The following information is from Florida Family Policy Council.

ACT NOW: Contact Governor Scott #FLDefundPP

FFPC Press release | Tallahassee, FL

The Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC), led by President and General Counsel John Stemberger, held a press conference to herald the launch of a statewide campaign — on behalf of thousands of pro-life Floridians — calling on Gov. Rick Scott to fully defund Planned Parenthood in the state, and redirect those funds to the more than 600 community health clinics in Florida.

Deception: Planned Parenthood provides essential care women can’t get anywhere else

Planned Parenthood wants you to believe that they provide essential services women can’t receive anywhere else. We say they’re wrong. Watch this short video clip from Alliance Defending Freedom​ explaining why.

Additional videos debunking Planned Parenthood deceptions can be found here.

Facts about Planned Parenthood

This resource includes stats on the number of procedures Planned Parenthood performs every year, including the number of abortions they provide, breast exams, Pap tests and cancer screenings. This resource also compares the services provided by Planned Parenthood Clinics to other Community Health Centers. This resource addresses the history of Planned Parenthood’s failures to report sexual abuse and sex trafficking, its involvement in sex-selective abortion, race-targeted abortions, and baby body part harvesting.

Planned Parenthood Fact Sheet

This fact sheet from Liveaction.org provides by year the number of abortions Planned Parenthood performs annually, clearly showing a vast increase in abortions performed by the organization in the last 20 years. This resource also provides a brief overview of Planned Parenthood’s funding sources; leadership; controversial statements; and past/ongoing investigations into the organization for fraud, failure to report sexual abuse, questionable medical processes, and failure to follow parent-consent laws. A brief history of Planned Parenthood and its founders can also be found here.

Profit. No Matter What

ADF’s Annual Report on Publicly Available Audits of Planned Parenthood Affiliates and State Family Planning Programs

Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) research strongly suggests that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates are engaged in a pattern of practices designed to maximize their bottom‐line revenues through billings to complex, well‐funded federal and state programs that are understaffed and rely on the integrity of the provider for program compliance.

ADF White Paper: State Termination of Medicaid Providers

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and its affiliates have been subjected to heightened scrutiny in the wake of a congressional investigation into its apparent fraud, waste, and abuse of taxpayer funding, and the release of undercover videotapes that appear to show Planned Parenthood officers discussing illegal means of circumventing fetal tissue procurement laws. As a result of these developments, Alliance Defending Freedom and its allies have received inquiries regarding whether, and under what circumstances, states possess the legal authority to disqualify Planned Parenthood affiliates from participation in state Medicaid programs. This white paper provides a brief overview of state authority for terminating a Medicaid provider, as well as the process involved in doing so and the constitutional ramifications of such an action.

9.22.2015Letter to Governor Scott: Florida Family Policy Council

Letter provided to Governor Scott outlining a list of current investigations of Planned Parenthood, a list of known abuses by Planned Parenthood in Florida, Planned Parenthood’s current taxpayer funding sources in Florida through Medicaid and Title X, a list of other states who have discontinued their Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood, and a request urging the Governor to discontinue these contracts.

10.02.2015Press Release: FFPC Launches Campaign to Defund Planned Parenthood in Florida, Demands Gov. Rick Scott Utilize Executive Action Immediately

FFPC is asking Governor Scott to take immediate executive action on the following two things:

  1. Terminate Florida’s Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood.
  2. Terminate the subcontracts of Title X funds with Broward and Collier County.

FFPC is releasing a series of fact checks on Governor Scott’s response to our demand that he defund Planned Parenthood.

CLAIM: It would violate Federal Law if Governor Scott terminated Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid contract.

Fact Check (1 of 4): Reasons Florida Gov. Rick Scott Refuses to Defund Planned Parenthood

“In a rare moment of agreement, Scott and Planned Parenthood questioned the governor’s authority to do that. ‘If the state were to take action to exclude Florida Planned Parenthood affiliates from Medicaid this would be in clear violation of federal law,’ Planned Parenthood Spokesperson Goodhue wrote. ‘Only around $45,000 in state match goes through the federal Medicaid program to Planned Parenthood offices in our state, and that is guided through the federal Medicaid formula in compliance with federal law,’ Scott spokeswoman Jackie Schutz wrote in an email.” – Margie Menzel, Oct 1, 2015 CBS / News Service of Florida

Reality

States not only have the obligation, but the legal right to terminate the Medicaid contracts of those healthcare providers who are no longer deemed qualified. In fact, the powers of a state Medicaid program to exclude a provider are broader than those of the federal government. A state Medicaid program may exclude a health care provider from participation “for any reason for which the Secretary could exclude the [provider] from participation” (i.e., the grounds for discretionary exclusion enumerated above) “[i]n addition to any other authority.” 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(p)(1) (emphasis added).

Moreover, exclusion of Medicaid providers for a variety of reasons is relatively common and rarely challenged. According to the HHS Office of the Inspector General, over 9,000 providers have been excluded as Medicaid providers over the last two decades. In Florida, executive action has terminated hundreds over the past two decades. Exclusion of a Medicaid provider is thus nothing new. It is a common experience for states to suspend or terminate a Medicaid provider’s participation in the program. Planned Parenthood is no exception.

Finally, it should be noted that the disqualification of Planned Parenthood from any state Medicaid program would not deny anyone a meaningful choice of providers. Planned Parenthood represents a very small part of the Medicaid-eligible providers in every state. Governor Scott clearly has the authority to disqualify Planned Parenthood, and he should not give Planned Parenthood a free pass. Were they any other Medicaid provider, they would have already been disqualified.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
