Let There Be Choice on Earth?

Planned Parenthood has completely lost it (assuming it ever had it). Once again, the abortion provider is celebrating the birth of Christ with its annual Christmas-time “Choice on Earth” campaign. Yes, that’s right, Choice on Earth. You can’t make this up.

How singularly diabolical this campaign is. Imagine, Planned Parenthood unveils this credo at Christmas-time no less, a time made possible by the Blessed Mother’s choice of life, which brought the Christ child into the world.

And what else did Christ bring in the process? Of course, he brought peace on earth. Yes, peace on earth, not choice on earth.

Note that Planned Parenthood’s abortion feminists deem “choice” synonymous with “peace.”

Imagine it set to music: “Let there be choice on earth, and let it begin with me.”

Imagine it at Mass: “May choice be with you…. And also with you…. Let us offer each other the sign of choice.”

Of course, abortion produces the opposite of peace. Just ask any woman who has had an abortion. Their choice brought anything but peace. It brought turmoil. It brought nightmares. It has brought personal hell, not peace.

Speaking at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC in February 1994, Mother Teresa stated that “the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion.” Indeed it is.

And it makes you wonder: Who or what in the world is writing slogans and handling PR at Planned Parenthood? Can their thinking be this distorted, this perverse? It really is like the Devil himself at work, sitting at a word processor at Planned Parenthood headquarters, chuckling to himself: Hah, hah, now here’s one: “Choice on Earth” at Christmas-time. Hmmm.

Actually, the only reason I doubt it’s the Devil is because I can’t imagine the Devil being so naïve, especially when Planned Parenthood is trying to maintain its public image while mean, nasty Republicans cut its taxpayer funding.

We live in a bizarre world of bizarre people, and few seem quite as surreal as Planned Parenthood.

Choice on Earth?” God help us.
