A research organization that works on behalf of Planned Parenthood has fired its Vice President for Domestic Research after allegations of sexual harassment.
“The Guttmacher Institute has a longstanding commitment to advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights for all,” said the Guttmacher Institute in a statement. “But within our own organization, we are confronting the reality that we have failed to protect our staff as we work toward that guiding principle. For that, we apologize. Through an internal investigation with guidance from our legal counsel, it has become clear that a member of our senior staff, Dr. Lawrence B. Finer, has engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior against a number of current and former Institute employees. We have put an end to this unacceptable behavior and are taking concrete steps to prevent it from happening again.”
Guttmacher was formerly part of Planned Parenthood.
Finer was accused of harassment on June 15 and placed immediately on leave. He was fired one week later.
“As part of our commitment to the safety and well-being of our staff, and to addressing our failure to live up to our institutional values, we will conduct an independent and thorough review of our practices and policies,” the organization said. “We will hold ourselves—and expect others to hold us—accountable to do so in this situation as well.”
According to Life Site, “Guttmacher is widely quoted in the mainstream media as an authority on a multitude of abortion and contraception stories.”
This story hits during what has been a tumultuous month for the abortion industry. On June 15, Planned Parenthood was exposed for providing abortions to girls as young as twelve, and failing to disclose signs of statutory rape to law enforcement. Six days later, Indiana Right to Life called for investigations into multiple abortion providers in the state, accusing them of failing to report abortions provided to minors, as required by law.
For supposed feminism activists, abortion groups are doing a poor job protecting young women from predators.
Sarah Palin Considering Primary Challenge to RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski
Talk about an upgrade.
Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is considering a 2022 primary challenge to liberal Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Murkowsi is currently one of two nominal Republican Senators who has declined to support a tentative Trump administration nominee for the Supreme Court. She also was the only Republican not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in 2018.
Palin addressed Murkowski’s refusal to support conservative nominees for the Supreme Court in a set of three videos she uploaded to her Instagram page on Thursday. In subtle reference to a possible primary challenge, she pointed at her house in Wasilla, Alaska, mentioning that she’d be potentially willing to move away from the community to Washington D.C.
“If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and do what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” said Palin to Murkowski in the video.
She referenced a notable campaign quip from 2008, when smug liberal pundits had mocked the vice presidential candidate for saying that she “can see Russia from her house.” (The assertion is more or less true, if not expressly literal- islands belonging to the Russian Federation can be seen from Alaska’s Diomede Islands.)
“I can see 2022 from my house!” said the former Alaska Governor, referring to the next election in which the NeverTrump Senator would be held to account in an Alaska Republican primary.
Palin has always been a staunch conservative, even to the point of falling out of the good graces of globalist liberal John McCain’s elite political network after the 2008 election. She’d doubtlessly be a very strong candidate in a 2022 senatorial campaign.
