Planned Parenthood Thinks Moms Want More Abortions for Mother’s Day

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — It’s a little difficult for people who were victims of abortion to purchase their mother a gift for Mother’s Day this weekend. But Planned Parenthood apparently thinks moms want donations made to the abortion business in their name from those lucky enough to not have been aborted themselves.
Cecile Richards, the president of the largest abortion business in the nation, sent out Planned Parenthood’s annual Mother’s Day fundraising missive today.
"It’s almost Mother’s Day … and if you have a mother in your life who’s anything like me or my mom (the late Texas Governor Ann Richards), then you know nothing would make her happier than a gift that represents bold and compassionate values. Like a gift in her honor to Planned Parenthood Federation of America," she writes.
"We’ve made it quick and easy and we’ve even made it pretty," Richards adds. "Honor a mother in your life with a gift to Planned Parenthood. [It’s] a gift your loved one will appreciate and remember."
But Wendy Wright says Planned Parenthood would make more from its fundraising appeal if it didn’t make it so there are fewer people who could give.
"Planned Parenthood could make even more money from its shameless exploitation of Mothers Day if they stopped making women childless from abortion," she told LifeNews.com today.
"A better Mothers Day gift would be to organizations that help women cherish their motherhood, and that is pregnancy resource centers," she said.
The pro-abortion group says a donation is the great gift for those who can’t come up with something better for mom on Sunday than a gift to an organization that kills children and hurts women.
"If you are the daughter whose mom had the guts to give you the answers to questions you couldn’t quite figure out how to ask, if you are the son whose mother raised you to love and respect your sisters, your wife, your daughters; and if you know a mother who is raising strong, independent, and confident kids in the face of unbelievable odds," then a Planned Parenthood gift is appropriate.
Those moms whose family members send a gift to support the abortion business in their name receive a email with a "card" featuring a flower.
