Letter to the editor: JCC support of Planned Parenthood
JCC & Planned Parenthood
The Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh will host a Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania fundraiser Nov. 9 titled “Drag Bingo In Support of PPWP.”
That the family-friendly JCC will host a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood is indicative of a general misunderstanding in the Jewish community about the abortion provider that kills innocent children. PPWP is marketed as a nonprofit health care option for women, but I believe it exploits vulnerable women and allows corruption of naïve minors with an organization built on the eugenics ideology of founder Margaret Sanger.
I wonder if the JCC leadership has been informed that Planned Parenthood clinics may fail to report sex trafficking, might not comply with standard medical practices and informed consent guidelines, and, I believe, promote unhealthy sexual lifestyles to teens.
PPWP destroys over 3,100 lives every year whose destiny on earth was violently interrupted in similar fashion to Jews’ lives historically — first denied personhood and equal protection under the law, then redefined as non-human, tortured and executed.
Judaism was the first religion in history to consider each human life as sacred, and the first to prohibit child sacrifice. To learn more, please visit www.jewishprolifefoundation.org.
