Over at Dawn Patrol I see that Planned Parenthood has bought some property in Charleston, SC. Kathy Schmugge, coordinator for the Family Life Office for the Diocese of Charleston, has a guest post about the development, and plans for a an ecumenical protest.
"But, Planned Parenthood provides other health-care needs for women, not just abortion!" Well, abortion is bad enough, thank you very much. And any of the other services can be received at other places that do not also kill innocent human beings on the same premises. And abortion remains -- overwhelmingly -- the one "service" the organization provides.
Check out the website of the LA Advocate, an organization of students at UCLA, who have done some rather bold investigative reporting of local Planned Parenthood branches, recording them suggesting that a prospective client lie about her age (to avoid California's parental notification law), or suggesting that it was ok for the organization to receive money that was given explicitly so that they would specifically abort black babies.
And let's not forget the connection between Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and eugenics.
