Way back when, Planned Parenthood actually told the truth about abortion.
It is hard to believe, but decades ago, Planned Parenthood admitted to its patrons that abortion was murder.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD USED TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION
What follows are three examples of Planned Parenthood admitting in their own literature the humanity of the unborn.
Back in 1952 Planned Parenthood published a pamphlet entitled “Plan Your Children: For Health and Happiness.”
Within it, it set up a question and answer section about birth control. Here is how they answered the question of whether birth control is an abortion:
“Definitely not. An abortion requires an operation. It kills the life of a baby after it has begun.”
As unbelievable as it is to learn Planned Parenthood said that, they continued their answer.
“It (abortion) is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it. Birth control merely postpones the beginning of life.”
Never would you hear Planned Parenthood speak like this today. They don’t bother to tell women the physical dangers of abortion, much less admit the baby inside is, in fact, a baby.
In 1963 Planned Parenthood published a similar pamphlet entitled “Plan Your Children.”
Within it they had a comparable short question and answer section on birth control.
They posed the same question as before, is birth control an abortion? This is how they answered it in 1963:
“Definitely not. An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile, so that when you want a child you cannot have it … Birth control merely postpones the beginning of life” (emphasis added).
Shocking words, are they not?
Wait, there’s more.
In a Planned Parenthood/World Population pamphlet entitled “ABCs of Birth Control,” they wrote this, on page 4:
“One sperm plus one egg = one baby.”
Can you imagine Planned Parenthood coming close to publishing anything resembling that today?
The reason you don’t hear Planned Parenthood tell the truth about abortion any longer is quite simple.
Back in the 1950’s and ‘60s Planned Parenthood was promoting birth control. They were not yet in the market of selling the child-killing procedure, called abortion.
Planned Parenthood eventually added abortion “services,” so they stopped telling the truth about abortion.
They can’t do that anymore. They have to lie to themselves.
As evidenced by Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood’s current president, trying to evade answering the question of when human life begins.
She ends up saying it is only upon child birth, as she defines it.
Take a listen for yourself.
Were you aware that Planned Parenthood used to tell the truth about abortion?
How do you feel about them not doing so any longer?
