Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is using God

Planned Parenthood letter

Planned Parenthood letter

The following comes from a May 23 story on LifeNews.com.

In a Pastoral Letter to Patients, Planned Parenthood tells women and girls in a crisis pregnancy that there is nothing in the scriptures that says abortion is wrong and that many clergy think abortion is okay:

“The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, you’re not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, we’re here to support you in your decision.

“Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures—Jewish or Christian—and there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.

“The beliefs of each person are deserving of respect, and each person deserves care and compassion,
“No one should be allowed to force their faith teachings on anyone else.

“We believe this decision is yours, made with your doctor and anyone else you choose to bring into the conversation, such as a spouse, partner, parent, or clergy person.”

The letter goes on to tell the future paying abortion customer that, “God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide. You can find strength, understanding, and comfort in that love.”

  1. “Thou shalt not kill means” do not kill anyone, even an unborn baby. How much more explanation is needed? If people stop having abortions, it will reduce the profits of Planned Parenthood.

    • Your Fellow Catholic says:

      Good question. Just wondering, did you ask that of Dick Cheney?

      • Ann Malley says:

        In a bizarre twist, YFC, brings up Dick Cheney. But to what end? To support Planned Parenthood’s lying to women regarding the religious implications of killing one’s innocent unborn?

        • Your Fellow Catholic says:

          AM, please follow the conversation before making bizarre accusations. Commenter Sarah said, ““Thou shalt not kill means” do not kill anyone, even an unborn baby.”. Dick Cheney, by taking us into unjust wars, killed tens of thousands, including mothers and their unborn. THAT is what is bizarre and twisted.

          • Ann Malley says:

            So are you for Planned Parenthood misrepresenting God’s law to potential customers? THAT is the conversation, YFC.

            And your ‘civics’ lesson for the day is Dick Cheney is no longer the VP. So move on already. Or are you fixated on living in the past or just wrapped in your own pet issues? I think the answer may be yes for otherwise your politico for the day would be Obama using drones.

            Get with the program!

          • juergensen says:

            Self-Proclaimed Catholic,

            “Thou shalt not kill” is actually “Thou shalt not murder” in the original Hebrew. “Murder” is the killing of innocent life, as in the butchering and dismembering of innocent babies. Unlike “murder”, “killing” can be justified, as in Just War and self-defense (CCC 2309, 2265).

          • Your Fellow Catholic says:

            I’m aware of the differences juergenseon, thanks, and I agree with them. And no obective observer of the war on Iraq would dare claim it qualifies as a just war. Which is why you may notice that the former President doesn’t travel much to Europe, if at all, for fear of being indicted.

          • juergensen says:

            Indictment by the abortionist/sodomite governments of Europe would seem to me to be a badge of honor, no?

        • YFC is trying to justify the murder of 1 MILLION INNOCENT babies each year in the USA – as supported by OBAMA, Hillary Clinton,
          and the Democratic Party – per their National Platform.

          • Your Fellow Catholic says:

            not ted, sorry to disappoint. plz find another punching bag.

          • Ann Malley says:

            If you want to claim punching bag status then you need to claim who threw the first political punch – and that was you, YFC, with your Dick Cheney redirect to Sarah’s comment.

            Translation: Don’t step in the ring if you’re not prepared to take a hit, Sir. That’s common sense.

          • Your Fellow Catholic says:

            Ann Malley thanks again for stepping in to throw a punch. I am not defending abortion, and by now you have read enough of my comments to know that. I was merely broadening the conversation. I was accused of being pro-abortion by Ted, an untrue accusation which was a punch at the wrong punching bag. That’s all. But you see a chance to throw a punch at me, and so over the ropes you come.

          • Ann Malley says:

            Then why not mention the current administration’s use of drones, YFC, if all you wanted to do was broaden the conversation? Or the current administrations push for more abortion at home and abroad?

            In your attempt to broaden the conversation, you diverted it from abortion which is the topic. That said, it’s pretty silly to claim you’re a punching bag or even the wrong one when you place a target squarely in front of your proclaimed anti-abortion self and then dance around the ring.

            So again, do you think it is righteous that Planned Parenthood is misleading those who, in many instances, are afraid and in a crisis situation to believe that God is okay with abortion? Do you part ways with this current administration’s push to make abortion available and legalized everywhere?

          • YFC, you said, “please find another punching bag.” Hmm, like Dick Cheney perhaps ? That was a sucker punch if you ask me.

          • Your Fellow Catholic says:

            Fine Ann Malley, let’s call out the current administrations use of drones! I think there is some doubt as to whether they are justified in the quantities and situations they are used, but I am horrified at that. So fine, let’s talk about the use of drones!

            I think we need to talk about ALL the ways in which life is degraded, destroyed, and discarded. Or have you been paying attention to my posts?

          • Ann Malley says:

            I’ve been paying close attention, YFC, and I’m happy to see you’re now ‘broadening’ the discussion to include the failings of your own political party. I hope you vote them out due to their heinous lack of respect for human life and the natural law.

      • John Feeney says:

        YFC, are you trying to rationalize abortion?

  2. St. Christopher says:

    And, where are our brave bishops when this type of thing is published? Probably quaking in their Versace’s that someone might call on them to defend the Faith, to tell the World that PP is obscene, as well as incorrect, in what they say. Except for a very few, this will not happen, of course. In fact, even the few seconds of bravery of the very few are usually snuffed out by public criticism, or sarcasm from their brother ordinaries. Yet, this is precisely the time and place to stand up and shout out the truth! Too bad that it will not happen. Difficult to be a bishop, and much easier to be craven. Just think of the perversion: God is with you when you take the life — murder — your own child. Is that true? Is God with robbers, when they steal? Homosexual sexualists when they commit sodomy? Adulterers when they breach their marriage commitment? Do not confuse God’s eagerness to forgive these sins, with the absolute truth that these acts are serious deadly sins. But, who really cares? People will justify their own perversions, and Pope Francis concelebrated a Mass with a 91-year old homosexual priest (who sees nothing wrong with homosexual sex). If Francis, and PP, are correct, we have it all wrong. Just say, “Jesus loves me so I can do whatever I want.” Although put more colorfully, isn’t this what Luther said? In many, many ways, the new Catholic Church, particularly as colored by Francis, is starting to look pretty much like the Lutherans.

    • We have nearly 60 million dead babies in America, aborted, because the tax exemption to the Catholic Church would be in jeopardy-that’s the bottom line. Never mind that losing that exemption some 40 years ago would not have shuttered every Catholic church and school. God would not have abandoned us, but would have provided amply. We are now reaping what we have sown, and it will get much much worse for us. Be ready to be persecuted, even killed, for the Faith. Will we have 60 million martyrs in the USA? We already have…

  3. Linda Maria says:

    These people are insanely selfish and immoral! It never occurs to them, that pregnancy is a special gift only God can give–and abortion is a HORRIFIC CRIME, in which a helpless little baby, so sweet and adorable– is evilly MURDERED!! WITH NO MORAL CONSCIENCE!! A mother’s pregnancy is NOT an event for some immature, selfish woman to make a “personal decision” about, as to whether the child shall live– or be KILLED brutally, at Planned Parenthood! Is it every mother’s dream, to run around in the gutter, leading a sinful life— and then, to run down to Planned Parenthood, when she gets blessed with a pregnancy— and KILL GOD’S PRECIOUS CHILD, so that she may lead an evil life, of NO RESPONSIBILITY?? Is THAT what your mother, and my mother did?? Of course not– Planned Parenthood is INSANE!! All world religions uphold traditional Marriage, Family, and Motherhood, as sacred! To lead a very good life, and to be a virgin until Marriage, is required, in all world religions, and Motherhood is viewed as holy, an act of God! The man and woman making Marriage Vows are required to be open to receiving the children which God may bless them with, as a married couple! It is a sorrow, for a married couple to be barren, or infertile! Their home must be a place of love and joy, with lots of children, as a family, a place to honor God, and religious teaching! The gift of a child is holy and special, a great JOY— and a big responsibility, too! Planned Parenthood and its Godless, immoral people, are all INSANE!!

    • Ann Malley says:

      These ‘people’ are farmers, Linda Maria. Seeking to separate young people from the helpful influence of their parents – who actually love and care for them long term – so that they can be farmed, like sheep for wool or bred, like cattle for veal.

      Those who aid them are nothing but facilitators or farm hands, hired on to help guide the sheep to the slaughter. Any ‘clerics’ who aid in this situation, even by omission are like the hireling, posing as a shepherd. They have no desire to die for the sheep…

      If only what you have just written were actually true about all world religions!

  4. “THOU SHALL NOT KILL”. – Ex 20:13.

    “Love Your Neighbor as Yourself” – JESUS Mt 22:37-39.

    Here are a few verses from the Protestant King James version of the Bible regarding abortion.

    “Endowment for Human Development”

  5. juergensen says:

    Baby butchering is a constitutional right; sodomites can marry; “Catholics” vote for baby butchering Democrats; and Klan Parenthood invokes God.

    We are no longer “Slouching Towards Gomorrah”; we are there.

  6. “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”

  7. “not even mentioned in the Scriptures”! Planned Parenthood is practicing Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals rule #4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”. What rule would that be? ‘Sola Scriptura’! Bottom line PP hates babies and loves profits.

    • SandraD says:

      Great comments Tracy…..we need to keep pushing back on the Saul Alinsky radicals.

      • Thanks SandraD! I for one am sure tired of their evil tactics inspired by their father of lies.

        Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals rule #10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” seems to be the modus operandi for the Alinsky radicals who frequent this site.

  8. St. Christopher says:

    “Your Fellow Catholic”: Another vile and irrelevant comment. The commandment not to kill is just that, a commandment from God. Your attempt at making a debate point — “what about Cheney? — is nonsensical, as well as an effort to deflect attention away from the issue: abortion is murder, and those that have one (and enable one) violate the Ten Commandments. Why not ask: “what about Charles Manson”? The point is that Planned Parenthood is running for cover, and is trying to deflect heavy criticism against it but voicing some kind of tacit “pro-choice” element in sacred scriptures. That kind of logic may work with many of the feminized and homosexualized bishops and cardinals in America and the Vatican, but not here. You really aught to try to stand for something besides sodomy rights.

    • Your Fellow Catholic says:

      St. Christopher, you are the one who brought gay rights into this conversation, and it must be because you are so blinded by your obsession with homosexuality that you can’t look at me and seem me as having any life or opinions or spritiuality or politics outside of my sexuality. For you to see my comment as in any way related to gay rights, then it just shows how unable you are to see me as a complete human being and fellow catholic.

      • Ann Malley says:

        Stop pulling the gay card, YFC. Your attempt to undermine Sarah’s comment by dragging in Dick Cheney backfired. Talk about transparent agenda pushing.

      • Anonymous says:

        YFC stop pretending to be “Catholic”.
        Even the moniker you have chosen is offensive because it is a lie.
        If you were ever baptized, you should correctly call yourself Catholic heretic or Catholic schismatic.

  9. Anonymous says:

    From yesterday’s celebration of the Visitation:
    “For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
    the infant in my womb leaped for joy.” {Luke 1:44}
    Talk about a strong statement regarding babies, long before seeing the light of day, are indeed human beings, worthy of protection!

  10. Nothing in Scripture about abortion? Oh, really? While the word abortion itself isn’t mentioned in Scripture (the word “Trinity” isn’t mentioned either), there is enough inference to the killing of the innocent in both the O.T. & the N.T. For example, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 reads: “Do you not know that the you are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroy’s God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are God’s temple. The Book of Exodus in the O.T. tells us, “Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous for I will not acquit the wicked.” And of course there is Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Also, read Psalm 127:3 where it says, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord….” These are just a few passages from Scripture which condemns ALL killing, whether it be the unborn, or the born.

  11. juergensen says:

    “Pastoral Letter to Patients” … Oh, there’s that “pastoral” word again. Usually invoked to justify mortal sin. Reminds me of the “pastoral” approach of bishops in allowing baby-butchering politicians to receive Holy Communion.
