One of the most controversial issues in the United States is abortion. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider of abortion and this is a part of the abortion discussion.
Some praise Planned Parenthood as being heroic in defending women’s health. Yet many are unaware of Planned Parenthood’s dark past and secrets. Perhaps if the people were informed on the evil within this organization they would be skeptical to give over 500 million in federal taxes to Planned Parenthood. The myth that abortion is only 3% of services is terribly misleading.
Before we get into its history, it is important to realize the nature of Planned Parenthood’s funding. Pro-lifers must pay millions to prop up an organization that goes against their own values and morality. Stance on abortion aside, it adds insult to injury to make people fund the largest abortion provider in America while they oppose it.
Origins of Planned Parenthood
“I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan… I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.”
If someone today were to state that they spoke with the Ku Klux Klan, their career would be over, and rightfully so.
Who was the person from this quote? Margaret Sanger-the founder of Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist and believed in creating a “better race” using birth control and abortions. She was extremely racist and wanted to reduce minority populations (this is why the KKK took an interest in her).
She uses words such as “fit” and “unfit” and how she wanted a “cleaner race”. In a speech from 1921, she stated how certain “diseased” people should procreate.
“The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped’.
This quote sounds like something that would come from a Nazi rally or a Ku Klux Klan meeting. Why are people not angry about this quote? Nick Sandmann simply smirked and they called for punishment against his school and violence for him. Margret Sanger talks of eugenics and progressives “stand with Planned Parenthood.” This “logic” lacks consistent thought. Both the left and right should find this horrifying.
Furthermore, Sanger believed that people should need permission from the government to have children and that neither men nor women have the right. Stating “No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit for parenthood.” Apparently “my body my choice” does not apply when someone wants to have a child, but rather only when they want an abortion.
Again, something people of all rational ideologies and philosophies should agree on. Organ trafficking is something nobody should tolerate, nor should it be legal. But it goes on at Planned Parenthood.
At Planned Parenthood, doctors keep aborted babies alive to use for organ harvesting. One technician named Holly O’Donnell revealed that Planned Parenthood had asked her to harvest an infant’s organs. This is a blatant violation of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002, which gives infants the right to life-saving medical care. Moreover, this is not an isolated incident, Planned Parenthood does alter their procedure to harvest the organs.
News of this surfaced in 2015 and did not alter the funding of Planned Parenthood, nor did it alter the majority of the population’s opinion on it.
An undercover investigation by Live action showed that they would aid sex traffickers in giving underage girls STD tests, abortions, and birth control. Furthermore, they do not require parental consent for an underage child to get an abortion. Instead of reporting these crimes to the police, Planned Parenthood helped the sex traffickers with their “services”. The organization that claims to help women is willing to abandon them at the blink of an eye to make a profit. Ironically, progressives who claim greed is evil again turns a cheek when presented this information.
According to federal law, Planned Parenthood should receive the same punishment as the pimps involved in the crime of aiding sex trafficking. How this organization is still standing is beyond ration reasoning. This organization holds too much political power and has too much influence on politics.
Why Do People Still Support Planned Parenthood?
Trump has called for the defunding of Planned Parenthood, and with this news, the pro-abortion movement made it an issue of women’s rights and how anyone against abortion or Planned Parenthood is “anti-woman.”
Furthermore, as stated above, Planned Parenthood holds political power that influences our government. In 2018, Planned Parenthood spent 38 million on Democratic politicians and in turn they received federal funding. People accuse the NRA of doing this, but they do not. However, Planned Parenthood does this. This is the very definition of corruption, and this corruption keeps this organization alive.
Planned Parenthood has a history of eugenics. The organization murders children to harvest their organs, and then helps aid sex traffickers. They do not deserve a single cent of taxpayer dollars. Furthermore, people should be up in arms against Planned Parenthood and these actions.
