Everyday Wines Whines To Students for Life at U of Michigan

The Students for Life group at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is holding a silent auction dinner fundraiser next month to specifically aide in their mission of helping students in particular who are “facing an unplanned pregnancy by providing fiscal, material, and emotional support.”

Really, even if you are not pro-life, helping students facing unplanned pregnancies is a no-brainer.

Except for a business called Everyday Wines in Ann Arbor.

When SFL of UM reached out to them with a letter explaining what their goals are and asking the business to consider donation of a gift card or merchandise, Everyday Wines just didn’t politely decline. They had to add an extra touch of the tolerance that the pro-abortion side is known for.

This is what Everyday Wines wrote back to Sarah, a member of the UM SFL group who was reaching out to local businesses:

everyday wines

“I was surprised when I got the email because of the tone of it. They were condescending. They could have just declined the request but they didn’t,” said Sarah. “It was strange that they mentioned the refugees because it has nothing to do with our mission.”

Valid points.

Rachel Crawford, president of Students for Life at the University of Michigan nailed it when she said that, “This response gives direct evidence to the influence Planned Parenthood has on the abortion issue. They are the first organization that comes to mind for supporters of legal abortion. Those who oppose the work of Students for Life on college campuses are direct allies of Planned Parenthood because they are the largest and loudest abortion advocates.”

She’s absolutely right.

Everyday Wines is just one more pawn in Planned Parenthood’s operation of pushing abortion over all else. At least Students for Life at UM is attempting to help women. Planned Parenthood betrays women. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion vendor, committing one in every three abortions, and is backed into a corner right now as they are finally facing defunding of taxpayer money, which makes up over 43% of their budget, totaling around $553 million a year.

The owner of Everyday Wines, Mary Campbell, says on her website that she came to appreciate wine on her first trip to Europe and understood it as “an everyday pleasure—inexpensive, unintimidating, and woven into the fabric of everyday life. That’s the experience she hopes to recreate in her shop.” Wine can be unintimidating but so can the attitude of the store owner who has no problems being mean to a student pro-life group who wants to merely help their peers in stressful pregnancies.

“Students for Life at the University of Michigan is a shining example of the pro-life generation. This all-volunteer group works tirelessly to make a positive difference on their campus and in their community, supporting women in crisis pregnancies and educating peers about the predatory abortion industry,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America. “Everyday Wines could have at the least politely declined with an ounce of civility – instead they had to attack SFL at UM in a condescending tone. It’s one more indication that this is the face of the pro-abortion movement now and it’s not one of love and compassion but one of intolerance and hatred.”

Planned Parenthood’s VOX Bullies Pregnant on Campus Group at W&M

Students for Life of America created the Pregnant on Campus (PonC) Initiative almost six years ago, and it’s been wildly successful. This Initiative gives students tangible ways to put their pro-life beliefs into action. PonC groups lobby their universities to become more pregnant and parenting friendly by introducing diaper decks into bathrooms, opening up lactation rooms on campus, having childcare available at the school, and educating students on what options there are locally (including important Title IX non-discrimination clauses at the school) to help them to parent their child or place for adoption and continue her education.

SFLA and PonC believe no student should be forced to choose between her child and her education. Our Pregnant on Campus Initiative promotes are real solutions and compassionate support for students facing unplanned pregnancies and for parents continuing their education. In fact, www.PregnantonCampus.org is the only website that has compiled both national and local resources for students at hundreds of colleges and universities around the country for anyone to access. William and Mary’s page even includes such items as where to ask for help regarding pregnancy policies and resources and even where to find lactation rooms on campus! (See their campus page here: www.PregnantOnCampus.org/WM )

These are worthy goals – and even students on campus who are pro-choice are encouraged by our Pregnant on Campus program. Some have even partnered with PonC groups for certain projects. Currently, SFLA serves over 180 PonC college groups nationally, including one at the College of William and Mary (W&M) in Virginia, which is an awesome group!

The W&M PonC group put up flyers around campus advertising the group, inviting people to their meetings and offering free resources for pregnant or parenting students.

Well, the Planned Parenthood affiliated group at W&M, VOX, was having none of this. They were so incensed by W&M PonC Initiative’s offer to help pregnant and parenting students that they posted a long rant on their own Facebook page, along with pictures of the W&M PonC flyers, to call attention to the “shaming language” and “misinformation” that the PonC group supposedly promotes. They attempted to claim that they are the only ones who could possibly offer unbiased information to pregnant women, even pointing their readers to their local Planned Parenthood (of course) and the National Network of Abortion Funds.

Without going into all the details that one can easily find with a Google search of Planned Parenthood, here are the highlights of unsavory business practices in this last six months of this supposedly trusted women’s healthcare provider:

  • They and their business partners have been referred for over a dozen criminal actions by committees in both the US House and Senate for illegally buying and selling the body parts of babies they aborted and handing over sensitive patient information.
  • Planned Parenthood boasts that they have a wide range of services, including prenatal care. However, a recent investigation found that isn’t the case at all. In 97 Planned Parenthood’s called about the prenatal care they offered, 92 said they couldn’t even refer the woman out for such care, much less provide it.
  • In interviews with former Planned Parenthood employees, abortion quotas are a thing – and employees get rewarded with things like pizza parties for meeting or exceeding those quotas. Planned Parenthood has an agenda and women are the victims, not the ones empowered.

The W&M PonC group saw the post and offered to talk to VOX and have a constructive dialogue. VOX would hear none of it:

vox wamm

This W&M Pregnant on Campus group is a great resource on campus, and yet they are being bullied for merely offering women a better option than abortion. The VOX group won’t even talk to them because they don’t agree with their beliefs of “equal access and justice” (AKA abortion-on-demand for any reason at any point in the pregnancy).

Here’s what you can do:

Go to the W&M Pregnant on Campus Facebook page, and send them a note of support. A campus is a small place, and word travels fast and is easily decimated. So this group needs support! Can you help?

SCOTUS Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch is Awesome

President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch tonight to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch was on the list that Trump released during his campaign of possible nominees to replace Justice Scalia.

We at Students for Life are very happy with this pick! Judge Gorsuch is very much like Justice Scalia was – a strict Constitutionalist (which means he makes his decisions based on the actual Constitution and not on ideology) and a defender of religious freedom. He sided with both Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor as their cases made their way through the circuit courts. Gorsuch

He is exceptionally well-qualified, a Harvard Law graduate, and a hard-worker and man of integrity. He was confirmed to his current seat on the 10th Circuit of Appeals unanimously by the US Senate in 2006. He’s married and has two teenage daughters. Learn more about him at http://www.confirmgorsuch.com/.

SFLA’s president Kristan Hawkins said this about Judge Gorsuch’s nomination:

“We are thrilled with Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the US Supreme Court by President Trump, who is continuing to fulfill campaign promises at a breakneck speed. A strict Constitutionalist and firm supporter of religious freedom and liberties dictated by the Founding Fathers, Judge Gorsuch is an excellent replacement for the late Justice Scalia, and one who has the potential to leave a powerful legacy.

“The Supreme Court was of great concern to voters this past November and the Senate should take swift action to confirm Judge Gorsuch to the high Court to ensure a full slate of Justices. The Senate unanimously confirmed Judge Gorsuch to the 10th US Circuit of Appeals and they should follow their previous example. We aren’t tired of winning yet.”

Plus, you know it’s a good pick when the abortion lobby is already angry:

Three Days, One Lawsuit, One New Students for Life Club

Last week, Students for Life of America and our attorneys at Alliance Defending Freedom helped Norvilia Etienne, a student at Queens College in New York, file a federal lawsuit against her school for refusing to allow her to start a Students for Life club on campus. And then two days later, the school relented and recognized the Students for Life club. #winning

Last fall, Queens College Students for Life and other campus groups applied for “registered” status, seeking to join more than 100 student organizations—including pro-abortion clubs—which are allowed to reserve meeting space, invite speakers, and receive funding from mandatory student activity fees. Officials delayed and then rejected Students for Life’s application without explanation but approved the applications of at least two other groups immediately.

The college gave unlimited power to the Campus Affairs Committee to decide whether a group should be granted official recognition and whether it may receive funding. The lawsuit, Queens College Students for Life v. Members of the City University of New York Board of Trustees, points out that this sweeping authority allows them to deny recognition and funding for any reason, including unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination. ADF attorneys explain that public universities cannot refuse to approve a student group without justification and must ensure recognition and student activity funding are approved in a viewpoint-neutral manner.

Because of Queens College’s discriminatory practices, Students for Life members must continue to fund, through the college’s mandatory student activity fees, groups that support abortion but cannot access funds from those fees, which exceed $1,200 per student over eight semesters, for themselves.32201213540_ffc8aea3af_z

“Too frequently we see that public colleges and universities feel they can deny recognition or funding to a student group just because officials don’t agree with the viewpoint of those students,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “Queens College was playing favorites while stifling free speech, a typical response of abortion advocates who prefer to silence opposition rather than have a free exchange of ideas. Thanks to the courage of Norvilia and the help of our attorneys, a quick resolution was found and now we can move forward to help Norvilia and Queens College SFL create a culture of life on campus.”

We are thrilled that Queens College recognized that they were treating Norvilia and her Students for Life group as second-class citizens for the sole reason they are pro-life. Parts of the lawsuit will continue for other reasons but the school has recognized the SFL club and Norvilia can move forward with events and campus activism.

Norvilia actually became pro-life because of the extraordinary example of her mother:

“My passion for the pro-life movement stems from my life’s story. When I was 16, I found out that my mother contemplated aborting a fetus, and that fetus was me. Granted my then-17-year-old mother already had an 11-month-old son with an absentee father. After he found out the news, my father also announced that he would not be caring for me, so she had legitimate reasons to worry. But by the grace of God and through the advice of my staunchly Catholic grandmother, she choose to have me.

“Yes, we had a difficult upbringing and didn’t always have the shiniest toys but I’m glad I have my life. I’m glad I was given the chance to grow up and fend for myself as I do now as a college student. My mother is the strongest woman I know!”

We are so proud of Norvilia and her pro-life convictions and we can’t wait to help her make a positive difference for life on her campus!

My conversation with abortion advocates at the March for Life

By Sade Patterson, SFLA Correspondent

There are always those unseen and unheard stories from big events that never make the news but are interesting and compelling. Everyone who attends enormous events will have one to tell.

I attended the annual March for Life this past Friday and I indeed have my own story, one that even surprised me.

The crowd was enormous, a strong wave that flooded Constitution Ave., and the voices of Millennials seemed to be loud enough to be heard in every corner of the city. The energy was electric and contagious with every step towards the Supreme Court. Slowly, thousands of Millennials filled the space in front of the Supreme Court steps, overflowing over the sidewalk and touching the grass of the Capitol. Protesters made a thin line on the curb that divided pro-lifers from each other, standing side-by-side ready to defend abortion rights.

After photographing most of the march and encounters with protesters, I found myself behind the opposition. My co-worker was speaking to four college-aged women who were each holding a bright pink sign that read, “Keep Abortion Safe and Legal.” I sade MFLdecided to join the conversation, which ironically had nothing to do with abortion.

After getting to know the women a bit, I asked the simple question, “What’s your perspective on abortion?”

They explained that they supported abortion, especially if it was healthier for the mother. This gave me a great opportunity to discuss the risks of abortion, to which they were open to hearing. I referenced my local late-term abortion clinic’s consent form in Albuquerque, NM, and how it describes an abortion after 18 weeks to be more dangerous than actually caring the baby to term.

I got an apathetic reaction, which I expected, since understanding the risks of an abortion is not usually tangible.

At this point, I asked if I could explain the perspective of the pro-life movement. I chose to ask this because just feet away there was a preacher with a bullhorn yelling at and condemning pro-choice activists, and I didn’t want these women to walk away not knowing who the pro-life movement really is.

“We are not here to make decisions for women, but rather hoping to inform women of choices other than abortion so they can make an informed decision.”

This interested them so I went on.

“I work at a pregnancy resource center where we offer free resources to pregnant women in need to become self-sufficient and to feel supported enough to choose adoption or become parents while continuing their education or career.”

At that point, the woman who was most engaged in the conversation had a completely different expression on her face. At first she was curious and guarded, but she had now opened up and had a sense of interest in her eyes. She was moved, and she told me how amazing that was to hear.

I shared with her and her friends that I was once in the shoes of a woman who faced the decision of abortion when I found myself pregnant in my sophomore year of college.

If it hadn’t been for Students for Life of America’s Pregnant on Campus Initiative I can’t say with confidence what choice I would have made.

“I share this with you because I want you to know that the pro-life movement has the mission to love both the woman and her baby. Many of us know the struggles of an unplanned pregnancy, and we want women to feel empowered enough to not have to choose between their goals and their child.”

In that moment of the conversation the chanting and yelling in the background had faded, and we were so deeply engaged in this conversation. I noticed a reporter and camerawoman from ABC News had been filing our conversation.

“I love how genuine and sincere your approach is” she told me with excitement in her eyes and a growing smile on her face. I was thankful that the reporter had captured a positive encounter between a pro-life and a pro-choice advocate, and hoped that it would encourage others to find common ground I their conversations and always respect each other.

I was very thankful to have found common ground with these young women, which was that all women deserve to be informed of their decisions and deserve more than abortion.

However, since these women are now aware of the risks of abortion and the alternative options that are readily available, they cannot logically continue to be “pro-woman” and defend abortion. Even though we found common ground in that we all love women, being pro-woman begins in the womb and continues her entire life.

When we recognize that women deserve protection and equality in all stages of life we will be a culture that truly empowers and supports women.

An invitation to join the movement that truly empowers women

By Tina Whittington, Executive Vice President, Students for Life of America.

Never have I felt more accepted and supported as a woman than I have by the pro-life movement.  After experiencing the Women’s March one weekend and the attending the March for Life the next, I felt that I had to speak up.

I was raised in Portland, Oregon which should tell you a lot about the social political climate I was raised in.  I was also raised by a single mother for most of my childhood before she married my awesome step-dad.  I didn’t even know that there was a pro-life movement but after my youth pastor spoke about the value of life at our high school youth group meeting in my Presbyterian church, I knew that I was pro-life.

I still didn’t know what to do with my newfound position but I knew that life from the moment of conception until natural death was valuable and that I was against the intentional ending of all humans.

When I was in college, I started having cysts on my ovaries that would burst and end me up in the hospital.  Doctors suggested I start taking hormonal birth control pills to stop the cysts from forming and rupturing.  Of course, I listened and went on the Pill.  The year I was on the Pill, I gained 20 pounds (which is a lot for someone who is just over five feet tall), and started experiencing some deep depression.IMG_9477

I spoke with some of my married friends in the same boat and found out they were experiencing similar symptoms had been prescribed anti-depressants or were taking St. John’s Wort to combat the depression they were feeling from the drug.

In the meantime, I joined a gym to try to combat the weight issue.

In my early 20’s, I met Rock for Life and they were speaking out for the preborn from the stage at concerts, festivals, and even recruiting bands to take up the pro-life cause and speak out.  It was from this organization that I learned about the harm the birth control pill can have on a woman’s body and that it can act as an abortifacient, ending the life of a child right after conception.

Through Rock for Life I was pointed to another great organization – Northwest Family Services – where I learned about natural fertility methods and worked with Nurse Rose to naturally treat my ovarian cysts and infrequent ovulation.

It was within the pro-life movement, that for the first time, I was exposed to how my body worked and to learn to embrace the way my fertility was uniquely designed.  I felt empowered as a woman and supported to discover just how awesome it is to be formed in such a way as to conceive, carry, and then nurse a baby.  And understand how to work with my body to either delay pregnancy or facilitate pregnancy.  This was a special gift for me and my marriage.  This is something I never would have discovered without the pro-life movement.

After I got married and became a mother, I spent nine-and-a-half years as a stay-at-home mom, or what I like to call a Mommy CEO.  During that time I found ways to continue to share my own empowerment with other women.

We welcomed a teen mother and her baby to live with our family and helped her through the process of getting state support, finding a job, creating budgets, and finding ways to commute to and from her job.  I also mentored single moms who were navigating difficult life situations.  I was also afforded the opportunity to join a local Rachel’s Vineyard team who provided healing retreat weekends for women and 32517222166_e65020f81c_zmen who were struggling after their abortion experience.

It was in the pro-life movement that I was able to navigate this time in my life and get the support I needed to balance taking care of four children, finding childcare to be able to do some of this work, and get the mentoring I needed to figure out how to make this all work.  I felt 100% supported in my decision to give up my career and stay at home with my kids and I also felt encouraged to find ways to continue to empower other women.

Then something terrible happened: my husband, who was the financial supporter of our family, lost his job.  If you have never experienced something like this, let me tell you it is not fun. I experienced the first panic attack I have ever had about a week a fter, when I started thinking about the daunting task of paying bills, buying food, and taking care of our kids with no salary.

In order to work through this time, I started applying for jobs, all kinds of jobs, and if you have ever been a mother who has been out of the workforce you know how hard it is to find a job when you have a nine-year blip in your resume.

Again, it was within the pro-life movement that I was accepted.  It was at Students for
32558270285_8778678580_zLife that I found someone who was willing to take a risk on a woman with a nine-year blip on her resume, four children that I may have to take time off to care for on occasion, and an acceptance that my passion for life could tie us altogether as a team even when I was the oldest person they had ever hired and in a significantly different season of life than they were.

To those at the Women’s March who were told to reject their natural and healthy fertility through birth control pills…

To those who were told to be a feminist you have to reject your amazing ability to conceive and carry a child to term through abortion-on-demand…

To those where were told that women must fit a very specific political mold in order to be accepted…

I am inviting you to a different movement!

Next year, please come to the March for Life and experience what it means to embrace your body for what it was designed for and instead reject hormones and chemicals that can actively harm your body.  Meet women who are walking through different seasons of life and have various social and political beliefs but have stood firm for supporting other women with real, tangible help and resources, and reject the idea that we must fit a specific mold to be accepted by each other.

10 Things Pro-Life Women Saw At The Women’s March

By Reagan Barklage, Midwest Regional Director

As four of us ladies from SFLA spent today unwinding from the Women’s March yesterday, we decided to document 10 of the top things we were told. Gotta love “feminism”

WARNING: OFFENSIVE CONTENT BELOW. READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION

—————————————————————————————————————

1.“We should start burying our menstrual blood.”
please stop.

2.“MY BODY MY CHOICE!” -from a man
Dude, you’re a dude.

3.“Just wait until you have an unplanned pregnancy, then you will have an abortion. I have seen it happen a million times.”
Make that 57 million times :<

4.“You aren’t welcome here.” -from a man
that’s awkward

5.“I hope you get raped and have to have an abortion”
…………

6.“Have you adopted a kid with AIDS?”
As if you can’t speak out against the injustice of abortion if you haven’t adopted a kid with HIV/AIDS

7.“If you found out the baby was gay you would abort it? Muslim?”
No. We actually are consistently pro-life.

8.“7 out of 10 of you will have an abortion”
I doubt that.

9.“YOU BETRAY WOMEN”
We are women.

10.“BIRTH CONTROL FOR MEN!”
Men consistently take birth control…pshhh right.

What exactly is SFLA doing at the Women’s March on Saturday?

By Michele Hendrickson, Eastern Regional Director

In the last ten minutes alone, I’ve read “Picnic with Piggy” to my daughter for the millionth time, convinced my 4-year-old that butter is not a food group, and registered five more students for the Students for Life National Conference! Welcome to the life of a pro-life activist and mother.

Since I’m on such a productive roll, I thought I would pause and take a moment to answer a lot of questions I’ve been receiving this week about our participation in the Women’s March on Washington this weekend.womens march scotus sign

Questions from students like….

“I voted for Trump, I’m pro-life, but I’m not sure if I should participate in this March.  Is this for me?”

“I didn’t vote for Trump, but I’m also anti-abortion.  How can I help?”

“I originally planned on joining the Women’s March, but now that they’re officially pro-abortion, I’m not sure what to do.”

And finally, the big one…

“This march seems to have a clear pro-abortion message; do we even belong here?”

The short answer is, YES, pro-life women 100% belong at the Women’s March.  Here’s why…

  1. Planned Parenthood and the Abortion Industry do not own Women’s Rights. Call it feminism, call it commonsense, call it whatever you want.  The idea that women are equal human beings is not new, it’s not owned by one group, and abortion advocates are the least consistent with this principle.  Preborn female humans are destroyed in the womb, every day, through legal abortion.  Born women who walk into Planned Parenthood are being sold a lie that abortion can somehow solve all their problems.Our presence at the Women’s March is critical to show the Pro-Life Pro-Woman position.
  2. This is not about Trump. That’s really all I have to say about that.  We have students joining us from all backgrounds and political affiliations.We’ll be at the Women’s March to show that no matter who you voted for, we should all be united for Women and in opposition to the biggest violence against women: abortion.
  3. We belong anywhere abortion is being glorified. Some are questioning their type of participation because of the March’s “Unity Principles”.  Do we join?  Do we protest?  I think defining our involvement as either one would be a mischaracterization of our efforts.  We will not be protesting women’s rights – we are women!  But at this point, simply joining has become more complicated.In case you haven’t been caught up, here are the “Unity Principles” of the Women’s March:
  • Ending Violence – We 100% agree! In fact, we would argue we are far more consistent with our beliefs of nonviolence than any abortion supporter.  Abortion destroys innocent members of our human society.
  • LGBTQIA Rights – Our pro-life student leaders identify as Gay, Straight, You-Name-It, because we know that ALL people, no matter how they identify, can understand the importance of protecting those who are the most marginalized among us: the preborn.
  • Worker’s Rights – Obviously! In fact, we’ll up the ante and add PAID Maternity and Paternity leave so that our society can better support working families.
  • Civil Rights – Another obvious YES! We hope the Women’s March itself will uphold their own unity principle here, protecting “freedom of speech”.
  • Disability Rights – It is a great tragedy that abortion has reduced the population of Down Syndrome persons in the United States by an estimated thirty percent. Persons with disabilities are valuable, no matter what age.
  • Immigrant Rights – I am a third-generation Italian-American woman. My heritage is important to me and I’m thankful for the opportunities this country has provided for my family.  Another obvious no-brainer here.
  • Environmental Justice – Yes! I am the girl at the party who brings an extra grocery bag just in case they don’t recycle.  Who wouldn’t want a clean environment?
  • Reproductive Rights – As defined by the Women’s March is, “access to safe, legal abortion” – DEAL. BREAKER.  The Women’s March is way off in their description here.  I should have the freedom to use my body to reproduce as I see fit.  Once I’ve used that right to create another person, that new human should be treated equally. Having access to healthcare that helps me take care of my body is important to me, and I deserved this from the very moment my body came into being – conception.  Before I was born, I was a person who deserved healthcare, not a price tag on my death sentence in the name of Reproductive Rights.If you’re still not sure how to feel about this, let me put it to you this way…Would we happily and fully join a march that had any other act of violence in its Unity Principles?

Quick exercise: replace abortion with something else.
“access to safe, legal, human trafficking,”
access to safe, legal, dismemberment of newborns,”
“access to safe, legal, spousal abuse,

Those things are crazy!  I would never risk any possible association with those violent principles, no matter how much I fully support the others.

So I want to make it clear what Students for Life will be doing at the Women’s March:

We will not compromise our pro-life position.

We will not be inconsistent.

We WILL march on behalf of equal rights for all humans, born and preborn.

New website lists Planned Parenthood charges, investigations

In July 2015, the Center for Medical Progress released the first undercover videos in a long series of investigations into the fetal trafficking industry, revealing the dark underbelly of the abortion industry, one that callously negotiated for the sale of body parts of aborted babies.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has been a major player in the undercover videos with many of their abortionists and executives featured.  The videos shed light on possible criminal activity by Planned Parenthood and their partners in the for-profit baby parts industry.pp charges

This was the catalyst that launched multiple investigations and led to the creation of the Select Panel on Infant Lives in the U.S. House of Representatives, which was tasked with investigating the fetal tissue for-profit industry.

Planned Parenthood, their vendors, and other allies have broken multiple laws and are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Government, some universities, and a few states.

We created a special website – www.PPCharges.com – to help keep track of as many of those investigations under one roof as possible. We list criminal referrals that have been made, on-going criminal investigations, as well as the organizations involved.

So bookmark www.PPCharges.com when you need a reference to the ongoing investigations and criminal charges and to show friends and family the extensive list.

DC Restaurant Donating Proceeds of Burgers to Planned Parenthood Gets Owned

As most people are who care deeply about a certain topic are apt to do, they will go to great lengths to support businesses who also value the same concerns – or refuse to frequent establishments that believe otherwise. Abortion is one of those issues that is literally about life or death and both sides are passionate. One restaurant came down on the wrong side of this issue and pro-lifers took the opportunity to educate them about Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood has been in the news a LOT recently, actually over the past year and a half, since undercover videos showed them haggling over the prices of the body parts of babies they aborted and selling them for profit. The “non-profit” has been referred for over 15 criminal charges by the U.S. House and Senate and is facing lawsuits and investigations in several states.

Why does this matter? For one, they are betraying women and selling their preborn babies out for profit. That’s horrible and illegal. Secondly, Planned Parenthood gets 43% of their revenue from taxpayers, which equaled over $553 million in 2015. There are a lot of taxpayers who don’t want to be forced donors to Planned Parenthood and the new government is making plans to finally defund the abortion giant.

That said, it’s understandable then that some people may be a bit bothered when a business goes out of their way to support Planned Parenthood. A restaurant right outside of Washington, DC was selling a burger/fries/donut combo yesterday for $20 and gave $5 of that price to Planned Parenthood.

“This restaurant can certainly do as it pleases and serve the food they want to but what a horrible business move to support the nation’s largest abortion vendor and not take a second to look at the scandal-ridden non-profit and maybe reconsider that decision,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America. “Pro-lifers were right to take the opportunity to use the Community Restaurant’s Facebook page to expose Planned Parenthood for the criminal enterprise that they are and publicly force patrons to rethink their support of the abortion giant.”

Pro-lifers and others who know the truth about Planned Parenthood noticed the burger special and headed over to Community Restaurant’s Facebook page to voice their concerns, where the restaurant responded in a most non-businesslike way:
