For reasons unbeknownst to me, the other day I received at our home address my official Planned Parenthood Membership Card, along with a letter [PDF] from Cecile Richards saying she can’t thank me enough for what I have done for Planned Parenthood this past year.
What I have done is picket their high-dollar fundraising events, protested their conferring of various leadership awards on turncoat politicians, and exposed a pattern of abhorrent practices at their facilities nationwide. But I’m glad they appreciate these contributions enough to confer membership on me.
The letter from Cecile Richards says nothing is going to stop them from making sure women have access to “safe, legal abortion,” but that my support is absolutely critical in 2014 to help them lead the fight.
She admits they’re having trouble: “Five years ago, very few people thought legal access to abortion was really at risk.” Then she goes on to fret about waiting periods, counseling and ultrasound requirements, admitting privileges, and “unnecessary” building code laws for abortion clinics.
Good. It’s nice to know what bothers the nation’s largest abortion chain, so as Member number 1840624, I’ll do everything in my power to concentrate on doing those things every chance I get.
