Hang Up the Hangers
I love it when a pro-abortion mantra is proven to be a blatant lie. It’s especially gratifying when the source of the lie dispels its own myth.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the perpetually self-contradicting world of Planned Parenthood. The billion-dollar abortion giant aborts the truth every single day. They mask their fake feminist agenda under the guise of “women’s rights” and “reproductive freedom”, asserting their power over the tragically (or willingly) misinformed. If only we had an institution that would call out big government-funded corporations and their corruption. If only we had a well-financed network of organizations that would investigate these easily disproven myths. If only we had people charged with the responsibility of informing the public.
Oh, wait. We do. It’s called mainstream media. But the only thing they’re interested in mainstreaming is a steady stream of deception, distortion, and demonization (of pro-lifers, of course).
Any time pro-life protections are passed on the state or federal level, pro-abortion forces decry the “onerous” regulations. I love, by the way, that they always use the word “onerous”. It must’ve been focus group tested, because it’s used all the time by Planned Parenthood, NARAL, “Catholics” for Choice, and other pro-abortion groups unconcerned with actually protecting women, or any human life for that matter.
They share the same scare tactics so using the same vocabulary isn’t surprising. Hangers are raised and many tales of millions of deaths, pre-Roe, are told. Never mind the abortionists who have, literally, gotten away with murder. Those women’s lives don’t matter to the radical abortion lobby. These abortionists, though, are the same “back alley” butchers they’ve always been. They’re protected by Big Abortion and their cheerleaders in the mainstream media no matter how heinous their actions.
But wait, Planned Parenthood declared back in 1959 that (gasp): “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure…90% of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.” In fact, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s own Medical Director, Dr. Mary Calderone, clarified her remarks by saying these illegal abortions were “being done well by physicians.”
Planned Parenthood apparently forgot their own 1959 presentation to the American Public Health Association where Dr. Calderone also opined: “In 1957, there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind…Call them what you will abortionists or anything else [I’ll call them abortion profiteers], they are still physicians. They must do a pretty good job if the death rate is as low as it is.” 1957 people. Nineteen…fifty…seven.
Well, pro-abortion “feminists,” there you have it. Go out there and correct the record. Hang up those hangers. Holster your hatred of the truth. And help women know the difference between being empowered and being fooled by those in power.
