State of things for May 28. 2006

LEGISLATIVE ALERT - AB 2742 NEEDS YOUR URGENT ATTENTION. LETTERS, EMAILS AND PHONE CALLS TO YOUR STATE ASSEMBLY MEMBER BEGINNING TUESDAY, MAY 30.

AB 2742, sponsored by Planned Parenthood and authored by Assembly member Pedro Nava, (D-Sta. Barbara with a district office in Oxnard) which had been on a “watch” status came alive when amended in Committee to expand the state Family Planning program - Family PACT - to automatically include Planned Parenthood as a fee-for-service provider.

Family PACT (Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment)
www.dhs.ca.gov/pcfn/ofp/programs/FamPACT/default.htm.

The bill has sailed through three Democrat dominated Assembly committees and is now scheduled for an Assembly floor vote. According to the Republican legislative analysts office, 28 of the 32 Republican Assembly members can be counted on to oppose this bill, but that is not enough to defeat it. Democrats need to be convinced to vote “NO.”

This bill is interesting for the fact that this act by Planned Parenthood to force its way into the state family planning stables places it squarely in competition with the various county health department clinics. Planned Parenthood not only wants the whole pie they want to run the kitchen as well.

When speaking with Democrats or Republicans like Keith Richman or Lynn Daucher, use the information regarding fiscal effect and urge them to reject the added burden to the taxpayer of underwriting the costs of competition in the abortion industry.

FISCAL EFFECT (as listed in the bill).

1) Increased costs of approximately $2.6 million, consisting of $2 million for OFP to contract for the required evaluation ($630,000 GF), and a cost of $578,000 ($182,000 GF) to Medi-Cal and FPACT to develop common utilization controls, a provider manual, regulations and to administer the transportation and child care grant program.

2) Additional GF costs for the transportation and child care grants through the Office of Family Planning. Assuming 46 grants at $20,000 a grant, GF costs of $920,000. Actual amounts would be determined through the budget act. If federal funds are available to match GF, these costs cost would be reduced by half.

THE ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT

Thou shalt honor thy health care provider above all others.

The health care industry has gone to great lengths to instill in everyones mind that health care is a right and a necessity. We are led to believe that we adults have failed our youth if there is no womb to tomb health care cocoon surrounding them.

Our young adults are supposed to be so well educated, but they cant figure out how to provide their own health?

The front page of the Contra Costa Times (5/28/06) carried an article entitled “Recent Grads Seek Ways To Bridge Health Care Gap.” .It portrays all 18 year olds as facing a terrible plight as they enter the world of adults without a health care net under them. This is just the latest in an all out effort by the Health Care Industry and the Democrat Party to divide and conquer and utlimately end up with their desired universal health care insurance coverage as proposed by Senator Sheila Kuehl. You recall the old saying: “how do you swallow an elephant? The answer being :”One bite at a time?” Well, this is getting the tax payers to swallow universal health care one sub group at a time.

Teens, young adults, unemployed adults, seniors, immigrants,illegal aliens, etc. are all sub groups targeted by elitists and social service groups to receive some form of state services. Of course it is mostly the service providing groups who benefit from this as they expand their offices and oversight into peoples lives with an increasing amount of our tax dollars.

Sadly it is not only the likes of Planned Parenthood shouldering their way into this funding stream. Faith based groups, such as Catholic Charities, which received about 80% of its funding from our tax dollars is begging for more money to be one of the providers of what is called “bridge” funding programs and services. The name of their program is CareCollaborative.

For a better understanding of how enmeshed Catholic Charities has become in the welfare state see: City Journal:”How Catholic Charities Lost Its Soul.”
You dont have to be a believer to understand that religious values can uplift the poor. Too bad Catholic Charities USA has lost confidence in the power of those values and has embraced the welfare-state faith. By Brian C. Anderson Winter 2000

ANOTHER BUDGET BOONDOGGLE

The proposed state budget includes a plan to expand the state budget to include proposed spending of $22.8 million or more to “help” counties cover children.(Ed. note: Forhealth care purposes anyone up to age 21 is considered a child) and place them into the Healthy Families Program. In the past the legislature has tried passing legislation to expand this program to include the adult familiy members of the children that have been placed into the states loving medical hands. they have failed, but not given up.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kim Belsh is quoted as saying that Schwarzenegger’s plan would be “a transitional or bridge proposal,” pending the results of a tobacco tax measure that Advocacy groups are seeking to qualify for the November ballot. A percentage of the tax increase would be used to expand eligibility under Healthy Families. This could well mean that it doesnt expand the numbers of children receiving this care, only the age of the same group now under 18 receiving this service.

Please just remember that though all this health care sounds like the modern day Good Samaritan, every agency receiving this money will be required to provide or refer your son or daughter, church member or welfare dependent to family planning or abortion providers as the clients first option. This further cuts out any chance for groups like BirthRight or Pregnancy counseling centers to have any effect.

Understand that the county health clinics and Planned Parenthood are already a very cooperative and close working partnership along with the schools and so-called faith based entities. All the hype about falliing unwed pregnancy and abortion rates could very well mean increased birth control services to our youth and young adults. Dont let your church become a part of this chemical serilization/ population control mentality.

A CORRECTION.
Recently I sent out a report entitled “Your tax dollars at work discouraging pregnancy.” In that I reported on a presentation given to Contra Costa County non-profit agencies hosted by the county Department of Child Support Services. The program consisted of the presentation of a video entitled “It Takes Two: The legal and financial responsibilities of parenthood.”

That video claimed to portray an actual situation involving a 16 year old girl and her 18 year old Junior Prom date. I misquoted the name of the health clinic that the girl visits to get a pregnancy test. The actual name of the clinic is the Hazel Hawkins health center located in Hollister, California, not the Hazel Rawlins center. An irony does still attach to the use of this clinic however. According to the Hazel Hawkins clinic web site, Hazel was a 7 year girl with an appendicitis attack who, in 1907 died due to lack of nearby health care. Her father, so distressed at the loss of his child, created a hospital in Hollister which has now expanded to include satellite health care centers. The irony is the fact that a hospital once dedicated to saving lives now is also used to exterminate lives, childrens lives.

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.
