Kansas Church Invites Community To Come Celebrate 42 Years Of Abortion In America

Facebook/St. James Episcopal Church

According to recent reports, St. James Episcopal Church in Wichita, Kan., is preparing to mark the 42nd anniversary of legalized abortion with a chili dinner on church grounds later this month.

Tickets range from $20 to $1,000 for the Planned Parenthood-sponsored event, which promises “an evening of stimulating conversation, refreshments and CHILI!”

The event, dubbed Chili for Choice, is one of many anniversary celebrations planned throughout the nation to mark another year of allowing American women to legally kill their unborn children. Concerts and celebrity appearances mark many of these gatherings; however, an ostensibly Christian church willing to openly endorse abortion has attracted significant social media criticism.

Some outlets called on pro-life advocates to call the church in an effort to convince leaders to reconsider its partnership with Planned Parenthood. One such call was posted online.

While a church spokesperson admitted St. James teamed up with the organization, she denied the local affiliate has performed any abortions. Nevertheless, with an event celebrating ‘choice,’ a ubiquitous euphemism for abortion, critics were not shy in expressing their displeasure.

Remarks posted in response to one EAG News report on the issue included some pointed commentary.

“Maybe they should make that chili really hot so the attendees can get used to the heat,” one reader wrote.

Others criticized the Episcopal Church in general for its increased embrace of social leftism in recent years.

Shocking Truth On Planned Parenthood Clinics Revealed By Former Employee

In 2009, after eight years of working for Planned Parenthood, Abby Johnson abandoned the abortion industry when she noticed some unsettling aspects about her job.

Johnson, who has since established the pro-life ministry “And Then There Were None,” is now revealing some troubling facts about her former employer. In a recent July blog entry, Johnson discussed the enforced abortion quota established within abortion clinics, revealing a photo of a certificate awarded to Planned Parenthood when they exceeded the quota.

According to TheBlaze, the award was brought to Johnson’s attention by a clinic worker who recently left her job at the Rocky Mountains Planned Parenthood, located in Denver. The branch is apparently the second largest clinic in the U.S., and they reportedly entice their facilities with awards that are then displayed on a bulletin board.

The certificate states that it is awarded to Aurora “for exceeding abortion visits first half of fiscal year 2012 compared to first half of fiscal year 2013.”

Via ATTWN:

Many abortion supporters refused to believe it, citing that surely Planned Parenthood wants abortion to be safe, legal and RARE.  If they want something to be RARE, they certainly wouldn’t have quotas, right?

We recently had a clinic worker leave the affiliate, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.  This affiliate runs the 2nd largest Planned Parenthood facility in the U.S.  At this clinic in Denver, they give out various awards to their satellite clinics and post these awards on a bulletin board for everyone to see.

When our former worker saw this award on public display, it really started to change her thinking about Planned Parenthood’s motivation.  This award was given to their Aurora clinic for “exceeding abortion visits first half of fiscal year 2012 compared to first half of fiscal year 2013.”

This means that the Aurora Planned Parenthood exceeded the abortion quota that was imposed on them.  And THAT is award worthy according to Planned Parenthood.

Johnson says that after beginning her employment in 2001, she eventually progressed to the Health Center Director position, where she eventually began to see the warning signs.

Johnson’s desire is to reveal the truth of Planned Parenthood’s agenda. Her ministry’s goal is to “provide financial, emotional, spiritual, and legal support to anyone wishing to leave the abortion industry.” Understanding the struggle for finances as well as the fear of acceptance once someone leaves their job as a clinic worker, the ministry was launched to be a source of aid and support to those women.

Did You Know You Are Paying To Teach Young Teens About Dangerous Sex Acts?

According to information revealed in a sting operation by advocacy group Live Action, staff members at Planned Parenthood locations enthusiastically encourage teens under the age of 16 to experiment with violent – and potentially deadly – sexual intercourse.

While footage of the entire investigation has yet to be released, Live Action has published a selection of its undercover recording that depicts a conversation between an actress claiming to be 15 years old and a Planned Parenthood sex counselor.

The individual describes a variety of behavior that some would label abusive.

“I wouldn’t say ‘abuse,’” the counselor reasoned, “because it’s consensual. Patients will sometimes come in with rope burns or, um, markings on their breasts from, like, clamps, OK?”

She seemed unconcerned with the fact that a child of 15 is legally incapable of consenting to such acts – or any form of sex at all.

In other scenes recorded during the investigation, counselors encourage young girls to engage in mutual whipping, hitting, spanking, and other activity that often results in “blood” or other physical injuries.

A trailer for the forthcoming series, called “Sexed,” includes a rapid-fire sequence of outrageous advice being given by a series of counselors to what they believed to be an underage girl.

The young patient was told in various situations to “go to a sex shop,” become intimate with “multiple partners,” engage in “some asphyxiation,” get “tied to a bed or tied to a tree,” and generally determine “what type of pain you can take.”

This is not the first exposé Live Action has conducted against Planned Parenthood. In a previous investigation, the group found a rampant willingness for employees of the taxpayer-funded abortion provider to help sex traffickers and child sex abusers cover up their activities.

Not only does Planned Parenthood work diligently to prevent as many births as possible through its relentless support of abortion–it seems similarly dedicated to damaging the lives of those children who are born by encouraging violent sex acts with indiscriminate partners.

Find Out How Bobby Jindal Just Declared War On Abortion In Public Schools

Editor’s note: This article first appeared at Black Community News

Louisiana’s Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, signed a bill into law that bars abortionists from distributing “educational” material that promotes abortion in taxpayer-supported schools. Neither employees of abortion mills nor affiliates can speak to students about killing unborn babies. From LifeSiteNews:

The law will advance the state’s interest of “separating the abortion industry from our taxpayers,” Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life, told LifeSiteNews. “HB 305 extends that policy by making sure abortion businesses have no place in state-funded schools.”

“We appreciate the Senate’s vote today and look forward to Governor Jindal signing the bill,” Clapper told LifeSiteNews.

Lawmakers who supported the bill cited the state’s commitment to life and determination to protect underage girls from an industry they say exploits their ignorance and innocence.

“Louisiana has a long-standing policy of respecting the humanity of the unborn child,” said the bill’s sponsor, State Rep. Frank Hoffmann, R-West Monroe. “Abortion providers should not be able to access publicly funded school grounds with any direct or indirect efforts to promote abortion.”

A former abortion mill owner said the material she and others distributed encouraged abortions. “We have a whole plan that sold abortions, and it was called sex education,” Carol Everett said.

Abortion providers promoting abortion in schools isn’t just immoral; it’s a conflict of interest (or should be). Planned Parenthood pushes “sex education” and promotes illicit sexual activity among teenagers; then once the girls become pregnant…there’s Planned Parenthood ready to kill the “unwanted” babies. All power, no responsibility.

The state legislature approved other abortion-related measures. One would require abortion providers to give women seeking abortions information that describes the psychological effects of killing their unborn babies, among other things. The other bill would require medical facilities to keep brain-dead pregnant women on life support until the baby’s born.

In related news, Live Action has released a video of Planned Parenthood covering up statutory rape and other crimes through the years.

Missouri Just Made Planned Parenthood Very Mad With This Bill

A majority of legislators in the Show Me State want to make sure pregnant women interested in murdering a developing child have plenty of time to consider that life-changing – and life-ending – decision.

By overwhelming margins in both the state Senate and House, Missouri lawmakers voted to require women to wait three days from their first consultation with an abortionist before she may return to undergo the deadly procedure.

State Rep. Kevin Elmer supports the initiative, explaining the current waiting period is just 24 hours.

“The bill is a way to give a potential mother some additional time to think about this life-altering decision,” he explained; “and to talk to family and friends who can help provide support during what is undoubtedly a difficult and emotional time.”

Advocates with the organization Missouri Right to Life agreed, suggesting in a statement that the bill will “save babies and protect all women, both adults and minors, from abortion clinics seeking to make a profit on an abortion.”

According to Elmer, the motivation behind the bill was to “balance the rights of the mother with the rights of the unborn child.”

While the legislation would not entail “denying the mother her rights,” he noted, lawmakers are “simply asking her to give more thought before making a decision that she may later regret.”

At this time, there is no indication whether Gov. Jay Nixon will sign the proposal into law. If he does, Missouri will become the third state – in addition to Utah and South Dakota – to legislate such a waiting period.

Of course, anti-life leaders like Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards are weighing in against its passage.

“Governor Nixon must veto this bill and stand firmly with a woman’s right to make her own private medical decisions,” Richards said, “including the decision of whether to have an abortion, in consultation with her doctor.”

As Elmer explained, however, this bill would in no way restrict a woman’s access to legalized baby butchers – it would only give them a few more hours to give the decision some more thought. For many leftists, a waiting period is appropriate before an American can exercise his or her Second Amendment right, but completely absurd when it comes to slaughtering the unborn.
