Chelsea Clinton, some say as bad as her mother,
does virtue signaling about “abortion rights.”
WNDChelsea Clinton: ‘Un-Christian’ To Roll Back Abortion ‘Rights’
‘That’s unconscionable to me’
(Washington Examiner) Chelsea Clinton said that it would be “un-Christian” to roll back abortion protections granted by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.
“When I think about all of the statistics, that are painful, of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre- Roe, and how many women died, and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that,” Clinton said during a SiriusXM Progress Town Hall clip uploaded Thursday.
“That’s unconscionable to me. And also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also un-Christian to me,” Clinton said.
TWITTER’S ‘PUBLIC CONVERSATION’ DOESN’T INCLUDE PRO-LIFERS
Live Action told it would have to scrub its viewpoint on abortion
by BOB UNRUH
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claimed in testimony before Congress just days ago, “We see that news and entertainment are actually byproducts of public conversation, and we see our role as helping to not only serve that public conversation so that everyone can benefit … but also to increase the health of that conversation.”
Except, apparently, when the viewpoint is pro-life…

A June 2018 Gallup Poll found that although 60% of Americans support legalized abortion during the first three months of pregnancy, most oppose it in the later stages. Only 28% and 13% still support abortion once a pregnancy reaches, respectively, the second and third trimester. In the third trimester, the unborn baby is often viable outside the womb with medical support.
Put another way, the Gallup Poll found that 40% of Americans — 4 of every 10 — oppose legalized abortion. The population of the United States in 2018 is 327.123 million. That means 130.85 million Americans oppose legalized abortion.
It is bad enough that 4 of every 10 Americans believe abortion is immoral and should not be legalized. We are compelled by our government to give financial support, by way of our taxes, to the killing of unborn human beings.
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America, kills some 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every day. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion — $400 million of which came from taxpayers. As Senator Rand Paul said in his speech on the Senate floor:
“Planned Parenthood received over 400 million dollars of taxpayer money, the government with a wink and a nod tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions but everybody knows that the taxpayers are really cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills.”
LifeNews reports that on Thursday, August 23, 2018, another effort to defund Planned Parenthood — a pro-life amendment sponsored by Sen. Paul that would revoke taxpayer funding for the abortion mill — failed in the U.S. Senate by a narrow 45-48 vote.
Republicans hold a narrow 51-seat majority in the Senate. Were it not for four senators — two Republicans, and two Democrats who had touted themselves as pro-life — the amendment to defund Planned Parenthood would have passed. By their votes against the amendment, these four senators are forcing 130.85 million Americans to subsidize the killing of the unborn with our hard-earned tax dollars:
Neither Murkowski nor Collins has indicated if they will support U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Although both pro-abort anti-life senators voted to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch, they are facing huge pressure from abortion activists to vote against Kavanaugh.
The baby-killing mill that calls itself Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, an eugenicist.
Eugenics is the belief and practice at improving the genetic quality of the human population through the promotion of higher reproduction of people with desired traits, and reduced reproduction of people with less-desirable traits.
In July 2009, in a Sunday New York Times interview, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said:
Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe [v. Wade] was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.
Now, an investigative report by the pro-life organization Live Action reveals the same eugenic racism also animates Planned Parenthood.
Although the abortion mill is vocal about “Black lives matter” and condemns white police officers in Ferguson and elsewhere for allegedly targeting and killing unarmed blacks, Planned Parenthood gladly accepts donations specifically earmarked for the abortion of black babies.
An undercover investigator from Live Action called four Planned Parenthood (PP) offices — in Idaho, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Ohio — posing as a potential donor. In each bone-chilling call, he made his anti-black sentiments very clear.In each case, the PP representative enthusiastically told him PP would earmark his donation to specifically abort black babies.
As you read the transcripts of those phonecalls, just remember the subject is the deliberate MURDER of human beings, albeit tiny human beings. Then ask yourself how Planned Parenthood is any better than Nazi German holocaust.
The following is the transcript from Live Action’s audio tape of the call between the “donor” and Autumn Kersey, director of development of Planned Parenthood of Idaho.
Sound of phone ringing . . . .
PP: Good afternoon, this is Autumn.
“Donor”: Hello, Autumn. I’m interested in making a donation today.
Donor: What about abortions for the underprivileged minority groups? I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group. Would that be possible?
Donor: Like the black community for example?
Donor: OK. So, so the abortion could, could be, you know, I could give money specifically for a black baby that would, that’d be the purpose.
PP: Yeah, absolutely. Um, if you wanted to designate that you wanted your gift to be used to help an African-American woman in need, um, then we would certainly, uh, make sure that that gift was earmarked specifically for that purpose.
Donor: Great. Because I really face trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids being disadvantaged, you know, against, um, black kids. I just had a baby, I want to put it in his name, you know.
Donor: Um, you know ….
PP: Absolutely, that’s fantastic.
Donor: So that’s, that’s definitely possible?
PP: Oh, always, always.
Donor: You know, we just think, you know, the the the less, the less black kids out, the better.
PP: [laughs] Understandable, understandable. Alright, um, excuse my hesitation. I’m, I’m, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and ask, make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and I’m, I want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.
Live Action’s undercover investigation also called Planned Parenthood of New Mexico and spoke to Irene Gray, director of development. Here’s the transcript of their phone conversation:
PP: Hello, this is Irene.
Donor: Hi, um, I’m interested in, um, making a donation? I’d like to fund one abortion.
PP: Oh, OK!
Donor: I was wondering if that would be possible.
PP: Yes, we can definitely put that….
Donor: Um, can I make the donation specifically for a minority group?
PP: Like a specific group of color?
Donor: Yeah, yeah.
PP: Like, a group of ….
Donor: I mean, like, I want the abortion to be for an African-American baby.
Donor: And, I was wondering if that could be possible?
PP: The exact amount that we charge, right now, is $450 for an abortion.
Donor: OK. $450?
PP: Mm, hm. And, uh, we can definitely designate it for an African-American.
Donor: Wonderful! Um, if I wanted to fund multiple abortions, could you also specify that this could be done for, um, a specific group?
Donor: Great, great. Um, well, little excited, you know, because I really face trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be, um, uh, disadvantaged, um, you know….
Donor: Against, against, um, against blacks with, in college and, you know, the less, um, the less blacks out there, the better, so….
PP: Yeah, yeah, it’s a strange time for sure. [Laughs]
PP: So, OK.
Donor: Thank you so much.
PP: No problem!
Donor: And you’ll be receiving a check in a few days!
Here’s the transcript of the phone conversation between Live Action’s undercover investigator (“donor”) and Sue Riggs, vice president of development of Planned Parenthood of Oklahoma:
PP: Hello, this is Sue. May I help you?
Donor: Hi! Uh, Sue, I’m interested in making a donation?
Donor: So, could, could, would it be possible for me to donate that money specifically for these, these minority groups, so that they could have access to abortions?
PP: Yes, it would be.
Donor: Wonderful. Then could I specify that abortion be done, uh, those abortions be done for a specific minority group, or how does that work?
PP: If you wish, you can.
Donor: OK. So, so, for example, the black community in Tulsa. Would it be possible to give the money specifically for that?
PP: You sure can.
Donor: Wonderful. Great. The abortions will be done specifically for the, the black community abortions.
PP: I can, I will mark it in such a way that definitely it will.
Donor: On a black baby?
Donor: Thank you, great.
Donor: Uh, so, can I give you my credit card number?
Here is the transcript of the phone conversation between “Donor” and Lisa Hutton, administrative assistant of Planned Parenthood of Ohio:
PP: Planned Parenthood administration, this is Lisa.
Donor: And who am I speaking with now?
PP: My name is Lisa Hutton.
Donor: Lisa Hutton, what’s your position?
PP: Administrative assistant.
Donor: OK. When I underwrite abortions, does that apply to minorities too?
PP: If you specifically want it to underwrite an abortion for a minority person, you can target it that way. You can, you can specify that that’s how you want it spent.
Donor: OK, yeah, ’cause there’s, so, there’s definitely way too many black people in Ohio, so I’m just trying to do my part.
PP: [Laughs] OK. Whatever.
Donor: Well, blacks especially need abortions too. So that’s what I’m trying to do.
PP: Well, for whatever reason, we’ll accept the money.
871 black babies are aborted every day in the United States(Guttmacher Institute), but not a word from the Reverends from Hell Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, or from the black president and black first lady in the White House. Don’t black lives matter?
God bless you, Lila Rose!
Live Action is a youth-led pro-life non-profit organization founded in 2004 by a 15-year-old Catholic girl named Lila Rose, Rose, now 26, remains Live Action’s president. Live Action has undertaken many undercover investigations of late-term abortion doctors and of Planned Parenthood’s racist and sex-selective abortions and sex trafficking. Rose has received many recognitions and awards, including being included by National Journal in their 2013 list of “The 25 Most Influential Washington Women Under 35.”
Rep. Joseph “Joe” Patrick Kennedy III (D-Massachusetts), 37, is the son of former Rep. Joseph Kennedy II and grandson of Bobby Kennedy, brother of former President John Kennedy.
An heir to his great-grandfather Joseph Kennedy’s fortune, Joe #3 holds substantial investments in trusts and is estimated to be worth between $20 million and $60 million.
On January 30, 2018, a drooling Joe #3 gave the Democrat Party’s response to President Trump’s State of the Union address.
A practicing Catholic with a sweet tooth, in 2017 Joe #3 gave up sugary snacks for Lent. But he and his wife, health policy lawyer Lauren Birchfield, are stridently pro-abort, never mind the fact that the Catholic Church calls abortion an intrinsic — i.e., non-negotiable — evil.
Below is a pic of the couple at a pro-abort rally, garbed in pussy-pink T-shirts that say: “I stand with Planned Parenthood” — the same Planned Parenthood abortion mills that harvest and sell aborted babies’ body parts and organs, including the brain of a baby whose heart was still beating when his brain was “harvested”.
By the way, there are claims on the net that Joe Kennedy III lives in a mansion surrounded by a wall (see below) — evidence of his hypocrisy when he grandly proclaimed in his Democrat Party response: “Build a wall and my generation will tear it down.”
However, Snopes says:
The house is not Joe’s but was purchased in 1933 by great grandfather Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., which was sold by the Kennedy family in 1995.
The house is located in Palm Beach, just a few feet from the ocean. The wall is a seawall designed to keep the ocean from damaging the property.
Joe Kennedy III is pro-gun control, pro-gay marriage, pro-illegal migrants, and calls the Republican health care reform “an act of malice,” while supporting Planned Parenthood’s acts of true malice and evil — the abortion killing of little, innocent, defenseless human beings and harvesting their organs.
Demorats: Making sure somebody pays for (my body) my choice.
From MyNorthwest.com: The Washington State Senate approved a bill that would require health insurers covering maternity care to also cover abortions.
“Washington has long led the way on this issue, and passing the Reproductive Parity Act (RPA) will be yet another example of that,” said state Sen. Steve Hobbs (D-Lake Stevens), who introduced the bill this legislative session in Olympia. “It should pass, and we should move quickly on it because these days it’s really anybody’s guess as to what the Trump administration will or won’t do next.”
Hobbs, along with Rep. Eileen Cody (D-Seattle), in the House, have introduced this bill in the upper chamber for years, but it hasn’t passed despite some bi-partisan support. When it was first discussed in 2012, it failed 26-23. With Democrats recently taking control of the Washington state Senate, Hobbs believes that the shift in power will lead to swift passage.
Washington state already has laws in places that protects reproductive health rights; voters passed an initiative in 1991 that would keep protections in place for women in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned. What SB 6219 focuses on is affordability of coverage. The average cost for an abortion is around $650, and the monthly income of a full-time, low-wage worker in the Puget Sound region is $1,400, according to The Northwest Abortion Access Fund – an organization that helps women pay for care. Activists say that this bill is a step forward to help alleviate the cost of an abortion for many women so they don’t have to seek additional financial help. It would also set up a type of reimbursement program for women — including non-citizens — without insurance or who are on Medicaid. But some families will still be left with high deductibles. Also, when a woman passes a certain point age of pregnancy, the cost increases. But right now, Rogers (I don’t know who this Rogers person is; not previously identified in this article) says with facing potentially harmful federal restrictions under the Trump administration on funding for legal abortion, the RPA would make sure that state law applies as broadly as possible without violating those restrictions. Some believe taxpayers aren’t responsible for funding this
Human Life of Washington — a right to life group — strongly opposes RPA. Its government relations expert Sarah Davenport-Smith says it forces taxpayers who are against contraception and abortion to pay for something they don’t support.
According to Davenport-Smith, while abortions and abortifacient drugs are legal, there is no requirement for taxpayers to fund them. Why supporters think this needs to pass now
The political climate is also why the bill covers several rules for birth control access, said Executive Director Tiffany Hankins of NARAL Pro-Choice Washington, a chapter of a national organization that supports women making personal decisions about their reproductive health.
Many of these rules ensuring contraceptive equity and affordability already exist through the Washington state insurance commissioner’s office. Under their rules, most health plans currently must cover Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive methods prescribed by their in-network medical provider, and this is without people having to deal with copays, deductibles, and coinsurance.
But having these rules in a bill would strengthen those rules. People could see changes as soon as 2019 if the bill passes. It specifically applies to a health plan issued or renewed on Jan. 1, 2019.

Phil Ting fighting for baby killers Planned Parenthood and to get more taxpayers’ money.
Of course they do. Greedy bunch they are.
From SF Gate: California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall that companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state.
A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento, and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle-class families. “Trump’s tax reform plan was nothing more than a middle-class tax increase,” Ting said in a statement. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals. This bill will help blunt the impact of the federal tax plan on everyday Californians by protecting funding for education, affordable health care, and other core priorities.”
As a constitutional amendment, the bill would require approval from two-thirds of the Legislature to pass, a difficult hurdle now that Democrats have lost their supermajority. If passed and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, it would then go to voters for final approval.
Democrats lost their supermajority following resignations of two Assembly Democrats, Matt Dababneh of Encino (Los Angeles County), and Raul Bocanegra of San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles County) amid sexual misconduct allegations. Another Assembly Democrat, Sebastian Ridley-Thomas of Los Angeles, resigned citing health issues. In the Senate, Democrat Tony Mendoza of Artesia (Los Angeles County) is taking a leave of absence pending an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations.
California Democrats have been exploring ways to help those in the state who could end up paying higher federal taxes next year under the Republican tax overhaul. The GOP overhaul caps state income taxes and local property tax write-offs on the federal income tax return at $10,000, a move expected to hurt high-local-tax states such as California, where the average state and local tax write-off in 2016 was $22,000.
State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León introduced legislation this month that would allow Californians to get around the state and local tax cap with a voluntary donation to a charitable fund created by the state of any amount of owed taxes above $10,000. That donation — in lieu of taxes — would allow donors to write off the gifts on their federal tax returns.
Fusion GPS is a commercial DC-based intelligence firm that conducts opposition political research on political candidates, such as on Mitt Romney. The company was hired by Planned Parenthood (PP) to investigate pro-life activists who took a series of “sting” videos showing PP selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers.
In the 2016 presidential campaign during the GOP primary elections, Fusion GPS was first hired by Republicans, rumored to be RINO Sen. John McCain, to conduct “opposition research” on Donald Trump, which ended when Trump became the GOP’s presidential nominee. The DNC (Democratic National Committee) and Hillary Clinton then hired Fusion GPS to continue digging up “dirt” on Trump. Fusion GPS, in turn, hired former British MI-6 agent Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Trump, which became infamous for its entirely-fake allegation that Trump — a self-described “germophobe” — had engaged Russian prostitutes to urinate (“golden shower”) on a Russian hotel bed supposedly used by Obama.
But Fusion GPS didn’t employ just Chris Steele. On November 21, 2017, Fusion GPS’s documents were unsealedas a result of a ruling by D.C. district court judge Richard Leon in a lawsuit over the firm’s bank records.
As reported by Luis Orozco for Conservative Daily Post, the unsealed documents reveal new details of payment transactions made to and by Fusion GPS, as well shed new light on requests made by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence concerning the firm.
Altogether, Fusion GPS’s bank documents list 112 payment transactions involving the firm, most of which are redacted, except for transactions between Fusion and two law firms on two Russia-related projects. The law firms are:
(1) Perkins Coie, which represented the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, paid Fusion GPS a total of more than $1.4 million in 2016 for “opposition research” on Donald Trump:
$1,024,408 between May 24, 2016 and Dec. 28, 2016.
$365,275 on the eve of the election on Oct. 28, 2016.
A payment after the election in late December 2016.
(2) BakerHostetler, which paid Fusion GPS $523,651 between March 7, 2016 and Oct. 31, 2016, to investigate a London-based banker, Bill Browder, who helped push through the Magnitsky Act — a sanctions law vehemently opposed by the Russian government. The $523,651 came from a Russian businessman convicted of tax fraud and money laundering.
Fusion GPS founding partner and former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson compiled the research for Fusion’s anti-Browder project, working closely with a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya, who gave Simpson’s research to Russia’s prosecutor general Yuri Chaika. Veselnitskaya also shared Simpson’s research, in the form of a 4-page memo to Donald Trump Jr., with whom she met in the Trump Tower in June 2016 — a meeting that was arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.
As Conservative Daily Post‘s Luis Orozco points out, opposition research firm Fusion GPS “is the common denominator linked to two different schemes used to damage the Trump campaign” — “one of the main weapons . . . to prevent the Republican victory.”
There are two more interesting things that are revealed in the un-redacted Fusion GPS financial transactions:
Strangely, the transaction list doesn’t show payments that Fusion made to Chris Steele, although it is known that he was paid a total of $168,000 for his work, which lasted from June 2016 until the presidential election.
Fusion GPS´s unsealed documents also reveal a request by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for records of:
Five payments made by Fusion for “research” and to a mysterious “Russia expert.”
Nine payments made by Fusion to three journalists who had reported on Russia issues.
A memo filed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on November 21, 2017, shows that the committee’s lawyers are seeking the records of nine Fusion GPS payments to three journalists, all of whom have reported and been quoted in articles related to Russia. But the identities of the three journalists are redacted.
Please contact Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chair of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and demand that the American people have the right to know the names of the three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS — hired by the Democrats to dig up “dirt” on Trump — to do who knows what. Below is Nunes’ contact info.:

By the way, a recentDaily Caller investigation found a hitherto unknown association between Fusion GPS and Tom Steyer, a billionaire financier and Democrat Party operative who is funding the $20 million campaign to impeach President Trump.
In 2012, Steyer hired Fusion GPS and its founding partner, Glenn Simpson, to conduct an investigation to help pass ballot initiative Proposition 39, aimed at closing a tax loophole for California businesses and funneling money to so-called clean energy projects.
Prop 39 was a success, which made Steyer a rising star in the world of Democratic politics. He was the party’s most generous donor in the 2016 election cycle — giving more than $90 million to various political action committees. Steyer is said to be considering running for political office. In August 2015, he launched the Fair Shake Commission on Income Inequality and Middle Class Opportunity, purportedly an implicit announcement of candidacy for the 2018 California gubernatorial race. (Lots more on Steyer, the “green” or environmental hypocrite here.)
