Why is Planned Parenthood only attacking Trump and not his opponents?

Actually this post is about a little more than Planned is a response to Father Guarnizo's post here trump is unstable narcissist
I just could not log in over there because I am boycotting facebook :-)

Your Excellency (and Father G),

Sadly, I must disagree with your post for the following reasons (among others)

1. Regarding Trump being egotistical:  Being mentally bent towards narcissism is not unusual in presidents, nor in presidential candidates. Any 'humility' I see in any of these people reminds me too much of the Holy Father's much heralded humility displays.  Please!.....isn't it better to just be honest about one's raw ambition?

2. Trumps bluster is his negotiating style.  I think he sees himself as able to deliver  about 10% of what he promises.  So he promises 'the world' as his opening position.  Everyone knows he is exaggerating. This is a tactic which allows adversaries to save face when they return home and say, 'if it weren't for me, that crazy man would have gotten the whole world!"

3. Trump is the only presidential candidate  who is dead serious about defending persecuted Christians--even if Israel doesn't like it-- because it favors ISIS (why State of Israel prefers ISIS ).  Trump doesn't root for Turkey when it targeted Russian planes bombing al-Qaeda and ISIS-unlike his Republican opponents, nor does
Trump root for vile punk rock groups who desecrate Russian Churches (as did Cruz in paragraph 5 of this article Ted defends Pussy Riot).  Only Donald Trump has praised Putin for his willingness take action in Syria--and both of you should know that every single Christian in Syria supports Putin's actions against ISIS there.(Russian planes boot ISIS out of Palmyra)  Lastly I don't think Trump would ever get huffy and stomp out of a meeting with persecuted Middle Eastern Christians proclaiming 'I will not stand with you!"  as Cruz did here (I will not stand with you).

4.  Regarding Trump's position on abortion:......Even as I write this, Planned Parenthood is running an ad against Trump
(Planned Parenthood singles out Trump).  Why, Father and your Excellency, isn't Planned Parenthood running an ad against Trump's opponents?  Aren't a person's enemies a good measure of his identity? On the other hand, Ted Cruz is echoing Planned Parenthood's attack,  piling on Trump's comment about punishing women who get abortions....and regarding that! really, forgive me, but I don't see what is so obviously wrong with some sort of punishment, e.g.mandatory community service--for aborting mothers.  They could 'volunteer' in a maternity ward or in a home for severely handicapped infants,    Is it not pure hot-air to say we support passing a law that will have NO penalties, NO penance for about 100% of the law's violators?  Is that what we pro-lifers have been fighting for these past 50 years? a land where it is NOT OK to perform an abortion, but IT IS OK TO HAVE AN ABORTION? Would such a toothless law save one baby's life?  Newcomer Trump is not the only one to misunderstand the Right-to-Life position.  Include me!

I certainly hope I have not overstepped.  I hold you in highest regard.

your loyal sheep,
