American Life League is Anti-Life
Today I received an email from the American Life League (ALL), one of the numerous extreme freedom-hating organizations run by extreme freedom-haters. The email is titled “STOPP’s Special Report on Planned Parenthood Clinical Trials”. ALL tells us that some medical research is bad, because Planned Parenthood is involved.
Last year, we brought you the story of how Planned Parenthood has been getting involved in clinical trials as a way to increase its professional identity and as a way to increase its income. We have recently completed a review of the government database on clinical trials and found 33 of them that involved Planned Parenthood.
They then go on to enumerate every single one of these trials, so you know just how nefarious Planned Parenthood is. ALL wants us to know that:
Planned Parenthood is not just another organization doing abortions and other procedures, but it is intimately involved in creating and evaluating techniques and finding ever more efficient ways of killing babies.
So what are some of the job titles at Planned Parenthood? Director of Baby Killing? Chief Researcher, Baby Murder? Or maybe Fetus Fatality Facilitator?
Trials on Underage Girls
ALL is upset that some of the trials involve minors. Like all fundies, they believe that teenage girls aren’t interested in sex unless forced into the act by Planned Parenthood (and the only reason Planned Parenthood does that is so the girls will get pregnant and need an abortion, thus providing revenue for Planned Parenthood. Those devious bastards!).
These are some of the studies that ALL is opposed to:
Two of the trials are specifically aimed at getting these minor girls to take their birth control more consistently by sending them text messages reminding them to take their pills.
Actually, what’s upsetting ALL is the text of the messages itself: “You haven’t had sex yet today! Find a boy now!“
Emory University is a sponsor of three of the clinical trials, all involving underage African-American girls
This is code-speak for eugenics. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, once supported eugenics, so fundies believe that the organization, in the 21st century, is somehow dedicated to that long-abandoned notion. I guess since fundies cling to long-outdated notions, they assume that everybody else does as well.
Emory and the National Institutes of Health are conducting a trial with Planned Parenthood of Georgia to develop and test a culturally and gender-appropriate (African-American girls) sexual health education program designed to promote long-term maintenance of HIV preventive sexual behaviors over a long follow-up period. Girls as young as 14 are participating in this trial.
Emory and the National Institutes of Health are also conducting another trial with Planned Parenthood of Georgia to study the efficacy of a multi-session HIV prevention program (HORIZONS HIV) for African-American female teens. This completed trial accepted girls as young as 15.
The irony here, of course, is that by opposing HIV prevention in African-American girls, the fundies are the ones who are engaged in eugenics.
Planned Parenthood in Maryland is involved in a National Institute of Child Health and Human Development clinical trial to study the risk of chlamydia and gonorrhea in children as young as 15.
ALL is opposed to studying this, because if you refuse to acknowledge a problem, it doesn’t exist.
Planned Parenthood of Houston, Texas, is one of 120 various locations where KV Pharmaceutical is conducting clinical trials of a new vaginal infection drug. The trial includes girls as young as 16.
That’s because an itchy snatch is God’s retribution for immorality. Stop subverting the will of God!
Trials on Pain Reduction
They mention eight trials. Most attempt to reduce pain during abortion. Fundies are opposed to that, because if you choose to be a slutty harlot, it damn well better hurt!
Another trial on the use of lidocaine to reduce pain began in 2007. This one was directed at the pain subjects experience during and after Essure transcervical tubal sterilization.
You may think there is nothing wrong with that. No fetuses are harmed. Ah, but sterilization is worse than abortion! Sterilization is pre-abortion! That’s like pre-meditated murder, the worst kind!
In addition to those two trials mentioned above, there are other anti-AIDS activities that ALL wants to stop.
Planned Parenthood of El Paso, Texas, was… Conducting a trial sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals to give the investigational drug Tipranavir for HIV-infected adult patients with no other treatment options.
Because if you have no other options, then maybe you’ll finally accept Jesus as your lord and savior.
[A] trial sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to teach HIV prevention techniques to Hispanic men.
Scratch that Jesus business. I’m wondering if ALL just likes to watch people die of AIDS.
Planned Parenthood of New York City is participating in a trial sponsored by the New York Academy of Medicine to determine what programmatic approaches effectively address two of the most difficult hurdles in HIV health services delivery: (1) getting people who would benefit from health care to use it and (2) getting people who do use health care to do so more consistently and effectively.
Yup. They definitely like to watch people die of AIDS.
