i just finished changing the addresses of about 700 hundred planned parenthood subscribers, and it turns out all the "interesting" mail is at the bottom of the mail bin:
someone clipped this headline from a letter: "they've criminalized abortion in south dakota"
then wrote: good now Lets Do it Everywhar

on the outside of an envelope:
NO - MURDER HAS ALWAYS BEEN CRIMINAL

scrawled across a return address:
Peta thinks it is OK to kill baby humans but not rabbits & mink
woman's choice: just say "NO"

on the outside of another envelope:
Abortion is Murder
my primary motivations in this struggle are twofold. first, each person's primary right is that to their own body. second, every child should be born a wanted child. while assembling donation thank-you letters last week, i had a couple of ideas for my own slogans:
better abortion than abuse

an unwanted pregnancy=an unwanted child
better than either of those, of course, is this line i found on a sig file:
now that you've saved that gay fetus, are you willing to defend its right to marry?
but one of the frustrating things is that all this focus on abortion seriously skews planned parenthood's image, whose primary responsibility is actually for the reproductive health of both women & men. so my next project is culling through a few thousand quotes from women who participate in the Family Planning Expansion Project (FPEP) program -- a federally-and-state-funded program that provides its services to low-income patients. the ratio of federal dollars to state dollars is $9 to $1, but the federal funds are contigent on the state, who has to choose to support it every time a budget is passed. which means every two years, planned parenthood has to defend its services and prove how much women depend on them. the quotes i pick ultimately get added to a database that can be used for multiple purposes.

Comments:
In the wake of massive insurance cuts for Texas children a couple of years ago under the leadership of our "Governor Haircut", this came to me:

"You've got a right to life until you're born."

ooo, that's a good one.

Planned parenthood isn't just about killing babies and encouraging young women to be slutty by handing out birth control.

They also provide a wide range of care for women who don't have health insurance.

I wonder what that one woman would say if she knew that PeTA also kills animals in their shelters?
