In modern America, few organizations raise as much controversy as Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger, the foundress of Planned Parenthood, started the Little Rock Birth Control Clinic in 1931 to aid women who could not afford a doctor. Since then, the organization spread across America like a wildfire supporting women’s “reproductive rights.” They currently perform one fourth of abortions in America and lead the world in distributing contraceptives.
One study found that women who received an abortion have a “30 percent increase in breast cancer” not to mention the other risks of complications during the abortion itself . These women not only risk their physical health and safety but their mental and emotional wellbeing as well. Post-Abortion Syndrome,PAS, is a common side effect. The condition, especially common in teens, used to describe the emotional and psychological consequences of abortion that affect thousands of women and can lead to anxiety, deep depression, mental and emotional numbing, and even suicide. Contraception and abortion caused cancer, procedure risks, and PAS number just a few of the many turmoils that Planned Parenthood brings to America. They do not fight for women’s health; they fight for women’s suffering.
