Planned Parenthood Skewered Over Mother’s Day Tweet

Commentary by Susan Brinkmann, OCDS

Planned Parenthood may think that the public is falling for its disingenuous prattle about wanting to protect “women’s reproductive rights,” but the backlash from their latest tweet celebrating motherhood proves that the abortion giant isn’t fooling anyone.

The nation’s largest abortion provider, which kills more than 300,000 babies a year, posted a cheerful tweet yesterday which read: “Happy #MothersDay! Planned Parenthood is proud to celebrate mothers in the U.S. and around the world. We’re committed to fighting for a world where all mothers can live healthy lives and raise their children in peace.”

Yeah right.

As Twitchy reports, the company didn’t get away with it.

“This could be one of the most confusing tweets I’ve ever seen," one person commented."People who kill and murder babies for a living want to wish Mother’s a good day?! You can’t make this stuff up...”

Another chimed in: “You killed 321,384 of those children last year alone. You may just wanna sit this holiday out, PP.”

The criticism continued on Planned Parenthood's own Twitter page – even amidst the usual trite platitudes about how wonderful Planned Parenthood is for letting women make their own choices.

“Brought to you by the propaganda department of the despicable Planned Parenthood . . .” one user quipped.

Another user tweeted a comic strip that featured a woman saying to her doctor, “I’m happy I can have a safe abortion here.” The doctor replies: “LOL. There’s no such thing as a safe abortion. At least one of you will die today.”

This commenter made a chilling comparison: “This tweet has the equivalence of ISIS wishing us a Happy 4th of July.”

Another person wondered, “Don’t they mean raise their children in pieces?”

Sadly, this comment put together a much more appropriate slogan for the only kind of Mother’s Day Planned Parenthood celebrates: “Happy-I-was-going-to-be-a-mother-but-I-killed-it-instead-day.”

This isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood came out with a paradoxical tweet that lit up social media. The last time the abortion giant stuck its foot in its mouth was in early April when Cecile Richards sent out a tweet advocating adoption – for dogs – which led to a similar roasting in the Twittersphere.

At this point, it's becoming increasingly clear that these missives can only be coming from a mind that has been completely duped by its own lies.

During this week, as we prepare for the great feast of Pentecost, let us ask the Holy Spirit to remove the scales from the eyes of the perpetrators of abortion in America so that may finally realize the truth. What they're doing is not about women’s rights or providing health care – it’s about destroying whole generations of innocent American human lives.

And may they be given the grace to handle such a devastating revelation.
