Smithsonian ‘Girlhood’ exhibit features Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and a transgender reality TV star

The Smithsonian Institute declared 2020 to be the “Year of the Woman,” to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. The Smithsonian Institute celebrated the “Year of the Woman” by opening an exhibition at the National Museum of American History titled “Girlhood (It’s Complicated)” on Friday.

The description by the Smithsonian Institute on its new “Girlhood (It’s Complicated)” exhibit, “The history of girlhood is not what people think; it is complicated. Young women are often told that girls are ‘made of sugar and spice and everything nice.’ What we learn from the past is that girls are made of stronger stuff. They changed history.”

The 5,000-square-foot gallery features five sections: Education (Being Schooled), Wellness (Body Talk), Work (Hey, Where’s My Girlhood?), and Fashion (Girl’s Remix).

The “Girlhood” exhibit has its own page on the website for the National Museum of American History, where there is a “Talking About Sex” section. There are subsections, including “Teaching about Reproduction,” “Sex Ed vs. Abstinence,” “Experimenting on Girls of Color,” and “Birth Control.”

Near the top of the page is a biography of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, that reads, “Margaret Sanger, a writer and nurse, advocated for girls to know and control their own bodies – but only certain girls. Sanger believed that women who were poor or who had mental disabilities should not have children, in order to promote a ‘healthy’ society.'”

The Smithsonian Institute calls Sanger “complicated.” “While eugenics was popular in Sanger’s time, today such ideas are offensive for devaluing certain lives. How do we reckon with this important but complicated historical figure?”

The “Girlhood (It’s Complicated)” website features a “Not Checking the Boxes” section that starts off by saying, “Sometimes gender isn’t revealed at birth.” The section discusses a person named “Ryan” who “was born intersex.”

“Growing up, he was called by a name traditionally given to girls. But he adopted his name because he felt he possessed ‘a girl body and a boy brain,'” it says.

“Ryan’s story shows how checking boxes as male or female is limited,” the Smithsonian Institute states. “Those boxes could never fully capture the complex realities of one’s gender and sexuality.”

The “Embracing Yourself” section features Jazz Jennings, a transgender reality TV star of the TLC show “I Am Jazz.”

“She shares her girlhood with millions of Americans on television and reminds us that girls can be assigned male at birth and that girlhood comes in many forms,” the Smithsonian Institute says. “Jazz always knew she ‘was a girl trapped in a boy’s body.’ As a toddler, she felt a roar of emotions at not being able to communicate what she was experiencing.”

In the “News and Politics” section of the website, it pays tribute to Naomi Wadler, an anti-gun activist who spoke at the 2018 “March for Our Lives” event at age 11.

Abortion Baltimore planned parenthood Black Lives Matter Black preborn lives matter BLM Intelwars Planned Parenthood

Pro-life activists converge on Baltimore Planned Parenthood, paint ‘Black Preborn Lives Matter’ on street outside

Pro-life activists painted “Black Preborn Lives Matter” outside of a Baltimore, Maryland, Planned Parenthood on Saturday.

Activists arrived to begin the day’s work around 5 a.m. local time.

What are the details?

As reported by The Washington Times, multiple groups of pro-life activists — Students for Life of America, the Frederick Douglass Foundation, and the Human Coalition — banded together to paint the message on the street outside of the facility on Howard Street in Baltimore.

Following the job, the demonstrators held up a sign reading, “President Trump, Help Us Save Lives. Defund Planned Parenthood.”

In a statement, the Students for Life of America said “About 13% of American women are black, but they submit to over 38% of all abortions. This is exactly why we say #BlackPrebornLivesMatter. Black women and their preborn children MUST be protected from the atrocity of abortion.”

In August, the groups informed Democratic Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young in a letter of their intention to paint the phrase on the street, citing previous instances of activists painting streets with phrases such as “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police.”

The groups reasoned that Young should permit such a move in light of previous demonstrations.

“Your original decision to paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the street may very well be government speech,” a portion of the letter read according to the outlet. “However, your decision to allow private citizens to paint additional messages such as ‘Defund the Police’ and ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ and to intervene on behalf of a public display of another’s speech indicates that public areas are now an open forum for free speech.”

In August, Washington, D.C., authorities prevented the groups from painting the message in front of the city’s Planned Parenthood facility on 4th Street NE. Authorities also arrested two members of the group who wrote the message in chalk on the sidewalk instead.

“Fortunately, the event was far more in line with the constitution than our attempt to paint the street with the same message in Washington, D.C.,” Students for Life said of the Baltimore demonstration. “There, two of our students were arrested not for painting, but for sidewalk chalking. Six cop cars were there to meet us in our nation’s capital, doing the bidding of pro-abortion Mayor Muriel Bowser.”

Students for Life shared an aerial shot of the artistry, writing, “Student [sic] for Life and Frederick Douglass Foundation joined with local Baltimore pro-life activists outside the Planned Parenthood to paint on the street early this morning! #BlackPrebornLivesMatter[.]”

Abortion abortion clinic Disavow eugenics Intelwars margaret sanger New York City Planned Parenthood Racism

Planned Parenthood to remove founder Margaret Sanger’s name from NYC clinic because she supported racist eugenics

Planned Parenthood of Greater New York will remove the name of Margaret Sanger — a founder of the organization — from its Manhattan clinic due to her “harmful connections to the eugenics movement,” the New York Times reported Tuesday.

What are the details?

A public health nurse, Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the United States in Brooklyn in 1916, the paper said, adding that since then she’s been lionized as a feminist icon and reproductive rights pioneer.

But the Times reported that Sanger also supported eugenics. The paper defined it as “a discredited belief in improving the human race through selective breeding, often targeted at poor people, those with disabilities, immigrants and people of color.”

“The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color,” Karen Seltzer, the chair of the New York affiliate’s board, said in a Tuesday statement, the paper added.

Planned Parenthood also is talking to city leaders about replacing Sanger’s name on a street sign — Margaret Sanger Square — near its offices on Bleecker Street, the Times said, adding that Planned Parenthood of Greater New York lobbied for the Sanger street sign after moving its offices there over two decades ago.

More from the paper:

Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the national organization, has defended Ms. Sanger in the past, citing her work with Black leaders in the 1930s and 1940s. As recently as 2016, the group issued a fact sheet saying that while it condemned some of her beliefs, she had mostly been well intentioned in trying to make birth control accessible for poor and immigrant communities.

The national organization said in the fact sheet that it disagreed with Ms. Sanger’s decision to speak to members of the Ku Klux Klan in 1926 as she tried to spread her message about birth control.

It also condemned her support for policies to sterilize people who had disabilities that could not be treated; for banning immigrants with disabilities; and for “placing so-called illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, and dope fiends on farms and in open spaces as long as necessary for the strengthening and development of moral conduct.”

The national Planned Parenthood offices said in a statement that it supports the New York chapter’s decision to remove Sanger’s name from the clinic, the Times said, adding that while there’s no sign on the clinic, it had been identified internally and publicly with Sanger’s name. Now the clinic will be called the Manhattan Health Center, the paper said.

There are still Sanger fans out there

Ellen Chesler — author of a Sanger biography and senior fellow at a think tank called the Roosevelt Institute — told the Times that Sanger’s views have been misinterpreted.

Chesler added to the paper that Sanger rejected some eugenics tenets, including that white middle-class families should have more children than others, and instead believed that the quality of all children’s lives could be improved if parents had smaller families. She also noted to the Times that Sanger believed black people and immigrants had a right to that better life.

“Her motives were the opposite of racism,” Chesler told the paper while citing Sanger’s relationships with prominent black leaders such as W.E.B. Du Bois.

Agreeing with anti-abortion conservatives?

In disavowing Sanger, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York now finds itself agreeing — on at least one point — with anti-abortion conservatives such as Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and federal HUD Secretary Ben Carson, both of whom have questioned Planned Parenthood for its connection to a eugenics proponent, the Times said.

But Merle McGee, the New York chapter’s chief equity and engagement officer, told the paper it won’t concern itself with conservatives’ reaction.

“We’re not going to obliterate her,” McGee added to the Times. “If we obliterate her, we cannot reckon with her.”

Anything else?

Amid the furious movement since George Floyd’s killing to cancel historical figures who owned slaves or otherwise held racist views, the National Review’s Alexandra DeSanctis earlier this month asked, “How Long Will Margaret Sanger Last?

In fact, DeSanctis pointed out that in June, “more than 350 current and former staffers of Planned Parenthood’s Greater New York affiliate — along with several hundred donors and volunteers — published an open letter condemning Sanger as ‘a racist, white woman’ and arguing that the organization is guilty of ‘institutional racism.'”

Upon hearing the news that the clinic is removing Sanger’s name, DeSanctis tweeted that “it’s great that one Planned Parenthood affiliate has finally decided to admit that Margaret Sanger was icky. But isn’t it a sign of our upside-down world that they’ll apologize for having the name of a racist on their building while continuing to kill 350K unborn children a year?”

DeSanctis in her National Review piece added that “if removing offensive statues is the new norm, perhaps the bust of Sanger in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery should be the next to go.”

A group of black pastors and pro-life leaders in 2015 demanded that the gallery remove the Sanger bust over her eugenics support, but the gallery reportedly said no:

Abortion Devil's work Intelwars kanye west Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood responds after Kanye West says the abortion provider does the ‘devil’s work’

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has issued a response after mogul Kanye West said that the group is doing “the devil’s work” in black communities.

What are the details?

During an interview with Forbes published Wednesday, the rapper said he believes that “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the devil’s work.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s director of black leadership and engagement, Nia Martin-Robinson, told Blast in response:

Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available.

Any insinuation that abortion is Black genocide is offensive and infantilizing. The real threat to Black communities’ safety, health, and lives stems from lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police violence and the criminalization of reproductive health care by anti-abortion opposition. At Planned Parenthood, we trust and we stand with Black women who have, and continue to lead the charge when it comes to the health, rights, and bodily autonomy of those in their communities.

The Planned Parenthood organization also tweeted, “Stigmatizing Black people by suggesting that they are unable to make their own decisions about their bodies, families, and lives isn’t new, nor is it a coincidence – it’s a ploy pulled directly from the anti-abortion playbook.”

In a post linked to an article on West’s comments, the organization added, “We don’t know who needs to hear this, but when we say that no one should stand between a woman and decisions about her body when it comes to health care, that really means NO ONE.”

West, who announced via tweet on July 4th that he is running for president in 2020, also reportedly doubled down on his anti-abortion stance on Twitter Wednesday evening but then re-thought his post.

According to Complex, West “took to Twitter to post a screenshot of a Google search of ‘what does a 6 month fetus look like.’ He captioned the tweet, which he’s since deleted, ‘These souls deserve to live.'”

2020 presidential election Abortion Alexis mcgill johnson Biden endorsement Intelwars Joe Biden Life and death Planned Parenthood

‘This is literally a life and death election,’ Planned Parenthood says in Joe Biden endorsement with apparently no grasp on the irony

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, officially endorsed presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president Monday, calling the upcoming election a choice between “life and death.”

Alexis McGill Johnson, the acting president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, made the shockingly ironic comments alongside the release of a video announcement of the endorsement.

“This is literally a life and death election,” Johnson told NPR. “We felt like we can’t endure another four years of Trump; we have to do everything we can to get him out of office.”

In the video, Johnson complained to ominous music how over “the last four years, our most fundamental rights, and our health have been under attack” by the Trump administration.

Yet that didn’t stop the organization from setting a record by conducting 345,672 abortion procedures in a single year between Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 30, 2018.


Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorses Joe Biden for President

Appearing in the video, former Vice President Biden touted his record of supporting so-called “reproductive rights” and expanding insurance coverage for related practices through the Affordable Care Act before pledging his support to Planned Parenthood.

“As president I’m going to do everything in my power to expand access to quality, affordable health care for women, especially women of color,” Biden said. “We will protect women’s constitutional right to choose. I’m proud to stand with you in this fight.”

Johnson’s not-so-self-aware “life and death” comments were subsequently ripped on social media following the video’s release.

“You have to give it to Planned Parenthood,” journalist and author Billy Hallowell tweeted. “I have yet to see an organization more detached from the reality and meaning of its own bizarre proclamations. Yes, PP, it is certainly a life or death election for hundreds of thousands of unborn babies.”

Turning Point USA’s Chief Creative Officer Benny Johnson added in a tweet that Planned Parenthood is obviously “on the side of Death.”

The Washington Examiner’s Siraj Hashmi tweeted sarcastically: “Planned Parenthood certainly are the experts on ‘life and death.'”

​’Two large cash bags … just full, I mean overflowing with cash’: Former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson exposes the lucrative business of abortion

Abby Johnson’s incredible transformation from Planned Parenthood clinic director to one of the most powerful and prolific voices in the pro-life movement has understandably attracted a lot of attention, with her story being told in the book and movie “Unplanned.”

And now Johnson is sharing additional elements of her stunning journey in Pure Flix’s “Beautiful Lives,” a new TV series that features Johnson speaking with other former clinic workers and abortion industry workers who have found true freedom after leaving their careers behind.

In the first episode of the series, Johnson reveals how she first came to join Planned Parenthood as a volunteer and, over the course of subsequent years, rose through the ranks to become a clinic director.

“I was so good at justifying sin at that point in my life that I could justify just about anything,” she said, noting that she was truly lost and adrift during that time in her life.

Watch a preview of Johnson discussing her journey in “Beautiful Lives”:

Among Johnson’s responsibilities at the clinic was handling money the facility made from its abortion procedures — something she now looks back on with clearer vision.

“It was my job to take the money to the bank and after a full day of committing abortions. … I would have two large cash bags … just full, I mean overflowing with cash,” she said. “It was nothing to have $20, $30,000 in these bags. I didn’t really see it then, but now I recognize how lucrative it really was and that it truly was a cash business.”

Johnson shared that she started having reservations about her role at the clinic when she was told that the organization would build “the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere.”

The facility was slated to perform abortions later on in pregnancy — and while many people were excited, Johnson said she didn’t quite feel right about it.

But the final straw came when Johnson was asked to assist a doctor during an ultrasound abortion; what she saw changed everything.

“During that abortion on a 13 week old baby … I saw this baby fight for his life against the abortion instruments,” she said. “I had believed that the unborn didn’t have any sensory development, didn’t feel anything.”

Johnson continued, “And so to see this, I was surprised, and then [I] also realized it had been this big lie and then I thought, ‘What else have we been lying about?'”

Watch “Beautiful Lives” to see more of Johnson’s journey and to meet other women just like her.

Blazetv Chad prather COVID-19 Intelwars Planned Parenthood

Feds issue $80 million coronavirus bailout to Planned Parenthood affiliates

On “The Chad Prather Show” Wednesday, Chad Prather explained that despite the COVID-19 induced shutdown of medical facilities across the nation, Planned Parenthood was considered an essential business, and many affiliates received a bailout.

While many were unable to receive elective heart surgery, Planned Parenthood improperly filed for loans from the Paycheck Protection Program. In total, all 37 affiliates received a combined $80 million in coronavirus stimulus funds.

Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” reported, “And now the federal government wants the money back, saying the affiliates should have known they weren’t eligible for the coronavirus stimulus payouts.”

Fox News said, “The Small Business Administration (SBA) is reaching out to each involved Planned Parenthood affiliate explaining that affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees aren’t eligible for PPP distributions,”

According to Fox News, Planned Parenthood Clinic Federation alone has had more than 600 employees.

What else?

According to Fox News, back in August, Planned Parenthood clinics were banned from making abortion referrals if they wanted to secure federal funding. The organization chose to forfeit federal funding and decided not to comply with the order.

Abortion Coronavirus response Intelwars Planned Parenthood Planned parenthood coronavirus Ppp funding for abortions

Planned Parenthood improperly received $80 million in virus funds — Republicans demand they give it back

Affiliates of abortion provider Planned Parenthood improperly applied for and received $80 million in coronavirus relief funds, and Republicans are demanding they give back the money.

The report from Fox News says that thirty-seven affiliates received the funds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), despite the abortion provider being explicitly blocked from doing so.

The affiliates are being contacted by the Small Business Administration (SBA) in an attempt to warn them of possible fines and explaining why they were ineligible for the funding.

The largest allotment of coronavirus funds was $7.5 million for the Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties in California.

After the report from Fox News was published, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) released a statement condemning the abortion provider and demanding the money be given back.

“There is no ambiguity in the legislation that passed or public record around its passage that organizations such as Planned Parenthood, whose parent organization has close to half a billion dollars in assets, is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,” said Rubio, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

“Those funds must be returned immediately,” he added.

Rubio also called for an investigation into the violations of the PPP loan regulations.

“Furthermore, the SBA should open an investigation into how these loans were made in clear violation of the applicable affiliation rules and if Planned Parenthood, the banks, or staff at the SBA knowingly violated the law all appropriate legal options should be pursued,” he concluded.

Whatever happens with the PPP violators, they may receive a further windfall if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) succeeds with planned legislation that would allow for additional funding available to the abortion provider.

Abortion Heroes act Intelwars Nancy Pelosi Planned Parenthood

Republicans accuse Nancy Pelosi of attempting to ‘shovel cash’ to Planned Parenthood in $3 trillion coronavirus bill

Republicans accused Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) of attempting to allow funds meant for the coronavirus recovery to go to Planned Parenthood.

Pelosi unveiled a more than $3 trillion coronavirus aid package on Tuesday. Under her so-called HEROES Act, the Payroll Protection Program would receive another $10 billion so that businesses and nonprofit organizations could get loans designed to keep their workers on the payroll. Several Republican lawmakers claim that the House Democrats’ coronavirus bill allows for funding to go to Planned Parenthood.

The Trump administration had installed safeguards in the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act — also known as the CARES Act — that passed in late March. The safeguards prevented Planned Parenthood for applying for the PPP’s $669 billion in emergency loans to help small businesses continue to pay their employees during the COVID-19 shutdown. The House Democrats’ HEROES Act would remove those safeguards.

“Speaker Pelosi is working overtime for her donors in the abortion industry,” Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks told the Daily Caller on Wednesday. “I can’t believe I need to spell this out for my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, but cash-strapped Americans don’t want to pay for abortions, send cash to illegal immigrants, or have their hard-earned cash used to subsidize coastal elites or failing blue state pension systems.”

“The Paycheck Protection Program is for small businesses,” Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse told the Daily Caller. “There’s nothing small about Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion business. Nancy Pelosi shouldn’t try to shovel cash to Big Abortion’s corporate lobbyists while Americans suffer.”

“The Democrats want the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, to qualify for taxpayer money meant for small businesses, churches, and charities,” said Arkansas GOP Sen. Tom Cotton. “Congress ought to devote every cent of federal funding to life-saving causes, instead of paying off purveyors of death.”

The HEROES Act would define “essential workers” as those who work in “physician offices, community health centers, rural health clinics and other clinics, hospital outpatient departments, freestanding emergency departments, ambulatory surgical centers, and other related settings.” Abortion clinic workers appear to be categorized as “essential workers.” The HEROES Act would provide $200 billion in “hazard pay” for essential workers.

“Clearly this is an agenda that is out there purely for messaging and isn’t a serious attempt at dealing with what we’re going through as a country,” Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.) said of the HEROES Act. “This is kind of the mother of all Christmas trees of pet policies and pet projects as far as I’m concerned.”

“The legislation released today by @SpeakerPelosi is merely a partisan wish list that will not become law,” Huizenga wrote on Twitter.

“That will not pass. It’s not going to be supported,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) told CNN.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Congress needs to “pause” and grasp the debt brought on by the CARES Act. McConnell added that Republicans are “taking a look at what we’ve already done. And we’ve added about $3 trillion to the national debt, and assessing the effectiveness of that before deciding to go forward.”

“The HEROES Act focuses on three pillars: opening our economy safely and soon, honoring our heroes and then putting much-needed money into the pockets of the American people,” Pelosi said Tuesday.

“There are those who said, ‘Let’s just pause,'” Pelosi said. “But the families who are suffering know that hunger doesn’t take a pause. The rent doesn’t take a pause. The bills don’t take a pause.”

The House is expected to vote on the HEROES Act on Friday.

Drew Carey Intelwars Planned Parenthood RuPaul The price is right

‘The Price is Right’ donates nearly $100k to Planned Parenthood

CBS’s “The Price is Right” hosted a primetime special raising almost $100,000 for Planned Parenthood this week, during a nighttime episode featuring guest contestant and famous drag queen RuPaul.

What are the details?

The network promoted the special, dubbed “The Price is Right At Night” ahead of time, noting that Drew Carey, the host of the “#1-rated daytimes series and the longest-running game show in television history,” would be joined on stage by RuPaul, who would “be playing to raise money for the charity Planned Parenthood.”

Fox News reported that “contestants won big during the special, totaling $97,266 in prizes,” meaning “that the same dollar amount” would be donated to Planned Parenthood. The outlet noted that the move to raise funds for America’s most famous abortion provider sparked online debate between viewers.

On the game show’s Twitter feed, several people expressed their frustration over the move, with one saying, “Never thought I would see the day The Price is Right would support the murder of babies.” Another wrote, “What a disgrace #priceisrightatnight Long time fan but u lost me with support of PP. They don’t even let clients see the ultrasound while restrained during abortions. Shame.”

But others supported the game show’s initiative, with one cheering, “Totally here for this and the support of @PPFA,” and another tweeting, “Thank you for supporting Planned Parenthood! For many women, this is their only access to reproductive health care.”

The Hill pointed out that it wasn’t just viewers who took notice of the politically-charged fundraising initiative by “The Price is Right.” Planned Parenthood took to Twitter to thank RuPaul for his actions because it “is what we NEED right now!”

Prior to its airing, pro-life organization Live Action tweeted the details of the special while pointing out, “Planned Parenthood slaughters 947 Americans every day and has over $2 BILLION in assets. Despicable.”

Abortion Coronavirus Intelwars Paycheck protection program Planned Parenthood small business

Trump admin denies COVID-19 relief funds for Planned Parenthood — the money is for small businesses, not for ‘funding abortion’

The Trump administration has made sure that no funds from the Paycheck Protection Program, which is designed to aid small businesses hurt by the COVID-19 shutdowns, will go to the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

A senior administration official confirmed the news to Daily Signal on Wednesday, saying, “President Trump is committed to ensuring Paycheck Protection Program money is used for saving jobs at small businesses, not getting the government into the business of funding abortion.”

“While not all Americans share President Trump’s pro-life beliefs, there is broad bipartisan support for the idea that American taxpayers should not have to fund abortion,” the official added.

Included in the historic $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act — also known as the CARES Act — passed late last month, the PPP provided $349 billion in relief for small businesses. Under the fund’s guidelines, businesses with fewer than 500 employees could apply for a forgivable loan if they retained their employees. After the fund ran out of money in mid-April, Congress approved an additional $310 billion in new funding.

Due to Planned Parenthood’s size, it was already excluded by the Small Business Administration, the organization that oversees the loan program.

“The SB in SBA is for ‘small business,'” the official said. “So SBA has regulations called ‘affiliation rules’ to define when small employers might be so closely affiliated with a parent organization that they should be considered one large employer.”

The clarification was necessary, however, because while Planned Parenthood employs over 16,000 people nationwide, the organization operates affiliate networks, each of which has fewer than 500 employees.

Donald Trump Jr. Intelwars Joe Biden Planned Parenthood Sexual Assault Tara reade

Planned Parenthood​ gets a nod for their ‘courage’ from Donald Trump Jr after issuing statement on Biden sexual assault claim

After weeks of prominent women’s groups remaining quiet about a sexual assault claim against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Planned Parenthood issued a statement addressing the issue — and Donald Trump Jr praised them for having the “courage” to do what others did not.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, left-leaning outlet the Daily Beast reported that it reached out to 10 of the top pro-woman (pro-abortion) groups in the nation, requesting comment regarding the allegation that Biden sexually assaulted former Senate aide Tara Reade in 1993.

According to The Beast, most of the “Democrat-aligned” groups “did not respond” to their request, while “others replied and did not provide a statement.”

But on Thursday, Planned Parenthood did provide a statement to the outlet. Reporter Hanna Trudo, who wrote the original story, tweeted, “NEW: After we reported silence from nearly a dozen prominent women’s groups on Tara Reade’s allegation against @JoeBiden, Planned Parenthood’s president released a statement: ‘we believe survivors—and saying we believe survivors doesn’t mean only when it’s politically convenient.”

Trudo added, “@PPact’s President @alexismcgill continues: “Our country is hungry for leadership on this issue & now is the time to give it to them. @JoeBiden must address this allegation directly.”

Donald Trump Jr. reacted to the post on Twitter, writing, “Planned Parenthood just did what the following people didn’t have the courage to do: Nancy Pelosi, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Gretchen Whitmer, Amy Klobuchar & Crooked Hillary.”

Every individual named by Trump has been criticized for saying they believe Joe Biden over Tara Reade, despite the fact that Reade has provided more corroborating evidence for her claim against Biden than the accusations thrown at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during is confirmation hearings. Each of those women said they believed Kavanaugh’s accuser.

Anything else?

Planned Parenthood released their statement Thursday after it was announced that Joe Biden would finally be addressing the sexual assault claim against him on Friday morning.

Intelwars Joe Biden NARAL Planned Parenthood Sexual Assault Tara reade

The same pro-abortion groups who encouraged everyone to believe Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers have no comment about Tara Reade

You may recall that during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, pro-abortion groups were extremely vocal about believing all women and standing with victims of alleged sexual abuse. They generated graphics, disseminated them on social media, and encouraged their members and donors to call their representatives to express their support for Christine Blasey Ford and even the far less credible accusers like Julie Swetnick.

You may have also noticed that those same groups have been, shall we say, strangely silent about Tara Reade, the former Joe Biden staffer who has accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993.

Perhaps that’s because the pro-Democrat media has almost completely ignored the allegations, and groups like Emily’s List feel safe ignoring them and refusing comment from right-leaning outlets.

Well, at least one left-leaning outlet, the Daily Beast, felt it was worthwhile to reach out to comment to these groups, and what they found was, well, not very surprising.

After contacting 10 different groups, including Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and the National Organization for Women, the Daily Beast was not able to get a statement or comment from a single one of these groups.

According to the Daily Beast, some of the organizations simply didn’t answer their “detailed request for comment.” Other organizations “replied and did not provide a statement,” indicating that they clearly saw the request for comment and just didn’t want to give one.

To its credit, the Daily Beast illustrated the ludicrous lengths some of the groups went to in order to avoid giving comment: “One prominent women’s political group cited a scheduling conflict and asked to be kept ‘in mind for other opportunities!’ When pressed if the following day would work better, an associate said it would not, citing another scheduling conflict.”

Of course, some users on Twitter were quick to point out that these exact same organizations were decidedly less reticent when Brett Kavanaugh was accused, on substantially flimsier evidence, of misconduct dating back to his high school days.

BILL GATES SURVEILLANCE DREAM: Your Freedom IS NEXT!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck at Portfolio Wealth Global. 

The world has come a long way since the days of United States v. Microsoft Corporation, when everybody thought Bill Gates’ worst alleged crime was violating antitrust policy. Today, the corporate press treats Bill Gates with kid gloves as if he’s just naïve about politics and regulations, but his overreach into global affairs has been well documented.

Bill’s been busy pushing his personal agenda for many years now – though the mainstream press keeps this on the back burner if they even bother to report on it at all. It’s well-known that Bill Gates’ father was on the board of Planned Parenthood and Bill’s foundation donated $1,730,000 to the International Planned Parenthood Federation.

Portfolio Wealth Global has studied the life of Bill Gates closely.

The Planned Parenthood connection fits into Bill’s agenda, where he’s admitted that he wants to implement population reduction measures in third-world countries. The problem is that Gates knows how to speak persuasively, framing extreme population control measures as “philanthropic efforts.”

This underscores a much deeper and more disturbing strain in Gates’ master plan, which encompasses not only population reduction but also mega-scale, technology-enhanced surveillance tactics – and the common thread, as always for Bill Gates, is personal gain.

Gates’ immunization efforts have already failed miserably, as the government of India abruptly cut off ties with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2017, essentially refusing to accept their funding capital for a massive vaccination program. India’s immunization advisory body reportedly suspected conflict of interest arising from the foundation’s connection with pharmaceutical companies.

Then there was the $121 million completely wasted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in a failed attempt to bring an anti-HIV vaccine to South Africa. After all that money was spent, the research indicated that the proposed “vaccine” was no more effective than a placebo. The trials for this failed vaccine started back in 2016 and were finally put to rest in February of this year.

All of this was just preparation for something much bigger and far worse. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was involved in the so-called “Event 201” simulation, in which a computer simulation of the spread of a fatal virus suggested that 65 million people would die globally.

This “training exercise” took place in October of 2019, long before the coronavirus was the topic of conversation in the United States. Truthfully, the pandemic wasn’t discussed in earnest in America until February, yet Bill’s foundation was planning and preparing a simulation of what might be considered the most evil of “population control” schemes.

But this goes beyond a plan to depopulate the world – there’s also a surveillance component to Gates’ agenda. Old Bill has always been a techie, so his Orwellian version of a police state naturally involves a “broad” use of “digital tools” to monitor the population.

Bill figures that everybody can be tracked through the smartphones they carry with them everywhere, so he wants to implement “apps that will help you remember where you have been; if you ever test positive, you can review the history or choose to share it with whoever comes to interview you about your contacts.”

Exactly who would “come to interview you about your contacts?” Would it be the government, or perhaps an enterprise controlled by Bill’s foundation? Wait, it gets even more dystopian, as Gates seems to like the idea of “allowing phones to detect other phones that are near them by using Bluetooth and emitting sounds that humans can’t hear.”

That’s how total population control starts: tracking of each individual that’s undetectable because it’s beyond the range of human hearing.

Moreover, Bill Gates suggests that “if someone tested positive, their phone would send a message to the other phones…” Say goodbye to privacy and hello to Orwell’s 1984.

Gates also wants to get into your DNA – literally. He’s now “excited” about a vaccine that would actually alter your genetic code, along with your immune system. This would be the final nail in the coffin for your basic human rights: first “contact tracing” through invasive technology, then control of your body and genes is given up – Bill’s got a vision, alright, and we’re all in the crosshairs.

Abortion Abortions Coronavirus Pandemic Intelwars Planned Parenthood reproductive rights

‘Reproductive justice’ advocate details her lockdown abortion experience: ‘Will I get stuck pregnant?’

A “reproductive justice” advocate’s essay in Newsweek has gone viral after she documented her experience in obtaining an abortion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What are the details?

Nik Zaleski, who is also a playwright, cultural strategist, and director — writes, “I had an abortion in California during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In the essay, Zaleski says that she has worked tirelessly over the past 10 years to “protect abortion access” through organizing, facilitating, and storytelling.

“Back in March,” she admitted in the piece, “I made a difficult decision.”

That decision? Not an existential battle over whether to kill her child or let he or she live — but “whether to go outside (or not) to get an abortion.”

Needless to say, the reproductive justice advocate opted to leave the house in order to get an abortion, because she said she believed it to be “essential.”

“[S]hould we go outside and potentially expose ourselves to the virus or stay home with a pregnancy we don’t want to continue?” she wrote.

You know what she ended up doing, of course.

Heading to Planned Parenthood

“On March 16,” she wrote, “the day the ‘shelter in place’ order was announced in certain parts of California, I pulled up to the parking lot of my local Planned Parenthood to begin a medication abortion.”

“I glanced at my phone before going in to find a text from my friend,” she continued.

The message, Zaleski said, read, “California is about to announce that six counties, including ours, won’t be allowed to leave our homes until April 7. … Get everything you need before mass hysteria.”

“In the steps between the car and the clinic doors, I worried,” she admitted. “Will I get stuck pregnant?”

Zaleski said that she entered the facility with one worry on her mind: Whether she’d be able to obtain her “necessary” abortion.

“When it was my turn [in line], I told the receptionist I had just heard the news about sheltering in place,” she recalled. “‘Am I allowed to be here?’ I asked. ‘Of course,’ she assured me.”

Zaleski said that she took a deep breath and “silently thanked God.”

She was able to obtain the abortion via pharmaceutical treatment and she went home to count her blessings and privileges as a “white, young, healthy, able-bodied, insured” American.

“I am now thinking about all of the people who are currently trying to get the abortion access they need,” she wrote. “Should [abortion patients] follow the CDC’s guidance and cancel travel or get on a bus, plane, train, or car to cross a state line for care?”

Feeling for women who want an abortion but face red tape

Zaleski said that she felt fear for those women who elected to have an abortion, only to discover red tape because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think of everyone who has to travel hundreds of miles because they happen to live in Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, or West Virginia — states with only one clinic that offers abortion services,” she mused. “And I think of those who may have to travel long distances for a later procedure. They will all have to make the same decision that I did — whether or not to go outside.”

Zaleski said that she was able to experience on a small scale — about “seven minutes” — the anxiety that women who can’t get their “necessary” abortions, and felt for them.

“That seven minutes is why I work to ensure everyone who wants an abortion is able to get one,” she boasted. “Without barriers and without fear.”

Planned Parenthood sues states that are suspending abortions to dedicate more resources to coronavirus

Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations are suing several states for temporary suspension of elective abortion in order to preserve medical resources for potential treatment of COVID-19 patients, according to The Hill.

Iowa, Texas, Alabama, and Oklahoma have been sued for similar measures by Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and/or the Center for Reproductive Rights. These states have banned nonessential surgical procedures to preserve equipment for anticipated spikes in the number of COVID-19 patients.

Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the Center for Reproductive Rights argue that abortion is a time-sensitive and essential procedure.

“A global pandemic is not an excuse to attack essential, time-sensitive medical procedures like abortion,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, according to The Hill.

Iowa’s order calls for the “delay of all nonessential and elective surgeries that can be postponed without ‘undue risks to the current or future health of a patient.'”

“These actions will help us preserve the personal protective equipment as well as our health care workforce,” Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) said Thursday in announcing the policy.

The delay of elective abortions don’t create “undue risks” to patients’ health, but the pro-abortion argument is that if women are forced to wait, some may then have to give birth if they cross a certain point in their pregnancy. Iowa’s order, for example, is in place until April 16. Abortions in Iowa are legal up to 20 weeks.

Some states such as Virginia, New Jersey, Washington and New York, have declared abortion an essential procedure that can go forward. Alabama has reportedly not clarified whether abortion is suspended, but doctors in violation of the ban on nonessential procedures could be subject to criminal penalties.

Abortion providers in Ohio indicated that they would not comply with an order from the state’s attorney general to suspend nonessential abortions.

Abortion Coronavirus Intelwars Ohio Ohio attorney general Planned Parenthood

Ohio’s AG ordered pause on abortion to save medical equipment — but most providers will keep doing them anyway

Most abortion clinics in Ohio intend to defy an order by Ohio’s attorney general to stop performing abortions and any other elective surgical procedures that require the use of crucial personal protective equipment, such as masks and gloves, that are now in short supply because of an influx of the coronavirus patients, CBS News reported.

What’s the story? Ohio Attorney General David Yost sent letters to state abortion providers Friday telling them to temporarily stop performing elective abortions and other nonessential procedures, and defined what that meant.

“You and your facility are ordered to immediately stop performing non-essential and elective surgical abortions,” Yost’s letter said. “Non-essential surgical abortions are those that can be delayed without undue risk to the current or future health of a patient.”

The response: Five out of the six abortion providers in the state have expressed intent to continue performing abortions, arguing that the procedures are essential.

“Planned Parenthood’s top priority is ensuring that every person can continue accessing essential health care, including abortion. We know your health care can’t wait,” the heads of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio said in a statement to CBS News. “Abortion is an essential, time-sensitive medical procedure.”

Not just about abortion: Bethany McCorkle, a spokesperson for Yost’s office, said the order does not specifically target abortion, but it focuses on limiting any nonessential procedures so that all resources can be mobilized toward responding to COVID-19.

“This is not about abortions,” McCorkle told CBS News on Sunday. “This is about nonessential surgeries using [personal protective equipment] during this pandemic.”

Some states, such as Massachusetts and Washington, have classified abortion as an essential procedure and therefore exempt from any pause on elective procedures. Other states, like Texas, that have issued similar orders have not clarified how abortion is classified.

Ohio halts abortions over coronavirus, sending abortion advocates into full-scale meltdown

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has halted abortion procedures in the Buckeye State over the growing coronavirus outbreak, resulting in a full-scale meltdown from abortion advocates.

On Friday, Yost informed of Ohio’s biggest abortion clinics — Women’s Med Center in Dayton and Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio’s Cincinnati Surgery Center — that they needed to immediately stop providing abortions.

“You and your facility are ordered to immediately stop performing non-essential and elective surgical abortions. Non-essential surgical abortions are those that can be delayed without undue risk to the current or future health of a patient,” Yost wrote, CBS News reported.

The stoppage applies to all abortion clinics, according to WKRC-TV.

Behind the temporarily abortion halting is the state’s attempt to preserve medical equipment, like personal protective equipment, that is critical for medical personnel on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.

In response, abortion advocates were not happy.

“THIS IS BULLS**T. COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLS**T. People cannot be forced to travel out of state or wait weeks, maybe months on end, to get an abortion DURING A PANDEMIC. The anti-abortion movement is using a public health crisis to essentially ban abortion,” Renee Bracey Sherman, the so-called “Queen Of All Abortions,” responded.

“The state of Ohio has ordered abortion clinics in their state to shut down because they are non essential healthcare. This is creating ANOTHER HEALTHCARE CRISIS. Needing an abortion is time sensitive and VERY ESSENTIAL to a person who needs one,” writer Lizz Winstead said.

“This is an unprecedented time & people’s health & safety must be protected; but the gov’t shouldn’t use this crisis as an excuse to target clinics & try to take away the ability of Ohioans to access abortion, which is time-sensitive, essential health care,” the ACLU responded.

“People should not push ideological agendas that interfere with the doctor-patient relationship. Period,” Kellie Copeland, executive director of the advocacy organization NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, told the Washington Post.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood said, “Now is the time to expand health care, not restrict it.”

Minnesota city recognizes ‘Abortion Providers Appreciation Day’ to ‘celebrate’ abortionists’ ‘high-quality care’

In St. Paul, Minnesota, Tuesday officially marks “Abortion Providers Appreciation Day” in the city after the city council decided to wade into the national debate on the right to life last week.

According a city council resolution that passed Wednesday, “Abortion Providers Appreciation Day” is meant to “honor the memory” of abortionist David Gunn, killed on March 10, 1993, as well as “to combat the stigma that many abortion providers and clinic staff face, and to celebrate the courage, compassion, and high-quality care they provide.”

As reasons for officially setting aside Tuesday as a day to celebrate people who end unborn babies’ lives, the resolution said that the Supreme Court “now contains a majority of Justices who may not interpret the Constitution to provide protection for the right to end a pregnancy and may overturn or severely limit Roe v. Wade” and claimed that “abortion providers must be accessible in order for people to make real decisions about their bodies, lives, and futures.”

The resolution passed unanimously with a vote of 7-0.

The measure also called abortion “one of the safest medical procedures in the United States” — despite the fact that it must result in the willful termination of a human life in order to be successful.

Of course, last week’s vote didn’t go through without drawing some pro-life pushback.

Minnesota state Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka (R) criticized the decision on Twitter, calling it “bizarre.”

“I believe we should protect human life from conception to natural death,” Gazelka wrote. “But why would the St.Paul city council choose to ‘celebrate’ abortion? Some may think it’s a necessary evil, but to celebrate abortion is bizarre.”

GOP state Sen. Mark Johnson said that he was “saddened” and “disturbed” by the city council’s decision in a prepared statement.

“Movements like this are indicative of the moral decline occurring in Minnesota and across our country,” Johnson stated. “As a father of three, I understand the sanctity of life and the joy that children bring to this world. Instead of celebrating abortion providers and their destructive habits, let’s take a moment to celebrate life and our local organizations who are on the front lines protecting women’s and children’s health.”

But Tuesday’s celebration of abortion providers and the execution of their chosen profession wasn’t limited to the city of St. Paul. Multiple pro-abortion organizations also marked the date on social media, with some sharing a graphic that encouraged others to “join the celebration.”

Last month, the question of whether or not any abortion advocates actually celebrate abortion briefly became a topic of debate, following then-Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s comment that “we have to get back to the point where no one is suggesting that we be celebrating an abortion at any point in the pregnancy.”

A CNN opinion writer tried to counter that “nobody ‘celebrates abortion,'” and his assertion was subsequently met with numerous counter-examples in rebuttal. Now it would appear that such rebuttals have been given even more evidence to back up their case.

Bernie Sanders’ radical abortion agenda: ‘Free’ abortion for everyone, banning abstinence sex ed, and defunding crisis pregnancy centers

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) rolled out his “reproductive health” — i.e. abortion — agenda over the weekend and it contains some extreme positions that are par for the course for the rest of his far-left and expensive political agenda.

To begin, Sanders’ plan promises that, under his signature “Medicare for All” plan, “the Hyde Amendment will be repealed and all reproductive health services will be provided free at the point of service.” Of course, the government cannot really make any commodity or service truly “free,” but merely change how it is paid for and who pays for it, meaning that this would leave American taxpayers to pick up the tab for all abortion services.

But the proposal talks about more than covering the cost of abortion. It adds that a Sanders administration would also invert one of President Trump’s more combatted pro-life policies — stripping abortion providers of Title X funding — by turning that defunding effort on pro-life pregnancy resource centers and threatening to strip them of Title X and “other government funds.” At the same time, the proposal also pledges to defend and increase government funding for Planned Parenthood — America’s largest abortion provider.

Sanders’ abortion plan also addresses how America’s children would be educated on the subject of sex by vowing to ban “ineffective abstinence-only sex education,” rather than leaving the question of sexual education curricula up to parents and educators.

The Vermont senator’s proposal goes on to address pro-abortion advocates’ anxieties about the future of abortion rights in the realm of federal court decisions.

“As President, Bernie will work tirelessly to undo the damage Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell have done,” the plan says, referencing the White House and Senate’s efforts to fill federal judicial vacancies under President Trump. “That means working with reproductive justice and advocacy groups to fill vacancies with highly qualified, principled judges who will protect reproductive rights at every level.”

On that front, Sanders’ proposal says guarantees that he would require “all judicial nominees to support Roe v. Wade as settled law” and that the 1973 abortion ruling would also be codified in “legislative statute.”

Further down the page, the plan also pays special attention to how issues of so-called “reproductive justice” affect minority populations.

“If abortion is legal, but your state has no or too few reproductive health clinics, then you do not have reproductive justice or freedom,” the page reads. It later adds, “We must address these issues holistically to ensure true reproductive justice for all, especially in communities of color.”

In contrast to those listed concerns, however, many pro-life advocates to argue that abortion providers specifically target black communities. 2012 research from the Life Issues Institute based on 2010 census data found that Planned Parenthood had “79% of its 165 surgical abortion facilities within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods,” and updated research from the same organization in 2015 found 78% facilities in walking distance of either black or hispanic neighborhoods. Furthermore, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention numbers from 2018 showed that black women had abortions at much higher rates than their white counterparts.

Sanders’ plan drew praise from NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue, who called it “robust” and “a very solid plan on its merits” while saying the organization “would like to see the same” from rival candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.

But since so much of Sanders’ abortion proposal hinges on his “Medicare for All plan,” there are legitimate questions about exactly how much of it could actually make the difficult transition from campaign pledge to standing policy.

Sanders campaign surrogate Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) admitted weeks ago that the plan might not be able to get the congressional support necessary for passage if Sanders is elected.

“A president can’t wave a magic wand and pass any legislation they want,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a mid-February HuffPost interview. She added that “The worst-case scenario? We compromise deeply and we end up getting a public option.”

‘Abortion time! TAKE 2’: Disturbing video shows girls gleefully celebrating getting an abortion at Planned Parenthood

A video of young women celebrating as they document a trip to Planned Parenthood for an abortion is going viral for its shock value, as the girls are seen laughing, dancing, and even fist-pumping in the waiting room of the clinic before taking the camera into the procedure room.

What are the details?

The clip, uploaded to social media site TikTok, has been widely shared. Lila Rose, founder and president of pro-life advocacy group Live Action, posted the video to Twitter on Thursday, reporting that it had already racked up more than 4 million views.

Rose — whose organization’s pro-life advertising has been banned by Twitter in the past — pointed out that the video violated “countless Community Guidelines” before adding:

“Our ability to be cruel is endless. When society celebrates abortion, should we be surprised to see this kind of cruelty? My heart breaks for this little helpless baby, killed on camera, his young mother joking about it. And it breaks for her, who will live with this all her life.”

The video begins with the caption, “Abortion time! TAKE 2” and two young women are seen getting ready while laughter can be heard in the background. The footage then cuts to the young women parked in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic as the apparent patient laughs in the passenger seat.

Once inside, two people can be seen in the waiting room holding hands, appearing somber, with a caption that reads, “There’s two abortion moods.” The subject of the video is then seen fist-pumping and dancing and appears to be in the same waiting room.

The final scene shows the young woman in an exam room, feet elevated in apparent preparation for a procedure. A close-up of the screen showing an ultrasound is the last image the viewer is left with.
