PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S IDEA OF CHRISTMAS
Catalyst January/February Issue 2008
Every Christmas season, Planned Parenthood e-mails its supporters a Christmas card titled, “Choice on Earth.” This year the e-mail had an accompanying video featuring, “Moments that inspired us in 2007.” One of the highlights of the year was the opening of a new clinic in Aurora, Illinois.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue ripped into Planned Parenthood and its supporters, stating:
“Planned Parenthood says it stands for choice. So do serial killers and rapists. Jeffrey Dahmer believed in choice as well. Choice, of course, carries no moral quotient by itself—it must have an object. And the object of choice that Planned Parenthood prizes is killing kids in utero. But to admit this is to admit to a moral monstrosity. Which explains why it prefers to talk about a woman’s ‘right to choose,’ without ever finishing the sentence.”
The introductory statement to the video says, “It’s been quite a year for Planned Parenthood and the women, men and families that we serve.” Notice that they didn’t mention women, men and children. That’s because the kids are a problem.
Donohue continued that it’s, “not just any kids. The kids of white people are not a problem—it’s the kids of minorities that exercise Planned Parenthood.” Planned Parenthood was founded for racist reasons—African Americans were the original problem—the organization has now evolved into fixing another problem: Latinos. That’s why it boasted about setting up its spanking new clinic in Aurora, a town that is heavily Latino.
Donohue concluded, “If Planned Parenthood needs to rip off some special day in the calendar in order to sell its sick message, let it pick some day other than Christmas. We recommend Day of the Dead.”
