MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine on CNN: Abortion Mourn or Celebrate?



CNN Your Business Blogger is an advocate for sending a hand written-note to mourn with a friend’s loss; to appreciate a thoughtful action; a job well done or an event well hosted.

My helpmeet and I like to think that we have written mail bags full of cards to mark many life events — But we have just learned that we have been delinquent. There is one life event we have missed.

We’ve never sent an abortion card.

Charmaine will be on CNN Headline News – Prime News, tonight, Friday, to debate Aspen Baker the Executive Director of Exhale.

Exhale wants to comfort or celebrate the abortion. A bit hard to tell from their website,

Do you know someone who’s had an abortion?

Are you having trouble knowing what to say?

Do you want to let them know you care?

Send them an e-card.

Remember, each person’s experience with abortion is unique. These e-cards were created to address the range of experiences people can have with abortion. As you consider which e-card to send, think about the person you are sending it to. What do they need to know? What are they feeling? What message will provide the most comfort?

Exhale’s board of directors is made up of members of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups.

Hit time is 6:15 pm Eastern. Please tune in and let us know what you think.

  1. Hey there…I didn’t see the appearance, but I did write about the issue over at Active Christian Media. I took the slant that this campaign just proves our point – abortion causes pain.

    And then I challenge the church to stop griping about it and follow in this groups footsteps by sending or making real cards that will help post abortive women.
