Letter to Senators Loyal to Planned Parenthood

Dear U.S. Senators, 
If you support Planned Parenthood, then you have immersed yourself in lies to support the #1 baby killer in this country—330,000 babies on average killed annually.  Honesty is not an option for you because even liberal voters might flinch if you admitted the truth: I don’t care that babies are killed in the womb so why should I care if they are cut up and sold?

Planned Parenthood demands your loyalty because they want their money's worth.  In 2014 alone, they spent $679,596 electing politicians like you.  And let’s not forget Emily’s List, which, if you are a woman, they surely have invested in you.  Their website brags that they have ”raised over $400 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates….”
On August 3, you were part of the group (minus 2 gutsy Democrats and plus 1 Republican) that insured the Senate bill fell short by 7 votes (53-46) of the 60 votes necessary to bring it to the floor.  In North Dakota, Republican Senator John Hoeven voted to defund the #1 abortion business. But Heidi Heitkamp, despite being raised Catholic, voted to keep giving them $500 million of our tax dollars annually.
Willful Ignorance
I’m curious, Senators, how many of you even watched the undercover videos documenting Planned Parenthood illegal selling of aborted baby parts?  Were you one of those interviewed by John McCormack of the Weekly Standard who admitted not watching any of the videos?  Or, were you among those that ran away or shut a door in his face? 
Note to Claire McCaskill of Missouri: it took guts to admit that you had watched the video yet still voted to keep pouring money into the Planned Parenthood death machine.  Nice try on your excuse: "That's not the point. The point is to prevent abortions by making sure that women can get birth control."  How is birth control the point rather than the fact that cutting up and selling parts of aborted babies is not just stomach wrenching, but also illegal?
Morality was Never a Goal
But, missing the point is your goal.  Morality is simply not a corporate goal for Planned Parenthood or it's supporters.  Cecil Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, spews slanderous lies with every breath because the stakes are so high. 
According to Planned Parenthood’s 2013 annual report, their 68 affiliates received 41% of revenue from federal funds.  But dear Senators, we don’t need to keep sending them that money. If they were defunded, the funds would go to other health-care providers that already vastly outnumber Planned Parenthood businesses.  According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research arm of the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List, there are more than 9,000 community health centers but only 700 Planned Parenthood facilities in the U.S. Trust me, everyone would be just fine without them--especially the unborn.
Senator Heitkamp
Being from North Dakota, it’s my responsibility to specifically address Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s support of Planned Parenthood. But I assume the issues I address here apply to all the Senators that backed Planned Parenthood. Heidi, people think that the maximum donation from Planned Parenthood during your campaign affects your vote. Interesting also that the pro-abortion lobbying group Emily's List celebrated your election.
When your constituents write to chastise you for supporting the killing of God’s innocent creations, you respond by spinning them a tale. Let me respond to some of it. “ health care provider or patient is allowed to financially profit from this donation.”  Key word: “allowed.”  Watch the video to see what they do that is not “allowed.”
“…no federal funds can be used for abortion. This is a policy that I have supported and will continue to support.”  Well, it’s a start for your Catholic self.  But consider that since they are raking in so much Federal cash, it frees up their other income to do what they like. Part of that includes Cecil Richard’s $523,000 annual salary.  Do you think that without the half-a-billion in Federal money to contribute to their total revenue of $1.210 billion, that Richards would be paid so well?  Without all that money, would Planned Parenthood be able to afford a top PR company to try bolster their image right now?
You said that, “Federal funding that is provided for clinics around the country, including those operated by Planned Parenthood, help many low- and moderate-income women get affordable cancer screenings, STD testing, and contraceptive care, and I will continue to make sure these clinics have the support they need for this life-saving work and ensure access to family planning services and critical screenings for all women. “
I take issue with the term  “life saving” when referring to Planned Parenthood, but let’s move on.  These services can be done at any of the 9,000 community health centers as opposed to 700 Planned Parenthood facilities in the U.S.  Yeah, I know I noted that earlier, but it seems to need repeating.  And the contraceptive care you support, never mind that half the women that get abortions were on some sort of birth control, but many of contraceptives are abortifacients.  I won’t even talk about moral problems with promoting contraception since you are so far from the Church right now.
You are telling voters that you "will continue to make sure these clinics have the support they need..." Well, please stop. The health care that women need is already available.  The baby killing and tissue selling that no one "needs" should no longer be available.  Planned Parenthood says only 3% of all services are for abortions.  But they are counting every single service given to a woman. One woman with 12 months of birth control would be counted as having received 12 services.  Look just at pregnancy related services. For pregnant women,  93.78 % who went to Planned Parenthood in 2012-2013, left without their child. That means that for every 1,000 pregnant women who walk into Planned Parenthood,  938 have abortions and only 62 give birth.

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? (Mark 8:36). Please, Heidi and friends, consider your eternity. Those of us who love life, also love your life and want you to live it to the fullest in this world and in the next. Our prayers are with you.
