Thanks to Lila Rose and Live Action, Planned Parenthood's (PP) complicity in covering up statutory rape was exposed. Some states are even prosecuting the serial killing giant. The latest skeleton in PP's closet, though, is the fact that they knew what was going on in Gosnell's house of horrors and did nothing about it. Hey, he was an abortionist and no matter the level of butchery, abortion must be protected at all costs!
The Philadelphia Inquirer broke the story (below), no doubt inadvertently, about PP's knowledge of Gosnell's business. Author Morgan Zalot quoted the Philadelphia affiliate's CEO, Dayle Steinberg, admitting they encouraged Gosnell victims to report him to the health department. Gosnell has now become for PP proof of PP's "need." But are they much different? Hardly!
NOTED FEMINIST Gloria Steinem took the podium at the National Constitution Center on Tuesday night, addressing a crowd of 500 spanning four generations at Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania's annual Spring Gathering. Steinem's talk came at a time when illegal-abortion doc Kermit Gosnell's trial is highlighting the uglier side of the abortion issue in Philadelphia, and as state legislators are considering measures to limit abortion access under future government-funded health-insurance plans.Organizers said the event - and Steinem herself - would move the public's focus to the organization's work.
"The Gosnell trial has shifted the focus off the high-quality services we provide," said Dayle Steinberg, the organization's president and chief executive. "These are criminal, horrendous . . . acts and should be appropriately punished." Steinberg said that when Gosnell was in practice, women would sometimes come to Planned Parenthood for services after first visiting Gosnell's West Philadelphia clinic, and would complain to staff about the conditions there.
"We would always encourage them to report it to the Department of Health," Steinberg said as she sat with Steinem before Tuesday's events.
Of the Gosnell trial, Steinem added: "It makes more clear why you need Planned Parenthood."
Her speech, Steinem said beforehand, would aim to "remind us that reproductive freedom is a fundamental human right."
Steinem called the legislation being considered in Pennsylvania's Legislature "self-defeating." The bills would limit abortion covered by federally subsidized insurance to cases of rape, incest or those that are life-threatening.
"It's putting women's health at risk," she said. "It's like saying, 'You have freedom of speech, but only if you say one thing.' "
Steinem's address was punctuated at several points by bursts of applause and nods of agreement from the audience.
She praised politicians and men in attendance who support women's reproductive rights, but likened the battle to the fight for the right to vote and said she believes it's only about half-finished.
She called reproductive freedom the "key to equalizing males and females," and praised Planned Parenthood and its supporters.Gloria Steinham may love Planned Parenthood since, for feminists, they are temples celebrating the abortion blood sacrament. But one big problem for PP is that their organizations are butcher shops not much different from Gosnell's where women are lied to, treated like cattle, and denied the truth about abortion's risks and complications. PP also pimps minors for adult sex predators. Yes, they are champions of the cover-up!
"There's nothing on earth more important than what Planned Parenthood is doing," she said. "It is connected to everything else."
It's time to defund this ghoulish monster. They care about women like the fox cares about the chicken. STOP PLANNED PARENTHOOD!
