Planned Parenthood Wants You To Give Abortion As a Christmas Present

This turned my stomach:
A number of Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana and Illinois are offering gift certificates for their services this Christmas.

Officials say the vouchers enable people to give their loved ones "the gift of life" — that would help pay for annual checkups and birth control — but also can be used for abortions.Chrystal Struben-Hall with Planned Parenthood of Indiana said the idea is a response to economic woes that have forced many women to put health care at the bottom of their to-do list.

"People are making really tough decisions about putting gas in their car and food on their table," Struben-Hall said.
The justification for abortion is that it is a "tough decision"? We can make it much easier by telling people not to kill innocent babies.

I think the following approach to Christmas in the womb is much better:

I love the nativity campaign, it's just beautiful. The ultimate pro-life message!

What ever happened to wanting abortions to be "safe but rare"? I think this is just an example of the absurdities that people must reach for in support of the idea that abortion is a woman's "reproductive right". People have to become proud of having had an abortion like in the recent twitter hash campaign, and PP claims to have a way to give the gift of life by purchasing their services on behalf of others as a *Christmas* present, and likening the life of a baby to a tank of gas.

That's not "rare" - that's trying to normalize an abortion as any other medical check-up. They need to pick one message or the other - rare or an every day occasion. They can't have it both ways.
