Give The Gift of Abortion This Christmas

In what has to be the most disgusting thing I have heard of for a Christmas Present, Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana and Illinois are offering gift certificates for their services, including abortions.

Planned Parenthood said the stocking-stuffers — that range in value from $25 to $100 and can be ordered online — are redeemable for health services at clinics throughout the two states and can go to any service offered. "We decided not to put restrictions on the gift certificates, so it’s for whatever people feel they need the services for most," Chrystal Struben-Hall with Planned Parenthood of Indiana said.

In an ironic twist, the Planned Parenthood officials said that the vouchers would allow people to give friends and loved ones "the gift of life". Excuse me, but the last time I looked, an abortion was the death of an unborn child. I do not see the gift of life in this.
"People are making really tough decisions about putting gas in their car and food on their table," Struben-Hall said.
So those with unwanted pregnancies are forced to choose between eating, driving or killing the child in an abortion? There is another way, and it's called adoption.

There are several religious and pro-life groups expressing outraged, saying that at a time when millions are preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Planned Parenthood is offering a gift that could fund an abortion.
They can and will be used to end the lives of children at Christmas," said Cathy Ruse of the Family Research Council. She believes the gift certificates will anger many, even those who are not deeply religious. "A coupon for abortion at Christmastime?" Ruse said. "That’s just inherently offensive, I think, to all Americans.
It is very offensive to me, that much I can say.
