Why Trump Is Wrong About Planned Parenthood!

I am amazed at the number of people who claim Planned Parenthood does a lot of good. Donald Trump is merely the most famous. I have to wonder have they really considered what Planned Parenthood does or the impact Planned Parenthood and its allies have upon this country. The question should be can anything outweigh the evil that Planned Parenthood has done.
Forget the fact that Planned Parenthood performs over 300,000 abortions a year. Forget those who suffer psychologically because of abortions. Forget the recent accusation of selling baby parts or their political opposition to all attempts to regulate abortion or safety standards for their clinics. Forget the fact that they are fighting a Texas law that would require their doctors to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Ignore the fact that women still die because of botched abortions.
Think instead about the message they deliver to our youth that they are too weak to control themselves; that they are incapable of self-discipline, that they can not resist the temptation to have sex. Think about the way they encourage sexual activity long before children are mature enough to handle it. Think about the fact that middle school students are having sex long before they can handle it.
Think about those who are hurt by such activity, the pain of a teenage girl who gave herself to some guy, thinking it was love and forever and instead got used and dumped. Think about the emotional harm done when this happens over and over. Think about the pressure now put on a guy to be sexually active, that they must not be normal if they aren’t sexually active.
Think about the long-term consequences of such activity, millions of young men and women who are emotionally crippled, incapable of long-term commitment, desperate to be loved by someone. Is it any wonder so many marriages fail?
Has birth control not made it easier for a person to cheat on their spouse? Has it not weakened marriages and reduced women to sexual objects rather than partners in building a family? Has it not reduced the need for commitment? Has it not contributed to the lack of communication and collaboration which cripples many marriages? Has it not been a factor in many divorces? What about the pain suffered by the children? What about their emotional damage? Are these things not important?
In an age when sexually transmitted diseases are rampant and sometimes fatal isn’t it criminal to encourage recreational sex? Is that really responsible?
What about the side effects of the medicine provided by Planned Parenthood. It struck me as ironic that while the government was pushing its contraception mandate and trying to force religious organizations to provide birth control coverage, TV networks were advertising lawsuits against the manufacturers of the Pill? What about the more than 600% increase in breast cancer since the pill became common in 1970? If Planned Parenthood really cared about their patients shouldn’t they be fighting for the government to investigate this? Shouldn’t they be investigating the link between abortion and breast cancer? Shouldn’t they be providing mammograms, cancer screenings and treatment?
They claim to be fighting for the right of a woman to choose but why do they oppose laws that would help women made a more informed choice? Shouldn’t they be for ultrasounds and waiting periods? Shouldn’t they support laws that require pre-abortion counseling?
Shouldn’t they be promoting natural family planning, a method of family planning utilizing the same scientific methods used to determine when a woman is most fertile, a method that requires communication and collaboration and strengthens marriages, a method without negative side effects? Shouldn’t they be promoting rather than ridiculing a method my public college human anatomy professor claimed way back in 1977 was as effective if not more effective as the Pill?
What about the goals of its founder Margaret Sanger who like Hitler believed in eugenics and wanted to purify American society of undesirables? What about the fact that Planned Parenthood and its allies are responsible for aborting over 40% of all African-American babies?
Sure, Planned Parenthood has played a major role in shaping this country. They and their allies have been major contributors to the weakening of marriages in this country and the breakdown of morality. Millions of women and children have been victims of their philosophy. They are among the many in this country who have promoted selfishness, contributed to the degradation of women, helped to devalue human life and helped make killing seem acceptable. They have tried to destroy or discredit clinics which truly serve the needs of women and they have ignored the emotional needs of those who have followed their culture of death. They have attacked all religious faiths that disagreed with them.
Only someone who is morally blind could call what Planned Parenthood does good or an agent of Satan.
