In an interview this week, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards touted the group’s outreach to teens via text chat services, promotional merchandise sold on Etsy.com, and training teens to be public speakers and pro-choice advocates. In one of the most sickeningly ironic word choices ever, she claimed one pregnant teen praised the nation’s biggest abortion chain as a “lifesaver.” No, it’s more like the opposite of that.
As a counter-view, one critic said that what Richards calls an “investment in people” (she means spending money to promote PP to teens, not buying and selling human body parts) is actually promoting a promiscuous lifestyle to teens rather than discouraging them from having sex, because the abortion mills have quotas to meet and those young pregnant women are just numbers to them.
I’m sorry if that sounds chillingly cynical, or maybe even offensive to you. But I didn’t say that. Those are the words of Ramona Trevino, who spent three years as the manager of a Planned Parenthood abortion referral clinic in Texas before her conscience forced her to quit.
