"Defund PP" Politicians and Bills Typically FUND Abortion

Bills to Defund Planned Parenthood Typically Fund Abortion
Politicians Against PP Funding Give Record Funds to Abortion
Outrage Over Body Parts Videos Squandered by Defunding Efforts 

Lesson from Presidential History: Former president George W. Bush claimed to be against tax funding of abortion yet the Bush administration increased funding to Planned Parenthood by nearly a billion tax dollars over and above what Bill Clinton had been able to give them, and this was true even though for four years Bush and the Republicans had a historic monopoly on power with the trifecta of Republican control over the executive branch, and the legislative branch, and the U.S. Supreme Court. And G. W. Bush gave Planned Parenthood all that money even though it is fungible, and even though in a typical year 98% of Planned Parenthood's pregnancy "services" consist of abortion. Related: And like father, like brother: Just like Roe v. Wade was a Republican ruling, written by Republican Justice Harry Blackmun and passed by a Republican majority, so too, Republican George H.W. Bush initiated Title X funding, amounting to many millions of dollars per year, to Planned Parenthood. And until he started running for president, Jeb Bush sat on the board of a foundation that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood.

Lesson from Baby Body Parts Videos: With the public outrage over Planned Parenthood selling baby body parts, what should pro-lifers do now? Do we provide political cover for "pro-life" politicians and talk show hosts like FNC's Megan Kelly who can grandstand against harvesting body parts from "potential life" by urging them to call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood? Of course not. Instead, CRTL offers this response:

"With the viral body parts videos, America has run out of excuses. The abortion clinic says that they are merely removing tissue. But 'tissue' does not have a heart, lungs, arms and legs. Planned Parenthood is killing babies. Everyone knows that. And they're even selling the body parts. A baby is a person made in God's image so we must all fight to protect each child by love and by law."

Predictable "Defunding" Consequences: A typical bill that would "defund" abortion actually clarifies that it will fund the killing of the children of rapists, and it will fund ALL abortions, performed for any reason, where the baby is killed in a hospital. (See the recent Republican defunding bill from Rep. Pence just below.) The predictable consequences of a typical "defund abortion" political ploy include that:

  • claimed rapes in the U.S. will skyrocket
  • claimed life-threatening pregnancies will skyrocket, as certified by pro-abortion physicians who flaunt the law and abortionists who have always refused to comply even with mandatory reporting for child sexual abuse, with abortion reporting laws, etc.
  • many unintended consequences will occur, not unlike with G. W. Bush whose campaigning opposition to tax-funded abortion led to an explosion of abortion industry funding of more than one billion dollars under the Bush administration
  • respectable hospitals, ever in need of funds, will receive a windfall of revenue from a new-found abortion market and these institutions will become increasingly invested in the maturing and long-term stability of the billion-dollar abortion industry
  • pro-choice politicians will get continued political cover from the Republican party enabling them to claim support for defunding Planned Parenthood, while all the while, like Fox News Channel's Megan Kelly, they reject the right to life of the unborn child.

Lesson from Congressional History: Indiana's Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Pence's 2011 H.R. 217 bill explicitly allows funding of ALL ABORTIONS DONE FOR ANY REASON at hospitals, and also explicitly allows funding of the killing of some children in order to defund the killing of others. H.R. 217:

Title X, Section 1009U.S. Rep. Mike Pence
   (b) does not apply with respect to an abortion where --
      (1) the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape, or...
      (2) ...life-threatening physical condition...
   (c) does not apply with respect to a hospital...

Note: See American RTL exposing the traitorous Exceptions for Rape and Exceptions for Life that Planned Parenthood used to start the abortion holocaust itself, and which the pro-life industry andNational RTL have adopted as their own, which effectively prohibit any ultimate victory.

Mike Pence is not unlike George W. Bush, who gets credit for "opposing" embryonic research when in reality Bush became the first president to fund embryonic stem cell research and he never fought to end the fatal experimentsPence praised George W. Bush when introducing him at a 2010 Indianapolis pregnancy center fundraiser while overlooking the president's tragic abortion legacy (see alternative event flyer), covering for the president who gave Planned Parenthood over a billion dollars. Mike Pence, like G. W. Bush, is in a long line of ambitious politicians and fundraisers who campaign against tax-funded abortion despite the fact that they actually fund abortion. 

Rep. Pence should consider that no Christian should ever submit to the criminal who says shoot this child and we'll spare those children. And nor should any Christian defend any such abortion funding bill.

This is a teachable moment. When public outrage explodes, we should not squander that clarity with politically advantageous calls for defunding Planned Parenthood. We should step up our efforts to close down Planned Parenthood. It is not immoral to fight to defund the abortion industry; but more often than not it is a delay tactic, regarding the real goal, which should be to close down Planned Parenthood. Defunding is a slight of hand and a diversion (as with Fox News Channel's Megan Kelly who contemptibly and repeatedly refers to babies as "potential life") from what actually needs to be done: fighting for the right to life of the unborn child.

RegulationsR.us Begins ISIS Ad Campaign

DENVER, Summer 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- More than a dozen organizations along with www.RegulationsR.us have launched a social media campaign to urge the Islamic terrorist group ISIS to employ more humane forms of killing. A series of messages, each inspired by a specific piece of pro-life legislation, urges ISIS, for example, to use anesthetics prior to a beheading. For more info, click here or email, write or call us:

Ongoing: If you see a misguided "pro-life" child killing regulation being proposed, please make it a habit to post one of these ISIS Regulations memes to help people realize the immorality and absurdity of the effort to regulate murder. You can grab them from our page here at CRTL, or go to AmericanRTL.org/isis for a handy list of links. Thank you!

Rejecting the Supreme Court’s Opinion on Homosexual Marriage

We reject the court’s immoral and perverse opinion on homosexual marriage. The creator Jesus Christ said that God made us “male and female at the beginning of creation” and God instituted marriage between a man and a woman. All governing officials at every level of government should reject and ignore any and every attempt, whether legislative, by popular vote, or judicial, to redefine marriage. Likewise, all governing officials should reject Roe v. Wade and any and all other attempts to repeal God’s enduring command, Thou shall not murder.

"We just want to be left alone." Right. "In the public square, Christianity and homosexuality are mutually exclusive. One or the other will be in the closet", says Colorado Right To Life. A homosexual replied: "No really, we just want to be left alone. Oh yeah, and you better bake us a cake. Or else. Or a pizza pie. And cookies. And send us flowers. And you better give me a haircut while I'm waiting. And take some photos. Or else. And forget your heterosexual student clubs and dating services, and as for your teachings on morality, we've decided to ban them. Oh yeah, and did we tell you? You're going to print us some t-shirts and then host our wedding! Yup. Even on your church property. And we want a parade, and you're going to provide security too." And please note, as exposed by the Duggar crisis, contrast the media's visceral hatred of Christian families to their decades long tolerance of actual homosexual pedophiles.

The Daily Kill: Warren Hern 40 Years Later

* The Daily Camera: Boulder, Colorado, May 30, 2015: After 40 years in Boulder, abortion doctor Warren Hern is still at war. From this Alex Burness article:

Hern collects himself and, with cutting, dead-serious eyes, says, "You see why I hate these people? I hate them." He repeats that twice more under his breath.

"I hate them. I hate them."

'It's a civil war'

The feeling is quite mutual.

Bob Enyart... spokesman for Colorado Right to Life — roundly condemns the killing of abortion doctors and says there is "no justification" for their role in "the long war against God."

Even in cases of fetal anomaly, he says, "It's never a thorny issue whether to love a child.

"You don't love the child by killing it, and you don't love the mother by turning her into an accomplice," Enyart says. "Warren Hern is not motivated by a desire of freedom for the woman and her family. As with the left generally, his is a world view of killing the innocent and protecting the guilty."

The full Boulder Daily Camera story appears here. Bob provided the following to Burness, but this information did not make the cut:

* 1991 Flashback -- Pro-lifer Interviews Warren Hern: Nearly a quarter century ago, on July 3, 1991, late-term abortionist Warren Hern appeared as a guest on a Denver radio station on the pro-life radio program Bob Enyart Live. As then published in the Denver Catholic Register, the following dialogue on Denver radio's 50,000-watt AM 670 KLTT occurred between Mr. Enyart and nationally-known author of the Abortion Practice textbook, Boulder Colorado's late-term abortionist Warren Hern:

HERN: Abortion has to do with fundamental decisions people make about their lives... Of course the public debate is about who is going to make that decision. The individual or the state.

ENYART: So women and families should make the decisions, these life or death decisions?
HERN: Yes.

ENYART: Did you notice the news story this week; some doctors went to a judge to try and appoint a legal guardian for a woman who was in a coma? Her husband wanted to continue medical treatment.
HERN: Yes, I saw that.

ENYART: But the doctors wanted to cancel medical treatment.
HERN: Right.

ENYART: Would you have agreed with that judge, then, that no, those doctors didn't have a right to appoint a legal guardian?
HERN: No, I think the doctors were doing the right thing and I support the doctors' point of view although I'm not involved in that case and it has obviously nothing to do with abortion. But I think it's absurd to maintain someone on life support systems when they are not even functioning.

ENYART: So even though the family wanted to continue to medical care, you would have taken that decision away from the family?
HERN: Well, I think that is, a, I, I thought we going to be talking about abortion. This is really not a question I was prepared to discuss. It's clearly one in which I have interest in, and it relevant, but why don't we stick to abortion.

This transcript, first published statewide in the Denver Catholic Register, alerted a hundred thousand families to the truth that abortionist Warren Hern unwittingly admitted: that it is people like him who should decide who should live and who should die. The pro-abortion American Bar Association summarized the case as "the first attempt in the nation to wrest control of a patient's fate out of the family's hands." Oliver Wanglie wanted to continue care for his 87-year old wife Helga, as did their two children and other doctors at the same hospital, yet they were dragged into court by two Minneapolis doctors and the hospital that was trying to get the state to overrule the family. This case illustrates the deception of abortion and euthanasia advocates who claim to believe that these "life and death decisions" are for the family and individuals to make, when in reality, they will urge the state to come down against the family on the side of killing the innocent.

The family should be overruled by the government imposing the euthanasia and abortion industry's decision to euthanize (or abort) the innocent, including our own loved ones. This is the actual belief system of this nationally-known abortionist. By claiming to be "pro-choice," he is a liar. The entire Planned Parenthood organization, by extension and evidence, also lies about its own position. The abortion industry's lack of action against, and even arguably its funding of, China's forced-abortion program proves that Planned Parenthood itself is not even "pro-choice" but simply pro-death. Abortionist Warren Hern violates even his own immoral standard, and would usurp the family's supposed right, and give that power to the government, to "make that decision" regarding life and death. The truth is that the abortion and euthanasia leaders believe "unwanted" human beings should die. The family's desire is irrelevant to them, unless it coincides with their own desire to kill the innocent.

Repub. Senate Pres. Bill Cadman Should Stop Affirming Abortion

For immediate release:

Colorado RTL Urging Republican Senate President Cadman
Not to Reaffirm Abortion in Moment of Crisis

Denver, 3/31/15 -- Colorado Republican Bill Cadman is opposing efforts to pass a Fetal Homicide bill that is abortion neutral. The Senate president is unwittingly making a horrific moment even worse. "The unconscionable crime against Michelle Wilkins and her baby Aurora in no conceivable way justifies Cadman's plan," said CRTL president Biff Gore, "which would mar new legislation by using it to reaffirm abortion."

While the abortion industry opposes any kind of fetal homicide legislation, Sen. Cadman is playing into Planned Parenthood's hands by using his office to affirm their core business. Alternative legislation, appearing in full just below, has previously passed the Republican-controlled House. This single-sentence bill is abortion neutral because, unlike other states' laws, it authorizes homicide charges while neither addressing nor affirming abortion.

"If the commission of any crime in this Title [18 of the Colorado Criminal Code] or Title 42 of the Colorado Revised Statutes is the proximate cause of death or injury to an unborn member of the species Homo sapiens, the respective homicide and assault charges for that death or injury may be brought contemporaneously with the underlying charges."

"We ask Senate President Bill Cadman to reverse course," said CRTL vice president Susan Sutherland, "and to oppose any effort to explicitly exempt some killing of unborn children. Colorado deserves fetal homicide legislation not bogged down in abortion politics."

Please Help: Please contact Republican state legislators, initially especially the senators at 720-432-3467, and ask them to introduce a fetal homicide bill that does not reaffirm abortion.
