The following comes from a Feb. 28 item on National Review.
The president of the country’s largest abortion provider said she didn’t think the matter of when life begins is pertinent to the issue.
“It is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation,” Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos on Thursday. “I don’t know if it’s really relevant to the conversation.”
When pressed, Richards said that in her view life began for her three children when she delivered them.
She explained that the purpose of her organization is not to answer a question that “will be debated through the centuries,” but to provide options for pregnant women.

She may not know when life begins, but she definitely knows when it ends. She knows how gruesomely it ends for unborn babies.
From the scientific medical site: “Endowment for Human Development”.
Anyone who does not care when life begins, also will not care when life ends.
Life has no importance to them at all.
Only the here and now is important to them.
No one can justify the murder of innocent unborn children for the convenience of another.
If Planned Parenthood does not care when life begins, why do they oppose laws that state life begins at conception ? ? ? ?
Cecile Richards is right to be on the defensive.
Statistics from 2012 from the New York City Health Department show that over 40 percent of children that were aborted in 2012 in NYC were of African-American race, even though African-Americans are probably approx.15 percent of the New York City population.
Today, March 4th, CNS news announced that, in Georgia, statistics for 2010 according to a report by the CDC reveal that over 50% (53.6%) of abortions performed in that year in Georgia were African-American children, an astounding number.
Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood, and Cecile Richards should all be proud; Nancy Pelosi, too, who on Mar. 27th, will receive the Margaret Sanger award at a gala dinner celebrating abortion in Washington, DC. Well done, good and faithful servant!
It is really interesting, that’s Cecile Richards, a privileged white woman from a very wealthy background (she was the daughter of former Texas governor Anne Richards), who received an excellent privileged education (she attended Brown University, a fine ivy league school), who was deputy chief of staff to Nancy Pelosi, who is a trustee of the Ford Foundation,…it is very interesting that she is recommending usually poor, often minority, almost always young, frightened women, to abort their children. Oh: of course, she has 3 children.
The purpose of Planned Parenthood is to capitalize on a well developed market. Not to help pregnant women. Take the money out of the picture and there’d be no more desire to ‘help’ anybody. If not, why are there no mercy abortion clinics where folks just volunteer?
The supposedly cheap birth control (funded by the State) is nothing more than the seed investment needed for the cash cow of killing children.
God help Cecile Richards when she finally begins to think instead of feel. Or when her children perhaps gain the legal right to determine when they feel her life is still life and not just a drag on society and their own finances.
” Take the money out of the picture and there’d be no more desire to ‘help’ anybody.” = You are exactly right Ann Malley! Please read the following report:

A Special Report from Operation Rescue
By Cheryl Sullenger
Oklahoma City, OK – Millionaire Oklahoma abortionist Nareshkumar Gandalal “Naresh” Patel, who once faced charges of raping and sodomizing his abortion patients, is once again under investigation after Operation Rescue filed a five-count complaint against him with the State Attorney General’s office, the Oklahoma Health Department, and the Oklahoma Medical Board.
The complaints were based on documents and medical waste that had been discarded in a publicly-accessible trash receptacle near Patel’s Outpatient Services for Women abortion clinic in Oklahoma City. The material was received by Operation Rescue from an anonymous source on March 18, 2013.
1. Record-keeping violations and improper disposal of confidential information.
2. Mandatory reporting violations.
3. Improper disposal of medical waste.
4. Failure to protect and properly dispose of employment applications.
5. Failure to observe 24-hour voluntary and informed consent.
Patel is an abortionist with a long and particularly horrific history of Medical Board disciplinary actions, malpractice claims, and criminal cases. Nevertheless, financial documents found amid the medical records and waste indicate that Patel owns $39.4 million in real estate. His personal income exceeds $1.4 million annually. His net worth is listed at $28 million.

Options? = Murdering your developing son or your developing daughter is NOT an option. It IS an evil.
Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20 Douay-Rheims
There is a very heartwarming You Tube that has gone viral because it truly touched the hearts of thousands of viewers. Blessed Mother Teresa said the downfall of America will come through the sin of abortion. Right after she made that statement on a windless and beautiful day at Veteran’s Stadium in Long Beach, Ca. the tall flagpole waving the American flag, crashed down across the length of the entire stage right in front of Mother Teresa who also said that America had gained technology but lost God.
Mother Teresa lifted the dying out of the gutter in order to show them that they were made in the image and likeness of God. Who could ever call murdering your developing son or daughter made in the image and likeness of God an “option” to murder for convenience sake. Blessed Mother Teresa’s prophetic words about the downfall of America have come to pass. The answer is a return to loving and obeying God.

This lady is obviously BRAINLESS– and sadly, lacking a good MORAL and religious foundation for life!! Typical of today’s sad plight in America!! Where is the Catholic Church, and all the other religious groups, to help form a strong moral and religious foundation, for all Americans?? WHERE?? Without a solid moral and religious foundation, people simply cannot handle life very well, and will end up with NO MORAL CONSCIENCE to successfully guide their lives, and the lives of others they are responsible for!! So-called “freedom” for the ignorant— is a HORROR!! A NIGHTMARE!! Our Church and our country– are a DISASTER!! Day after day, the Vatican sits there, proclaiming its useless, ridiculous “Vatican II-style” “1960s Catholic hippie freedoms,” and look at all the millions of murders of helpless, unborn children!! Look at this TRAGEDY!! Does it not MOVE THE HEARTS OF THE POST-VATICAN II POPES?? Isn’t it worth some STRONG, STERN PUNISHMENT — such as EXCOMMUNICATION of politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sebelius, and Joe Biden, to start off with– plus many others?? Our Church has become so WEAK, so STUPID!! Millions of poor, morally and religiously illiterate lay people, sadly afflicted with the state of ignorance and Original Sin– simply CANNOT be expected to :guide themselves!: IMPOSSIBLE!! Due to the Church’s extreme irresponsibility in failing to guide the world to Christ, the entire world falls to pieces, in its ignorance, its “fallen” state of sin– and we now are entering, since the ignorant 1960s– a new historic era, a new “DARK AGES!!”
Don’t forget that one of the biggest enablers of the “Catholic” pro-abortion, pro-sodomite public figures, Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the the Knights of Columbus, sits on Vatican Commissions, and no one seems to say a word to him about his sellout of the Knights of Columbus. Few, very few, Knights are willing to call him and his cronies on it.
Money buys a lot of evil silence!
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika!
Viva Cristo Rey!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
Kenneth M. Fisher
Agreed! I, too, left the Knights precisely because of what Mr. Fisher has described. As regards abortion, Cecile Richards is in denial. She strikes me as conflicted, self-deluded, and proud. Let us pray for the conversion of sinners.
The only way to protect unborn children, is to have strong laws, as we used to– guided by a church-going Nation with a Christian conscience! Same with dope, premarital sex, and homosexuality! And NO ARGUMENTS, NO “WHAT-IFs,” NO SPECULATION, by untrained, ignorant, lazy, irresponsible people! Teach children correctly, with a firm “no” to immoral and dangerous situations! Don’t play with fire– you’ll get burned! And then, the whole house will burn down, murdering many others, too, right along with you!! Life is a very, very serious matter, not a “hippie plaything,” for rich, spoiled, ignorant, immoral people like Nancy Pelosi and Cecile Richards! HUGE matters that can lead people down a tragic path, are NOT for someone to “consider” or “choose,” ignorantly, for one’s selfish little tiny earthly existence!! The Church, and the secular law, (the secular law should be firmly grounded in God’s Laws!) must firmly tell you, on matters of sin and immorality, “NO!!” In God’s Name– “NO!!” And your parents, schoolteachers, and community leaders, must do the same! And that is the end of it!! Nice for Bl. Pope John Paul II to write books like “Evangelium Vitae” — but what is really needed, is solid Catholic teaching and daily practice, for everyone! From every pulpit, at Sunday Mass, we all should hear (as we used to!) only solid Catholic moral teaching, and priestly guidance to follow it! Plus, there should be lots of regular religious devotions, in the parish church and at home (rosary, novenas, Angelus, Divine Office, Eucharistic Adoration, etc.) to strengthen the spiritual life, for everyone! That way, Our Lord will reap a rich harvest of great success for His souls, struggling on Earth!!
What a complete and utter idiot. It seems that the Supreme Court’s “Roe v. Wade” concern over “viability” was meaningless and irrelevant. Having said this, Ms. Richards is correct in that the “Grand Feminist Debate” has moved beyond the notions of any “rights” of the pre-born, instead focusing on what is convenient to the mother, including the concept of “post-birth abortion.” Unfortunately, the feckless positioning of federal courts as super non-elective bodies makes any debate with Planned Parenthood virtually impossible. All a court has to do — think Judge Walker — is say that something is constitutionally infirm, and, voila, it is! No connection to any accepted legal reasoning is needed. America’s legal system is now fully corrupt, looking only to popular culture and acceptance as support for the value of a decision. Taking their cue from such intellectual vacuity, non-profits have learned that they also do not need any connection to rationality, to any accepted moral principles, to have their policies accepted. The result is a leadership cadre that is entirely inarticulate, and unlettered, relying on relationships with others of limited intellect, manners, and morals to gain legitimacy. Cecile Richards is simply vacant, an empty dress, demanding that any woman can have unfettered sex any time, for any reason, and get rid of any “kid” that biologically happens, for any reason. The Catholic clerical crowd of “give them mercy but not charity” would be all over themselves.
Reframe the debate when truth is obvious and overwhelming.
When faced with the overwhelming evidence that life begins at conception, Cecile Richards’ ‘talking points’ are strategy right out of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
Richards and her Planned Parenthood Abortion Provider Organization must take the American people as fools thinking we are to believe Richards’ statement. In her very own words, “in [Richards’] view life began for her three children when she delivered them.”
Is Richards actually publicly admitting to having no medical care or prenatal care during any of her three pregnancies for each of her children’s nine months of LIFE in utero before birth? Is she really so stupid as to think any of us believe that she did not seek out the best possible prenatal OB/Gyn care available during each of her pregnancies during which each of her unborn child’s life in the womb was being monitored and attended to? Are we to believe she only started to get care for them at birth?
While there are many ways to expose Planned Parenthood’s lies, here, Richards’ lies are trumped using her own Alinsky’s Rule book. Alinsky’s fourth rule–“Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules” — Cecile Richards’ statements don’t live up to her own rule book. Her statements are not credible. Her lies exposed . . . and in the end, it’s Cecile Richards who is foolish.
