As is usually the case, I spend my Saturdays cleaning and running errands so that I can have Sunday to myself to do whatever I like.
This past Saturday my errands took me to Central Avenue in White Plains, via Hartsdale, NY, where I passed Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic, a place where I have spent countless Saturday mornings praying.
Although I do not get there much anymore because of my workload in helping those who have been hurt by abortion, I know many who faithfully pray in front of that clinic and who participate in 40 Days for Life organized by Gerald Yeung. The next one will run this fall from September 28 to November 6th and I hope to make it there at least a couple of times.
One only has to go to the Planned Parenthood website and take a look around to see that their focus is on promoting sex, all kinds of sex, which in turn leads people to utilize their services which, of course, they make big money on. They are quick to deny women "right to know legislation" when it comes to the dangers of abortion and are currently trying to block HB2 which would require abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges in case a woman needs them. They say women are smart enough to make their own choices while at the same time denying them the information to do so intelligently. It seems to me that women have the right to know all available information before they make that "choice." However, Planned Parenthood only wants women to know what they want them to know. They also deceive women who are emotionally upset before an abortion convincing them to sign their rights away to use their aborted babies for "research," which leads to the selling of body parts, a federal offense.
Everyone knows that in the past year Planned Parenthood was exposed by The Center for Medical Progress in undercover videos which show their own employees speaking and joking about selling aborted baby parts. As shocking as it was, it came as no surprise. Although Planned Parenthood claims they provide health care services for women, abortion is not a health care service. Contrary to their misleading rhetoric, mammograms are not performed at Planned Parenthood clinics either.
I am sure that the current controversy is what caused them to put up the banner I saw there today. An attempt to validate what they want the public to believe.
They can hang up any banner they want to, but the truth is the truth. No amount of banners will change it.
