Planned Parenthood Once Declared Abortion Was Murder

Long before Planned Parenthood’s crusade to anesthetize the general consciousness as it relates to abortion, the organization flat-out admitted it was a life-ending procedure.


Cecile Richards and her minions will declare abortion is “women’s healthcare” and that it occupies the same category as routine procedures like Pap smears and breast exams. Except it doesn’t. Basic women’s healthcare doesn’t involve stopping a beating heart and then scraping out the remainders of the once growing life.

In the first half of the 20th century, though, Planned Parenthood told a different story.

Obianuju Ekeocha is a pro-life speaker and writer who heads up Culture of Life Africa, which is focused on reinforcing the sanctity of life and the importance of motherhood in Africa. Part of the group’s beautiful mission:

This initiative is a heart-felt cry for people of good will from around the world to consider with us, how the introduction and promotion of the selfish and superficial anti-life culture is sure to unleash irreparable damage and carnage in Africa where new life in the womb brings hope to the hearts of many and where communal family life gives strength and fortitude to struggling men and women to prevail against all odds. We need to consider all of this so as to dissuade the rich and radical reformers from opening the flood gates of death in Africa under the guise of “choice” and under the empty promise of “progress”.


This past week, Ms. Ekeocha tweeted out some inconvenient truth that exposed Planned Parenthood.

Oh, so awkward for those bloodthirsty harpies. The pamphlet, from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, lists Q&A regarding birth control, emphasis mine.

Is it an abortion?

Definitely not. An abortion requires an operation. It kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it. Birth control merely postpones the beginning of life.

That’s far different from what Planned Parenthood currently preaches about abortion on their website.

Medical procedures that end pregnancy
Safe and effective
Available from many Planned Parenthood health centers
Costs up to $1,500 in the first trimester, but often less


But it isn’t just a procedure, it’s murder (see your own brochure, PP). It’s not safe for the baby, and it isn’t necessarily safe for the woman, either. It’s effective? Well, yeah. Murder is kind of final. It’s also expensive, and certainly not in the budget for low income women.

The thing about abortion is it’s a black-and-white issue. You’re either for legal homicide or you’re against it. Sitting on the fence is unacceptable. You must decide. That decision says much about your worldview upon which everything else rests.

Decades ago, Planned Parenthood declared that abortion “kills the life of a baby.” They were comfortable with admitting that. Now, Planned Parenthood glosses over this most important fact by covering it with a variety of terms to ease the mind.

As made evident by their own promotional material, they have always been aware of the truth.
