This Thanksgiving, Planned Parenthood wants people to thank its workers for helping to kill unborn babies.
Planned Parenthood runs more than 600 facilities and sees about 2.5 million patients annually. It also aborts about 320,000 unborn babies every year, more than any other group in the U.S.
Its employees are directly involved in abortions and abortion advocacy, fighting to keep late-term abortions legal and lobbying for laws to force taxpayers to fund abortions.
And for this, the billion-dollar abortion group wants people to give thanks this November. Earlier this month, its new CEO Leana Wen sent out fundraising letters asking for donations and thank you notes to its 35,000 staffers.
“As a doctor, I know being responsible for someone’s health — sometimes their very lives — is stressful, to say the least,” Wen said. “I did my job to deliver the best health care I could, but hearing from the people whose lives I touched — that helped me, too.”
She pointed supporters to a form letter that thanks employees for “providing quality, supportive care” and “putting the health and rights of patients ahead of politics.”
“Your compassion and commitment are needed now more than ever, and I am proud to stand with you. Thanks for always being there for the patients who rely on Planned Parenthood every day, no matter what,” the letter concludes.
Certainly, Planned Parenthood staffers are responsible for lives – including the lives of millions of unborn babies who are killed in abortions and sometimes their mothers, too.
Abortion is Planned Parenthood’s primary goal. Former employees say it is the abortion chain’s biggest money-maker. It even has been caught giving out awards to facilities for doing more abortions. Wen also has said that expanding abortions is one of her goals as the new CEO.
Pro-life advocates should give thanks that, despite all of Planned Parenthood’s lobbying and efforts to deceive, more women are choosing life for their unborn babies. Pro-life advocates and conservative judges are being appointed to leadership positions across the country, and states are enacting strong new pro-life measures to protect unborn babies. Pregnancy centers served nearly 2 million families in 2017. Pro-life students are advocating for greater support for pregnant and parenting students on their college campuses. And more abortion workers are leaving their jobs thanks to the outreach of compassionate pro-lifers.
There is a lot to be thankful for this holiday season, but Planned Parenthood gets it wrong. Most of all, people of all walks of life should give thanks for the precious babies who are alive today because their brave mothers chose life.
