Planned Parenthood Tries To Lecture with Mother's Day Message, But Fails To See the Irony


Sunday was Mother’s Day, the day our nation has set aside to honor all of the women — past, present, and even future — who have given birth to and raised their children to eventually become adults.

Sadly, there is a massive and well-supported organization that subversively undermines the fundamental concept of motherhood by virtue of its advocacy for the murderous procedure that rips unborn babies from the wombs of would-be mothers.

That organization is Planned Parenthood.

Despite its decades of work preventing millions upon millions of women from becoming mothers by way of abortions, it nevertheless had the audacity to weigh in with an incredibly ironic message for Mother’s Day.

In a post to Twitter, the Planned Parenthood Global account tweeted, “Today and everyday, we honor mothers around the world and the people who guide us, provide for us, love us — mother us. Happy Mother’s Day to you all.”

The tweet included a picture of a mother and young child with a caption that read, “Planned Parenthood is committed to fighting for mothers, women, and the families that depend on them throughout the world — because every woman should be able to decide if and when to be a mother.”

Readers may note that the message from Planned Parenthood said nothing about “fighting” on behalf of unborn children, namely because its entire business revolves around killing such unborn babies, rather than helping to bring them into the world.

Should abortion proponents sit out celebrations of motherhood?

The truly ironic aspect of Planned Parenthood’s message is the focus at the end about women having the right “to decide if and when” they would become a mother.

The organization’s expressed concern for a woman’s right to make choices apparently only applies to women old enough to bear children, and is inapplicable to the millions of young potential mothers who were aborted.

Those aborted girls were never given the chance to grow to adulthood and make the choice for themselves to be a mother or not, as their tiny lives were snuffed out before they even really began.

In other words, Planned Parenthood’s abortion activism has served to deny the ability “to decide” for countless women over the years.

The lives of those little girls were brutally ended before they were even born, much less before they reached the stage where they could become mothers themselves — if they so choose.

For the record, setting abortion procedures aside, women — especially women in the Western world — already have several options available to help them “decide if and when” to become a mother, such as abstinence and a variety of birth control measures.

Of all organizations and all holidays to chose from, Planned Parenthood is arguably the worst one to say anything on a sacred date like Mother’s Day, which again, celebrates the act of giving birth and raising children, not murdering children in the womb and sucking out their remnants with a vacuum.

In the future, Planned Parenthood might want to remain quiet and sit out celebrations of motherhood, as the organization’s very explicit purpose is actually ending motherhood by ending children.

One can only wonder if the abortion advocates will offer up a similarly ironic message for Father’s Day, despite their work ending the lives of an untold number of little boys that could grow up to be fathers one day, or destroying the dreams of adult men hoping to raise children who instead find out their future child has been terminated in the womb.

This incredibly ironic and tone-deaf message for Mother’s Day from Planned Parenthood is nothing short of despicable, given what the organization does.

They should be ashamed of themselves for pretending to care about motherhood while actively working to destroy the very idea of motherhood.
