The Deadly Irony of Planned Parenthood

Irony is a strange thing made all the more strange when it has deadly consequences. It is ironic that the City of New Orleans is in an uproar of late over what Councilwoman Cynthia Hedge-Morrell terms “…senseless acts of violence”(1) i.e. murders and random shootings. Ironically, Morrell was slated to speak for a soon-to-be-constructed Planned Parenthood “clinic”. I’d like to ask Ms. Morrell why an “act of violence” committed on the soon-to-be born is any less “senseless” or outrageous? A strong argument is to be made that this moral equivalency is what drives the city’s culture of violence.

Do the promoters of Planned Parenthood not know the genocidal ramblings of its very infamous founder, Margaret Sanger? In her argument for “America Needs A Code For Babies”(2) Sanger preached forced sterilization and isolation for the “feeble minded… and others found biologically unfit by authorities qualified [to] judge.”

Sanger’s macabre descendants took to the lectern on Wednesday last to promote the virtues of their endeavor with an aide to Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer making the claim that “This … facility will give women… access to the resources needed to… plan for their future. With that access, these healthy women and their families will provide the foundation needed to sustain our communities for years to come.” Irony strikes again! Palmer doesn’t explain how aborting the next generation makes anyone other than the current, self absorbed generation’s inhabitants, “sustainable”!?.

Another speaker boasted that if you want to see abortions end in Louisiana, then put a Planned Parenthood abortion center on every street corner!(3) While we’re at it it, why not just join New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s fight against sugary drinks by installing subsidized vending machines on every street corner.

And so, the irony of violent life in the City of New Orleans lurches forward, defended and promoted by citizens, government and clergy alike whom are unable to see that those who are unwilling to protect infants, the most innocent among us, give license to those who practice equal violence against the mature.

Article 8 of Sanger’s Baby Code reads

“Article 8. Feeble-minded persons, habitual congenital criminals, those afflicted with inheritable disease, and others found biologically unfit by authorities qualified judge should be sterilized or, in cases of doubt, should be so isolated as to prevent the perpetuation of their afflictions by breeding.”

3 ibid Dr. Julie Finger is quoted by NOLA.com saying.

“These legislators that are trying to block the building of the new Planned Parenthood facility, if their sole interest is to decrease abortions in Louisiana, then preventing Planned Parenthood is not the avenue to do so,” she said. “If you want to get rid of abortion in Louisiana, they should put a Planned Parenthood on every street corner.”

Planned Parenthood had an official groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday May 22nd at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Claiborne Ave near the official site of construction.

The new planned parenthood center will provide abortions and this has led many in the community to protest.

Planned Parenthood is not the abortion factory you think it is

The monster abortion factory was at it again.  Planned Parenthood, the controversial group of baby killers was trying to open their latest clinic on Claiborne avenue.

What a nightmare!   No, not Planned Parenthood but the large number of uninformed Americans that have no idea what they are talking about!

What is Planned Parenthood?   Well, I can tell you what they are not: they are not an abortion clinic.  Do they perform abortions?   Yes, like many health care facilities in the United States, Planned Parenthood does perform abortions.

Abortions account for less than 3% of all the services Planned Parenthood performs.  Less than 3%!

The real mission of Planned Parenthood is to provide health care to the poor and to the young.   75% of Planned Parenthood’s patients live below the poverty level.  25% are teens.  Over 1 million cancer screenings and over 800,000 breast exams are performed annually at Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide.

President Nixon was a major proponent of Planned Parenthood way back in the early 70′s when he said  “no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition.”  These guys are about preventative care.

Planned Parenthood is this country’s number one provider of reproductive health services, but some feel they are an abortion factory.   Informed people know otherwise.

Protests Surround Proposed Uptown Abortion Clinic

Tempers soared Uptown as passionate crowds came out to vocalize their stance on a heated topic: abortion.

It comes as Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading provider of abortions, prepares to open a 7,000 square foot facility near South Claiborne and Napoleon. Unlike the Magazine Street location, this one will provide abortions. It’ll actually become a regional abortion center drawing in women from across the Gulf Coast.

Today’s protest was organized by pro-life advocates. Children were bussed in, the Catholic Church was represented, and personal stories were shared, but those pro-choice were also vocal.

The Planned Parenthood facility on South Claiborne is expected to open in 2014.

If you’d like to sign a petition protesting the facility visit www.nolaneedspeace.com
