More Planned Parenthood Myths
Accuracy in Academia ^ | December 7, 2015 | Malcolm A. Kline

Planned Parenthood continues to lure collegians to its side but might be missing a fact or two when they sign up new supporters.

For example, despite its claims to the contrary, Planned Parenthood’s primary activity is providing abortions. Indeed, Planned Parenthood performs more abortions annually than the entire country of France, Catholic University Professor David A. Prentice pointed out at the Family Research Council on December 3, 2015.

Additionally, PP gets more than $500 million of its $1.3 billion in revenue from government funds, meaning all taxpayers support it. Dr. Prentice is a professor at the John Paul II Institute at Catholic U.

The mythology of Planned Parenthood overlaps with the disinformation that surrounds embryonic stem cell research. The latter is frequently claimed to be a means of saving lives and finding cures for seemingly incurable diseases, particularly by Planned Parenthood and its defenders when arguing against charges that the group engaged in wholesale organ harvesting.

"How many lives have been saved by embryonic stem cells?," Dr. Prentice asked rhetorically. "Zero," he answered.

For instance, "They didn't treat anyone for Diabetes 1," he said. "They treated mice and they died."

In contrast, adult stem cells, he averred, have been used widely and effectively and can be found in some surprising places, namely, umbilical chords and liposuction fat.

And they don’t perform breast exams like many have claimed. They don’t have the equipment.

It’s over.

They won, we lost.

America was given a look at the absolute horrors of what this organization engages in on a daily basis. They could see it plain as day with their own eyes.

America shrugged and asked “what else is on?”

Then a deranged drug-addled looney shot up a clinic, and now PP are the victims. They will be funded from now till the Rapture. And we are now the ones under assault.

Would not believe this could happen had I not just seen it all with my own eyes.

It would be safe to say that if we counted all the abortions in the whole world done since Roe v. Wade and add all of the babies aborted by birth control pills in the whole world, we would have a whopping total of a billion sacrificed babies.

Most of the babies being aborted are on first time mothers which means Satan has been getting the first fruits.

I think out of all the actions taken by man, God is angered because of abortion more than anything else.
