Dear Planned Parenthood,
I am confused by your faulty logic. Lately, your organization’s tweets have confounded me. Since you are a militant pro-abortion organization, why do some of your tweets express pro-life thoughts?
In response to the Syrian refugee crisis, your CEO Cecile Richards remarked that “it has been appalling to watch leaders of this country turn their backs on people in need of compassion and safety.” We need to protect and defend our nation’s children, particularly the unborn because they are in need of “compassion and safety.” Children in need should hold a high place in our tender hearts. As humans, it is our natural tendency to care for the hurting people in our society, and who else needs our care more than those who cannot care for themselves?
Recently, your Pastoral board released a prayer to aid our country in the wake of the shooting at your Colorado clinic. It's passionate words implored God for “compassion on the whole human family.” The whole human family includes the littlest members who develop within the womb. What better way to show “compassion” than to the unborn who will grow up to be future citizens of our great nation? What better way to “unite us in the bonds of love” than by fostering a future generation of caring people who care for victims during turbulent times of violence and shootings?
All American citizens care deeply about their rights. Cecile Richards remarked that “no mother in the world wants her daughter to have fewer rights than she did.” This is true. However, you fail to mention the millions of daughters killed in the womb, given no rights at all. If these little ones receive the chance to live past utero, would you love them and treat them as daughters deserving of inalienable rights? You never know how the unborn generation can change the world, if you just give them the chance to live.
