One of my friends from Hillsdale alerted me to a remarkable find on Free Republic: a 1964 Planned Parenthood brochure, which in the course of promoting birth control, contrasts it with abortion, which PP says “An abortion kills the life of the baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it” (emphasis added).
Today, though, they sidestep the “life” question, instead making the issue “personhood,” which nobody really has a final answer for…but “what we are all sure about is that a pregnant woman is a person.”
What a difference a few decades makes…especially a few decades in which science has made PP’s original conclusion crystal clear.
