Now is the Time to De-fund Planned Parenthood, More shocking videos

It’s time to finally de-fund Planned Parenthood. But we need to seize the moment. We need everyone’s help. The political climate is right and solid evidence has continued to mount:

Live Action has previously released more than a dozen hidden camera videos from ten states. This body of visual evidence shows several alarming patterns of illegal Planned Parenthood activities including cover-up of sexual abuse of minors, the skirting of parental consent laws, citing unscientific and fabricated medical information to manipulate women to have abortions, and Planned Parenthood’s willingness to accept donations earmarked to abort African-American babies.

Just this morning Live Action released yet another stinging undercover video (below) - yes, a different one than the new and completely shocking one I posted yesterday - that further confirms how extensive and corrupt the Planned Parenthood organization has become. These instances don’t appear to be anomalies, but seem to be fairly common occurrences throughout much of Planned Parenthood.

It’s time to de-fund them. No organization like this should be receiving over 300 million of our tax dollars every year.

Please blog about this, post to your Facebook, Tweet it, email it and contact your U.S. Senators and Reps. And then do it again tomorrow. There is enough momentum here that if we all give it the proper push, attention and outrage that it deserves we can get congress to take away Planned Parenthood’s U.S. tax payer subsidies. And any politician who defends Planned Parenthood or advocates for their funding should be run out of office. What an amazing victory this would be for all Americans. Women and their babies deserve much better than this. And we shouldn’t have to be complicit in it by helping to pay for it.

There is also an Expose Planned Parenthood Webcast, this Thursday (tonight), February 3rd at 8:30 PM, Eastern Time. Pro-life leaders will be discussing the next steps. Please tune in and get involved in fueling this important momentum to help women and their unborn children.
