.- The International Planned Parenthood Federation has sent out thousands of letters asking for donations to rebuild its clinics in Haiti, which were destroyed by the January 12 earthquake.

The Spanish civil rights website, Hazteoir.org reported that the pro-abortion organization is claiming that it needs the funds for its affiliate, Profamil, to avert a “healthcare emergency” in the country.

In a letter signed by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Regional Director Carmen Barroso, the organization asks for “emergency donations” in order to “provide services for saving lives.”

“Each minute counts! Your tax-deductible donation will directly support the restoration of basic medical services” at Planned Parenthood clinics in Port-au-Prince, Jacmel and Port-au-Paix, the letter reads. “This is your opportunity to help our neighbors in Haiti during this time of crisis.”

The letter claims that Planned Parenthood’s affiliate in Haiti has “has worked to improve sexual and reproductive healthcare in Haiti, often providing the only healthcare available in some areas.”

“Now, in this urgent life-or-death situation, the time to act is now. Please be generous!” the letter states.
