Planned Parenthood Celebrates Roe vs. Wade Decision, 60 Million Abortions

The nation’s largest abortion business celebrated 45 years of abortion on demand today.

On Jan. 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade turned America into one of the most pro-abortion countries in the world. Approximately 60 million unborn babies and counting have died as a result. And the abortion giant Planned Parenthood is fighting to keep it that way.

Planned Parenthood posted a series of comments on its social media platforms today highlighting the infamous ruling and calling for even more permissive abortion laws in the U.S.

Struggling to gain support with young voters, the abortion chain specifically targeted young adults using the story of pro-abortion attorneys Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee. Both were quite young when they argued Roe in front of the Supreme Court.

Of course, the abortion chain left out the part about how the two attorneys manipulated another young woman, Norma McCorvey, or “Jane Roe,” to push their pro-abortion agenda. McCorvey later became pro-life and worked to overturn the case that bears her name before she died.

Planned Parenthood also manipulated the anniversary by claiming that America heavily restricts abortions. This is just not true. The United States is one of only seven nations that permits elective abortions past 20 weeks a fact confirmed by the Washington Post fact checker.

Yet, Time magazine allowed Dawn Laguens, vice president of Planned Parenthood, to claim this week:

Since the day Roe was decided, anti-abortion extremists in Congress and statehouses have been chipping away at the ruling, imposing their personal beliefs on everyone else. Since 2010, state politicians have passed 338 laws making it harder for doctors and clinicians to provide abortions and forcing women to jump through hoops to get them. These include forcing women to wait up to 72 hours before terminating a pregnancy, to be given misleading information or undergo a medically unnecessary ultrasounds. The Supreme Court ruled in 2016 that many of these laws are unconstitutional, yet they remain on the books.

In another post, Planned Parenthood pushed to force taxpayers to fund abortions.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

“Rise up for Roe,” the post read. “Restricting Medicaid coverage of abortion forces 1 in 4 poor women seeking abortion to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term.”

It also attacked pro-life lawmakers, including Vice President Mike Pence, and the whole state of Texas, which is fighting valiantly to protect unborn babies.

Planned Parenthood wants to take America back to the early days after Roe when women and girls could have their unborn babies aborted for any reason up to birth, when girls did not have to tell their parents that they were having an abortion, when abortion facilities could refuse to give women any information about abortion risks or alternatives, when abortion clinic regulations were few and back alley abortionists like Kermit Gosnell moved onto Main Street.

The abortion industry under Roe v. Wade has wreaked havoc and devastation on America. Since 1973, 60 million unborn babies have been killed and countless women have been scarred physically and emotionally. Planned Parenthood wants to push America back into the past, but pro-life advocates are working to create a brighter future for unborn babies and mothers. Abortion numbers are dropping and abortion facilities are closing their doors as more young people realize the devastation of Roe. Passionately, young adults are fighting for a future where all human lives will be protected and valued.
