Planned Barrenhood (Planned Parenthood nickname)

Planned Parenthood is an organization that provides reproductive health and maternal and child health services. Planned Parenthood has been nicknamed “Planned Barrenhood” by those who believe the organization mostly promotes contraception, sterilization and abortion. The nickname “Planned Barrenhood” has been cited since at least 1977.

Other Planned Parenthood nicknames include “Banned Parenthood,” “Planned Butcherhood,” “Planned Frankenhood” and “Planned Predators.”


Wikipedia: Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), commonly shortened to Planned Parenthood, is the U.S. affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and one of its larger members. PPFA is a non-profit organization providing reproductive health and maternal and child health services. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Inc. (PPAF) is a related organization which lobbies for pro-choice legislation, comprehensive sex education, and access to affordable health care in the United States. In recent years, Planned Parenthood has begun to move away from the pro-choice label to words and phrases that more accurately reflect the entire range of women’s health and economic issues.

Planned Parenthood is the largest U.S. provider of reproductive health services, including cancer screening, HIV screening and counseling, contraception, and abortion. Contraception accounts for 34% of PPFA’s total services and abortions account for 3%; PPFA conducts roughly 300,000 abortions each year, among 3 million people served.

We are served a series on abortion in the summertime, thanks to “Planned Barrenhood” and others of that ilk, and now in the fall we learned all we ever didn’t want to know about incest.

Dubbing artiificial birth control “planned barrenhood” and calling most abortions “free choice killing,” the Rev. Paul Marx Sunday promoted natural family planning and appealed for an end to abortion on demand.

Many of those who have researched the organization call it “Planned Barrenhood.” In many cases it seeks to allow maximum sexual freedom only if procreation is averted.

Operation Save America
Walking Through Bleeding Kansas
By Fr Francis
Posted May 18, 2004
Just hung up from a phone conversation with Pastor Rusty Thomas who with Pastor Flip Benham and some brethren are walking across America . I had heard they were in the eye of one of those big Kansas Plains storms and called to see if and how they were still ticking. They were warned off the road by local weather-watching officers. A church offered them basement hospitality and they experienced the hail, lightning and thunder but thankfully escaped the devil’s Tornado twisters. He said that today in Hays Kansas they turned a corner and stumbled upon a Planned Parenthood [aka Banned Parenthood or Planned Barrenhood] and immediately went into Church-On-The-Street mode, preaching against the demons of child-sacrifice. Whereupon 8 police cars suddenly showed up to protect the child-killers.

Defector from Hell
By John William McMullen

Pp. 43-44:
Our demoniac agents and social engineers of Planned Barrenhood who had high hopes for an abortion market in the 1960’s, were downcast in the early stages of the sexual revolution when evidence was made public which indicated that an increased availability of contraceptives would not bring down the number of unplanned pregnancies or abortions.

Virginia Rep: Disabled Kids are Punishment from God (Or Not)
Submitted by Anne Landman on February 24, 2010 - 2:16pm
House Representative Bob Marshall (R-Virginia), speaking at a press conference on February 18 to oppose funding for Planned Parenthood, said that disabled children are God’s punishment for women who have aborted their first pregnancy. Marshall said,

“Looking at it from a cultural, historical perspective, this organization should be called ‘Planned Barrenhood’ because they have nothing to do with families, they have nothing to do with responsibility.”

Planned Parenthood advertises itself as a ‘safe haven’ for babies
By Fr. Mark Hodges

Critics often call the organization “Planned Barrenhood,” because some women have become sterile after Planned Parenthood abortions, destroying all hope of a future, “wanted” pregnancy.
