Some of you have written to tell me that you believe Planned Parenthood shouldn’t carry out abortions, but it needs to be supported because it provides vital health services to women. Some people feel Planned Parenthood’s presence is needed in low-income communities to provide underserved women access to basic healthcare.
However, the truth is that Planned Parenthood provides less than 2% of manual breast exams, less than 1% of pap smear tests, and zero mammograms annually. And Planned Parenthood’s prenatal care services are virtually nonexistent.
In fact, Planned Parenthood doesn’t even see women for routine health concerns like the flu, colds, minor injuries, or mental health issues. Planned Parenthood exists to provide abortions. Period. They hide behind the guise of helping women and providing healthcare while brutally destroying life.
There are many gray areas in life, but Planned Parenthood is not one of them. Planned Parenthood kills more than 320,000 children a year in the United States. So there is no moral justification for the organization to exist, much less receive taxpayer funding.
Consider the following…
- Planned Parenthood kills hundreds of thousands of innocent people a year.
Last year, Planned Parenthood reported that it killed 321,384 preborn children. Planned Parenthood kills nearly 900 children a day. It kills more than 36 children every single hour.We shudder at the evil and devastation of historical genocides. Well, Planned Parenthood is carrying out a modern-day genocide in our communities, and we should be opposing them as fiercely as any other genocidal power. Click To Tweet
Would we accept Planned Parenthood’s presence in our neighborhoods if they were going into schools and randomly shooting 900 elementary students each day?
No. Even if they vowed to stop killing our schoolchildren, we would drive them out of our communities.
We would dismantle them. We would demand immediate justice and that all those involved be arrested and prosecuted the fullest extent of the law.
So, I ask you, what is the difference between our school-age children and preborn children?
The correct answer is nothing – they are all priceless human beings who have every right to live. They have every right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; but they are denied those rights every single day. And we are funding the organization that is taking away their rights.
Americans who lamely assert that Planned Parenthood does enough good to outweigh the bad are complicit with the discrimination that says preborn children are worth less than the rest of us.
- Planned Parenthood has sold the body parts of aborted babies on the black market.
In 2015, The Center for Medical Progress released a series of videos proving that Planned Parenthood was deeply involved in the sale of aborted children’s body parts. I’m stunned by how many times I’ve talked with people who now believe these videos were proven to be falsified. In fact, the opposite is true – a third-party forensics company verified that the videos are authentic and show no evidence of tampering or manipulation.
The preponderance of evidence is overwhelming – Planned Parenthood perpetuates a culture of death. Which brings me to my next point…
- Abortion is Planned Parenthood’s primary business – the rest is just marketing fluff. And their work is driven by a genocidal goal.
Margaret Sanger, a deranged eugenicist, started Planned Parenthood. And it continues to carry out her discriminatory agenda, specifically targeting minorities for abortion. Maafa 21 has produced the most comprehensive documentaries about Planned Parenthood’s racist roots, and you can watch them here for free.
What about the claim that abortion is only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s business? Check out Live Action’s great explanation of that rather creative accounting.
If you need further evidence that Planned Parenthood’s primary goal is abortion, look no further than their response to President Trump’s offer to continue providing them with hundreds of millions of dollars if they will just stop aborting our children.
That leads me to my fourth and final point.
- There is no moral, social, cultural, or health reason for Planned Parenthood to exist.
Women’s health care centers that don’t provide abortions far outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics. According to the National Association of Community Health Centers, there are 11,056 clinics nationwide providing health services to women – none of which provide abortions. Now compare that number to Planned Parenthood’s 2017 report, which says they have 600 clinics nationwide.
Did you know abortion has killed almost 61 million Americans since 1973? It is the leading cause of death in America, and Planned Parenthood is the leading killer. They are masterful marketers and an extraordinarily powerful lobbying organization.
Planned Parenthood has a carefully crafted a message of women’s healthcare that belies its true nature – to promote and advance abortion.
We cannot placate and play with evil. We must conquer it.
Finally, remember that it is Christlike to vocally oppose Planned Parenthood’s injustice. God made His views on killing innocents clear in Scripture, and we practice our faith when we uphold those values.
We should pray for the entire Planned Parenthood staff. And we will continue to be nonviolent, candid, and compassionate in our work and dialogue.
But we should never be lukewarm in the face of evil.
As the death toll at Planned Parenthood continues to rise, I ask you to join me in helping to defund Planned Parenthood and put an end to the brutality of abortion.
