Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, in a Recent ‘Time’ Article, Said it’s Time to Talk about Abortion (2015)

We agree. Let’s talk. In fact, the pro-life movement has been talking about abortion since before Roe v. Wade, all the time inviting the American public to talk about it with us. The ironic fact is that Ms. Richards and the rest of the abortion lobby have spent the last 40-plus years not wanting to talk about abortion. They have not wanted to describe it, look at it, or even mention the word. They have spoken about reproductive rights, privacy, and choice, but not about abortion. Actually, in spite of what Ms. Richards writes, they still don’t really want to talk about abortion itself. For instance, have any of Cecile Richards’s speeches or comments described an abortion procedure? Has she explained the commonly used D&E procedure by quoting Warren Hern’s textbook Abortion Practice, where he describes it as dismemberment and decapitation? No, she hasn’t. Not only do abortion supporters still not want to talk about the procedure itself, they also still don’t want to talk about the target of abortion. Kansas recently enacted a law protecting unborn children from dismemberment abortion. In the Senate debate, the only two Senators to speak up against the measure were Marci Francisco (D-Lawrence) and David Haley (D-Kansas City). One might think they rose to speak about the law being debated, and what it would prohibit. But neither spoke about the actual activity the law would prohibit. Not a word. So again, “pro-choicers” pretend to talk about abortion, but don’t. Unless we start the dialogue on abortion by talking about abortion itself, we are only having a pretend discussion. The national debate not only...

Henry Morgentaler runs 8 abortion businesses in seven Canadian cities… Waiting a month or more for an abortion can significantly increase the risk of complications, he said. "It is accepted medical knowledge that every week of delay in obtaining an abortion increases the risk of complications by 20 percent,'' he said.  [Canadian Press 23June00] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [WEBA, Women Exploited by Abortion author] No matter what Planned Parenthood says about "freedom of choice," their counselors routinely refuse to tell women the "truth" about abortion and the trail of devastation that it leaves behind. If women, who are contemplating an abortion, are going to carry their abortion experience with them for the rest of their lives, they should at least, be given the opportunity to make an informed decision. The main  reason  abortions  are  continuing  today  at a  soaring  rate  is  because  of  the  propagated lie that abortions  are painless and that  women do not suffer emotional trauma.  It is the group  Women Exploited By Abortion's genuine concern to expose this lie and cover-up. As far  back  as  October 19, 1959,  Mary  Carlderone,  who  was  then  the  medical   director  for  Planned Parenthood said, "Aside from the fact that abortion is the 'taking of a life,' I am mindful of what was brought out by our psychiatrists  that in  almost every case of abortion,  whether legal or illegal,  is a traumatic experience that may have severe kickbacks later on." Dr. Julius Fogel,  a certified  psychiatrist,  as well  as an  abortionist  who's  admitted  to  personally killing in excess of 20,000 babies said during an interview published in the April 13, 1989, issue of the...
