Planned Parenthood’s main business is abortion: report

A report by the American Life League’s Stop Planned Parenthood International (STOPP) debunks myths about the abortion giant. Planned Parenthood Federation of America: A 5-Part Analysis of Business Practices, Community Outcomes, and Taxpayer Funding argues that “three primary rationales used for taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood – women’s wellness, reduction of teen pregnancy, and serving the poor – are all invalid.” Planned Parenthood justifies its role in public health through the provision of “safe sex” education and contraceptives to adolescents, which ...

Planned Parenthood opposes protection for abortion survivors

A representative from Planned Parenthood refused to say to Florida legislators that babies who survived an abortion should not be killed. Alisa LaPolt Snow of Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates was invited to speak before the House Civil Justice Subcommittee on March 27 on HB1129, a bill mandating that abortion survivors receive medical care from hospitals. It ultimately passed the subcommittee by a 10-2 vote. Snow shocked Florida lawmakers by her comments. When asked by Rep. Jim Boyd (R) what ... (Continue reading)

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, head of the ... (Continue reading)

Abortion and the eugenic attitude

Margaret Sanger, the early American abortion advocate, believed in the practice of eugenics. Like many misguided early twentieth-century social activists, she believed that eugenics was – in her words – “the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.” For Sanger, birth control did not simply constitute a marginal alteration of the ratios of reproduction; it meant that unfit races and classes were to be bred into oblivion so that the fit remaining members of ...

IPPF complains about Ottawa’s lack of funding

The International Planned Parenthood Federation, the world’s largest abortion provider, is complaining that the Canadian government has not yet responded to its request for a funding renewal of $18 million over the next three years. IPPF spokesman Paul Bell told Canwest News Service that his organization was “taken by surprise” after Michael Ignatieff pointed out the delay in IPPF’s funding in late January while he was pushing for abortion in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s new G8 maternal and child health plan. The ... (Continue reading)

Katrina’s other victims

Paul Tuns The Interim Early reports of 10,000 deaths in the wake of Hurricane Katrina are now, fortunately, higher than reality but the death toll may still ignore the victim’s of the storm’s chaotic aftermath. England’s Sunday Mail broke a story of hospital staff committing euthanasia in the days after Katrina hit New Orleans, ... (Continue reading)

Quote of the Month

Parents must battle the Planned Parenthood mentality

Many people believe that increased sex education in schools will reduce teen pregnancies. But Robert Ruff says in Aborting Planned Parenthood, "The net effect is to aggravate the teen pregnancy problem by increasing the number of teens who are sexually active." He notes that contraceptive-oriented sex-ed courses are correlated with an astounding 50 per cent higher rate of teen promiscuity. More sexual activity inevitably leads to increases in unmarried pregnancy, abortion, and ... (Continue reading)

A new name for Planned Parenthood – but nothing changes

Campaign Life Coalition British Columbia president John Hof placed the file on the desk at the B.C. Corporate Registry office in Victoria. Checking the financial status reports of various pro-abortion organizations has become an annual trek for pro-lifers, much as it is for those in the abortion industry who check out pro-life groups. But Hof never guessed he would come across so radical a change as to make him stop and ponder. Planned ... (Continue reading)

Sanger’s children

Once, in a washroom at Halifax Airport, I discovered that the paper towel dispenser was empty. The condom machine was full, but towels are better for drying hands. In Toronto last year, the condom dispensers in the lady's room were equally well stocked, but it was impossible to get cough drops in any of the terminal's many kiosks. On CBC radio last summer, condom usage was described as "an act of ... (Continue reading)
