Planned Parenthood of Indiana is selling gift certificates.
This goes right up there with the National Organization for Women selling “Keep abortion legal” bracelets for Mother’s Day (nothing tells mom “Hey, thanks for not murdering me in the womb” like a NOW bracelet).
When I first read the Planned Parenthood gift certificate story, I wasn’t absolutely sure it was true, but yep, there’s a “Gift certificates now available” announcement right at the top of PP of Ind’s website.
Here’s the quote of the week so far:
“People are making really tough decisions about putting gas in their car and food on their table, so we know that many women especially put healthcare at the bottom of their list to do,” said Chrystal Struben-Hall, Vice President of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.
Is putting gas in your car or food on your table really a “tough decision”? You’d hope that getting an abortion would be a “tough decision,” but it isn’t if you’ve got gas and food to buy, I guess.
There’s something inherently wrong with using Christmas, a holiday that’s centered around the world’s most famous birth, to peddle “gifts” that can be used toward abortions. What’s next? Giving Mahmoud Ahmadinejad welcome mats as Hanukkah presents?
