Have you wised up yet, Sarah?

I'd say probably not.

Somebody was searching for Sarah Ghezaili. She's one of the folks who signed the Planned Parenthood petition to try to keep women ignorant and properly fed into the chute for the abortion mills Sarah added her own comment: "It is absolutely appalling that people need to take advantage of women who are seeking help and guidance to further their anti-choice cause."

Ah, but taking advantage of women seeking help and guidance in order to further the pro-abortion cause, and to make a buck, is okay, I'm assuming.

The whole campaign was a hoax in the first place. Does that bother you, Sarah? That you were punked by PP? Or does the fact that they're campions of "choice" excuse them?

Take a look at some of the things PP has done and tell me if you still think they're such nice people:

  • Planned Parenthood Association of Central and Northern Arizona performed two abortions in 1998 on a 13-year-old girl who was in foster care and being abused by her 23-year-old foster brother. PP performed the abortions without notifying either the girl's parents, foster parents, or Child Protective Service, leaving her subject to continued abuse. They sent another patient home, after inadequate informed consent; she expelled her dead 12-week fetus at home and got to learn the hard way, after the fact, exactly what it was the abortion killed. An employee reported this PP for puncturing a woman's uterus trying to vacuum out an ectopic pregnancy, among other wrongdoing.

  • Planned Parenthood of New York City was cited by inspectors for inadequate equipment, inadequately trained staff, unregistered nurse-anesthetists, and just general griminess. They've been sued multiple times for injuring women.

  • Planned Parenthood of Mid-Michigan was sued for trying to abort a baby in the third trimester, resulting in the premature birth of an injured child. Their negligence nearly killed a woman who actually had an ectopic pregnancy.

  • Planned Parenthood of San Francisco managed to perform an abortion without killing the baby -- they just ripped off an arm and a leg. When the still-living, though maimed, fetus was discovered in a later ultrasound, the mother underwent a second abortion, and was left traumatized.

  • Planned Parenthood of San Diego told my babysitter her 8-week fetus was "just like a blood clot" thus tricking her into consenting to an unwanted abortion. They waited until after the abortion to do 1:1 counseling and learn that the pregnancy in question was planned and wanted and only being aborted because her mom had threatened to throw her out. Then they took this girl, who wanted to get pregnant and was too squeamish about touching herself to even use tampons, and fitted her with a diaphragm. Needless to say, she was quickly pregnant again, and quickly forced into another abortion by her mother.

    And how about the women who have died because they trusted Planned Parenthood?

    Who should we be investigating, Sarah? Who should we be shutting down? Will you ever get tired of the lies and deception? Or will you cling to the abortion lobby's idea that it's better to be killed by prochoicers than to be shown yucky picturs by prolifers?

    I think what most everyone does not realize is that pro-choice does not mean pro-abortion. Don't get yourself confused. I myself am pro-choice, but under no circumstance does that make me pro-abortion. It simply means that if - after taking proper precautionary measures of course and still ending up pregnant - I cannot provide for another human being or my pregnancy was the result of rape, then yes, I believe abortion is better than trying to care for someone else when you can't even care for yourself. This does not, in any way, mean that abortion should be used as a form of contraception. That is wrong and irresponsible and if that's how a person is going to handle a situation such as that, then they probably shouldn't be having sex in the first place. However, under some circumstances I believe that abortion may be the right choice for a woman, but it is the type of thing that needs to be well thought out because playing God is dangerous and can often result in an outcome that you may regret.
    I guess what I'm trying to say is that being pro-choice isn't pro-death. It gives women...not to mention men as well...options. Be it life or death for the fetus. I think we can all agree on one thing here, though, and that's that we don't want to have a situation where a child is growing up in and out of foster homes simply because someone was not taking responsibility for their actions and now because of that, an innocent child must suffer. I know far too many people that grew up in foster care or simply had a bad upbringing because their parents didn't understand what they were doing when they ended up getting pregnant. So don't criticize those who are pro-choice simply because having a child right then and there isn't right for them at that moment. But don't confuse that with having an abortion just for the sake of it. We're not all horrible, thoughtless human beings. And the same way the you say those who are pro-choice are manipulative, those who are pro-life can be just as, if not more, manipulative. It's true that some people may have their own agenda in that situation, but for the most part I believe everyone has the best intentions at heart and ultimately it's my choice what I do or do not do with my body. The same way you may believe in pro-life, I believe in having the right and the option of making my own, well-thought out decision because in the end it's my body, my choice. You don't have to like it, or respect it even, but at the very least understand it. I think everyone deserves that much when it comes to something as life-altering as child birth.

    Also, do your research and be smart when it comes to a decision such as this. Know what you're doing and be smart about it. Obviously if a place is under investigation or is clearly shady and not up to par then don't go there. It all comes back to thinking it through and making wise decisions when you're face to face with a dilemma such as that.

    Lindsay, I make a pretty clear distinction between ordinary prochoice people, and the abortion lobby, which is proabortion behind a carefully built prochoice fascade.

    I'd love to see the truly proCHOICE build their own advocacy network.
