Planned Parenthood is Suing Again…and Again

“PP” Just Wants to “Help” Teens?

Planned Parenthood (PP) is at it again. Suing to impose its graphic sexual education on minors, and suing to kill unborn children with Down’s Syndrome.

PP has announced that its lawyers are among nine organizations suing the Trump Administration, because the government has elected not to fund its “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP).” According to LifeNews these include PP for the following states: Washington, Iowa, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana and Texas. The basis for the suit is that the government has “no cause” for cancelling funding. Since when does the government have to fund anything? President Trump obviously feels the TPPP programs are not working; in August last year it was revealed that 81 organizations were not going to continue to receive funding started under President Obama. The axed amount is estimated in the range of over $200-plus million.  The HHS or U.S. Department for Health and Human Services does follow-up reporting on these groups to ascertain that goals they set “are making sufficient progress toward their stated missions and are serving the public interest.”  As those who follow PP know, the organization has been lambasted frequently for its blatant “sexual education,” which has been argued to increase sexual activity and promiscuity. And as we know, where contraception fails – and it does fail – this leads to abortion. Oh wait, PP does abortions, too, including on teens. PP advocates would do well to read the Gospel of Matthew: “But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea” (18:6).

PP Also Wants to Abort Down’s Syndrome Babies

At the same time that Gerber has chosen Lucas Warren as its first Gerber Baby, Planned Parenthood is also suing the State of Ohio through the ACLU, for the “right” to kill Ohio babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

The Ohio Right to Life’s Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act was signed into law December 22, 2017 by pro-life Governor John Kasich. Mike Gonidakis of Ohio Right to Life has issued a statement, which makes clear that the ACLU does not believe in equal rights for all: “It is a shame that an organization that claims to be the very biggest and best at defending victims of discrimination completely disregards the most vulnerable members of our society who are being discriminated against. The ACLU is hurting Ohio by constantly suing to further an extremist agenda.”

Killing babies simply because they screen positive for Down’s is eugenics, the same practice embraced by Adolf Hitler. The only difference was he ordered handicapped children killed after birth, starting with babies to toddlers age three in 1939. By the end of the war, the age range extended to teens up to age 17. Think this is farfetched? A cousin of Pope Benedict XVI had Down’s Syndrome. The Nazi Party “therapists” came to collect him in 1941 and the Ratzingers never saw him again.

In 2016, Denmark aborted 133 of 137 babies diagnosed with Down’s, based on national statistics. In other words, only four babies with Down’s were “allowed” to live. If Denmark aborts 98%, Iceland virtually aborts them all. Britain aborts 90% of those diagnosed with Down’s. Each one of us is made in God’s image and each live is sacred. Eroding these values is a slippery slope. The Sixth Commandment, “Thou shalt not kill,” did not have a footnote that stated, “except in handicapped circumstances.”
