God Bless the Raving Atheist...

...for drawing attention to Planned Parenthood's "A Superhero for Choice" and outspokenly standing up for life. The R.A. writes of the cartoon hero's "slaughter of concededly peaceful and non-violent clinic protestors":

Yes, I suppose it’s all tongue-in-cheek, and no, I don’t consider it incitement to murder. But the message is clear enough: the abortion decision has no actual moral content and those who believe otherwise are (as portrayed in the cartoon) foolish, grunting ghouls.

The cartoon cannot be dismissed as an mere aberration or accident. It plainly represents the official policy of PPGG, and was funded out of its $20 million budget. The protagonist “Dian” is deliberately modeled after the organization’s president, Dian Harrison. To date, Planned Parenthood’s national organization has not renounced it or even commented on it.

For nearly a year I have volunteered for a Crisis Pregnancy Clinic. It provides medical assistance, shelter, diapers, toys and other supplies for new and expectant mothers. Some of its clients are recruited from in front of abortion clinics by the “ghouls” so ignorantly portrayed in Superhero. But as demonstrated by the baby pictures lining the CPC’s walls, their “victims” join the ranks of the living rather than the dead.
Read the whole thing.

By the way, Raving Atheist isn't the only one. Contrary to what Planned Parenthood would have you believe, one doesn't have to believe in God to believe that killing unborn life is wrong. Just ask the Atheistic and Agnostic Pro-Life League.
