TT: Planned Parenthood U.S. funding the push for abortion on demand in TT
LOCAL PRO-ABORTION group ASPIRE is reportedly getting about US$20,000 a month in funding from Planned Parenthood in the United States for its campaign to legalise abortions in Trinidad and Tobago. This was revealed yesterday by attorney-at-law Leela Ramdeen when she spoke at a seminar entitled “In Defence of the Unborn” organised by the Hospital Christian Fellowship at Crowne Plaza in Port-of-Spain. Ramdeen pointed out that Planned Parenthood, a driving force behind ASPIRE’s pro-abortion campaign, earns about US$500 billion a year from abortions performed in the US.Planned Parenthood obviously intends to advance their agenda to kill babies, by any means. To do so, they are willing to unravel the fabric of TT sociey, already wracked with problems, setting parents and children, husbands and wives at odds with each other.
“ASPIRE, on Radio 106 the other day, admitted they get money from Planned Parenthood for their work. I understand it is in the sum of about US$20,000 a month, that is more than TT$120,000. “These people are fighting because they are getting money, so it is worth their while to keep doing these things.” Ramdeen, a member of Lawyers for Jesus, said ASPIRE was closely linked to the research arm of Planned Parenthood, with access to all the top lawyers and professionals at the forefront of the US abortion movement. “When ASPIRE writes all these letters, quite often they just write to America, say what has been said about them and they get their answers straight back. They don’t have to work too hard.” Ramdeen told the gathering she had been accused by ASPIRE chairperson Lynette Seebaran-Suite of poisoning that group’s attempts to “promote rational and truthful dialogue” on the issue.
...She revealed that a recent attempt to stage a workshop, with support from a Government ministry, was derailed after it was discovered that it was being done without the knowledge or approval of the Minister.
“Now see the danger,” she said, “our Government, our Prime Minister says he is pro-life, so if ASPIRE can get a ministry to collaborate with them in running a workshop, see the danger for us, because they will be able to publicly say then that they have Government support.” Ramdeen and another attorney who spoke at the seminar, Pat Roberts, warned that the campaign was to make abortion on demand legal at any stage of pregnancy. Roberts noted that there were provisions in the ASPIRE document for minors to secure abortions without parental consent and for women to do the procedure without the knowledge, or consent of their spouses which could have the effect of “tearing families asunder.” In addition, the document also recommends fines and imprisonment for medical practitioners who refuse to perform abortions.
Through ASPIRE (what a name!) Planned Parenthood U.S. would force a culture of death on TT, and through that country, the entire region. For, sure as shooting, if TT goes for it, the other countries will be influenced to permit abortion on demand.
In the face of 3-D sonogram technology, there can be no doubt that what Planned Parenthood aspire to kill is a living and breathing human baby. In spite of technology revevealing their statements about the baby inside a woman's body being no more than a "blob of tissue," PP is still pressing ahead with its agenda worldwide. No longer is their aim contraception, now it is what Margaret Sanger fully intended it to be, murder of the little ones, which is what "foetus" means.
