Is Planned Parenthood Murder
Katie, that's a great idea. I know in the area I live there is an organization called birthright, which helps much but funding is a problem. (PP has tremendous public and govt funding)Also, my church has what they call Bethany house, which offers many alternatives,including housing,educating unwed moms.

My whole point comes down to this:
Each drug has certain effects. Many drugs can be used for multiple purposes, some good, some not. Unfortunately, many drugs that can be used for "undesirable" purposes become politicized, and even those people who use them for LEGITIMATE purposes get tarred and feathered with the same brush as those who don't.

I may not agree with everything that Planned Parenthood does, but it is a place for women to go to when they need help. So, in response to Planned Parenthood, why doesn't a Christian group start up something similar, a place that advocates life and will show Christian love?

Strong axe:: It is your advocating that raised the question.It is possible that those same pills upset the hormones in the first place.People who are promiscuous suffer the consequences .If the glove dont Fit You must aquit.One cannot generalise on this subject Let The judge of Creation Rule.

Who said I was questiong God?
I was talking about the use of hormone-control pills (also called "birth control pills" because they regulate cycles of women to prevent conception) - and that these pills are ALSOused by women to control hormonal imbalances. This has NOTHING TO DO with contraception (other than the same pills are used for both purposes).
Our bodies fail. When that happens, we see doctors. (Yes, God CAN heal, but he usually leaves us to our own devices.)
---StrongAxe on 11/8/07|
StrongAxe 11/7/I hear U.But,facts remain- warning signs R on those pills.. alot of danger then good can come from them.
I'd rather deal with an imbalance then take a toxic pill.
I think all women should read the labels then listen to the Doctor. The doctor is not the one who is going to be taking it.Planned Parent hood is evil-They R jumping for joy in Alaska today...cause they don't have to get parental consent to kill a baby of a 16 yr old girl or younger.
EVIL EVIL EVIL !

Strongaxe:: God is the author & Giver of Life The OT is proof of This as also the modern day.God has His ways Do you wish to question HIM then be my guest.The "Great difference" you point to is Not Yours BUT HIS.God made Hormones tooo or do you wish to change that too!!!!!!
---Emcee on 11/7/07|
Some women have problems with their hormones and reproductive cycles, and taking birth control pills can help them regulate them (even when they are not using them for their birth control effects at all). Such women often have their health jeopardized by the heated political battles over birth control - just because they need to take pills that happen to be used for that purpose by other people.

"Be fruitful and multiply" is a commandment to all people, not to every person.
Otherwise, by your logic, anyone who doesn't marry at puberty and start having a child a year for the rest of his or her life (usually having 20+ children) is a murderer.
There is a GREAT difference between taking an existing life, and not choosing to start one in the first place.
If you have any scripture that equates "not having children" with murder, I would LOVE to see it.
---StrongAxe on 11/7/07|
those pills are toxic and can make you sick.
That is not a good choice.
It upsets the natural forces of God.
---Lisa on 11/6/07|
Some forms of contraception are ok, others are abortive, meaning that pregnancy is not prevented, but rather is ended early,usually within a few days of conception,such as the various types of IUD's or "morning after" pill.
---christina on 11/6/07|
There is no Scripture to prove that parents don't have the right to plan how many children they want, or any Scripture to prove that preventing the sperm from reaching the egg or being fertilized is a sin. If this was murder or something else really evil I think God would have the sense to tell us in His word clearly.
---john on 11/5/07|
What is law ,Gods Law cannot be wrong.God is Perfect His word from genesis is "Increase & multiply"anyone who deliberately interferes with the progression of this LAW,is guilty of Murder and the voices of those Innocent beings cry out for mercy & justice.Will God judge our secret Thoughts and actions.? YES.The 5th Commandment was specifically made to preserve Life."Thou shalt NOT Kill."
---Emcee on 11/5/07|
With over six billion people living on a planet that can reasonably support less than half that, failure to use contraceptives is a greater sin than not doing so.
And no matter what your opinion on abortion, it cannot possibly be murder to prevent conception. Otherwise, every virgin female would have to be arrested for each month she could but did not concieve.
Oh, and regarding the edict to 'go forth and multiply'? Any mathematician will tell you--it's possible to multiply by zero.
---Nancy on 11/5/07|
I agree with Rita,Notlaw,I have never heard of such a thing and even more important I have never read Jews could have abortions in the Bible. Give your source please with scripture and verse. I will not believe you until I see it in black and white in the Word of God. The Jews followed the Ten Commandments and would have obeyed "Thou shalt not kill". If I'm wrong show me.
---Darlene_1 on 11/5/07|
Notlaw, I have never heard that said before, nor have I read it. Could you tell me where you discovered that information so that I might read it for myself. Thanks.

Mima:: Gods plans for Procreation are His: do Parents who Plan go against His Plan?.To enjoy the fruits of HIS salvation one must Toil in the Vineyards of The lord.Enjoying the rewards are stealing His Fruits of that Joy.
---Emcee on 11/5/07|
NO -- before pregnancy you have a choice as to whether to have a baby. It is a matter of conscience.
It murder once it is in the womb
---Andrea on 11/5/07|
Notlaw99, this is very disturbing. Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God"-Mk 10:14, and "whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea"-Mk 9:42. Of course He is talking about babes in Christ, but He has a tender spot for the young and defenseless.
---Geoff on 11/5/07|
RitaH, at the time of Christ Judaism differentiated between actual life and potential life. Abortion was permitted in Judaism and was mandatory if the life of the mother was threatened to the extent of cutting out the fetus piece by piece if necessary. Christ nor any Apostille taught contrary to that principle so it legitimately moves forward into Christianity as in indisputable president. So Abortion can never be consider as an act of murder. There is no Biblical basis to criticize Abortion.
---notlaw99 on 11/2/07|
Up till about 1930 all Christian churches condemned the use of contraception. How did this change to being okay now?
---John1944 on 11/1/07|
I cannot see Planned Parenthood ever endorsing the Rhythm Method as there is no money in it. And those who use Natural Family Planning do not use it because it is not as effective as other natural methods.
However, the leading path to abortion is failed contraception. And putting artificial products between you and your partner in order to interfere with your God given fertility does have consequences.
---lorra8574 on 11/1/07|
Destruction of helpless human life is nothing new-Ex 1:16, Mt 2:16-18. This world is very selfish and everyone seems to be looking out only for himself. Contraception can be used or abused-for kindness (providing for ones family)-1 Tm 5:8 or for selfishness-Gen 38:9. If life has begun, conception, it should not be ended on purpose.
---Geoff on 11/1/07|
Notlaw, I disagree with your last statement. This is my personal belief which you will, obviously, not agree with but I view an unborn child as just that - a child that is not yet born, yet still a child. We can cover a multitude of sins by referring to a foetus, a bunch of cells etc. It is life inside the womb and has the potential to be life outside the womb unless God or another human being intervenes. WE have no right to intervene and will be answerable if we do.
---RitaH on 11/1/07|
Practicing family planning is not murder, using contraceptives is not murder, even abortion is not murder for it is impossible to murder something that has never been born.
---notlaw99 on 10/31/07|
The use of contraceptives is not murder. There is nothing conceived to be killed. It does nothing but allow a couple to plan for their children and have them when they are prepared to support them, as well as to prevent families from having so many children they cannot support them.
---Trish9863 on 10/29/07|
"The use of contraceptives is a sin, since it promotes promiscuity, and puts a barrier between a husband and wife"
The use of contraceptives by husband & wife does not promote promiscuity.
It does not put anyhting except a physical barrier to prevent conception ... otherwise it enables husband and wife to be closer to each other.
---alan_of_UK on 10/29/07|
To me personally 'planned parenthood' means using contraceptives and this is not murder. Does the term mean something different to some of you? If so, would you please explain why it is murder? I'm baffled.
---RitaH on 10/29/07|
Planned Parenthood is a bunch of murders since they promote abortion over adoption.
The use of contraceptives is a sin, since it promotes promiscuity, and puts a barrier between a husband and wife.
The rhythm method (Billings Ovulation Method) is the only one that does not put a barrier between a husband and his wife and actually draws the husband and wife closer together since both need to be aware of the cycles.
---Francis on 10/29/07|
Not sure if the original poster was speaking of the organization called Planned Parenthood or the act of contraception in general. I believe it was about contraception. If so, NO, it is not murder. There is nothing created yet to be murdered. After the egg is fertilized and one aborts that living being, then yes, I believe it would be murder (i.e. abortion).
---Debbie_in_Ohio on 10/29/07|
Murder is committed everyday in some form of another. Look at the murders and atrocities our president has committed, we murder with our tongues when we talk and gossip about others, including our friends.Murder comes in many forms.Just wanted to add that. I think abortion would fall into that category of murder. But not contraceptives and other forms of birth control.
---Robyn on 10/28/07|
Murder of WHAT?
To follow that argument, abstinemce is murder!
You can't murder something that does not yet exist.
If preventing the sperm reaching the egg is murder, a woman commits millions of murders murder every time she has intercourse, because her body makes it a very difficult journey, and allows only one sperm to reach the egg.
---alan_of_UK on 10/28/07|
Absolutely, planned parenthood is murder, and yours as well as my taxes is helping to fund it as well as the ACLU. I do not know if you are familar with the ACLJ(not ACLU), but this Christian organization fights for Christian's rights. The ACLJ recently took planned parenthood to the Supreme Court on one particular area and ACLJ won this case against them. If you have not already checked the ACLJ out I would highly recommend doing so.
---Cynthia on 10/28/07|
I believe theres nothing wrong with being ready for children by means of making plans for them.many people don,t want children,problem is when they get pregnant and have an abortion ,then I do have a problem.
