WGRTL Chapter President Duane Hack's letter to the Times Georgian, August 6, 2015
Times Georgian -- Letter to the Editor-Attn Kathryn Campbell
Planned Parenthood: Is Margaret Sanger’s 20th Century Vision Coming to Fruition
By now, most of us have seen some if not all of the gruesome and detestable videos performed at several PPH facilities across the US.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of PPH, had this to say in her 1921 magazine “Birth Control Review”:
“The most urgent problem today, is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physical defective of our society. The undeniably feeble-minded should indeed; not only be discouraged, but prevented, from propagating their kind”
Other comments used by Sanger in her commentaries and speeches refer to immigrants, African-American and the poor as “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning human beings who never should have been born”
Let me ask you…Why is it that 80% of all PPH facilities are located in inner city depressed area, where high concentrations of minority populations reside?
PPH is the largest provider of on-demand abortions in America, with over 330,000 abortions performed annually. They receive in federal grants and subsidies over $550,000,000 from us hard working taxpayers.
Harvesting human body parts for profit, especially those of an innocent baby in the womb is incomprehensible, but also illegal (USC 42 289g1 and 2899g2).
It seems there’s a double standard in PPH’s vernacular when it comes to what abortion really is.
“The fetus is just a “clump of cells” when they suggest an abortion to one of their paying customers, but “human tissue” when they see an opportunity to make a sale for profit!”
God, please have mercy on our country for the reckless killing of over 57,000,000 babies in America through the act of abortion since 1973

Please find enclosed one of the most comprehensive and informative Pro-Life DVD’s I have ever seen compliments of West Georgia Right to Life!
This short 33 minute DVD details reasons why we are Pro-Life and also presents talking points for when we are confronted by those that may not see Life issues as we do. The DVD presents persuading conversations that sheds the light of the Gospel of Christ in Pro-Life conversations and in a Christian manner.
As we’ve closed down 2014, we are thankful for this special time of the year and also that Christ had a mother that “Chose-Life”, so that her Son Christ the Lord would be able to grant Eternal Life to those that accept him!
We thank you for your prayers. If you are not a member of WGRTL, please consider becoming a “Church or Individual Sponsor” to WGRTL, or making a one-time donation to our “Life-Cause.” Why….A Life is depending on it!

November 2014 Letter to the Editor:
Letter to the Editor
“Personhood-the 21st Century Pro-Life Movement-A Human Rights Perspective”
Personhood: “Each individual human life has an “unalienable” right to life, from its earliest biological beginning to natural death.” This right would be guaranteed as is penned through the writings found in the 14th Amendment of our Constitution under the “just due cause” and also stated in our Declaration of Independence:
“All men are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that are among them are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
“Unalienable Right”: a right conferred by God, a right that cannot be abridged by government because it does not originate with a lesser authority.
Personhood is established in the light of God’s Divine Law, a moral and biblical perspective, versus that of Natural Law of man. This perspective is presented in the book of Genesis and is the basis of Personhood’s philosophy of “Imago Dei”, “in the image of God”:
Genesis 1:27: So God created man in his own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female he created them.
The unborn child in the womb is and must be seen through the eyes of science, politics and common sense logic as a living “person”, not just as a blob of tissue to be discarded at random for convenience or monetary gain.
Brain waves at 8 days, heart beat at 4-6 weeks, all necessary body parts needed to survive and sustain life in place at 12 weeks, all that is needed is time for growth and development of the child in the womb.
Justice Harry Blackmun, writing his affirmative opinion after the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973 stated:
“(If the) suggestion of Personhood of the preborn is ever established, the (abortion rights) case of course collapses, for the fetus’ Right to Life is then guaranteed specifically by the 14th amendment”
Since adopting a “Personhood” strategy in Georgia over 10 years ago, we have seen numerous Pro-Life pieces of legislation passed into law. Georgia is now looked upon as a leader and standard-bearer in the Pro-Life movement across America, and establishing Personhood is at the forefront of this battle.
John Calvin stated it clearly in his writings on Life:
“If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own home rather then in a field, because his home is his place of refuge and security, it ought to be more of an atrocity to destroy the life of an unborn, whose only refuge and security is found in the womb of it’s mother”
Will you be a “torch-bearer” for those that have no voice, the unborn and aged?
We can do this by changing pubic opinion one heart at a time.
“If not you or I…then who?”
“If not now…then when?”

Letter to the Editor
“Taxpayer funding WILL support abortions through Obamacare”
Through recent in depth research, and “having read the bill in order to know what’s in it,” it’s a proven fact, American tax payers WILL fund abortions through Obamacare. Here’s the fact, as they are written WITHIN the law:
What’s an MSP in Obama Care
(Multi state plans: Heavy regulated private sector insurer plans operated under contracts with OPM (Office of Personnel Management)
MSP’s will be required and phased into all states through a stair-stepped plan, 100% participation by 2017. MSP’s goal is to increase competition with State run exchanges. MSP’s will have an advantage over state programs, since they will be advertised, promoted, administered and incentive laden through the OPM (using federal funds-tax dollars). How these MSP’s will affect the Hyde Amendment as a back-door funding to abortion is this:
Section 1334(a)(6) of ACA states:
In entering contracts under this sub section, the Director of OPM shall ensure that with respect to MSP qualified health plans offered in the exchange, there is at least one such plan that does not provide coverage of services described in section 1303(b)(1)(B)(i), which section is a definition of the Hyde Amendment, regarding abortions which are covered: rape, incest and narrow set of conditions regarding the life of the mother.
All being said, an MSP overseen by the OPM, will have the ability to write and promote health care policies through the federal exchanges (funded and promoted by OPM with tax dollars) that by-pass the Hyde Amendment in this section of ACA, Section 1334(a)(6)**
Sections 1303(b)(1) of ACA states:
Nothing in the title (or any amendment made by this title), shall be construed to require a qualified health plan to provide coverage of services described in paragraph (b)(i) or B(ii) (Hyde Amendment) as part of its essential health benefits for any plan year....the issuer of a qualified health plan shall determine whether or not the plan provides coverage of services described in subparagraph (B)(i) or B (ii) as part of such benefits for the plan year.**
**The Charlotte Institute - On Point
Multi State health Plans
Charles A Donovan
“We have to pass the bill, so you can find out what’s in it”
We’ve read it, investigated it and now understand it, Obamacare WILL use tax dollars to fund abortions!

Update from the Carrollton Independence Day Parade!
We had a great turnout for the Independence Day parade held on the 13th in Carrollton. The final count of walkers this year ended up being 41. Praise the Lord! We were able to hand out over 5,000 pieces of Pro-life information, which included our WGRTL tri-fold brochures, bookmarkers, and a fact sheet put together by the Carroll County Republican Party and WGRTL!
Thanks to all that helped in planning, building and walking in the float this year, only heaven will show us how many lives we were able to touch during this important Life outreach!
From the President's Pen:
“Fiscal Cliff” or “Human Cliff’
Either Way A Slippery Slope!
As we enter 2013, we are faced with the infamous 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision, making abortion legal on demand, the innocent killing of now over 55 million babies since the 7-2 Supreme Court decision January 22nd 1973.
Just this past week Planned Parenthood released their fiscal year 2011-2012 annual report, which presents record numbers concerning abortion performed and funding given.
- According to the report, reported by PPH itself:
- Abortions performed: 2011: 333,964
- Abortions performed: 2010: 332,278
- Abortions performed: 2009: 329,445
- Almost 1 Million abortions performed in the 3 year report!
According to the report, PPH had a banner year when it comes to funding from the government, receiving a record $542,000,000.00
That’s government funding funneled through our tax dollars!
Planned Parenthood claims these funds are used for “woman services”, but a report by Susan B Anthony Lists presents the following:
- Contraceptive services: Down 12%
- Cancer Screening: Down 29%
- Performs 145 abortions for every 1 adoption referral
- Performs 900 life-ending abortions a day in their facilities, so every 3 days the same amount of innocent human beings who lost their lives in the awful terrorist attack on 9-11-2001 also have their lives taken in a PPH facility.
Abortions and government funding are both on the rise at PPH, yet all the while their “focus on woman’s health care” is on the decline. Something just doesn’t make sense here!
The tragic massacre of 26 innocent people at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newton Ct sent shockwaves and fear throughout our nation, with new legislation and protective services being reviewed and developed, yet in a 24 hour period over 900 innocent human beings are murdered in PPH facilities in America and nothing is ever mentioned in the media!
As was stated by FDR the day after Pearl Harbor, December 7th will be “A date which will live in infamy”.
The same can be stated concerning January 22, 1973, the decision date of Roe V Wade, a day that changed the civility, innocence and view on life in America. It will ever be…
“A date which will live in infamy”

Pro-Life News: State and National
Michelle Obama: My Husband Stands for Promoting Abortion
First Lady Michelle Obama made it clear just what President Barack Obama “stands for” as he campaigns for re-election to another four-year term in the White House: abortion. Although Obama never said the word, Democrats never do these days in a tacit acknowledgement to the fact that a majority of Americans are pro-life, Michelle Obama talked about how Barack promoted pro-abortion Obama care as president and how he “stands for” abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/04/michelle-obama-my-husband-stands-for-promoting-abortion/
Media Hides Fact: Planned Parenthood Does 40% of Abortions
We are going to hear a lot about “reproductive choice,” “women’s rights,” and how wonderful Planned Parenthood is in the media this week. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/05/media-hides-fact-planned-parenthood-does-40-of-abortions/
Reasons to repeal the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Obamacare)
- Coerces individuals and Christian groups to violate their consciences and religious tenets by compelling them to provide abortifacients (day after pill) and contraceptives as benefits of health care plan.
- Unless a State opts out by forbidding abortion coverage, qualified health Plans that are sold thru the new Exchanges may include abortion coverage.
- HHS abortions are not paid for out of segregated accounts that must be established for premiums that are charged for non HHS abortions. Simply stated, FED tax dollars (credits) are paid from the regular accounts of insurers.
- National Right to Life has pointed out that PPAAC appropriates $7billion dollars for a new Community Health Center Fund that will subsidize community health centers without any restrictions against abortions or other anti-life treatment.
- A new 18 member Independent Financial Advisory board is charged with recommending overall cuts in medical spending that includes private health care. Secretary of HHS is empowered to impose “quality and efficiency” measures in order for physicians to be able to contract with any qualified health insurance program. Beginning Jan 1, 2015, a qualified health care plan may contract with a provider only if such measurements for efficiencies measures are obtained. Their goal will be to “make recommendations to slow the growth of national health care expenditures below the rate of medical inflation.”
- According to an August 2010 Congressional Budget Estimate, the Obama Health Care Law will cut $555 BILLION from Medicare over the next ten years.
- Section 3209 of Obamacare amends the section allowing private fee for service plans. This means that under Obamacare, Washington bureaucrats are given authority to limit, or eliminate, seniors ability to spend their own money on health insurance in “for fee to pay services.”
(My comments: This is the beginning of a Health Care rationing system!! Doctors, hospitals and other health care providers will be told by Washington just what tests and care are considered needed, both through Medicare and private individual insurance programs!)
