Of Children and Choices

Posted by Adam Graham on May 20, 2007

Jill Stanek has news of Planned Parenthood selling a onesie jumper with “Mommy’s Little Choice” on it. This is interesting from Planned Parenthood as they attacked the movie The Ultimate Gift for an anti-abortion message but all the mother said was that her child was the best choice she ever made.

One mesage from a pro-choice perspective, one from a pro-choice perspective what’s the difference? Perhaps, it’s the message behind the message. In the Ultimate Gift, the mother was praising the wonder of her child. In the case of the Planned Parenthood onesie, what is being proclaimed is the mother’s power and the mother’s choice and remembering that the reason their children are here is because they chose not to use their power to destroy them.
