What about Planned Parenthood?
Well. Do you know this about them?
"The organization's status as the country's leading provider of surgical abortions has put it in the forefront of national debate over the issue."
"Planned Parenthood has been accused by pro-life organizations of agreeing not to report cases of statutory rape to the authorities; for example, a pro-life activist, posing as a 13-year-old impregnated by her 22-year-old boyfriend, called over 800 clinics requesting an abortion. According to the recorded audio and transcripts, over 90% of the clinics agreed to her request not to report the boyfriend to the police for statutory rape."
Just want to be clear.
What about this part?
"Planned Parenthood receives almost a third of its money in government grants and contracts ($336.7 million in FY 2007)."
That is tax dollars. Your money. My money.
We pay tax dollars to an organization that performs more abortions than anyone else. Oh, and they will perform an abortion on your 13-year old daughter and you might never find out.
God help us.
It is not news to me that Planned Parenthood is a pro-choice (pro-abortion) organization. My desire to be well-informed stems from my passion for the unborn baby and defending it's right to live. To live and not be killed.
I think there are still people in this country who believe that Planned Parenthood is the local free clinic for birth control and cond&ms. A crash course in s*x education, staffed by friendly and well-meaning folks who want to give options and *choices* (my favorite word) to young women in need.
But then again, our country is notoriously good at turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to dealing with the consequences of poor choices.
If the above did not elicit some level of uncomfortableness, I sincerely hope the following does.
Regardless of where you stand in the world of politics or religious beliefs, there should be a place where human beings instinctively care for a helpless newborn life.
For goodness sakes, there are phone numbers you can call and people will rush to your home in an effort to rescue and save the life of a helpless newborn baby bird.....or a helpless newborn baby squirrel.
What about a newborn human being?
