A Vacuous Apology; A Not-So-Subtle Distinction

First off, I just got back from class, loaded up the blog, looked at this morning's Dr. Dick comment, chuckled, and felt bad about it.

That was a low blow. For this, I apologize to Mr. Dembski. In the future, I will restrain myself from responding to the opposition's juvenile ad hominem assaults with my own. Unless they're--at the very least--much funnier than that one was. Also, this is theoretically a family blog so I should keep the dick jokes to a minimum. Theoretically.

Second: Apparently the conservative blogosphere is quite irate about Golden Gate Planned Parenthood's new initiative, a rather standard viral marketing scheme in which one can win movie tickets by telling a friend about them, or register in an iPod drawing by making an appointment. As LifeNews puts it:

"These are some of the schemes Planned Parenthood is using to lure teenagers into its deadly facilities,” said Douglas Scott, president of Life Decisions International, a group that organizes boycotts of companies that contribute to the abortion business.

“Now which age group is most likely to be swayed by this kind of gimmick?” Scott asked. “This incentive is clearly aimed at young people.”

“Planned Parenthood has resorted to common corporate tactics in an effort to get young people to encourage their peers to voluntarily become the pro-abortion group's new victims," he said.

I'm not trying to talk down to people here, or assume they're stupid or anything, but come on: do these people realize the diversity of services Planned Parenthood offers for both genders? Or do they just not care? Is it evil to get an affordable physical from a non-profit, just because they also offer abortions, contraception, and STD testing? Or is it just intrinsiclaly sinful to encourage teenage girls to get cheap, regular gynecological exams? I'm very confused on this: I'm sort of forced to believe by the content of comments that this large group of people that has nothing better to do with their time than rail about the evils of Planned Parenthood doesn't actually have the slightest clue what they actually DO other than perform abortions for women in need. It comes across as a bit ridiculous.
