[Discerning readers will note the past tense in the title.]
First, it was their 1964 advertisement that accurately stated, among other things, that “An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun.” Even if I haven’t agreed with them since I was 1 yr. old, I’m always looking for common ground.
Now I found out that we agreed again on a similar truth: Life begins at fertilization.
OK well it was 1951 but still, Planned Parenthood said it! The brochure, titled, “The Gift of Life” was discovered at a Berkeley estate sale by the San Francisco Weekly. On page 21-22 you will read the following; “If one of the new male sperm meets and unites with an egg cell, a new life begins.”
Did they learn anything about science in the few years after that when they changed their minds about life beginning at fertilization and that abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun? Of course not. The facts of science couldn’t be more clear: A new human being is created at conception
. They just lie now for the money and to advance their worldview. To make a living they crush and dismember innocent but unwanted human beings.
As always, I’m too pro-science to be pro-choice
. When people bring up the “we don’t know when life begins” canard I highly encourage you to use this link
about the scientific position plus the quotes by Planned Parenthood noted above . Use them gently and people may see that Planned Parenthood and the like know the truth about when life begins as well as pro-lifers do, but they go on killing anyway.
