Hypocrisy on Broadway

With a cast dominated by actors of color, Hamilton is fighting to highlight the roles of immigrants and minorities in early American politics and in today’s society. Its catchy songs appeal to theater geeks while its historical plot draws in political junkies for an entertaining dance through history. Alas, for a show that rallies for diversity and equality, it’s rather hypocritical that Hamilton’s golden boy, Lin-Manuel Miranda, is advocating for Planned Parenthood, a corrupt organization born out of a racist, eugenics-driven past.

In today’s update of Planned Parenthood’s desperate attempts to scrape even morehamilton money from Americans’ pockets, we have the talented Lin-Manuel Miranda, the writer of the Broadway musical hit Hamilton, offering a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience for a $10 donation to America’s abortion Goliath.

In September 2016, Miranda proudly boasted on Twitter about his mom’s affiliation with Planned Parenthood. Lin-Manual Miranda’s mother, Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda, is on the national board of directors for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. He then encouraged supporters to donate to Planned Parenthood on Giving Tuesday.

And recently, the Broadway star is taking a new angle—bribing Hamilton fans with hotel and air fare, three Hamilton shows, and show paraphernalia. Yup, you too can sell your Hamilton-loving soul with a $10 to $5,000 donation to Planned Parenthood! (Yuck)

Oh this is awkward…

So you know that Planned Parenthood targets minorities, right? No? (Awkwaaaard.) Dear Mr. Miranda, here’s a little wake up call on Planned Parenthood. (I mean, you are fundraising for them, after all.)

But you know what, Lin-Manuel. Maybe racism, deceit, abuse, and death doesn’t turn your stomach? Well, then just take a quick peak at how well Planned Parenthood is going to manage your loyal fans’ money. (Hint: $129.7 million of waste, abuse, and potential fraud. HOORAY!)

We will tell their story

Mr. Miranda, you may refuse to defend those who are the most vulnerable in today’s society. You may refuse tell their story. You may even continue to openly advocate for Planned Parenthood and legalized murder in America. But know this…

This January, over 600,000 people will gather in Washington, D.C. We will gather like we have for 40+ years. The media will barely cover our protest. Broadway won’t sing songs. We will tell the story of 60 million preborn children and their mothers.

And guess what? “When our children tell our story,” they’ll tell of the story of how we abolished abortion in America.

 

Free hotel stay during the March for Life

After hearing about just how life-changing our Students for Life National Conference has been for so many young leaders, one of our long-time supporters just called and offered a generous grant to help us bring more people to our National Conferences than ever before.

Because we all know that staying in DC an extra night for the Students for Life National Conference is one of the biggest expenses you will have.

Here’s what our donor has offered to do:

Any student group (college, high school, youth group) that is coming to the March for Life in Washington and hasn’t registered yet for the Students for Life of America East Coast National Conference can get free hotel housing in Maryland near the conference venue if they register within the next two weeks.

Here’s the catch: We only have enough funds to pay for hotels for one night (so it’s first come, first served) and there will be four people to a room. Further, this awesome new opportunity only applies to student groups (10 people or more) who have never been to the Students for Life National Conference or who haven’t been to our Conference since 2013.

Want to make sure your group can come to our East Coast National Conference on Saturday, January 28th (the day after the March for Life)?

Simply fill out this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdlQ-aIPL-Yt6bOo2-B5S2B9gxMnqqzZaLVaw95tdbdcam6bw/viewform.

Planned Parenthood is Freaking Out About Tom Price

This week, President-elect Donald Trump announced his pick – Tom Price -for the head of the Health & Human Services Dept. This was a big deal and something that pro-lifers have been watching closely.

HHS has a lot of power in the healthcare world. They were also the ones that drafted the rules about forcing companies to pay for abortifacients. Tons of Obamacare rules go through HHS as well.

Rep. Tom Price is a great choice, as many pro-life groups have already pointed out. He is an orthopedic surgeon who obviously understands the healthcare system. He also despises Obamacare.  He is also 100% pro-life, which is forcing Planned Parenthood and their buddies to curl up in a safe space somewhere.

PP text message

Cecile Richards released a lengthy statement yesterday, which was nothing short of their usual talking points about how Republicans hate women so much that they want to take away their cancer screenings, birth control, and “access” to affordable healthcare, which means they want to make abortion illegal and *gasp* defund Planned Parenthood.

Say goodbye to that hefty salary Cecile.

It’s usually a very good sign for the pro-life movement and the abortion industry and their allies throw such a public hissy fit.

But the thing is, only Planned Parenthood is to blame for this mess. They are the ones that have been caught time and again participating in shady, and possibly criminal, business practices. They are the ones who can’t seem to reconcile their books as to not defraud taxpayers of millions of dollars, and they are the ones who have pushed their radical agenda on the American people, boosting their preferred presidential candidate with over $30 million, only to have lost.

Millennials in particular don’t care one bit for the kind of extreme stance that Planned Parenthood takes on abortion. A poll from the Institute for Pro-Life Advancement showed that only 17% of Millennials believe abortion should be legal for any reason at any point in the pregnancy. Heck, Planned Parenthood even takes that a step further by not supporting legislation that would protect the baby if he/she was born alive after an abortion – and then advocating for the right to abort that child outside of the womb:

No wonder Planned Parenthood is flailing around. They lost big time and need to come to terms with the fact that women aren’t buying what they’re selling. So go put that lipstick on and get back to us.

Media Coverage of Abortion Epitomizes Why We Have Fake News

By R.J. McVeigh, Director of Apologetics

The rise of fake news on social media over the past year has recently prompted the mainstream media to begin drawing more attention to these false stories in an attempt to stop the trend. It is now almost a daily occurrence to see a headline article on websites like CNN that are titled something like, “No, [so-and-so] did not really say [what-and-such]”. Even Oxford Dictionaries has declared “post-truth” the word of the year; a term meant to describe circumstances in which objective facts don’t matter.

Organizations like these making efforts to create awareness of people being deceived online is all within the context of the cultural and political craziness of 2016 (Brexit, Donald Trump, etc.). These established organizations see recent events as a rejection of themselves, and their explanation for how anyone could reject them is that people just don’t understand the truth. They believe they’ve identified fake news as the reason people don’t understand the truth, and so they’re now targeting fake news.

“News sources” that are fabrications are despicable, and rightly should be condemned. But pre-existing bias in the media and in politics should receive a signification portion of the blame for the recent rise in completely fabricated “news” stories. Media bias and political manipulation of the facts have opened the doors for full-fledged fake news. When people start to believe that the “credible” and “mainstream” media is fudging the facts or choosing to only highlight certain facts to alter perceptions it makes it very easy for others to simply take it one step further.

The abortion lobby and the way the media presents abortion are prime examples of how lack of mainstream credibility has created the phenomenon of fake news. There are countless examples regarding abortion from just the past few years that demonstrate how the population has lost faith in the supposedly “real” news.

The most glaring example is last year’s #PPSellsBabyParts scandal. Those videos were real. They were not doctored or edited in a manipulative way. Even the Planned Parenthood commissioned analysis concluded this. But you would have never realized that listening to the media. The media took all their talking points from Planned Parenthood and started singing the line about “highly edited” videos. This was a phrase intentionally thought up to be misleading. Anyone who critically thinks about it for half a second knows everything we see on TV is “highly edited” – being “edited” doesn’t mean it’s manipulative or misleading.

But someone at Planned Parenthood intentionally tried to think of a talking point that would make it SOUND like the videos were misleading. And the media went right along with it, no questions asked.

After all the Wikileaks regarding media bias, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was an explicit request from Planned Parenthood to the media. The completely biased coverage of such a big scandal is an example of the mainstream media acting more like the same “fake news” they’re now decrying.

And then there’s the example of Planned Parenthood’s 3-percent abortion statistic. The claim that only 3% of PP’s services are abortion is highly misleading. It is intentionally designed and turned into a top talking point in order to mislead. Yet, any time Planned Parenthood’s abortion business is brought up in the news or on TV you can bet someone from the “mainstream” will cite this statistic. Never mind that the statistic is self-reported by Planned Parenthood, the media is perfectly willing to accept it as gospel without question. That sounds a lot like fake news to me.

There is also the way public opinion of abortion is presented in the media. Being pro-life is made to seem like a fringe minority. Never mind that even the most abortion-favorable polls show that 55% of the population oppose legalization of abortion in all or most cases.  And when’s the last time the 600,00 people in the middle of a blizzard (EVERY YEAR) at the March for Life was given as much coverage as a few hundred protesters after the election? Not to mention that the mainstream media won’t even call Pro-Lifers “Pro-Life”; despite being very willing to call Pro-Choicers “Pro-Choice”. Again, this all seems like pretty “fake” coverage to me.

We could go on and on with examples of “real news” acting like “fake news” when it comes to abortion. Abortion is not the only example of extreme media bias, but it’s a big one. These examples and the mainstream reaction to fake news makes the mainstream seem insecure. You can smell the hypocrisy.

If there are any mainstream news executives trying to figure out how to regain credibility, I suggest they start with their abortion coverage. Stop taking your talking points from Planned Parenthood and NARAL. Acknowledge that hundreds of millions of respectable Americans oppose legal abortion. Treat it like a real issue. And then maybe you can improve your problem of readers favoring fake news over you.

 

Our time is now.

By Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America

Our time is now.

America has a pro-life majority government. Everything we have been fighting so hard to accomplish these past several years, despite an entrenched abortion lobby and corrupt politicians in Washington — all of this is now possible.

It’s now very easy to imagine a day when Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton will be overturned and when Planned Parenthood, our nation’s abortion Goliath, will be defunded of half a billion dollars in taxpayer money.

This is possible, now. trump1

If

If we, the pro-life generation, hold President-Elect Trump to his promises.

If we hold the Congress and it’s leaders to their numerous pledges.

If we stand united, focused, and motivated.

There is no excuse.

As you know, our mission at Students for Life has never been dependent on what happens in Washington. This victory helps the pro-life movement immensely. This new pro-life majority has it within their reach to pass and enforce the pro-life laws we need until we reach the day our culture fundamentally rejects abortion. We will save more lives.

…but now the real work begins. We have to finish what we started.

We need to ensure that only pro-life Supreme Court justices are appointed, period. We need to fire Planned Parenthood and defund them of our taxpayer dollars, plain and simple.

We need to mobilize like never before and ensure our leaders in Washington will do what they have pledged.

And I’m going to ask you to do some hard things in the next few months and years.

I’m asking you today to trust our team at Students for Life and to believe in our mission to make abortion unthinkable and illegal in our lifetime. For this will be one of my greatest honors to lead you through this fight…the fight of our lives.

While our pro-life generation may be young, we’ve studied under our pro-life predecessors and heroes. We’re organized. We’re united. And we’re prepared. We can do this.

Please, stand with me. There’s so much we need to do.

This is our chance to appoint the justices we need to overturn Roe and Doe. This is our chance to defund and bankrupt the abortion Goliath, Planned Parenthood. This is our chance, the chance of a lifetime, to abolish abortion.

This is our time.

The Abortion Industry is Scared They are Losing Millennials

Planned Parenthood and their friends in high places held a tele-townhall/virtual pep rally last night with their supporters to pump them up about voting in favor of pro-abortion candidates. It was the trifecta of the abortion industry’s most ardent defenders: Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and former Texas state senator Wendy Davis.

This was a rough hour to get through but we wanted to know what the other side was up to and boy did we find out some goodies. Between Senator Warren’s passionate defense of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards’ plea that every woman needs Planned Parenthood, and Wendy Davis’ portrayal of a world without abortion, there were audience questions, from swing states of course.

One mom called in (supposedly) from Ohio and said she is speaking to her daughter’s 4th grade class about the significance of this election and asked the trifecta for their advice on how to relay that information.

Cecile jumped in and said she was jealous that this mom was going to be speaking to these young girls. I bet! This is Planned Parenthood’s gold mine – future patients to give them lots of money for abortions.  Wendy Davis also attempted to answer this and said she was sure this mom would tell these nine-year-olds what a great role model Hillary Clinton is. Just for the record, Secretary Clinton supports abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, as well as taxpayer-funded abortion, which only a small minority of Americans agree with.

Another audience member claimed he was an abortionist out of a Planned Parenthood in San Diego and was absolutely distraught that Millennials, in his view, take for granted abortion. He implored grandmas to get out there and talk about how abortion wasn’t always legal.

He’s not the only one to notice this. Former Democratic National Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, took heat earlier this year when she essentially said young women are too complacent about abortion rights. And former NARAL head Nancy Keenan was shocked at all the young people at the March for Life a few years ago and deemed an “intensity gap” between young pro-lifers and young pro-choicers.

One of the Planned Parenthood staffers on the call was a Millennial and tried to assure him that Millennials do care and that they know what’s at risk.

Sorry Planned Parenthood but Millennials hold pro-life positions over pro-choice positions. Over 50% of Millennials believe abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances. Also, Planned Parenthood lags way behind when it comes to having student groups on college campuses. SFLA has over 1,030 college and high school groups and Planned Parenthood is excited about their 200.

This is the hope for the future and it’s what we see on college and high school campuses every day – pro-life students are compassionate, loving, kind and cannot wait to bring about the end of abortion.

 

 

 

 

Pink Fleet Emojis

pinkfleetbanner

There are not many people who see our van and think, “whatever.” 

We usually spark some kind of reaction. Good, bad, weird, you name it. We’ve had it all. 

We’ve seen just about every emoji personified. 

 

We get support:  
1“I agree. Keep it up”

 

 

We get double takes:
2“Wait what!?”


It’s pretty strange to see a large pink van decked out with not so fun facts about Planned Parenthood. Especially when all you know is how ‘great’ Planned Parenthood is. Planned Parenthood spends MILLIONS on branding instead of serving women. Of course that is what you know! Question it!

 

We get confusion:  
3“Is that Planned Parenthood?? … no!?!?”


Sometimes it takes people a while to realize what’s going on. Yes, the van is pink, but Planned Parenthood doesn’t own the color pink.
 

 

We get stares, lots of stares:

4

 

 

As we pull into a gas stations heads turn. Once a lady in the car next to us stared the whole time we were getting gas and snacks. Jaw partly dropped and wide eyes. 

Sometimes it’s easy to forget we are driving a large pink awesome van, but the constant stares are always a good reminder. 

 

We get shy opposition: 
 5

 

Before leaving the University of Pittsburgh a student walked by and began scratching his head. He glanced at us awkwardly a few times before scratching his head with his middle finger. Smooth… He didn’t have the courage to boldly wave the bird. Maybe because he was starting to question his beliefs. 

 

We get road rage: 

8

 

 

On the Pennsylvania Turnpike a driver waved a certain special finger at us. His car swerved into our lane. He doesn’t value the life of the pre-born or our safety! 

 

We get apathy: 

9

 

 

Some people just walk by. They think, “this isn’t my business” and just move on. The truth is abortion IS the largest human rights issue in the WORLD! Killing 3,000 children a day in the US alone is a BIG deal. Yes, it’s your business too. 

 

We even get hit on: 

10

 

 

“I like your slogan” three men shouted flirtatiously at a West Virginia McDonald’s drive-through as three beautiful pro-life women stepped out of the van. First off, McDonalds isn’t the best place to pick up men. Secondly, we are taken. #SorryBoys Thanks for the support though… I guess. 

 

We get money: 

11

 

 

“Do you all take donations?? Here is $20!” One woman yelled as she approached the van in a busy intersection in Cleveland, OH. 

 

But most importantly…

12

 

 

We get conversions:   “Oh, I didn’t know that!”

When you stand on the fence or are bashfully pro-life and you see determined young people proudly driving the Pink Fleet across the county it can be pretty convincing! Planned Parenthood betrays women. #prolifegen

November Event-in-a-Box: Celebrate National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Awareness month, where we celebrate the courageous mothers, open families, and treasured children all impacted by adoption. This month, we want you to bring the message that adoption saves lives to your school!adoption

Women need to know that if they choose to place their child for adoption, there will be a loving family ready to adopt their precious child. According to a representative w from the National Council for Adoption, “There are parents who wait years to adopt an infant. There are always more parents waiting than infants available to adopt.” This statement contradicts what many women believe. This is a selfless, courageous decision that should be affirmed by her family, friends, and peers.

Foster care is also a crucial part of caring for children who desperately need a home. It’s also another way to go through the adoption system for many parents.

The latest data on foster care indicates that a child enters care every two minutes and there are over 400,000 children in foster care. Half of children in foster care return to their parents but over 40% are adopted by their foster family.

To help combat the common misconceptions about adoption and foster care, your group can spread the truth through hosting a local adoption speaker and raising awareness on your campus. Personal testimonies have the profound ability to break through misinformation that students on your campus may have about adoption.

How  to  use  the  box?

Educate your group

Use one of your group meetings to go over the Adoption Saves Lives Planning Guide. Educate your group on the differences between foster care and adoption, appropriate adoption language, and tabling set up information.

It is incredibly important to use correct adoption terminology. You cannot speak accurately about adoption if you do not have the proper language.

Host a table event

In order to hold a table event, you will need to use the provided tabling materials that come in the box. Obtain butcher paper (any color) from the art department or Students activities center at your school for free roughly 6’ long. Use the provided markers to write “Did you know?” across the top. You can lay this across the top of your table, or tape it on the wall behind your table if one is available.

Make your table fun! Give out cupcakes, candy, and hot chocolate to students who engage with your group at your table. Use the provided “Adoption and foster care” awareness flyers to educate students on the facts. Then, give them a post it to write one fact or statistic that they learned, and stick it to the butcher paper. By the end of the day, your poster will be full of facts and statistics from fellow students.

Be sure to wear your Rock for Life “Adoption saves lives” t-shirts and stickers. Give out the Talk about adoption pins, postcards, info flyers, and wristbands at the table.

If you would like to purchase an Adoption Saves Lives t-shirt, use the included Rock for Life coupon for a great discount on awesome adoption apparel at http://rockforlife.org/.

Host a speaker

As a group, use the Adoption Saves Lives Planning Guide to plan an adoption speaker event. Two weeks before your event, post the adoption speaker flyers (get approved by administration if needed) all around your campus. Give your speaker at least 45 minutes to share and then leave room at the end for the speaker to answer questions. You can use your table event as an opportunity to invite students to the speaker event as well.

Christian University in WA Has Deep Ties to Planned Parenthood, Abortion Industry

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis details a conversation between a senior demon Screwtape to his nephew and apprentice Wormwood on how to make sure the “patient” compromises his values and morals. It’s eerily close to our current world, where evil infiltrates the very institutions that are supposed to be churning out well-formed pro-life individuals. Instead, we see Christian colleges and universities partnering with Planned Parenthood, allowing the students in their care to be educated by the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Recently, we exposed an internship with Planned Parenthood that Texas Christian University was offering for school credit to their students. Their nonchalant response was that everyone isn’t pro-life and that the school “strives to provide diverse learning opportunities for students to effectively prepare them for the global community.” Yeah, the global community of baby killing.

The fact that Christian universities should claim to be Christian seems completely lost on them.

What happened to adhering to Christian values, to preparing students to be evangelists for Jesus himself and adept to persuasively give witness in word and deed to foundational Christian principles of love, mercy, grace, including the respect and protection of all life, especially the preborn?

But TCU isn’t the only one. Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, also has ties to Planned Parenthood, who, by the way, committed over 324,000 abortions last year alone and who has been caught in numerous scandals, including the selling of body parts of aborted babies.

Whitworth Students for Life vice president James Silberman demanded his school cut ties with Planned Parenthood in a recent commentary piece in the campus newspaper, citing the facts that:

  • There are flyer cards all over campus referring students to Planned Parenthood
    put up by the school’s Student Success Center (they list also the pregnancy resource center number but Planned Parenthood should not be listed ever, in James’ and our opinion).Whitworth1
  • Planned Parenthood is listed as one of the school’s “community partners.”
  • Whitworth sponsored a community fetal tissue research event, highlighting the ‘upside’ of abortion as donating baby body parts and discussing how the undercover videos were highly edited and therefore discredited (By the way, they were authentic, according to two forensic studies).
  • The school offered an accredited internship with Planned Parenthood, where students were Whitworth intern P“professionally trained” by the abortion Goliath’s staff. Planned Parenthood was so proud of this, they even mentioned it in their 2010 annual report.
  • Planned Parenthood was able to recruit students at the school Volunteer Fair in October, signing up Whitworth University students and training them at their abortion facility.

As you may imagine, our Students for Life group on Whitworth’s campus may be feeling alienated because their Christian school is supporting the abortion industry. They’ve demanded the following actions from the school:

  • Remove Planned Parenthood from Whitworth’s volunteer community partners list and not allow Planned Parenthood to recruit student volunteers and interns on campus.
  • Remove Planned Parenthood referrals from campus walls.
  • Review the textbooks being used in classrooms (They promote pro-abortion talking points).
  • Publicly condemn the bloodshed that goes on inside Planned Parenthood.
  • Be part of the solution. Develop a community partnership with I-Choice, a pro-life pregnancy center just a few miles away from the campus. The pregnancy center provides free pre- and post-natal care for pregnant moms, as well as emotional and relational support. They even provide free shelter and a loving family atmosphere for those mothers and/or fathers who have nowhere to go.
