Affirm the value and dignity of all life, born and unborn.
“… I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19
January we celebrate SOHLS – ‘Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.’ If this was sanctity of Abortion month, the News would be broadcasting the parades and celebrations that might be taking place and Planned Parenthood would be spending your tax dollars to promote it.
In response to the misconception that every child is NOT wanted, NOT cared for and Abortion will solve the problem of child abuse, hunger and homelessness. The misconception that Abortion is the cure for an unintended and unplanned pregnancy, and a pregnancy conceived through rape and incest.
Abortion is a difficult issue to talk about.
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S. has a pro abortion slogan
“Every Child a Wanted Child.”
The slogan sounds caring and was intentionally created for that. But at Planned Parenthood the numbers certainly don’t lead you to believe that they truly care about every child and or the mother.
Here are a few statistics and facts that have helped me to change my heart and mind.
Truth: Planned Parenthood is the largest Abortion provider in the United States.
Truth: Of all unintended pregnancies, 4 in 10 are aborted. There are approximately 1.21 million abortions in America each year.
Truth: We are aborting our children at a rate of 3300 every day. 54+ million since Roe vs Wade and Doe vs Bolton.
Truth: Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions last year while collecting more than half-a-billion dollars from U.S. taxpayers, according to its most recent annual report. (That means you helped pay for those abortions.)
Truth: Planned Parenthood distributed 1,590,133 “emergency contraception” kits, which can work as an abortifacient. (They are not free for everyone.)
Truth: It is legal in Colorado and 26 other states, to terminate a pregnancy up to 9 months.
Truth: “In 2012, abortions made up 93.8 percent of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5.6 percent (19,506) and 0.6 percent (2,197), respectively,” the Susan B. Anthony List noted in a fact sheet. “For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 149 abortions.” Since 1970, Planned Parenthood has performed at least 5.3 million abortions.
Truth: At least 3,225,030 of Planned Parenthood’s 10,933,765 reported services provided abortion or potentially abortion-inducing drugs to women. These business ventures generated $1.21 billion in total revenue, allowing the nation’s largest abortion provider to turn a $58.2 million profit in 2012. According to its latest annual report, it has nearly one billion dollars in net assets.[ii] Data shows that over the last nine years, Planned Parenthood has taken in over $500 million in profits. . Do you still think they are a non-profit and should continue to receive your/my tax dollars?
Truth: Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms. They are also not a significant primary care provider in general. In recent reports, Planned Parenthood acknowledges that it provided primary care only to about 19,700 of its 3 million unduplicated clients.
Truth: 92% of the children in the United States that are abused, were WANTED and or PLANNED.
Truth; “There are up to 36 couples waiting for every one baby placed for adoption. (Every child IS wanted)
Truth: One in 4 women of child-bearing age will have an abortion before she reaches the age of 45. (Some statistics state 1 in 5 as it may include women who have had more than 2 abortions. There are several states that do not report any stats on abortion, making these numbers most likely higher.)
Truth: 57% of the 14-24 year old’s are waiting to have sex.
Truth: There is NO such thing as ‘safe’ sex. (Condoms do not protect against all STD’s and slightly reduce the risks.)
Truth: 1 in 4 sexually active teens have contracted an STI/STD.
Truth: There IS support and help for mom’s/women/men, who would like the opportunity to have their children. Support with clothing, baby items, finances, housing, school ( College grants) There is emotional support & parenting classes, relationship classes and help for men and women all at NO COST. There are Real health providers to help that do not have an agenda or abortion quota to fill.
“It is time for all taxpayer funding to be removed from Planned Parenthood.”

Margaret Sanger (Planned Parenthood founder, and still revered by PP) Just a few Quotes: In her words…
1. The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. 2. Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race. 3. A woman’s duty: To look the whole world in the face with a go-to-hell look in the eyes… to speak and act in defiance of convention. 4. [We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring. 5. “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world – that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin – that people can – can commit.” 6. A woman’s physical satisfaction is more important than any marriage vow.
This is NOT a matter of Choice….We all have free will and a choice. Sharing truth often does not make one the ‘most popular’ with the world. But I would rather share and educate the world and have them hate me than keep quiet and have a mom make a choice that takes a life and negatively impacts her heart and health and the lives around her. She still has a choice and I will love her no matter her choice, but I will educate and encourage her to know the truth before, during and after her choice is made. To address those who say then you take care of all these ‘UNWANTED’ children. We are! Christians are adopting children at a higher rate and are ‘waiting’ for children that will ‘never’ given the opportunity to be born.
Did you know…That your risk of breast cancer increases by 50-60% if you abort a child before your 19th birthday. Your risks go to 100% if there is a history of breast cancer in your family. Did you know that your risks of sterility & ectopic pregnancies also increase with abortion. I know there are many in Planned Parenthood who are as passionate about supplying abortions to the millions of women as I am about educating men and women in knowing how valued, valuable and loved they are by an amazing God and that waiting to have sex will at least eliminate some of the risks of premarital sex and the consequences of making a choice that will impact your life and the life of your child. “You have the rest of your life to have sex” YES people are waiting! I know there is No easy choice here, But from those who have made both of the choice to abort and adopt, they state that if given the chance to make a different choice, they would chose life & Adoption for their children.
If I knew then what I know now, I too would have made the choice to carry my babies and choose adoption and life!
Psalm 139:13-16 “For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
