Opinion|DW| As I sit here thinking about the report you’re about to see, I’m saddened and infuriated in the same breath. I’ve lost count now how many times I’ve said that abortion is a politically-motivated term that should be challenged at every utterance of the word. Abortion is no less than premeditated first-degree murder for hire. If that definition isn’t reason enough to shake you up, then I don’t know what it will take to reach your sense of decency and morality.
At the forefront of the abortion industry is Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger, their founder, popularized the term “birth control,” equating it to the term “abortion.” So many babies have been murdered at their hand that it boggles the mind.
As seems common, California is making yet another headline on the abortion front at which we should be appalled. PP is pushing to open fifty MORE abortion referral facilities in the Los Angeles Unified School District, which is the second-largest school district in the nation!
We have this report from LifeNews:
California is pushing abortion on younger and younger students at taxpayers’ expense.
Though California already has far more abortion facilities than any other state in the country and very few limits on abortion, abortion activists apparently want more. First, they passed a law mandating that every public college campus provide abortions.
Now, they are opening 50 abortion referral clinics in the second-largest school district in the country, the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The Washington Post reports Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion group, announced its new partnership with the Los Angeles schools Wednesday.
Within the next three years, Planned Parenthood plans to open 50 clinics in Los Angeles County high schools. Without a parent’s knowledge or consent, students will be allowed to go to these clinics during school hours for birth control, STI testing/treatment and so-called “pregnancy counseling,” according to the report.
Though the in-school clinics will not provide abortions, they will promote them and refer students to one of Planned Parenthood’s many abortion facilities – again, without parents’ knowledge or consent.
Through the program, Planned Parenthood also hopes to train students to be “peer advocates” for its pro-risky sex and pro-abortion agenda.
In Los Angeles, Sister Paula Vandegaer, head of Volunteers for Life, told the newspaper that Planned Parenthood “pushes sexuality beyond where they should without reference to families.”
“I am against them being in the schools,” Vandegaer said. “They all have school nurses, and there’s no need for Planned Parenthood to co-opt the normal program for health in the school.”
Nonetheless, Los Angeles County has allocated $10 million in taxpayer dollars and Planned Parenthood has budgeted an additional $6 million (also quite possibly taxpayer dollars) to start the program, the report states.
Already, a few of the in-school clinics are up and running.
Here’s more from the report:
Five of the Planned Parenthood centers opened a few weeks into the school year. The rest are to be added before June. Officials involved in the project said the selected schools – in the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation’s second-largest – were targeted because they are largely low-income and have no similar medical providers in the vicinity. Two public health officials, trained by Planned Parenthood, will be stationed full-time at each school to provide education and counseling, and a Planned Parenthood nurse practitioner or other medical provider will come once a week.
Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and a former high school principal, said the program grew out of conversations about strategies for combating the area’s alarming rise in sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, among young people ages 15 to 24.
She said the clinics will be called “Wellbeing Centers” because they will do more than provide simple medical services: “We want to support their general well-being, the ups and downs of being a teen.”
Anybody with half their brain tied behind their backs should be able to tell with absolute certainty that actions like this have nothing to do with proper care of the children. The students are still children themselves, other than being physically capable of procreating.
What makes my hair curl is the whole sex-education perversion that PP is pushing. They advocate all manner of sexual activity, including the use of various “toys,” “protection,” and yes, even getting themselves checked for STDs every couple of months. They’re literally “grooming” the kids to be promiscuous, and then teaching them to have abortions.
Why would they do this? It’s for nothing more than the almighty dollar! There is no such thing as real prenatal care for young moms who want to parent their babies instead of killing them. The reason is obvious — it cuts into their abortion revenue. We won’t even go into the issues raised by some undercover videos that show how there is an entire under-the-radar market for aborted baby body parts and organs.
