In his Forum letter published March 14, Dr. Eric Johnson of Grand Forks opines in favor of Planned Parenthood and all their so-called wonderful programs. He is dead wrong and he knows better than to bring shame to the noble art of healing. Any physician who would advocate for an organization that extinguishes millions of lives and targets racial minorities should feel an enormous sense of shame.
No physician in North Dakota can be found to abort babies at the lone facility in North Dakota involved in this gruesome practice. Now we have found one that thinks Planned Parenthood is a benevolent organization on a mercy mission to serve the poor with, as he says, "cancer screenings, birth control, STD testing and treatment, and well-woman exams." He conveniently left out referrals for abortions and the actual abortions themselves.
What concerns me more is his exposure to students at the University of North Dakota Medical School as an associate professor. I have an idea for a budget cut at UND.
Planned Parenthood in Moorhead makes referrals to women seeking abortion. Planned Parenthood kills over 300,000 babies in the U.S. every year. Planned Parenthood receives over $500,000,000 in taxpayer subsidies every year. Planned Parenthood turned down President Trump's offer of saving their annual funding if they only gave up their abortion business. Planned Parenthood refused. Killing means more to Planned Parenthood than all the other smoke screen services they hide behind to appear to be benevolent.
All the cancer screenings, testing, exams and other benevolent services offered by Planned Parenthood could easily be offered by other community health organizations. Those are the organizations that should be funded, not Planned Parenthood. Johnson would do well to focus his energies away from promoting an organization that kills babies and towards bolstering community health organizations that serve the health, not death, of its patients.
