Project Mustard Seed: January 2010, Happy New Year!

Hello,
Please consider joining thousands in the Mustard Seed Project by sending a letter each month to a particular corporation asking them to stop supporting Planned Parenthood, the world’s largest abortion provider.  This month, the corporation is BUFFALO WILD WINGS.
If this is the first time you are receiving this request, it doesn’t take long. You can use one of the form letters below or write your own letter. Save your letter to use again next month, then just change the addressee and date.
We are continuing to offer the company we are writing to the opportunity to donate to a nearby pregnancy center or worthy charity instead of contributing to PP. 
Doug Scott, President of Life Decisions, the organization that keeps track of corporations donating to Planned Parenthood, writes:

Dear LDI Partner:
Please keep up the great work! The boycott works only because of your active participation.  Your letters do make a difference!  231 companies have stopped contributing to PP—a loss of over $40 million for PP.

In 1991 there were almost 2,200 abortion facilities. Now there are 713. A decrease of almost 1,500.
We start this year offering smaller sample letters by using a PP violations map which can be viewed by clicking here.
Happy New Year.

Dear Ms Smith:
Life Decisions International has indicated BUFFALO WILD WINGS supports Planned Parenthood, and we are disappointed.  You may wish to reconsider contributing to Planned Parenthood because they do not always report the statutory rape of young girls who visit their facilities and they have other violations. Examples of PP legal violations for 13 states (Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, New Mexico, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Washington) can be found byhttp://liveaction.org/monalisa/” title=” clicking here”> clicking here. Scroll down for sample videos and for the PP violations map showing the violations in each state.
Life Dynamics of Denton, Texas did a telephone survey of PP abortion facilities and found that 90% of them would cover up and not report the sexual abuse of statutory rape. They found that when a child predator takes a young girl he has impregnated to PP for an abortion, it will not be reported and the predator will be free to continue abusing the minor. Click here for recordings of the survey calls. Please consider donating to organizations which always observe the law with regard to sexual predators.

It is noteworthy that Planned Parenthood promotes degrading sites for teens (click here for more)
PP has used young girls - 14 and 15 -  in sex related clinical trials. To see the pdf file, click here.
The former PP Director at their College Station, TX facility resigned and joined the local pro-life group after she saw an ultrasound of an abortion. She said that she was pressured to generate more abortion business, not pregnancy prevention, because abortion is PP’s money maker. PP sought a court order to keep her from releasing information about PP business and patients, but she has no intention of providing information about patients and the court ruled that PP had no case for action.
Do you really want to pay PP’s fines and legal fees? You can use your money to help women by making a donation to a nearby pregnancy center, adoption center, or natural family planning group at http://www.boma-usa.org.  Pregnancy centers are being attacked because they are so effective at helping women so they can keep their babies.  http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?c=PASSIONTOSERVE” title=“Click here”>Click here for a report on the work pregnancy centers do.

Dear Ms Smith:
Life Decisions International has indicated BUFFALO WILD WINGS supports Planned Parenthood, and we are disappointed.  Newly released data reveals that for the 2007-2008 fiscal year, Planned Parenthood committed 305,310 surgical abortions, had over a billion dollars of revenue, $85 million profit and received $350 million in federal funds. Planned Parenthood has received $4.5 billion in taxpayer funds since 1987.
Planned Parenthood spends $48 million a year on sex education programs in an effort to entice children into sexual activity; e.g., http://www.teenwire.com and It’s Perfectly Normal, (a book for children as young as ten), without parental guidance or any idea of the morality of the sexual activity.  The book has been called pornographic. See: http://www.cwfa.org/articles/6122/CFI/family/index.htm)
Do you want your company to have the reputation of contributing to an organization that endorses child pornography?  Please stop supporting Planned Parenthood.
PP has introduced another offensive website http://www.takecaredownthere.org that demeans teens. PP has used young girls - 14 and 15 -  in sex related clinical trials.
Over four million babies have died in Planned Parenthood facilities. Planned Parenthood has located almost 80% of their abortion facilities in
black neighborhoods, and black women have 35% of the abortions in the US, even though blacks make up only 12% of the US population.  So Planned Parenthood has killed over 1.3 million black babies.

Planned Parenthood is a very successful business, but it is a disaster for America. It contributes to the spread of debilitating diseases, has
killed more people than currently live in many of our states, and has done it all under the guise of a “charitable” organization, with 39
percent of its funding coming from our taxes.
South Dakota passed a law that requires abortionists to tell women the truth that an abortion will “terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being”.  (See sonograms of preborn babies by clicking here, including a dancing fetus.) Planned Parenthood said the law was “unconstitutional” and refused to obey it until the state threatened their license and a District Judge said that part of the law is constitutional and they must obey it.  PP is continuing legal action against the law.
Washington State fined PP-Spokane $700,000 for three years of alleged fraud. PP had over-billed Medicaid (in some cases as much as three times) for services like abortion and contraception. Auditors outlined five categories of abuse which include everything from unnecessary pregnancy tests to charging Medicaid with post-abortion drugs. California and Texas auditors have also said that PP over-billed Medicaid. This contradicts Planned Parenthood’s longstanding claim that “family planning” money doesn’t pay for abortion-related services. PP will be entrusted with more health care dollars in the Senate health care bill.
The PP Director at their College Station, TX facility has resigned and joined the local pro-life group after she saw an ultrasound of an abortion. She said that she was pressured to generate more abortion business, not pregnancy prevention, because abortion is PP’s money maker. PP filed a court order to keep her from releasing information about PP business and patients, but she has no intention of providing information about patients. The court said PP’s action has no merit.
Do you really want to pay PP’s fines and legal fees? You can use your money to help women by making a donation to a nearby pregnancy center, adoption center, or natural family planning group by clicking here.  Pregnancy centers are being attacked because they are so effective at helping women to keep their babies.

Teen Sex? Please Do! - Planned Parenthood

by Matt Barber

September 1, 2008

Planned Parenthood, the billion dollar corporate abortion mill, has taken indecency to a whole new level and is using your taxpayer dollars to do so. The organization, which is responsible for the abortion deaths of tens of millions of people, was founded in 1916 by admitted white-supremacist Margaret Sanger, with the lofty goal of, as Sanger put it, eliminating “the ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” Lest there be any doubt as to whom, exactly, Sanger was referring to, she also wrote: “We do not want the word to go out that we (Planned Parenthood) want to exterminate the Negro population.”

Sorry, Maggie. Word’s out.

Although Planned Parenthood’s primary mission is detestable beyond words and remains unchanged still today, its secondary goal, if left in a vacuum, is not so sinister. That is, of course, to make lots and lots of money.

But here’s what is sinister. In order to make lots and lots of money, Planned Parenthood, just like any other “service provider,” needs lots and lots of customers, and the best way to get those customers is to promote the very behaviors which create them. Specifically, to manipulate kids – under the guise of so-called “comprehensive sex education” – to engage in promiscuous, casual sex as soon and as often as possible. It’s simple supply and demand. Planned Parenthood encourages the behaviors which create the demand and then dutifully offers its deadly supply.

To that end, Planned Parenthood has created a new promotional Web site that targets youth. It’s called “Take Care Down There”. To visit their website, click here. It features short, near pornographic “public service” video vignettes which, among other things, promote casual sex, immodesty, homosexuality and even group sex.

For example, in perfect keeping with its demonstrably racist, loosey-goosey sexual tradition, one of the Planned Parenthood videos depicts what appears to be a teenage African-American male relegated to performing oral sex – in public – on a white teenage male. Another white male (a creepy adult authority figure who seems just a little too interested) walks up and begins giving instructions. The white teenager then says, “I didn’t even spew.”
In another vignette, a teenage girl appears to drop her pants – again in public – exposing her privates in front of two other girls and the same African-American male. She then asks them, “Do you see anything down there?” referencing potential evidence of sexually transmitted disease. Of course, based on her cavalier sexual attitude and tart immodesty (or is that immodest tart?) the odds strongly favor the likelihood that she does, in fact, have something “down there.”

So why does Planned Parenthood’s latest vulgar foray into the corruption of America’s youth concern you? Simple – you’re paying for it. Consider the following information compiled by Liberty Counsel:

Planned Parenthood has been receiving federal funding under the Title X Family Planning Program, enacted in 1970 as Title X of the Public Health Services Act. Section 1008 of the Act, as amended, stipulates that “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning,” yet Planned Parenthood is nevertheless receiving funds under this federal program.

During the 2006-2007 fiscal year, Planned Parenthood received a total of $336.7 million from government grants and contracts (that’s your taxpayer dollars). In 2008, $300 million was given to family planning clinics, under the Title X program. These funds were used to service over five million people, a third of which received “care” from a Planned Parenthood clinic.

On October 27, 2007, a coalition of leaders from dozens of conservative groups, including Liberty Counsel, Concerned Women for America, Focus on the Family, the American Family Association and more, signed a joint letter calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood, after revelations of the abortion giant’s alleged systematic violation of Kansas state law came to light. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) and Representative Mike Pence (R-IN) have both introduced legislation that would prevent Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers from receiving taxpayer dollars in the future.

While commenting on Planned Parenthood’s latest abuse of taxpayer dollars, Attorney Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, stated, “Planned Parenthood has now given the federal government yet another reason to stop funding this racist, eugenic, and immoral organization.

“Why should hardworking Americans pay to support Planned Parenthood’s profiteering sex agenda, that encourages teenage sex on the one hand and then profits by aborting the consequences of such promiscuity on the other hand?
Planned Parenthood’s Web site is offensive and, frankly, shocks the conscience. It is insane that we allow our tax dollars to fund such an irresponsible and destructive organization. We must stop funding Planned Parenthood and we must stop now!”

True, indeed. Beyond its stated mission to cleanse the world of “human beings who never should have been born at all,” Planned Parenthood’s primary purpose is to promote promiscuity among youth in order to line its pockets, plain and simple. There’s a clear conflict of interest here. When kids engage in risky sexual behaviors, Planned Parenthood wins. Why else would it be promoting casual sex, homosexuality and group sex?

It’s like the tobacco industry showing kids how fun and exciting it is to smoke cigarettes, and then telling them, with a wink, “But always smoke safely.” We wouldn’t allow Joe Camel access to our kids on the taxpayer dime; neither should we give Margaret “The Reaper” Sanger and her Planned Parenthood brood such taxpayer-funded access.
