Planned Parenthood Reports Abortion Rate Up By More Than 8,000 in One Year
Planned Parenthood Federation of Americaâ€™s Web site shows that it performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. According to a fact sheet published in February 2011, Planned Parenthood clinics in 2009 performed 332,278 abortions â€“ up from 324,008 in 2008, or a 2.5 percent increase.
San Jose John wrote: I read somewhere that over 40% of abortions last year were performed on African-American fetuses (i.e. unborn babies). This is astounding considering that some of the birth-control pioneers of the early 20th century were actually trying to limit the numbers of blacks and other so-called "inferior" peoples this way. And yet I'm told Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and many other African-Americans today are significanly pro-choice--essentially playing into the hands of the very eugenicists they often decry. Hypocrites!
I would estimate that 99% of those who support abortion will say they â€śdo notâ€ť know when the baby in the womb becomes a human being with a soul with rights afforded others. Now just think about that for a moment; they donâ€™t know and yet they are willing to murder? No, the mere fact that they say they donâ€™t know, or the mere fact that they say â€śgetting an abortionâ€ť is a difficult decision makes their hypocrisy clear to everyone. Here is a good question that could be posed to them. Ask them if it would have been okay for Mary to abort Jesus when He was in her womb? Even if they donâ€™t believe that He was the Savior of the entire world, they are unlikely to say â€śif she thought it was okay, then it would have been okayâ€ť. Once again their hypocrisy will become clear. From the moment of conception Jesus was fully human and destined to be the Messiah of the entire world. Was His unformed body worthy of being saved from someone killing, no murdering Him? When these folks stand before the Lord and He looks into their hearts and souls, they will not cite a Supreme Court decision, poverty, or debate with Him in any way.
