Planned Parenthood thinks it needs to educate us and ignore our values about abortion.

They are lobbying for the passage of AB980 by saying abortion should be "safe and common." I suggest a better mind than any at Planned Parenthood is our former president, Bill Clinton. He was right when he said abortion should be "safe and rare."

Planned Parenthood says taking a pill to induce abortion is like taking a pill for a common cold. Who really believes that? Not most of the American public. Atheist Sam Harris in his book "Letter to a Christian Nation" describes abortion with a single word, meaning the "strong disapproval of." His word was more descriptive.

The public would be wise to give input on AB980 in the California legislature.
