Every society acknowledges merit, even societies twisted by disease. It’s just that sick societies have sick ideas of what merit is:
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains gave its Aurora abortion clinic an award certificate for “exceeding abortion visits [in the] first half of FY12 compared to the first half of FY13.”
This picture of the award was taken by a former worker who saw it on a bulletin board in Denver:
So much for the bumper sticker slogan “Safe, legal, and rare.” Abortions are the farthest thing from safe for the babies who get torn apart as they scream, and Planned Parenthood certainly doesn’t want them to become rare. They are legal though.
The depravity of granting awards based on the number of innocents killed does not apply only to a sick cult of abortion fanatics. In our time, Planned Parenthood is the establishment. Despite raking in $1.21 billion last year, it was treated to $540,600,000 in government funding — not because it needs the money, obviously, but for ideological reasons.
America can still become healthy again. But it is going to take some work.
