  • AND NOW YOUR HOST, JORDAN SEKULOW!
  • 00:00:29.160 --> 00:00:32.150
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:32.160 --> 00:00:34.220
  • JORDAN SEKULOW: YOU TALK ABOUT TURMOIL
  • 00:00:34.230 --> 00:00:37.030
  • INSIDE THE NUMBER ONE ABORTION
  • 00:00:37.040 --> 00:00:38.170
  • PROVIDER IN THE COUNTRY, THE NUMBER ONE ABORTION ADVOCACY
  • 00:00:38.180 --> 00:00:42.120
  • ORGANIZATION IN THE COUNTRY, THE NUMBER ONE DONATOR TO
  • 00:00:42.130 --> 00:00:46.150
  • PRO-ABORTION CANDIDATES IN THE COUNTRY, THE NUMBER ONE ABORTION
  • 00:00:46.160 --> 00:00:50.190
  • PROVIDER IN THE WORLD DECIDES TO OUST THEIR NEW PRESIDENT AFTER
  • 00:00:50.200 --> 00:00:54.290
  • JUST EIGHT MONTHS ON THE JOB BECAUSE QUOTE, SHE WANTED TO
  • 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:59.050
  • FOCUS ON THE HEALTH CARE FOCUS OF ABORTION AND NOT POLITICS.
  • 00:00:59.060 --> 00:01:04.120
  • WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT PLANNED PARENTHOOD? THEIR MAIN
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:08.030
  • FOCUS, THEIR HEAD OF THE ORGANIZATION, NOT THE HEAD OF
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:11.040
  • THEIR POLITICAL WING, BY THE WAY, THE HEAD OF THEIR
  • 00:01:11.050 --> 00:01:13.120
  • ORGANIZATION, WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT? POLITICS! THE POLITICS OF
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:18.160
  • ABORTION; NOT HEALTH CARE. THEY'VE LOST THAT ISSUE.
  • 00:01:18.170 --> 00:01:22.250
  • ABORTION IS NOT HEALTH CARE. AND I THINK THAT THEIR CORE LEADERS
  • 00:01:22.260 --> 00:01:27.280
  • REALIZE THEY WERE JUST LOSING AND LOSING UNDER THIS NEW
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:32.160
  • PRESIDENT, WHO WANTED TO TRY TO TAKE THEM IN A MORE MODERN
  • 00:01:32.170 --> 00:01:35.200
  • DIRECTION AWAY FROM ABORTION SO THAT MAYBE THEY COULD BE
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:39.040
  • ELIGIBLE FOR SOME OF THESE FEDERAL FUNDS THAT THEY HAVE NOW
  • 00:01:39.050 --> 00:01:42.090
  • BEEN DEFUNDED. SO, NOT ONLY HAS PLANNED PARENTHOOD LOST, JUST
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:46.020
  • THIS WEEK, 60 MILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDING, AFTER LOSING IN THE
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:49.210
  • NINTH CIRCUIT TWICE, THINK ABOUT THAT FOLKS, LOSING IN THE NINTH
  • 00:01:49.220 --> 00:01:52.150
  • CIRCUIT TWICE. AND PLANNED PARENTHOOD OPERATES ABOUT HALF
  • 00:01:52.160 --> 00:01:57.110
  • THE ABORTION FACILITIES OF THE U.S., BUT, LOOK, THE DATA ON
  • 00:01:57.120 --> 00:02:01.040
  • THIS IS PRETTY SHOCKING. 40 ABORTION CLINICS HAVE CLOSED IN
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:05.130
  • 2018. SO, JUST IN THE RECENT NUMBERS THAT WE HAVE FROM LAST
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:09.020
  • YEAR, 79 PERCENT OF ALL ABORTION CLINICS OPENED IN 1991 HAVE SHUT
  • 00:02:09.030 --> 00:02:15.170
  • DOWN. NOW, THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS HAVE GONE UP, BUT THE
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:19.150
  • NUMBER OF ABORTION PROVIDERS AND CLINICS OFFERING ABORTION, AND
  • 00:02:19.160 --> 00:02:23.110
  • EVEN STATES THAT HAVE ABORTION CLINICS, HAS DRASTICALLY
  • 00:02:23.120 --> 00:02:27.110
  • DECLINED BECAUSE WE ARE WINNING THIS DEBATE AMONGST PEOPLE,
  • 00:02:27.120 --> 00:02:32.120
  • WE'RE WINNING THIS DEBATE IN THE COURTS. AND THAT IS WHY JUDICIAL
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:35.010
  • NOMINATIONS ARE IMPORTANT. IT IS WHY SCIENCE IS IMPORTANT. AND IT
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:38.160
  • IS WHY KEEPING UP THE PRESSURE ON THE GROUPS LIKE PLANNED
  • 00:02:38.170 --> 00:02:41.230
  • PARENTHOOD WHO KILL UNBORN CHILDREN IS SO IMPORTANT. AND
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:45.080
  • WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT IT TODAY ON JAY SEKULOW LIVE BECAUSE I
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:47.280
  • THINK WHEN YOU SEE THIS KIND OF TURMOIL, AT WHAT IS AN
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:50.230
  • ORGANIZATION THAT WAS USED TO HAVING, YOU KNOW, ITS LONG-TERM
  • 00:02:50.240 --> 00:02:54.140
  • 12-YEAR LEADER, CECILE RICHARDS, OUT THERE, NOT ONLY AS AN
  • 00:02:54.150 --> 00:02:58.270
  • ABORTION ADVOCATE, BUT AS A WOMEN'S RIGHTS ADVOCATE AND KIND
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:02.110
  • OF MUDDYING THE WATERS THERE, WHILE STILL TAKING THE VERY
  • 00:03:02.120 --> 00:03:05.110
  • EXTREME PRO-ABORTION STANCE, THEY TRY TO BRING IN, INSTEAD OF
  • 00:03:05.120 --> 00:03:08.150
  • A POLITICAL ACTOR, A TRADE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL, A DOCTOR
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:12.160
  • FROM HARVARD, I THOUGHT, TO TRY AND CHANGE THE WAY PLANNED
  • 00:03:12.170 --> 00:03:16.200
  • PARENTHOOD WAS SEEN, THAT DID NOT GO OVER WELL WITH THE
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:19.090
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD BOARD. THIS IS FROM THE HEAD OF PLANNED
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:20.240
  • PARENTHOOD. THEY TWEETED IT OUT, LEANA WEN, I JUST LEARNED FROM
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:25.080
  • THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD BOARD THAT THEY ENDED MY EMPLOYMENT AT
  • 00:03:25.090 --> 00:03:28.190
  • A SECRET MEETING. WE WERE ENGAGED IN GOOD-FAITH
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:31.170
  • NEGOTIATIONS ABOUT MY DEPARTURE, SO SHE WAS ON THE WAY OUT, BASED
  • 00:03:31.180 --> 00:03:35.220
  • ON PHILOSOPHICAL DIFFERENCES OVER THE DIRECTION AND FUTURE OF
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:38.100
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD. MY STATEMENT TO COME SHORTLY. HER STATEMENT
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:42.020
  • SAYS THAT SHE WANTED PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO BE A HEALTH CARE
  • 00:03:42.030 --> 00:03:45.160
  • ORGANIZATION THAT PROVIDES ESSENTIAL PRIMARY PREVENTATIVE
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:48.190
  • CARE TO MILLIONS AND NOT JUST FOCUS ON ABORTION AND POLITICS.
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:53.260
  • THAT WAS REJECTED BY THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD BOARD. HERE'S WHY:
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:57.280
  • THEY'RE LOSING IN POLITICS, THEY'RE LOSING IN THE COURTS,
  • 00:03:57.290 --> 00:04:02.080
  • THEY'RE LOSING PUBLIC SUPPORT, THEY WANT TO SELL FETAL BODY
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:05.130
  • PARTS. REMEMBER, THEY WANTED ABORTION EVEN AFTER BIRTH? AND
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:08.170
  • SHE WAS DEFENDING THAT, BY THE WAY, WHEN VIRGINIA GOVERNOR
  • 00:04:08.180 --> 00:04:10.260
  • NORTHAM DID THAT. THERE'S A LOT TO CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT AND
  • 00:04:10.270 --> 00:04:13.260
  • DISCUSS IN THIS FIGHT FOR LIFE AND THE FIGHT FOR THE UNBORN.
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:16.150
  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK ON THE BROADCAST.
  • 00:04:16.160 --> 00:04:19.160
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:26.000
  • JORDAN SEKULOW: I THINK ABOUT THIS STORY WITH PLANNED
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:27.270
  • PARENTHOOD AND I JUST WANT TO REMIND YOU ALL, IF YOU'RE ON OUR
  • 00:04:27.280 --> 00:04:30.220
  • EMAIL LIST, YOU'LL KNOW WE'RE IN FEDERAL COURT TODAY AGAINST
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:33.050
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD. THEY'VE OUSTED THEIR PRESIDENT BUT
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:36.010
  • THEY'RE STILL A BILLION DOLLAR-A-YEAR ORGANIZATION SO
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:38.250
  • THEY'RE FIGHTING BACK AGAINST ANYMORE RELEASE OF THOSE VIDEOS.
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:45.250
  • IN FACT, TRYING TO PUNISH THOSE WHO EXPOSED THE SALE OF FETAL
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:48.160
  • BODY PARTS THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD WAS ENGAGED IN. THE
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:50.170
  • FACT THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD WENT SO FAR AS TO CHANGING THEIR
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:53.140
  • ABORTION PROCEDURES SO THEY COULD PRESERVE MORE OF THE BABY
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:57.190
  • PARTS THAT THEY KILLED SO THAT THEY COULD PRESERVE MORE OF THE
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:05:03.120
  • ORGANS TO SELL FOR RESEARCH. AND YOU KNOW WHAT THE TRUMP
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:08.000
  • ADMINISTRATION SAID? WE'RE NOT GOING TO FUND ANYMORE OF THIS
  • 00:05:08.010 --> 00:05:11.110
  • RESEARCH ANYMORE. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAD BEEN FUNDING IT
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:13.220
  • THROUGH GRANTS TO UNIVERSITIES AND SCHOOLS. THOSE GRANTS HAVE
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:17.060
  • ALL BEEN STOPPED FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THE TRUMP
  • 00:05:17.070 --> 00:05:20.070
  • ADMINISTRATION HAS DEFUNDED PLANNED PARENTHOOD THROUGH TITLE
  • 00:05:20.080 --> 00:05:23.010
  • 10. THEY WERE READY TO DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD EVEN BROADER
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:26.060
  • BUT IT WAS ONE REPUBLICAN, WHO'S NO LONGER WITH US, WHO STOOD IN
  • 00:05:26.070 --> 00:05:29.210
  • THE WAY OF THAT, SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN. SO PRESIDENT TRUMP IS
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:34.050
  • READY TO FULLY DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD. HE'S JUST GOTTA HAVE
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:36.080
  • A CONGRESS WILLING TO STICK BY HIM TO DO IT. THERE'S NOTHING IN
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:39.120
  • THE LAW, NOTHING IN THE CONSTITUTION THAT REQUIRES THE
  • 00:05:39.130 --> 00:05:42.030
  • U.S. GOVERNMENT AND THE U.S. TAXPAYER TO FUND PLANNED
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:46.010
  • PARENTHOOD ANYTHING. AND RIGHT NOW WE PROVIDE HALF OF THAT
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:48.220
  • BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET. NOW SIXTY MILLION DOLLARS OF IT HAS BEEN
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:52.140
  • LOST. THE CLINICS ARE CLOSING. IN FACT, FORTY ABORTION CLINICS
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:55.110
  • CLOSED JUST LAST YEAR. SEVENTY NINE PERCENT OF ALL ABORTION
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:06:00.080
  • CLINICS THAT WERE OPEN IN 1991 HAVE SHUT DOWN BECAUSE OF NEW
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:04.250
  • STATE LAWS REQUIRING, AGAIN, HIGHER LEVELS OF CARE, CLEANER
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:09.220
  • CLINICS. AND AGAIN, WE ARE JUST BEGINNING TO WIN THIS, BUT I
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:16.020
  • THINK THE TIDE IS JUST TURNING TO THE PRO-LIFE SIDE. IT'S TAKEN
  • 00:06:16.030 --> 00:06:19.070
  • MANY DECADES AND LOG BATTLES, BUT IT IS TURNING, THE TIDE IS
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:24.250
  • TURNING. LET ME GO RIGHT TO THE PHONES. LARRY IN INDIANA ON LINE
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:28.260
  • TWO. LARRY, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:06:28.270 --> 00:06:31.200
  • -THANKS FOR TAKING MY CALL. I THINK THIS DECISION TO LET THIS
  • 00:06:31.210 --> 00:06:35.170
  • INDIVIDUAL GO FROM THEIR ORGANIZATION JUST SIMPLY LAYS
  • 00:06:35.180 --> 00:06:39.120
  • THERE AGENDA BARE TO A POLITICAL AGENDA. AND ORIGINALLY WHEN THEY
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:43.070
  • CALLED IT WOMEN'S HEALTH CARE, TRIED TO JUSTIFY THAT AT THE
  • 00:06:43.080 --> 00:06:46.140
  • BEGINNING, THEY'RE GOING TO FIND IT HARD PRESSED, IF NOT
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:48.200
  • IMPOSSIBLE, TO GO BACK TO THAT EXCUSE, AS I CALL IT. -YEAH,
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:53.140
  • WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT, LARRY? THIS IS WHAT THE KEY DIFFERENCE WAS,
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:56.220
  • DR. WEN, THE FIRST PHYSICIAN TO LEAD THE ORGANIZATION IN
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:07:01.020
  • DECADES, THIS IS FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES, SAID SHE BELIEVED
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:03.200
  • QUOTE, THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT ABORTION CARE, SO, I MEAN, SHE'S
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:06.030
  • VERY PRO-ABORTION, IS TO BE CLEAR THAT IT IS NOT A POLITICAL
  • 00:07:06.040 --> 00:07:09.170
  • ISSUE BUT A HEALTH CARE ONE AND THAT WE CAN EXPAND SUPPORT FOR
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:12.150
  • REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS. BUT THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS SAID, NO, YOU
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:16.070
  • HAVE TO HAVE AN AGGRESSIVE POLITICAL LEADER TO COMBAT THE
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:19.090
  • CURRENT EFFORTS TO ROLL BACK ACCESS TO ABORTION. I THINK WHAT
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:22.150
  • IT IS, I'LL GO TO YOU, WES, FIRST THEN TO HARRY, WES,
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:25.230
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS SCARED. THEY ARE SEEING LOSSES IN THE
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:30.110
  • NINTH CIRCUIT. THEY USED TO BE VERY FRIENDLY TO THEM. THEY'RE
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:33.120
  • SEEING NEW JUSTICES ON THE SUPREME COURT. THEY'RE SEEING
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:36.270
  • PUBLIC SUPPORT FALL FOR THEM. THEY'RE SEEING THE EXPOSURE LIKE
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:40.040
  • THE FETAL BODY PARTS SALES, THINGS THAT WERE REALLY JUST
  • 00:07:40.050 --> 00:07:42.090
  • DISTURBING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND GROTESQUE TO THE
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:45.050
  • AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THEY DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR WITH THEIR
  • 00:07:45.060 --> 00:07:47.170
  • TAXPAYER DOLLARS. AND THAT WOULD MEAN THAT IF THEY ULTIMATELY
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:50.040
  • LOSE THAT, THEY'VE LOST HALF THEIR BUDGET. SO, THEY ARE IN
  • 00:07:50.050 --> 00:07:53.240
  • CRISIS MODE. WESLEY SMITH: YEAH, THEY REALLY ARE. PLANNED
  • 00:07:53.250 --> 00:07:56.110
  • PARENTHOOD IS IN TROUBLE. ABORTION IS THEIR MOST LUCRATIVE
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:59.200
  • BUSINESS. AND WHAT YOU'VE JUST INDICATED, JORDAN, IS A CHANGING
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:02.240
  • CULTURAL LANDSCAPE. LAST WEEK A PEW RESEARCH POLL INDICATED THAT
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:06.280
  • AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF AMERICANS, OVER SEVENTY PERCENT,
  • 00:08:06.290 --> 00:08:09.280
  • FAVOR SOME LIMITS ON ABORTION. THE YOUNGER GENERATION, WHICH
  • 00:08:09.290 --> 00:08:13.120
  • ARE COMING INTO THEIR CHILDBEARING YEARS NOW, ARE
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:16.060
  • OVERWHELMINGLY AGAINST ABORTION, EXCEPT IN RARE CASES, LIKE RAPE,
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:19.170
  • INCEST, THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER. AND 79 PERCENT OF ABORTION
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:24.190
  • CLINICS THAT WERE OPEN IN 1991 HAVE NOW CLOSED. IT IS A
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:28.120
  • CHANGING CULTURAL LANDSCAPE. YOU HAVE 12 STATES THAT HAVE PASSED
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:31.120
  • LAWS RESTRICTING ABORTION. SOME CLINICS HAVE CLOSED, HAVE BEEN
  • 00:08:31.130 --> 00:08:34.210
  • CLOSED, BECAUSE THEY LACK SAFETY AND HEALTH PROCEDURES TO PROTECT
  • 00:08:34.220 --> 00:08:39.130
  • THE LIFE OF THE WOMAN GOING THROUGH THE ABORTION. MANY
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:41.210
  • STATES HAVE REFUSED TO FUND AT THE STATE LEVEL ABORTIONS
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:45.020
  • ANYMORE. IT IS A CHANGING CULTURAL LANDSCAPE, AND I THINK
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:49.100
  • IT'S VERY TELLING WHEN A WOMAN, LIKE DOCTOR WEN, IS TOO
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:53.100
  • MODERATE, TOO MODERATE EVEN THOUGH SHE SUPPORTED GOVERNOR
  • 00:08:53.110 --> 00:08:56.210
  • NORTHAM IN HIS, YOU KNOW, SUPPORT OF ABORTION AT THE POINT
  • 00:08:56.220 --> 00:09:01.040
  • OF BIRTH, THAT SHE IS TOO MODERATE FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:04.070
  • THAT IS JUST SO VERY TELLING. AND YOU'RE SO RIGHT. WHEN THE
  • 00:09:04.080 --> 00:09:06.240
  • NINTH CIRCUIT COURT REFUSED TO BLOCK THIS NEW TITLE 10 RULE,
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:11.120
  • THAT IS ALSO VERY, VERY TELLING. AND OF COURSE, THE FIFTH
  • 00:09:11.130 --> 00:09:14.140
  • CIRCUIT, A WHILE BACK, THEY FOUND THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD
  • 00:09:14.150 --> 00:09:17.060
  • VIOLATED FEDERAL STANDARDS REGARDING FETAL TISSUE RESEARCH
  • 00:09:17.070 --> 00:09:20.250
  • AND MEDICAL ETHICS BECAUSE THEY WERE ENCOURAGING DOCTORS TO
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:24.140
  • CHANGE THE ABORTION PROCEDURE IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE ORGANS SO
  • 00:09:24.150 --> 00:09:29.050
  • THEY COULD BE GIVEN FOR RESEARCH, AND LIKE YOU SAID,
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:31.220
  • FREQUENTLY SOLD FOR RESEARCH. -RIGHT NOW I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:09:31.230 --> 00:09:34.130
  • ONE OF THE ACLJ DOCUMENTARY FILMS. TAKE A LOOK AT ABORTION,
  • 00:09:34.140 --> 00:09:38.060
  • INC.
  • 00:09:38.070 --> 00:09:40.290
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:46.010
  • -IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT 3 PERCENT,
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:48.090
  • ACCORDING TO YOUR WEBSITE AND YOUR TESTIMONY TODAY, 3 PERCENT
  • 00:09:48.100 --> 00:09:50.240
  • OF THE SERVICES THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD OFFERS OUR ABORTION
  • 00:09:50.250 --> 00:09:54.200
  • SERVICES. IS THAT CORRECT? -THREE PERECENT OF THE SERVICES
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:57.150
  • DELIVERED, I MEAN, OF THE TOTAL SERVICES. -BUT YET YOU SAY THAT
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:10:01.060
  • YOU DON'T HAVE THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF MONEY, YOU CAN'T GIVE THIS
  • 00:10:01.070 --> 00:10:05.190
  • COMMITTEE THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT YOU MAKE OR RECEIVE
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:10.100
  • FOR ABORTIONS. IS THAT CORRECT? -IT'S BECAUSE THE NATIONAL
  • 00:10:10.110 --> 00:10:12.130
  • OFFICE DOESN'T, AS YOU KNOW, OR MAY NOT KNOW, BUT THE NATIONAL
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:15.110
  • OFFICE DOESN'T PROVIDE HEALTH CARE SERVICES. FIFTY-NINE
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:17.170
  • AFFILIATES PROVIDE A VARIETY OF HEALTHCARE SERVICES, SO THAT
  • 00:10:17.180 --> 00:10:20.140
  • WOULD BE EVERY SINGLE ORGANIZATION WOULD BE, -BUT
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:23.070
  • YOUR AFFILIATES GATHER THAT INFORMATION, SO YOU WOULD HAVE
  • 00:10:23.080 --> 00:10:25.280
  • ACCESS TO THAT. -WELL, I'M SURE THEY HAVE IT. I DON'T HAVE IT
  • 00:10:25.290 --> 00:10:28.120
  • MYSELF. -2.7 MILLION WOMEN AND MEN ARE SERVED BY PLANNED
  • 00:10:28.130 --> 00:10:33.050
  • PARENTHOOD, ACCORDING TO YOUR TESTIMONY. IS THAT CORRECT? 2.7?
  • 00:10:33.060 --> 00:10:36.140
  • -THAT'S CORRECT. -ANNUALLY YOU PROVIDE, ACCORDING TO YOUR
  • 00:10:36.150 --> 00:10:40.110
  • REPORT, 327.000 PLUS ABORTIONS LAST YEAR, ACCORDING TO YOUR
  • 00:10:40.120 --> 00:10:46.160
  • ANNUAL REPORT. I DO THE MATH. 2.7 MILLION PEOPLE, 327.000
  • 00:10:46.170 --> 00:10:53.280
  • ABORTIONS, THAT COMES UP TO 12 PERCENT. SO HOW DO YOU GET 3
  • 00:10:53.290 --> 00:10:58.250
  • PERCENT? AND THESE ARE YOUR NUMBERS. WHY IS IT NOT 12
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:03.000
  • PERCENT? -ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAPPENS WHEN A WOMAN COMES
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:05.230
  • INTO PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS THAT THEY WILL GO THROUGH A WHOLE
  • 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:09.080
  • SERIES OF PROCEDURES. SO, THEY ARE THERE TO HAVE AN ABORTION,
  • 00:11:09.090 --> 00:11:13.080
  • BUT THEY HAVE TO BE EXAMINED. THEY, OFTENTIMES, WILL GET SOME
  • 00:11:13.090 --> 00:11:19.100
  • SORT OF A PHYSICAL EXAMINATION. THEY'LL GET A PREGNANCY TEST.
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:25.240
  • EVERY STEP ALONG THE WAY IS COUNTED AS A SEPARATE PROCEDURE
  • 00:11:25.250 --> 00:11:30.160
  • SO THAT, WHEN PLANNED PARENTHOOD ANNOUNCES THAT THAT ONLY 3
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:35.080
  • PERCENT OF THEIR WORK IS ACTUALLY ABORTIONS, THEY'RE
  • 00:11:35.090 --> 00:11:39.050
  • SKEWING THE NUMBERS BECAUSE THEY'RE COUNTING 8-10-12
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:46.240
  • PROCEDURES, THAT ARE ALL JUST LEADING UP TO THE ABORTION, AS
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:49.160
  • SEPARATE PROCEDURES. AND THEY ARE, OF COURSE, NOT. -THE
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:54.000
  • PROBLEM THAT HAS ARISEN AND WHY WE CONTINUE TO LOOK AT THIS, AND
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:58.150
  • I THINK THE REASON IT IS SUCH A DEBATE, WHEN YOU LOOK AT AN
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:02.260
  • ENTITY LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD, AND THEY DO ABOUT ONE-THIRD OF
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:06.160
  • ALL THE ABORTIONS THAT ARE DONE IN THE COUNTRY, THEY RECEIVE
  • 00:12:06.170 --> 00:12:12.030
  • MONEY AND THEY SAY, WELL, BUT IT'S NOT USED FOR ABORTION
  • 00:12:12.040 --> 00:12:17.060
  • SERVICES. BUT THEY DO NOT DECOUPLE THOSE FUNDS AND MONEY
  • 00:12:17.070 --> 00:12:24.040
  • IS FUNGIBLE. -THE IDEA THAT THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO SUBSIDIZE
  • 00:12:24.050 --> 00:12:29.120
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN ORDER FOR WOMEN TO RECEIVE HEALTH CARE IS
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:32.230
  • SUCH A MYTH. WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF
  • 00:12:32.240 --> 00:12:38.060
  • PROVIDERS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, FROM FEDERALLY QUALIFIED
  • 00:12:38.070 --> 00:12:42.040
  • HEALTH CENTERS, RURAL PUBLIC HEALTH CENTERS, HOSPITAL HEALTH
  • 00:12:42.050 --> 00:12:45.260
  • SYSTEMS, COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENTS, PRIVATE PHYSICIANS
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:49.140
  • WHO ACCEPT GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY PROGRAMS LIKE MEDICAID, THERE
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:53.120
  • ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PROVIDERS OUT THERE THAT WILL
  • 00:12:53.130 --> 00:12:55.260
  • SEE LOW-INCOME WOMEN COMPARED TO ONLY ABOUT 650 PLANNED
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:12:59.110
  • PARENTHOOD FACILITIES. -WELL, I THINK WOMEN'S HEALTH CARE IS
  • 00:12:59.120 --> 00:13:01.240
  • IMPORTANT. I THINK FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS TOWARDS WOMEN'S
  • 00:13:01.250 --> 00:13:04.130
  • HEALTH CARE IS IMPORTANT. COMMUNITY-BASED CLINICS ARE A
  • 00:13:04.140 --> 00:13:06.130
  • BIG WAY OF DOING THAT. SO, THERE'S A LOT OF WAYS THAT YOU
  • 00:13:06.140 --> 00:13:08.220
  • COULD GET HEALTH CARE INTO THE COMMUNITY THROUGH EXISTING
  • 00:13:08.230 --> 00:13:11.000
  • COMMUNITY HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS, WHICH DO NOT REQUIRE PLANNED
  • 00:13:11.010 --> 00:13:13.210
  • PARENTHOOD TO BE IN THE BUSINESS OF ABORTION. -ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:16.120
  • THAT WE CAN START WITH IN DEALING WITH THE ABORTION
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:19.120
  • INDUSTRY IS SIMPLY WOMEN'S HEALTH. IF WE WILL REQUIRE
  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:26.060
  • ABORTION CLINICS TO ADHERE TO THE SAME STANDARDS AS A
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:29.260
  • PEDIATRICIANS OFFICE OR A DENTIST'S OFFICE, OR TO MAKE
  • 00:13:29.270 --> 00:13:33.230
  • SURE THAT THE STAFFERS ADHERE TO OSHA REGULATIONS, THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:38.220
  • A HUGE LEAP FORWARD. RIGHT NOW WOMEN'S LIVES ARE AT RISK
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:42.140
  • BECAUSE OF ANTIQUATED OR UNSTERILE EQUIPMENT BEING USED
  • 00:13:42.150 --> 00:13:46.130
  • IN ABORTION PROCEDURES. BECAUSE, IN A SENSE, THERE CAN BE NO
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:52.220
  • SCRUTINY APPLIED, IN MANY STATES, TO ABORTION CLINICS.
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:56.060
  • THEN ON TOP OF THAT I THINK THAT IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO
  • 00:13:56.070 --> 00:13:59.240
  • DISTINGUISH BETWEEN HEALTH CARE FOR WOMEN AND THESE EXTREMELY
  • 00:13:59.250 --> 00:14:07.000
  • RISKY AND ELECTIVE PROCEDURES. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PRO-LIFE IN
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:13.140
  • ORDER TO RECOGNIZE THERE'S A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
  • 00:14:13.150 --> 00:14:16.140
  • PROVIDING MAMMOGRAMS FOR WOMEN AND TAKING THE LIFE OF A WOMAN'S
  • 00:14:16.150 --> 00:14:21.010
  • CHILD. -WE ARE VERY CAREFUL IN THE SENATE TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS
  • 00:14:21.020 --> 00:14:25.050
  • A BILL THAT REMOVES THE FUNDING FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND
  • 00:14:25.060 --> 00:14:28.230
  • GIVES THAT FUNDING TO WHAT ARE CALLED COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS.
  • 00:14:28.240 --> 00:14:31.160
  • THERE ARE AROUND 8.000 OF THOSE AROUND THE COUNTRY. THEY'RE IN
  • 00:14:31.170 --> 00:14:33.210
  • POOR NEIGHBORHOODS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THEY ACTUALLY PROVIDE
  • 00:14:33.220 --> 00:14:37.070
  • HEALTHCARE IN A MUCH GREATER QUANTITY TO MALE AND FEMALE
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:40.250
  • AROUND THE COUNTRY AT A VERY HIGH-QUALITY MEANS. WHERE
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:44.240
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD CLINICS TYPICALLY DO TESTING FOR MOST OF
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:47.140
  • THEIR CLINIC, WHAT THEY CALL SCREENINGS, AND THEN THEY
  • 00:14:47.150 --> 00:14:49.240
  • ACTUALLY SEND THEM TO ONE OF THESE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:52.030
  • TO ACTUALLY GET THE ACTUAL HEALTHCARE. THE PROPONENTS FOR
  • 00:14:52.040 --> 00:14:55.090
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAY IF YOU TAKE AWAY THE FUNDING FOR
  • 00:14:55.100 --> 00:14:58.280
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD THEY WON'T GET THESE SCREENINGS. WELL,
  • 00:14:58.290 --> 00:15:01.020
  • QUITE FRANKLY, THEY CAN GET THOSE SCREENINGS AT THE SAME
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:02.230
  • PLACE THEY'LL GET THEIR HEALTH CARE, THAT'S THESE COMMUNITY
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:04.240
  • HEALTH CENTERS, RATHER THAN GETTING IT AT LOCATIONS THAT WE
  • 00:15:04.250 --> 00:15:06.170
  • KNOW ARE GONNA DEFAULT BACK TO ABORTION EVERY TIME. IT IS A
  • 00:15:06.180 --> 00:15:09.210
  • MAJOR PART OF THEIR FUNDING. -THE ONLY SERVICE THAT PLANNED
  • 00:15:09.220 --> 00:15:12.150
  • PARENTHOOD PROVIDES THAT WOMEN CAN'T GET AT OTHER PLACES THAT'S
  • 00:15:12.160 --> 00:15:15.040
  • READILY ACCESSIBLE IS ABORTION. -AND ABORTION IS PRESENTED IS
  • 00:15:15.050 --> 00:15:22.200
  • THE EASY ALTERNATIVE, THE PAINLESS ALTERNATIVE TO
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:25.100
  • ELIMINATE THE PROBLEM. WHAT THE DATA IS SHOWING, WHAT THE
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:28.060
  • MEDICAL RESEARCH IS SHOWING, THAT IT DOESN'T END THE PROBLEM
  • 00:15:28.070 --> 00:15:30.070
  • AT ALL. WHILE IT DOES TERMINATE THE LIFE OF THE UNBORN CHILD,
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:33.000
  • THERE HAVE BEEN DRAMATIC IMPACTS FROM THAT ABORTION AND IT'S
  • 00:15:33.010 --> 00:15:36.010
  • HEART-WRENCHING. AND THESE ARE WOMEN THAT ARE NOW MY AGE, YOU
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:39.040
  • KNOW, ALMOST 60 YEARS OLD SHARING STORIES THAT HAPPENED TO
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:42.000
  • THEM 40 YEARS AGO AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD CLINICS WHERE THEY'RE
  • 00:15:42.010 --> 00:15:44.090
  • CRYING OVER THEIR ABORTION. THEY'VE HAD FAMILIES SINCE THEN,
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:47.040
  • BUT THE TRAUMA OF THE ABORTION DOESN'T END. -WHAT THEY DON'T
  • 00:15:47.050 --> 00:15:50.140
  • TELL YOU WHEN YOU'RE GETTING YOUR ABORTION IS WHAT'S GOING TO
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:53.010
  • HAPPEN THE DAY AFTER WHEN YOU WALK OUT THE DOORS. THEY DON'T,
  • 00:15:53.020 --> 00:15:57.110
  • THEY DON'T PREPARE YOU FOR THE PHYSICAL PAIN, THE EMOTIONAL
  • 00:15:57.120 --> 00:16:02.110
  • PAIN, THE SPIRITUAL PAIN, THE MENTAL ANGUISH. YOU KNOW, I
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:06.280
  • PRETENDED I WAS FINE BUT I WASN'T FINE. I'M A WOMAN WHO GOT
  • 00:16:06.290 --> 00:16:09.220
  • PREGNANT. WHEN A WOMAN GETS PREGNANT, THEIR MOTHERLY
  • 00:16:09.230 --> 00:16:12.240
  • INSTINCTS JUST KICK RIGHT INTO GEAR. IT'S HOW WE'RE WIRED, IT'S
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:16.170
  • HOW WE'RE CREATED, AND I SHORT-CIRCUITED MINE. AND THERE,
  • 00:16:16.180 --> 00:16:21.230
  • THERE WAS A HOLE, THERE WAS A, THERE WAS A DARKNESS, THERE WAS
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:26.020
  • A LOSS, AND I KNEW IT WAS A LOSS AND I FELT THAT. AND I CARRIED
  • 00:16:26.030 --> 00:16:30.070
  • THAT WITH ME FOR A VERY, VERY, VERY LONG TIME. I MEAN, I'LL BE
  • 00:16:30.080 --> 00:16:34.080
  • HONEST, I STILL CARRY IT WITH ME. I MEAN, I STILL HAVE TO SIT
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:37.130
  • HERE AND GO, I TOOK TWO LIVES. -I'M SORRY, I DON'T LEAVE ANY
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:42.070
  • WOMAN CAN HAVE AN ABORTION AND NOT HAVE SCARS FROM TAKING THE
  • 00:16:42.080 --> 00:16:45.190
  • LIFE OF HER CHILD. WOMEN ARE UNIQUELY MADE TO GIVE LIFE, AND
  • 00:16:45.200 --> 00:16:50.190
  • WHEN WE DESTROY THAT LIFE WITHIN US, WE DESTROY PART OF
  • 00:16:50.200 --> 00:16:53.130
  • OURSELVES. AND IT WAS JUST THAT SICK, TWISTED WAY YOU SEE THAT
  • 00:16:53.140 --> 00:16:57.050
  • WOMAN ON TELEVISION EVEN TODAY WHO'S ANGRY, WHO SAYS, ABORTION
  • 00:16:57.060 --> 00:16:59.280
  • IS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME, BUT SHE'S SAYING
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:01.260
  • IN THROUGH CLENCHED TEETH AND CLENCHED FISTS. SHE'S NOT SAYING
  • 00:17:01.270 --> 00:17:04.060
  • ABORTION WAS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME. SO, I THINK
  • 00:17:04.070 --> 00:17:08.120
  • IT'S THAT DEFENSE MECHANISM THAT KICKS IN THAT TRIES TO FIND A
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:11.010
  • WAY TO JUSTIFY THE MOST HORRIBLE THING ANYONE CAN POSSIBLY DO TO
  • 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:14.020

  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:18.060
  • LIE, BECAUSE WE KNOW. AND I THINK IF YOU ASK ANY WOMAN
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:22.230
  • THAT'S EVER KILLED HER BABY, SHE'LL TELL YOU, I KNEW. -WE'VE
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:27.200
  • GOT TO BE PROBLEM SOLVERS. WE HAVE TO HAVE RESOURCES AVAILABLE
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:33.120
  • TO HELP THESE WOMEN. YOU KNOW, WE, GOSH, I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:38.000
  • HOW MANY PREGNANT WOMEN WE'VE HAD LIVE IN OUR HOME WITH US
  • 00:17:38.010 --> 00:17:41.160
  • BECAUSE THEIR PARENTS KICKED THEM OUT, BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:44.130
  • ALREADY HOMELESS, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THEIR BOYFRIEND LEFT THEM,
  • 00:17:44.140 --> 00:17:47.110
  • WHATEVER, YOU KNOW, AND THEY COULDN'T AFFORD THEIR RENT. I
  • 00:17:47.120 --> 00:17:50.130
  • MEAN, THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IN THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT. WE
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:53.070
  • HAVE TO NOT JUST SAY THAT WE ARE PRO-LIFE. WE HAVE TO ACTUALLY BE
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:56.120
  • PRO-LIFE. WE HAVE TO LIVE AS PRO-LIFE PEOPLE. WE HAVE TO MAKE
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:18:00.110
  • SACRIFICES FOR THESE WOMEN AND THEIR CHILDREN. WE HAVE TO GET

  • UNCOMFORTABLE TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO PROMOTE A CULTURE OF
  • 00:18:04.140 --> 00:18:09.200
  • LIFE. AND NO MATTER THE COST, NO MATTER THE INCONVENIENCE FOR US,
  • 00:18:09.210 --> 00:18:15.060
  • YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO SHOW THESE WOMEN THAT THERE IS A BETTER
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:20.060
  • WAY, THAT THERE IS A BETTER OPTION, AND THAT WE ARE WILLING
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:23.240

  • DEFENDING CLIENTS WHO EXPOSED PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S SALE OF

  • POINT FOR THEM; A POINT FOR THEM YOU CAN KIND OF MARK IN HISTORY
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:50.280
  • WHEN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SAID, HMM, WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON AT
  • 00:18:50.290 --> 00:18:53.200
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD? IS THIS THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD I WAS TOLD
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:57.020
  • ABOUT IN THE 1960S AND 70S? IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE IT. AND BY THE
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:19:00.070
  • WAY, THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF ADVANCES IN SCIENCE, SO WHY DO
  • 00:19:00.080 --> 00:19:02.090
  • WE NEED THIRD TRIMESTER ABORTIONS? AND WHY ARE STATES
  • 00:19:02.100 --> 00:19:05.130
  • NEEDING TO PASS THOSE LAWS? AND WHY WON'T THEY SET UP CLINICS
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:09.180
  • THAT ARE CLEAN AND DECENT AND HAVE DOCTORS WHO COULD GET

  • 00:19:19.280 --> 00:19:22.260
  • SIXTY MILLION DOLLARS OF THEIR FUNDING THROUGH TITLE 10. THEY
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:27.050

  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:30.160

  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS REACHED. IT IS CLEAR BEYOND QUESTION THAT
  • 00:19:49.040 --> 00:19:53.150
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD FACES A FRAUGHT LANDSCAPE, INCLUDING A
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:59.000
  • PRO-LIFE PRESIDENT WHO HAS CUT BACK ON THE FUNDING OF PLANNED
  • 00:19:59.010 --> 00:20:03.180
  • PARENTHOOD. IN ADDITION, DOZENS OF STATES HAVE ENACTED PRO-LIFE
  • 00:20:03.190 --> 00:20:08.140
  • LEGISLATION, WHICH HAVE REDUCED THE CAPACITY OF ABORTION CLINICS
  • 00:20:08.150 --> 00:20:12.240
  • TO PERFORM ABORTIONS. THE STATE OF MISSOURI HAS ONLY ONE
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:17.120
  • ABORTION CLINIC, I BELIEVE, LEFT. AND THAT PARTICULAR CLINIC
  • 00:20:17.130 --> 00:20:21.000
  • DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A LICENSE. SO, GIVEN THIS FRAMEWORK, PLANNED
  • 00:20:21.010 --> 00:20:27.020
  • PARENTHOOD IS LOOKING FOR A MORE AGGRESSIVE LEADER. AND IT'S
  • 00:20:27.030 --> 00:20:32.060
  • AMAZING THAT THEY, IN FACT, ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE NEW GIVEN
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:35.270
  • THAT PRESIDENT WEN, WHILE SHE WAS PRESIDENT, STUBBORNLY
  • 00:20:35.280 --> 00:20:41.270
  • SUPPORTED GOVERNOR NORTHAM, WHO SUPPORTED, ESSENTIALLY,
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:45.030
  • POST-BIRTH ABORTION. THAT'S NOT GOING FAR ENOUGH APPARENTLY. AND
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:51.140
  • SO, NOW THEY HAVE REPLACED PRESIDENT WEN WITH SOMEONE WHO
  • 00:20:51.150 --> 00:20:56.060
  • IS, BASICALLY, COMING FROM THE POLITICAL LOBBYING ARENA,
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:21:01.040
  • SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A PHYSICIAN, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, SOMEONE WHO,
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:06.110
  • BASICALLY, HAS LED A LOBBYING EFFORT. BUT, PERHAPS, SOMEONE
  • 00:21:06.120 --> 00:21:10.070
  • WHO IS MORE POLITICALLY ADEPT THAN THE OUTGOING PRESIDENT.
  • 00:21:10.080 --> 00:21:15.010
  • -YOU KNOW, I WANT TO GO TO THANN BENNETT ON THIS. THANN,
  • 00:21:15.020 --> 00:21:17.000
  • THEY'VE MOVED NOW TO AN OLD-SCHOOL POLITICAL LEADER TO
  • 00:21:17.010 --> 00:21:20.260
  • KIND OF TAKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD AS THEIR ACTING PRESIDENT. I'M
  • 00:21:20.270 --> 00:21:22.270
  • NOT SURE BETWEEN NOW AND THE ELECTION CYCLE THEY'LL HAVE A
  • 00:21:22.280 --> 00:21:25.070
  • NEW PRESIDENT. IT'S A MAJOR ORGANIZATION TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:28.090
  • UNLESS THEY'VE GOT SOMEONE IN MIND ALREADY, MAYBE THEY DO. BUT
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:31.270
  • IF NOT, WHAT THEY'VE DONE IS GONE TO ONE OF THE OLD SCHOOL
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:34.150
  • LEADERS, WHO IS A POLITICAL, REALLY, ACTIVIST, AND AGAIN, A
  • 00:21:34.160 --> 00:21:42.090
  • POLITICAL ORGANIZER, TO TAKE CHARGE OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:48.150
  • THAT BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY THAT THEY RUN. THANN BENNETT:
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:51.020
  • JORDAN, I THINK IT'S ABOUT GONNA BE TIME, IF WE WEREN'T THERE
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:53.180
  • ALREADY, THAT THERE'S GONNA BE NO SAFE HAVEN FOR A PRO-LIFE
  • 00:21:53.190 --> 00:21:56.040
  • DEMOCRAT IN WASHINGTON D.C. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT. IT WAS NOT
  • 00:21:56.050 --> 00:21:58.270
  • THAT MANY YEARS AGO THAT THESE STATEMENTS THAT WE'RE HEARING
  • 00:21:58.280 --> 00:22:01.240
  • FROM DR. WEN WERE WHAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD BELIEVED. THE PROPER
  • 00:22:01.250 --> 00:22:05.280
  • PUBLIC MESSAGE, EVEN IF THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE IT BEHIND THE
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:08.230
  • SCENES, THEY BELIEVED THAT THE PROPER PUBLIC MESSAGE FOR
  • 00:22:08.240 --> 00:22:12.080
  • POLITICAL PURPOSES WAS THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD SHOULD BE
  • 00:22:12.090 --> 00:22:15.070
  • BRANDED A HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION. JORDAN, I THINK
  • 00:22:15.080 --> 00:22:18.010
  • THIS IS AN ADMISSION THAT THEY HAVE LOST THAT DEBATE, THAT THE
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:21.050
  • VIDEOS THAT HAVE COME OUT, THAT THE IMAGERY THAT WE NOW SEE
  • 00:22:21.060 --> 00:22:23.220
  • DURING THE COURSE OF A PREGNANCY, THAT THE SCIENTIFIC
  • 00:22:23.230 --> 00:22:26.290
  • FACTS THAT HAVE COME OUT AND THAT MORE AMERICANS ARE AWARE
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:29.250
  • OF, JORDAN, I BELIEVE THAT THEY KNOW THEY HAVE LOST THAT PUBLIC
  • 00:22:29.260 --> 00:22:32.180
  • MESSAGING. SO THEY'RE TRYING TO REBRAND THEMSELVES AS THE ENTITY
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:36.000
  • THAT WILL STAND UP FOR THE MORAL UPRIGHTNESS OF ABORTION, IF YOU
  • 00:22:36.010 --> 00:22:41.000
  • WILL, AND THE FACT THAT IT SHOULD BE A POLITICAL ISSUE. SO,
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:44.230
  • JORDAN, YOU KNOW, DOCTOR WEN'S COMMENTS WERE WHAT THEY WOULD
  • 00:22:44.240 --> 00:22:49.090
  • HAVE STOOD BEHIND JUST A MATTER OF YEARS AGO PUBLICLY. THEY KNOW
  • 00:22:49.100 --> 00:22:51.220
  • THAT ARGUMENT IS LOST NOW. THIS IS A RETRENCHING. IT'S A
  • 00:22:51.230 --> 00:22:54.170
  • REBRANDING. AND LOOK, WHETHER OR NOT IT'S GOING TO TAKE WEEKS, OR
  • 00:22:54.180 --> 00:22:58.050
  • MONTHS, OR YEARS, I'M NOT SURE, BUT THE NEW PLANNED PARENTHOOD,
  • 00:22:58.060 --> 00:23:01.060
  • JORDAN, EVEN THOUGH THE LAST ONE WAS POLITICAL, LOOK OUT, THIS
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:04.150
  • ONE NO LONGER PUTS A VENEER ON IT. THERE IS NO LONGER A
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:07.050
  • HEALTHCARE VENEER OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD. THEY ARE AN ABORTION
  • 00:23:07.060 --> 00:23:10.030
  • BUSINESS AND THEY ARE A POLITICAL BUSINESS. AND THIS IS
  • 00:23:10.040 --> 00:23:12.130
  • AN ADMISSION OF THAT. -FOLKS, THE ACLJ WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT
  • 00:23:12.140 --> 00:23:16.250
  • FOR LIFE. I BELIEVE WE'VE TURNED A NEW LEAF IN THIS BATTLE AND
  • 00:23:16.260 --> 00:23:19.070
  • WE'LL CONTINUE TO THE FIGHT FOR LIFE AND THE BATTLE FOR THE
  • 00:23:19.080 --> 00:23:22.240
