Planned Parenthood

Have you heard? Douglas Karpen, from Houston, Texas,  is the newest doctor, if he can be called that, making headlines for his “practice.”  What did he practice?  He made a practice of performing late-term abortions outside the boundaries the law states as legal.  Kermit Gosnell was just recently given life without parole for his “practice” in the Philadelphia area.

Can these faces become the new up-front image of the abortion/pro-choice industry?

I just did a quick search online for news stories concerning Dr. Karpen.  Results?  MSNBC – 0 results, ABCNews – 0 results, CBSnews – 0 Results, …..ummmm….even the Associated Press – “Your search “Douglas Karpen “ did not match any results.  No pages were found containing “Douglas Karpen.”  I’m not surprised.  I did, however, find that The Canadian Free Press is covering the story.  Again, like with the Gosnell story, it will take public outcry for news agencies to put even a little snippet of info up on their front pages.

Fear?  Yes.  Because this will become the face of the movement.

We regularly see the horrors of war on the front page.  We read of the horrors of 1 man in Cleveland kidnapping 3 ladies, using them as sex slaves and forcefully aborting at least 5 of their pregnancies that we know of…in fact that was the headline for days.

Yes, I wonder why it took this long for the nurses/assistants to come forward.  I’m simply glad they finally did.  I don’t know what heartache they have or what discouragements kept them from speaking…but they did.  I’m pleased that someone picked up their story.  I think this is the tip of an iceberg.

My questions for this topic would be addressed to the news outlets:

  • What’s the process for which you choose or choose not to cover a story?
  • Why do you quickly cover stories where “religious” people do harm to abortion clinic workers, but not when abortion clinic workers to harm to babies and ladies giving birth outside of current federal law (Gosnell)?
  • Is this type of story just too gruesome for you to cover?
  • If so, what are your boundaries for which something is determined to be too gruesome?
  • Are you afraid of these doctors becoming the new face of this specific freedom of choice movement as defined by Supreme Court decisions (R v. W)?

I’m pretty sure that no answers will be given…and I’m also pretty sure I know the answers.  But I’ll ask anyways.  Readers, please ask with me.

Thanks for reading

Here is my quick response to Cecile Richards’ recent column in USA Today. 

Ms. Richards is partly right and partly wrong, and decides to leave out one very important piece of information.  Yes, morning after pills can prevent sperm from coming into contact with an egg, but, and this is a very important, if fertilization has already happened, this pill will prevent an already forming human embryo, yes already forming…from receiving nourishment from it’s mother’s uterine wall.  Technically, this is called a chemical abortion.  This information is readily available on morning after pill websites…not just an opinion of mine.

How do the PREVEN® emergency contraceptive pills prevent pregnancy?
PREVEN® can stop or delay ovulation (the release of an egg), it can stop sperm from fertilizing an egg if it was already released, and it can stop a fertilized egg from attaching to the wall of the uterus.”

How Does Plan B® Work?
Plan B® (levonorgestrel) may prevent pregnancy by temporarily stopping the release of an egg from a woman’s ovary, or it may prevent fertilization. It may also prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus. ”

Question for Ms. Richards:  How do describe an already fertilized egg?

Another question please:  I’m assuming that you feel pregnancy begins when the human embryo attaches itself to it’s mother’s wall.  True or false?

Thanks for reading.

Make no mistake. God‘s name was invoked recently by President Obama as if he was calling on God to bless this organization. The number one abortion provider in the country and a tax-payer funded organization now world-wide (some don’t know this fact), Planned-Parenthood is leading the way for the Pro-Choice movement. My question to the president is this, which I’ve never heard anyone ask, “Mr. President, when do you think human life begins?” And another question please, “When do you think the life of your daughters began?” And yet another, “When did you start saying that your wife was carrying a child?” Oh…and yet another, “If you found out the gender of your two daughters before birth, did you name them?”

You see, the answers to the first question will show one’s philosophy of life and determine the answers to the next few. If the president would answer honestly that life doesn’t begin until 3rd trimester or after first breath, descriptions many pro-choicers like to use, then he would not call the 1st trimester baby-bump his child, nor would he even want to know the gender let alone name the “fetus.”

Most of us know his voting record on baby/fetus issues before he became president. But no one has sat down with him to answer the tough questions.

I’m just wondering if anyone would ask him these questions now….
