Planned Parenthood

I was contacted via email by the Florida Planned Parenthood PAC, with an endorsement questionnaire to fill out. The following is my reply.


I appreciate you sending the endorsement questionnaire.


I am not seeking endorsement from the Florida Planned Parenthood PAC, as Planned Parenthood is a reprehensible government sponsored Malthusian eugenics operation.

As a Libertarian, I promote limited government, personal freedom, and economic liberty.

You cannot be free if your mother murders you. The right to life is the most basic right of mankind.

Adding insult to injury, and regardless of any accounting tricks to conceal reality, the murderous eugenics program conducted by Planned Parenthood is subsidized by money seized with force by the IRS from the producer class of America’s citizenry.

Planned Parenthood is part of a larger scheme to institute Marxist tyranny in the United States, and was founded by a left wing racist named Margaret Sanger, and one of the organizations goals was extermination of black Americans, who she considered subhuman and an obstacle to Socialism in the United States.

“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” Sanger wrote. —Letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble on Dec., 10, 1939

Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973, over 19 million black Americans have been murdered in the womb. They say Hitler killed 6 million Jews, so simple math concludes Planned Parenthood is three times worse than Hitler’s regime.

Your doctors should be tried for murder, with special circumstance of the crime being that the victims were helpless babies, and they should be executed upon conviction. Your staff involved in this modern holocaust should be tried as accessories.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Please issue a public condemnation of my campaign.

Thank you

The Florida Planned Parenthood PAC, Inc. is a non-partisan, political action committee formed as the political arm of Planned Parenthood in Florida.

Planned Parenthood Organizations: Respected And Trusted Providers And Advocates

Planned Parenthood health centers provide reproductive health care nationwide. They are America’s most trusted reproductive health care providers and have given the name “Planned Parenthood” a highly favorable reputation. A February, 2016 survey from Hart Research showed 67% of women swing voters trust Planned Parenthood when it speaks out about issues affecting women’s health care. Not only do women overwhelmingly trust Planned Parenthood health centers as health care providers and advocates, voters support the Planned Parenthood proactive policy agenda.

The Florida Planned Parenthood PAC believes in ensuring women have access to the family planning and reproductive healthcare services they need. We believe that every woman—regardless of income, age or marital status—has the fundamental right to decide when and whether to have a child.

Protecting Planned Parenthood’s Ability To Serve Patients

With approximately 650 health centers across the country, Planned Parenthood health centers provide a wide range of preventive health care services to 2.5 million patients. More than 90 percent of what they do nationally is lifesaving cancer screenings, birth control, STD testing and treatment and annual well woman exams. They are also proud to provide abortion services, and ensure that women have accurate information about all of their options

Planned Parenthood health centers also provide accurate information about all of the options around a woman’s pregnancy to support her personal medical decision, provide abortion services and referrals for abortion, and support women’s access to safe and legal services.

In past years, Planned Parenthood health centers’ ability to continue to provide critical health care services has been under attack at both the federal and state levels. During the 2016 legislative session, HB 1411 was passed to prohibit any funds from local entities, state government or Medicaid Managed Care contracts to be reimbursed to any organization that owns or operates a health care facility that provides abortion. This legislation could have cut off thousands of low-income Floridians from accessing high quality care from their provider of choice. Thankfully portions of the law were found to be unconstitutional.

Affordable, Accessible Health Care And Family Planning Services

Making health care, including family planning, more accessible and affordable is one of the most important issues facing our country and our state. Planned Parenthood health centers are an integral part of America’s health care safety net and will continue to play a vital role in serving the millions of Americans who are insured under the Affordable Care Act. Through Planned Parenthood health centers, women have access to the essential primary and preventive health care services that promote and protect their health and well-being. In fact, many Planned Parenthood patients rely on health centers as their main source of health care.

In Florida, the need for accessible and affordable health care and family planning services is hard to overstate. Some 1,941,120 Florida women are in need of contraceptive services and supplies. Of these, 700,090 women need publicly supported contraceptive services because they have incomes below 250% of the federal poverty level. Eighteen percent of Florida women aged 15–44 have incomes below the federal poverty level, and 29% of all women in this age group are uninsured (i.e., do not have private health insurance or Medicaid coverage).

Unfortunately, as the cost to provide care and the demand for services has increased, funding for family planning has remained woefully inadequate. At the same time, family planning programs have been subject to political attacks designed to undermine women’s access to these important services.

Birth Control Coverage

Since the 1960s, one-third of the wage gains women have made are the result of access to oral contraceptives. Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans are required to fully cover women’s preventive health care services, including the full range of FDA approved birth control methods, with no co-pay. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, more than 55 million women now have access to no-copay preventive services, including birth control, STI screenings, and life-saving preventive services such as breast cancer screenings and Pap tests. Women save more than $1.4 billion in out-of-pocket costs on birth control pills per year since the ACA’s birth control benefit went into effect.

Due in part to this historic expansion in access and affordability to contraception, the nation is at a historic low in unintended pregnancy, a 30-year low in teen pregnancy, and at the lowest rate of abortion since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. Nonetheless, nearly half of all pregnancies in the
United States are unintended, and nearly half of those unintended pregnancies end in abortion.
Unfortunately, in 2014, in Hobby Lobby v. Burwell the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that under the
Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), for-profit corporations are allowed to deny insurance coverage for their employees’ birth control (as required by the Affordable Care Act) because of the business owners’ personal religious beliefs.

Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception (EC), sometimes known as the “morning-after pill” or emergency birth control is a safe and effective means of preventing pregnancy. Available for more than 30 years, it contains hormones found in birth control pills and, to be effective, must be taken within 5 days after intercourse. It is crucial in situations such as rape, or when contraceptive methods have failed. In 2006, EC was FDA-approved for over-the-counter sale behind-the-counter without a prescription to adult women. In 2013, a federal judge ruled to allow emergency contraception to be sold over-the-counter for women of all ages. However, some health care providers are not informing patients about EC, and some pharmacies are refusing to stock or dispense it.

Teen Pregnancy Prevention

Polls show that 85 percent of Americans support sex education in schools. The federal government moved to provide federal funds for sex education both through the Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Initiative and the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), but now this funding is at stake. These two initiatives provide funding to states and programs that implement proven, effective pregnancy prevention programs.

Now, federal funds are being shifted for harmful abstinence-only programs; even though numerous studies show that abstinence-only programs are ineffective and fail to delay the onset of sexual intercourse, fail to teach accurate information about preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Florida currently funds a program that provides a statewide website and hotline to refer women to so- called crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) often run by organizations opposed to abortion, not medical professionals. CPCs have been known to use medically inaccurate or incomplete information and intimidation tactics to dissuade women from obtaining abortions. CPCs have also withheld essential, often life-saving, medically accurate reproductive health information from women who are led to believe that they are visiting a neutral and objective medical facility.

Abortion Access

Florida Planned Parenthood PAC believes that decisions about whether to choose adoption, end a pregnancy, or raise a child must be left to a woman, her family, her faith, with the counsel of her doctor or health care provider. Politicians should not interfere in a woman’s personal medical decisions about her pregnancy. Opponents of safe and legal abortion have tried to erode access to abortion through a range of abortion restrictions, including targeted restrictions designed to shut down health centers (known as TRAP laws), and laws designed to shame and judge women.

The U.S. Supreme Court in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt ruled that state laws that do not enhance patient safety — rather, they punish women by blocking access to safe abortion cannot stand. Some states, including California, have passed legislation codifying Roe v. Wade to guarantee its protections legislatively because of the continuing judicial controversy, and many states are working to repeal and challenging TRAP laws as unconstitutional under Whole Woman’s Health.
