Planned Parenthood & The Cult Mentality - Open Series

Written by Life Defenders in collaboration with other pro-life activists 
We’ve been reflecting on the defence of Planned Parenthood a lot lately & it occurred to us just how much it can be likened to a cult mentality. Coming to the realization of this dangerous correlation was so disturbing that we felt it needed to be written about.
Here’s how it relates :  1: Planned Parenthood attacks the family by pitting mothers against their unborn children and calling it health care.

2:  People are looking for something to belong to, a place where they fit in. Planned Parenthood gives people a feeling of solidarity and like they are part of a tribe. When you attack PP, people take it personally as if you are attacking them, even though you're not.

My parents had a rocky marriage. Ten years of tantrums, toddlers, fighting, and dealing with the clash of cultures and strong personalities, trouble boiled over to the point of breaking. My mother had plans to leave but began to feel sick. A year prior, her gallbladder had been removed, and in the late 70s, the 18-inch incision took about that long to heal.
She was barley passable.
At the first sign of distress, she assumed she was experiencing more issues related to digestion, but the doctor insisted she take a pregnancy test. With her first and second-born children aged seven and eight years old, she had absolutely no plans to have another child.
Divorce was on the horizon, and a job with the local post office was hiring.
A baby was not what my mother had wanted, and yet, the physician confirmed that I wasn’t a kidney stone she was carrying but a growing, twisting, expanding new life within her belly. I was there, but I wasn’t th…
