Faith & the public square

Sadly, I’ve just seen the Scott Brown TV ad where he claims he supported Planned Parenthood against cuts in Federal funding, which even if untrue, crosses a line for Pro-Life support in the voting booth. I had been endorsing him up to this point, but can no longer. I probably will vote for him, but he’s not making it easy.

Life Decisions International, LDI http://www.fightpp.org/ coordinates boycotts and letter writing campaigns against Corporations that donate to Planned Parenthood, so far 281 Corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood to the tune of $41 Million. The week of Oct. 21 the LDI Pro-Life Letter writing campaign targets: Beverage company Pernod Ricard, which makes Beefeater, Perrier-Joulet, Chivas Regal, Absolute, Kahlua, and Glenlivet. Mr. Pierre Pringuet, CEO Pernod Ricard SA, 12 Place Des Etats-Unis, 75783 Paris Cedex16, FR. +33 1 4100 4100 pernod-ricard.com
