In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, leftists have been scrambling to do anything they can to protect their sacred cult ritual of abortion. The Democrats are desperately attempting to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law while even progressive churches are preaching sermons on how great abortion is and why its so desperately needed in a “racist,” “white supremacist society.”
Yep, they’ve gone there.
But one of the tactics of the left is to redefine terms and to do it in such a way that it seems unnoticeable. It just sort of silently permeates society and is eventually accepted. For example, marriage has been redefined to include homosexual couples fornicating together and is sanctioned by the state. Almost nobody, including well-meaning Christians, think twice about using the term “marriage” for homosexual couples.
And yesterday, we reported how Merriam-Webster, one of the most popular dictionaries in the American English language, has redefined the term female to include men who “identify” as women.
Now, we’re witnessing Planned Parenthood attempt to redefine “ectopic pregnancy” and place it under the abortion umbrella. Previously, on the Planned Parenthood website, it was explicitly stated that treatment for an ectopic pregnancy is not the same thing as an abortion. We would have concurred with that as an ectopic pregnancy is extremely dangerous and almost never viable. However, we would have added that at least an attempt to re-implant the embryo should be made and that medical science should be working toward making such a move possible.
That language used referring to ectopic pregnancy as not “the same thing as getting an abortion” can be seen from a snapshot of their website on 5/17/22 below.
Now, in the most recent snapshot of their website, that language has been completely scrubbed from Planned Parenthood’s website:
One must ask the question, why did they remove that language? Well, it’s simple. By referring to the removal of an ectopic pregnancy as abortion, they can now argue that it is “necessary to have an abortion” in the cases of ectopic pregnancy. Does this change anything? It does as it muddies the waters between the two procedures and it garners sympathy from those who would otherwise be staunchly against abortions. It’s a tactic being used by leftists to move the needle of “pro-choice” further to the left.
