Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) is attempting to end the state’s funding for Planned Parenthood because of what she described as a “high rate of billing errors.”

Fallin asked Oklahoma’s health department on Thursday to terminate its contracts with the group after an official review of the state’s two affiliates found billing error rates of 20 and 14 percent.

“These results are alarming,” she wrote in a letter to the department. “The lack of attention to the requirements imposed on a responsible provider is a continuing problem for these Planned Parenthood affiliates.”

Today I voted “No” on the Continuing Resolution (CR).  Continuing Resolutions are a failure to govern, a failure to represent the people, and a failure to exercise the power of the purse.

The House passed the bills to fund the government in the proper process.  The Senate failed to take up any of them due to Democrat filibusters.  Accordingly, a CR was presented as the only option for funding the federal government.

Representatives should be able to appropriate funds for programs the people approve and withdraw funds from those they oppose.  In Federalist 58, James Madison said, “The power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people…

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, performing 327,653 abortions in 2013 (last reported year). That is an average of 898 abortions every day, 37 abortions every hour, 3 abortions every 5 minutes and more than 1 abortion every two minutes.

During this same year, according to its own statistics, Planned Parenthood only provided 1,880 adoption referrals and 18,684 prenatal services. This means that in 2013, abortions made up 94.1% of these three pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5.4% (18,684) and .5% (1,800), respectively.

 A GAO report requested by pro-life Members of Congress reveals that over the course of three years (FY2010-2012), 6 abortion advocacy groups received $481 million in federal funding, as well as about $1.2 billion in combined federal and state funds under federal health programs that require shared funding. The majority of the federal funding for the 6 abortion groups was disbursed through HHS and USAID.

Tulsa Beacon: The Detestable Act of Abortion Shows Insight on our Nation

Randy-Bright-MugTulsa Beacon Article

The Detestable Act of Abortion Shows Insight on our Nation

Anyone who is a dog owner has had that moment when they catch their dog drinking from the toilet bowl.  Upon admonishment, the dog gives you a quizzical look that says, “Is something wrong”?

Perhaps it is an unfair comparison, and it is obviously not even in the league with things that go on in society, but it does convey the analogy that people often become so desensitized to detestable things that they not only don’t detect that their behavior is wrong, but fully believe that absolutely wrong is absolutely right.

We have seen this repeatedly during human history, case after case of man’s inhumanity to man, where one man no longer perceives another man as a human being, and thus feels no shame or remorse at the mistreatment of his counterpart.

Of course, the most prevalent example of this is one that took place during the lifetime of some of our oldest living citizens, Adolph Hitler and Germany. An acquaintance of mine who grew up in Germany during Hitler’s rise to power said that he was seen as someone who was going to save his or her nation.  At tht time Germany had suffered a humiliating defeat at the end of World War I, and was in a deep depression, both financially and mentally.

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Representative Jim Bridenstine (OK-1) has introduced the GRACE Act, (H.R.3245) a bill to prohibit federal government contracts from going to companies that donate to Planned Parenthood. He has also sponsored numerous other bills to cut direct government funding to the organization.

jimbridenstine 1000xCongressman Bridenstine (pictured) said, “The government should not do business with companies that facilitate Planned Parenthood operations. Every child has value. Every person has a purpose. Most Americans are horrified at the thought of expertly crushing the bodies of pre-born, living babies and ‘harvesting’ organs.”

Eighteen House conservatives told GOP leaders Thursday that they will not support any measure to fund the government if it continues to fund Planned Parenthood.

“We must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood,” they wrote in a letter obtained by The Hill. “Please know that we cannot and will not support any funding resolution — an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution, or otherwise — that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams.”

The letter was addressed to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who all have expressed concern about several leaked videos that show Planned Parenthood officials caught on hidden cameras discussing aborted fetal tissue.

“It is imperative that Congress do everything within its power to investigate these reports and take immediate action to stop them,” the Republicans wrote, adding that they want leadership to hold a conference meeting as soon as possible to discuss the GOP’s plan.

The letter was signed by …

Today, Congressman Jim Bridenstine introduced the GRACE Act, a bill to prohibit federal government contracts from going to companies that donate to Planned Parenthood.  He is already sponsoring numerous other bills to cut direct government funding to the organization.

 

Congressman Bridenstine said, “The government should not do business with companies that facilitate Planned Parenthood operations.  Every child has value.  Every person has a purpose.  Most Americans are horrified at the thought of expertly crushing the bodies of pre-born, living babies and ‘harvesting’ organs.”

 

Planned Parenthood has been exposed in recent days as not only a major provider of abortions but also as a marketer of baby parts harvested from their victims.  This horrific practice is funded by the American taxpayer at a rate of more than $1.4 million per day.  The $528 million Planned Parenthood received from government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements in fiscal year 2013-2014 accounted for 41 percent of their overall revenue.  An additional 30 percent of revenue, $392 million, was received from private contributions and bequests.

OKGOP Stands for Life — Moves to Defund Planned Parenthood and Stop the Killing Fields in Oklahoma

Over the last few weeks we have been exposed to the evil of Planned Parenthood. Through hidden cameras and special investigations, those willing to stand on the side of life have uncovered unspeakable acts.

  The Republican Party lists in their platform that all life should be protected, because life is created by a Sovereign God. The Democrats, on the other side, stooped so low as to take out even the mention of God at their National convention several years ago.

The slow fuse of destruction was lit against the family over forty years ago with the so called Roe v. Wade Supreme Court opinion. That opinion started a systematic elimination of newborn babies because they couldn’t “determine when life begins.”
