Planned Parenthood Golden Gate Loses National Affiliation

— Posted by John (August 18, 2010 at 10:33 am)

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America will cut ties with its San Francisco affiliate office, Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, as of September 3, apparently due to serious financial mismanagement, as its most recent documents filed with the IRS showed a loss of $2.8 million!

Planned Parenthood Golden Gate is probably best known for its infamous 2005 video “A Superhero for Choice,” featuring Dianysis, a “superhero” modeled on PPGG’s CEO Dian Harrison. The video — which PPGG pulled from its website soon after posting it — features, among other things, Dianysis drowning an abstinence educator in a garbage can and blowing up pro-life demonstrators:

Holly Patterson’s Death from RU-486

But Planned Parenthood Golden Gate’s checkered past doesn’t end there.

It was one of their branches that gave 18-year old Holly Patterson the abortion drug RU-486 on September 10, 2003. A week later, Holly was dead.

And although Harrison issued a statement saying, “We extend our deepest sympathies to the family” and “We wish them strength and support in this tragic time”, her words were, of course, vacuous: in response, Holly’s father, Monty Patterson, remarked, “They haven’t offered anything,” and noted that Planned Parenthood wouldn’t even return his phone calls.

PPGG Boasts about Covering Up Rape of 11-Year Old Girl

What’s more, in 2005, PPGG posted this testimonial on its website:

After pro-lifers launched an outcry, PPGG removed the story from its website, but it’s still accessible here.

By posting this account, Planned Parenthood Golden Gate was effectively boasting about covering up the rape of an 11-year old girl. And not just statutory rape, either — the cover-up of which has been repeatedly documented at numerous Planned Parenthood locations since then by Lila Rose and Live Action — but forcible rape.

And since the victim’s parents didn’t know, it’s also safe to assume PPGG didn’t report the rape to the police either; otherwise, her parents surely would have been notified.

Meanwhile, thanks to Planned Parenthood’s inaction, the victim’s rapist remained free.

Losing Money: The Unforgivable Sin?

It’s interesting, isn’t it, that in light of this notoriously appalling track record in recent years, Planned Parenthood Golden Gate was still allowed to keep its status as an affiliate. It took a financial scandal for the national federation to cut it off.

Along these lines, I also note that as of this writing, Planned Parenthood Golden Gate is still accepting donations through its website:

This speaks volumes.
