The nation’s largest abortion provider, in what can only be understood as a slip or an unintended admission of truth, owned up to the fact that unborn babies are, in fact, babies.
In November, Planned Parenthood published a video — “How Do I Talk With My Kids About Where Babies Come From?” — that has gone largely unnoticed by the media. In the three-minute video, which is geared toward preschoolers, the narrator urges parents to be “simple and direct” in their communication about reproduction.
She encourages parents to tell their young children a “baby grows in a parent’s belly and comes out their vagina.” And if children are eager for more information, the narrator said to tell them, “If sperm and egg meet, they can grow into a baby.”
The animated video never once mentions abortion. However, resources for older children do cover abortion, which Planned Parenthood describes as the “ending of a pregnancy” — not a baby’s life.
Interestingly, given the verbiage Planned Parenthood uses in the video for preschoolers, a person could naturally — and rightly — conclude abortion is, in fact, ending a baby’s life.
Despite the fact Planned Parenthood clinicians have performed millions upon millions of abortions since the organization’s inception, the new president of the women’s health care provider has gone out of her way to avoid talking about abortion.
In a November interview on “CBS This Morning,” Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen — the first doctor to helm the organization in more than 100 years — was neither asked about the morality of abortion nor did she volunteer her perspective on the topic, according to National Review.
Wen did, however, mention she is “deeply concerned” about states placing restrictions on abortion access.
As for why parents would need to discuss these issues — abortion, reproductive health care, pregnancy — with preschoolers, Planned Parenthood’s website states it’s never too early, even though “your child is a long way off from deciding whether or not to having a baby.”
