The old adage “If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it” was on full display at Saturday’s so-called “Woman’s March,” co-sponsored by Planned Parenthood.
What lie? The one that puts fear into the hearts of some women that this new administration is going to strip them of their “reproductive rights.” However, Planned Parenthood’s definition of “reproductive rights” includes abortion, their number-one business.
The only reason that the new administration might defund Planned Parenthood is because of abortion. If Planned Parenthood left the abortion business, they would still qualify for their annual one-half billion dollar tax subsidies. They refuse to do this because abortion is their number one business. Last year Planned Parenthood aborted 327,000 unborn babies…Big Business!
Embedded in the lie is that if Planned Parenthood is defunded women will not be able to get contraceptives. The truth is that every county health department in Oregon, along with more than 9,000 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) nationwide, serves high-need populations regardless of ability to pay and provides not only contraceptives but also a wide range of health care services. Contraception is covered under every Oregon health plan and can be filled at any pharmacy.
Saturday’s March should have been called the “Some Women’s March,” as pro-life women were dis-invited from all marches.
Hundreds of thousands of pro-life women have, for more than four decades, since the legalization of abortion on demand, marched annually in Washington DC to celebrate the value of every woman, including those yet to be born. Let’s not let the ugliness of Saturday’s rally discourage us…Donald Trump won the Presidency in large part because of his pro-life promises and Clinton’s avid pro-abortion position. Pro-life is winning…keep up your good work!
