Letters to the Editor of New Oxford Review

Elizabeth Hanink has provided a worthwhile reminder of the dangers of physician-assisted suicide. Unfortunately, like many others who report on this subject, she missed a very important element within the right-to-die movement.

This movement has one goal, euthanasia, and at least two ways to get there: the hard way and the soft way. Compassion & Choices, which promotes physician-assisted suicide, represents the former. As Hanink points out, it has received millions from George Soros. (The IRS 990 form for Compassion & Choices of Oregon, apparently the organization’s home office, indicates that it had at least $20,812,163 in expenses, with salaries for four executives at $621,235 in 2014.)

On the other hand, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC), the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC), the Altarum Institute, and other groups represent the softer, gentler pathway to imposed death, called “palliative care.” Palliative care is generally thought of as a type of pain management for the chronically ill and dying, but the dictionary definition of palliation is “to cover something.” And covering up an imposed death is what these groups are all about. CAPC trains palliative-care professionals to work in hospital inpatient units, intensive-care units, and emergency rooms, and in rehab centers and even community healthcare organizations. All these groups have legislated and lobbied their way into a protected, increasingly profitable, and rapidly expanding niche within the world of health care.

Consider the University of California San Francisco’s Palliative Care Program, which has received $750,000 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, $153,000 from Soros’s Project on Death in America and other private foundations, and $726,640 from the National Institute on Aging. An article at the website of the James Irvine Foundation, which gave the program its 2011 Leadership Award, described its work thus: “Palliative care is often healthier for the patient’s family members, who are at greater risk of depression if they’ve watched their loved ones suffer. It is also more cost efficient: Research shows that by providing realistic options and ensuring that care is consistent with what patients and families want, medical centers can reduce useless interventions and save thousands of dollars for every patient cared for by a palliative care service” (emphasis added).

This more moderate wing of the right-to-die movement makes its arguments based on utilitarian principles. As part of its communication strategy, it encourages discussion of goals of care and reminds patients of the so-called indignities of pain and the potential loss of inheritance due to expensive treatment. The point being: Die now, save yourself and your family the inconvenience of a non-planned death, save the state the cost of treating your health problems, and free up space in a hospital bed when someone more deserving could be using it.

Those opposed to this utilitarian philosophy tend to fall into a trap. We accept the notion that all death is humiliating, pain-filled, and undesirable for the family, and as Hanink points out, “even the Catholic Church does not insist on futile or extraordinary treatment or suffering.”

Catholics often quote Pope Pius XII’s 1957 definition of the “ordinary means” of sustaining life as those “that do not involve any grave burden for oneself or another” — as opposed to extraordinary means, which the Pope said “would be too burdensome for most men and would render the attainment of the higher, more important good too difficult.” Unfortunately, euthanasia proponents have also been using these outdated definitions to their own advantage in order to justify limiting traditional medical treatment. In fact, the Society for the Right to Die Handbook (1981) makes explicit mention of this papal statement as a “landmark” success for the right-to-die movement.

Today, extraordinary means not only “too burdensome” but too expensive. And the question really is, “Are you, the patient, valuable enough to the community to be worthy of that treatment?”

Ironically, palliative care does not cut down on the costs of health care; it increases the costs by creating jobs for teams of palliative physicians, nurses, chaplains, and social workers; jobs for healthcare preventive groups, consultants, hospice workers, residential-care facility personnel, bereavement specialists, and new government bureaucrats, such as those who staff “Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment” registry offices, and lots of measurement specialists setting “best practices” standards of palliative care, including palliative spirituality, all while seducing vulnerable, trusting citizens to advance the cause of the “new” business of healthcare planning.

Your foremost “right” is the right to life, along with liberty and the ability to seek happiness and eternal salvation. Beware death as a salesman knocking at your door.

Patricia Ryan and Camille Giglio make good points, and doubtless we can find unity in distinctions. I am sure, of course, that the NOR editors hope that among their readers there are more than a few non-Catholics.

To the specifics: Alex Schadenberg, director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, who works tirelessly on the international scene, believes strongly in the value of a broad-based net­work of people opposed to euthanasia and assisted suicide. His website, www.epcc.ca, is well worth visiting.

We can also find much to do in our own backyard. Susan Talamantes Eggman, sponsor of California’s End-of-Life Options Act, which is now working its way through the legislature, stated before the members of the assembly that she is a practicing Catholic and reported meeting with various clergymen as she worked on the bill. Several other supporters of the proposed law did likewise. The right to physician-assisted suicide is part of the California Democratic platform, and many of the people who vote for Democrats are Catholic.

According to the most recent Pew research, 67 percent of white Catholics believe that a person has a moral right to suicide when he is in a great deal of pain with no hope of improvement. Hispanic Catholics show smaller numbers but, like white Catholics, when it comes to having an incurable disease or having a life that is a burden to self or others, many think that suicide is a right. Physician-assisted suicide wins the approval of about half of all white Catholics. The numbers for Hispanic Catholics are still well above a quarter of those polled.

A close look at palliative care would make for an entire book — and it has. Briefly, Camille Giglio is correct: Palliative care is big business and very much a part of the aid-in-dying movement. The vocabulary surrounding it is rife with misuse. Still, her definition is too narrow. The term properly refers to reducing the impact of a disease and easing its symptoms without curing the underlying disease. In itself, palliative care can help suffering and seriously ill patients endure, and need not limit needed medical care. It is a shame that because some misuse the help medicine can offer, others might be deprived of assistance or fear it. Nor has everyone who supports palliative care fallen into a utilitarian trap that would make extraordinary mean “burdensome” or “too expensive.” We have an obligation to protect our lives, to the extent we can, even if it costs us, and to accept suffering if there is no moral means of avoiding it. Is there a risk that in consenting to palliative care or hospice, we leave ourselves open to abuse? Yes, and that is a fact of American life today.

I don’t accept, of course, that all deaths are “humiliating, pain-filled.” Nor need any be, if we rightly order what is true, accept what help medicine offers, and recognize that we are in God’s loving care.

Go west, old man! Go west!

How do you discourage suicide by assisting suicide?

In 1976, Governor Jerry Brown approved a legal right for terminally ill patients to end so-called life-sustaining treatment. (from CalWatchdog article)

The following comes from an October 6 Careful! blog post by Michael Cook:

Ten percent of Americans now have access to assisted suicide after Jerry Brown, governor of California, approved Assembly Bill 15 yesterday.

Assisted suicide had failed in California six times since 1988. But exactly one year ago, on October 6, Compassion & Choices released a superbly-crafted video about Brittany Maynard, a winsome 29-year-old Californian woman with a brain tumor, who had to move to Oregon because assisted suicide was illegal in her own state. It became a YouTube sensation; the tears trickling down her cheeks drowned opposing arguments in a flood of emotion.

And will the new law actually result in fewer people committing suicide as its supporters have promised?

Dramatic new findings about the Oregon experience with physician-assisted suicide (PAS) were published today in the Southern Medical Journal which suggest that this is not true. In a fine-grained statistical analysis of the experience in the four American states where PAS is currently legal British academics David Albert Jones and David Paton show that “the introduction of PAS seemingly induces more self-inflicted deaths than it inhibits”.

The suggestion that legalization reduces the total number of suicides and postpones those that do occur is a popular argument on the right-to-die side. It was first mooted by libertarian economist and jurist Richard Posner and has subsequently been adopted by assisted suicide advocates around the world. It allows advocates of assisted suicide to claim, paradoxically, that they are against suicide. But there is precious little data to support it.

Now the study by Jones and Paton shows that Posner’s argument is plainly wrong. In fact, PAS could actually increase an inclination to suicide in others.

As psychiatrist Aaron Kheriarty points out in an commentary in the same journal: “Several well-studied phenomena in the social sciences and suicide literature suggest that Posner’s hypothesis was dubious, even before empirical testing. You do not discourage suicide by assisting suicide.”

One of the best-studied phenomena of suicide is the Werther effect, named after a disappointed lover who takes his own life in Goethe’s 18th century novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther. The book was phenomenally popular and sparked a rash of copycat suicides throughout Prussia. The dangers of glorifying suicide are so obvious that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in partnership with the National Institute for Mental Health, the World Health Organization, and the Surgeon General recommend the utmost discretion in reporting suicides, lest vulnerable
people succumb to the siren call of suicide.

California’s new law shows that the copycat effect is alive and well. Jerry Brown and California have followed Brittany Marnard over the edge.

The World Congress of Families IX Salt Lake City

The World Congress of Families IX welcomes friends and people of goodwill from all nations to Salt Lake City, Utah, October 27-30, 2015, for the premier global gathering of parents, youth, lawmakers, scholars, religious leaders, and advocates united to affirm, celebrate, and encourage the natural family. Register Now!

The largest gathering of pro-family advocates in the world—and for the first time in history, the global gathering will come to the United States this fall.



Beginning in the mid-1980’s Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Lafayette, Ca. Became the final resting place for 25 abandoned or aborted babies. Soon after that the members of local Oakland Diocese Knights of Columbus began meeting at the cemetery every Saturday to pray for these precious babies.

This photo shows the Director of California Right to Life Education Fund, Cecelia Cody, (front row center) with a group of Knights on Saturday, September 11, 2015. They continue to meet for the rosary at 10:00 AM every week. They invite you to join with them.

Mary Catherine, a new-born, was the first baby to be buried following the discovery of her body in an Antioch park. The Antioch police were never successful in locating the mother of this child. California Right to Life and Birthright provided the burial plot. Mary Catherine’s headstone reads: “Even if a mother forget her child, I will never forget you.” Isaiah: 49.

During the early 1990’s California Right to Life received a phone call from an unidentified male asking if we would receive the preserved bodies of 24 preborn babies in various stages of development for burial. These babies had been discovered in a closet in the back room of a previously rented doctor’s office in the city of Alameda.

Prior to burial there were several weeks of negotiations with the Alameda Coroner’s office which requested that these bodies be turned over to them in order to assure the officials that these babies had not been victims of foul-play or illegal abortions. Their request was refused for fear we would never see the babies again. Apparently the cemetery could not bury the babies until the Coroner had signed off on the bodies.

These babies are buried in a remote corner of Queen of Heaven Cemetery in two very small plots near the statue seen in the background of this photo. Prior to the burial service all the babies were named.

Governor Brown must begin hearing from you beginning September 8th to veto AB15b End-Of-Life Option Act.  916-445-2841 (automated) Or, http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php

Think about this folks.  Everything about the abortion industry is cloaked in hidden meaning. “Reproductive Rights,” Healthcare for women,”  all these phrases are code words for death for a baby.

Palliative Care for seniors means dehydration and starvation and eventual death for the senior or disabled individual.   Neither of these are health care.

Clarke Forsythe, senior legal counsel for Americans United for Life and author of “The Abuse of Discretion,” was speaking at a recent Federalist Society meeting in San Francisco.  It seems that the papers from some of the retired and deceased members of the Supreme Court involved with the Roe v Wade decision are now open for inspection.  Mr. Forsythe wrote a book called “Abuse of Discretion” reporting on what he learned from these papers.

The book begins by declaring that “Roe and Doe began, in the Supreme Court, as a serious procedural mistake resulting from a case in the California Courts referred to as Younger v Harris that left the Justices without any factual record to consider the complex historical, legal, medical and constitutional issues surrounding abortion.”

The important words here being…”without any factual record.”  That may well have been one of the reasons that people like then pro abortion Dr. Bernard Nathanson always claimed that he and his group just made up some figures about the women who died from back alley abortions. When it was realized that this was an improper follow up to that case certain justices, basically said, oh, well, let’s just go on and make this an abortion decision.

Then 20 years later came Planned Parenthood v Casey (former Governor of Pennsylvania) which said that prohibitions against abortion placed undue burdens on a pregnant woman. Again, with little to no factual data. This was followed by The Carhart Decision which claimed that abortion was safer than childbirth for women. Again, no factual data to back it.  This phrase, according to the research conducted by Mr. Forsythe came from one line in an obscure book written by a pro abortion writer whose name was never brought to light.

There were no facts presented to prove that then. There are no facts present today to declare that palliative care is best for terminally ill, disabled or depressed patients, yet that’s the claim being made.

Abortion was never , nor ever will be better or safer than birth; and starving a patient to death will never be better than some pain and discomfort attached to a terminal illness. Palliative Care is DeathCare.

It’s another department within the health care industry authorized to kill innocent human beings because some carefully contrived slogan said life would be an undue burden.


On September 8, AB15b, End of Life Options (formerly SB128) will receive its last legislative approval and be sent to the Governor.  This is the basic authorizing bill giving members of the medical profession (not just doctors) the right to decide if your life is worth the effort to heal or not.

SB19, Lois Wolk, POLST. This is the piece of paper that these DeathCare industry people seek in order to legitimately take away life from ill people.  It, too, is up for a final floor vote on the Assembly floor in the next few days. Call your Assembly member and urge a NO vote.

Getting patients to the point where they will submit to Palliative care is contingent on obtaining the patient’s approval and a signature on a POLST form.  Contained in this and in federal legislation is a section on mandating consultations and to entice the medical profession to hold these consultations. The US Dept of Health requested that the Center for Medicare and Medicaid develop a proposal to add a new payment  schedule to the rules, for consultation fees to be provided by the doctor or other designated medical personnel. (Read further…)

DO NOT ASSUME THAT EITHER OF THESE BILLS ARE BEING HEAVILY OPPOSED BY RELIGIOUS GROUPS ON YOUR BEHALF.  Call your Assembly member yourself, especially the Democrats and most especially the Catholic Democrats.  These two bills got through both houses of the legislature because all these legislators voted for them without reservation

The Revisions to payment policy www.regulations.gov/#1docketDetail;D=CMS-2015=0081
CMS-2015-0081.  Closes its public comment period on September 8th. 

This proposal would authorize Medicare, amending Title XVlll of the Social Security Act to allow the government (we taxpayers) to pay for consultations by government trained consultants and associates to discuss with a patient just how that particular patient (maybe you) would like to end their lives.

Remember: We the taxpayers are paying for killing babies and now the government wants to force us to pay for consultations to convince patients and families to terminate the lives of our senior family members.  But, this is merely a proposal. It needs legislation to appropriate the funding.

S. 1549 by Virginia Senator Mark Warner, (D) MediCare Beneficiaries Illness Care Coordination. Shortened version the Care Planning  Act of 2015. This Act  Appropriates $15M for one year to train, advocate and advertise for the right of a patient with a terminal illness to seek consultation which would be paid for by the taxpayer.

The training of the consultants will be for developing talking points to encourage patients to sign the POLST form. The advocacy and advertising will be to convince people to accept that they have a right to die at an appointed time with the assistance of a medically prescribed drug provided by a pharmacist.

HR 3251 by Iowa Congressman Steve King, (R) Exclude Advance care Planning Under Medicare. Would prohibit amending Title XVlll to include payment for consultations. Cong. King needs your support to fight for a hearing for this bill which is sitting in the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Email to: Richard.Stern@mail.house.gov.

If AB15b passes and the idea of consultations is in the bill, this will become an lobbying tool for Warner to further promote his legislation.

California has had a long history of reckoning the worth of  human life with Utilitarian values.

It began in the early 1900’s with the legalization (along with New York) of the sterilization of Down’s Syndrome children in the state’s mental hospitals. Proceeded through the 1960’s with the Anthony Beilenson(D) Therapeutic Abortion Act, The state Supreme Court Decision, Reproductive Rights v Myers, https://www.aclunc.org/our-work/legal-docket/committee-defend-reproductive-rights-v-myers authorizing minors to contract for abortions and birth control, to the authorization of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine – CIRM  https://www.cirm.ca.gov/ - and the use of fetal cells for research until now, we have a horrific expose of the evil acts performed by Planned Parenthood; and, fetal organ procurement and experimentation businesses such as StemExpress.

But, it doesn’t end there. The wholesale practice of abortion has permeated the laws, medicine, politics,  academia and faith and morals. Dozens of bills get passed every year chipping away at parental rights, elevating community rights and values over the rights of individuals within our society.

We are now facing yet another possible slide down that slippery slope if the Right to Die organizers succeed in getting their AB15x bill by Susan Eggman(D) passed (formerly a Lois Wolk, SB128 bill).

Roe v Wade created a so-called right for women to abort their babies for dire physical and mental health Doe v Bolton, a companion bill expanded the reasons to social and economic reasons. State and federal legislation then made it possible for all taxpayers to pay for this killing which has been expanded by legislators to include every woman, every baby, no reason at all. This happened because it became profitable for legislators to take positions that assured their re-election to office.

Every taxpayer has been made an accomplice 3x over to Planned Parenthood’s brutal killings because we have not fought hard enough to end the tax funding of abortion at either the federal or the state and county levels. Ms O’Donnell, the employee of StemExpress is a good example. According to her testimony on video, she did not want to perform a dissection on a born preborn because she could see the heart still beating, but she was encouraged until she said okay.  This is how one silences otherwise good people.  Get them to become intimately involved in immoral acts or face humiliation by your peers.  Thanks goodness that this young woman found her courage, her moral values and her voice.

But this is not the case, so far with Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, (R-San Ramon) On very important votes regarding human life she has chosen to vote with the Democrats or be absent from the committee hearing.  That was the case on Monday when Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, (R-Murrietta) called for an investigation into the state funding of Planned parenthood. Baker was on that committee but chose to attend another committee hearing, thereby depleting the numbers of required votes to approve the audit.

This is not Baker’s only departure from Republican standards.  She has become, or maybe had herself placed in a strategic swing vote position on the AB15x Right to Die bill. Both the euthanasia groups and the pro life and anti-euthanasia groups have lobbied her extensively, held rallies at her office and written and phoned her office. She continues to require her staff to state that “she is still studying the bill.”  She has had several months to study the bill.  She is stalling, keeping the focus on her.

This was the same approach she took with the mandated vaccination bill, SB277. There she even had herself placed on the bill as the only official Assembly co-sponsor, actively supporting the requirement that non-vaccinated children be prohibited from attending public, private or charter schools.  Her vote on this was seen as an abridgment of parental rights rather than some compassionate appeal to protecting children’s health.

Baker is not the only one who acts like this. Rocky Chavez, (R-Oceanside) is another who votes the way the wind blows.


So, we have come in 48 years to the acceptance of and practice of Utilitarianism in education, medicine, politics and, very sadly, often times in Religion.

In the last few months our office has received calls from desperate family members trying to get help in stopping hospitals from  removing life support from beloved patients, elderly, accident victims, etc.

It may well become necessary to form crisis help type centers to assist family members in preventing the termination of life decisions being demanded by hospitals.  It will require lawyers and physicians willing to learn procedures for aiding family members, and for lawyers who will need to know what legal procedures to be applied in emergency situations.

One weekend our office received a call from a desperate man trying to prevent the local Kaiser hospital in Antioch, Ca. From killing his mother, as he stated it.  The hospital had removed a nasal feeding tube from the mother, but then refused to re-insert a new tube, thereby denying her any nourishment or hydration. The son has a medical power of attorney for health care for his mother and he had signed a POLST form requiring full medical treatment for his mother (that’s the third option on a POLST form).

One doctor, called in to give a second opinion, stated to the son that his POA and the POLST form meant nothing to them. the mother who is in advanced years, was dying, the doctor stated, she should be given morphine and allowed to die. She lost one lb a day while in the hospital. And, besides said the doctor, there was no nurse willing to assist the doctor to reinsert the tube. The son finally got his mother out of the hospital, took her to another Kaiser hospital and they re-inserted the tube.

If nothing else the expose of Planned Parenthood by the http://www.centerformedialprogress.org/

has shown us the depths to which our community standard for moral and ethical values have sunk. Now, with the release of the 8th video we have the revelations by StemExpress, of the value placed on human body parts, rather than on the whole, living human being and the amount of profit to be made from the creation of human life as spare parts.  According to a Crisis Publication article by Anne Hendershott, the procurement of a preborn baby’s fresh liver organ which is then  transferred for a “fee” from Planned Parenthood to a body parts trader who receives approximately $24,000. per liver and its final usage by research institutes.  In the 8th video it records the Director of StemExpress stating that preborn livers are in highest demand and that they could use 50 livers a week.

Our love and fidelity to all who came forward to participate in rallies at Planned Parenthood, or at legislators offices for anti-assisted suicide legislation.  There continues to be many labors of love yet ahead of us.

Randy Thomasson of SaveCalifornia first row, kneeling) and local Pro-Life people paid a visit to the San Ramon office of Assemblywoman Catharine Baker to urge her NO vote on the End-Of-Life-Option Act, AB2x-15.

This is a continuation of the report on California legislation in regard to the assaults on  family and human life and how the state Department of Education and Health play a part in that.

The following bills are, for the most part being held in either the Assembly or Senate Appropriations Committees: Assembly-916-319-2081, Senate-916-651-4101

AB775, David Chiu, (D-S.F.) Reproductive FACT Act. Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency.  Basing his bill on previous legislation enacting a woman’s right-to-choose (including minors) this bill actually challenges the freedom of choice for certain businesses and groups by requiring pro life pregnancy centers to advertise for abortion services at other facilities. In other words, Birthright and other counseling centers would be required to place notices in their offices or at their front doors stipulating that they do not perform abortions and referring women to places that do.

Endorsed by State Attorney General Kamala Harris who has refused to call for an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s fetal sales connections. And 38 other pro abortion groups.  Opposed by 8 Pro Life agencies and “numerous individuals.” LOCATION: Senate Floor. Call your own state Senator or go online to www.leginfo.ca.gov to contact your legislator or read the full bill.

AB101, Louis Alejo, (D-Salinas), Pupil Instruction: Ethnic Studies. Creates three (3) levels of educational oversight committees to improve educational results with an elective type course in Social Studies beginning with pre-schoolers.

Increasing awareness of ethnic groupings while reducing studies of American government and history is apparently Alejo’s method of combating harassment, by taking up class time with indoctrinational material to encourage acceptance.  It passed every committee with overwhelming majorities, including some Republicans, indicating that none of these elected officials have a clue about creating acceptance of others.  LOCATION: Senate Appropriations.

SB695, Kevin De Leon, School Health Education: Sexual Harassment Training. Another Planned Parenthood bill. This bill presumes that Planned Parenthood will solve the sexual harassment problems just like Alejo thinks his bill will solve ethnic harassment.

Mandates inclusion of sexual harassment and violence training in the next health ed. framework.

This is, at least, the 5th segment of health ed. that has been designed, like a tight-fitting dress, to encompass Planned Parenthood’s measurements. Sexual involvement, contraception, HIV instructions, gender identity instruction. Expect PP to be in the schools full time very shortly.

LOCATION: Assembly Appropriations.

AB104, Shirley Weber and SB 77 Education Finance Committee, were merged into the Education Finance: Education Omnibus Trailer Bill. Signed by Gov. Brown on 6/24/15.

It appropriates $3.8 billion in Prop 98 one-time funding, of which $3.2 billion goes to K-12 and $600m to community colleges to implement many of the bills about which CRLC has been reporting and which are held in the Appropriations committees especially regarding child care and development and early childhood education.

It expands involvement in child care and toddler “education.” Invites outside agencies to provide “wrap- around Care.” i.e. full services, Career technical education incentives “pathways”, more free meals for more students, more data collection on students, both minors and adult ed participants. Gives special funds to certain school districts, and much more. But, there is nothing here that comes close to academic improvement or advancement.

AB766, Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, (D-Culver City) Public School Health Center Support Program.

THIS IS A PLANNED PARENTHOOD BILL. This expands school based health centers.

Here is one of the purposes for  getting so many kids onto Medi-Cal. They can then call for funding to provide special assistance and services in schools to “under represented”  students, i.e. children from lower-income families who are on the free lunch programs or receiving insurance coverage through Medi-Cal.

Related bills, SB 118, Liu, renames these centers the School-Based health and Education Partnership Program and creates new funding by claiming to prevent obesity, asthma, alcohol and substance abuse, and mental health.  Once again. Social services in the school, not academic instruction.

SB1025, Tony Thurmond, (D-Oakland, establishes a 3 year pilot program to encourage all of the above and more.

AB1133, Achadjian, sets up more mental health centers in schools. Sounds like he is taking up the efforts started by Sen. Leland Yee before his arrest on criminal charges of graft. Several bills from previous years failed to accomplish this goal, some accomplished portions of this goal – to use the schools to indoctrinate students into the manner of thinking and acting that the state deems appropriate behavior.

We still have two very serious bills, SB 19, POLST, and SB 128, both Lois Wolk bills. SB 128 has been turned into a two year bill meaning that it can be taken up again any time after summer recess but before the end of January. Both bills are in the Assembly Appropriations. SB128 has been turned into a two year bill so it will stay in Appropriations waiting for a vote when the new session starts up in December.

Why does Planned Parenthood seem so reluctant
to provide this information?

1) HOW MUCH of the state tax dollars received each year actually goes toward services for women’s health such as breast cancer detection and services?

2) HOW MUCH for mental health counseling regarding spousal abuse or sexual abuse?

won’t Planned Parenthood report potential sexual abuse of minors?

3) HOW MUCH does this abortion headquarters spend in legislative lobbying for more access to teens and to the taxpayers money?

4) WHY are parents not allowed to view Planned Parenthood’s sexual instruction material for the classroom, or, to sit-in on presentations to students?

5) HOW MUCH does Planned Parenthood actually receive from individual donors as compared to federal, state and local tax dollars?

6) HOW MANY actual abortions, not percentages of total business, is performed at this headquarters?

7) HOW MANY second trimester abortions (that could produce marketable aborted baby parts) were performed at this facility?

8) SHOW US the form that an abortion patient signs whch stipulates that the fetal remains may be distributed to research and experimentation laboratories?

Planned Parenthood has been actively betraying the public trust in its dealings with vulnerable pregnant women and trusting teenagers. The public has a right-to-know what is being done with our tax dollars and to whom, exactly, state officials are giving our money.

PLACE: Planned Parenthood Shasta/Diablo
Corner of Grant and Salvio Sts. Concord, Ca.
PURPOSE: To stand in support of women and all innocent human life which is being abused and misused by Planned Parenthood through its utilitarian promotion of and profiting from abortion as reported by the Center for Medical Progress.

The Center for Medical Progress has released documentation of Planned Parenthood’s failure to comply with Uniform Anatomical Gift Act of 1986 which strictly forbids the selling of body parts for financial gain including human, fetal body parts recovered during abortions.


We are here today at the Concord Planned Parenthood abortion headquarters to demand that they cease and desist providing preborn baby body parts for experimental research.

We, further, protest the continued partnership between this Planned Parenthood abortion facility and the Acalanes School District which provides Planned Parenthood free access to all the students on the Acalanes and Miramonte campuses.

We learned last year that Planned Parenthood was utilizing facilitators connected to Pornographic activities, now we learn that Planned Parenthood as a whole is involved in financial gain from the utilitarian usage of baby body parts.

We also call upon our state and local officials elected who represent the citizens of Contra Costa County to co-sponsor legislation defunding Planned Parenthood’s abortion services and body parts supply business.
