A Very Special Planned Parenthood Fund

20th Sep 08 (Sat) Leave a comment Go to comments

Planned Parenthood is a great organization.  They help women of all stripes who are in need of medical advice, birth control, et cetera.

I don’t know if you knew this, but you can make a Planned Parenthood donation in honor of someone else.  They get a little card saying that a donation was made in their name.  Hmmm… who deserves to get donations made in their name to Planned Parenthood?  What’s that you say?  Sarah Palin? The running mate of John McCain?  The Governor of Alaska who thinks that it’s OK to teach abstinence only sex education, who also happens to have a 17-year old pregnant daughter?  OK.  Yep, she deserves a donation in her name.

You can send as little as $5.  Even if only $5, everything helps… Planned Parenthood.  The part about making it in honor of Sarah Palin is just icing on the cake.  And, donations to Planned Parenthood are tax deductible.  Whereas donations to Sarah Palin are not.  And we all know that Sarah Palin would want us to give money to PP instead of her anyway, right?

The link to PP’s donation site: https://secure.ga0.org/02/pp10000_inhonor
To their main site as that link above looks suspect (but isn’t, I checked): http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

The address to make the donation in honor of:

Sarah Palin
c/o McCain for President/Sarah Palin
1235 S. Clark Street 1st Floor
Arlington, VA 22202

You know what to do…

    You could give to Planned Parenthood, and have messy pre-natal abortions, or you could have safe and effective post-natal abortions and save your money. Or is it murder if you can hear them scream?

    Planned Parenthood does a lot of good for women who need help with affordable (or free in some cases) ob/gyn check-ups, advice, birth control. Immediately pointing to “abortion” shows that you are unfamiliar with PP.

    But since you’re going down that route…

    A question – – If life begins at conception, and the miscarriage rate in the U.S. is roughly 33% (25% within the first 6 weeks, 8% after the first 6 weeks)… then isn’t “God” one of the bigger killers of unborn babies?

    Is he not all powerful? Or maybe he didn’t know the women were pregnant and therefore couldn’t do anything in time? Or maybe he’s just unloving?

    Life does begin at conception. Babies who die in the womb really die.

    You keep assuming I’m like all evangelicals. I ain’t. God only loves His people. The Bible is pretty clear about that, despite the idiotic opinions of most evangelicals and atheists who read the Bible literalistically.

    The simple answer to why babies die in the womb is because this is a fallen world. The effects of Original Sin are pervasive.

    Yeah, they really die because of the fallen world which was a result of a god who set a rule up that he himself couldn’t abide by sin, even though he knew his creation would sin. So then he punishes his creation for something that he knew they were going to do before they did it. Then he comes down to die to appease himself for something that he has to forgive someone else of doing because he couldn’t abide by sin of his creation that he knew would sin, because he created them to sin. Ridiculous. Original Sin is a ridiculous train of thought.

    I thought you interpreted the Bible as the inspired, perfect word of god?

    I still have to reply to your June email to me about “how to understand the bible”… I admit, I didn’t even read (skim) it until this weekend… maybe by thanksgiving I’ll have time to respond.

    If you’re not supposed to read it literally, then what’s the point? God doesn’t know how to give clear instructions? God speaks in metaphors? I’d rather read it literally than believe in it literally. It’s an atrocious book, especially if you plan on living your life by its standards and stories.

    I am curious where it says life begins at conception… and not from a poetic book like Psalms or a figurative discussion of god’s plan for one of the prophets before he was born (Jeremiah, maybe?).

    The Bible is the inspired, perfect word of God.

    There are a couple of places where a child inside the womb is mentioned as a person, although there is no reference specifically to life beginning at conception. When else could it begin? Psalm 139 (which is one of those off-limits books) and the early chapters of Luke (or is it Matthew?) where John the Baptist leaps in his mother’s womb are the places that come to my mind.

    4000 children die everyday in this country as a result of abortion. Doesn’t that give you that sick feeling in your stomach to think of all of them?

    Psalms was only off limits in that it’s primarily a poetic book. And one reference is David writing about himself in the womb… which isn’t really anything of meaning, outside of speculation on David’s part.

    I don’t know when life begins. But I’m fairly certain that a zygote is not a living being. An embryo is not a human being. The chance of one coming to term is quite low in the general scheme of things anyway. I wouldn’t call expelling an embryo murder.

    Partial birth abortions are the messy ones… but also the rare ones. I think most people, even most pro-choice people, are very much against partial-birth and/or late-term abortions. That’s not what’s on the table in the pro-choice, pro-life debate. It’s a strawman argument.

    I’m not pro-abortion, but I don’t think the Government should legislate itself on a woman’s reproductive organ.
