This year as you sit down to a big Thanksgiving meal with family and friends, Planned Parenthood wants you to say thank you – for themselves, that is.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards sent a Thanksgiving email today encouraging people to thank the abortion business’s staff for their “hard work.”

Richards writes:

Strength. Care. Compassion. Those are the words that jump right to my mind when I think about the doctors, nurses, and other staff at Planned Parenthood heath centers. If you’ve ever been (or known!) a Planned Parenthood patient, you know just what I mean. The warm welcome they give to every patient, their total commitment to care — it inspires me, and reminds me just what we’re fighting so hard every day to protect.

… let’s show them what that dedication means to us. Share what word comes to mind when you think of Planned Parenthood, and help us create a special poster to say thanks to hard-working health center staff.

Already the campaign has backfired on the abortion giant as pro-lifers began submitting their one-word descriptions on Twitter today. They paint a very real picture of what the Planned Parenthood abortion business is really about.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions every year. It has taken away the right to life for millions of babies through the years – babies who otherwise may have been sitting at the Thanksgiving table with us this year.

This isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood has attempted to politicize Thanksgiving for its own benefit. In 2011, the abortion giant gave out tips for its supporters in terms of how they can push abortion on their guests at the Thanksgiving dinner table.

“The holidays are upon us! Going home or getting together with relatives for the holidays is always a stressful time, but if your family members are the type who regularly protest outside the local Planned Parenthood, you know that this holiday is going to be a doozy,” PPNYC complained. “Luckily, we have some tips for surviving those awkward conversations. So read on, and bring some diplomacy and understanding to the table along with that pumpkin pie.”

Planned Parenthood also encouraged people to push abortions of disabled unborn children on their Thanksgiving guests, by telling them, “We can try to imagine the heartbreak of a family when they get the news that a test has shown there is something wrong with their baby.”

The tips included “Avoid bumper speak talk” and “Remember the big picture” and abortion activists were told, “Debating when life begins or whether or not abortion is federally funded may get you nowhere. Instead focus on your shared values and the big picture—for instance, talk about how you believe everyone should be able to afford to go to the doctor, or how the decision about when and whether to become a parent is a personal one.”

Activists were told to tell their guests that it is “misinformation” that certain forms of birth control can end a pregnancy (cause an abortion) and that they should be “open and accepting of other people’s personal views” unless, of course, they are pro-life. Abortion backers should tell their guests, “I might not personally choose to get an abortion, but I could never decide for another woman whether or not she was ready to become a parent,” Planned Parenthood advises.
