I am outraged. And you should be too.
Christmas season is a time for generosity and kindness. It is a time for joy and appreciation. And it is a time to give thanks for the gift of Life.
But in Planned Parenthood's world, this is the time of year to evangelize for the unholy gospel of taxpayer-funded abortion.
I recently received an email from Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards about its deplorable "Choice on Earth" campaign. She makes a disgusting mockery of the traditional Christmas spirit of Peace on Earth. But Peace on Earth is not on Planned Parenthood's agenda this Christmas. Their mission is about more abortions, more tragedies, and more broken families – and they want you and me to foot the bill for all of it.
Planned Parenthood's outrageous email even boasts about its shameful role in passing the largest increase in taxpayer-funded abortion since Roe v. Wade. And it brags about young "teens" who rely on their abortion services, as if an abortion clinic was nothing more than a shopping mall or dry cleaner. I was appalled to read it – and am more determined than ever to stop them.
Will you help us fight back against Planned Parenthood and their shameful pro-abortion marketing tactics by making an immediate tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100, $250 or more for life? Planned Parenthood, and its national network of abortion clinics, are redoubling their grassroots outreach and lobbying efforts during this critical lame duck session – and we're in a do-or-die race with them as we ramp up our own life-saving, year-end effort.
Just how low will Planned Parenthood stoop? In their latest fundraising gimmick, they are even handing out gift certificates for abortions as Christmas "stocking stuffers!" We knew that Planned Parenthood only cares about growing the number of abortions to fatten its bottom line, but this one came as a shock, even to us.
Will you help us fight back against Planned Parenthood and their shameful pro-abortion marketing tactics by making an immediate tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100, $250 or more for life? Please make a life-saving, end-of-year gift to Americans United for Life. There is no limit to what you can give today and every dollar you contribute can be written-off as a charitable contribution for federal tax purposes.
Let's send an unmistakable message to Planned Parenthood this Christmas season: abortion is not the gift of Life!
Yours for Life,

P.S. Planned Parenthood is redoubling its end-of-year campaign to spread abortion. We must fight back against shameful tactics like gift certificates for abortions that will only grow Planned Parenthood’s $1 billion annual budget. Please make an immediate, tax-deductible donation of $50, $100, $250 or more so we’ll have the resources to stop Planned Parenthood during the Christmas season. I recently told you that AUL will need at least $238,000 to sustain our pro-life momentum into 2011. There is no limit to what you can give today and every dollar you contribute can be written-off as a charitable contribution for federal tax purposes. Thank you for your continued support – Charmaine
