What other mission credit card applications perform...

Pro-life and pro-choice issue has been heating up discussions in the governmental circles and credit card companies are joining in. For now legislation allows all big credit card companies such as Bank of America, American Express, Citibank and Discover, to enable their customers to apply for credit cards and make donations to the Planned Parenthood and other non-profit liberal abortion rights group.

It works similar to charity credit cards. For example, when you apply online for Chase Bank BP Rewards Visa and get approved of it, you get a chance to use your rebates as a donation to the Reservation fund, a non-profit nature protection organization.

It goes just the same way with abortion rights organizations fighting to make the world more “human” and more environmentally friendly. With all the provision of Democrats pushing their pro-choice views, it is not unlawful to contribute to the abortion supporters’ fund through making phone calls or paying with a credit card.

It has only come to the issue of the moral choice. Do you find it unacceptable to use your credit card and pay with it to contribute to the promotion of the killing of the unborn?Or do you find it more important to preserve democracy and grant freedom to women to get rid of the unwanted children.

As things are, a great part of people are inclined and ready to support the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and they are actively using credit cards for the purpose. In an attempt to support abortions, credit consumers turn the process of discharging with their credit cards into “personal backing”.

How do they implement their act of support? There’s nothing easier, considering the Planned Parenthood strong and determined desire to raise funds. Making a phone call, you donate 10 percent of the profit to the abortion rights group. If you use a credit card for the purpose, you can go to the official site of the company and make money transfer with it.

However, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America reflects its concern about the younger generation (high school and college students mostly) who appear to be pro-life and it is surprising.

At the moment the PPFA is attempting to gain support form this age group by pushing into universities their cell phone program. The program is likely to win customers by its provision of free calls to other cell phones within the network. Thus, when you make a call to one of your numerous friends, you donate a portion of the money spent to contribute to abortion.

Will the younger American follow? There’s no answer as yet. We’ll wait and see.

For the time being, however, there’s another burning issue caused by the pro-choice and pro-life dilemma. If you are an abortion foe, like most of the younger generation, and if you have credit, you run a high risk of not being able to file for bankruptcy to avoid paying fines and damages resulting from protest at abortion clinics. Up to now it has been common practice among abortion opponents to use abortion laws to avoid paying the court-imposed rights. According to one of the abortion foes’ words, “...I am not willing to pay my debts which will go to support all those “human and liberal” abortion rights groups...”

If bankruptcy laws are rewritten and the credit rules are tightened on debtors fighting against abortion, will they continue to persist in their pro-life line? Is the threat of debt prison strong enough for them to refuse from the protection of the unborn? It is still unclear yet and in fact the outcome of the face-off depends on each single voice and action for choice or for life...
