Planned Parenthood: What’s Your Opinion?

PI girls, I recently came across this article about Planned Parenthood, and I thought it was so important that I had to share it with you:

On Oct. 16, 1916, a small clinic seeking to provide birth control and information to men and women opened in Brooklyn, NY. It was the nation’s first birth control clinic—and it was the genesis of Planned Parenthood.

Originally known as the American Birth Control League, Planned Parenthood, the largest private abortion business in the world, celebrated its 96th anniversary on Tuesday. Planned Parenthood was founded on the belief that women should be able to plan their pregnancies. And if that means killing pre-born babies just because it’s not a good time to raise a child, Planned Parenthood is ready and willing to put an end to the “inconvenience.”

With this milestone, Planned Parenthood is essentially celebrating death. The blood of more than 6 million pre-born babies is on its hands since 1970. Planned Parenthood has used more than $6 billion taxpayer dollars to execute its deadly mission, yet this nefarious organization promotes itself as a leader in women’s health?

Paul E. Rondeau, executive director of American Life League, calls Planned Parenthood an “abortion superstore.” The moniker fits. Planned Parenthood committed 329,000 abortions in 2010. That’s 27 percent of all abortions in the United States that year.

“Today, a new study by Protect Black Life shows that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods, contributing to the dismaying statistic that black abortions are 300 percent higher per capita than whites. This is no surprise to pro-life African-American leaders, whom the mainstream media and politicians avoid whenever possible-especially in this election year,” Rondeau says.

“Margaret Sanger, a member of the American Eugenics Society, stated in her 1932 Plan for Peace that persons from ‘dysgenic groups’ should be given their choice of sterilization or confinement on a farm for the rest of their lives. She saw minorities and the poor as ‘weeds’ that needed to be controlled. Is this why Obamacare contributes another $1 billion to abortions and puts Planned Parenthood into schools? A world without Planned Parenthood? That would be a celebration.”

I agree with Rondeau. Planned Parenthood was largely exposed this year and yet funding still trickles in to the death dens. But that doesn’t mean we should quit the battle. On Wednesday, pro-life students modeled the way on campuses by wearing a red tape across their mouths in a silent protest against abortion. Thousands of others are holding Silent Sieges (prayer meetings) at courthouses and abortion clinics across the nation through Bound4LIFE chapters. Activist groups continue to organize petitions and rallies against abortion. I’m one that believes it’s making a difference. If we save even one pre-born baby from destruction, it’s making a difference.

Consider the statement from Planned Parenthood’s COO Lisa David on the organization’s 96th anniversary: “One in five women has visited a Planned Parenthood health center at some point her life for professional, nonjudgmental and confidential care. That’s why nearly three million patients rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for care every year. We’re proud of that. And despite the attacks to women’s health and efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, on this 96th anniversary, we’re here to say Planned Parenthood will continue to provide care—no matter what.”

What a prideful statement! Lord, show mercy and awaken David and other Planned Parenthood officials to the sin they are committing by murdering pre-born babies by the millions. Saints, pray for a world without Planned Parenthood, so, as Rondeau said, we can really celebrate. Until then, don’t stop praying (source: chrismanews.com).

I also saw this YouTube video of a pro-life group that responded to President Obama’s comment that if one of his daughters gets pregnant, he doesn’t want them “punished with a baby.” The full context of what he said is: 

When it comes specifically to HIV/AIDS, the most important prevention is education, which should include — which should include abstinence education and teaching the children — teaching children, you know, that sex is not something casual. But it should also include — it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at the age of 16. You know, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.”

Even given the quote’s context, I believe he still considers an unplanned baby a “punishment.”

It breaks my heart that he thinks this way. What is your view on abortion? Please share your thoughts below!

    Out of personal experience with them. Planned parenthood is all about money. They dont care about the effects it has on the women/mother. I pray th eyes shut down soon I lost a piece of me in that room one day that I can never get back. They have no care or compassion to the mother of the lost child.

    If any one you know or if you are suffering from an abortion. Please go check out GoDeeperStill .org it will help bring healing.

      Planned Parenthood is about money? Really? Because they offer FREE pamphlets on STD’s and protection (which is PROPER sex education; abstinence only sex-ed has been proven time and time again to be ineffective)

    Okay. My opinion on Planned Parenthood, and I’m sure this is unpopular. I am for it. I hate abortion, and it’s wrong, but I’m for Planned Parenthood because of the amount of wrong that happens that is frequently not any of the girl’s fault. In an abusive relationship, a woman can sometimes be abused by being forced into a pregnancy. This will lead her to become more dependent on staying with her abuser. Birth control isn’t the worst idea either to me for some girls. This is a pretty fallen, sinful world, and if we’re going to stop allowing abortions, birth control should be easier to obtain. People will continue having sex. Birth control being more available would reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies. Teens will continue to get pregnant even when Planned Parenthood isn’t around. It seems like it’s a choice between making birth control more available or teen girls having back-alley illegal abortions which frequently endanger their own lives as well as taking the life of a baby.

      I completely agree. I also think that part of the reason that abortions are as common as they are is because of the improper sex education. People need to understand that if their state only has abstinence only education, there is a reason that they have a high teen pregnancy rate

    Every time I try to wrap my head around people’s reasoning for abortion, I get sick to my stomach and want to crawl into a hermit cave and never see another human being again. When I was a little kid, my only response to the whole idea of abortion was, “Abortion is murder. Murder is illegal. So abortion can’t legal.”
    I think I was 7 or 8 when I said that. How old is our president?

    Punished with a baby! what a truly horrible thing to say! so he would rather make them happy with the fact that they don’t have to worry about a baby because daddy told them how to get rid of it? If this ever happens maybe he will see that it is not the easy way out

    They’ve ALWAYS been evil, and to boot, they’ve always misinformed women. Before sonograms were widely used (it used to be that they were only used for extreme emergencies or surgery in utero)they gave out a pamphlet that basically just showed the fetus looking like a pink blob. Any scientist in embryology or pre-med graduate at the time and now could tell that it wasn’t true, but not a huge percentage of the population were either. For those of you claiming ‘health of the mother’ Alan Guttmacher (president/founder of Guttmacher Institute, basically PP’s think tank)HIMSELF said that abortion never lengthens the life of the mother, unless it’s ectopic pregnancy, where neither mother nor child is going to live either way.

    Ever since i heard about what abortion was (i was in seventh grade, now a high school graduate) i detested it! i have been pro-life ever since then…This last August i was diagnosed with PCOS, or Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome. before 2012, i had no idea wat PCOS was. there are approximately 5 million women in the U.S. alone who have this. PCOS makes it difficult to conceive because of lack, or irregularity, of periods. So, this PCOS thing has reaffirmed my conviction that ABORTION IS WRONG, ABORTION IS DEATH!
    I have always wanted to have kids, to be a mom.. but with this, i thought it was going to be impossible for me to get pregnant…and if i do, there are health risks involved: i could have a miscarriage, or if i don’t, i could develop gest. diabetes and/or preeclampsia, i could also go into preterm labor..if i make it to full term, i could still lose my child before, during or after delivery. i am only 19 (18 when i was diagnosed). i have a long road of hardships ahead, but with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!…Just thought i would share my testimony about my opinion of abortion.

    I am pro-life, because it is a potential life form. WAY MORE than half of kids, with Down Syndrome are aborted. This is discrimination!

    I get so upset and angry to think about how many babies die each DAY because of irrisponsible people. HOW MANY graves have we filled in the name of “rights”? It’s ridiculous!!! Even noticed that every one who agrees abortion is OK is already ALIVE?! Even in case of rape, if you went through something horrible like that and THEN murdered your baby, wouldn’t that be worse? It’s just WRONG. PERIOD.

    My theory is, if you’re mature enough to have sex, you must be mature enough to have a baby. It is pretty much impossible to completey get rid of abortions, even if it is illegal. The point is just to limit it. If it is illegal or not government funded, more girls and women will think harder about the decision and lives will be saved. I would never have an abortion, even if I was a rape victim. It’s not the child’s fault you got pregnant so she doesn’t deserve the punishment.

    “punished with a baby”…what audacity. That makes me so sick. So many people trying to justify what they obviously brought on themselves. There’s always going to be problems that politicians can’t solve, and this is one of them. People in this country are so absorbed in themselves that they don’t think they should have to care about an innocent child they brought into the world.

    I think everyone has the right to live, I mean if it’s about women’s right then what rights do the unborn women get? To all those people who support abortion all I can think is “how would you feel if your mom decided you didn’t have the right to live?”

    Just saying, our tax dollars slaughter other people who are innocent as well. Look at all our wars. We kill more bystanders than we do to guerilla militia.

    It makes me so angry that pro-choice people support “a woman’s rights”. Sure women have rights, but does slaughtered fetuses scream “women’s rights”? No! It is senseless murder based on false logic. Another thing: Planned Parenthood claims to support womens’ health, but abortions can lead to physical and psychological problems on the woman along with death to the infant, including breast and ovarian cancer and depression. Ugh, these people make me sick. One last thing: Obama says: “my daughter shouldn’t be punished with a baby”. Well that baby shouldn’t be punished either. If women hate their children so much, why don’t they just allow them to be adopted instead of sucked out with a vacuum??? At least the baby will go to a home that cares!
