“Being a mother is incredibly difficult, even in the very best of circumstances,” wrote Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, in an appeal that went out on a mournful note before the holiday. Bizarrely, the fundraising e-mail implied that third world suffering would increase if the forced participation of the American taxpayer in subsidizing the abortion industry did not continue.
Just remarkable: ordinary Americans paused Sunday to celebrate the joys of motherhood, while the CEO of the world’s largest abortion provider made her tone-deaf pitch to “Please help with your Mother’s Day contribution.” Her emphasis on the difficulties inherent to motherhood highlighted her inability to see that those costs provide the opportunity of becoming more in motherhood than any woman can fully know as she anticipates the birth of her unique child.
Strangely, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also sent out a Mother’s Day fundraising e-mail, seeking funds to attack Republicans who cared enough about life to vote against the abortion lobby, which works to gather more than $360 million in tax dollars annually.
In an appeal titled, “the Republican War on Women,” Pelosi wrote: “Your actions today can make a difference for many of the women in your life — whether it is for a friend, your sister, your wife, your daughter, or yourself.”
“Fundraising with a Mother’s Day appeal on behalf of efforts that would prevent women from knowing the joys of motherhood seems surreal,” said Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest, a mother of five. “Mothers joyfully invest the price they pay to build their children’s lives. As mothers we treasure the laughter and endure the sorrow that is an intrinsic part of a whole life. When they are considering whether to embrace the birth of a child, women deserve to be encouraged that they can find themselves strong and able to overcome any obstacles. Motherhood is worth it.” – Americans United for Life
Celebrate motherhood by funding infanticide? Clueless and classless. But what would you expect from utterly vulgar people?
