Kalley Yanta Speaks Candidly to Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood

March 28, 2012

Embracing Life

The president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, asked women to speak out about access to the new women’s birth control benefit. Former news anchor, Kalley King Yanta, answers Ms. Richards’ invitation by letting her voice be heard via You Tube–and boy, does Kalley speak the Truth!

In the video, she explains that the pill does not allow a female to embrace life because of the side effects it has on the lining of the uterus (see second video below). Kalley is very honest about what birth control did to her during what she calls her “Prodigal Daughter Years”–a time when she made unhealthy choices. She bravely states, “It enabled and prolonged my promiscuous lifestyle…until I finally woke up and learned the truth about how the pill works.”

I agree with the comment made by sulu80:

“BRAVO!!! Thank you for your candor and your courage to stand up against the most evil “health care” institution in the world! Thank you for finding your voice and shooting straight from the hip. We need to also pray for the women Cecile Richards exploits. God bless you!”

Another viewer has a good point:

“She is trying to alert women to a medical fact: the pill causes intrauterine death of the conceived child. Most women do not realize this. It is not a religious belief, it is a scientific medical fact that you don’t want to deal with.”

Unfortunately, not all of the comments are positive, however (and the ones I list below were the “clean” ones):

“Kalley smells like a shitty diaper.” (By jongalbreath) and, “Stay out of my lady parts.” (Unknown)

Which brings me to the following reply with which I must agree:

“Man, it saddens me to see the vile comments made here, presumably by those who wave the flag of tolerance continuously. Whatever happened to civility?”

And lastly, ignatius814 stated:

“This is fantastic! Cecile, I’m still waiting for you to post your reply here.”

About Kathy Schneeman

After graduating from The College of St. Thomas, I taught at Nativity in St. Paul until our oldest was just about born in the classroom (What a great lesson on life that would have been for my students!) I then became a stay-at-home-mom while teaching religious education classes and working very part time at UST. Recently, I served as the Archdiocese's Life Coordinator in the Office for Marriage, Family and Life until twins arrived (I was almost 43!) When I have a few minutes of quiet time, I like to run, eat chocolates, scones and Mexican food (that's why I run), read, and have a beverage with my husband at night. We have a whopping nine kids (yes...same husband and same wife; we get that question a lot!) and we attend St. Joseph's in West St. Paul--where we first met when we were in grade school.

      Kalley, I have tremendous respect for you, but as a fellow Benilde St. Margarets alumni who had many classmates who came out as gay, as well as my own brother, another distinguished BSM alum, this issue isn’t as simple or clear cut as you suggest. We run the risk of hurting good Catholic families with gay and lesbian children and siblings as well as BSM alumni with imposition of this amendment with no healing for my family and classmates. Where is the healing to the hurt your amendment will cause? I tried to contact you personally re this issue but had no way of doing so.

      Hateful spiteful liar. Thats what you are. She is not noble. She BLAMES birth control for her bad decisions. That is decepive and ignorant. SHE MADE DECISIONS THAT HAD LITTLE TO DO WITH ANYTHING BUT FURTHERING HERSELF IN HER CAREER. Birth control does more for women than preventing pregnancies. And Planned Parenthood isn’t run by Satan, as Kalley believes. This woman is hiding her own bad decisions behind something that helps women & families every day. Its disgusting.

        Suzannah, you are very angry which is evident in the words you used such as: hateful, spiteful and liar. Kalley and her husband have done an awfully lot for the church, for which I am truly grateful. She speaks from the heart; sharing from past mistakes (Don’t we all make mistakes?) and this takes great courage because people cast stones. May I recommend you read (if you haven’t already) Theology of the Body (In which JPII beautifully explores the larger interplay among sexuality, life and what it means to be human) and Humane Vitae (Pope Paul VI’s short encyclical letter concerning human life). Both of these works are lovely Catholic treasures that answer the questions many of us ask. The positive voice in which they were written helps us, in a joyful way, to embrace life.
