Middle school students field trip to Planned Parenthood abortion clinic
Yet another incident of deliberate sabotage of family rights . . .
I am a California transplant living in New Hampshire, pretty close to Amherst where the school had a Middle Eastern theme evening, and I thought NH was conservative!
Well, I thought you would be interested in knowing that last week the YMCA in Manchester, NH took a group of 41 middle school age children to Planned Parenthood on a field trip, to see â€œnonprofit agenciesâ€.
Read the article here and note the media spin that somehow the protesters were more offensive than a "clinic" which specializes in murdering babies:
I was shocked! I know some of the people that were praying in front of Planned Parenthood and they were in no way harassing or yelling at the children. I love how the media is able to skew the situation.
What do kids think about how risky their existence is? Oh, come to think about it, I wrote about that: Second Thoughts on Reproductive Freedom.
HT: Sarah in New Hampshire.
I don't know what's more disturbing: the fact that they were taken on this field trip, or that (currently) 37% of people responding to a survey on the newschannel's website are saying that the children *should have been taken there on a field trip.
Because there are no other nonprofits they could have taken them to, of course. Silly me.

Actually, the idea that Planned Parenthood is a non-profit is an absolute myth as they are a huge money-making machine. The "free" abortions they arrange in their profitable abortion clinics are only free to "poor" women or teenage girls who are are afraid to tell their parents are paid for with your tax dollars as PP uses the government system to recoup the costs.
