In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood reveals that it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011 – a record year for the organization. According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687. Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer funding, according to a Susan B. Anthony List analysis of the report, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. The amount is 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual
Comments: Just shy of a million babies killed over the past 3 years, "government" funding at all-time highs... like a broken record; where exactly are the Republicans? Just amazing.
Wow...we have an epidemic of rape and incest going on in this country...and you´d think by 2013 doctors would be able to save the lives of more pregnant women along with the child.
Those are the reasons we MUST protect abortion "rights"...aren´t they?
No one would have abortions for selfish reasons would they? I mean, if they REALLY didn´t want children they would have irresponsible sex...or...they would avail themselves of one of the myriad methods of preventing conception from taking place.
Do not hit return a dozen times and waste page space. Staff has closed space.
334,000 abortions. That is a lot of "legal but rare procedures." (to quote Bill Clinton) I really didn´t think there was that much rape and incest. After all, isn´t that why the PP supporters say we must allow abortions? /s Disgusting, depressing, sad.
When I was young, my gyn switched over, without telling me, to be an abortion doctor. While I was in his office, the first and last time after switching, he explained to me that his clients (he operated in the wealthy part of back bay boston)were usually well-of young women who could not be bothered taking contraceptives and were repeat clients. And I have spoken to two women in their 60´s who had abortions after failed love affairs. Those two women say they knew they were killing a person. I don´t know why it is so important to liberals, men and women, to kill babies.
" if we can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?" "Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion" "Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Three quarters of its victims are women: Half the babies and all the mothers." ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta ~ personally I just fear the punishment ...
Maybe women are beginning to see that the present state of affairs in this country is not one into which they want to bring children. That doesn´t make abortion right -- the women should be using birth control and so should the men, but any way you look at this, it´s a holocaust.
The silence of “Christians” and “conservatives” is as deafening as the voices of the millions of innocent aborted babies. Without true repentance this nation will not escape judgment for allowing such atrocities to occur: over 3,500 abortions each day in the U.S. ...maybe we’re being judged already.
"I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever." Jefferson. We not only allow this slaughter of the innocents but we subsidize it. Oh Lord, what will befall us?
The department of health actually did a survey of pregnancies and disposition by age and ethnicity in the greater NY City. I suspect it was intended to document that high prenatal mortality was the decision of the mother and not poor medical care. The Hispanic community led in pregnancy rate and the percentage of babies brought to term. The non-Hispanic black community had the second highest pregnancy rate and by far the highest percentage termination rate (around 40%). This rate did not begin to go down until you got to women over 26. Margaret Sanger must be dancing in her grave.

PP is evil. Once a person, a culture, a government gives itself the power to murder any innocent life, Evil has won. The Lord promises forgiveness of sin to anyone who will repent and accept Him in Jesus´ name. Please, anyone who had created an aborted baby, seek forgiveness for the sin of murder.
I bring this subject up often, at church, just out in the general public and am shocked at how it doesn´t raise a few hackers. Society, as a whole, has harden their hearts to the cries of the helpless.
I hope Martha McCallum of FOX reads this article. During a report last year Ms. McCallum emphasized not once, but twice, that Planned Parenthood doesn´t perform abortions, it only counsels/refers abortion seekers to private providers. She was aided and abetted in this erroneous declaration by Judge Napolitano, who sat idly by and didn´t bother to correct her. Fair and balanced, you bet.
Let´s think about how many people are involved in one abortion: - the mother; - the dead baby; - the father of the dead baby; - the parents who paid for the murder; - the "friend" who drove the mother to kill her baby; - the grandparents of the dead baby; - the doctor who killed the baby; - the nurses and other attending who participated in the killing; - the administrative staff who scheduled the killing and follow up appointments; - the waste company who collected the remains of the baby...
and multiply that by millions. So, we are left with countless people who live their lives day after day defending this position and supporting their "right" to kill. To admit their sin would be too devastating so they dig their heels in and we´re left with the results: degradation of women, the family and culture. God have mercy on us.
#6 is spot-on...the PP number is about 25% of the abortions performed in the US each year...some data point to 600,000 Black babies being flushed down the toilet each year and that´s genocide...55million total US abortions since 1973 sounds like WWIII to me with all those killed being babies...
Yes it is, #40. But it´s coming for all of us. It´s coming for the abortionists. It´s coming for those that enabled it. And it´s coming for those of us that did nothing to stop it. Judgement is coming for all of us.
Judgement is here. Just remind all of those carelessly active lib women that they are most likely murdering there own DAUGHTERS. Then point out someone you know who is elderly, with no family to comfort or help them, in old age. Point out how lack of children & grandchildren is inconvenient when you can´t live on your own anymore. Explain that you can have inconvenience now or later - you are just choosing the timing. Then explain all of the ways that abortion has actually liberated MEN.
Americans have callously sat by and allowed the murder of 55 million human beings. By not effectively counter acting this atrocity we have all SINNED in the eyes of the Creator of the Universe. God has withdrawn His hand from this country and given us leadership that is bound and determined to run this country into the ground. Are we actually dumb enough to believe there is no connection? Prayers to restore this country to its former greatness are useless! America needs to repent and ask for forgiveness!
Every hour, 24/7/365 a kindergarten class of 20 American children are murdered by this atrocity euphemistically called ´Abortion´.
After it has been outlawed forever in all 57 states, we will marvel that this was ever allowed to take place. It will appear in history books alongside Slavery as a national shame to be expiated for-forever.
By my calculations, using 2012 census data, one out of every 20 women of child bearing age (14-45) had an abortion last year. I am suprised that the rape and incest epidemic in this country and the poor overall health of the female population hasn´t drawn national attention!
Thank you, democrat socialist party, for getting God out of our schools and the public square and teaching our children that morals are "relative"...
I´ve heard it explained (from my pastor) that half of my generation (I´m 28) is "missing". Half of my generation was legally murdered before they could draw breath. How can it be "alright" for a woman and doctor to kill a child if it hasn´t been born, but if someone was to shoot the mother in the stomach, killing both, it´s a double murder? I feel like I´m in an alternate reality.
With a Marxist POTUS who wholeheartedly supports unlimited abortion, to include partial birth abortion and infanticide, sitting in The White House the mass murderers at Planned Parenthood are hitting on all eight cylinders!
I told my kids in a CCD class (sixth graders) that their birthday is special, that their birth was a rite of survival b/c their parents loved them. I´ll never forget their faces - kids understand, why can´t politicians?
We have yet to figure out cause and effect. We have so many fewer workers paying into Social Security - why? They were never born.

Woman don´t realize how that infant inside of the womb fights for it life. The Baby moves constantly away from the danger until it can fight no more...The child feels pain and screams as it is ripped apart and the deed is done. The mother can go and fornicate again and again...I do pray for these women, I pray that God softens there hearts and through God they will open there eyes and realize ,It was there Child who was killed.
I saw something a couple of years ago that this country currently has problems financing SS and other programs due to the fact that at least 30 million taxpayers were not available because they had been aborted. Think about that fact for a while. Libs traded financial security for our government in order to kill unborn babies.
1 million babies in just 3 years... every woman should weep and every man should be filled with righteous anger. They are killing our future, they are stealing from us to do it, and they are proud of it all.
Those posting above about how we all have sinned in not stopping this mass murder, please tell us what we are supposed to do about it?
I pray for an end to abortion every time I pray. I support and vote for only pro-life politicians. I send money to organizations like National Right to Life and the Catholic Church ( the biggest pro-life organization on the planet ). I march as often as possible in the March for Life in DC. I have taken part in prayer vigils near abortion clinics and on street corners. I have adopted a child who could have wound up as ´medical waste´ if her birth mother had made a different ´choice´.
#34 is exactly RIGHT. God will indeed sort this out, and He is NOT HAPPY. Proverbs 6:16-10 says, "There are six things the Lord hates—no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family." (emphasis mine)
Folks, we can forget about Hitler. He was a piker...we´re now in Stalin/ChiCom territory. The people of this country allowed this to take place, and the people of this country re-elected a man whose party booed the re-introduction of God and Israel to their party platform (either by active vote or by staying home and not voting for the other person). God is NOT happy.
And I´ll go a step further - the church (at large) has blood on its hands as well. Yes, pastors and priests may say they´re against such, but in EVERY survey year after year, the church looks just like the world in EVERY category. Yes, there are people like #60 and those of us who have actively fought for morality and decency, and who have volunteered at and given money to crisis pregnancy centers, and who have worked in every manner possible to stand against this evil and persuade others to do the same. But we are few and far between, even in the church. God is NOT happy.
I hope quincy2 didn´t choose his pseudonym to commemorate Jack Klugman´s character on the "Quincy, ME" TV show. I´ve been watching the NetFlix collection of those shows from the 70s and 80s, and I´ve seen two episodes in which abortions were plot elements. Quincy had no interest in the aborted babies, but he was concerned about the dead "mothers" whose bodies reached his autopsy table.
One "mother" died because the abortionist was drinking before performing the abortion. Quincy knew and respected the abortionist "doctor", so he persuaded the fellow to join an Alcoholics Anonymous group of drinking doctors.
The other "mother" died after the abortionist dropped her off at an ER. The primary ER doctor was suspected of having mishandled her treatment, but she´d actually been treated by another doctor who wasn´t certified to work in an ER. Quincy spent a lot of the show agitating for better trained and certified ER doctors.
The West has succumbed to the curse of materialism and valued individual creature comfort over the survival of civilization. The West was not defeated by military prowess but by civilizational suicide.
I do not agree with abortions at will; however, lately I´ve been thinking. If they all had those babies, there would be massive spikes in the numbers of welfare babies and more $$ going out to baby mamas.
It´s sickening no matter how you look at it.
What is worse? Abortion or rape of the country? And of all those babies that would be born, what would they be born into? A life of drugs, stealing, and jail? What quality of life is that for them?
We are horrifed that the citizens of Germany allowed the holocaust to continue. Frequently we are reminded of the moral cancer that was slavery. Yet here we are, going about our business, ignoring the murder of hundreds of thousands of babies in our own country. A terrible milestone - 40 years - will be reached this month. Thousands will travel to Washington to march and,as always, the media won´t report it.
Dear God in heaven have mercy on us. This is devastating and horrific.. all those unique personalities lost to us.... I post a lot of pro-life articles on FB & twitter,too, sign petitions, support www.youhavealternatives.org... And pray. At the very least I know for a fact they´re all alive and in heaven as we speak. Every single one of them, praise God.
I recently learned two young women I know had abortions. They are both emotionally devastated.
Mother Teresa is right, #22, it kills the baby and destroys the conscious of the mother. My prayers are with them. They have been indoctrinated to believe there is nothing wrong with abortion. After they´ve had it, they realize differently.
I look at my children and am grateful I never had to make that choice. As a young woman, I am sorry to say, I probably would have made the wrong choice.
Despite the reprieve granted by President Obama, most of the 800,000 people in New Jersey who have been told their health policies can´t be renewed next year still don´t know whether they´ll get to keep their plans when it comes time to renew them in 2014. Insurance Commissioner Kenneth Kobylowski told a state Senate Commerce Committee hearing Thursday that not a single company has committed to renewing the old plans yet. He was invited to testify by state Sen. Nia Gill, the chairwoman of the committee and an Essex Democrat, about his decision last week to let insurance companies decide
Investigators probing the racist spray painting last month of the small-town Massachusetts home of an eighth-grade football player are now focusing on the 13-year-old boy´s mother. Andrea Brazier, mother of football player Isaac Phillips, is now being investigated as the sole suspect in a crime that shocked the town and nation when she blamed her son´s teammates for spray painting racist graffiti all over the family´s home. ‘Knights don’t need n*****s´ was found spray painted on the side of their Lunenburg home. The school cancelled the remainder of the Blue Knights´ season in response.
Robert Menendez beamed as a West New York School elementary school was named after him this afternoon. "I can think of no better tribute than having an elementary school named in my honor," the U.S. senator said at a ceremony at the 55th Street school, which previously was known as School 3. "It´s where it all began for me and I know my mother, who has passed away, would have been proud." (Snip) When he asked a crowd of sixth-graders sitting in the back of the auditorium what they dreamed of becoming some day, they shouted out career aspirations:
Despite the bumper-to-bumper decorations, Lynda Farley says she can see perfectly fine out of her minivan. And she was willing to drive more than 100 hours and 5,000 miles to prove it. The 62-year-old Kentucky woman made the nearly 12-hour, 800-mile drive from Edmonton, Ky., to Warren County "four or five times" in recent months to fight the $56 obstructed-view traffic ticket. Today, a New Jersey Superior Court judge in Belvidere tossed the ticket after ruling Farley´s view through the windshield wasn´t hindered by the political signs and figurines that cover her van.
Sydney — A brazen bird snatched a video camera that was recording crocodiles in northwest Australia and captured fascinating footage of its 70-mile journey across the country’s remote landscape. Wildlife rangers in Western Australia’s Kimberly region released video on Monday that reveals the sea eagle’s caper. The bird’s flapping wings can be seen as it grabs the device and takes off, and the eagle later poses for a selfie, poking its face into the camera lens. Rangers set up the motion-sensor camera along the Margaret River in May, hoping to record images of crocodiles. The camera, which is about
As toll increases go, the one that starts today is pretty moderate, at least for most of us: an extra 75 cents on your E-ZPass bill to drive a car across the George Washington Bridge. But truckers are being asked to dig a lot deeper — deep enough, they say, to cut into or even eliminate their profits. And some say they are now at a crossroads in terms of their willingness to take runs into and through the New York Metropolitan area. It will now cost those who pay cash to cross in the biggest rigs more than $100, and
A black Mercedes slows to a halt and the driver hurries to open the door for his celebrated passenger. The tip of a walking stick appears first, then, as it finds the pavement, lean fingers decorated with jewelled rings can be seen gripping its handle. After a few moments the stick is followed by its owner – a matriarchal old lady wrapped against the winter chill in a thick blue cardigan. (Snip) But don’t be fooled by her congenial smile and, above all, don’t get too close ... she is also Bulgaria’s grande dame of pickpocketing and proud of her
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
