In Friday’s episode of The Michael Knowles Show, Michael talks about a report about Planned Parenthood mistreating pregnant employees.

“The New York Times has a bombshell report out that Planned Parenthood is accused of mistreating pregnant employees. Now, this should not come as a surprise to anybody who has any sense of humor whatsoever. This is what they write: ‘Employers that champion women face accusations of discrimination against their pregnant workers showing how widespread the problem is in American workplaces.," Knowles said.

“You’ve got an organization that exists singularly, simply to end pregnancies and kill babies, and The New York Times is shocked that that agency, that organization would not treat pregnant women with respect,” Knowles said. “They’re shocked, this is such a contradiction to them because they don’t see the contradiction and the paradox of abortion. It goes on:‘Planned Parenthood, which has been accused of sidelining, ousting, or otherwise handicapping pregnant employees, according to interviews with more than a dozen current or former employees.’”

Knowles broke down the false statistics claiming Planned Parenthood’s abortion procedures only make up 3% of their services when it is more likely over 90%.

“The organization exists to end pregnancies,” he said.

“This story exposes just one contradiction of abortion which I want to talk about. If pregnancy doesn’t matter, if pregnancy is just like getting your appendix inflamed, then why does special treatment of pregnant women matter so much? If the unborn baby is insignificant, then why is pregnancy so significant? Why is this such a big issue? We talk about maternity leave as a national issue.”

"Ivanka Trump tried to make this into a national issue. The New York Times is making it a national issue. Why? If the pregnancy is nothing, if it’s just a little inconvenience that can be whipped away with no greater care than if you’re cutting your fingernails, then why is the pregnancy so significant. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”

The New York Times has a bombshell report out that Planned Parenthood is accused of mistreating pregnant employees. Now, this should not come as a surprise to anybody who has any sense of humor whatsoever. This is what they write:

“Employers that champion women face accusations of discrimination against their pregnant workers showing how widespread the problem is in American workplaces.”

This reminds me of this classic, I think it was Fox Butterfield headline in The New York Times that said: “Crime rate continues to fall despite prisons filling,” or “prisons continue to fill despite crime rates falling.” Now, we would all assume that if you lock up more criminals, the crime rate would fall. There is a causal relationship here where the crazy left-wingers see a paradoxical relationship or a contradiction. It’s the same thing here. You’ve got an organization that exists singularly, simply to end pregnancies and kill babies, and The New York Times is shocked that that agency, that organization, would not treat pregnant women with respect? They’re shocked, this is such a contradiction to them because they don’t see the contradiction and the paradox of abortion. It goes on:

“Planned Parenthood, which has been accused of sidelining, ousting, or otherwise handicapping pregnant employees according to interviews with more than a dozen current or former employees.”

The organization exists to end pregnancies. They always say that three percent of their services are abortion and everything else is non-abortion. This is because they count little nothings as “serves”. So, if you hand someone a condom, it’s a service, if you kill a baby, that’s a service, and they give out a lot more condoms. Ninety-four percent of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy-related services are abortion serves. It’s hard to arrive at a really precise number with confidence because Planned Parenthood doesn’t actually admit the number of women who go into their clinics every year who are pregnant. They can’t admit it, because the reason you go to Planned Parenthood is to get an abortion. So, using various other statistics that they’ve arrived at, it seems that the number of pregnancy serves that are related to abortion are ninety-four percent. This is almost all of them.

This story exposes just one contradiction of abortion which I want to talk about. If pregnancy doesn’t matter, if pregnancy is just like getting your appendix inflamed, then why does special treatment of pregnant women matter so much? If the unborn baby is insignificant, then why is pregnancy so significant? Why is this such a big issue? We talk about maternity leave as a national issue. Ivanka Trump tried to make this into a national issue. The New York Times is making it a national issue. Why? If the pregnancy is nothing if it’s just a little inconvenience that can be whipped away with no greater care than if you’re cutting your fingernails, then why is the pregnancy so significant. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
