Planned Non-Parenthood – The Truth

Let’s be clear: Non-parenthood is Planned Parenthood’s answer to unplanned parenthood. Got it? Let’s refine that. Planned Parenthood is for neither planning nor parenting, but rather for encouraging lack of planning (in sex) and aborting parenthood (violently), even later term.

Where has this end-the-baby-as-born idea been pushed, since the Supreme Court handed authority back to the 50 States to assess how and when abortions will be performed?

While the majority of states disfavor late-term abortions, protecting the child after viability and often in the second trimester, several have taken a radical path, pushing the exact reverse.

Pushing abortion at birth – let’s not gild the lily – is killing a viable child before her first breath. Big national money pushes Democrat or divided states to do that, as they make money on it.

While no legislator that I know, Democrat or Republican, Maine to New York, would walk into a neonatal or ICU unit and proceed to suffocate, dismember, and dispose of, or sell a baby’s body parts, many have voted for a parallel process for the late-term fetus, seemingly unrepentant.

What exactly is a late-term or at-birth abortion, conducted in the third (and often second) trimester of pregnancy, authorized by states like Maine, Massachusetts, New York, DC, and a handful of others?

First, if cold comfort, only 1.3 percent of abortions occur after the 21st week, seven months, a point when kids can live outside the womb. To make it personal, I have close relatives born then, thriving.

Second, while states vary on when, how, and on what basis abortion is allowed, only one state – Virginia – prohibits third-trimester abortion. By contrast, six states and Washington DC impose no restrictions on abortion, from wanting a boy to anxiety at parenting.

Third, understanding tough facts – hard to hear – is maturity. The procedures Democrat legislatures and governors in places like Maine soft-shoe, try to cover up or politically excuse, are gruesome.

Moreover, pro-life Democrats in places like Maine are actually threatened by their own leadership to vote “yes” – against their conscience – or be primaried, and lose funding. That fact alone is revolting, a craven leadership with no integrity, ethics, morals, or respect for another’s conscience and faith.

Why? If ever there were a touchstone for integrity, a red line no party should cross, it is forcing a fellow legislator – of any party – to abandon their faith or conscience for political gain, for anything.

Taking a life is serious. When one believes abortion does that, no House or Senate leader should punish that belief – yet they did recently in Maine, and have elsewhere. That is a gut-wrenching “double fail,” as those of faith should not depart it, and those opposed should not impede it.

To be clear, this principle is not partisan; it is about integrity, having it, and honoring it.  It does not relate just to forcing a pro-life Democrat to vote for abortion under threat of harsh political retribution, as Democrats did in Maine. It is the same for capital punishment or euthanasia.

Returning to the underlying issue, late-term abortions are gruesome. People should know facts. The utero child, viable or nearly so, is literally torn apart. Neonatologists confirm the child is “conscious.” Since federal law prohibits “intact dilation and evacuation,” the living fetus is partially removed, feet first, killed graphically and removed in parts. No abortion advocate can soften it.

Using more polite and “comforting” language, in NPR cadence, some re-write the procedure to mask the reality, which may work for some but no one really interested. One pro-abortion provider says this, aiming to comfort the mother soon not to be: “You’ll likely be given intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, so you’ll probably sleep through the procedure.”

Then, as if just returning her to heaven – which in some ways is happening, horrifically – they say: “Vacuum suction and other surgical instruments will be used to extract the fetus and placenta.”

If this does not turn the stomach, one is hard-pressed to know what would. Even writing it hurts. Yet, if we ignore reality, where are we? If we pretend votes like Maine’s are antiseptic, who are we?

Bottom line: Responsible people – those elected to preserve, protect, and defend life – should be responsible, and truthful about the coercion used in places like Maine’s legislature, a total miscarriage of integrity, justice, fairness, and constitutional obligations – defying the state’s majority will.

They should also be truthful with themselves: You only lose integrity, like a child, once. Let’s talk truth, shall we? Non-parenthood is Planned Parenthood’s answer to unplanned parenthood. Planned Parenthood is for neither planning nor parenting but for late-term abortion. Anyone who votes with them or defends them is complicit in what they do. Hard to hear, but true.

Planned Parenthood, a multibillion dollar corporation, gets anywhere from $500-750M of taxpayer’s money then turns around and donates millions to mostly Democrat local and national candidates. It’s always about money.

RBC, another great article. Since every baby is a gift from the FATHER in HEAVEN, abortion by man is MURDER of LIFE. Those who commit to known abortion will have judgement served at the FINAL THRONE APPEARANCE before the FATHER. One may believe that their body is theirs to control but MURDER IS STILL MURDER. REPENT!

Those of us who actually learned and remember history should never be silent about the history of Planned Parenthood and its patroness, Margaret Sanger. She was a vocal supporter of eugenics. These are just a few quotes attributed to her: “There is a need to prevent unfit individuals from having children.” “A sickly race is a weak race.” “How are we to breed a race of thorough breds unless we follow the same plan.”

Reading some of the comments to various articles on the Amac website I find it hard to believe that such moronic blather comes from genuine Amac members.I suggest that in order to have a comment appear on the Amac website the person submitting the comment provide their Amac membership number.

This is a gender inequality issue, pure and simple! A man can commit murder or accidentally kill a woman in most states, if the woman is pregnant, the offender earns two counts of murder, to the woman and to the unborn child.Why then is it that the same woman could go to a doctor/clinic and purposely have the unborn child sucked out of her and no charges are filed?Maybe you A-holes guys should be real men and start taking these women to civil court until county state and federal prosecutors have the guts to go after killers!

I <3 Planned Parenthood: It took me 7 years to get to pregnant; with lots of interventions; none worked. When I finally got pregnant (yeah) at least I thought after 7 pregnancy tests over the weekend, My OBGN said I will see in 2 weeks- that was not good enough for me, I wanted to be certain that I was indeed pregnant right damm now. I went to Planned Parenthood, scheduled on Mon saw on Mon. I took my blood test, told them my story every one of the workers came and hugged me, and told me how excited they were for me! I cried! They were wonderful!!

I’ve waited for the overturning of Roe v. Wade in 1973, but in terms of saving human lives, where did it get us? Let’s face it, not anywhere, not ANYWHERE near where we wanted to be. We can write all the angry comments here that we want about people who perform or have abortions, but so far, what the elimination of Roe v. Wade has mostly gotten us better organized and better funded pro-abort movement. Oh, and it’s also diminished the gains we were making in turning public opinion against abortion.
So I’ve come to think that what God wants is us not to focus so much against the symptoms of godliness and instead focus more on helping people to believe in Him and follow his Word. The early apostles didn’t mainly preach against the horrors of those times – and there were many – they mainly focused on bringing people to the Lord. In a sense, it’s almost like we pro-lifers have made a false god out of politics and what it can accomplish. And politics is going to fail and fail and fail us again and again.

As goes the SOBs who call abortion health care. Keep in mind that I think abortions may be necessary. The pill and uterine implants can be called health care.
