Secular Worldview Take on Planned Parenthood:

Secular Worldview Take on Planned Parenthood Atheism - lack of belief in God Widespread support of Pro-choice Stem cell research can provide life improvements Research is ethical and good use of aborted fetal tissue

Christian Worldview Take on Planned Parenthood:

Christian Worldview Take on Planned Parenthood Christian - follower of Christ who believes in the Word of the Bible Widespread support of Pro-life Psalm 139: 13-16, research requires destruction of life Research on embryonic stem cells is unethical

Conclusion:

Conclusion If the allegations against planned parenthood are true and they sold the children's organs for money, they are acting unethically because they are making a profit as a nonprofit organization. Our group consistently holds a Christian worldview; we view abortion as murder of the innocent. If someone were to torture a 3 year old would you not go out of your way to stop that? Why are we not doing the same against abortion and the disassembly of fetuses ? It says in Jeremiah 1:5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
