Planned Parenthood whistleblower

According to the California Catholic Daily:
A former executive of Planned Parenthood-Los Angeles has filed a federal
whistleblower’s lawsuit against all nine Planned Parenthood affiliates in
California. The suit alleges the affiliates knowingly engaged in a criminal plot
to fleece state and federal taxpayers out of more than $180 million over the
course of at least six years.

The article goes on to say:
Employees of Planned Parenthood-Los Angeles misused a corporate American
Express card. “Instead of using the card for legitimate non-profit purposes,
employees were using donor money and other PPLA money for Victoria’s Secret and
private video purchases. Other instances of credit card abuse occurred as well.”

Perhaps if donors stopped donating and taxpayers demanded a stop to government funding, we could finally get rid of the scourge of Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood could be a huge asset to the Christian community. If we would volunteer there and donate to causes that provide parenting/birth classes, and such things as cribs, high chairs, strollers, etc. we might be able to assure young single mothers that abortion is not the only way out.

If young single mothers were aided by their government to raise their children (health care, etc.) maybe they wouldn't feel trapped.

Unfortunately, the "moral majority" has fought these and programs like them instead of helping and trying to inject them with the light and hope of the Lord.

Christians are JUST as much to blame for abortion in this country as non-Christians and it makes me sick that they pilfer the blame onto the "Left" like they do with so many other things.

Ok, rant over:)

l'oiseau,

For those of us who believe that unborn babies are human, and that the taking of innocent human life is an atrocity, I'm not sure how any of us could work at a place that regularly commits these atrocities.

You wrote about providing parenting/birth classes, cribs, high chairs, strollers, etc. and then wrote, "the 'moral majority' has fought these programs."

I'm not sure what you mean. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of Christian pregnancy centers all over America that do exactly what you describe--providing education, cribs, diabers, high chairs, clothes, etc. to expectant mothers (they just don't kill the babies like Planned Parenthood!)

My wife and I have contributed heavily to a couple of these Christian pregnancy centers ror years.

I guess I just think that if we actually worked within the place where they were committing the abortions, then we could help women who are already there, planning on getting an abortion. Jesus never shied away from places that were less than pristine sin-wise, so why do we? We could help people there...that's all I was saying. We could help the mothers AND the babies, but we are sort of blinded by hatred for the mothers and the doctors, so we don't.
