David Ripley: Planned Parenthood Head Devalues Human Life

October 27th, 2010 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, made explicit what many of us already knew: Planned Parenthood is part of a larger anti-human coalition best identified under the banner of radical environmentalism.

In a radio interview this week, Richards argued that public funding of her organization was good public policy because eliminating new children meant fewer demands on other government services. It was part of a public relations campaign to increase her group’s share of the slaughtered pig known as “ObamaCare”.

The power of her argument, like many other evil ideologies, is that there is a certain simplistic logic to it.

But a little reflection should alarm average persons of decency. At the core of her thinking is the failure to recognize the immeasurable worth and value of each human being. People are mere commodities in Richards’ world.

Even if you are one of those who don’t put much stock in the value of each person because we are created in God’s image, you should still be anxious about the implications of Richards’ argument.

“Demographics is destiny”, as the axiom goes – and America’s declining birth rate, spurred by Richards’ abortion business, has profound economic implications. An ageing population and shrinking productive labor pool portends some very difficult economic shrinkage on the horizon.

Richards fails to appreciate not only fundamental spiritual truths but the economic ones as well. Destroying babies in the womb destroys consumers, producers, entrepreneurs and vast potential talent.
