Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Planned Parenthood has brought back its offensive Choice on Earth Christmas cards, turning a holiday celebrating Jesus’ birth into a fundraising opportunity to support abortion.
In an email Thursday encouraging its members to "send a holiday gift with real meaning" Planned Parenthood tells potential donors they can choose from one of five "Choice on Earth" Christmas cards.
The abortion business hopes donors will make a contribution in honor of a friend or relative and send them a pro-abortion Christmas card as an acknowledgment.
The cards come in five varieties this year and four feature the message "Choice on Earth." On even includes the Christian dove symbolizing peace and another extols the virtues of "hope, justice, and empowerment."
Wendy Wright, the executive vice president of Concerned Women for America, told LifeNews.com "Planned Parenthood revels in offending others."
"Its mockery of Jesus Christ’s birthday is intended to stick it to Christians," Wright explained.
"But in its attempt to hijack Christmas from a celebration of Jesus’ birth to reveling in the killing of innocent babies, its commemoration hearkens to another event that occurred over 2000 years ago – Herod’s order to kill all the Hebrew baby boys," she told LifeNews.com.
"But even the Grinches at Planned Parenthood can’t steal the joy of Christmas," Wright said.
"Its distasteful cards are a reminder of a timeless struggle, that evil never relents in its pursuit to pervert and destroy what is good, and how even powerful and rich leaders cannot prevail over God."
