It’s only puppies… Why are they disturbed?
[Colorado Springs, CO / June 1, 2021] – Just as the Disney anti-hero Cruella hits movie theaters – glorifying the fur-chasing Dalmatian predator – Pikes Peak Citizens for Life (PPCFL) is turning the spotlight on the real-life anti-hero: Planned Parenthood. Are these Dalmatians intentional? You bet.
The controversial Pikes Peak Citizens for Life ad campaign has already:
- “disturbed1 “ the staff of the Colorado Springs Independent “Indy”
- caused a Colorado College journalism instructor to ponder “freedom of speech2”
- challenged local animal lovers’ priorities in print and radio (PPCFL Latest Radio Ads Challenge Listeners3)
Now the campaign “If Planned Parenthood Killed Puppies” is going BIG… BILLBOARD BIG… on three of the busiest streets in Colorado Springs. Check out the billboards on Academy @ Airport; Circle @ Platte, and Fillmore @Nevada.
Unlike Disney’s Cruella, Planned Parenthood isn’t targeting puppies. Their most recent annual report4 shows a $1.6 billion income, $618 million from taxpayers, while 354,871 babiesdied in their facilities.
The Colorado Springs Independent newspaper admits that Planned Parenthood has a “troubling1“ history with eugenics, forced sterilizations, and racism. PP even recently confessed their ugly roots in the New York Times5.
Many, including the Indy, claim that Planned Parenthood is working to “repair the damage of its past with outreach to communities of color.” However, in a response which the Indy has yet to publish, despite their claim of supporting diversity of perspectives, Pikes Peak Citizens for Life points out that Planned Parenthood’s ugly legacy lives on.
Unfortunately, as Gillentine notes, Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist. Their goal: eliminate ‘undesirable’ human beings – usually black, brown, and poor – through every means possible. Sadly, PP’s touted “outreach to communities of color” is not new… they have always targeted minority communities…and with 86% of their clinics in minority neighborhoods6, they continue to achieve the results their founder desired – less people of color.

Many defenders claim that Planned Parenthood provides “much needed” services for the poor. But PPCFL points out that for every Planned Parenthood offering minimal services, there are 13 federally qualified healthcare centers 8 that provide low or no cost full-service healthcare for women, men, and children.
Pikes Peak Citizens for Life actively directs women and men to non-racist, non-violent alternatives to Planned Parenthood. We support health care centers that leave every woman whole and every child alive. In the last year Pikes Peak Citizens for Life has trained over one hundred Sidewalk Advocates who bring women and men the good news that there are humane, “no-kill” options for crisis pregnancies.
Pikes Peak Citizens for Life defends all human life – at every age and every stage.
Let’s TALK about it.
Five Questions to ask YOUR audience…
- Would animal lovers be upset if a company made billions of dollars last year while killing puppies?
- Why are Planned Parenthood (PP) donations plummeting?
- PP’s annual report shows contributions are drying up and the abortion giant’s donor base has plummeted… down 46% (from 1.1 million donors to 590K), with total donations down 14% 9.
- What does the high disparity10 of abortion rates in minority communities indicate?
- 34% of pregnancies for black women end in abortion
- 12% of pregnancies for white women end in abortion
- 18% of “other” pregnancies end in abortion (women who are Hispanic, Asian, American Indian/Alaskan Native, or Pacific Islander)
- Black women experience induced abortions at a rate nearly 4 times11 that of white women for the last three decades.
- Is this “Outreach” or “Targeting” of minority communities?
- Does it matter that the push to legalize abortion grew from efforts aimed at depopulating communities we “don’t want too many of”?12 as described by Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
- “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.” Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, New York Times Magazine, July 2009.13
