For the third straight year, Planned Parenthood, the nation's No. 1 abortion provider, is selling greeting cards with the holiday message "Choice on Earth."

This year's offering, which includes bright pink snow flakes and the now-infamous phrase, is available at the organization's online store.
Two years ago, outcry about the cards in the media, Planned Parenthood claimed, actually spiked sales of the items, as well as "Choice on Earth" T-shirts.
"'Tis the season to share with family, friends, colleagues and loved ones the message of 'choice on earth.' Place your orders now for the 2004 Holiday Card," states the card's page on the group's online store.
Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International, slammed Planned Parenthood for once again offering the greeting cards.
"In its continual attempt to 'normalize' abortion, Planned Parenthood has once again chosen to offend the Christian community by releasing the latest edition of its 'Choice on Earth' holiday cards," said Sedlak in a statement. "Contrary to the open-minded image the abortion organization aims to present for itself, Planned Parenthood has zero tolerance for anyone or any religious group that recognizes abortion as an evil act that kills a pre-born baby."
The controversial theme is derived from a passage in the Gospel of Luke, where an angel announces to shepherds the birth of their savior in Bethlehem.

The King James version of the Bible states: "And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"
"By replacing 'peace' with 'choice,' or more accurately, 'killing the innocent on earth,' Planned Parenthood is essentially saying 'abortion on earth,'" Sedlak said. "This blatant mockery of Christian values and of Christ Himself truly demonstrates the bigoted, anti-religion, anti-God nature of Planned Parenthood."
Does the inside say:
"Mary wouldn't have had to give birth in a manger if only she could have gone to Planned Parenthood..."
They really scraped the bottom of the uteris for that one.
"...I see dead fetuses."
If they get there way, there will be only choice left on earth as all the people will be gone.
Well, you sure wouldn't wanna share the message of Jeezus, would you?
Couldn't some promoters of school vouchers and homeschooling issue "School Choice on Earth" cards so as to compete, and dilute, the message of the abortionists?
Herod celebrated the first Christmas - in his own fashion.
The front of this shirt proudly proclaims: "I had a child." The back urges people to "Choose life."
T-shirts are available in regular and women's styles.
If I receive one of those cards I will return it with the Gospel message included.
The underlying message cries out for an artist rendition not of snowflakes but of Herod.
Well, they really couldn't say "Peace on Earth" could they, since their mission is one of violence and destruction. How about "Pieces on Earth"? They could send that around to all the Muslim terrorists, they believe in killing children too.
I would return it, by registered mail, with the nastiest, goriest, and most awful dead victim of abortion picture I could find.
Kind of ironic for a Jew to run an organization founded by a Nazi sympathizer to implement Nazi population control policies.
If I believed in reincarnation, I'd suspect that maybe Feldt spent one of her past lives herding her Jewish brothers and sisters into the gas chambers.
