do you consider using the fetal tissue for research, the developement of vaccines and cures to be just as morally bankrupt? do you consider it just
as morally bankrupt when after you get bitten by a rabid animal you go to the doctors for a series of vaccines against rabies?
There's been investigation after investigation, on both the federal and state levels... There has been no evidence found that they weren't doing any
more than just being compensated for the cost of the donations...
heck one planned parenthood wasn't even being compensated for it!
Every contract that CMP presented to a planned parenthood clinic was rejected because what they were proposing would have been illegal. Seems to me
that if anyone was trying to be involved in the illegal transfer of fetal tissue, it was CMP! By presenting the illegal contracts, by using
fraudulent drivers licenses, by sending out fake advertisements on behalf of a fake company, that they presented to the government as being something
that is wasn't, by signing confidentiality agreements that they had no intention of keeping, by illegally filming people without their consents....
gee, I wonder, have I missed anything???
Yes, parts of planned parenthood services being offered are abortions. Abortions are legal in the US, and sometimes they are medically necessary.
Not tax dollars are paid for these abortions. Most of the money that they get from the gov't is through the medicaid programs, which will only pay
for an abortion that is medically necessary or maybe caused by rape.
Yes the CEO of planned parenthood makes alot of money. But the ceo of one of the largest chains of christian controlled hospitals makes two or three
times the amount she does, and they get medicaid reimbursements also.
No, planned parenthood doesn't do mammograms... but these christian hospitals, well, they won't do tubal litigations unless practically forced to by
the courts, which seldom happens. Not even if you are a cancer patient with the doctor's explanation as to why it's important to do it while the
mother is undergoing the c-section to deliver the baby instead of having a second operation to do it. They might make the mother to be lie in agony
when that pregnacy goes south and there's an infections, waiting for the fetal heart to stop before making any move to help the women, and thus, risk
the mom's health and well being. And, they won't prescribe birth control. Where, ya there might just might be an alternative for the patient of
planned parenthood. these hospitals might be the only one around for over a hundred miles...
and they still get medicaid reimbursements!
So, since appearently, planned parenthood can provide free care to the poor of this country, since their ceo makes so much money...then I guess all
these christian supported hospitals can also?
And since planned parenthood should be defunded because they don't do mammograms, then surely these hospitals should be, because they don't provide
alot of care, even when mom's life might depend on it.
oh it all boils down to the fact that planned parenthood provides low cost abortions and birth control to the lower classes?? Birth control reduces
the need for abortions, sometimes pregnancy itself is known to risk the mother's life and health even before the pregnancy occurs.... Abortions are
also sometimes necessary and well, THEY ARE LEGAL!! Regardless of what you do with planned parenthood, the higher classes will still have their
abortions....QUITE LEGALLY...they will still get their birth control... but well, the lower classes, the ones who can't really afford a half dozen
kids or more that will be affected. and then the same people who are griping about planned parenthood will be griping about all those gov't programs
that are working overtime to feed all those kids!!!
Stem express gave the number of clinics that were donating tissue to them, it was far more than the number of clinics that planned parenthood had
participating in fetal donations. So, stem express would still keep the bulk of their fetal donations even if planned parenthood went out of business
Morally bankrupt and perverted? No.... Logical, and well informed...yes...
take a look back in the past, before there was birth control readily available, to the time when some women were having three, four, five or more
abortions in their lifetime, when the kids were street urchins or placed in workhouses, or state institutions, when infantcide (even in those
workhouses and state insitutions) was rampant. We don't have that level of proverty now, we don't have as many abortions now, we don't have as many
mothers dying in childbirth, and we don't have that many babies being just out right killed!
