A Record of Evil Reviewed
One Republican member of the Senate panel, in justifying his vote to support a $15 million windfall to Planned Parenthood of Idaho – argued that he may not agree with some of what Planned Parenthood does, but Senate Bill 1140 would allow the organization to do some good things.
Well, I suppose any group of ill-advised persons might accidentally perform a valuable public service – but the good senator too quickly dismisses the overwhelming record of evil amassed by this organization since its founding back in the days of Margaret Sanger.
Planned Parenthood is simply not a morally-neutral source of medical care. I would hazard to say that the various clinic services are mere enticements to indoctrinate young women with their poisonous brand of feminism.
This legislation, for instance will pay Planned Parenthood for providing “counseling services”. Will that “counseling” be value neutral? Or will it reflect the kind of values which drove Planned Parenthood to sue the State of Idaho three times since 1998?
They oppose parental consent for abortions – arguing that girls as young as 14 are mature enough to make their own decisions. They oppose a ban on partial birth abortions. They have demanded public funding of all low-income abortions.
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider. In 2003, Planned Parenthood killed 224,628 preborn children at its “clinics” around the nation, making a handsome profit of $104 million in the process. That is more than one-third of its total clinic income.
We urgently need your help to stop this bill. You must call your state senator today. In the Boise area, you can call 332-1000. The Legislature’s toll-free number is 1-800-626-0471. Say NO to SB1140.
