Dear Abby refers pregnant girl to Planned Parenthood

By Tom Quiner

A sixteen year old girl is pregnant.

What should she do? Well, she asks Dear Abby.

The girls spells out her dilemma to Abby:

“I know what my father will say. He will want me to get an abortion, but I would never choose that for myself or for my baby. My mother is struggling since she was released from prison and is still trying to get on her feet. I live with my grandparents, who don’t have the means to support a child.

It seems like my only option is to move in with my boyfriend and his family while I finish school and then get a job. Please give me an unbiased perspective.” UNCERTAIN IN THE SOUTH

Abby’s advice? Go to Planned Parenthood:

“You must also be sure to have the best prenatal care possible, so your child will be born healthy. Planned Parenthood has clinics where this care is offered, and you should contact it as soon as possible.”

What disappointing advice.

Planned Parenthood is a human abortion factory. Over half of their profits come from¬†convincing healthy women that aborting their healthy baby is the healthiest “choice” they can make.

Kudos to the sixteen year old girl for rejecting human abortion. She should stay away from Planned Parenthood who will try to dissuade her from carrying her child to term. She should Google ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ to find the help she needs.

Planned Parenthood hates crisis pregnancy centers and berates them. That’s a good endorsement if ever I’ve heard one.

Do me a favor. Drop Dear Abby a note and ask her to stop referring Planned Parenthood. Here’s her contact info:

    Appalling that Dear Abbey is so ignorant of the facts on this issue.

    I’d like to know the responses people get if they actually do contact “Dear Abby.” I confess to being jaded in my opinion of advice columnists. Perhaps she really is clueless about PP, but I suspect she really doesn’t care.

    I refuse to support the United Way, because some of their money goes to PP. I made that pretty clear at a school staff meeting once and was told by administration not to do that again.

      I don’t support United Way for the same reason.

      Not surprised.
