Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
Planned Parenthood is working the phones, all right. As part of the groups desperate push for money, theyve introduced a new service: Planned Parenthood Wireless. This cell phone coverage would donate 10% of the monthly charges to the biggest abortion provider in America. Their email says that proceeds would help give women medically accurate information. But if people believe that, what they need isnt a cell phone service, but a wake up call! Planned Parenthood has always cared more about protecting its profits than protecting women. Maybe thats why the country is more skeptical about giving them money. A Zogby poll found that 68% of voters think that federal funds shouldnt go toward abortionand that includes money funneled to groups like Planned Parenthood. No wonder theyre looking for a better reception from cell phone users. Obviously, they dont get the message that the country has serious concerns about their motives. But as support keeps dropping, Americans will be sayingas the commercial goescan you hear us now?
