Planned Parenthood gift certificates for holidays called ‘offensive’

INDIANAPOLIS (CNS) — A holiday gift-certificate campaign by Planned Parenthood of Indiana “is offensive because Christmas is about celebrating the gift of human life,” said the director of the pro-life ministry office of the Indianapolis Archdiocese. Sister Diane Carollo made the comments in a nationally televised interview Dec. 3 on ABC’s “Evening News.” The Planned Parenthood gift certificates are being advertised as “the gift of health,” and can be redeemed for “services or the recipient’s choice of birth control method,” according to the organization’s press release, which has generated local, state and national media coverage. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider. In a Dec. 4 interview with The Criterion, Indianapolis’ archdiocesan newspaper, Sister Diane called it “outrageous that Planned Parenthood would have the audacity to offer lethal gift certificates for the Christmas holiday.” A member of the Servants of the Gospel of Life, she has headed the pro-life ministry for nine years.
