On Friday, pro-life advocate and Culture of Life Africa founder Obianuju Ekeocha uncovered old Planned Parenthood pamphlets which admit that abortion is murder, explaining that the act “kills the life of a baby.” Such literature has been archived by Speaker for Life.
As seen below, the Planned Parenthood literature from 1952 states that abortion “kills the life of a baby after it has begun,” and even warns that abortion “may make you sterile.”
Ekeocha provided more photos of that same piece of literature:
The pro-life advocate exposed yet another pamphlet with the same language:
Responding to the pamphlets, National Right to Life President Carol Tobias said that Planned Parenthood clearly knows “abortion ends the life of an innocent human being.”
Of course, the sincerity of such a declaration by the abortion mill should be questioned, as noted by National Right to Life’s Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon, who explained that “abortion was not officially allowed in America” at the time of the produced literature:
There are legitimate questions as to the sincerity of this declaration, coming as it did at a time when abortion was not officially allowed in America. But there is little doubt that Planned Parenthood soon changed its tune, fiercely fighting to legalize abortion and going on to become the nation’s largest abortion chain and most powerful abortion lobby.
Although some states legalized abortion before the landmark abortion case, Roe v. Wade officially legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.
As scientific studies and medical advances continue to reaffirm that a fetus is in fact a distinct human being rather than just part of a woman’s body, Planned Parenthood has attempted to cover-up this truth in order to advance their bottom line, under the guise of female empowerment, of course. On the official Planned Parenthood site, under “How Do Abortions Work?” the abortion mill cloaks the truth by referring to unborn babies as “pregnancy tissue” (emphasis added):
During a suction abortion procedure, the doctor or nurse will:
- examine your uterus
- put a speculum in to see into your vagina
- inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix
- stretch the opening of your cervix with a series of dilating rods if you haven’t had them put in earlier
- insert a thin tube through your cervix into your uterus
- use a small, hand-held suction device or suction machine to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus
- they may also use a small surgical tool called a curette to remove any tissue that’s left in your uterus, or check to make sure your uterus is totally empty.
