Group Of “Cheery” Activist Grandmas Celebrates Maine Making Abortion More Accessible

(Tea Party 247) – Just when you thought you’ve seen it all. A group of radical, leftist grandmothers are lobbying on behalf of the abortion industry in Maine. The group, Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights (GRR), would apparently prefer to see fewer women becoming grandmothers by denying future grandbabies the right to life.

Activist Mommy reports:

During Maine’s summer state legislative session, legislation was passed which to compels taxpayers to spend $375,000 each year funding elective abortions for low-income mothers through the state’s Medicaid program. 

New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, and Vermont have also passed similar legislation. 

Among the more shocking supporters of this decision, however, is a group called Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights (GRR).

You read that right. A group of grandmothers is advocating for future grandbabies to be murdered in the womb.

The Maine-based group, founded in 2013, promotes abortion on college campuses and at farmers’ markets across the state, in letters to the editor, and messages to state legislators.

In a report from The Colby Echo, GRR member Elayne Richard gave the group credit for their efforts in getting the bill passed.

“Now, we’re able to have MaineCare pay for abortions; [it is] why we’re able to have other medical providers provide abortions as long as it’s in its scope of practice,” Richard said.

She then went on to say how important their presence at Maine’s State House is for those in favor of murdering babies in the womb, “For laws that are being discussed and debated that are really tough, like MaineCare covering abortion, it’s really important to our supporters there to have us there having their backs. That’s where we sit, right behind them, and that’s what gives them the strength to do what they need to do.”

The grannies give lawmakers the “strength” they need to push for more babies to be killed. What a noble pursuit.

Richard then explained why the group chose yellow as its signature color, saying, “I think it’s because it’s bold but it’s cheery at the same time.
That’s kind of a grandma, bold and cheery.” Yeah, lobbying to deny future generations the right to life is most certainly a cheery grandma thing to do.

It should come as no surprise the group has ties to Margaret Sanger and roots in eugenics ideology. Activist Mommy reports:

As we’ve previously reported, GRR founder Julia Kahrl enjoyed an affluent upbringing as the daughter of Clarence Gamble, a doctor who worked alongside Sanger. Both Sanger and Gamble were active in grassroots eugenics groups that believed that some human beings, typically the poor, the uneducated, and their unborn children, are not worthy of equal human rights.

Gamble began the Pathfinder Fund, an international group for the promotion of abortion and birth control to suppress populations in developing countries. As a result of her own work with Pathfinder, Kahrl founded GRR.

Liberals love to pretend to be so “oppressed” all while supporting the most oppressive institution known to mankind. The push for abortion isn’t about women’s healthcare, it never has been. It’s always been about population control and keeping the population of the working class and the impoverished down, with a focus on blacks and other minorities.

This is one demented group of grandmas.


  1. Grandmothers are the loving, spoiling, caring matriarchs of the family, NOT abortion advocates . I am all for a woman taking charge of their body, that means taking care starts in the bedroom NOT in the Abortion room. At the time of conception and fertilization the baby now has its OWN DNA strand and it has a GENDER , it is now a separate and distinct individual human being. If the mother decides to abort that new individual….. that is MURDER !

  2. IF one of those beings was my mother she would never have any contact with my children and very minimal with me. Actually, it would make me feel very rejected and unwanted. The only”rights” that appear to be involved is to kill or not to kill.

  3. They make a mockry of the term “grandmother”. I feel so sad for their grandchildren- a grandmother who wish they were dead. Maybe these grandmothers think only “woke” white women should have kids.

  4. If you really want to understand what is going on in our government, I urge (even beg) you to read Andrew Breibart’s book called “Righteous Indignation” or at least watch Glenn Beck’s recent video called “The Democrat Hydra” on YouTube. Glenn’s video provides factual documents and text messages obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) and not conspiracy theory. If you agree this information is correct, you can do your part like I am by spreading it around. Yes, I keep posting this in hopes to reach new readers. We need to do something, not just talk about it.

  5. If a dog was birthing puppies and a veterinarian took a scissors and punctured the base of the brain and terminated the pups as they are being born would they would be charged with animal cruelty or if this OK ? I would hate to see this happen. This happens to humans. Does anyone know the answer? If so please post. I believe in animal rights, but I believe a human should have no less a right than a dog.

  6. I would like to commend the writer of this article. How devastating it is for me to know that woman my age feel that murdering the innocent is a woman’s right. This is where their offspring (if they’ve birthed any), would have been indoctrinated to the idea that their choice is above that of the creators.


  8. these grandmas should be at taking of their house and mind their business or old folks home. abortion is murder and if women would keep their legs closed they wouldn’t have that problem. there’s enough things on the market that they shouldn’t be getting pregnant anyway but their to lazy to use them because tax payers are going to pay for the murder that they commit. these old bitties are a disgrace. if that was my grandma i would be ashamed and embraced.

  9. And HELL has made itself larger to accommodate witches like this…….how often to they bow to Molech? This is just disgusting.

  10. HMMMMM ? How can you be a grandma without grandchildren??? Bet they have some convoluted argument how this right stance. Most of the time when their “daughters” get pregnant, they are happy and not asking if they are going to abort the baby.

  11. If God did not want people to be killed in wars, He would not permit it.
    If God did not want babies to die from starvation in countries where food and water are scarce, He would not permit it.
    If God did not want babies to be aborted, He wouldn’t permit it.
    Stop telling women what to do with their bodies.
    End of discussion.

    • God did not make robots. He made people, capable of knowing Him AND making choices. Some people don’t know Him and make poor choices (they don’t know what is good or right). Our bodies do not belong to us. They are on loan from God. Which one of us had anything to say about the creation of our own life? God is the Creator, not us. We would do well to respect and honor God’s gifts to us, especially the gift of life. Life is physical and spiritual (and eternal); what we do, and don’t do, with our life will determine where we spend eternity — smoking or no smoking.

      Getting to know Jesus, the Christ, the way, truth and the life, is well worth the time and effort spent. Talk with Him. He loves you, and wants only good for you. Peace.

  12. What a delusional group! They will deprive their own “elite” daughters of their grandbabies, not just deplorables! They may never have a grandbaby to love and hold as our replacements aren’t being born. A lonely old age is the likely result!

  13. And …… Jesus …… Wept.

    abortion: — The American Genocide
    — Capital Punishment for the Innocent
    (But, what crime was committed by the developing HUMAN in
    the womb that deserves the death penalty??????????????????)
    Yes, LIFE is pre-eminent. Without it … nothing matters or has value, unless of course you are planned parenthood who makes money from butchering babies and selling their organs and tissues.

    Pray for those who live in the darkness of ignorance and error. God help them.

    • T.V. They are ruled by the prince of darkness. Ever read the book “This Present Darkness”…..we are seeing it played out.

  14. Maybe they all just wanted to get out of babysitting? Perhaps their children still live at home and think good old mom can still take care of a baby? Not good, valid reasons, but perhaps it validates a past, personal experience? As a 77 year old grandmother, and In all honesty, I can’t think of any reason for wishing for more abortions, especially one that would eliminate a grandchild from being.

  15. I often wonder why these people who want and are activists for abortions don’t follow their own beliefs and abort themselves. It is always someone else who has to die. They forget the only reason they are here is because their own mother didn’t have an abortion, to bad. The sad thing is, for those who believe in God, know that for they,people who have had an abortion, those who advocate for abortion and those who preform abortions are going to some day stand before god to be judged for these actions.

  16. It’s too bad they can’t be more concerned about preventing pregnancy and STD’s, rather than glorifying the killing of fetuses (babies) as “health care”.

  17. Evil in the heart knows no Christian or moral ethics and are not bound by any human and merciful consideration for the lives of others. Evil simply hide it’s face in many facets and change to suit it’s convenience and intent. Grandmom’s ??? Not in the true essence of the word or concept as normal God fearing people know it. The true faces show themselves in these so called women of a ashen heart. Let them be shown the same mercy and benevolence they wish upon others when the circle of Karma calls their name.

  18. This makes me sick. Will common sense and decensy ever prevail again? I think of my grandmothers and how decent they were. They never would have supported this kind of garbage.

  19. Young people are disgusting but these grandmothers are sickening. A bunch of old hippies who probably screwed their way through live until.some man with no pride marry them. Stains on humanity.

  20. I find myself in agreement with all preceding comments, but I would like to add one more thought. Whether during pregnancy or during hostile military action, only GOD decides who lives and who dies (or so I’m told)!

    • God allows us to have free will. He doesn’t decide, but he knows everything. He cries for all who ignore him and who hurt others. He would like all of His creatures to be with him in Heaven. We are the ones who decide what we want to do. It would be nice if it would be acts of love and to follow the Ten Commandments. Take care!

  21. I am abhorred that these grandmas do not want another generation of grandchildren. God knows these babies are in the mother’s womb and He gives them life. .
