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.
