Rooting for elimination of Planned Parenthood funding

My husband and I were delighted to read that the Republican-controlled U.S. House voted to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funds.

“The Burlington office does not perform abortions,” claims Planned Parenthood, but an article from the Des Moines Register in 2000 states that RU-486 is available at the Burlington clinic.

Planned Parenthood lies to women.

RU-486 is a chemical abortion. Many other “contraceptives” also cause abortion early in pregnancy. The birth-control pill, IUD, Nuva Ring, patch, and Depo-Provera work to prevent implantation in the womb, starving to death the newly formed child.

Emergency contraception also works as an abortifacient. The only reason women seek emergency contraception is if they suspect they may have gotten pregnant.

When a sperm meets an egg, new DNA — a new person — is formed. There may be less than one drop of blood in his/her being, but it is innocent blood.

Deuteronomy 19:30 states, “Thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood … that it may go well with thee.”

There have been more than 60 million surgical abortions in America since 1973, and many, many more chemical abortions with no end in sight.

Cutting off Planned Parenthood’s federal funds is a start — a good start — to ending the slaughter.
