Ex-Planned Parenthood Director: New Obama Mandate Works With China’s One-Child Policy to Cut Population

Longtime humanist and population activist Norman Fleishman, who has served as the executive director of Planned Parenthood World Population in Los Angeles, is still plugging away for Planned Parenthood’s “ideals” in the public sphere. Today, in an op-ed at the Napa Valley Register, Fleishman endorsed President Barack Obama’s birth control mandate and welcomed it as a plan that works well together with China’s one-child policy to cut down on the number of people in the world.

The Obama administration’s mandate that all health plans must provide to women, with no charge, all government-approved contraceptives, has already reignited debate on the federal role in health care.

Ah, how I remember “Every child a wanted child,” our motto at Planned Parenthood. And I do welcome this legislation. […]

[…] Unless we act (this legislation, along with China’s “one child” policy, is a start), the world is doomed to strangle among coils of pitiless exponential growth.

Will Planned Parenthood denounce this statement from Fleishman? No, because this is what Planned Parenthood is really about. Planned Parenthood receives a great deal of funding from pro-abortion population control activists, including Bill Gates and many others.

The “billionaires club” meeting, according to the Times, included such notables as Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, George Soros and Michael Bloomberg.

They all have a history of promoting abortion and using their vast fortunes to benefit groups like Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.

That Gates pushed the wealthy group into settling on population control as their “umbrella cause” isn’t surprising given that he outlined an ambitious project in February to reduce the world’s population by one billion, would eliminate one of out every projected nine people on the planet, or 11 percent.

The Gates Foundation has given the Planned Parenthood Federation of America abortion business almost $12.5 million since 1998, including funds to persuade teenagers to support abortion and to lobby the United Nations to advance pro-abortion proposals.

The Gates foundation has also given nearly $21 million to the International Planned Parenthood abortion business over the last seven years. The funds have gone to promote abortions in third-world nations and to set up pro-abortion family planning centers in South America, Africa and eastern European nations.

We might ask ourselves, if these billionaires are so interested in this agenda, why does the Obama Administration believe it’s important to force the rest of us, including religious groups, to help pay for it? It appears that the president’s view that babies are like punishment is manifest today in Fleishman’s op-ed.

This is what pro-lifers are referring to when we speak of a “Culture of Death“. We think a Culture of Life would be far better.

    I agree! A culture of Life is much better! After all, “Life begets Life!”  Life springs from Life!

    That motto is ridiculous.  “Every child a wanted child.”  And the solution, rather than helping people to take care of their children and teaching young people that children are a gift that should be cherished, they’re teaching them that if they don’t want a child it is okay to brutally murder him/her in the womb.

    Planned Parenthood would not speak out against China’s one child policy their China affiliate has been helping China since 1983~China passes qualification test of Int’l Planned Parenthood Federation….Established in 1952, the IPPF was among the world’s largest non-governmental organizations on family planning and reproductive health. China joined the IPPF in 1983 http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2006-10/30/content_720378.htm
    The China Family Planning Association (CFPA) plays a very important role in China’s family planning programme. It supports the present family planning policy of the government, which is appropriate for the present national situation, and duly reflects the needs and opinions of the people to the government so as to protect their legal rights. Its programmes have been well received by the people, and financially supported by the government. http://www.ippf.org/en/Where/CN.htm
    Following are some of the organizations which CFPA has close relations and program cooperation, such as:
    International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), The Ford Foundation, Japan Trust Fund,  Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), Netherlands Government, Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP), Public Media Center (PMC), Partners in Population and Development http://eng.chinafpa.org.cn/cooperation.html

    The Girl Scouts of the USA with the knowledge of the Catholic Church thru the NFCYM promote the doctrine of leading girls to abortion sites in their program.  Please I pray go see what 2 courageous girls who are former GS have learned. http://www.speaknowgirlscouts.com  FB started by C-FAM Austin Ruse and now managed by me Make the Girl Scouts Clean Again.  Our bishops must see the evil of this orginazation and ban all Catholic girls.  Lesbians and socialist are their role models.  Also see http://www.honestgirlscouts.com and http://www.girlscoutswhynot.com.  If you see this evil you must pray and expose them as I do.  I am a 67 yr old Lifetime Mbr. and a mbr. of the Catholic Comm in St.L.  I am not popular in this group as I expose the evil.  $$$$$ is the factor in this deception.  The GS made over 714 Million off of just their cookies not to mention the stuff.  Please have courage and pray that our shephers have our girls as their focus.  The NFCYM is evil and a Catholic org. that should be protecting the girls.  Doing Gods work.  Jane
