The ‘Women’s Healthcare’ Mask Falls at Planned Parenthood Hearing
By A.P. Dillon
Yesterday at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, the Planned Parenthood mask of ‘women’s healthcare’ fell.

Three glossy, 3 page front and back color fliers were sent to their son. Three from Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund and three the non-profits behind Aim Higher NC, North Carolina Citizens for Protecting Our Schools. Anyone who knows printing costs knows these fliers were not cheap.

This is a reposting of my DaTechGuy Article: Hagan Mother Of Three, Backed By Natl. Abortion Provider
By A.P. Dillon
Kay Hagan’s obsessive fear of the Koch’s and Democrat Dark Money isn’t her only slice of hypocrisy. As a mother of three, she’s now backed by Planned Parenthood — the national provider of abortions which received taxpayer funds. Planned Parenthood has launched a campaign tailored for her.
Planned Parenthood launches “Women are Watching” campaign for Kay Hagan. Shouldn’t that read “Women Allowed To Live Are Watching”? #ncsen

Yesterday was the 4th installment of “Moral Mondays” organized by the NAACP in front of the NC General Assembly. I’ve retitled them Meltdown Mondays, which is exactly what they are. No costumes this time, but I have high hopes for the next one. Highlights included Melissa Harris Perry showing up in order to apply her own brand of creepy shame, a couple of social justice speeches, chanting, singing and of course, more arrests. Without arrests and a big hoopla surrounding it, the media and people get bored and tune out. This is how Occupy did it, but they eventually wore out their welcome and people’s patience. ABC11 hits the nail on the head in the middle of their report:
Protesters have been seeking to call attention to the rightward shift of the state legislature, which was dominated for decades by moderate Democrats.
Yep. Elections have consequences.
“Mega Moral Monday”
The turnout was larger than last time, even with a week off, police said 1,000 and protesters said 1,600. Usually a break like that kills momentum and crowds are smaller, so what gives? What gives is the various Lefty organizations coordinating behind the scenes to pump up the numbers. Via watching the streaming online video, watching Twitter and noting the signage, the following groups were there:
NC Student Power Union
NC Justice Center
That probably isn’t all of them either. I added SEIU to the list since they clearly where there (ABC11), emphasis added: Continue reading
Yesterday I highlighted the ongoing Democrat and Liberal Meltdown here in North Carolina brought on by changes to legislation being made by the Republican majority General Assembly.
The list included a variety of increasing instances of ‘new tone’ and just downright crudeness. I also mentioned that Planned Parenthood in NC was pushing for protests and action against HB 730 and greatly misrepresented what the bill really said. Sister Toldjah elaborates on the misrepresentation and feminist freak out that went on:
It’s sorta like the Sandra Fluke manufactured “controversy” over “access” to birth control mixing with the religious exemptions issue – except on a local scale, with narcissistic North Carolina “feminists” in the starring role(s). Via the Raleigh News and Observer:
RALEIGH — A bill allowing private employers to refuse to cover contraception in their health insurance plans cleared a House committee Wednesday morning and is headed for a vote of the full chamber.
The legislation would also prohibit coverage for abortions in the new state health insurance exchange that is part of the federal Affordable Care Act, and through the plans cities and counties offer their workers. It also says any health-care provider can refuse to participate in abortions; current law protects doctors and nurses.
The bill is off to a rocky start, as Republicans in a House judiciary committee were not unified in supporting it. Rep. Bob Steinburg, a freshman Republican from Edenton who described himself as a hardcore abortion opponent, said he would only support the bill if the prohibition on contraception coverage was removed.
“It’s almost like we’re stepping back in time,” Steinburg said. “To suggest in the 21st century that women would be prevented from having access to birth control – even as far to the right as I am – is going off the cliff. This is going too far.”
Wellllll, I hope Steinburg’s constituents give him a piece of their mind on his feminist-themed criticism, which greatly misrepresented what the bill actually called for – giving employers the right to EXCLUDE from their health care insurance plans coverage for BC purchases (and abortions). It did not “restrict access.” It just changed who pays for it – not the insurer, but YOU. A self-described staunch pro-lifer shouldn’t be using left wing talking points to advance his argument one way or the other. Perhaps Rep. Steinburg is confused. I dunno.
Indeed. Read the whole thing. The summary and conclusions are pretty spot on.Don’t miss the portion on Rev. Emma Akpan and the commentary Sister Toldjah provides. Nailed it!
Those protesting certainly tried to turn a mole hill into a mountain. WRAL this morning echoed a bit of the foot-stamping:
CONTRACEPTION AND ABORTION: Wednesday morning, the House Judiciary A Committee passed a measure that would have allowed virtually any employer to limit contraception coverage in their employee health plans. Currently, only employers with certain religious affiliations can make such exceptions.
Around 10 p.m. Wednesday, lawmakers stripped the contraception provision out of the bill when it was heard on the House floor. The measure still makes several changes to abortion-related laws. Among the changes, cities and counties would not be able to offer health plans to their employees with abortion coverage. And health plans created by the health exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act would similarly be unable to offer coverage for elective abortion procedures under the House bill. The measure must be debated and voted a final time today before it heads to the state Senate.
I think the changes here probably had less to do with protests and more to do with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina possibly interceding on grounds such changes would be burdensome to their business and entanglements with Obamacare.
Sister Toldjah also spotted some photos of the protesters that I spied myself on Huffington Post early this morning. Funnily enough, local media didn’t run with the picture – which was taken by Planned Parenthood, naturally. I can’t blame them, it’s fairly embarrassing and runs with the childish theme of recent protests: Continue reading
