In the wake of tragedy and death, Planned Parenthood offers more tragedy and more death

We post 10-13 stories a day at NRL News Today and upwards of 30 stories in our monthly digital edition of National Right to Life News. We run all these posts because, as best we can, we try to cover the waterfront, so to speak, both at home and abroad.

But in offering stem to stern reporting, it’s vitally important that we not overlook stories that tell us something fundamental about the battle you and I are fighting against the forces of death.

An exaggeration, right? Just like (we’re told) no one is “pro-abortion,” surely no one looks at human tragedies with an eye toward increasing the carnage, correct?

No one is “pro-death.”

I beg to differ. And as just one of many pieces of evidence, let me point you in the direction of a story we reposted from Pregnancy Help News. Written by Katie Franklin, the headline reads, “Why Pregnancy Help Centers Matter in the Aftermath of Florence.”

During Hurricane Florence, which has not yet spent itself, over 40 people have already died. Katie offers example after example of pregnancy help centers working hard not to close down lest abortion-minded women wind up in the clutches of the local abortion clinics. “A closed office could mean missed opportunities to help women in need of pregnancy options counseling and material assistance as they ride out the storm,” she writes.


Through the organization’s HALO Fund (Helping Affiliated Life-Affirming Organizations), the network has provided more than $37,000 worth of disaster relief since 2017. From Hurricane Harvey last summer to a fire in Little Rock Arkansas earlier this year, the organization has mobilized its supporters and affiliates to take action through giving.

Where is the abortion industry in times of calamity? The answer tells you pretty much all you need to know about who our opposition is and what powers them.

Katie reminds us of the abortion industry’s “track record of preying on pregnant women in the wake of catastrophes.”

In 2001, Planned Parenthood leapt at the opportunity to offer free abortions in New York City following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11. A few years later, the abortion outlet gave away chemical abortifacients following Hurricane Katrina, and just last year, when Hurricane Harvey swept through the Gulf of Mexico, the pro-abortion Lilith Fund raised money for abortions in Texas.

In the middle of immense tragedy and heartbreak and death, Planned Parenthood and their ilk offer death.

But are you surprised?

Of course not.

That’s what they do because that’s who they are.
