Planned Parenthood Just Snatched The Merry Right Out Of Christmas

December 8, 2008

Ok ok, I know I’ve been off the radar, but it is for a good reason, I am currently starting up a new ministry at my church and I am sort of like a one man army right now. Running to and fro, putting in proposals, asking for funds and blah blah blah, anyhoo on with my post. The other day as I was working on some church stuff I had one ear focused on the world around me and I just happened to catch a snippet of a very unusual news brief. After what I heard I knew I had to chase the original story down and post it for all the world to see. Folks you can’t even make this stuff up. This is the real deal Holy Field.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Gift certificates have become a popular holiday gift option, but a controversial new one, already has people talking.

For the first time, Planned Parenthood in Indiana is offering gift certificates. The organization said a big increase in calls and visits from newly unemployed and uninsured Hoosiers prompted what it calls the unusual, yet practical gift option.

“People are making really tough decisions about putting gas in their car and food on their table, so we know that many women especially put healthcare at the bottom of their list to do,” said Chrystal Struben-Hall, Vice President of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.

The certificates come in $25 increments. They can be used for everything from birth control to $58 examinations that include breast exams and pap tests. Men who receive healthcare at Planned Parenthood can use them too.

“They can be seen for sexually transmitted disease screenings, HIV tests and general prostate exams and those kinds of things,” said Struben-Hall.

Some Hoosiers 24-Hour News 8 talked to asked if the gift certificates could be used towards abortions. The answer is yes. But, Planned Parenthood said that’s not the purpose of the gift certificates.

Struben-Hall said, “They really are intended for preventative healthcare. We decided not to put restrictions on the gift certificates so it’s for whatever people feel they need the services for most.”

Indiana Family Institute President Curt Smith said he is appalled by the certificates.

“I think the way to help family planning is to give the money where there’s no agenda. So if somebody wants to help a woman at a time of crisis, they can support the life centers throughout Indiana,” said Smith.

Planned Parenthood hopes philanthropists look at it differently. The organization hopes people might purchase the certificates, and then turn them back in for their patients who need reproductive health care, but can’t pay for it.

Uhm Ok whatever….Anointed~

    PPFA offered free abortions for women whose husbands died in 9/11 while pregnant.

    “Planned Parenthood of New York City offered women free abortions and other related services as a response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.
    The goal of the offer, good for 12 days in September, was “to reach out to women who have been displaced and ease their fears,” the group said in a press release.

    “Everyone wants to do something,” spokesperson Ali Bartolone said in the statement. “This is our response; this is our way of helping women in need.”

    And this is what happens when you’re ignorant.
    “Planned Parenthood of New York City said its health centers were booked to capacity during the time of the offer, Sept. 18 to 29.”

    Thank you for your comment , I see Planned Parenthood in it infinite wisdom felt that the least they could do was kill the babes that the women were carrying of their loved ones, which was possibly the only link they have left to their spouse and what a great way to remember them, by killing the one thing hey have left and that is the life they created together. Planned parenthood is evil in ways I lack words to describe.
