New Study Shows Anti-Choice Policies Leading to Widespread Arrests of and Forced Interventions on Pregnant Women

•A woman in Utah gave birth to twins. When one was stillborn, she was arrested and charged with criminal homicide based on the claim that her decision to delay cesarean surgery was the cause of the stillbirth.

•After a hearing that lasted less than a day, a court issued an order requiring a critically-ill pregnant woman in Washington, D.C. to undergo cesarean surgery over her objections. Neither she nor her baby survived.

•A judge in Ohio kept a woman imprisoned to prevent her from having an abortion.

•A woman in Oregon who did not comply with a doctor’s recommendation to have additional testing for gestational diabetes was subjected to involuntary civil commitment. During her detention, the additional testing was never performed.

•A Louisiana woman was charged with murder and spent approximately a year in jail before her counsel was able to show that what was deemed a murder of a fetus or newborn was actually a miscarriage that resulted from medication given to her by a health care provider.

•In Texas, a pregnant woman who sometimes smoked marijuana to ease nausea and boost her appetite gave birth to healthy twins. She was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.

•A doctor in Wisconsin had concerns about a woman’s plans to have her birth attended by a midwife. As a result, a civil court order of protective custody for the woman’s fetus was obtained. The order authorized the sheriff’s department to take the woman into custody, transport her to a hospital, and subject her to involuntary testing and medical treatment.


Woman reveals what Planned Parenthood did when she refused to donate her aborted baby’s body parts

The selling of aborted baby parts is very much a part of Planned Parenthood’s business model, as has been revealed in a series of undercover videos showing high-ranking Planned Parenthood executives negotiating for high payouts. 

One woman is now telling her story of what happened when she refused to sign the papers donating her aborted baby’s body parts.

from Blaze:

“I was second-guessing my decision to have the abortion,” Tanner told Live Action News. ”And as I was filling out the paperwork, I saw a permission slip that dealt with the disposal of the ‘products of conception.’”

A nurse reportedly told Tanner that donating fetal tissue was similar to being an organ donor, but that argument didn’t convince Tanner, who said that she initially did not want to sign it.

“I said I didn’t want to sign it and they said I had to or I couldn’t have the abortion,” she said. ”I didn’t want my baby to be used for scientific research and I was told, ‘Don’t worry, it’s not a baby.’”

Tanner continued, “I told her I had two daughters already and I knew what a baby was. She said, ‘We don’t think its a baby.’”

In the end, Tanner ended up signing the form — an act that she now laments.

“[The nurse] said that I should give honor to what I thought was my ‘child’ by signing the form,” Tanner told Live Action News. “In my very confused state I listened to her say it was a ‘good’ thing to do, and I caved.”

Despite signing the form, she said that she was hoping for a way out of the abortion.

“I was on the table, but wanted to leave and I was pushed back down. They said it was too late to change my mind,” she said. “The cramping was horrible … after the machine was finally turned off, the doctor took the jar and right in front of me, he dumped the contents onto a tray and started looking for the pieces.”

Tanner also claims that the doctor yelled at her during the procedure.

“I can’t find all the parts. How pregnant were you?” he allegedly said, with Tanner adding, “He yelled at me! ‘If you get an infection it’s not my fault.’ Then he turned the machine back on and vacuumed some more. That was worse than the first time.”

After the procedure, she said that she stopped at the front desk and asked for her tissue donation form so that she could rip it up, but was told that the clinic no longer had it.

That sure doesn’t sound like an outfit that caters to “women’s health” to me.  It certainly doesn’t fit the so-called “pro-choice” narrative.  Planned Parenthood didn’t want her to have a choice, they only wanted her baby’s valuable body parts.

Latest Planned Parenthood video: “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating”

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more revolting or incriminating for Planned Parenthood, here’s the seventh in the series of undercover videos laying bare Planned Parenthood’s human tissue trafficking. 

Warning: there are some disturbing images in this video (but if you’re pro-choice, don’t worry, “it’s just tissue.”):

So, we’ve got multiple witnesses in this video talking about babies being born in tact and even in one case having a beating heart, but that doesn’t stop Planned Parenthood from dissecting them for their organs.  On the contrary, the more developed and complete these tiny bodies are, the more cash they can get upon sale. 

Anti-abortion goons target NC teacher who called them ‘misogynists’ outside a women’s health clinic [TW: Sexism, Anti-Abortion Extremism]
Anti-abortion protesters are terrorizing a North Carolina elementary school teacher who called them out during a demonstration outside a women’s health clinic.

Anti-abortion protesters are terrorizing a North Carolina elementary school teacher who called them out during a demonstration outside a women’s health clinic.

Shana Broders said the men tracked down her personal information afterward and have circulated her name and occupation on social media and threatened to show up at her home and school, reported Indy Week.

Broders volunteers as an escort at the Woman’s Choice of Raleigh clinic, where a group of mostly older white men organized by Matthew Tringali have been protesting on weekdays for the past two summers.

“He screams, he gets up in peoples’ faces, even when they ask him to stop, (and) he won’t stop following them and screaming at them,” Broders said. “He wears a camera taped to his chest so he can videotape people. We often have to call the cops often because he pushes the line.”

Broders said she angered the men, who are associated with the Abolish Human Abortion group, by calling them misogynists — and then explaining what the word means.

“It was the first in a series of errors,” Broders said. “They were ridiculing me for teaching them a new word. I told them, ‘teaching is my first gift, you’re welcome,’ and dummy us — we use our real names.”

Tringali and his group found out where Broders teaches and call the school and harass anyone who answers the phone, and they used her school portrait to create a Facebook post using her full name welcoming students and parents to her fifth-grade class.

“I love to bake and eat chocolate. I have made many cakes and cupcakes for friends and their children,” the post reads. “How did your child spend their summer vacation? I spent mine helping to MURDER babies at “A Woman’s Choice” Abortion clinic in Raleigh! Looking forward to seeing you!”

Broders, a mother of four, said AHA members have threatened to show up at her home and workplace, and school officials said they have contacted police to provide added security.

The teacher said Tringali — a New York native who travels the country harassing women outside health clinics — apparently holds a grudge against her because she got him cited for trespassing outside the clinic, and she thinks he is trying to get her fired.

But she’s more concerned about the safety of her family and students, Broders said.

“What I do in my personal life doesn’t have anything to do with my professional life,” Broders said. “I’m not sorry for what I do but my school doesn’t, because of my beliefs, deserve to be persecuted.”

Remembering Planned Parenthood's racist founder on the anniversary of Roe v Wade

Today is the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States.  Since that decision, over 57.5 million innocent human beings have lost their lives to abortion.  Leading the charge every step of the way has been Planned Parenthood, who last year alone performed 327,653 abortions in their facilities across America.

On this darkest of anniversaries, let’s not forget the brutal racism of Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger whose entire mission was to exterminate the black race in the United States.

This is a direct quote from her book entitled Women, Morality, and Birth Control published in 1922 on page 12:

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  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.

Sanger’s racism is still echoed today by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who looked back at Roe v. Wade as recently as 2009 and said the following:

Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. 

Today, Planned Parenthood intentionally places its facilities in the middle of metropolitan areas with the highest minority populations.  Their tactics are frighteningly effective at targeting black Americans.  For example, in New York City, where Margaret Sanger founded her first “women’s health” clinic, 78% of all abortions are black babies, and a black child is more likely to be aborted than born. The majority of those abortions were performed by Planned Parenthood, which still operates the Margaret Sanger Clinic on West 16th Street.

Liberal abortion proponents try to sweep the evil, racist history of abortion under the rug, but that simple isn’t possible.  From the very beginning up until this very day, aided by the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, the pro-abortion movement has worked tirelessly to accomplish the goals of their genocidal founder Margaret Sanger. 

When people say “consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy” what i hear is….

I consented to driving my car without paying attention, but i shouldn’t have to take responsibility for the person i just hit, or the damage to my car, or the increase in my insurance rates…

I consented to touching a hot pan, but i shouldn’t have to pay the consequences of being burned!

Yeah, i shoplifted, but everyone does it, its a fact of life! I shouldn’t have to deal with the repercussions because its unavoidable!

When it comes down to it, its just trying to avoid responsibility, while glorifying instant gratification and bringing up generations that have no values, morals, or respect for life.

UN Report Classifies Lack Of Access to Abortion as "Torture"

United Nations special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment, Juan E. Méndez, came out with his yearly report on torture last month. This year’s report “focuses on certain forms of abuses in health-care settings that may cross a threshold of mistreatment that is tantamount to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” Among other things, Méndez specifically cites lack of access to abortion.

Last year, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Reproductive Rights, Anand Grover, broke major ground by demanding the removal, without delay, of all barriers with regard to reproductive access globally, as well as granted access to contraception. In his report, Grover declared denial of access to abortion as discriminatory. Coupled with the new report from the Special Rapporteur on Torture, women’s rights activists worldwide are cheering.

In his report, Méndez, too, holds that denial of reproductive justice is discrimination on the basis of gender and denial of that right can cause “tremendous and lasting physical and emotional suffering” to women. According to the Special Rapporteur’s report, such violations include:

Abusive treatment and humiliation in institutional settings; involuntary sterilization; denial of legally available health services such as abortion and post-abortion care; forced abortions and sterilizations; female genital mutilation; violations of medical secrecy and confidentiality in health-care settings, such as denunciations of women by medical personnel when evidence of illegal abortion is found; and the practice of attempting to obtain confessions as a condition of potentially life-saving medical treatment after abortion.

AZ Police: Planned Parenthood covered up rape of teen girls because it was a "hassle" to report

The nation’s most proficient abortion mill Planned Parenthood is in hot water after Arizona police indicated that they failed to report an incident of rape of teenage girls.

from Breitbart:

A police report from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona states that a Planned Parenthood counselor intentionally miscoded a sexual assault as a consensual encounter because it would be a “hassle” to report it to the police, despite the state law requirement that suspected sexual abuse be reported to police.

The case under examination involves Tyler Kost, 18, of San Tan Valley, AZ, an alleged sexual predator charged with sexually assaulting 11 girls in the period between October 2009 and April 2014. The girls ranged in age from 12 to 17. Police believe the assaults were not limited to the 11 girls; they assert that he assaulted at least 18 students from Poston Butte High School. Last December, the mother of one 15-year-old girl who allegedly became pregnant as a result of the assault by Kost told the Planned Parenthood Arizona staffer about the incident.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office report states, “The counselor intentionally miscoded the assault as a consensual encounter. The counselor told them that they did not want the hassle of having to report the assault to law enforcement as they were a mandatory reporter.”

Just a reminder: Planned Parenthood gets your tax dollars to kill innocent babies and cover up the tracks of serial rapists.
