Dear Erica: Planned Parenthood NP:
I was disturbed and saddened at the Planned Parenthood Advertisement in the October 2015 edition of Nurse Practitioner Perspective (page 18). In light of the evidence that recently became public regarding the selling of fetuses for profit, it is difficult to understand how a highly educated caring professional, such as a nurse practitioner could be “proud” to be a part of such violent activities against children and society. Although the add states that at Planned Parenthood, they “Care. No matter what, “ it is difficult to find caring in a company profiting from the lucrative practice of performing Abortions and selling fetuses.
Abortion harms our children and their mothers. As a Nurse Practitioner and mother, I look forward to the day when places such as Planned Parenthood are no more.
