Inlsee Stands with Planned Parenthood, Condemns “Extremist” Critics

It has been a bad month for Planned Parenthood. With the release of their fourth video today, the Center for Medical Progress continues to expose the reality of what the abortion industry is.

But one friend they have not lost is Washington’s Governor Jay Inslee.

In response to a request from seven state legislators calling on him to stop public funding to Planned Parenthood, Governor Inslee released the following statement:

“Planned Parenthood provides millions of women across the country access to a full range of affordable health care and family planning services. National extremist organizations are engaged in a concerted effort to discredit, and ultimately eliminate, an organization that so many women rely on.

“Here in Washington State, where we have long fought to protect women’s access to family planning services, Planned Parenthood is on the front lines of women’s health care. I stand with them in their efforts to ensure every woman needing access to safe and legal reproductive health care can get it.”

Gov. Inslee can’t even bring himself to acknowledge that the allegations are troubling.

No statement about the need to wait for all the facts to come in before rushing to judgment. Just an unambiguous defense.

He insults the intelligence of every woman in America by acting as if they are unable to distinguish between real women’s health care and financially profiting from the organs of babies that have been recently killed.

He is not outraged by what the videos reveal but by the fact that they were ever made.

One video at a time, the Center for Medical Progress is shocking the nation’s conscience. They are exposing the cavalier way in which Planned Parenthood executives negotiate the sale of body parts.

But some of us may no longer have a conscience.

In the video released today, one Planned Parenthood medical assistant declared, “And, another boy!” while sifting through the remains to assess the usefulness of the babies’ organs.

Not even Planned Parenthood is able to defend themselves. Their response to the videos has been to tell their friends in the media not to share the videos.

That’s not how you behave if you’re proud of what you do.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), a member of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus and sponsor of numerous abortion bills resorted to the “but it’s legal” defense. She said, “Planned Parenthood is actually allowed, is my understanding, for scientific research, to use fetal tissue and that is not illegal”.

If your best defense of your behavior is “it’s not illegal” you’re admitting that it’s wrong.

In an environment when many of the most pro-abortion leaders in the country can’t bring themselves to defend the indefensible, Governor Inslee walks out onto the fringe of the fringe by making an unqualified defense of Planned Parenthood and his desire to send them more of your money.

And he thinks you’re the extremist.

After you’ve done that, please share this with friends who want to be part of the solution. We are the solution.

    The weakest argument always depends on name calling and labeling the opposition stupid. It points to a lack of knowledge and inability to prove one’s point.

    Rick: Give it up. You are attempting to defend the indefensible. Your Planned Parenthood ‘facts’ are utterly devoid of statistics to back them up. Your mother can’t be both pro-life and pro-choice. That is like being a ‘pro-Zion Nazi’. She was pro-life; otherwise you would have ended up as ‘medical research’. And spare me the liberal gibberish about supporting kids when you support denying them life in the first place. Fred: This forum is for adults. Log off your computer before your parents read your juvenile posts.

    Rick: Abortion is the taking of human life and you are concerned about financial profits? And now the unborn are reduced to the ‘proper material to use’? According to whom? And it is OK body parts are ‘shared’ (read: destroyed) if permission is given? And exactly what other services are not available in other parts of the country that are provided by Planned Parenthood? What you meant to say is that Planned Parenthood provides abortions as their primary ‘service’. Amigo, you need some real soul-searching because your misguided beliefs sadly exemplify why this once great nation is going down the tubes. I know said beliefs did not come from your mother because she was pro-life…….

      Not sure who you really are that you usurp someone else’s name, but …. You really need ot read what I said. Planned Parenthood does NOT make a profit on the body parts used for medical research. Yes, I would rather use some body parts to enhance the human experience through science than just throw away the already aborted fetus. Planned Parenthood does provide abortions – however, once again look at the FACTS – the vast majority of its funding goes to cancer screenings, family planning, counselling, etc. and, yes those types of services are not easy to access in much of the country. And, by the way, my mother was very pro-life AND pro- choice. She also endeavors to provide support to babies after their birth, unlike most supposedly ‘pro-life’ supporters who would rather cut taxes than help education, support those unemployed, support programs that help parents raise their kids – in other words, pro-life all life long rather than just for pre-birth!

    Once again, this organization and its supporters dare not let ‘facts’ get in the way of their opinions. Even the anti abortion zealots do not claim Planned Parenthood makes a ‘profit’ off of letting medical researchers use the body parts of aborted babies for medical research (may we hope you or yours never suffer from a disease that could have been dealt with if scientists had the proper material to use.). Nowhere in this article does it mention body parts are shared ONLY if the mother has given express permission. The facts are that, in many parts of the country, the other services provided by Planned Parenthood are NOT available form other sources; you may wish or imagine many clinics do allow women – especially poor and uneducated – to use their services, but they do not. Lastly, someone named “Moki” bemoans the use of abortion services “even beyond birth”! Quite an accomplishment!

    I emailed Gov Inslee and said that his stand in favor of Planned Parenthood makes him look malevolent as well as foolish. How any rational person could support this organization is beyond my understanding.

    I am really fed up with pro-life views being labeled “extreme” by people who support not only abortion, but abortion all the way up to and even beyond birth. Inslee, Planned Parenthood, Democrats and those who can’t comprehend that unborn babies have a right to live are the extremists.

      I too, am so saddened by the folks who cannot or will not see this Planned sParenthood for the evil “sidebar” that it is! It may have started out years ago so have some advantage but then the greed entered in and downhill it went! Any of the offerings they may provide are already provided by our tax-supported Public Health facilities, EXCEPT FOR ABORTION and there seems to be no need for their “for profit evil” services beyond what we are already providing. Please, are our minds turning to mush as seems where we are or going, or pretty much THERE.
      Hopefully we are being allowed a “wake-up call” and if we don’t realize that, there will be a purge like we can never imagine and it will be our own fault……. WAKE UP AMERICA!
