With Obamacare Cash Comes New Abortion Supercenter for Planned Parenthood [St. Paul, MN]

ST. PAUL, Minnesota -- Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota (PPMNS) has announced that they are constructing a new clinic and administrative headquarters in St. Paul. According to Sarah Stoesz, President of PPMNS, Planned Parenthood is anticipating a possibly increased demand for its services because of the new federal health care bill.

Stoesz said that she was unsure "exactly what health care reform will mean for our patients." She continued, however: "But I anticipate that more people will access health care."

"We're not surprised to see Planned Parenthood position itself to receive millions more taxpayer dollars under [Alleged] President Obama's new health care mandates," said Scott Fischbach, Executive Director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL). "Obama's intent has always been to pour much more public money into Planned Parenthood, and the Minnesota affiliate is poised to build an enormous receptacle for that money."

The 46,000 square foot, three-story, LEED certified "green" structure is expected to open in 2011. It is one of a number of mega-clinics Planned Parenthood has opened recently or is planning to open, such as the 78,000 square-foot Houston facility that some have called the largest abortion center in the western hemisphere.

The current Highland Park abortion facility is located in a residential area, while the projected $16 million building will be built at Charles and Vandalia streets, a more industrial location. It will have a large parking area, fences, and greenery, aimed to increase privacy and to hinder pro-life counselors and protestors.

PPMNS received $5.26 million from federal, state, and local governments in 2008. Planned Parenthood Federation of America received about a third of its billion-dollar budget from the government in that year.

"Planned Parenthood is all about money, and its new abortion center is being positioned to take in many more millions of taxpayer dollars for abortions," Fischbach said. "It is a tragedy to see Planned Parenthood driving up its revenues at the expense of innocent unborn children and their mothers."

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards has previously said that the health care reform legislation will "significantly increase access to reproductive health care."

Minnesota currently allows low-income women to receive abortion coverage through Medicaid and has done so since the 1995 Women of Minn. v. Gomez case, which found that provisions limiting state abortion coverage to a few cases were against the state constitution.

So the federal govt(taxpayers really) will be paying more to have citizens abort babies. ..at the same time we will be paying illegals to have babies and paying for their housing, food, medical, schooling, busing, couseling, criminal prosecution, incarceration, parole etc etc.
Isn’t it wonderfull?

Abortion is murder, not “health care”.

Father Pavone said Obamacare is FOCA in disguise. It looks like he was correct.

Hell - why not just put it in a Walmart Super Center ... they got everything else.

Better yet - put it in a K-Mart. “Attention K-Mart Shoppers, Blue Light Special on Aisle 3 - murder on demand ...”

Stoesz said that she was unsure "exactly what health care reform will mean for our patients."

In this type of "health care", the plan is for at least half of their "patients" to die. In the case of twins, the goal is a 2/3 mortality rate.

Cool. So we can expect a myriad of options for killing the same kid now?

I kind of like the guillotine on the neck of the mother.

>> the health care reform legislation will “significantly increase access to reproductive health care.”

It’s not “health care” to kill innocent human life.

PP gets lots of taxpayer money to kill innocent humans.

After Obamacare, Planned Barrenhood ought to be the very next item defunded. But my question is this, why did the GOP allow Planned Parenthood to be funded with taxpayer dollars despite being in charge of both houses of Congress for over 10 years?

Because they're not really pro-life?

How is abortion "health care?" It isn't healthy for society. It isn't healthy for the mother. And it's downright fatal for the baby!!

It's telling that liberals have to invent phrases to describe their beliefs. The truth is just too awful to digest.
