Earlier this week, Obianuju Ekeocha, the Founder and President of Culture for Life Africa, uncovered a 1952 pamphlet from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America that reveals the abortion provider hasn’t always been so deceptive about the nature of abortion and the risks involved with terminating a pregnancy.
In the pamphlet, the topic of birth control is discussed in a question and answer format. After defining birth control as a “safe and simple way to plan for your children and to have them when you want them,” the question is posed: “Is [birth control] abortion?”
Their answer is astounding for those familiar with the baby-killing mill that Planned Parenthood now represents. But in 1952 they said this about abortion: “Definitely not. An abortion requires an operation. It kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it. Birth control merely postpones the beginning of life (emphasis added).”
