Trying to Put Lipstick on a Pig (Planned Parenthood)
Townhall ^ | 6/29/08 | Ken Connor

Posted on 06/29/2008 11:09:15 AM PDT by wagglebee

Planned Parenthood is in search of a makeover. For years, the organization has been the biggest abortionist in the business, but as abortion is losing its cachet, Planned Parenthood is trying to reinvent itself. It seems that killing children for cash is just not as fashionable as it used to be.

According to Stephanie Simon of the Wall Street Journal, Planned Parenthood wants to "[open] new avenues for boosting revenue and, they hope, political clout." The first step in the organization's redo involves marketing itself to customers in a higher income bracket. Planned Parenthood is building new centers with larger waiting areas, wooden floors, nice lighting and other amenities which create a more inviting environment and, presumably, make clients feel less shameful about the act they are contemplating. A new "green" clinic is going up in Massachusetts, made of recycled and earth-friendly materials. "Express centers" are being located in malls so that young women can have quick and easy access to birth control, tests for sexually transmitted diseases and counseling. Gift shops make the centers more appealing to their young clientele.

In its early years Planned Parenthood was directed by Margaret Sanger who advocated for a "right" for women to choose to kill their unborn children. She also promoted a Congressional plan which would, in part, "apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring."

Sanger wanted to use reproductive controls to halt the "vicious cycle" of poverty and ignorance. She argued, "There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them. Herein lies the key of civilization."

Sanger advocated "choice" as a tool for eugenics. "Only upon a free, self-determining motherhood can rest any unshakable structure of racial betterment." Yet she did not believe that this exalted idea of choice should apply to "the undeniably feeble-minded." In other words, Sanger thought the mentally handicapped should be sterilized by force, people should be sterilized to remove unwanted traits from the populace, and the country should seek racial perfection.

Planned Parenthood's modern advocacy of "choice" is rooted in Sanger's lack of regard for the rights of the unborn. Sanger saw "choice" as a means of perfecting America through the destruction of millions of unborn children. Planned Parenthood perpetuates Sanger's legacy by presenting "choice" as a means of improving the lives of individuals and communities by eliminating unwanted, "inconvenient" children. Its clinics dispose of over 200,000 such children per year. The number of abortions provided by Planned Parenthood hit an all-time high in the 2005-2006 fiscal year.

This high body count, no doubt, is part of the reason Planned Parenthood wants to change its abortion-centered public image. Nevertheless, the organization will not quit providing abortions or discourage them. Rather, it is hoping to hide its assault on human life behind nice new amenities. Apparently it believes that comfortable furniture, soft lighting and convenient locations will help people forget what goes on behind the closed doors of the surgical ward.

The new "green" Planned Parenthood building is, perhaps, the most ironic element of its remodeling plan. The organization proudly proclaims its concern for the environment even as it destroys more human beings than any other group in America. Planned Parenthood is the most infamous organization in an industry which kills more than twice as many Americans per year as cancer. By "going green," Planned Parenthood is attempting to hide its true color, red—the color of the blood produced by its daily death toll.

Worthy of note is the fact that federal and state grants make up about a third of Planned Parenthood's funding. Another third is provided by private donors. By remolding its image, the merchants of death are, no doubt, hoping to increase the share that comes from both. Branding is, after all, key to the success of any fundraising campaign.

This is one makeover, however, that just won't work. Putting lipstick on a pig doesn't make you want to kiss it. No matter how hard Planned Parenthood tries to dress it up, abortion still kills children and hurts women.

More: It [charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant [emphasis added].11

She concluded,

The most serious charge that can be brought against modern “benevolence” is that it encourages the perpetuation of defectives, delinquents and dependents. These are the most dangerous elements in the world community, the most devastating curse on human progress and expression.12

The Review printed an excerpt of an address Sanger gave in 1926. In it she said:

It now remains for the U.S. government to set a sensible example to the world by offering a bonus or yearly pension to all obviously unfit parents who allow themselves to be sterilized by harmless and scientific means. In this way the moron and the diseased would have no posterity to inherit their unhappy condition. The number of the feeble-minded would decrease and a heavy burden would be lifted from the shoulders of the fit.

Do you also agree with these quotes?

Sure do.

And so should anyone that wishes to live in the first world and not the third world.

A fetus that is allowed to become a person is going to require food, water, shelter, etc.

If that fetus can't be expected to become a person that will proportionally increase the production of the above, then maybe abortion is the right choice.

Easy energy and advances in the sciences have allowed humanity to produce a surplus in food, shelter, etc, year after year to be consumed by greater and greater numbers of people.

Do you think it can go on forever? And do you think as things get tougher, that those hungry masses are going to respect YOUR needs for energy and food, etc?

Why do Mexicans risk dying in the desert to come to the United States? Because Mexico has already moved past the point of overpopulation. There is very little surplus left. Any surplus is taken and consumed, mostly through the Democratic process.

It all comes down to productivity versus fecundity. If productivity doesn't increase proportionally with population, then what is produced must be divided into smaller and smaller pieces. Or go someplace else where they can get a bigger share of the pie.

It depends on the people, doesn't it? What sort of posibilities does Johnny Moron offer? Stupid people don't offer much. Bright people do. The Bright, and easy energy, have kept hunger at bay for large numbers of people.

Still Malthus has been proven correct -- for certain populations.

There are parts of the world where people reproduce to the point that their children routinely starve. And when those children die, they go off to make more.

And there's no surplus. No surplus for infrastructure. No surplus for thought. No surplus for anything.

Out of curiosity, two questions - what faith do you practice and who are you voting for in the Presidential race and why?

By many definitions, Atheist.

And I'm voting McCain.

The entire Democratic party seems committed to allowing the intelligent to kill their offspring while allowing the world to be filled with more mouth-breathers sucking the life from the productive.

Abortion should be illegal for any intelligent person over 18 and mandatory for any idiot with with an IQ below 90.

I asked:
I'm curious, do you support the entire eugenics movement or just the part that kills 3500 INNOCENT AMERICANS EVERY DAY?

You responded (but did not answer):
Save your emotional outrage for those moved only by their hearts and not their heads. It won't work on me.

I'm still curious, do you and your intelligentsia comrades fail to realize that I posted verifiable FACTS about the frequency of abortion?

So, I can't help but notice that it is YOU who is "moved only by your heart and not your head." Is the "sacrament" of infanticide that precious to you?

I can also conclude that your REFUSAL to answer my question is indicative of the fact that you do, in fact, support the entire eugenics agenda. After all, it is extraordinarily rare for a person who claims to be a conservative to refuse to deny support for leftism on Free Republic.

Does it escape your attention the lack of support you find for your position? This is, after all, a CONSERVATIVE, PRO-LIFE FORUM, most of your ilk left about a year ago -- some voluntarily, others a little more forcefully.

A fetus that is allowed to become a person

Despicable. Who made you God?

The very purpose of our Constitution, according to our Constitution, is to secure the Blessings of Liberty, not just to ourselves, but to our Posterity...in other words those who have not yet been born. The Founders gave the rights of those who were yet to come equal standing with their own.

And the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments protect the unlienable right to life of all Persons. That includes babies, from the point of fertilization.

Any other position has you somewhere on the slippery slope to personal and national destruction.

Ironically, I just thought of a service PP could provide, if it wasn’t so tainted, that could actually do some good.

Fortunately, it could be provided elsewhere and better by someone else.

That is, somebody, Wal-Mart maybe, providing comprehensive while-you-wait low cost STD and other communicable disease tests.

Bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and parasites.

Herpes, HPV, KSVH, HIV, hepatitis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis, chancroid, Donovanosis, non-gonococcal urethritis, staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), cytomegalovirus, molluscum, mononucleosis, giardiasis, ameobic infection, Candida albicans, toxoplasma gondii, and I’m sure there are a bunch more.

By regularly testing for all of these, whatever company could start a “cleaning” campaign to eliminate as much as possible these diseases from our population.

In turn, this would prevent endless prenatal problems and personal damage to individuals, most of whom would never know they had one or more of these problems, unwillingly spreading them to others.

Of course the inherent flaw in all of this is what to do when an intelligent woman, with an intelligent husband, gives birth to a child with low intelligence or other disabilities. The Utopian eugenicists need to insure that there are safeguards to counteract such cases.

Additionally, there must be devices in place addressing those who become disabled after birth. After all, what parent would want to be burdened with a Helen Keller when they could have a Hillary Rodham?

made the same claim, that taxpayer money was only going towards non-abortion expenses. I asked her what she would think if I were to request that she pay our utilities, mortgage, and food, and I went out and bought a new sports car. Got the point across fast.

She told my wife - I wish you didn’t hate PP so much, they do so much good in the world.
Wife - Really? Like what?

With the pending nomination of John Judas McCain, the Republican Party is finally and fully dead.

And so, since the old vehicle is obviously worn out and useless, we're building a new one. That's what free Americans do.

From now on, we'll only support candidates based on America's founding principles, and any prospective leader's record of adherence to them, NOT obviously meaningless party labels.

Our attitude? The same as our last Independent President, George Washington:

"Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God."

My understanding of history is that it is those who take this attitude who end up winning in the end, no matter the odds.

Thank God they didn't waste their lives calculating outcomes. They were too busy simply doing the right thing, and trusting in God's Providence to carry the day.
