In a fundraising letter to supporters, Planned Parenthood is proudly including a letter from their friend Judy Blume, famous children's author of "Blubber", "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret", "Forever", "Freckle Juice" and the "Fudge Books". Ms. Blume has been described as "puberty's bartender" (now there's a title we can all covet!) and some of her books have been the target of parent--not government--generated book bans from schools and public libraries. Ms. Blume and Planned Parenthood have much in common: chiefly, the robbing of childhood innocence. So, it's no wonder that the two would step out in this venture together.
It's the timing and wording of the letter that is so utterly disqusting, ironic and shocking: a Mother's Day appeal for contributions to an organization that robs motherhood, mocks womanhood and most of all destroys children: the very joy of motherhood! Here is the letter:
Everett, WA--40 Days for Life coordinator, Schola Frisinger reported early Friday afternoon, that the Everett Planned Parenthood office closed their doors early today.Mrs. Frisinger arrived at Noon to cover an hour shift of the ongoing prayer vigil of the 40 Days for Life campaign.“It appeared to be business as usual as clients were entering and exiting the clinic,” said Frisinger, “with one small exception to the usual: the door was propped open.”
At 12:15, a staffer closed the front door and then locked it.The Everett Planned Parenthood's normal business hours on Fridays are 8 A.M.--4:30 P.M., according to the Planned Parenthood website, which is consistent with the observations of 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers.It has never been observed that the clinic closes for lunch.One by one, Frisinger noticed staffers were exiting to their cars after the door was locked.Finally, Frisinger asked one of the staffers about what was happening and if they were closing."Yes," the staffer answered, "there's a very ugly smell in there."
40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion in America.40 Days for Life volunteers pray daily for an end to abortion in America, especially in their own communities, holding peaceful prayer vigils outside of local abortion clinics.The Everett 40 Days for Life campaign has held its third 40 day peaceful prayer vigil on the public sidewalk, directly in front of Planned Parenthood of Everett (1509 32nd St.).Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the world.
The current campaign in Everett is coordinated nationally, with 130 communities in 42 U.S. States, four Canadian provinces, Australia and Northern Ireland for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history. This spring’s 40 day campaign began on Wednesday, March 25 and continues through this Sunday, April 5. Prayer volunteers in Everett pray daily for the direct intervention of God, to discontinue the direct killing of innocent life that takes place on a daily basis inside of the Everett Planned Parenthood.
Washington State has a reported $9 BILLIONdeficit. Obviously, major cuts in spending are necessary.
But NARAL Pro-Choice WA is whining that the senate budget proposal includes a cut of $1 Million, and then goes on to point out that this isjust 10% of the state's budget for "family planning". This means, that if this proposal stands, our state government will STILL spend $9 million on what the abortion industry calls "family planning", otherwise known as abortion and contraception.
But even assuming that NARAL's figures are correct, $9 million dollars on government funded "family planning" is a bill we can't afford! We can't afford to continue this reckless spending. We can't afford $9 million or more on frivolous (pardon the phrase) sexual services like the distribution of condoms and harmful chemicals at public expense to facilitate promiscuity. And we certainly can't afford the results of this frivolous spending on reckless behavior: Increased spread of disease, unintentional pregnancy, social dysfunction, and an increased bottom-line profit for Planned Parenthood from the killing of prenatal children. This is not speculation. It’s what the money actually does.
The untold thousands of women who are still today, struggling to recover emotionally from the recognition that they participated in the killing of their own children is a tragedy of unaccountable proportions. For this reason alone, because it is being done with our tax dollars, requires our action.
If not for your pro-life convictions, if not for your pity on the young--and often minority--men and women who are unsuspecting victims of Planned Parenthood, then at least for your wallet, your bank account, your retirement. Contact State and House Budget leadership members listed below. Tell them to cut not just 10%, but ALL of the family planning budget. Tell them you don't want your tax dollars to go to programs you find morally objectionable.
NARAL is rallying the troops "in full force" now to save their "10%" from getting cut. Let's show our representatives that we outnumber the pro-abortion forces!

Live Action continues to expose Planned Parenthood's routine use of "judicial bypass" for minors in Arizona (where parental consent is required) seeking abortions and routine coverup of statutory rape.
Aside from the issue being exposed here: coverup of the felony of statutory rape, the video also exposes the problem with most "parental consent" laws, and how minors normally get around them through judicial bypass (which is usually a clause withing the parental consent bill itself).
