacy” was contrived and could not be found in the Constitution.  In his dissenting opinion in Griswold, he wrote:

“In the course of its opinion the Court refers to no less than six amendments to the Constitution:  The First, the Third, the Fourth, the Fifth, the Ninth and the 14th.  But the Court does not say which of these amendments, if any, it thinks is infringed by this Connecticut [birth control] law.

“What provision of the Constitution, then, does makes this [birth control] law invalid? The Courts says it is the right of privacy ‘created by several fundamental constitutional guarantees.’ With all deference, I can find no such general right of privacy in the Bill of Rights, in any other part of the Constitution, or in any case ever before decided by this Court.

“At the oral argument in this case we were told that the Connecticut [birth control] law does not ‘conform to current community standards.’  But it is not the function of this Court to decide cases on the basis of community standards. We are here to decide cases ‘agreeable to the Constitution and laws of the United States.’”—-Justice Stewart’s dissenting opinion in Griswold.

In 1972, in Eisenstadt v. Baird, the Supreme Court again referred to the “right to privacy,” ruling that contraceptives may be given to unmarried individuals, concluding that the “equal protection under the law” guaranteed by the Constitution confers the rights of married persons on the unmarried as well.

What the Court did in 1973 [Roe v. Wade] was simply to carry forward that right to privacy created in 1965 and legalize the killing of innocent preborn children.

Abortion Pills Questions and Answers

Pro-Life Action of Oregon is urging all activists in the Pro-Life Movement to become familiar with the abortion drugs Mifepristone, a.k.a., RU-486, and Mifeprostol.  This is important for sidewalk counseling.

The number of chemical abortions is on the rise and will continue to rise.

Did you know that . . .

  • more than one drug is used in the chemical abortion protocol?
  • providers of these drugs have been known to MISUSE or ABUSE these drugs  by advising patients to insert the pills vaginally?
  • these drugs are manufactured in CHINA?
  • Planned Parenthood claims that “only 2 out of 100 patients require a surgical abortion” due to drug failure?

Update, March 26, 2010

  • The FDA reports that … about 5 to 8 out of 100 women taking Mifeprex will need a surgical procedure to end the pregnancy or to stop too much bleeding.”  Emphasis added.

This an incomplete abortion.  But as usual will not use the word “baby.”

An “incomplete abortion” as defined by Planned Parenthood’s Glossary, means that some of the “pregnancy tissue”the growing baby — remains in the uterus.


Sepsis has caused the death of pregnant girls and women using these drugs.  The cause?  Deadly “Super Bugs,” bacteria that cannot be treated with known antibiotics.  We’ve provided links (below) to ongoing reports by the Food and Drug Administration  (FDA).

Despite these warnings, Planned Parenthood is stepping up its marketing of this alternative to “surgical abortion.”  The new PP on NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. only offers chemical abortionsfor now.

CEO David Greenberg has gone on record to state that their new location would offer a “state-of-the-art Surgicenter designed to increase access to abortion care in anticipation of continuing political challenges.”—-2005-06  Annual Report, Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette.


Pro-Life Action of Oregon urges all activists in the Pro-Life Movement to become familiar with the terminology of chemical abortions. Here are the various terms used for it:

  • Medical Abortion
  • Chemical Abortion
  • The Abortion Pill
  • RU-486 (this term is being phased out)
  • Mifeprex (brand name)
  • Mifepristone (generic)
  • Misoprostol – taken after Mifepristone
  • Incomplete Chemical Abortion – the growing baby remains in the uterus of the mother and requires a surgical abortion

MEDICAL ABORTION REGIMEN – According to the FDA, the approved Mifeprex regimen for a medical abortion through 49 day’s pregnancy is:

  • Day One:  Mifeprex Administration: 3 tablets of 200 mg of Mifeprex orally at once
  • Day Three:  Misoprostol Administration: 2 tablets of 200 mcg of misoprostol orally at once
  • Day 14:   Post-Treatment:   The patient must return to confirm that a complete termination has occurred.  If not, surgical termination is recommended to manage medical abortion treatment failures.

The FDA continues to track adverse events, i.e., deaths, caused by the drugs.

Day Gardner calls on blacks to recognize impact of abortion during Black History Month

Day Gardner calls on blacks to recognize impact of abortion during Black History Month :: Catholic News Agency (CNA).

.- Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union has said that during Black History Month Americans should acknowledge abortion’s disproportionate impact on blacks and should see abortion advocacy as a form of “ethnic cleansing” that targets the black community. “Abortion providers are still being located for the most part in black neighborhoods and are still delivering the same old message,” Gardner said, claiming their message is that black, poor urban children are “not worthy of life” and that America would “be a better place without black people.”

Writing in a Tuesday commentary, she recounted the history of black oppression at the hands of groups like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

“The Klan’s aim was to prevent African-Americans from voting, getting an education, competing for jobs and owning property,” she explained.

While the KKK conducted a “lynching war” on blacks in the American South, Gardner charged that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and her allies were devising an “evil plan” to enforce what Sanger called “race hygiene.”

In a 1922 book the birth control activist called for the elimination of “human weeds,” the segregation of “morons, misfits and maladjusted” and for the sterilization of “genetically inferior races.” According to Gardner, Sanger associated with known racists and was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, New Jersey in 1926.

In 1939, Sanger launched the Negro Project. Gardner claimed this effort planned to “get rid of black people” by limiting their population growth with abortion and sterilization. She also charged that Sanger sought to use the clergy and charismatic members of the black community to advance her cause in a form of “ethnic cleansing.”

Gardner cited Sanger’s letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble in which she wrote:

“The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

The organization Sanger founded, Planned Parenthood, makes money by “killing children – especially black children,” Gardner charged. While the KKK killed about 3,500 people since its beginnings in 1865, Planned Parenthood is responsible for “more than 17 million black deaths since 1973.”
