Planned Parenthood fundraisers on Mother’s Day in bad taste

.- Planned Parenthood organized fundraisers over Mother’s Day weekend in South Dakota — a move that has citizens reeling at the callousness of the organization.

"The fact that abortion is being glamorized on Mother's Day should raise eyebrows," said Barb Frick, a member of South Dakota’s chapter of Silent No More, a coalition of women who regret their abortions and assist post-abortive women.

"Why would Planned Parenthood connect the killing of unborn children with the celebration of motherhood, Mother's Day?” asked Frick. “Clearly, these outside groups are calloused and can't understand that South Dakotans believe motherhood is something to be valued and honored. We don't want Planned Parenthood’s harmful practices being pushed on our women and children."

Karen Nelson, South Dakota state coordinator for Silent No More, said she believes Mother’s Day is a very painful time for post-abortive women.

"As a woman who has had an abortion, I know the agony [post-abortive] women are feeling this weekend," she said.

"This is the day when we remember that if we had not been coerced into abortions, we would be enjoying the company of a child. No amount of feel-good fundraisers will remove our pain," she stated.
