Planned Parenthood announces "Free EC Day"

It’s the holiday season and retailers all across the country are scurrying to attract shoppers into their stores. The super sales on “Black Friday” have given way to price cuts and free giveaways as the giant chains go after every customer they can get.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain and one of the biggest drug chains in the country, is no exception. The organization’s affiliates are beginning to announce participation in a “Free EC Day” on December 6.

On that day, women will be able to go to many of Planned Parenthood’s clinics across the country and be provided with a free EC kit (one kit per customer).

CALL TO ACTION: We encourage every fighter of Planned Parenthood to be outside every one of its clinics on Wednesday, December 6 and hand out accurate information on emergency contraception. You can order copies of our full color brochure online or you can download a black and white copy free and take it to your local copy shop to get copies for distribution.

We must not let Planned Parenthood deceive people that day. We must tell them the truth.

Planned Parenthood targets Latino community

The Brownsville Herald reported on November 28 about a talk in Weslaco, Texas by Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards. During the talk, Richards said one of her major goals was to push Planned Parenthood services on the Latino community.

She specifically mentioned wanting PP-style sex education programs for Latino teens, as well as getting more government money to push its total agenda on the Latino community. Richards cited abstinence-only education as something the Latino community is “suffering” from.

Although Richards does her best to paint Planned Parenthood as a benevolent organization wanting only the best for Latino women, those who have been fighting Planned Parenthood for any length of time recognize the similarity between this current push and the programs PP had for blacks in the 1930s.

Many in the black community correctly see Planned Parenthood as the primary reason for the declining black population (see, for example, Now, Planned Parenthood is taking aim at another minority group.

American Life League has produced a number of Spanish language anti-Planned Parenthood brochures, as well as other pro-life brochures, signs and T-shirts. You can find a full list of what is available

Richards has made it clear that Planned Parenthood is targeting the Latino community. We encourage you to obtain the Spanish language material and distribute it widely.
