WASHINGTON, March 31, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On Thursday, March 24, the director of public affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida sent an e-mail to advocates for the abortion operation telling them how to "express your appreciation" to Florida Republican senators who split with the GOP leadership by voting against a bill intended to save Terri Schiavo. The message listed the names and contact information for the six senators.
"Apparently Planned Parenthood isn't content with killing 244,628 innocent children in the last year through abortion. Now the harmful organization is telling its advocates how to thank elected officials for voting against a measure aimed at saving the life of Terri Schiavo," said David Bereit, national director of American Life League's STOPP International.
In a Wednesday, March 30, phone conversation with Bereit, the Planned Parenthood executive admitted to sending the e-mail and said, "We just felt that it was pretty courageous of them (the six senators) to do what they did, and it's always a good idea to thank legislators when they do something you like."
When asked by Bereit about the specifics of the measure, the abortion clinic employee admitted, "I really am not sure exactly what the legislation said," but explained that she sent out the e-mail because, "I think probably the majority of our supporters feel that there should not be government intrusion, that the court should be the ones handling this issue, as it has, and so that's why I did it."
"It shouldn't surprise anyone that Planned Parenthood and its supporters think the courts should ultimately decide who lives and who dies in America," Bereit explained. "After all, it was the courts that forced abortion upon America, giving Planned Parenthood the ability to make over $100 million a year by terminating innocent children."
Bereit added, "This is just one more example of why people across America are uniting to oppose Planned Parenthood and its destructive agenda."
The courts are not part of the government??
Good catch. Boy are they evil.
Of course not, they ARE the government. Haven't you figured that out yet?
It's truly about power. The power to take innocent life is the most absolute form of power a human being can wield over another. It's the return of the Einsatzgruppen.
The lovers of death, Planned Parenthood, turn my stomach.
So much for a woman's right to control her own body... I guess if its not furthering PP's abortion agenda then its okay to let Greer and Michael do whatever they want to Terris body.
Just another late-term abortion.
There's consolation in knowing that they will have eternity to remember how wrong they were.
Yeah, don't you love that? They've been arguing all along to keep the government out of people's lives - not just with Terri either - but champion the courts who enact their "legislation".
There is sooo much people do not know about planned parenthood and its "purpose". Its been genocide from from the beginning.
So sad, so evil.
It is the culture of death.
God have mercy on us.
(going to hug my kids...)
I wonder when the National Organization of Women nominate Michael Schiavo as ''man of the year''
.....a bit strong Moderator?
After watching the pro-death movement toss gambit after gambit (and succeed) with the help of their very unConstitutionally minded black robed lap pets..........well,
Legislatures have become meaningless; pass a law and they'll declare it unconstitutional based on the most arcane reason you can think of.
It's an oligarchy ruling America at the present. An oligarchy of judges who on any given day can interpret the law based on how their 'tummy' feels.
