For the third straight year, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s No. 1 abortion provider, is selling greeting cards with the holiday message “Choice on Earth.”

This year’s offering, which includes bright pink snow flakes and the now-infamous phrase, is available at the organization’s online store.

Two years ago, outcry about the cards in the media, Planned Parenthood claimed, actually spiked sales of the items, as well as “Choice on Earth” T-shirts.

“‘Tis the season to share with family, friends, colleagues and loved ones the message of ‘choice on earth.’ Place your orders now for the 2004 Holiday Card,” states the card’s page on the group’s online store.

Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League’s STOPP International, slammed Planned Parenthood for once again offering the greeting cards.

“In its continual attempt to ‘normalize’ abortion, Planned Parenthood has once again chosen to offend the Christian community by releasing the latest edition of its ‘Choice on Earth’ holiday cards,” said Sedlak in a statement. “Contrary to the open-minded image the abortion organization aims to present for itself, Planned Parenthood has zero tolerance for anyone – or any religious group – that recognizes abortion as an evil act that kills a pre-born baby.”

The controversial theme is derived from a passage in the Gospel of Luke, where an angel announces to shepherds the birth of their savior in Bethlehem.

The King James version of the Bible states: “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, good will toward men.'”

“By replacing ‘peace’ with ‘choice,’ or more accurately, ‘killing the innocent on earth,’ Planned Parenthood is essentially saying ‘abortion on earth,'” Sedlak said. “This blatant mockery of Christian values – and of Christ Himself – truly demonstrates the bigoted, anti-religion, anti-God nature of Planned Parenthood.”
