Defund PP -- Back Sen. Vitter's amendment!

Sen. David Vitter has introduced an amendment to the Appropriations bill currently being debated in the Senate that would strip federal Title X "family planning" funding from Planned Parenthood. Email your senator now and inform him or her about why those in the know don't support Planned Parenthood.

If you can be brief, give an overview as to why Planned Parenthood is bad for women, children, and families. If you like to go into greater depth, pick one reason and stress it:

  • They perpetrate hoaxes and thus cannot be trusted
  • They facilitate sexual abuse of underage girls.
  • They've killed patients with their sloppy practices
  • They refuse to cooperate with government authorities investigating crimes
  • There is ample evidence that they defraud the taxpayers
  • They hire questionable doctors like this kiddie porn collector

    At this time of economic trouble, we don't need to be shoring up this abominable, dishonest, creepy institution.

    Here is my letter to my Senators:

    I am writing to ask you to join Senator David Vitter in his attempts to amend the Appropriations Bill so as to remove Title X funding from Planned Parenthood.

    I first learned what a seedy, dishonest organization Planned Parenthood is back in 1983, when my babysitter told me of how a San Diego Planned Parenthood had lied to her in order to get her to submit to an abortion her mother was forcing her to undergo. Since then I have encountered plenty of evidence that her experience was not a fluke.

    These problems are nationwide and include lying to patients, misleading the public, defrauding taxpayers, referring to dangerous abortion providers, and engaging in sloppy practices that have cost women their lives.

    The most recent evidence of how bad Planned Parenthood is comes from the series of "sting" operations by Lila Rose, showing how Planned Parenthood is willing to be complicit in statutory rape.

    Please stand up for women and families, and for the taxpayers who do not want their taxes going to harm women, children, and families.

    Though I doubt Arlen Specter will back us on this; he seems to vote straight Democratic party line when dealing with abortion and related issues.

    Stumbled across this site whilst reading up on the latest with Baby Shanice. God bless you! Hope you don't mind, but I borrowed some parts of your letter in my drafts to my senators.
    Dear Senator,
    Please join Senator David Vitter in amending the Appropriations Bill so as to remove Title X funding from Planned Parenthood.

    Planned Parenthood deceives women by: covering up instances of statutory rape; saying abortion is safe; saying 1/3rd of women have abortions (statistical skewing by those women that have multiple abortions); saying the Pro-Life movement shows misleading videos and pictures (it is the accuracy of the abortion act and the results that are "misleading" when they are shown on uncensored photo and video); and by hiding the proven medical and emotional effects caused by abortion (these effects are supposedly not real, regardless of any instances where they actually exist).

    Indeed, PP's business is absolutely predicated upon this deception.

    Until PP is ready to approach pregnancy from an unbiased perspective by offering real support through a joint effort with crisis pregnancy centers - fairly offering both sides of the crisis - I can not in good conscience allow my tax dollars to be sent to them.

    Please stand up for women and families in uncovering Planned Parenthood's immoral and unethical acts.
