Women’s Health Clinics Offer $10 Discount, “Pro-Life” Fanatics Freak Out

The right wing war on women’s reproductive rights
Wingnuts • Views: 31,902

On the day after Thanksgiving, a couple of women’s health centers in Florida offered a $10 discount on a clinic visit — leading to a freak-out by anti-abortion nuts, who seem to think that because the clinics are affiliated with Planned Parenthood, this can only mean one thing: the evil Planned Parenthood is selling discounted abortions.

Health Center Specials - Planned Parenthood - South Florida and the Treasure Coast:

The propaganda originates at crazed anti-choice website lifenews.com: Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic Offers Black Friday Discount | LifeNews.com.

A Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in souther Florida is offering a black Friday discount — including $10 off a visit to the abortion center today.

Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast offered the special, saying, “Visit our West Palm Beach or Kendall Health Center for special after Thanksgiving savings on Friday, November 23rd.”

Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek noticed the Black Friday discount and responded, “Planned Parenthood brings new meaning to the term, “Black Friday,” doesn’t it?”

This is all it takes to provoke right wing bloggers into raving about killing babies. Just a couple of examples out of many:

The always-insane Jim Hoft thinks this is the beginning of something, but he doesn’t say what: It Begins… Planned Parenthood Offers Black Friday Discounts on Abortions.

With a picture of a fetus, of course.

Rick Moran at PJ Media says this $10 discount on a clinic visit is so despicable, everyone should agree immediately to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood even if you’re not an anti-choice fanatic: The PJ Tatler » Giving New Meaning to the Term ‘Black Friday’.

Even if you are pro-choice, the inappropriateness and tastelessness of such a “discount” has to disturb you. And if anything, it should renew calls for defunding the organization. If PP wants to act like a commercial concern by taking part in Black Friday “sales,” it doesn’t need federal money to prop it up. It can survive on its own in the marketplace by retailing abortion and other health-related services just like any other business.

It shouldn’t need to be pointed out again, but just to emphasize how stupidly deceptive this attack is, Planned Parenthood clinics provide a wide range of women’s health services, not just abortion — and in fact, abortions account for only about 3% of what PP health centers do:
