CBS News promotes Planned Parenthood’s $45 million brazen “We Decide 2020″ election campaign to defeat Trump and Pro-Life!

Dear Friends,

Planned Parenthood and their sycophantic media allies are really casting caution to the winds in their drive to defeat President Trump and win dominance in the U.S. Congress, Senate and House, in state elections, and right down to the local school board, ballot initiatives, etc. — with the appointment and confirmation of pro-abortion, pro-Planned-Parenthood federal judges and especially their "crown jewel" being control of the Supreme Court of the U.S. !!!

Please see the following 5 minute 24 second long "news" clip form CBS on Thursday, January 16, by "Reporter" Kate Smith — who appears to be working directly for Planned Parenthood!!!

There is not the slightest pretense of "balance" in this "news" and the two CBS news "anchors" join enthusiastically with Kate Smith in extolling and praising Planned Parenthood, and at least implicitly condemning anyone who opposes Planned Parenthood and their expansion of abortions !!!

Headline: "Planned Parenthood launches $45 million investment in 2020 elections"

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/planned-parenthood-45-million-we-decide-2020-elections-investment-today/

Planned Parenthood states that they are "investing" $45 million in their 2020 election campaigning and brazenly naming this Planned Parenthood campaign: "We Decide 2020"

This 5 minute, 24 second CBS "news" segment looks exactly like an "informercial" for Planned Parenthood !!!

Please view it carefully!

It gives us an early warning on how far Planned Parenthood and their mainstream media allies like CBS and their Democrat political collaborators like all the Democrat presidential candidates and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (both of California) are planning to go to defeat President Trump and all pro-life candidates to the U.S. Senate and House and on down to local school boards and ballot initiatives in their brazen "We Decide 2020" campaign !!!

We need to be more committed than PP to winning for a Culture of Life in the crucial 2020 election year or Planned Parenthood will have even more political power and wealth for the destruction of Life, Youth, Marriage, Family, and Faith than ever before !!!

Holy Spirit inspire, guide, and encourage us to defend all God’s children from mass, pre-natal murder by Planned Parenthood, and to defend all God’s young people from moral corruption by Planned Parenthood and their media collaborators and sycophants, and their Democrat political allies, stooges, and toadies!!!

CRLC’s Director, Camille Giglio clarifies a few pieces of data. Searching the number of births recorded in last in 10 years for California female babies vs male babies is now almost impossible to locate. Some parents are refusing to have a gender identity on birth records; but, mostly the birth rate for both male and female babies is now at its lowest in a long time according to Planned Parenthood’s ads and media interviews. Everybody on the left rejoices because it is lowering the population numbers. 2019 is listed as the lowest overall rate of births in a long time. What everyone fails to mention is that is that women are not less fertile now, but that PP is killing off the conceived children.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD USES PROPAGANDA TO SEDUCE OUR CHILDREN DURING SCHOOL TIME

The new legislative year begins January 6th and the carry-over bills from last term (see article below) will probably be dealt with first.

The link below is to an article in the National Catholic Register. The author of the article, Miss Mary Rose Short has been a long time activist in protecting the lives of the preborn and in the protection of the young, high school- College aged women from the seductive influences of Planned Parenthood. The bill being referred to is SB1030 by Asm Ian Calderon. Pro life groups opposed the bill because of the obvious but not publicly stated Planned Parenthood involvement.

Then it was discovered that through carelessness, one would presume, a loophole showed up in the bill that would permit pro life literature to also be distributed through the bill. When the error was discovered Planned Parenthood quickly registered its opposition to the bill as did a number of its supportive community organizations. This fortunate bit of carelessness exposes, once again, PP’s and it’s supporters extreme bias and prejudice against allowing our youth to have any true “Right to Know” privileges.

Now Pro Lifers support the bill and PP opposes it.

California Right to Life is starting off the new year with a new approach to reporting on legislation and public policy issues. We will continue to report on legislation by sending out weekly notices on bills that also connect one to the bill itself along with pertinent information on how to contact the committee or legislator connected with the bill.

Planned Parenthood Blocks California Bill That Would Help Patients Report Abuse

Assembly Bill 1030, designed to inform female patients about what to expect during pelvic examinations and enable them to identify illegal predatory behavior, has been tabled.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California’s Assembly Bill 1030, designed to inform female patients about what to expect during pelvic examinations and enable them to identify illegal predatory behavior, sailed through the Assembly committees, the Assembly floor and the Senate committees unanimously — seemingly on its way to becoming law.

Then Planned Parenthood submitted a letter of opposition: The bill, introduced this spring, immediately stalled and, two weeks later, was ordered to the “inactive” file.

Never Fear H.E.L.P. is Near
Camille Giglio

11/19/19, Walnut Creek, Ca. Twelve out of 50 of Presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris,(D-San Francisco) bills are sitting in the in the Senate Help, Education, Labor and Pension Committee. This is the Citizens Social/Emotional soft-skills development committee

The next committee to receive her bills (9) is the Senate Judiciary Committee. Of the total number of bills only 7/50 show any movement at all. This is the punish them committee if the citizens and community groups don’t accept the H.E.L.P. bills.

Along with that, a listing of all her votes (over 31 pages of bills) in the committees and floor votes shows that the majority of time she either is listed as a “not-voting” or a “nay.” Vote.

Her bills are, for the most part, merely show pieces to enhance her electability. She should be disciplined for political truancy.

Most of her bills reflect distain for the family, the rule of law and individual freedom, ala the Constitution.

Examples are, the workforce- (Clean School buses (USS1750) family,-Prophylactics for HIV cases (USS 1926) Citizenship,- restrictions on immigration officials authority, (USS 388) Health-Decriminalizing Cannabis, and Do No Harm, Civil Rights Amendment (USS 593.).

In one other bill she is gravely concerned about the psychological condition of endangered species animals that get “seized” by animal control and removed from their owner’s premises.. (USS-513)

The most egregious bill for our concerns regards the family and its education, health and workforce capability USS 2784, a quickly made-up bill submitted on 11/5/19 to the H.E.L.P. Committee. It is entitled: Family Friendly School Policies Grants in the H.E.L.P. Committee.

CONTACT: H.E.L.P. COMMITTEE: 202-224-5376. Also
    Office of Lamar Alexander, Chair: 202-224-4944

 

USS 2784 seeks to amend Title 6 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to provide federal grants to 500 California elementary schools to align the school day with the parental work day hours. In other words, these schools would experiment with the students to see the effects of keeping young students at school from at least 9 to 5 every weekday, providing, at school, the attention, academic assistance, emotional and social requirements for, as the education elitists would like us to believe, good, positive growth, health and maturity. This would also be in effect during the summer.

To adequately provide all the students with this wrap around care would require numerous partnerships with non-academic non-profits and community organizations. They would actually do the providing of services including health care. Of course, health care being merely a code word for reproductive training and resources, would mean daily association with Planned Parenthood type agencies. This brings in the bills on telehealth capabilities, or, students calling outside agencies from school for guidance (thus the need for Harris’s bill on prophylactics for HIV) regarding medications without parental knowledge or input.

This type of bill might well be the way educators and community partners eventually bring all the community services into the school thereby creating what is called the community centered schools.

These stakeholder partners would most likely end up double-dipping into the taxpayer trough of funds because they would be 501© 3 orgs which pay no taxes as well as receiving tax dollars through state and federal agencies such as health, education and welfare, for the extra services. The bill requires the school system to supplement the federal grants with “non-federal” monies which do not include amounts paid by parents. (Section 4701

It would probably also mean increased costs to the schools for food services because this could well mean 3 meals a day year round.

It seems obvious to CRLC that this is merely preparation and practice for the eventual 24/7 housing of our children (think Walden’s Pond) in dormitory style living arrangements, overseen by government trained humanistic house mothers.

Sen. Lamar Alexander, though a Republican, was very supportive of making major changes to education by touting the Goals 2000 amendments to education. changing schools when, years ago, he, too, was running for President.

SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS AND THE JUST CONCLUDED Federal RICO TRIAL OF 5 California PRO LIFE DEFENDANTS.

Please visit our CRLC blog. There you will find in-depth reports and articles concerning the referred-to lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood against the Center for Medical Progress and named co-conspirators.

The impeachment hearings brought by Democrats refuse to allow the Republicans to present evidence in defense of President Trump.The Court of Judge William H Orrick, III, refused to allow the 11 man jury (9 men/2 women) to hear or see the video and written evidence prepared by the defendants lawyers.

Cong. Adam Schiff and Judge William Orrick (an Obama appointee and aggressive advocate for Planned Parenthood use their positions of authority like a big stick without regard for decent language, scandal-mongering, suppression of speech rights by Trump witnesses.

Orrick’s decision to find the 5 defendants guilty of trespass and co-conspiracy ended by the judge assigning an exorbitant fine of $2.2 million against the defendants. Everyone knows that these people can’t meet that requirement from their personal holdings and so must rely on the pro-life community to get that money together. Meaning that we prolife citizens will be paying $2.2 million to Planned Parenthood which we can’t do either.

The House Impeachment Committee members are the evidence that the Democrats absolutely refuse to accept Donald Trump’s Presidential legitimacy and they will go to any lengths to silence and destroy his Presidency. They hope that this will send a message to the citizens of the world that everybody must bow to the power authority and wisdom of the Democrat Party.

END OF LIFE ISSUES.

Also, be aware that the V, Chair of the HELP committee is Sen. Tammy Baldwin, author of

USS 2080, the Palliate Care and Hospice Education and Training Act. This is a bill to advance the pro euthanasia stealth cohorts goal of forcing euthanasia acceptance upon healthcare employees. This bill mandates the inclusion of Hospice and Palliative services into the medical training university programs. This places the schools systems into positions of advocates for forcing planned End of Life care on patients and the elderly deemed, by EOL trained workers, to be no longer helped or cured by active medical procedures.

TO OUR READERS.:

Ca. Right to Life has been tracking legislation since the late 1980s. By 2003 our research and analyses were required to be expanded due to the vast increase in legislation in the areas of life issues and the effects on the family.

From 2003 until now we have tracked over 1100 bills. It is becoming almost a 24/7 workload. We have been happy that we could do this research and perhaps contributed to citizens ability to access their government officials and exercise their Constitutional Rights to be heard.

Justice ABORTED: $2.2 Million Verdict Against Pro-lifers

California has Cong. Adam Schiff attacking President Trump on the federal level plus we have Judge William H. Orrick of the San Francisco federal Civil Court attacking the First Amendment rights of California Pro Life citizens, said Camille Giglio, Director of California Right to Life Committee, Inc.



Justice ABORTED: $2.2 million verdict against pro-lifers

The jury rendered a verdict today in Planned Parenthood v. Center for Medical Progress, awarding plaintiffs Planned Parenthood Federation of America and numerous affiliates $2.2 million in actual and punitive damages.

The jury even found the defendants liable for Planned Parenthood’s outrageous racketeering (RICO) claims. The federal RICO statute was enacted to eradicate organized crime and requires a pattern of certain types of criminal acts. The Gambino and Lucchese crime families were prosecuted under RICO, as was Michael Milken who was convicted of securities fraud. In this case, Planned Parenthood attorneys allege that David Daleiden, Susan Merritt, Albin Rhomberg, Troy Newman, and the other pro-life defendants should be held liable under RICO for making two obviously fake ID’s on a home printer over six years ago.

Rhomberg and Newman had no knowledge of the ID’s, yet the jury found them liable as co-conspirators. This would be laughable, except that the RICO law allows plaintiffs to recover exorbitant treble damages (triple the claimed damages) and attorney fees.

The jury also found that the defendants violated federal recording laws. But, as Life Legal’s Katie Short pointed out in her closing argument, in order for the defendants to be liable for creating and publishing the videos under federal law, Planned Parenthood would have to produce evidence “that the recording was done for the purpose of committing a criminal act in the future….[that] everything done for the whole journalism project, including publishing the video, was somehow criminal, a crime.”

In this case, it’s exactly the opposite: the recordings were made for the purpose of EXPOSING crimes.

To hold people liable for undercover investigative journalism that exposes criminal and unethical behavior is an offense to our constitutional rights and liberties.

Because the judge would not allow the First Amendment as a defense to Planned Parenthood’s claims, the jury held that the defendants were liable for recording or conspiring to record all of the video footage obtained by the Center for Medical Progress.

We are appalled by today’s verdict. It is as though the jury completely disregarded every piece of evidence we produced. Not only does Planned Parenthood engage in illegal and morally repugnant practices, but its agents never bothered to tell the defendants that the conversations about things like "crushing above and crushing below" to get more desirable and salable body parts were confidential.

We will appeal this unjust result and fight to protect the First Amendment rights of investigative journalists to show us what happens behind the veil of powerful corporations like Planned Parenthood, who has relied on a shroud of secrecy to build its multi-billion dollar abortion empire.

Planned Parenthood Baby Body Parts Civil Trial

5 things to know about the Planned Parenthood baby body parts civil trial


Sandra Merritt and David Daleiden outside Superior Court in San Francisco, California, Feb. 11, 2019

ANALYSIS

SAN FRANCISCO, California, October 10, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Almost four years in the making, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America vs. Center for Medical Progress lawsuit pits those who practice, advocate for, and profit from unthinkably cruel and barbaric acts on the tiniest of humans against a few individuals who had the tenacity, courage, resourcefulness, and faith to walk into the heart of darkness to expose trafficking in the brains, hearts, livers, lungs, and limbs of pre-born babies.

The significance of the case cannot be overestimated.

It’s a massive legal battle in which abortion giant Planned Parenthood claims those who say they were gathering evidence of violent crimes were actually engaged in a criminal conspiracy against it.

In preparation, at least 10 lawyers for the plaintiffs and 13 for the defense have spent hundreds of hours producing thousands of pages of documents, deposing witnesses, and racking up legal bills in the millions of dollars.

The final result now depends on 12 jurors in the U.S. district courthouse and what they will make of the evidence put before them during the trial, which began October 2 and will continue until at least November 8.

Here are five things to know about the biggest pro-life trial in decades as it gets underway:

1) What it’s really about: This lawsuit is Planned Parenthood’s desperate attempt to permanently discredit the undercover videos the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released in 2015 that exposed its part in trafficking baby body parts. The casual brutality of abortionists discussing crushing unborn babies and haggling over the price of fetal organs shocked the world and Planned Parenthood wants to convey that those who exposed them – not their giant abortion corporation – are in the wrong.

It’s also a retaliatory action: Planned Parenthood wants to to crush the pro-life advocates who went undercover and exposed them. The plaintiffs allege CMP’s project lead David Daleiden, undercover journalists Sandra Merritt and Geraldo Adrian Lopez, and founding board members Troy Newman and Albin Rhomberg, committed 15 crimes while carrying out the undercover video project, ranging from breach of contract to racketeering. They claim CMP is liable for paying for everything Planned Parenthood’s personnel bought, such as security upgrades and staff counselling hotlines, after they realized they’d been recorded.

But one thing Planned Parenthood is not claiming is defamation, because that would require it produce all the evidence it has for that claim during the discovery phase of the case, prior to trial. Since, in fact, the CMP videos are not defamation, evidence of Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue harvesting practices and pricing is not something it wants aired publicly.

2) Who the defendants are: Daleiden, 30, developed and ran the undercover sting operation and is the high-profile, public face of CMP. Newman, a veteran pro-life activist, is well-known as the president of Operation Rescue. Merritt, 66, a grandmother who ran a home business and was a part-time teacher, is familiar as co-defendant with Daleiden in an ongoing California state criminal prosecution. Lopez, 28, is employed by the Navy as a hospital corpsman in an intensive care neonatal unit, and got involved in the undercover operation after Daleiden met him when he worked at Starbucks and hired him to transcribe the videos. Rhomberg is a longtime pro-life advocate and investigator who did graduate studies in high-energy particle physics, taught physics at the University of Wisconsin, and worked in the space program at Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory and at the Johnson Space Flight Center in Texas: in other words, he’s a rocket scientist.

3) It’s a jury trial in San Francisco: Planned Parenthood brought its case in San Francisco, the most liberal district in the country. The nine men and three women selected after a closed door one-on-one with Judge William Orrick will make their conclusions based only on what they hear and see in the courtroom. In a jury trial, plaintiffs and defendants may pursue a line of questioning that lets jurors hear testimony that is ultimately stricken but could still influence their judgement, or bring up points that have little legal merit but might affect the jury emotionally. Significantly, Orrick isn’t letting the jury hear the audio from any of the undercover videos at the center of the case. The judge thinks the conversation in the videos, which record Planned Parenthood staff talking about harvesting baby body parts, would be “prejudicial.” In other words, if the jurors could hear what was being discussed in the videos, they might be so disgusted with Planned Parenthood that they would no longer be able to be impartial.

The defense is arguing that the audio is critical to their case. First, the content of the conversations corroborates their claim that they believed Planned Parenthood staff were committing violent crimes against people. More importantly, the audio conveys better than the video the un-confidential nature of the conversations. Seeking to uncover evidence of violent crimes against people is an exception to California’s law against recording without consent, and, if conversations are not confidential, there is no consent requirement.

There’s a chance that Orrick’s censorship could sway the jury toward the defense since they can see that the defense wants the videos shown while Planned Parenthood wants to talk about how awful they are but not show them.

4) The judge is biased and should have disqualified himself: It’s only the early days of the trial but Orrick’s conduct already vindicates the defense’s 2018 petition to the Ninth Circuit Court to have him disqualified, after he refused to disqualify himself at their request. His ties to Planned Parenthood are well-known (Orrick was on the board of a charitable institution that houses a Planned Parenthood abortion center) and his deferring to Planned Parenthood has led to daily early-morning battles between him and the defense lawyers before the jurors enter the courtroom.

Orrick has decreed that abortion and fetal tissue procurement are not relevant to the trial, his rulings fluctuate, and he arbitrarily imposed what he admitted were not federal rules but “the Orrick Rules,” which prohibit witnesses from speaking to their lawyers for all the time they are under oath. The defense team claims this impinges on their clients’ Sixth Amendment right to effective representation of counsel and lawyer/client privilege.

He’s also granted Planned Parenthood incredible leeway in conducting their case. One of the more outrageous things about this case is that Planned Parenthood includes or discards claims for damages as it benefits them, in order to keep evidence incriminating it out of the courtroom.

5) The defense lawyers are the unsung heroes: There are 13 lawyers from four law firms and four pro-life legal associations representing among them the five individual defendants, as well as CMP and its alter-ego BioMax. Almost all are away from their homes and their families to work exhausting hours over six weeks to put on a case within the frustrating constraints Orrick has imposed. They also must negotiate the conflicting priorities within their own team as required by their specific clients. Yet they all demonstrate a high degree of competence, graciousness, and a determination to win despite the odds.

Planned Parenthood Video Trial: Unjust Verdict


Click to watch a short video of Katie Short and Albin Rhomberg commenting outside the court house about the unjust jury verdict in the Planned Parenthood Video Trial, just after it happened on Friday, November 15, 2019, in the Courtroom of Federal District Judge William H. Orrick, III, in the San Francisco Phillip Burton Federal Building and United States Court House in San Francisco.

Chemical Abortion Experience

 

This is a true rendition, as shown in the movie Unplanned, of what takes place when a pregnant woman swallows the abortion pill referred to as RU486. It is this pill and the results depicted in the movie that will begin to take place on California University and college campuses (32 in all) next year due to Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature attached to Senate bill 24, signed into law on October 12, 2019.

The bill was authored by state Senator Connie Leyva, (D) and approved by every Democrat Assembly and Senate member in California’s Legislature.

The woman requesting the RU486 pill must be about 8 weeks pregnant for the pill’s results to take effect. This is different than the “Morning-after pill” which can be taken the morning after sexual activity as a preventive move.


 
 
Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
- St. Pius X, Jucunda Sane, March 12, 1904
