Abortion's fundamental deception
By Judie Brown
June 20, 2010

Thirty-seven years ago, the United States Supreme Court decriminalized an act that Planned Parenthood had spent years promoting as a backup to failed contraception. That act is abortion. The historical fact is that, during the 1960s, Planned Parenthood's campaign to make contraception acceptable took the position that contraception was not abortion. Why? Because lying served its political purposes.

In one of its advertisements at the time, PP actually admitted, "An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun." http://www.dakotavoice.com/2009/06/planned-parenthood-admits-abortion-kills-the-life-of-a-baby/ By telling the public that this was the major difference between contraception and abortion, PP sought to convince the public that, for this reason alone, contraception was better than abortion.

PP never bothered to point out that the contraception it promoted also could kill a preborn child. It did not have to — it just convinced the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology to change the biological facts.

In 1965, ACOG issued a bulletin stating http://www.all.org/article.php?id=10678 "CONCEPTION is the implantation of the fertilized ovum." The lies just kept coming!

Good friend and Catholic columnist Joe Sobran wrote in "Legacy of Lies" http://www.sobran.com/issuetexts/2003-02.htm:

    Early advocates of legal abortion agreed that abortion was a bad thing, but argued that legalization would make it easier to regulate. Then they adopted the agnostic line: "nobody can say" whether abortion is wrong — it should be a matter of "individual conscience." Finally they switched to the position that abortion is a positive good, "a fundamental human[!] and constitutional right," which taxpayers, no matter what their consciences told them, should be forced to subsidize. The more abortions, the better. From pretending to want to minimize the frequency of abortion — since "it happens anyway" — they quickly moved to maximize it.

    And so it goes, lie after lie. Refute one lie, and two others spring up in its place. It's as tiresome as it is futile to debate people who argue in such consistent bad faith.

The fact is that those who advocate the killing of the preborn child are the very same people who would deny that a preborn human being is a person. PP and its cronies are committed to deception, for if they were not, they would never defend an act that kills someone by claiming that it was something else entirely. If this sounds like double-talk to you, then you understand the fundamental problem with abortion ... abortion is a lie.

Each day that abortion remains divorced from truth is another day the treachery continues. And it just keeps getting worse.

At a new PP facility in Colorado where RU-486 (mifepristone) abortions are available for $425 dollars each, http://www.all.org/article.php?id=12850 we find the following on the PP web site: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-center/centerDetails.asp?f=2172

    Abortion pill (medication abortion) is offered up to nine weeks after the start of your last menstrual period. If your last period was more than nine weeks ago, we can still help. Call us for a referral list of health care providers in your area that offer other abortion services.

From these few words, the depth of the abortion deception is clear. Equating the taking of a life with "health care" tells the entire story about the level at which Planned Parenthood operates.

They will lie to your children in the classroom; they will deceive them in a school-based clinic, they will spirit them away to a place where surgical killing is done ... and they will do it all with your tax dollars.

Isn't it time to stop the lies? If you think so, join us and make your voice heard. Contact American Life League www.all.org today!
