"Planning is Power"

Planned Parenthood's most recent commercial in the St. Louis area ends by asserting that "planning is power."

Betty Friedan finishes the preface of her book The Feminine Mystique by writing that she "believe[s] that women can affect society, as well as be affected by it; that in the end, a woman, as a man, has the power to choose, and to make her own heaven or hell."

Betty describes what happened in the Garden of Eden well. Eve decided that she had the power to make her own heaven, and then talked Adam into making the same decision. Since that time, women have not only been trying to play God, but also play the role that God gave to men.
