What’s PP doing on MLK Day?

Sheila Liaugminas | Monday, 18 January 2010

On the anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest civil rights leaders in history, who eloquently preached and fought for the sanctity of human life and the dignity of every human being, two stories that crossed my path struck me as jarring.

Planned Parenthood is sending condoms and birth control pills to Haiti.

“At the International Planned Parenthood secure giving web page, the abortion giant says PROFAMIL has been operating in Haiti since 1984 to provide “sexual and reproductive healthcare.”

“The group “educates the public about prevention and ensures widespread access to condoms” to “young people aged 10-25″ with “regular condom demonstrations.”

“In other words, Planned Parenthood is asking for money to help it pass out condoms and birth control to children who are looking for their next meal and medical care for injuries they and their family sustained in the earthquake.

“The Planned Parenthood Help Haiti fundraising site says its local affiliate “meets regularly with the Minister of Health to develop strategies for increasing access” to birth control and contraception and that the group regularly targets “rural communities where the people are totally isolated” and likely have little access to food and water now.”

Concerned Women for America president Wendy Wright said: “As corpses fill the streets and the world wonders how few Haitians will survive this crisis of mass proportions, Planned Parenthood’s goal is to reduce their numbers even more,”…

“Planned Parenthood exhibits its racist intentions again. If successful, Haitians would be denied the joy of children and the hope that their country will live on,” she added.” Full article.
