Important Questions About Planned Parenthood
Was Planned Parenthood really built on racism?
According to The New York Times, Margaret Sanger said "Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks— those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization."

Margaret Sanger was very racist against black African Americans as she refers to the black community as undesired weeds.
Pearson Place denounces this despicable statement made by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. We are sharing this ugly historical note to bring awareness to the evil roots that Planned Parenthood is built on.

How does overturning Roe v. Wade impact Planned Parenthood providing abortions?
According to the SCOTUS, "The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated [seized] that authority. The Court overrules those decisions and returns that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
Voters now have the authority over abortion laws returned to state legislators. Local politicians can now decide the fate of abortion within their state.
State abortion bans are now an option as local politicians are now able to pass laws regarding abortion.
In states that legally restrict abortion, Planned Parenthood has to stop providing abortions. Some Planned Parenthoods are shutting down.

What is the result of an abortion provided by Planned Parenthood?
When Planned Parenthood provides medication abortions or surgical abortions, the result is devastating. With each abortion, a brand new human's life is abruptly and tragically ended. When someone intentionally ends the life of another, this is often referred to as homicide.
The steps to perform an abortion are often not described by abortion advocates. The technical description of what happens in a chemical abortion or surgical abortion is very gruesome. Destroying a beating heart or pulling a baby apart limb by limb is difficult for abortion advocates to talk about. Abortion is not attractive to talk about because what happens in an abortion is repulsive.

What does the name Planned Parenthood mean?
Planned Parenthood is the brand name for several abortion clinics that provide abortions for profit. The name Planned Parenthood is built on the false belief that life needs to be planned. It is a false belief that it is ok to destroy an undesired baby. Life is a gift from God.
Once a woman becomes pregnant she is already a parent. Planned Parenthood is not helping her plan her parenthood, as she is already a parent.
Are Planned Parenthood's abortion services morally wrong?
Abortion is the process of killing a small human, usually in the womb.
The ultimate source of truth is from God. In the Bible it says that killing is wrong. Exodus 20:13 says, "Thou shalt not kill." Therefore abortion access is clearly breaking this sacred law found in the ten commandments.
What is my best option in a Planned Parenthood waiting room?

Does emergency contraception actually end the life of a child?
Emergency contraception works to end a pregnancy at the earliest moments. Life begins when a woman's egg is fertilized. When emergency contraception works to block this new life from continuing then that could reasonably be considered killing this new human life.
What are my reproductive rights according to Planned Parenthood?
Planned Parenthood says in their mission, "Advocate for public policies that protect and expand reproductive rights and access to a full range of sexual and reproductive health care services, including abortion…"
Planned Parenthood promotes the right to end the life of a baby girl or baby boy in the womb. If you think about it, it would be more accurate to call this "unreproductive."
The problem with this idea is that abortion is really the ultimate abuse against the patient's child. Planned Parenthood is accepting money from moms and dads to stop their offspring's life. Planned Parenthood is profiting from extreme child abuse, against children in the womb.

Who is Planned Parenthood targeting as their audience?
Planned Parenthood is offering abortion services to pregnant women. They love your fear. Planned Parenthood will tell you you can't afford your baby. How is that empowering? Clients should be supported with parenting classes and material assistance instead of destructive ideas of abortion. When Planned Parenthood calls abortion "healthcare," it is clear their messaging is driven by lies and manipulation.
Does Planned Parenthood recognize how an IUD can be an abortifacient?
According to Planned Parenthood's website IUDs can be an abortifacient. "If you get one of these IUDs put in within 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex, it’s more than 99% effective. It’s actually the most effective way to prevent pregnancy after sex." The IUD can be used to end a pregnancy after fertilization and therefore end the life of a child in the womb.
How much money does Planned Parenthood receive each year?
Planned Parenthood Federation of America received 1.6 billion in income while also having 2.0 billion in net assets.
Does Planned Parenthood provide adoption referrals or do they just provide abortions?
Planned Parenthood provided 1,940 adoption referrals in 2020-2021 while providing 383,460 abortion services during this same time period. This means that a Planned Parenthood patient is 19,766% more likely to choose an abortion over adoption.

Why are people often praying outside of a Planned Parenthood office?
To help people know that abortion is not their only choice, concerned people will pray and request that clients reconsider, entering a place known for aborting children for profit.
Many people believe that life is precious and that women are being manipulated to end their pregnancies. The decision for a mom to stop her child's life by having an abortion is serious.
Many people who understand what is taking place feel called to do something about it. One good idea is to intercede and encourage young moms to avoid making this tragic decision.
Planned Parenthood locations deserve a warning label. Danger! Do Not Enter!
Is Planned Parenthood political?
Planned Parenthood works to motivate people to vote for greater abortion access. Their political posture includes getting votes for candidates who will promote abortion access. The result is that Planned Parenthood will provide abortions for millions while also profiting from each billable procedure.
Planned Parenthood officials are working to provide more abortion services rather than wholistic health care. True health care would take care of all of the humans present. This would include prenatal care and adoption services while not offering abortions, as abortion obviously destroys life and creates trauma.
