Planned Parenthood Unironically Praises Their “Commitment” to Mothers…and Children

If there’s one thing you can always count on the nation’s largest abortion provider to display, it’s an overblown sense of worth.

As we all know, Planned Parenthood labels itself as one of the country’s preeminent providers of women’s health services. Of course, a huge part of their business (more than the 3% they claim) involves ending hundreds of thousands of unborn lives in their clinics each year.

You don’t have to be a genius to recognize that this is neither health nor care.

The actual truth doesn’t stop them, though. They’re always eager to convince us that they are an integral part of American life.

On Mother’s Day, the holiday set aside to honor and thank those females who birthed or adopted and cared for us, Planned Parenthood chose to pat itself on the back for all they do. For mothers. And…children.

Uh, what?

Healthy lives? Raise children in peace? Yes, and Dr. Mengele had a charming bedside manner.

Nothing says “health” and “peace” like selecting unique individuals for destruction simply because they dare to exist at an inopportune time. They are not cancerous tissues needing to be excised. They are not parasites. They are human beings – persons – with inherent worth and unique DNA. But to Planned Parenthood, they are moneymakers.

According to their latest annual report, 321,384 unborn individuals were killed at their clinics in the last year. So, what was that again about being committed to mothers and children? Stating something doesn’t make it automatically true if the facts don’t line up, handmaids.

What Planned Parenthood actually means is that they are committed to interrupting life as it naturally occurs in the womb. They are deeply invested in lying to women, many of whom are desperate and scared and looking for some sort of option as they face an unplanned pregnancy. PP is more than willing to swoop in and “care” for these women. They do so by directing them to a sterile room where their legs will be spread and an abortionist will forcibly and violently remove the growing, developing, unique life safely inhabiting their womb.

Would you prefer a medication abortion where you pass the “tissue” at home in your cluttered bathroom? How about injecting digoxin into the baby’s beating heart to stop it? Perhaps a suction machine to vacuum out the unwanted human body? Discard it in a medical waste bin, and all is done.

This is their commitment. 

It is difficult for Planned Parenthood to get around those of us who are passionate about sharing the truth of abortion and the industry. But to those who actually believe PP exists for the good of women and children, the lies appear as truth.

Yet another reason to counter Planned Parenthood’s feel-good sermons with fact. No one else is going to speak up for the unborn dead.

A First Lady “platform” should not turn into government policy

Westlake Legal Group a-first-lady-platform-should-not-turn-into-government-policy-2 A First Lady “platform” should not turn into government policy The Blog platform Melania Trump flotus children agenda

There’s a big announcement coming from the East Wing this afternoon. In case you thought that was a typo, it’s not. This is the long-anticipated announcement from the First Lady of the United States regarding her “platform” for the coming months and years. It’s currently scheduled for three o’clock in the afternoon and the annoucement will be made in the Rose Garden. You can see the various ways to view it here.

So what does FLOTUS plan to be working on? It’s generally agreed that she will focus on the welfare of children, which is in keeping with the many trips she’s taken to visit children’s hospitals and schools. CNN offers some hints as to the specifics.

Melania Trump will announce her eagerly awaited formal platform Monday during a Rose Garden event, nearly 16 months into her tenure as first lady.

While Trump has since September of last year said she plans to focus her efforts on the well-being of children, she had yet to define what exactly that means, instead delving into a broad range of topics under a wide umbrella of issues…

Trump will not land on just one issue affecting children, instead expanding the platform to include other keynote causes. Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham tells CNN Trump’s approach will be a multi-pronged.

“As has been evidenced by the many events Mrs. Trump has participated in during her time as first lady, her focus will be the overall well-being of children. Something unique though: She has not narrowed her platform down to just one topic as has been done in the past,” Grisham said. “Mrs. Trump wishes to help the next generation by creating change through awareness on a variety of issues that affect children.”

Let me just start by saying that I’ve become an unabashed fan of the First Lady. I knew virtually nothing about her before her husband ran for office, but I’ve since been very impressed with not only her poise and beauty but her many trips to meet and pray with ailing children in hospitals and compassionate outreach to their families. At this point, I follow her on a couple of social media platforms and believe that she’s an admirable presence in Washington.

With all of that said, I hope that this doesn’t turn from an agenda of serving as a positive role model and advocate for charitable, compassionate work by citizens into some sort of legislative agenda. I’m not implying that this is what she has in mind, but we’ve seen it happen too often in the past. Michelle Obama was fully within her rights to want to encourage kids to eat more healthy meals and plant a garden at the White House. But when that turned into changes in the nation’s school meal programs it crossed over into the policy arena. And then we have Bill Clinton’s wife who got her hands into the machinery of health care policy and… enough said.

Keep in mind that Donald Trump was elected President and Mike Pence was elected Vice President. Nobody voted for Melania Trump or Karen Pence or any office in the land. Their positions are ceremonial and they have no duties in running the government. This is an important distinction to make because if they have a “job” in the government, the citizens have no recourse to remove them if we’re not satisfied with their performance.

With those cautions in mind, if the First Lady can inspire people to do more for children, give charitably to children’s hospitals, encourage parents to monitor their children and put an end to bullying or anything of the sort, that would admirable work well done. She should be supported in such efforts. But if it turns into formal changes in policy affecting public schools, then it’s gone too far. Even if it’s the most brilliant solution imaginable, we don’t need another rendition of Hillarycare for kids.

    New Surrogacy Law in DC

    June 25, 2017

    In April, a new law for surrogacy became law in the District of Columbia.

    Prior to the passing of this new law, all parties to surrogacy agreements were subject to a fine up to $10,000 and a one year prison term. This ban had been in place for 25 years, and D.C. was the only jurisdiction making surrogacy a criminal offense.

    Opponents of surrogacy argue that the practice is unnatural and exploits women.  Concerns in some western European countries have made compensation for surrogacy illegal. Supporters of surrogacy say that it represents a rare chance for to make families for some people.

    The new D.C. law streamlines the process for would be parents, and allows them to be named on the birth certificate, so they can avoid filing for adoption after the birth. The law applies to any would-be parent, regardless of sexual orientation and biological relation.

    Kids Staying in House After Separation or Divorce

    Khadilkar Law PLLC



    May 30, 2017

    I have heard of a few people already doing this.  I thought it was an interesting idea – the kids stay in the home, while the parents move in/out based on the custody arrangement.

    I wonder if more families will start looking into this option. Interesting article from the New York Times.

    Kentucky Judge Recuses Himself from Adoption Case

    Khadilkar Law PLLC



    May 15, 2017

    A judge in Kentucky has said he will recuse himself from adoption cases involving homosexual parties.  The judge stated that he will be doing so “as a matter of conscience” because he feels that under no circumstances would it serve the best interest of a child to be adopted by a same sex couple.

    But does this violate ethics rules? Isn’t a judge sworn to uphold the laws of the land? If he cannot do so, how is he honoring his oath?  Interesting development in Kentucky – we will have to see how this plays out.

    Judge Orders Custody to Three Parents

    March 25, 2017

    An unconventional family had a child and then became involved in a custody battle in New York.   The parties involved are: (1) a married couple, man and wife, and (2) their neighbor, a female.  The three were reportedly involved in intimate relations and considered themselves a family.

    The neighbor female gave birth to a boy, whose biological father was the neighbor.  The married couple eventually filed for divorce, after the two women moved in together.

    The Judge in New York awarded shared custody to all three parents.  To read more of this interesting story, click here.

    Parental Rights for Rapists?

    May 12, 2016

    Rape victims who have gotten pregnant have had the heart wrenching decision to decide whether to seek an abortion or to have the child.  If a rape victim decides to have the baby, in some states, she may have to fight with the rapist for custody.

    Last year, President Obama signed into law the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act.  This law provides grants to states that allow women to petition for termination of parental rights based on clear and convincing evidence that the child was conceived through rape.

    Many states have laws that restrict or completely terminate parental rights of rapists.  According to Virginia Code 63.2-1233(6), consent of the rapist is not required in an adoption case, where parental rights are terminated. However, if the mother wishes to keep the child, the rapist has options to seek other parental rights.

    In the District of Columbia, there are no restrictions of the parental rights of rapists.  In Maryland, the state Senate just rejected a bill that would terminate the parental rights of rapists.  The resistance stems from the right to have and raise a family, grounded in the Due Process Clause.

    So generally in this region, women who choose to give birth to a child conceived from rape will be tied to the rapist forever.  What should be the law?
