Successful businesses have three things in common: A well-recognized, positive public image, an unending supply of new or repeat customers, and a product customers believe they can’t live without. Without these important elements, businesses are doomed.
The business of abortion is no different. With an annual budget of $1.5 billion, Planned Parenthood has spent millions of dollars cultivating the market by targeting children with exciting, upbeat advertising campaigns which define every type of sexual exploration as something akin to eating candy and watching cartoons. But as Alliance Defending Freedom points out in its webpage, Planned Parenthood purposefully designs its advertising to target children and adolescents.
Let’s face it, humans are sexual beings. We were designed this way so that we would procreate offspring, which allows for the continuation of the human race. But Planned Parenthood exploits that biological truth and pushes children to begin thinking about sex as early as possible, way before they are old enough to understand the concepts. Without a fully developed moral compass, or a grasp of potential consequences, kids - loaded with unfettered knowledge - are likely to experiment at the earliest possible ages.
In Planned Parenthood’s eyes, having sex isn’t about committing yourself to a lasting relationship or understanding the enormous consequences of your actions. Instead, it’s about creating a casual attitude toward it and encouraging experimentation. While some might argue that children need to be taught about their bodies, 10 year-olds are usually too young to assimilate the graphic images and descriptions which Planned Parenthood exposes them to.
But that’s what is required for this nefarious organization to make a profit. Regardless of the detriment to a moral society, they must keep their constant supply of clients at peak levels. After all, if strong religious faith or abstinence entered into the equation, Planned Parenthood would soon be out of business. So the more aggressively they can promote the experimentation of sex by making it deliciously appealing, the more their services will be needed.
Consider for a moment, the vicious cycle Planned Parenthood start little kids on. Through the government sanctioned sex-education FoSE (Future of Sex Education), which Planned Parenthood helped to draft, their “age-appropriate” training begins exposing Kindergarteners to sexual exploration at age five. Continually reinforcing the myth that they are the child’s trusted ally, Planned Parenthood slowly becomes the authority in all sexual matters. In the FoSE curriculum, by 4th grade, sexual experimentation is encouraged and before long, contraceptive measures are suggested.
Since the child believes they can trust Planned Parenthood, it is the organization the child turns to for help. According to Abby Johnson, former Texas Planned Parenthood Clinic Director, Planned Parenthood clinics routinely dispense birth control pills to girls as young as 12 years, without their parent’s consent or support. Those girls then go home and try to manage the medication on their own. But here’s the tricky part.
According to the PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference) and Medscape, all oral contraceptives, from Beyaz to the Zarah, must be taken every day of the cycle, at the same time each day. If doses are missed or taken irregularly, the drug won’t work and pregnancy can (and does) occur.
Such a medication regime is a lot to ask for from an adult, let alone an adolescent, especially if she’s operating without parental reminders or a mature understanding of the ramifications – should she miss a dose. While Planned Parenthood claims they respect the child client’s privacy, what they’re really doing is creating a patient who will suddenly face an unthinkable crisis, ending in heartbreaking decisions.
But sadly, that is precisely what they’re banking on. Literally.
Grasping the underlying purpose of Planned Parenthood’s relentless campaigns and why they promote keeping parents out of the loop, goes a long way to understanding why they are so profitable. Quite simply, they need clients. To that end, they develop and harvest them for their corporate bottom line. For more information, please visit the Alliance Defending Freedom webpage.
