I often joke that I read LifeSiteNews.com so you don’t have to but I think a lot more people should read the site so they could see how anti-choicers talk among themselves. It only takes a few articles of their daily digest to make it abundantly clear that anti-choicers can scarcely conceal their bitter disappointment that they can’t stone women to death for fornication.
In today’s edition comes this:
On March 19, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona announced a benefit concert dubbed Rock ‘N’ Roe, to be held at The Kress Lounge in April. ALL Associate group AMEN responded with an immediate e-mail blast of its own, forwarding the Planned Parenthood announcement with a note asking Planned Parenthood opponents to call the lounge and “tell them Planned Parenthood is not WELCOME here! Ask them to cancel the below event.” The very next day we received an e-mail from AMEN leadership with exciting news. The nightclub had cancelled the event.
It can happen and often does happen just that quickly when community members respectfully inform business owners that it is a mistake to sponsor a Planned Parenthood event. Business owners do not like controversy, and the great majority of the time will bow out rather than risk the backlash of hosting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser.
This particular story has not ended, however. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona website now confirms that The Pint House Lounge at 265 S. Main Street in Yuma will host the fundraiser scheduled for April 18 at 5:30 p.m.
You are encouraged to contact The Pint House and ask them politely to cancel the event, reminding them that Planned Parenthood—the nation’s largest abortion chain—is not welcome in Yuma. The phone number for the lounge is (928) 782-0499. While you are at it, post a similar request on their Facebook page.
Kudos to AMEN for rolling out the un-welcome mat for Planned Parenthood.
There will be no abortions performed nor contraception prescribed at the Rock n Roe event in Yuma on April 18th, but I’m told there may be dancing. I think a road trip to Yuma might be in order to show the angry prudes they won’t menace us out of supporting reproductive rights in a fun way. And a big shout out to the Pint House, not only for standing strong for women, but for providing a great venue for Planned Parenthood’s event.
