Whose life does Texas Right To Life advocate for?

Whose life does Texas Right To Life advocate for?

Their stated mission is “to educate and inform the public about abortion” and “other issues involving human life” and “promote legal protection of human life” however after an examination of the revenues & expenses of Texas Right To Life Committee I pondered the question:

Exactly whose life does Texas Right To Life promote legal protection of?

According to their own 2013 IRS Form 990 on Guidestar, the Texas Right To Life Committee Inc. spent over 44% of the committee expenses on salaries, other compensation and employee benefits:

Revenue
Contributions and grants  $      985,336.00
Investment income  $              (19.00)
Other revenue  $      225,137.00
 Total revenue  $  1,214,454.00
Expenses
Grant & similar amounts  $          2,899.00
Salaries, other compensation, employee benefits  $      469,693.00 44.39438
Professional fundraising fees  $      125,979.00 11.90727
Other expenses  $      459,430.00 43.42434
Total expenses  $  1,058,001.00

Over 11% of the committee expenses were disbursed to professional fundraisers with another 43% of the committee expenses paid to “other expenses”.

Let’s take a look at those “other expenses” shall we?

Surely we should find a healthy chunk of expenditures to help women find adoption counseling, placement & adoption services—or large donations to hospitals like Texas Children’s Hospital or entities that provide end-of-life hospice care.

Other expenses
Legal  $              2,860.00
Accounting  $              4,830.00
Other  $              4,806.00
Advertising and promotion  $              5,411.00
Office Expense  $            51,547.00
IT  $            26,821.00
Occupancy  $            42,915.00
Travel  $              6,784.00
Conferences  $              2,180.00
Depreciation, depletion & amortization  $              3,208.00
Insurance  $              3,116.00
State Legislation  $         138,631.00
Other fundraising expense  $            77,827.00
Educational expense  $            34,970.00
Non-fundraising – speci  $            16,270.00
All other expenses  $            37,974.00
Total  $         460,150.00

Nope.

So I ask again.

Exactly whose life does Texas Right To Life promote legal protection of?

    $138k for “State Legislation”? What is that?

    All that most of these groups do is make a living for their employees. I guess that is pro-life, right?

    It would only figure that a group which exists to lobby government and voters for a public position would be labor heavy on expenses.

    How you spend money says who you really are, especially if you spend all your money selfishly. Elizabeth Graham and her self created position of President of Texas Right to Life for life is a phony “pro-life” abortion profiteer like most pro contraction “pro-life” groups trying to make a well paid career out of being “Pro life” with great salaries, political office, being publicly honored as saints and heroes for “protecting Texas’ most vulnerable citizens” and having political clout which in turn generates contributions for both “pro-life” and “pro-choice” politicians running for office who in turn donate back to Elizabeth Graham and her crew for the coveted “pro-life” endorsement. But what if both Republican candidates are pro-life? Like Dewhurst and Patrick? Elizabeth plays king maker by awarding one her “pro life” endorsement, but not the other. Both “pro-lifers” CIA Dave Dewhurst and Dan the Sham Patrick supported Devon Anderson for DA after she exonerated Douglas Karpen. Elizabeth Graham, like Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45 founder Cardinal Dinardo is silent on G. Abbott’s and Devon Anderson’s Dec. 12, 2013 exoneration of Douglas Karpen by Chip Davis’ Key Man Grand Jury. After AG. Abbott orchestrated via Devon Karpen’s exoneration, Elizabeth Graham awarded Abbott her pro-life seal of approval in his run for Governor.

    The Exoneration of Karpen covered up “pro-life” Texas Governor Rick Perry’s criminal conflict of business interest in signing his sister lobbyist’s United Surgical Partner’ HB2 “out patient” mandate into law. Elizabeth Graham’s fraud Texas Right to LIfe spent most of the $ 138,000 that year lobbying for HB2, thus saving Perry’s lobbyist sister’s United Surgical Partner’s money and effort in lobbying for HB2. HB2 will be struck down by the Supreme Court, because HB2 United Surgical Partner’s out patient mandate, like “pro-life” con artist Elizabeth Graham’s Texas Right to Life sham charity is all about profiteering via the abortion industry for USP share holders and franchises.

    Karpen was exonerated for Rick Perry by Abbott and Devon to cover up not only United Surgical Partner’s share holder Perry’s criminal conflict of business interest in signing the HB2 United Surgical Partner’s outpatient mandate into law as Governor, but also that Karpen (USP outpatient franchised like Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast 1-45) sells the fresh bodies of the 5 to 9 month old bodies of babies Karpen aborts alive and whose necks he twists to kill to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45. . Karpen, like Planned Parenthood I-45 are completely free to continue their robust baby body sales relationship now and are doing so thanks to their double exoneration orchestrated by G. Abbott and Devon. And certainly indicted by Devon/Abbott, David Daleiden and Sarah Merritt who completely missed Karpen selling babies to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45 will be sold down the river by “pro-life” Republican Jared Woodhead their trusted “pro-life” attorney who recommended Devon to replace her partner in crime Michael as the “One.” as Harris County DA.

    In the end, the Center for Medical Progress’s expose, just like HB2 does grave damage to the unborn. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Because on Devon/Abbott’s double exoneration of Karpen and Planned Parenthood I-45, I can attest PP I-45 is back in business with Karpen et all processing baby parts with no fear that anyone will stop them again, and pro-life abortion profiteers like Perry, Abbott, Graham, and Devon will only reward them for the practice.

    Both Devon and Abbott say they are pro-life- but they lie. Elizabeth Graham and Christian Melchior are frauds and self proclaimed “pro life” abortion profiteers just like Devon Anderson, Rick Perry, Wendy Davis, G. Abbott, and Anise Parker. No difference in actuality. Hell has a deep place for these pro-life profiteers from the practice of abortion. They are pro-contraception even though artificial contraception causes abortions and is the number one cause according to WHO who promotes its use throughout the globe of heart attack, stroke, blood clot, cancer, and sterility for all women who take them, as well as environmental damage. The pro-life abortion profiteer public position on contraception and abortion is identical with the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, who like them, publicly supported solely contraception-natural or artificial-and not surgical abortion, which Sanger called murder. I know she advocated abortion in cases privately, but not publicly.

    Only the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Fatima, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus can and will save of us all. Not these “pro-life” modern pharisees abortion profiteers.
