Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leader in abortion, recently released their 2011-2012 report. The report shows a record of $542 million in taxpayer funding and an all-time high of 333,964 abortions. Wait; did I just say all-time high? That’s right folks, the abortion rate is sky rocketing and that’s not including all the telemed abortions, abortions caused by the pill, etc. So in reality Planned Parenthood most likely contributed to 500,000 abortions in the past fiscal year. Keep in mind that the current statistic here in the United States is 1.2 million abortions a year. That means Planned Parenthood has performed half of those!
I am sure you all have heard the argument that passing legislation such as a sonogram bill is good because it will save “some” babies and that is better than none. If this argument is valid would the abortion rates not have gone down? Let’s face reality. Incremental legislation does not save lives!
When we pass incremental legislation all it does is force the abortion industry to find more effective and cost efficient ways to perform abortions. Today we have a huge problem with telemed abortions being performed and they have proven hard to regulate. So why did Planned Parenthood begin such? It’s simple really. As a result of legislation such as a 20 week abortion ban Planned Parenthood found a more effective way to perform abortions at a cheaper, more effective, and less messy way to perform.
Finally, let’s keep in mind that all incremental legislation often has a clause that permits abortion in the cases of incest and rape. Are not these children human? Of course they are! Whenever we pass legislation that essentially says, “and then you can kill the baby,” it is not pro-life! read more
