As if we needed more

In the wake of the mighty "The Pill Kills" protest going on today (although you wouldn't know it from the Canadian blogosphere), I thought it was timely to stumble over yet more proof that ersatz anti-choice concern for Teh Baybeez begins at conception and ends at birth:
"An anti-abortion group has broken up a deal between Planned Parenthood and Habitat for Humanity by blasting out 10,000 e-mails to Habitat supporters.

Planned Parenthood is building a 23,000-square-foot regional headquarters on Central Avenue, and planned to sell Habitat the land next door for a token $10 to build three below-market-cost houses. The deal benefited Planned Parenthood because the city required the clinic to put up buildings as a buffer between its parking lot and Cohen Way.

"We could have put up any building we wanted," said Barbara Zdravecky, president of Planned Parenthood. "We wanted to donate the land so Habitat could build more attainable housing."

But after Habitat donors learned about it and complained, Habitat International told the local board to drop it. The local Habitat board dropped the deal Tuesday night, less than a month before it was set for a final vote by the city."

And there you have it: affordable housing, which most likely would have provided homes to some underprivileged kids, deep-sixed by fetus fetishists because the property was generously donated (okay, sold -- for $10!) to Habitat by Planned Parenthood . And what nefarious zygoteers were behind it?

"The barrage of e-mails started with James Sedlak, vice president of the American Life League, a Virginia-based group that has led protests at Planned Parenthood offices in Sarasota. They said it showed a cozy relationship between Habitat and Planned Parenthood, which the league has accused of pushing pornography to children, among other things." (emphasis mine)

Well well, the American Life League, ovulation-obsessed fuckwits and proud sponsors of the "Pill Kills" protest, which implores us to "Think of the zygotes!!!" Fetus fetishists, protesting for those in utero and stiffing the rest.

UPDATE: April Reign was already all over this one.
