Sarah Owens at The Federalist details her experience at
Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder Inc. five years ago:
Two years into college, I found myself late—yes, that kind of late. Now, I knew it was probably nothing, but I wasn’t sure, and I wanted to be. Like a lot of college students, I drank on weekends and if I were pregnant I didn’t want to harm the child. Again, due to embarrassment, I didn’t go to the doctor I knew. I was afraid, even at 20 years old, that a pregnancy test would somehow show up on a bill that went to my parents. If I wasn’t pregnant I didn’t want the test to ever come to light. So, again I trekked to Planned Parenthood, this one located right off campus.
I had to fill out a form. On it you check the boxes of things you are willing to consider. The options essentially broke down to a) abortion b) adoption c) parenting. I chalked it up to alphabetical order that abortion came first. At this point in life, I still solidly fell on the “I would never have an abortion, but other people should be able to” side of the fence. I checked options B and C, took the test, and was taken into a room to hear my results. Before getting those results, I was interrogated.
“Why won’t you consider abortion?” the representative asked. “You realize what a strain on your life parenting would be, don’t you?” I explained that abortion just wasn’t something I personally believed in. She scoffed at me before finally telling me I wasn’t pregnant.
I left the office and cried. Maybe it was relief, but I mostly felt hurt and manipulated. What if I had been pregnant—would she have been able to sway me? How many others have passed through those doors and were swayed to terminate, who felt the strain—financial, physical, or mental—that parenting might cause so decided it would be easier to just “fix the problem”?
Go here to read the rest. Sarah’s story helps underline the lie behind the pro-abort claim to be “pro-choice”. First, you cannot be “pro-choice” without being a pro-abort. (I would never own a slave, but I would never impose my morality on slave-holders. I would never gas a Jew but who am I to judge the Nazis? I would never kill my toddler, but that child murderer probably had her reasons.) A choice between two alternatives is only morally acceptable if both of the choices are at least morally neutral. Slaying an unborn child never is.
Second, pro-aborts fight tooth and nail against any effort to provide information to a pregnant woman that may persuade her against abortion. They are “pro-choice” only if the right choice is made: abortion.
Third, the “pro-choice” mantra is especially risible coming from
Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc.: their blood money empire is based on dead fetuses. They make no money from a woman not having an abortion.
Abby Johnson, pro-life crusader who was the director of a
Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder Inc. clinic, recalls how abortion was pushed:
“Abby,” I was told pointedly, “nonprofit is a tax status, not a business status.” I was ordered to get my priorities straight—which meant I had to get my revenue up… I sat there stunned… Since when has generating revenue been our goal? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing… The assigned budget always includes a line for client goals under abortion services and a line for client goals under family planning. When I looked at the numbers, I did a double take. I noticed that the client goals related to family planning hadn’t changed much, but the client goals under abortion services had increased significantly. My mind started racing. Something’s got to be wrong here. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Our goal at Planned Parenthood is to decrease the number of abortions by decreasing the number of unwanted pregnancies. That means family planning services—birth control. That is our stated goal. So why am I being asked, according to this budget, to increase my abortion revenue and thus my abortion client count? And so I asked the question out loud. I came away from that meeting with the clear and distinct understanding that I was to get my priorities straight, that abortion was where my priorities needed to be because that was where the revenue was. This meant that my job as the clinic director was to find a way to increase the number of abortions at my clinic.”
The last thing
Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder Inc. wants is for a woman to choose life. No profit for them from such a choice, merely life for her baby and life long love for the mom.
