Time to defund Planned Parenthood

When I first ran for office, I stated clearly, whether I was knocking on doors or at a speaking engagement that “the value we place on life and our families determines what type of society we will want for ourselves and the next generation.”

I believed that then and feel it even stronger today.  Thomas Jefferson, one of our great founding fathers stated that “the care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only object of good government.”   How do we as a society today reconcile these strongly held beliefs with what’s going on with Planned Parenthood?

Fifty million children have been murdered since Roe vs. Wade – more than all of our wars combined.  Now we have the revelations coming out that the organization Planned Parenthood has been selling aborted baby body parts.  It is “barbaric” for any society to condone this atrocity and even more reprehensible to have presidential candidates, like Hilary Clinton, support this type of organization.

You always hear the same old “tired lies” from liberal progressives and their media outlets saying that “Planned Parenthood provides health care services to the poor, checkups, mammograms, cervical cancer visits and contraceptives” –  all in the name of “reproductive health” – but they couldn’t be more disingenuous and insincere.  Almost 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does is abortion.

What’s even more hypocritical is that they have access to hundreds of millions of your federal taxpayer dollars to carry on their operations.

Folks, you might not be aware, but this discussion about the selling of body parts of aborted babies is nothing new.  National Right to Life has reported that Planned Parenthood has been selling body parts from aborted babies for 15 years and a majority of those come from partial birth abortions.

Wouldn’t you agree it’s well past time to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood for this type of “savagery”?  I don’t want my federal tax dollars going to this type of organization – nor do you.  It would also be helpful for Planned Parenthood to stop being so deceitful and untruthful by saying they are “serving the minority community.”  That’s proverbial “hogwash.”

Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. said “that 75 percent of all abortion clinics are in high minority population areas.”  She states clearly, ”You don’t serve the poor by taking money to terminate their children.” Her Uncle stated, “How can the ‘dream’ survive if we murder the children…every aborted baby in the womb is a slave to his or her mother?”

It’s time for America to wake up, stop this genocide and defund Planned Parenthood.  Mother Theresa, who worked with poorest of the poor said, “the greatest destroyer of peace is abortion…because if a mother can kill her own child… what is left? For me to kill you or you to kill me?”

Is this what our society has come to – “harvesting baby parts”?  We as concerned, compassionate Oklahomans have a moral obligation to rebuke the ridiculous arguments from the “pro-choice” crowd who constantly defend the practices of Planned Parenthood.

I love the comment Ronald Reagan made on Sept 22, 1980, in the New York Times when he said, ”I’ve noticed that those who are for abortion have already been born.”

Words to live by.

Let’s defund Planned Parenthood immediately and protect life at its most vulnerable stage.

I am afraid if we don’t start standing up as a people, we will surely not have a society that’s fit to live in.  We all need to read the Bible passage in Luke 1:39-45 when we think about presence of life at conception and place intrinsic value on the sanctity of life of the unborn.
