So here's the bit about Judy Blume which you may have already heard since it was for Mother's Day:
Famous children's author Judy Blume has added to herself to the devastating list of people who solicits donations for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business.
In a new massively ironical way to celebrate Mother's Day, Blume suggests sending a donation to the pro-abortion group to honor mothers.
Author Judy Blume, states on her webpage judyblume.com
"Say thanks this Mother's Day with a gift that honors her courage by making a donation to Planned Parenthood in her name. I guarantee you that she'll be pleased. I know I would be."....That makes no sense to me at all. How on earth does Planned Parenthood support motherhood?????? It is an organization that robs women of the role motherhood of bringing precious lives into this world by seeking and encouraging women to kill these babies, their children through abortion. Planned Parenthood dishonors motherhood and hurts women by not giving them all the facts and telling them it is a merely a "harmless procedure".
"There is no organization that I know of that supports motherhood and all that it means more than Planned Parenthood. That's why I'm honoring moms everywhere with my gift to Planned Parenthood today." ....
"And right now — with more and more women seeking care from Planned Parenthood health centers — we need to do all we can to support them. By honoring a mother in your life, you'll be making a gift to millions of mothers and families who seek care from Planned Parenthood. That's a gift any mother will appreciate."
