Amidst the Rubble, Planned Parenthood Looks Out for Itself

During this moment in history when human beings, trapped under concrete slabs are calling out to be rescued; a day in which people who have miraculously survived the Haiti earthquake do not have enough water to continue living; during a time when the UN and US are sending thousands of security personnelfor fear of riots and a “deteriorating security situation,” International Planned Parenthood, the world’s largest abortion provider, is opportunistically responding to this humanitarian crisis by collecting donations for “Sexual & Reproductive Health Services” for the people of Haiti.
Note the following immediate health needs in Haiti, according to the World Health Organization (WHO): search and rescue of survivors trapped underneath rubble; treatment of people with major trauma injuries; preventing the infection of wounds; provision of clean water and sanitation. Somehow “abortion services” did not make the list. Planned Parenthood will objectify and manipulate any person or situation to advance their agenda.
As Haiti begins to recover and grieve one of the most deadly catastrophes ever (possibly 200,000 lives lost), and as the United States approaches the anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 22 — a moment when 50,000,000 aborted children will be remembered — let us be clear that abortion is not health care. Not here in the United States, and not overseas.
