Here’s the message posted on the Planned Parenthood website:
To those who go to unimaginable extremes to close our doors:
We deplore your violence. We reject your threats. We fight your legislation to limit reproductive rights and health care in every corner of our country.
We believe your actions and words hurt women — whether by making it impossible to seek health care or by creating a climate of disrespect and hostility that fosters extremist violence.
We demand an end to the incendiary rhetoric from anti-abortion activists and lawmakers that demonizes Planned Parenthood doctors and patients. The smear campaign and false accusations that motivated the attack in Colorado Springs must stop.
We aren’t going anywhere. Planned Parenthood has been here for nearly 100 years, and we will keep being here as long as women, men, and young people need health care with dignity.
To those who go to shocking extremes to close our doors, know this:
These doors stay open.
Now read The Arizona Conservative’s response to Planned Parenthood:
To those who go to unimaginable extremes to degrade our culture and put profit over life:
We deplore your killing of 330,000 innocent Americans each year. And the maiming and physical and psychological wounding of countless women. And refusing to put health and safety first. And defrauding the government of taxpayer money. And refusing to report the rapes of under-age girls.
We reject your defiance, your questionable practices and your lack of ethics.
We vow to hold you accountable for the degradation of humanity.
We see you hurting women, killing children, looking the other way at rapists, your hypocritical pretense at standing for the women you exploit and your blatant disregard for America’s taxpayers.
We demand an end to your anger and your incendiary, hateful rhetoric, as well as your lies about having done mammograms and your false claim that a “smear campaign and false accusations” caused a mentally deranged madman to go on a shooting spree at Colorado Springs. Your words are defamatory, slanderous and libelous. As well as insulting. Stop pretending to speak for women – whom you exploit.
We are thankful you are in retreat. Many of your clinics are closing down, rather than meet state health regulations (putting women at heightened risk), rather than hire doctors who have admittance at hospitals. You wouldn’t know the word dignity if it stared you right in the face.
Your house of cards is unraveling. Corporations are hiding their associations with you.
Abortion is in decline. You are in retreat. The truth is coming out. You’ve been taking our culture down. And we will not go with you. Your doors will stay open for now, but there are fewer of them.
Peace on earth. Good will to men, women and children.
