That's right! Come one, come all, to Planned Parenthood of Indiana, step right up and get that gift for that special something for that special someone who has everything! Just in time for the "holiday" season — that most novel of gifts — the Planned Parenthood Gift Certificate! (See LifeNews.com article, here.) Sound as bad as a carnival barker trying to sucker you into seeing the bearded lady? It is. But, sadly, this is real — and pretty sick: Planned Parenthood of Indiana is selling gift certificates for the Christmas gift-giving season. (See an editorial from The Washington Times).
The so-called not for profit organization which makes millions of dollars selling its abortion services as the nation's leading abortionists, which takes millions more in your state and federal tax money, now is in the gift certificate business.
For years the Christmas season has been hijacked and demeaned by commercialization and materialism; and a constant campaign to secularize the holiday (i.e. "holy day," per the word's origin) to strip any religious significance from it and our country's Christian heritage. This, however, is a low that flaunts Planned Parenthood's flagrant contempt for innocent life and Christianity itself. WorldNetDaily calls Planned Parenthood, "this generation's King Herod" (read here). Nothing says celebrate the birth of our Lord better than Get your discounted abortion here!
Even more crass is the organization's outright disingenuousness: Its spokeswoman says financial aid toward abortions isn't the purpose of the sale. Why, she says, even men can use them for prostate cancer check-ups. (Perfect for the newly unemployed!) Still . . . "We decided not to put restrictions" on their use, she said. Translation: They can be used for anything, but by the way, for your abortion convenience . . . . Know a woman you thing should abort her child? Buy a Planned Parenthood gift certificate. It makes the perfect gift!
Not only that, but the reporter at the conclusion of the video below reports that Planned Parenthood flat out hopes people buy them, then return them so the certificates can be applied to those "who need reproductive healthcare but can't pay for it."
Beyond poor taste even for Planned Parenthood, that translation is easy enough to discern: Buy an abortion for Christmas and give the gift of death.
