Planned Parenthood and the Alan Guttmacher Institute have ramped up their attack on minorities under the battle cry “disparities in health care” reported in the October 27, 2010 Wednesday STOPP Report.
Life Site News reports, “Planned Parenthood and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently launched a massive campaign, called ‘Birth Control Matters,’ to pressure the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to ensure that all prescription contraception is completely covered by health insurers under ‘preventive care.’”
There’s that word again—preventive—as in get rid of minorities, poor people and so on. But, as promised, here is what Americans are saying about the possibility that the health care law will provide free birth control to those who could not otherwise afford it:
• “I don’t believe in abortion, but yeah I think free birth control should be handed out that stops it before a child is there…better than paying for abortions and a lot cheaper in the long run …”
• “Let’s pay for abortions too!!”
• “This is fabulous! It’s the best answer for everyone right and left! Want to stop unnecessary abortions? Why not give (not force) the option to women? I should be allowed the same rights as a man when it comes to my reproductive rights. Why should Viagra be covered and not birth control? Don’t want anything to do with it? Don’t take what’s offered. But those of us who want birth control should have access to it.”
• “Hey why not. Just make sure you do not forget the ILLEGALS.”
• “If a women [sic] forgets to use her free birth control pills, can she get a free abortion?”
• “I live in Birmingham, Alabama. Here you can get birth control pills for free, as long as you have an annual gyn. exam at a clinic in your county.”
The above comments are just six of the thousands that were left in response to a news report suggesting the possibility that the new health care law could provide free birth control. If you were to read even hundreds of these comments, you would see that the same theme pervades. It is obvious that Americans in general—the people we must recruit to help us achieve legal recognition of human rights for all persons including the preborn—are people who are not educated in the scientific facts or the fundamental apologetics needed for anyone to understand why birth control is unhealthy for women, potentially deadly for preborn babies and devastating to the future of marriage and the family in America.
Instead of working on political campaigns and focusing attention on lawmakers, we need a greater emphasis within the pro-life movement on educating our neighbors, our fellow workers, our classmates, our relatives and perhaps even our siblings and our parents.
Until pro-lifers unite behind the human personhood movement and expose the deadly ties that exist between birth control, abortion, in vitro fertilization and other anti-life actions, our efforts will not produce the desired result.
“Disparities in health care” should equate with the need for more non-governmental charitable support for the basic human needs of the poor of every race—not tax-payer funded death by chemical and surgical means for their preborn offspring.
Until the human person’s dignity is respected as a gift from God and not the state, we will not achieve victory for the preborn.
