I have been arguing for many years that the real target for the anti-choice movement is not abortion, it’s contraception. It would be much more difficult for me to make that argument without them continually providing more evidence for that conclusion. To wit:
On June 6, American Life League, STOPP (Stop Planned Parenthood International), and over 38 cosponsors from 18 states and Australia will rally to expose the dangers of hormonal contraception. This marks the eighth annual observance of The Pill Kills National Day of Action. The 2015 theme is The Pill Kills Truth.
Events have been scheduled in the US and abroad, including an educational meeting in Australia concerning the hazards of hormonal contraception by Dr. Rory Donnellan, founder of Immaculata Pathology.
Discussing plans for the event, Rita Diller, director of STOPP International, stated, “On June 6, we will hit the streets and the Internet to decry the Griswold decision and the havoc the pill brings to women’s lives and to our world. Doctors, nurses, lawyers, clergy, moms, and dads from all walks of life—with facts in hand—will refute the lies of Planned Parenthood and Big Pharma.”…“The truth is the pill is killing babies, killing and crippling women, and tearing away at the very fabric of society—the family,” added Diller. “There is no end to the lies that are planted by population controllers to ensure every woman takes her daily dose of the death-dealing pill. We will refute the lies.”
This is not about abortion. If they wanted to reduce abortion, they would be in favor of the widest possible availability of birth control. But they aren’t. Because their goal is not to prevent abortion, it’s to control the reproductive lives of women. Full stop.
