Wising Up to the Tactics of Planned Parenthood

Posted By on April 3, 2010

There have been quite a number of stories in the press over the past year about the health risks of chemical birth control, lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies that have pushed risky pills, and Planned Parenthood clinics that have used pornography to help raise funds for sex education and have even recruited underage girls to conduct clinical trials of “emergency” contraception. But you had to look hard to find these stories in a major news magazine or newspaper. For the most part, the mainstream media ignored or sidelined these reports. You’d think if feminism was really concerned with the health and well-being of women that these stories would be front-page news with bold headlines. Thankfully, a growing number of writers are becoming more vocal and are pointing out this hypocrisy. Below is a list of links to articles, commentaries, and a video on topics that relate to child-bearing, women’s health, and the long-term effects of the pro-abortion, pro-birth control message. Because this is mature subject material, it is not recommended for young readers. But moms and dads should definitely be talking with their children about the gift of sexuality, the beauty of purity, and the long-term health benefits (both physical and mental) of cherishing sex and treating it as a sacred center of a devoted marriage relationship.

And, finally, an eye-opening look at Planned Parenthood’s radical shift from the days when it admitted abortion “kills the life of a baby after it has begun.” Check out Planned Parenthood 1952: Abortion ‘Kills the Life of a Baby,’ Danger to Mother. Where’s this honesty today? Simply put, it has been sacrificed on the altar of multi-million-dollar profits.

  1. Someone just sent me a related article on this blog
    http://cindycolley.blogspot.com/2010/03/no-more-thin-mints.html –warning: although it is written by a preacher’s wife, it contains material not suitable for the very young. At first, it seems like something r-rated and then you discover it was written by planned parenthood! This is shocking and their deeds should be exposed. We should not keep quiet about these things: women of the past were watchers of society and held it in check by making sure it was clean and safe. I think we can still do that today.

    I went to the youtube post and found the link to the IPPF’s manifesto. I read through most of it just now and it’s incredibly disturbing. There are some truly horrifying ideas in there. One phrase in particular kept leaping out at me. So many rights and ideas were “with due regard to the evolving capacity of children.” They never really clarify that, but it seemed to be they would like children to become sexually active progressively younger.
    And this one really caught my eye: “All persons, particularly women, have the right to expressions of identity or personhood through speech, deportment, dress, bodily characteristics, choice of name, and other means without restriction.” I took it to mean women (why should it specify mention women?) have the right to be as immodest, loose, profane and immoral as anybody else, without being judged. I think everyone should read this, and know what kind of twisted worldview the IPPF would like to force on us and our children.

    Some of that is pretty tough reading, but I thank you for sharing this important material. I plan on reading through some of these articles with my 19yo daughter… and discussing them point by point.

    Apparently you have removed my comments. The fact that issues concerning the well being of women can’t be discussed by Christians who have disagreements saddens me. As much as I’d love a community of women with whom to discuss issues of real concern to all of us, I’m thinking this will not be such a forum. Like so many Christian circles, it will be a place where the opinions of a few are kept from real critique and challenge, difference is quashed, and fragile egos are built up by judging and excluding those who fail to meet unrealistic and ultimately non-Christ driven ideals. (Seriously, Jesus is not for or against Regency fashions, Jane Austen, and floral prints. These things aren’t so much “feminine” as they are Western European, just like so many of the supposed ideals of femininity you represent as normative. ) It’s really too bad that such passionate and articulate women are afraid of those who differ from them in good faith.

  5. Actually, none of your comments were removed. They are still in place on the original thread where you posted — http://www.ladiesagainstfeminism.com/?p=574. 🙂 No one here is afraid of critique or challenge, as has been demonstrated by my willingness to post your comments and respond to them. However, you need to be willing to take the time to read through the archives (eight years worth of articles) before jumping to conclusions like the ones you have posted here. There are no “fragile egos,” and no one here is saying that femininity is all about Jane Austen or “floral prints.” Please take the time to read the “Start Here” article and our FAQs. And understand that the women who contribute to LAF come from various backgrounds and are all busy with real life — husbands, children, home businesses, homeschooling, and more. LAF is not a full-time job for any of us, so comments cannot always be posted or responded to within hours (sometimes even days!). You would wish others to extend this courtesy to you, so please be willing to extend it to those with whom you disagree.

    I apologize for reading the wrong post and not seeing our conversation and for making an assumption based on what I’ve seen on other websites of this genre where challenging posts are removed.
