In this chapter Abby Johnson took one last interview as a Planned Parenthood employee before she left the clinic. While Abby no longer supported the Planned Parenthood ideology, just prior to leaving her position as clinic director, she had a scheduled radio interview discussing the “anti-choice extremists” who participate in 40 Days for Life. Abby admits the lies used in the talking points to discuss the 40 Days for Life pro-life advocates, but to herself she reflected on how kind, gentle, and prayerful the sidewalk counselors and prayer warriors were who stood outside of her clinic.
A point that is made in this chapter is that the Planned Parenthood talking points, used to train its volunteers and staff, are filled with rhetoric to make pro-life advocates sound violent, over the top, and inconsiderate. Pro-abortion advocates do all they can to shape the thought of men, women, and teenagers to hate pro-life advocates. All the while pro-lifer supporters offer choices in a time of crisis, pray for those involved in abortion, and tell women they care and will help them. Many people are influenced by these talking points since abortion is a political norm and according to most media — pro-life advocates are violent. Planned Parenthood has used their talking points well and will continues to. But I ask you: where does the truth lie?
Pro-life advocates stand on the side of truth and real life:
- Most women suffer severe post abortion syndrome after abortion which include, depression, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, eating disorders, cutting, suicide, and difficulty in bonding with children born subsequent to the abortion procedure, among other symptoms.
- Science confirms that life begins at conception, verifies the development of the child, and contradicts the Planned Parenthood fallacy that the unborn baby is only ‘a blob of tissue’.
- Abortion is not good for women as is seen in the Abortion Breast Cancer (ABC) link.
But these aren’t the only truths. Recent under cover investigations continue to show that Planned Parenthood aids sex trafficking, doesn’t report abuse of sexually abused minors, and avoids the legal system. Yet, some in society and government still choose to look the other way and say that our tax dollars should fund abortion and Planned Parenthood even when our country is too broke to fund Planned Parenthood and their claims of providing health care for women, while simultaneously killing hundreds of thousands of young women in the womb every year.
The abusive pro-abortion rhetoric has injured the pro-life movement, yet they continue to vigilantly stand on the side of life. When will we see truth be told and justice for the unborn?
Be sure to contact Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
Tell Congress NO tax dollars for abortion.
