Planned Parenthood . . . An Enemy Of The Catholic Church

August 31, 2014 Frontpage No Comments

By REY FLORES

People often tell us that if Satan were to show himself to us, he wouldn’t necessarily appear as the mustachioed, horned, goateed caricature wearing all red and carrying a trident. No, the Devil would certainly present himself as someone good, someone helpful; someone you could trust.
Do you know who has done that so effectively since 1921? Margaret Sanger and the American Birth Control League, today known as the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
For almost 100 years, Planned Parenthood has come off as the friend to the poor disenfranchised woman, toiling away in her domestic bondage to a (gasp) husband and children. Imagine that — a woman being subjected to being a wife and homemaker and expected to raise her children.
Planned Parenthood may as well be Hell Inc., given that just about everything that organization does is centered on the destruction of life, family, and nature. Who else would be against all of these God-given creations? If you guessed the Devil, you would be correct.
That is what makes American Life League’s new powerful Defend the Family campaign so important. There is no doubt that Planned Parenthood acts diabolically every time one of its abortionists takes the life of another little one in the womb.     Abortifacients are also dispensed there.
It’s not just flesh and blood that Planned Parenthood deals with. Souls are devoured there daily as all involved are led down the road to perdition. Calling murder an abortion does not change the brutal fact, especially not the brutal act.
Planned Parenthood has reduced the marital act and natural process of human reproduction into nothing but depravity and death.
In Luke 17:2, we are told by Scripture, “It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones,” yet Planned Parenthood receives millions upon millions of dollars from the government to push pornographic so-called sex education to young children in schools across the world.
Planned Parenthood has never had an interest in teaching children anything. What Planned Parenthood does amounts to nothing more than sexual indoctrination and the grooming of abortion participants.
Planned Parenthood scandalizes our little ones every day with its promotion of masturbation, pornography, homosexuality, and every form of deviant behavior imaginable. If anyone ever deserved a millstone around his neck, it would be none other than Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood’s business plan could only be concocted by an evil genius. Sanger was that agent of evil who wrought this scourge upon modern society.
Excommunicate any Catholic-in-name-only who dares defy an official decree from the Holy Father himself. Let Pope Francis declare, “International Planned Parenthood Federation is nothing less than a confirmed and absolute enemy of our Holy Mother Church! Any Catholic supporting this organization in any way will be excommunicated unless he turn away entirely and beg God’s mercy and forgiveness!”
Below please read the August 25 press release from American Life League asking the Holy Father to declare Planned Parenthood an enemy of the Church:
“In anticipation of the Vatican’s October 2014 Synod on the Family, American Life League is launching a new campaign called Defend the Family. Rooted in prayer, this campaign seeks to expose Planned Parenthood as the most dangerous enemy of traditional families and of the Catholic Church.
“American Life League’s president, Judie Brown, stated, ‘Planned Parenthood has torn apart the family like a pack of ravenous wolves. The pro-life movement and the Church must stand together, face this threat, and shield our families from Planned Parenthood’s continued assaults.’
“The Defend the Family campaign is centered around a report entitled The Vatican Can Help Save Souls From Planned Parenthood in 2014. HERE’S HOW! The report, which has been translated into Spanish, Italian, and French, builds a case that an official declaration from the Vatican that Planned Parenthood is an enemy of the Church would be a powerful way to defend families. The report is available on the campaign web page at www.DefendTheFamily.org.
“Michael Hichborn, ALL’s director of Defend the Faith, stated, ‘An official declaration of Planned Parenthood as an enemy of the Church will be a real game changer. Such a declaration will prevent Planned Parenthood employees and volunteers from serving in positions of responsibility in our parishes. Simply put, Catholics could no longer hide behind an uninformed conscience in order to assist or promote Planned Parenthood or its agenda and be able to continue calling themselves Catholics in good standing.’
“Jim Sedlak, vice president of ALL, added, ‘Some people have told us this campaign has an impossible goal. But with God, nothing is impossible. In addition to being a massive educational effort, this campaign has a large spiritual dimension.’
“ALL’s new campaign encourages regular prayers after Mass for the conversion of individual countries from the ideologies of Planned Parenthood, offers prayers for the Pope, and aims to open communication with local bishops about the dangers Planned Parenthood poses to the family. ALL’s hope is that this prayer-led effort will inspire the Holy Father to officially declare Planned Parenthood an enemy of the Church.”
Now is the time! Join American Life League today in this epic battle of good versus evil. For more information, visit www.DefendTheFamily.org or call ALL at 540-659-4171.

Now more than ever, vehicles like The Wanderer are needed for clarification and guidance on the issues of the day.

Catholic, conservative, orthodox, and loyal to the Magisterium have been this journal’s hallmarks for five generations. God willing, our message will continue well into this century and beyond.
