Planned Parenthood Celebrates after Financing Efforts to Legalize Abortion in Argentina

After Argentina legalized abortion in the early morning of December 30, an international branch of Planned Parenthood posted a celebratory message on its website. In addition to celebrating the now legal killing of preborn Argentinian children, the post also boasted about how the American abortion giant helped finance the political push to pass the controversial legislation.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region (IPPFWHR) posted on its website:
"Argentina’s Senate just voted to legalize abortion up to 14 weeks! This is a historic moment for our region, our incredible partners in Argentina, and the countless activists and organizers who formed “the green wave” to advocate relentlessly for the rights of women and girls.

IPPFWHR has nurtured an ecosystem of feminist organizations and activists for more than 15 years that contributed to make today possible. IPPFWHR directly supports seven partners in Argentina, who in turn sub-grant funds to 20 other grassroots organizations from around the country. They have been coalescing around shared activities, such as advocating with policymakers and ensuring strong communications in favor of abortion rights stayed prominent in the public discourse. They’re also actively planning how to best support the implementation of the new law."

Argentinian President Alberto Fernández, who introduced the law, denied pro-life claims that the push to legalize abortion was coming from international organizations rather than the Argentinian people.

Further casting doubt on this claim, November polling by Giacobbe & Asociados found that 60% of Argentinians opposed the law, and only 26.7% were in favor.

Pro-life citizens from many nations in which abortion is not yet legal have complained that political forces from other countries often attempt to interfere with their abortion laws. That is the case with the United Nations, and will certainly continue to be true for Planned Parenthood as well.
