Planned Parenthood Releases Guide to “Dealing With Difficult” Pro-Life People at Thanksgiving

The abortion chain Planned Parenthood published a new Thanksgiving guide for abortion activists who don’t know how to talk to their pro-life relatives across the dinner table.

Abortion industry leaders would prefer that people do not hear the pro-life position at all, but when it can’t be avoided, they want their supporters to dig their heels in and fight for the “right” to kill unborn babies in abortions, even at Thanksgiving.

“Your dinner companions may say hurtful, offensive things about race, gender identity, sexual harassment and assault, birth control coverage, abortion, or any number of topics — which can feel stressful, isolating, or enraging,” the abortion business wrote.

It gave four tips to help people “feel safe” if they think they might face those situations around the dinner table.

The first was just to avoid those family members if possible.

“Make decisions about what to do around Thanksgiving so you feel safe, whether that means not going home at all, going home with a friend or partner by your side, or only visiting for dinner,” the guide stated.

Second, abortion activists should find a family member who will “love and respect” them – which means taking their side, not just respecting their point of view.

“The more people in your family who can call people out … on their problematic behavior, the less acceptable it will be,” the guide advised.

The third tip was the best one: have an open, respectful conversation with relatives who disagree.

“Practice asking questions, finding a value in their sentiment you can agree on, and starting from there. This is hard work, but you only get better at it if you keep trying,” the guide advised.

But the fourth tip circled back to abortion advocacy, advising people that it’s ok to tell their conservative relatives that they are being nasty because they don’t want unborn babies killed — and then threaten to cut off all contact with them if they don’t change.

“It’s totally ok to tell someone that their language or behavior is hurtful and unacceptable to you,” the guide advised. “Tell them about the impact it has on you and why, and what the consequences of their actions are to the larger community. Tell them you expect better, and what the consequences are if they don’t change (like cutting off contact with them or leaving).”

It’s hardly surprising coming from a group that destroys families by aborting unborn babies and often damaging their parents psychologically for a lifetime.
