The Earth Shattering Shift in Medical Ethics

The New Bioethics

Profound respect for the sanctity oflife has always been the core ethical principle of medicine, but that is changing. Today, sadly, the truth that every human life has equal worth is rejected by utilitarian-minded bioethicists. The new bioethics divides human beings into two categories: the “wanted” and the “unwanted.” Like their brothers and sisters who are aborted at the beginning of their lives, the chronically or terminally ill, disabled, and elderly are in danger of being killed simply because it is inconvenient and/or costly to care for them.

Palliative medications designed to relieve suffering are being misapplied in the hospice care setting as a tool in this new bioethics to make “unwanted” people die.

When hospice care is provided by healthcare professionals who truly respect life, it is a blessing. However, in practice, hospice is often not as advertised.

Stealth Euthanasia

Hospice care, whether provided in a patient’s home or a facility, is the “ideal” setting for the misuse of palliative medicines to secretly eliminate the “unwanted.”

“Stealth euthanasia” means the intentional hastening of a patient’s death while pretending to provide appropriate treatment. A typical report that we receive from grieving family members is that their loved one, who had been alert and was not complaining of pain, was administered increasingly frequent and larger doses of pain medications and sedatives to the point where they were sleeping all the time and could not eat or drink. Some reported that patients were also denied their usual medications to control blood pressure, diabetes, etc.

In September of 2000, the World Federation of Right to Die Societies (an association of organizations which promote euthanasia) issued an ominous declaration, stating in part:

We wish to draw public attention to the practice of “terminal sedation” or “slow euthanasia” which is performed extensively today… A physician may lawfully administer increasing dosages of regular analgesic and sedating drugs that can hasten someone’s death as long as the declared intention is to ease pain and suffering… Compassionate physicians, without publicly declaring the true intention of their actions, often speed up the dying process in this way.

Stay alert!

Doctors (and nurses) who intentionally kill selected patients represent an earth-shattering shift in medical ethics. Thankfully, there are still many members of the medical profession who embrace the sanctity of life ethic. The difficulty lies in discerning who can be trusted never to kill. When a loved one is referred to hospice or palliative care, be wary and stay alert!

Back Income of each of Planned Parenthood’s 50 Affiliates

As of January 2020, Planned Parenthood has 50 affiliates across the United States. Each affiliate is a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Each affiliate reports its income to the federal government on a Federal Form 990. Listed below is the annual income of each affiliate based on that data. (NOTE: Five affiliates in New York State merged into a single organization in January. The dollar figure given for Planned Parenthood of Greater New York is an estimate based on the separate incomes of the five affiliates).

Affiliate Name Annual income
(millions)
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte $103.9
Planned Parenthood Greater New York $98.0
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles $78.6
Planned Parenthood Pacific South West $73.9
Planned Parenthood Orange and San Bernardino Counties $69.8
Planned Parenthood North Central States (Heartland + MN,ND,SD) $68.0
Planned Parenthood Great Northwest & Hawaiian Islands $62.1
Planned Parenthood Northern California $58.7
Planned Parenthood Illinois $55.4
Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains $48.6
Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida & Treasure    Coast $45.0
Planned Parenthood Southern New England $44.8
Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri $38.2
Planned Parenthood South Atlantic $36.9
Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette $35.5
Planned Parenthood Greater Texas (including surgical) $35.1
Planned Parenthood Wisconsin $33.4
Planned Parenthood Northern, Central, Southern New Jersey $31.6
Planned Parenthood League Massachusetts $31.6
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast $28.3
Planned Parenthood Northern New England $25.2
Planned Parenthood Greater Ohio $24.6
Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic $24.1
Planned Parenthood Michigan $23.6
Planned Parenthood Southwest Central Florida $23.0
Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley $20.9
Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania $20.1
Planned Parenthood Maryland $19.5
Planned Parenthood Greater Washington & North Idaho $19.3
Planned Parenthood California Central Coast $19.1
Planned Parenthood Central Western New York $18.9
Planned Parenthood Great Plains $17.5
Planned Parenthood Indiana & Kentucky $17.0
Planned Parenthood Arizona $15.4
Planned Parenthood Metropolitan Washington, DC $15.1
Planned Parenthood Southwestern Oregon $15.1
Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi $13.8
Planned Parenthood Association of Utah $13.6
Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region $10.4
Virginia League Planned Parenthood $10.2
Planned Parenthood Keystone $9.9
Mount Baker Planned Parenthood $9.5
Planned Parenthood Metropolitan New Jersey $9.2
Planned Parenthood Western Pennsylvania $8.5
Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood $8.4
Planned Parenthood Montana $8.3
Planned Parenthood Southeast $8.3
Planned Parenthood South Texas $6.6
Planned Parenthood North Country New York $5.9
Planned Parenthood Delaware $5.1

These 50 affiliates generate a combined income of over $1.5 billion. Planned Parenthood has been aggressively encouraging affiliates to merge for the last several decades. We believe that Planned Parenthood still wants to reduce the number of affiliates down to, at most, 40. As Planned Parenthood closes clinics and combines affiliates, there will be more and more members of Congress who have no Planned Parenthood operations in their district and/or state. As that happens, PP’s loss of Congressional support will help us close down the organization for good.

Assembly Select Committee On Women’s Reproductive Health

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

This Select Committee on Women’s Health Issues: How to overcome religious barriers to accessing basic human rights and services. the special interest committee is Chaired by Assembly woman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, (D-Dist 16-Orinda) and was attended by 4 of the 7 committee members: assembly woman and 2019 Women’s Caucus Chair Monique Limon, (D-37 and Assembly member. Asm David Chiu, (D-17-S.F.)and Asm Sidney Kamlager, (D-Dist 54 .San Diego).

The sole purpose of this meeting was to present findings on the apparently planned manner to embroil the Catholic Church and Catholic hospitals in expensive and prejudicial charges of failure to provide adequate services to patients due to church restrictions on certain procedures now deemed to be right and just. This committee plans to cause serious legal problems and funding losses for, especially Dignity Health, formerly referred to as Catholic Healthcare West.

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.

Click here to read the very well written report by Ms. Short.

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. Please take a moment and provide us with your name, City and zip code and your email address.

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.

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.
