Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) – Famous children’s author Judy Blume is no stranger to controversy, but she’s added to herself to a list of people who will be remembered for something more devastating. Blume is lending her name to the solicitation of donations for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.
In a new missive ironically celebrating mothers day, Blume suggests sending a donation to the pro-abortion group to honor mothers.
"Say thanks this Mother’s Day with a gift that honors her courage by making a donation to Planned Parenthood in her name. I guarantee you that she’ll be pleased. I know I would be,’ Blume writes.
“There is no organization that I know of that supports motherhood and all that it means more than Planned Parenthood. That’s why I’m honoring moms everywhere with my gift to Planned Parenthood today,” Blume adds.
Blume notes how more woman are seeking abortions form Planned Parenthood because of the difficult economy and she urges readers of the email to use that as a reason to support the abortion business.
“And right now — with more and more women seeking care from Planned Parenthood health centers — we need to do all we can to support them. By honoring a mother in your life, you’ll be making a gift to millions of mothers and families who seek care from Planned Parenthood. That’s a gift any mother will appreciate,” she concludes.
Planned Parenthood offers to send a card to any donor’s mother saying that a person sent a donation to the pro-abortion group in her name.
In a pub note that goes along with the fundraising letter, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards thanks Blume for her support.
“There are very few writers who have helped more young people grow up and grapple with their changing bodies and emotions than Judy Blume,” she writes.
“I count myself among her biggest and most grateful fans — and am so lucky to call her my friend. I’m honored to relay her message about motherhood to you today,” Richards adds.
