This is a topic that is often very controversial, emotional, and difficult to discuss. This posting is an attempt to speak the truth about abortion without apologizing.

LDS Doctrine is clear on this point:

In today’s society, abortion has become a common practice, defended by deceptive arguments. Latter-day prophets have denounced abortion, referring to the Lord’s declaration, “Thou shalt not . . . kill, nor do anything like unto it” (D&C 59:6). Their counsel on the matter is clear: Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must not submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for an abortion. Church members who encourage an abortion in any way may be subject to Church discipline.

Church leaders have said that some exceptional circumstances may justify an abortion, such as when pregnancy is the result of incest or rape, when the life or health of the mother is judged by competent medical authority to be in serious jeopardy, or when the fetus is known by competent medical authority to have severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth. But even these circumstances do not automatically justify an abortion. Those who face such circumstances should consider abortion only after consulting with their local Church leaders and receiving a confirmation through earnest prayer.

When a child is conceived out of wedlock, the best option is for the mother and father of the child to marry and work toward establishing an eternal family relationship. If a successful marriage is unlikely, they should place the child for adoption, preferably through LDS Family Services (see “Adoption”).

It is tempting as a Latter Day Saint to say that I will not have an abortion, but I cannot support banning them because of the sanctity of our agency. This is wrongheaded and addressed by Elder Dallin H. Oaks in this article, here is a part:

If we say we are anti-abortion in our personal life but pro-choice in public policy, we are saying that we will not use our influence to establish public policies that encourage righteous choices on matters God’s servants have defined as serious sins. I urge Latter-day Saints who have taken that position to ask themselves which other grievous sins should be decriminalized or smiled on by the law due to this theory that persons should not be hampered in their choices. Should we decriminalize or lighten the legal consequences of child abuse? of cruelty to animals? of pollution? of fraud? of fathers who choose to abandon their families for greater freedom or convenience?

Similarly, some reach the pro-choice position by saying we should not legislate morality. Those who take this position should realize that the law of crimes legislates nothing but morality. Should we repeal all laws with a moral basis so that our government will not punish any choices some persons consider immoral? Such an action would wipe out virtually all of the laws against crimes.

Here is an Ensign article containing 15 separate arguments to support NOT easing up on abortion restrictions.

The LDS Church is firmly against abortion except in the most extreme circumstances and even then, only after sincere prayer and counseling with your bishop. As a people we are encouraged to be “pro-life”.

What is the Cost of a Society That Allows Abortion?

Ask Geraldo Flores. In Texas, it is a Felony punishable by a full life term to purposely cause a miscarriage if you are not a doctor. His girlfriend was pregnant and began to show, then decided she would have an abortion. The doctor told her she was too far along, past 23 weeks. She was also carrying twins. She tried punching her own stomach and running long distances and when that did not work, she begged her boyfriend to help her do it and he stomped on her stomach, causing her to miscarry the two babies. Geraldo Flores has been sentenced to life in prison. His girlfriend remains free to go on with her life. It is, after all a woman’s right to choose.

But, Planned Parenthood was started with only the best of intentions, right? Wrong.

Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger. She was lauded as one of the “Top 100” most important people of the 20th Century in Time Magazine and as one of the pioneers of the feminist movement. It turns out that she was mostly in favor of only aborting the right kind of people, or what is known as eugenics. Her bigotry was not merely racial. She was in favor of sterilization of people with mental handicaps, people who are too religious, poor, immigrants, or anyone else considered “unfit”. From blackgenocide.org:

Not to be outdone by her followers, Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as “unfit,” a plan she said would be the “salvation of American civilization.: And she also spoke of those who were “irresponsible and reckless,” among whom she included those ” whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers.” She further contended that “there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.” That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered “unfit” cannot be easily refuted.

While Planned Parenthood’s current apologists try to place some distance between the eugenics and birth control movements, history definitively says otherwise. The eugenic theme figured prominently in the Birth Control Review, which Sanger founded in 1917. She published such articles as “Some Moral Aspects of Eugenics” (June 1920), “The Eugenic Conscience” (February 1921), “The purpose of Eugenics” (December 1924), “Birth Control and Positive Eugenics” (July 1925), “Birth Control: The True Eugenics” (August 1928), and many others.

Margaret Sanger is quoted extensively by Diane S. Dew and has Ms. Sanger’s opinions on all sorts of topics and quotes official statements from Planned Parenthood. They are in favor of any kind of consensual sex, and against marriage in general. They are in favor of the sterilization of everyone: “[Planned Parenthood] has encouraged homosexuality and advocated compulsory sterilization of all who have two children. (Family Planning Perspectives (a PP publication), June, Oct. 1970)”

Are you convinced you should sup
port anti-abortion efforts yet? No?

How about 50,000,000 abortions in the United States since 1973. The article was published in 2004, and with the rate of abortions, we are now over 50,000,000 aborted pregnancies. On a positive note, there has been a small reduction in the amount of abortions in the United States. In the United States alone. 1973 was significant because Roe v. Wade was decided and as voters we no longer have the ability to enforce any kind of meaningful regulation on abortion. Subsequent court decisions have only made the situation worse. In 1995, there were between 20,000,000 and 26,000,000 abortions world wide. It is a modern day tragedy.

States cannot even ban the use of perhaps the most evil “medical” procedure of all, partial birth abortion. It is a gruesome procedure and if you really want to read about it, here is a page with diagrams explaining it.

It is as close to modern day child sacrifice that we have. Completely unnecessary and unneeded. There has been no medical showing where this procedure would be necessary, ever.

Oh, and that eugenics part? Check this out:

Abortion, by the numbers, is a racist institution. How so? Because abortion kills a far greater percentage of minority children in America than it does white children. The Alan Guttmacher fact sheet, Facts in Brief, reveals that, “Black women are more than 3 times as likely as white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2 1/2 times as likely.

The Centers for Disease Control, which has been tracking the number and characteristics of women obtaining legal induced abortions since 1969, gives us these numbers. White women, who make up 75% of the female population in the U.S., account for only 55% of all U.S. abortions. Black women, who make up 12.3% of the females in the U.S, account for 35% of all U.S. abortions. “Other races” of women fill out the remaining 12.5% of the female population and account for 10% of all U.S. abortions.

Margaret Sanger’s plan is working.

Still Not Convinced?

The people who push the most for abortion rights are profiting from abortion. Not just in performing the procedure, but in the sale of the body parts after an abortion. In fact, here is what purports to be a price list from 1999.

These organizations and the people behind them are profiting from this immense tragedy and holocaust.
