My wife, Kathy, who is demonstrably smarter than I am (she went to college and graduated; I didn't) has a question about the underlying logic and the overall truthfulness of an ad from Planned Parenthood. Yea, I know what you're thinking; Planned Parenthood would lie? Murder maybe, but would they go so far as to utter an untruth?

You go girl:

"After your bleeding period is over, your body starts producing estrogen, and the ovaries are being primed for ovulation.

...If the cervical fluid becomes fertile up to five days prior to ovulation and you have sexual intercourse, the sperm can live inside your fallopian tube during this time. For example, you can have sexual intercourse on Monday and not ovulate until Friday but still conceive. The chances of conceiving a girl are greater this way because female sperm tend to live longer than male sperm.

Given the fact that sperm can live up to five days inside a womans body, the egg only lives 12 to 24 hours. Rarely, a second egg will pop out 24 hours after the first. So tentatively there is about a week long window for conception to occur."

I also looked up the morning after pill on Planned Parenthood’s site.

Planned parenthood says the Morning After Pill can prevent pregnancy up to five days after you have sex. It says the pregnancy cannot happen because the hormones in the pill causes a thickness in the cervical mucus and that thickness prevents sperm from getting to the egg. It also thins the lining of the uterus which may prevent the egg from attaching to it. They specifically say this pill is not abortion; however, if the sperm can live inside the fallopian tubes for five days it can already be fertilizing the egg before you take this pill. Am I correct? If that is the case and you prevent the fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus, isn’t that technically an abortion?

They say on their YouTube commercial, if you are already pregnant it won’t have any affect on the pregnancy. But, if the egg has been fertilized and not yet attached, won’t this prevent the pregnancy from going to term? Can you check on it?"

The ad from Planned Parenthood says that a woman can take this pill up to five days after sex. They go on to say that it does not cause an abortion. Beyond Fertility states that there is a five day period after sex that conception can occur. The site further claims that the egg and sperm will join together within 24 hours after ovulation occurs.

I'm no doctor but a lack of qualification has never stopped me from saying anything. Just this one time however, I'm going to let someone that actually knows what they're talking about say something:

"Dr. Jerome Lejeune, father of modern genetics. To accept the fact, that after fertilization has taken place, a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion. The human nature of the human being from conception to old age is not a metaphysical condition. It is plain experimental evidence. Each of us has a unique beginning, the moment of conception. As soon as the 23 chromosomes carried by the sperm encounter the 23 chromosomes carried by the ovum, the whole information necessary and sufficient to spell out all the characteristics of the new being is gathered. A new human being is defined which has never occurred before and will never occur again. It is not simply a non descript cell, or a population or loose collection of cells, but a very specialized individual."

So if we are to take Dr. Lejeune at his word then we know that at the moment of conception, the point where the egg and sperm join together, human DNA is created and all that is necessary for human life is present in the unborn child. This being the case, if a woman were to take the Morning After pill 3 days after sex and the egg and sperm had combined in the interim an abortion would in fact be the result. It would not just be birth control, as Planned Parenthood states in their video. She would be forcing her body to expel a fertilized egg; a new human life.

So I guess the people at Planned Parenthood are not just murderers, they're lying murderers!

  1. They are redefining when life begins so they can "Sell" their pills and potions and make the big profits. There is a documentary which was released last year which will open the eyes of anyone interested in the roots and founders of Planned Parenthood. It is called Maafa21 - get a preview (trailer) here:
