The commonwealth is using taxpayer money to tell kids how to get a secret abortion, and that’s wrong,' Linda Thayer, a former Boston schoolteacher who is vice president for educational affairs of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, told the Boston Herald.Yes, you may experience temporary discomfort once it becomes clear you have killed your child.
This is a misuse of state funds, especially for parents who are taxpayers,' she added.
Thayer also blasted the website for 'deception by omission' for describing abortion as 'when the contents of the womb (uterus) are removed.'
The website features a fictional so-called hip teen called Maria, an 18 year old living in Boston, 'who got overwhelmed with all of the information about birth control and sex on the web.'
Maria describes abortion as a 'hot topic' which is 'more common than you might think.'
She goes on to say it is 'safe and effective, though some people may experience temporary discomfort.'
The site goes on to inform teens if they find themselves with an unwanted uterine growth and they don't want their parents to know, they need only go to a judge and viola'! court endorsed murder. And have no fear, when you get that weird feeling in the pit of your stomach, (you know, like when you break mom's favorite vase but blame it on the cat) if you feel uncomfortable skirting the law, Maria tells you people do it all the time.
I know it sounds crazy,' Maria said. 'This really can be done and young women do this all the time here in Massachusetts.'Ahh, well there you go, Planned Parenthood is there for you kids. They will help you get a lawyer AND an abortion. It's one stop shopping.
The website then directs teens to Planned Parenthood, telling them the agency will either help them talk to parents or provide a lawyer to guide them through the judicial process.
The way this site talks about abortion to young teens, as though it is no big deal instead of the life altering decision it really is, is revolting. The fact that they do it with taxpayer funds should be criminal.
