Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, a racist and a eugenicist, to wipe out poor people, minorities, and disabled people.
The Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ, the Son of God made flesh, to spread salvific grace around the world and convert people to belief in the Trinity and to live in a spirit of faith, hope and love embodied by poverty, chastity and obedience.
Yet the Catholic Church is vilified and Planned Parenthood is exalted.
We are not to criticize Planned Parenthood for its founder’s “outmoded” beliefs, even though Planned Parenthood still exercises those beliefs, but we *are* to criticize the Catholic Church for the behaviors of some Catholics, both laity and clerics, who have sinned in the name of the Church yet been condemned *by* the Church for doing so, when their actions clearly went aganist everything the Church stands for.
The Catholic Church is the largest charitable organization in the world and provides more free healthcare services than any other organization, yet the Church is open fodder for vilification, attacks, and censure, and the Church is to be forced to provide abortions, contraceptives, adoptions to same sex couples, same sex “marriage,” etc.
However, even though abortion accounts for over 99% of Planned Parenthood’s activities, any attempt to criticize, de-fund or censure Planned Parenthood, or to force Planned Parenthood to actually give women informed consent, is met with protestations that Planned Parenthood is a vital charitable organization because something like 1 in 200 women who walk in pregnant are referred to third party agencies for adoption services, women who walk in with concerns they may have breast cancer get a free feel-up and a referral to a third party organization for a mammogram, and one or two PP “clinics” in the country actually provide mammograms.
All Catholics are besmeared because of a tiny fraction of less than 1% of pedophiles in the priesthood, with a much larger percentage of active homosexuals who preyed on teenaged boys in spite of numerous Vatican documents that forbid ordination of anyone with “same sex attraction.” Yet the fact that Planned Parenthood “clinics” regularly cover up sexual abuse and statutory rape when underage girls come in for abortions, or the fact that many PP workers engage in sexual molestation themselves (see also “free cancer screenings”) is to be ignored because Planned Parenthood is such a vital charitable organization.
I get it.
