Resolution Against Planned Parenthood
After the Texas primary elections, I attended our precinct convention. There were a total of six people present, including myself, my mom and grandmother. The convention was fairly short, but we did propose several resolutions. Taking the advice of Texas Alliance for Life, I proposed this:
Whereas, Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading abortion performer and promoter,
We urge all federal, state, and local elected officials and other community leaders to oppose any public funding for Planned Parenthood, their activities in our schools and communities, and the expansion of their facilities in our neighborhoods.
It passed easily! The next step is to argue for it at our Senatorial District resolutions hearing this coming Saturday. These will be my arguing points (I will probably have about two minutes at the hearing):
1. The most obvious part about this is that Planned Parenthood kills children by abortion. By funding Planned Parenthood, even if we are not specifically giving them money for abortion itself, we are enabling them to be financially stable, which allows them to continue to kill babies and hurt women.
2. The most lucrative part about Planned Parenthood is its abortion services. According to their latest annual report (2007), they aborted 305,310 babies and only referred 4,912 for adoption. When PP refers for adoption, they lose customers, and therefore, money. According to the Planned Parenthood website, an abortion in the first trimester can cost between $350 and $900! It’s a no-brainer for them.
3. Planned Parenthood consistently breaks the law. The grassroots pro-life organization, Live Action, has been instrumental in doing undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood and has found that they cover up the sexual abuse of young girls by not reporting statutory rape to the authorities, and allowing underage girls to get abortions either without their parents’ consent or across state lines. Planned Parenthood believes they are above the law and does not follow simple regulations in order to procure abortions, which, again, bring in a lot of money for them.
4. Planned Parenthood gives out false medical information. As Live Action has proved again, they insist that the baby is merely a “clump of tissue,” that a baby does not have a heartbeat at 7 weeks after conception (it actually begins at 3 weeks and 1 day after conception), and that it doesn’t become a “baby” until birth. As Abby Johnson, PP clinic director turned pro-life, said, “Planned Parenthood really tries to instill in their employees and the women that are coming in for abortions that this is not a baby, this is just a mass of cells.” Planned Parenthoods are not legitimate “health clinics.” They are death chambers for millions of little babies. We must de-fund Planned Parenthood! They are lying to women, covering up the sexual abuse of minors, and worst of all, killing our future generations.
