Propaganda: information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view. The definition says it all. Planned Parenthood has an agenda that consists of propaganda in order to promote their insanity. Not only are they the nation’s number one abortion provider, ending lives by stopping the hearts of an estimated 300,000 preborn children every year, they have determined that their warped sense of public responsibility includes polluting the minds of preschoolers. Sadly, there are parents who agree with them and jump on the bandwagon in an attempt to alter proven and incontrovertible science. (Please forgive me if the remainder of this blog contains some sensitive words!)
Baby boys are born baby boys. They have a penis and testicles. Their natural anatomy is the result of their specific gender determined at the moment they were conceived when the sperm and egg met and began to multiply. This is when life as a little boy or a little girl began.
Likewise, baby girls are born baby girls. They have a vulva and a vagina. Their natural anatomy is the result of their specific gender determined at the moment they were conceived, etc. Their life began as a little girl and no scientific or medical procedure can alter the fact that they are genetically female.
God had a specific purpose in mind when He created male and female. There were no other genders in the mind of God. He didn’t make a mistake by not creating boys with vulvas and vaginas or girls with a penis and testicles. There was a distinct difference–there is still a distinct difference.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27 emphasis added)
Now, all of a sudden, along comes Planned Parenthood already exercising illegitimate power over life and death of a preborn child. Now, they take their god complex to a new level by insisting that a child’s natural gender has nothing to do with what that child actually feels or believes about himself or herself.
“While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl,” the organization says. “Boy, girl, man and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities ‘boy’ or ‘man’ have vulvas, and some with the gender identity ‘girl’ or ‘woman’ have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.”¹
Perhaps it’s an old-fashioned approach to life and gender identity, but if a child emerges from the womb with male anatomy, that child is a male and will always be a male regardless what that child or anyone else thinks. Gender identity is synonymous with genital identity. Anything to the contrary is garbage propaganda.
An organization such as Planned Parenthood that promotes the murder of preborn children has already proven beyond a shadow of a doubt they have no respect for life at any stage of development–preborn or born. How can we, as parents, allow an organization with such disregard for human life speak such lies into the little impressionable hearts of our preschoolers? Who has given Planned Parenthood the right to teach such heresy to our children?
As bluntly as I can put it, we have!
We have allowed this garbage to continue to propagate by our silence. We have hidden in the shadows for fear of upsetting people or seeming to be cold-hearted. We have allowed our voice to remain silent out of fear, not wanting to get involved, shutting out the cries of those desperately looking for help while Planned Parenthood is right there willing to be an answer that is, to be truthful, no answer at all. We personally haven’t offered alternatives to the troubled mother or family by opening our hearts and homes to them in their time of need. We have allowed this while the propaganda has been empowered by those who have no regard for the sanctity of life. We have ourselves to blame for the rise to power over the issues of life enjoyed by Planned Parenthood. And, the problem is continuing to grow; it’s likely we haven’t seen the end of their heresy.
Planned Parenthood is not about to fade away. Neither are they about to stop their attempts to influence the next generation with their propaganda. They won’t quit until we fill the gap they have found in the emotional, psychological and spiritual void which encourages women to look to them for help. They won’t quit until we give them no alternative through legal processes, until we speak up and get involved, until we consistently elect committed politicians who are bold and ready to stand firm for the sanctity of life. And, until we get seriously involved through targeted prayer and intercession, our children will remain at risk of believing the lies and garbage propaganda of Planned Parenthood and organizations like them.
As parents, it is our responsibility to teach our little ones about their body and sexuality at appropriate times in their lives. Schools are for learning how to navigate through life using skills such as math and reading and understanding history and sciences. They are not the place for influencing impressionable minds with nonsense like gender identity that is contrary to their genital identity.
Planned Parenthood is branching out beyond the abortion business to circumvent the family institution and rob parents of their sacred responsibility to influence the heart and mind of their children. Even if people agree with abortion on demand, this alone should be enough for everyone, pro-choice or pro-life, to demand they stop.
We, as Christians, must get involved now, before the garbage propaganda promoted by Planned Parenthood and similar organizations continue to impact our generation and the next with their deception. The time for sitting idly by while this godless agenda alters the course of families in the future is past.
