Planned Parenthood Solicits Just-Turned-18-Year-Old for Funding

Planned Parenthood Solicits Just-Turned-18-Year-Old for Funding

It’s your 18th birthday – a milestone event in your life. You’re getting ready to go to college. You can vote.

And you can give money to Planned Parenthood.

At least, that’s what Planned Parenthood’s fundraising arm seems to think. This week, received information that Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., is sending out fundraising letters to girls who have just turned 18.

But there’s only one way to stop it –

We must stand up for common sense and stand with Planned Parenthood against these attacks.

The adage “get ’em while they’re young” certainly seems to apply here. Planned Parenthood uses the letter to request that young girls become members by making “a generous contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 – or whatever you can afford.” Call it Planned Parenthood’s Barely Legal campaign.
