Ohio Senate Passes Bill to Stop Planned Parenthood From Dumping Aborted Babies in Landfills

Yesterday [25 May 2016], the Ohio Senate approved legislation that would require abortion businesses to treat the bodies of aborted babies humanely after the abortion. The bill came about after Planned Parenthood abortion sites were caught dumping aborted babies in landfills. The abortion business pays to have aborted babies “steam cooked” before dumping them in landfills. The bill requires that the remains of aborted children are given humane burial or cremation and increases informed consent by requiring full disclosure to women pursuing abortions of their options for the aborted baby’s treatment. The legislation was introduced in December when Attorney General Mike DeWine revealed Planned Parenthood to be sending aborted children’s remains to landfills. “The more our society learns about the horrors of abortion, the more we are obligated to respond with courage and compassion,” said Kayla Atchison, director of external affairs for Ohio Right to Life. “The Ohio Senate is fulfilling that obligation with their efforts to shine a light on the abortion industry’s inhumane practices, and their work to preserve the dignity of the unborn child. We thank Chairman Coley and the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee for their leadership and work to preserve the dignity of the unborn child.” “With careful attention to detail and sincere compassion for all victims of abortion, the Ohio Senate is leading the state’s efforts to recognize and respect the dignity of every human person,” said Kayla Atchison, director of external affairs for Ohio Right to Life. “While we know there is nothing dignified in the act of abortion itself, we believe that this legislation is necessary for ensuring respect for...

Obama & His FDA ‘Gift’ the Abortion Industry: Reckless Expansion of Mifepristone (‘Abortion Pill’) Protocol

Late Chemical Abortions = More ‘Failed Abortions = Pay Twice to get a complete abortion… RU-486 makes teen girls ‘bleed out pregnancies,’ often without parents’ knowledge. One of the leading pro-life organizations is fighting back against the Obama administration’s approval for expanded use of the controversial abortion drug combination known as RU-486, calling the government’s decision harmful for women and babies and nothing but a political “thank you” from Obama to his allies in the abortion industry. The Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, which recently clamped down on e-cigarettes and some tobacco products to protect the health of children, is allowing women seeking abortions to take the RU-486 regimen until the 10th week of pregnancy. Previously, the limit was seven weeks. RU-486 is a two-drug regimen. The first starves the unborn baby of nutrients, leading the child to die. Live Action Founder and President Lila Rose says at 10 weeks, that baby is further developed than many realize. “The heart is beating,” she told WND and Radio America. “The brain is forming, leg and arm buds. By the end of the first trimester, the child has all his internal organs and body parts. He just needs time and nourishment to grow. You’re talking about a fairly developed pre-born child.” The second drug is even more powerful. “The second drug [usually misoprostol] induces labor,” Rose said. “It makes a woman bleed out her entire pregnancy as well as the pre-born child. That process can take up to two days” […and can prove extremely painful]. In addition to the FDA giving its approval for RU-486 for an additional three weeks,...

Planned Parenthood & Entire Abortion Industry Killed Women By Misusing the Chemical Abortion Pill, So Now FDA Relaxes Protocol Requirements Even More

The Planned Parenthood abortion corporation has long ignored FDA rules and subjected women to dangerous abortions by giving them the abortion drug outside the guidelines the FDA had put in place. The abortion drug is responsible for the deaths of dozens of women worldwide, including several in the United States alone, and it has injured at least 1,100 women in the United States alone as of 2006 figures from the Food and Drug Administration. But that hasn’t stopped the agency from deciding today to change the rules and guidelines the abortion industry once had to [were supposed to] follow to protect women’s health. The dangerous RU 486 abortion drug has nearly claimed the lives of two million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration. In addition to the number of unborn children whose lives have been lost to the abortion drug, women have suffered as well, as a Planned Parenthood study admits at least one woman is seriously injured from the abortion pill daily. Because of the high failure rate and the risks involved with RU-486 in later pregnancies, the FDA originally limited approval for use only in the first 49 days from the start of a woman’s last menstrual period. Planned Parenthood, by its own admission, ignores this limitation. Now, the Food and Drug Administration announced on Wednesday, that it had caved to Planned Parenthood’s demands and altered the approved use of Mifeprex, (also known as Mifepristone or RU486), to come in line with off-label protocols used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. The FDA has announced that...

Abortion Workers Revealed Disturbing Facts about Abortion Industry

[Ed. The book described was written in 1986. If these concerns were prevalent just 13 years after abortion was legalized nationwide, it becomes chilling to wonder how the level of indifference to the clients must have escalated since then…] Pro-choice author Carole Joffe interviewed abortion industry workers for her book The Regulation of Sexuality: Experiences of Family-Planning Workers. Although many of the clinic workers Joffe interviewed genuinely seemed to want to help the women, the book reveals many disturbing things about what went on in the abortion facility. According to the workers’ own words and the author’s observations, women were rushed through the facility to maximize profits – and abortionists often treated them badly. Joffe observes that the abortion facility regularly overbooked patients to maximize revenue. A significant portion of women, she observed, didn’t show up for their appointments and overbooking guarded against lost business. Joffe says: Like many other nonprofit clinics, Urban [the name Joffe gave to the clinic] typically overbooked clients, especially at peak hours, to guard against the loss of revenues that would result from too many no shows. This meant, for counselors, a never-ending stream of clients in the waiting room…The clinic had to make the most efficient use of medical personnel, the highest-paid workers in the clinic, for financial reasons and for courtesy. (83) One thing to take away from this quote is that many women change their minds after making the initial abortion appointment. We don’t know how many of the women the book speaks of chose life on account of pro-life intervention, but their minds were changed by something. Not all women...

Are American Taxpayers Paying For Abortion? What About the Hyde Amendment?

[Comment: While this article is rather long and complicated, it does answer the question about the Hyde Amendment restricting taxpayer funding. N. Valko RN, 4 Oct 2015] · taxpayers subsidize roughly 24% of all abortion costs in the U.S. · this is equivalent to taxpayers paying the full cost of 250,000 abortions a year, with about 70,000 financed by federal taxpayers In a fiery exchange with Chuck Todd on last Sunday’s Meet the Press, Carly Fiorina stated repeatedly that American taxpayers are paying for abortion. This may puzzle casual observers who are under the impression that for decades, the Hyde Amendment has somehow protected taxpayers who oppose abortions from having to pay for them. So what’s the truth? This week’s passage of a continuing resolution to avert a potential government shut-down over the issue of Planned Parenthood funding now has shifted what may be a knock-down-drag-out fight over that issue until December 11. For readers wishing to get better informed in advance of both that debate as well as candidate debates in the weeks ahead, I thought a brief primer was in order. As best I can determine, taxpayers subsidize roughly 24% of all abortion costs in the U.S. with 6.6% borne by federal taxpayers and the remaining 17.4% picked up by state taxpayers. If we apply the 24% figure to the total number of abortions, this is equivalent to taxpayers paying the full cost of 250,000 abortions a year, with about 70,000 financed by federal taxpayers and 180,000 financed by state taxpayers. These figures are very rough but certainly are more accurate than subjective guesses on either side...
