In a book sure to be a hit with pagans and baby killers everywhere, Planned Parenthood’s top butcher, Cecile Richards levels some pretty serious charges against White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, and his wife, Ivanka Trump.
The liberal screed is titled, “Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead,” you know, because slaughtering an unborn infant, as it sleeps in the womb shows courage and leadership.
I’m going to assume harvesting the parts and selling them for a profit is called “business savvy.”
Richards claims in the book that an acquaintance from the fashion industry encouraged her to reach out to Ivanka Trump.
During the meeting, which Richards attended with her husband, Kirk Adams, Trump, and Kushner, the president’s son-in-law told her Planned Parenthood “had made a big mistake by becoming ‘political,’” according to People magazine.
So to be clear, the mistake wasn’t selling baby parts?
“The main issue, he explained, was abortion,” Richards says in her book. “If Planned Parenthood wanted to keep our federal funding, we would have to stop providing abortions. He described his ideal outcome: a national headline reading ‘Planned Parenthood Discontinues Abortion Services.’”
This is where Kushner and I are on the same page. There should be no taxpayer funded abortion mills. Ever.
Richards goes on to claim Kushner attempted to tease her with the promise of a boost in fundraising, were she to agree to stopping the abominable abortion practice.
“If it wasn’t crystal clear before, it was now. Jared and Ivanka were there for one reason: to deliver a political win,” Richards writes. “In their eyes, if they could stop Planned Parenthood from providing abortions, it would confirm their reputation as savvy dealmakers. It was surreal, essentially being asked to barter away women’s rights for more money. It takes a lot to get Kirk mad, but it looked like his head was about to explode.”
Yeah, if you guys want more money, you just harvest a lung or a brain from one of your victims. What she’s accusing them of, however, is attempting to change Planned Parenthood policy, in order to make Donald Trump look better.
The ghoulish Richards says she told Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens that it felt like a bribe.
She also wrote about the meeting she had with Ivanka Trump in January 2017.
“The purpose of the meeting, from Planned Parenthood’s perspective, was to make sure that Ivanka Trump fully understood the important role Planned Parenthood plays in providing health care to millions of people and why it would be a disastrous idea to block people from accessing care at Planned Parenthood,” the organization said in a statement at the time.
And we’ll say it again: Abortion has nothing to do with healthcare. Just because it’s done in a clinical setting with medical devices, it does not make it “healthcare.” The percentage of abortions performed to preserve the health of the mother is so small, it’s near-imperceptible.
Richards will be stepping down from her role as Planned Parenthood’s president, this year. Where they’ll find a bigger, more callous liar remains to be seen.
