The response to the recent videos showing top executives from Planned Parenthood trying to negotiate the sale of baby parts is unusual to say the least. Where is the outrage over human organ trafficking? Has the 1984 law that requires a five year sentence in addition to fines to “knowingly acquire, receive or otherwise transfer” a human organ been rescinded? Instead of outrage there has been a conspiracy of silence from both the media and the left. It is almost as if Center for Medical Progress by producing evidence is attempting to slaughter a sacred cow of the left.
How could an organization that was born out of the eugenics movement become so important to the left? An organization originally called The Negro Project in regard to its primary target. Make no mistake Planned Parenthood is important to the left. Each year they award one of their own the Margaret Sanger award. Just the mention of trimming the budget to PP elicits cries of war on women, women’s rights and reproductive health like a stuck pig. To the left Planned Parenthood is a sacred cow, a sacred cash cow.
For an organization that we are told is so important to women’s health it sure needs a lot of government support. From their own annual report 41% of its budget comes from taxpayers like you and me. Contributions from groups such as Fannie Mae, American Cancer Society, March of Dimes and United way account for 30%. Only 23% of its income comes from health services. (IE: abortions). That 41% comes from $528 million in federal dollars and Medicare payments, $201 million in Title X family planning and $40.6 million in Title XX social services. In 2013 PP rode the Obamacare gravy train with half a million to navigate poor pregnant women to voter registration and free healthcare.
But you must give PP credit for diversifying like any good corporation. You can go to their website and purchase Planned Parenthood apparel. Everything from Baby onesie’s to an Obama “Yes we plan” T-shirt. Almost as shrewd as Henry Ford turning equipment pallets into Kingsford charcoal, they ship the byproduct of 327,653 abortions to a company called Stem Express. Stem Express doesn’t actually pay for baby parts just the shipping and handling. Just like the TV commercials where you get your $10 order doubled for $40 more in shipping and handling. How can Stem Express afford the cost? Well they also get government grants. Not from health and human services but NASA. (Stem Express grants) Our space agency gave them almost 1.5 million thru Cal Tech to study Stem technology. At the end of the day the non-profit PP ends up with an excess of $127 million. Just don’t call it profit. (Annual report)
So far we have seen how government is very very good to Planned Parenthood. How does this relate to how government or democrats in particular are so protective of PP. One might think that $800 million could buy a hell of a lot of votes. You can’t hand out tax dollars unless you win. That is where PP reciprocates with a vengeance. Starting at the top Cecile Richards (daughter of Ann Richards former Texas governor) president of PP since 2006. She touts herself first as an activist, then president of PP and then a democrat. Look again at the gift shop and the Obama t-shirt, notice no Romney, no Bush one can only guess they are ready for Hillary with a special collector’s edition pants suit t-shirt.
Ok so they give the democrats moral support and free advertising. It’s only natural for a sow to fight for a place at the teat. But wait…. is there more? A search of Open Secrets reveals a definitive pattern of a taxpayer supported non-profit pouring tax dollars into political contributions. (Open Secrets) Seventy three percent goes to democrats, 3% to republicans and the remaining 24% to individuals and political action committees. Since 1990 Planned Parenthood has invested $7.5 million to get a return of $191 million in grants since 2008. That doesn’t include title X or title XX, and Medicare state and federal reimbursement. How’s that for a return on investment? PP is hedging their bets by joining the Clinton pay to play foundation by teaming up to promote abortion internationally.
So this cash cow arrangement has been going on for years. Passing tax dollars around like a secret Santa at an office party. Along comes the Center for Medical Progress to upset this cozy arrangement. They prove you can’t con an honest organization and start bidding for baby parts against Stem Express. Dr. Mary Gatter sees her opportunity to be a role model to poor women everywhere by acquiring a Lamborghini thru a “kids for cars” program. The rest of the public is disgusted with this one woman’s right to choose to sell baby parts.
With ten more tapes waiting to be released the cash cow is making its way to slaughter. Corporate sponsors listed on the PP list have requested removal in light of the scandal. (Sponsor list) In an attempt to abort this drive to make these freeloaders earn and honest living the wagons are forming a circle. Health and Human services have rejected a Freedom of information request regarding federal money PP Director Nucatola has received in addition to her salary as not newsworthy. (FOIA) Four politicians have asked for an investigation not of PP but the Center for Medical Progress. (Shoot the messenger) Could you guess what they all have in common? All are democrats, all received cash from PP for elections, and all sponsored grants to Planned Parenthood. Both Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi have earned PP’s contributions by coming out of the closet to support organ trafficking.
The only question now is will the fatted cash cow be slaughtered on the altar of public opinion? The same altar stained with the blood of the democrat victims so often destroyed for daring to disagree with liberals. Or will the media and their masters be able to ignore and excuse what has never been about women’s health?
