But don't worry folks, they aren't really an organization dedication to abortion. From the Susan B. Anthony list:
The horrific, anti-Life remarks from Planned Parenthood directors were on full display as they celebrated the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. In an interview earlier this week, Angie Murie, executive director of Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region in Canada, was asked about sex-selection abortions. She said:
“I wrestle with gender-based abortion more than any other reason [for having an abortion]...From a macro perspective, I don’t think it is a good idea for us to be eliminating women. But if you look at it at the individual level, which is what we do, I don’t have any right to say that one person’s reason is better or worse than another’s.”
Not only is Murie's comment disturbing and immoral, but it is also pretty ironic. Whenever Planned Parenthood is threatened with funding cuts from private organizations or Congress, the executives who work there are the liberals who defend the organization take to the streets and the media to proclaim, "They're putting women's health in jeopardy!" It's almost as if they don't realize abortion affects unborn females in the womb, as fifty percent of abortions are of female babies. They'll scream women's rights all day long, while they disregard the rights of an unborn child, male or female. These are also the same liberals who claim to fight against gender discrimination in the work place, but apparently it is perfectly fine to discriminate inside the womb.
It is clear Planned Parenthood not only supports abortion because a "mistake was made," or because "the mother has the right to choose what she does with her body," but also supports abortions based on whether the mother wants a male or female child.
