Planned Parenthood Head Urges
GOP to Dump Pro-Life Base

Breitbart's Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/9/2012 8:18:30 PM

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards has advice for Republicans after their big defeat on Election Day -- to abandon their pro-life base. Following an election campaign in which the taxpayer-funded organization spent $15 million tearing down Republican candidates who vowed to cut off its federal funding, Richards now says she is reaching out to pro-choice Republicans. In an interview in The Huffington Post, Richards said, “Back in the olden days, the Republican Party was the party that supported people’s individual rights and keeping government out of personal health care decisions

And I'm sure the cowardly Republicans, like Bonner and Hannity, will be more than happy to oblige!

Planned Parenthood began as the American Birth Control League to rid the "human garden of its weeds: Blacks, Jews, Catholics, Southern Europeans . . . . " Margaret Sanger intended to use birth control and sterilization to accomplish her mission.
How's this for irony? Sanger opposed abortion and called it barbaric.

Killing babies is morally wrong regardless of what the law says.

Furthermore, even if the GOP disassociated from pro life the liberals would hate them just as much.

They just don't want to be reminded of the evil they are committing.

I see that everyone on the left is trying to tell the GOP that they should be more like the left. Support illegal immigrants, give on on abortion, tax everyone who has earned some money, give up your guns...

And I see the GOP falling for it because they so want to be loved and adored and maybe they'll get to play President next time.

I grieve for my country...

Social issues are an anchor around the neck of the GOP. If you are GOP, and you say the word "abortion", or "gay", you will lose. Face facts, GOP. If you want to win elections outside of the South, do not talk about social issues. Don't compromise your principles, but don't paint a target on your forehead, unless your name is Akin or Mourdoch, then, go ahead, but do it when you are a city councilman, not a Senate candidate.

As for the desperately pragmatic Fixit above, weasels are selected by other weasels. Planned Parenthood (if parenthood is allowed to occur) is an organization that profits from the misery of others, and does so through institutionalized homicide. I support those candidates who oppose such despicable practices and proclaim their convictions, and have the courage to accept the consequences.
It seems that the concept of shame has been scrubbed from the national slate. What else can be expected from the Obama Ministry of Truth?

While I cannot stand Planned Parenthood and hate the Progressive eugenics ideology, I must say that this suggestion is not entirely crazy. I don't like abortion because I believe all potential life is a gift from God. But not everyone believes that. Now, I don't think anyone should dump anything. But I do think the GOP needs to take certain social issues off of the discussion. And one’s stand on abortion should NOT be a litmus test for being "conservative enough" either. A lot of Republicans do NOT necessarily believe that in the early term, a fertilized egg or embryo is a full, complete human being. The party would be much better to either completely drop this a platform issue or to softly accept only early first trimester choices while working diligently on educating the public about the reality and severity of the decision. We might not stop all abortion, but we could greatly cut down the number while continuing to get more support for the party. Ever since the party has taken hard stands against all forms of abortion, it has lost a LOT of support (voters) and any power to do anything to curb abortion. It has also allowed the left to turn abortion into an everyday, easy-to-get procedure that’s now all the way up to birth (which IS murder). And the left is still pushing it even further!

Isn't it better to make some headway in the right direction than to completely lose control and have everything roll in the wrong direction quickly?? Please think about it.

And yes, we should be standing for LESS government intrusion—not more.

By the way, dividing zygotes and tiny embryos are also not "babies"--nor are they sentient. Despite what some say, it is not necessarily as black and white as you want to make it.

To be honest, about 70% of all conceptions miscarry (that includes failure to implant). And about 30% of pregnancies, where implantation is confirmed, miscarry--but this is measured only at the earliest point of pregnancy detection. In general, among confirmed pregnancies within the first trimester (easily up to 5 or 6 weeks minimum), the number of miscarriages is actually closer to 15-20%. Of course, the further along the pregnancy progresses, the less likely it will miscarry. But my point is, that early term abortion is NOT necessarily so morally bankrupt an idea if your belief system is not stuck on the thought that "conception=life". And in truth, scientifically speaking, conception does not equal "life".

I'm confused, I thought the GOP was supposed to dump the Tea Party zealots in order to get elected. Wait, no, in order to win, the GOP was supposed to change their stance in illegal immigration. No, no, I'm wrong, the GOP was encouraged to embrace the GLBT voters and accept the "new norm" of gay marriage/adoption. My head aches, but I'll try again. The GOP must basically, no, fundamentally transform (heard those words before?) its platform and principles in order to WIN!!!!!! Cause winning is where it's at baby.
I have a suggestion for PP: crawl back into your spider hole and keep doing what you do best.

I remember the Pubbie Party pre-Reagan and pre-Gingrich. It was Democrat-lite, with no core values and no victories/majorities in the House or Senate. What Reagan and Gingrich had was the ability to explain where we should be going in a manner many could understand. What we lacked in those two worthies and the rest of the party was someone who could explain why we should stay the course and enforce that discipline. The TEA party won 2010 without any support or real help from the Pubbies other than a party name to file for candidacy. If we say we value the individual, but are willing to kill the inconvenient, we do not value the individual. We need to stand on principal. The TEA party gives us ideological discipline.

Planned PrenatalMurderHood would do well to stick to what they know best, murdering babies. Apparently they have mastered a skill that even Hitler could not.

Now, if only they could perfect a procedure that saves the innocent baby and aborts BOTH the mother and the sperm donor.

Uhhh -- pro-choice; individual rights; personal health care decisions; women’s preventive health care; women’s reproductive health care; etc. You need a Navajo Code Talker to figure out what the real subject of discussion is.

#23: Poster writes "about 70% of all conceptions miscarry (that includes failure to implant)." That´s a huge percentage. Can you provide a reliable citation source? I´d like to know. Are the 70/30 numbers reversed, maybe? Thanks.

If you want to see the demonrats abandon abortion then support it for the following reason

More than 40% of all the pregnancies by minority women end in abortion. The children they do not abort grow up to become democratic voters

If welfare queens faced mandatory abortion because they were on welfare then the number of children born to the ignorant, culturally backwards, illiterate women would fall and the democratic would have fewer voters.

Advocate abortion to control the cost of not only welfare but for things like Social Security

Support it call it what it is a way to control the number of voters for a particular group and see the democrats change.

Fight abortion with the truth of what abortion is.

The Republican Party caved to the Progressives several elections ago. This is just the final phase of the operation where it is all out in the open now, and the base is made to see the wisdom of abandoning unborn babies so that elections can be won by the Blue Pill Party that insists it´s a Red Pill Party.

The Party (Republican, that is) was over awhile back. What´s left is the remnants who make their money off the old system (pundits in the press) and therefore have a vested interest in keeping the illusion going. The Republican politicians know the score (hence you have Guvner Christie, Boehner and their ilk), and who kiss up to whatever Progressive is currently running things.

It´s over. It´s been over.

The Siren´s call for conservatives to prostitute themselves and give up the issues of legal immigration, small government and low taxes, and now being pro-life and pro-family is remeniscent of Darth Vader´s call to Luke Skywalker--"join ME, and together we will rule the galaxy"!

The Tea Party and Constitutional conservatives either need to take back the soul of the GOP, or consider making a run at third party.

Aborting a child in its development is not a social or political issue. It is, As #22 said, a matter of life and death, and #21/23 raises the crux of the argument; when does life begin. If it is true that ´scientifically speaking, conception does not equal "life"´, (I don´t agree, I see no other clear line of differentiation) then where, scientifically speaking, does life begin?

Give us a definition to hang the question on and it will quickly be resolved. Keep defining it as a ´social´ issue - a matter of ´rights´ for everyone except the ultimate victim - and it will remain an amorphous derivation that can be made to fit any number of arguments that the opposition wishes to raise for why it should be okay to kill certain kinds of human beings.

Question for Cecile and the Pro Abortion posters. Why are you so enthusiastic about killing, fully ´sentient,´ fully developed, crying babies who survive abortion procedures? Why do you classify them as any different than babies you raise as your children? With today´s medical technology we often rescue babies many weeks before full term and most of society applauds that. Don´t you? If your baby is under stress and is delivered many weeks before a natural birth would happen, doesn´t that argue for moving the abortion deadline back to at least the time in the gestation period when the baby is still forming lungs? For ´woman´s choice´ fans the question is when do you lift the death sentence for your children? If there is a gray area in this argument, abortionists have shifted it way too far to their side of the argument. I´ll happily wrestle with the problem of incest, rape and mother´s health vs two crying babies, kill that one.

Does our Constitution guarantee the freedom of religion, or does it merely allow a more limited freedom to worship? The difference is profound. Worship is an event. Religion is a way of life. Specifically, does the First Amendment guarantee believers of all faiths the freedom to practice their ethics, educate their children and operate family businesses based on their religious beliefs, moral convictions and freedom of conscience? Do Americans have the freedom to place our beliefs and ethics at the center of our business practices — or must we ignore them when we form a company? These questions will be

Rand Paul: The most intriguing

Washington Post, by Ruth Marcus    Original Article

Rand Paul is the most intriguing — and for Democrats, perhaps the most frightening — figure in today’s Republican Party. The Kentucky senator, who is more than flirting with a 2016 presidential run, is making a smart play for the millennial generation that was key to President Obama’s twin victories and that his own party has convincingly repelled. Paul’s unlikely pilgrimage to the progressive precincts of the University of California at Berkeley offered the most convincing evidence so far that he is serious about carving out this (sorry, President Clinton) third way space — and a demonstration of his potential

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
search tests limits of satellites

The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has exposed the technological limits of satellites, which can see a license plate from space — if not necessarily read it — but struggle to find a missing jetliner. These limits are shaped by physics, money and practicality. Military and commercial satellites are not closely observing and amassing data about the blank places on the map in lightly traveled seas — such as remote areas of the Indian Ocean thousands of miles from where Flight MH370 vanished from radar. There’s also a trade-off when scrutinizing the surface from space: You can go wide

When the National Zoo’s female sloth bear, Khali, delivered three cubs last December, she consumed one of them right after it was born. Carnivores do this in the wild when there is a sick offspring. A deceased cub in the den can draw predators, the zoo said. But a week later, when Khali consumed a second cub, keepers feared for the third. So for the first time in the zoo’s history, keepers took a sloth bear cub from its mother to raise by hand. Three months later, after weeks of incubators, midnight feedings and quiet sessions in a rocking chair,

Early in the Ukraine crisis, when the Europeans were working on bringing Ukraine into the EU system and Vladimir Putin was countering with threats and bribes, one British analyst lamented that “we went to a knife fight with a baguette.” That was three months ago. Life overtakes parody. During the Ukrainian prime minister’s visit to Washington last week, his government urgently requested military assistance. The Pentagon refused. It offered instead military ration kits. Putin mobilizes thousands of troops, artillery and attack helicopters on Ukraine’s borders and Washington counters with baguettes, American-style.

Russian mockery of President Obama has taken a bizarre turn. The newly elected Prime Minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, has tweeted (in Russian) a photoshopped image of Barack Obama in a Russian military uniform, implying that our president’s behavior can be explained by his purported status as a deep cover Russian agent. Oleg Atbashian of The People’s Cube, a former Soviet propagandist who fled to the West, has a fascinating post explaining what is going on here. Such a jab could have easily come from conservative jokesters in the U.S., as a way to vent their bitterness over Obama´s inept

SYDNEY—An Australian-led operation is under way to determine whether objects located by satellite imagery in the southern Indian Ocean belong to missing Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.08% Flight 370. "New and credible information has come to light in relation to the search," Australia´s Prime Minister Tony Abbott during a regular sitting of Parliament. He added that there was no certainty the objects spotted were part of the aircraft, which disappeared en route to China from Malaysia on March 8. Still, the apparent sighting is the strongest lead yet in a multinational search that has so far yielded little. Search crews found

President Obama declared today that the U.S. will not take military action in Ukraine. I think most of us had worked that out. “What we are going to do,” Obama declared “is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message.” The clear message will be this — please, please don’t invade more territory. In ruling out military action, Obama explained that “the Ukrainians don’t want [an actual war with Russia], nobody would want that.” But if Russia continues to devour their country, the Ukrainians are no less

A former high-ranking EPA staffer convicted of stealing nearly $900,000 by pretending to be a CIA spy had virtually no experience, got his job with help from a college buddy, and went on to play a key role in sweeping environmental regulations, according to a report Senate Republicans released Wednesday. Those regulations remain in place despite John C. Beale’s lack of environmental expertise, Republican investigators said, adding that they want the Environmental Protection Agency to review the work in which Beale was involved during his 24-year tenure. The report said Beale led an “itinerant life” as a police officer and

Federal officials have no qualms flying the friendly skies in style, regularly using executive jets and other planes in the government’s fleet of 1,700 aircraft for everyday travel. But they often don’t track how much such trips cost or the reasons why they skipped cheaper commercial flights in favor of firing up one of Uncle Sam’s aircraft. And lawmakers in Congress — usually charged with overseeing or reining in such expenditures — have their own addiction to luxury travel with a growing tendency to fly first class. Those findings by two separate watchdogs in Congress are the latest examples of a

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act. It’s called the Affordable Care Act. I know you didn’t intend any compliment or derogatory––it’s called the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason. "It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China." Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was
