I had to look at the email twice because I could not believe what I was seeing.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion operation, sent out a Happy Mother’s Day greeting on Sunday.
This is the same organization that commits more than 330,000 abortions each year. Every abortion is the taking of an innocent, unrepeatable human life—and leaves a mother to grieve the child she has lost. It means a multitude of Mother’s Days filled with longing and regret, knowing that a precious baby never got a chance to see the light of day.
It is the height of irony that Planned Parenthood, which represents stolen motherhood, would send out a Mother’s Day electronic greeting card. The card was signed with hugs and kisses from Planned Parenthood—never mentioning the hugs and kisses that mothers will never receive because their children have died in Planned Parenthood facilities.
The card made a reference to feeling that the world’s been turned upside down—a true sentiment, when one receives a Mother’s Day greeting from the abortion industry.
The email urged the recipient to forward the message to a mom or maternal figure and to “consider making a donation to Planned Parenthood in their honor.”
Leave it to Planned Parenthood to turn Mother’s Day into yet another money-maker.
The email made me think of all the post-abortive mothers who cry out in the middle of the night for the children they cannot hold in their arms. Certainly for these mothers, the email would be a sobering reminder of what they have lost.
The cheery greetings are misplaced. If Planned Parenthood truly cared about mothers, it would abandon the abortion business altogether.
For there is nothing Mom-affirming about abortion.
