Women constitute more than half of the population. In 2008, 60% of voters were women. It is estimated that 10 million more women than men will vote in this election. Despite this, women make up only 16% of Congress. Women earn only 70 cents to each dollar men make. Women of color and undocumented women make less than white citizens. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are determined to overturn Roe V. Wade. Romney has not supported equal pay for women (The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act). Romney has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood. Romney has vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Romney doesn’t want health care to cover birth control. Romney says same sex marriage should be banned with a Constitutional Amendment.

Women, let’s rise up. Our vote alone can win this election. A vote for Obama is a vote for your health and your right to choose. It is a vote for equal pay and equal rights. A vote for Obama is a vote for our families. It is a vote to marry who you choose. It’s a vote to start a family when you choose. A vote for Obama says that we won’t stand for violence against women and that rape is rape. Our vote ensures that our daughters will grow up with the same rights that we’ve had. A vote for Obama sends a message: This war on women must end. We will not go backwards.

This election is shockingly close. Our safety is at stake. Our silence is consent and our vote is our voice. Let’s get active. Let’s get out every vote we can. Let’s make this election a mandate. A mandate to finally ensure women the respect, dignity and equality we all deserve! This is now. This is our call to action. Once and for all, let’s take back the power that is so inherently and naturally ours!

SO MAKE SURE YOU GET OUT THERE AND VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA NOVEMBER 6TH!

Don’t let Mitt Romney defund Planned Parenthood, and shut down the nation’s family planning program.

  1. Let me preface this by saying I don’t care for either of the candidates running for President. However, anyone willfully casting a vote for a man who has pushed this nation to the very brink is nothing short of insane. $16 trillion in debt, which if Obama gets 4 more years will be over $20 trillion. We will be in complete ruins economically and birth control will be the last of your worries… having a job, hyper-inflation and where your next meal will be coming from will be your top concerns.

    BTW, for those strong supporters of “Planned Parenthood”, how many know that the woman who founded it, Margaret Sanger, was a eugenicist who wanted to use birth control to exterminate all but the elite upper-class White people (that means no Blacks, no Hispanics, no Asians and no lower-class White folks, meaning Italians, Irish, Polish, etc, let alone Jews). Not long after, her plans for a Socialist utopia were carried out by a big admirer of hers… Adolf Hitler. Look it up.

    *****
    Alexi, I love you truly, but you got your head on backwards when it comes to politics.


  2. To The Explorer:
    Who honestly gives a fuck what the motives of Sanger were, when Planned Parenthood provides countless services to women today who otherwise would have no way of accessing said services? Do you honestly base your perception of things on what they were when they first started, regardless of how they have evolved? If you want to play that game, then you may want to reevaluate those who founded ‘nation that has been pushed to the brink of insanity’.
    Also, you just seem like a bad person. sry.


  3. I find it astonishing that anyone could look at the sinister motives of an organization and dismiss them out of hand. Why do you think most PP “clinics” are placed in the neighborhoods of those people they wished to exterminate? Some individuals view it as a “choice”, but how can you look at the tens of millions of abortions since Roe and reduce that to a simplistic one word? So I am a “bad person” for wanting to expose genocide (1/3rd of the Black population are the victims) and stop the murder of unborn? Seriously? What would that make folks promoting it?

    If keeping a baby-killing business in business is your top priority in life above stopping the bankrupting America and the turning of us into a third-world hellhole for which almost no one living here today can imagine, it speaks more to your character. You really need to take a good, long look at your upside down views of the world and right and wrong.


  4. Do you really want a Mit-wit in the White House?


  5. to The Exposer:

    Many great things come out of bad things. It is a sad truth. Planned parenthood may have been created with bad intentions (I am not sure that is accurate but I will look further into it for my own information), but the end result is not a bad thing. The microwave was created to be the next horrific weapon, now we all have them in our houses to cook food. Planned parenthood now acts as a refuge for women who would otherwise feel trapped and limited. More importantly it acts as a way for women to be proactive and make decisions about what they want to do with their own bodies in a safe and clean way.

    The “baby-killing business” will always been a business. It has always been a business. In times past it was herbal mixes to “bring on bleeding.” Then we moved on to hangers in back alleys. Making abortion illegal and getting rid of PP will not get rid of abortions, it will just force people to get ride of the fetus in a more dangerous fashion. Instead of under the eye of trained medical professionals, it will be friends or strangers in hidden places with less than clean supplies. Don’t think for a second that making something illegal stops it happening, it just stops it being regulated for safety.

    And there is nothing that will help us reach “Third-world hellhole” status faster than people having unwanted babies they can’t afford to raise.

    Also, Hitler was a fascist, which is on the other end of the political spectrum from socialist. http://esl.fis.edu/learners/support/hum/text/spectrum.htm


  6. To Al:
    Not really, I already said I wasn’t a fan of Romney. But we already know what we’ve gotten with Obama, and one would have to be insane to vote for 4 more years. Wrecked economy, $5 a gallon gas, high unemployment, corruption, crony capitalism (Solyndra), foreign policy fiasco (Arab Spring), Fast & Furious, murdered Ambassador in Libya, $16 trillion in debt… Obama ? He built that.


  7. To Shushi:

    “Many great things come out of bad things. It is a sad truth. Planned parenthood may have been created with bad intentions (I am not sure that is accurate but I will look further into it for my own information), but the end result is not a bad thing.”

    You means tens of millions of abortions in 40 years is not a bad thing? What? Planned Parenthood IS accomplishing the mission of its founder. You know why Hispanics have moved ahead of Blacks in the U.S. in population? Because abortion has murdered between 1/4th and 1/3rd of the Black population in just 4 decades. There’s a word for that, it’s called genocide.

    “The “baby-killing business” will always been a business. It has always been a business.”

    That doesn’t mean taxpayers should fund that business. Should taxpayers have funded the institution of slavery?

    “Then we moved on to hangers in back alleys.”

    BTW, the back alley hanger stuff was nonsense. That was a lie from the get-go to scare people.

    “Making abortion illegal and getting rid of PP will not get rid of abortions, it will just force people to get ride of the fetus in a more dangerous fashion.”

    What it should be is what it was prior to the unconstitutional Roe, that it should be done ONLY under medically necessary reasons. Because you don’t like the gender of the fetus or you & Billy were screwing around doesn’t cut it. It ain’t a “choice”, kids, it’s a baby. And the hillarity of the argument of “safe” abortions is self-evident. How is it safe when you’re murdering your own baby?

    “And there is nothing that will help us reach “Third-world hellhole” status faster than people having unwanted babies they can’t afford to raise.”

    It’s amazing the mindset that babies are considered a burden rather than a blessing. If you want third-world hellhole status, just vote for Obama again. See my prior post for how we’re already just about there (and it ain’t due to babies, it’s due to unaccountable ultraleftist politicians and politics which ruins everything it touches).

    “Also, Hitler was a fascist, which is on the other end of the political spectrum from socialist.”

    You don’t understand politics very well. Hitler was a National Socialist AND a fascist. It is only left wing fantasy that tries to place fascism on the right. Hitler was a left-wing statist, believed in centralized government (and abortions, too) to build his utopia. There was nothing “right-wing” about him. He was just another prong on the left hand of horror (Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Totalitarianism). Right wing Conservatism is about freedom and personal responsibility, small government, ethics and morality. All the things liberal (Socialists) despise, especially Obama, whom was raised a Marxist, and loathes everything this country stands for.

    But, hey, if free abortions and genocide of the Black community is what lights your fire and nothing else matters, vote for Obama.


  8. To the “Exposer”

    Planned Parenthood was created when Sanger found just how terrible the living conditions of low-income immigrants living on the Lower East Side were. Men worked terrible, dangerous jobs for minimal pay, and more often than not spent that money at local bars. When these men died unexpectedly, due to a multitude of reasons, but most often because of illnesses, women were often left to care for 5 or more children all on their own, at a time when many job positions weren’t available for women. Sanger knew that one way to keep these women was to give them birth control. Many children were also often left orphaned and homeless.

    Also, look up your goddamn facts. Planned Parenthood is in the healthcare business, not the “baby killing business”. Abortions, by the way, count for no more than 5% of their practices. They provide safe and reliable healthcare services to women AND MEN who need it, but can’t quite afford it.

    OBAMA 2012, AND THEN CLINTON 2016.


  9. Literally laughing out loud at “Mitt Romney and the Republicans are going to overturn Roe v. Wade.” If everyone in that video sincerely believes that then, well, yikes.


  10. To Valerie:

    “Planned Parenthood was created when Sanger found just how terrible the living conditions of low-income immigrants living on the Lower East Side were.

Sanger knew that one way to keep these women was to give them birth control. Many children were also often left orphaned and homeless.”

    If you think Sanger gave a damn about those folks, you’re a fool. She wanted to ERADICATE these mostly lower-class White Catholic immigrants from the American landscape. She also wanted to similarly eradicate NON-Whites. Say it with me now, ERADICATE. This was all part of the plan for a nice upper-class Socialist utopia free from those bitter clingers to Catholicism. True heroes were folks like Anthony Comstock, who exposed her agenda and went after her.

    “Also, look up your goddamn facts. Planned Parenthood is in the healthcare business, not the “baby killing business”.”

    I’ve been citing facts from the get-go. It just doesn’t fit your convenient leftist narrative of Planned Parenthood as an organization founded on genocide of those pesky poor and dark people polluting the landscape. It’s premier goal is infanticide. Always has been, always will.

    “Abortions, by the way, count for no more than 5% of their practices. They provide safe and reliable healthcare services to women AND MEN who need it, but can’t quite afford it.”

    Do you work for Planned Parenthood? You sound like it. “Safe and reliable.” Safe for the unborn, eh?

    “OBAMA 2012, AND THEN CLINTON 2016.”

    Bankrupt the country! Keep infanticide legal! Abortions are all that matter! Rah Rah !

    It’s not like they’re very bright. Just want to preserve the corporatist billion-dollar babykilling industry going. Keep the evil going!

    Patricia’s story: Planned Parenthood and the body parts
    California Catholic Daily ^ | October 18, 2012

    The following story was sent out by the Sacramento 40 Days for Life group on October 13 with this note: “Patricia worked at the Planned Parenthood here in Sacramento and is now helping the Rachel’s Vineyard post-abortion healing ministry.”

    My name is Patricia.

    I have the best childhood memories. The only thing missing in our family was God. We never went to Mass on Sundays, never read the bible, and I had no idea how to pray the rosary. Since we didn’t have a strong religious foundation in our family, my mother practiced new-age beliefs and my parent’s marriage (and our family) fell apart. My parents divorced and my younger brother and I decided to live with our father. The divorce deeply wounded us all.

    As a young girl, I was popular in school. I had good grades, won school recognition awards, and felt confident. I was definitely the apple of my father’s eyes. I noticed when I was 12 (when my parents began to have problems) that I started to pull out my hair when I was anxious or worried. it would actually make me feel better.

    My father and I developed a close relationship when he was going through his divorce. We would go to the movies, shop and dine out often. In a way, this filled in the void for my mom. My father meant everything to me.

    At 19 I had my first serious boyfriend. He was 5 years older than me and I cared for him very much. We became sexually active, which I was not prepared for. Looking back I think that the security, love and unity that was lost in my family, I tried to find in my relationship with my boyfriend. A couple of months into our sexually active relationship “bingo” I was pregnant. All my dreams and goals just went down the drain.

    The one thing that struck my heart the most was the thought of disappointing my father. How could I do this when he is still grieving over his divorce? How am I going to leave him alone and also abandon him? The gossip in our family will humiliate him after he speaks so fondly of me to everyone.

    That night I gave my boyfriend the news. He was so happy and joyful to be a father. That gave me a feeling of security and support so we decided to keep the baby. My friends at the time were not too pleased with my pregnancy. One of my best friends at the time did not have the courage to tell me in person how she felt about my pregnancy so she sent me a sentimental letter in the mail. The letter basically said that I was making a complete mistake, I was too young to be a mother and I had a long future to look forward too. Therefore, I should get an abortion before 4 months and a half – before I’m too far along.

    Soon all my friends ganged up on me and felt the same way. I knew they wanted the best for me but it was pure ignorance. I was so confused at this point. I decided to proceed with my abortion and I would lie to my mother and boyfriend and tell them I had a miscarriage.

    The day of my abortion my girlfriend accompanied me. I was very scared. When I was brought into the procedure room the doctor saw that I was nervous. She tried to calm me down by saying, “Patricia, I had two abortions myself and I performed two abortions on my daughter, she is ok, I am ok and you are going to be ok also. Look at me. Everything is fine. You are not doing anything wrong. This will only take 5 minutes.”

    I have to admit I did feel better especially when she told me that she went through the same thing. During the procedure, as the baby was getting sucked out of my womb, I felt disgusted with myself and felt like the biggest traitor to my child. Deep down I knew I was doing something horrible, but, at the same time I felt relieved. The “problem” was taken care of. That night I told my boyfriend the news. I lied and said I miscarried. He cried and was devastated, but I expressed no emotion. The guilt and shamed buried my feelings.

    As our relationship continued, my feelings towards him started to change. I was less attracted to him and I was unsure about him. At times I started to feel some depression and inner grief and I didn’t understand why. The clinic where I had my abortion encouraged me to resume my sexual relationship but this time practicing safe sex. They gave me birth control pills, but, I was taking them irresponsibly. 4 or 5 months after my abortion “round two” I was pregnant for the second time. How could I be such an idiot and put myself in this same situation? Immediately I knew I was not going to keep this child. I booked my appointment at Planned Parenthood because it would be embarrassing to go back to the clinic I just recently had my first abortion at. What would they think of me? This abortion was quick, emotion-less and no one knew about it. I still felt ashamed of myself.

    The relationship with my boyfriend (on my end) worsened. I had a hard time kissing him or being affectionate. I felt disgusted by him. As my depression and grief increased, I felt more distant from my boyfriend.

    6 months later, you guessed it, I was pregnant for the third time. I gave my boyfriend the news again and he was so excited. I gave him all my reason on why we should not have this baby and basically forced him to go with me to the abortion clinic. He did not want to but he was scared I would leave him.

    During the third abortion I was very emotional. My boyfriend was terrified for me and he would squeeze my hand tightly. I looked up and saw the tears flowing from his eyes. At that very moment I thought to myself, “What a wicked person I am, he is thinking this is my first abortion when I have already killed two of our children. I am trash. I am a killer, a murderer.” Our relationship after that grew further and further apart but it was mostly me. I couldn’t bare him touching me. I waited a few weeks and I broke off the relationship. He was devastated and completely heartbroken. I had no emotions. He would not leave me alone so I decided to move to Sacramento, California and start my life over.

    I needed a job in California. I saw an ad in the newspaper that Planned Parenthood was seeking a bilingual person for back office work. I thought to myself, “This is awesome – I want to work for Planned Parenthood since they were so nice and caring when I had my second abortion – plus, they provided me with free condoms and birth control pills.”

    I interviewed with the manager at Planned Parenthood. She said, “Ok – we do about 40 abortions a week, 20 on Wednesdays and 20 on Fridays.” I told her I had no problem with seeing blood and she told me that Hispanic woman and African-American woman were the 2 top ethnicities having the most abortions in their clinic.

    I was hired on the spot. My first day was on a Monday. Mondays were consultation days at Planned Parenthood. The manager instructed me, “You must do everything in your power to convince these girls to keep their appointments for their abortions. If you see that they are frightened and want to back out, console them by telling them you had one yourself. Oh, and never EVER call it a baby, a he, or a she. You call their baby an “it.”

    When she said these things to me I was shocked. It seemed hypocritical and deceiving. Something inside didn’t feel right. I didn’t think too much about it and began counseling woman and young girls (in English and in Spanish) and encouraging them to have their abortions – giving them my full support.

    Wednesday came – my first day assisting the doctor with the abortions. My manager that morning instructed me, “Patricia never ever tell a woman what you see happen in the back office after the abortions are performed. You must never tell the patient that we basically throw their baby away in the garbage.” I was appalled by this. Is she really saying this to me so bluntly? I didn’t know what to think.

    With the first patient, I held her hand while she underwent her abortion. Of course she was crying uncontrollably and she nearly fainted. After the procedure was over, my job was to take the bag attached to the machine that was used to perform the abortion, empty the bag out in a back room and dump all the contents out onto a huge glass petri- dish. 5 body parts were to be found in order to give the physician the “ok” that the abortion was successful and the patient was able to leave the procedure room.

    When the medical assistant who was training me emptied out the contents from the bag into the petri-dish I couldn’t handle the smell. She then grabbed a pair of tweezers and started searching inside the petri-dish. She then found an arm, grasped it with the tweezers and held it up to the light. She said, “This is one part -it’s the arm.” I could see the detail in the baby’s hand, the knuckles and the fingernails formed. She then found the second arm. I was horrified at what I was witnessing. I tried to act normal like it wasn’t affecting me. She then lifted one of the legs up to the light with the tweezers. I could see the small tiny hairs on the skin, the lines around the knees forming and the toenails. But when she held up the head of the baby, that’s when I knew I had murdered my three children. On the head I could see the nose, the nostrils, the eyelashes and even the eyebrows forming.

    I thought to myself “My God what have I done? I was also lied to and deceived.” 20 body parts would get thrown into this bag and at the end of the day the bag is tied into a knot and placed inside this big freezer. It turns into a block of ice. The place looked like a holocaust on abortion days. I was falling into more depression working there. I would cry at my lunch hour in my car almost every day. One day, I left and never went back.

    My self esteem was so low and I wasn’t that confident gal I once was. I started dating, what you might say was, a loser who was also a drug addict. I started doing Cocaine. I had experienced it before but didn’t do it habitually. I would tell my boyfriend that I felt a deep grief and depression and he recommended doing Cocaine when I felt those emotions because it helped to numb the pain.

    My boyfriend then showed me how to smoke Methamphetamine out of a pipe. The rest is history. I became extremely addicted quickly. I was living a whole different life with different people. I didn’t know who I was; I was so lost. Little by little I started losing my possessions. I lost everything 6 months later. I was severely addicted to smoking speed/crack for about 3 years.

    During those three years I would sleep in motels, cars, hung out on sidewalks for the night or slept in the homes of drug dealers or other crack addicts. I was around people who were deeply addicted to heroin, people who possessed guns and people who had warrants out for their arrest. I had so much anxiety especially when I was high. Of course the hair pulling trauma worsened. I pulled so much hair out daily, I soon had bald patches everywhere. I was frail, thin, and my bones where starting to pop out, especially my ribs. My eyes developed dark circles and were sunken in. I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize the person I was looking at. I would just see an empty person looking back at me. I was a dead woman walking. I completely lost my identity.

    Towards the end of my addiction, I would hear voices speak to me and I would speak back to them and argue with them. I was spun. One day while in a motel room with a bunch of drug addicts my boyfriend and I got into a huge argument. He snapped his fingers at me and told me to leave. I didn’t know where to go so I sat down onto the sidewalk in the motel parking lot. I then saw all my “friends” get into a car and leave me. I was all alone – with no food, no water, no friends, no family and no drugs. I sat there all day. I curled up into a semi fetal possession with my head buried into my knees and I sobbed and sobbed. I had nothing. I hit the lowest point I could possibly hit, rock bottom.

    At that moment, I felt God’s presence looking down at me. I lifted my head up while still in tears and started to speak to Him. I told Him, “You are all that I have left. I don’t know how I let my life end up this way. I want to thank you for the beautiful childhood and family you gave to me and I’m sorry I ruined my life. Thank You for everything.”

    As soon as I finished my short conversation with the Lord, a young blonde girl my age (22) with a name tag that said “Bonnie” knelt down beside me, embraced me with a hug, looked at me in the eyes and said, “Jesus loves you.” I looked back at her – confused. She smiled and said “I’m a waitress at the restaurant right over there. I was taking an order and the Lord spoke to me. He said, “Look out that window and tell that girl sitting on that curb that I love her and that I will never abandon nor forsake her until the end of times.” So I put my order down to come out and tell you this.”

    I couldn’t believe God responded so quickly. I was amazed. Bonnie took me into the restaurant and with the sweetest smile told me to order whatever meal that was on the menu. She was a daughter of a pastor and she told me she would drive me wherever home was. And she did.

    After being away from my father’s home for 3 years, there I was standing at his front door. I was so nervous and I shook as I knocked on the door. My father opens the door to see his little princess looking like a skeleton with hardly any hair and deep sadness in her eyes. I started bawling and threw myself to his feet and begged his forgiveness – very much the prodigal daughter.

    Years went by and I would hear people talking about Rachel’s Vineyard retreats (for healing after abortion) or I would see a pamphlet from time to time. I would avoid thinking about going because I made the decision that it was not for me. I thought to myself, “No way, I already went to confession. Jesus has healed me and there’s nothing more healing in this area He could possibly do for me.” I admit I was ashamed and I was frightened.

    When Valerie Fish, the coordinator of the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats in Northern California called to help me register for the retreat, the tone of her voice and the love she transmitted made me feel peaceful and at ease.

    When I arrived, the staff was so caring and loving. They made me feel extremely comfortable and welcome. That weekend was so powerful and transforming for me. God revealed many things to me and not only did he heal the wounds from my three abortions, he also healed the open wounds I still had regarding my parent’s divorce and my past drug addiction.

    The most powerful thing for me that weekend was that I went in the retreat feeling like a murderer a horrible sinner who aborted three children. When I left the retreat, I realized that I was a MOTHER of three beautiful children that Jesus and Mary were taking care of and that they’re waiting to meet me one day in heaven. My heart was so joyful.

    My first child, my daughter, is named Marianna in honor of the Virgin Mary. The second child, my son, is named Emmanuel in honor of Jesus. My third child, my daughter is named Rose in honor of the Rosary.

    That weekend I made a vow to my three children. Since I terminated their life and didn’t give them a chance to live, in their honor I would do everything I could to stand up and defend life.

    God has blessed me to be a part of the Rachel’s Vineyard staff and to share my testimony in front of hundreds of youth in the Bay area. God has also blessed me to be leader in our first Spanish Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats in Northern California beginning in October 2011.

    But, the biggest blessing is that God gave me spiritual parents in Valerie and Bob Fish. Valerie has guided me spiritually, and, through her, God has blessed me to be His servant. I thank God for the opportunity to share my testimony. But, my testimony is not about me – it’s about Him and for His glory. Amen.


  13. Wow, that last comment had EVERYTHING I was looking for. How god is the best thing ever AND how abortions are evil. I am a totally changed person!! Thanks the Exposer for posting that comment and changing my life.


  14. If you want a good chuckle, read about who The Exposer considers to be a “true hero”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Comstock
    IT’S A FUCKING RIOT.


  15. Given that Comstock was doing all he could to stop Communist anarchists like Emma Goldman and Socialist utopian genocidal racists like Margaret Sanger, he most certainly is a hero.

    BTW, what is it with you Obamabots that are always so perpetually angry and using vile language on public message boards? You have your leftist utopia under the Messiah, why aren’t you happy?
