Planned Parenthood, the major abortion provider in the United States, informed a carefully selected media conference on 9th January that the Association was abandoning the label “Pro-choice”. Planned Parenthood is the leading abortion provider responsible for the deaths of countless thousands of unborn children each year in the United States. It can be expected that the remaining organisations in the abortion movement will follow suit.
This dramatic move is a further retreat by the pro-abortion movement that has been losing the battle for the minds and the hearts of the people since the Roe Wade decision of the Supreme Court in the United States 40 years ago.
The label supports a culture of death with the false and dangerous term “a woman’s right to choose.” There is no ‘right’ to kill another person. It is always wrong to kill the innocent. A woman has an absolute right not to get pregnant, but when she is pregnant she does not have the right to kill her child in the womb. In the biblical book, Deuteronomy it says, I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. As a society, we must do all we can to help women choose life for their children.
