Planned Parenthood now under nationwide investigation by GAO

half_bubble_plannedParenthoodThe following comes from an August 5 story on LifeSiteNews.com.

The General Accounting Office (GAO) will investigate every dollar of federal funding going to Planned Parenthood, as well as other organizations that support the liberalization of abortion laws, for potential fraud.

The GAO will investigate the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the Guttmacher Institute, the Sex Information and Education Council of the United States, the Population Council, and Advocates for Youth.

The “comprehensive” report will list every service performed and every federal dollar allocated, four Congressmen announced on Monday afternoon.

“It’s time for Americans and especially Congress to take a second look and defund Planned Parenthood,” said Congressman Chris Smith, R-NJ. “Hopefully this will help us finally put an end to U.S. taxpayer support, funding and complicity with this violence against children.”

The government watchdog’s decision comes more than five months after 72 Congressmen asked the GAO to investigate Planned Parenthood in a letter dated February 21.

“Despite the best and slickest market branding money can buy, the stubborn fact remains that Planned Parenthood clinics are among the most dangerous places on Earth for a child,” Rep. Smith said. “It is deeply troubling that despite the fact that Planned Parenthood claims direct responsibility for killing over 6 million unborn babies – including a record 333,964 abortions in 2011 alone, they still receive taxpayer money – since Obama’s election and U.S. subsidies to the abortion industry at home and abroad, have significantly increased.”

Senator David Vitter of Louisiana noted Planned Parenthood’s revenues saw “an 11 percent increase over the past two years.”

The organization performed a record number of abortions and received a record amount of taxpayer funding in 2012, $542.4 million….

  1. A revenue increase of 11% and 6 million babies – doesn’t this show how much this president cares about the living and how much worth he places on each individual?

    Eternal Father, in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life, I give you praise for Your Goodness and I thank you for the gift of life that you have bestowed on all persons. I know that you create each person and preserve each person in Your Infinite Wisdom to be a part of Your plan of love and salvation. I ask for your special protection of the unborn child in the womb of every woman, whether she be joyful or fearful about her pregnancy. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon these mothers and give them the grace to love and desire their child. Give to all mankind the wisdom and knowledge to respect and to love all human beings at every stage of their development. Give them reverence for the image of God that is in all human beings. I pray especially for all those involved in abortion in any way. Through the intercession of Mary, Queen of the Angels and their guardian angels, give them an infused knowledge of the evil of abortion and an instantaneous repentance of their role in the killing of innocents. Show them how to reconcile themselves with You. Amen.

  3. Abort planned parenthood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • How about Planned Aborthood? The caption for the MS. photo should read…”I’m free! Not messy grandchildren always asking for cookies!” “I’m free to be me me me!” And like Ted Kennedy, there will be thousands of women celebrating her ‘life’ at her funeral, telling the world how good and brave she was and all the good she did for women. The child she aborted would have been the joy of her life. Poor, poor woman.

      • Steinem is a ghoul, and one of the worst people in the US History in the last 60 years, may she rot in Hell .. Dana why do show such sympathy for such willingly evil (not misguided but evil) people….Church teachings state that the just in Heaven rejoice over the damned in Hell as being examples of God’s justice being carried out, my Heaven soon rejoice over meeting Our Lord’s justice…

        • Canisius, read my Aug. 11 post on Action News that I wrote in response to Catherine. I don’t want anyone to rot in hell, however. It would be good that she repented and helped to change lives and laws for good. Ted Bundy was converted in prison when Dr. Dobson was led to share the Gospel with him. His agony on being given a ‘new’ conscience was so great that he could only pray for death. Ms. Mefirst has a conscience so hardened that she has no idea how greatly she sins nor how many abortions and broken homes are directly attributable to her actions. There is an excellent article on Catholic.com called Honor Among Killers that you could relate to, but never wish anyone in hell, Canisius. Please, for your own sake! All of us are beloved by God and made in His image. Pray for reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

          • Dana, these ghoulish women, (the kind I grew up around) deserve Hell, they really do. Steinem will not repent we both know this, she celebrates abortion, that’s why I will celebrate her damnation along with Planned Parenthood’s.

          • Canisius, just as you despised what your mother did and rightly so, from what I have heard Gloria Steinem despised what her father did and ended up as she is. Be careful, Canisius how you use your hatred. Gloria’s father left the family when she was young, and from what I have read, her mother was a very weak person, and Glory ended up the “father’ of the family taking on his responsibilities — just her and her mother I think. She is still taking out the sins of her father on children. We need to be careful whom we harm when we are trying to punish others. Use your hatred for what your mother did for good, not evil by ever going overboard. Try praying for Steinem.

          • There is a possibility that Gloria’s mother was partially responsible for the break up. Perhaps she did not want any more children, but I have not read anything stating that. Even so the father should had helped support Glory and taken part in her life if the mother was willing. I do not know all the details. Perhaps her life story is on line some place.

          • Sorry I am not a good enough Catholic to pray for the likes of Steinem, just can’t bring myself to this.. You may need saint to do this

          Canisius,

          Please tell us where Church teaching teaches “that the just in Heaven rejoice over the damned in Hell as being examples of God’s justice being carried out, my Heaven soon rejoice over meeting Our Lord’s justice…”

          God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
          Kenneth M. Fisher

          • Kenneth, I reference Michael Voris, from Real Catholic TV…that’s where I heard this from…

          • Somewhere is the Book of the Apocalypse there is an indication of this interpretation, but I’d have to clarify my memory by reading it again.

  4. Maybe they imagine that God aborted the disobedient angels from Heaven, and so they can abort babies from their wombs. Sort of like Lucifer and/or Satan and whatnot, whatever, trying to push God off the Judgment Seat or at least trying to shove Him over enough to make room for themselves.

    • I think you give them way too much credit, Skai. If you think they worry about angels and God, think again. Like MS.ME, it’s all about me,my, mine, myself and I.

      • Dana, there are, as St Paul points out, various powers and all sorts of spiritual movers and shakers which motivate people … it’s not the herds of people but these ideas that move them, and usually they are not aware of it.

  5. It is to me the most disgraceful thing extant in this nation that through perverted manipulation of justice this most EVIL of organizations, planned parenthood, is still into the 21st century trying to hoodwink and bamboozle the American woman into believing that they provide a valuable service for them and that so many deluded women still fall for this satanic lie. The other egregious lie promoted is that it’s OK that 90% of married Catholic women today in the U.S. use artificial contraception in order to practice “birth regulation” by doing so, and not caring that a good number of contraceptive products are abortifacients, that they willingly KILL numbers of babies in the womb w/out batting an eye. Because they found a “Vatican II” priest who told them “everything’s changed under Vatican II, just FOLLOW YOUR CONSCIENCE and you’ll be allright”. God help the priests who gave the women that counsel and God help all those who facilitated the avalanche use of abortifacient contraception under that rubric, “Vatican II.” Even after Pope Paul VI issued “Humanae Vitae.” I knew some of the husbands and wives that accepted that awful counsel, and just ignored what the Pope taught through H.V., which was always the constant teaching of the Church. In some ways, is it any wonder that Barack H. Obama ascended to the very pinnacle of U.S. government? He’s part of the chastisement that now afflicts us. May the Holy Immaculate Virgin PRAY FOR US, we so desperately need her prayers. GOD BLESS ALL, MARKRITE

    • markrite, Vatican II never supported abortion, sterilization, or contraception. You will never find your misinformation in any Vatican II document.
      Please correct your error now and in the future.
      (The other option is to provide us with your documentation for your statement – use official Church documents only please.)

      • True teaching of the Church – “Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition” –
        ABORTION paragraphs: # 2271, 2272, 2322, 2274;
        STERILIZATION: #2399
        CONTRACEPTION: # 2399, 2370.

        As you can see by markrite’s post, the post Vatican II CCC is needed to accurately correct errors and teach the true Doctrine of the Faith.

        • The logical fallacy of “the post Vatican II CCC is needed to accurately correct errors and teach the true Doctrine of the Faith” is twofold. First, if there were errors before, then what is to say there are no errors now? Second, books do not teach; people teach.

  6. We must never tolerate evil.
    We must never vote for evil politicians at any level of government – Federal, State or Local. We have a responsibility to check out all candidates for every elected office.

    Obamacare must be reviewed for requiring taxpayers to pay for abortions, voluntary sterilizations, and contraception.
    If people want to sin – do not ask others to financially support that sin. Pay for your own sins.

  7. Beyond happy. Woot. Woot. Woot.

    Taken from Life Dynamics

    Please enter ‘ The Blackmun Wall ‘ in your search engine.

    “The Blackmun Wall is a listing of the women killed by legal abortions, along with information regarding the circumstances of their death. We named this project after Harry Blackmun. Justice Blackmun was the U.S. Supreme Court justice who wrote the Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion and launched America’s Holocaust.

    The abortion picture painted by pro-choice advocates is that the US Supreme Court and Justice Harry Blackmun’s Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton decisions turned abortionists into doctors. Abortion clinic operators like Planned Parenthood like to pretend that the decision written by Justice Blackmun made abortions safe and legal, but the truth is that making abortion legal never made abortion safe. Abortionists are the bottom-feeders of the medical profession and abortion procedures jeopardize the health of the mother in order to terminate pregnancy. ‘Safe legal abortions’ killed every one of the women on this site.

    As you review this list, please remember that the hundreds of pro-abortion women listed here represents only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to abortion deaths. We have statistics from both state and federal reporting agencies documenting many more abortion-related deaths than are listed here. However, because we had no further details on them we were not able to include them.”

    • I checked out your site, Catherine…very sad ! PP is no different than nazi SS troops bent on ‘the final solution’ . I feel like I’m not doing enough!

  9. Wm. Hamilton says:

    Looks like CalCatholic was on top of this long before it reached this point. If only our bishops would put their weight behind causes like this when faithful laity like California Catholic bring it to light. Imagine a bishop picking up the phone to call a reporter with the “scoop” on this dirty story? But alas no — but thanks CalCatholic for leading the way!

    • Kenneth M. Fisher says:

      Wm. Hamilton,

      Most of our so called bishops are too busy lining up campaign events (Masses at which they are given front row seats are campaign events for these evil persons) with the Demoncrat Party to put their weight behind pro-life causes!

      If I sound angry, I AM!

      God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
      Kenneth M. Fisher

    YOU GO TO IT GAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LONG OVERDUE.

  11. The Marxist/liberal establishment wants to make abortion acceptable, even praiseworthy. When it is accepted by the majority of Americans, taught in schools and colleges, and even promoted by some of the liberal churches, the next campaign is to begin teaching that the physically and mentally handicapped will be targeted, after all, they produce nothing, don’t pay taxes and cost the government money. Next will be the elderly, they also produce nothing, don’t pay taxes, and cost the government money. They are paid Social Security and cost too much of the Obamacare dollars. In Obamacare, there will be “death panels” to decide what medical care the elderly should be allowed to receive. What do you expect from Obama and his henchwoman, the “Catholic” Kathleen Sebelius?

  12. Abeca Christian says:

    It would be a great justice if Planned Parenthood would pay for all their great evil!

  13. Matt, are you all there? I NEVER said (or meant to say) that Vatican II “supported abortion, contraception or sterilization.” Read my post again carefully and closely. What I referred to were the priests who in the AFTERMATH of Vatican II used the council and distorted so many of the documents that came out of the council to justify the Catholic USE of contraception. And there were many, believe me. Once again, I knew some of the catholic laypeople (friends and/or family known to me) that sought out these priests who would justify them IN their contraceptive practices, and kind of confirmed them in their error. Have you NEVER heard of the many distortions of Vatican II? Maybe not born yet, or residing on some distant planet? Matt, there was even a movement some time after the CLOSE of Vatican II called “the Reform of the Reform.” I think you may be a troll, but I’ll be charitable and not say it. In any case, we desperately NEED the prayers of the Immaculate Virgin for us, for between Obama being president and the ongoing moral subversion of the American people by him and his facilitators, She, the Co-Redemptrix of humanity, can help bring us back to the path of sanctity (and moral sanity.)
