'I Had An Abortion' T-Shirt 'Insensitive,' Pro-Life Group Says

(CNSNews.com) - A pro-life group is outraged at the "insensitivity" of the nation's largest abortion provider who is selling t-shirts that proudly state, "I had an abortion."

Planned Parenthood's website advertises the t-shirt as "yet another t-shirt in our new social fashion line." It adds, "These soft and comfortable fitted tees assert a powerful message in support of women's rights."

"Once again, the callousness and insensitivity of Planned Parenthood provides another example of just how out of touch they are with the reality of abortion and the impact it has on women," said Olivia Gans, director of American Victims of Abortion, an outreach of National Right to Life.

"It is pretty clear that Planned Parenthood puts promoting abortion above concern for women," she said in a statement.

"Every abortion not only ends a life, but it can leave a woman emotionally wounded, said Gans. "The experience of abortion is traumatic and devastating and I am appalled that Planned Parenthood would exploit the tragic experience of women like myself to further their agenda," said Gans.
