This Valentine’s Day, the pro-abortion group Catholics for Choice has collected a series of letters to thank abortion clinic workers for what they do.
Compiled in a booklet form on the pro-abortion group’s website, the letters were written by “everyday Catholics around the country” who wanted to praise Planned Parenthood for its work, according to the group. The booklet is titled “Dear Planned Parenthood: Love Letters from Catholics.”
In the introduction to the letters, Jon O’Brien, president of the pro-abortion group, said they began the letter campaign in response to the “continued attacks” on the abortion business by pro-lifers. The attacks he was referring to are the undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress that caught top Planned Parenthood officials selling aborted babies’ body parts, and the investigations and de-funding efforts that followed.
“As we look to the next presidential election and beyond, it is critical that Catholics and others who believe in freedom of conscience for all speak up for women who need abortions and for the providers who care for them,” O’Brien wrote. “The social justice that drives our Catholic faith expects nothing less of each of us.”
Many of the letters are ironic in their praise of the abortion business’s deadly trade:
“As a Catholic committed to social justice and human rights, I am so grateful that you are there doing the job that you do to protect our basic human rights.” – Dawne, Iowa
“As a Catholic, I have used your services, volunteered at your centers and donated to your cause. … We know this is a battle for good, and evil will always try to defeat good. This will not happen with brave citizens like your employees and doctors, who are at the front lines every day.” – Shelley, California
“I have been so thankful for Planned Parenthood being there. I know that you do everything possible to prevent abortion, but sometimes people make mistakes. I want to live in a world where all babies are wanted and loved.” – Kari, Hawaii
“Thank you for saving lives. You provide information and medical assistance to women around the world to whom it would not otherwise be available.” – Jennie, Michigan
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion business, destroying the human rights of about 330,000 unborn babies every year in the U.S., according to its own annual reports. It currently is under investigation by U.S. Congress and several states as a result of the undercover videos.

A pro-life group also is reaching out to abortion workers this February with a compassionate letter-writing campaign that encourages them to quit and offers help for them to do so.
As LifeNews reported, And Then There Were None, a pro-life outreach to abortion clinic workers, recently launched the “Love One Out, Love Won Out” campaign to send flowers and love letters to abortion clinic employees to encourage them to walk away from their jobs.
Each letter includes the message: “We love you, and you are too good to be working in an abortion clinic. We love you enough to help you quit. Healing is possible.”
“The Love One Out campaign was designed to help abortion clinic workers know that they can do better than working in the abortion industry and that they can receive the support and love from others who have left the industry,” said Abby Johnson, the group founder.
“If you or someone you know wants to leave the abortion industry, there is free, confidential help available,” Johnson said. “Visit www.attwn.org or www.abbyjohnson.org to contact ATTWN and receive guidance and assistance through your transition out of the abortion industry— every step of the way.”
