It’s not fair. I’m the first one in blogdom to post this piece on Planned Parenthood’s odd contest rules, but the Opinion Journal’s Best of the Web column gives credit to someone else.
- You’d better sit down before you read this item, that’s how shocking it is. An anonymous blogger called “The Mighty Barrister” reports that SaveRoe.com, a Planned Parenthood Web site, is running an “artwork and poster contest” in honor of next year’s 30th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Entrants are invited to submit “an original piece of artwork or poster that celebrates 30 years of choice and illustrates the concept that ‘Behind Every Choice is a Story.’ ” So far, so good. But scroll down to “terms and conditions” and you find this: Children under age 18 must have a parent or legal guardian’s permission to submit their designs and for us to publish it along with their name.
Okay, I have to admit that The Mighty Barrister does give me some credit (by the way, it’s Domenico, not Domenica; I’m not a woman).
Ah well, fame is a fleeting and dangerous courtesan.
Seriously, I’m just glad that Planned Parenthood’s hypocrisy gets a wide audience. Besides it was LifeSite News that actually broke the story.
