Warped Thinking of Planned Parenthood Again Exposed
(Harrisburg) – Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, recently said on the Bill Press radio program that the federal government should consider making birth control a priority in the recently signed health care bill because of the “cost savings” of fewer children being born. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide family group, objects to the notion that assaulting America’s future generations is a good idea let alone a good cost savings measure.
“Planned Parenthood’s despise for babies in the womb becomes clearer each day. Babies are a blessing not a burden to America. Planned Parenthood is either making their money by killing babies in the womb or by selling contraceptives,” noted Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.
Planned Parenthood, like so many others, is not thinking through to the end results such as fewer babies equal fewer in the work force and fewer in the work force equals fewer paying into Social Security and fewer paying taxes.
European nations are facing a decline in their populations France’s birth rate of about 1.8 children per woman makes it the only European country with the possibility of maintaining its current population through births. The number of births last year in the US dropped by 2.6 percent to 13.5 births for every 1,000 people last year, from 13.9 births in 2008. Now Planned Parenthood wants even fewer babies born and for the taxpayer to pay for it by encouraging the Department of Health and Human Services to have prescription contraceptives completely covered by health insurers under “preventive care” in the new health care law.
“Planned Parenthood only has its budget in mind as it seeks to harm America by destroying her future generations,” Gramley concluded.
