Lesser Angels of Death

Conversations with Mengele’s heirs.
Godwin’s Law is suspended when the behavior being compared is sufficiently congruent.

  • Medical “professionals”? Check.
  • Subsidized by the State? Check.
  • Human vivisection? Check.
  • Laughing about the dismemberment procedure? Check.
  • Awareness of the moral implications?

Dr. Lisa Harris, the medical director of Planned Parenthood of Michigan:
“Given that we actually see the fetus the same way, and given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here. . . . Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that.”

Check.

One difference: Mengele wasn’t doing it for profit.

The applied fungibility of taxpayer subsidies for abortion

I was looking for data to quantify abortion subsidies derived from taxation, especially for Planned Parenthood. The money is inarguably fungible, but just how much of it actually goes to abortions?

At Forbes I found this – which far exceeded my ambitions.

The article is an overview of all tax dollars going to abortionists, and there is a specific bit on Planned Parenthood. It is a thoughtful and thorough analysis. The discussion of a PP Michigan clinic is instructive as to creative accounting practices.

Cecile Richards lied, yet again, when she told Congress PP makes no profit from federal subsidies. And no one asked about State contributions to her eugenics project.

Can you say "fungible?"

Over the past five years Planned Parenthood has funneled $22 million to its political affiliate, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

And, over the past 5 years, they’ve received $2.5 billion in Federal funding. If I were a Democrat in the House or Senate, I’d be wondering why I didn’t get more back.

Planned Prevarication

Watching the CSPAN video of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Cynthia Lummis, (R) Wyoming, elicits the following from Richards (Start at 00:54:33):

  • Mammograms provided – None. 
  • Abortions – three percent of procedures, eighty six percent of non-government revenue. (A question I asked in early August)
  • Taxpayers fund over forty percent of PP. 
  • $5.1 million in annual travel expenses. 

The fungibility issue is raised, but Richards dissembles.

Lummus: “If taxpayer dollars are being used to free up services that you provide…
Richards: “We don’t get a federal subsidy…”
Lummus: “Could you function on non-federal dollars?”
Richards: “We don’t make any profit off of federal money.”

They just pay expenses with your money. We all know that has nothing to do with profit.

Keep watching Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, (R) Utah, after Lummis five minutes are over. He asks if Richards will provide the information, “How many of your affiliates receive the majority of their revenue from abortion?” requested by Lummis.

Richards at 01:01:11 “I don’t want to commit to anything that I don’t want you to have.”

Did she really just say that?
