Planned Parenthood's Christmas Propaganda

Have a tough time when you get together with your relatives at Christmas?  Are they always advocating for silly things like "life".  Planned Parenthood has some advice:
“The holidays are upon us! Going home or getting together with relatives for the holidays is always a stressful time, but if your family members are the type who regularly protest outside the local Planned Parenthood, you know that this holiday is going to be a doozy,” the New York City affiliate of Planned Parenthood explains on its website. “Luckily, we have some tips for surviving those awkward conversations”

The abortion provider offers supporters “8 Easy Steps for Discussing Reproductive Health and Justice at the Holiday Table.” The online cheat-sheet includes such advice as “Avoid bumper speak talk” to steer away from anger-inducing slogans, and “Remember the big picture” to keep the conversation on common goals such as the need for health care. It also advises readers to “Know your facts, but keep the conversation more global.”

“It’s good to clarify misinformation—for example, the misconception that emergency contraception ends a pregnancy—but staying there can cause a fight. Instead, try to clarify, and then transition back to the underlying value of why you believe what you do,” the tip sheet explains.
I'm guessing Planned Parenthood has gift cards you can buy for that special loved one you'd like to abort.

“Luckily, we have some tips for surviving those awkward conversations.” Only half of the people who cross the threshold of their clinic doorways end up surviving -but they're worried about surviving an “awkward conversation.”

I'm surprised that, in the name of ‘Reproductive Health and Justice’, they didn't suggest their trolls alter the host family's Nativity scene so it has an empty manger. Wouldn't want any reminders of ‘that conscience thing’.

Actually emergency contraception does not end an established pregnancy. That's where abortion rights advocates oversold their product. In fact if women use Plan B too often in one cycle, they increase the likelihood of getting pregnant. I know women who were on the pill, taking it correctly, and still got pregnant. There's a huge chasm of difference between Plan B and RU 486; the latter DOES cause an abortion.

Still, not a fan of Planned Parenthood for soooooo many reasons, not the least of which you outlined.
