Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. (PP) constantly lobbies Congress for more and more federal tax dollars to continue providing health care services to women throughout America. We have heard ad nauseam from Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, that if PP did not exist millions of women would be unable to access vital health care services.
What kind of health care services are women accessing at PP? Mammograms? According to Cecile Richards and her fellow progressive Barack Hussein Obama, PP provides mammograms to countless women all over America. However, if you call any PP facility, you will find that the organization does not provide mammograms (see video below).
Richards falsely claims that unless taxpayers fund PP, millions of women will be unable to obtain “family planning” care, and those elusive mammograms. What is family planning? The term family planning is a euphemism for abortion. Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill poorly disguised as health care facilities.
When you read PP’s 2014-15 Annual Report, you will find that PP does not provide medical care. What PP provides are abortions, abortifacients, contraception, the diagnosing of sexually transmitted infections and diseases, and hormone therapy. The following is a breakdown from PP’s annual report:
- abortions – 323,999
- emergency contraception kits provided – 931,589 (morning after pill)
- unintended pregnancies averted by contraceptive services – 578,681
- pap tests performed – 271,533 (pap smears are necessary after abortions)
- HIV tests – 651,695
- STDs diagnosed – 171,882
- breast exams performed – 363,803
These numbers show that with the exception of breast exams (4.7% of services), all of the “services” PP provides are related to abortion and sexually transmitted infections and diseases. The emergency contraception kits and unintended pregnancies averted are categorized as “birth control information and services performed” and are held up in the report as items that have had a positive impact on the health of America. Evidently, PP thinks handing out the morning after pill and pamphlets are medical services. The convoluted wording and PP’s bizarre definition of health care services in its annual report are designed to conceal PP’s activities and its mission.
Cultural Marxism is the tool progressives use to transform society by altering its culture. Planned Parenthood is on the frontline making sure it does its part to promote and encourage behavior that is an affront to God, natural law, and morality. The following is PP’s mission statement:
Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. (PPFA) believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. PPFA believes that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of its organization are essential to its well-being. PPFA believes that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy. PPFA further believes that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life, strong family relationships, and population stability.
PP’s mission statement is Marxist humanism on full display.
The idea that individuals have a fundamental right to manage their fertility is code for abortion and abortifacients. The right to murder an unborn baby is not an unalienable right that flows from natural law; it is a right bestowed upon human beings by the progressive masterminds to eradicate any notion that nature and nature’s God has control over an individual’s biology. Human beings must break the shackles of natural law for self-determination and self-identity. Once the self is in control anything is possible as long as a person is willing to ignore traditional sentiments of right and wrong, good and evil.
In PP’s annual report (p. 13), you will find the following testimonial from Amanda H.:
I became pregnant in my mid-twenties, which was a wake-up call for me. My partner was abusive, and the pregnancy made me realize that I needed to escape this man. I knew I could not be tethered to him for the next 18 years, that would have devastated me.
Did you notice that Amanda became pregnant? She bears no responsibility for being pregnant, it just happened. Evidently, she was okay with her abusive partner until she “became pregnant.” Once she discovered she was pregnant, she couldn’t stand the thought of co-parenting and interacting with the child’s father. Amanda didn’t plan on getting pregnant, so she cannot be held accountable for the outcome of her sexual encounters with the big meanie; why should she suffer? However, thanks to PP Amanda was able to murder her baby and get on with her life; crisis averted.
Planned Parenthood has added to its menu of services. The organization is very proud that with funding from taxpayers it has added hormone treatment to its family planning services (p. 17) Why should God decide the gender of a person? Gender reassignment is revolutionary because it takes control away from nature and nature’s God and puts it firmly in the hands of human beings. Nature must be conquered for the self to emerge.
Planned Parenthood is allowing the sexual revolution of the sixties to continue by providing services that will allow people to avoid responsibility and accountability for their behavior. PP encourages self-determination and self-identity to allow the self to emerge fully. Progressives think the unleashing of the self will produce amoral, selfish, irrational human beings ready to submit to an all-powerful central government that will sanction their abominable behavior in exchange for their liberty.
