Finally people are realizing that Planned Parenthood is a despicable organization that needs to disappear permanently. This is not an organization that cares about women or women’s health. This is an organization whose sole purpose is to perform as many abortions as possible on the tax-payers dime while brainwashing girls everywhere to believe that abortion on demand is a right.
Michael Norton, writing at Townhall.com, summarizes the depths of corruption permeating Planned Parenthood at every level:
“Besides learning that they cook their books to hide financial disclosures, are doing their best to convert the Girl Scouts into a Planned Parenthood Youth Camp, and support the Obama Administration’s abortion pill mandate (it means more business for them on your dime), we’ve also learned that they refuse to denounce gender-selective abortions—the practice of killing a preborn child because he is a he or she is a she.”
These are just a few of the detestable facts about Planned Parenthood for which they ought to be investigated, charged, convicted, and defunded. Unfortunately, having donated so much money to the Obama administration and now having the president in their back pocket will keep them protected – for now. (You can understand why they cringe at the thought of a pro-life candidate winning the presidency and conservative, pro-lifers overtaking the Senate.)
Norton goes on to sum up the Planned Parenthood mission statement aptly:
“For them, it’s full-blown 100 percent abortion on demand for any reason imaginable all the time, every time, or nothing at all. (Actually, the ‘nothing at all’ part is not an option.)”
That’s it. They simply want to do everything in their power to spread their culture of death, performing abortions for any reason, at any stage of development, anytime, every time. They will cover up statutory rape, sex-trafficking, skirt late-term abortion laws, ignore parental consent laws, and do anything else (legal or illegal) they can to perform an abortion. The sheer depravity of this image and business model is astounding.
When they get caught, as in the case of the undercover videos released showing their complicity in sex-trafficking and sex-selective abortion, they simply accuse the staff of acting improperly and either fire them or send them to training. I can’t help but think that they must have a lot of really awful staff members. I don’t think anyone should feel safe going to a Planned Parenthood clinic with all the poorly trained staff that don’t know the law or are willing to knowingly violate it.
Either that of these staff members are doing exactly as they are instructed then being offered up by Planned Parenthood administration as sacrificial goats to appease public outrage. You decide.
And while pro-life leaders continue to call on President Obama to rescind his pro-abortion HHS mandate, Planned Parenthood is all but giddy over the mandate because it will line their pockets with our money. Not only will it give untold millions to Planned Parenthood for abortifacients and contraception from taxpayers that oppose such items, it will ultimately help fund abortion.
So we could sit around and talk about whether or not we are better off now than we were four years ago – though many liberals don’t want to have that conversation because even they admit that we’re not. But the truth is that much more is at stake than just the economy. The lives of millions of children, the religious freedoms of a majority of Americans, the foundation of traditional marriage that has helped shaped the country are all at stake.
I’ve not lived through many presidencies – this is my 5th to be exact – but I have never seen a president so polarize and divide our country as this one. He has truly earned the title as the most pro-homosexual, pro-abortion president in U.S. history. It’s shameful, and I hope Christians, conservatives, pro-lifers, and others can rally to bring about change before we all look back and wish we had done more.
