"A War on Women": DN! Exclusive with Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards on GOP Bills Targeting Abortion and Reproductive Rights

Since taking control of the House last month, Republicans have introduced several major anti-abortion bills that women’s rights activists say could place severe limitations on access not only to abortion, but complete reproductive health and family planning services. We speak to Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which provides family planning, contraception and abortion services at more than 800 clinics and health centers across the U.S. serving more than three million patients a year. No federal dollars are used to fund its abortion services. "The most ridiculous part about it is that, for Congressman Pence and the others who are proposing these bills, Planned Parenthood does more to prevent unintended pregnancy and the need for abortion than any organization in America," Richards says. "This is not what the American people voted for."

Women are silent casualties of war on drugs
When the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University analyzed the costs of alcohol and drug abuse in a 2001 report, it concluded that the 50 states spent an incredible $81.3 billion in 1998 alone. Of every dollar spent on substance abuse, it found that 96 cents went to "shovel up the wreckage" brought on by addiction and substance abuse, while only four cents went to prevention and treatment.

In 2001, the federal Center for Substance Abuse Treatment evaluated 50 residential treatment programs designed specifically for substance-abusing women who were pregnant or the mothers of infants or young children, the results were better than anyone had anticipated. The study showed an 84 percent reduction in the risk of low birth-weight babies and a 67 percent reduction for infant mortality. Even more telling, 60 percent of participants reported being alcohol- and drug-free during the six months following discharge, and only 7 percent of participants arrested for alcohol- or drug-related offenses.



Thalidomide v Cannabis
Thalidomide: New Results

In January, a thalidomide developer, Celgene, of Warren, New Jersey, announced that the data from its trial in 99 people with AIDS wasting showed a statistically significant weight gain. The company seems to have "jumped the gun," as one person close to the trial put it. No data were yet available from the trial to justify Celgene's press release.

Drug company rebuked for marketing thalidomide as cancer fighter

In 1957, the drug thalidomide was approved for use in Europe as a treatment for morning sickness caused by pregnancy. Thousands of women took the pills, assured by the drug maker that they were safe.

Unfortunately, the drugs had primarily been tested as a sleep aid for elderly patients -- not on pregnant women. By the time its tragic side effects were known, it was too late to help the than 12,000 babies born with severe birth defects.

Today, it is known that even one capsule of thalidomide can cause devastating defects, including the development of flipper-like limbs.

Yet, the Celgene Corporation has promoted the pill as a cancer treatment, despite warnings from the FDA.

Obama’s $3.7 Trillion Budget Calls for Military Spending Increases and Deep Cuts to Social Service Programs

The Rights of Women as Casualties of War
“Nahil Abu-Rada is not the first woman to lose her baby this way because of the occupation, and she won't be the last.”

Many Afghan women are caught between the lethal occupation of foreigners and the extremism and vengeance of the Taliban. Early marriages are often the only available opportunity for women in some parts of the country, once they reach a certain age, sometimes as young as 9-years-old.
The same can be said about Iraq, where women, who comparatively achieved high status in pre-war years; have since endured untold humiliation. Thanks to the US ‘liberation’ of their country, they now constitute a large percentage of regional prostitution, a phenomenon alien to Iraqi society of yesteryear.

What is missing from the reports, and subsequent analyses is how conflict, war and military intervention often jeopardize, more than anything else, the rights and welfare of women.

The issue of women’s rights is a pressing one, not just because of the horrifying statistics. (Women and girls are the poorest, least educated and most victimized the world over.)

Corporate Welfare Rats
Corporate welfare corrupts the political process. One perverse, but predictable outcome of a $100 billion-plus corporate welfare state is that industry begins to view Congress, rather than consumers, as their real customers. Moreover, industry has done an all effective job at protecting their subsidies.

Law enforcement was among the winners in the massive economic stimulus bill passed last week by Congress and signed this week by President Obama. The package includes nearly $3.8 billion for state and local law enforcement, much of it destined for enforcing the country's draconian drug laws.

Witness: Drug War Spraying Colombia To D.E.A.th
According to Jena Matzen, a Hillsborough resident, the white flag did not have the desired effect; the pepper crop was destroyed nevertheless, by planes dropping enormous quantities of an herbicide called glyphosate -- marketed by Monsanto in this country under the brand name Round-Up -- as part of the U.S. war on drugs.

Another slide shows a mural painted by elementary school children, depicting scenes before and after American airplanes spread poison across Colombia’s commercial and subsistence crops. The "before" portion of the mural is a lush landscape with animals and green trees, and the "after" is a barren desert with animal bones scattered around. Between the two contrasting panels is a squadron of dark, menacing airplanes.

MT NORML Files Suit On Killer Fungus Research!

Mycoherbicides are so destructive that governments have even stockpiled them as weapons!

McDonough, who came to Florida to join Gov. Jeb Bush's administration after working for White House drug czar Barry McCaffrey, has been holding meetings in Tallahassee to try to get state agencies on board with the idea of testing Fusarium oxysporum, a co-called "'mycoherbicide," in Florida.

"'It's not been used yet," McDonough said, adding that if Florida were to test the soil-borne fungus, it would do so in a state quarantine facility in Gainesville, where researchers isolate citrus canker and other plant diseases. Before it could ever be released, it would need extensive review.

The Montana company that is developing the killer fungus, Ag/Bio Con., gave state officials literature saying the fungus "does not affect animals, humans or any other crops."

DEP scientists reached a far different conclusion: "It is difficult, if not impossible, to control the spread of Fusarium species," DEP Secretary David Struhs wrote in a letter to McDonough. "The inability to guarantee that the organism will not mutate and attack other plant species is of most concern.



Collaterally Damaged Guatemala
Today's headlines about another confrontation between Drug traffickers, DEA and Guatemalan security forces in Zacapa is just a repetition of the ongoing story of the ineffective and dangerous anti drug war implemented by the US in our territory and the region: the Merida Plan, Plan Mexico and Plan Colombia.

War rape - Wikipedia
During war and armed conflict, rape is frequently used as means of psychological warfare in order to humiliate the enemy and undermine their morale. War rape is often systematic and thorough, and military leaders may actually encourage their soldiers to rape civilians... Sexual violence in warfare is frequently perpetrated against women and children, and the perpetrators of sexual assault "commonly include not only enemy civilians and troops but also allied and national civilians and even comrades in arms."...

German women who became pregnant after being raped by Soviet soldiers in World War II were invariably denied abortion to further humiliate them as to carry an unwanted child.

During the Bosnian war, Serb forces conducted sexual abuse strategy on the thousands of Bosnian Muslim girls and women which became known as "mass rape phenomenon".

There are many reported rape cases of Tamil girls and women by Sri Lankan army soldiers during the Sri Lanka civil war.

Crimes against humanity and war crimes
The Rome Statute Explanatory Memorandum, which defines the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court, recognises rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, "or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity" as crime against humanity if the action is part of a widespread or systematic practice.

Crimes Against Nature



Bushît Hypocrisy & Double Standards

Who are the Victims?

1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed rape; 2.8% attempted rape).

17.7 million American women have been victims of attempted or completed rape.

9 of every 10 rape victims were female in 2003.
While about 80% of all victims are white, minorities are somewhat more likely to be attacked.



In 2000, 83.6 in 1,000 women aged 15-19 became pregnant-a 28% decline from 1990, when the teenage pregnancy rate reached a high of 116.9 per 1,000 women.

One of the main determinants of the availability of safe abortions is the legality of the procedure.


U.S. State abortion statistics

The teenage birth and abortion rates also declined between 1990 and 2000. (Pregnancies are calculated as the sum of births, miscarriages (including stillbirths) and abortions.)

Abortion has a low risk of maternal mortality except for abortions performed unsafely, which result in 70,000 deaths and 5 million disabilities per year globally. Abortions are unsafe when performed by persons without the proper skills or outside of a medically safe environment.

Wallstreet's Spontaneous Abortionists

Spontaneous Abortion
"In the United States, fertility rates continue to decline and age-related spontaneous abortion is on the increase.

"Flulike symptoms, including fever, chills; can cause spontaneous abortion or stillbirth; can cause severe illness in newborns and immune-depressed people.

"Deficiency can produce: fatigue, blood clotting, red blood cell destruction resulting in anemia, coronary thrombosis, infertility (in both men and women), menstrual problems, spontaneous abortion (miscarriage), uterine degeneration, neuromuscular impairment, neurological dysfunction, and oxygen-starved cells making them susceptible to cancer.

A California Department of Health study surveyed 5,144 pregnant women and fount that pregnant women who consumed more than 5 glasses of water a day containing more than 75 ppb (parts per billion) had double the risk of spontaneous abortion. Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill also examined the link between THMs and miscarriages in populations living throughout central North Carolina. They found that women who suffered the highest exposure to THM in the drinking water had almost triple the risk of miscarriage."

Spontaneous abortion and maternal work in greenhouses.
A positive association between maternal occupational exposure to pesticide and spontaneous abortion has been reported in some studies. Work in greenhouses may imply exposure of pregnant women to pesticides continuously and at elevated level.

"Environmental Protection Agency has linked exposure to mercury vapor to menstrual disorders and spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) as well. Mercury exposure in pregnant women can cause neurological damage, such as lowered intelligence and delayed development in infants. In addition, the mortality rate for infants is significantly increased when mothers are exposed to mercury."

* Consumers concerned about health risks of salmon - Guardian
* Mercury poison or hemp oil?
Nutritious hemp oil is emerging as alternative to toxin-tainted fish.
New study finds mercury pollution is a serious health risk for those that eat fish.

Hemp Oil vs Fish
Hemp seed oil has been called Nature's perfect blend of Essential Fatty Acids due to the large amount of these substances contained in the oil. Specifically Hemp seed oil has large amounts of Lineolenic (Omega-3), and Lineoleic (Omega-6) fatty acids. These are considered to be essential by nutritionists since humans are unable to synthesize them, thus they must consume them from an external source.

Pregnancy and Pot
By "Dr Kate" - Monday, August 31 1998
Pot can be safely used during pregnancy, and can help with several of the discomforts/problems associated therewith ? a fact little known by the medical community, and even much of the herbalist community.

Pot while breast-feeding
This suggests that a baby fed by a lactating marijuana user might be more likely to have a healthy, well-regulated appetite.

There are several other studies of the effects of marijuana use on the fetus. None have shown any significant differences in functioning.

Ganja mothers, ganja babies

Marijuana during pregnancy
The 30-day test showed that children of ganja-using mothers were superior to children of non-ganja mothers in two ways: the children had better organization and modulation of sleeping and waking, and they were less prone to stress-related anxiety.

Hemp Good for Iowa
According to most religious texts, God gave mankind dominion over all the plants of the earth. Apparently the point was to encourage us to explore the many uses items that can be made from plants: medicine, clothing, food, shelter, boats, paper and weapons can all be made with plants. 

The rain forest is made of millions of acres of trees, flowers and ferns hiding a horn-of-plenty filled with medical wonders researchers have yet to fully tap... Cotton, wool and synthetic fibers are commonly used to make the clothes the entire planet wears... Few trees are safe from being turned into paper or lumber... Yet in the United States we have made one of the best alternative sources for all of these items illegal: hemp... Few plants in history have been as unfairly demonized as the cannabis plant, but Iowa legislators are taking the initiative to undo all this and bring hemp production back to America in time for the new millennium.

Marijuana Native To Iowa
"Hemp, a tough fiber made from the leaves and flowers of the marijuana plant, can be found all over the state of Iowa growing wild, and is a remnant from when it was cultivated in Iowa earlier in the previous century, There is even an abandoned hemp processing facility in Grundy Center, a town near Dubuque."
~ Deborah Lewis, a curator in the botany department.

Group of Iowa State U. Students Advocate MJ & Hemp
"The government had farmers grow hemp during World War II to make rope," he said. "It's a good natural resource. We want to educate people because there is a lot of bias against hemp."



An exploratory analysis of the effect of pesticide exposure on the risk of spontaneous abortion in an Ontario farm population... We observed moderate increases in risk of early abortions for preconception exposures to phenoxy acetic acid herbicides; 95% confidence interval, triazines, and any herbicide. For late abortions, preconception exposure to glyphosate, thiocarbamates, and the miscellaneous class of pesticides was associated with elevated risks.

Tobacco and alcohol use by pregnant women has adverse effects on the fetus. Tobacco use causes an increase in SIDS and miscarriages. It is estimated that 3700 children die by the age of one month because of complications from the mother's smoking during pregnancy.

COMMON ARSENICAL PESTICIDE UNDER SCRUTINY
According to the U.S. EPA, MSMA "can reasonably be anticipated to cause cancer in humans" and is converted in the environment to inorganic arsenic, a known human carcinogen. About 4 million pounds of MSMA is applied every year to golf courses and cotton fields in the United States to control weeds. The pesticide has been banned in India and Indonesia.

Pesticide Exposure in Farm Families Linked to Spontaneous Abortion
The timing and types of pesticide exposures are critical determinants of reproductive outcomes, according to a recently published study by Canadian researchers. The study examined pesticide exposures based on recall by farm families and reported histories of spontaneous abortions among women living on the farms. The study found strong evidence that a woman's exposure to pesticides in the three months prior to conception or in the month of conception significantly increased her risk of spontaneous abortion.

The anti abortionists, who are Christians by faith, think that the Bible underscores their viewpoint against abortion. Now, Christians avail of Bible verses to form logic behind their convictions. For instance, the Bible teaches that innocent life should not be taken.
(Genesis 9:6, Exodus 20:13, Deuteronomy 27:25a, Proverbs 6:16-19).

Switching cotton fields to hemp fields would improve: the quality of our soil, the durability of our clothes, the safety of our ground source water, the quality of our air, and the preservation of forests cut for paper (not to mention saving hundreds of thousands of lives prematurely ended by disease caused by pollution)

The oldest cultivated fiber plant known, hemp has a history of use in textiles and fabrics dating back as far as 8000 B.C. The reasons for hemp's continued popularity throughout the years are still applicable today and are the basis for the renewed interest in cultivation and use. Hemp is strong, warm, and long wearing.

Nixon's lumping Medicinal and Hemp into the mix after the 1937 Marihuana Tax Ax was overturned kept crude oil, trees, cotton, booze, pesticides, plastic and wars protecting the pillages free to profit, without competition. Just a coincidence? Nixon did what the international banksters and corporate status weird said to do. Nothing about law and order. Law and odor work for big biz the same as the Washington politikons.

Al Capone and Watergate were red herrings to divert the countries attention from the Fascist acts of eliminating competition. Booze/Ethanol or Ganja//Hemp.

Abortion Rights are Pro-Life

Anti-Abortion And Pro-Choice
This website proposes an anti-abortion and pro-choice position to the abortion debate. While we want to prevent abortions, we simultaneously intend to do so without violating a woman's freedom by forcing her to carry or give birth to a baby.

Pro-Choice Validity

Unfortunately, another horror plagues society. Many anti-abortionists take a so-called "pro-life" position and use violence and coercion to often essentially turn pregnant women into slaves.

In the struggle to reduce and end abortions, many anti-abortion activists try to force pregnant woman to carry and give birth to the unborn child. Anti-abortion activists can do that by appealing to governments to illegalize abortion. Other times, activists use coercive force themselves, such as bombing and terrorizing abortion clinics.

Despite the horrifically disgusting nature of abortion, anti-abortionists must not mirror that horror by denying any woman rights to her body. More violence and coercion cannot solve the problem.

Additionally, forcing women to give birth to unwanted children leads to arguably worse problems, especially in a world in which 16,000 children die of starvation every day, millions of people commit suicide yearly, and even more live their lives in jails. Also, illegalizing abortion leads many women to perform illegal and unsafe abortions.

Get Government Out Of Abortion

Using governmental, coercive, or violent force to try and prevent abortion cannot work. Like many issues, politicians may use the abortion issue to gain votes and pander to their respective political parties. The Libertarian Party understands the failure of government and coercion:

"Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that libertarians can hold good-faith views on both sides, we believe the government should be kept out of the question. We condemn state-funded abortions. It is particularly harsh to force someone who believes that abortion is murder to pay for another's abortion. It is the right of the woman, not the state, to decide the desirability of prenatal testing, Caesarean births, fetal surgery, and/or home births." -Libertarian Party Platform

Similarly, Libertarian Harry Browne says:

"Whatever we believe abortion is, we know one thing: government doesn't work, and it is as incapable of eliminating abortions as it is of eliminating poverty or drugs."

Using government, coercion, and violence to try and force women only further divides the differing viewpoints and increases the horror.

Romney: Bill Clinton strikes back

Bill Clinton in a statement on Romney’s welfare attack: “Governor Romney released an ad today alleging that the Obama administration had weakened the work requirements of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act. That is not true. The act emerged after years of experiments at the state level, including my work as Governor of Arkansas beginning in 1980. When I became President, I granted waivers from the old law to 44 states to implement welfare to work strategies before welfare reform passed.

“After the law was enacted, every state was required to design a plan to move people into the workforce, along with more funds to help pay for training, childcare and transportation. As a result, millions of people moved from welfare to work. The recently announced waiver policy was originally requested by the Republican governors of Utah and Nevada to achieve more flexibility in designing programs more likely to work in this challenging environment. The Administration has taken important steps to ensure that the work requirement is retained and that waivers will be granted only if a state can demonstrate that more people will be moved into work under its new approach. The welfare time limits, another important feature of the 1996 act, will not be waived. The Romney ad is especially disappointing because, as governor of Massachusetts, he requested changes in the welfare reform laws that could have eliminated time limits altogether. We need a bipartisan consensus to continue to help people move from welfare to work even during these hard times, not more misleading campaign ads.”USA Today: “Former President Bill Clinton is backing up successor Barack Obama, blasting a Mitt Romney ad attacking the incumbent over welfare reform as untrue.”

The Romney campaign’s response from Ryan Williams: “President Obama was a vocal opponent of the innovative, bipartisan welfare reforms that President Clinton and a Republican Congress passed in 1996. His administration has now undermined the central premise of those reforms by gutting the welfare-to-work requirement. Unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney has a record of fighting to strengthen work requirements. As president, he will ensure that nearly sixteen years of progress aren’t erased with one stroke of a pen.”

The Boston Globe: “Romney says Obama favors 'culture of dependency'.”

The Iowa wind story isn’t blowing away: “Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has been savaging what it calls President Barack Obama’s ‘unhealthy’ obsession with ‘green jobs,’” the AP writes. “The Republican challenger criticizes the government program that propped up solar manufacturer Solyndra, and he mocks Obama’s vision of a boom in employment, citing a European study to argue that new solar or wind-energy positions would destroy jobs elsewhere. But when a campaign spokesman said last week that Congress should let a tax break for wind energy producers expire at the end of the year, some Republicans were concerned the candidate had gone too far.

“Republican Rep. Tom Latham, R-Iowa, noting that nearly 7,000 Iowans work in the wind industry, assailed the Romney campaign for ‘a lack of full understanding of how important the wind energy tax credit is for Iowa and our nation.’ Iowa’s senior senator, Chuck Grassley, told reporters he didn’t believe Romney really opposed the extension, and he joined five other GOP lawmakers in voting for it in the Senate Finance Committee.”

“A group that opposes the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on gay members is using presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to help make its case,” the Boston Globe notes. “Romney’s campaign restated his position that gay people should be allowed to join the Boy Scouts of America in an Associated Press story published on Saturday. Romney first declared his support for gay scouts and leaders in 1994 -- when he was a member of the organization’s executive board -- during an unsuccessful run for US Senate. In a debate that year, Romney said, ‘I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.’ Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the AP that the former Massachusetts governor nominee feels the same way today.”

The RNC announced more speakers at their convention, including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, whom RNC Chair Reince Priebus called a headliner. Also speaking: Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who is African American; Texas Republican U.S. Senate Nominee Ted Cruz; Puerto Rico Governor Luis Fortuño; and Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens.

Romney’s Bain Capital invested in companies that moved jobs overseas

Mitt Romney’s financial company, Bain Capital, invested in a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.

During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

While economists debate whether the massive outsourcing of American jobs over the last generation was inevitable, Romney in recent months has lamented the toll it’s taken on the U.S. economy. He has repeatedly pledged he would protect American employment by getting tough on China. continued...
