One never knows which posts are going to get more attention than others. (Im usually wrong when I guess, actually.)
So I was surprised my blog on Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coasts Black Friday specials got quite a bit of traction, from Fox to the Christian Post to Human Events.
All the attention forced a response from the other side.
Writers at both Jezebel and RH Reality Check disputed whether Planned Parenthoods Black Friday $10 discount could be applied to abortions, although why should they care? If one supports unfettered abortion access, what does it matter whether a clinic dispenses coupons to make an abortion that much easier to get?
Nevertheless, here was their rationale, quoting Jezebel:
The newest outrage? Activist Jill Stanek believes she caught Florida Planned Parenthood offering discount abortions as a part of Black Friday celebrations. It makes a great headline get it? Black? Like the hearts of those who support a womans right to reproductive healthcare? Because the email offer broadcasted $10 off a clinic visit, she took that to assume it was a financial abortion incentive.
There are a few problems with this conclusion, the biggest of which is that Florida has a 24-hour waiting period, which would make a coupon sent out near a Thanksgiving holiday worthless.
But the $10 off applied to a visit that day, so it didnt matter whether one had to wait 24 hours for that days appointment.
Silly pro-aborts cant even read coupons right.
Killing black babies? Makes sense.
why not usher in the christmas season by offering a special on murdering infants
makes sense to me too (from a certain perspective that is)
