The 'Women's Healthcare' Mask Falls at Planned Parenthood Hearing

By A.P. Dil­lon

Yes­ter­day at a House Over­sight and Gov­ern­ment Reform Com­mit­tee hear­ing, the Planned Par­ent­hood mask of ‘women’s health­care’ fell.

Hear­ing Key Points & Other Rel­e­vant Information

Despite NY Demo­c­rat Rep. Car­olyn Maloney’s attempt to res­cue Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards dur­ing the pro­ceed­ings, it was made clear that the group does not do mam­mo­grams. Richards her­self stated that to “the best of her knowl­edge” that none of the Planned Par­ent­hood facil­i­ties even had a mam­mo­gram machine. (Free Bea­con)

When ques­tioned on mak­ing state­ments that Planned Par­ent­hood did indeed do mam­mo­grams, Ceclie Richards stated, “we’ve never stated that we did”. Well, yes, they did say that they did mam­mo­grams. In fact, Richards said it her­self in a 2011 inter­view. (Weekly Stan­dard)

Accord­ing to the Planned Par­ent­hood annual report, 327,653 abor­tions were done in 2013 alone. (Free Bea­con)

Of those 327,653 abor­tions, 36% were black babies accord­ing to the CDC. That’s appar­ently 1,000 times more than blacks killed by law enforce­ment. (Soop­er­Me­x­i­can)

Richards was asked about the Cen­ter For Med­ical Progress (CMP) videos expos­ing mon­e­tary gain through the ille­gal traf­fick­ing of human organs labeled by Planned Par­ent­hood as ’tis­sue dona­tions’. Richards said the videos were “decep­tively edited” and “heav­ily doc­tored.” Her state­ments seem to imply she’s seen some or all of the videos.
How­ever, just before Richards’ tes­ti­mony, evi­dence was pro­vided by a dig­i­tal secu­rity and foren­sics firm called Coal­fire that the full length CMP videos were “authen­tic and have not been manip­u­lated”. (Daily Sig­nal)

Abor­tions make up 86% of rev­enue for Planned Par­ent­hood. Only 3% of their rev­enue comes from other ser­vices. (Twitchy)

There was the rev­e­la­tion of “exor­bi­tant travel expenses,” incurred by Planned Par­ent­hood. Included in the “exor­bi­tant” list was $622,706 for “blowout par­ties” with celebrity guests. Also included was $34.8 mil­lion for its NYC cor­po­rate office space and the sale of a 72k square foot condo “to Brook­field Prop­erty Part­ners for $69.6 mil­lion.”. (The Hill)

Richards also said, under oath, that no baby had ever been born alive and then aborted at a Planned Par­ent­hood facil­ity, a claim that was directly con­tra­dicted by recent wit­ness tes­ti­mony in front of the same com­mit­tee.” (The Hill - there’s a lot more at this link worth your time.)

The ques­tion is raised yet again, why does Planned Par­ent­hood need tax­payer dol­lars if “Planned Par­ent­hood gets about $700B in non­govern­men­tal funds…”? (Hot Air)

Richards is paid over $500,000 a year. She got a big raise of $240,000 in 2013. Rep. Chaffetz’s doc­u­men­ta­tion showed Richards mak­ing $590,000. Richards argued she only makes $520,000. Poor baby. Appar­ently, Richards also received $31,000 from allo­cated time to the Planned Par­ent­hood Action Fund.” (The Blaze)

Planned Parenthood’s Blood Money Goes To Demo­c­rat Defenses

Legal Insur­rec­tion noted from the hear­ing tes­ti­mony that Planned Par­ent­hood raised $127 mil­lion above its expen­di­tures last year.

The ques­tion then becomes, what does Planned Par­ent­hood do with their overage?

The answer is, they give it to Democ­rats or spend it attack­ing Demo­c­rat opponents.

Legal Insur­rec­tion also notes:

Out­side of abor­tions, Planned Parenthood’s pri­mary func­tion is fil­ter­ing money to and from Demo­c­ra­tic orga­ni­za­tions, giv­ing in excess of $574,000 to can­di­dates seek­ing fed­eral office alone.

The Planned Par­ent­hood Action fund has spent over $74,000 in 2015 — on attack­ing Clin­ton oppo­nents. Dark Money, any­one?

Planned Parenthood’s Action fund ranks 22 in the list of top polit­i­cal non-​profit spend­ing. The Action Fund’s total spend­ing reported to the IRS is $42,192,016. Of that, $8,250,439 was polit­i­cal spend­ing. Only $6,634,390 was reported to the FEC.

A valid ques­tion to be posed to Democ­rats now is, are our chil­dren “just a mat­ter of line items” in their cam­paign finance reports?

Yesterday at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, the Planned Parenthood mask of ‘women’s healthcare’ fell.

Hearing Key Points & Other Relevant Information

Despite NY Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s attempt to rescue Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards during the proceedings, it was made clear that the group does not do mammograms. Richards herself stated that to “the best of her knowledge” that none of the Planned Parenthood facilities even had a mammogram machine. (Free Beacon)

When questioned on making statements that Planned Parenthood did indeed do mammograms, Ceclie Richards stated, “we’ve never stated that we did”. Well, yes, they did say that they did mammograms. In fact, Richards said it herself in a 2011 interview. (Weekly Standard)

According to the Planned Parenthood annual report, 327,653 abortions were done in 2013 alone. (Free Beacon)

Of those 327,653 abortions, 36% were black babies according to the CDC. That’s apparently 1,000 times more than blacks killed by law enforcement.  (SooperMexican)

Richards was asked about the Center For Medical Progress (CMP) videos exposing monetary gain through the illegal trafficking of human organs labeled by Planned Parenthood as ’tissue donations’.  Richards said the videos were “deceptively edited” and “heavily doctored.” Her statements seem to imply she’s seen some or all of the videos.
However, just before Richards’ testimony, evidence was provided by a digital security and forensics firm called Coalfire that the full length CMP videos were “authentic and have not been manipulated”. (Daily Signal)

Abortions make up 86% of revenue for Planned Parenthood. Only 3% of their revenue comes from other services. (Twitchy)

There was the revelation of “exorbitant travel expenses,” incurred by Planned Parenthood. Included in the “exorbitant” list was $622,706 for “blowout parties” with celebrity guests. Also included was $34.8 million for its NYC corporate office space and the sale of a 72k square foot condo “to Brookfield Property Partners for $69.6 million.”. (The Hill)

“Richards also said, under oath, that no baby had ever been born alive and then aborted at a Planned Parenthood facility, a claim that was directly contradicted by recent witness testimony in front of the same committee.” (The Hill – there’s a lot more at this link worth your time.)

The question is raised yet again, why does Planned Parenthood need taxpayer dollars if “Planned Parenthood gets about $700B in nongovernmental funds…”? (Hot Air)

Richards is paid over $500,000 a year. She got a big raise of $240,000 in 2013. Rep. Chaffetz’s documentation showed Richards making $590,000. Richards argued she only makes $520,000. Poor baby.  Apparently, Richards also received $31,000 from  allocated time to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.”  (The Blaze)

Planned Parenthood’s Blood Money Goes To Democrat Defenses

Legal Insurrection noted from the hearing testimony that Planned Parenthood raised $127 million above its expenditures last year.

The question then becomes, what does Planned Parenthood do with their overage?

The answer is, they give it to Democrats or spend it attacking Democrat opponents.

Legal Insurrection also notes:

Outside of abortions, Planned Parenthood’s primary function is filtering money to and from Democratic organizations, giving in excess of $574,000 to candidates seeking federal office alone.

The Planned Parenthood Action fund has spent over $74,000 in 2015 – on attacking Clinton opponents. Dark Money, anyone?

Planned Parenthood’s Action fund ranks 22 in the list of top political non-profit spending. The Action Fund’s total spending reported to the IRS is $42,192,016. Of that, $8,250,439 was political spending. Only $6,634,390 was reported to the FEC.

A valid question to be posed to Democrats now is, are our children “just a matter of line items” in their campaign finance reports?
