One YouTube viewer comments:
And relating to the video; these kids didn't make much sense, but how about you interview people actually in charge of Planned Parenthood instead of using a few unprepared comments by some undereducated undergrads at an obscure college to analyze the intentions of Planned Parenthood?
Yeah, those kids are pretty ignorant. How did they get to be that dumb? Were they dropped on their heads as babies? Did they eat a lot of paint chips? Are they all recovering from acute alcohol poisoning? No. There's no organic brain dysfunction to explain this level of idiocy. These are all college students, fairly bright to start with. Then what happened to make a bunch of bright kids into such laughable morons?
Here's where we get to the real point: These kids are members of "Advocates for Choice", a Planned Parenthood college outreach. Those kids, who "didn't make much sense", were trained and "educated" by Planned Parenthood. This video shows us very clearly what the best "educated" and "trained" youth come away from Planned Parenthood with: not only staggering ignorance, but blithe over-confidence in their misinformation and ignorance.
It took a lot of work to make those kids that stupid. Work that was paid for by your tax dollars.
Planned Parenthood is the single largest provider of sex education in communities across the United States. Every year, Planned Parenthood physicians and nurses see nearly 675,000 teenagers who come to our health centers to get help in making informed decisions about their sexual health.
And what are they being taught?
And the topper:
How do we see this promotion of ignorance in other contexts? Let's go to a completely other state, in a completely other context:
So the "education" Planned Parenthood provides a prospective abortion patient includes the following "facts":
Let's go ahead and assume that the patient is at the 6-week end of this window. I've blogged already about 6-week embryos.
MayoClinic.com notes these developmental milestones:
Just four weeks after conception [6 weeks LMP, the way pregnancy is calculated], .... your baby's heart is beating with a regular rhythm.
Basic facial features will begin to appear, including an opening for the mouth and passageways that will make up the inner ear. The digestive and respiratory systems begin to form as well.
The Visible Embryo notes the following:
Head and Neck
Brain is well marked by its cerebral hemispheres. ....
Primary cardiac tube separates into aortic and pulmonary channels and the ventricular pouches deepen and enlarge, forming a common wall with their myocardial shells. ....
Hand region of upper limb bud differentiates further to form a central carpal part and a digital plate. The thigh ..., leg ... and foot areas can be distinguished in the lower limb buds.
Let's go back to The Visible Embryo and see what would be happening if she's a bit further along in that 6 - 8 week window:
All this is pretty remarkable in an embryo that's "nothing developed" and has "no legs, no arms, no head, no brain, no heart."
(Also, note the "non-directive counseling" urging her to "go with abortion." That an abortion is the default choice, and that continuing the pregnancy is something "you'd really have to think about." The "non-directive counseling" urging her to make a decision quickly, when it's "cheaper" and "won't stress you out as much.")
The ignorance displayed in the Colorado video isn't some flukey thing, just a bunch of dumb kids who picked up a Planned Parenthood brochure and declared themselves to be spokespersons. The ignorance displayed in that video is something Planned Parenthood deliberately plants, nourishes, and cultivates. At taxpayer expense.
The first time I was exposed to the way PP promotes ignorance was back in 1983, when my babysitter told me about her first abortion. It was at Planned Parenthood in San Diego. She had specifically asked about "the baby". She was told that her 8-week unborn baby was "like a blood clot". Does that 8-week fetus to the right look like a blood clot to you?
It seems nothing has changed from 1983 -- except that now, people are recording PP's lies and calling them out on it.
It's about time!
