April 16, 2015 (STOPP.org) — Girls as young as 14 are being recruited by researchers at the University of Hawaii to see how much they will bleed if deprived of oxytocin during late-term abortions. Hemorrhage is a life-threatening consequence of late-term abortion, and oxytocin is used to make the uterus contract and control bleeding.

The lead researcher in the study is Dr. Bliss Kaneshiro, an assistant professor at the University of Hawaii. Research cited on Megyn Kelly’s website reveals that Kaneshiro and the other researchers in the project are part of a program that collaborates with Planned Parenthood in training abortionists. 

Kaneshiro, Elizabeth Micks, and Kate Whitehouse—the three researchers in the bleeding trials—are all recent or current fellows of The Kenneth J. Ryan Residency Training Program in Abortion and Family Planning. According to its website, the Ryan program indeed collaborates with Planned Parenthood in training abortionists.

Kelly goes on to explain the funding behind this abortionist-training coalition:

“The Ryan program is administered by the Bixby Center for Global and Reproductive Health at the University of California San Francisco. And the ‘money connection’ is this: The Bixby Center sponsors the family planning departments and fellowships at the two universities where the women-bleed trials are being conducted: the University of Hawaii (Kaneshiro and Whitehouse) and the University of Washington (Micks).”

A 2009 New York Times article credits the Buffett Foundation (now known as the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation) with being the sole funder of the Bixby Center. In addition to training abortionists, the Bixby Center works to counter credible research into the devastating impact of contraception and abortion on women and society. 

In 2013, the Buffett Foundation IRS form 990 showed that it gave or pledged more than $54.9 million to Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates. $178,185 of that was a direct grant or contribution to Planned Parenthood of Hawaii. The Buffett Foundation additionally pegged $330,625 for the University Clinical Education and Research Associates—a faculty practice organization at the University of Hawaii. UCERA funds research at the university. The Buffett Foundation also gave $4.3 million to the Society of Family Planning Research Fund in 2013. The Society of Family Planning is listed as a collaborator in the bleeding study at the University of Hawaii.

Planned Parenthood and the University of Hawaii are partners in another research project that targets girls and boys as young as 11 with depraved, inaccurate sex instruction. Middle school students were given gift cards as an enticement to participate, which violates the law—a fact that Representative Bob McDermott says renders all the research results “irrelevant and useless due to the financial inducements.” That project, Pono Choices, is already in some middle schools and is being fought tooth and nail by Representative McDermott and parents across the islands. The curriculum works toward normalization of homosexuality, defines the anus as a sex organ, and sets children up for sexual abuse by adult predators. STOPP is working closely with those leading the charge against Pono Choices in Hawaii.
