Is Planned Parenthood in the business of preserving life or taking life? To many of us, it’s in the business of taking lives.
Planned Parenthood, who has been receiving around $550 million a year of taxpayer money, claims that they are there for women’s health and that they help save lives, as well as offer valuable teaching to students across the country.
Yes, Planned Parenthood is involved in sex education in public schools and at many different grade levels, but what are they really teaching? I’ve spoken to some students in public schools and they tell me that the Planned Parenthood lessons they’ve been taught teach them that sex is good, something to be experimented with, including homosexual sex and that you don’t need to let your parents know about it. What they were taught is safe sex, how to use condoms, including anal condoms and where to go to get abortions or the day-after pill.
Don’t know about you, but that’s not what many parents want their kids taught, especially those in their teens when their hormones are raging and clouding their minds.
Okay, so what about women’s health? One of the main services provided by Planned Parenthood are breast exams. In May 2017, it was reported:
“The 2015-16 report shows Planned Parenthood performed 328,348 abortions, up from 323,999 the previous year. The number of abortions also outpaced the number of breast exams, 321,700, that Planned Parenthood said it performed.”
In other words, they murdered more children than the number of breast exams they performed in the same year.
Jim Sedlack, Executive Director of the American Life League told Congress:
“Every day Congress fails to act, 899 more American citizens die at a Planned Parenthood facility in the United States.”
Knowing this, you have to wonder at the mentality of Planned Parenthood’s new President – Leana Wen, who claimed that she was proud of the organization’s ‘life-saving work’. Upon her appointment, she stated:
“For more than 100 years, no organization has done more for women’s health than Planned Parenthood, and I’m truly honored to be named its president.”
“As a patient, I depended on Planned Parenthood for medical care at various times in my own life, and as a public health leader, I have seen firsthand the lifesaving work it does for our most vulnerable communities. As a doctor, I will ensure we continue to provide high-quality health care, including the full range of reproductive care, and will fight with everything I have to protect the access of millions of patients who rely on Planned Parenthood.”
So, are the over 300,000 murdered babies considered acceptable collateral for all of the other things they do?
It’s hard to find accurate data for 2016, but in 2014, there were a total of 926,240 abortions performed and it is estimate that there were at least 800,000 abortions in 2016, of which Planned Parenthood proudly claims responsibility for 328,000 or approximately 41%.
How is this saving lives?
Since many babies born prematurely can survive with the proper medical care, then it’s hypocritical to say that a baby in the womb is not human until it is born. Why is it not a baby at 7 or 8 months while in the womb, but if born and survives, it suddenly is a human?
Face it, abortion is first-degree murder of an innocent life. Unless it’s due to a medical emergency, the mother and those involved in the abortion process should all face charges of first-degree murder – the willful and intentional taking of a human life and it needs to start with those at Planned Parenthood and their warped leadership.
