“Choice on Earth, good will to all”

This message from Cecile Richards (the president of Planned Parenthood) just arrived in my inbox:

“Choice on earth…”
A message from Cecile Richards
Choice on earth…good will to all.
As I reflect upon the past year and consider the next, I can’t help but feel a sense of good will. Good will toward the women, men, and families that we serve. Good will toward you, my Planned Parenthood family. And good, determined will to accomplish the work that lies ahead in the new year.
Warm wishes for you and yours during this holiday season. And thank you for your help and commitment.
Many thanks,
Cecile Richards, President
Planned Parenthood Federation of America

The “choice on Earth, good will to all” line is a bastardized version of Luke 2:8-14.

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Planned Parenthood completely misses the irony of wishing us all “happy abortions” by borrowing language used to celebrate the most famous birth in history.
You can’t make up stuff this absurd.
