A recent e-mail communication from Jatrice Martel Gaiter, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., urged supporters to "honor your mother in a very special way" with a financial contribution to Planned Parenthood. Gaiter said that at Planned Parenthood's Washington affiliate, "Mother's Day also reminds us of our mission – to ensure that every child is wanted, nurtured, and enormously loved."

So is Planned Parenthood fulfilling its mission? Are children more nurtured and loved than they were before abortion became readily available? Is there less child abuse nowadays? (I'm inclined to think not.) Exactly what metrics does Planned Parenthood use to measure its success?
