Gross. Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards knows what women want for Valentine’s Day.
They want abortions.

For most women Valentine’s day invokes feelings of romance and expressions of love. However, for Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, men can skip the chocolates, the back rubs and the flowers, because what women really need most for Valentine’s day is a “safe abortion.”
In a global Internet search of the varied customs of Valentine’s day expressions of love, there were zero mentions of other abortion traditions. It appears that Ms. Richards can safely claim that she is the seminal inspiration for the “avant-garde” concept that having an abortion is a value to be shared on Valentine’s day. Pro-life advocates might not be ready to wish her congratulations.
Planned Parenthood is the largest provider and promoter of abortion in the US. In 2012, the organization provided over 327,000 abortion procedures while referring only 2,197 for adoption services.
