A Twisted Black Friday Deal

Share post

This makes me sad (and sick) for so many reasons.  A discount at Planned Parenthood is not the same as going to Target at 9pm to snag a deal on your favorite DVD. But that is exactly what Planned Parenthood and our culture want us to believe.  Planned Parenthood wants us to see their “special discount” on equal terms with online shopping, shoes, and electronics. This is a direct lie from Satan himself.

Abortion cannot be returned or exchanged. It permanently hurts and haunts women, and it has stolen over 50 million lives in the United States. May we stand vehemently against this scheme of the devil.

    Pretty sure they aren’t explicitly advertising, “Hey, save money on your abortion!” If you had even a modicum of reading comprehension you’d see that at most there’s a discount on emergency contraception, which does not automatically mean abortion in the slightest. Planned Parenthood isn’t using abortion as birth control and painting it any other way is purposely deceptive.

      Jared–
      I am not surprised by this comment. It isn’t a reading comprehension issue, it was a deliberate choice to focus on the fact that Planned Parenthood performs over 300,000 abortions per year, which is sad and evil.

      A friend responded well to this point on Facbeook, and I am going to repost it here:

      “Just posted this to raise awareness. There are some very evil practices that go on behind closed doors at Planned Parenthood, and the good does not outweigh the bad. There are other organizations that support women’s health, and do not kill innocent lives. I support those completely.

        Yet abortions are not the primary output of services PP provides. If you want to paint Planned Parenthood as evil, do so by getting to the core of its practices and ideals, not spinning an advertisement to criticize this group when Black Friday as a whole is likely responsible in some sense for deaths every year because people want to save money and don’t care about trampling others to death because of it. I would hope you don’t participate in that in the same way I imagine you don’t want people to go to Planned Parenthood.

        Abortion being safe, legal and rare is preferable to it being illegal, dangerous and common. Teaching proper birth control, one of the things PP does, from what I understand, would easily prevent unplanned and unwanted pregnancies much better than abstinence only education, which has correlations to suggest it doesn’t work nearly so effectively.

        Planning children does not mean we reduce children to probability or objectify them, it means we care enough to want to give the best to children and not throw them to the proverbial wolves in adoption agencies that think anyone can take a child in and that gay parents are somehow unfit, which is absurd.
