Skip to comments.Chelsea Clinton Laments: My Grandmother Did Not Have Access to Planned Parenthood

New York, NY (CFAM) From the stage at the recent Women Deliver conference, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clintons daughter Chelsea revealed that her much-admired maternal grandmother was the child of unwed teenage parents who did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.
Chelseas grandmother was born of an unintended pregnancy. And new research shows that her family is not alone in treasuring a person who if Planned Parenthood had been successful would not have been born.
Every child a wanted child is the rallying cry of family planning organizations that promote abortion as a way to achieve that goal. The New York Times Magazine recently described a study of women who were turned away from abortion clinics because their pregnancies were too far along. Researchers found that in the vast majority of cases 95% the mothers bonded with their babies. A significant percentage later denied having ever sought an abortion, despite the fact they were included in the study on that basis.
In a different long-term study, Dr. Rebecca Callahan observed a similar change in attitude among mothers with unwanted pregnancies in rural Bangladesh. Although 42% of the women initially labeled their pregnancies as unwanted, over half of them changed their views retrospectively. Over 60% of women who originally stated their intention to have no more children classified subsequent births as wanted or, at worst, mistimed. Callahan presented her findings at the 2013 meeting of the Population Association of America.
Instead of focusing on the positive finding that womens initial aversion or ambivalence about pregnancy does not mean the child will be unwanted, Callahan expressed concern that the rationalization of births as wanted distorts the true level of unintended pregnancy.
While neither study examined why the womens preliminary attitudes toward their pregnancies were negative, both were dismissive of the mothers eventual change of heart. Its psychologically in our interest to tell a positive story and move forward, Dr. Katie Watson told The New York Times Magazine. [I]ts wonderfully functional for women who have children to be glad they have them,
The fact that many wanted children result from unwanted pregnancies calls into question the very reason for organizations like Planned Parenthood and the United Nations Population Fund, whose mission statement seeks to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted.
The Guttmacher Institute, founded by Planned Parenthood, publishes articles warning of the dire consequences for unwanted children implying that they would have been better off never being born. Despite current research demonstrating that an unplanned pregnancy does not necessarily predict an unwanted child, these findings are rarely used to develop interventions to encourage expectant mothers to embrace their unplanned offspring or consider placing them for adoption.

Experts have observed a tendency among researchers to make these recommendations reflective of the priorities of their organizations. The ongoing study by an abortion advocacy group examining women turned away from abortion tends to downplay the findings that characterize abortion or unnecessary or harmful. Gynecologist Dr. Byron Calhoun described how medical journals routinely downplay the link between abortion and preterm birth despite the evidence contained in the articles they published.
and, lo, neither did your paternal grandmother.
WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT IN TIME, DOES IT MAKE?!
Exactally! You'd think a light bulb would go off in her head at some point. You'd think this would help her understand that if her grandmother had been aborted then so would she by the cause and effect of that abortion.
Not to bright is she.
From the daughter of the smartest woman in the world...
Finally conclusive proof that the white guilt crowd are so filled with self hate they wish they were never born. If only they didn’t want to take the rest of us with them.
So does this mean that Chelsea would rather not exist?Not necessarily. If she's this ignorant, maybe she thinks she would have been conceived anyway, but by different parents.
I(f you insist on finding something good about those times, it is an undesputable fact that Chelsea’s grandmother Eva Braun didn’t have access to reproductive services, nein, mein fuhrer!
Chelsea- you are an ugly, brainless idiot.
What I have not seen anyone post in this thread is the undue hardship Bill Clinton would have suffered if the love of his life had never been born.
The ying to his yang(I have heard that it is some yang too), why, without the little woman behind him helping him to achieve all that he has, I am concerned that Bill might have never entered politics and might never have been president.
What could he have become if not president?
All night dj at the strip club in Fayetteville
Importer/Exporter of moonshine
Used car salesman at Clancy’s auto emporium in Little Rock
Client #10 of the NY madam(Oh, he may have been that already)
Plaintiff in the largest class action paternity lawsuit in the world...
OK, I’m tapped out, anybody have any other ideas?
The fact that she would say something as stooopid, idiotic and insensitive about her grandmother who raised her while Hill was pursuing her “dreams” shows that all the money spent on her hideously expensive education was a waste.
Stupid doesn’t fall far from the biotch.
Thanks Morgana. Jokes? They write themselves, and/or are born to clowns.
You forgot the Hillary stories about wanting to join the Marines and ducking sniper fire in Bosnia.
