In J. R. R. Tolkien‘s The Hobbit, Bard the Bowman achieves the amazing feat of killing Smaug, the dragon, by shooting an arrow into the one unarmored place on the dragon’s underside.  Similarly pro-life people throughout our country have shot an arrow into Planned Parenthood’s one vulnerable spot. This spot is the revelation of the truth of what this nefarious organization is really all about.  As more and more people become aware of this truth we will eventually see the ugly dragon Planned Parenthood fall.

Abby Johnson, former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic, became aware of this truth on the day she was exposed “face –to-face with the mangled brutality of the ultrasound guided abortion, so I could see the destruction of life with my own eyes.”

The truth of the horrible grief of so many post-abortive mothers and fathers is also coming to light.  As one of Planned Parenthood’s surviving victims wrote, “Now over 40 years later, I wish someone had shown me there were alternatives to abortion and that there were consequences, too. I wish I’d been asked what I wanted to do. I wish I’d known the death I would feel inside most of my life from the choices that I made.”

As the largest provider of abortion in the United States, Planned Parenthood must acknowledge the piercing truth that under its influence we are slowly committing national suicide.  Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in the United States the equivalent of 18% of the national population has died by abortion. This truth cuts much deeper for minority populations which Planned Parenthood has targeted from its inception.  African American women are estimated to have had 16 million abortions since 1973—the equivalent of 44% of the current African American population. (  Planned Parenthood is achieving the goal of Margaret Sanger, its racist eugenicist foundress, who once wrote, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

Let the truth of what Planned Parenthood is really doing go out and bring about its demise.
