Yesterday, a columnist for Human Events (unfortunately, it was not Ann Coulter) sent a link advertising the latest t-shirt for Planned Parenthood. The text of the brief advertisement follows:
They have finally arrived! Planned Parenthood is proud to offer yet another t-shirt in our new social fashion line: "I Had an Abortion" fitted T-shirts are now available. These soft and comfortable fitted tees assert a powerful message in support of women's rights. Order yours for $15 each.
The columnist who sent me that link also asked what do you think about Planned Parenthood selling t-shirts that celebrate abortion? Well, heres what I think:
I think that the notion that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare was never really the position of Al Gore, the Democrats, or Planned Parenthood.
I think that John Kerry is more honest than Al Gore. He admits that life begins at conception but still thinks that abortion should be legal. I think that John Kerry is a real humanitarian.
I think that America has been involved in an unjust war on the unborn for over thirty years.
I think that liberals are right when they say that a nations greatness is measured by how it treats those who cannot fend for themselves.
I think that I am lucky to have parents who are pro-life.
I think that many people who are pro choice are glad that they were born before 1973. Otherwise, they might not be able to make choices.
I think about the night that my wife spent six hours with a woman who was having her second miscarriage. While the young woman was passing the fetus and writhing in pain, she was thinking about the two abortions she had previously. She was also thinking that she would never be able to have a child now that she wanted one. She may have been thinking about how she had been misled by Planned Parenthood and the Womens Resource Center.
I think about feminists on my campus who violate the civil liberties of groups who wish to provide comfort for those women who need love and support, not condemnation. I think that they need someone who will share the Truth with them after their lives have been destroyed by the lies of Planned Parenthood.
I think about campus feminists who pass out condoms and put Planned Parenthood advertisements in every womans bathroom stall on campus.
I think about my failed efforts to get campus feminists to debate the abortion issue on our campus. I think about a North Carolina chapter of Planned Parenthood that declined a campus debate on abortion saying, It is our policy not to debate the abortion issue.
I think about the early feminists, the true feminists, like Susan B. Anthony, who were steadfastly opposed to abortion.
I think about all of the abortion clinics in minority communities. I think that the next Martin Luther King was probably aborted years ago.
I think that Margaret Sanger would have been proud to see the genocide against African Americans that has been launched in the name of choice. I think that she would be proud to see that this genocide is sponsored, celebrated, and embraced by the Democratic Party.
I think that those in Congress who voted against the ban on partial birth abortion should wear t-shirts saying I have the blood of innocent children on my hands.
I think that Jesus Christ loved us before we were born. I also think that He was single for all of his 33 years.
I think about Clintons former Surgeon General, Dr. Joycelyn Elders, when she said that pro lifers need to get over this love affair with the fetus. I think that Planned Parenthood has a love affair with abortion.
I think about Planned Parenthood telling teenagers that having an abortion is just like picking a scab. I think about someone wearing a t-shirt that says I just picked a scab in order to convey a powerful message in support of women's rights.
I think about American churches paying for the abortions of church employees.
I think that Psalm 139 speaks with finality on the issue of abortion.
I think that abortion is the most important issue in the coming election. I think that is true every election year. In fact, think that abortion is the most important moral issue of our time.
When I hear college professors comparing George W. Bush to Adolph Hitler, I think about Hitlers assertion that the demand that defective people be kept from propagating equally defective offspring represents the most humane act of mankind.
When I visit the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, I think about abortion.
I think that we are blessed to have George W. Bush as our president.
I think that by the time you read this article, our nation will see its 45,000,000th abortion since Roe v. Wade.
I think that pro-life groups should make their own t-shirts saying your mother didnt.
NOW you know what I think.
That's the truth.
Kudos to Dr. Mike, a fellow Mississippi State alum.
Well done! I highly recommend his book, too.
Maybe they think it is a great pick-up line. Sort of says 'She Bangs'.
Won't it be a great day when we are governed by John Kerry and the crowd that supports Planned Parenthood? We cannot allow that to happen, people. Get out there and vote in November as if your very life depended on it (which it probably will!).
I think the tide of things is slowly shifting against abortion. Lots of ways to tell, but the growing hysteria of P.P activists is a good indicator. They are really pulling out all the stops to try to normalize this practice, something they didn't have to do ten years ago.
These T-shirts are wonderful though. If you see a woman wearing one, you know to stay the heck away!
Thanks for posting.. Great article. Hopefully these people wearing these t-shirts will get knocked on their A## in the mall..
(Credit for "AbortaPalooza" term goes to WND, I believe. Anyhoo, it's not my idea.)
And what about those who regret and are sorry about thier decision to have an abortion?
Only God can judge......
If I walk up to some ho' sporting this shirt and call her a baby killer, would that be a hate crime?
Maybe they should make tee-shirts in extra-extra-extra-extra-small with the words "My mom had an abortion" on them.
You know...I honestly can't even believe a woman who is pro-abortion would want to wear that.
But any of us can say the truth about the practise itself...which is that it kills a human baby and is terribly wrong.
...and society, like it does with murder, can and should take steps to protect itself from such a heidious wrong. Instead, our society has called it legal and therebby perpetrated one of the most horrific holocausts imaginable.
How sad, no one to put that shirt on. That person was washed down the drain, or put in a jar for stem cell research.
