NO IT FUCKING WELL ISN’T, SAYS THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE. Women aren’t being told this simply because it IS NOT TRUE.

ABORTION DOES NOT CAUSE BREAST CANCER. Never has, never will.

Take your lies and shove them up your ass.

Planned Parenthood propaganda lies feminism
naomijune
Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about your right to choose, they care about your money.

warriorsoftruth:

“We already know that so-called ‘Crisis Pregnancy Centers’ don’t provide medical services – they’re nothing more than disguised anti-choice activists misleading pregnant women away from making their own decisions. In North Carolina, there are eight times as many CPCs than health centers that provide a full range of medical services. Funding CPCs to push anti-choice propaganda and misinform pregnant women is a waste of taxpayer dollars.” – Planned Parenthood

There have been many articles circulating the Internet in the last few weeks exposing Planned Parenthood of lying about their medical services. Planned Parenthood is nothing but a large organization pushing Abortions.  They call themselves “Pro-Choice” but really, if you aren’t willing to have an Abortion, you had better leave right away – they don’t help women who are not there to receive an abortion.

FACT TIME. MY FAVORITE TIME OF DAY.

Planned Parenthood’s quote about CPCs is entirely true (watch the movie 12th and Delaware to understand what I mean), and they are a registered non-profit organization who does more for reproductive rights than almost anyone else in the country.

These are Planned Parenthood’s services:

[Image: a pie graph labeled “Patient Care Provided by Planned Parenthood Affiliate Health Centers” with figures from 2009. Abortion services are only 3%. STD Testing and Treatment, 35%. Cancer screening and prevention, 16%. Contraception, 35%. Other women’s health services, 10%. Other services, 1%. There were 11.4 million total services that year. End description.]

"Pushing abortions" my ass. Look at that graph. Fucking look at it. And they aren’t profiteering from abortion, either. It’s only 3% of their services, and all profits Planned Parenthood receive go to funding their other services because they are a nonprofit organization.

Planned Parenthood does help people. For many women in particular, Planned Parenthood is their only viable source of the health care services listed in the graph above because they cannot afford health insurance. Would you really take away that last resource and leave all those women to die preventable deaths from STDs or undetected cancer?

So somehow, I think that woman’s story of a Planned Parenthood employee kicking her out for wanting a pregnancy test because she wanted to keep the baby is a complete and total fabrication. After all, I’ve caught lifesitenews.com lying red handed. This would not be the first lie told by you anti-choicers (see: the rest of this blog). And on the off chance that it is true, let me tell you, that is not standard procedure (see the above pie graph). All it shows is the shocking conclusion that some people suck at their jobs.

Jesus, for a “Warrior of Truth”, you sure do spread a lot of lies.

180 180 film propaganda bullshit feminism ray comfort lies hitler holocaust adolf hitler history
simplynicyxx

simplynicyxx:

People forget the past, the history and when that happens it is bound to be repeated in the future.

LOL. This movie is total bullshit. Let me just list a few things off the top of my head.

  • Ray Comfort is Evangelical, not Jewish—and yet he condemns all those people for lying? Yes, he’s Jewish by heritage, but so am I. But I’m an atheist now, and I would never say “I’m Jewish” because that would be intentionally misleading.
  • There is no comparison, whatsoever, between abortion and the Holocaust. At all. These comparisons are antisemitic because you are appropriating the suffering of millions to further your own bullshit cause that Jews don’t even usually agree with.
  • More on the last point: “Christians may share the ‘Old’ Testament with Jews, but that in no way means we share the same interpretation. In the Mishnah, Oholot 7:6 teaches that if a woman’s life is at risk, she is obligated to terminate her pregnancy because her life is valued above the potential life of a fetus. Typically the Jewish interpretation of when life begins is at birth, not at conception, and sex is considered a mitzvah [a commandment or ‘good deed’]. By forcing their religion and fear of women’s sexuality onto Jewish people, anti-abortion groups aren’t just sexist, they’re taking away our ability to live according to our own cultural and religious convictions. I’m not the first Jewish person to draw this conclusion either." (Source)
  • Hitler was actually a Christian and believed he was doing the Lord’s will. You’ll see this pretty plainly if you read just a few pages of Mein Kampf.
  • He was opposed to elective abortion. He only supported it for the purposes of eugenics.
  • That “quote” supposedly from Hitler about God being a tyrant? Yeah, actually said by Herman Rauschning. And I couldn’t find a single reliable source indicating that any Nazi said that people were slaves to the Ten Commandments.
  • This is such a slippery slope fallacy. Abortion being legal won’t lead to mass genocide of any kind. Get. A. Grip.
  • Rape apologism. What the fuck.
  • Comparing abortion to blowing up a building. What the fuck.
  • Comparing consensual sex to rape. What the fuck.
  • Turning this into a Jesus fest at the end. What the fuck.
  • This just purposefully makes Americans look dumb. There’s no way that many teenagers actually have no idea who Hitler was. He’s the most demonized figure (and rightly so) in modern history. Hell, even Glenn Beck knows, and all too well, who Hitler was.

Did you know that most aborted babies’ heads are too big to come out through the vagina naturally?

So the doctor will crush the baby’s head and rip the head out separately, shard by broken shard.

This picture makes my heart ache, because this gift from God was never given the opportunity to live, never given the chance to enter this world and touch lives. That makes me sad.

Do you SEE it’s lifeless hand, hanging?

Pro life.

………………………………………….

Pro-choice. no matter what picture you wanna post ill always be pro-choice. It is not my decision what other woman, let alone ANYONE does with their body or with their life.

I’m so fucking sick of seeing shit like this. people need to pay attention to their own lives instead of obsessing over other people’s choices and making grotesque photos like this to try and get everyone to do what they want. this is disgusting. 

LOL OP. Where the fuck did you pull that from? That is complete and total bullshit, as most abortions actually look like this.

[Image: a poster of an ultrasound of an embryo. Text reads above it, “100% of abortions are lethal. <1% (less than 1%) are performed to save the life of a mother.” At the bottom, in smaller text, “A fetus has a body. It’s not your body. 94% of all abortions are purely elective.” End description.]

[Image: a doodle of a stick figure standing over a crowd reading a sign that says in blue, “[CITATION NEEDED]”, as is seen on some Wikipedia articles. End description.]

Where the fuck is your source on that statistic? You also contradict yourself within this very poster. At first you say that less than 1% of abortions are performed to save the person’s life, and at the bottom, you say that 94% are purely elective. That’s a difference of 5%, which means you’re contradicting yourself by about 75,000 US abortions (and 2.1 million abortions worldwide). Make up your goddamn mind. [Edit, math fixed.]

Also, let me tell you, all abortions are life-saving in some way or another. Some people may not develop physical complications, but have mental issues that would make pregnancy difficult or impossible. And if someone can’t get a safe and legal abortion, they’ll get an unsafe one, which will very possibly kill them, and very probably leave them with a debilitating permanent injury. Infertility is common among the survivors of botched abortions.

So, apparently Ray Comfort is actually a Christian. Color me shocked that he lied to get his point across but whatever.

Oh, holy shit. You’re right. O_O

CAN THIS GUY BECOME ANY MORE OF AN ASSHOLE?

Seriously, he tells all these people they’re going to Hell for lying, and here he lied about something so basic?

Thanks for pointing this out, though. I don’t make it a point to question what people say their religion is, but god damn this guy is a fucking asshole.

… I really hope Comfort realizes that Hitler WAS a Christian.

If you read Mein Kampf, you’ll find Hitler using all kinds of religious language to justify his murders. He believed he was doing the Lord’s will.

The Press Association: Abortion and mental health 'linked'

I see a lot of these links are posted by you on the abortion tag. This being the “most comprehensive study to date” on the topic is a lie. This study by the New England Journal of Medicine is more comprehensive and uses better methodology. It also comes to the opposite conclusion. Here is also more information on how, exactly, Coleman’s study is fraudulent and incorrect.

Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortion propaganda lies

The Truth About Margaret Sanger: Not a Eugenicist, Probably Not a Racist Either

propaganda-for-life:

This is a long read, so I’m only going to post the beginning of it. Thanks, samanthatoren.

————

Margaret Sanger gained worldwide renown, respect, and admiration for founding the American birth control movement and, later, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, as well as for developing and encouraging family planning efforts throughout the international community.
Among her many visionary accomplishments as a social reformer, Sanger

• established the principles that a woman’s right to control her body is the foundation of her human rights; that every person should be able to decide when or whether to have a child; that every child should be wanted and loved; and that women are entitled to sexual pleasure and fulfillment just as men are

• brought about the reversal of federal and state “Comstock laws” that prohibited publication and distribution of information about sex, sexuality, contraception, and human reproduction

• helped establish the contemporary American model for the protection of civil rights through nonviolent civil disobedience — a model that later propelled the civil rights, anti-war, women’s rights, and AIDS-action movements

• created access to birth control for low-income, minority, and immigrant women

• expanded the American concept of volunteerism and grassroots organizing by setting up a network of volunteer-driven family planning centers across the U.S.

Sanger also entertained some popular ideas of her own time that are out of keeping with our thinking today. Finding it easier to undermine her character than to confront the message she conveyed, the anti-family planning movement has seized upon some of these ideas, taken them out of context, and exaggerated and distorted them in order to discredit Sanger and the organization she founded.
Not content with exaggeration and distortion, anti-choice activists have also fabricated and attributed to Sanger points of view that she, in fact, found abhorrent. This fact sheet is designed to separate fact from fiction and to further explain Sanger’s views and the background against which they must be judged.

Sanger and Eugenics

Eugenics is the science of improving hereditary qualities by socially controlling human reproduction. Unable to foment popular opposition to Margaret Sanger’s accomplishments and the organization she founded, Sanger’s critics attempt to discredit them by intentionally confusing her views on “fitness” with eugenics, racism, and anti-Semitism. Margaret Sanger was not a racist, an anti-Semite, or a eugenicist. Eugenicists, like the Nazis, were opposed to the use of abortion and contraception by healthy and “fit” women (Grossmann, 1995). In fact, Sanger’s books were among the very first burned by the Nazis in their campaign against family planning (“Sanger on Exhibit,” 1999/2000). Sanger actually helped several Jewish women and men and others escape the Nazi regime in Germany (“Margaret Sanger and the ‘Refugee Department’,” 1993). Sanger’s disagreement with the eugenicists of her day is clear from her remarks in The Birth Control Review of February 1919:

Eugenists imply or insist that a woman’s first duty is to the state; we contend that her duty to herself is her first duty to the state. We maintain that a woman possessing an adequate knowledge of her reproductive functions is the best judge of the time and conditions under which her child should be brought into the world. We further maintain that it is her right, regardless of all other considerations, to determine whether she shall bear children or not, and how many children she shall bear if she chooses to become a mother (1919a).

Margaret Sanger clearly identified with the issues of health and fitness that concerned the early 20th-century eugenics movement, which was enormously popular and well-respected during the 1920s and ’30s, when treatments for many hereditary and disabling conditions were unknown. However, Sanger always believed that reproductive decisions should be made on an individual and not a social or cultural basis, and she consistently repudiated any racial application of eugenics principles. For example, Sanger vocally opposed the racial stereotyping that effected passage of the Immigration Act of 1924, on the grounds that intelligence and other inherited traits vary by individual and not by group.

In 1927, the eugenics movement reached the height of its popularity when the U.S. Supreme Court, in Buck v. Bell, held that it was constitutional to involuntarily sterilize the developmentally disabled, the insane, or the uncontrollably epileptic. Oliver Wendell Holmes, supported by Louis Brandeis and six other justices, wrote the opinion.

Although Sanger uniformly repudiated the racist exploitation of eugenics principles, she agreed with the “progressives” of her day who favored

• incentives for the voluntary hospitalization and/or sterilization of people with untreatable, disabling, hereditary conditions

• the adoption and enforcement of stringent regulations to prevent the immigration of the diseased and “feebleminded” into the U.S.

• placing so-called illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, and dope-fiends on farms and open spaces as long as necessary for the strengthening and development of moral conduct

Planned Parenthood Federation of America finds these views objectionable and outmoded. Nevertheless, anti-family planning activists continue to attack Sanger, who has been dead for over 30 years, because she is an easier target than the unassailable reputation of PPFA and the contemporary family planning movement. However, attempts to discredit the family planning movement because its early 20th-century founder was not a perfect model of early 21st-century values is like disavowing the Declaration of Independence because its author, Thomas Jefferson, bought and sold slaves.

Sanger’s Outreach to the African-American Community

In 1930, Sanger opened a family planning clinic in Harlem that sought to enlist support for contraceptive use and to bring the benefits of family planning to women who were denied access to their city’s health and social services. Staffed by a black physician and black social worker, the clinic was endorsed by The Amsterdam News (the powerful local newspaper), the Abyssinian Baptist Church, the Urban League, and the black community’s elder statesman, W.E.B. DuBois.

Beginning in 1939, DuBois also served on the advisory council for Sanger’s “Negro Project,” which was a “unique experiment in race-building and humanitarian service to a race subjected to discrimination, hardship, and segregation” (Chesler, 1992). The Negro Project served African-Americans in the rural South. Other leaders of the African-American community who were involved in the project included Mary McLeod Bethune, founder of the National Council of Negro Women, and Adam Clayton Powell Jr., pastor of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem.
