Abortion gift certificates?
Overheard on the local news TV station just now: “People do not support the idea of gift certificates for abortion. We’ll have more after the break.”
The real story is not as strange as the news made it out to sound, quite unsurprisingly. By the way, I despise it when news programs do that… in a desperate attempt to retain viewers, they make an exaggerated or shock-value statement in order to get people to stick around and watch the advertisements so they don’t miss ‘the rest of the story’ when the news returns.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana is offering gift certificates that can be used toward any of their health care services, including abortions. I think the idea of GC’s for health services is maybe a little weird, but we are living in a world where lots of people don’t have health insurance, so… OK. Perhaps a gift card that could be redeemed for a yearly checkup or pap smear or birth control would be appreciated. But how do you give such a gift? “Happy Holidays! Here’s a gift certificate for an upcoming abortion or other health service of your choice!” Just plain odd.
