Despite Texas Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis’ attempt to draw sympathy from abortions she claims were for medical reasons, Planned Parenthood has confirmed that the majority of abortions are NOT for medical reasons.
In a Facebook post sent today, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas writes, “Nearly 30% of American women will have an abortion by age 45. And for many of them, medical reasons will have nothing to do with their decision.”
That statement was repeated by Daily Beast reporter Emily Shire in her article on the so-called “good” vs. “Bad” abortion, which the abortion giant was linking.
Shire writes, “Nearly early 30 percent of American women will have an abortion by age 45. And for many of them, medical reasons will have nothing to do with their decision. For a woman to reveal she has had an abortion because she wanted one, because she couldn’t emotionally sacrifice for another child, because she was remiss in her use of contraception, and, further, to declare she has only felt happiness towards her decision is truly groundbreaking. Davis’ abortion narrative has helped diminish the social stigma surrounding abortion. But until the “bad” abortion stories are just as acceptable, pro-choice advocates have a long way to go.”
The idea that ending the life of your own flesh and blood could in any way be considered good is beyond me and hopefully a reason Wendy Davis will never become Governor of Texas. But, Planned Parenthood and the pro-choice, reproductive rights crowd could care less what your abortion reasons are- so long as you are willing to pay for one.
