For those women who go to Planned Parenthood, this is a sight that you have not seen to date. It’s a mammogram machine. It’s what Planned Parenthood led people to believe they had and used.

They lied.

Foundations don’t like it when they give an organization millions of dollars for services that are not rendered. They’re just funny about stuff like that, and Susan G. Komen is to be applauded for finally putting their foot down and pulling Planned Parenthood’s funding.

SGK Chairwoman Nancy Brinker is Susan Komen’s sister and has been making good on a deathbed promise to Susan to find a cure for this disease. Brinker could simply put all of her eggs in the research basket and go full throttle on research.

She doesn’t. She has taken a humane and balanced approach by also funding breast cancer screenings for middle-aged women, and preventive education for younger women.

The problem is that she gave millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, who said they performed mammograms, but only performed manual breast exams (feeling for lumps). That’s a problem. In the spectrum of clinical services, a manual exam is orders of magnitude less effective at detection than a mammogram.

The narrative against Komen is that needy women will now suffer because Komen is going to…

…wait for it…

…Fund organizations that will do actual mammograms for needy women.

So vexed is the Planned Parenthood crowd that New York’s Mayor Mike Bloomberg has offered Planned Parenthood a $250,000 matching grant for fundraising. This means that PP will have $500,000 within a week to continue their manual breast exams on women.

Too bad New York’s billionaire mayor didn’t seize on the opportunity to purchase an actual mammogram machine for New York’s hundreds of thousands of low-income women. Instead, he continues to fund the building of PP’s Potemkin villages.

Though it seems longer, it was only last year that Lila Rose released undercover videos of PP nurses advising a “pimp” and his bottom girl to take their teenage prostitutes to the county health department for free services if they lacked health insurance or cash.

Is that not the reason why city, state, federal, and foundation money (such as Komen’s) was given to PP in the first place?

Hear the lie directly from Cecile Richards’ own mouth, and the truth from PP employees regarding the mammograms:

The response of PP is to claim that they provide referrals for mammograms, which is pretty weak, at best. PP may also have reimbursed some centers for mammograms, but why the middle-man?

Not detecting a lump by manual exam does not mean that there are no lumps. If palpation were as good as a mammogram, we wouldn’t perform the mammograms at all. That’s pretty basic stuff. So why does PP need Komen’s money? Because PP needs money. Period.

For the best chance at catching cancer in its earliest stages, women will need a mammogram referral anyway, regardless of lump detection. So why can’t PP just give the referral over the phone when women call, or hand it to them when they walk in off the street?

Because mediocrity never concerns itself with excellence in patient care. Mediocrity is all about the money. Komen has made a wise and ethical business decision by cutting out the middle-man and funding actual mammograms. Mediocrity’s reply?

Women are going to suffer and die because Komen prefers to fund actual mammograms over squeezing breasts.

What PP has not said is that they are so committed to women’s health that their staff are all donating five hours per week to perform their manual breast screenings and give referrals for mammograms.

They haven’t said it because that’s not part of the business model.

This is PP’s most dire hour. If Komen is allowed to pull up stakes without being savaged, plenty of big corporations will pull up stakes as well. Plan to see corporations abandoning Komen, not out of anger at Komen, but for fear of Planned Parenthood. There is a simple strategy to blunt PP’s attack.

Komen, TODAY, needs to announce a new inner-city initiative where they will purchase mammogram machines for the neediest urban centers, where local governments will provide low-cost, and medicaid-subsidized mammograms as the answer to PP’s cheap squeeze. They should then issue a call to all major corporations to join in this effort.

And what better month to do it in than Black History Month where we turn our attention to racism’s residue, which has left us with enduring inequities? Given the frightful incidence of breast cancer in the Black community, it’s an initiative whose time has come.

Komen can seize this opportunity and lead the way with excellence as the antidote to Planned Parenthood’s mediocrity.

Well, it’s been quite an interesting week. Response to the posts here at Coming Home have ranged from polite discourse to me being a heretic, promoting heresy, covering and promoting mortal sin, the sinking of the Bismarck and the Titanic, and the explosion of the Challenger.

Those caught up in this have been unrepentant heretics such as your humble host (if we are to believe some who have suggested as much), sincere philosophers and theologians who have weighed in on both sides (Meaning this will only be resolved in Heaven), as well as garden variety victims of the psychological affliction of scrupulosity.

I’d first like to address the scrupulous. Scrupulosity is a psychological/emotional affliction that dresses itself up in vestments and passes itself off as moral theology (on steroids). It’s a serious matter that is quite debilitating. But it’s the individual’s affliction, and not my sin.

As for those great thinkers such as Chris Tollefsen and Mark Shea, per usual, their writing keeps me up at nights when the house is quiet. These are giants at whose intellectual table I have been well-fed. Perhaps they are correct, and perhaps it is my life experiences that have colored my vision, cracked the prism through which I perceive and respond to the world, but on this one, we’ll have to agree to disagree for now. Make no mistake; these men are priceless gifts from God to the Church, and one issue does not an adversary make (not even a hundred with them!)

I simply see no mortal sin here, as so many have suggested. I see no venial sin here as many have suggested. I do not think that murderous, brutal people are entitled to the truth and ought to be exposed through covert operations. Perhaps this makes me a consequentialist, perhaps not. But I can’t forget so very many experiences that I wish I could forget, so many children who were pimped and pumped full of drugs, many who have since died of AIDS.

I wonder how many who take issue with Lila Rose would argue that her videos are poison fruit and ought never be used against Planned Parenthood?

I wonder how many would, after the Lila debates, now call for the immediate dismantling of the CIA, the national Security Agency (NSA), the abolition of undercover and plainclothes operations by the police, covert ops by the military, etc.

I find the entire magnitude of this eruption, along with its timing, quite disturbing, coming as they do after four years of undercover work and when LA has yielded its greatest fruit, when Planned Parenthood is critically wounded. Individual motives, though they be good, this has had the effect of straining gnats while babies and teens are butchered wholesale by this organization.

Certainly there is a time and place for such discussions, as that is how ethics and moral theology are done. But given the consequences in real blood, I believe this discussion to have been woefully ill-timed. And there is another aspect of this that has not been discussed, and that is the mortal sin of detraction.

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia:

“Detraction is the unjust damaging of another’s good name by the revelation of some fault or crime of which that other is really guilty or at any rate is seriously believed to be guilty by the defamer.”

That’s something to think about, and my last word on this debate.

I’m moving on.

It’s been an interesting week in the Catholic blogosphere, to say the least.

The most damning evidence about Planned Parenthood has emerged in their 95 year history of eugenic genocide, complete with the evidence that they:

*May well have tainted the Virginia blood supply.
*Do not use the $350 million per year in federal funding for its intended purpose of providing health care for those without insurance or cash.
*Coached a pimp in how to lie about the age of minors in order to procure abortions.
*Showed a consistent willingness to aid and abet child sex-trafficking.

This coupled with the most pro-life Congress since Roe v Wade who were ramping up to defund Planned Parenthood, and the Catholic blogosphere erupts in spasms of indignation at…

Not Planned Parenthood…

But Lila Rose.

It is perfectly understandable that methodology is important. How we arrive at the end matters, and it is altogether proper to address methodology. But there is a proportionalism in the outrage that is frighteningly lopsided, to the the point of having handed Planned Parenthood Lila’s head on a stake. Of course, the question is, why?

The next question, in light of Lila’s past four years is, why now?

The last question is, why the magnitude?

To answer the more generic, “Why?”, and to return to matters of methodology, every discipline needs a method, and certainly this is true in science as well as morality and ethics. In biology, a poorly designed study yields data that are uncertain, especially if proper positive and negative controls are not employed. Data mean nothing if they are not held to an objective standard. The data are regarded as so much unintelligible gibberish in such cases.

In the Live Action sting, it is the contention of several (though not all) ethicists that Lila’s method failed the standard of the sacred sciences. It is contended that she used unjust means (lying) toward achieving a noble and just end (revealing the truth about what really goes on behind closed doors at PP). But in this case, the data are not unintelligible. They are not gibberish, as they are evaluated against the known standards in morality, law, medicine, and ethics. The behaviors are atrocious. So, in a worst case scenario, imperfect means were employed to yield a bumper crop of highly valuable, highly intelligible, and highly useful data.

The crux of the issue is whether Lila’s actions rise to the level of lying as defined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and which I treated in another post which can be viewed here.

In several critiques of my critique, many have held to philosophical traditions, many very Catholic, but do not address the core of my argument. That core is whether or not the method has become its own standard, and does not address the issue that permeates the Gospels, namely that Jesus used the spirit of the law as the external standard for guiding observance of the letter of the law. In the passages I cite, he drives this point home by citing how David broke the law, defended His Apostles’ breaking of the law, and then went so far as to rub the pharisees noses in it by healing a man on the Sabbath in their synagogue. In all of this, the spirit of the law was cited as the rationale for determining whether the precept of the law as observed violated the higher spirit of the law.

Despite my repeated attempts to engage the clear teaching of Jesus on this, the matter has been consistently side-stepped.

Growing up in the 70’s I suffered through situational morality and ethics which basically left one rudderless. Everything was relative. Catholic intellectuals who came of age in that time and saw the awesome destructiveness of that are right to be wary of anything that smacks of situational ethics or morality today. But we can perhaps be too wary and err in the other direction. The disproportionate ink spilled over Lila would seem to suggest that perhaps a bit of that is in play.

Mark Shea, whom I read regularly and respect immensely, has written that he is concerned that the Live Action sting will set the pro-life movement off on a trajectory of dishonesty for the sake of short-term gain, becoming liars for Jesus. While this may anger some pro-lifers, I would caution that Mark’s concern is a valid concern, but I would also suggest that it has little soil in which to grow into reality.

Apart from the Live Action sting, there is precious little need in the pro-life movement for such undercover investigative techniques. In fact, the great strength of the pro-life movement today is that we have scientific evidence in great abundance to support us at every turn, whether it’s the sonogram technology revealing the intricacy and beauty of embryonic and fetal development, or the vast bodies of literature showing the psychological, oncological, gynecological, obstetrical, and infectious post-abortive sequelae. The truth is on our side. The proaborts have nothing but hackneyed bumper stickers.

So while Mark’s warning needs to be taken to heart, I just don’t see where pro-lifers would ever need to lie, and that brings us back to the central question which will not be resolved anytime soon:

Did Live Action lie?

Beyond that, the magnitude of the criticism of Lila Rose seems greatly misplaced, and more than a little ill-timed.

Finally, there has emerged a great deal of tension between the scholars and the troops on the front lines at the “clinics”, and not a little anger. Pure academia has its dangers, to be certain, as does pure activism. The former may seem cold and aloof, while the latter are left feeling as though they are being expected to bring a feather to a gunfight, and are tempted at times to use the most expedient means. I’ve worked on both sides, and see this from both perspectives. Not surprisingly, I see a need for a meeting in the middle. Such a meeting is not to suggest a compromise with morality, but rather to discuss whether indeed immorality was committed. Again, it is my contention that it was not. I also am waiting to see a comparable level of critique of Planned Parenthood from those who have taken exception with Lila.

Somehow, I surmise many will claim that their work is about critiquing moral methodology, hence the focus on Lila. To such a response I would say that a critique of Planned Parenthood’s moral and ethical methodology, based upon the sum total of Live Action’s four years of data, should keep these authors busy for months to come.

Update 2/20: The Last Word Here

Read Full Post »

In the midst of Lila Rose’s greatest triumph, one that has dealt a deep and potentially mortal wound to Planned Parenthood, Catholic theologians and philosophers have raised the issue of whether Lila’s techniques are moral. The question is, “Did she lie?”

The articles written have ranged from thoughtful, deliberative pieces to hatchet jobs. I’m not linking to them here, because I don’t wish to fuel the fire that threatens to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Around the web, such hypotheticals have been raised as, “If I were sheltering Jews in Nazi Germany and the SS knocked and asked if I were sheltering Jews, I would be morally obligated not to lie. I would need to tell the truth.”

Unbelievable! And from people whom I respect greatly.

I have no desire to get into debates over what constitutes a lie or not, but simply desire to go on record as saying that I would lie through my teeth in order to preserve the Jews whom I would definitely shelter.

Would the majesty of God be so offended by such a lie that I would be damned for all eternity? I think not.

Jesus came to reveal to us the intimate, loving relationship that He had with the Father, and to tell us that we are called to share in that loving relationship. So what kind of Father did Jesus reveal to us? Consider this from Matthew 7:9-12

“Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread,or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.”

Let’s play with that one for a moment.

Would I want my children raped, beaten, tortured, murdered? Of course not. And if I who am sinful desire the good for my children, how much more does God? Would the majesty of God not require that we do all in our power to prevent a far greater sin from befalling the defenseless? It is at this point that the debate about the ends justifying the means comes in. In the case of Lila, in the case of sheltering Jews, I simply refuse to get caught up in academic standards that are held up as their own internal standard, leading to the implosion of charity.

This is what happened to the Pharisees. The letter of the law became the internal standard, leading to a myopic cyclone from which they could not escape. Consider Matthew 12:1-14

” At that time Jesus was going through a field of grain on the sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat them. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, ‘See, your disciples are doing what is unlawful to do on the sabbath.’ He said to them,

“‘Have you not read what David did when he and his companions were hungry, how he went into the house of God and ate the bread of offering, which neither he nor his companions but only the priests could lawfully eat? Or have you not read in the law that on the sabbath the priests serving in the temple violate the sabbath and are innocent? I say to you, something greater than the temple is here. If you knew what this meant, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned these innocent men. For the Son of Man is Lord of the sabbath.’

“Moving on from there, he went into their synagogue. And behold, there was a man there who had a withered hand. They questioned him, ‘is it lawful to cure on the sabbath?’ so that they might accuse him. He said to them,

“‘Which one of you who has a sheep that falls into a pit on the sabbath will not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable a person is than a sheep. So it is lawful to do good on the sabbath.’ Then he said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’

“He stretched it out, and it was restored as sound as the other. But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him to put him to death.”

So, though the letter of the law would prohibit any work on the Sabbath, Jesus reminds us that violating the letter of the law is common sense when it means saving life, or doing good; whether that means saving a sheep, or a teenage prostitute, or a Jew cowering in my basement.

Yet, our modern-day doctors of the law have taken it upon themselves to kill Lila in the media.

Perhaps it comes from seven years of working with teen prostitutes, but I cannot fathom how Lila is being pilloried. I’ve dealt with the horrors, the children who can’t sleep at night because of the nightmares, the children who have no soul left and are the walking dead. Like Jesus, I’ve kept myself from getting sucked into the vortex of detached academia and moved among the wounded. It is the only bulwark against Phariseeism. I’ll never forget the girl who told us one night when she couldn’t sleep that she must have serviced at least two thousand men.

She was sixteen.

But to put the issue to bed, the Catechism of the Catholic Church states the following:

2483 Lying is the most direct offense against the truth. To lie is to speak or act against the truth in order to lead someone into error. By injuring man’s relation to truth and to his neighbor, a lie offends against the fundamental relation of man and of his word to the Lord.

2488 The right to the communication of the truth is not unconditional. Everyone must conform his life to the Gospel precept of fraternal love. This requires us in concrete situations to judge whether or not it is appropriate to reveal the truth to someone who asks for it.

2489 Charity and respect for the truth should dictate the response to every request for information or communication. The good and safety of others, respect for privacy, and the common good are sufficient reasons for being silent about what ought not be known or for making use of a discreet language. The duty to avoid scandal often commands strict discretion. No one is bound to reveal the truth to someone who does not have the right to know it.

The undercover actions of Lila’s team were designed to bring the truth to light, for the benefit of the PP staff, and for society. Her actions were not designed to lead anyone into error, but OUT of error, and so they fail to satisfy the criterion of intent in #2483, highlighted above.

It is interesting to note that the people who have taken up the position against Lila are all academics, which points to the dangers faced by scholars. We can get caught up in the world of the pure ideal, a world where fictional jews are betrayed by those who like young George Washington said,

“I cannot tell a lie”.

It’s easy to do our scholarship as we move fictional armies about the board, see fictional babies die, see theoretical children pimped.

It’s easy to stand and watch them die, because we know that they really don’t exist, except as theoretical constructs in our own minds.

Then we get to go home to our real families, whom we would watch slaughtered one-by-one by some modern-day SS troopers who come looking for them, because after all, we cannot tell a lie.

Or would we?

In Live Action’s Perth Amboy, New Jersey Planned Parenthood sting, nurse manager Amy Woodruff is asked by the “pimp” and his “bottom girl” how soon a fourteen year old girl can go back to work after an abortion. Two weeks for intercourse was the reply. But in response, in the words of the pimp:

“I mean they still gotta make money, you know?”

Woodruff’s heartless reply:

“Waist up.”

Meaning that they can still do oral sex while their frail bodies recover from gynecological surgery. This beast couldn’t even screw up a shred of humanity to say,

“Hey man, they aren’t machines. Give them a little rest.”

That now-infamous line, “Waist up,” screams for a little epidemiology, and pathophysiology. Let’s look at a sampler platter with only some of the STD’s transmitted via oral sex performed on the most STD-riddled members of society.

{I don’t show clinical photos of disease manifestations. I leave it to the reader to Google the images if they so desire}

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

It is estimated that more than 1,700 new cases of HPV-associated head and neck cancers are diagnosed in women and nearly 5,700 are diagnosed in men each year in the United States.*

*These numbers are based on a large study that covered 83% of the U.S. population during 1998–2003, and may under-represent the actual number of cancers diagnosed during this time period. Also, this study used cancer registry data to estimate the amount of potentially HPV-associated cancer in the United States by examining cancer in parts of the body and cancer cell types that are more likely to be caused by HPV. Cancer registries do not collect data on the presence or absence of HPV in cancer tissue at the time of diagnosis. Cancers of the head and neck are usually caused by tobacco and alcohol, but recent studies show that about 25% of mouth and 35% of throat cancers are caused by HPV.

The following graph from CDC shows the incidence rates of head and neck cancers from HPV:

Chlamydia

This is a bacterial infection that remains asymptomatic (silent) in over 50% of patients who have it. If it gets established in the mouth, nose, or pharynx, it leads to infections of the eye that are not always easily treated. Since it remains silent in so many, a person with oral chlamydia (or any pathogen for that matter) can get it on their hands by simply wiping their mouth, and then transmit it to their genitals by merely wiping after toileting. Once transmitted to the genitalia in girls, it can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and sterility.

Here are CDC’s rates of Chlamydia by age and sex in the U.S. in 2008:

Gonorrhea

It should be noted that Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis are often travel companions, and many clinicians will treat for all three if one is found.

Gonorrhea, also caused by a bacterium will often spontaneously resolve in cases of oral infection, but can be transmitted to objects placed in the mouth and throat, such as another penis. In rare cases of depressed immune function, oral gonorrhea can spread systemically (throughout the body). Cases of girls in sex-trafficking rings who are kept stressed, hooked on heroin and cocaine, and malnourished, are more likely to suffer from immunosuppression and become a candidate for oral, leading to systemic infection.

Here are CDC’s rates by age and sex for 2009

HIV

According to CDC, the oral mode of HIV transmission is lower than the vaginal and anal routes, but still a risk factor:

If the person receiving oral sex has HIV, their blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), or vaginal fluid may contain the virus. Cells lining the mouth of the person performing oral sex may allow HIV to enter their body.

The risk of HIV transmission increases

if the person performing oral sex has cuts or sores around or in their mouth or throat;
if the person receiving oral sex ejaculates in the mouth of the person performing oral sex; or
if the person receiving oral sex has another sexually transmitted disease (STD).

Syphilis

This disease is on the rise world-wide, especially in sex industry workers. It progresses through three distinct stages.

In the primary stage a painless sore, or chancre as it is called, develops on the genitalia or in the mouth and spontaneously resolves in a few weeks. Cases of oral chancres can often be misdiagnosed as some other oral pathology, and therefore go untreated. When this happens the disease progresses to its secondary stage where it becomes more diffuse throughout the body.

A number of different lesions appear in secondary stage disease, and about 25% of secondary stage lesions will recur, even after treatment. One of the manifestations is Ulceronodular Disease:

Ulceronodular disease is an explosive generalized form of secondary syphilis characterized by fever, headache, and myalgia, followed by a papulopustular eruption that rapidly transforms into necrotic, sharply demarcated ulcers with hemorrhagic brown crusts, organized in rupioid layers commonly on the face and scalp. The mucosa is involved in about one third of affected patients. Lues maligna gives rise to crateriform or shallow ulcers on the gingivae, palate or buccal mucosa, with multiple erosions on the hard and soft palates, tongue and lower lip.

From the same paper, the manifestations of tertiary stage disease include:

Syphilitic leukoplakia would appear to be a homogenous white patch affecting large areas of the dorsum of the tongue. There are few good descriptions of syphilitic leukoplakia, and it is unclear whether this lesion truly reflects syphilis, or more likely a tobacco smoking habit—indeed this was observed by Hutchinson in the 19th century.

An association between tertiary syphilis and oral squamous cell carcinoma—particularly of the tongue—has been suggested for many years. Both clinically- and serologically-based studies have suggested an increased prevalence of syphilis in patient groups with squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue (up to 60% in one study), the association being stronger in males than females. A relatively recent study of 16,420 people with syphilis resident in the US found a significantly raised frequency of cancer of the tongue (and Kaposi’s sarcoma) in males.

Herpes

Herpes Simplex Virus (both HSV-I and HSV-2) can infect the mouth, genitals, and anus, and are readily transmitted from one site to the other by oral sex. Worse, in some 2/3 of cases the patient can shed the virus without having any visible sores (subclinical shedding). Patients with herpes sores may also transmit HIV and other STD’s to the mouth of the prostitute, as these sores become portals of transmissibility for the other pathogens.

Hepatitis A, B, and C can all be transmitted via oral sex, and lead to liver disease and death.

This was just an STD sampler platter. Planned Parenthood holds itself out as the STD experts. They know the data on the spotty condom efficacy from CDC’s Fact Sheet on the Male Latex Condom, and know well that condoms don’t prevent STD transmission entirely.

Yet Planned Parenthood nurse Amy Woodruff, the office manager, was quick to recommend “Waist Up” for post-operative/post-abortive young girls servicing the most STD-prone members of society.

Remember, these are the “experts”.

Lila Rose has just released the second video in her sting operation. This time a Virginia Planned Parenthood knows they are sex-traffickers of teens and discusses how PP will help with judicial bypass.

Now I know the PP spin will say that the worker was just playing along, but the video speaks for itself. This employee discusses the law and how PP helps to skirt the law, and then refers the pimp to surrounding Maryland and DC which have looser time limits than Virginia’s 13 weeks, 6 days.

At no time does this employee state that she cannot help them with teen prostitutes. The worker did not excuse herself to call the police, nor did she do so afterward.

The gravity of this cannot be overstated. An adult (nurse?) in a clinic is conspiring with what she believes to be a pimp trafficking young girls in how to avoid parental notification laws for abortion in Virginia. This means that if my daughter is turning tricks on the side without my knowledge and accidentally gets pregnant, the fastest way for me to discover the whole sordid mess would be the pregnancy. But here we see an adult in scrubs telling a pimp how he can avoid getting himself caught by aiding in ridding the “evidence”. And in the words of Kimberly the worker:

“So for someone who’s a minor, that’s a really good option (judicial bypass). We do ‘em probably once or twice a month here… We’re pretty good at handling if someone, you know, doesn’t want someone else to know or doesn’t want their parents to know.”

There is no love at PP for young girls.

None.

The slime keeps oozing from Planned Parenthood.

It hasn’t been a very good week for New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. Planned Parenthood’s lap dog on the New York City Council has been helping fellow council member, Jessica Lappin drive through the legislative body a bill targeting New York’s Pregnancy Resource Centers with sign restrictions that meet with Planned Parenthood and NARAL approval. The bill would also constrain PRC’s from notifying law enforcement in the case of a child who is the victim of rape, incest, or sex trafficking unless that frightened and bewildered child is suddenly possessed with the objectivity, wisdom, and fortitude of a grown adult.

Last week, a judge in Baltimore ruled that city’s law (similar to bill 0371) to be unconstitutional on the grounds that the free speech rights of PRC’s were violated by pro-choice advocates determining the speech of pro-lifers. A permanent injunction was to be instituted today.

Then today, Lila Rose released the first of another series of sting operations against PP, this time showing a PP center in NYC’s backyard (Perth Amboy, NJ) where the nurse office manager encouraged what she thought was a pimp and a prostitute running a child sex-trafficking ring. The manager gave advice on everything from how to lie about the very young girl’s ages to make them seem older, to advising that they have girls who just had abortions just do oral sex in the two weeks afterward, to how to avoid parental notification in general. See the video here.

Quinn and her fellow traveler Lappin have the data on the genocidal numbers in NYC’s abortion industry, and have not rescinded the bill.

They have seen the Baltimore law struck down and have not rescinded the bill.

They have had their financial ties to Planned Parenthood and NARAL exposed in the New York Media, and have not rescinded this NARAL and PP-sponsored bill.

Now comes Lila Rose.

These are evil, wicked women for whom the Constitution means nothing, Public Health data mean nothing, parental rights mean nothing, and the rights of children to be protected from predators means even less.

Speaker Quinn wants to be the next Mayor of New York. If Bill 0371 is driven through the Council, in spite of all of the above, she will suffer a blistering two years in the run-up to the primaries. We need leaders who side with parents, and not the predators in Planned Parenthood. As it is shaping up, Speaker Quinn’s refusal thus far to rescind a bill aimed at crushing those who are the only decent alternative to NARAL and Planned Parenthood makes her unfit for public office. This is a representative democracy, where leaders do the bidding of the decent families who are the backbone of society, and not the bidding of the child predators.

It’s put up or shut up time for the Speaker.

Of course, if she doesn’t win the mayoral nod, she may still get “Best in Show” from Planned Parenthood.
