Planned Parenthood Movin’ on Up

Planned Parenthood recently announced their intention of building so-called clinics in more well-to-do places. This is outlined in the following story,

Extending the brand: Planned Parenthood hits suburbia

Noted Townhall columnist, Star Parker, wrote a piece in response,

Planned Parenthood and the ‘marketing of meaninglessness’

Definitely worth a read, here is a sample,

The article, “Extending the brand: Planned Parenthood Hits Suburbia,” discusses how the organization is mobilizing its now-considerable resources — a $1 billion dollar budget, with a reported $100 million-plus surplus — to build glitzy new multimillion-dollar centers and express outlets in malls — to reach women of means and everyone else.

Soon your daughter, too, can learn that the point of her life is her own pleasure and that other human beings, in or outside of the womb, are mere tools to be used toward that end. And, according to the organization’s president, Cecile Richards, they want to reach young men as well as women.

What, after all, is our national specialty if not marketing? So, as Starbucks is to coffee, as Wal-Mart is to volume sales, so Planned Parenthood is to nihilism.

    Hey Laz,

    I read Star also. I had read about this on another news site. I wish they (PP) would outline the exact plan to implement this so we can put a spot light on it. This is where we are heading. It has always seemed odd to me that parental permission to give your child an aspirin is a must but people fight for children to be able to abort without parental knowledge. If we now put it (abortion) on the same level as a food court or buying new lip gloss, we are on a fast track to hell itself.

    Yeah I’m a big fan of Star Parker, her story is pretty inspirational.

    As for the “issue” of abortion, isn’t it strange how we are told (within and without the church) that the focus needs to shift from abortion to “more pressing” issues like helping the hungry, helpless, poor etc?

    Not that we shouldn’t care and be pro active in regards to so-called social justice, but who is more helpless than an unborn child?

    I feel that abortion is very black and white. If it is murder, no abortion allowed, if it isn’t, no regulation needed (except the kind of regulation allowed for any medical procedure).

    When does life begin? What if we are off a day, what then? Is it murder on the 16th week 1 day after conception but not murder before the 16th week mark?

    America has put itself on a very slippery slope.

    Yes, I agree that this issue trumps all others. I posted about it, Do you have a litmus test?
