Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

Need advice-Don't ask Dear Abby!

Perhaps this is old news, but I recently stumbled upon a "dear abby" article that left me with chills. Apparently Dear Abby is not only "pro-choice" but sprays venom at anyone who dares question her unwavering support for "Planned Parenthood"

Here is an excerpt:In trouble, don't tell your parents-abortion can help!
DEAR ABBY: You should read "Grand Illusions," George Grant's expose of the racist roots of Planned Parenthood. Not to have advised that girl to visit her local Crisis Pregnancy Center was misleading. -- LENORE IN MANHATTAN, MONT.

DEAR LENORE: Margaret Sanger, who founded the tiny birth control clinic that was to become the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, became a family planning crusader because she felt it was vital for POOR women (and that included women of color) to control their fertility and not be forced to have large families they couldn't take care of. A woman who is not in charge of her reproductive life is not in charge of her life. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the average woman, without birth control, would have between 12 and 15 pregnancies in her lifetime.

Planned Parenthood's mission is to help women make the right choice for THEM. For some, that means carrying a pregnancy to term. For others, it means using birth control. And for still others it can mean having an abortion. It is a matter of personal freedom and deeply personal choice.

P.S. I would advise women to go to Crisis Pregnancy Centers if I were convinced they wouldn't be forced to watch color videos of aborted fetuses.

All I can say is I will never respect Dear Abby again. In case you want someone who gives real, Christian advice Gabby is wonderful. Her website is here:
Gabby on Abortion


  • I once read a haighographic (sp?) article about Dear Abby praising her for how "caring" she was, in that she'd help arrange secret abortions for teenagers who wrote to her about their pregnancies.

    PP has a staunch ally in her.

  • argh! I hate that she actually has some validity with most people. Next I'll find out that Ms. Manners is also a closet NARAL employee :(
