Planned Parenthood's latest sick idea

Here's my WND column for this weekend entitled "Planned Parenthood's latest sick idea."


For those unable to access the WND website, the text of the column is below.



Planned Parenthood’s Latest Sick Idea

As you’ve probably heard by now, in late March a Planned Parenthood affiliate in Pennsylvania sent out a revolting tweet: “We need a Disney princess who's had an abortion.” (Not just an abortion; apparently America is also ready for a Disney princess who is pro-choice, an undocumented immigrant, a union worker, and transgender.)

Undoubtedly realizing they’d crossed the line, the abortion provider deleted the tweet soon after – but not before igniting a firestorm of protest. Planned Parenthood Keystone head Melissa Reed confirmed her group sent (then deleted) the tweet, stating their attempt to “challenge stigma and champion stories that too often don't get told.” (Then why did you remove the tweet?)

In that same statement, Reed defended her branch’s efforts to mix politics and meme culture. “Planned Parenthood believes that pop culture … has a critical role to play in educating the public and sparking meaningful conversations around sexual and reproductive health issues and policies, including abortion,” she said. “We also know that emotionally authentic portrayals of these experiences are still extremely rare – and that’s part of a much bigger lack of honest depictions of certain people’s lives and communities.”

Whoa. Educating people about “sexual and reproductive health issues” – that’s asking a lot of Disney. (That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if Disney took the idea seriously. Sadly, this venerable organization has long since abandoned the wholesome family-friendly content on which it was built.)

Reed also said, “Emotionally authentic portrayals of these experiences are still extremely rare.” Putting aside the appropriateness of pushing abortion on little girls, what does she consider “emotionally authentic” portrayals? Women weeping in anguish for the life they’ve extinguished? Women fighting breast cancer later in life resulting from their choice to abort?

And let’s see – if a Disney princess had an abortion, was she married or just sleeping around? Was she too stupid to know about birth control? Was she so weak she was incapable of keeping her knees together?

For generations, Disney provided role models for little girls with its princesses who overcame adversity with good cheer, hard work, sweet dispositions, and strong personalities. They’re not known for coming to the silver screen steeped in regret about their personal lives. There are no thoughts of, “Gee, I wish I hadn’t slept with Prince Charming on the first date. But at least Planned Parenthood was available to come to my rescue and kill my baby so I can continue to wear pretty dresses without losing my figure.”

How long has it been since Reed and her cohorts have come up for air in the real world? How long has it been since they’ve poked their heads out of their cauldron of sex and murder to understand most Americans – particularly little girls in the 3 to 10 year age demographic – aren’t interested in sexual promiscuity?

Now let’s look at what a princess used to be, shall we? In a monarchy, a princess was the daughter of a king. Her genetics helped ensure the continuation of the monarchy, whether or not she was in direct line to the throne. Princesses were often negotiation tools whose marriages were used to cement alliances. Believe me, princesses didn’t sleep around (at least, not openly). In the medieval world in which monarchs ruled supreme, the purity of a princess’s sexual life was of utmost importance, far more so than for princes.

So why celebrate a princess who had an abortion?

Of course, Disney princesses aren’t without their critics. Rebecca Hains, associate professor of advertising and media studies at Salem State University, said in a Washington Post column, “The Disney Princess brand suggests that a girl’s most valuable asset is her beauty, which encourages an unhealthy preoccupation with physical appearance. The brand also implies that girls should be sweet and submissive, and should expect a man to come to their rescue in an act of love at first sight. Although newer characters like Elsa, Anna, Merida and Rapunzel behave in ways that correct these ideas, as a whole, the brand remains out of step with modern ideas about raising girls.”

It appears Hains is correct – “modern” ideas of raising girls encourages them to “empower” themselves by ignoring what’s between their ears to focus on what’s between their legs. This is why Planned Parenthood sees everything through the lens of murder and sexual promiscuity, even to the point of how little girls should view mythical heroines.

There’s only one reason to urge Disney to create a princess who’s had an abortion: to normalize murder. Feminists are astoundingly hostile about applauding old-fashioned role models for little girls. Ironically, they push the notion that women should be little more than sexual toys. No wonder Planned Parenthood’s services are so “necessary” to empower women when their promiscuity inevitably results in pregnancy.

Feminists don’t like to admit it, but most little girls are not born as feminists. They’re born as little girls. They like pretty things – princesses, dolls, sparkly unicorns, whatever – at least until they’re marinated in a feminist mindset long enough to reprogram their young impressionable brains in a direction contrary to their biological instincts.

But this whole “let’s applaud women who have had an abortion” attitude proves how much the definition of “hero” has changed over the last few decades. We used to look up to people whose virtues and strengths were admirable. But now Planned Parenthood wants Disney to bring down standards for little girls by showing them what they can aspire to someday. You too can sleep around, get pregnant, kill your baby, rip the parts from your body, and still be able to wear pretty dresses and crowns!

In 2016, Planned Parenthood murdered 328,348 babies in the womb. During the same period, their contraception and cancer screening/prevention services declined. I guess “educating the public and sparking meaningful conversations around sexual and reproductive health issues” doesn't pay as well as killing the innocent.

Sick sick sick. Twisted twisted twisted.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I would never condemn a woman for having an abortion. No one knows what personal reasons called for such a measure, and those reasons could be anything from frivolous to desperate. It’s a rare woman who doesn’t regret to some degree her actions, though the regret may not happen for years.

But the organizations providing abortions are something else. They don’t just provide a (cough) service; they actively encourage abortions, cultivate abortions, seek out abortions. They are evil, evil to their core.

Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire, wrote, “We need a Disney princess who uses her royal authority to defund you stupid a**holes.”

Now that’s a sentiment I can get behind.

  1. All of the innocent blood shed by this nation with abortions and never-ending wars is heart-breaking. Today is Sunday. How many Christians will hear their Pastors preach against these two bloodbaths? How many are taking a public stand? Virtually none, yet Christians keep sitting in the pulpits of these hirelings. (John 10:11-13)

  2. One comment from a few people and you demonize the whole idea of planned parenthood. PP isn't only just about abortion (which involves only about 12% of women who come there.) Birth control and family planning is the bigger part of what they do.

    There are over 10 BILLION souls on this planet today and over 795 MILLION of them are STARVING.

    In lieu of this, I feel PP should be available to every country throughout the world...if for no other reason than for our own survival as a human race.

    Young men and women SHOULD know about FAMILY PLANNING and birth BIRTH CONTROL. Knowledge is power and we need more of it to temper the problems we are facing tomorrow.

    As to the moral aspect...well...that can be left up to all the religious organizations who seem to manage just fine getting their message out. It's apples and oranges.

    Finding the pettiest of reasons ( and I'm sure you have found most of them)...to knock down such a well deserved organization, doesn't mean we should stay stuck on stupid.

    Look at the bigger picture. J.

    1. J, ah yes! Let's get rid of the ever pesky 'moral aspect'. Anything goes! Wow, see how simple life can be without a moral compass.

    2. I never said I was against having a high moral compass....but I do consider myself a realist.

      What I know for sure...is that you will never control everyone's moral standards to match your own. You can only love them.

      So the next best thing to do is to temper the problem so that we don't all go up in flames. J

  3. I agree Planned Parenthood does alot of good. Like Hitler ending Germany's depression and Drug Lords giving back to their communities; people just need to recognize the "good" these people/organizations do.-------- sarcasm---SuccotashRose

  4. Family planning.... From murderers? Really? Those are the people you want "helping" plan families?!?!?!

    Birth control is the reason for the killing.... It takes God out of the bedroom and procreation and says "I know better than you do God". If you know better than God why do you need him anyway? Sorry but that's just the fact. When you take God out then Satan steps in happily to murder souls and destroy families.... Birth control is evil. Sorry. That's a fact. Don't try to reason that it is not. It makes murder the only option when my will is not what happens.

    Well deserved organization?!? You're out of your mind. The organization has killed more people... More souls who each individual one is more valuable than the entire created universe. This Nations soil cries out with the blood of the innocent martyrs who's simple heartbeat was reason enough for death... By their own parents will. Control? Illusion.

    Lord Jesus help our nation who does not respect nor value life in any of it's stages.

    Perhaps next the Disney princess will euthanize her aging parents... Because you know let's normalize all evil.

    Repent America... Repent. The cry of innocent blood will not go unheard. Turn to Mercy and ask forgiveness. Perhaps our good God will yet relent the punishment we so deserve. Just be humble enough to admit our wrong doing. His Mercy endures forever if only we are humble enough to admit our need for it.

  5. I may yet eat these words, but-- I was thankful enough to be able to say, "Please, Lord, no more" after our fourth child (and go on being available for my husband). I have to admit to being fond of contraception.

    I'm still not comfortable with demanding that the law of the land line up with my opinion, because I don't feel able to say, "I will raise that child that I demanded the law force you to carry when you goofed up and got pregnant."

    As for my opinion?? It's NEVER something that should be glorified. I watched my mother mourn her (last) abortion; she was raped in a hotel adjoining the hospital while receiving experimental chemo in 1988. Maybe it was God getting even with her (or Satan laughing) over the two elective ones she'd had when she was young and, frankly, a slut.

    She cried in private, in the kitchen when she thought nobody was watching, because she "wasn't supposed to be sad."

    All the rainbow sparkles and songs-- all the normalization-- in the world won't make killing one's own child a carefree thing. I wish they'd stop trying.

    With all the effort they've put into it, you'd think we could build a world where every "unwanted" child has a set of arms that want him or her very much indeed, and we forgive each other's sins the way God forgives us.

  6. Just imagine how birth control could alleviate the need for abortion..now there's a thought!!

    1. I want to agree with you. Would have agreed with you, once.

      But it hasn't worked yet. What will alleviate the "need" for abortion, is when we start valuing children (all children, not just the planned and the perfect and the first and second born) instead of seeing them as burdens that put an end to your enjoyment, supporting mothers (not just giving them a welfare check) and for that matter fathers too, and forgiving mistakes instead of sneering judgment at the fool that messed up and got caught.

    2. I agree that we need people to value all children and children need to be planned.

      That would be great in a perfect world...but unfortunately...you will never see that happen 100%.

      (By the way, no one wants to "struggle" on unemployment or welfare unless they are mentally unstable or are in dire straights)

      Trump's decision to cut most of the programs that help these people has only caused a vacuum that takes it full circle back to the "last resort abortion solution". (PP education is critical for these cases)

      Unless you personally want to take these unwanted child yourself and give them the love and support they deserve, I don't see what else can be done in this already over-populated planet we call earth. J.

  7. This is definitely not the Disney of my childhood, and if they get sucked into this and ucumb, I will never watch another movie or share them with my grandchildren except the classics.
