What is the deal with Planned Parenthood? I’ve wondered how Planned Parenthood‘s promotion of wanton sex under the guise of “safe sex” really fits with its organizational premise of Planned Parenthood. (Have you ever really pondered this group’s name?)
If Planned Parenthood were legit, it would sponsor something like an “Act Responsibly” campaign. One seriously has to ask why Planned Parenthood doesn’t take this sort of approach… …to promote personal responsibility, the value of family, and self-esteem this Valentine’s weekend
Of course what got me started thinking about Planned Parenthood was all of the recent publicity over the allegedly controversial Super Bowl ad sponsored by focus on the family. One thing this commercial certainly did was to make the pro-abortion zealots look just as crazy and desperate as they are.
When some pro-abortion women’s groups learned about the ad, they tried to bully CBS into pulling it. That generated a super-sized pre-Super Bowl controversy that helped anti-abortion forces gain even more publicity. Thanks to all the buzz, Focus on the Family happily reported that its website traffic was exploding, subscribers to its magazine were up and a Facebook page for the ad attracted 230,000 fans…. No supporter of Roe v. Wade can escape the truth. With one choice, you could end up with a strapping son; with another choice, you don’t. Demonizing the ad featuring this mother and son doesn’t change that. It only helps the pro child pro life cause.
The stupid women’s group comment of the week maybe even of the whole year came from the national organization of women’s leader after she viewed the ad she denounced it as promoting violence against women… what a troll! How can anyone ever take anything these women say seriously ever again?
Valentine’s Day is a great tradition and a fun occasion to celebrate romance. It’s supposed to be an evening of champagne, chocolates and flowers but it can have consequences if revelers don’t ‘Act Responsibly. States which keep monthly statistics see an increase in the number of abortions during the months of January through April, right after New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day.
Everyone promotes drinking responsibly on New Year’s Eve and St. Patrick’s Day to prevent deaths. Why shouldn’t we also take the same approach to Valentine’s Day, and promote personal responsibility, the value of family, and self-esteem. No one wants to see an increase in deaths of anyone.
Personal responsibility is everyone’s responsibility. Personal responsibility and strong self-esteem begin at home, with parents teaching their children good values and encouraging young adults to do the right thing.
