Planned Parenthood has been lying for decades.
- In the 1930s, ‘40s, and ‘50s, Margaret Sanger was publicly opposed to abortion. Yet, at the same time, she instructed the heads of her clinics to take care of “overdue” women by referring them to a doctor or hospital who would handle the situation in some way other than a live birth (Margaret Sanger by Madeline Gray).
- In the 1960s, Planned Parenthood pressured the medical community to redefine conception from the joining of the sperm and egg to implantation in the womb. This allows PP to say that the birth control pill will “prevent pregnancy” when what it actually does—most of the time—is prevent implantation of an already created human being.
- In the 1970s and ‘80s, Planned Parenthood invented the teenage pregnancy problem by
- Including married 18 and 19 year olds as “teenagers.”
- Reporting pregnancy statistics as per 1,000 not per 100. Thus, if two percent of high school and younger girls become pregnant in a given community, the problem is not reported as a two percent problem, but as a teen pregnancy rate of 20 per 1,000. As a result, local citizens got upset at the high number and “demanded” a solution. Planned Parenthood then pushed its sex ed programs, teen pregnancies increased further, and PP claimed the answer is more comprehensive sex indoctrination.
- In the 1990s and 2000s, Planned Parenthood claimed it served “poor women.” It does not tell the public that the overwhelming majority of the “poor women” are actually high school and college students who do not earn much money, but who are led into a sexual lifestyle by Planned Parenthood.
