(CNSNews.com) – While Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is promoting “safe + legal abortion” as “what women need” in a Valentine’s Day social-media video, the Planned Parenthood Maryland affiliate is using social media to promote a condom in a wedding ring box – “Will you be my birth control?”
Planned Parenthood Maryland has also posted on its Facebook page a heart image made of condoms that says, “The best Valentine’s Day gifts come wrapped.”
The question, “Will you be my Valentine?” is a traditional way of expressing affection for another person, and probably one that many people have experienced on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.
The Planned Parenthood Maryland picture, as first reported by LifeNews.com, shows an open ring box with a red, partially erect condom in place of the ring with the question, “Will you be my birth control?” At the bottom of the image it says, “Happy Valentines from Planned Parenthood.”
The condom heart image is posted below.
According to its latest annual report, for the year ending Sept. 30, 2012, Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions. The organization also received $540.6 million in taxpayer-funded government health grants.
"While it's sickening to promote the killing of pre-born children on a day set aside to celebrate love, it shouldn't surprise us that on Valentine's Day, Planned Parenthood hearts abortion,” Lila Rose, president of Live Action, told CNSNews.com. “Having infamously earned the title of America's largest abortion corporation, killing over 327,000 children a year, they will stoop to any low to push a vicious ideology and make a buck.”
"Abortion is the antithesis of love - rejecting children when they are the most defenseless, and often the result of a woman feeling alone and abandoned,” said Rose. “Let's recommit ourselves this Valentine's to band together as a society and make this world a more loving place, especially for the smallest among us."
