THE NATION : NATIONAL BRIEFING / AND FINALLY . . .

Giving the gift of birth control

November 28, 2008|times wire reports

At Planned Parenthood of Indiana, 'tis the season of giving healthcare and contraception.

The network of 35 clinics across the state announced it is offering holiday vouchers for basic healthcare services, "the recipient's choice of birth control method" and abortions. The gift certificates can be purchased in increments of $25 online or for any dollar amount at some Planned Parenthood of Indiana health centers.

Opponents of abortion and artificial birth control, however, said the gesture denigrated the holiday season.

"They deserve coal in their stocking, not money for lethal gift certificates," said Sister Diane Carollo, director of the Office for Pro-Life Ministry for the Catholic Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
