The president of Planned Parenthood, Alexis McGill Johnson, recently told an interviewer that the sky is the limit when it comes to the care PP offers its patients. Specifically, when asked about gender-affirming care, she said, “We know that providing gender-affirming care is important for health and well-being, particularly for trans and non-binary teens.”
McGill Johnson speaks of a twisted sort of healthcare that I never thought would be news during my lifetime. But as we know, times have changed as more and more people have decided that they know better than God what it means to be created in His image and likeness.
McGill Johnson is the same person who once explained that aborting a baby can be life-saving! So now not only do we see that healthcare kills preborn children because they have become a condition that requires treatment, but we see that healthcare is also treating gender as if it were a disease.
If this sounds bizarre, we hasten to remind you that we live in an age where anything goes as long as what is going is the truth handed to us by God Himself. If this were not the case, Planned Parenthood would not be going from one state to another trying to secure access to killing babies by amending state constitutions. So let’s back up and take a look at the steps that led to this most recent abyss.
In the 1960s, science handed us the pill, and with fanfare it assured us: “For the first time, women were free to enjoy spontaneous sex without fear of pregnancy. Today, it’s estimated that more than 10 million women use the pill.”
Before that momentous occasion, women and men were using other materials such as acacia in the quest to have sex without consequences. But why?
Well, as it turns out, the natural phenomenon we recognize as pregnancy went through its own metamorphosis when people like Dr. Kenneth Ryan, who was an early advocate of experimentation on human embryos, said in 1967 that “unwanted pregnancy is a ‘disease with far reaching effects.’” He was followed by Dr. Willard Cates of the Centers for Disease Control who claimed that abortion was 10 times more effective in treating the “disease” of an unwanted pregnancy than penicillin was for treating a venereal disease like gonorrhea.
While we could go on, there is a clear and present danger in our midst today, and it took root when the early harbingers of doom sank their talons into the science of human genetics by explaining that men are not necessarily men nor are women actually female. Yes, I am talking about gender bending, and Planned Parenthood is all in for that game as well.
Clearly the manipulation of public opinion—not to mention the physical and emotional state of confused youth—is part of their agenda. I do not want to delve into the contrived thinking behind Planned Parenthood’s sex and gender explanations, but we can provide an example. This is found on its website: “Assigned sex is a label that you’re given at birth.”
Say what? In an age of creative biology and demonic gender shaming, it is clear that where money can be made by brainwashing and deceiving people, Planned Parenthood and its ilk are all in. Biology is out the window, and cruelty has become number one on the menu.
These brief samples of Margaret Sanger’s legacy remind us of one thing that should be crystal clear to anyone who ever took a biology 101 class in high school: Nature cannot be mocked.
God’s designs are not up for grabs, no matter what the charlatans of the day may be selling. The devastation they have wrought is all around us.
We travel into this abyss with a message of hope, proclaiming the truth as so beautifully stated by Susan Ciancio:
The Church knows that you can only be fully happy if you love yourself for who God made you to be. He did not make a mistake when He created you either male or female. He created you in His image, and He loves you. This is true whether or not you choose to believe it.
Because of this truth, we want you to know there are options for finding the contentment you seek in the body you were given.
This affirmative message is not the sort of thing Planned Parenthood would provide, but it is the truth that can and does bring peace to a soul.
