Planned Parenthood Celebrates Abortion on Mother’s Day: “Grateful for Roe v. Wade”

Apparently Planned Parenthood loves moms and celebrated them this past Mother’s Day by promoting abortion. In a few Mother’s Day “cards”, Planned Parenthood shared the stories of women who’ve happily carried pregnancies term but also chose abortion.

One card read, “When Shawanna was 16, her mother died of ovarian cancer, and she had to become a mother figure for her little sister. ‘I was the one who had to take responsibility for taking care of her, and it was daunting,’ she says. Then, at age 17, Shawanna became pregnant. After considering her options and her circumstances, she decided that terminating her pregnancy was the best decision for her at the time. Six years ago, as a financially stable adult with a career, Shawanna became pregnant again. ‘This time,’ she says, ‘I was financially stable and emotionally ready to become a parent. This time, my choice was to keep the pregnancy.’”

It’s unbelievable that Planned Parenthood has the audacity to use heartbreaking stories like this one for their own gain. Although Shawanna appears happy about her abortion story, countless women dread Mother’s Day because they killed their baby at Planned Parenthood or at another abortion facility.

For example, one woman shared with Priests for Life how she relives her two abortions every Mother’s Day. She wrote, “Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. I am 48 years old and every Mother’s Day since I aborted my two children has been painful. Some years, and most of the days in between, I muted the pain by listening to the cultural messages around me that there had not been life present anyway.”

She added, “My church on this day, the priest asks all the mothers in the church to stand at the end of the Mass for a blessing. It has always been agony for me; as women all around me stand, and I sit. You see, I never had a pregnancy again, I have never given birth.”

My guess is this woman’s story didn’t make it onto Planned Parenthood’s Mother’s Day card because it didn’t fit their radical abortion agenda. The truth is abortion hurts women and every year countless post-abortive women suffer in silence on Mother’s Day.



Don’t expect to find this out from Planned Parenthood but after abortion, over 65% of women suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and post abortive women are six-times more likely to commit suicide then women who have given birth.

Thankfully, Americans took to Twitter to express their outrage concerning Planned Parenthood’s Mother’s Day cards.
