Dissecting Cecile Richards’ Autobiography

make-trouble-9781501187599_hrRaised by ultra liberal parents in an extremely conservative community in Texas, it would seem Richards really didn’t have much of a chance at being anything but a left-wing liberal.

In elementary school she got in trouble for refusing to recite the Lord’s Prayer and told her teacher “We don’t read the Bible in our house.” Later on in seventh grade, she was sent to the principal’s office for wearing an anti-Vietnam War arm band to school. Then, At the age of 16, she and her mother campaigned for Sarah Weddington in her bid for the Texas state legislature. Weddington is better known as the the attorney who won Roe v. Wade. 

Both her parents were extremely involved in activism, something Richards would later make a career out of by working as a labor organizer and union supporter alongside her husband. And for a short time, she worked for Nancy Pelosi.

So as you can see, the path to president of Planned Parenthood was paved with many years of service to the liberal agenda.

Just before her chapter on working for Planned Parenthood, there’s a glowing testiment to motherhood, which is puzzling since so much of the work Planned Parenthood does is to prevent women from becoming mothers. She talks about how her first pregnancy with her daughter Lily was unplanned. Her birth control failed. The timing was off and she and her husband weren’t sure they wanted to be parents right then. But ironically, she chose life. In fact, there’s no mention at all of her even thinking about having an abortion. Instead, she says “in the end we came to the same conclusion millions of people do: there was never going to be a perfect time to have kids, but just like everything else, we’d figure it out.”

However, later on in life, even after all the wonderful things she had to say about motherhood, when faced with having a fourth child, Cecile decided to abort.  “Like millions of other women, I was using birth control, but no method is foolproof. We were doing the best job we could raising our kids, and I couldn’t imagine we could do justice to a fourth. Having another child just was not an option for us. I already felt like I wasn’t doing enough for Lily, Hannah and Daniel as it was. Being able to terminate a pregnancy early – it had hardly even begun – was a relief.”

How sad.

As you can imagine, the rest of the book is filled with political attacks and left leaning propaganda. Richards takes shots at Sarah and Bristol Palin, John McCain (during his bid for presidency, Planned Parenthood handed out condoms on college campuses that had “protect yourself from John McCain” printed on them), Paul Ryan and of course, President Trump.

She talks about her secret meeting with Jared and Ivanka Trump, saying it felt like they were trying to bribe her and that abortion is essential to women’s health care. “Our patients are not bargaining chips,” she says, although it’s a little hard to believe that without abortion services, Planned Parenthood would lose millions in revenue. So likely, the REAL reason comes down to profits, not people like Richards would have you believe.

There’s also a lot of love for Hillary Clinton (both Cecile and her daughter Lily campaigned hard for her during the 2016 election) and a lot of talk of how sexism abounds in politics, especially Congress, and most notably the committee that questioned her about Planned Parenthood’s alleged sales of baby parts.

Richards memoir is quite interesting to read, even for someone as pro-life as myself. I always find it helpful to learn a little bit about the “opposition” so I can try to understand where they are coming from and form better arguments for my own side of the issue at hand. It’s clear that her Godless upbringing greatly shaped the person she became and there are many mentions throughout the book about how she perceived the religious right to be dangerous to progressivism.

It’s also a testament to the kind of legacy a person can leave. Cecile’s parents instilled a liberal set of values in her and she is now passing those same values on to her own children, who also work to expand socially liberal policies.

Then there’s Cecile’s legacy that’s been left on America. There’s no mention of her future plans, but Richards has been successful at inspiring the next generation of women who are busy knitting pink hats, marching on Washington and changing their Facebook photos to say “I stand with Planned Parenthood.”

What should worry us is that, in her twelve years as president of Planned Parenthood, 3.8 million babies were aborted. That’s roughly half the number of Jews who were killed during the Holocaust. And a growing number of Americans are okay with that.

It’s time to take Cecile’s own advice and “make trouble” for the pro-abortion crowd – millions of unborn lives depend on it.



Following Planned Parenthood Tweet, Jezebel Says Statistically at Least Two Disney Princesses Have Had Abortions

A Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania tweeted that among other things, we need a Disney Princess that’s had an abortion. The tweet has since been deleted, but as with everything else in the Internet, it lives on via screenshots.

Liberal rag Jezebel loved the tweet and devoted an entire article to it, stating that statistically, two of them already have.

From the post:

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 23.7 percent of women in the United States will have had an abortion by age 45. According to the “official” Disney princess website, there are 11 “official” Disney princesses: Belle, Rapunzel, Ariel, Tiana, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Merida, Pocahontas, Jasmine, and Mulan. That means statistically around two and a half of these strong women have gotten abortions and aren’t telling you about it because of a national culture of shame and misogyny!!!

Insert eye-roll emoji here.

The comments were Internet gold with some people saying Elsa was left off (she’s not considered a Disney princess) and others trying to make guesses as to which ones were slutty enough to have gotten knocked up.

What a strange world we live in where people are debating the hypothetical abortions of cartoon characters.



PA Planned Parenthood: Disney should use characters to promote leftist causes

The indoctrination must begin sooner rather than later!

If it was up to one Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood group, Disney and its cute, iconic characters would become much more political.

In addition, they would also kill the unborn, not exactly have legal status in the country and even change genders.

For some inexplicable reason, the group tweeted their following wish list for child indoctrination.


Sometimes the left screws up and let’s their true intentions shine and this is one of them: indoctrinating the youth. And what better way to do that then through Mickey, Minnie and Pluto, right?

You know, I always thought the Little Mermaid was great, but if it just had more abortions it would’ve been just a little better.

Also, Woody would probably be happier, not fighting with Buzz as much if he was just who he was meant to be: a woman! Right?


Stacey Dash to Star in Pro-Life Film

Clueless star, author and former Fox News contributor Stacey Dash has signed on to star in a new film about the true founding of Planned Parenthood. Executive produced by Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and will begin shooting this summer.

She announced the news on her blog:

This is the movie that Hollywood doesn’t want to see made. They don’t want the public to know the truth about the roots of Planned Parenthood.
It’s time for America to know the truth, the real story of what happened in 1973, and there is no better way to share it than on the big screen.

Dash will play Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first African American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, first female doctor at Boston University Medical Center and the founder and later President of the National Right to Life Committee.

Jefferson is also credited with helping change former President Ronald Reagan’s mind from pro-choice to pro-life.

Jon Voight is also set to star as a Supreme Court Justice.


Turns Out, People at Saturday’s Women’s March Didn’t Really Know Why They Were Marching

On Saturday, the women marched again. Some wore pink hats , even though those are supposed to be insensitive to trans women – guess they didn’t get the memo? They were armed with signs supporting Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, pay equality and immigration. Others made fun of conservative women, called for the impeachment of Trump and his cabinet.

The Hulk went. Halsey read a poem about a friend who’d been raped and Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, shamed white women for not being a part of the “sisterhood” and praised black women for saving the country from itself.

And then they literally littered in DC (so much for loving the environment) by leaving all their signs in front of the White House.

But probably the funniest thing on the Internet today was from YouTuber Fleccas Talks who went down to one of the Women’s Marches and asked a few people exactly what they were marching for.

Most couldn’t answer. One guy said he hated conservatism and that Trump wasn’t qualified because he’d never been President before. (That’s every President we’ve ever had serving a first term in office.)

Another felt shame for being a white male. Some women wanted to kill both Trump and Pence. Others were unhappy because he’s “repealed stuff.”

Pure brilliance right there! For a lot of laughs, check out the video below. (Thankfully he also talked to a few sane people who were out there just to watch and actually seemed to have some smarts about them.)



OK Cupid Teams Up With Planned Parenthood

Are you a conservative looking for someone to date? Are you pro-life? Might want to cross using OK Cupid off your list of potential online dating sites where you can find a suitable girlfriend or boyfriend.

The dating site is now partnering with Planned Parenthood and introducing a special #IStandWithPP profile badge users can add to their profile picture. OK Cupid says it feels strongly about connecting members to causes they care about, and that 80% of members have responded “no” to the question “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?”

“OkCupid’s partnership with Planned Parenthood is really exciting because it enables us to help people connect on the issues that matter to them. In this current climate, this matters more than ever when it comes to finding ‘your person,’” said Melissa Hobley, CMO of OkCupid. “We know that Planned Parenthood is driving conversations, support and education that millions care about. When we looked at the data, we saw that our community on OkCupid was talking about Planned Parenthood, so we decided to make it easy to find the folks who cared about the same thing.”

Strange that a dating site thinks it’s sexy to share in a cause that promotes the murder of innocent children. Also strange for a dating site to be asking users questions about whether or not the government should defund Planned Parenthood. Leave that up to the people to discuss once you connect them.

I bet they won’t enable a filter for people who DO think the abortion giant’s funds should be completely cut off.


Dear Feminists: We’re Tired of Your War on Pro-Life Women

While the Comey hearing was going on yesterday, feminists were trying to re-direct people’s attention away from the former F.B.I. director’s testimony. They’re still screeching about the possibility that they’re actually going to have to pay for their own birth control and that access to abortions will be severely limited or, God forbid, taken away from them.

Just last week, the NY Times published a piece titled “Trump Rule Could Deny Birth Control Coverage to Hundreds of Thousands of Women.” The author warns that if the new health care law passes, women will not be able to get the free birth control that Obamacare provided to them and more employers, like The Little Sisters of the Poor, could deny insurance coverage for birth control based on religious objections.

SO WHAT? Pay for your own contraceptives! Birth control is not that expensive – around $9 per month for a pack of pills for those who are uninsured – and they can easily be obtained at health clinics all over the United States. And on a side note: insurance companies will cover birth control that’s being used for medical reasons – the only thing Christian run corporations objected to was birth control being used as abortifacient drugs.

Planned Parenthood also tried to use their scare tactics too, tweeting that de-funding the organization would leave women with nowhere else to turn. Fact check: there are 20 community health clinics for every 1 Planned Parenthood and most offer the same services, if not more, than the abortion giant.

Online news magazine Marie Claire recently tried to expose Evangelical Christians who they say want to de-fund Planned Parenthood, yet use their clinics. The article makes some pretty bold claims that young adults who grow up in the church aren’t getting “honest medical information” because their religion shies away from talking about sex or contraceptives. They even allude to the fact that young adults are “traumatized” from the religious teachings they received early in life.

And apparently 13% of all abortions are for Evangelical Christian women, although there’s no source or explanation of where that statistic came from.

Well known feminist writer Jessica Valenti also dropped an opinion piece yesterday, stating that “a law that bans abortion is a law that mandates pregnancy. And forcing women to be pregnant is a clear-cut denial of freedom.”

It’s humiliating to be put in the position of having to convince someone of your humanity. I’m tired of women having to explain themselves to people who will never know what it feels like to be pregnant when you don’t want to or cannot be. How many studies need to be done? How many articles do we have to write, or stories do we have to share, before people will accept that a woman’s ability to control what happens to her body is as necessary to her as oxygen? When will they realize that denying us this is deadly? An abortion protected my health and possibly my life.

WOW. That first sentence is so hypocritical and sad. How long have we pro-lifers been trying to convince liberals that the unborn are human too?  That a baby is a separate body within your own and they also have a Constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness just like the rest of us who walk this planet?

And as a side note: Valenti laments that an abortion protected her health and possibly her life. Funny, firearms do the very same thing for many people, yet she’s openly against anyone owning a gun.

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of abortion advocates whining about their rights being taken away when they themselves take away the rights of the most vulnerable in our society. It’s almost daily that some new piece pops up about how women are living out the Handmaid’s Tale right now.

Please. The pro-choice movement is overwhelmingly controlling the narrative that there’s a “War on Women” when in fact, the war is really on conservative women. Those of us who speak up for the unborn are then demonized by their own gender for not conforming to feminist standards, even if we believe in equality in pay and work.
