On last night’s ABC World News, Charlie Gibson spotlighted the “unusual… controvers[ial]” story of IN Planned Parenthood offering Christmas gift certificates for all services, including abortion.
IN PP, yes, where employees help sexual predators get away with raping minor girls, as Lila Rose exposed only yesterday. Since these gift certificates can be used for all services, rape felony cover-up must also be included.
Read my previous post on this here.

The story reported:

“It’s about basic health care. It’s about annual exams, it’s about pap smears, it’s about birth control,” said [IN PP CEO Betty] Cockrum. “I would be amazed if a dime of it goes toward an abortion.”

Why? What’s wrong with using a Christmas gift certificate for abortion?
The story concluded…

Planned Parenthood chapters in IL, NY, AK and MI are considering similar gift certificate programs for the holidays.
But if the organization expands this program, the more it is likely to inflame the never-ending fight over abortion during what is intended to be a peaceful holiday season.

In general, I thought the ABC story tilted against PP.
The Chicago Tribune on the other hand spun the story PP’s way with this lead yesterday:

What do you get the person who has everything – except adequate health insurance? If you live in IN, consider this offering from the state’s PP affiliate: gift certificates….

The Associated Press was even more flagrant, not mentioning until the 11th paragraph in its story (4th from the bottom) that the gift certificates can be used for abortion. Here’s a sample of the uberspin:

The network of 35 clinics across the state announced it is offering holiday vouchers for basic health care services “or the recipient’s choice of birth control method.”
The organization decided to offer the vouchers because so many people are uninsured or are putting off health care because of prohibitive costs….

Most see this for what it is, however, blasphemous and disgusting, even if they’re not sure why. Wrote TooXquisite on HipHop.com:

… [T]he fact that the gift certificates can be used to get an abortion just doesn’t sit right, I guess it’s that it seems kinda impersonal and too damn personal at the same time…
