R2L rebuttal to the Sacramento Bee article against Crisis Pregnancy Centers/CPCs

NARAL is at war with pregnancy centers throughout the country, but why? Because the pregnancy centers are having an effect on the abortion industry’s blood-money flow. Women are turning to CPCs and choosing life! Although there are many cover-ups and neglects perpetrated by the abortion providers which NARAL so avidly supports; R2L would like to call out just a few by dissecting the scenario that NARAL’s Amy Everitt’s provided in her Sacramento Bee article.

Amy’s scenario in the Bee – “A young and scared pregnant woman walks into what looks like a medical clinic seeking help. When she says that she has a scholarship to start college and doesn’t feel ready to be a parent, a staff person tells her that she’s already a mother and college can wait. When she asks about abortion, she is told that if she has one, any future pregnancy will be sad because she’ll feel like she doesn’t deserve children. They say that if she has an abortion and doesn’t tell anyone, she could die alone and no one would ever know what happened to her.”

1. “A young”– What age does NARAL consider to be young and do they care if women are under age? Let’s look at one of the organizations NARAL emphatically backs, Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood was caught covering-up child sex trafficking and illegally not reporting rape. For documented evidence, please read the linked article on Personhood USA and the story of an abused 13 year old on Live Action.

2. “Scared pregnant woman”– Why is the woman scared? Does NARAL or the Abortion provider ask or care? According to the Vitae Foundation, 64% of women are bullied into having an abortion. R2L prayer vigil members have actually heard first-hand accounts of this bullying from the victims outside of the abortion facility on Butano Dr.

3. “She has a scholarship to start college”– Women do lose their Athletic scholarships if they become pregnant, please google this issue or go to this ESPN article. This is prejudicial! Is NARAL investigating this prejudice against women and are they defending them? There is no evidence to support that they are.

4. “Doesn’t feel ready to be a parent”– If you’re not ready to be a parent, should the baby die? Please consider the loving option of adoption! A study conducted by the Journal of Social Issues stated that 81% of women surveyed said they felt victimized by the abortion process, and that they were either coerced into the abortion or that information about alternatives or the actual procedure had been withheld.

5. “A staff person tells her that she’s already a mother and college can wait.”– Could not find evidence of this when researching.

6. “When she asks about abortion, she is told that if she has one, any future pregnancy will be sad because she’ll feel like she doesn’t deserve children.” R2L members have personally heard from post-abortive women that their future pregnancies were sad and that the new pregnancy did bring-up memories of the abortion. Does NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Family Planning Associates or any other abortion provider send out a questionnaire to post-abortive women to see what their thoughts and feelings are after an abortion? I researched PP, FPA, and NARAL and couldn’t find a survey.

7. “They say that if she has an abortion and doesn’t tell anyone, she could die alone and no one would ever know what happened to her.”– Women do die as a result of complications from the abortion procedure both at home and at abortion facilities. If pieces of the baby are left inside the womb or the womb is cut during the abortion, the woman will experience complications such as internal bleeding and/or sepsis. If she passes out at home and is alone, then death can and has occurred. Please reference emergency information at Complications of Abortion.

DOCUMENTED ARTICLES: Please visit the Operation Rescue site for articles on, and a list of women who have died from complications due to an abortion. Also, please see Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of the danger of abortion.

Finally, let’s keep in mind that there are approximately 60 million men and women who have died through abortion; they’re the babies unable to speak for themselves! Please keep them in your prayers!

Sacramento, California City Council Secretly Funds Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

by Sarah Zagorski | LifeNews.com | 12/19/2014

Apparently there isn’t one person on the Sacramento City Council who opposes Planned Parenthood.

A recent KCRA report revealed that funds are being donated by the California council members to the abortion business; however, the money is supposed to be ear-marked for teenage mothers through a Planned Parenthood scholarship and program. The organization claims that through this program, they support 12 single mothers with a budget of $50 thousand dollars a year.

Even though Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, officials of the abortion giant claim they keep funding for educational programs separated from their other “services.”

Council member Angelique Ashby said, “I donated to a scholarship. The money that I gave only could go to a scholarship fund for young single moms already selected to go to college. At one point in my life, sir, that was me. So I hope that in doing so, that some of those young women grow up, love their city enough to come back, run for City Council and be the next Mayor Pro Tem of the City of Sacramento.”

As LifeNews previously reported, this was the same council member who yanked off her microphone and walked off when she was questioned by a news reporter earlier this month. But still, despite her strange response to questioning, in the council’s opinion Planned Parenthood is a great organization and is guilty of nothing. Another member, Steve Cohn, said “I believe that is a undeniably worthy community purpose. These funds do not go to abortions or other controversial programming.”

However, we know how Planned Parenthood really works and how in the past they’ve been found guilty of using tax-payer money for other purposes. For example, just last year Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast had to pay the state of Texas $4.3 million for fraudulently overbilling the taxpayer funded Medicaid program. Additionally, not only does the thriving abortion business participate in fraudulent activity, they believe they can instruct our children without parental permission. In fact, at a school in Los Angeles, Planned Parenthood provides free birth control for teens without parents’ knowledge, and at similar schools, Planned Parenthood provides the morning after pill and counseling for abortion.

So even IF (and that’s a BIG if) they don’t use the money from the Sacramento City Council fraudulently, why would they want to give an organization money that does things like cover up statutory rape, teach our teenager girls that its a-ok for their boyfriends to push them into participating in violent sex and brings in 170 million dollars in abortion income every year?

Unfortunately in 2012, the organization raked in $560.6 million dollars in taxpayer funding, which averages out to $1.5 million every day. Their breast cancer screening services dropped by 14% and their prenatal services by 32%. For every one-adoption referral that Planned Parenthood facilitated, they performed 149 abortions.

Taking this into consideration, I think it’s safe to say California citizens should be outraged that their city council members support Planned Parenthood and should contact them right away.

Justice Antonin Scalia’s minority opinion in McCullen v. Coakley: Discrimination against Pro-Lifers

foxnews.com/politics/2014/06/27/scalia-accuses-fellow-justices-discriminating-against-pro-lifers/

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Scalia accuses fellow justices of discriminating against pro-lifers

While the McCullen v. Coakley ruling overturning buffer zones outside abortion clinics pleased pro-life activists, Justice Antonin Scalia thinks it didn’t go far enough.

The court unanimously agreed that the Massachusetts law, which barred protesters and counselors from being within 35 feet of abortion clinics, violated the First Amendment, but denied that it unfairly discriminated against abortion opponents.

PODCAST

“Today’s opinion carries forward this Court’s practice of giving abortion-rights advocates a pass when it comes to suppressing the free-speech rights of their opponents,” wrote Justice Antonin Scalia, with whom Justices Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas concurred. “There is an entirely separate, abridged edition of the First Amendment applicable to speech against abortion.”

The law’s opponents argued that the law was what is known as a “content-based” restriction of speech because “it creates speech exclusion zones only at abortion clinics and, as a practical matter, affects speech on only one controversial issue–abortion.” Because the law exempted clinic employees and volunteers from the buffer zone, they also argued that it privileged abortion supporters.

Content-based restrictions must pass strict scrutiny, the highest level of judicial review. Continue reading
