Valentine’s Day and Planned Parenthood—Two Things That Should Never Go Together
From the American Life League (all.org)
When we think of Valentine’s Day, the things that come to mind might include roses, nice chocolates, and spending time with loved ones. However, for some, fundraising for abortion giant Planned Parenthood is synonymous with the national day of love. If you’re scratching your head in confusion, you’re not alone.
Leading up to February 14, Planned Parenthood and various local fundraisers are calling for volunteers and donations to aid the abortion machine. Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates-East posted on Twitter calling for volunteers in a way that mocks Valentine’s Day and the value of life: “Roses are red, violets are blue, to protect reproductive freedom, we need volunteers like you!”
Another PP affiliate, Planned Parenthood South Dakota Advocate, posted on Twitter with a fundraiser called “I heart Planned Parenthood.” According to the fundraiser page, “Your gift on I [heart] Planned Parenthood Day ensures essential sexual and reproductive health care—like STI testing, transgender hormone therapy, and abortions—are available to South Dakotans. It ensures comprehensive, culturally specific sex education is available across our state. And it fuels advocacy for sexual and reproductive health care for all.”
It’s clear that Planned Parenthood will leverage just about anything to make a buck.
Various local groups and businesses are hosting Valentine’s Day events where proceeds are donated to Planned Parenthood. The most obscene and offensive event, dubbed “The Village of Love,” being held in New York, is a concert benefiting Planned Parenthood where a line-up of 24 women will sing their favorite love songs.
The irony here is that women will be singing love songs in honor of a business designed to kill children and destroy women. Planned Parenthood makes its millions of dollars by preying on vulnerable mothers. The lies of PP tell women that “love” means being able to kill your child. But real love, and true love, is selflessness.
We see the perfect example of selfless love in our Lord on the cross, in mothers who sacrifice for their children every day, and in fathers who work hard to provide for their families.
Valentine’s Day should be reserved for celebrating real selfless love, not the selfishness and evil of money-hungry Planned Parenthood and its abortion proponents.
Masking Kids: The Left’s Extension of Abortion Culture
By Katie Pavlich, the Editor of Townhall.com
(Last) week a photo of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams went viral for all the wrong reasons.
During an event at a Georgia elementary school, Abrams was photographed sitting in front of a roomful of children. All of the kids were masked while Abrams, bearing a massive grin, was not. She was so proud of the event she tweeted a photo for the world to see.
Immediately people noticed the discrepancy and hypocrisy. When the justified outrage reached a fever pitch, the cringeworthy photo was deleted, and Abrams made her way to CNN to say she was wrong.
“I apologize,” Abrams said, trying to explain away her mask privilege. “I took the mask off because I was speaking remotely to two other classrooms and wanted all of them to hear me.”
What a novel idea, students being able to hear someone teaching inside a classroom. Abrams wanted to be heard, and therefore, took her mask off — literally and figuratively. Her statements in the aftermath were quite revealing.
Abrams said nothing, to CNN or during her remarks to students, about allowing children to be more comfortable while they learn. Her solution to the problem, even after getting blasted for her behavior, wasn’t to advocate for the kids to be unmasked. Instead, she argued they should continue to be muzzled inside their classrooms.
“Covid hygiene is going to be a point of debate for a very long time, and we can only follow the science and follow our circumstances, unfortunately in Georgia, we’re not at a place where that conversation [about lifting mask mandates in schools] is ready,” she continued.
As Democratic governors come to grips with negative polling in their own blue states about ongoing pandemic restrictions, mask mandates are being dropped. But in New York and California, adults can free their faces while children in school must remain masked up.
“Governor Kathy Hochul announced the end of the indoor mask mandate in New York State effective Thursday,” New York ABC 7 reports. “While Connecticut and New Jersey are already among a handful of states with plans to ease mask mandates in schools, Governor Hochul hasn’t made the same move, and won’t until the first week of March at the earliest.”
New York Governor Kathy Hochul has also been photographed maskless while surrounded by faceless elementary school children.
An understanding of leftist thought reveals their efforts to make adults comfortable at the expense of children is simply an extension of their deeply rooted pro-abortion philosophy.
With few exceptions, Democrats believe in abortion — many up until the birth of a baby — for the sake of convenience. They claim pregnancy is a hardship that should be easily wiped away for the sake of comforting the adults who created a child. There is no concern for the life created or the pain an unborn child feels while literally being ripped apart through abortion. The comfort of adults takes all priority.
This same concept is applicable to the left’s views on masking children. Teachers’ unions continue to advocate that children stay masked in schools to protect vaccinated adults who “feel unsafe.” The costs to children be damned.
“How do we make sure that an entire community in a school feels safe and welcome?” American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten asked MSNBC.
Pay no attention to the facts about the severity of the disease for children and for vaccinated adults. Both are low. For children, in particular, the risk of severe disease or death from the virus sits near a zero percent chance. Not to mention, “feeling safe” is an impossible standard and very different than being safe while calculating and accepting risk. Further, evidence continues to pile up that shows masking children is far more detrimental to their development and learning than Wuhan coronavirus itself.
“A new study from Canada found that children have a harder time recognizing faces of those wearing COVID-19 masks than adults, raising fears about their ability to socialize and make friends,” the New York Post reports. “The masks, which have become an essential part of the daily lives of millions of students in America for nearly two years, change the typical way children’s brains recognize faces, the York University study found.”
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Democrats have always put kids last and adults first. Anybody familiar with their thinking on the rights of children inside the womb, which are trampled by the convenient comforts of adults, shouldn’t be surprised.
