Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, has a message for moms: send us more money. Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, sent out a fund-raising request this week:
"This Mother's Day, I'm honoring that legacy with a Planned Parenthood Federation of America Mother's Day gift. Join me," she wrote, "You can help with a gift to Planned Parenthood Federation of America today in honor of your mother or daughter, and on behalf of all the women," she added. "And, I'm proud that my own children carry on that legacy. That's what it's all about, isn't it?"
Let's think about this one. A financial gift to Planned Parenthood in honor of your mother or daughter? Okay, if there are two things in this world that are diametrically opposed, surely they are Planned Parenthood and motherhood. Let's use logic here, and reason the above statement:
"The best Mother's Day (day of celebration commemorating the gift of life given from mother to child, generally recognized with a token of affection in the form of chocolate, flowers, jewelry, or macaroni artwork) gift (freely given to indicate affection and or appreciation from the giver to the receiver) is a donation (monetary support given to advance a cause of the donor's choosing) to Planned Parenthood" ("family planning" organization which is responsible for, according to the American Life League, 1 out of every 4 abortions in the US, posting a record 289,570 performed during the 2006-2007 period.
So the best way to commemorate the gift of life transmitted from mother to child is to make a monetary gift which will ensure that this transmission does not happen in the future? I'm sorry, I guess I don't quite follow this line of reasoning.
I understand the need for Planned Parenthood to raise funding for its diabolical mission of destruction, ( I can use diabolical in everyday language, right?) but I'm not tracking the logic of using MOTHER'S DAY to promote abortions. That's like using Spring Break to promote chastity, or Mardi Gras to promote temperance. It just, well, sucks, as far as advertising campaigns go. But I guess these people aren't thinking with hearts or heads.
