Planning Not to be Parents?
Planned Parenthood puts itself forward as a defender of women’s rights, when in fact it is a facilitator of statutory rape, sexual child abuse, incest, prostitution, and domestic violence. Its educational activities and philosophy of absolute sexual liberation contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and infertility. Women who avail themselves of its services as adolescents and young adults may find that parenthood is something you can’t plan on.
If you don’t believe me, read Unprotected: A campus psychiatrist reveals how political correctness in her profession endangers every student by Dr. Miriam Grossman, a psychiatrist working at UCLA. Dr. Grossman writes of how young women come to her with sexually transmitted diseases, post abortion trauma, and depression. Young women, who have been sold the PP philosophy, discover later that they can’t become pregnant when they want to. They didn’t know that what PP was planning was a reduction in the number of women who could become parents.
In the battle over its funding, Planned Parenthood has tried to divert attention away from its profitable abortion business, to the other health care services it offers. It claimed – a claim subsequently exposed as false – that it provides mammograms. It does perform breast exams which may leave women with a false sense of security since these can’t detect early cancer.
PP also performs screenings for cervical cancer. It is a case of causing the problem and then providing the solution. Cervical cancer is caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) and women get HPV from sexual intercourse. When PP gives teenagers or young women contraceptives and sends them out to engage in sexual relations, it is almost certain they will be back with HPV or some other STD. PP insists that they encourage clients to use condoms along with their oral contraceptives, but condoms provide virtually no protection against HPV.
PP tests and treats STDs, but for many women the treatment may be too late, because infection with chlamydia or other STDs may have already destroyed their ability to have children later in life.
Abortion is PP business. Women looking for good advice on preventing disease would be better served by general health care providers. Abby Johnson, former director of PP in Texas and now prolife, explained how PP fudges the numbers: “Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortions make up just 3 percent of its services is also a gimmick. That number is actually closer to 12 percent, but strategically skewed by unbundling family planning services so that each patient shows anywhere from five to 20 “visits” per appointment (i.e., 12 packs of birth control equals 12 visits) and doing the opposite with abortion visits, bundling them together so that each appointment equals one visit.”
PP claims providing contraceptives prevents abortion, but its own research shows that 43% of women having an abortion are repeaters. Whatever they are recommending, isn’t working.
But the worst crimes against women committed by PP are the instances in which its staff fails to protect vulnerable women. Young women have reported being forced into abortions by their boyfriends, parents, and abusers. In order to document the callousness and illegal activities of the PP staff, pro-lifer have made calls and visits to PP facilities.
A woman called PP pretending to be 13 and pregnant by her 22 year old boyfriend – a clear instance of statutory rape. The receptionist told her how to cover up the statutory rape when she came in for the abortion.(http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/tapes-show-hundreds-of-planned-parenthood-naf-clinics-covering-up-sex-abuse?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=69776c1f35-LifeSiteNews_com_US_Headlines04_13_2011&utm_medium=email)
In a recent case, a man posing as a pimp came to discuss abortions for pregnant underage prostitutes and secretly filmed PP staff telling him there would be no problem.
Pro-lifers are disappointed that Speaker Boehner couldn’t get PP defunded, but President Obama said he would shut down the government rather than sign any bill that didn’t include funding for PP. Boehner did the next best thing; he forced Sen. Harry Reid to hold a vote on PP funding. This will put the pro-PP politicians on the record.
Then it is up to us to let everyone know that PP does more than kill unborn babies, it is a facilitator of the abuse of women.
