Obama, Clinton Tweet in ‘Celebration’ of 100th Year of Planned Parenthood

Hillary Clinton pdWASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton both Tweeted in celebration of the 100th year of the abortion and contraception giant Planned Parenthood on Sunday, asserting that it has empowered women to control their destinies.

Oct. 16th marked a century since the organization, founded by feminist and eugenics supporter Margaret Sanger, first opened its doors.

“For a century, Planned Parenthood has made it possible for women to determine their own lives. Here’s to another #100YearsStrong,” Obama Tweeted, generating 87,000 likes.

His words were re-Tweeted by Clinton, who also wrote, “From birth control to cancer screenings, Planned Parenthood has provided care for millions. That’s worth celebrating—and protecting.”

She likewise shared a post by Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, who cheered Clinton for working for personal “autonomy.”

“Thank you @HillaryClinton & everyone fighting for autonomy & health for all. 100 years, and we’re just getting started. #ActStrong,” Richards wrote.

In a fuller public statement recognizing the organization’s 100-year-mark, Planned Parenthood applauded what it perceived as the achievements of sending more women into the workforce and decriminalizing abortion.

“One hundred years of care, education, and activism have changed everything. Women are now half the workforce and more than half of college students. They’re CEOs, engineers, astronauts, artists, Supreme Court justices, and senators,” it said. “We’ve made incredible gains during our first century. Birth control, once out of reach, is widely available. Abortion, once a crime, is safe and legal.”

Senate Democrats made similar assertions just weeks prior in a proposed national resolution celebrating Planned Parenthood, as it contended that the organization’s services have helped to grow the economy by keeping women in the workplace instead of staying home caring for children.

“[B]reakthroughs in women’s health care, such as the legalization and expanded availability of birth control, have been named one of the biggest economic advancements for women in the past 100 years,” the resolution read. “[C]hanges in women’s access to reproductive health care have led to cultural shifts: in the United States, women are now nearly half the workforce, the sole or primary breadwinners in 40 percent of homes, and more than half of the college students.”

As previously reported, Planned Parenthood, originally known as the American Birth Control League, was founded by Margaret Sanger, a feminist who decried what she characterized as women serving as “incubators.”

“Woman’s role has been that of an incubator and little more. She has given birth to an incubated race,” she wrote in “Woman and the New Race.” “In the mass, she has brought forth quantity, not quality. The requirement of a male dominated civilization has been numbers. She has met that requirement.”

“This is the dawn. Womanhood shakes off its bondage. It asserts its right to be free. In its freedom, its thoughts turn to the race. Like begets like. We gather perfect fruit from perfect trees,” Sanger said. “The relentless efforts of reactionary authority to suppress the message of birth control and of voluntary motherhood are futile. The powers of reaction cannot now prevent the feminine spirit from breaking its bonds. ”

Sanger, who was a staunch advocate of eugenics, also made a correlation between birth control and the purification of the races, referring to those with disabilities as being “morons,” “idiots” and “imbeciles.”

“Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives,” she wrote in the aforementioned publication. “If we are to make racial progress, this development of womanhood must precede motherhood in every individual woman.”

In “The Pivot of Civilization,” Sanger said, “’Constructive’ eugenics … shows us that we are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all—that the wealth of individuals and of states is being diverted from the development and the progress of human expression and civilization.”

According to its annual report released at the end of December, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 abortions nationwide during the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

    Basically, PPP has told women that they can sacrifice their unborn babies for “incredible gains”. The truth is those women are being compensated in blood money for sacrificing their unborn babies for “incredible gains”…especially PPP. Aside from turning away from the laws of God Almighty, the worst thing that ever happened to this country was the decriminalisation of abortion.

    The following comes from an NBC News article entitled “CIA Prepping for Possible Cyber Strike Against Russia“…

    The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

    Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.

    The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation.
    At the end of last week, Vice President Joe Biden also publicly threatened the Russians…

    On Friday, Vice President Joe Biden met “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd for an interview that has raised serious concern in Russia.

    Without bothering to question the authenticity of the claims, Todd took the allegations of Russian hacking at face value, opening his interview with a loaded question: “Why haven’t we sent a message yet to Putin?”

    After a moment of stunned silence, Biden responded, “We’re sending a message. We have the capacity to do it and it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”

    When Todd asked if the public will know a message was sent, Biden replied, “Hope not.”

    NEW YORK, NY—In honor of the organization’s 100th birthday, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards announced Wednesday a bold new program, expanding a woman’s right to choose by offering a plethora of post-birth abortion services for fetuses from birth all the way up to eighteen months old.

    “A woman should be able to determine her own destiny,” a smiling Richards told reporters. “That’s why we’re now allowing women to bring in any clump of cells younger than eighteen months, and they can count on us to be their advocate and take care of the problem right away.”

    “Allowing anything less or even disagreeing with our new policy is a cold, heartless attack on women,” Richards warned.

    In response to a question as to the legality of killing young children under the banner of “women’s reproductive rights,” Richards simply laughed and replied, “Are you in favor of an innocent woman being enslaved to parenthood just because she has the result of a pregnancy living in her home?” further adding that President Obama had already expressed his support of the new procedures, calling them a “brave and necessary act to protect the rights of women everywhere.”

    “Thank you PP for being a champion for women! #100MoreYears” tweeted presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in response to the news.

  • Just think there would no Planned Parenthood and infanticide (wrongly termed “abortion’) would be all-but unheard of had the constitutional framers (like their 17th-century Christian Colonial predecessors) established government and society upon Yahweh’s moral law, including Exodus 21:22-23.
