Plants for Patients

Plants for Patients—has a kind of Zen sound to it. Volunteers hand-make small pots, filled with a succulent plant. They’re given to women to take home after their abortion. The group claims to not be pro-abortion, but one of their goals is to take away the stigma of abortion. Their website tells women who’ve had abortions that they “make wise decisions coming from love.” So, when reality settles in for the post-abortive woman. Not to worry—just look at your plant. When depression takes over—just water your plant. When emotionally devastated? I’ve got a better idea. Throw the plant out and call a local pro-life women help center to get you on the road to hope and healing. It’s insulting to tell a woman a potted plant can take the place of her baby.
