When people resort to name calling, they often are convicting themselves of the very thing they are accusing the other person of.
So often seems to be the case in the abortion debate.
Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider, claims
pregnancy resource centers provide “false” or “misleading” information to their clients.
As you have probably guessed, the real false information is coming from the abortion giant itself.
Jenni Stone, a Live Action writer, points out the half-truths and other misinformation in Planned Parenthood’s description of fetal development.
According to Planned Parenthood, “’The ball of cells develops into an embryo at the start of the sixth week. The embryonic stage of pregnancy will last about five weeks. During this time all major internal organs begin developing.
• The embryo is less than 1/5 inch (4–5 mm) long.
• A very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.
• Buds for arms and legs develop.
• The neural tube begins forming. The neural tube will later form the brain, spinal cord, and major nerves.
• The bud of a tail develops.
• The umbilical cord begins developing.
“That ‘ball of cells’ is scientifically and biologically a newly conceived human being, but don’t expect Planned Parenthood to ever admit such a thing. The ‘very basic beating heart,’ which isn’t basic in any sense of the word, is pumping blood throughout the baby’s body just 21 days after conception — before the vast majority of women even realize they’re pregnant. By 28 days after conception, an unborn child’s heart is beating about 121 beats per minute. Planned Parenthood claims that ‘the neural tube will later form the brain,’ at 5-6 weeks of pregnancy when, in fact, the brain is the first organ to begin developing. By 3 weeks after conception, the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain can be identified.”
And what are pregnancy resource centers’ alleged inaccuracies? I guess it must be their dedication to informing women about the damaging effects of abortion and about the precious, unique life that is growing inside of them.
Sounds like another instance of name-calling for Planned Parenthood.
