This past weekend marked the 100 year anniversary of Planned Parenthood. Apparently, those at Planned Parenthood believe this event is something to be celebrated.  I really don’t see the correlation between celebration and taking the lives of millions of unborn babies. I am staunchly pro-life.  In fact, it’s one of the most defining characteristics of my conservative alignment.  When Planned Parenthood’s 100th birthday came around, it was a strong reminder of the millions of babies who were mercilessly aborted by this organization.

It’s been 100 years. 100 years of abusing the rights of each valuable life in the womb that has crossed into your offices and been aborted. Time and time again, your organization deceives women into making decisions that not only alter their lives, but take the lives of the child inside them. The most anti-women group of them all.  You hide behind the misnomer of a women’s advocate group to push your agenda.

I believe that all life is valuable and worthy of protection – not just because I am a Christian, but because of science. Does the visibility of the eyes at week eight or the formation of toes at week nine not count in the assessment of whether it is a life? What about the formation of the head at week seven? Or let’s talk about the heartbeat. A new study has found that a baby’s heartbeat can begin just sixteen days after conception. If life ends when a heartbeat stops, shouldn’t life begin when the heartbeat starts?

I don’t believe in deciding that a child should be given the chance at life based on its convenience. You don’t get to decide if a life is valuable or not based on how comfortable it is to be having a baby at that given moment. One’s convenience does not negate the worth of that life. To say anything different is simply ludicrous.

I am pro-life because babies in the womb deserves a chance. I am pro-life because babies in the womb have rights. And I am pro-life because my parents chose life, even when doctors told them not to. My parents decided that no matter what the doctors said, no matter what birth defects my twin sister and I could have if we made it through the pregnancy, we deserved a chance at life. We made it through, without any of the birth defects, I might add. Just because a baby is in the womb does not mean it does not have rights.  The right to life.

I will always fight for life. Planned Parenthood silences the voices of millions of unborn babies.  Planned Parenthood will never silence me. I am part of the pro-life generation.  We are here to fight on behalf of every child that never stood a chance against your evil practices, and we intend to win.
