Planned Parenthood's New Spokesman
Susan, pictured above, is the classic Planned Parenthood abortion client. Young and unwilling to shoulder the burdens of parenthood, Planned Parenthood assures women like her that the life she has conceived isn't really life unless she wants it to be, and that for her to stop its beating heart is simply her "choice." Susan made her choice, stopped two beating hearts, and freed herself of the burdens of unwelcome parenthood; she is the kind of woman abortion rights advocates hold up as a model of freedom and self-determination, and would make an excellent spokesman for Planned Parenthood.
Susan Smith's ability to serve as Planned Parenthood's spokesman may be somewhat compromised by the 30-years-to-life sentence she is serving for the 15th trimester abortion of her son Michael and the 8th trimester abortion of her son Alex, both abortions accomplished by strapping her sons into their car seats and sending the car to the bottom of John D. Long Lake. But I suppose even prisons have broadband connections and video capabilities, just put her in civilian clothes for her media appearances and no one will be the wiser.
All that matters is that Susan Smith didn't want to be a parent; she was young and had her whole life ahead of her, and it isn't as if those kids were capable of surviving on their own.
That's what Planned Parenthood wants you to believe. At least Susan Smith had the grace to get up in front of the television cameras and lie about it.
What Planned Parenthood does 900 times a day is no different than what Susan Smith did on that October night. For the pro-choice lie to demonstrate such staying power among otherwise reasonable people is a great source of shame.
