What do Valentine’s Day and Planned Parenthood have in common? Apparently, more than you might think.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards recently released a Valentine’s video on Twitter tagged #WhatWomenNeed to make the case for abortion on a holiday traditionally focused on making your special someone feel appreciated with kind gestures.

Clever at first, but it seems Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day have about as much to do with abortion as Valentine’s Day—not much. Do you really think women would rather have an abortion on Valentine’s Day than a romantic date with their loved ones?
