Yes. Exactly. This is why, when I went to Planned Parenthood for an exam after moving to a new city, I was asked what my preferred options were if the pregnancy test was positive. When I said I intended to keep the baby, I was given information for prenatal care, names of local OB/Gyns, and loads of brochures. The word "abortion" never came up. Ever.
Oh, and when the test ultimately came back negative? I was given information on infertility specialists. Guess they were just eager for me to get knocked up so I could come back and abort it. On my second visit a few years later, when we'd decided we didn't actually want kids after all, I was able to get vasectomy information for my husband, plus LOADS of info on other birth control methods to use in the interim...no questions asked.
I've been to Planned Parenthood three times, and have never been asked about, offered, or pressured to have an abortion.

Ken, tell me, why the fuck would PP be eager to get teens to get pregnant, then to abort the unborn? Do you think they blend the fetus and use it as a skin care cream? Dumbass!

Since when do grandparents have a say in the sex-life of their children and the number and timing of their grandchildren? To claim such a prerogative is grotesque and prurient.

Bluntly, no, fuck you.

And please explain why The Netherlands, which is one of the most liberal and open countries in the world regarding sex, where sex outside of marriage is totally normal: Why has this country both the lowest teenage pregnancy rates and the lowest abortion rates in the world? And why have other liberal european countries comparable numbers?
A liberal attitude towards sex, honest sex education in school, and widespread access to contraceptives for everybody has saved thousands more lifes than stubborn religious "true-love-can-wait-until-marriage" and "abortion-under-NO-circumstances" conservativism.
"Pro-Choicers" are also the real "Pro-Lifers". The numbers are clear without ambiguity. The so-called "Pro-Life" movement has failed spectacularly.

Bluntly, Planned Parenthood lures your kids into sex outside of marriage without your knowledge or consent. And then, they get to kill your unborn grandchildren without notifying you.
The purpose being?
4/8/2011 5:48:25 AM
That sounds like fun. Where can I sign up?
4/8/2011 5:55:31 AM
Wait, wait, wait... Ignoring the rest of the crazy in this sentence, are you saying that you're kids have to have your permission to have grandkids?

Says someone who obviously knows nothing about Planned Parenthood, outside of what their preacher tells them.

I present to you who the average fundie thinks is the average employee of Planned Parenthood.
Seriously, the only way this evil plot makes sense is just people doing something for the evulz.
4/8/2011 6:11:47 AM
So as long as they get permission, they can have sex outside of marriage? Then they can get abortions as long as they provide notification?
4/8/2011 6:19:54 AM
Oh, a pro-liefer.
God knows someone has to be there for the teenagers who were only taught abstinence and lies. Providing contraception, information, and reproductive health services only counts as "luring" in the minds of deluded people.
Also I'm pretty sure parents aren't entitled to grandchildren. And any parent who wants to force an underage girl to go through a pregnancy is a terrible and disgusting failure. A girl or young woman doesn't need anyone's consent in that area.
4/8/2011 6:23:44 AM
Um, that's not what they do...
4/8/2011 6:54:52 AM
It's hard to tell your parents you want birth control, and I think teenagers should have access to it without having to tell their parents. It would be even scarier for a girl facing an unwanted pregnancy with pro-life parents. Something as private as birth control and abortion should be confidential.

Yes, because adolescents need so much encouragement to do what their raging hormones are telling them to do.
It's a little-known fact that Planned Parenthood employees use time machines to create this trend of premarital sex before the organization even existed! Satan taught them how to build time machines out of two-stroke boat motors and moldy Wonder Bread. Their ultimate plan is to kill your grandfather so you'll never be born! MUHUHAHAHA!
Grow the fuck up, Ken. You don't have any "unborn grandchildren." Reality doesn't work that way.

Planned Parenthood is a great organization that's been demonized by right wing zealots and pro life fundies who need to keep the mistaken perception that PP is an abortion machine alive.
Why is it that those organizations who aim to provide resources to the weakest and most disadvantaged among us are always the biggest targets of the right? Is information their biggest enemy? Like that's a real question.
4/8/2011 8:38:44 AM
That doesn't even make any sense. So Planned Parenthood is going to waste their time and resources to make you pregnant and then they'll kill the resulting fetus? Why? What purpose could that possibly serve? Like GigaGuess said, the only way this plan makes any sense is if Planned Parenthood is full of cartoon supervillains that do these things just for the evulz.
4/8/2011 8:52:18 AM
And, you know this, how?
4/8/2011 8:53:29 AM
I think the idea is that Planned Parenthood is making big ol' buckets of money from doing the abortions.
Bluntly, no. To your whole comment. Managed to pack a lot of fail into two little sentences there, Ken. Very efficient.
4/8/2011 9:11:29 AM
I'd keep my sex life private if my parents were nosy parkers who think my sole reason for existing is to marry the first person I fuck and produce grandchildren for them.

Planned Parenthood lures your kids into sex outside of marriage
No, hormones do that. They've been around a lot longer than marriage certificates.
