Pro-lifers rain on Planned Parenthood’s dismally attended “celebration” by Jill Stanek.
Cecile Richards (head of planned parenthood federation) needs to work on her charisma. Her big appearance for East Central Iowa planned parenthood’s 30th anniversary bash in Cedar Rapids drew more prolifers than supporters. Plenty of media showed up for the event and got a view of about 180 prolifers with plenty of signage standing in the rain outside.
The protesters, largely courtesy of Dubuque Co. RTL and the Pro-life Action League, outnumbered the attendees by a good deal, and this disproportion is quite normal.
Planned Parenthood doesn’t seem to be able to pack the house or engender much enthusiasm for any of its appeals, except among the media and politicians for whom they fund campaigns. They aren’t so good at inspiring the volunteerism.
(Remembers a national mailing from planned parenthood asking their supporters to email Yours Truly, which produced……….. YEP….. one Single Lonely Email in the in-box, no spam filters intervening 😉
