    Planned Parenthood: "Abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun"
       Life, Liberty, Faith & the Family (Independent) -> The Equal Protection for Posterity Committee


    The above ad is from 1964.

    Thanks to Karl Priest of West Virginia for providing this revealing look back to when even PP told the truth about when life begins!

    Posted 2009-06-02 5:42 AM (#15190) By: EternalVigilance

    Back in the 1960's before Planned Parenthood realized that using scientific truths in its literature would lessen its revenue, it was halfway honest.

    A 1963 Planned Parenthood brochure actually says "An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun." That's something we pro-lifers didn't start saying en mass until years later!

    A book from 1969 reviewed below states: '... at least one [sperm] will reach the egg, fertilize it, and conception will take place. A new life will begin.'

    Eventually Planned Barrenhood saw that for their industry of death to maximize profits,
    truth would not be their "best policy".

    "Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me!"

    While the words won't, the deceitful manipulation and misapplication
    of words in law has been the greatest cause of death in history.

    Pro-Choice Advocates Agree that Abortion Kills Humans.

    Many abortion advocates have agreed that abortion kills human life: A 1963 Planned Parenthood brochure says that life begins at conception: "An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun."{01} Former Planned Parenthood President Faye Wattleton admits that the preborn are alive in her 1986 book:
    "There are many sperm cells in the [seminal] fluid. If one of them meets an egg cell inside the mother, new life can begin to grow... If one of your friends is pregnant, ask her to let your child 'feel the baby move.' ... A baby grows in a special place inside the mother, called the uterus -- not in her stomach. In nine months it is born."{02}

    Similarly, Dr. Mary Calderone, former director of Planned Parenthood has stated that "[a]bortion is the taking of a human life"{03} and Dr. Alan Guttmacher,{04} former president of Planned Parenthood and founder of the Guttmacher Institute, the research affiliate of Planned Parenthood, has stated "[f]ertilization has then taken place; a baby has been conceived."{05} {06} While many abortion defenders readily concede that abortion kills human life, it is necessary to expound on this point because examining the nature of the unborn human being at the point of conception shows the inherent dignity that we all share from our biologic beginnings that are hidden from eyes of the world.

    Not only have representatives from the nations largest abortion provider agreed that life begins at conception, but others who support abortion have agreed that abortion is murder. Dr. Magda Denes who performed two years of research in an abortion facility and compiled her results{07} told a Chicago newspaper "There wasn't an (abortion) doctor who at one time or another in the questioning did not say `this is murder.'"{08} Even Kate Michelman, President of N.AR.A.L. seems to be moving in the direction of agreeing that abortion is murder by her statement that "[a]bortion is a bad thing."{09} Others who have at one time been heavily involved with abortion have later agreed, such as "Jane Roe" Norma McCorvey, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, and Carol Everett.

    In addition, everyone who uses the term "fetus" unwittingly acknowledges that the unborn human is an unborn child because fetus is Latin for "unborn child." Unfortunately for the unborn child, the term fetus has fallen into use as a way of dehumanizing the unborn child, as shown by the primary use of this term by people when they are arguing for abortion rights, in comparison to when they are discussing a baby that is wanted by the mother.

    Planned Parenthood admits: Life begins at conception

    IN THE 1960'S, the terminology of medical texts had not yet been changed to dehumanize life in the womb. (The pregnant woman was "the mother" and the fetus was "the child" or "baby." )  The legal and political system had not yet corrupted the scientific realities of life before birth.

    In 1969 McGraw-Hill Inc. was publishing a book on Conception, Birth and Contraception and needed some input from an authority on the subject. It turned to Planned Parenthood and the Sex Information & Education Council of the United States (SIECUS).

    "This book provides a solid base for understanding the anatomy of reproduction," wrote Mary S. Calderone, MD, Executive Director of SIECUS, in her Introduction to the 129-page book. "Access to such fine books as this one will assure our young people that ... finally adults are becoming willing to 'tell it like it is.'"

    Similarly, "Dr. George Langmyhr of Planned Parenthood Federation of America ... reviewed the material on contraception," state authors Robert J. Demarest and John J. Sciarra, MD, PhD, in their Foreword.

    Within the pages of Conception, Birth and Contraception, however, the pro-life position is presented with pictorial and verbal accuracy. The book clearly pushes contraceptives, with some faulty information on the safety of the IUD, etc., but the personhood of the unborn is fully supported throughout the text.

    In fact, the book's own glossary definition of the term "fetus" begins with: "An unborn child." Pregnancy, likewise, is defined as: "The condition of being with child."

    In the aftermath of Roe v. Wade, of course, today's Planned Parenthood -- largest abortion provider in the world -- would never admit that life begins at conception, or depict the infant in utero, in full-page illustrations, as a person. To do so, would suggest not only a violation of rights, but even murder, in the diabolical Roe v. Wade decision.

    No doubt today's SIECUS, as well, would attempt to discredit the pro-life (factual) content of this "fine book" which it's leader in 1969 described so positively.

    Some excerpts

    Following are some excerpts from the book, approved by Planned Parenthood and SIECUS four years before the legalization of abortion:

    "... at least one [sperm] will reach the egg, fertilize it, and conception will take place. A new life will begin." (page 15)

    "... the egg which, if fertilized, gives rise to a new life." (page 3)

    "From fertilization to delivery, mother and child are as one for approximately 266 days. At the end of the period the mother delivers the infant into the world ..." (page 3)

    "It is the female who carries the baby during the nine months of its prenatal life." (page 17)

    "However small it may be, the egg is about two thousand times as large as the sperm that must fertilize it. carries the food the growing embryo will use during the first few days of its life." (page 26)

    "... to grow within the mother." (page 32)

    "The inherited characteristics of the baby to be born ... are determined by material within the egg and sperm ... each mature egg contains genetic material carrying the inheritable characteristics of the mother ... the child receives inherited characteristics from both parents." (page 50)

    "The placenta ... transfers nourishment from the mother ...." (page 53)

    "... ectopic pregnanc[ies] ... are dangerous to the mother and provide no possibility of a live child." (page 53)

    "The growth of the baby within the uterus takes nine calendar months." (page 57)

    "The sex ... could also be determined by examining under a microscope cells which are present in the amniotic fluid ... however, the doctor would have to puncture the amniotic cavity. This procedure is not undertaken except under very unusual circumstances having to do with the baby's health. So until the baby is delivered, no one knows whether it is a boy or a girl." (page 61)

    "... the bloodstreams of mother and fetus ... never touch, and the blood in each remains separate. Oxygen and nutrients pass through the placenta, from the bloodstream of the mother to the fetus, and waste products from the fetus pass in the reverse direction into the bloodstream of the mother." (page 64) [i.e., the fetus is not part of the mother's body]

    "... a doctor examining the mother can hear the fetal heartbeat ... The mother can feel the movement ... its arms and legs ..." (page 65)

    "... the doctor may perform an operation called a cesarean section and remove the baby ..." (page 68)

    ".. its head is well down in the pelvic area of the mother -- the ideal position for it when the birth process begins." (page 68)

    "The new life that has been growing within the mother for approximately nine months is now ready to enter the world. The passage of the baby through the birth canal is called delivery, and the process by which this is accomplished by the mother is called labor... Occasionally, a baby is born before thirty-eight weeks ... and the baby's chance of survival depends upon its weight and state of development at birth. When it is time for delivery, the mother begins to experience uterine contractions.... felt by the mother in her back ..." (page 72)

    Planned Parenthood vs. Planned Parenthood

    Marc T. Newman, Ph.D., President of, gave a terrific presentation at the CareNet Pregnancy Center Fall Fundraiser this week. 

    One of the most intriguing things he mentioned was a Planned Parenthood advertisement published in 1964 to promote birth control.  Read the whole thing, then consider this from the Q&A section:

    Is it [birth control] an abortion?

    Definitely not.  An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun.  It is dangerous to your life and health.  It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it.  Birth control merely postpones the meaning of life.

    There you have it!  Straight from the experts at Planned Parenthood.  Read that again and try not to drown in the irony. 

    So Planned Parenthood used to teach that abortion kills a baby and poses medical risks to the mother.  As Dr.  Newman asked, what did Planned Parenthood learn since the early 1960’s that caused them to change their stance on what abortion really does?  carenet-walk-05-55.jpg

    Could it be the sonograms and 4-D ultrasounds?  No, those do more than anything to promote the pro-life view.  Technology is the enemy of pro-legalized-abortionists and it always will be.  They might have gotten away with the “blob of tissue” argument in the 60’s, but not today.

    Could it be the studies showing the impact of abortion on women?  No.  Despite major political pressure, more studies continue to show the adverse impact abortion has on women – both physically and emotionally.

    Or could it be the megabucks they make from abortions that caused them to change their minds?!  money.jpg

    Folks, always remember that when it comes to abortion, Planned Parenthood had it right the first time: “An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun.  It is dangerous to your life and health.”

    Be sure to quote them on that whenever you can.

    More on Planned Parenthood here.
