Planned Parenthood is brazen in their never-ending drive to promote the death of as many unborn children as possible. I’m still not sure why “parenthood” is in their name --- how exactly do they promote parenting?
Planned Parenthood is very efficient at their business, killing 321,384 unborn babies last year alone --- more than the number of American soldiers killed in World War I, Korea and Vietnam combined.
Sure, Planned Parenthood provides some of the other female “health services” that they always tout, but according to its own annual report, there is an across-the-board drop in the number of women using those “services.” Yet, those services are the reason they continue to justify federal funding.
With the declining number of women using Planned Parenthood’s health services, the organization has to up its game in recruiting abortions, because those procedures make the most money. So, their latest tactic is a Virtual Reality short film called “Across the Line” that follows a fictional young woman making her way into an abortion clinic.
The young woman character endures cruel protesters who hurl insults and confront her about her choice. According to Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president, the purpose of the Virtual Reality film is to build empathy for young women making the brave choice to have an abortion.
Most of the talk about empathy in the abortion debate is totally misplaced.
Many women do face a serious plight with their pregnancy. There are complicated circumstances, abuse, absentee fathers --- and women often feel abandoned and hopeless. But Planned Parenthood's use of VR technology to convince women that killing their baby is the best solution is wrong. It’s also a lie. There is a better alternative. Planned Parenthood knows it, but would rather use Virtual Reality to advance its abortion campaign.
They know an ultrasound creates a very different kind of empathy in the mother who hears her baby’s heartbeat and sees movement on the screen. Those mothers are much more likely to choose life. That’s why Planned Parenthood’s “empathy” efforts will continue to use technology only as it helps them fulfill their abortion quotas.
Ultimately, most of the talk about empathy in the abortion debate is totally misplaced, especially when it comes from Planned Parenthood. Their narrative only focuses on empathy for the mother struggling with whether or not to kill her unborn child and no empathy for the equally valuable and defenseless life in her womb.
