As mentioned in yesterday’s article, there are three organizations supporting Planned Parenthood in a Friend of the Court Brief to the Iowa Supreme Court in the Planned Parenthood of the Heartland v. Iowa Board of Medicine. The brief is against the Iowa Board of Medicine’s ban on abortions by telemedicine (also known as webcam abortions.)
And while these organizations have some good people with true intentions, it is important to see there is a lot of Planned Parenthood cronyism in their ranks.
National Women’s Law Center (NWLC)
NWLC is funded by the Ford Foundation, one of the largest private funders of abortion and population control programs throughout the world, a big-abortion funder whose Board of Trustees includes Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America,
NWLC’s Board includes Anita Hill, the now discredited woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.
Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV)
ICADV’s “Advisory Council” includes former PPH Board members, Bonnie Campbell and former Lt. Gov. Sally Pederson. Also on the Advisory Board: Dr. Linda Railsback, former Planned Parenthood of the Heartland employee.
Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault (IowaCASA)
An organization that will help victims of sexual assault sounds like something we can all get behind. But Amy Campbell, a lobbyist for IowaCASA and also the liberal League of Women Voters of Iowa, is well known for always pushing whatever the Planned Parenthood position is on any legislation.
But to truly understand how off the rails this group is, you need to read for yourself. Here is an excerpt from an article posted at the top of IowaCASA’s Facebook page:
“Kyriarchy 101: We’re Not Just Fighting the Patriarchy Anymore.” “To extend this example, let’s imagine two people: one is a white, cisgender, heterosexual, able-bodied woman. Another is a black, transgender, pansexual, disabled man. According to the theory of patriarchy, the woman would be oppressed and the man would be privileged.”
Can you imagine that having anything to do with helping sexual assault victims in Iowa? Neither could we.
Our goal again, is to show you, despite their well-meaning names, these “Friends” of Planned Parenthood are not mainstream groups.
