LETTER: Philanthropic and Planned Parenthood? Oxymoron

To the editor:

I write in regards to the entirely inappropriate and very misleading use of the word "philanthropic" in Tuesday's page-3 article in bold half-inch letters regarding the Planned Parenthood chocolate festival.

Webster defines philanthropic as "possessing general benevolence; entertaining good will towards all men; loving mankind. Directed to the general good."

Can you think of any organization that is more anti-philanthropic than the largest abortion provider in the U.S.?

I think murdering unborn children is about as far from "loving mankind" as is humanly possible.
