The Sickest Christmas Present. Ever.

What do you get the modern, progressive woman who has everything? How about a voucher she can trade in for an abortion?

A chain of birth control clinics in the U.S. has outraged pro-life campaigners by offering Christmas gift vouchers to pay for abortions.
Planned Parenthood - which operates almost 800 health centres - says it started the scheme in response to the credit crunch.
The gift cards, which start at £15, can be used to pay for any of the 'services' or 'birth control methods' offered at the chain's 100 Indiana branches but Katie Walker of the anti-abortion American Life League said the scheme was 'perverting the meaning of Christmas'.

Well, I suppose it could be argued Planned Parenthood are just part of the rich tapestry of the Christmas Story. They play the part of King Herod.

Hallo Paulinus,
What a truly horrible thing! To celebrate the Birth of Our Lord in to this world with gift certificates for infanticide.
King Herod indeed!

By the way, this is my first visit to your blog - I like it!

Yep, Paulinus, when I stayed with a Pro life community in the US, and we "picketed" (ie, prayed silently, and handed out literature to those who wanted to take it) an abortuary, the "deathscort" as he was known, (the chap who escorted the ladies in past us, so that they wouldn't have a chance of receiving any pro-life literature), was dressed as Santa Claus, and had the cheek to try and hand out sweeties to the children who were praying with us. It seemed so utterly sick, but the guy missed the point, even when someone tried to explain who Santa Claus really was!
