Planned Parenthood Misrepresents Hobby Lobby’s Issue Regarding Birth Control

Planned Parenthood – that bastion of truth, liberty, and the American Way! (uh, sure) – has once again misrepresented actual facts and this time it has to do with the Hobby Lobby case that is scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Planned Parenthood is doing their best to get the word out via scare tactics to all their followers.

Check this out from Planned Parenthood:

On March 25, the Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments in a pair of cases that challenge the birth control benefit — Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v. Sebelius and Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. In each of these cases, employers at for-profit corporations want to deny their employees the right to have insurance coverage that includes birth control, because of the employers’ personal religious beliefs.

I’ve added emphasis to the last line because it’s important to note that this is part of the deliberate deception by Planned Parenthood. For the record, the folks at Hobby Lobby do not have an issue with birth control. What they have an issue with goes beyond birth control to the mandate that requires employers to provide employees access to abortion-inducing drugs. This is a huge difference, one that Planned Parenthood wants to completely gloss over.

Traditionally, birth control has been recognized as that type of medication or contraceptive device that keeps a woman from becoming pregnant. Abortion-inducing drugs deal with the situation after a woman has already become pregnant. It’s like an abortion clinic without having to go to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. That is what the Christian owners of Hobby Lobby take issue with and that is why they are taking their case to the Supreme Court.

Planned Parenthood simply groups abortion-inducing drugs together with what has always been known as traditional birth control methods. In reality, abortion-inducing drugs are not birth control. They are drugs that cause the death of an unborn child that has already been conceived. But why bother Planned Parenthood with the facts? In fact, why bother the left at all with the facts? Facts seem to have no impact whatsoever on the left. They easily shove those pesky facts aside like an annoying fly.

But to make matters worse, Planned Parenthood really goes into scare tactic mode with their next paragraph:

But this case goes beyond birth control — if the Court rules in favor of Hobby Lobby/Conestoga, it would open the door for corporations to make other important medical decisions for their employees (access to vaccines, blood transfusions, mental health care, and more), or to exempt themselves from other federal and state laws.

Not only would this not happen, but it couldn’t happen, because Hobby Lobby’s issue has to do with the murder of an unborn child, plain and simple. Normal, traditional birth control does not kill anything. Again, it simply keeps the woman from becoming pregnant. Abortion-inducing drugs kill an already conceived child. That is murder and that is what Hobby Lobby objects to being forced to provide for their employees.

There is absolutely no way that – should Hobby Lobby win this case – it would “open the door for corporations to make other important medical decisions…” It’s absurd to even think that would occur, but Planned Parenthood has a lot to lose if Hobby Lobby wins, so they lie and scare people using misrepresentation.

Abortion is a moral decision because it involves the cessation of existing life. Hobby Lobby does not want to have any part of that. If their employees choose to have an abortion on their own with their own money, that’s up to that employee. Hobby Lobby simply does not want to become partner to murder.

Planned Parenthood understands that, but will not admit it. They’ve been murdering so long that to them, it’s not really even murder anymore.

Planned Parenthood needs to come clean and admit that they’re using lies and scare tactics to try to make the Supreme Court rule against Hobby Lobby and give Planned Parenthood a victory. That’s the biggest problem though because the Supreme Court should make decisions not based on a supposed “majority” of people and what they think. The court is supposed to make decisions based on existing law that is also supposed to be based on the Constitution.

This is how far America has fallen, where decisions are being made based on popular opinion. That is nothing less than emotional virtue and is nothing more than political correctness. If America does not change that course, America is sunk.

Join me in praying that the Supreme Court will do the right thing and rule in favor of Hobby Lobby, while ignoring the demands of pagan groups like Planned Parenthood, will you? I thank you and Hobby Lobby thanks you.

Let’s pray for a victory for the rule of law!
