While that may suck for you, I couldn't help but chuckle a little at the thought of someone doing that. Honestly if I were you I'd do little things to mess with her like leave pamphlet and other things around since she wants to be petty

Why do people have to be like this? I'm a christian male with nothing but support for homosexuals, transgender, abortions, other religions and pretty much anything else. No need to group us all.

You're not a Christian. Very few people are. You follow your own ideals and pick places where the bible aligns with them. That's what 99% of "Christians" do. It just so happens that OP's mom's views align with more archaic parts of the bible, and that turns her into an asshole sometimes.

#39 Because people like you, if you are truly faithful, are the exceptions to the rule. Religion generally makes the world a worse place and has done for a long time, and churches (and believers) who don't usually are ignoring or setting aside many of the scriptures their religion uses in order to be like that. So good for you for being a reasonable person, but experience shows it tends to be in spite of religion, not because of it.

It's not the actual religion that is bad. Religion is a good way for people to feel good about themselves and do things for others. Religion only is bad when people try to push their views on to other people who want no part of it or blow things out of proportion and act ridiculous because someone isn't following what they believe to be "righteous"

#69 No, it's religion. Religion usually involves dogma and people are encouraged to take things on faith, even when there is no evidence or even strong evidence to the contrary. It encourages absolute thinking and discourages (or even forbids) doubt or questioning of the religion. Good religious people are often good despite their faith rather than because of it. As a person who is ex-religious, I saw this in many people, including myself.

"Not physically attacking your daughter" is a bare minimum threshold of acceptable human behavior, not something for which a person should be receiving accolades.

regardless of your opinion toward abortion, planned parenthood is so much than a facility that provides it. it's a wonderful organization that offers affordable reproductive care and council to many who need it. admittedly, I'm pro choice myself but I still think I would support it no matter what

Reply

If a non sentient fetus is unborn, and let's face it, the vast majority of abortions at Planned Parenthood are done well before measurable brain waves occur, does that mean we should start referring to each other as undead?

Also, if someone gets an abortion, it'd probably either due to medical reasons or complete inability to provide for a child at that point in their lives. It's more responsible than letting a kid be born into a bad life.

Too bad the thumbs-down option goes away when someone's comment is buried. And it can't be said enough: Planned Parenthood does more than just abortions. Like ensuring women have access to contraceptives so it's less likely they'll need an abortion. OP, thank you for the good work you and others in Planned Parenthood facilities across the country do.

#4 I'd only give her credit if she prayed for her daughter on her own time, & actually discussed it with her daughter while she's there. Passive aggressively "praying until she leaves the room" means she is ignoring anything her daughter says & praying more for show than actual prayer, which is petty, insulting, & doesn't accomplish anything useful. #35 I'm on the app & I still have the thumbs-down option.

#46 All those videos about Planned Parenthood lying to their patients were false. The nurses, doctors, and patients were all actors. Even the anti-abortion organization that submitted the videos admitted to this.

Further responding to one post prior: You complain they count every condom handed out as a service. You don't agree with that? Every condom they hand out could potentially avoid an abortion!

Reply

I think he also doesn't understand that abortions still cost money at PP (hundreds of dollars, actually) while they give away condoms for free. Of course that will count for a larger chunk of their revenue.

well done gracehi... you single handedly made your yourself look retarded lol throwing numbers that don't exist to support your opinion - is also a lie(: good luck w/ life & may the force be with you...

#48 Is having an abortion really that different from denying a patient dying of kidney failure one of your own kidneys? In either instance, somone is going to draw the short straw. True, someone else could come along and donate, but it's not guaranteed. Many patients die waiting for organ donors. And yet, there's no protest group trying to force people to donate their organs.

Reply

It's also not your body that dies when denying an organ to a patient who needs it. You're still making a choice, considered selfish by outsiders, that results in someone else's life or development ending. But you cannot be forced to donate because of bodily autonomy. A fetus falls under this as well. Even dead bodies can't be forced to donate, unless they gave consent before their death. By denying pregnant women the right to abort, you are: 1. Granting unborn fetuses more rights to other people's bodies than anyone who is already born. 2. Giving pregnant women less rights to their own bodies than corpses.

You should make a habit of walking in and out of rooms repeatedly. Mother: *folding laundry* You: "Hey –" Mother: "AGHH!" *throws laundry, prostrates, hits face on coffee table* You: "Never mind, I forgot." And repeat.

Is there any possibility a long, honest talk about what Planned Parenthood does (way more than providing abortion, I assume), why you chose to work with them, and how your job is genuinely helping people would do any good, or is she too convinced of her own opinion for that? Ok I guess the praying-until-you-leave-the-room-thing already suggests a no to that question, but maybe she'll become a bit more reasonable once she's gotten over the initial shock... Good luck OP, must be tough when your mother has such radically different views.

Reply

Could it be worth talking to her pastor about how she is acting (after speaking to her first though)? Most Christians preach love and kindness even if some don't agree with things like abortions. Or could one of your colleagues talk to your mother? Might she be more willing to listen or at least act less passive aggressive with another person?
