The president of Planned Parenthood announced Wednesday the organization’s plans to become more involved with the political process and for the first time endorse a presidental candidate in 2004.
Gloria Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said Florida is a key battle ground in the fight for abortion rights, especially with State Speaker Johnnie Byrd’s proposed constitutional ammendment to require parental notification for minors seeking abortions.
A barbie doll, locked in a bird cage sat on each table during the breakfast meeting at the Westin Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, symbolizing what the group calls Byrd’s attempt to take away women’s rights.
Strange how the not-for-profit status of Churches can be jeopardized if they support a specific political candidate, but Banned Parenthood which receives millions from the government can endorse a specific candidate. I would be curious to know if in fact they are violating their status. But this will be a tough decision for PP to make, to determine just which democratic candidate is the most pro-abortion. They just might need to use the enny-meeny-miny-moloch method.
