STAFFORD, Va. – Planned Parenthood has paid, full-time staff whose job it is to get out into the community and build relationships that enable it to influence the community to help advance its radical sexual agenda. It has a particular interest, of course, in organizations that deal with youth.
By being involved with such organizations, Planned Parenthood gains access to youth for its no-holds barred sex indoctrination, birth control, and abortion business. At the same time, it is able to form coalitions with community groups for the purpose of obtaining funding to implement its programs. Part of its “education” of children and youth includes recruiting them to advance Planned Parenthood’s radical political agenda.
Case in point: An obscure “appointment” headline in the What’s New on the Business Scene section of the Poughkeepsie Journal for July 12 announced that Amanda Moody, community and online organizer at Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley (PPMHV), has joined the board of directors of Family Services, Inc. Moody has a degree from Vassar in women’s studies.
By having a community organizer sit as a board member of Family Services, Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley gains the opportunity to exert influence in pushing its programs and agenda on troubled and at-risk youth and their parents through Family Services’ many programs, including Youth Services, Comprehensive Crime Victim Services & Forensics, Domestic Violence and Services, Substance Abuse Prevention, and Family Education.
We often see Planned Parenthood applying for and receiving grants to “assist” at-risk youth, and its coalitions with other community organizations are among the ways it gains access to funding streams. It uses the money to push its repugnant sex instruction, dangerous birth control, and abortions on those who often have no parent advocating for them, then recruits them to push its agenda.
While we have known for some time that Planned Parenthood had employees dedicated to building relationships throughout the community, it has only recently started using the term “community organizer” to describe the position.
Community organizers have long been associated with violent radical organizations and labor union abuses. For many Americans, their first exposure to the idea of community organizers was the 2008 presidential campaign, when they learned that Barack Obama’s background was in community organizing, and that Obama’s political career was launched by Bill Ayers—known for his role as an organizer with the radical Students for a Democratic Society and the leftist group Weather Underground in the 1960s and 1970s. Weather Underground gained notoriety for bombing government buildings, including the White House and Pentagon. Since then, Ayers has been involved in “reforming education” in Chicago.
The Wall Street Journal featured an article in September 2008 detailing what it called “Obama’s most important executive experience.” The article goes on to note:
From 1995 to 1999, [Obama] led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists.
The CAC was the brainchild of Bill Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s. Among other feats, Mr. Ayers and his cohorts bombed the Pentagon, and he has never expressed regret for his actions. Barack Obama’s first run for the Illinois State Senate was launched at a 1995 gathering at Mr. Ayers’ home.
Planned Parenthood has become a huge political force during the tenure of its present head, Cecile Richards. It comes as no surprise that Planned Parenthood is adopting a forthright political community organizing strategy, considering Richards’ tight-knit relationship with President Obama and her role in the writing of portions of Obamacare. It is also no surprise that Planned Parenthood has intricate ties with the organizations that take credit for writing and promulgating the National Sexuality Education Standards, which many speculate will become a part of Common Core educational reform.
The abortion giant first announced its community organizer model when it shut down its facility in Yuma, Arizona, in December 2013, leaving behind a community organizer to carry on its “educational” work in the community and make abortion referrals to larger Planned Parenthood facilities. It stated at that time that its intent was to get its sex education into the schools. We have seen several such instances since the Yuma community organizing strategy was announced. Poughkeepsie marks the first open admission we have seen that indicates community organizers are working in areas where Planned Parenthood still has facilities in operation.
Rey Flores, ALL’s community outreach coordinator, formerly worked as a community organizer in Chicago, as did his wife, Mary. Rey sounds the alarm with his explanation of community organizers:
A community organizer is one who agitates a community that is in some sort of complacency or depression. A community organizer seeks to assist such a community make social change in a number of ways.
In the best case scenario, a community organizer can identify a strong leader or leaders in such a community; then train and develop them in the ways of local political structures, using media, organizing others and eventually lead an organizing campaign.
In the worst case scenario—which is usually what happens—a community organizer works for advancing political interests of radical community organizations, local politicos, and larger networks of organizations and unions who all share similar or identical social agendas and goals.
The community organizer in this second case is nothing more than a poverty pimp who agitates and uses the poor/oppressed to push aforementioned political agendas, then abandons these people once they become useless to the larger agenda and the agents who run it.
Obviously, Planned Parenthood’s organizers work to fulfill the worst case scenario.
Mary told STOPP,
Just as we say guns don’t kill people, people kill people; community organizing doesn’t have to be used for evil. The devil himself didn’t sit down and write the book on community organizing, but he is a master of distortion and half-truths. These [organizing] tactics, when tempered with our Catholic faith, can be used to help people.
