Planned Parenthood use Haiti earthquake to raise funds

The cynical use of the appalling Haitian disaster by Planned Parenthood to raise funds for the provision of abortion and birth control must be condemned by all right thinking people. Haiti urgently needs all kinds of medical care and even basic necessities such as food and water not condoms. see lifesite

Douglas R. Scott, president Life Decisions International (LDI), a Planned Parenthood watchdog organization also issued a statement on Wednesday Jan 20th condemning the Planned Parenthood action and pointing out that it is true to form, in that they (PP) have used various different crises to raise funds for their deadly agenda.

Planned Parenthood according to Scott will use any excuse to ask for money, even when doing so is ridiculous," … "What the people of Haiti need is food, water, clothing and shelter. They do not need anything Planned Parenthood has to offer."

"Planned Parenthood's deadly network wants to provide 'sexual and reproductive health to people affected by the disaster.' While there are many organizations offering essential healthcare to the people of Haiti, Planned Parenthood wants to be sure that this includes birth control and abortion," Scott said.

Scott also said that said he is reminded of Planned Parenthood's response to other disastrous circumstances. "This kind of self-serving opportunism is common for Planned Parenthood," he said, pointing to several examples:

* After the fall of Romania's brutal dictator in 1989, Planned Parenthood donated $22,000 to buy abortion equipment and arranged for an airlift of 40,000 condoms.

* Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Planned Parenthood offered a week of free "reproductive health care" (taxpayers picked up the tab).
