This is the generation that will abolish abortion

Planned Parenthood and Their 3% Logic

So if a rapist claimed that only 3% of his interactions with women were rapes and the rest of the time he helps them, should we dismiss those 3%? – Planned Parenthood claims that only 3% percent of their business is abortion so we should dismiss that evil and look at all the so called good they do. – Rape is wrong 100% of the time and killing babies is wrong 100% of the time. Evil is Evil! Abolish Abortion!

    Great point! I hope you don’t mind if I pass this along to some of my friends.

    Methinks Planned Parenthood’s claim is bogus.

      Methinks saying “Methinks” does not a rational argument make.

    Look, I’m as pro-life as anyone on this website, but posts like these whose only goal is to inflame passions should, in my opinion, not be posted; that’s the domain of the other side, to make arguments based on emotion and taking arguments to an extreme (“You hate women! That’s why you want to get rid of Planned Parenthood! You’re obsessed with an absurd patriarchal notion that women’s only function is to have babies!”). If you’re a Christian pro-lifer you at least have the duty of being compassionate to people that have undergone a seriously traumatic experience such as rape. If you look at it this way – Some women who are raped choose to have an abortion, does this put them on the same moral plane as that of the rapist? You equivocate the two, and yes abortion is a great evil, but you (I think, or at least I HOPE) failed to consider a woman that has been raped AND had an abortion. I don’t think any rational, caring, compassionate…whatever…pro-life person would ever say that the woman that had the abortion is “no better” than the rapist. I actually posted something about this subject on a popular feminist website in which the rabid pro-choicers warped every single argument I made into something else, or completely ignored points altogether. Here’s that post:

    No one questions the “motives” outside of the abortion procedures. It doesn’t matter how much good Planned Parenthood does if someone believes a greater evil is being committed. Of course this is where you’d disagree, but at least present the facts as they should be presented. You soften the argument made about AA when you say “organizations *like* AA are not *always* heavily religious.” The point is there are many people that would disagree with specifically AA for that reason, just like people very strongly disagree (or hate) The Salvation Army for not wanting to “ordain sexually active gay ministers” or hire them for other “prominent” positions in the organization…whatever those might be. It doesn’t matter what TSA does because the evil of discrimination on that basis is much worse for a lot of people. Abortion may not be Planned Parenthood’s primary service, but it does bring in a sizable chunk of income for the health clinics – somewhere between 25-35% (it’s around 35% if Planned Parenthood charges for the abortion procedure… I can’t find the relevant data on whether or not they give abortions for free and just eat the cost, so I just said 25% :). It doesn’t matter if abortion is only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s “services” (especially when those services can include very small inconsequential things that no one disagrees with) if in the mind of the Lifer abortion is something akin to “murder.” Planned Parenthood is still the largest provider of abortions, still lobbies, and still cannot separate themselves from abortion, philosophically speaking – these are the real issues. It’s been my own experience that most women on the Choice side of things couldn’t give a damn about the other HALF (yes, that’s 50% – Gallup) of women that object to abortion (refer to themselves as “Pro-Life”) and probably refuse to go to Planned Parenthood for that reason. So what happens? A huge population of women aren’t served, they’re told they should have no problem with Planned Parenthood because of all of the good motives; they’re told they “don’t give a shit about anyone” and are “willfully ignorant,” when those women have absolutely no problem with the other services. The solution is easy, but one that no Pro-Choice person would ever accept – separate the abortion service from Planned Parenthood, rename the organization, be transparent about the fact that abortion (even recommendations for abortions) is completely gone, stop the sex education that has philosophical bent, then petition faith based and pro-life groups for money and support. I’m rather sure the money would pour in. Meanwhile a secondary organization would probably quickly pop up from the support of extremely wealthy donors (as is evident by the Komen, among other, fiascos) that have no problem donating money specifically for abortions. But again, the philosophy and politics behind abortion are more important than real solutions.

    I am appealing to parents to watch the enclosed video. It shows the assault Planned Parenthood has launched against children. It is sickening.

    A corporate policy that actively stalks, tempts and sets up children for sex is reprehensible. Do parents know what their doing?

    Supporting Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars promotes their ideology.

    I cannot support any decision that robs children of their innocence.

    Thank you for your consideration.
