Planned Parenthood Unable To Account For Over $1 Billion In Taxpayer Funding

Planned Parenthood does not have a good track record at all and it just got worse. $1.3 billion worse. The organization that deliberately covers up cases of statutory rape is now under scrutiny for losing $1.3 billion in taxpayer dollars.

Planned Parenthood had been the recipient of over $2 billion from the Federal Government, but an audit by the General Accounting Office can only account for a little over $6 million of that. Where did the rest of the money go?

From the Washington Times:

A new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on federal tax money funneled into Planned Parenthood and similar organizations raises more questions than it answers about the nation’s largest abortion chain.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s (PPFA) audits show the organization spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but the abortion behemoth’s own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.

That’s not pocket change. Why the discrepancy?

Yes. That is a good question, one that the CEO of PP should be made to answer, preferably in front of a Congressional panel with the C-SPAN cameras running.

More:

Someone, then, needs to explain to all those people why $2.3 billion in tax dollars have been doled out to an organization that admits to systematically having killed more than 1.8 million pre-born babies between 2002 and 2008 and then reports it only spent $657.1 million in federal dollars.

Has Planned Parenthood managed to tuck away megamillions of our tax dollars, seemingly unnoticed? Or is that much of its government funding coming from sources other than the federal government? Or is there a problem with the way Planned Parenthood is reporting its expenditure of our federal monies?

In just two weeks, Planned Parenthood will complete its 2009-10 fiscal year. Yet it still has not released its annual report for its 2008-09 fiscal year. In light of the discrepancy revealed in this GAO report, we must ask: What is Planned Parenthood trying to keep secret?

And as a futher question, we must ask why the leftists and other pro-abortion people are so silent on this issue. After all, if a pro-life group suddenly couldn’t account for $1.3 billion in taxpayer funds, the pro-abortion lobby would be demanding someone’s head on a platter.

Majority Of Americans Now Identify Themselves As ‘Pro-Life’

Looks like the Culture of Life is winning out over the pro-abortionists. 51% of Americans now consider themselves to be pro-life while only 42% call themselves pro-abortion.

From the Associated Press:

The Gallup Poll reported Friday that 51 percent of Americans now call themselves “pro-life” rather than “pro-choice” on the issue of abortion, the first time a majority gave that answer in the 15 years that Gallup has asked the question.

The findings, obtained in an annual survey on values and beliefs conducted May 7-10, marked a significant shift from a year ago. A year ago, 50 percent said they were pro-choice and 44 percent pro-life — in the new poll, 42 percent said they were pro-choice.

The new survey showed that Americans remained deeply divided on the legality of abortion — with 23 percent saying it should be illegal in all circumstances, 22 percent saying it should be legal under any circumstances, and 53 percent saying it should be legal only under certain circumstances.

People are beginning to realize that abortion as a means of birth control is reprehensible and that responsible personal decisions before a pregnancy occurs are the policies that would best suit our younger generation.

I am happy to be a member of the Culture of Life and will never sway from my convictions.

New Obama Rule Would Force Pro-Life Doctors To Perform Abortions

So, where are Doug Kmiec and Chris Buckley now? They were pretty vocal about their “conservatives who support Obama” mantra back during the campaign. They especially liked the attention they recieved as a result.

But now, for some reason, these two are very silent when it comes to the issues that they were certain they had nailed down. Doug Kmiec was convinced that Obama would respect the views of the pro-lifers that Kmiec got to vote for Obama.

Kmiec was nothing more than a useful idiot to Obama since Obama has shown nothing but disdain for and disrespect to pro-lifers whom Kmiec convinced would find a new, elevated status if they voted Democrat last November. How so? Obama’s latest proposed rule change would force pro-life medical professionals into performing procedures they find morally objectionable.

Tonight at 9:00 p.m., the Andrea King Show will have Dr. Joe DeCook, Vice President of AAPLOG, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Here is what he has to say:

“The administration’s new efforts to overturn the HHS regulation could mandate practices such as abortion or shut down many of the 557 Catholic hospitals around the country that treat millions of US hospital patients.

“Revoking the regulation is the first step in removing a doctor of his or her rights to make a decision based on conscience and as a result placing that decision in the hands of the government. This issue will not only effect faith-based institutions, but could cause a dire situation for the entire medical profession.”

Of course. You can’t have government-run health care if doctors are free to make their own decisions independent of government influence.

The Obama administration has opened the HHS regulation – also known as “conscience clause” – for public comment until April 9, 2009.

I’d like to know where Doug Kmiec stands on this issue and if he still stands by his assertion that Obama would somehow be good for the pro-life movement.

Video Shows Third Planned Parenthood Clinic Hiding The Rape Of A Teenager

They say that the third time is the charm. Let’s hope so for the sake of future generations.

Lila Rose, leader of the Mona Lisa Project, released another video of another Planned Parenthood clinic breaking the law and hiding the sexual abuse of a 15-year-old. This time is happened in Tucson, Arizona. The first two videos were shot in Indianapolis, Indiana.

SECOND Planned Parenthood Hides Rape Of 13-Year-Old Girl

December 17, 2008

LiveAction.org released this statement back on February 3, 2009:

New hidden-camera footage from Tucson, AZ, implicates a third Planned Parenthood clinic in a multi-state child abuse scandal. In the video, UCLA student Lila Rose and her friend Jackie Stollar enter a Tucson Planned Parenthood clinic where Rose tells the nurse that Stollar, posing as a 15-year-old, is pregnant by her 27-year-old boyfriend. The nurse disregards the age difference and even cautions Stollar not to bring her “boyfriend” before the judicial hearing required in Arizona to waive parental consent for an abortion.

This negligence is punishable under Arizona law.

Why would Arizona consider this “negligence?” Read on:

This is not the first time Planned Parenthood of Arizona has failed to report sexual abuse. In 2002, an Arizona judge found the abortion provider negligent for failing to report the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl by her 23-year-old foster brother, who brought her to a Phoenix-area clinic for an abortion in 1998. After Planned Parenthood kept silent about the abuse, the sexual relationship continued and led to a second abortion six months later.

“Our footage gives the Arizona public and law enforcement a rare window into Planned Parenthood’s careless abortion-first ideology,” Rose stated. “With abortion as their first and only solution for the abused victim, Planned Parenthood assists sexual predators by violating the very Arizona state laws that protect children.”

How sick does an organization have to be that it lets child molesters go to molest again?

Pope Benedict XVI Reveals Nancy Pelosi’s Dishonesty With One Press Release

George Weigel asks: “Were they at the same meeting?” After reading the competing press releases, I wondered that myself. Nancy Pelosi travelled to Rome after voting to load a huge debt on our children and grandchildren and visited with Holy Father. Both Pelosi and Benedict XVI released statements about the meeting, but you would never guess that both releases were referring to the same get-together.

First, Holy Father’s press release:

Following the General Audience, the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage. His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception until natural death, which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists, and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of development.

The Holy See of Rome has always been a loggerheads with the Democrats over their support for abortion and their support of abortion groups that have blatently anti-Catholic agendas. So, this press release does not surpise me and, in fact, I welcome it. I’m glad to see that there are still people in this world who are willing to stand up to pro-abortionists like Pelosi and say what needs to be said.

Now, here is Pelosi’s version:

It is with great joy that my husband, Paul, and I met with His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, today. In our conversation, I had the opportunity to praise the Church’s leadership in fighting poverty, hunger, and global warming, as well as the Holy Father’s dedication to religious freedom and his upcoming trip and message to Israel. I was proud to show His Holiness a photograph of my family’s papal visit in the 1950s, as well as a recent picture of our children and grandchildren.

You’ll notice that Pelosi took the opportunity to make politcal hay out of issues that the Dems typically make their money off of. But she made no mention of the issues that Holy Father made public about this meeting.

Clearly, Pelosi was making this trip, not to re-affirm herself as a Catholic (she is a Catholic in name only and routinely leads Democrat assaults against the Catholic Church), but more to try and cover up her embarrassment from when she and Joe Biden misrepresented Catholic Church doctrine.

Also of note is the fact that Holy Father did not allow any photographs of the meeting (if any were even taken) to be released. That should clearly show how offended the Holy See is at Pelosi’s arrogant chicanery.

Planned Parenthood CEO Makes $1 Million Per Year

Our socialist president and his socialist allies in Congress have adopted the Marxist policiy of limiting how much money the CEOs of banks that receive Federal money can make per year. But, it shows that they have a double-standard when it comes to their political allies.

Corporate America has one set of very high standards applied (Like the bank CEOs) but anyone who espouses the leftist ideology of Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid gets a much lower set of standards.

For example, Planned Parenthood, the abortion mill outfit that seeks to hide the rapes of 13-year-old girls, gets federal money just like the banking industry. But, the CEO of PP gets to make $1 million per year and has no limits put on his compensation.

From VirtueOnline:

Readers may be surprised to learn that Planned Parenthood nationally has plenty of money and taxpayers are contributing a large part of it. According to its own 2006-07 annual report, Planned Parenthood took in more than a billion dollars, and boasted a surplus of $80 million. One-third of its income–$336 million-came from government subsidies. Its president received about $1 million in compensation. Why pay more of our own money for practices that don’t work and some of which involve what most Americans consider to be immoral?

If PP gets one-third of their fundng from American tax dollars, shouldn’t their executives face the same compensations limits that are being applied to others that receive federal monies? That would be a fair application of a standard.

Once again, we can see exactly how hypocritical the Democrats are. One set of low standards for themselves and their allies, one set of very high standards for the rest of us.

Obama’s Radical Pro-Abortion Agenda Makes Doug Kmiec A Useful Idiot

Doug Kmiec’s name is going to come up over and over and over again during the next few months. Most notably because he somehow convinced himself and his followers that Barack Obama and the Democrats would make good on a promise to make abortion as rare as possible. Unfortunately, the actions of Obama and the applause he recieved from his fellow leftists shows that Kmiec and his ilk had simply been used to get votes and are now best described as “useful idiots.”

Sound harsh? I don’t think so. No more harsh than the Dems who so snidely sang “Hey, hey, goodbye” to President Bush at the inauguration of Obama. No, no more harsh than that.

Anyway, Obama’s first act of slapping Kmiec in the face was accomplished yesterday when he overturned the Mexico City Policy that forbade the use of federal funds for abortions overseas. Now, money that could be used to help Americans is being sent overseas to end the lives of unborn children and we taxpayers get to pay for it.

Above: Democrats applaud the policy of making U.S. taxpayers foot the bill so that foreign women can kill their unborn babies.

From Tom Strode of the Baptist Press:

Obama ordered the repeal of what has been dubbed the Mexico City Policy. The rule has prohibited international family planning organizations from receiving federal funds unless they agree not to perform or counsel for abortion or lobby in order to liberalize the pro-life policies of foreign governments.

Southern Baptist ethics leader Richard Land and other pro-life advocates decried Obama’s order.

“President Obama was the most radically pro-choice candidate of a major party in American history and pledged to Planned Parenthood that he would never back down on this issue,” Land said. “Unfortunately, his executive order overturning the Mexico City Policy may just be the first step in his fulfillment of that campaign pledge to his radical pro-abortion supporters.

“With his action today, American taxpayers’ money once again will be used in part to fund abortions that end the lives of our fellow human beings in other countries,” he said.

And Doug Kmiec convinced millions of pro-life Catholics that this wouldn’t happen, that Obama and the Dems would respect their pro-life positions.

Doug, you are most definitely a useful idiot.
