Have you socked it to Planned Parenthood yet?

A few weeks ago, Students for Life of America (SFLA) launched its #SockIt2PP campaign. Their goal is to collect 323,999 baby socks—in memory of the 323,999 preborn babies killed by abortions at Planned Parenthood last year—and deliver them to Congress, calling for defunding of the nation's largest abortion chain. SFLA is asking supporters to purchase a pair of baby socks, deliver one to SFLA, and pin the other to our backpacks as a conversation-starter.

I'm a little late to the party. To make up for that, I didn't just buy a pair. I bought the 8-pack:

D'awwww...

According to the #SockIt2PP website, shipping one sock costs six forever stamps. I wasn't sure how much it would be for seven socks, so I went to the post office. It wound up costing a whopping $1.19.

Pfft, like I'm going to tell the internet where I live.

As for the remaining sock, I'm no longer a student and the backpack stage of my life is behind me. So I decided to hang it from my rearview mirror instead. My hope is that it will be a daily reminder of the victims of abortion, and motivate me to work ever harder for the day that the right to life is restored.

"What have you done to end abortion today? Nothing?? DISHONOR! Dishonor on you! Dishonor on your sock-cow!"

#SockIt2PP is continuing to collect socks through April 18, so no more procrastinating. If you want Congress to get your message in time for the Planned Parenthood defunding vote, now is the time!
