Planned Parenthood Claims Miscarriage and Abortion are the Same and These Women are Furious

Live Action News — Planned Parenthood shared an article last week that has drawn the ire of many on social media. It likened miscarriage to abortion, calling the two “sisters.”

Pro-Life Libertarians shared a screen shot of the posting, commenting with a quip of their own, showing how nonsensical they felt the comparison was:

The Daily Wire shared excerpts of the original article at Romper, in which (clearly) pro-abortion writer Danielle Campoamor wrote:

Miscarriage and abortion are sisters. Just like my body knew what to do when an abnormal embryo implanted itself in my uterus, my mind knew what to do when a healthy embryo found its way to the soft lining of my uterine wall back when I was 23 years old, in an unhealthy relationship, living paycheck-to-paycheck, unwilling and unable to be a mother.

These illogical claims are deeply insulting to the sensibilities and infuriating to women who’ve had their own painful experiences with miscarriage. Countless women took to the Pro-Life Libertarians and The Daily Wire’s Facebook pages to say so.

Facebook users wrote: “Incredibly disrespectful,” “incredibly painful and false,” “incredibly hurtful.”


“Slap in the face”

“Negates the absolute heartbreak of millions”


“Disturbing and disgusting”

“There is no comparison,” “It was not my choice, my baby died.”


“How dare they even make the same comparison!”

Do you have a story of miscarriage, abortion, pregnancy, motherhood?


Journalist Paul Bois put Planned Parenthood’s disgusting comparison in blunt terms:

“What’s the difference between an abortion and a miscarriage? … The differences between the two are about as stark as that between dying of natural causes and dying because the Manson family strolled into town. …

Let’s transplant [Planned Parenthood’s argument equating abortion and miscarriage] into a situation for a person outside the womb: “Just like nature knew what to do with my mother when an abnormal cancer implanted itself in her breasts, my mind knows what to do when my healthy father moves in with me when I’m 23 years old in an unhealthy relationship, living paycheck-to-paycheck, unwilling and unable to be a caretaker.”

Bottom line: Planned Parenthood again appears to be completely tone-deaf and clueless when discussing the issue of children in the womb.



We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
