“100 years strong.”
That is what Planned Parenthood and its allies were chanting this weekend on the 100th anniversary of the abortion giant’s founding. Even President Obama tweeted his support.
For a century, Planned Parenthood has made it possible for women to determine their own lives. Here's to another #100YearsStrong.— President Obama (@POTUS) October 16, 2016
Yet behind the façade of this celebration hides the memories of at least 7 million babies who never saw their birthdays because of Planned Parenthood’s systematic campaign to end their lives before they even started.
Since its founding 100 years ago, Planned Parenthood has been masking its lethal agenda with gentle euphemisms like “women’s healthcare” and “reproductive rights.”
Yet their legacy is clear. Instead of empowering women, they have exploited vulnerable women and treated them as highly profitable line items in their revenue reports. Instead of supporting families, they have torn them apart, spreading the lie that children are a nuisance to be snuffed out instead of a blessing to be valued.
But the veil is slowly being lifted. From the undercover videos revealing the illegal sale of baby body parts to rapid improvements in ultrasound technology that show us a clear picture of a life inside the womb, the evidence is daily mounting exposing the barbaric reality of what is happening in abortion clinics across the country.
Stories of abortion survivors like Gianna Jessen are being told.
A recent study shows that even 53% of millennials, a generation often labeled as overwhelmingly socially liberal, believe abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances. This is a huge positive shift in momentum for the pro-life movement.
There is reason to be hopeful that the next 100 years will be ones marked with fervent protection of life at every stage.
As former Planned Parenthood worker turned pro-life advocate, Abby Johnson, told us while filming our recent documentary Abortion, Inc., “My goal is to not just make abortion illegal. My goal is to make abortion unthinkable.”
Let’s look expectantly for the next 100 years to be filled with pro-life advocacy that values and protects the lives of every woman and child in order to promote human flourishing for all.
