Stop Publicly Funding Planned Parenthood sign now

Planned Parenthood is an organization that not only provides information to the community, but also takes controversial positions on sensitive issues. Members of the pro-life community are appalled to find that Waterloo Region provides funding to an organization that has proven to have a clear bias. This organization is a special interest group that should not be funded by taxpayers money. If people support the giving of taxpayers money to Planned Parenthood, it would only be proper for support to also be provided for funding pro-life groups.

Planned Parenthood may provide valuable information to some members of the community, but not without a cost. The group advocates that the unborn should have no right to life and uses terms such as Womans Choice in attempt to squash the discussion of the rights of another individual human being. It advocates that the right to choose should come before all other rights, even another individuals right to life. It is a scientific fact that the unborn is a growing, individual human being, just like any other individual human being that is born. No law in Canada guarantees this right to abortion, though Planned Parenthoods educational services would lead one to believe so.

When Planned Parenthood councils young girls, they encourage them not to tell their parents that they are on birth control; what kind of precedence does this set for parent-child relationships? Should we not be encouraging children to talk to their parents in order to develop healthy, respectful and trusting relationships rather than encouraging them to avoid their parents on sensitive issues? This is another bias that Planned Parenthood creates that we should remain skeptical of.

With Planned Parenthood being an external organization, it is understood that there is nothing that can be done to change how it is run and how changes can be made to better administer it. The best way to deal with the current bias in funding is to fund an organization that does not take positions on sensitive political issues.

This petition has been brought forward in response to a petition from supporters of Planned Parenthood who wish to see its funding increased. The undersigned are concerned citizens of Waterloo Region, students of the University of Waterloo, the pro-life community and those who disagree with the funding of this organization. We wish to see the discontinuation of the funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization that we are ashamed of seeing our tax dollars going into.

Please consider our thoughts and opinions as just as valuable as our opponents.
