I am disgusted. It is no secret that I do not believe in abortion. I understand there are those that think differently, including friends of mine. I still love and respect them and I am always available and willing to have a civil discussion on the topic with anyone. What disgusts me is this. The number one abortion center in America (Planned Parenthood), which does between 30% – 40% of all Abortions each year, promotes lies. On their own website this is what they say about women who may be thinking about an abortion.
“Serious, long-term emotional problems after abortion are about as uncommon as they are after giving birth. They are more likely to happen for certain reasons-for instance, if a woman has a history of emotional problems before the abortion. Ultimately, most women feel relief after an abortion.”
Basically they are telling women that unless you had a history of emotional problems prior to being pregnant you will probably have no emotional issues after..and you will be relieved. Consider this, Planned Parenthood performed over 325,000 Abortions last year (or about 37 per hour, 1 every 95 seconds…) I live in Denton TX with a Population of 123,000. Planned Parenthood helped end the lives of 2.5 times the population of my city in one year. I do not have to be a woman to know that the statements from Planned Parenthood are lies. Most women who have had abortions, regardless of their thoughts on the morality of them, will have emotions regarding them…many will never forget, nor will they ever stop wondering what if…What if that baby was born? What would they be like? What would they look like? What joy would that baby have brought to the world?…some will carry guilt, have depression, etc.
Another section of the Planned Parenthood website says this:
..”But parents often give up a lot for their children. Meeting a child’s needs can be very challenging. Parents deal with less sleep and less time to do the things they need and want to do. Having a baby is expensive, and many people find it hard to support their children. Having children can also put a parent’s school plans on hold. Many people find that having a child can test the strongest relationship. And if you are single parenting, you may find it more difficult to find and keep a relationship.”
Millions of tax dollars goes to this organization that promotes lies and makes it very easy for a woman who is considering an abortion to move forward. So according to Planned Parenthood an abortion will not cause any emotional issues, and will save the mother a lot of money, not inconvenience them and help them stay in or find a relationship.
If our gov’t continues to support organizations like this that promote abortions because of reasons including financial burdens on individuals and society we may as well call ourselves China…
Certainly glad Mary and Joseph didn’t think their baby was going to be a financial burden or inconvenience to them.
God Help Us!
Children are a gift of the Lord
